Eric in Boise

With everything that's going on, I think an appropriate question to ask a Dem - any Dem - on the campaign trail this summer/fall is "Do you support the President and his policies?"

That's it. Ask the question and just wait for the response. Force them to either deny him or, more likely, hem and haw. Then make sure every second of it is recorded.

clarice

Brilliant--Love the hashtags, man.

Eric--which policies..There's a different, inconsistent one, every day now.

Clarice, that's kind of my point. They're pretty much all one disaster after another.

Ask them which policies they support, and why. Then fire up the video editing software.

Obama also used the chaos in Iraq to call on Congress to move on a $5 billion counterterrorism fund he proposed during his foreign policy address at West Point late last month. Obama said the program would " extend our reach without sending U.S. troops to play Whac-A-Mole wherever there ends up being a problem in a particular country."

He can take Anderson pooper-shooter Cooper with him.

They can reenact their FukiNoNo coverage.

So, Shep just said that we are sending security help. (I have no idea if that means Special Forces or policeman whistles, and with this administration, it's a 50-50 proposition.)

Also, Iran has sent 150 of their Revolutionary guard. So if we send Special Forces, we will be fighting on the same side as them.

MM, I was going back to Biloxi next week but am rethinking that decision, too. Too bad cause I was looking forward to seeing my HS friend play with Corey Smith Band. I will note that gas prices here are $3.60ish and I filled up in Biloxi for $3.19 on Sunday.

I don't care one way or the other. Much more of this and I will even support Huckabee.

That P-shop is the closest thing I've ever seen to Rodham doing honest work.

On catch-up 4 threads back I see there is info on Bergdahl's being booted out by the Coast Guard.

I also heard a few days back heard on the news that one of Bergdahl's platoon mates (who said negative stuff about Bergdahl), got an "other than honorable" discharge.

My point is, isn't this stuff proprietary info? If we cannot get the DD-214 from John Kerry, why are we getting some particulars about these Enlisted troops?

If it is legal for this stuff to be released then I have no problem with it, but if it is an illegal leak of info, then I want heads to roll.

If only we lived in country with abundant oil reserves where we could wean our economy off unstable supplies from countries that hate us...

Well Lyle, if you are going to dream, why not dream of a country with oil, gas and coal all in huge supplies. Then you'd be onto something.

NK(withnewsoftware)

BoE-- thanks for these updates. I like that Clint Commercial. Does he produce a .44 Magnum?

NK(withnewsoftware)

OL-- why be a piker. Dream of piplines and freight trains which could move the oil, gas and coal to giant export harbors, which improves balance of trade payments, creates jobs and makes the Dollar worthwhile to further reduce food and energy prices in the USA. Make it a complete fantasy!

Miss Marple,

Romney sounded to me like a guy who does want to run again.

Happy, happy, joy, joy Ignatz

--The president said the escalating crisis confirmed his decision to reorient the administration’s counterterrorism strategy from fighting Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan to focusing on a more diffuse set of terrorist groups, some linked with Al Qaeda, from the Middle East to North Africa.--

Now that I have deliberately set the entire ME ablaze look at the wisdom of me reorienting my water pistol diffusely.

The only question is does this guy have the touch to start a world war before he's done?

Captain Hate

I probably need to read The Inferno to recognize in what circle of Hell this Romney running talk has placed me. I think my happy place just turned to green glass.

Tom Maguire
Are we not allied with the Kurds? Isn't that place the one where everything was sort of normal?

I am pretty sure that in that part of the world 'normal' and 'peaceful' are not synonyms.

However, the Kurds taking Kirkuk is almost surely a good thing, in the short run anyway - their militia, the Pesh Merga, will fight.

Down the road, Kirkuk was a valuable and disputed city which the Kurds won't be in a hurry to give back; if Iraq ever musters a central government, returning Kirkuk will be a sticking point with the Kurds.

daddy

Cavuto is talking about the Climate Gate scam.

I wish that instead of Rupert or Ailes or whomever had invested in the snorefest of the re-done Cosmos series, they had devoted some of that money to do some regular programs examining the science pushed as evidence of Global Warming, with decent scientists explaining the data, and educated the Public on that.

Captain Hate

So Kirkuk to the Iraqis and Kurds is like Kashmir to Indians and Pakis? You should see the look on my son in law's face when Kashmir is brought up. They ain't ever giving that up. Case closed.

This alone should be exhibit A for the prosecution of Momjeans and his SOB AG (an email from the Texas border posted on NRO):

What we saw and heard was maddening, frightening, and pathetic.

The pictures shown in the media of the conditions at the BP [Border Patrol] facilities is accurate. We saw several hundred youths crammed into holding cells, with the spillover out in the loading dock area. While we did see some infants and small children. the vast majority were teenage males. Although the [redacted] facility was terribly overcrowded, sanitation seemed adequate at the time, but BP officers were concerned about the spread of disease.

BP officials and line officers were clearly demoralized by what is going on. BP folks were very candid in saying there was nothing they could do about the kids pouring across the border unless there was a change in policy in DC. BP officials almost begged us (us being state officials and staff) to help get the policy changed. They readily admitted that none of these kids were ever going to be sent back and that our border is wide open for unaccompanied minors. BP also said that the drug cartels are certainly taking advantage of the situation. The BP personnel, including senior officials, we talked to were very demoralized. In contrast, the Texas Department of Public Safety is doing a great job of trying to pick up the slack … in fact I was told by one BP official that if it wasn’t for DPS there wouldn’t be any security on the Texas border. That is sad and pathetic.

And criminal.
