Tamil Nadu leaders welcome Rajinikanth

Political leaders in Tamil Nadu on Sunday welcomed actor Rajinikanth’s entry into politics and his decision to contest the next Assembly elections.

DMK leader M.K. Stalin said Rajinikanth had finally put a full stop to the expectations of his fans but asserted that the DMK was not bothered by the actor’s political plunge. Chief Minister K. Palaniswami, whose ruling faction suffered a shock defeat in the R.K. Nagar Assembly constituency, said anyone was free to enter politics in a democracy. Palaniswami’s rival T.T.V. Dinakaran, who was elected from R.K. Nagar by a whopping margin, also hailed Rajinikanth’s decision. On Sunday, Rajinikanth said he would practice “spiritual politics” and contest all the 234 Assembly seats in the next elections. He said his entry into politics was a “compulsion of time”. Tamil Nadu BJP chief Tamilisai Soundararajan welcomed Rajinikantha’s decision and hoped he would support the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha election. State Congress President S. Thirunavukkarasar pointed out that the actor had not come into politics fully and his comment that the system was rotten was aimed at the ruling AIADMK. Political analyst Jhon Arokiasamy told IANS: “Urging his fans not to comment on the political situation till the party is floated shows that Rajinikanth wants to see through safely his two upcoming movies. “His main task now is to set up the party infrastructure across the state, reactivating many of his fan clubs and converting them into a political force.” Arokiasamy added: “What Rajinikanth’s announcement will be doing is to increase the perception that the influence of two Dravidian parties – AIADMK and DMK – in Tamil Nadu is on the decline.” (IANS) // ]]>

Clinton ‘Loves’ Proposal of Appointing Obama to Supreme Court as POTUS

a $787 billion stimulus law that was passed that same day. Also, Mr. President talked foreign politics on that same occasion. He explained how well he will succeed in using diplomacy instead of Bush’s warmongering, strengthen old alliances and, all in all, spruce up US international image to a better one. He said: “living our values doesn’t make us weaker, it makes us safer and it makes us stronger.” Even GOPers were approving of the path POTUS has undertaken then…at least of the rhetorics style, which he so Hollywood-esquely told it in. Negotiations_about_Iranian_Nuclear_Program For me personally, 7 years later, all these is just a short summary of all the promises Mr. Obama failed to deliver to America’s doorstep. All the great plans that could have made him a truly Reforming President, were not completed and so the 44th President of US will most likely remain an “intermediate” part of American history. That is confirmed by President himself, as he now constantly compares himself (unfavorably) to truly great US leaders, like Lincoln or Franklin Delano Roosevelt. And I have to agree with him. And the funniest thing is probably that Obama still managed to accomplish pretty big steps during his Presidency. Such as the “Affordable Care Act” (Obamacare), or achieving some kind of ease of US image overseas (which, though, made us look weak now, instead of strong and intimidating before). Anyways, the way those great Presidents Obama mentions himself has changed the country is a great comparison. Like FDR, who was able to overcome the complete weakness of US federal government over private banks and financial sector in general, when dealing with the Great Depression. Or Lincoln, who held the bipartisan country together with a grip of a mountain grizzly bear. Remember the Republican response to Obama’s speech that day? One of the most famous ones was Bobby Jindal’s reaction. He just buoyed the stimulus plan that was just approved by the Congress. Even tried to mock it up, while objecting to spending “140 million US dollars for something vaguely called Volcano Monitoring…”. The irony is that next month after his words, the Alaskan volcano erupted (just as Obama’s intentions did) and covered the state for days with thick, 60000-foot ash and smoke cloud… rtr4uxkj As CNN reporter once said then, regarding GOP response to these wonderful, though unfulfilled ideas of Obama: “To come up at this moment in history with a stale, government-is-the-problem, we can’t trust the federal government—it’s just a disaster for the Republican Party.…in a moment when only the federal government is big enough to actually do stuff—to just ignore all that, and just say ‘government is a problem, corruption, earmarks, wasteful spending,’ it’s just a form of nihilism. It’s just not where the country is. It’s not where the future of the country is.” // ]]>
