I wonder how many people casting votes in Nov. '08 realized they were voting for Campaigner in Chief instead of Commander in Chief.

If the Democrats retain control of the House and Senate it will be because President Obama is a fighter, and he never stops fighting. That’s exactly how he got elected, and got Health Care Reform.

I think your really a conservative who likes to say the dumbest stuff to get the base riled up.

I wonder how much this cost us when Obama flies Airforce One around with other associated aircraft, SS, staff, just to campaign for the Democrats!

None of those idiots knew then even though they were warned by Bill Clinton and Joe Biden that Broke Obama WAS NOT READY.

Many of those idiots sure know it now though.

Obama's Trade War with China heating up

Chinese Rare Earth Embargo Spreads

Oct 20 2010,

Last month, the New York Times reported that the Chinese government clamped down on its exports of rare earth metals, which are used in the manufacture of all kinds of electronics, to Japan. Now, it appears that a similar thing is happening with Western countries like the United States, the Times reports, though Chinese officials deny it.

The Chinese action, involving rare earth minerals that are crucial to manufacturing many advanced products, seems certain to further intensify already rising trade and currency tensions with the West. Until recently, China typically sought quick and quiet accommodations on trade issues.

But the interruption in rare earth supplies is the latest sign from Beijing that Chinese leaders are willing to use their growing economic muscle. "The embargo is expanding" beyond Japan, said one of the three rare earth industry officials, all of whom insisted on anonymity for fear of business retaliation by Chinese authorities.

They said Chinese customs officials imposed the broader restrictions on Monday morning, hours after a top Chinese official summoned international news media Sunday night to denounce United States trade actions.

As we said last time, the mechanics of any rare earth metal embargo is important to manufacturers and suppliers, but hard to pin down. What's important, policy-wise, is that we could have a domestic rare earth metal industry in the United States, but we have refused to support it in the belief that the market would always deliver what we needed from low-cost Chinese suppliers.

That works as long as you can muscle any other country into sending you its raw materials for cheap and on your terms. We can't do that to the Chinese any longer, and their ideas about how markets should work and the role of political intervention in them are as weird and idiosyncratic as our own.

The President is a fighter; so is the Vice President, the First Lady, and former President Clinton.

They're all fighting for the American people, and working hard to get the Democratic message out, and to encourage people to vote.

I have an in law in Canada who went to the hospital only to find a mass. Two weeks latter with much begging a biopsy was done. It was found to be cancerous. We had to beg for a new doctor and more test. A month later and a little more is known about the cancer. After messing around for 2 months they gave her 3 months to live with no interest in treatment. Their only concern was to make her comfortable and move on. We are now just awaiting the inevitable. Rough Rough time!

I have another in law here in the states who just got diagnosed with a nearly identical cancer and circumstances. Doctors working their axx off finding out what the cancer is and treatments, PET test, etc. Within 3 day he knew more about his cancer in the United states then the in law ever found out about hers.

Before the end of the second week he will begin treatments at IU med Center.

When is the difference? Do the Canadians not care? No they care! It is the focus of the industry!

Canadian may as well be a union as their focus is on their industry.

America is focused on Capitalism. If your doctor doesn't get the best care for you he's done!

When Obama's health care is in place it won't be like Canada; at first! Over time as the focus shifts from what the patient needs to what the government requires we will wake up one day with one of the worst health care in the world!!

When you get sick, there is a Hospice room with your name on it!
