"A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee." - Bill Clinton
Haven’t gotten through it but let’s skip over the Reid comment, frankly because he makes me nauseous and smells, to address Clinton's comment with reference to Obama fetching coffee. Was Clinton's comment rude? Perhaps…is it offensive? Yes, if you are Obama and only if you're Obama. Otherwise, get the fudge over it. Its more of a personal slight towards Obama than anything else.
Defending Clinton is not something I relish in doing but these people in the media (particularly on cable news show) who are dismissing Reid’s imbecilic racist statement while trying to bash Clinton and throw the racism book at him are perversely incorrect or just pure charlatans clinging so tightly onto their hidden agendas.
Clinton spoke about Obama…Obama happens to be black and white…saying something rude about Obama doesn’t mean that it is in reference to his skin color. That doesn’t mean that people don’t make racist comments. For instance Harry Reid’s comment was pretty moronic and racist. But by attempting to decipher what Clinton meant by his comment, we begin to take on the role of the thought police. He said that Obama would have been getting his coffee a couple years ago. To me, that sounds like he was talking about his inexperience, his younger age, his thin resume, etc. After all, he’s not wrong, a few years ago, Obama was a nobody freshman Illinois Senator. To Clinton, this guy probably looked as if he were one of Clinton’s interns…wow I just fell into that didn’t I? (Well not one of those interns but you know what I mean...an intern not "an intern"...)
Nonetheless, fetching coffee is not racist unless you infer that the person is fetching coffee because of their skin color. If we start beating Clinton up about this then it sets a dangerous precedent for the future. What are we allowed to say? Are we allowed to even joke around anymore? Can we be rude without being racist?
What Harry Reid said was wrong, Clinton…rude, pompous, arrogant but I’m not in his head (nor would I want to be) to know what he meant by it and neither is anybody else. If you want to scold anyone, turn to Reid, if you’re over it (much like I am) then move on and write a blog about it or something.
By the way, I’m not white so I’m totally allowed to write about matters of race. Got to love these exceptions right? (being facetious)

Don't misunderstand, I love snow, not only because its beautiful and calming but because Al Gore gets proven wrong each and every time it snows here in DC.

Obama couldn’t have been clearer on the campaign trail when he pledged, not once, not twice, but at least eight times that he would have C-SPAN televise the health-crap bill negotiations, negotiations that usually take place in closed backrooms where shady deals are made.
Concerned by the lack of transparency in this administration, C-SPAN CEO, Brian Lamb, sent a letter to the stooges in Congress, oops I mean Nancy and Harry, asking them to allow C-SPAN to come in and broadcast the reconciliation negotiations...again, not out of the ordinary since Obama made the pledge himself.
The C-SPAN networks will commit the necessary resources to covering all of these sessions LIVE and in their entirety...
President Obama, Senate and House leaders, many of your rank-and-file members, and the nation’s editorial pages have all talked about the value of transparent discussions on reforming the nation’s health care system. Now that the process moves to the critical stage of reconciliation between the Chambers, we respectfully request that you allow the public full access, through television, to legislation that will affect the lives of every single American.
We hope you will give serious consideration to this request...
For the left, the ends justify the means. They want to pass this bill by any means necessary and deal with the repercussions later. This bill is so awful and the stooges are so corrupt that they have to pass it quickly without anyone reading it, no bi-partisan support, and what's even more concerning is the fact that they have to bribe their own party to vote for this horrendous bill. How can anyone support this bill based on those facts?Even if they support the content, the process itself should cause hesitation to supporters and opponents alike.
Ha. The notion that they would allow C-SPAN to broadcast the negotiations…they won’t even let one single Republican in! Freakin Nuts!
Brian Lamb deserves recognition and applause for questioning this administration, something that he MSM libtards clearly could not…or would not do.

Could it be true! It is being reported that Sen. Chris Dodd is not going to be seeking reelection!
Sen. Christopher Dodd of Connecticut, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and a Democratic Party stalwart in the Senate, is set to announce today that he will not seek re-election this year, according to a party strategist familiar with his plans.
Sen. Dodd's decision was the latest in a string of big-name Democratic retirements revealed Tuesday as the party struggles to contend with a challenging political climate.
If this information is accurate then 2010 just may turn out to be a good year and the beginning of a great decade!
If all these dem Senators and Congressmen are planning on retiring after this term, then there is a legitimate argument to be made about their voting on a disastrous health-fraud bill and their lack of concern relating to its consequences…they are basically going to hit us while we are turned around and run.
While I normally don’t use profanity, there are certain moments that call for it! This is one. It’s a b*tch move.
The Heckler was right!

For the most part, I would say that I'm a realist but I choose to remain a little bit more optimistic regarding regime change in Iran. I can understand why Krauthammer is less enthusiastic, if any other President were in power, I think they would have certainly used the opportunity in Iran to not only assist Iranians in obtaining freedom but also because it would mean a more stable Iran, one less crazy dictator, and more stability in the region.
I'm not confident that Obama views this as an opportunity but rather an annoyance that has caused his bowing-begging foreign policy to come to a halt...for now that is.
