Someone at the New York Times gives Palin a somewhat decent “shake”?!


Although PanAm does not care to see Gov. Palin enter the presidential race, again, it is  newsworthy from this perch that the powers that be at the TIMES permitted the publishing of “Some of Sarah Palin’s Ideas Cross the Political Divide“.   She is cited as having been critical of the  “Permanent political class” of all stripes that governs America and of  “Corporate crony capitalism”, as well as having been critical too of  “…  the collusion of big government and big business and big finance to the detriment of all the rest”. … 

Particularly so grating is that it’s so true that so many politicians  “… arrive in Washington of modest means and then somehow ride the gravy train to fabulous wealth.”…  Something IS rotten in,  Washington. …

Is it a new beginning for the New York Times,  transitioning to being fair?  Probably not, but it’s worth noting. …

Pres. Obama’s policies in Iraq and Afghanistan have been detrimental to the troops and to the nation?


Certainly appears that way to this writer…  The troops and their families who have sacrificed so much deserve better leadership…  Any failures in Iraq and Afghanistan are because of the president’s failed policies and leadership, and ” window dressing  “changes as a part of his presidential campaign do not change matters … 

The nation deserves better…

Person of the Week: Charlie Savage, from the New York Times


[Photo from Mr. Savage’s Bio.]

Yes,  from the New York Times, Mr. Savage,  Person of the Week, for disclosing  how, in effect, the president was able to say with ostensibly a straight face that the USA is not engaged in hostilities in Libya(!) — contrary to what common sensical people might conclude after witnessing the raining bombs fall on Kadafi’s compound and elsewhere, and seeing the military budget for the particular military operation skyrocket…  Of course, mind you, Charlie Savage having written what he did and on this page having been written that the New York Times writer is the Person of the Week does not imply that Kadafi is a good guy — are we clear? 

And no wonder some Democrats and Republicans are livid that the War Powers Resolution is being violated by the President … 

Thank you, Mr. Savage…

Potpourri Pan America: “minorities” will inherit the country and then what? And more…


PONDER THIS:

[Rep. Issa.]

1.  In numbers, the future is bright for minorities in America   — but as a consequence, success will be a failure for them and for all?

2. Issa saw the light finally and fired his spokesperson  —  Rep. Issa and the Republicans could still shoot themselves on the collective foot by playing up to the people at the New York Times and by not maintaining the highest decorum.

3.  ” my people”, says AG Eric Holder, are only the Black people?   — well, not quite, but gives the  impression.

4.  President Obama is weak on the world stage? — more than one person has decried the shortcoming.

5.  Another past study and critique of the problems in Mexico — what has been done about it?  Not much

Wikileak “this” — who in the U.S. Government “will pay” for allowing the breach to occur?


How in the name of national security was it possible, reportedly,  for anyone to have the freedom to pilfer  electronically  hundreds of thousands of sensitive communiques and forward them to Wikileaks?…  Who was minding the store ?, and though of course the low ranking enlisted fellow has to be prosecuted,  heads of higher-ups will have to roll…  This is major damage that will be felt for years in so many ways…  Henceforth, is anyone going to trust speaking with our government officials?..  Whose head(s) will roll?..
