http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/436220214452441088 Now that he’s finished watching “The Monuments Men,” President Obama finally has time to address the situation in Ukraine. Today at a summit in Toluca, Mexico, he issued what he probably figured was a pretty stern warning to the Ukrainian government: http://twitter.com/#!/MajorCBS/status/436222526927024128 http://twitter.com/#!/NewsBreaker/status/436218398884626432 The strongest possible terms? Hardly. http://twitter.com/#!/josephkoss/status/436221157893623809 What an absolute joke. Why would any country take a clown like him seriously? http://twitter.com/#!/jonbabad/status/436221582969552896 http://twitter.com/#!/seanagnew/status/436221444092329984 We’re pretty appalled.

http://twitter.com/#!/nanner63/status/473126752806383616 Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) isn’t the only legislator shocked and disappointed by the release of five senior Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss too is concerned with idea of the administration negotiating with terrorists. Though he said he’s pleased to join the American people in welcoming home Sgt.

Allen West offers history lesson to Hank Aaron after GOP/KKK comparison

http://twitter.com/#!/bbergeronlaw/status/454046224337760257 On the week of the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron’s 715th home run that broke Babe Ruth’s record, the baseball legend had some harsh words about Republican critics of President Obama: “We can talk about baseball. Talk about politics. Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated. “We have moved in the right direction, and there have been […]

http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/471680174724227073 Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall doesn’t really get what all the fuss is about as far as MSNBC’s Holocaust issues are concerned. Ronan Farrow’s “all my dates are like ‘Schindler’s List” remark? Whole lotta nothin’, if you ask him: http://twitter.com/#!/joshtpm/status/471676536849203200 Apparently Josh has spent the past several days living under a rock and missed Touré linking Holocaust survival to the “power of whiteness.” Anyway, Marshall, who has himself appeared on MSNBC multiple times, baselessly accused conservatives yesterday of comparing themselves to Jews persecuted by the Nazis: http://twitter.com/#!/joshtpm/status/471507321273987073 […]
