Israel Tells Obama Where To Stuff Chatting With Terrorists

Livni may not be able to form gov't due to large right-wing bloc

That's what lobbing thousands of ever more powerful missiles has gotten the poor misunderstood Islamofascists.

'The Left was hit hard in this election'

Well, sending out your home movies of sawing people's heads off, bombing schools and of women being stoned may have had something to do with it as well.

Maybe Hamas needs a new PR firm. They already have the Democrats and the media in the bag for them.

Leahy's Dishonest Fishing Trip To End Run Executive Privilege

Of course this is from AP and they inadvertently put the lie to Leahy's words.

Sen. Leahy proposes truth panel on Bush era abuses
The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is proposing a "truth commission" to investigate abuses of detainees, politically inspired moves at the Justice Department, and whole range of decisions made during the Bush administration.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said the primary goal of the commission would be to learn the truth rather than prosecute former officials, but said the inquiry should reach far beyond misdeeds at the Justice Department under Bush to include matters of Iraq prewar intelligence and the Defense Department.

Leahy outlined his suggestion for a "truth and reconciliation" commission during a speech at Georgetown University Monday.

"I'm doing this not to humiliate people or punish people but to get the truth out," he said.

I think it would be a great idea if we, the people, had a "truth and reconciliation" commission to investigate Congress and its corruption, its lies, its collusion and its abuses. Maybe we could start with all the Democrats that voted for the Iraq War, listing WMDs as a main reason to go in, but now have ads up, have put in print and publicly say that even though they saw the same intelligence that Bush lied.

Then there are so many more issues like the abuse of appliances by members like Freezer Jefferson or the activities in love pads all over DC like the White House and anyplace Barney Frank has lived.

This is not to humiliate people or to punish them but to get the truth out. Of course some like to be punished and other aren't capable of being humiliated.

Obama & The Week Three Rookies Making The 'Crisis' Into A catastrophe

Feeling the need to prove government is the only answer to our problems, Obama and team went to the citizenry. Unfortunately, not knowing how government works, they forgot to tell the people who make the bloated, fat and ineffective government possible.

Stocks Tumble as Bailout Plan Is Unveiled
US stocks fell sharply Tuesday in a broad-based decline as the government announced details of its latest bailout plan.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down nearly 300 points after Treasury Secretary Tim Geither revealed details of the bank-bailout plan. Earlier, the blue-chip index was down less than 100 points.

Some market pros said the market selloff was simply a case of buy on the rumor, sell on the news.

Tony Crescenzi of Miller Tabak said Geithner spoke to the wrong street: Main Street instead of Wall Street.

"The problem is that Geithner needed to speak more to Wall Street, where the problems lie, rather than stay at a distance as he did, and leave Wall Street with too few details with no roadmap by how it might find its way out of current difficulties," Crescenzi wrote in a note to clients.

The "Financial Stability Plan," as it's now called, consists of four main components:
1) It will set up a public-private fund to mop up to $500 billion of spoiled bank assets.
2) It will set up a consumer-lending facility to support up to $1 trillion in new lending.
3) It will devote up to $50 billion to help stem home foreclosures.
4) It will provide new funding to banks after a "stress test" to determine if the bank is healthy.

Some market watchers remain skeptical over the benefits of the plan and legendary investor Jim Rogers told CNBC it could even make things worse. The bailout will plunge the US further into debt and it is designed by the same people who failed to forecast the crisis in the first place, Rogers said.

I think I will now use the Obama model and borrow tons of money to pay back money that I have already borrowed and to complete the financial fiasco, I will tick off my boss so that I will get fired. That just about sums up what the Rookies from ChiTown have accomplished so far.

Obama's Viagra Plan Slow To Raise Stimulus

But it puts a big glow in the unions sack full of coersion.

Specter, Collins & Snowe

I wonder just how much did their votes cost the Democrats and Obama?

Stimulus bill narrowly survives Senate test vote
An $838 billion economic stimulus bill backed by the White House survived a key test vote in the Senate on Monday despite strong Republican opposition, and Democratic leaders vowed to deliver legislation for President Barack Obama's signature within a few days.

The vote was 61-36, one more than the 60 needed to advance the measure toward Senate passage on Tuesday. That in turn, will set the stage for possibly contentious negotiations with the House on a final compromise on legislation the president says is desperately needed to tackle the worst economic crisis in more than a generation.

The Senate vote occurred as the Obama administration moved ahead on another key component of its economic recovery plan. Officials said Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner would outline rules on Tuesday for $350 billion in bailout funds designed to help the financial industry as well as homeowners facing foreclosure.

Monday's vote was close but scarcely in doubt once the White House and Democratic leaders agreed to trim about $100 billion on Friday.

As a result, Republican Sens. Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania broke ranks to cast their votes to advance the bill.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., battling a brain tumor, made his first appearance in the Capitol since suffering a seizure on Inauguration Day, and he joined all other Democrats in support of the measure.

"There is no reason we can't do this by the end of the week," said Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. He said he was prepared to hold the Senate in session into the Presidents Day weekend if necessary, and cautioned Republicans not to try and delay final progress.

He said passage would mark "the first step on the long road to recovery."

Moments before the vote, the Congressional Budget Office issued a new estimate that put the cost at $838 billion, an increase from the $827 billion figure from last week. Ironically, the agency said provisions in the bill intended to limit bonuses to executives at firms receiving federal bailout money would result in lower tax revenues for the government.

In this, the first major test of Republican will, these three rolled over like little puppies anxious to please, but it is worrisome to wonder who they were really pleasing.

How much will these three, and others if they feel there is no personal price to pay, cost our party and our nation over the next 4 years?
