I didn’t say it was right or wrong. Just that this is nothing new.

Does this mean Eric Snowden can come home now?

He could if I were in charge. He'd even get a parade.

I'm already committed to the Lebowski-Sobchak campaign. You should have spoken up sooner.

I'm starting to think the person who told the NYT about the pull back was Trump himself. He's apparently congratulating himself on Twitter for his restraint.

Does anyone recall how the really stable genius-in-chief accused Obama of planning an attack on Iran during the run-up to to the 2012 election? Yep. He said Obama wanted to look like a tough guy to increase his chances of re-election. But I'm absolutely sure our commander-in-putz has the nation's best interests at heart as he rattles his mushroom-shaped sabre.
Yeah, well, that's like your opinion, man.

He is doing what he always does:

1. Obama did something. Do exactly the opposite because eff that guy right?
2. Through bombast, general idiocy, or predictable narcissism, create an issue that absorbs media attention.
3. Back down and end the insane issue you just created.
4. Claim absolute victory.
5. Shout that no one wants to give you credit for that.
6. Get sad because you don't get the positive press attention and credit you so desperately want, you desperately NEED.
7. Get angry about Obama and how much better you are than him and how badly you're treated.
8. Think about what else you can do so much better than him, I mean, the best.
9. Repeat.

Zero percent chance he and his people didn't ok/leak the story on this.

I'm pretty sure it was Mad. My sources spotted him skulking around Pennsylvania Avenue last night with a high-end parabolic mic (the SnoopMaster 2000).

Mrs. psu_dad: You don't have any sources.
Me: I have sources out the wazoo. Or is it up the wazoo? I forget.

Great! I've been outed. Actually, I was in DC on a double-super secret meeting at the russian embassy to get more dirt on Hillary so's the putz-in-chief can lock her up once and for all. That will, I'm sure, guarantee his re-election in 2020 and beyond.

Actually, she probably does him more good out of jail. I suspect most Democratic candidates are currently looking for 6-foot poles with which they wouldn't touch a Hillary endorsement.
