Front Page! Bush Administration Preps Obama For Crisis

  • George W. Bush's White House has prepared more than a dozen contingency plans for President-elect Barack Obama to use if he faces an international crisis after Inauguration Day. The extent of the transition, which also includes personal briefings by senior counterterrorism officials with their replacements, is unprecedented. — New York Times
  • UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced that British troops will fully withdrawal from Iraq by May 31, leaving the US as the only foreign military presence in the country. — LA Times
  • Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. claims that he went to federal agents in 2006, reporting what he believed was corruption and misconduct by Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Jackson rejects the label "informant" and says his complaint was unrelated to the current investigation. — CNN
  • Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari said that there's no firm evidence that gunman from the Mumbai Massacre came from Pakistan, despite the fact that US, Indian, and British officials claim the attack originated from training camps inside Pakistan. — BBC News

For one thing you are wrong for breakin out Soul Train. I always wanted to do the ST line. Those outfits. OB is not expecting that type of situation. Bush was flawless and then brought his head up and then ducked again - he is a pro.

...$100 says Obama would not have been able to move that fast.

It's a good effort, and I applaud the apparently unprecedented scop and depth. I just hope the advice offered when faced with, say, a terrorist attack isn't anything along the lines of "use it to bomb the sh!t out of a country that had nothing to do with the attack in the first place."

We do need to bring the troops home, but we also need to do it strategically. The British had already started their retreat from Iraq since last year. It time for us to start doing the same.

Well there's nothing like putting the rubber to the pavement with a little adrenaline in you veins.

Exactly, Steph. Let's see if Obama lives up to his campaign promise.

I mean what if there was a bomb in the shoe or the shoe was laced with some type of chemical/toxin secret service was way off the mark on this one!

"Very true, kranky. I'm glad for that, even when people disagree with me!" Here, here! Thanks be to the non-denominational-higher-power-or-lack-thereof that we are all free to agree to disagree.

Good point about the secret service--I was wondering the same thing. I assume that if they're ready to take a bullet for Bush, they should also be willing to take a shoe. Or two. Didn't they also allow Jenna (or Barbara) Bush's purse to get stolen in Mexico or something like that? I could have sworn I heard that a few years ago.

LOL nobody gets sarcasim if it's typed I was making a joke. Of course the out going president is the one that has to brief the incoming president...lay off the caffine people sheesh! But seriously Bush does need to tell Obama to get better secret service people the reaction time of his when the shoes were being thrown is really terrible!

Well, I guess we are the last players, mydiadem...

"The cheese stands alone." No, our troops stand alone.
em1282 em1282 8 years
Very true, kranky. :) I'm glad for that, even when people disagree with me! UD--Bush also has to tell Obama that he has to jiggle the handle on the toilet outside of the Lincoln Bedroom. (Sorry, that's from an OLD SNL sketch with Dana Carvey as Bush. Ah the randomness that clutters my brain.)

'UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced that British troops will fully withdrawal from Iraq by May 31, leaving the US as the only foreign military presence in the country.' The cheese stands alone

Em- I certainly enjoy a good joke (I'll cop to not clicking on your link though - sorry!). However, it is also happens that people can voice their opinions of other people's jokes in democratic, free societies.
em1282 em1282 8 years
Like y'know how Bush said the shoe-throwing is what happens in democratic, free societies? People can make funny videos in democratic, free societies too, and post them on websites as jokes. See? It works everywhere! :)

Oh Good Lord, it was a joke. :oy:

See he is a good guy and has the best interests of American citizens in mind. IMO this is better then seeing Obama get "tested" as Biden said. Hopefully if he does get "tested" then he will be prepared for it.
