Can Obama See Russia From His House?

8 Nov

Pale Politics

  • Jeb Bush the future of the Republican party? In all honesty why not? Nobody else is stepping up to the plate with any success, let the man have a few swings. But with his last name it may be a little while before he’s politically viable for the higest office in the free world. That being said his popularity in Florida is high after a successful gubernatorial stint, why not Congressman or Senator Bush? That is of course assuming he doesn’t become Ambassador to Russia or something. (Stupid President and his intellegent political maneuvering)
  • Russia is almost certainly the key to Afghanistan and a stable central Asia. They can assert broad socio-political influence in a region that the US and the rest of the Western World are still trying to figure out. Russia is the natural geographical bridge between the West and Asia, but it can be much more. That is if Russia could ever get on the same page as the US, hence the President’s current trip. Either way, Vladmir Putin may be the only world leader who can be intimidating holding a tea cup.

  • To Sarah Palin, I thought you were leaving? The Andrea Mitchell interview makes me think that she actually believes resigning an important role like Governor isn’t an inditment of her abilities as a political executive, and that her lack of widespread appeal is a media conspiracy against her. Further, an interview like this fuels the story. So why did she announce on a Friday again? I just don’t get it.
  • RIP Robert MacNamara. While certainly a controversial figure, not enough has been made of his honest and seemingly heartfealt ability to say that he was wrong about vietnam. While it was a late to the party kind of conversion, given his position in the administratons he served, I can appreciate his loyalty to the Presidents he served.

    True story – Putin probably is the only world leader who can be intimidating while holding a tea cup – my guess is that he doesn’t have tea in the cup, either.
