Have a good weekend.

Only if it is considered a horse race.

...So nothing inspires (click here) more angst than when that same Obama stumbles, as he has leaving the gate in 2012....

People can try to tell me he didn't mean it, but, they are so very wrong.

I often get the feeling no one really knows yet understands President Obama. What you see is what you get. He isn't the 'average' politician. Compared to Romney, President Obama is a seasoned veteran. I sincerely don't appreciate the insult to one of the most decent men we have had in office in the modern era.

When anyone looks at history and wants to see it reflected in the eyes of honesty and dedication look no further than Barak Obama. All greats didn't worry about the political circus, they worried about the nation. He is on his game, if one wants to call it a game.

He is campaigning not for his own ego. He is campaigning to protect the country from one more time falling into a long held and repeated trap. He loves this country. He loves the people of this country and he is at much at war with his hope for us as he is the slacker Congress that has no hope for most of the people of this nation.

I suppose Politico believes it is inspiring him to greatness, but, he is already there. He is setting the tone for this Presidential race and I believe it is a very clear message. No President in the history of this country has had to face the circumstances Barak Obama did when entering office. I am not just referring to the financial crisis, I am quite sure FDR had the same worries; but; he came to office hated and despised with lies and distortions about his character and priorities by an entire party in this nation. I don't believe FDR had to face that.

President Obama has done remarkably well and if the people of this country listens to the rhetoric rather than the facts and believes a FORMER CEO can do better than they aren't thinking about their country, they are 'believing' the were never held hostage by the ruthless.

Mayor Booker unfortunately looked at the statements made about Romney and changed the dialogue. The President's dialogue was never about anyone but Mitt Romney. The hysteria surrounding the talk about Bain Capital and the money it made at the cost of Middle Class Americans wasn't about equity or equity markets, it was about the CEO, Mitt Romney and how he leveraged the future of a stressed industry into the dust. Maybe everyone missed that part.


But, President Obama has been faced with a changing GOP, a divided camp even the Speaker can't find loyalty from, a country rebounding from a depression and this time it was worse than FDR's, it was global, not just the USA. Not a Dust Bowl. But, a global economic collapse where no loyalty from a bank bailout he counted on stabilizing when he voted for the bailout in the first place. 

He didn't stumble, the press did. The press doesn't understand him, doesn't care to understand him and certainly can't match his character and dedication to this country. He doesn't look to Wall Street as the answer for hope anymore, he has realized a sustainable economy begins with a strong Middle Class and burgeoning small local business. He would have been satisfied to simply have everyone back at work after the bailout and work on things from there, but, he wasn't afforded that comfort. 

I have and I do admire President Obama. There is no other time in this country's history when a President had to deal with a bizarre political environment and worse economic structure with the wealth of the world sequester among so few. I don't know how he did it, but, something tells me his embrace of a very diverse Cabinet and his youthful vigor carried him through these past few years; I only hope he can continue for four more. There should no doubt he is the best President in the modern era, it could have been far worse. FDR entered a war and Obama ended one. Very different and very tough going . I love his devotion to the truth and to a path of peace. He did and does deserve the Nobel Peace Prize and I am grateful he was recognized so early for his strong character and loyalty to those outcomes that would serve the world the best. 

Stumble? I don't see how.

Taking the casualties to al Qaeda sites. Al Qaeda took the lives of innocent people in Iraq and Afganistan, too.

Why shouldn't the people of these countries know the truth. They only know what is propagandized to them.

In the tribal regions of Pakistan are some of the most dangerous criminals in the world. They covet the lives of innocent people to seek control in the name of god. That isn't what I call a free society.

Dr. Afridi was a man dedicated to human life, yet, a tribal council saw him as a danger to the sovereignty of their region and Pakistan. But, these others, the ones that kill are not dangerous to the sovereignty of Pakistan? That is no understanding of a value system the global community recognizes as equitable or even humane. This is pure brutality and while some of Pakistan like to think the tribes are valuing their sovereign nation, they are very mislead.

I realize Pakistan is a dangerous place for people of peace, but, there is a reason why that is so. It astounds me the Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was accused wrongly for a murder and blamed for the nuclear power that Kahn later sold to rouge nations. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was just as murdered as the man he was wrongly accused of killing. We still don't know who actually killed the man.

Pakistan has many, many internal struggles over power and to protect the sovereignty of tribal lands that seek power over the freely elected government is wrong. That is treason, so why aren't the criminals in the tribal areas held for trial as well? They aren't. They are allowed to brutalize and demean the lives of the very people of that region with impunity and then export it to Afghanistan and if the potential comes together, the world faces danger. It is hideous.

The Pakistan government/legislature has to ask what they want, a country that is sincerely sovereign the rest of the global community respects for the peace it holds dear including a quality of life for the people, or a tribal region wrongly protected that give comfort to those of al Qaeda. In the case of Osama bin Laden; he was living in a military complex. I mean you have got to be joking. There was a reason he was there and that was to seek power to take over the nuclear capacity of Pakistan even if he had to educate others in the academy to do it. It was no mistake he was there.

Pakistan is still not looking hard enough for the remnants of Osama's plans for that country. If they are worrying about their sovereignty from the USA, then they need to look internally to where the next treasonist is coming from. The tribal regions are not safe. They are not safe for Pakistani citizens that live in them, they have no loyalty to the sovereign government and they are not safe for global security. Sooner or later, the Pakistan legislature has to move to bring about peace in the tribal regions and secure their  citizens from the violence of those trying to overthrow the government. It is not the global community, including the USA, that seeks to end the sovereignty of Pakistan. Follow the violence and Pakistan will find their traitors. Outlawing weapon production in the tribal regions would be a good start.

US cyber experts have hacked into websites being used by al-Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen and substituted material that bragged about killing Americans with information about civilians killed in terrorist strikes, Hillary Clinton has confirmed.
In a rare public admission of the covert cyber war against extremists, the US Secretary of State says experts based at the US State Department hacked Yemeni tribal websites.
When al-Qaeda recruitment propaganda appeared on tribal sites in Yemen, Mrs Clinton said, ''within 48 hours, our team plastered the same sites with altered versions … that showed the toll al-Qaeda attacks have taken on the Yemeni people''.
The revelation provided an unusual window into low-level cyber-warfare activities that the US government rarely discusses....

How completely wonderful, Romney is like his Mommy.

Now that it comes up, I don't believe he was born in the USA. I think he is one of those people that was born on a fly over in Utah. I heard he is really Canadian or was it Kenyan and his mother really wasn't in the country when she gave birth. I would like to know if she ever had a legitimate birth certificate for Mitt.

...According (click here) to the magazine, Mitt Romney is the only presidential nominee who has had both his parents run for higher office.

His father, of course, ran for governor and president.
His mother was a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate. 

Time also says that Mitt Romney may be more like his mom than his dad. 

In extremely rare Time Magazine photos, you can see that Mitt Romney is often at his mother's side....

I think the photo was doctored.
