I’m sure it was a noble lie http://www.vox.com/2015/5/11/8584473/seymour-hersh-osama-bin-laden Just kidding, the eyewitness reports from the Seal Team 6 guys makes what happened on the ground somewhat indisputable. Hersh thus sounds pretty goofy here in places. As to the Pakistani cooperation… I have a pedantic obsession whereby I get rankled at Democrats non-stop lying and douch-y press conference explanations for things where the lies are ostensibly justified by, ya know, the Democrat’s pursuit of egalitarianism…but this I think is OK, its within the Adminsitration’s purview to strategically dissemble etc about the nature of Pakistani cooperation. Re Hersh, I recall him last here http://www.minnpost.com/eric-black-ink/2009/03/investigative-reporter-seymour-hersh-describes-executive-assassination-ring where he was also at the time regarded as out on the fringe. Uh, JSOC teams out and about doing assassinations? His description there has been borne out, that’s how it works apparently. That’s what the OBL hit was.

Actually, the thing about being poor is I think that you can’t actually afford to pay that dollar. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/ben-carson-tax-condescending-poor It probably is that a dollar the poor pays in taxes is a dollar diminishment of their standard of living. At least way more so than the affluent middle class. Dude does not have elaborately developed wisdoms on things besides neuro surgery, he’s out of his realm. Not qualified.
Chait stains: Obama bested the field, he wasn’t affirmative action in any way http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/05/clinton-obama-affirmative-action-presidents.html Hillary: it would stand to reason there would be more meritorious candidates available than an ex-presidents wife, provided the party’s field were not held clear for her. If affirmative action is a poor descriptor, oligarchy / nepotism aren’t.
Oh I think I can. http://www.vox.com/2015/5/11/8584541/john-oliver-maternity-leave Fallacious argument, I reject the premise.
