Geesh…this woman should think before she opens her mouth! Pissed that everyone is mad at Obama? Nothing new there woman. And does she really believe that his apology does not make the USA look weak and ineffective to the muslim world?
(CNN) — Criticism of President Barack Obama’s apology for the burning of Qurans in Afghanistanis not helpful, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday in a wide-ranging interview with CNN.
“I find it somewhat troubling that our politics would enflame such a dangerous situation in Afghanistan,” Clinton said of the complaints by Republican presidential candidates and some experts about Obama’s apology.
Obama apologized Thursday in a letter to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Qurans, which he called “inadvertent” and an “error.”
“It was the right thing to do to have our president on record as saying this was not intentional, we deeply regret it,” Clinton said.
At least four American troops have been killed in apparent revenge attacks in the past week, and dozens of Afghans have been killed or wounded in protests about the incident.
“We are hoping that voices inside Afghanistan will join that of President Karzai and others in speaking out to try to calm the situation,” Clinton said. “It is out of hand and it needs to stop.”

(why can’t democrats actually listen to what everybody says, especially Newt?)
The more I look at this outfit, the more I like it.

So I guess all these people are stupid?
2/24/12 – New York Democrat Rep. Kathy Hochul (CD-26) is told by a man attending a Town Hall Meeting that Barack Obama’s mandate on religious institutions to violate their religious beliefs is “tyranny” – a “slap in the face” to Catholics in America, and an attack on “Religious Freedom.” Hochul supports Obama’s mandate, and her only response was to say she held a Town Hall somewhere else and the people there were focused on jobs!
WGRZ LANCASTER, NY - Representative Kathy Hochul (D – 26th District) was booed at her own town hall meeting on Friday morning in Lancaster.
The packed crowd was critical of Hochul for supporting President Obama’s plan to require religiously affiliated employers, such as hospitals and schools, to provide full contraception coverage to female employees.
The plan was later altered. It now calls for those workers to get free contraceptive coverage from health insurers, thus sparing religious based groups, morally opposed to paying for birth control, from having to do so.
Even though Hochul’s town hall meeting was open to any topic, the large crowd focused on the contraception coverage issue.
When Hochul spoke in support of the President, the crowd booed. Many in the audience carried signs, including one that read: “Kathy why have you betrayed our Catholic institutions?” One woman in the crowd told Hochul: ”This President has lied to us repeatedly when he proclaims support for conscience protection in his infamous speech at Notre Dame as well as in the executive order he signed following passage of the health care law. He is not worthy of your support in this matter.” Another man shouted “It’s an insult to the Catholics in this country to even listen to that gibberish. It is an absolute insult and Catholics deserve better. We were taking care of this country’s sick long before the government got involved in it.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on the New York Post to apologize for publishing a political cartoon that the Muslim civil rights group says “evokes anti-Semitic themes” through its depiction of hook-nosed terrorists objecting to the New York City Police Department’s (NYPD) widespread campaign of spying on Muslims without warrants or evidence of wrongdoing.
The cartoon by Sean Delonas was published Friday in the Post and shows the turban-wearing, hook-nosed terrorists preparing bombs and weapons in an apartment, with an NYPD vehicle in the street. One of the terrorists is depicted on the phone with The Associated Press news agency, and says: “Hello, AP Press?. . .I’d like to register a complaint against the N.Y.P.D. for spying on us.”
The cartoonist’s reference is to a series of Associated Press investigative articles exposing the NYPD’s spying on Muslim individuals, students, businesses, and religious institutions — a campaign that has been condemned as unconstitutional by American Muslim and civil liberties groups.
(boy, islamics get pissed over cartoons? Geesh, what is their collective problem?)
Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, a leading Democratic lawyer who takes a hawkish line on Israel, has declared a personal war on the liberal group Media Matters, which has branched out into sharp criticism of Israel.
“Not only will [the Media Matters controversy] be an election matter, I will personally make it an election matter,” Dershowitz, a professor at Harvard Law School, told WABC’s Aaron Klein today.
Dershowitz has been sharply criticizing Media Matters for weeks, but suggested for the first time today he intends to drive the controversy into the political conversation.
“I don’t know whether President Obama has any idea that Media Matters has turned the corner against Israel in this way,” he said. “I can tell you this, he will know very shortly because I am beginning a serious campaign on this issue and I will not let it drop until and unless [writer and activist MJ] Rosenberg is fired from Media Matters, or Media Matters changes its policy or the White House disassociates itself from Media Matters.”
(maybe more and more liberals would move more to the center if stuff like this comes out daily)
Yesterday, the learned commentator appeared on Al Sharpton’s MS-NBC show, and described laws to protect innocent human life as “a national psychosis,” specifically, “an eating disorder.” You have to see it to believe it. This woman is a “professor.” Isn’t affirmative action a wonderful thing?
Not surprisingly, the programming geniuses over at the 24/7 insane asylum found a place in their lineup for Prof. Harris-Perry.
Since this happened last year, I doubt the islamics will go on a riot and start killing each other.
Seems like the daily kos is ranting about eliminating republicans? And of course, their following is just as bad if not worse if you want to read the comments.

Republicans, you vile, repulsive, scum. You’re not leading this country. You’re not contributing to this country. You’re not even part of this country. You are the maggot-ridden rot that arises in this country’s damaged flesh; you are the vultures constantly picking at us to see if we’re weak enough yet to become your next meal; you create problems where none would otherwise exist, just to further weaken America and quicken your own insatiable appetites; you are garbage, and you are traitors. And you are not welcome in this country anymore.
