If there is ever a time when we as a country should be celebrating, it was during the Presidents bid for the 2016 Olympics. But now, we have a sitting President who has won the Nobel Peace Prize. And yet, we see the Republican Party and political pundits digging for dirt. Sensationalism.
I had an opportunity to be awake at 3a.m. central in time for the announcement. Surprised? Absolutely. A recognition of Obama's message of hope the world over. So when I hear Politicians exclaim, "It is a gift to the right" in stead of "congratulations" I am witness to the inescapable hatred and defiant nature of the GOP.
Why in the world will they never simply be happy for the President of the United States. All of our President. I keep looking for an ounce of decency in their party but there is none. From the subtle insults to the outright racism that permeats their "oppose everything" style of legislating, they bring great shame to us all.
It doesn't matter if he is working on the Economy, the Environment, or Health Care, the Republicans have decided that opposing him at every turn is the best strategy for 2010. You see, it is not about your wellbeing or mine, it is all about the political calculation they have made which is dependent on Obama's complete failure.
So, by all means...take care of yourselves and don't get sick. But if you do, then "Die Quickly" because their party doesn't care about anything but helping the rich get richer and the poor thrown onto the streets.

Remember these moments?
Thursday, September 24, 2009
Let’s think a moment: we need to see a stronger effort on the part of Democratic leaders to shape health care reform in a way that is meaningful to the American people. It is clear that the opposition is not interested in participating so it is time for the Dems to step up and get it done.
Nancy Pelosi announced during her weekly news conference, as reported by CNN, “she expects a final version soon that would have the support of the full Democratic caucus, which holds a majority in the House.”
Pelosi commented, "We're on course to be ready soon" to put out a bill to the full House.
This means that it is possible to have a Bill that could gain the full support of the Democrats without need of a single Republican vote. If we can get something passed, it will mean a great deal to the party and the President. It can also be a political pitfall for the Republican Party. That is what is at stake.
So to answer the earlier question, was the appointment of Paul Kirk political? The short answer is YES.

The 9 Principles
o I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
o The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
o If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
o I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
o I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
o It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
o The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
