I say he is afraid. I have said it and I'll say it again. jaked is a coward of the first order.

You don't join AIP, listen to Limbaugh, vote for Alan Keyes, live your life in a non-stop freak-out about terrorists, immigrants, homosexuals, and people of color, and spend every free moment posting innuendo-laden blog comments because you are a happy, confident person.

He's a vain coward -- a Falstaff. Bluster enough to fill every blog the WaPo can dish out, but too afraid to question his own beliefs.

"June 5 (Bloomberg) -- Senator Richard Lugar praised President Barack Obama’s Cairo address to the Muslim world as a “signal achievement” and dismissed Republican criticism that the speech was too apologetic.

What we saw yesterday in Cairo was what the President's early supporters in Iowa and New Hampshire hoped for when they voted for him.

And he didn't "say" that Iraq planned 9/11 either, but one could be an Oxford professor of English and think he did. No matter, the whole "Muslim world" was somehow left with the impression that the US under Bush was at war with their very religion.

Guess they too should have parsed his words as forgivingly as you?

Posted by: chrisfox8 | June 5, 2009 5:53 PM | Report abuse

Yes, I understand what the GOP is trying to "make hay" about -- I just don't see it as a valid criticism -- President Bush never said that all Muslims were "terrorists" either. Maybe it's better if I just go back to "ignoring" you.

Posted by: JakeD | June 5, 2009 5:45 PM | Report abuse

(sigh) sorry Jake didn't mean to flummox you with words of more than two syllables.

"Terrorist" has been interchangeable with "Muslim" in Bushspeak, with GOPers all over America shaking their fists and raging at the entire Muslim world.

"Al Qaeda" refers to a specific terrorist group not esteemed anywhere, and Muslims are aware that they are not members.

Get it now? Should I write a little slower?

Posted by: chrisfox8 | June 5, 2009 5:32 PM | Report abuse

Someone can throw sh*t against the wall, but that does not make hay. If he hadn't denounced specific terrorist groups by name, perhaps there would be something to criticize. Complaining about no use of the word "terrorist" when he singled out "al Qaeda" is picking nits IMHO.

Now, there was plenty to be critical about, but as I said on an earlier thread (I for one) will not criticize Obama on that until AF1 is back home.

Posted by: JakeD | June 5, 2009 5:20 PM | Report abuse

Wrong as always, Jake, as always:

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/white-house-watch/middle-east/renouncing-bushs-worldview.html

"A whole speech about Islam, and President Obama didn't use the word "terrorists" even once?

Obama's conservative critics, along with some media observers, are up in arms -- which is a real testament to how effectively the Bush administration linked the one word to the other.

Indeed, it was a key part of its concerted campaign to stoke the public fears that made possible a global war that, in terms of scope and tactics, went far beyond anything that would have otherwise been remotely acceptable to the American public.

Here's how Politico's Josh Gerstein described Obama's offense:

In a nearly 6,000-word address Thursday extending an olive branch to the Muslim world, President Barack Obama managed never to utter the one word that comes to mind most often when many Americans think about Islam: terrorism."

Posted by: chrisfox8 | June 5, 2009 5:00 PM | Report abuse

So, I doubt the GOP can make any "hay" just because he didn't mention the generic word "terrorist".

Nobody ever said you were "afraid," Jake, but it's obvious that you are really desperate for some attention and you'll take any kind you can get. When nobody responds to your "questions" you start posting your "let me know" posts and if those don't work you start making fun of the retarded or something guaranteed to draw fire.

So in the end yeah you get some attention but you also make it clear that you have no life of your own. A wife? No way. You don't have a wife. People with spouses spend time with them, not fourteen hours a day of posting every five minutes like you do.

Compared to you, Jake, a guy doing life on a three-strikes felony conviction is a role model for small children.

JakeD - what would they say? their policies and beliefs are laughable. there is no defense for embarcing our enemies and shirking our friends, for spending like there's no tomorrow, for denigrating bush then adopting all his policies, for constantly apoligizing for being american, etc. this is a dark period in our history, much like the Carter years. If only we had remembered before November. It will be a hard lesson.

when they have no argument, it is usually the Lib's preferred method to call names, insult and post dumb jokes. Just take a lok at the rantings of drivl, nodebris and chrissuxit. Not a single instance of a valuable thought. that is unfortunately the face of modern leftism these days, nothing to add, only negativity to produce. Sad really. Traditional liberalism is really the finest approach to governing. It is called conservatism for the most part these days.

this could be interesting...

"After President Obama named Rep. John McHugh (R-NY) as his nominee for Secretary of the Army, progressives have been working to better understand McHugh’s current position on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the ban on gays serving openly in the military. While McHugh still intends to refrain from publicizing his own personal view on the issue until his confirmation hearings, yesterday in an interview with Roll Call, he hinted that he believes it’s time to repeal the ban:

“I have no interest as either a Member of Congress or as … secretary of the Army to exclude by some categorization a group of people otherwise qualified to serve,” McHugh told Roll Call.

He noted that the Armed Services Committee has not considered the policy “in any formal way” since 1993. In the meantime, “certainly, the recruiting-age population’s views have changed on that whole matter,” he said.

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said on Tuesday that McHugh shared Obama’s commitment to repealing the ban."

In memory of Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt Jr., Awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions at Normandy June 6, 1944.

Citation: for gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty on 6 June 1944, in France. After 2 verbal requests to accompany the leading assault elements in the Normandy invasion had been denied, Brig. Gen. Roosevelt's written request for this mission was approved and he landed with the first wave of the forces assaulting the enemy-held beaches. He repeatedly led groups from the beach, over the seawall and established them inland. His valor, courage, and presence in the very front of the attack and his complete unconcern at being under heavy fire inspired the troops to heights of enthusiasm and self-sacrifice. Although the enemy had the beach under constant direct fire, Brig. Gen. Roosevelt moved from one locality to another, rallying men around him, directed and personally led them against the enemy. Under his seasoned, precise, calm, and unfaltering leadership, assault troops reduced beach strong points and rapidly moved inland with minimum casualties. He thus contributed substantially to the successful establishment of the beachhead in France .

General Roosevelt was 57 years old; old enough that no one expected him to hit the beach on D-Day. He insisted that he accompany his troops and led the first wave. He carried a cane due to an injury from the Great War. He had a heart condition..

Roosevelt would be the only general on D-Day to land with the first wave of troops. He was the first soldier off his landing craft as he led the U.S. 4th Infantry Division's 8th Infantry Regiment and 70th Tank Battalion landing at Utah Beach. Omar Bradley later said seeing T. R. Jr. directing men on the beach was the bravest thing he ever saw.

At the same time, his son Quentin Roosevelt II was landing with the First Division on Omaha Beach

Theodore Roosevelt Jr. died in France on July 12, 1944

He is buried in France with his men at the American Cemetary at Normandy, next to his brother Quentin Roosevelt who died in air combat in the Great War.

Think about them this weekend. Think about a time when the sons and grandsons of Presidents led the way.

As it turns out, Roeder was heavily involved with Operation Rescue. So the question is, should members of terrorist organization be arrested and waterboarded to save the lives of innocent women? This is one of those ticking time bomb scenarios, after all. God only knows how many attacks on doctprs and women are being planned.

Looks like we're going to be hearing a lot from the new media darling -- Baby Dick.


"Liz "Baby Dick" Cheney, (as Marcy Wheeler calls her) has been all over television today criticizing President Obama's speech in Cairo.( In fact, I think she may have hit the trifecta, by being on all three cable networks in a neon lime suit.) Here's an example of her contribution to the discussion:

“I think that if we lived in a world where terrorism, and the slaughter of innocents, and Iran’s hegemonic hopes for the Middle East could be met, could be defeated, could be dealt with by sort of hand-holding going forward, then we’d be in a much simpler environment. But these are very, very tough issues. And I was troubled by the extent to which I heard moral relativism.”

For a real sense of her entire message, check out this exchange with James Zogby on CNN.

There has been a lot of speculation about why Dick and Liz have been out there so vociferously criticizing Obama after his having been extremely quiet during the years he was pulling Bush's strings. To me, it sounded like someone who was running for office. After today, I think maybe that's true --- except it looks like its Baby who's running.

But here's the really creepy part -- the daughter of the man who goes on television and defends the torture of innocent people is calling out president Obama for being a moral relativist --- which means that Baby would be running not only on Papa Dick's legacy, but on Mama Dick's too. That scares me more than the lime green pantsuit."

I generally don't like responding to your silly little troll posts, but I have to interject here, as you seem to think that $65k is out of line...

That's it? $65k? That's nothing, nothing at all. Considering mean salary in a state that has 3 metro areas (SF, LA, SD) in arguably the top 5 most expensive places to live.

California prison guards earn a maximum base salary of $73,728. According to the newly released survey, that's 39 percent more than the average base pay for prison guards in 10 other states and the federal government combined. When benefits including retirement and medical insurance are included, California's guards earn 29 percent more than the median earned by guards in the other states and the federal government.

The survey understates the disproportionate pay of California prison guards because it does not include overtime. Prison guards in California take home $16,000 in overtime on average every year. In 2006, 1,423 guards collected more than $50,000 in overtime; 36 earned more than $100,000.

Netanyahu is being outsmarted by Obama at every turn. The right-wing jerkoff won't stand up to the settler movement, not ever, couldn't if he wanted to and he doesn't want to, so Obama will go around him and appeal directly to the Israeli peace movement, which has the advantage of having world opinion (and logic) on its side.

Israel doesn't have four-year terms like we do. They can have an election anytime. Netanyahu is toast. And if he did anything to thwart the settlers they would have him assassinated just like Rabin. Nice little country.

Doug Grow of MN Post writes about how the primary process in MN is producing extreme candidates - whether from the DFL or GOP - that have limited appeal among swing voters. If you make it to the last 3rd of the article, he gets into how the 'Paulites' could have a significant influence in the GOP's process in picking a successor to Pawlenty. Grow also dips briefly into the challenges faced by the IP in running a realistically viable candidate than can compete with the big parties.

WEIMAR, Germany – President Barack Obama witnessed the Nazi ovens of the Buchenwald concentration camp Friday, its clock tower frozen at the time of liberation, and said the leaders of today must not rest against the spread of evil.

The president called the camp where an estimated 56,000 people died the "ultimate rebuke" to Holocaust deniers and skeptics. And he bluntly challenged one of them, Iranian President Ahmadinejad, to visit Buchenwald.

"These sites have not lost their horror with the passage of time," Obama said after seeing crematory ovens, barbed-wire fences, guard towers and the clock set at 3:15, marking the camp's liberation in the afternoon of April 11, 1945. "More than half a century later, our grief and our outrage over what happened have not diminished"

chrisfox8 - As I have stated, repeatedly, I have no hero's. I can't think of one "leader", from either party, that I agree with or whom I think pus the interests of the country before their own selfish interests. We are distinctly lacking in leaders. The ordinary citizen has more common sense than all of the politician's in Washington. A common criticism of politician's, in the heat of a campaign, is that they changed their opinion when they read a poll. What's wrong with that? What's wrong with a genuine representative's ticking their figure in the air, every so often, determining what the people want and doing it? If more of them did that we would end free trade, we wouldn't be outsourcing jobs, we wouldn't have gotten into Iraq, we would get out of Afghanistan immediately, we would have sensible national healthcare (likely something simple and cost effective like a national HMO), we wouldn't be dumping billions of dollars into propping up Wall Street banks, we would punish corrupt and fraudulent companies preying on consumers instead of allowing them to advertise on television, we wouldn't have anyone proposing new gun control laws, we would have legal gay *partnerships* (and these stupid debates and cultural wars would end), public employees wouldn't have outlandish pay and benefit packages (two times or more of what their private sector counterparts receive) and THAT would balance the California, Oregon, Washington, New York, etc. state and local budgets, we would have good schools with small class sizes, and a lot of other common sense things. Ordinary people have a lot more wisdom than self interested hacks and it's time that we recognized that.

the sleazy disgusting Rs continue to try to poison sotomeyor and obama with their phony trumped up and surreal racism charges: What a transparent crock. And it's all driven by the vile and despicable Grover Norquist.


"This week, however, prominent Republicans are attempting to distance themselves from last week’s smear tactics, with Politco reporting that they have embraced “toned down rhetoric on Sonia Sotomayor.” On the Sunday talk shows, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) urged Republicans to refrain from harshly-worded racism accusations. Sessions explained that “he would prefer fellow Republicans stop attacking Sotomayor over remarks about her background as a daughter of Puerto Rican parents.” Yesterday, Newt Gingrich wrote in Human Events that he should not have used the word “racist” to describe Sotomayor “as a person.”

But their new and supposedly more civil opposition strategy is no different than their old strategy. Republicans in Congress still appear to want the public perception of Sotomayor to be skewed by misinformation from the far right. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told CNN’s John King on Sunday that he had “better things to do” than to denounce conservatives who called Sotomayor “racist.” And now it seems his office is encouraging the spirit of this and similar arguments. As the Hill reports today, “Senate Republicans have kept their distance from conservative attacks on Sonia Sotomayor, but behind the scenes, they have encouraged activists to keep their crosshairs trained on the Supreme Court nominee”:

Lanier Swann, an aide to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), told a private meeting of conservative activists Wednesday to keep up their pressure on Sotomayor.

“Swann told us she wanted to encourage all of us in our talking points and that we’re having traction among Republicans and unnerving Democrats,” said an attendee of Wednesday’s weekly meeting hosted by Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform. “The point was we should keep it up,” said the source. “She told us at this meeting to put our foot on the pedal.”

The Hill insists that McConnell’s office “did not encourage conservative critics to accuse Sotomayor of being a racist,” but given that a significant part of the right’s “talking points” on Sotomayor have been devoted to the charge of racism, it is hard to argue that urging conservative groups “keep it up” is anything but a tacit endorsement of the racism attacks.

(from Gallup):

"Bottom Line

After President Obama, Pelosi and Cheney are arguably the next most prominent political figures active in the two major parties today. Both have attracted significant news coverage in the mainstream press this year, most recently for their positions on the government's interrogation policies for suspected terrorists.

That coverage appears to have helped Cheney -- at least modestly -- in the image department. Given Americans' concern about closing Guantanamo Bay, his improved ratings since March are arguably related to his ongoing outspokenness on waterboarding, tying it in with U.S. national security.

Pelosi has had a major, high profile role in the legislative agenda of Congress all year, most notably with passage of Obama's economic stimulus package in January; however the recent controversy over her possible knowledge of waterboarding -- and her claim that the CIA misled Congress about briefing her -- may have more to do with her depressed favorable ratings, which are down eight points since November."

Sen. Jim Inhofe said today that President Barack Obama’s speech in Cairo was “un-American” because he referred to the war in Iraq as “a war of choice” and didn’t criticize Iran for developing a nuclear program.

Inhofe, R-Tulsa, also criticized the president for suggesting that torture was conducted at the military prison in Guantanamo, saying, “There has never been a documented case of torture at Guantanamo.”
