Requires “A Different Set of Skills”?

First off, Chuckie HAS no skills. That’s a drawback.

But, secondly, I have NO IDEA WHERE Obama’s going to dredge up a more malleable mushroom than this guy.

Hagel Said to Be Stepping Down as Defense Chief Under Pressure

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is stepping down under pressure, the first cabinet-level casualty of the collapse of President Obama’s Democratic majority in the Senate and a beleaguered national security team that has struggled to stay ahead of an onslaught of global crises.

…The officials described Mr. Obama’s decision to remove Mr. Hagel, 68, as a recognition that the threat from the Islamic State would require a different kind of skills than those that Mr. Hagel was brought on to employ. A Republican with military experience who was skeptical about the Iraq war, Mr. Hagel came in to manage the Afghanistan combat withdrawal and the shrinking Pentagon budget in the era of budget sequestration.

But now “the next couple of years will demand a different kind of focus,” one administration official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. He insisted that Mr. Hagel was not fired, saying that he initiated discussions about his future two weeks ago with the president, and that the two men mutually agreed that it was time for him to leave.

ths update: I see people feel as I do… ;)

Dude

It was SUMPTHIN’.

Spam Of The Day

Or at least I think it’s spam

I lustrous up the whole cup OF white-colored wine beverage by myself ahead we all hit the exact bar council! going to had perhaps 3 double vodka and water at a drink station and a few well known look.

It may in fact be the transcript of my weekend.

The Day Before Thanksgiving

What could possibly go wrong?

GIVEN THE POTENTIAL FOR MAJOR TRAVEL DISRUPTION DURING THE PEAK PRE THANKSGIVING TRAVEL PERIOD ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY…THE FORECAST FOR THIS STORM IS QUITE CRUCIAL. A SIGNIFICANT CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP IN THE EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO ON TUESDAY EVENING AND THEN RIDE UP ALONG THE EAST COAST ON WEDNESDAY. A BAND OF SIGNIFICANT QPF IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP WITHIN THE ENTRANCE REGION OF A 200 KT 250 MB JET OVER THE NORTHEAST. NOT UNEXPECTEDLY…THERE ARE QUITE A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT SOLUTIONS WITH VERY DIFFERENT IMPACTS. RIGHT NOW…THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES INVOLVE WHETHER THE STORM BECOMES RATHER INTENSE ON A SLIGHTLY MORE WESTERLY TRACK VERSUS A SLIGHTLY WEAKER MORE EASTERLY TRACK…THOUGH THERE MAY ME A TREND TOWARD SOME MIDDLE GROUND BETWEEN THESE FORECASTS. IN EITHER EVENT…SIGNIFICANT SNOW IS POSSIBLE ALONG THE I95 CORRIDOR..WHETHER OR NOT IT IS ALONG THE CORRIDOR OR SLIGHTLY WESTWARD. THE DETERMINISTIC FORECAST MADE SHOWED THE HEAVIEST SNOW JUST INLAND WITH SOME ACCUMULATIONS IN THE BIG CITIES REFLECTING A COMBINATION OF RAIN CHANGING TO SNOW.

SNOW IS EXPECTED TO INITIALLY DEVELOP ALONG THE APPALACHIANS ON
TUESDAY EVENING/NIGHT…POSSIBLY AS FAR SOUTH AS THE HIGHER
ELEVATIONS OF NORTHEAST GEORGIA ACROSS NW SOUTH CAROLINA/WESTERN
NORTH CAROLINA AND WESTERN VIRGINIA AND EASTERN WEST VIRGINIA.
SNOW AND COASTAL RAIN SHOULD CONTINUE TO SPREAD NORTHEASTWARD
ACROSS THE REST OF THE EASTERN SEABOARD ON WEDNESDAY/DAY 3…THE
PEAK OF THE PRE HOLIDAY TRAVEL AND THEN END ACROSS EASTERN MAINE
ON THANKSGIVING MORNING.

HOWEVER…THIS SCENARIO IS MERELY ONE OF MANY THAT TYPIFY
POTENTIAL SIGNIFICANT SNOW EVENTS ALONG THE EAST COAST.

All this snow is PROOF of Gerbil Warmening.

or something.

Even SNL Is Starting To Wake Up

It’s pretty accurate, brutal…and about 6 years too late.

Update: meh, I see NBC has blocked the video. Oh well, it’s also here.

Teach Seals Not To Rape

Every time I think about our government I feel like a penguin

Things are heating up in the cold climes of the sub-Antarctic. On a remote, and mostly desolate island, seals have been caught engaging in an extreme form of sexual behaviour.

Specifically, they have been trying to have sex with penguins.

More than one fur seal has been caught in the act, on more than one occasion.
And it’s all been captured on film, with details being published in the journal Polar Biology.

The video, well, you have been warned…

Constitution? Separation Of Powers?

What a pathetic joke.

What’d Obama Call Him?

“Some advisor who never worked on our staff”? Right after ~ of COURSE ~ he’d “just heard about this.

I think we need to have the Prezzle checked out for a bump on the head à la Hilary’s forgetful spells…

Schmaybe he took a tumble doing all that bowing overseas.

If We Use the WayBack Machine, You’ll Remember…

…he was mouthing constitutional platitudes as his excuses then.

…”From ’08 to 2010, [Obama] had the House, the Senate, and the White House,” Gowdy said to several reporters on Capitol Hill on Friday, “and he didn’t do a damn thing about immigration reform, so if he could take two years to do nothing, I would think he could give this new Congress maybe three months? Six months?”

No, Sorry CNN

You didn’t get pasted in the mid-terms because of Freemasons sharing information on Twitter for god’s sake

Washington (CNN) — Republicans and outside groups used anonymous Twitter accounts to share internal polling data ahead of the midterm elections, CNN has learned, a practice that raises questions about whether they violated campaign finance laws that prohibit coordination.
The Twitter accounts were hidden in plain sight. The profiles were publicly available but meaningless without knowledge of how to find them and decode the information, according to a source with knowledge of the activities.
The practice is the latest effort in the quest by political operatives to exploit the murky world of campaign finance laws at a time when limits on spending in politics are eroding and regulators are being defanged.

I find it so pathetic that the Dems are so up in arms that the polls they commissioned and took ahead of the election were wrong…the polls, mind you, not, say, their awful policies.

But yes, of course, so now the rallying cry will be “Government control of da Interwebz is needed to keep us Free!”

“Don’t Cry”

“Obama will still give you free condoms.”

Wabs Are Just The Bestest

I admit it, this (via Ace) brought back memories and I cried. But what a schweet fun loving boy!

The full-bore belly giggles from the child are priceless.

Town: Tiger on loose spotted near Disneyland Paris

PARIS (AP) — French police are using a helicopter to search for a young tiger which was said to be on the loose near Disneyland Paris.

…Town authorities said in a statement that police and rescue squads are on the scene and had roped off a security perimeter.
