Last night, President Obama defiantly declared that "al Qaeda is on its heels." The president made this claim at a fundraiser at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California. "Now, four years ago, I made a few commitments to you. I told you I’d end the war in Iraq, and I did. I said I’d end the war in Afghanistan, and we are," said Obama. "I said we’d refocus on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11 -- and today, al Qaeda is on its heels and Osama bin Laden is no more." The extraordinary
Comments: It is shocking and disgraceful that this pathological liar continues to behave like this and in doing so threatens our national security.
He is in denial. He doesn't realize that the political winds have shifted as a result of the debate, and that the same old schtick just isn't cutting it. The schtick that used to work, it ain't working no more. In the (approximate) words of Warren Zevon, his schtick's f****d up. But it is all he has to offer. He cannot change. He can only do more of the same thing. If he were a vaudeville act, it would be time for the hook to yank him off the stage. The election is the next best way to rid the nation of this pest.
I can imagine the Al Qaeda bull sessions. Sneak up behind him from the left because he only scans the right. Thwap him on the head, steal his wallet, kill his people, he will only bluster. By the time he looks back and to his left you can be long gone and faded back into the population.

Oh, and ONE! more thing! (courtesy Bob Beckel)
I'm dang sick and tired of our guys being sitting duck targets for the orcs over there in Afghanistan! There are too many Americans being slaughtered via green-on-blue (or blue-on-green, whichever it is) ''work place violence''!
Where is the MEDIA on this?! I hear only Laura Ingraham talk about this..... Remember how they counted every body in Iraq? Remember how many of them published every name, every day? Where are they NOW?!
According to the AP (not exactly an opponent of Obama) via washingtn Examiner, Al Qaeda making a comeback in Iraq. So all the blood and treasure spilt in Iraq is being wasted so Obama could say he got all our troops out... A pro USA government in Iraq would have been a great counterweight to Iran but instead will be a colony of Iran.

In 4 sentences: 'I made a few commitments to you. I told you I’d end the war in Iraq, and I did. I said I’d end the war in Afghanistan, and we are," said Obama. "I said we’d refocus on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11 ...'
Axelrod needs to open up that control panel in Obama's back, turn off the "Loop" switch for the Narrative Track, and insert a new set of recordings. The previous set are no longer applicable and their experimental model of the Obama-THX08 is starting to embarrass them as it winds down.
The man, Barack Huseein Obama is a clown and a fraud. He has completely disgraced the presidency of the United States. Thank you freakin democrats for electing this idiot. Our foreign policies, our economy and our security is shot thanks to you morons. And, Bush ended the war in Iraq and Obama has completely embarassed us in Afghanistan.
The Obama administration’s continuing claim of the demise of Al Quida in the wake of the attack and murders at our embassy in Libyan reminds me of the Groucho Marks line, “Are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?”
The chutzpah of this administration is beyond belief!
I think Obama is exactly right. Bush left them on their knees, under Obama they've raised up on two legs and are fighting back. He's an idiot and delusional.
Regarding the briefings, my dream is that Romney brings it up in the debate. But instead of saying you missed XX% of the daily intelligence briefings, he should give a number. You did not attend 186 intelligence briefings last year.
He may be right, but if "al Qaeda is on its heels," it's because it came down wrong after a slam-dunk right in Stinky's face.
#32: Thank you for today's [first] literal LOL [call a doctor -- "FOS"]. Much, much funnier thanks to your screen name with the MD. And for that [MD], congratulations. It's a degree I find usually worthy of respect.
Write off the hard core Leftists and the low information supporters, of course. But it does give one pause the amount of rationalization and denial to be an average Obama supporter these days. And it gets worse by the day.
With actions like shutting down the WH daily briefing, you can see that that Obama and his corrupt, disinforming crew just want to somehow, someway make it to Nov 7 without a complete meltdown. I don't think they can play off BenghaziGate for four weeks. If Romney and the Republicans let them run out the clock this multdimensional Libyan outrage, then they deserve to lose. Not a game changer, Benghazi and should be a game ender for The One.
MSNBC anchor and NBC News political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd lashed out at Fox News for what he described as "pandering to an audience" over their coverage of President Obama´s enthusiastic handshake with Cuban dictator Raul Castro at Tuesday´s memorial service for Nelson Mandela. Chuck Todd ? @chucktodd Follow Really? An entire segment on a handshake? Good grief; pandering to an audience 10:37 AM - 10 Dec 2013 The irony of an MSNBC anchor accusing another network of pandering to their audience requires no explanation. Todd joins CNN, Politico´s Dylan Byers, and a number of other
Another week, another flimsy attack in Gawker´s years-long crusade against Fox News and its CEO, Roger Ailes. This time, Gawker excited liberal mass media with a scandalized report on legal minutiae related to a settlement between Fox News and a former executive, Brian Lewis, who headed up public relations for the channel. Ailes fired Lewis last July "for cause," the story lending itself to media suggesting the departure exclusively resulted from communications with Soros-backed Ailes biographer Gabriel Sherman. In fact, a Breitbart News report cites a source close to the story then saying
A new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) provided to Breitbart News exclusively ahead of its public release shows that President Barack Obama’s new amnesty for illegal aliens related to members of the U.S. military is a system full of loopholes. On Nov. 15, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a new memo detailing a new policy through which the Obama administration planned to exempt a new category of illegal aliens from deportation and other forms of enforcement of immigration law. CIS’s John Feere, in his report on the topic, detailed what the administration tried to make it
President Barack Obama may be recalling the lessons and story of Nelson Mandela at a memorial in South Africa today, but a series of photographs on the internet suggest another story may be being told. A series of pictures posted on the twitter account of ‘Stun’ show President Obama chatting with the prime minister of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, as Michelle Obama looks on in a not-so-pleased manner.
Four days before the legal deadline, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said she had not yet signed up for Obamacare, but was still mulling over the plans and what might work best for her family. As of Dec. 9, the deadline for members of Congress, Wasserman’s office had not responded to CNSNews.com’s inquiry on whether the lawmaker had enrolled. In a CNN interview on Dec. 5, host Wolf Blitzer asked Rep. Wasserman Schultz, “Because you’re a member of Congress, you have to go to the healthcare.gov website. Have you done that already?” The congresswoman said, “Yes, I’m in the middle
Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) proposed legislation on Monday that would prevent the federal government from giving bonuses or raises to people who run state-level health insurance exchanges under ObamaCare. Gardner´s bill, H.R. 3679, is a response to a recent effort by Patty Fontneau, who runs Colorado´s health insurance exchange, to get a raise and bonus. Gardner said Fontneau is seeking a raise even though the Colorado exchange is far behind its enrollment target so far this year. The Denver Post reported just 6,000 Coloradans were signed up through mid-November, even though the exchange expected that enrollment of 11,000 people would be a
The 2013 winner of top political player on Capitol Hill is… Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.). The senator stands out as the leader of the Democrats’ historic move to go to the “nuclear option,” ending the paralysis by threat of filibuster that tied the Senate in knots for the last five years. The junior senator from the Beaver State showed a lot of political bite, in the form of persistence, and has become a left-wing hero as a result. Merkley, with a big assist from Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), won the biggest vote of the year on Capitol Hill by convincing Democrats they were
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
