As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Morning News || Thursday, April 28, 2011

President Obama today will announce members of his new national security team, placing CIA Director Leon Panetta at Defense and Gen. David Petraeus at CIA. Panetta is the quintessential Washington insider. Petraeus will lead a more militarized CIA.

Obama started trying to use the birther issue to his advantage on the campaign trail, making jokes about it during a fundraiser.

The writer of the book to be published next month, titled “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President,” plans to move ahead and makes no apologies. Some birthers questioned the long form certificate.

Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs took up his role as Outside Attack Dog by demanding to see Donald Trump’s tax returns.

In New York City last night, Obama sought to woo back Wall Street, which backed him in 2008 but is checking out the GOP for 2012. Obama was heckled repeatedly at one of his New York City fundraisers.

    • Nope. He’ll have the DoD demoralized and cut to the bone in no time flat. Panetta did as much damage as he could to the CIA during his tenure. What happens to bureaucrats when they fail at one job? Well, just promote them to a more important position. The CIA will be much better off under General Petraeus’ direction. Maybe the boss wants to take the general out of the picture for the 2012 election anyway. Just in case he gets a notion to run for president, you know.
