Russian oil rigs just 45 miles from Florida?
Cuba will allow Russia to look for oil and gas in its territorial waters. Environmentalists cringe, but the industry says its time for the US to look for more oil in the Gulf of Mexico, too.

President Obama: Withdraw citizen reporting program
August 6th, 2009

A troubling new citizen reporting program is being launched at the White House -– targeting those who oppose President Obama’s health care plan –- a program that can only stifle constitutionally-protected free speech.

In an official White House release posted by the White House Director of New Media, Macon Phillips claims that “[t]here is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there” both on the web and floating around in chain emails. Phillips states that “[s]ince we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”

This is a very disturbing attempt to stifle the free speech of Americans who have the constitutional right to express their opinion and concerns about health care. It’s a move designed to intimidate those who have legitimate concerns about the health care plan. And, worse, it turns the White House into some sort of self-appointed “speech police” -– urging Americans to monitor and report those who engage in “fishy” speech. What will the Obama Administration do with those names? Who will be “flagged” next?

CNN Poll: After Just 6 Months, More People View Obama's Presidency as a 'Failure' Than Bush's
CNN poll. Question three on the national survey of 1,136 adults (which includes an oversample of African-Americans) asks, "Do you consider the first six months of the Obama administration to be a success or a failure?"
Thirty-seven percent (37%) said they believe the Obama administration is a "failure," while 51% consider it a "success" and 11% say it's still "too soon to tell."
An identical question was asked of the Bush administration in an August 2001 CNN/Gallup/USA Today survey. At the time, 56% said the Bush administration was a "success" while only 32% considered it a "failure."

Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac could be split: Report
WASHINGTON: The US government could split troubled state-backed mortgage firms Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and place the firms' toxic assets in a
federal corporation, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

The deal could allow the financial giants, long lynchpins of the US housing market, to move forward unconstrained by troubled assets — easing still constricted credit markets with the hope of driving consumer spending.

Together, the two firms back 40% of all US home loans.

A "good bank, bad bank" structure was needed for the move, the chief regulator of the companies, James Lockhart, told the Post in an interview where he also announced he would step down later this month.
