French President Nicholas Sarkozy attacked at public appearance (with video)

The headline:  Sarkozy assaulted at public appearance

The link: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/envoy/sarkozy-assaulted-public-appearance-192546785.html

The summary:  French President Nicholas Sarkozy was grabbed at his shoulder and pulled toward a barricade by an unarmed man at a recent public appearance in the French town of Brax.  The president was unharmed and resumed shaking hands with the public shortly thereafter.

The reaction:  Did you see how quickly security had this guy on the ground?  I love Sarkozy’s reaction.  Within about 30 seconds, he’s back to smiling and greeting people again.  Good for him!

The assailant’s motives are still unknown but my guess is he’s just a relatively average French citizen who’s frustrated with something or other.

YouTube video of UFO “fleet” over London goes viral (with video)

The headline:  UFOs seen in London skies: viral video spotlight

The link:  http://beta.news.yahoo.com/ufos-seen-london-skies-viral-video-spotlight-104311550.html

The summary:  A viral video has appeared on YouTube supposedly showing a fleet of UFOs and their mothership hovering over London recently.

The reaction:  It’s a fun video to watch but it smells of hoax.

Like the article suggests, I wonder if this is part of some promotional campaign or is the product of some kid and his computer.  Just look at the video or more importantly listen to the people taking this video.  They don’t seem particularly in awe, surprised, scared or show any emotion I imagine I would if I suddenly saw a fleet of UFOs flying right over my head.  I imagine the truth will come out shortly.

Check it out for yourself…

The headline:  Photos show three dead men at bin Laden raid house

The link:  http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/us_binladen_pakistan_photos

The summary:  Reuters has released several photos of unidentified men who were killed in the raid that captured Osama bin Laden.

The reaction:  If you’re into that type of thing, the photos are quite graphic but they do give you some insight into how deadly the raid became.  I suppose there will always be a demand for this type of thing.

If you’re interested, you can find the photos here.

The headline:  Michelle Obama does ‘Dougie’ dance at kids’ anti-obesity event; Does the Running Man, Cabbage Patch

The summary:  First Lady Michelle Obama showed up at a Washington D.C. middle school’s Let’s Move event and was videotaped dancing “The Dougie” and “The Running Man” with students.

The reaction:  The First Lady has a few moves!  Certainly better than her husband’s attempts.

I like Michelle Obama.  I think she’s shown some personality that’s been lacking amongst first ladies recently.  I think her Let’s Move initiative is a worthy cause and I hope she gets out there more and keeps dancing.

The headline:  Video shows man shooting at police before being killed

The link:  http://host.madison.com/news/local/crime_and_courts/9d6ff154-765e-11e0-97f6-001cc4c002e0.html

The summary:  A Wisconsin man is dead after exchanging gunfire at police officers during a traffic stop while the police dash cam records the entire event.

The reaction:  My initial reaction was that there were an awful lot of shots being fired.  I don’t know who was doing most of the firing but someone was bound to end up dead with that many shots flying around.  But if you’re going to open fire on police, you ought to expect the worst.

Rush Limbaugh: “Thank God for President Obama”

The headline:  Rush Limbaugh: “Thank God for President Obama”

The link:  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20058973-503544.html?tag=contentMain;contentBody

The summary:  In a surprising move, conservative political talk show host Rush Limbaugh took the first several moments of his radio program to praise President Obama for his actions in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

The reaction:  It’s not often you’ll hear a conservative like Rush Limbaugh praising Barack Obama but it happened on Monday.

I think there is a lot of praise to be handed out for the success of the operation and Limbaugh clearly understands the importance of what happened in Pakistan.

Agree or disagree with his viewpoints, it’s nice to see a commentator like Limbaugh “cross the lines” so to speak to praise a job well done.
