Obama, Netanyahu: Bad blood between key allies

By STEVEN R. HURST | Associated Press Ė 2 hrs 53 mins ago

WASHINGTON (AP)ó President Barack Obama heads into his second term weighed down by an American government snarled in partisan gridlock, but also by an unproductive relationship with the leader of Israel, the bedrock U.S. ally in the tumultuous Middle East.

And the puzzle that is the U.S.-Israeli relationship under Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is only growing more complex.

"It's troubled. It's the greatest dysfunction between leaders that I've seen in my 40 years in watching and participating," said Aaron David Miller, a scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center who served under six secretaries of state in both Republican and Democratic administrations. He was deeply involved in negotiations involving Israel, Jordan, Syria and the Palestinians.

"I don't think we are headed for a showdown," he said, "but the relationship will continue to be dysfunctional."

There are a lot of crazy people in this world.

My biggest concern is the psycho that sees the information some other idiot posts, gets obsessed, and decides to act on it.

It's just completely irresponsible to place other people and their family members in the way of potential harm just because of some petty dispute on a forum like this.

The people doing this would be the first to cry foul if it was being done to them and theirs.

Hey Posit. I had a question for you if you don't mind.
You keep posting that you "know me" and that you have my personal information.
I know that not all that long ago you were posting with a location just up the road from me. It was about the time some of your friends were posting my personal information.
Have we met in real life? Have you ever been to the old farm we used to live at and have you ever approached one of my family members out here in the real world?
Might just be the games you people play, but you seem to suggest repeatedly that you have some "connection" of sorts with me and my real life.
For example, when I moved you insisted that you knew for a fact that I was still living at the old address. Did it repeatedly.
Just a couple of nights ago you said you knew me in a reference to real life and not Topix.
So what's the deal and where are you getting your "information"?
Exactly how do you "know" me?
I know you virtually. In the virtual world and only by what you or others have posted.

Good read. They don't like truth here though. What they all fail to realize is that not even feel good Obama will save any of us from what's coming. And BTW, I'm not a racist.
Race has nothing to do with poverty.

The left thrives on making race an issue. If you object to tax hikes, you hate the poor. If you object to abortion, you're launching a war on women. If you support traditional marriage, you hate gays. Discussion and debate about important policies is shut down immediately with such tactics. Political correctness has accomplished one thing, burying the truth.

Poverty strikes ALL. Poverty doesn't care what you look like.

I have just composed a letter that I am getting ready to post but I saw this and wanted to address it first.

You are wrong.

I have posted totally on my own here and not in support of anyone except maybe RH. I found what was done to her disgusting and decided to give you all a taste of your own medicine. As it turns out, not a wise choice on my part.

And I never posted anything to or about you that I did not take directly from the things you yourself posted.

" you're here on his behalf and in opposition to the three of us who were recently threatened by you pooh-poohing (pun intended) the seriousness of those threats and trying to shift responsibility away from the source(s)."

As I said, you are most definitely wrong.

I don't even know who you are talking about. I am not here on ANY ONES behalf and I most certainly did not pooh-pooh ANY kind of threats made here. In fact, I reported them. I have no idea who made threats to you and others but I certainly do not condone them. And I never tried to shift any responsibility away from anyone. Not even myself.

We don't like each other. That is a given. But at least I have taken a long hard look at my ugliness here. Maybe you should do the same. You are not without blame.

My wife just finished reading all that I had written last night. And she was not a happy woman. She said I played mighty rough. I told her to read what others had written. She said she didnít care what anyone else wrote, she didnít live with them. Then she asked me how I would feel if some of the things I had said had been said to either her or our daughter? Let me tell you, that stopped me dead in my tracks.

It made me take a really long, hard, un-objective look at myself. And I didnít like what I saw.

I guess I figured that posting insults is like that study about violence on television. It is so prolific, you just donít notice it anymore. If I got immune to having insults hurled at me after only one week, then I figured you all were really immune after several years of them. I could have been wrong about that. I often am. My wife says my redeeming quality is that I know and can admit it.

So here I am, offering a heartfelt apology to all who will accept it. And yes, I do mean from MY heart. I really do have one even though it certainly was not in evidence here. I am sure that some, probably most, will scoff and not believe me. And who could really blame you. But I am being sincere.

Hopefully, there will be no more posts from me. Well, maybe one or two.(this truly is addictive) But if, and I really mean IF there is, it will be a kinder and gentler LMAO. That is a promise. And it will be posted under this name, the only name I have used here, believe it or not.

There will be no proxy server downloaded on this computer. I share it with my wife and she has put her foot down. It is such a dainty little foot but it wields a lot of power. Some will call me whipped. Probably so, but she is well worth it. She is the light that guides me. Always has been. I was almost blinded by the mirror I tried to hold up to some of you, but not so blinded that I canít see she is right. I am going to have to work very hard to redeem myself in her eyes and it makes me truly sad to know that.

I hope you will take this post as it is intended. As an apology. Those who do not, well, canít say I blame you. But unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about that.

Peace out.

Kudos to your wife! I wish everybody could come here with this kind of mindset. I hope your new attitude sticks, and others decide to follow your lead! You never said anything untoward to me, but I hope that those to whom you may directed those comments will accept your apology and move on with the kinder, gentler mindset you have decided to take.

Sadly though I have read deathbed confessions on here only to find the poster that died had became a new poster after all the sympathy was used up.

I have read of husbands, sons and brothers that were lost to war. only to find out later that it was all made up shit for attention.

I have read too many things on topix and the internet as a whole to have anything more then surface compassion for anyone I don't know in real life.

If you were mean to anyone on this thread I'm sure it was warranted and I doubt they deserve an apology. They probably deserve more ridicule because they are truly the bottom feeders of society.

White House tells Paul Ryan it wonít meet budget deadline
By Erik Wasson - 01/14/13 12:06 PM ET

The White House has informed House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that it will miss the legal deadline for sending a budget to Congress....

Under the law, Obama must submit a budget by the first Monday in February, but he has met the deadline only once. The annual budget submission is supposed to start a congressional budgeting process, but that has also broken down. The Senate last passed a budget resolution in 2009.
