Speaking hypothetically, what might we expect from a de facto "President of the Muslim World" in the first few days of his presidency?
After taking office, his first television interview would undoubtedly be granted to an Arabic-language television news network such as Al Arabiya. He would take the opportunity to criticize America (pointing out her mistakes and imperfections) and condemn her dictatorial tendencies. Distancing himself from the West, he would speak proudly of his Muslim heritage and of his life in Muslim countries.
Being eminently concerned with the interests of the Muslim world, the newly-elected leader would assert that "the United States has a stake in the well-being of the Muslim world." He would also make it his job to communicate to the American people that the "Muslim world is filled with extraordinary people" and would insist that Americans should use a "language of respect" when communicating with Muslims. He would be quick to remind the rest of the world that "America is a country of Muslims, Jews, Christians, non-believers" (in that order).
During his premiere television interview, the president might also take the opportunity to build suspense in the run up to his much anticipated address to the Muslim world from a Muslim capital...
If Barack Hussein Obama isn't already receiving a handsome salary for his work as President of the Muslim World, he should be getting a check soon. He's doing a great job.
Bomber Renews Fears Over Closing Gitmo
Abdallah Ali al-Ajmi was transferred back to his home country of Kuwait after his release from Guantanamo in 2005. Last April he blew himself up in a homicide attack that killed 12 people in Mosul, Iraq. A video of the former Gitmo detainee's martyrdom tape, is a reminder of the concerns that terror suspects — who have been held but released from Guantanamo Bay — are increasingly returning to the fight against the United States and its allies.
White House Will Create Panic to Push Stimulus
Jim DeMint, speaking Jan. 27 at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., explained the Obama administration will “create crisis and widespread panic” just like its predecessor in order to get Congress to act expeditiously. “I’ve been around long enough to know whenever someone tells me I have to make a decision right now, my response is no,” DeMint said.
Boehner to GOP: Vote against stimulus
For the first time, it seems, congressional Republicans, shut out of power and seemingly cowed by the harsh verdict of voters and wild popularity of the new president, are finding their voice, rallying in large numbers against the centerpiece of Obama’s agenda.
Republicans Object to Stimulus Dollars for ACORN
Republican lawmakers are raising concerns that ACORN, the low-income advocacy group under investigation for voter registration fraud, could be eligible for billions in aid from the economic stimulus proposal working its way through the House.
Fifty-nine percent (59%) of U.S. voters worry that Congress and President Obama will increase government spending too much in the next year or two. Nearly half of U.S. voters (49%) say Obama is politically more liberal than they are. Forty-five percent of voters, however, now Strongly Approve of the way that Obama is performing his role as president in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Approval Index. Just 16% Strongly Disapprove. Just over half of GOP voters think their personal taxes will rise during Obama’s presidency, compared to 12% of Democrats. Twenty-eight percent of Democratic voters and six percent of Republicans say their taxes will go down.
Space Weapons Ban
Obama wants to eliminate weapons from space. Come on here. Is there anyone out there who seriously thinks that weapons can be eliminated from space? This can't be a serious proposal. As space technology continues, some country, somewhere, is going to surreptitiously move weaponry into orbit around the earth. Only when the weapons are in place will we be told of their existence That little news bulletin will come complete with a set of demands and promises of a little spaced-based ugliness if those demands aren't met.
Another One of Obama's Useful Republican Idiots
Rep. Phil Gingrey: "...It’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party. You know you’re just on these talk shows and you’re living well..." You can contact Rep. Gingrey at firstname.lastname@example.org. Update.
