Putin Takes His Turn

Sore yet Mr. President?

Former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden's whereabouts were a mystery on Monday as Russia defied White House pressure to send him back to the United States and stop him fleeing Moscow on his globe-crossing escape from U.S. prosecution.

Snowden, whose exposure of secret U.S. government surveillance raised questions about intrusions into private lives, was allowed to leave Hong Kong on Sunday after Washington had asked the Chinese territory to arrest him on espionage charges.

The 30-year-old flew to Moscow as a transit stop before heading elsewhere, several sources said. But reports that he would fly to Cuba were put in doubt when witnesses could not see him on the plane, despite heightened security before take-off.

Putin reportedly described Brono Bamma as very bendy.

5 This is why I thought Palin would be a better president than Obama.

She could have said something nuts like "We'll embargo Russia!" and they'd have to think that she's just wild enough to try it.

Obama? Not so much. Kerry? *heh*

Of course if Palin was president, this wouldn't have happened in the first place.

6 Ecclesiastes: At least Palin had developed some political and management experience. Obama was a Community Organizer (aka rabble rouser) and continues to be not much else.

7 Obama is almost done,.

He had one thing holding him up, the DJIA. Its not holding him up now.

Now listen to NPR this am. Executive action on coal.

But the really interesting plant this AM is the story that Progress MO was, scrutinized by the IRS.

This is an original NetRoots/Organizing for America plant. Amazing that NPR picked up up like in half a second and repeated it 5 times on the drive in.

Now I had a post a while back that I didn't publish. It was on Mo congresswoman called a "climate denier". Press accounts cited and "obscure blog" as the source.

I found out via an OFA email. So I looked into it. Turns out Liberal Curmudgeon and Curmodgeons corner was the "source" they emailed the lady, cherry picked her response in red letters. Then the red part went all over the place. Painting her out of context quotes as all she said on the matter.

But this "progressives targeted too" stinks of an OFA plant from Progress Mo. They will cherry pick facts and describe their "persecution" although we all know they are Netroots. The IRS would be right to look because if they are a community welfare group then I'm Jack Hammer.

9 More on her "politics" from Newsbusters http://goo.gl/fuxLE

"Flock relied entirely on left-leaning groups like the Economic Policy Institute and the Sunlight Foundation, never describing them as liberal. No conservative think tanks were consulted for their input apparently."

10 Obama done. You sound like Moshe before the last election. Ha, ha. He's far from done.
