3,520 days after Americans woke up to witness the largest mass casualty of a terrorist attack in our world history, we woke up to the news that the Administration of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner had killed Osama bin Laden, a mastermind and chief financier of the global terrorist network.

Last night, President Obama informed former President George Bush about the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden.  President Bush released this statement:

Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, […]

Since Barack Obama was elected president, the opportunity to seize national security credibility from Republicans for the long term has been there for the taking, and awaiting only a few things. ?Capture or death of Osama Bin Laden is the big prize, of course. ?But the inevitable attempted terrorist attack on Barack Obama’s watch, and the Republican response to it, offers the same opportunity.

The Christmas Day attack has given Barack the best of all worlds. ?Thank God, the attack failed, hilariously. ?Just as hilarious has been the utterly predictable Republican attack in response, whose main effect is to […]

Dear GOP Narrative Operatives,

Here’s a clue. Your latest attempts to build on the failed narrative from the last campaign that Obama is soft on terrorism is fraught with danger. I know it is tempting and nearly a tourette’s like tic with you guys, but you must know that you are entering a world of pain with this one. A world of pain.

Let’s imagine for a minute that you even have ground to stand on. We’ll act as if your current criticism for delays in White House comment on the Detroit crotch bomber aren’t met by a […]

I’m going to echo Eric’s thoughts on the Christmas Day testicle roast that now has America again looking at airport security, with Republicans already using the issue to attack our country’s president.

Back in the day before such calm leadership graced the White House this would be an opportunity to exploit the fears of the American people….Mouth breathing Obama bashing Palin sycophants only understand monosyllabic grunts that talk about Muslims, terr-rists, and war.? They don?t even recognize competent leadership when they see it.

I’m actually quite happy that Republicans came out the gate bashing Obama, even interrupting their Christmas […]

Earlier I posted about how far we’ve come in executive leadership by noting an article about a con man who duped the Bush Administration into thinking he could decode Al Jazeera broadcasts that contained messages for terrorists.

The recent failed attempt to down a passenger jet over Detroit again reminds me of how far we’ve come.? A diarist at DailyKos does a good job of putting together thoughts on something that occurred to me while watching the never-ending coverage of a rich Nigerian son who burned off his nut sack in an attempt to kill over 200 people […]

Remembering How Far We’ve Come

On December 21, 2009 By

Amid all the HCR disappointment, Copenhagen hand wringing, and teabag nonsense, let’s remember just how far we’ve come. While the media and the right want to make a big deal of some White House attention seeking party crashers, today we note a report that a known liar and thief duped the Bush Administration into believing he could decode broadcasts from Al Jazeera into future actions of terrorists.

(Note: When your own attorney brands you a “habitual liar engaged in fraud”, that’s a bad thing)

You may remember some hinting among the right about terrorists using secret codes in […]

Not part of the movement? Riiiight!

In the rear window of the 1993 blue Ford Taurus that he was driving was a red rose, a symbol often used by abortion opponents. On the rear of his car was a Christian fish symbol with the word “Jesus” inside… Dinwiddie said she met Roeder while picketing outside the Kansas City Planned Parenthood clinic in 1996. Roeder walked into the clinic and asked to see the doctor, Robert Crist, she said. “Robert Crist came out and he stared at him for approximately 45 seconds,” she said. “Then he (Roeder) said, ‘I’ve seen […]

Americans to Dick Cheney: STFU

On April 13, 2009 By

Seventy-two percent of those questioned in the poll, which was released Monday, disagree with Cheney’s view that some of Obama’s actions have put the country at greater risk, with 26 percent agreeing with the former vice president.

Wow. I shoulda taken the under! Under a week into the new Presidency of Barack Obama and the right has clearly lost it’s ever-loving mind. I mean they are in full on meltdown “WTF just happened Tuesday” mode! It would be joyous if it weren’t so disturbing at the same time. Glenn Beck making an ass out of himself over the second swearing in with no Bible (despite facts). Rush Limbaugh wanting Obama (and America) to fail. Tom Blumer recycling yet again his old 6 degrees of Barack Hussein Obambi Obama terrorism post.

I surely hope someone can look into the deeper connections between John Sidney McCain and Mustafa Abu Naba’a.

What a name. Mustafa Abu Naba’a. Sounds Muslim or something. Maybe even…


John McCain’s campaign announced Thursday night that it’s returning about $50,000 in contributions believed to be brought in by a foreign citizen.

The actions late Thursday followed a move earlier in the day by the campaign that it would be looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations brought in by Florida businessman Harry Sargeant, after reports that his business partner – Mustafa Abu Naba’a, […]
