Democrats doubt Barack Obama’s reelection chances [ Dems Ak if Hillary would have been better ]

August 10, 2011 Leave a comment

President Barack Obama is facing mounting doubts within his own party about his re-election prospects, with fellow Democrats beginning to ask if Hillary Clinton would have made a better president.

Mr Obama’s capitulation to Republicans in the recent tussle over deficit reduction is being seen as the lowest point of his presidency and the latest in a series of blows to the liberal agenda.

Faced with the staunch opposition of the Tea Party contingent of the Republican Party, he agreed to widespread cuts in government spending without winning any revenue increases in exchange.

Finding it hard to defend his often listless and repetitive performances, Democratic strategists and commentators are privately agreeing with Republicans and comparing Mr Obama to Jimmy Carter, another Democrat who remains the post-war benchmark for a failed president.

“He is a do-gooder at heart,” said Morris Reid, a Washington consultant and former Clinton official. “He thinks everyone has the same agenda to do the right thing, but other people don’t have the same agenda. Their agenda is to score points and get their party re-elected.

“This is the downside of him not being terribly political like Bill Clinton was. Bill Clinton woke up every day relishing this kind of fight, and Hillary is just a tougher person. The Clintons are much more combative, they are always ready to go to Defcon 1 (‘war is imminent’ state).”

Gunny G’s Marines History and Traditions: Lessons

August 10, 2011 Leave a comment

A friend of mine was there, Commander Robert Menard of the U.S. Navy. When the question of, “Why did you not invade” was asked, he would never forget the answer.

A senior member of the Japanese Navy looked at the man who had raised the issue with an expression on his face like someone who had caught another person asking a trick question. Yes, the Japanese commander replied, his people did indeed have intelligence on the matter and had explored the question in depth. They had determined that more than half of American homes contained firearms.

They had been shocked to discover that the United States still had state and national championships of military rifle shooting for private citizens. They had invaded disarmed countries like China with smooth success and had worked out the scenarios of what the death toll to them and their kind would have been like if the victims had been able to shoot back.

Menard never forgot what the Japanese navy man told him then, and I in turn will not be able to forget them: “We were not fools, to step into such quicksand.”

His research had been valid. So had his assessment. Perhaps he had read the account of one of his own lieutenants, Yoshio Shiga, speaking in awe of the courage of the American Marine who had stood on the ground and fired his Colt .45 automatic in the face of the oncoming Japanese fighter plane and its blazing machine guns.

Lt. Shiga had seen it in our servicemen, and in his last instant on earth Shigenori Nishikaichi had seen it in the face of the American civilian who killed him with his bare hands.

It is sad that, only 60 years after the sacrifices of so many at Pearl Harbor, a generation of Americans has arisen that wishes to disarm its brothers. Sad. And contrary to the documented lessons of something that, in perspective, is very recent history.”

Obama under fire for giving Hurt Locker director access to Navy SEALs to make Bin Laden film

August 10, 2011 Leave a comment

Hollywood is looking to shed light on the top-secret commandos who killed the world’s top terrorist, and the White House is helping, one congressman says.

The U.S.’s top brass is reportedly giving filmmakers the inside scoop to all things Navy SEAL for a movie about the squad who took out Osama bin Laden.

Rep Peter King has called for a probe into the access allowed to filmmakers for a movie about SEAL Team 6

The New York Times reported this week that military officers were shocked when writer Mark Boal showed up at a CIA ceremony in honour of Team 6.

Boal, along with director Kathryn Bigelow, wrote the Oscar-winning Iraq war drama The Hurt Locker, and is now scribing a Navy SEAL film.

For the project, Mr Boal and Miss Bigelow reportedly have been granted unique access to the inner workings of the Pentagon.

Rep. Peter King, Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, said letting Hollywood in on sensitive information like SEAL Team 6 may cost lives.

In addition, the lawmaker contends that granting such privileges could tarnish the war on terror and other disastrous consequences.

Mr King asked the inspectors general of the CIA and the Department of Defense to determine what consultations occurred in the White House about providing Hollywood with access to covert military operators and clandestine CIA officers.

In a letter dated August 10, Mr King demanded an investigation into ‘ongoing leaks of classified information regarding sensitive military operations.’

Prison Planet.com » Sony Hosted Obama Fundraiser, Releasing Bin Laden Movie Before Election

August 10, 2011 Leave a comment

There may be an overtly political reason that moviegoers will be seeing the story of the Osama bin Laden raid just before they vote for president. Sony Pictures, the company distributing next year’s film, hosted a fundraiser for Barack Obama on their studio’s premises in California last April.

So far, Sony is the only major studio to hold a political fundraiser this cycle. According to Deadline Hollywood, Sony will release the bin Laden movie, directed by Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, on October 12, 2012–less than a month before the presidential election.

“The eyebrow does go up when you see the release date,” says Douglas Urbanski, a Hollywood producer and conservative radio talk show host.
