You're kidding, right. They're just having a ball embarrassing the US. And they would love to get their hands on him and see what information they can either get from him directly or see if they can potentially find a way to get more through his knowledge of our systems.

Or maybe they tell you what you want to hear to get elected, then once elected they know that to get anything done takes compromise. It'll be interesting to see who survives 2014, the stringent or the pragmatic.
stringent
-(of regulations, requirements, or conditions) Strict, precise, and exacting
pragmatic
- Dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations.
Your first paragraph is a perfect description of the primary process, especially on the Left, but the Right is guilty as well. During the primaries, Obama went hard left and then moderated for the general election. It's a game they all play.

Pragmatism can be a logical path to take. But not when it is used as an excuse to abandon their principles in order to ingratiate themselves with the power structure and in hopes that the left leaning media will be nicer to them.

Jay, are you saying it must be written law that the president communicate personally with Chinese & Russian leaders about Snowden's extradition? Good grief. This administration will say anything.

After Profits, Defense Contractor Faces the Pitfalls of Cybersecurity
By DAVID E. SANGER and NICOLE PERLROTH

WASHINGTON — When the United Arab Emirates wanted to create its own version of the National Security Agency, it turned to Booz Allen Hamilton to replicate the world’s largest and most powerful spy agency in the sands of Abu Dhabi.

It was a natural choice: The chief architect of Booz Allen’s cyberstrategy is Mike McConnell, who once led the N.S.A. and pushed the United States into a new era of big data espionage. It was Mr. McConnell who won the blessing of the American intelligence agencies to bolster the Persian Gulf sheikdom, which helps track the Iranians.

“They are teaching everything,” one Arab official familiar with the effort said.“Data mining, Web surveillance, all sorts of digital intelligence collection.”

Yet as Booz Allen profits handsomely from its worldwide expansion, Mr. McConnell and other executives of the government contractor — which sells itself as the gold standard in protecting classified computer systems and boasts that half its 25,000 employees have Top Secret clearances — have a lot of questions to answer.

Among the questions: Why did Booz Allen assign a 29-year-old with scant experience to a sensitive N.S.A. site in Hawaii, where he was left loosely supervised as he downloaded highly classified documents about the government’s monitoring of Internet and telephone communications, apparently loading them onto a portable memory stick barred by the agency?

The results could be disastrous for a company that until a week ago had one of the best business plans in Washington, with more than half its $5.8 billion in annual revenue coming from the military and the intelligence agencies. Last week, the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein, whom Mr. McConnell regularly briefed when he was in government, suggested for the first time that companies like Booz Allen should lose their broad access to the most sensitive intelligence secrets......

Hey, Jeb. I'm really not trying to be argumentative, I would just like to make sure I understand. Is it my characterization of conservatives you object to or my characterization of Rep elite or both, or more or what? If I'm missing what you think should be obvious, I'm sorry, but I would like to follow up, but I'm unclear as to what to address.
mostly just poking fun, Ag. Will get back later.

The government is trying to do what scared conservatives want, its just that its Obama doing it. Carrying on what Chaney started also trying to protect the country from terrorists, when he does it that's great, when Obama does the same thing its treason. Funny how you support an OBVIOUS traitor who has been around the world to China and Russia with his information. Of course China and Russia are spying on us just as we are spying on them. Snowden is a scumbag trying to peddle government secrets otherwise he would just given the info. to Wikileaks. Just as you are a scumbag for supporting a traitor instead of our country, no matter who is its current President.
Repugs all over the country are getting bills passed on guns, abortion and anything else they can to try and control what a free people do and think. Its none of your business what someone does in the privacy of their home, or what a woman can do with her body or for that matter your on personal interpretation of the Constitution when it comes to guns, the one that fits your agenda. If its a sin God will handle it, its not your place. On the big issues that government should be tackling, nothing is happening. So again Obama is doing the smart thing and doing what he can on his own. A minority of the country is stifling our governments ability to do its job, its the Presidents job to get it done. That's why the office has the power that it has, for times like these.

Not only do you drink to much of your moonshine you can't read either.
How am I a scumbag for supporting a traitor? Have you read anything that I have written that supports Snowden? I have said I don't know all the circumstances. I am not his judge or jury. I don't know if he is an obvious traitor or not. He could be a traitor and if he is then give him his dues.
Seems to me that Democrats are the main ones trying to push anti-gun legislation.
What do I care what people do in their own homes. In fact I don't give a da*n what people do as long as it doesn't affect me or other peoples rights, freedoms, or safety. On the other hand I don't want to be spied on either. No person in this country should be spied on by their own government unless the government actually has good reason to do so and with a legitimate search warrant. Maybe you don't believe in the Constitution?
I don't personally believe in abortion but on the other hand it is a women's own body and I don't feel that I have the right to tell her what to do with it. I am not God and she will have to answer to God for whatever decisions she makes.
The president is not infallible and does not walk on water.
Do I think Obama is a good president? No. He hasn't helped our countries economy, joblessness, or given credibility to the government to the people of this country . Just look at the total inaction on his part relating to all the scandals. He is weak and other countries know it.
You obviously haven't been reading any of my past post you idiot. If your going to write something about someone at least know what your writing about. People that know of me and that have followed any of my post know that you sound like a fool.
BTW, I am not a republican.

Hope the libs are happy. Interesting that tax information will be kept. That is further proof that the middle class will be footing the bill. The young and healthy won't fund it. It will be us.

What is your point?

"You're kidding, right?" was in response to IO's contention that China and Russia were somehow showing a shred of respect for our Constitution.

Yep. Here's the problem for the unioins. Obama paid the Unions back by bailing out the auto industry. He's not hearing it about the unions being exempt from Obamacare. So far, there may be a few loopholes, but for the most part, the unions are going to get the same dose as the rest of us. Poetic justice!

I don't care. She is awesome. I wonder why she isn't in the discussion for a hopeful for the next election. I think she'd give Hillary a run for her money. Ya think?

In line with this and your prior post, now Sebelius is talking to the NBA and NFL about having sports celebrities do ads to try and get young people (especially young males) to sign up in the exchanges. The administration knows that the whole thing comes tumbling down sooner (rather than the inevitable later) if the young people who are intended to bear most of the burden don't sign up.
Maybe it is just me being cynical, but does anyone else find it insulting that the administration thinks that using various celebrities is the best way to get their message out to young people? Or maybe it is just a recognition of how your typical young adult ("typical", NOT all) ranks in among the low information voter who only knows talking points - don't know.
