AP-Gfk poll: Obama approval hits 60 percent
President Barack Obama's approval rating has hit its
highest point in two years — 60 percent — and more than half of Americans
now say he deserves to be re-elected, according to an Associated Press-GfK
poll taken after U.S. forces killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
Obama mocks Republican position on immigration
President Barack Obama on Tuesday stood at the U.S.-Mexico
border for the first time since winning the White House and declared it more
secure than ever. He mocked Republican lawmakers for blocking immigration
over border security alone, saying they won't be happy until they get a moat
with alligators along the border.
Obama 'to deliver speech to Muslim world'
WASHINGTON (AFP) - President Barack Obama will deliver a
speech reaching out to the Muslim world, in the aftermath of the killing of
Osama bin Laden and amid ongoing unrest in the Middle East and North Africa,
the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice had eight years to get Osama. They went after
Saddam instead and now they are trying to claim credit for Obama's victory that
he achieved in two short years. I think they're jealous as hell.
I'll take a high achiever at Harvard over a low achiever at Harvard as my
president any day.
"In the wake of President Obama's decision to not
release pictures of Osama bin Laden's body, a number of new conspiracy theories
are surfacing claiming that bin Laden is not really dead. Which means Barack
Obama will go down in history as the first black person ever to have to prove
that he killed someone."
Majority of GOP Wants a Third Party
Fifty-two percent of Republicans
want a major third party to compete with Democrats and the GOP, according to
a Gallup poll released Monday. An even larger percentage of Tea Partiers, 60
percent, want a new party.

Obama capped Osama.
Quick, efficient and without any cowboy braggadocio.
Amidst all the crapola I am dealing with (believe me, you don’t want to know)
all I could think about was 911 when I heard of Osama's death.
I not only thought about 911 but I remembered a touching email I received
shortly after 911 happened, from a resident of New York City. He said that he
knew Americans were upset about what had devastated their country but they did
not know the horrific feeling of being there. The feeling of wondering whether
the air was safe to breathe in Manhattan, what to do with the dust that covered
the contents of their homes, and how to find the time to grieve for their loved
ones that were lost in the Twin Towers.
I received similar emails from D.C. and New Jersey.
I went to D.C. in April of 2002 to attend a fundraiser that
www.bartcop.com was holding for Julie
Hiatt Steele, who was hounded and prosecuted by Independent Counsel Kenneth
Starr during the Clinton impeachment campaign of 1998-99, and was facing severe
financial and personal difficulties arising from Starr's vendetta against her.
Anyway, I drove by the Pentagon and my heart sank. I drove by again, and again
To fully answer your question, Alexi, Obama inspired me and I am thrilled to be
of the soul are more dangerous and more numerous than those of the body.

"Newt Gingrich plans to announce his campaign for president this Wednesday. I
don't know about his chances. I mean, I'm not saying Gingrich peaked in the
'90s, but his campaign is being sponsored by Tamagotchis and Crystal Pepsi."
Book bags and Bullets
Republicans in the Texas Senate on Monday approved
allowing concealed handgun license holders to carry weapons into public college
buildings and classrooms, moving forward on a measure that had stalled until
supporters tacked it on to a universities spending bill.

If You Can't Beat Them, Buy Them
A conservative billionaire who opposes government
meddling in business has bought a rare commodity: the right to interfere in
faculty hiring at a publicly funded university.
A foundation bankrolled by Libertarian businessman Charles G. Koch has pledged
$1.5 million for positions in Florida State University's economics department.
In return, his representatives get to screen and sign off on any hires for a new
program promoting "political economy and free enterprise."
I'm ashamed that my university would
be bought out.
