Hillary on Afghanistan: “if we simply leave and allow the Taliban to return, al-Qaeda “would come right back, and we’d be worse off in Pakistan.” & Sens. Kyl & Levin on Afghanistan strategy & FOX Panel Plus…

First some much needed humor:

Mashup by FleetwoodFactor

In this Parade piece on 24 hours with Hillary, an important insight into her position on our role in Afghanistan and the dangers posed by the Taliban:

(…)We sit at a table away from the crowd. Clinton has a hard edge to her foreign-policy views and generally positions herself to the right of her colleagues in national security. Yet she staunchly defends President Obama and his prerogatives. While she’s “not satisfied that we’re executing as we should” in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and elsewhere, she nonetheless argues for continuing “present directions” in most areas.

When I question whether the U.S. really has vital interests in Afghanistan, she shoots back that if we simply leave and allow the Taliban to return, al-Qaeda “would come right back, and we’d be worse off in Pakistan. She continues: “Despite how hard Afghanistan is, we have to make progress. And what we do and what happens in Afghanistan will affect Pakistan…

As we have noted here before, the British press has reported that Hillary and Gates while keeping their positions close to the vest, want increased troop levels in Afghanistan, it is essential. The mumbling of Juan Williams on the FOX Panel Plus (clip below) wondering why we should stay in Afghanistan is just ridiculous.

When Dana Perrino, former GWB press secretary points out the important progress we have made in security that allows women to participate in the Afghan society and educate themselves (which will lead to their economic freedom and an amazing economic renaissance for Afghanistan, we see this all over the world when women are able to educate themselves and enter the economy-and Hillary Clinton is very focused on this as well) Juan Williams actually says ‘it is nice for women to rule the world but that’s no reason to be in Afghanistan” He thinks this is funny. Incredible.

Steve Wynn on Obama Stimulus and lack of Job Creation…

He CRUSHED Granholm and her pro Admin. happy green talk, as MI slides into an abyss of unemployment..

Full roundtable discussion below, Granholm apparently misses the fact that since the Min Wage increase teen UE has hit 52%, IMO when they add on these healthcare fees hiring will stop completely.

I didn’t think we would be the ones living through the proof that Keynsian policy in the face of a collapsed consumer combined with excess government ENTITLEMENT programs is a map to failure, the econOmists who believe it worked always use FDR as proof, but WWII is the event that drove that growth, it was not organic, as we are seeing as we live through Round Deux (later to be called Round D’UH!) under FDR-wannabes Team TOTUS without the war…(technically with A war, but not the will to actually try to WIN a war so it does not give GDP boost from defense spending)

And Zandi may be a nice guy, but he is tied to the Stimulus by his testimony to Congress pushing it and his ‘advice’ to Team TOTUS on it, when he says it is a success he is talking his book, period. We are spending a TRILLION dollars and there is NO JOB GROWTH, that is a FAILURE by any sane measurement of success.

TOTUS, voting Present since 1995

Voting present since 1995 or whatever year he took an office..here is the FOX panel discussing what TOTUS needs to do in Wednesday’s speech.

Based on all the president’s  spinmeisters appearances today and the latest journOlist ledes, it would seem TOTUS will CONTINUE to vote present on a public option in his latest ‘biggest speech evah’ this Wednesday, sounding like he is for it, but not backing away from Olympia Snowe’s pet triggers…IOW he won’t lay a veto on the line and take a stand either way, leadership? Where is the passion? OPAQUE they name is TOTUS …

While Gibby is tossing the public option unda da bus, TOTUS ‘official speak’ is he is gonna be Tuff but not on his neoprog libs according to Politico, they said WE DON’T TRIANGULATE IN THIS WH, IOW he will not go moderate which is how he ran..lines in the sand huh? step over it baby, don’t let this TOTUS take our economy off a cliff!….

…2) He will not confront or scold the left. “This is a case for bold action, not a stick in the eye to our supporters,” said an official involved in speech preparation. “That’s not how President Obama thinks. The politics of triangulation don’t live in this White House.”..

Face it neo progs your guy is voting PRESENT…

TOTUS is lifting his themes from Bugs Bunny again I’m a tellin ya! This time it is Yosemite Sam with the ‘I dare ya to cross that line’
