This role used to be played by Linda Douglass, who has been an unequivocal disaster as a spinmeister for the Obama Administration. The fact that Anita Dunn is actually doing no better (perhaps worse) than Douglass, might provide fuel to the argument that the problem is not with people like Douglass or Dunn but with the president whose case they're tasked with making.

There is a whiney tone to Anita Dunn, for sure but perhaps she wouldn't be needed if Obama would actually respond to the very legitimate questions posed by talk radio, conservative blogs, and people like Glenn Beck instead of ignoring them.

I find it interesting that CNN has been airing panels and interviews in which it serves as the neutral bystander when the Fox News Channel is the topic. I guess if you're not going to carry programming that challenges the president, the next best thing is to talk about the network that does.

Laughed out Loud several times watching this. As someone who rarely misses Beck's program, I took no offense to this roasting at the hands of Colbert. On the contrary, this segment on Beck would likely garner him more viewers. I particularly liked when James Carville's analysis of Beck was shown. Carville called Beck "nuts" and a "blatant hypocrite".

As he did so, I think Glenn Beck was inside his head.......yelling.

Not sure what the bigger story is here. The Obama administration singling out Fox News in true Alinsky Rule #8 style (keep the pressure on) or CNN actually discussing how great Fox News Channel's ratings are.

What's more amazing than all of that is the fact that CNN and others are making absolutely NO EFFORT to follow the winning formula Fox News has discovered. Instead, they apparently want to do play by play and color analysis of the battle between FNC and Obama. Perhaps they should stop fact-checking Saturday Night Live skits directed at Barack Obama as a start.

Interesting to watch, though. The overwhelming sentiment seems to be that going after FNC publicly is a bad move by the Obama White House. Obviously, their biggest beef is with Beck, Hannity, and O'Reilly (probably in that order). However, instead of answering the questions posed by those hosts (Beck in particular), they stonewall and cry foul.

Pretty pathetic........and pretty telling.

Beck and company must be onto something.

Yet another example that the world is upside down... All across Europe, leaders of nations are signing on to the myth that is man-made global warming (if it wasn't a myth, it wouldn't have been re-named "climate change"). However, Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic is embarassing all of the others who know the truth and go along because of cowardice or ignorance.

(Pictured: Vaclav Klaus - I LOVE THIS GUY) The TIMES ONLINE reports:
In faraway Brussels furious diplomats were calling for his impeachment and even his country’s expulsion from the European Union because of his obstinate refusal to sign the Lisbon treaty. Klaus, now the only European leader holding out against ratifying the document, made it clear he did not give a damn.
Surely, there are other leaders who know the truth as well but where are they? Are they such cowards that they are willing to let Klaus stand alone?

So far, the answer is yes.

Perhaps it's a similar mentality to that of RINO senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham, who are signing on to the CAP & TAX BILL.

Anyway, particularly noteworthy in the Times Online article is how Klaus is standing up to these intenational bullies. Knowing that any change to the charter he thinks is useless, Klaus has advocated a change that would require all 27 nation states to sign before he will accept the treaty himself. The change is pretty reasonable actually - Germans not allowed to reclaim property in the region given to Hitler in WWII:
On Klaus’s return to Prague he dropped a political bombshell. At a press conference in his official residence the Czech leader announced that he would sign the treaty only if his government negotiated an opt-out from the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which is incorporated in the treaty.

He was concerned that the charter may permit retrospective property claims by the Sudeten Germans, a 3.5m-strong minority group expelled from the Czech Republic after the second world war.

“I have always considered this treaty a step in the wrong direction,” Klaus said. As he is well aware, the slightest change to the treaty, which was first proposed in 2001, would require all 27 EU member countries to agree.

His remarks were greeted with outrage in Europe. German and French diplomats, in talks with their Czech counterparts, explored two ways of removing the Klaus obstacle: impeach him or change the Czech constitution to take away his right of veto.
In a world that is upside down and backwards, it is leaders like Vaclav Klaus of the Czech Republic, Roberto Micheletti of Honduras, Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County in Arizona who are showing true courage and are on the right side of history. So many others are either nefarious or cowardly.
