Posted By:JoniTx, 11/20/2012 3:03:43 AM

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia- President Barack Obama is sending Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to the Middle East in hopes that she can help mediate an end to bloody conflict in the region. A deputy White House national security adviser says Clinton will depart Tuesday from Cambodia, where she had accompanied Obama on a visit to Southeast Asia. Clinton will begin her Mideast diplomacy by meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. She also will meet with Palestinian officials in Ramallah before heading to Cairo to meet with leaders in Egypt.

Yeah, that´s the ticket. Send Mrs.Clinton. I am sure she can handle this assignment as well as she handled the lack of security in Banghazi. A Republican SOS would have already been fired and be facing criminal charges. Does everyone get an Out Of Jail Free card when they register as a democrat or are they just reserved for the truly elite.

He needs to check out her picture on Drudge this morning. She looks so bored. After all where is the value in what she does. Never mind four American patriots were murdered on her watch - she wants to retire with all her millions (maybe billions?) in Australia where she won´t be taxed to death.

She´ll offer another couple of billion to the mooooslim brotherhood and call it a day....

BTW -- she doesn´t have to testify -- her goose is cooked anyway you look at it....

P.S. Get your hair done and put on a frock -- you look awful....she´s an embarrassment to US all...

She is going to threaten Isreal with holding up the resupply of Iron Dome parts.

She will promise the Arabs more billions of dollars to pretend to stop firing rockets into Israel.

But I am looking forward to those photos of HRC dodging missiles as she waddles down the tarmac.

Notice that every time a crisis or incident occurs President Obama always delegates an individual to handle whatever has happened.

Then if that individual is shown by the liberal media to have succeeded, reality aside, Obama will then take credit, but if the individual cannot be shown to have succeeded, under the bus he or she goes.

So Obama sends one on the Arab (terrorist) best friend to tell Israel to just let their people die instead of defending themselves.
I like the idea already expressed that they should bulldoze Gaza to the bedrock and then declare it a free fire zone. Shoot anything that moves in it.
The Arabs cause their own problems; they let the wackjobs shoot rockets at the Israelis any do nothing to stop them and then act surprise when the IDF blows it up.

You just can’t fix stupid, you just need to eliminate it

She won´t be there to "mediate" anything, her mission is to demand of Israel that they stop the self defense measures because hamas is running scared. Barry promised to side with the muslims in any conflict but he has proven himself impotent in that job also. This mission has the makings of a huge failure for the 0bama administration but then, what else is new?

It´s real simple. It took a few days, but Hillary will tell Bibi that new arms supplies and parts which come from the US will not be forthcoming unless Israel conforms with a US-brokered ´peace.´ The Muslims will get billions in aid. End story.

I sincerely hope that the IDF has plenty of supplies put aside, that they can get parts/ammo through other channels and Bibi tells Hillary to go count every grain of sand in the Negev.

Hill will probably head straight to Israel because they are kind enough to not sneer in her face for being a female.
This time the Israelis have the upper hand because Hamas is stunned that they wasted most of the missiles and rockets.
Congress could have her flown back at any time to testify but why bother when they already know where the fault bucks stop.
Besides can barry really go home and face Michelle after his star struck shuffle with the lovely little lady in what he called Burma?

The vast majority of Americans must have the IQ of 80 or below. Every time the US has any sort of majory emergency or calamity dometically or world wide, BO, MO SOS, DOD and numerous unelected and elected decision-making people are out-of-WDC, out of the country or on recess. Does anyone in the federal government who is paid by tax payers actually do any work in the US, other than engage in personal and privately profitable dalliances, with women, men, taxes, gifts, jaunts and junkets?

Why even have a government? Or bother paying taxes? All these grifters do is enjoy lavish vacays, expensive wine and dine, high-price whores, 2nd and 3rd homes in Newport, Bahamas and Zurich, no questions asked for kids and grankids into elite private colleges with 2.0 GPAs, and unbridled inside trader information in market manipulation and massive investor return.

We have lost for some time the "government of the people, for the people and by the people". The adage should be the government takes from the people for the government and by the government.

Regardless of party, who should ever care anymore what they do. They will fleece us blind and spend however they want.

Frankly stop voting, stop working (then you do not have to pay taxes), let your house go into foreclosure and live there for five to eight years without paying anything other than utilities, go on food stamps, get a free phone and minutes, place on any application for any job or school that you are black and get a housing allowance. Let this benevolent government pay for everything. ´Bout time the producers start taking back, rather than giving back.

This was remarked/made fun of this morning on talk radio. The host who is an "independent" said that sending a female SecState to Muslim countries was a joke. The PIAPS is a bigger joke than most being in this position. Bibi is a gentleman and will listen to her but will ultimately do want needs to be done to defend Israel. Abbas is scum and will treat her with all of the respect do a camel flea. This will also keep Hillarious out of the country so that they can come up with story # 5(or is it 6? It´s hard to keep track.) for Benghazi-gate. Is the Huma Weiner going with? Or are they going to send Susan Rice the incompetent with her? Oops can I say that without being called a racist by the ingrates at the CBC. Oh man I´d better watch my six. LAUGH OUT LOUD!

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
