Update.... And the RNC Chair is... Michael Steele‏

So this was inevitable.... Remember the whole Sarah Palin thing?

Repubs: "So Barack didn't pick Hillary and they voters are not really interested in voting a man in at your advanced age... So we've found a young, hot and slightly potty mouth chick in Alaska named Sarah Palin that will get your ticket moving"

McCain:"Well... if it will get me elected... What's her name again?"

Repubs:"Small details, you have a press conference in 10 to introduce her"

No please don't get me wrong Micheal Steele is no Sarah Palin... He was former Lt. Gov. of Maryland... The Maryland State RNC Chair and a chief fundraiser for the party, (and played the politics game well, making enough friends within the Party to bypass the rednecks within the Party and STILL get elected).... But if the Repubs think that a putting a blackman in the face of minorities (no matter how unaligned said blackman is politically to the base in which you are trying to attract) then they are sadly mistaken...

Hats off to you Chairman Steele... You (along with your golden Resume) have positioned yourself to be the first Black RNC Chair and (even though I am not supporting your party, or your rhetoric) I hope you do make the Repubs AT LEAST viable opponents for the dems... To the rest of the Repubs in general... I hope this shit bites you in the ass! AGAIN!!

Update- Week 1 Down, 207 to go (415 hopefully) --- THE MIDDLE EAST‏

Hello All,

I am sure you enjoyed the inauguration of our 44th President, and I am SURE you all engaged in the countless prayer meetings, helping homeless people and quiet reverence of this historic event... I am SURE none of you great intellectuals partook of the drunken debauchery that encapsulated Washington DC and the 1.5 million "visitors" ;-) But now that the fun is over the work begins, and (as expected by many) President Obama has been on his job.

In his first formal interview since his inauguration, President Obama, with Dubai-based Arabic Satellite News Channel Al-Arabiya reiterated his promise of a true diplomacy in the Middle East. This comes on the heels of newly tapped Middle East Envoy, George Mitchell, trip to Egypt to discuss new diplomacy and, more importantly, Gaza ceasefire. During the interview President Obama spoke of extending the hand of peace and diplomacy to Iran as long as Iran "Unclenched it's fist"; he also took the time to share with the, predominately Muslim, Middle East that the US are not enemies of Muslims and that the US had made some mistakes in the past, but there will be much more open diplomatic efforts (I really appreciated how he was able to insult President Bush in the nicest way possible)... President Obama also took this time to show support for Israel and their security, although, he did make it known that Israel and Palestine will have to make "tough desicions" to achieve peace.

Welcome 2009!!!!!

Well Hello Hello and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

I hope everyone had a splendid holiday and may I start my first Update of 2009 with a wish for a blessed and prosperous year for everyone!

2009 will be an exciting and keep you on your toes year as we all watch President Obama take his position as the 44th President of the United States; with the economy on a seemingly downward spiral, a war that needs to end and Foreign Relations around the globe left tattered and in desperate need of repair, it will be interesting to see Obama's plan in action.

Let's begin with the economy: P/E Obama will begin his first week as a Washingtonian on the hill lobbying support and expediency of his economic plan. This economic rescue proposal will focus on tax-breaks for the consumer estimating around $300billion, tax breaks for small businesses, and other corporate tax breaks for those that create jobs and keep jobs form going over seas.

Below you will find the President Obama's weekly Radio Address briefly discussing his economic plan and a CNNMoney Report

Roland Burris Goes To Washington?

Why anyone would want to stand their career within 10 political feet of Rod Blagojevich is beyond me, but of course then we meet Roland Burris. Roland Burris has been an upstanding civil servant for years with not one drop of dirt on him and would probably make an excellent US Senator, however, placing himself within the presence of a megalomanic such as Blagojevich gives Mr. Burris a stench that Gucci cologne couldn't cover up.

Oh and if you didn't see the world's most peculiar press conference (or you just need a good laugh)... Enjoy

Obama's Cabinet has a good shaking up this week. The pick of New Mexico Governor/ Former Democratic Presidential Nominee hopeful Bill Richardson as Secretary of Commerce was always an odd fit (being that it was speculated that he was on the short list for Secretary of State and that the nomination was given to keep the latino constituents from getting pissed that Richardson did not receive SoS) and never felt stable... Well this Sunday Gov. Bill Richardson issued a withdrawal from the nomination due to a "Pay-to-Play" investigation involving a political donor of Richardson's that he has insisted he will be cleared of all wrong doing (NOTE CLEARED OF WRONG DOING NOT NECESSARILY INNOCENT... I'M JUST SAYING) but doesn't want to hinder the confirmation process.

Another Appointment critcism came from the appointment of Leon Panetta as head of the CIA... Briefly... Mr. Panetta has been a fixture with in Washington for years (Clinton Chief of Staff) and although he was there in every Foregin Policy briefing and has budgetary experience (which CIA is in desperate need of) and has the connections to get the big money (Also something CIA needs) he has no direct Intel experience!! This lack of experience is proving problematic for Senator Feinstein and many others on the hill, but think about it... How many of us are doing what our degrees indicate we studied 4+ years for at whatever accredited institution we attended? OR EVEN BETTER... How many of us work for or with those that have been working in their field for YEARS and are about as competent as 3 year olds? I'm just saying.
