The Independent has more on Sarkozy's reaction to Obama's toothless resolution:

"President Obama dreams of a world without weapons . . . but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.

"Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993.

"I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? "More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map," he continued, referring to Israel.

The sharp-tongued French leader even implied that Mr Obama's resolution 1887 had used up valuable diplomatic energy.

I think we should work to add Venezuela and Cuba to that list. Obama is looking like he is going to throw Afghanistan under the bus, so we will have the extra troops to put Chavez and Castro in to spider holes.

Sark, "Obama is looking like he is going to throw Afghanistan under the bus, so we will have the extra troops to put Chavez and Castro in to spider holes."

Never will happen. These guys are Obama admirers. Obama is more likely to aid them than to go after them.

Sarkazein said...

Guy- That is if Obama will be allowed to stay in office after he throws Afghanistan under the bus.

Blogger-

Your post reminds me why I want the UN out of the US. They are ungrateful Leftists along the same lines as Obama and many Liberals.

Gregg said...

We are so damn blessed to be Americans it's pathetic. Never in the history of civilization has there been a society that has had so much power and abused it less. That's an understatement, we don't simply not "abuse" our power, we make the entire world safer and more just with it. It's such a travesty that we have a President that does not agree and feels the need to constantly apologize.

We are loosing ours (freedom), courtesy of the Obama voters.

Ensign receives handwritten confirmation
This doesn't happen often enough.

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it "Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold."

Oaez, do you know when Obama is lying? Generally his lips are moving. Other times he is signing something.

guy faulkes said...

This is somewhat off topic, but illustrates a continuity of the Obama thought process brought to our attention by Oatz"s first post.

Mr. Obama wishes to decrease the Border Patrol by about 350 agents while at the same time a teenage illegal "undocumented resident" alien from Jordan attempted to blow up a sixty story skyscraper. (Maybe the fact this terrorist was an illegal alien is negated in POV's eyes because he was not Mexican.)

In any case, this also indicates Obama does not live in the real world, but in a world that he thinks he can control simply with his divine desires. He does not realize that in order to help - defend others, we have to help - defend ourselves. Sometimes this defense must be made in other countries such as Afghanistan.

Sarkazein said...

Oatz-

Good quote find from Obama about Afghanistan.
It is a tad Clintonesque though. "Finish" could mean cut and run. It is Obama's immaturity making him think he can do anything better than anyone else. Then, when it gets down to it, he flounders.

Sarkazein said...

Guy Faulkes-

The cut in the Border Patrol is one more, and most obvious, action by Obama showing his intention to not honor his Oath of Office. There is no other country like the USA, there is no other country that could add us to a list of countries they have freed. This is it. We are it.
The State of Texas is taking Border Protection in to it's own hands, but it has to be kept low key as to not upset the ACLU and other LIberals demanding a Finish to our country. This is why secession is now a serious topic.

Sarkazein said...

Guy Faulkes-

If an alien lies about their reason for entering the USA and doesn't admit terrorist connections to Al-Qaeda they are illegal aliens. Those individuals should be treated as unlawful combatants or spies, and not be given protection under our Constitution. Don't tear down GITMO, it will just have to be rebuilt after the rest of the country realizes their mistake.

Blogger said...

Sarakein and Guy "Don't tear down GITMO"
Two strong reasons were given on this morning talk shows about putting them in maximum prisons here: One is, they would then have opportunity to radicalize fellow inmates (the last 6 plots foiled in this country were being hatched by home grown Al Queda terrorists.) Second is that Al Queda would focus on the communities where the prisons are in order to terrorize people or worse still to attempt a prison break.

You Damn fools want to start more wars?

Damn we don't have money for healtht care but we always have money for a fool's war?

We still have to find a way to win in Afghanistan and get out of Iraq and fools like Sark wants to set off South American.

Sark I think the CIA has found aging process that seems to be working with Castro just be patient he's looking older every decade. I think Obama will find an answer in the next eight years.

He probably will. He will have a lot of time to think in his cell after being jailed for his ACORN activities.

guy faulkes said...

POV, I refer you to my post stating that the defense of this country has to be made in other countries at times.

One of the few things with which I agreed with Bush was his statement about governments that harbor terrorists. He said they should take care of the terrorists or that we would. If only he had lived up to the statement, we would be better off.

POV, I notice your refusal to comment on the illegal alien "undocumented resident" that was going to blow up the skyscraper.

I missed that post and that news story.

If this person was caught I'm sure after a fair trial if convicted the person will serve time and then be deported. The person would then be a criminal but should still not be tortured.

Notice Fidel looks almost fifty years older than he did in the old news footage from 1959 when he took power. The CIA aging plan is working.

I think he has met his match with Obama, I don't think the Ruz can remain in power another 7 1/2 years.

Just think Obama may see what the last 10 presidents could not do normal relations with Cuba.

Liberal POV said...

Guy

Do you really believe either Cuba or Venezuela are any threat to the United States?

Did you hear this on the fear network or hate radio?

guy faulkes said...

The terrorists they contain are a threat. That makes them a threat. If you harbor terrorists, you are a terrorist. As I said in a previous post, this is one of the few statements of which I agreed with Bush.

In my opinion, the same can be said of POV. As he aids and abets terrorists with his unconditional support of illegal aliens that include terrorists, he is a terrorist.

Sarkazein said...

"I think he has met his match with Obama, I don't think the Ruz can remain in power another 7 1/2 years."-POV

Just for fun, I will try and decipher that POV quote.


Obama and Castro are cut from the same cloth. And Castro renamed his brother Raul.

PORLAMAR, Venezuela – Venezuela's science and technology minister said his country is working with Russia to detect deposits of uranium but withdrew an earlier denial that the country was also working with Iran.
Jesse Chacon originally denied the reports that Venezuela is receiving support from Iran to seek uranium, but clarified later Saturday that his comments were only in regard to Russia and that exploration efforts with Iran fall under the direction of Venezuela's Mining Ministry.

Sense you're have trouble I'll give you a hint Fidel Castro Ruz is 83.

oatz said...

Just 41% of voters nationwide now favor the health care reform proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down two points from a week ago and the lowest level of support yet measured.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% are opposed to the plan.

oatz said...

Few nations are as generous with their time and money as the United States, but right now Americans are a suspicious bunch.

Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide say they’re at least somewhat angry about the current policies of the federal government. Thirty-six percent (36%) are Very Angry.

Despite the high level of political anger last year that helped fuel President Obama’s election, 59% say the current level of political anger in the country is higher than it was when George W. Bush was president.

Sarkazein said...

I am so proud, that I didn't know the real last name of Castro, and don't use it as a pet name.

Sarkazein said...

Obama's important war, Afghanistan, has put in one conversation in 70 days with his own commander.
Obama has already thrown Afghanistan under the bus.
But, he and Michelle will walk the red carpet in Copenhagen this week to drum up support for the Chicago Olympics. What will be the cost and carbon foot print of this date night for the Obamas?

Liberal POV said...

Oatz

"Thirty-six percent (36%) are Very Angry."

That's what I've been saying those would be the Fox News and hate radio people or anger addicts. They like it that way and nothing Obama does will change that 36%.

Blogger said...

Lib Thanks for the link to Gallup. Which poll are we suppose to look at, the one today that says Republicans and Independents stay more up-to-date on news than do Democrats? Or, the chart that shows the president's ratings headed South?

oatz said...

he military general credited for capturing Saddam Hussein and killing the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq says he has only spoken to President Obama once since taking command of Afghanistan.

“I’ve talked to the president, since I’ve been here, once on a VTC [video teleconferece],” General Stanley McChrystal told CBS reporter David Martin in a television interview that aired Sunday.

“You’ve talked to him once in 70 days?” Mr. Martin followed up.

“That is correct,” the general replied.

This revelation comes amid the explosive publication of an classified report written by the general that said the war in Afghanistan “will likely result in failure” of more troops are not added next year. Yet, the debate over health care reform continues to dominate Washington’s political discussions.

Former U.S. Ambassador for the United Nations John Bolton said this was indicative of President Obama’s misplaced priorities.

No problem lets just keep sources we both agree on when possible.

Gregg said...

Blogger and Lib,

I'd like to offer an opinion of polls. First, I don't put much stock in any of them especially in regards to the 2010 elections. As far as gauging public opinion I have a problem with the media conducting a poll and then making the results news in an effort to shape public opinion. I also don't believe that governing by mob rule is wise or courageous. What really prompted me to post was the idea of finding "sources we both agree on when possible". The "source" is largely irrelevant. The truth is what matters and can come from any source.

As an example of how the media tries to shape public opinion I'd point to the CNN poll that showed a 14 point gain in support of Obama's health care after his speech. We now know that the speech was a dud and support has actually waned. How does this happen? Like this:

"The sample of speech-watchers in this poll was 45 percent Democratic and 18 percent Republican. Our best estimate of the number of Democrats in the voting age population as a whole indicates that the sample is about 8-10 points more Democratic than the population as a whole."

oatz said...

Here's a shocker.
ACORN may have helped Al Franken steal the US senate seat from Minnesota.
The Minnesot Star-Tribune reported:

But ACORN does have a special place in its heart for at least one prominent Minnesota politician. Last year, it showered praise on Al Franken, endorsing his run for the U.S. Senate. Franken returned the esteem: "I'm thrilled and honored to receive this endorsement," he gushed in a press release. He added that he was "more motivated than ever to work with ACORN."

...ACORN's registration drives "routinely produce fraudulent registrations," according to a staff report released in July 2009 by the ranking Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The report describes ACORN as "a criminal conspiracy" and details violations ranging from unpaid taxes to a million-dollar embezzlement and cover-up. "To date," the report says, "nearly 70 ACORN employees have been convicted in 12 states for voter-registration fraud."

Sarkazein said...

Oatz-

ACORN is not allowed to endorse, yet they did it anyway and received our money to run their criminal enterprise. If our Federal tax money went to help a psycho clown like Al Franken get elected, then our election system is no longer viable.

HOUSTON – Precinct 4 constables have arrested a 27-year-old Colombian national who they say is responsible for hundreds of burglaries in the Houston area.

They believe the suspect is part of a Colombian gang that specifically targeted Indian and other ethnic homes in the area. He's been accused of burglarizing 93 homes in Precinct 4.///
