Obama takes it on the chin from the late night comics………….

One of the things that happens to you when you become the President of the United States, is attention…..From all sorts of people…including late night hosts, and shows……..

Well, Barack Obama IS the 44th United States President, so he’s right in there…..While everyone….these guys included, went easy (if at all ) on him during his historic run, and election to become president…the wraps have begun to come off now……and he’s become fair game……

Whether its about the Nobel Peace Prize (what did he do? , they joke)….Or his laid back-ness (What has he done?)…he is gonna get taken to task, and made fun of…..

Get used to it Mr. President…it means you have arrived…and you have……

FOX News as an arm of the Republican Party?

Anita Dunne, The White House Communication Director pushes back at FOX News and its ideological slant……..She talks to CNN’s Howie Kurtz…and she’s adamant that the White House looks at Fox News Channel as an adversary (and attached to the GOP) ……She  goes right back at Kurtz on the air…giving issues, situations and times that FOX has (in her mind)  not been truthful in reports on the President, his policies, and his administration…….

When pressed, Dunne advises that the president has, and will continue to appear on the channel…but the President, and Dunne are careful in who they will deal with over at FOX… and always considers that an appearance there is tantamount to sleeping with the enemy….

Dunne does speak highly of several people at the channel  including Major Garret, the FOX Congressional reporter, and separates individuals from the channel, in general……

Obama on Don't Ask ….Don't Tell…..Don't wait people…it's gonna be a while…..

In order to get elected you’ve got to promise different groups of people different things……President Obama is no different on this…He’s a politician…….

The media and gay americans have been waiting for the President to for-fill his pledge to abolish the gay policy of the Defense Department…Don\’t ask..Don\’t tell……mindful of the fact that last two term democratic president got into a huge fight with military at the start of his first term, on the  issue…..and that he never had the things the same with the military…President Obama isn’t in any hurry to make the same mistake……so….he’s gonna continue to say he\’s gonna get rid of the policy…but with a whole lot of things going on with the military in the Middle East and his reliance on the troops…..one could understand that DADT is something he might not want to deal with………

Pakistan…………

Any war planning for Afghanistan is going to have to include Pakistan, also….I know the White House knows, and is acting on this….But most Americans probably have no concept of this…..

I see the United States as successful in Iraq because of the surge, and the fact that the Iraqi’s themselves, are at least trying to get their act together…..I see the major problem for President Obama in Afghanistan as the fact there is hardly any infrastructure, and army…I see the problem in Pakistan as the bad guys trying to do the same thing they tried in Iraq…….terrorizing the population…..

With the US pushing the bad guys east into Afghanistan, and further into Pakistan (some where already there moving back and forth between Afghanistan and Pakistan), things are already getting hot in Pakistan……yesterdays brazen attack on the military headquarters, was for psychological effect…..And the hostages have been quickly rescued…and this was a warning to that countries peoples, that siding with the US, and it Allies, will bring trouble down on them….

With all this mind, do not forget that Pakistan has nukes……they are under the control of the army….But they remain there nevertheless…..

President Obama …the CIC, must take all of this into account………but we’re not finished

There is India to consider……

Once the bad guys get a hard time in Pakistan..they they will be running to the border of India….another country with nukes, and Pakistan’s arch problem elder…..The two countries have had a checkered history , and have been flexing at each other for long while…..all this the United States must  consider when dealing with the problems, and solutions presented by Gen. Stanley McChrystal for the area……

No wonder it’s taking such a long time……

Congress balks at an addition 700 miles of border fence between Mexico and the United States……

By voting down an amendment by Senator Jim DeMint (R.SC), whose state doesn’t even sit on the border….to construct an additional 700 miles of high fencing in place of 300 miles of low rise fencing, and barriers…Congress has come to it senses, and backed away from the fierce right wing rhetoric,  and threats of action, that flowed last year about illegal immigration……seven border state congressmen asked, and received their wish, to have the amendment (and additional fencing) dropped from consideration by Congress.

In addition to other issues……the governments move to take land from private citizen’s (over 200) to construct  fencing and barrier’s has been a huge headache for the border states………Congress has asked the Homeland Security Department to consider other means of patrolling and securing the border……
