http://twitter.com/#!/SundevilSal/status/436524466311426048 President Obama “strongly condemns” the “unacceptable violence” in Ukraine, but he hasn’t really said much about what’s happening in Venezuela. Unlike Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who’s actually doing something about it. Just look: http://twitter.com/#!/DWStweets/status/436523922390261760 OK, well, at least she seems to be aware of the deadly violence in Venezuela. Maybe she could pass the […]

http://twitter.com/#!/BigEdsBlog/status/507930477161119744 Is President Obama finally developing an ISIS strategy that he’s been heavily criticized for lacking? http://twitter.com/#!/edhenryTV/status/507923711643500544 Well, maybe.
