Please sit down and buckle your seat belt.
My question is this: Where was the Obama administration during this selection process?
And it will continue unless those with their hands on the spigot in Congress finally decide to turn off the tap."
The group's report comes at a sensitive time for Mexico, which is protesting the passage of a law in that criminalizes undocumented migrants." (AP)
There is a lot of concern about Article 67 of Mexico's Population Law:
"Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal ... are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues."
Isn't Mexico doing the same thing that they accuse Arizona of doing? (Mexican Hypocrisy? U.S. Neighbor Has Its Own Tough Take on Immigration)
Don't get me wrong.
I understand completely why Mexico wants foreigners to prove that they are in the country legally.
And I agree with Pres Clinton for signing the statue that authorized the feds to check a person's immigration status.
I agree with Mexico and Pres Clinton.
I just don't agree with the hypocrisy coming from Dems and Mexico!
Check out our interview with Fausta Wertz:
A report by economic experts at the Health and Human Services Department said the health care remake will achieve Obama's aim of expanding health insurance — adding 34 million Americans to the coverage rolls.
But the analysis also found that the law falls short of the president's twin goal of controlling runaway costs.
It also warned that Medicare cuts may be unrealistic and unsustainable, driving about 15% of hospitals into the red and "possibly jeopardizing access" to care for seniors.
The mixed verdict for Obama's signature issue is the first comprehensive look by neutral experts." (AP)
Despite arrests and the dismantlement of at least 20 kidnapping “cells,” the crime wave has turned the city into the “kidnap for ransom capital” of the United States.
Police say the crimes are linked to the local drug trade — the surrounding Valley of the Sun is a national distribution hub for the U.S. drug trade — but others suggest that Mexico’s narcotics war has now fully engulfed the city." (Newsmax)
Obama's support has dropped below 50 percent from nearly 70 percent after 15 months in office, Gallup opinion polls show."
"Dear Barack, my old friend. I want you to use all your powers, all your skills, to make me an offer I can't refuse.
I'm Mr. Celebrity-get-me-out-of-here, and you better get me out of here.
Of course, it's tough to believe Blago, a rather corrupt Chicago politician.
At the same time, it's tough to believe that Barrack Obama grew up in the Chicago Way without getting his hands dirty or making some bad deals.
BO is a man who hung around with some rather strange people on his way to the White House: the racist minister that he never heard, Tony Rezko and the whole Chicago machine!
For the sake of the country, let's hope that Pres BO told the truth about his involvement in the sale of the US Senate seat.
We don't need a president with legal problems, specially the kinds of legal problems that Chicago is well known for.
Again, let's hope so because the country does not need this right now.

“Civility” does not mean that we should not spew hate at anti-war protests; that’s grass-roots popular protest.
It doesn’t mean that we should not employ Nazi and fascistic labels to tar the President of the United States like John Glenn or Al Gore or Robert Byrd did.
“Civility” does not mean that a shrill Hillary Clinton should not scream that the Bush administration is trying to silence critics, or suggest that the commanding general of an entire theater was lying to Congress in ways that require a “suspension of disbelief.”
That’s needed pushback.
O Ye of Little Memory! Do we recall any American shock when the Guardian published Charles Brooker’s lament — “John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr. — where are you now that we need you?”
And I don’t recall anyone felt that language was getting too heated when Howard Dean, head of the Democratic Party, fumed, “I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for.”
And was it not The New Republic that highlighted Jonathan Chait’s infamous “Why I Hate George W. Bush” article?
Of course, there was that thoroughly civil New York play, “I’m Gonna Kill the President.”So, please, spare us the sanctimonious rot about being shocked by conservative metaphors like “lock and load” or “targeting” vulnerable Democratic districts."
