Sarah Palin socks it to Obama

Wednesday, June 16, 2010



Sarah has it right. Stop the leak already. Don't use this as a political football to try to get your far left energy agenda through a rightfully reluctant Congress. Do not use this crisis for political gain. That is unseemly and the American people can see right through it.

Once the leak is capped, then we can talk about how this happened and what can be done to prevent it from happening again. But for now, all of this pie in the sky talk about green energy policy will not accomplish anything while thousands of gallons of crude are leaking into the Gulf of Mexico.

Obama is supposed to be so smart. They said that Bush did nothing about Hurricane Katrina. But now those same Bush critics seems to be giving Obama a pass even for a much worse situation. But now the ball is in Obama's court. His incompetence over this crisis is glaring. We are going to have to start calling him President Oilbama.

George W. Bush Facebook Page

Thursday, June 10, 2010

President Bush now has a Facebook page. I already joined the page and it has 142,935 followers already and the page has been online for only a few days.

Welcome to Facebook Mr. President.

I found this very interesting.
Since leaving office, President Bush has remained active. He has visited 20 states and 8 countries; given over 65 speeches; launched the George W. Bush Presidential Center; participated in 4 policy conferences through The Bush Institute; finished the first draft of his memoir, “Decision Points”; and partnered with President Clinton to establish the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.
It looks like the president is having a useful and active retirement. I wish him and Laura well. By the way, Laura's book is #1 on the New York Times best selling list.

More on the incident off the coast of Gaza

These are the facts that the Israel haters don't want you to know.
The Israel Navy commandos who on Monday raided a flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip with humanitarian aid had no choice but to defend themselves against the violent activists, a captain of the elite marines unit who carried out the operation said Tuesday.

"We knew there would be resistance, but not at such an enormous scale," said Captain R., who led one of the teams and was wounded in the mission. "Every [activist] that approached us wanted to kill us."

Captain R. was the second commando to be dropped from a military helicopter onto the Turkish-flagged ship. During the mission, a large mob of the activists hurled him from the upper to lower deck of the ship.

From the Rambam Hospital in Haifa, Captain R. said that every commando who entered the ship was met by a number of activists who charged at the soldiers and attacked them. At least 75 percent of the activists took part in what the soldiers later described as a "lynch."

Activists on board a six-ship flotilla carrying aid to the Gaza Strip tried to lynch the Israel Navy commandos who boarded their Turkish-flagged boat early Monday, Israel Defense Forces sources told Haaretz on Monday afternoon. At least nine people were killed and several more were wounded in the fighting that erupted aboard one of the ships.

The IDF confirmed that at least seven Navy commandos had been wounded, two of them seriously, in a fight which apparently broke out after activists tried to seize their weapons.

The commandos, who intercepted the Turkish ferry Mavi Marmara after it ignored orders to turn back from its course to Gaza, said they had encountered violent resistance from activists armed with sticks and knives. According to the commandos, the activists threw one of the soldiers from the upper deck to the lower after they boarded. The organizers of the flotilla said the troops opened fire first.

An Israeli military spokesman said some of the commandos were equipped with paintball guns but the non-lethal weapons were not enough against activists who charged in with batons.

"They had pistols with live ammunition as back-up, to defend themselves," he said. The IDF said it had confiscated two pistols from the boat.

One of the commandos told reporters he descended by rope from a helicopter onto one of the six ships in the convoy and was immediately attacked by a group of people waiting for them.

"They beat us with metal sticks and knives," he said. "There was live fire at some point against us."
