Obama arrives in Russia with full plate

Full story: Newsday

President Barack Obama's diplomacy is about to get a stern test in Russia, home of a wary public, a two-headed leadership and a lingering bit of hard feelings.

I see Michelle is again sporting the ammo belt look, with the belt worn very, very high above her hips.

Bitter losers coming with a fresh batch of old complains. I would have thought that the sting of losing so badly would have worn off by now... guess not. It pains you so to see President Obama getting his agenda through and receiving high approval ratings in the process.
Obama gets high personal approval ratings, the approval ratings on his programs is almost directly opposite. Like Bush, his personal approval ratings will continue to creep towards alignment with his policies. Not a good sign unless by some miracle jobs start appearing out of thin air from the stimulus, Cap & Trade passes and generates jobs and Public Health Care passes and pays for itself.

Here's the thing about that... in politics, one day is like a lifetime. President Obama was riding astronomic approval ratings for a very long time, but nobody thought that it would remain that high for as long as it did. Once you get down to policy and agenda pushing it's like making sausage, the process is very dirty.

But regardless of the ups and downs of being in power, I'd rather be in this position than in the pathetic situation that the republicans are in... out of power and in total disarray

True enough, but with people like Pelosi and Reid leading the Democrats and an agenda of massive entitlements, spending and increased bureaucracy, the Dems are setting the table for a GOP comeback. I would personally like to see a viable 3rd party emerge, but that is wishful thinking. Sure, the GOP is in the crapper (for good reason), but doesn't look like too long before the Dems allow the pendulum to swing back.

Tibbs, my man! I was wondering when you were going to randomly play your "4500 dead Troops" card. You just couldn't keep your ol' "ace in the hole" in your hand could ya? It was eatin' you up inside, commenting in yet another thread without getting that out there. Well played, my man.

No Friend those American troops are really dead and the phony wrap the flag around me foolishness will NOT change the status of the dead American Troops.

Sorry sir, if I offend you about me mentioning those American dead Troops, there are my brothers and sisters in arms, if you don't get it, I make no apologies..

I will keep mentioning the troops, whether you like it or NOT.

I am not offended, nor am I asking for any apologies Tibbs, its cool. I think just about all Americans get it and feel for our troops and their families. We just feel differently about the justificatons for, objective and success of their mission. I don't know what "phony wrap the flag around me foolishness" you speak of, but I would suggest you drop the self-righteous indignation. We get it, we really do, so you can quit with the incessant posting of the same thing on every thread you go to. Its an important topic, but everything doesn't have to come back to the Iraq war.

Can I ask a small favor?

Please don't refer to the crock, aka "stimulus" as such.

Either "Crony payback", "Union, special interest, and democrat 10-year pent-up pork and waste", or "Fraudulent p/i/s/s/i/n/g away of trillions of taxpayer dollars" would be better and more accurate. Thanks.

Newsflash!

"Feces" is not a flavor, no matter how much you ingest or regurgiitate. Not that you don't find it refreshing as daily sustenance. Enjoy, but do wipe your mouth occasionally, it can be a tad unsightly. No offense here, I'n in no way saying that the look doesn't suit you.

And hey, brown is beautiful, right? Do you prefer chunky or creamy?

There is no doubt that the GOP will eventually comeback; the question is what will they comeback as clinging to that pendulum when it swings back?

This is not your typical ['political Party used up their ammo and just need to reload']. This nation was devastated due to their failed policies and inept leadership. 9-11 happened on their watch and we lost a major city to Hurricane Katrina. This economy fell into a deep recession/depression and millions of Americans lost their jobs. Thousands of troops were killed in a war of choice and all of this while scandal after scandal fell out of the GOP closet. Americans will never forget this; the question is whether they will forgive and if they can ever trust the GOP with the keys to the castle again. And you don't think that we democrats will be reminding voters about all of this?

We are only 6 months in to the Obama Presidency; and there is so much that will happen by 2010 and 2012. Right-wing nuts are praying for the worst while patriotic Americans are hoping for the best. The thing the right-wingers should keep in mind is that President Obama and his Administration are playing chess; and the moves that they are making now will pay off 20 moves down the road. So to think that it is a given about the comeback coming so soon is very premature. My bet is that the right will be out of power for a very long time.

So obama's negotiations have resulted in the US reducing its military arsenal and backing off on the missile defense shield. Essentially we will be reducing our arms while reducing our defense.

How exactly does this benefit the US? Way to go barry, I guess they didn't teach "Negotiating" at Harvard. The russians are taking full advantage of barry's inexperience.
