commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

President Obama will give his answers on the Afghan troop moves by the end of next week….

According to the Cable /Foreign-Policy site notifications are being made to the other foreign stakholderrs in the action, and NATO…in addition, National Security Advisor Jim Jones, and Defense Secretary Robert Gates have begun to advise their people of how things will go…..There is no mention of the State Department in the piece…but I’m sure that Secretary of State Clinton is doing her bit in the process….

It appears that all the players will be in Washington by the end of the week if  President Obama (the nation’s Commander-in Chief ) wants to do the rollout then……

Note:…..I’m waiting for the leaks…….

Update:…..I’m off by a week…the president, it is now reported, will atend a service at Fort Hood on Wednesday, then fly to Toyko for a week long Asian trip…..The target date for the annoucemenet is around, Monday November 16th, when he returns to DC…..stay tuned……

Open tread……and some comments…..

First of all ……we’re looking for some feed back and comments…even a quick Hello!

Second……I’m sorry but the New York Times story this morning made me laugh…I know the unemployment numbers are high…but the Government issues a 10.2% number…Wall Street doesn’t react…… and the Times pulls out  a 17.5% number?   Come on now?

Last weeks elections was about the candidates themselves and local issues….But the dem’s better keep their ears to the ground…winning the presidency is not enough….

If Bloomberg didn’t lose…close numbers are good enough…Finish your last term….and book….

Oh, yea…for the last 20 years or so…New York City has not had a democratic Mayor…what does that say?

The president isn’t getting any traction on his policy of talking international problems out….

Sooner, or later he has to make a decision on the troop levels…..everyone is waiting..the decision will not go away…

The Real Housewives of Atlanta…really don’t seem to be tight…at all

Jon and Kate Gosselin are a mess……in public…but Jon has got his ‘thing’ out…now he needs to settle down……with someone….

The GOP needs to find out what it wants to be…….

Passing legislation is about compromise…..and this Pesident wants a Healthcare bill….in the end Congress writes it,  and votes on it ….the President only signs the passed bill…..that’s all….
And finally……The NJ Giants are turning out to be a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT……where is the defense?
