"I see Obama using the Bush strategy in Afghanistan, turning over the financial crisis to those that created it, 
  no clear plan for energy in the future, and economic and political power ever increasing in China and India. 
  Obama ran one of the most compelling campaigns in memory, but he is frighteningly clumsy in the office he 
 sought so brilliantly. There is time to turn the first term around, but it looks increasingly clear that a new set 
  of advisers and policy are in order."

R.I.P. Washington Times


You'd think that somebody with a direct line to the Almighty, and tapped by Jesus to save mankind on Earth, 
would be able to come up with a better business plan for running a daily newspaper. But, alas, after nearly three 
decades of unrelenting financial losses, the Rev. Sun Myung has decided to pull out. According to reports, it's more 
like Moon's U.S. college-educated sons, as part of an internal family power struggle, have decided to finally cut off 
the endless stream of Asian church cash that's kept the Times afloat.

With the announcement that 40 percent of the Times' staff is getting pink-slipped, and that the daily's no longer even 
going to bother with traditional who/what/where/when/why reporting, instead publishing an opinion-heavy publication 
that will be free of charge at a diminished number of local outlets, Times owners look like they're angling to be a 
Weekly Standard wannabe, churning out lots of predictable GOP Noise Machine opinion prattle. 

What is clear is that the daily's days as a functioning newspaper are now over.

The Washington Times never intended to make money.
The Times existed to balance the Washington Post - but the WaHoPo turned into right-wing whores.

Why lose money to echo the lies that a bigger newspaper is printing?

"Calling in generals and admirals to discuss troop strength is like me taking my youngest to McDonald’s 
to ask if he likes french fries. I’ve been saying I don’t agree with him on Afghanistan, I think he screwed up 
on healthcare reform, on Guantánamo and kicking Greg Craig off...   (Obama) called me and told me that he 
heard that I was demeaning him and I had to explain to him that it wasn’t anything personal, it was an honest 
difference on the issues. And he said, 'Well, let’s talk about it.'"

Obama - Warming up to Torture?


Obama has asked an appeals court to dismiss a lawsuit accusing Bush bastard John Yoo of authorizing torture, 
saying federal law does not allow damage claims against lawyers who advise the president on national security issues.

Such lawsuits ask courts to second-guess presidential decisions and pose "the risk of deterring full and frank advice 
regarding the military's detention and treatment of those determined to be enemies during an armed conflict," 
Justice Department lawyers said Thursday in arguments to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.

Other sanctions are available for government lawyers who commit misconduct, the department said. It noted that its 
Office of Professional Responsibility has been investigating Yoo's advice to former President George W. Bush since 
2004 and has the power to recommend professional discipline or even criminal prosecution.

I wish we had the Obama we voted for.
Seems like just one year ago, he was vehemently against torture.

FUBAR: America's Right-Wing Nightmare 
by Stephen Sherrill & Sam Seder (Audio CD) 

Use this link to order

 Subject: Or, did Hillary run to his right?

During the campaign, there was not a dime's worth of difference between Obama and Hillary on policy issues. 
Both campaigns and the media worked feverishly to gin up differences, but there really weren't any. 

So how did Hillary come in at less than 1 % on that not-crooked Kos poll?

Since the Clintons are the absolute definition of centrists, that would indicate Obama is a centrist too. 
A lot of people wanted him to be more of a liberal, but should not be surprised that he isn't. 

They told us Obama was the most liberal senator in Washington DC, even to Teddy's Left.
And nobody lifted a finger to correct that "false" impression. 

As a proud left-wing extremist, I disagree with a lot of the decisions he's made....but I'm not surprised.
Still, a good centrist, like Bill or Barack, is a million times better than any Republican. 

You are correct.
Besides, we've got no where else to go :)

Like you, I trust him to do the best he can with a nearly impossible situation, 
and I think at the end of the day he'll have accomplished some great things. 

Can he accomplish great thing by being nice and trying to reason with barking dogs?

Unlike you, I think he's working pretty hard at cleaning up the Bush shit-pile. 
He's just not doing it the way you or I might suggest.
 Dan L

Turning his first big issue - health care - over to Reid & Pelosi has been a diasaster.
The cable networks ran wild with "that Muslin imposter" while Obama took August off.
He's lost 24 points with white people in the last few months.

He's got to change direction before he gets to the cliff..

"Clinton and Obama are both mainstream Democrats who occupy exactly the same political terrain

I'm Not a Liberal Anymore
 by Suzi Gablik


I can hardly stand reading the Huffington Post these days. The stuff coming out of "progressive" mouths is all too often 
on a par with Glenn Beck's abusive rants--both sides playing football with the President as the ball --kick kick kick. 
The straw that broke this camel's back was an horrendously ugly and smearing essay Christian Parenti wrote last week 
for Huffington after Obama's Afghanistan speech.  I have compressed into a single paragraph his outrageous statements:

"Like Lyndon Johnson who escalated in Vietnam, Obama lives in mortal fear of being called a wimp by Republicans. 
To look strong in front of swing voters he will sacrifice the lives of hundreds of US soldiers; allow many more to be maimed; 
waste a minimum of $30 billion in public money; and in the process kill many thousands of Afghan civilians. 
The real purpose of these 300,000 [sic] soldiers is to make Obama look tough as he heads toward the next election. 
He used Afghanistan to show that he was not the scared, pussified Democrat portrayed in GOP spin. There is 
nothing else to Obama's Afghan strategy. Victory in Afghanistan is reelection in 2012. Whatever the outcome, 
Obama has made it clear: he is willing to kill to get reelected."

Just get me out of here, folks, fast.

Why leave the party (If that's what Suzi meant) because of what one person said or wrote?

Dennis Miller gave up a lifetime of liberalism because he heard someone call Rudy a Nazi.

And why isn't Suzi used to the Democrats turning on their president?

Sen. Joe Lieberman (CT-Nothing) has been such a major player in the health care reform debate 
that publishers are falling all over themselves to offer him book contracts. To take advantage of his 
most recent wave of self-importance, Holy Joe has rushed a book onto the market to go toe-to-toe 
with his kindred rogue warrior, Sarah Palin. His previous book, In Praise of Public Life (2000), was, 
though a runaway bestseller in the Lieberman family, the lowest selling political book of the 20th century.

Not deterred, Lieberman has rushed a sequel into stores for the holidays, and we got a sneak peek. 
The title refers to the Lieberman’s thesis, which is that Americans don’t deserve health care 
and should just learn to love their pubic life. This philosophy grew out of his “tough love” approach 
to rape victims and morning after contraception. You’ll remember how Lieberman said he believed hospitals
that refuse to give contraceptives to rape victims for "principled reasons" shouldn't be forced to do so.

“In Connecticut, it shouldn't take more than a short ride to get to another hospital," he said.
That’s our Joe.
This and other sage medical advice is offered in In Praise of Pubic Lice.

Thanks to Alan B

Randi Rhodes Goes Rogue on Afghanistan


Randi Rhodes is on the bandwagon, backing the Obama Blitzkrieg Plan, and cheering the thirty thousand soldiers to Afghanistan. 
I thought Bush was supposed to be the cheerleader. I heard Randi say, in a bellicose voice, that Obama is simply doing what 
America voted for, because Obama campaigned for the presidency on increasing the number of troops in Afghanistan, and that 
Obama was going to "double down" and send more of our young men...

Obviously, our fighting men are capable of killing more Afghans. That is what will happen. A bigger Afghan body count may
ensure USA anxiety relief, but only temporarily; it is a bad panacea for lasting peace. Perhaps America, after being held captive 
for eight years by George Bush, is suffering a collective Stockholm Syndrome. We are too traumatized to change course, 
afraid of accepting what we have done, and continue to do.

Pick up the Pulitzer Prize book by Samantha Power, titled “A Problem From Hell - America and the Age of Genocide”. 
The U.S. is fighting illegal wars, and we are killing hundreds of thousands of people...because George Bush is an idiot.

Randi is sticking with her president - that's not what most believers have done.

"It was an ignorant moment for Harry Reid...when Democrats get in trouble, 
  they play that race card, that slavery card, that civil rights card."
      -- Michael Tom Steele,     Link

 Harry Reid does it again.

 Regardless of what he meant, what he said gave everyone another chance to dump on him.
 "Racism and the Holocaust - is that how the Democrats govern?"

 If he can't learn to group words together better then that, why is he in politics?
 Reid ought to at least be better than Ol' Bart when it comes to making a point in an argument.
 And what start a damn fight if you're not going to finish it?

 Remember when the Rethugs demanded Rep Alan Grayson apologize for his health care talk?
 Grayson told them "Suck on this!" and he raised lot of money in the following days.

"Suck on this, GOP!"

 Democrats are tired of fighting with their pinkies sticking out.

 Harry, you'll be out of politics soon , but until that day,
 don't start any more fights unless you're willing to smackdown your challengers.

 Subject: Obama the mortal

Bartcop, you published a line by Dana Milbank

"This is what happens when true believers mistake a mortal for a messiah."
No, this is what voters demand what they voted for. 
The whole worship bit is a feverish creation of the right. 

I don't know how you can say that.
We heard dozens if not hundreds of stories about people who didn't like politics
walking miles in the cold rain to hear Obama, only to come away overcome with emotion.

I hardly see the letdown - he's considerably better than say, Drugs Limbaugh, mouthpiece of the new GOP. 
I'm not happy with things, but I'm better off than I would be if Sarah Palin were a heartbeat from the Presidency.
 Steve in MT

Those who supported him the hardest are the most bitter.
Obama connected with people and many of them now feel burned.

Paying A Fearful Price


The idea that fewer than 1 percent of Americans are being called on to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq and that 
we’re sending them into combat again and again and again - for four tours, five tours, six tours - is obscene. 
All decent people should object...

The reason it is so easy for the U.S. to declare wars, and to continue fighting year after year after year, is because 
so few Americans feel the actual pain of those wars. We’ve been fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan longer than we 
fought in World Wars I and II combined. If voters had to choose right now between instituting a draft or exiting 
Afghanistan and Iraq, the troops would be out of those two countries in a heartbeat.

What we are doing is indefensible and will ultimately exact a fearful price, 
and there will be absolutely no way for the U.S. to avoid paying it. 

Since I'm in my fifties, I don't mind a draft :)

But they have to make it a law that EVERYBODY goes - no champagne units for the cocaine-snorting, 
Jim Beam-drinking, whore-mongering sons of powerful and connected Hitler financers.

Obama, DNC Idiocy
 by Kos


Note: Obama sent a note asking for $5 from all supporters 

Really? All we have to do is send the DNC $5 and we get ponies? The same DNC that is enabling 
corporatist Democrats to water down and destroy any hope for health care reform? That DNC?

This is so freakin' obnoxious I can hardly stand it. We are about to get a turd of a "reform" package, 
potentially worse than the status quo. We have the insurance industry declaring victory, Republicans 
cackling with glee, and the administration is using that piece of shit to raise money?

Obama spent all year enabling Max Baucus and Olympia Snowe, and he thinks we're supposed to get excited 
about whatever end result we're about to get, so much so that we're going to fork over money? Well, it might 
work with some of you guys, but I'm certainly not biting. In fact, this is insulting, betraying a lack of understanding 
of just how pissed the base is at this so-called reform. The administration may be happy to declare victory with 
a mandate that enriches insurance companies, yet creates little incentive to control costs or change the very 
business practices that have screwed so many people. But I'll pass.

I got that e-mail too and I was angry about it but Kos did a better job of verbalizing it.

Bad Week for Tiger Woods

  "Want to buy some shaving cream?"


Tired of the Tiger Woods story? Many are; it's dominating the news, but take heart:
There's a place where you won't find any Tiger Woods ... and it's not where you'd expect.

Bloomberg did a little digging into Nielsen's television records, and found an interesting statistic: 
Ads featuring Eldrick have completely vanished from prime-time television since he got caught. 

Nielsen said 15 different ads featuring Woods have appeared in prime time since June. 
The last one was a Gillette spot that aired on Nov. 29, according to Bloomberg. 

Prior to Woods' troubles, he was a phenomenally popular and easily recognizable celebrity. 
There's a lot at stake here, not just for Woods but for entire companies banking on his image.

 Here's the deal, Eddie - it's not about "getting it right" and it' not about pleasing your guitar teacher
 and it's certainly not about who can hyper-hammer the most notes on a guitar in a single second.

 It's about generating EXCITEMENT and nobody does that better than Jimmy Page.
 Has your band ever filled a stadium with 77,000 people, Eddie?
 No, you haven't because your band never generated that much EXCITEMENT.

 Has your band sold 200,000,000 albums, Eddie?
 No, you haven't even gotten to 100M because your band never generated that much EXCITEMENT.
 Last time Zeppelin got together - 32 years after your disrespectful little tantrum, 
 one reviewer said Page was so exciting, "it was like watching him invent electricity."
 When's the last time YOU got rave reviews like that, Eddie?

 One last thing - Page has colors and shades but all Van Halen songs sound the same.
 Can anybody name a beautiful song Van Halen ever wrote?

 There's more diversity on In Through the Out Door than in all of Van Halen's discography.

When Will It End?


I spent some time in transition with my counterpart in the unit that was returning home at the beginning of my unit’s 
deployment.  In a span of two weeks he sought to teach, explain and summarize all the knowledge he had gained 
from his deployment. As the transition period ended, and as he was about to fly home, our discussions turned from 
professional to personal, and he slowly began discussing - privately - his personal thoughts.

He said the hardest thing about his deployment "was the change in the deployment time line from 12 to 15 months. 
It was a punch in the gut. The night we officially found out that we were going to be extended, the soldiers went crazy."
He continued: "People’s attitudes changed for the worse. Our soldiers seem like they have a dark cloud over them."

"When they were told they were extended, some of the soldiers had already flown back home," he said. 
'The Army made those soldiers come back after hugging their families, and extended them another three months. 
Well, what do you think? A lot of people in that unit just mentally gave up. 

And now we're beefing up Afghamistan?
