Obama - and Russia - Looters!!
Found this old photo comparing how news stories cover photos of black "looters" versus white "finders" - both of whom entered empty grocery stores to take food after Hurricane Katrina.
The first thing that came to mind was yet another story that Hillary Clinton might try to steal the nomination away from Barak Obama - she probably feels deep in her heart he's a "looter" - not a finder, or goddess forbid, a real competitor!
The second thing that came to mind was how Clinton (and Bush) defended the U.S. bombing the hell out of Serbia in 1999 to protect allegedly violent secessionists in Kosovo. But when Russia does the same thing, bombing inside Georgia to protect allegedly violent secessionists in South Ossetia in 2008 - woah! It's looting! Aggression! Disproportionate Response!!! (Which of course it is, but no more than the U.S. bombing Serbia!)
See more of my comments on this conflict at my VermontCommons Secede & Survive blog. And, as usual, Justin Raimondo gets it right in his article The Real Aggressor.
