Party Crashers at the….White House!…..

Tareq and Michaele Salahi pulled off a Vince Vaugh this week…they crashed a party….one even better than a wedding…

They got in to see and meet the President of the United States, they got their picture taken with the Vice President, and they also got to meet the Prime Minister of India…..at  1600 Pennsylvania Ave Washington, D.C…….the White House….it was an inside job….

Somebody in the Secret Service is gonna be doing midnights in the coldest part of Alaska..and the Service does have egg on its face….because the two walked right in the place with everyone else…..I’m glad it wasn’t like in the movies where people get black mailed to do crazy things…..

Maybe they got thru because they where two attractive looking, white people dressed to the nines…..they couldn’t be terrorist’s could they?

Well they get the last laugh….they posted the pictures of their adventure on Facebook….

The Commander-in-Chief will announce his troop request at West Point, on Tuesday…..

President Obama will travel to West Point, The U.S. Army’s Military Academy to announce that he will deploying up to 35,000 more U.S. and NATO troops (he’s asking NATO for 10,000) principally to deploy to the southern region of Afghanistan over the next 9 months….This move will be the president’s biggest decision since tackling the economy when he walked in the door of the presidency….

He has also put himself out by declaring to the media during a presser with the Indian Prime Minister ……”I’ve also indicated that after eight years — some of those years in which we did not have, I think, either the resources or the strategy to get the job done — it is my intention to finish the job,”

The president had to take more time in his decision to give the military time to put in an exit option, which U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan, Eikenberry ( a retired Lt. General, who serverd in-country) lobbied for….

Finally, Obama is keenly aware that a major criticism has been the corruption, functionality and unsuitableness of Harmid Karzai’s government…..this a problem that

Will be watched by the State department under Hillary Clinton and Ambassador Eikenberry closely….But will be the basis for any progress….

Because in the end the object will be to have the Afghan’s take over…..Which a lot of us doubt will ever happen….

Lou Dobbs is doing a 180 on immigration……

I simply don’t believe it!..Okay, I really do…..After complaining about immigration for the last  year….The former CNN anchor (whose wife is Mexican/American) has suddenly changed his mind and thinks immigration from south of the border is okay…..pleaseeee!

This was him last Friday….

“Whatever you have thought of me in the past, I can tell you right now that I am one of your greatest friends and I mean for us to work together,” he said in a live interview with Telemundo’s Maria Celeste. “I hope that will begin with Maria and me and Telemundo and other media organizations and others in this national debate that we should turn into a solution rather than a continuing debate and factional contest.”

Mr. Dobbs twice mentioned a possible legalization plan for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., saying at one point that “we need the ability to legalize illegal immigrants under certain conditions.”

He’s gonna run for something, because he sounds like the politicians that he rallied about every night on CNN to get some ratings…..

He has indicated that he might run for the senate in New Jersey or…the presidency….

Let me say one thing..if you’re looking to be a third-party guy…forget it…you’re just spinning your wheels….the last guy to do that, in recent time s, is ‘Money Mike’ Bloomberg, and he bought the office, for the third time (almost didn’t make it , though)…

Politics is a funny business, sometimes, eh?

Has Rudy Giulianai pulled another fast one?

The New York Observer, observes that,  nobody has heard a thing from Rudy Giulianai since the New York Dailky News spread a rumour that he would run for the Senate…..I did point out that on the day after the story first ran, that the Daily News pulled back to a ‘if’ status on the story…….as the Obaserver points out, we’ve been down this road of  indecession…many times…..

We’ll just have to wait and see, huh?

Is this the type of person you would want for your senator?
