I wonder if he's also in favor of UAW workers and UAW executives giving back their grossly overpaid wages and salaries?
NO, PROBABLY NOT!

Iran has now produced roughly enough nuclear material to make a single atom bomb, according to nuclear experts analyzing the latest report from global atomic inspectors. (A SINGLE BOMB! AND HERE I THOUGHT THEY WERE CAPABLE OF ACTUALLY DOING SOME DAMAGE. TONIGHT TEL-AVIV CAN SLEEP AT EASE)
The figures detailing Iran's progress were contained in a routine update on Wednesday from the International Atomic Energy Agency, which has been conducting inspections of the country's main nuclear plant at Natanz. The report concluded that as of early this month, Iran had made 630 kilograms, or about 1,390 pounds, of low-enriched uranium.
Several experts said that was enough for a bomb, but they cautioned that the milestone was mostly symbolic, because Iran would have to take additional steps.(DID HE SAY SYMBOLIC? OH, THAT MAKES ME FEEL MORE AT EASE) Not only would it have to breach its international agreements and kick out the inspectors, but it would also have to further purify the fuel and put it into a warhead design — a technical advance that Western experts are unsure Iran has yet achieved. (SO THEY'LL ACHIEVE IT IN WHAT, 3 MONTHS?)
"They clearly have enough material for a bomb," said Richard Garwin, a top nuclear physicist who helped invent the hydrogen bomb and has advised Washington for decades. "They know how to do the enrichment. Whether they know how to design a bomb, well, that's another matter." (NO PROBLEM. I'M SURE THEY AREN'T CAPABLE OF FINDING ANYONE THAT CAN ASSIST THEM WITH THAT)
MR. PRESIDENT, NOW YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO TALK TO THE IRANIANS ABOUT. OBVIOUSLY WITHOUT PRECONDITIONS.................RIGHT?

I'm sure Tom will be bringing his WOLD-CLASS LOBBYING WIFE
WHAT A JOKE!
The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites Wednesday, that Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
Al-Zawahri also called Obama—along with secretaries of state Collin Powell and Condoleezza Rice—"house negroes."
Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term "abeed al-beit," which literally translates as "house slaves." But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as "house negroes."
The 11-minute 23-second video features the audio message by al-Zawahri, who appears only in a still image, along with other images, including one of Obama wearing a Jewish skullcap as he meets with Jewish leaders.
Al-Zawahri said Obama's election has not changed American policies he said are aimed at oppressing Muslims and others.
"America has put on a new face, but its heart full of hate, mind drowning in greed, and spirit which spreads evil, murder, repression and despotism continue to be the same as always," the deputy of al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden said.
He said Obama's plan to shift troops to Afghanistan is doomed to failure, because Afghans will resist.
"Be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them," he said.
Al-Zawahri did not threaten specific attacks, but warned Obama that he was "facing a Jihadi (holy war) awakening and renaissance which is shaking the pillars of the entire Islamic world; and this is the fact which you and your government and country refuse to recognize and pretend not to see."
He said Obama's victory showed Americans acknowledged that President George W. Bush's policies were a failure and that the result was an "admission of defeat in Iraq."
But Obama's professions of support for Israel during the election campaign "confirmed to the Ummah (Islamic world) that you have chosen a stance of hostility to Islam and Muslims," al-Zawahri said.
Mr. President Elect, is it time to sit down an talk to this guy???

When Daley made the announcement, workers around the city felt a chill, and they are wondering who will be laid off next.
The news is especially alarming because the discussion concerns not just city jobs, but the private sector. Thus, it seems the City That Works is about to become the city that gets laid off.

They retire to The Oval Office for private 1 on 1 conversation................without staff.
Within hours, The New York Times and AP are detailing their conversations about the auto industry, health care, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
So basically, Obama sat down with his advisers after the Oval Office meeting. He shared with them the private conversation, and the Obama advisers proceeded to inform their friends in the MSM.
A Bush senior adviser commented that: "Senator Obama may not be familiar with a long-standing tradition of presidents holding their private conversations, private,"
This incoming bunch might make the Clinton White House look classy!

Whatever the incoming Obama administration's position on Israel may be, it will not be more supportive of the country than the Bush administration has been.
If Israel's next prime minister intends to prevent Iran from acquiring the means to implement its stated aim of destroying Israel, he or she must be prepared to stand up to America. Indeed, the greatest diplomatic challenge he or she will likely face will be standing up to a popular new President Obama, supported by large Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress and the overwhelming majority of American Jewish voters.
Over the past few days, the two contenders for premiership — Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu — have demonstrated their starkly contrasting views of how to deal with a potentially hostile administration in Washington. Reacting to Obama's electoral victory on Wednesday, Livni made clear that from her perspective, the best way to deal with an unfriendly White House is to preemptively surrender Israel's national interests.
In her words, Israel's election results "must reflect the country's interest in advancing the peace process, otherwise the international community, headed by the US, will try and push us in this direction."
For their part, Netanyahu and Likud have shown that if defending Israel's national interests requires a confrontation with Washington, they will not shy away from it. Last week, Netanyahu's surrogate MK Yuval Steinitz informed both US presidential campaigns that in the event that outgoing Prime Minister Ehud Olmert pledges to surrender the Golan Heights to Syria, a Likud-led government will not respect his pledge.
