    Funny, last year's rally was bi-partisan
    On a sunny afternoon on Monday, September 24, 2007, more than 20,000 people gathered from all over the country at the Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza across from the United Nations in New York to protest the appearance of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations General Assembly. Among the crowd of demonstrators were many prominent political and religious figures of all persuasions.

    Rally speakers included Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni; U.S. Senator Bob Menendez; U.S. Representatives Anthony Weiner, Jerrold Nadler, Carolyn Maloney, and Eliot Engel; New Jersey Congressman Scott Garrett; former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Richard Holbrooke; New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn; sister of a hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 pilot, Debra Burlingame; Karnit Goldwasser, wife of kidnapped Israeli solider Ehud Goldwasser; and Dorothy Tananbaum, chair of UJA-Federation of New York's Commission on Jewish Identity and Renewal.

    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    More like Palin would upstage Hillary. Hillary wants Obama to lose so she can run in 012 or 016.

    Maybe we should just leave everybody alone unless they are a significant threat to us.

    If Mexico and Canada were invaded, the US would be pretty jumpy right now too. Don't forget Iran helped Bush after 9/11.

    My two cents:

    Barry cannot risk a "smackdown" between Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin. It would make him look like the weak effete that he is and it would make Hillary look like the real candidate that she should have been.

    Barry has been tightly controlling when and how Hillary appears and to whom. I'll bet it was Barry's people that told her to step down.

    I am wondering why Obama hasn't issued a statement on this; it's all over the news.
