President Obama at Wednesday´s press conference defended United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice from criticism concerning the four Americans killed in Libya in September by claiming she "had nothing to do with Benghazi." This led syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer to ask on Fox News´s Special Report hours later, "Then why the hell are you sending her out" to inform the public about what happened?CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Well, you called it his one show of passion. I would say it was his usual show of indignation which is his default response whenever he feels defensive or backed into a corner.
Comments: That´s a very good question! It´s too bad the idiots in the media didn´t bother to find that out. They were too busy kissing his ring like that idiot woman reporter from the Chicago Tribune.
Barry also said she had the latest intelligence when she went on those shows Sept. 16th and blamed the video. Then, why in debate #2, did Barry & Candy insist he called the attack ´terrorism´ on Sept. 12th? These people, along with their groupie media are extremely dangerous.
If we had a half-way neutral media, Barry would have been a puddle on that press room floor yesterday.
We need to face the facts. The media will accept anything 0bama says as gospel because they are more in love with him than they ever were with Bill Clinton. No challenging questions because they don´t want to know the truth!
Barry Hussain went to the UN two weeks later and said the same thing. Hillary spent $70,000 on a video apologizing for the "video" which "caused" the murders. They are the ones who should be answering questions. These people really believe we trust them. If the MSM had not supported Barry and had actually pushed for answers, Romney would have won.
This was merely Rice´s audition for a job in the State department. If The One had thought it through he might have realized that it could potentially lead to her disqualification. That is, if the repubs don´t cave.
That IS the perplexing and obvious question, Mr. Krauthammer. Did anyone at the presser ask the President? I haven´t seen that anyone in the media has asked the question other than Krauthammer. What the hell is going on?
It´s not about the color of skin why blacks support him. I would bet Condoleeza will never go above 10 percent of the black vote if she becomes the GOP nominee for the 2016 presidential race. Pathetic! Congress should dust off the impeachment manual and starts reviewing them ASAP.
A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
I believe that Obama and his staff were trying to quickly get out the idea of the video as the cause of the attack to give the terrorists a reason for their attack. Only the terrorists didn´t go with the idea, now the problem. It´s like say the video--then it´s ok to kill Americans.
Obama is an update to movie, The Color of Money. The sequel is The Power of Color, with Obama as lead actor. Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Lisa Jackson, Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama all in major supporting roles. All six are above criticism, all six are worshipped by the news and entertainment media. As shown at yesterday´s presser, absolutely no one questions The Power of Color even though all of his domestic and international policies have failed to achieve any of the promised results. And, even though Obama used a lie about Benghazi and blackmailed our CIA Director to mouth the same lie. The Power of Color, now playing in a pre-programmed voting machine near you.
Here is the problem. Best friend of fifty plus years, also a retired professor, called yesterday, and is upset about benghazi. And as we discussed Susan Rice´s involvement with the sunday news shows, I asked him if he could remember any UN ambassador appearing on all the news shows, defending something the U.S. had done. He responded that Colin Powell appeared befor the UN and lied about Iraq´s WMDs. I tried ot explain the difference, not sure he understood.(Powell was secretary of state, and he believed that Iraq had WMDs, and that Saddam was faking those WMDs, to scare his neighbors.) We have an uneducated population, even when they are professors.
Simple. Arrogance and a flippant attitude about the whole job of President.
He thought, we don´t want to admit we´ve been lying the whole time or we´re dealing guns to our enemies so no big deal, we´ll make up a story about a demonstration that went bad to cover my rear and she is the messenger (I´m too lazy to do it myself.)
The sheer manipulation and incompetence of this man is astounding. Since the MSM won´t question, and in fact let´s him get away with anything is also astounding.
Expect more of the same from the Great Manipulator!
But.....does the Good Doctor have the juice to say:"As a duly licensed Psychiatrist, I have seen enough of this man´s behavior to conclude that he is a very sick individual who is not competent to serve." ?
That shuck & jive, hide behind the skirts of Susan Rice performance yesterday was like listening to Charlie Manson being interviewed.
Say goodbye to the 60-watt incandescent bulb. This year manufacturers started phasing out 100w and 75w bulbs. On January 1 it will become illegal to import or manufacture traditional 60w and 40w bulbs too. Time to stock up? Not so fast. First, check out Cree’s energy-sipping new 75-watt replacement bulb. I used to be outraged over the federal government’s draconian moves to outlaw traditional lightbulbs. For 100 years we’ve lived and thrived under the warm glow of incandescent lightbulbs. Aside from the fact that 90% of the electricity used by the bulbs is radiated in the form of heat rather than
On a rainy Tuesday afternoon in Johannesburg, South Africa, tens of thousands gathered at FNB Stadium to pay respects to departed civil rights icon and former South African President Nelson Mandela. (Snip) His remembrance of Mandela’s life was followed by a challenge for people to ask themselves “how well have I applied his lessons in my own life?” “It is a question I ask myself – as a man and as a President,” President Obama continued. “We know that like South Africa, the United States had to overcome centuries of racial subjugation. As was true here, it took the sacrifice
Former CBS newsman Dan Rather is in a unique position to tackle the issues surrounding 60 Minutes following its erroneous Benghazi report, and on Piers Morgan‘s show Monday night, Rather explained what he says is the key difference between his report and Lara Logan‘s: his story was true. Rather echoed points made in Mediaite’s defense of Logan: that it’s very easy to blame the correspondent (being the face of the reporter) and forget that there are people working on these reports behind the scenes who are deserving of similar scrutiny, and that any judgment of Logan’s journalistic bona fides should take
The President famously promised that you could keep your health plan and doctor. For many people, both of those pledges are turning out to be false. And now, you might not be able to keep your medicine, either. There are two reasons why. The first has to do with the higher out of pocket costs patients will face. The second issue may be even more significant. Simply put, many drugs may not be covered at all, and the costs patients incur by buying them with cash won’t count against out of pocket caps. This has repercussions for drug makers with big portfolios
he first two months of Obamacare created a rare convergence between supporters and opponents of the law: Everyone agreed that the rollout was a disaster. The consensus reached all the way up to President Obama himself, who went so far as to list the "poor execution on my administration’s part" alongside the GOP´s "reckless shutdown" as reasons that "frustrations with Washington are at an all-time high." It was like an Obamacare miracle. But with HealthCare.gov improving, the convergence is ending. For Obamacare´s supporters, the IT problems really were IT problems. Now that the Web site is working the law will
Kanye West speaking with SaturdayNightOnline.com host Garrett, West Saturday night “Like, I’m just giving of my body on the stage; I’m putting my life at risk, literally!” “When I think about when I’m on the ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing,’ and ‘Coldest Winter’ moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped… You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”
Kevin Kolbye, Assistant Special Agent in Charge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Dallas, served as the on-scene commander for the Benghazi investigation but has not yet testified before Congress about what he knows. Republican Congressman Frank Wolf wants to know why. Kolbye addressed the GovSec West Conference in Dallas in late November and discussed various aspects of the Benghazi investigation with attendees. During his presentation, Kolbye noted that, contrary to initial reports, FBI assets were on the scene in Benghazi within a few days after the attack. Breitbart News reported that story when it broke.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
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
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
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 U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
