    Like the ATF nominee, I don’t see EPA getting confirmed, unless Harry goes nuclear?
    And for some reason, he goes right to the edge and stops short.

    Andrea Mitchell on evening news finding a way to bash PBO re. Egypt coup. Said U.S. stayed too long with Morsi, as they did with Mubarak, overlooking assaults on democracy there as long as Morsi agreed to talks with Israel, said U.S. on wrong side of history—-again. No matter the subject, there is always a way for the usuals in the media to make it “Obama’s fault”—-a way to spin it negatively for this administration—–always. Tiresome.

      that’s exactly what she’s paid to do, along with providing cover for the republicans and their lies. if she didn’t do that, she’d be fired, but in mrs. greenspan’s case, that job also matches her personal belief’s too, so it’s natural for her.

      Mrs Greenspan must not realize PBO does not have the power to tell elected officials in other countries to resign from office.

      Morsi was elected President on June 30, 2012.

      One year is staying too long?

      Not trying to overthrow an elected President of another country is somehow wrong.

      Unfortunately she’s a “star” at MSNBC, but she’s so annoying and dated. She should bow out now, just like the person she reminds of is doing this year (Baba Wawa — for those old enough to remember the original SNL — Gilda Radner, who left this world too soon).

    • July 3, 2013 at 6:56 pm

      I know this book takes no prisoners, but I was pleased their lead was going after Mrs. Greenspan….can’t wait to find out to what level all these media hacks are two-faced, hypocritical, jackals. And it’s coming from one of their own….gonna leave some stains.

        I won’t be reading it as I stated on the last thread as it is reported that the author of the book opines that Joe B. appears to suffer from “insecure manhood” and lambasts the administration as hypocrites. I’m not that interested in hearing some beltway insider twit sneer and gossip about other insider twits and idiots that everyone else already knows are idiots, along with the usual Obama smear campaign. I’d rather send the money to OFA.

    So it’s a TOD laugh-in, eh.

    The banker saw his old friend Tom, an eighty-year old rancher, in town.

    Tom had lost his wife a year or so before and rumor had it that he was marrying a ‘mail order’ bride.

    Being a good friend, the banker asked Tom if the rumor was true.

    Tom assured him that it was. The banker then asked Tom the age of his new bride to be.

    Tom proudly said, ‘She’ll be twenty-one in November.’

    Now the banker, being the wise man that he was, could see that the sexual appetite of a young woman could not be satisfied by an eighty-year- old man.

    Wanting his old friend’s remaining years to be happy the banker tactfully suggested that Tom should consider getting a hired hand to help him out on the ranch, knowing nature would take its own course.

    Tom thought this was a good idea and said he would look for one that afternoon.

    About four months later, the banker ran into Tom in town again.

    ‘How’s the new wife?’, asked the banker.

    Tom proudly said, ‘Good – she’s pregnant.’

    The banker, happy that his sage advice had worked out, continued, ‘And how’s the hired hand?’

    Without hesitating, Tom said, ‘She’s pregnant too.’

    Don’t ever underestimate “old guys”.

    PBO statement on Egypt

    Office of the Press Secretary
    July 3, 2013

    Statement by President Barack Obama on Egypt

    As I have said since the Egyptian Revolution, the United States supports a set of core principles, including opposition to violence, protection of universal human rights, and reform that meets the legitimate aspirations of the people. The United States does not support particular individuals or political parties, but we are committed to the democratic process and respect for the rule of law. Since the current unrest in Egypt began, we have called on all parties to work together to address the legitimate grievances of the Egyptian people, in accordance with the democratic process, and without recourse to violence or the use of force.
    The United States is monitoring the very fluid situation in Egypt, and we believe that ultimately the future of Egypt can only be determined by the Egyptian people. Nevertheless, we are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsy and suspend the Egyptian constitution. I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsy and his supporters. Given today’s developments, I have also directed the relevant departments and agencies to review the implications under U.S. law for our assistance to the Government of Egypt.

    The United States continues to believe firmly that the best foundation for lasting stability in Egypt is a democratic political order with participation from all sides and all political parties —secular and religious, civilian and military. During this uncertain period, we expect the military to ensure that the rights of all Egyptian men and women are protected, including the right to peaceful assembly, due process, and free and fair trials in civilian courts. Moreover, the goal of any political process should be a government that respects the rights of all people, majority and minority; that institutionalizes the checks and balances upon which democracy depends; and that places the interests of the people above party or faction. The voices of all those who have protested peacefully must be heard – including those who welcomed today’s developments, and those who have supported President Morsy. In the interim, I urge all sides to avoid violence and come together to ensure the lasting restoration of Egypt’s democracy.

    No transition to democracy comes without difficulty, but in the end it must stay true to the will of the people. An honest, capable and representative government is what ordinary Egyptians seek and what they deserve. The longstanding partnership between the United States and Egypt is based on shared interests and values, and we will continue to work with the Egyptian people to ensure that Egypt’s transition to democracy succeeds.

      Excellent statement. He clearly isn’t happy with the military arbitrarily taking Morsi out of office, and he’s calling for the military to get out of the way – but leaving the future of that country in the hands of the Egyptians. It’s a powder keg.

      Once again I totally agree with my President.. I really hope the people of Egypt work this out peacefully and quickly. I worry when any military ‘takes over’.

      All of these rapid changes in various countries during the PBO’s tenure makes me think of the billy Joel song “We didn’t start the fire” or in the words of Edna St. Vincent Millay: “What fresh hell is this?” We do live in interesting times.

    • 50 theo67
      July 3, 2013 at 7:12 pm

      The truth is that it’s always been pretty wild and volatile. There’s a lot at stake, and power does that to people. In the past, we weren’t able to communicate as quickly and effectively, and a lot of the messaging was tightly controlled. Look at what happened in Rwanda or Bosnia. Look at the history of South Africa and Zimbabwe and the US, when people were legally subjugated and had little recourse. Now, there are more voices to get the message out and we’re more engaged, thanks to twitter. But, it’s not necessarily worse than before.

    • July 3, 2013 at 7:25 pm

      That’s usually what happens when the existing power structure is being challenged. It’s not a bad thing.

    Hi TOD,

    just dropping in for some frivolity and snark. The Clintons are having a big to do honoring designer Oscar de la Renta. Hillary and fashion? Really? Even she admits that she is challenged in this area. I’ll bet that de la Renta would trade in all in for MO to wear one of his designs. Will never happen, not only because he dissed her, but because he is so yesterday and FLOTUS is about the fresh, the modern, and the future.

      It’s really true that PBO is “damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t.”

      What kind of criticism is this? And what are they criticizing?

      Reposting from upthread, since this media “concern” is another way of saying POTUS should be a robot, just like their hero, R-money 598A.

      Tweety puts the ‘gas’ in gasbag. Him and his ilk in the media sit on their perches in air conditioned studios and criticize every move President Obama makes. THEY have all the answers. They know exactly what President Obama should have done, how he should have done, when he should have done, and what words he should have used. They always have several negatives critiques teed up so no mater what President Obama does they are ready to say oh no no no he did it all wrong. He should have done (fill in the blank).

    • July 3, 2013 at 7:53 pm

      I don’t even know what the hell this means. And I don’t trust the media to report the info accurately. The media is on a mission to elevate Snowden and make him seem “bigger” and “badder” and “more popular” than PBO. They tried that crap with Sarah Palin in 2009-2010. It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now.

    Sorry, CNN, you suck. Period. Al J has been carrying exemplary coverage of what’s going on in Egypt! Damn, if it didn’t make MSNBC do better coverage. Joy Reid did a good job. I feel for Trayvon’s parents, but I was geting weary of the 24/7 MSNBC coverage. I know the parent company is being sued by Simmerman, a suit that’s not going anywhere. But there’s a whole world outside of that trial. A segment, OK. Hours & hours, not.
