Feckless Republicans Copy Insult

Republicans appeared to have dug out in unison last week the insult "feckless" to throw at President Obama for being unwilling go all Barry Goldwater over Crimea and lob a nuclear weapon through the men's room in the Kremlin.

I was sure I'd seen that same foreign policy insult hung on an earlier US President, and it became clear when I found it why the GOP talking point factory didn't want to attribute "feckless" to this earlier critic - - feminist writer and critic Camille Paglia - - even though Paglia's piece was critical of Obama domestic policy.

The damage done to U.S. prestige by the feckless, buffoonish George W. Bush will take years to repair. Obama has barely begun the crucial mission that he was elected to do.
So the GOP just took the word "feckless."

How feckless is that?

They should go feck themselves.

First Republican wise man John McCain flies to Turkey for a photo op with what turns out to be a leader of Al Qaeda in Syria. Then he travels to Ukraine for a meet and greet with the leader of a Neo-Nazi political party. This is the sort of wise leadership we should have voted for? Obama has his faults but he's not freaking insane. Are Republicans deliberately mimicking the characters from 'Doctor Strangelove'? Do they think it was a documentary?
