  • What you did not say was the following:

    Emerson said she thought the Europeans had been receptive to her colleague's message and described how Obama's historic November election had helped transform transatlantic relations for the better, seemingly overnight.

    "It's amazing to watch," she said, described partners with whom Washington has had "difficult discussions" suddenly declare that "we're excited about President Obama and we want to do everything we can."

    This was reported in Yahoo news.

    Remember, JoAnn Emerson represents Southeast Missouri and the owners (Rust Communications) of this newspaper and is a Republican. The owners of Rust Communications gave about $4600 to her during the last election. They also gave about $7200 to McCain. I have been unable to find any reporting about her trip in any of their papers except this one. They own most of the newspapers in Emerson's district.

I got a can of pledge beside my door for the 1st one that asks me to swear my loyalty to BO. My home is off limits to these (expletives). My loyalty is to my country and it's constitition, not an above his paygrade politician.
