Man Standing Outside Congress Speaks For Millions Of Americans Today


I don't know if you looked close enough at that woodpecker/weasel photo today...



Steve Bell -on Binyamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress

Netanyahu, Wrong Then, Wrong Now


CNN’s Christiane Amanpour: Netanyahu Speech Was ‘Strangelovian’

It was a very dark Strangelovian speech painting the picture of a dystopian world, raising the spectre of a genocidal nation, a genocidal regime spraying nuclear weapons to annihilate the whole world and the whole region. Now, obviously many people are very concerned about Iran and there is a deep lack of trust, but surely the same was said of the Soviet Union all those years ago.


Nancy Pelosi: "I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister's speech-saddened by the insult..."

“That is why, as one who values the U.S. – Israel relationship, and loves Israel, I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech – saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5 +1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation."

the rest:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi appeared visibly angry during the latter half of the speech, frequently gesticulating to House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer and declining to stand when Mr. Netanyahu said the deal being worked on with Iran is a bad deal.

Reagan Adviser Describes Teaparty: "Yes they are really rather stupid & not very well read"

Last week at CPAC potential Republican candidates were invoking President Ronald Reagan ad-nauseam. Ed Schultz asked Bruce Bartlett, former adviser to President Ronald Reagan, how would Reagan have been treated at CPAC.

“I think he probably would be booed out of the crowd,” Bruce Bartlett said. “If only because he gave amnesty to illegal aliens back in 1986. Nativists like Representative Steve King routinely denounce Reagan for that. They would have denounced him for raising taxes eleven times. They would be have denounced him for raising the debt limit. They would have denounced him for running budget deficits. They would have denounced him for supporting labor unions. … And we are not even getting into all the Liberal things that he did as governor such as signing the most Liberal abortion law in the United States. I think this guy definitely would not be a favorite of this crowed.

Ed Schultz then asked if it is that Conservatives and CPAC attendees just do not know their history.

“Well I guess they have completely forgotten about George W. Bush whom they defended to the heavens when he was in office,” Bruce Bartlett said. “But yes they are really rather stupid and not very well read. To them Reagan is a distant figure in history.”
