Merkel says has no secrets about her communist past

BERLIN (Reuters)- Angela Merkel has dismissed claims in a new book that she was more actively committed to East Germany's communist regime than she has acknowledged, saying she has never kept anything secret about her past.

The book, "The first life of Angela M.", says that Merkel, who will seek a third term as chancellor in a federal election in September, was responsible for Marxist-Leninist education in a unit of the state's youth wing, in a role that went beyond the cultural duties she has previously spoken of.

Asked about the claims late on Sunday after a screening of her favorite film, a 1973 East German love story, Merkel said she had always spoken openly and to the best of her memory.

"I can only fall back on my memories. You just have to accept this... if something else turns up, then I can live with it," said the 58-year-old chancellor. "What is important to me is that I never kept anything secret."

The book's claims are unlikely to affect Merkel's chances of re-election but they highlight how enigmatic she remains for many Germans after nearly eight years in power.

And to think W. Bush once gave her a shoulder massage.

That was an embarrassing day.

NBC: When it comes to this Benghazi controversy, the questions for non-partisans: Why did State push for the big change in the talking points? Was this about pushing back on the CIA, because it thought the agency was deflecting responsibility since the Benghazi outpost was more CIA than State? Was this about State doing CYA regarding CIA warnings about diplomatic security?

http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/05/13...

Are you a non-partisan asking the same questions as NBC - the same questions many of us have been asking for eight months? Because if you ARE partisan, blaming partisanship is a two way street when it comes to this level of betrayal of trust only for personal and political gain.

Galt does not want the government to do anything on this subject, or any other. In black teenagers want to ruin their lives for momentary pleasure, that's their choice.
So, therefore, you claim that it is only black teenagers who are having sex before marriage? LOL!

Who is it exactly that is saving him/herself for marriage? A handful of mormons or something. It's 2013 for kerrists sakes.

Blacks are 12-13% of the population, however, they are an obsession with the GOP.

80% of the people on welfare are single white women with children.

BINGO!
I think he is going to have to face that truth.
I don't think it will be easy for him to do so as the tide turns against him.
He could immediately redeem himself by standing up.
And quit placing drama in the way of justice.
We are supposed to be a just nation.
Not a nation of Justice blinded by drama.

The majority of unwed mothers statistically are among black women.

Blacks struggle with 72 percent unwed mothers rate.

No, that wasn't a Fox headline. It was NBC.

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/39993685/ns/health-...

Ghetto does not imply racism in any way, shape or form.

ghetto: Area of city inhabited by minority: an area of a city lived in by a minority group, especially a run-down and densely populated area.

Gosnell killed babies born alive in what would be called a ghetto.

The other day on the A&E network they aired "Storage Wars, Lake Elsinore". The contents of one of the unpaid units was auctioned off for $45. I'm sure it was your unit. You have the right to be an angry bitter old fool. All your worldly possessions gone, sold off for $45!

Galt would have more soldiers rush in to face the unknown, typical rightwinger has no regard for human life.

Think of it this way when a rightwinger plants a bomb at an abortion clinic sometimes they plant a second one set to go up a short time later so they can kill more people as they arrive on the scene to assist.

Sometimes it's prudent to err on the side of caution especially if the situation on the ground is unknown.

This shoot first ask questions later is what got us in Iraq the second time around.
