Arianna Huffington: Will The Unemployment Disaster Be Obama's Katrina?

Unemployement - why won't Obama act?

This is a good piece about the wreckage that is resulting from high unemployment and how Obama and his team are not acting. Rest assured this isn't a Glen Beck, or Sarah Palin attack from the right, with only a lose foundation in reality. This is coming from a left-wing icon, Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post. Mr. Obama the time for action has come.

Unemployment damages the economy through the loss of consumer spending, but it also hurts those that have jobs. Companies have the ability to force workers into part-time shifts and to pay them lower wages.
The members of the Obama administration may not be attending a birthday party at John McCain's ranch in Sedona or shopping for expensive Ferragamo shoes in New York as a great American city is destroyed, but their decidedly lackadaisical response to what job losses are doing to multiple great American cities raises the question: will unemployment be Barack Obama's Katrina?

Is Google making a mistake?

Isn't this just adding fuel to the fire, by making more people aware of the photo - and thus driving traffic to the site that posted it. That increased traffic will mean the site will maintain a high ranking in Google's search results. I am sure Google could have thought of a better solution - like programing their search engine to produce a disclaimer on the page when the result comes up. That way only people who already had done the search would be made aware of it.
Google has purchased online ads in an effort to explain to users why an offensive image of Michelle Obama is appearing, and is ranked so highly, in its Google Image search results.

A small fight on the right

I have to say I agree with Allah Pundit in this matter. Though none of us were there to judge what happened. First of all, there is still an importance to operating under a rule of law - and the means not beating detainees. Second of all, he points out the involvement of Iraqi authorities made it much more of a political issue, and mandated action. What I don't understand, is why Allah is being attacked at all.

"Time for another Allahpundit sucks post" not that I can recall one in many moons or maybe ever. Fair is fair here is the post that pissed me off, and yes the blood mist is in my eyes. C'est la Vie.

Where does she come up with this stuff

Ok, I have been trying to take a fair stand on Sarah Palin. Many of the attacks on her haven't been fair. However, when she comes out and says that Obama isn't honoring the troops, when he just took time to attend a memorial and speak to their service, something should be said. I am not a "fan" of Obama either, but that statement just isn't fair.

What do polls mean?

I didn't put a lot of meaning in polls when it was Bush, and I still don't put a lot of meaning into polls. People will throw this data around like it is some kind of concrete fact, but it isn't. Or it is a fact, but I think it speaks very little to reality.

Give Rasmussen a lot of credit thus far in the Obama Era.  They predicted his decline first, have documented his rallies, and now report on the nadir of his standing among registered voters.  In their daily tracking poll, Barack Obama dropped to a 45% approval rating, tying the lowest mark of his term thus far, and hit a new record on their “passion index”

Rock Star Sex

I should become a pilot, and save a bunch of people's lives after crashing into some birds... oh that's too much work.

The hate around Sarah

There has been too much hateful language used against Sarah Palin, attacking her and her family personally, not not taking on her ideas. It is time this should stop, it is dishonest and weak to attack someone for being a womyn - it is always weak and dishonest.
The Left has declared war on Palin because she threatens their existence.  Democrats need women dependent and scared so that women, like blacks, will vote for liberals. 

A strong, self sufficient woman, Palin eschews their protection.   Drop her off in the Alaskan bush, and she'll survive just fine, thank you very much.  Palin doesn't need or want anything from liberals, not hate crimes legislation that coddles her, not abortion, which she abhors.
