Pinocchio, Snow White, and Superman are out for a stroll in town one day.
As they walked, they come across a sign: "Beauty contest for the most beautiful woman in the world."  "I am entering!" said Snow White. After half an hour she comes out and
they ask her, "Well, how'd ya do?"   "First Place!" said Snow White.
They continue walking and they see a sign: "Contest for the strongest man in the world."
"I'm entering," says Superman. After half an hour, he returns and they ask him, "How did you make out?"  "First Place," answers Superman. "Did you ever doubt?"
They continue walking when they see a sign: "Contest! Who is the greatest liar in the world?" Pinocchio enters.After half an hour he returns with tears in his eyes.  "What happened?" they asked.  "Who the hell is this Nancy Pelosi?" asked Pinocchio.

What more can I add?  Pelosi has outdone herself.  The Democrats cannot stand their own prosperity.  Obama makes a rookie mistake by elevating Cheney to his level and then getting schooled by the senior (ie experienced) Mr. Cheney.  Reid is going to lose his seat in Nevada.  The once promised powerhouse is fracturing as it turns to bickering and political infighting.  Ahhh....American politics has been restored.

Great article in WSJ a couple of days ago comparing Obama's policies to the South Park episode "Underpants Gnomes."  The gnomes steal underpants and then sell them for a profit in the episode and the execute their famous strategy.

Phase 1 - steal underpants
Phase 2 - ?
Phase 3 - Make profit!

What does this have to do with Obama?  Simple...

Problem:  Iran

Phase 1 - talk to them
Phase 2 - ?
Phase 3 - World peace!

Problem: Global warming

Phase 1 - Introduce the green initiative
Phase 2 - Repeal the first and second laws of thermodynamics
Phase 3 - Carbon neutrality

Problem:  Gitmo and torture

Phase 1 - Announce closure of Gitmo
Phase 2 - (Ignore everything else)
Phase 3 - Close Gitmo

Hilarious.  Absolutely hilarious.  And true.  You see folks, this is what we stick in the mud conservatives were getting at when we called Obama out for being a junior, inexperienced Senator and statesman.  Great idea, no substance, no plan results in irrelevance.

Enjoy your day, weekand month.

Every 8th grader taking a US History and Government class can tell you the Legislative branch makes policy, the Executive branch carries out policy, and the Judiciary interprets and rules on the constitutionality of said policy.
Only problem with this is that the executive branch is now easily the largest "maker" of policies in today's government. I haven't heard the quote or whatever, but it seems to me that judges proposing policies wouldn't be any different than the president proposing policies(as occurs now).  New laws still have to go through the maze that is Congress, and still have to resist veto by the president even after they make it through Congress.

Gastra, you make great points about the Koreans.  Now the Iranians are getting frisky again, deploying naval vessels into the gulf.  Both nations are bent on developing their nuclear capabilities and delivery systems.  Both have flagrantly thumbed their noses at the US and the rest of the world; opting instead to not be a part of the world community.  I find myself wondering, how far will we let these rogue nations go, before we decide we have to take action.  With this administration, what will that action be?  Will we take a hard line, or pursue a policy of appeasement?  One only needs to look at Munich 1938 to know how well appeasement works, but I can't see Obama and Clinton taking a hard line.  To catch a thief, you have to think like a thief.  History has proven that every so often the world needs the US to clean up the mess.  We're going to have do it again.  The question is how big will the mess be?

I also find myself disturbed by the president's nomination of Madame Sotomoyer (sp?).  Not because she is a liberal.  The president has the prerogative to nominate who he wants, I get that.  And he has the votes in the Senate to get it done.  However, her statements about judges making policy is dangerous.  Every 8th grader taking a US History and Government class can tell you the Legislative branch makes policy, the Executive branch carries out policy, and the Judiciary interprets and rules on the constitutionality of said policy.  As a side note, let's stop with the "compelling life story" as a qualification to sit on the court.  Every human being has a compelling life story.

Thought you fell off the Earth.  Or maybe after reading the Home land Security memo, were deemed an threat to national security and picked up for questioning.  It will be interesting how he deals with North Korea.  Obama has no leverage, and Kim knows this.  What are we going to do, appeal to China.  Good luck with that one.  Sanctions?  Have they worked for North Korea before?  This is a test for Obama, and thus far he has failed.  The Koreans could have conducted this test back in  2008, but waited for the new administration (Obama or McCain) to see how far they could push and what they could get in return.  North Korea scammed Clinton, scammed Bush, and now Obama seems to be ready to continue the trend.  North Korea will get something to "give  up" their nuclear ambitions.  But we all know they won't, because we have proven that our bite has no teeth.   Time to draw a line in the sand, question is will we.
