    “Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Will he not first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? Luke 14:31 Chicken-Hawks like Obomber and Carter would be cute when they were saber rattling if they were not so dangerous. They are like the biggest wimp on the playground going up and throwing a limp wristed punch at the playground bully. You just know it isn’t going to end well for the geek. After lecturing Bush for ten years about...

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is a hard man to reach these days—especially if you’re Hillary Clinton. The U.S. Secretary of State tried for twenty-four hours to get Mr. Lavrov on the phone to discuss a draft resolution on Syria, with no luck, according to the transcript of a State Department briefing. Britain, France and the U.S. plan to make their strongest effort yet to push through a draft resolution calling for Syrian President Bashir Assad’s resignation. At least 5,400 people have been killed in the country’s 10-month long crackdown on protestors. Mr. Lavrov, who was in Australia when Mrs....

    Late-night comedian Conan O'Brien opened his monologue last night with this: "The National Hockey League Champion Boston Bruins visited the White House today. President Obama told them he loves hockey as much as any black guy who grew up in Indonesia." True enough, Obama is no fan of hockey. He's been to Wizards games and Nationals games and college games. But he didn't attend any Washington Capitols games, even when the NHL team was in the playoffs just a few blocks from the White House. Still, every president needs regular doses of photo ops with him getting another personalized jersey...

    ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Was President Barack Obama too busy watching the “Operation Repo” marathon or something else last Friday night? When KMOX host Charlie Brennan asked now-retired St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa how the traditional call of congratulations from the White House went, La Russa suddenly realized that…it never happened. “That’s a good point, I hadn’t really even thought about that,” replied a surprised-sounding La Russa, who can be forgiven for having a few other things on his mind over the past week. “As we were getting into the World Series we had a call from the...

    politico ^ | 2/3/11 | ANDY BARR
    The news that Sarah Palin won’t be attending CPAC next week doesn’t come as much surprise. For those keeping score, she’s now been invited three times — and said no thanks each time. A Palin aide did not immediately return a request to explain why, but her reasoning is pretty evident. Continue Reading A Palin source bashed CPAC and its leader David Keene in an interview last year with POLITICO announcing that the former governor wouldn’t be attending – even though CPAC had listed her as an invited guest for the second year in a row. The source called the...

    After congressional Republicans said this week that they were too busy to accept President Barack Obama’s invitation to a bipartisan leadership meeting today, the White House without fanfare announced the meeting had been postponed until Nov. 30 to accommodate the GOP’s schedule.But House Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) saw that as a rude snub to the president as he was extending an olive branch. Mr. Hoyer said at his weekly briefing today that, to the best of his recollection

    NY Post ^ | 5/14/10 | JENNIFER FERMINO in NY and GEOFF EARLE and CHARLES HURT
    Wall Street bigs snubbed President Obama last night at a big-bucks campaign fund-raiser at The St. Regis hotel in Midtown. The gala -- where tickets went for as much as $50,000 a couple and whose proceeds were going to Democratic candidates -- featured stars such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Democratic Party regulars but few, if any, executives from the city's leading financial institutions. That was no accident, according to Democrats on Capitol Hill and Wall Street sources who say those in the financial industry are tired of being the punching bag for Obama and Democrats crafting legislation to tightly...

    This is incredible video. Obama extends his hands to shake and is snubbed by Russian diplomats. And look at his reaction. Like a child who had his kickball taken by a bully. Amazing that this was never reported by the mainstream media. What you heard from the American media was how much the Russians loved Barack. The truth is out there.

    Thursday was supposed to be the highlight of the year for more than 100 kindergarteners from Stafford County, Va. They got up early and took a chartered bus to the White House for a school field trip. But when they arrived, all the 5-year-olds got was a lesson in disappointment.

    THE nation's (Australia) two main political leaders have snubbed a top international security, energy and environment summit headed by former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev. Mr Gorbachev will co-chair the Earth Dialogues conference in Brisbane next week. But Prime Minister John Howard and Opposition Leader Kim Beazley had both declined invitations from conference organisers to attend, a spokeswoman for Earth Dialogues said today. World experts in energy, security, climate change, water resource management and sustainable development will attend Earth Dialogues, which runs July 22-24 and is part of this year's Brisbane Festival. Queensland Premier Peter Beattie will co-chair the summit with...

    June 29, 2006 -- WASHINGTON - One of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's top aides unleashed a tirade at Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid's team for snubbing the former first lady on her pet issue. Clinton's staffers were outraged earlier this week when they caught wind the Democratic leadership team - Reid (Nev.), Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) and Dick Durbin (Ill.) - had privately planned a high-profile news conference on her a plan to halt congressional pay raises until the federal minimum wage is increased. Miffed that they'd been left out of the loop, Camp Clinton managed to strong-arm Reid Tuesday morning...

    AN army of senior golfers have shot down a former US president in the Battle of Medway. Maidstone's Medway Golf Club refused former president Bill Clinton a round of golf on Thursday because the crowded course was hosting its midweek championships. The rejected Mr Clinton instead played at Sanctuary Lakes Golf Club at Point Cook, where he happily signed autographs and posed for photos. The incident has left Medway red-faced, but yesterday members were standing firm on their presidential snub. "We can't deprive the paying members of their golf, even for an ex-president," said 62-year-old member Wendy Alley. "But it...

    Venezuela snubbed a visiting congressional delegation at the Caracas airport. Just what transpired at the airport -- and why -- remains unclear. WASHINGTON -Venezuela snubbed a visiting congressional delegation at the Caracas airport. Just what transpired at the airport -- and why -- remains unclear. President Hugo Chávez's campaign to woo members of the U.S. Congress suffered a major setback this week as Venezuelan authorities, amid contradictory reports, snubbed members of a senior delegation of U.S. lawmakers by not letting them disembark from their aircraft for several hours. The lawmakers eventually left without ever getting off the plane. Chávez and...

    France is snubbed in EU jobs shake-up By David Rennie in Brussels (Filed: 10/11/2005) France was licking its wounds last night after losing control of several key posts at the European Commission in Brussels. Worse still for Paris, it lost them in a reshuffle that gave officials from Britain and Ireland, both seen as bastions of the "Anglo-Saxon free market", some of the most important jobs. Jose Manuel Barroso: five senior posts for Britain The reshuffle was masterminded by the commission president Jose Manuel Barroso, a moderate reformer and friend of Tony Blair. Mr Barroso has chafed under public rebukes...

    NAACP: Nonpartisan Branch of the Democratic Party By Andrew L. Jaffee, July 16, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms NAACP Chairman Julian Bond claims his organization is “nonpartisan” while at the same time using vitriolic rhetoric to attack the Bush administration. Why would President Bush wish to speak before the NAACP after the way in which they’ve treated him? Some claim Bush should swallow his pride and speak before the group in the interest of “outreach.” I would argue that Bush has already engaged in more outreach than any other administration in U.S. history: 2001: President George W. Bush appoints: Condoleezza Rice, Assistant...

Neither did anyone else from his department.

"This banquet is about social justice, and we aren't receiving social justice...
