Morning Bits

Couldn’t have been more clear. “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that sanctions against Iran — largely pushed by President Barack Obama — have failed to stop that country’s nuclear program. Speaking with presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney at his side, Netanyahu said a ‘strong and credible military threat’ was needed on top of the sanctions to get Iran to make a change.”

Couldn’t have been written by Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) since he has no remorse. “How I was duped by Mrs. Assad.”

Couldn’t, unfortunately for him, be this amusing in the Republican primary. “Pawlenty’s pitch: Obama is ‘all foam and no beer.’”

Couldn’t be put better than this. Justice Antonin Scalia: “The Republicans have been looking for, you know, originalist and textualist and restrained judges for 50 years. And the Democrats have been looking for the opposite, for people who believe in Roe versus Wade. Why should it be a surprise that after, you know, assiduously trying to get people with these philosophies, they end up with this philosophies?”

Couldn’t believe the original story. Now it’s officially denied. “A senior Israeli official denied on Sunday a newspaper report that President Barack Obama’s national security adviser had briefed Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on a U.S. contingency plan to attack Iran should diplomacy fail to curb its nuclear program.” Another lame attempt by left-leaning Ha’aretz to bolster Obama.

Couldn’t make this up. “The nanny state is going after moms. Mayor Bloomberg is pushing hospitals to hide their baby formula behind locked doors so more new mothers will breast-feed.”

Couldn’t be any more appealing. Brava for the first lady.
