    I was going to post this link earlier and forgot; thanks for doing it, MFG.

    In all the uprorar over Iran and North Korea, I think it is dangerous to lose sight of the fact that the most dangerous threat to the world in terms of nuclear weapons in the hands of Islamic terrorists is Pakistan. If the government falls to the Taliban, as it probably will, we’ve got a major crisis.

    Given all this, aren’t you all glad we have the marxist in charge?

    One of the best analysis of Obama’s presidency yet, by Barone of course. H/T Instapundit

    Obama likes to execute long-range strategies but suffers from cognitive dissonance when new facts render them inappropriate. His 2008 campaign was a largely flawless execution of a smart strategy, but he was flummoxed momentarily when the Russians invaded Georgia and when John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. On domestic policy, he has been executing his long-range strategy of vastly expanding government, but may be encountering problems as voters show unease at huge increases on spending.

    Dodge facts, skip details, govern Chicago-style

    Obama is holding another presser, this time oin prescription drugs. He says he has lowered prescription drug cost for seniors and his plan covers more people, etc. Did he negotiate with somebody for this?

    Apparantly, over the weekend, he was able to deal with Iranian problem, come up with a prescription drug overhaul and have his ice cream, too.

    Read that janzam, the killer sentence is of course “Obama likes to execute long-range strategies but suffers from cognitive dissonance when new facts render them inappropriate.”. Which leads me to believe that O’s strategies are dreams. Any planner I know builds up a body of short-midrange facts on the ground before they build any strategy. Otherwise your strategy is destroyed on the first nonfitting event that shows up. Ka-Boom!

    CT — the ice cream WAS the prescription.

    Talking about drugs, it looks like the Mayo clinic has come up with a drug regimen that destroys aggressive prostrate cancer. Already had two patients on the therapy and they are in remission.

    Very on point. That is what is going on with the Iran situation. Obama was set on negotiating with Iamadinnerjacket and can’t adjust.

    One has to wonder how much Mayo spent on R&D. They are not likely to recoup the costs if Obama has any say.

    Article did not say, CT. They just mentioned using two existing drugs in combination in the trial. Course the drugs probably cost $5k per application….

    What are you talking about Chek? Obama is adjusting fine.

    No matter the outcome in Iran, Obama will be seen as being the only sitting president who was able to ‘take it to’ dinnerjacket–even though he had nothing to do with it. Hell, we all know he secretly wanted them to fail.

    This is good. Obama as sold the country’s assets to anybody who would buy them and now our economy isn’t rated on how well the US is doing, but how well others say we are doing.

    Just a year ago, we could care less what the IMF said.

    There also are predictions that unemployment will continue to increase for another 12 months. That will just about atke us to the 2010 elections.

    If unemployment is 11% a year from now the Communists are toast; we probably win back the House

    BlueFraud Democrats will be running away from Captain Bullshit’s proposals very soon now…

    the problem is there are no jobs being created because everyone is waiting to see what the cost of doing business will be if Obama gets his communist agenda approved.

    If Obama is stopped in congress in 2010, there will still be a problem of how to move forward. Of course the fact that communism will have been stopped cold might encourage people to hire.

    I think it will be 10 years before the unemployment rate is 5% again, if it ever will be. It might not ever be.

    Why are several states going bust? They spend too much:

    In 2002 total combined state revenue was $1.097 trillion…. In 2007 this figure had risen to almost $2 trillion. That’s an 81 percent increase, at a time when prices plus population increased 19 percent.

    Hit & run — Workaday media bias and state budget crises

    “I think it is dangerous to lose sight of the fact that the most dangerous threat to the world in terms of nuclear weapons in the hands of Islamic terrorists is Pakistan.

    At the moment yes I would rank that the highest in that area of risk.
