How do the Vets here feel about this?

Can't put it into words. I knew a guy that agot a Purple Heart for being in the disco on Berlin that was bombed by Gadaffi, and I another guy who's father got a one for having been hit by grenade shrapnel from a seperatists in Hawaii in the 1930s. I guess there would be too many people in the Pentagon who would be embarassed by having to admit the truth.

Michelle Obama joins Twitter as 2012 election nears

I hope all here are doing their part by being an avid follower.

Frau Schneeschaufel

Jim R., The Altgeld Gardens, Obama's signature achievement in Chicago deserves a place in that compare and contrast video.

Sara

chubby: Yes, he spent 2 1/2 years in France. He was also nearly killed there in an automobile accident that severely injured him and killed the wife of the Mission President, who Mitt was working for at the time. The other driver was at fault.

Also, his father was born and raised in Mexico and he and Mitt's American born grandparents were all fluent in Spanish. I think his Dad had to learn English when he came here as a child.

BTW, the Mormon church has some very sophisticated language labs to prepare Missionaries for various foreign Missions. From what I've been told by a few who went thru it, the training is intense and condensed. I recall stories of our back door neighbor telling how he had to learn Portuguese for his Mission. He used to laugh at how he'd taken Latin in school as preparation for pre-med and he was told that they didn't have any openings for Missionaries at the Vatican ... at that time.

It [His Mission] also represented a crucible, after having been only a half-hearted Mormon growing up: "On a mission, your faith in Jesus Christ either evaporates or it becomes much deeper. For me it became much deeper."[25]Wiki

How sad for Chicago and *tragic* for the rest of the state that must feed the beast.

I must say that much in that article could have been written about New York City--I'm particularly familiar with the building inspection racket. All that plus a mayor who worries about transfats and salt in restaurants.

Sara

Sara, you can think what you want about Bain,

I have no thoughts on Bain, my personal opinion is about Romney. And I don't even know if whatever rumors exist they are about Bain and Company, or the separate entity that Romney was put in charge of, Bain Capital Private Equity. There are hundreds of employees, so there may or may not be some with less than honorable actions. Just don't know.

Chubby

Sara

thanks for filling in the blanks. I have been finding your posts about Romney very interesting and helpful.

What explains the support for Bloomberg, Jimmy, he thinks after a dozen plots, terrorism isn't a major issue but transfats
are,

Ranger: I certainly think the ambused soldiers at Ft. Hood deserve the Purple Heart more than John "Coward" Kerry deserved his for shooting himself in the ass, with a grain of rice, wasn't it?

Oy! ::ambushed::

"How do the Vets here feel about this?"

My first thought is how in the hell did the decision get to the president's desk? That's on a par with Jimmy Carter writing the schedule for use of the White House tennis courts.

If I'd been in the chain of command I'd have recommended approval as a matter of course. Crazy...

jimmyk

narciso, dare I say it's a bit like Romney--the alternative is much, much worse. (I should add that I would much rather have Romney as mayor of NYC than Bloomberg.)

Going back to an earlier thread;

Danube of Thought

On the Purple Heart thing, Sara, having read the link I am now uncertain about Obama's involvement in any of it. The source does not strike me as credible in the absence of links or citations to supporting evidence.

narciso

Well didn't he call it 'workplace violence' it really becomes too good to check;

Dave B

If Romney wins in SC after the barrage against him by his opponents and the MSM what is Newt's Super Pac going to come up with next? Perhaps Paul Ryan throwing Grandma over the cliff in her wheelchair and Mitt pissing on the old lady's corpse? Do we even know if these people are Republicans?

Sara

Another JOMer made famous on Instapundit.

I hear an echo.

SEEN ON FACEBOOK, SOME ADVICE FOR ROMNEY:

If I were Romney, I’d highlight one company per week that government regulations have either forced overseas or out of business.

I’d start with Gibson Guitars.

I’d be downright belligerent about the administration working hard to kill jobs.

Second, the Keystone Pipeline project.

We could do one a week and never run out of examples. Force the administration to defend their actions.

Good going Daddy. And Insty says it is a "good idea."

Sara

Who said it was going to get ugly. This is pretty darn ugly.

Leftist Radio Host Mike Malloy: Romney and Sons All on 'Hardcore LSD'


Danube of Thought

"didn't he call it 'workplace violence' "

Whether he did or not, that would not prevent the Army from awarding Purple Hearts. There's no form with boxes where if you check "workplace violence" you can skip the rest of the questions and check "no award."

Danube of Thought

We've been reading in bed with the TV off. A moment ago I turned it on and, since it was set at FNC, we were immediately greeted with Newt's full face, bloviating on and on (I suppose, given the time, it must have been Hannity).

I was instantly repulsed by the sight and the sound, and turned it off. I am genuinely sick of this mountebank, and would like to see him become such an object of contempt and ridicule that he can no longer inflict himself on us for his self-aggrandizing purposes, chief among which seems to be the sale of books and DVD's.

While they're doing that urinating I wouldn't mind if our Troops pissed on this guy also:

"A former Oakland County Democratic Party operative was sentenced to a year of probation and ordered to pay more than $2,500 in fines and court costs for his role in creating fake tea party candidates during the 2010 election in an effort to siphon off support for Republican candidates."

daddy

Ringside with Titan and Dione

Sara

Matt: I think you may be correct. Still, what is hardcore LDS? They go to church each Sunday for hours, they say their prayers each day, they believe in strong families, they are industrious, honest, and read the Bible? They are the best record keepers in the world and have such secure storage, the government uses it too, a granite mountain. They make their genealogy records and libraries open to any who wish to use them at no cost, member and nonmembers alike? They are thrifty, give generously, and believe that everyone should strive to educate themselves? Or maybe it is that the LDS church is a strong supporter of Israel. And having been the victims of some shameful persecutions, they are strong believers in the Constitution and less government intervention in our private lives, families, and communities. And they are patriotic, believe in serving their country and in the value of volunteering.

They aren't running around all tatted up, doing drugs, or living in tents in public parks creating filth and disease. To hear some talk, however, you would think that Mormons practice dark arts and like to cut out the hearts of children and roast them on the BBQ. They believe in the sanctity of life, which is why it is so ludicrous to think that Romney flip flopped on abortion. Mormons believe that God gave man free will and that we will have to answer for our own choices, not some original sin, so Romney and many Mormons do believe in free choice. To Romney's credit, when the rubber hit the road and he actually had to exercise his own free choice concerning abortion when governor, he realized there was no way he would or could chose for anything but life.

What exactly is hardcore?

When my kids were in high school, one playing football and one in cheerleading and I was working full time, trying to take 2 extension courses at the local college, do my turns at car pooling and still be a responsible parent preparing meals and helping with homework as a sea duty widow (like a golf widow only your husband doesn't come home for 9 mo. or more at a time, I was exhausted and very frazzled. When the Bishop told me that I was being called to two different teaching positions, both of which required preparation time on my part, I fell apart and burst into tears. The Bishop let me get it out of my system and then he quietly said, "Take a deep breath, relax, and concentrate on getting Christ back into the center of your life." Then he hugged me and said we would talk in a month. The next day, as I drove up the street coming home from work, I saw adult men busy in my yard, cleaning the pool, cutting the grass, trimming the hedges, and presenting me as I parked my car with a schedule of surrogate fathers to do the car pooling for games and practices and for father-son and father-daughter events. For me, it was such a relief and Godsend, it is beyond description. Would that be called "hardcore?"

If it is, I'm having a hard time seeing the downside.

JM Hanes

You know what amuses me most about this?

Conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks has an admirer in the White House, according to a new book.

In “The Obamas,” New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor reports that after the Democrats’ midterm election defeat in 2010, President Obama personally contacted White House outsiders to get a candid take on what he may be missing cloistered in the bubble of the Oval Office.

Among those the president reached out to, she said, were former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, President Clinton confidante Vernon Jordan, former Reagan chief of staff Ken Duberstein and David Gergen, a CNN analyst and adviser to several presidents.

He also reached out to Brooks, who Kantor wrote is “the president’s favorite pundit.”

It's Obama's idea of reaching outside his cloistered bubble -- to a veritable insider's crew of insiders. "So, what am I missing here, guys?" "Mr. Prez, you were just shellacked."

JM Hanes

North Carolina's governor, at the site of a recent tornado, describes the damage:

It's just devastation.... When you see all the insulation and all the appliances and the rooftops all over the fields and in the trees, I mean, it's a typical tornado response look.
When you can no longer comunicate without sounding like a bureaucrat, it's time. for. you. to. go.

daddy

Well JMH,

I suppose it could be worse. Your Governor might have been holding an Office Betting Pool like Lisa Murkowski's staff did, on how much devastation there would actually be.

Cecil Turner

One of the defining characteristics of this campaign season is that the Dems have plenty of money and no record to run on. The logical expectation is that it'll go ugly early and stay there. I also expect their biggest dossier is on Mitt, because he's been "inevitable" since day one.

I don't like Romney, obviously, and don't see Bain Capital as much of a recommendation . . . but neither does it provide much fodder for an attack ad. But, unfortunately for Romney, it does play in to the silver spoon out-of-touch meme; and that is likely to be a major part of the oppo caricature. This ad seems relatively mild, and still manages to neutralize Bain as a positive. I continue to think Romney is a relatively poor candidate, and likely to be disappointing if he does manage to get elected.

The Marines should simply claim they are performance artists. I am sure they would then be embraced like Andres Serrano.

maybe they could get a grant.

Cecil Turner

It's a regrettable failure of discipline and bad PR. The resultant bad press (theirs and ours, unfortunately) will make the job harder. Other than that, I can't get real excited about it.

"Seventy years later, the carefully laid plans to change America from a sovereign, constitutional republic with a free enterprise economic base to just of many nations in an international socialist (collectivist) system (New World Order) are apparent."

Agenda 21 is alive and well.

PD

So Obama's going to ask Congress for authority to merge Trade and Commerce, in the name of efficiency and leaner government.

That means people will lose their jobs. I guess that means Obama likes firing people.

I think it actually works both ways - like Obamacare - just a little less toxic to ROmney.

Porchlight

Here's Obama with Gen. Odierno on that trip to Iraq:

This isn't the exact shot I was thinking of, but it somewhat conveys the boredom/lack of comprehension/discomfort.

Also, wasn't there an email going around purporting to be from one of the troops, describing how standoffish Obama was when the cameras weren't on?

It's only a little thing, but really it's a big thing.

Clarice

**Talking about**Need coffee..lots of coffee.

Melinda Romanoff

It depends on WHICH dealerships they recommended. Blanket, or donation history?

Captain Hate

Why must the MFM drum up hatred of America's military? Let the Marine's superior officer discipline them or not. Why is this national news?

Exactly; if the MFM was so concerned about this they would've brought it to the attention of the commanding officers as an internal matter and let the cards fall where they might. By reporting it for the world to see they're undermining the nation's image and acting like some bratty kid that does something just because he can with no regard for the consequences.

NK

Porchlight--"but really it's a big thing". It is important to know that the POTUS is NOT a people person, not empathetic, not interested in his countrymen's lives. That's true enough. And if the POTUS is a faux populist, more important still. And yes it is very important for Indy voters to know that 'Bam is a self-absorbed narcissist who doesn't understand or care about them. But to me the REALLY big thing about 'Bam is that everything he DOES is to feed his narcissism and that means everything he does pushes either his Leftist Agenda or personal self-agrandizement. He simply has NO way to separate the national interest from himself. And that is why he has done terrible things to this country and its institutions. He must go.

I cannot get that youtube to load past the one minute mark and Iserbyt has good primary sources but she tends to be very dogmatic in what she writes. I think the awfulness of what she has seen and read has affected her in the same way it seems to have affected Glenn Beck.

The author has done what would have happened to me if I "had written a book" when first urged because I had great stories others needed to hear. You do not know how things relate so you can fall into the trap of urging remedies that are the euphemistically named successors to the very ideas you are complaining about.

I will come back to the video later to make sure there's nothing in it I am not familiar with and haven't considered. I always appreciate the links. I thought his video from yesterday talking about ideological subversion really rang true with what I have seen and read. I mean to watch Part 2 at some point.

Porchlight

Totally agree, NK. Even our worst Presidents could separate themselves from the job somewhat. We have always taken for granted that Presidents cared about the country, even if they were incompetent or had terrible personal failings. We can't assume that about this guy.

Ranger

It depends on WHICH dealerships they recommended. Blanket, or donation history?

Yes, exactly. There was general agreement throughout the industry that there were too many dealerships. The real question was which ones got cut and which ones didn't. Bain probabably did advise cutting dealerships, but it was ObamaCo in DC that picked the winners and the losers.

Melinda Romanoff

And 93% of those were opposing donors, as I recall.

Today at the WH: Pres Obama will ask Congress to give him authority to reorganize the Government incl merger of 6 trade & commerce agencies.

I am all for doing this, but not under the Obama regime.

NK

Thanks Porch. I'll give you an example. Nixon was a paranoid personality-- that's clear enough. But when the time came- he resigned in the national interest. The history is not certain, but Nixon probably could have twisted enough Repub Senator arms to not convict him at trial. That would have kept him in office, but would have been disasterous for the nation and his party. Nixon resigned. Yes he was pardoned-- but Nixon resigned first for the national and party interest. Narcissists like Clinton and 'Bam, won't do that. They'll drag the nation through the muck if they deem it better for themselves. Clinton was lucky to have been POTUS when the demographic and historical stars alligned for a growing US economy. 'Bam has been POTUS in a complicated and challenging time; he has been a disaster.

centralcal,

Whatever that is, it can't be good. He's actually asking Congress for permission? That's a switch.

GMAX

Since we are so often treated by TM to steaming hot helping of the NYT (especially my favorite - Kruggers ) I thought this comment found over at Althouse hilarious:

Now I just made the mistake of reading through the comments (now closed) over at the Brisbane NY Times piece. Holy crap, are Times readers really that dumb?

Reading through the comments felt like being at an Idiot's Anonymous meeting where one person after the other stood up, stated their name and declared, "Hi. I read the New York Times, and I am an idiot."

Not a single person I read grasped the meaning of Brisbane's piece. Just wow!

I added the bold part, while sitting here nodding and smiling.

jimmyk

That means people will lose their jobs. I guess that means Obama likes firing people.

PD, the article I saw had this: "The official said 1,000 to 2,000 jobs would be cut, but the administration would do so through attrition; that is, as people routinely leave their jobs over time."

Which means, of course, that the cost saving is going to be minimal, more or less rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. It will be good theater, though, as the Republicans are put on the spot to go along with Barry's new role as efficiency expert. /eyeroll

NK

JimmyK-- agree about Clinton's narcissism. But Clinton was different than Obama in a very important way. Clinton craved other people loving him; he strived to seduce everyone and make them love him. the ultimate extrovert. Obama is an introvert; he strives to love himself, hence his disinterest in other people's lives. The people don't have to love obama, only obama has to love obama. But you're right, because Clinton craved public adoration, the public interest did matter to him much more than it does to Obama. Only Obama's self-interest matters to Obama. That's why he's been such a disaster.

centCal-- thanks for that "Commerce" link. Of course this is Obama nonsense, rearranging the deck chairs on the USS Leviathan. But for all you 2012 doomsayers, this is an important point. Of course this is nonsense, but the important fact is Axelrod/Plouffe have put this out there because of voter revulsion to the gigantic expansion of federal spending and employment and hatred of the national debt. This is an important admission by axelrod/plouffe that even their own voters don't like the debt and spending-- except for treansfer payment to themselves of course. Watch for more BS like this-- but this is important BS.

For the same reason that Obama doesn't want anything to do with the US military is my

He proposed to boldly submit legislation to cut spending $80 Billion dollars.

Gmax, I saw $20 billion, but maybe I misread. To be fair, it was "non-security discretionary," which makes the base fairly limited. In any case, it's theater. What he plans for entitlement reform is more important.

I was more concerned about his plan to launch the trade war with China on Day 1.

I hope Romney never does anything to disappoint Sara. I don't think she could take it.

He's a man. With flaws. Mormon or not. His being Mormon shouldn't matter one way or the other. There are lots of Mormons who have done bad things. Answering every criticism of him with how Mormons do this, or Mormons do that is not productive and turns me off to Romney and Mormons. I know one Mormon mom who actually wrote a report for her college age son because he was busy doing something else. And thought it was okay that she, and he, cheated, because he'd never need to know whatever the hell the subject of the report was.

But I'm voting for Romney if he is the nominee. With more enthusiasm than I did for McCain. But not much.

The augurs of civility, by which I mean crashing and burning;

Make no mistake: The tea party Republicans have engaged in economic terrorism against the United States--threatening to blow up the economy if they don't get what they want. And like the al-Qaida bombers, what they want is delusional: the dream of restoring some fantasy caliphate. . . . Americans are not supposed to negotiate with terrorists, but that's what Obama has been doing. . . . That the Republican leadership couldn't control a small group of ignoramuses in its ranks has brought disgrace on their party. But oddly, Obama's passivity made it hard for responsible Republicans to control their destructive children. The GOP extremists would ask Obama for his firstborn, and he'd say, 'OK.' So they think, why not ask for his second-born, to which he responds, 'Let's talk.'

NK, on the Fed transcripts, they pretty much confirm what we already knew, which is that they were oblivious to the risks. It's not so much that they didn't know about the vulnerability of the financial system--one could argue that much of the mess was outside their purview--but that they behaved as if they DID have all the knowledge they needed. They didn't know what they didn't know, to paraphrase Rumsfeld. So they pushed ahead like the Titanic (sorry for the second Titanic reference in two posts), raising rates and leaving them up until the crash.
