Hillary does Africa……..

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in the middle of a 12 day trip through Africa. She is stopping in some places that hasn’t seen an American senior official in a long, long time. Good for her. Hillary, as usual, does a very thorough job when she starts something, and she is doing a good one as America’s foreign affairs secretary………..

Note: in quite a few places she stops in the Chinese have set up shop already…………..

Republicans for 2012………

Over at Politico…they did today the first of many early pieces on the 2012 Presidential Race……..the democrats will run Obama for his second term (he’s only been President for few more than 200 day so far! ) but the list for the Republicans is very  long indeed, right now………

Romney, Gingrich, Huckabee and Palin round out my first tier…..the second tier would consist of ……Cantor, Thune and  DeMint…bringing up the rear would be Jindal,Barbour and, well yes, Pawlenty……..it is reported that these people  have spent over $12 million already ( and brought in about $30 million )………..it never ends……

Healthcare reform IS good for the economy……..

These days a lot of Republicans are arguing that they are scared that Obama is tinkering with Healthcare…….that Healthcare reform will cost too much money…….well, the way I rememeber it….For the last ten years the country, and Congress in particular, has been too scared to mess with Healthcare, even though EVERYONE knows that the costs in that field are eating into more, and more, of the entire United States budget……I give props to President Obama for going at something that Congress and the Republicans (and most Democrats also ) have been running away from . Working to craft a program that gives more American’s medical coverage, and that begins to control costs.

AIG and Breakstone both post profits……..

AIG, the ailing insurance giant that you and me bailed out, along with Warren Buffets’ Breakstone Corp have posted profits, folks……..with the market coming back, expect more of this…..just one thing…..We all expect the government to make its money and interest back from the AIG’s and banks that got loans………
