Via Right Wing Watch:
Pat Robertson today asked God to "deliver" the US from President Obama before it's too late. After implying that Obama is a Muslim, Robertson told 700 Club viewers: "We need to do something to pray to be delivered from this president. He is a disaster, an absolute disaster. Democrat, Republican or whatever, this country is into serious decline unless something dramatic is done about it."

Blast from the Past. At Daily Kos on this date in 2003Looting breaks out in Baghdad, British control looting in Basra:

They're happy today, because the Marines mean Saddam is gone. What happens when those same Marines have to give them orders directed from the new US governor of the province? Will they be happy then?

If this is liberation, why didn't they fight, and why did they loot their own city? No cops, no soldiers, just a power vacuum. What bothers me is what will they do when we try to impose not just basic order, but a military government.

There are so many armed people running around. They didn't surrender, they weren't killed. The US has to do something to get those weapons under control. There are armed fighters from all over the Arab world, armed Saddam loyalists, no chemical weapons found, Shia clerics and a 15,000 man guerrilla army.

Remember, the Catholics were happy to see the British Army in Belfast in 1969. They were there to protect tyhe Catholics from Protestant mobs. It only took weeks before the stones started flying.


Tweet of the Day:  

#RyanBudget says that if you make $1 million you get a $200,000 tax cut. Meanwhile the #BetterOffBudget is on the side of working families!

On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin walks us through new RAND data, the Tea Party vs "mainstream" Gop "civil war," and notes it's Jeb Bush's "reasonableness" act that makes him unacceptable to the base. Joan McCarter ponders whether the ACA might save you money on car insurance, too. We check in on non-happenings in ACA replacement, CIR, and UI, have another laugh at Vance McCallister, and shake our heads at the claim that Obama's black privilege is saving him from certain impeachment. Just to throw a little substance in the show, why, once again, they anticipate dissension in the ranks on the Ryan budget.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
