Short and simple…. we know that Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta are planning on leaving their posts as Obama begins his second term.
So how safe will you feel when Obama nominates Ambassador Susan Rice to be Secretary of State and Sen. John Kerry to take over at the Pentagon?
Hillary and Kerry Push Law of Sea Treaty in Latest Attempt to Take Away US Sovereignty, One Piece @ A Time

Geopolitics: The administration begins the push for ratification of a 1982 treaty that would end America’s sovereignty on the high seas, limit our freedoms on land and speed up the global redistribution of wealth and power.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told Sen. John Kerry’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee last Wednesday that the freedom of the sea once guaranteed by the British Royal Navy and then the U.S. Navy should be in the hands of United Nations bureaucrats in Montego Bay, Jamaica, enforcers of the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) he said we must ratify.
It used to be that a carrier battle group led by 90,000 tons of American diplomacy was sufficient to ensure that no nation could threaten our freedom of navigation and that of other countries.
But the nation whose motto was “we win, they lose” under President Reagan is replacing it with President Obama’s “mother, may we?”
“If we are not a party to this treaty and can’t deal with it at the table, then we have to deal with it at sea with our naval power, and once that happens, we clearly increase the risk for confrontation,” Panetta told members of the committee.
Once upon a time, other nations were afraid of us; now we’re afraid of them. (emphasis added)

Politico) – Barack Obama’s aides and advisers are preparing to center the president’s re-election campaign on a ferocious personal assault on Mitt Romney’s character and business background, a strategy grounded in the early stage expectation that the former Massachusetts governor is the likely GOP nominee.
The dramatic and unabashedly negative turn is the product of political reality. Obama remains personally popular, but pluralities in recent polling disapprove of his handling of his job and Americans fear the country is on the wrong track. His aides are increasingly resigned to running for re-election in a glum nation. And so the candidate who ran on “hope” in 2008 has little choice four years later but to run a slashing, personal campaign aimed at disqualifying his likeliest opponent.
In a move that will make some Democrats shudder, Obama’s high command has even studied President Bush’s 2004 takedown of Sen. John F. Kerry, a senior campaign adviser told POLITICO, for clues on how a president with middling approval ratings can defeat a challenger.
“Unless things change and Obama can run on accomplishments, he will have to kill Romney,” said a prominent Democratic strategist aligned with the White House.
The onslaught would have two aspects. The first is personal: Obama’s re-elect will portray the public Romney as inauthentic, unprincipled and, in a word used repeatedly by Obama’s advisers in about a dozen interviews, “weird.”
Sen. John Kerry: Media has a Responsibility to NOT Give Tea Party Movement “Equal Time” as they do “Legitimate Ideas”

from Real Clear Politics:
SEN. JOHN KERRY: “And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.”
“It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t?”

So which elected officials own stakes in full-body scanning machines now in more than 60 U.S. airports? And what are those individual investments worth?
We still can’t connect the dots to say that, because these Congressmen invested in these tech companies, than, ipso facto, those scanners were then put in place at airports across the country, now the subject of controversy.
But the Center for Responsive Politics says it’s done the legwork and after reviewing the most recent personal financial disclosure filings, found eight members of Congress — three Democrats and five Republicans – who owned at least $2,000 worth of stock in L-3 Communications, which is a government contractor purportedly involved in the full-body scanning machines.
The watchdog group says Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) owns the most stock in L-3 Communications — with a minimum investment of at least $500,000 and a maximum value of $1 million. Congressional financial disclosure forms allow Congressmen to report their assets in broad ranges.
However, that L-3 Communications stock is owned by his wife, Teresa Heinz, the Center says.
It also says that Republican Reps. Michael Castle (R-Del.) and Michael McCaul (R-Texas) “both disclosed possessing between $16,002 and $65,000 worth of L-3 Communications stock in 2009.”

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal’s service at the height of the Vietnam War appears just as glorious. It turns out that he may have helped organize a Toys for Tots drive as a member of the Marine Corps Reserve, according to the New York Times. This task, among other stateside ones, became in Blumenthal’s telling over the years “service in Vietnam.” He says now that he simply misspoke — that he meant to say he served “during” the Vietnam war, not “in” the Vietnam war.
Perhaps this marks a weird form of progress for Democrats: they have gone from spitting on Vietnam War veterans to impersonating them. John Kerry watched approvingly as disgruntled Vietnam War veterans hurled their medals at the White House in the 1970s (though his own medals were neatly tucked away for later use), and most liberal politicians speak about Vietnam as an immoral war. But in recent years they have wanted in on it. It has gone from a deleted memory to a recovered one. Blumenthal numbered himself among the spat upon — “I remember the taunts, the insults, sometimes even physical abuse.”

The senior Senator from Massachusetts said it with a straight face. He said it like he meant it. And he said it like the “voice of the people” should not be heard:
“I’m no stranger to hard fought campaigns, but what we’ve seen in the past few days is way over the line and reminiscent of the dangerous atmosphere of Sarah Palin’s 2008 campaign rallies,” Kerry said Monday. “This is not how democracy works in Massachusetts.”
Kerry suggested that the intense Brown supporters that have flowed into the Bay State have no place in Massachusetts politics.
“Scott Brown needs to speak up and get his out of state tea party supporters under control,” Kerry said. “In Massachusetts, we fight hard and win elections on the issues and on our differences, not with bullying and threats.”
I guess it is OK for ACORN and SEIU to descend on the state for their bullying tactics on behalf of the Democrats!

Did you see this video of someone in the Coakley campaign pushing down a reporter from the Weekly Standard?? Video at end of story.
Update: DSCC spokesman says “pushing incident” is a “GOP Dirty Trick”:
A spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is describing the video above, which shows a Weekly Standard reporter getting pushed around by a DSCC consultant, Michael Meehan, as a “dirty trick” by “Washington Republicans.”
DSCC spokesman Eric Schultz refused to go into detail about the incident, or to criticize Meehan, who confronted reporter John McCormack, in McCormack’s telling, after the reporter followed candidate Martha Coakley down the street asking unwelcome questions.
Meehan is a veteran Democratic staffer, Bostonian, and Obama appointee to the Broadcasting Board of Governors. But friends said they found the video both inappropriate and out of character.
“It is no surprise that Washington Republicans are trying to use every dirty trick they have to throw the Coakley campaign off their stride, but we are determined to end this campaign talking about the issues that matter to voters, like creating jobs and lowering middle class taxes,” said Schultz in a written statement.
