    Following that are a series of tweets Kasparov sent out urging the Republicans to stay focused on a bad program, and not got lost in the noise over a bad website.

    One of his most profound tweets was this one:

    I think he's got a point. The website will eventually get fixed. Then what do they gripe about? Keep the focus on the program. That's where the true evil lies.

    Mr

    So now we're looking towards a Russian private citizen for our domestic policy? That's a new low.

    Why is it a new low? [that question is rhetorical]

    no, the "low" is where one refuses to see the point of somebody just because he's a Russian.
    Kasparov offered good advice, and he should know what he's talking about, given that he was world champion in a game that required analysis and planning.

    Mr

    It's a low because we are a democracy and should determine our own course of action. But you people no longer believe in democracies because you won't accept the will of the people who elected President Obama twice and you won't accept a law that our elected officials passed. You preach breaking the law.

    I can hear the screams now if Obama had reached out to a socialist from another country for advice.

    1. Someone does not understand the use of the word "low".

    2. Someone does not understand this country is not a Democracy.

    3. Someone does not understand Obama is not the only one elected.

    4. Someone does not understand that just because a law has been passed it still can be overturned, repealed, and negated.

    5. Someone is not being honest about "preach to break the law. No one has done that.

    And again, something that the civil rights activists of the 60s did regularly to change unfair and discriminatory laws. And again, as I asked elsewhere earlier today, how is this different? But you're too chicken to answer that question.

    rotfl....when Nancy Pelosi, one of those elected officials who passed the Obamacare "law" is able to explain in even three long breaths how Obamacare is going to be beneficial to Americans (instead of saying let's try it so we can find out if it will benefit Americans) then maybe this ignoramus will shut up.
