commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The Oil Spill sucks all the political Air out of Obama's room….

In a bow to the ongoing Gulf Oil caper …..

The President isn’t getting much time to talk about anything else…

The media has shut down most of the other big stories as it hammers the Administration….

American’s don’t really have much patience these days…

They have to be entertained…..

Texting, while driving….

Kids parked in front of an interactive computer and such…..

I know Obama has to be getting frustrated…..

Until BP gets this taken care off…..

Obama can’t really leave the country…..

And can’t really talk about anything else….

Ain’t it fun being President?

The president’s experience Wednesday drove home the unwelcome point: Appearing in Pittsburgh for a speech at Carnegie Mellon University that was designed to focus on the economy, Obama found himself compelled to turn again to the growing disaster.

“The catastrophe unfolding in the gulf right now may prove to be a result of human error, or corporations taking dangerous shortcuts that compromised safety,” Obama said. “But we have to acknowledge that there are inherent risks to drilling four miles beneath the surface of the Earth, risks that are bound to increase the harder oil extraction becomes.”

In another sign that the oil spill has upended the White House agenda and posed new political risks for both Obama and congressional Democrats, the president may delay or cancel a visit to Indonesia and Australia to keep his focus on the gulf.

Seven days a week, the White House takes part in rounds of conference calls about the spill. Throughout the federal bureaucracy employees are setting aside other projects so they can concentrate on the disaster.

Cabinet secretaries are being deployed to the gulf to help deal with engineering problems. Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. was the latest to visit the region, warning Tuesday that criminal charges might be in the offing.

“Presidents are required to deal with situations as they arise,” said Geoff Garin, a Democratic pollster. “But this is certainly something that makes it much more difficult for the administration to execute its own game plan in terms of communicating an economic message.”

“His initiatives have been overtaken by current events,” Republican pollster Neil Newhouse said. “He’s no longer driving an agenda, he’s responding to it.  So unless he gets control, he’s going to have a tough time driving up his approval ratings, which is what Democrats across the country are hoping for.”…….

Another nominee outs the White House…….Romanoff offered 3 jobs before beating Mike Bennet in Colorado….

Andrew Romanoff talks to reporters.

[ The White House suggested jobs would be available to Andrew Romanoff if he dropped out of Senate race. ]

I guess there is no such thing as ‘off the record’ anymore…… Eh?

These offering are common in politics and is really a non-story…..

It does make the White House look stupid though….

Man…If I was Steve Israel …I’d feel stupid….

He could have taken on Kirsten Gillibrand in New York for the senate…won…and then ran against the White House like Romanoff and Sestak will do…..

Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff confirmed Wednesday that Jim Messina, President Barack Obama’s deputy chief of staff, suggested three administration jobs that would be available to him last September if he dropped his plans to run against U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, who had the support of the White House.

Romanoff said he informed the White House that he would stay in the race. The revelation comes days after the White House confirmed that Rep. Joe Sestak was approached about an unpaid position in the administration if he dropped his campaign against Sen. Arlen Specter. But in this case, Romanoff was offered paid positions in the administration, a clear difference from the Sestak case.

In a statement to the media, Romanoff attached an email from Messina – dated Sept. 11, 2009 – listing the three jobs, two at USAID and one as director of the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, with a page-long set of job descriptions.

Earlier, the White House had confirmed that administration officials had “conversations” last year with Romanoff about possible positions inside the administration. But the White House didn’t confirm which jobs were involved, or that Messina was the emissary to Romanoff.

Republicans have already seized on the Sestak job offer to call into question Obama’s claims to be a Washington reformer – seizing on the fact that it was chief of staff Rahm Emanuel who dispatched former President Bill Clinton

The New York State GOP Governor ticket looks like Lazio…..Who's Paladino?……Update….Lazio IS the nominee…..

0923_lazio3Steve Levy to Announce Gube

[ Lazio and Levy ]

Update….Rick Lazio IS the GOP nominee…Levy doesn’t make it……

Steve Levy looks likes he’s day late and dollar short in his conversion from a Democrat to a Republican to run for New York State Governor…

In his typical excentric fashion…he pissed off everyone and missed the boat…

As a matter of fact …..Levy running has actually HELP Rick Lazio secure the nomination…… it will probably turn out….Since Levy actual switch in parties technically doesn’t happen until next year…..

The man is ill at ease with the world…. it seems……

Lazio’s spot on a Republican primary ballot is all but assured, given the strong support he has among Republican committee members across the state. His loyalists point to Lazio’s early entrance in the race and his long-standing party credentials.

Levy, who has the support of Republican state Chairman Ed Cox, has two hurdles to clear today at the Republican state convention.

First, Levy must get the votes of 25 percent of the Republican committee delegates, weighted by the population of each county. If he gets that, then the Suffolk County executive needs 50 percent of the vote plus one to get on a primary ballot — since his enrollment from Democrat to Republican doesn’t take effect until next year.

Now who is Carl Paladino?

The party is likely to have a primary even if Levy fails to win a spot on the ballot, because Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino, who has a $10 million war chest, plans to petition his way on to the primary ballot — an option that Levy is denied because of his Democratic enrollment.

Paladino is also talking about running on a separate “Tea Party-oriented line.”

The Tea Party movement, as poorly defined as it may be, is having an impact here. Republicans with Tea Party leanings appear to be backing Levy as well as Paladino, who has positioned himself on the right wing of the GOP.

“We’re swaying more toward Levy because he’s fiscally conservative,” said Catherine Tenek, a Tea Party activist from Suffolk County who was furloughed last year by Levy from her job as a county heavy equipment operator. Despite the hit to her pocketbook, she said she respects Levy’s hard-line approach to government cost-cutting.

Lazio supporters are suspicious of Levy’s late-in-life switch from Democrat to Republican.

Was the Israeli Raid the IDF's 'Finest Moment'?

Not really……

According to former member of the Israel Defense Forces ( IDF) Marine Assault Team Shayetet 13 ……..

Victor Ostrovsky spoke to the Washington Post and outlines some countra-views to the Israel company line on the raid……

He points out that raid was poorly planed tactically….

Landing Special Ops soldiers  at night directly on boast that could have had weapons on board….

Poorly researched…

And that the IDF had have had people infiltrated on board..reporting to the inbound troops…..

Interesting piece …from a man who ran the IDF teams in the past……

The Israeli commando attack on a civilian flotilla was “so stupid it is stupefying,” says former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky.

Ostrovsky spent six years in the Israeli navy, rising to the rank of lieutenant commander before Mossad recruited him in 1982. He quit after four years and in the 1990s he wrote two highly critical, first-person books about the intelligence service.

Monday’s raid on a seaborne civilian aid mission to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, which left nine dead and about 75 wounded, was carried out by the Israeli navy’s commando unit, “Shayetet 13,” Ostrovsky said.

“It’s a fantastic unit. … It was not typical of Flotilla 13,” he said, using the English translation for Shayetet, which he called “one of the top units in the Israeli military.”

Members of the unit “have trained extensively for overtaking a ship,” he said. “However, their training was directed at overtaking a hijacked ship.”

Evidently the tactics weren’t adjusted for this mission.

“Mossad probably had more than one man on board” the ships, Ostrovsky said, secret agents who would have been giving Israeli mission planners an accurate picture of what was happening on the vessels.

Were their reports ignored?

“At this point,” says Jeffrey White, a former Middle East analyst at the Defense Intelligence Agency, “it is hard to say if this was a failure of collection, assessment or operational preparation.”

“My sense is that somewhere in the process from collection to conduct, the notion that this would be an action against moderate opposition became fixed ….”

“The mistakes were on every level,” said Ostrovsky, “from the order to forcefully board outside the territorial waters to the actual attack.”

Responsibility for the raid, which has provoked widespread condemnation and a diplomatic uproar, should be laid at the feet of “the shoot-from-the-hip prime minister,” Ostrovsky said — Binyamin Netanyahu, whom he blamed for two previous messy intelligence operations in Dubai and Jordan.

More……..

Meanwhile Israel has released almost all of the 700 people involved in the Gaza Relief Ship caper……

The whole Caper has been a HUGE POLITICAL  embarrassing screw-up…..On many different levels…..

The Israeli’s lost on this one……

With hundreds of activists already released from jails and en route to Ben Gurion International airport, Israel’s High Court of Justice heard a petition to reverse a cabinet decision to forgo criminal procedures against activists to allegedly attacked soldiers in clashes that left nine dead.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday rejected criticism of a deadly raid against a flotilla carrying aid to Gaza earlier this week, saying the blockade of the Palestinian territory is needed to prevent missile attacks against Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Israel’s cabinet on Tuesday had debated pressing charges against activists for allegedly attacking Israeli commandos during the confrontation, but decided instead to send them home, according to Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor.

The move to deport the activists was intended as a gesture to ease growing international isolation and a clash with Turkey over the violent incident, which Turkey said killed four Turkish nationals on the Turkish-owned ship Mavi Marama.

In a statement to the High Court, Israeli Attorney General Yehuda Weinshtein defended the expulsion by arguing “public, security and diplomatic interests prevail” over the need to pursue a criminal investigation.

Yukutiel Guzofky, an American-born law student who petitioned the court early Wednesday against the move, called the cabinet decision “outrageous.”

“Israel can’t say on the one hand say it has the right to use force to raid the boats, and then on the other hand release these people who they say have links to terrorist organizations,” he said.

Meanwhile, Israel continued to transfer the aid from the detained boats into the Gaza Strip, but alleged that Hamas was impeding the shipments, according the news website Ynet.
