Barak authorizes 300 new homes in the West Bank

Defense Minister Ehud Barak has authorized the building of 300 new homes in the West Bank, defying U.S. calls for a halt to settlement growth.

Who do these Jews think they are, Muslims??

I mean no one else pays any attention to the mouse, why should Israel??

Shut the hell up!

The EPA apparently doesn’t care about any negative comment of their GHG Endangerment findings, even internally, so the exercise in Democracy we did yesterday apparently was for naught.

“The time for such discussion of fundamental issues has passed for this round. The administrator and the administration has decided to move forward on endangerment, and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision… I can only see one impact of your comments given where we are in the process, and that would be a very negative impact on our office.”

Shorter. Shut the hell up.

I lived in Chicago for a while and this is just pure Chicago politics.

Can you imagine the explosion if this had happened during the Bush years?


The Mouse that said nothing.

From the Politico:

A couple of surprising words were missing from President Barack Obama’s 55-minute news conference on Wednesday: “Iraq” — and “Afghanistan.”

Also MIA: “Korea,” “Pakistan,” “soldiers,” “surge” and “war” — as well as the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.

“He feels equally comfortable on each role,” Axelrod said. “His focus isn’t just solving the problems as we find them, but hopefully forestalling some for the future.”

Obama aides say that the attack of 9/11 made war central to Bush’s presidency, whereas a twice-in-a-century recession has forced them to multitask — restoring the economy at the same time the president was engineering a surge of troops into Afghanistan.

“The war was the central story of his administration,” a White House official said. “For better or worse, we have an economic crisis and a number of other things going here that a president has to deal with.”

Leaving aside the fact that Bush received an economy going in the tank and that 9/11 drove us into recession....The question is, how stupid can Obamie be? 9/11 didn't go away when he became president. The War On Terror didn't just become last years fad and North Korea and Iran didn't go into a deep swoon induced by over heated brains with love for Obamie.

In fact, they both have raised the stakes and Obamie, like a The Mouse the Germans have nicknamed him, has collapsed. No. Not right. He never had anything to collapse from.

This president is going to bankrupt the country, destroy health care and get a lot of Americans killed. Depend on it!
