The New York Daily News buried this story on page A22 so you have to give USA Today some credit for publishing somewhere other than their obit page.

European and Asian companies are beating their American rivals into Iraq now that security has improved the investment climate, Iraq and U.S. officials say.

“It’s starting to turn … and the people who are getting in on the ground floor are not American,” said Paul Brinkley, the Pentagon official who is leading U.S. efforts to help Iraq rebuild its economy. “It’s ironic.”

Foreign companies, including U.S. investors, have committed to deals worth about $500 million so far this year and Brinkley expects at least $1 billion in foreign investment by the end of the year.

So far, Romanian consortium and a Lebanese company have signed revenue-sharing deals with Iraqi state-owned cement factories. Each group will invest about $150 million.

China has also aggressively pursued the Iraqi market, selling machinery to the government and electronic products to consumers.

Gee, does this mean someone was full of more shit than a Christmas fruitcake in declaring the “war lost” over a year ago?

Does it mean Rep. Pelosi Rep. Felosi was not just incorrect but a blithering idiot when she said the war was “failure” as little as 4 months ago?

Why yes, yes it does!

And what of all those Benchmarks the democraps were all in a tizzy about?

In a way I shouldn’t give one wit what an asshatted writer like Gore Vidal thinks or writes about, he’s long been a thorn in the side of common sense and reason, but, sometimes you just gotta laugh at some of the shit this guy brings to the table.

It will take the the United States a century to recover from the damage wreaked by President George W Bush, US writer Gore Vidal said in an interview published today.

“The president behaved like a virtual criminal but we didn’t have the courage to sack him for fear of violating the American constitution,” Mr Vidal told the El Mundo newspaper.

The author, a trenchant critic of the US-led invasion of Iraq, said it would take the United States 100 years to repair the damage caused by Bush.

“We live in a dictatorship. We have a fascist government …which controls the media,” he said.

Got that? This nitwit makes the claim Bush hasn’t been impeached because to OH SOOOO far left loons in Congress didn’t want to violate the Constitution to do so.

So obviously he would support what amounts to a “fascist government” as long as it impeached the president. Fuck the Constitution in that case!

Would you be surprised to learn Gore thinks The ObamaMessiah is the smartest thing to come on the scene since, well, I don’t know when since. He just is, at least according to this asshat.

Not only that he thinks Sen. McCain’s Vietnam war history is a figment of the Senators imagination:

Asked what he thinks of McCain, Vidal calls him a “disaster,” then tells Deborah Solomon, “Who started this rumor that he was a war hero? Where does that come from, aside from himself? About his suffering in the prison war camp?”

Solomon replies: “Everyone knows he was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.” To which Vidal responds: “That’s what he tells us.”

Does this guy, at the age of 82 still have a working brain cell?Related articles

So Barack ObamaMessiah is the Democrat Party’s anointed one. The road block that finally clipped the wings of a Clinton from getting what that terrible twosome wanted, another shot at screwing up the country.

Not to mention a few interns along the way.

So what does the ObamaMessiah do on the very day he clinches his date with destiny? (or infamy if things prove out as I suspect they will)

Why he commits ignorant error #3,498,092 by naming three nitwits as some type of vetting service to the campaign for the purpose of selecting a vice president.

His choice of Eric Holder, Jim Johnson and Caroline Kennedy raises three more reasons to question ObamaMessiah’s judgement if not his sanity.

Eric Holder was the #2 man under Janet Reno during the Clinton years an era in Justice Department history that can be arguably called the most corrupt ever.

Holder was the point man that in effect gave Slick Willy the go ahead to pardon Marc Rich who at the time was on the FBI’s ten most wanted list and later was discovered to be heavily involved in the U.N’s. Oil for Food scandal in Iraq.

Jim Johnson come to this search committee with a fair amount of baggage himself if for no other reasons than he continually picks losers as VP candidates. Johnson helped John Kerry pick John Edwards in 2004, and Walter Mondale select Geraldine Ferraro in 1984. That’s not exactly a good resume if applying for a job on a VP selection committee but I guess mediocre is good enough for ObamaMessiah.

Johnson is a former Fannie Mae CEO and that firm was steeped in scandal during his tenure.

And finally that brings me to Caroline Kennedy and her addition to this “illustrious group.”

What she brings to the table I haven’t clue #1 other than she’s a KENNEDY and part of that whole Camelot myth that surrounds that clan of drunks and assassinated politicians. Other than that she has zero experience with electoral politics.

Put another way ObamaMessiah in selecting Caroline has chosen star power over substance. A pretty consistent problem for the man that learned his politics at the knee of some of Chicago’s old style politicians that are more flash than substance and in far too many cases corrupt as hell.

And I have to note with just the slightest bit of hilarity ObamaMessiah’s minions should take a closer look at what they are following lemming-like, instead of the hopey and changeful candidate he’s every bit the consummate Washington D.C. politician embracing wach and every slimebag that will somehow help him get his foot in the door of the Oval Office.Related articles

According to the AP, an always questionable source, “Barack Obama is resigning a 20 year membership in the Trinity United Church of Christ in the aftermath of inflammatory remarks by former pastor the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.”

Campaign communications director Robert Gibbs said Obama had submitted a letter of resignation to the church and would discuss his decision in a session with reporters later Saturday.

I find it interesting he would not only quit but also in not mentioning the latest “reverend eruption” that occurred at the Church in the last couple of days.

So which is it ObamaMessiah? The 20 years of hatred spewed forth at the church, or getting caught still supporting this so-called “church” after another “reverand eruption?”

After soaking up all that racist, hateful rhetoric for 20 years, all of a sudden he professes to disagree with the teachings? Oh – that’s right… he never heard those sermons. Seems like ObamaMesiah has a bad case of Attention Deficit Disorder.

Not to mention being as transparent as a saran wrap business suit, as he finally had to toss the “church” under the bus for fear of losing more votes.

ObamaMessiah, the consummate politician, just like all the rest.Related articles
