    From Gov Mary of OK……a flip flop to common sense?

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/investigators-issuing-report-oklahoma-execution-25241539

    New procedures to improve Oklahoma’s execution process must be implemented before the state resumes putting prisoners to death by lethal injection, Gov. Mary Fallin said after investigators presented their findings about an April case in which the inmate writhed and moaned on the gurney.

    In its report released Thursday about the troubled April 29 execution of Clayton Lockett — who was declared dead 43 minutes after his execution began — the state Department of Public Safety made 11 recommendations include more training for medical personnel and having additional supplies of lethal drugs and equipment on hand.

    Corrections Director Robert Patton is reviewing the guidelines, Fallin said, adding that she expects the department to implement them before executions resume. Three executions have been set for November and December, the first on Nov. 13.

    To any of you who can stomach UpChuck’s interview with PBO on Sunday, my hat is off to you. I just read his sneering ‘promo’ about it and there is nothing that could make me watch him.

    I’ll get the play-by-play at TOD.

    Democratic Presidents Bring It: Obama Shatters Clinton’s Record For Private Sector Job Growth

    The Department of Labor announced Friday that the economy added 142,000 jobs and the unemployment rate dropped (little change) to 6.1%. The private sector has added 10 million jobs over 54 straight months, with private businesses adding 134,000 jobs in this report. President Obama has shattered Bill Clinton’s previous record of 51 consecutive months of private sector job growth. This is an extension of the longest streak on record for private sector job growth and it happened under a Democratic President.

        That this would be the ideal place for us (me and him) to get married….//

        Okay jokes aside, this is one breathtaking pic of our President. He’s thinking of FLOTUS, his girls, Mom-in-law, Bo, Sunny, his country (US), Wales, planet Earth, the wonders of Stonehenge, etc. Mother Nature loves our/her President…

      I’m so happy for him. He’s worked like crazy all week, and this is a little reward. To be able to see such a beautiful, strange, impressive place. He loves history and no doubt he appreciates this visit tremendously.

    Report: McConnell Campaign Manager Faced Subpoenas Before Resigning

    Mitch McConnell’s campaign manager, Jesse Benton, was facing subpoenas for emails and financial transactions before he resigned last Friday from the helm of Senate Republican leader’s reelection effort.

    The Center For Responsive Politics reported on Thursday that one of two grand juries investigating an Iowa bribery scandal in the 2012 presidential election had in late July subpoenaed documents from “at least seventeen individuals, including [Ron] Paul, [Michele] Bachmann and Jesse Benton.”

        This was a good briefing, LH. It’s amazing how Russia keeps on singing its old tune about the duly elected government of Ukraine being neo-Nazis when it is Russia itself that has invaded Ukraine’s territory and caused untold hardship to its people. Who does Putin think he’s kidding?

    I’m so glad he got to visit Stonehenge! It is indeed, spectacular, impressive….any adjective you can think of. It’s one of those places you’ve seen pictures of all your life, so think it won’t be impressive when you see it, but wow! I was struck totally silent when I walked up to it. I’ve seen it in sun and in rain, and it is impressive either way. Really brooding in the rain. One of those places where you FEEL the people who have gone before.

    It is absolutely in character that PBO chose to visit Stonehenge. POTUS is curious and respectful of other times and other civilizations.

    Neo-Cons, not so much.

    From everything I’ve read, this was a very productive visit by the President, both in Estonia and at the NATO summit in Wales. As is always the case, the most important results will be long term, something the MSM and beltway bobbleheads still don’t understand. He always goes for the long goal. We will be seeing many results of his work and policies years from now…..Fortunately, he has totally changed the world image of the U.S. and our presidency, which GWB so ruthlessly and carelessly destroyed.

    Always comfortable when he visits other countries, and very proud. He has totally reset our entire international way of operating, and the world will be better for his term in office.

    This is apparently “President Obama on a walk about near Stonehenge.”

    Even ABC wants to use it!
