Cheap shots: Piece in Our Time

At the counter-terrorism nuclear summit in Washington, April 1, via The Independent.
Because of all the dreadful things in our long national horror show, Obama's countless crimes and contempt for common decency, the worst, for Victor Davis Hanson, the thing that somehow caps them all, the most insulting, is... when he flashed a peace sign at an international meeting?

Imagine a Right-Wing PAC Campaign Ad in 2008 . . .
By Victor Davis Hanson — April 4, 2016
What? They didn't make that ad? I could swear I saw it dozens of times.

As for flashing the peace sign...

Gnostic warrior Ronald Reagan, the peacefullest of them all!
Proclaiming peace in March 2003, via. Readers with longer memories will recall it as around the time when this guy said, of the idea of a peaceful resolution to the Iraq "crisis", "For me it would be the perfect solution. I do not want war. I know what wars are. I know the destruction and the death that they bring with them. I am the one who has to console the mothers and widows of the dead. For us, that would certainly be the best solution. In addition, it would save US $50 billion." Words that still stir the soul today.

Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Joseph Biden, John Edwards, and Christopher Dodd all thought he was telling the truth when he said shit like that, too. Not me. But I'm sick of being angry at them for it.
