"Michelle Obama, Barack Switch Seats After Mandela Funeral 'Selfie'" "Obama creates international incident with 'selfie' at Mandela service" " RedState.com 's Erick Erickson tweeted: "Thank you Mrs. Obama for knowing how to behave at a funeral." "The first lady's reaction -- not just to the "selfie" but to her husband's chatting and joking with the young Danish prime minister -- was priceless. In one picture, Michelle Obama could be seen glaring over at him while he put his hand on Ms. Thorning-Schmidt's shoulder.

In another, it appeared the first lady and the president switched seats, putting Michelle squarely between him and the PM." "The "selfie" incident was the second unexpected controversy stirred up by the president in South Africa. Earlier, Cuban-American lawmakers publicly objected after Obama -- on his way to deliver his tribute to Mandela -- shook the hand of Raul Castro." What an outstanding diplomat. Image is everything these days right?

The truth? You wouldn't know the truth if it bit you in the posterior.
You are caught flat footed spreading lies and want to talk about the truth? Give me a break.

Art Pope sent Dan Souchek to propaganda school training in preparation for sending him out to try to mitigate the damage republikans have done to their image in NC with their attack on pubic education. It isn't working. Last night in Deep Gap, Mr. Soucek got roasted Soucek gave the crowd even more reason to be angry by breaking the open meeting law by banning pictures and video recordings. Soucek, the one breaking the law, had people ejected from the meeting by Watauga deputies because they refused to accept his line of BS . People have every right to be angry . Slash and burning our children's education in order to give tax breaks to the rich is not a plan for future prosperity. There is just no way to put a good face on that despicable act.

Looks like Obamacare is finally building steam. According to radio news today, over 250,000 have signed on this month in 36 states.. It is far short of the original goals, but with the site now supposedly being able to handle 800,000 per day, the 7 million enrollment by May looks possible.
The most horrible ,disastrous, teeth gnashing, garment renting doomsday scenario for republikans would be that Obamacare ends up working and eliminates the underclass of persons who cannot get medical treatment. Wouldn't that just be an absolute disaster.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove (see trends).

The latest figures include 24% who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17.

This is the presidentís best job approval rating since early November after several weeks of earning the worst daily ratings of his presidency.

Uhh Oh. With Obama making a comeback and republikans approving a budget, another shut down will not be possible for a while. Looks like republikans may even forced into being FOR something and coming up with plan of their own. Recognition for something other than being stupid will not be easily achieved.

Shaking hands with a communist leader at an occasion representing
healing of broken relationships and brotherhood among men. The republican question: How the hell does that promote more tax breaks for the rich? Go figure.

Why was Mandela special? Mandela....could see the humanity in his enemies...he had the ability to change his enemies...that's genius folks.Certainly, I've never seen anything like that.i admire few people.Mandela was one of them.A true original. I Recall Stephen Biko, and Medgar Evrers in America.the Jewish kids who went to Mississippi and were killed, as portrayed in Mississippi Burning,i don't recall their names.

I watched a program on PBS about Mandela. He said he hated his enemies and those who had incarcerated him for 27 years, until he realized that his hate did not hurt them, only himself. Then he realized that as long as he harbored hate, they still had him. So he let it go. Those few sentences uttered by Mandela, were especially insightful to me . Hate is a heavy burden .

Ideology can overshadow even the instinct for survival. That is a curious quirk of human nature. Hitler thought that Odin (Woten) would emerge to assist him and his armies in their effort to save humanity from the degenerates. Obviously it didn't happen. That could be because Odin didn't agree with Hitler or because the power of Odin is only a myth.

Tired of hearing about nothing but failure? A bipartisan initiative begun in the last Bush administration, and continued under Obama, has cut the fatality rate of children in Africa from malaria, by FIFTY PER CENT.
