http://video.foxnews.com/v/4326213/ McCain calls herself a socially liberal republican & gives Obama a passing grade C+

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/09/08/years-setbacks-looks-world-leader/

Here is what we can expect from the UN in the coming years.
–– how to restore "climate change” as a top global priority after the fiasco of last year’s Copenhagen summit;

–– how to continue to try to make global redistribution of wealth the real basis of that climate agenda, and widen the discussion further to encompass the idea of "global public goods”;

–– how to keep growing U.N. peacekeeping efforts into missions involved in the police, courts, legal systems and other aspects of strife-torn countries;

National sovereignty — meaning the refusal of major powers like India, China and the United States to go along with sweeping global agendas — was specifically indicted for the failure of the much ballyhooed Copenhagen summit on climate change. "National sovereignty remains supreme,” as one position paper noted.

Along with planting a new flag in the field of international financial regulation, the U.N. chiefs also contemplated the further growth of the U.N. as the world’s policeman. As another paper notes, U.N. peacekeeping operations "will soon have almost 17,000 United Nations police officers serving on four continents” — little more than two years after establishing what one papers calls the institutions "Standing Police Capacity.”


Reference to Obama burning the bible removed due to inconsistencies in news article

Uh, no. The Pentagon has acknowledged that, under the Bush administration, bibles written in pashto were confiscated from troops who were giving them to locals in an effort to evangelize. That's a big no-no. The bibles were thrown away on the base which happens to incinerate its garbage.

Troops who wish to keep bibles for them selves did, do and will continued to be allowed to do so. They just can't use their deployment as an opportunity to moonlight as a missionary, is all.

Social liberal = Dingbat

Megan McCain should be completely ignored unless she's naked and swinging from a stripper pole. The only reason she's getting her 15 minutes of fame is so she can get her shots in against Palin.

Sensationalist thread title is sensationalist.

This isn't DU. I don't need my news slanted. I'm intelligent enough to read between the lines and draw my only conclusions.

This is why we can't have nice things.
