Bruce Springsteen, Waitin on a Sunny Day
President Obama asked his Attorney General to investigate the recent spate of leaks of national security information. From the secret hacking of Iranian computers to the administration's policy on drone strikes (The President makes the final call) there have been a series of articles lately, all of them casting the administration in a good light- which then put the President on the defensive in his presser yesterday to the charge his administration is leaking these items for political purposes.
AG Holder bypassed the Special Counsel option and appointed US Attorneys for DC and Maryland to run concurrent investigations. No surprise that "No Drama Obama" didn't want to go the Special Counsel route. Those guys are like hostess twinkies- once you create them they take on a life of their own and never just fade away.
Prometheus will either be very good or a real snoozer.
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh (Prince Philip) has left the hospital after a five night stay that caused him to miss the finales of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee.
Chris Pole is your newest Broward County Court Judge (should that read the way it does, or should there be another "county" after the first county because we are referring to a county court judge in Broward County?)
The cardinal rule of being a political consultant is never, never, never tell the truth about your candidate. Always lie. Always spin the negative into a positive and spin a positive into a momentous event. But Steve Schmidt, John McCain's campaign manager in the 2008 election- and the man directly responsible for the selection of running mate Sara Palin- is ignoring the cardinal rule and telling the truth about his selection of Palin:
“My regret is I should have been the guy to say, ‘Stop, it’s too risky,’ ” he said, walking slowly up the road to his home. “As opposed to the guy saying: ‘Let’s take the risk. We have to win this.’ ”
How does that make him feel? “Terrible, terrible, terrible,” he said. “I have a level of regret that is hard to put into words. The notion that I would be a participant in a decision that, had events turned out the other way, this person would have been in national command authority? I am sick about it.”
It makes us sick too, and we had nothing to do with the decision.
Query: What's dirtier than a Hialeah cesspool?
A: The north Florida prosecution of former Florida GOP Chairman Jim Greer. Especially when former Governor Charlie Crist files an affidavit for the prosecution. Greer's lawyer called Chuckie's mouthpiece to see if the Governor turned hack attorney would consider revising his affidavit after further reflection. Chuckie and his gang ran crying to the FDLE. Now everyone is pointing fingers and printing out emails.
What's on your mind this weekend?
