A few more picks for your Friday enjoyment

The previous post was a collection of links organized around a single topic — sudden Liberal claims of conservative violence.  This post is more loosely organized, since it simply has links of things I found interesting.  Here goes:

National Review/Michael Fumento:  The People Speak, which holds up the truth to Obama’s lie that Obama Care is a bill of the people, by the people and for the people.

The Rubin Report:  Obama Foreign Policy: One-Third of Its Term Done; Not a Hundredth of its Lesson Learned (I think that post title is pretty self-explanatory).

The New Editor has a cartoon that will make you laugh, even though it tells a pointed political truth.

The Anchoress has a post that is nicely in keeping with my post, yesterday, about Obama’s singular lack of graciousness.  In other words, she’s noticed it too.

And on the subject of Obama’s ungraciousness, here’s a blog from Britain’s Telegraph stating just how unutterably heinous and contemptuous Obama’s treatment of Netanyahu actually was.  This man is despicable, truly despicable.

    “… (Mr. Obama) immediately presented Mr Netanyahu with a list of 13 demands designed both to the end the feud with his administration and to build Palestinian confidence ahead of the resumption of peace talks.”
    The Telegraph takes far too much at face value.  Good journalism involves reporting statements made about motives, but not assuming they are true (especially when coming from serial liars).
    After the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, the Austro-Hungarians presented a list of humiliating demands to Serbia to which no self-respecting nation could agree, and a deadline of about 24 hours, if memory serves (although it’s been almost 96 years now, so memory may not serve).  Between a rock and a hard place, the Serbs swallowed their pride and agreed to most everything on the list and hurriedly ran their response over to the Austro-Hungarians, arriving within minutes of the deadline, only to have the door slammed in their faces.  For the Austro-Hungarians, the idea of a diplomatic solution had been a farce all along.  The war was on.
    The Israelis are in an incredibly difficult position, but they would do well to acknowledge that the present US administration would be delighted to see them wiped off the map entirely, but for domestic political reasons must stop slightly short of actually saying so.  They should make plans for an attack on Iran with the assumption that they will only get one shot at it.  UN condemnation, US condemnation, boycotts and embargoes are a given, regardless of the power of the attack, so this simplifies their decision matrix.  Reality doesn’t always wear a smile, but that does not change the fact that it’s always with us.

    Agreed; I’m sure this last week has been an incredible eye opener for all those “independents” and “moderates”.   I’m a little surprised at how quickly he and his cohorts in House and Senate are deconstructing and damaging this country.   I figured he would have to at least appear to be governing from the center for the first year or two.
    Have you seen the video of him mocking the “Armageddon” rhetoric from the Republicans?  He really sounds more like a wannabe Jon Stewart or lefty comedian than a president.  All that is missing is the foul language.
