More and more it’s becoming apparent that if this president is to succeed he has to maintain a constant war footing where the repugs are concerned. So be it, let the games begin!

I’m ready! Bring it on!
He’s winning me back nanny! LOL
Where you been all day?
Taking it easy; I’ve had a headache.
My nephew just another internship with this group:
Giannoulias, Kirk to fight each other for Obama’s old Senate seat

A large portion of the GOP is just plain ignorant.
Hows your headache nanny? Better I hope.
Reuters Retracts ‘Taxes to Hit Middle Class’ Article
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day has provided “useful, actionable” intelligence to U.S. authorities after the FBI flew his relatives to the United States to urge him to cooperate, U.S. officials said on Tuesday.
In other news, Sen. Susan Collins in the GOP weekly address blasted President Obama and the FBI for making us unsafe from underwear bombers:
Sounds like Sen. Collins owes an apology to the president and the FBI.
Good Salon piece on this:
And Susan Collins just proves the point, there is no such thing as a “good repug”.

Earlier tonight I riffed on a since-retracted Reuters story about President Obama’s tax plans. I’m glad the story wasn’t true because it seemed stunning that, as the story claimed, this White House would back the middle class tax hikes described. But of course I’m not glad that I believed the story and quoted it. Compared to other wire services, Reuters has a reputation for a bit of hyperbole in its prose, but I’ve never had reason to question its factual integrity. Lesson learned. I apologize for this. My post referring to this article has now been removed.

Maybe he should ask himself why he ran with the story in the first place. I hate when so called members of the press blame others for their shabby work.
“Compared to other wire services, Reuters has a reputation for a bit of hyperbole in its prose, but I’ve never had reason to question its factual integrity.”
More “Attacking the Messenger…”
Well, at least he did a mea culpa. Many others have not.
My headache is better today, Brian. Not completely gone but tolerable for sure. This is the first migraine I’ve had in a few years at least and ,hopefully, my last. Thanks for asking. 🙂
Does anyone really think Collins will apologize? Most repugs are allergic to apologies, except when they’re demanding that others give them.
Too little, too late in my book nanny. Just another example (albeit a very minor one) of an agenda driven press, right up there with “fair and balanced”, anything but.
Things just aren’t going to change – unless it’s a repug who says one thing and then completely contradicts him/herself – example: McCain on DADT! The repugs just can’t handle a POTUS who isn’t white and the only way they can is to say “no” to everything.
RE: McCain – he’s old, needs to be replaced, but feel quite certain that JD Hayworth would be 110% worse.

Nancy Pelosi’s new health care plan
With the broader health care bill still perilously close to collapse, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to take a shot at the health insurance industry next week by scheduling a vote on a smaller bill to revoke its half-century-old exemption from antitrust laws.

Yo bev, where are those vacation pics?
Powell backs Mullen, Gates on DADT
“In the almost seventeen years since the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” legislation was passed, attitudes and circumstances have changed. The principal issue has always been the effectiveness of the Armed Forces and order and discipline in the ranks. I strongly believe that this is a judgment to be made by the current military leadership and the Commander in Chief. It is also a judgment Congress must make. For the past two years, I have expressed the view that it was time for the law to be reviewed by Congress. I fully support the new approach presented to the Senate Armed Services Committee this week by Secretary of Defense Gates and Admiral Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. I will be closely following future hearings, the views of the Service Chiefs and the implementation work being done by the Department of Defense”
Obviously irony is above his pay grade, LOL
Well, I knew Collins wouldn’t apologize. But, at least, Andrea Mitchell is doing a good job questioning her.
yeah she is doing a good job.
Scott Brown to be sworn in as Massachusetts senator Thursday
I fear peace is a concept never to become a reality…very sad 😦
“The blast also killed three girls at a nearby school and a Pakistani paramilitary soldier traveling with the Americans. Two more U.S. soldiers were wounded, along with about 100 other people, mostly students at the school. Several were left trapped, bloodied and screaming in the rubble.”
Nanny glad to hear your headache is easing.
Thanks, Burrito. I share your fear that peace is an illusion that we (some of us) keep chasing after but will never catch up with. Very sad indeed….
