Breakfast Scramble (Wednesday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
STFU, General, from David Nakamura and Javed Hamdar, Washington Post [1]

KABUL – Gen. David H. Petraeus on Tuesday denounced plans by a Florida church to burn copies of the Koran this weekend, saying the demonstration could “endanger troops” and damage the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan.

General with all due respect, you took  an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.   So butt out of domestic politics and mind your war.

Good luck with that, from Politico [2]:

John Podesta, president of the Center for American Progress and leader of Barack Obama’s presidential transition team, expects to see some “soul-searching” and “changes” in the White House after November’s elections.

With Democrats expected to lose dozens of seats in the midterms — and possibly control of Congress — Podesta believes Obama will have to make changes to adapt to the new political environment.

“After November, you’ll see some soul-searching and some changes particularly in the way that he’s talked to the American people and really communicated, particularly, I think, with the business community,” Podesta said Tuesday morning on MSNBC

You can’t search what you can not find, and nobody is going to find a soul at the Obama White House to search.

Fred knows number one from number two, from Politicio [3]:

“Obama: some people in DC ‘talk about me like a dog.'” [Fred] Thompson wrote on his Twitter feed (@FredThompson). “Maybe it’s because he keeps treating this country like a fire hydrant.”

Thompson’s tweet followed a number of critical swings at the president’s announced plan Monday to request $50 billion in additional infrastructure funds.

Gee Eric, I just hate to keep pounding my chest.   However Fred doss seem to know when to use a piss analogy rather than a scat one.

Did you mean genocide or gynocide, Jay Tea  Wizbang [4]:

Think about that. The pro-choice crowd touts abortion as the most important issue for women, the main thing that keeps women from being a slave, are now facing the uncomfortable fact that abortion is now being used as a de facto form of genocide against women.

This should come as no surprise. If one argues that abortion should always be legal, no matter the reason, then you’re going to have do accept that sometimes the reasons include “we don’t want a daughter, we want a son.” In fact, in a lot of cases around the world, that’s proving to be increasingly common.

While I do admit that a world with the cows, err the gender feminists does sound nice, a world without women would soon be world without people.
