NBC did a squishy, fawning description of Russia, for the benefit, I guess, of those attending and viewing the Olympics. They did briefly mention that it was a Marxist-Leninist totalitarian state under Stalin that from 1917 to 1991 slaughtered tens of millions of people. I guess that killing millions doesn’t count for much when you’re hosting athletic games.
President Obama has bypassed congress by issuing executive orders concerning Obamacare and Immigration Reform. His authority to do so is constitutionally questionable, but despite this he continues to usurp the authority of congress. Bob Schieffer of ABC News seems to opine that the GOP is merely being petty by bringing this point up. In my opinion the GOP has not been forceful enough. Circumventing the Constitution is no petty matter.
At the annual National Prayer Breakfast President Obama said that promoting religious freedom (is) a key part of U.S. foreign policy. Of course, he failed to mention his administration’s intolerance toward a religion that abhors birth control or abortion, and its intransigence toward modification of laws for its benefit. Its not as if the Catholic faith is some little sect in Burnt Stump Arkansas.
