Barack Obama, our next President

ACLU Court Filing Argues for Judicial Review of U.S. Targeted Killings of Americans
By Noa Yachot, Communication Strategist, ACLU at 11:54am

The courts have a crucial role to play in determining the lawfulness of U.S. drone killings of three American citizens in Yemen in 2011, the ACLU and the Center for Constitutional Rights argued in a brief filed last night in a lawsuit challenging the killings...

Being blunt, like honesty, is always the best policy.
First we had Bill "I did not have sex with that woman" Clinton, then we had John "I did not cheat on my wife fighting cancer" Edwards, then we had Anthony "see my weener" Weiner, then we had Barney "my apartment is used for prostitution" Frank and now we have Robert "hateful rightwing blogs" Menendez.
But the Cheerleaders couldn't report enough news stories and articles about a Republican toe tapping in a bathroom stall.
We're going to hear the same crickets we heard when Clinton was getting BJs in the Oval Office, Edwards was paying his mistress and love child on the side with taxpayer money, Weiner was showing off his private parts and Frank doing what Frank likes to do as we are with Menendez.
The same crickets we heard when the Federal Election Commission imposed $719,000 in fines against participants in the 1996 Democratic Party fundraising scandals involving contributions from China, Korea and other foreign sources.
But whatever you do...never, never, NEVER tap your foot in a bathroom stall.
Was that blunt and honest enough?
Michelle Malkin writes about the double standard in today's column:

So far, the magical “D” after Sen. Sleaze-Bob’s name has conferred supernatural immunity upon him. New Jersey Democrats are AWOL. Liberal columnists for the nation’s fishwraps of record remain uninterested. David Letterman was too busy trading fat jokes with donut-munching Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. And Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid stubbornly clung to his assertion this week that Menendez “did nothing wrong.”

But the mountains of Things Menendez Should Have Known But Conveniently Overlooked and Things Menendez Should Have Done But Conveniently Forgot just keep growing. My invitation to Democratic women on Capitol Hill to join Ladies Against Sen. Sleaze-Bob still stands. Guess it must have fallen through the cracks

From 9/11/01, Osama bin Laden became public enemy number one for the United States and its then-president, George W. Bush. Here is a video compilation of Bush’s comments on bin Laden, as well as a Democratic National Committee attack ad from 2006.

----------

Bigger fish to fry?? Like who??

OBL is responsible for the 9-11 attacks, so who were the bigger fish, or are you just talking thru your ass again??

Thought so.

Bush failed at capturing OBL, just as he failed at the two wars he started.

And it still drives you crazy, thus the never ending excuses.

When we lost track of Osama and had reason to believe he was dead inside one of those mountains, there were much bigger fish to fry and Bush concentrated on the bigger fish at that point.
It would have been distracting if the American public were led to believe Osama was the only mastermind of 9/11 and there weren't others just as dangerous, if not more so, in the al Qaeda ranks.
A lot of them were wiped out or captured in Iraq when they scurried over there to claim Iraq the frontlines.
This president would have ignored all other threats and all other al Qaeda ring leaders believing Osama was the brass ring when he wasn't anymore.
Honesty isn't this president's strong suit. Looking good and taking all the credit for someone else's tough decisions is.

Menendez’s cronies
Beyond senator’s prostitute woes

Put on your shocked faces: Since my bipartisan call last week for Democratic women to join the Ladies Against Sen. Sleaze-Bob movement, not a single Democratic woman in Washington has signed up. Here’s the thing. The brewing scandal involving Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), the new chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is not just a “sex scandal.” It’s a crony-corruption scandal of sordid, soap-operatic proportions.

Shady Menendez campaign contributor and best-friend-forever Salomon Melgen is the high-flying eye doctor at the center of the senator’s ills.

Melgen is owner of the Casa de Campo resort home, where he and Menendez reportedly engaged in sexual romps with a bevy of Dominican escorts, including at least one minor girl. In his latest statement on the matter Monday, Menendez repeated his blanket denials of any wrongdoing, recycled his attack on conservative media reporting the story and labeled accounts of the alleged island sex parties “smears.”

While his lips keep denying, his actions smack of lying. Last week, he sheepishly disclosed that he’d just reimbursed Melgen in January of this year for nearly $60,000 in expenses tied to two of three private jet trips to the Dominican Republic in 2010 — trips he had never admitted taking before.

Senate rules require prior approval of such private jet travel and luxury lodging. Senate rules also require financial disclosure of such gifts after approval.

Menendez ignored all the rules, blamed his staff and now wheedles that the matter simply “fell through the cracks.”

But you know what didn’t fall through the cracks? A special multimillion-dollar port-security contract Melgen wanted with the Dominican Republic. The politically connected ophthalmologist — who forked over $700,000 to help Menendez and other Democrats get re-elected last cycle — has zero experience in port security. But Menendez used a Senate hearing last summer to lobby for enforcement of the contract Melgen’s company has with the Dominican government.

Menendez also met with officials from the Obama State and Commerce departments on the matter, though he was careful not to mention Melgen by name.

One of Menendez’s longtime senior legislative aides, Pedro Pablo Permuy, will be in charge of operations, according to Melgen’s cousin and legal mouthpiece Vinicio Castillo Seman. The contract is estimated to be worth up to $1 billion over the next 20 years, according to The Miami Herald. How do you say “crony government” in Spanish?

Know-nothing Menendez denies any knowledge of his veteran aide’s involvement with the company, of course. Or rather, his lips have issued another in a long line of denials.

Wait, there’s more. While Melgen shelled out millions to Menendez and the Democratic Party over the years, he is a serial tax evader. The jet-setting doc incurred liens of $1.3 million before 2002,$6.2 million in 2011, and a still outstanding $11.1 million lien between 2006 and 2009.

And the FBI and US Department of Health and Human Services are now sifting through boxes of documents they carted away during last week’s raid of Melgen’s offices as part of a Medicare fraud investigation.

The feds finally acted after a document shredding truck was spotted outside Melgen’s clinic. I think it’s safe to say a “right-wing blog” didn’t send it.

What's ironic is they will target law-abiding citizens as being some kind of threat and then threaten to take away their second amendment right to protect themselves, but they won't even entertain the idea of cracking down on the sale of extremely violent videos or chastising Hollyweird for their contribution to gratutious violence.
Democrats are very selective, as it turns out, which rights and which citizens they choose to diminish and demonize.
But I do agree that raising the price of these videos is at least a small step in the right direction.
One of the violent video games you mention is made by the NRA.

Gonna blame that on the liberals, too??

Bush declared Bin Laden irrelevant.

In a news conference, a reporter asked Bush where Bin Laden was.

<quoted text>
Love it. You actually stole this topix name too...hilarious.
You're confessing you have a teeny weeny penis, debil? How teeny weeny is it?
At the moment or twenty minutes ago? It's about... I'm guessin' here... about 2 and a half inches long. But, remember, it's 7 inches in diameter an' I been sittin' out on the porch in the col'. You kiss it though and it turn into a two-suiter. You actually think a man measures hisself worriedly every day in case he don't measure up? Heheheheheheh, carol, honey, you lead a sheltered life. Now, your tits... that's a horse of a different color... you call me whatever you want, honey, Debil don' lack fo' self-esteem. Here, he loan you some...

Debil remember his first trip to Sweden, it where he learn magic. He stayin' with this family an' they got two teen-age daughters who nearly 6 feet tall and blonde and tanned even in June when it still pretty cold up there. We eat dinner and hang around and then the whole family take me down in the basement and we undress completely an' get in the sauna. No fuss no muss.

Debil feel the col' leach out his bones an' then he notice how noce it is to sit aroun' talkin' with all these attractive naked people. in fact he prob'ly noticin' too much cause pretty soon ol' Willy's at half-mast an' risin'. Finally they can't ignore it anymore an' everybody start laughin' an' makin' fun of up-tight Americans when they first see naked Swedes - they don' eat so much shit as we do.

So we chuckle it off, I manage to sit casually with a towel over my lap an' then somebody jump up an' we all rush out the basement door to the back yard. Debil run right along with them but he notice pretty soon it 35 degrees out there, but he caught up in the spirit of the thing so he run down to the lake behind the two young women an' he notice now that he cain't take his eyes off they asses so he gettin' blasted with pine branches which draw blood much to the amusement of all who, apparently, had endured this sort of thing before.

Then the woods open up to the lake and everybody charge in in great merriment an' first thing debil notices is that he not in Kansas no more. He start screamin' an' everybody come hep' him out the water an' he looks down an' his penis is GONE m-fcker, it slap not there no mo'. It magic! He scream again an' his hosts assure him it'll be ok once we get back in the sauna.

We do this several mo' times, the same routine an' pretty soon, carol, your penis just sort of give up. He hang out there dejectedly an' stop runnin' up an' down the flagpole an' then you fully appreciate him they way you would a Labrador Retriever puppy.

Then, later on while you layin' in bed with a toddy feelin' like you about to die, Helga knocks on you door an' she got a prim little gown on an' without sayin' a word she climb in bed with you and hug you back to life and she smells like the sea. That when you discover how boring life would be without a Labrador Retriever puppy.

That's a whole 'nother topic.

Alaska makes oil companies companies pay Alaskans for the resources they took out of the ground. It's called royalty payments.

Yet the oil companies still made tremendous profits!!

Palin was all for it, too! So it should be part of the TP plank!!

The oil and ng belongs to all Americans, not oil companies.

They should be allowed to drill for it and sell it, but just as in Alaska, we the people should get a share of the money.

But the Rclowns don't even want to take away big oil's tax breaks and subsidies, much less make them pay royalties to Americans.

Maybe I credited him too much wit?
