Another Distraction or Just a Well Played Hand

Looks like someone has upset the apple cart that is moveon.org. hmm? It appears that another tentacle of the Obama tool belt is upset with their “One” and the choices that he is making. Well get used to being thrown under the bus. The Obama bus has a long highway with no itinerary. Did moveon.org forget this little miscue? http://www.theonion.com/content/news/obama_deletes_another_unread

Does anyone think that the announcement of Chelsea Clinton’s engagement is a distraction? Isn’t it interesting that a Clinton and a former Goldman Sach’s banker is to be wed?

What about the Navy Seals being degraded? Unfortunately we have laws in the military where they couldn’t kill him straight out!

What about the Dinner Crashers? Oh, but haven’t they made the circuit before?

What about “Climategate“? Oh, 31,000 Scientists know less than Mr. Obama? hmm?

How about the Terrorists’ NYC Trial? No reason to worry, the people of New York City are always well-informed? hmm?

What about the Health “Scare” Bill? With not just one, but a second sneaky Saturday late night vote?

What about a Prime Time speech on troops movement? 3 months plus of sitting on his hands and delivering 1/2 of requested to 3/4 of necessary per General McChrystal. hmm? Let’s see what he announces tonight while interrupting the little people glued to their TVs to watch the Charlie Brown Christmas special.

There is so much more, but it’s a poor performance that puts so much on a plate and accomplishes nothing: Another Obama diplomatic failure?

Reynolds: Troop Announcement Causes Concern

Reynolds: Troop announcement causes concern
Questions President’s choice to send fewer troops, delay in decision

CONWAY – Republican United States Senate candidate Col. Conrad Reynolds (U.S. Army, Ret.) issued the following statement in response to reports that President Barack Obama will send a reported 30,000 troops to Afghanistan several months after the request for additional troops was made and at less than the requested level.

“As the Commander-in-Chief, President Obama has determined his war plan for Afghanistan and the outcome will be his responsibility. I have serious questions as to the amount of troops he will send and the lengthy process which led him to this conclusion. I firmly believe this course of action could have been made months ago, but was delayed in order to keep the liberal base of his party in line to ensure forward movement of the health care bill.

Having served at CENTCOM and personally in Afghanistan, I know how hard it is for ground troops to operate in that environment. Additionally, having served in Iraq during the same period as Gen. McChrystal, I am aware of his leadership skills and reputation as a commander of troops. It is for these reasons that I am concerned with the President’s decision and with the length of time it took him to make it.

As Senator, I will ensure that the military and our veterans are not subject to any legislative delays or political gamesmanship. The men and women of America’s armed forces are not pawns, they are the guarantors of our freedoms and are due the appropriate respect.”

The Boycott Has Been Called Off The Gap, Banana Republic & Old Navy

Good for everyone!

AFA ends boycott of Gap, Old Navy – see the ad
Best Buy and Dick’s Sporting Goods make AFA’s “Naughty” list
November 30, 2009

Dear Bobbi,

Gap has heard you loud and clear. After thousands of phone calls, emails and petitions, Gap has just released a very “Merry Christmas” television commercial.

On November 28, Gap’s Old Navy division broadcast a television commercial featuring its “Supermodelquins” proudly cheering “Merry Christmas,” along with Christmas trees, lights and ornaments. View the commercial here.

As a result of Gap’s efforts, AFA is ending the Christmas boycott of the company and its Old Navy and Banana Republic stores. Thank you for getting involved!

Even FoxNews has recognized your efforts, saying you and your AFA have been very effective against retailers who won’t recognize Christmas in their advertising. See the video.

Again, thanks to your involvement, retailers are listening – and they are changing the way they do business!

In our ongoing effort to encourage other companies to recognize Christmas, your AFA has sent certified letters to Best Buy and Dick’s Sporting Goods, asking them to include “Christmas” in their advertising. You will find these two companies listed on AFA’s “Naughty or Nice” listing of retailers. We will let you know how they respond.

It is very important that you forward this alert to your friends and family members.
Sincerely,

Tim
