So what is the problem? Stalin often sent his officials to the Gulag only to bring them back when he wanted to use them.
There was a great bit on the Military Channel about Soviet aircraft designers being thrown into Gulags but brought back to design new aircraft. It kept them on their toes.

Obama’s presidential campaign last spring after calling Hillary Clinton “a monster,” is back out from under the bus.

I suspect they're all now going to start crawling out from under the bus and be "reintroduced" to us through the Obamanation camp. Wright, Ayers, and all the rest.

Exclusive: Bill Ayers Talks About Election Night in Grant Park
[Obama win brings commie Ayers to tears!]

From NBC Chicago, Jan 21, 2009:

Bill Ayers was "overflowing with happiness, relief, love" when he and his wife went to Grant Park with tens of thousands of Chicagoans to celebrate the election of President Barack Obama.

Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, spoke exclusively with NBC Chicago's Dick Johnson about why they joined the Election Night celebration in the park, where 40 years before they helped stage the Days of Rage riots.

The couple said they got last-minute tickets from a friend to be in Grant Park that night.

"I couldn't stop crying a couple of times. I found the exact spot where I was beaten 40 years ago," Ayers said. "But I've never been in a crowd that large that wasn't edged with either anger or drunkenness or gluttony, and it was really an extraordinary feeling."

Obama’s hypocrisy is consistent.

This is in line with his hiring a lobbyist after saying that there’d be no more lobbyists

and

Saying that American business is the solution to the economic crises after only three weeks ago stating that only government can solve the economic crisis.

Of course WE all knew this when he promoted his idea that there’d be new faces in Washington once he was elected, and then he proceeds to rehire a bunch of Clinton-era lackeys.

I've seen a video interview wherein Powers calls for the cessation of aid to Israel along with an investment of "billions" to build up Hamas' military.

She views Israel's actions as one short step short of genocide. She defines them as war crimes.

She wants a US force to occupy a 'DMZ' between Israel and Gaza. This raises an interesting question....

If our foreign policy turns against Israel and bambi does insert a few thousand (or even only two hundred) US troops how do we argue the old "support the troops means support the mission" argument?

We should put a plaque up or something.

No surprise at all...whats interesting is the intentional ‘bitch slap’ Obama just gave Hillary Clinton, his new Secretary of State.

Think about that and what it really says about the relationship between the new President and the new Secretary of State.

Add it to what appears to have been at least subtle support for Caroline Kennedy taking over Hillary’s Senate seat.

In my opinion, President Obama has been going out of his way to ensure Hillary understands she is in fact ‘working under a man’ and that man won’t put up with her BS for a single minute.

A angry, humiliated Sec of State isn’t in the nations best interest.....

I’ll bet that friend was Obama.

Yep, Obama’s election was the ultimate victory of the “New Left”.

That’s untrue.

The words of the oath is a matter of federal law and Obama can’t change it without an act of Congress -— and while that may yet happen, no such law has been passed.

BTW, the origin of this canard is the RuPaul groups, once again making conservatives look stupid.

There is an illuminating article about coverage of the West Bank issue and Samantha Power’s appointment at:

http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/2009/02/ny-times-friedman-calls-for-us-troops.html

It is an article critical of New York Times columnist Tom Friedman who has taken the same position as Samantha Power.

A video of an interview Power gave about using U.S. Troop deployment to maintain Peace and Nation Build in the West Bank follows the article.

It is a must view!

the real obstacle to a two state solution today is the core issue of Palestinian rejection of Israel’s existence. That is why all the foreign assistance in birthing a Palestinian reichlet will never be enough to make it happen.

I made 2 crippled attempts to posting this yesterday. One failed because the source was a blog in Israel.

Went back to the NY Times article and referenced the Blog link in comments. The times article was too involved to convey real content by simply excerpting. In parentheses I stated the article from the NY Times was Propaganda. And it is.

All traces for my post have been removed.
