Card-carrying Republicans and dupes of the Republican party have been instructed to say that the USA and Ronald Reagan did a lot to help Solidarity (of Poland) and other anti-Communists in defeating the USSR in the 1980's. Here's the scoop; remember Aldrich Ames? Aldrich Ames has been in prison for several decades now. Aldrich Ames worked in the CIA for the Soviet-East European Division in Washington, placing him "in the most sensitive element" of the Department of Operations because it was responsible for Soviet counterintelligence activities. Ames had access to all CIA plans and operations against the KGB and the GRU, Soviet military intelligence.

By 1985, the CIA's network of Soviet-bloc agents began disappearing at an alarming rate. The CIA realized something was wrong, but was reluctant to consider the possibility of an agency mole. Initial investigations focused on possible breaches caused by Soviet bugs or by a broken code.

The CIA then blamed asset losses on another former CIA agent, Edward Lee Howard, who had also been passing information to the Soviets. But when the CIA lost three other important sources of information about whom Howard could have known nothing, it was clear that the arrests (and executions) originated from another source.

Let's cut to the chase. The Soviet Union collapsed despite the USA, not because of it. Capiche?

Just how godless and immoral are these Republicans and conservatives who so casually play politics with national security??

We spent billions of dollars and billions of words on an election to switch from President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House to President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.

Every election predictor was wrong, except one: Incumbents usually win.

Republicans have taken out a sitting president only once in the last century, and that was in 1980 when Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter. Sadly, Reagan's record remains secure.

The Democrats ran up against the incumbency problem in 2004. The landslide election for Democrats in 2006 suggests that Americans were not thrilled with...
