See, This is Why

I can't ever go into politics. I can't fathom what on earth is surprising, or shocking, or exceptionable in this:

"I'll tell you my impression. We really in this last election — when I say we, the Democrats — I think pushed it as far as we can to the envelope. We didn't say it, but we implied it, that we if we won the congressional elections, we could stop the war. Now anybody who was a good student of government knew that wasn't true. But you know, the temptation to want to win back the Congress, we sort of stretched the facts."

He's not wrong. It was true then, it's true now. This might be the top news story today if Hillary Clinton also hadn't said something true but painful.

This is why. This and the arrest warrants. And those videos.
