meister, have you ever received a thumbs up on a post? You're not entirely wrong on everything you post, just like 75% wrong.

It's getting better all the time.

This is where Snowden comes in.

EARNEST: The president did e-mail with Secretary Clinton. I assume that he recognized the e-mail address that he was e-mailing back to.

EARNEST: I would not describe the number of e-mails as large, but they did have the occasion to e-mail one another. And the point that the president was making is not that he didn't know Secretary Clinton's e-mail address; he did. But he was not aware of the details of how that e-mail address and that server had been set up. crackup[1].gif

“The president, as I think many people expected, did over the course of his first several years in office trade emails with his secretary of state,” Earnest said. “I would not describe the number of emails as large, but they did have the occasion to email each other.”

Earnest’s admission comes after Obama said on CBS on Saturday that he learned about Clinton’s use of a private email and server “the same time everybody else learned it, through news reports.” According to Earnest, this comment should not be assumed to mean that Obama and Clinton never emailed back and forth.

I don't understand what Netanyahu is thinking on running a no Palestine ever platform, as Obama's position on the 2 state solution has been the official USA policy for decades.

He "clarified" the statement immediately after the election, saying he just meant it wasn't going to happen as a practical matter, not that he wouldn't agree to a Palestinian state if it was workable.

Netanyahu's true intent is an academic question because it's obvious that the Arabs will not be willing or able to make it work.

I don't think those in control of the Arab states want a independent Palestine, what else would they use as a distraction from the ineptitude they seem to have.

At the same time is the apparent nuclear armed Iran just not going to start another arms race over there?

Maybe obvious to you, but not obvious to others such as the EU. And there are better things for the US to expend their diplomatic resources with the EU on, such as dealing with Russia.

So what you're saying is Ataturk posses better insight and perception than the best political and diplomatic brains of the EU?

This is good to know.

But after Bill de Blasio’s mayoral victory in New York City and the rise of Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts as a political force, progressive groups here and nationally are hoping to deal a blow to the Democratic Party establishment and its ties to business and wealthy donors. They believe that the election of another unabashed liberal as the mayor of a leading American metropolis would reverberate from City Hall to Washington to the 2016 presidential campaign.

“I think the whole country’s watching Chicago,” Mr. Garcia said in an interview at a law office in the downtown Loop with a view of Lake Michigan. “And it has implications for the Democratic Party and the elections next year in terms of Congress and the presidency.”


Looks like the GOP will have it in the bag.
