    Glad the President is back home. Good trip for him and us! Market’s up for who knows how long, the stimulus money is kicking in…

    Now to that North Korean launching pad thingy….

    Charles Blow on the extreme far right chattering class:

    “Lately I’ve been consuming as much conservative media as possible (interspersed with shots of Pepto-Bismol) to get a better sense of the mind and mood of the right. My read: They’re apocalyptic. They feel isolated, angry, betrayed and besieged. And some of their “leaders” seem to be trying to mold them into militias.”

    Interesting thought from the piece:

    “As the comedian Bill Maher pointed out, strong language can poison weak minds”

  4. Steve he’s not back home, he’s still in Europe, that msg was recorded on Air Force One.

  5. Good morning everyone, happy Saturday! Sun is out but it’s still cold – lake effect – still under 50.

    Yeah Steve, he’s not headed home until the 7th.

    Click on the “Politico 44 President’s Calendar” at the top of the page.

  7. he’s heading to the Czech Republic, then to Turkey, I do believe in Turkey he’s going to do a broadcast to the Islamic Nations.

    Well, sorry about that. You know me! A fountain of information!

    The far right- I cringe when i hear some of the stuff they are doing. There’s a local guy here who is practically calling for an overthrow of the govt.

  9. Steve maybe he should move to Michelle Bachman’s district!

  10. I find it extremely interesting and promising that the prez has gotten both France and Germany to commit troops to Afghanistan, granted not large commitments but even so not something Bush was able to do.

    She’s mentioned in the cited article. Of course, I agree with her that more of us should be armed (here we go again, Brian), although I think people like me should be the ones holding the weapons, not people like her.

  12. yeah, more guns, just what we need!

    Perhaps Berlusconi should give the Queen an iPod with Frank Sinatra, Vic Damone and Dean Martin pre-loaded.

  17. When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie…..

  18. dnd

    Almost forgot:

    All those European leaders all have a crush on Obama. And the Queen seems to be inordinately fond of Michelle 😉

  19. What’s shakin’?

    Seem there is no shortage of horrific news on this side of the pond. Sorry to hear about the three Officers in PA, the missing 8 year-old in CA, and the ice shelf cracking in Antarctic.

    oy vey!

  20. dnd

    I find it really strange that on this anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination, a man who preached non-violent protest and a truly transformational figure, that anti-NATO protesters believe that violent riots are the way to get their point across. I just don’t get it…

    dnd remember this favorite movie quote “what are you rebelling against? Whada you got?”

  22. horsedooty

    cramer was on Morning Load and said the same thing. Said the recession was still in full force but the depression is over.
