Obama Says Debate Prep
‘Going Great’

Wall Street Journal, by Carol E. Lee

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/14/2012 9:29:19 PM

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – President Barack Obama is developing a bit of debate prep repetition, publicly at least. Mr. Obama took a break Sunday from studying and engaging in mock sessions with his staff at a five-star waterfront resort here to deliver pizzas to one of his nearby campaign offices and make a couple phone calls to supporters, just as he did while preparing for his first debate in Henderson, Nev., two weeks ago. (Snip) He then took a seat between two women and picked up the phone. “I’m gonna do my work,” he said, adding: “Everybody’s so serious!”

He has spent more time on this that any other task with the exceptions of golf and fundraising.

All that weed Bill Maher's million dollars helped buy must be really helping to chase away the blues.

Probably thinks it's going great because he's kicking the ass of and besting his sparing partner, the arrogant leftist dullard, John F. Kerry. He'll be left flat-footed again on Tuesday when he comes up against someone who actually appreciates and understands America.

All I see is a goof-off who once again is playing hookey from his studies to go eat pizza. Not a serious man.

As for 'going great' just remember that he also thought he did great after the first debate, so we know how his judgment stacks up.

For all her debate preparation assistance, it has been reported a large box of chocolate covered coconut bon bons was delivered to the CNN office of Ms. Candy Crowley this afternoon.

Per the article, he started at 10 this morning, strolled the grounds "between sessions" while J Effin Kerry tooled around in a golf cart and delivered some pizzas to volunteers. Nice to see his work ethic hasn't changed.

Mitt Romney must be so worried. /s

The Golden Horseshoe Golf Course is at the Williamsburg Inn. Not sure if that's where he's staying. Will he miss playing at the beautiful course? To stay in and do his homework? Nah..

Seriously? Are we really supposed to be impressed with the great impersonator-in-chief and his sycophantic-media letting us in on his "preparations" for the great Debate at a FIVE-STAR waterfront resort WE are paying for? That's a joke, right? Mitt Romney is going to hand him his skinny rear end once again and obama will be delivering pizzas standing up! He may as well get ready for his next career move!

One thing is if a man tells the truth and had a decent record in office he wouldn't have to practice.
Going Great means he has the questions memorized that Crowley gave him and his one line zingers are superb.

You know,Biden skipped out on 2 issues about the Afghanistan and it got no attention. One was Ryan questioning why you announce a withdrawal date so the enemy can just wait you out. Then Radddaz asked hm a question about the surge which apparently did little or no good and he's pulled them back already.

There's a ton of issues going right over people's heads and they're going to vote on style points in the debate instead,regardless of policy stupidity on Obama's part.

Low information voters are Obama's best friends.Wasn't there some people who swallowed Romney was black and Obama was a Mormon?

He thought he was still on the Affirmative Action train in the 1st debate...no need to "study", I'm gonna get an A no matter what!. Well, it seems that the AA program got axed prior to the debate and he wasn't told. Now, like most slacker students, he's gotta grab the CliffsNotes and make an effort to at least show some comprehension of the subjects. My guess is the best he'll do is a D...no matter how many plants are in the audience, and Crowleys' best efforts to ambush Romney.

"Going Great", just like the economy? Trouble is O & Effing are debate prepping in their bubble where they believe their own lies. Not a winning strategy when the voters outside the DC & media bubble are living the reality of obamaville.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House
Republicans on immigration
Politico, by Seung Min Kim    Original Article

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 2:28:49 PM     Post Reply
Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

   

 



 
UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind
Its Invitation to 2014 Commencement
Speaker (and War Criminal) Barack Obama
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Andrew Stiles    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 1:34:30 PM     Post Reply
Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
