Even if he loses, which is a big if, I think we'll be seeing a lot of this bugger on the international stage. He's had a taste of power and his communist agenda is not likely to change. He'll not be fading away. Just my guess.
New York City Mayor Michael Nanny Bloomberg has told University of North Carolina graduates that last week's gay marriage vote shows there is still a lot of work to be done for civil rights in this country.
Bloomberg spoke Sunday to thousands of graduates at Kenan Memorial Stadium.
Bloomberg told them Americans have slowly understood since this country was founded that if the government can deny freedom to one person, it can deny freedom to everyone. The mayor says every generation has brought more freedom to this country, and he expects the latest generation to continue the work, especially after last Tuesday's vote approving a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in North Carolina. Greater freedom is supposed to also mean greater responsibility
[Bangla Daily Star] US President Barack Obama Ready to Rule from Day One... will not attend the Apec summit in Vladivostok in September, which comes soon after the Democratic presidential nominating convention, the White House said yesterday.
The announcement by White House front man Jay Carney came days after Russian President Vladimir Putin ...Second President of the Russian Federation and the first to remain sober. Because of constitutionally mandated term limits he is the current Prime Minister of Russia. His sock puppet, Dmitry Medvedev, was installed in the 2008 presidential elections. Putin is credited with bringing political stability and re-establishing something like the rule of law. During his eight years in office Russia's economy bounced back from crisis, seeing GDP increase, poverty decrease and average monthly salaries increase. During his presidency Putin passed into law a series of fundamental reforms, including a flat income tax of 13%, a reduced profits tax, and new land and legal codes. Under Putin, a new group of business magnates controlling significant swathes of Russia's economy has emerged, all of whom have close personal ties to Putin. The old bunch, without close personal ties to Putin, are in jail or in exile... said he would skip this week's G8 summit at the US president's retreat at Camp David, as he finalizes his cabinet.
Carney delivered the news to the press pool traveling with Obama in New York.
Obama had not been expected to travel to Russia for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit, as it takes place soon after the Democratic convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, during the week of September 3.
[Washington Post] President B.O.'s campaign is out with a tough new ad, "Steel," attacking former Massachusetts governor Willard Mitt Romney ...former governor of Massachussetts, currently the presumptive Publican nominee for president. He is the son of the former governor of Michigan, George Romney, who himself ran for president after saving American Motors from failure, though not permanently. Romney's charisma is best defined as soporific, which is probably why he is leading the Publican field. On the plus side, he isn't President B.O... 's record on job creation. The two-minute ad focuses on GS Technologies, a steel mill in Kansas City, Mo., that was bought by Romney's private equity firm Bain Capital and went bankrupt soon after. The ad paints Romney as out of touch with the needs of the local workers and concerned only with Bain's own profits. "We view Mitt Romney as a job destroyer," says one former mill worker in the ad. Another calls Bain "a vampire. They came in and sucked the life out of us."
I knew I could find it if I looked. You can too. Here's just a sample of what you find when you google gs technologies union strike. Now, who's the vampire, sucking the life blood from job creators all over the country?
Coming from the administration which has done nothing about the big Vampire Squids, nor even about Jon Corzine, this ad makes Obama look even more like a fool.
Ad is just playing on the Matt Taibi's popular meme/simile.
I know that area. Well. Steel industry, what are you talking about? Eff with KC's BBQ industry now that is words. Steel, stupid. Only steel KC worries about is if Dyson can get 2nd on the Rangers tonight.
[Washington Times] Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said Monday he will not compete in primaries in any of the states that have not yet voted -- essentially confirming Willard Mitt Romney ...former governor of Massachussetts, currently the presumptive Publican nominee for president. He is the son of the former governor of Michigan, George Romney, who himself ran for president after saving American Motors from failure, though not permanently. Romney's charisma is best defined as soporific, which is probably why he is leading the Publican field. On the plus side, he isn't President B.O... will win the Republican presidential nomination.
Mr. Paul said he will continue to work for delegates in states that have already voted and where the process of delegate-selection is playing out. He said that's a way to make his voice heard at the nominating convention in Tampa, Fla., in August.
"Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted," Mr. Paul said. "Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have."
