Michael Steele is as Harsh as the Taliban

According to Barbara Boxer the head of the GOP, Michael Steele, is as harsh in his statements about the President’s Nobel Prize win as the Taliban and Hamas.  

From Michael Steele:

“The real question Americans are asking is ‘what has President Obama accomplished?’  It is unfortunate that the President’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights.”

So is she really comparing the GOP to terrorist organizations?  Nice.  At least the commentators of the liberal MSNBC actually asked her to clarify her position.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Money For Hamas?

Hillary Clinton in Gaza

Hillary Clinton

In this time of an advanced spending agenda by the Obama administration, it seems that we’ve exported the spendulus mentality.   Our esteemed Sec. of State has announced a pledge of 900 million to Hamas, er. sorry, Palestine.  The funds are meant to rebuild the Gaza area that has been bombed in recent skirmishes. 

I guess my first question is… what?????  Don’t we have some kind of crises at home?     

I know, some of you are yelling at the screen, “How about all those people injured in the fighting living in bombed out homes.”  Well, I truly feel sorry for the victims.  Really, I do.  I also feel sorry for the Israelis who have also died and endured repeated bombings by Hamas.  It’s a two way street in that fight from what I see.  My beef is that I don’t want to pay for rebuilding anything in that region – on either side.  (That includes Iraq)   Can’t they take responsibility for their own problems and rebuild it themselves?  Just a thought.

$900 million is a lot of money.  Is it money well spent?  I guess you can be the judge.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
