The president has made it official. The Global War on Terror (GWOT) is over and is being replaced by what it should have been all along: a vigilant, forceful, counter-terrorism campaign against our nation's enemies. Gone soon will be Guantanamo, torture, renditions and extra-legal or illegal means of confronting our foes that have earned us the opprobrium of the world community.
“You can fool some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time!”
Apparently it’s too much for Obama, that fraud and foreigner, to produce proof - beyond any shadow of a doubt - that he’s a natural born citizen. Shame on the conservative cowards for failing to demand it! No change there.

Dick Cheney is the rabbit who keeps on ticking. In an interview, VP Cheney says basically that he'd do it all over again... Guantanamo, torture, the Iraq invasion, etc., etc. And, that he was instrumental in many of the decisions, such as torture and indefinite imprisonment.
By now you've probably seen the infamous flying shoes propelled at President Bush by an angry Iraqi reporter during a press conference yesterday. http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/asiapcf/12/15/bush.afghanistan/index.html
Many news organs are reporting that being hit with shoes is one of the worst insults that can be levied in Iraq. Here's the BBC report: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7783325.stm
Where is the feminist outcry on a story like this ?
Will Obama put a stop to this trade deficit ?
Chinese auto production has quintupled since 2001. She now produces more cars
than Germany and may exceed the United States in 2009. While Chinese auto
exports are still heavily in parts, finished cars are coming soon to a dealer
near you. The Chinese will likely run the sword through the last standing member
of America's Big Three.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- While the rest of Wall Street got clobbered again Friday, a handful of insurance stocks rallied sharply on speculation that the Treasury Department may soon invest in companies in the battered industry.
The US is angling to enlarge NATO with the addition of Albania and Croatia. It is just crazy to bloat NATO with minor countries that can only increase our chances of becoming caught up in some international crisis. This is the very kind of entangling alliance that started WWI (in another Balkan tinderbox) and that the founders of this country warned about.
A hair-raising peek into the Taliban and tribal influence in Afghanistan in the latest Rolling Stone Magazine does not give one optimism that either McCain or Obama really understands what we are up against in that country. More troops will not produce the desired result.
Here's a great metaphor for the current financial mess: "let's say that we are witnessing the two stages of a tsunami.

NEW YORK: If the U.S. government moves ahead with a plan to take ownership stakes in American banks, as seems likely, it would be an exceptional step - but not an unprecedented one.
AKRON, OH: Rows of shiny, all-American automobiles glimmered in the sun. I marvelled as their owners diligently polished all these lovingly-preserved Chevys, Fords and Plymouths.
They'd picked a glorious October morning for this classic car fair. But I couldn't help thinking there was something poignant about celebrating America's industrial past here, right in the heart of the rust belt.
NEW YORK - Trillions in stock market value — gone. Trillions in retirement savings — gone. A huge chunk of the money you paid for your house, the money you're saving for college, the money your boss needs to make payroll — gone, gone, gone.
