    The only poll that BO is still leading in is “likeability.”This could be another historic election: The first time America has elected Ms. Congeniality to the Presidency?(snip)Big Guy finally fessed up to having a hand in the defeat: “I think it’s fair to say I was just too polite,"the president said when asked about his first debate performance during an interview on the Tom Joyner radio show."The good news is, is that’s just the first one." …and I’ve been getting a little coaching (snip)that pesky allegation of a cover up of the facts surrounding the murder of our Ambassador and...
  • Anti-Nuclear Press Puts Japanese Lives at Risk ("impossible for them to sustain a fission reaction")

    Let us be clear. Compared to the real disaster at hand, the hypothetical threat from the nuclear stations is zero. The reactors in question were all shut down four days ago. The control rods have been inserted, and the cores have been salted with boron. It is physically impossible for them to sustain a fission reaction of any kind at this point, let alone cause another Chernobyl. Only the fission-byproduct decay heat remains, and it is fading fast as the short half-life material (which accounts for most of the radioactivity) performs its decay reactions and ceases to exist. At this...

    The economy’s rebounding, his approval ratings are ticking up, and the GOP field is a mess. Mark McKinnon and Myra Adams on the president’s odds of a return ticket to the White House. President Obama’s poll ratings are climbing. And the online prediction market Intrade has Obama at a 58.9 percent chance of winning a second term. Though November 2012 is light years away in political time, as Team Obama regroups in Chicago, they should be optimistic about their reelection prospects. Here are 12 reasons why: 1. Power of Incumbency In the last 56 U.S. presidential elections, 31 have involved...

    ON THE ATTACK: Gibbs slammed Gallup's daily tracking poll that showed Obama's approval at the lowest point at this stage of any presidency since Truman's. "I'm sure a six-year old with a crayon" could do the same thing, he said of Gallup, labeling it "the EKG that is the Gallup trend" and calling it "meaningless." And that's the news. (10:04 a.m.)

    The chief of staff of the Iranian army, General Atallah Salhi, said on Friday that Tehran has detected signs that the "Zionist regime" is falling apart. "Over the last few months we saw an offensive by the enemy against the Lebanese people and Hizbullah and we then saw signs that the Zionist regime is collapsing, and now we saw signs that the American leadership is collapsing," he said, warning that Iran can defeat Israel. Salahi spoke during a parade in Tehran to mark "The Holy Defense Week" which marks the start of the Iran-Iraq war. He addressed Israel and the...

    The Bush Era is over. The sooner politicians in both parties realize that, the better for them -- and the country. Recent months, and especially the past two weeks, have brought home to a steadily growing majority of Americans the truth that President Bush's government doesn't work. His policies are failing, his approach to leadership is detached and self-indulgent, his way of politics has produced a divided, angry and dysfunctional public square. We dare not go on like this.

    THERE'S NOTHING like Lloyd Grove in the Washington Post to get your heart started gossipwise these mornings. Just as the New York Post was printing a story on the emergence of three movies using press agents as their chief protagonists, Lloyd writes about how much Iraq's Information Minister Mohammed Saeed Sahhaf is now missed. The minister was the biggest press agent, p.r. machine, spinmeister of the 21st century. While our soldiers and Marines beat the heck out of Saddam's legions, the minister would announce that we were dying like flies, being beaten back and insist that Saddam was winning the...

    Failure and Denial in the Arab World by Ralph R. Reiland (April 13, 2003) Summary: The lack of freedom in the Arab world has delivered a profound lack of human development. It's hard to come off as more bizarre than Madonna (she works at it) but that's how Mohammed Saeed Sahaf, Iraq's information minister, looks on TV as I'm writing this. With U.S. jets controlling the air over his head and American soldiers just 100 yards or so from where he's standing for his outdoor news conference in Baghdad, Sahaf has an announcement. "There are no American troops in Baghdad,"...

    "There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!" "My feelings - as usual - we will slaughter them all" "Our initial assessment is that they will all die" "I blame Al-Jazeera - they are marketing for the Americans!" "God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis." "We have destroyed 2 tanks, fighter planes, 2 helicopters and their shovels - We have driven them back." "They're coming to surrender or be burned in their tanks." "No I am not scared and neither should you be!" "We have them surrounded in their tanks" "The American press is all...

    National Review Magazine and WABC Radio New York 770 ^ | April 7, 2003 SGT | Katherine Jean Lopez-Executive Editor National Review Online
    On the Batchelor and Alexander Radio Program on 77-WABC New York over the weekend, (before the final assualt on Baghdad begun) a guest with intelligence connections said the Ministry of Information Broadcasts are being conducted in a basement under the Baghdad Palestine hotel.I repeat this only because this is not the first time I have heard this.And it makes perfect sense.One wonders if Hanz Bliz and the United Nations Weapon Inspectors checked the Palestine Hotel.
