Whatever, Obama didn't even mention moats and alligators last night, so how engaged is he in the real debate about border security?
"Now let me be clear — I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein President Obama. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people Constitution to secure his own power. He has repeatedly defied UN resolutions American laws, thwarted UN inspection teams Congressional investigations, developed chemical and biological propaganda weapons, and coveted nuclear dictatorial capacity. He's a bad guy. The world, and the Iraqi American people, would be better off without him. "But I also know that Saddam Obama poses no imminent and direct long-term or permanent threat to the United States ... that the Iraqi economy Democratic Party is in shambles, that the Iraqi military OFA a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community leadership in Congress and in our party he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history." --Stuff the Official GOP Top Men Response (probably almost) said

That Corker quote: “This president is not acting in strength, he is acting in weakness. Er... "Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors, not out of strength but out of weakness," Obama said. “You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country,” ...“That’s not the act of somebody who’s strong, “ Kerry added, saying Putin is acting out of “weakness” and “desperation.”

Yeah, McConnell messed up that metaphor. I think he meant, "like a rodeo clown waving an Obama mask in front of a bull"

Forget pinocchios and pants on fire, we now have the Gruber Rating system to determine how bad an Obama administration lie is. 1 gruber: 2 grubers: 3 grubers: 4 grubers: The scale goes up to as many as 10 grubers, but such a rating is typically reserved for events such as tonight's Obama speech. If I actually took this seriously, I suppose I would define each gruber (i would also use differing pics of gruber for the different levels and mix and match them for frivolity).

It is a shame that We Can't Wait because of the Fierce Urgency of Now. I think Obama should have announced this on Quatro de Cinco.

Insty: IT’S POTEMKIN VILLAGES ALL THE WAY DOWN: Report: White House secretly counted dental plans in Obamacare enrollment numbers; Without counting dental plans, Obamacare would have missed its goal. When your Potemkin Village is so unconvincing that even Vox is pointing out the papier-mache and chickenwire. . . . I've enjoyed my "Pinocchios All the Way Down" graphic, but if the man keeps insisting on Potemkin villages.......

TiH: You have to have a picture ID to get on an airplane, get into certain government buildings, buy cigarettes, buy beer or wine, get certain medications, drugs or prescriptions from the drug store, and on and on. Well, here's some of my experience over the past year... Expired license. I'm a slacker about such things. No worries, I had a passport when I needed an ID. On our way back from Idaho this year, we drove to Dallas where I was flying back to NC, whilst mrs hit and run and the kids were continuing on to her family's. Turns out . . . my passport had expired in May. D'oh! Went up to the TSA agent at Love Field and handed her my passport. You never know, maybe she won't even check. Nope. She saw it. "You know this is expired, right?" Cock my head, furrow my brow and say . . . "really??????" She looks back down at it, then back up at me, our eyes meet, mine drop to the floor as I shuffle my feet. I start to stammer, "would it help if I showed you a picture credit card and my social security card?" She stopped, me - "no you're good, but you want to get that updated." White privilege, I'm sure. That was actually the second time a TSA agent let me through with an expired ID (I'm telling you, I'm a slacker). The time before was at the Jackson Hole airport 5-6 years ago. I'm all caught up to date now on my ID's. But the only other time the expired ID was an issue? When I tried to rent a rug cleaner from the local Food Lion. They be serious about that sh*t.

FWIW, Dems got more votes in this election in NC *because* voter id was an issue. "ZOMG! If you don't vote this year Republicans will never let you vote ever again!" (for the record, as long as it wasn't your first time voting, and you weren't trying to same-day register and vote, you didn't have to show id at the polls this year . . . and even if you tried that without an id, you could cast a provisional ballot anyway, provided you followed up with an id . Actual voter ID requirements go into effect in 2016)

Article at Wapo about Perry. Found this mildly amusing. Asked specifically about one who is not here, former governor Jeb Bush, [Perry] said, “Until a candidate says ‘I am running,’ I think to speculate about how they would perform is a bit premature. I’m not going to get drug [sic] into analyzing this myriad of people who may or may not run.” Having spared with Obama over immigration for years, Perry was sharply critical of the president’s pending decision to use executive action expected to relieve millions of illegal immigrations from the threat of deportation. Needs a [sic].

With Barry having poured gasoline all over the middle east, flipping cigarette butts as he goes, and having giving Putin all the flexibility he needs to #YOLO all over Ukraine, I imagine there will be a strong sense that the ticket needs a nat sec minded and experience person opposite a governor. You can be sure that the MSM would play up the idea that Walker is too inexperienced in foreign policy to handle all the instability in the world -- and we'd get the inevitable questions like "who's the prime minister of Mahsitakipolistan?" (trick question! there is no Mahsitakipolistan, and even if there were, they wouldn't have a parliamentary system of government, and would be headed by a president. see how dumb this guy is?) Oh and we'll probably get an SNL skit, "Walker can't even see Canada from his porch!" And so on.

Janet: Happy Birthday, DrJ! Lots of love to you!! When looking up HB in German this morning, this was one of the possibilities: "Alles Liebe zum Geburtstag." This sentiment means something along the lines of "much love for your birthday." ...made me think of you.

NK: I find Hit & Run's access to Big Data..... troubling. Just so we're all clear: I've never wished anyone a happy anything that wasn't first shared on JOM, with the obvious exception of the 247 times I've wished MayBee a HB. Oh, and a few that came via email, including TM. It all started back in 2008 when Elliott emailed me about cooking up a fun birthday celebration for Jane. After that I thought it would be fun to celebrate more happy days. I started The List and simply noted anytime anyone mentioned a birthday or anniversary. It started out on a sticky note. When The List got too big to fit on the sticky note, I just kept a draft email that I kept adding to. Recently, The List got too the point that the email wasn't cutting it. You'll never guess what happened next... Yes, The List includes stuff like parents and kids and pets and neighbors and business partners. Someone says "birthday", I write it down. If someone mentions an age or year of birth, that goes on The List as well. No one yet has give the exact time of their birth, but if they did...........

Oh, and I missed this from MONDAY... HAPPY 30TH ANNIVERSARY MRS. NK!!! I really don't keep up with anniversaries nearly as much as birthdays, but if I know of a big milestone like that....

They JOM Style Guide clearly states that the recipient of a birthday greeting - and only the recipient of a birthday greeting - can correct the spelling errors in a birthday greeting directed at him or her. Anyone other than the recipient of the birthday greeting who corrects the spelling of a birthday greeting may be subject to not being wished a birthday greeting on his or her next birthday, at the discretion of the keeper of The List.

Ext: Final info for OL. Her grandfather was the famous Rikkor von Bad-Boll, who was a multiple-time world champion Schutzhund and sired over 1300 puppies. (The database at the link has that kind of info, and can trace a dog back well over 10 generations.) Great site! I've mentioned before that my parents got into Schutzhund after the kids all went off to college. Here's good ol' Sunrise Bonnie on the pedigree page you linked. My parents ended up breeding Bonnie for 3 litters, 24 pups total.
