The Washington editor of the conservative National Review Online slapped down a critical article by Maureen Dowd this weekend, after the New York Times columnist said President Barack Obama's incompetence was to blame for the failure of gun background check legislation last week.

"It’s unbelievable that with 90 percent of Americans on his side, he could get only 54 votes in the Senate," she wrote. "It was a glaring example of his weakness in using leverage to get what he wants. No one on Capitol Hill is scared of him."

Robert Costa, who is deeply embedded in Republican politics, especially in Congress, agreed with MSNBC contributor Joan Walsh that Dowd's account of the realm of the possible on Capitol Hill was severely misguided.

“When you talk to Republicans, who supported Toomey/Manchin, they are glad the President was on the sidelines,” he said on MSNBC on Saturday.“The minute the President weighs into this debate, Republicans say ‘We can’t deal with this.’”

He added:“I don’t think the President could have done a lot to win Republican votes. They have only so much room to roam on the right. If you start to tiptoe towards the center, the grassroots really start to pay attention.”

The Manchin-Toomey amendment would have expanded mandatory background checks to firearm purchases at gun shows and Internet sales, but it fell five votes short Wednesday of the 60 needed to overcome a filibuster. It garnered four Republican votes, but suffered four Democratic defections.

Costa again said Monday that the idea Obama could have done more to pressure Congress into placing further limits on guns "is hard to see."

Jimmy Carter should be one democRat that should loathe Saddam. So much good work and effort (on the Peace Accords), ruined by that dictator and perpetrator of his own nations failed statehood, Saddam the Kurd gassing, oil pilfering, brutal hand chopping, flip-flopping rogue insane dictator.

A Russian FSB report stated that the Chechens began buying real estate in Kosovo in 1997, just prior to the US-led partition of Kosovo from Yugoslavia. Chechen Commander Emir al-Khattab set up guerrilla camps to train KLA Albanian rebels. The camps were funded by the heroin trade, prostitution rings and counterfeiting. Recruits were invited by Chechen Commander Shamil Basayev and funded by the House of Saud Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Relief Organization.[6]

Reasons not to put a lot of faith in wickedstoopedia.

Lots of history documented on that stuff-

In justifying the war the United States waged against Serbia back in 1999, the Clinton administration pointed out the moral obligation of the most powerful democracy on earth to defend the victims of persecution and ethnic cleansing. The actions of this administration, however, defied such a noble obligation. To put it bluntly, in the course of the Serbian-Albanian conflict over Kosovo, the United States was successful in defending the rights of the Albanian residents of Kosovo when those rights were violated by the dictatorial regime of Slobodan Milosevic.
However, the United States failed miserably in the other important goal of its voluntarily accepted responsibility: the protection of the Serbian residents of the area who became the victims of persecution and ethnic cleansing of the same magnitude that had provoked the American involvement in the Kosovo conflict in the first place. Tens of thousands of Serbians were forced to leave the area, and more than one hundred Christian churches and monasteries were desecrated and destroyed.
Regardless of the fact that the United States is in possession of "Camp Bondsteel" -- a large military base in Southeast Kosovo -- its human and technological resources have never been used to protect the Serbian victims of the Albanian ethnic cleansing. As a result, the Serbian presence in Kosovo has been almost eradicated.

Godfather of the immigration mess - Edward Kennedy
National Review ^| Nov 7, 1994 | Dan Stein

SENATOR Edward Kennedy has been the godfather of America's immigration policy since the mid 1960s. No other figure in American politics bears as much responsibility as he for the current pathetic state of U.S. immigration affairs.

Which basically consisted of-

The Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965, also known as the Hart-Celler Act, abolished an earlier quota system based on national origin and established a new immigration policy based on reuniting immigrant families and attracting skilled labor to the United States. Over the next four decades, the policies put into effect in 1965 would greatly change the demographic makeup of the American population, as immigrants entering the United States under the new legislation came increasingly from countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, as opposed to Europe.

Yep, Teddy screwed up big time. I admit it.
