Ghadaffi Thanks His Supporters in the US Congress… Republicans

Ghadaffi Gives a Shout Out to His Biggest Supporters

Qaddafi Writes to Congress

No surprise here that Quadaffi knows which side his bread is buttered on. The GOP marched in lockstep once again to sell out America for a foreign dictator with oil.

Bend over, America!

Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi has written to members of Congress thanking them for criticizing President Obama last week over his involvement in the NATO-led military campaign in Libya.

“I want to express my sincere gratitude for your thoughtful discussion of the issues,” Colonel Qaddafi wrote in the letter, a copy of which was supplied to The New York Times by a person seeking to defend the administration’s policy. “We are confident that history will see the wisdom of your country in debating these issues.”

Colonel Qaddafi did not refer specifically to a resolution passed by the Housethat rebuked the administration for maintaining an American role in the campaign without the consent of Congress. But he expressed hope that the lawmakers would continue to pressure the administration.

“We are counting on the United States Congress to its continued investigation of military activities of NATO and its allies to confirm what we believe is a clear violation of U.N. Security Council resolution 1973,” Colonel Qaddafi said in the three-page letter, which was not addressed to any particular lawmaker.

A spokesman for Speaker John A. Boehner, Republican of Ohio, who introduced last week’s resolution, said his office had received the letter but was not able to vouch for its authenticity. The letter was received by the administration through the same channels that Colonel Qaddafi has sent other letters, another official said.

“If authentic, this incoherent letter only reinforces that Gaddafi must go. There’s no disagreement about that,” said the spokesman for Mr. Boehner, Brendan Buck. “That’s why so many Americans have questions – which the White House refuses to answer – about the administration committing U.S. resources to an operation that doesn’t make his removal a goal.”

GOP Backstabs Obama, America…Again.

When TF is Obama going to learn? These renegade GOP barstids aren’t in this for anything to do with helping America…

They are in it solely for political power and to satisfy their rich benefactor’s desires.

There quite simply is no “bipartisanship” possible with a rabid dog.

GOP Blindsides Obama, Blocks Russian Arms Treaty

President Obama seems likely to end 2010 with one less feather in his cap than he counted on: The new arms control treaty with Russia that numbered among his top foreign policy goals for the year appears to be dead in the water. The White House was “blindsided and angered” yesterday, reports the New York Times, when Sen. Jon Kyl, the GOP-designated arbiter of the deal who the administration had foisted all its hopes on, moved to block a vote on the treaty—something the White House learned about by way of reporters.

Kyl said he didn’t think enough time remained in the lame-duck session to address “the complex and unresolved issues related to Start and modernization.” The administration had spent many months trying to woo Kyl and his fellow Senate Republicans, committing to spending some $80 billion to modernize our nuclear weapons complex and on Friday throwing another $4.1 billion in the pot. The Times reports that White House officials met with, called, or briefed Kyl and his staff some 29 times regarding the treaty—according to which both countries would reduce their nuclear arsenals and permit mutual inspections—and had been optimistic about sealing the deal this week. Chances of it being ratified now are slim.

 

 

Speaking of Dead Elephants in the Room

Dragging the Dick out of his cave, trying to rehabilitate Neut, and having McCain on the talk circuit…

GOP Tries Beating the Horse Again

GOP Tries Rasing Conservatism Again

Neither is the tired old Republican program of racial animosity, white fright, and FUD.

Fresh on the report that the average demographic for watchers of Faux News is a 65 year old white male, come even more dire news…

There aren’t any young Republicans.

Indeed, the failed conservative programs of the last 15 years have invigorated young folks to the point, I think it’s safe to say the dead horse the Republicans in the picture are beating… Is conservatism.

If the Republican Party thinks it has problems now, just wait. The party’s incredibly poor performance among young voters in the 2008 election raises questions about the long-term competitiveness of the GOP.

The “millennials” — the generation of Americans born between 1982 and 2003 — now identify as Democrats by a ratio of 2-to-1. They are the first in four generations to contain more self-perceived liberals than conservatives.

And a recent Daily Kos tracking poll should send shudders down the spine of any Republican who understands how powerful a voting bloc this generation could become over the next decade.

Only 9 percent of millennials polled expressed a favorable opinion of the Republican Party. Only 7 percent were positive about the GOP’s congressional leaders. By contrast, 65 percent of millennials had a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party, and a majority also approved of congressional Democrats.

Jonestown Cult Mass Murder/Suicide 1978

Jonestown Cult Mass Murder/Suicide 1978

Now those of you who either a) weren’t alive in 1978 or were babies, probably don’t know about Jim Jones and Jonestown – which was the largest mass suicide/murder in modern American history or b) were  brought up incensed by the fake outrage, AKA the Waco Whackos, and as such are probably too stupid to figure out why their elders weren’t up in arms over a cult.
