Political nuggets, fool's gold

David Martin, National Security Correspondent: "If Iran doesn't blink, Israel will strike. ... Go after its nuclear facilities, if Iran doesn't blink. ... [The U.S. will] have no choice but to support Israel. And depending on what the evidence is at that time they might even want to take part in that raid -- it depends on what kind of intelligence they have."

Chris Matthews, just after having Iowa Governor Terry Branstad on his TV show, “You ask the guy what time it is and he gives you five reasons why he hates Obama.”

His then-wife raged at Newt for his sanctimony in giving high-minded speeches about family values—how could he stand up and say such things and do what he was doing? His retort, she said: “People need to hear what I have to say … It doesn’t matter what I live.”

"On behalf of all gays and lesbians living in Minnesota, I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for our community's successful efforts to threaten your traditional marriage," reads the letter from John Medeiros. "We apologize that our selfish requests to marry those we love has cheapened and degraded traditional marriage so much that we caused you to stray from your own holy union for something more cheap and tawdry." – sent to GOP Sen. Amy Koch who resigned after admitting having an affair with one of her staffers.

Tweeting = stupid. That is all.

Obama clearly has not learned from history about appeasement. His (and Bush's) weak response to Iran has put Israel in a position of having to do something which will drag us in whether we want to be or not. The bill in Congress which would force sanctions on Iran's central bank would shut them down and make a very strong point. So would a European embargo of Iranian products. All a bit short of a shooting war. But one has to act and not dither.

Chris should be surprised: 5 is way too few. There are hundreds of reasons to oppose Obama.

Can't stand pols that say "do as I say but not as I do." Pretty hypocritical.

Don't know about tweeting. Never did it, never will. lol
