Attacker shot on scene, succumbs to wounds; Of the victims, four moderately wounded, one lightly so.12:38 27.11.15 | 0 comments
Netanyahu arrived during what the Republicans -- the far, far right that believes only in Fox News -- described as the "mother of all political battles", and "the Waterloo" of the Obama administration: the effort to pass a mild health-care reform bill. (Note that Israel is a model for the health care system the US should have. We've been trying since Harry Truman) All attention focused on health reform...turn on the TV, pick up a paper, listen to the radio, and there was heralth care. The nuclear arms reduction agreement with Russia got very little attention, even after it was signed. The right-wing fanatics lost their Waterloo -- Obama appears to be Wellington and Glen Beck / Rush Limbaugh / John Boehner appear as Bonaparte. This is a Big Deal. It's amazing that Obama took time even to meet with Netanyahu. Otherwise, he worked 20 hours a day on healthcare.
