"We were able to hold it off with George Bush. The idea that we might find ourselves fighting with the Obama administration over these powers is really stunning."
-- Unnamed and dismayed human rights advocate, on legalizing indefinite detention of alleged terrorists,
the New York Times, May 21
If hypocrisy is the homage that vice pays to virtue, then the flip-flops on previously denounced anti-terror measures are the homage that Barack Obama pays to George Bush. Within 125 days, Obama has adopted with only minor modifications huge swaths of the entire, allegedly lawless Bush program.
The latest flip-flop is the restoration of military tribunals. During the 2008 campaign, Obama denounced them repeatedly, calling them an "enormous failure." Obama suspended them upon his swearing-in. Now they're back.
Of course, Obama will never admit in word what he's doing in deed. Continue here.
And now, this video is full of chuckles, but I don't find it funny...at all.
Congress figures out way to assure the public they’ve read the bills they’re voting on.
Your tax dollars at work...

“We can’t keep on just borrowing from China,” Obama said at a town-hall meeting in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, outside Albuquerque. “We have to pay interest on that debt, and that means we are mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt.”
Holders of U.S. debt will eventually “get tired” of buying it, causing interest rates on everything from auto loans to home mortgages to increase, Obama said. “It will have a dampening effect on our economy.”
So says the guy who is giving us that unsustainable debt....
President Obama's budget will produce $9.3 trillion in deficits over the next decade.
Obama's budget will generate deficits averaging almost $1 trillion a year of red ink over 2010-2019.

I was on the Dating Game, too and my *dates* were about as cheesy as these guys. haha (Who is that guy she picked, they said he was an actor?)
My dad used to call me Sara Spicket Minor, although at the time I was probably in braces, and glasses, with flipped out semi feathered, semi frizzy hair. HA
My thoughts are with her. She is an Angel and an icon.
Conservative pundits mock, laugh and poke fun at the Dijon Mustard Gate story...
The Liberal left is in an uproar because the Right poked fun at the Dijon-Gate...

Or that the media REPORTED this in the first place???

Some writers on the other blog I write for, no quarter, are absolutely against any type of enhanced interrogation techniques and consider water boarding torture. Others not. But what I find utterly unbelievable is an argument in support of air raids, that kill hundreds of innocent civilians, by people who are against water boarding the mastermind of 9/11.
Ellis Henican just makes absolutely no sense to me with this argument. Waterboarding is a big moral failure, but air raids are ok?
Edwards accepted $57 Million in donations, all the while hiding the fact that he had had an affair, and fathered a child. He knew that public knowledge of this affair would ruin his chances to win in a general election, but it didn't stop him from seeking donations.
Even when the scandal leaked in August 2007 as a blind item, Edwards continued with his run for the White House. It is now alleged Edwards used some of those donations as hush money, and he is under investigation. It makes me wonder if he also used those donations to pay for his hotel rooms and romantic dinners....

There aren't really any great ones from St. Maxime and St. Tropez. It was too hot to take many photos, and the ones we do have involve swimsuits...
You can view them here.
You may or may not agree with her views, but the majority of the people in the country DO agree with her. And she has a right to her views, and a right to express her views. Without personal viscous attacks.
And what do the "feminists" have to say about the attacks on Miss California?
It's funny that they are so willing to personally attack Miss California, but Obama gets off scot free.
When liberal women attack:
