Perhaps the Scariest Comment by a Presidential Candidate

The left has worked itself into a tizzy for comments by Dr. Ben Carson and of course Donald Trump but this has got to be the scariest thing I have heard (Thanks also to the Daily 202, from the Washington Post) from any party’s Presidential candidate:

Languishing at the bottom in polls of the Republican presidential field, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey ramped up his tough talk on foreign policy on Monday, calling President Obama a “weakling” and saying that the United States should threaten to shoot down Russian planes conducting airstrikes in Syria.

“My first phone call would be to Vladimir, and I’d say, ‘Listen, we’re enforcing this no-fly zone,’” Mr. Christie said on MSNBC. “And I mean we’re enforcing it against anyone, including you. So don’t try me. Don’t try me. Because I’ll do it.”

It is thankful that is virtually certain that Gov. Christie will win the nomination, let alone the election, but Republicans and libertarians better ask the question to THEIR hopefuls:  Will you start a war anbd if so where and why?

A no-fly zone is an act of war.  And we do want a shooting war with Russia.  If I were running (Lord and Nina forbid!) I would remind the NJ Governor that we is calling for war.  But we are great at starting wars and breaking nations and then paying to put them back together again.  (The Court of Montejoy in the famous book The Mouse That Roared [Read the book but never see the movie – they ruined it] was ahead of his time!)

I would also say:  Maybe Russia is doing us a huge favor – they can take out ISIS for us!  Maybe we should offer to help them instead.

All these warmongers in both leading parties ought to be sentenced to watching Wounded Warrior Project commercials for about a half-hour or so.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
