    Bam admin today. Why it's ALL political at the Obama White House

    Today, the Obama White House demonstrated why it is driven by nothing but crass partisan politics.

    To wit:

    1. Bibi's visit to the White House.  Despite this administration being openly anti-semitic, and clearly anti-Israel, Obama today attempted to shore up the traditionally Democrat Jewish vote by cozying up to Israel and Netanyahu.  I can't wait until Bibi's out of power and writes a book about his impressions of American leader, since his career has spanned several.  Let's find out just how stupid American Jews are (or, how it's just the right-wing nuts who care about Israel) and whether they return to the fold and vote Dem in November, stay away, or turn to Republicans, who are actually concerned with the future of Israel and the sole functioning (functioning!) democracy in the Middle East.
    2. The attack on Arizona and filing suit against SB1070.  The administration and Obama himself have done nothing but attack this bill on civil rights grounds for weeks.  Today, they issued a schizophrenic lawsuit that simultaneously claims the bill makes it both more difficult and easier for the Feds to enforce immigration laws, therefore, it's unconstitutional.  Prognosis of victory for Feds:  Poor.  Interestingly, no civil rights arguments being made.  Theory there is the Feds are waiting for some dumb Arizona cop to actually violate someone's civil rights so they can have a plaintiff.  Of course, this is all about Hispanic votes.  Pure and simple.
    3. NASA outreach to Muslims. For every thinking American male of my age, NASA and space exploration had a special place in our hearts.  With the end of manned space flight nearing, NASA is now reduced to hopping rides with the Russians and making Muslims feel good about themselves.  Look, this agency ceased being well managed in December 1972.  Maybe we should just close the whole damn thing down, with our NASA Administrator forced to kiss a bunch of asses to get anything done.  Or, perhaps this is a massive, well-coordinated PR effort to distract attention from the 1000's of lay-offs announced today due to Bam admin space policy.
    As Charles Krauthammer said about this today, "You can't make this up."

    Regarding NASA's latest mission:

    "to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering."

    Sounds eerily similar to the starship Enterprise's five-year mission:

    "to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before."

    In a less fictional setting, GM has undergone several changes in slogans since Obama's socialistic takeover of the once publicly-owned corporation:

    May 2009 - "Yes We Can"

    October 2009 - "May the best car win"

    February 2010 - Chevrolet Dropped "An American Revolution"

    Can we draw any logical conclusion from such interesting changes during Obama's regime? Does the government wish us to be dependent, passive, and non-combative. Wonder what Obama has in mind for U.S. citizens?

    Well, how far is it to that new mosque that opened not long ago in your region?
