Welcome to the twelfth edition in the series of the Water Cooler – appears every Sunday on this blog. This feature will highlight what’s hot, topical and up for discussion.

Here we go.

Politics

The speech at West Point was disappointing. Obama has pledged to send 30,000 more troops to the Afghan war. Here is a President who campaigned with his whole heart and who convinced many around the world that he would have ended the war. In his speech Obama mentioned he was against the war initially but with him being in office his actions shows the opposite.

There is no way anyone can support this war at this time. It has been going on for who knows when and no one knows for sure when it will all end because you don’t end a war in a night. The withdrawal of the thousands of troops is another war in itself and a new process. I support conservatives and Republican beliefs sometimes and support those issues important to Democrats alike. However, this decision to continue a war goes against everything Obama stands for. His support to continue the war pushes America in a deeper recession and those developing countries and developed ones that depend on the growth of the USA are also terrified about their future. The situation of skyrocketing unemployment figures and the housing sector is going to get worse. The fact is the trillions of dollars that could be spent on supporting national security (God Bless Lou Dobbs’ heart), generating small businesses, getting people back to work etc those monies are shipped overseas to support a losing war. No one expects the USA to win the fight against terrorism. They are fighting ideologies and a radical movement that will continue indefinitely. I would support a decision to end the war and secure your own borders because we all know, not even the borders of the USA are secure.

The effects this will have on Obama will be disastrous. This week I read a report where Angelina Jolie spoke out against Obama being a one term President. When you have Jolie making a statement like that – things are bad. It’s not a statement that you laugh at, it may be reality. Obama needs to take stock of the situation. What we are seeing being played out is straight politics. Whether that will hurt Americans in the future, who knows? As a generation we need to make decisions that the future generations will look back and say they did the right thing.

What would we do without a Cheetah I mean Tiger Woods?

Red turns him on. Just do it!

The drama surrounding Tiger Woods gets deeper and deeper and wider and deeper and wider. This week was a roller coaster ride for the best golfer we have ever seen in our lifetime. Let me first start out by saying that Tiger Woods will go down. There is no way he can keep all of his endorsements. Tiger Woods is a brand and that brand in public opinion has been tarnished, dragged in the tabloids dirt and there is no way he can recover from this one. When you project an image of ‘the best’ and ‘refinement’ and when those qualities are questioned, you have a problem.

What a pity! To have everything the world could offer and live a nasty lie, it makes you look silly. I do not think she will come out supporting him. Instead, I hope she divorces his ass, receive the millions she is worth and then have those endorsement deals end. All of this is a sideshow. My concern is about the children because we never can underestimate the impact this will have on the kids for their entire lives. To have their father cheat on their mother not only once but the tens of mistresses that are coming forward and forward I want them to.

No matter how it’s sweet to hear how good and endowed he is and his freakiness in bed that does not comfort the many lives he has wrecked. His family must be hurt, not to mention his immediate. This is a message to all those who live a public life. You do not use the media to promote yourself and then blame it when you have suffered pain. I want the media to drench the internet with his messy lifestyle and ensure this guy does not benefit in the future.

I overheard people talking this week about how wicked the media is and they should all leave him alone. Leave him alone for what! I also blame his wife.

Love & Relationship

I blame his wife for not doing enough. Many men and women enter marriages and they are clueless. Through the mistresses that have come forward we are learning how freaky Tiger can be. I have no problem with someone being freaky and wanting to explore. If Tiger’s wife Elin is a holy-ghost, spirit filled, Christian, conservative in bed then we know why Tiger left the matrimonial home to satisfy his needs. The days are gone and times have changed, you better be willing to satisfy your partner or suffer like many other wives and husbands who leave their partners to satisfy themselves. One of the mistresses from Tiger’s past reveals he like red underwear and how he likes it in different places. It may be too much information but this whole story shows a man who is desperate for love or he loves a good time. My advice to dating and married couples are you better be willing to satisfy your partner, change things up, mix things up, go somewhere else, because God knows if you won’t someone else will. The world may come crashing in or cashing in when you find out.

HOLD ON! How could I have forgotten other cheaters. You remember Kobe who when he cheated on his wife bought a house for her finger – the ring. Well I have a suggestion for Tiger Woods. This song was leaked to the internet and I think it is so appropriate for Woods now. The song is by Alicia Keys feat Beyonce – Put it in a love song.

Extra

How could we foget? The hungry wanna be celebrities who crashed Obama’s party. I do not think they should be charged for anything. They should have been turned away and not allowed to enter the area. I like SNL’s take on the issue and who knows what you will see in the video could have gone down at the Whitehouse.

Be kind one to another. Sharing is caring.

PALIN CABINET

Palin

Oprah

Sarah Palin’s interview with Oprah Winfrey will be a hit. It will have the media talking for the next two weeks and beyond. The political pundits who spewed hate against this lady will cringe when their deepest fears are realized when she inevitably runs for President the next time around. Please clear the thought of a second term for Obama. The economic situation will change all those dreams. The fact is Sarah Palin represents to the ‘tee’ the ideal Republican Party candidate and could be a force to reckon with if she makes that decision to do the right thing. I am compassionate to those folks who today think Palin is not dignified or unqualified to serve as President. That would mean the others who served and is serving in that same position aren’t worthy themselves. The Palin brand will see traction in the coming years and it gives her more time to create the right image for the post. Do not forget a day in politics is a long time.

Obama

So Obama faces a decision to send more troops to the war torn Middle East country. This decision will define his presidency and I can’t wait to what is going to come of it. Obama campaigned to end the war. I don’t know if this is a broken promise but I would have loved to see him with the balls to leave Afghanistan and really bring about that change he preached – campaign and joked about.

I got to watch The Kardashians yesterday – the one featuring the infamous wedding with Khloe and Lamar. I am a fan of the show – have always been. Don’t we love the drama? There is one thing I have noticed from the show. Of all the drama we have known the family to deliver you get the picture family values are at the foundation of this family. Of course, we can imagine the disgust and quarrels a family goes through when someone plans to get married after meeting the other under a month. We normally think the person is crazy because of the sudden decision. All in all, families are best when they come together and share the joy of others.

Love & Relationship

The tip for the week is “Do not nag your partner.” Quit it.

So recently we saw where Sarah Palin resigned from her governor position in Alaska. This huge discussion is on whether she should have resigned or not is making the rounds. She is also be flogged in the media for resigning with a more than a year left to serve.

PALIN CABINETThe lines are drawn in the sand and what will you do: support Palin or hit against her?

I will take the side of supporting Palin’s decision to step down as governor of Alaska. I should note that Palin has been a stellar governor, saving her state in these harsh economic times. But some claim this is because her state has oil. I would agree with that point but having oil isn’t enough. Palin is able to manger the state’s affairs making huge investments in education and security which are of paramount interest.

States like California who are having trouble these days should take a leaf out of Palin’s book to manage their state effectively. Her track record as a governor is amazing but many people do not hear about her record as a manager and leader.

Sarah Palin’s move to step aside from her position in Alaska makes some Presidential hopefuls fearful in their steps. Men like Romney and Huckabee and the many others are shaking as they are aware of the power Palin has to energize a crowd which they aren’t able to do. She has personality, wit, beauty, power, experience as a leader etc. People will begin to listen to Palin more as Obama’s actions in the Whitehouse make the American economy worse. As the democrats advance their agenda on higher taxes and a health care system the Obama led administration will fail thus making any move by Republicans a winner and will energize voters. There is a book deal underway and once this book goes ‘bestseller’ Palin will have written a part of the story for 2012.

Let me not get ahead of myself though what if Palin does not run for President in 2012. What will be certain is that any candidate she decides to support will get some of her die heart supporters as well. This woman’s ability to energize and persuade should not be underestimated and I believe that is why she is being ridiculed so much because people are very afraid of the Palin brand. All she needs is a great team behind her from strategizing to promoting her positively in the media.

She is a mother, an abused woman in the media and when that hits back voters do not take it likely and will benefit her more.

Right now it is a wait and see situation. What is certain for sure whatever move she makes the media will be all over it. She excites many, clearly.
