President Barack Obama swiped at Texas Gov. Rick Perry, criticizing him as "a governor whose state is on fire, denying climate change."
Obama also poked at the audience reactions at recent GOP presidential debates, singling out those who cheered at the prospect of someone dying because he didn't have health insurance – and those who booed a gay service member.

Obama just cant get a brake this week. After the FoxNewsPolitics Twitter page was hacked the Obama campaign website was hacked on Tuesday and invited supporters to two fake anti-government events hosted by an unnamed "Commy Obama."
The campaign's application for mobile devices, such as iPhones and iPads, directed users to two events titled "Rules of Politics" scheduled for noon on Tuesday in Washington.
"1. Politicians and other public servants lie," reads the event description provided on the Obama campaign website. "2. Politicians tell you what you want to hear and offer to provide things for 'free' to get votes. 3. When government buys, the people pay."Obama just cant get a brake this week.

Reporting from Washington — President Obama built his Afghanistan strategy around the bet that he could quickly turn around a "must win" war by narrowing his goals and sending more troops. This weekend he will make his clearest acknowledgement yet that doing so will actually take years.
At a summit in Lisbon this weekend, Obama and other NATO leaders will endorse a plan to gradually turn combat responsibility over to the Afghan army and police by 2014, a timetable that will keep tens of thousands of U.S. combat troops in Afghanistan well beyond the end of Obama's first term.
U.S. and Afghan officials previously have made it clear that Afghanistan will need U.S. help against the insurgency for many years, but the transition plan being presented in Lisbon will be the first time Obama publicly backs such a time frame.Reporting from Washington — President Obama built his Afghanistan strategy... more
“Coffee Party” Founder Is Obama Campaign Operative
March 3rd, 2010
Billed as an alternative grassroots movement to the Tea Party, which has been for the most part absorbed by mainline Republicans and Neoconservatives, the “Coffee Party” promised to wake up politically minded Americans and offered a different avenue for the freedom movement.

Progressives who fail to take Sarah Palin seriously do so at their peril. In my mind, it's pretty obvious that she already is laying the groundwork for a run in 2012. And given her actions over the past two months, it is a safe bet that she will do anything and everything in her power to win.
The key question is not whether she will challenge Obama, but rather what kind of race she will run. Is Palin merely another ambitious politician willing to say and do anything to get elected, or are we witnessing the emergence of a genuinely anti-democratic populist — a successor to such notorious figures as Charles Coughlin, Huey Long, Senator Joseph McCarthy, and George Wallace?
I believe that Palin could represent a significant threat. She favors demagoguery over democracy. She celebrates her own lack of judgment and experience as her best qualifications for the office she seeks. She slanders Obama and other opponents, suggesting that they are willing to sell out America. She uses her supposedly folksy background to attack the media and elites as out of touch with average Americans. And she plays to the mob, appealing to and encouraging the most reactionary, angry, hateful, and fearful elements of our society.
To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln, Palin appeals to the worst angels of our nature. Her supporters are ready, willing, and determined to follow her regardless of what happens between now and Election Day 2012. They will never accept an Obama presidency, even if he were to revive the economy, fix health care, and capture bin Laden. They are counting the days until Palin is able to push him aside and assume power herself.
It would be easy to suggest that Palin is little more than a demagogue, that she would not move the United States away from its democratic traditions. And in fairness, we are still too early in Palin’s career to determine whether she is a genuine threat.
But do we really want to take the chance?
If Palin really does represent a move toward anti-democratic populism, she already is far more dangerous than any earlier demagogue. She’s not merely some nutjob with a radio following (Coughlin), or a regional figure who failed to move onto the national stage (Long). She’s the former Republican nominee for Vice President of the United States, a best-selling author, a canny entertainer, and a political superstar whose public profile resembles that of Angelina Jolie more than, say, Mitt Romney.
No previous populist anti-democratic candidate -- not Strom Thurmond in 1948 or George Wallace in 1968 -- ever had a serious chance of getting elected. Palin does. Change genders, and Palin is a modern day evocation of Senator Berzelius “Buzz” Windrup, the anti-hero of It Can’t Happen Here, Sinclair Lewis’s Depression-era alternate history of America under a dictatorship:
The conspicuous fault of the [Democratic] Party. . . was that it represented integrity and reason, in a year when the electorate hungered for frisky emotions, for the peppery sensations associated, usually, not with monetary systems and taxation rates but with baptism by immersion in the creek, young love under the elms, straight whisky, angelic orchestras heard soaring down from the full moon, fear of death when an automobile teeters above a canyon, thirst in a desert and quenching it with spring water–all the primitive sensations which they thought they found in the screaming of Buzz Windrip.
Sarah Palin is ready. Should things get worse over the next three years, her folksiness and rhetoric may start appealing to more than just the far right.
So I'll say it again: dismiss her at your peril. Because if you do, you'll wake up with a Palin Administration in power. Even though "It Can't Happen Here."J. Brown is Senior Fellow and Washington Director at the Institute for International... more

President Barack Obama, in an interview with The Washington Post, said on Tuesday that in the two years leading up to his election he "didn't campaign on the public option" for insurance coverage.
Could that possibly be true? A plan for government-run insurance has been the focal point of the soon-to-be-concluded health care debate; the catalyst of white-hot partisan warfare; and the provision that progressive and conservatives alike have deemed the arbiter of whether legislation is a success. Is it possible the political world was, by-and-large, confused when they assumed this was what candidate Obama had wanted?
The Obama campaign clearly did incorporate the public option into its health care agenda. The then-candidate signed a statement put together by the pro-reform group Health Care for America Now, which included the provision as part of its principles for reform. On issue forms Obama filled out for several publications he pledged to "create a new public health plan for those currently without coverage." His campaign arm, Organizing for America, continues to champion a "public health insurance option to provide the uninsured and those who can't find affordable coverage with a real choice." The White House website says that: "The President believes [public health insurance option] will promote competition, hold insurance companies accountable and assure affordable choices. It is completely voluntary."
It does, indeed, seem fair to say that a public option for insurance coverage was a component of the Obama health care agenda. But exactly how serious a component was it?

Double click the link above.........What is Obama afraid of?......You seeing this Video.....He is a fraud.......He did not Arthur his own Book ........He was groomed by William Ayres since NYC days!....................................................................................................................This is unprecedented here you have the presidency worried about the lone voice of one News Outlet whose job it is distrust government. "Be the oppisition" "Check's and ballence" The president joked in the past that “You all voted for me except for Fox News”. The remaining News Outlets were nothing but Cheer Leaders for this Presidency from Before the Election. Now I will give you 2 Examples 1. Van Jones was a admitted Communist who also thought that George Bush caused 9-11 working as a Zar, meaning he has the Ear of the leader of the Free World. Jones was every bit as Dangerous as Reverend Wright telling Blacks that whites caused Aids to Kill all Blacks. The rest of the Media had nothing to do with forcing him to step down. Fox did. Example #2. Right now there is Proof positive that a Terrorist actually wrote Dreams of my Father. William Ayres and Doren traveled to Cuba to learn how to make Bombs. And actually planted one in the US Pentagon and also was responsible for killing many Police Officers. Ayres Doren and Obama all lived within shouting distance from each other in NYC Ayres and Obama were also on the same campus in NYC at the same time.... Obama admits during that time he was involved in the Antiapraited Movement in NYC as was Ayres and Doren with the Weather Underground. During this same time the Black Panther Movement and the Weather Underground combined forces. Rudolph Geuallini was the Prosecutor who tried and convicted many of the Black Panthers along with the Weather Underground during the 80’s working together..... not the 60’s as Obama would have you believe. So there you have it Obama Ayres Doren all in the same City at the same time on the same Collage Campus working together for the same cause “antiapartite movement. For them not to have known each other would be unreasonable. And yes again Obama is a complete fraud. Bill Ayres did write his book. Ayres is Obama’s Mentor more so than anyone even Rev Wright and 20 years of attending that Hate Church. If you do take the time to listen to the videos with a open mind you will know Exactly why Obama needs to discredit Fox News because they are about to expose him for what he is…A Fraud and a Lie groomed by terrorest William Ayres. PS: ask your self why Obama will not release “ANY” of his School records?

The Obama administration has decided to bolster efforts to support Somalia's embattled government, U.S. officials say, by providing money for weapons and helping the military in neighboring Djibouti train Somali forces.
The goal is to stem insurgent advances in the Horn of Africa. But the plan would commit the U.S. to a greater embrace of a shaky government atop one of the world's most chaotic states.
An administration review of U.S. policy toward Somalia found an urgent need to supply the Somali government with ammunition and weapons as it struggles to confront increasingly powerful Islamic militants.
Officials said the U.S. would not conduct the training and that the U.S. military would not be in Somalia. The U.S. would provide logistical support for the training, and provide arms to the Somalis.
Several U.S. officials spoke about the emerging plan on condition of anonymity because the details have not yet been finalized.
Alarmed by terrorists' gains in Somalia, the administration decided it needed to do more to support Somalia's transitional federal government, officials said. They said the U.S. has agreed to reimburse other African nations, primarily Uganda, that will transfer small arms and ammunition to Somalia. To date, officials said, only ammunition has been shipped.
Somalia's violent insurgency has spilled over onto U.S. soil, raising the fear that a failed state there could affect U.S. security. Young Somali-American men have disappeared from the Minneapolis region and are believed to have traveled to Somalia to fight with al-Shabab militants. One strapped on explosives last fall in a coordinated attack in Somalia, becoming the first U.S. citizen to act as a suicide bomber.
U.S. counterterrorism officials say it is a disturbing pattern, one that mirrors al-Qaida methods and could spawn homegrown insurgents and suicide bombers in the U.S.

Right-wing Israeli interests are engaged in an all out Twitter attack with hopes of delegitimizing the Iranian election and causing political instability within Iran.
A writer on pakalert.wordpress.com says that he was intrigued by the sudden appearance of tens of thousands of Twitter allegations that Ahmadinejad stole the Iranian election. He investigated, he says, and he reports that each of the new highly active accounts were created on Saturday, June 13th. “IranElection” is their most popular keyword. He narrowed the spammers to the most persistent: @StopAhmadi, @IranRiggedElect, and @Change_For_Iran. He researched further and found that On June 14 the Jerusalem Post already had an article on the new twitter. He concludes that the new Twitter sites are propaganda operations.
One wonders why the youth of the world, who do not protest stolen elections elsewhere, are so obsessed with Iran.Right-wing Israeli interests are engaged in an all out Twitter attack with hopes of... more
New York Times reporter Steven Kinzer in his book All Shah’s Men, reveals how the CIA destabilized and overthrew the democratically elected government of Dr. Mosaddeq. How it was done? Here is the transcript of the first few minutes of Kinzer’s interview.
1. STEVEN KINZER: The story of how the C.I.A. overthrew the government of Iran in 1953 is really an object lesson in how easy it is for a rich and powerful country to throw a poor and weak country into chaos.
2. The C.I.A. sent one of its most adept operatives, Kermit Roosevelt, the grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt, to Iran with the mission of organizing the overthrow of the government.
3. One reason I was so interested in writing this book is that I have always asked myself, how do you go about overthrowing a government? What do you do? Suppose that you are sent to a country with that mission. What do you do on the first day? How do you start and then what do you do? Well, now I know.
4. Kermit Roosevelt set about trying to create chaos in Iran. He was able to do that very quickly by a series of means.
5. The first thing he did was, he started bribing members of parliament and leaders of small political parties that were a part of Mosaddeq’s political coalition. Pretty soon the public started to see the Mosaddeq’s coalition splitting apart and people denouncing him on the floor of parliament.
6. The next thing Roosevelt did was start bribing newspaper editors, owners and columnists and reporters. Within a couple of weeks, he had 80% of the newspapers in Tehran on his payroll and they were grinding out every kind of lie attacking Mosaddeq.
7. The next thing Roosevelt did was start bribing religious leaders. Soon, at Friday prayers, the Mullahs were denouncing Mosaddeq as an atheist enemy of Islam.
8. Roosevelt also bribed members of police units and low-ranking military officers to be ready with their units on the crucial day.
9. In what I think was really his master stroke, he hired the leaders of a bunch of street gangs in Tehran, and he used them to help create the impression that the rule of law had totally disintegrated in Iran. He actually at one point hired a gang to run through the streets of Tehran, beating up any pedestrian they found, breaking shop windows, firing their guns into mosques, and yelling—“We love Mosaddeq and communism.” This would naturally turn any decent citizen against him.
10. He didn’t stop there. He hired a second mob to attack the first mob, to give people the impression that there was no police presence and order had completely disintegrated. So, within just a few weeks, this one agent operating with a large sum of cash and a network of contacts and various elements of society, had taken what was a fairly stable country and thrown it into complete upheaval.
As you see the parliament was no longer a legitimate parliament. Everyone had become a fifth column. While Roosevelt had remained in the shadow, Mosaddeq knew that the integrity of the parliament and the press had been undermined. How could people who supported him start all of a sudden attacking him? Would an election in such time been legitimate? Was the parliament legitimate? Mosaddeq was a patiort and he did the right thing.
Therefore comparing Dr. Mosaddeq with Hussni Mubarak and Indira Gandhi betrays the lack of knowledge of the subject about which Dr. Klinghoffer opines.
