HOT5 Daily 7/8/2009

1. "‘Green light’ for an ‘air raid’ is not enough"More about any possible Israeli strike on Iran.

Representative Sample: Destroying the Iranian nuclear complex will require not an “air raid” but a prolonged air campaign. Those who have in mind Israel’s 1981 strike on Iraq’s reactor at Tuwaitha and the 2007 strike against Syria’s reactor at Dayr az-Zawr do not appreciate the scope and dispersion of Iran’s nuclear complex.

2. "Obamacare: Only The Strong Will Survive II" The government will decide if its really worth wasting resources on you.

Representative Sample: I think we have a tag line for Obamacare that will rightly and accurately reflect what it means for average Americans. It means if you are not strong or fit (which is most of us), then you will probably not survive the rationed care.

3. "Left, Right & Center" An interesting libertarian viewpoint.

Representative Sample: I make a distinction between liberty rights and benefits rights. Liberty rights are the rights we have not to have our liberties taken away from us: the right to believe what we want, the right to free speech, the right to protest, the right to practice whatever religion we want (or even not to practice any religion at all!), the right to own private property, the right to a fair trial, etc.

4. "Sarah Palin Martyred for the Cause of Conservatism" You've got to be kidding. This is a prime example of the sort of crazed Palin-worship found among much of the GOP base.

Representative Sample:While watching Sarah Palin’s resignation speech, I thought, who is this amazing woman? What planet did she come from? Will there ever be anyone like her? Once again, I was blown away by her power, grace, character and courage.

5. "U.S. Knocks Gripen out of India Comp. via Israel" Hard to tell if this is a good or bad thing. 

Representative Sample: Israeli aircraft industries (IAI) is being pressured by the U.S. not to help with the development of the new-gen Saab Gripen which is supposed to be part of India’s consideration for its next fighter jet.
