Sen. Kelly Ayotte denies racism
is behind opposition to Amb.
Susan Rice over Benghazi

Politico, by Katie Glueck

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/27/2012 4:29:13 PM

Sen. Kelly Ayotte on Tuesday bashed the charge that criticism of U.N. Amb. Susan Rice is rooted in racism and sexism. “I think it’s absolutely false,” said Ayotte (R-N.H.) on Fox News Channel’s “America Live with Megyn Kelly.” Ayotte, a vocal critic of Rice’s handling of the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, joined Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in a meeting with the ambassador on Tuesday morning to discuss Rice’s initial explanation of those attacks, which ultimately proved to be incorrect.

It´s going to be (another) long 4 years with this administration.

So, Republicans need to stop rising to the bait. Keep hammering away on what stinks about the situation and ignore the fluffery of racism/sexism or the ism of the day.

Republicans need to start using actual racist words and keep using them. Maybe after enough of it the dems will promise to shut up about it if they will just stop.

“I think it’s absolutely false,” said Ayotte (R-NH).
Sen. Ayotte, you´re too nice. The reply should have been, "That´s an outright lie."

I think, is squishy, and the ´RATs take advantage of squishy replies. Get up in their face, remember?

I am truly amazed and saddened that this question is being asked with no foundation. Those who utilize the race card in this manner truly cheapen the charge to the point that it is now meaningless.

I´m with #3. STOP responding to the accusation. No denial will suffice or cause a cessation of the charge. Just look the camera/interviewer/accuser in the eye and say: "Four Americans in service to their country are dead, and we´ve been lied to about why that happened. I want the truth - ALL OF IT - NOW".
Repeat until they can´t stand it anymore.

Rage against Zippy the Magic-Marxist Negro (hyphen needed) is rising on all fronts. How he was ever re-elected to destroy America, as planned, is unbelievable. So we can count on the rejection of people like this absurdly inept woman to continue. Please.

Kelly is obviously trying trying to assert herself onto the national scene and I want to like her, but she keeps shadowing McCain. Is she another Snowe/Collins from up there in the very Northeast?

Boy do you have it right, #11. Megyn trying to badger Senator Ayotte was upsetting. You only get treated with respect by media when they know you will embarrass them or utilize payback if they badger you on behalf of the Democrats. The media do NOT respect our mushy, trying to be popular Repubbies.

Ldotters spot-on as usual. The response must be one of disgust with the question itself.

Senator Ayotte is my Senator. I will call and "suggest" that she and her fellow Senators have a bull session and decide how they´ll approach these stupid accusations.

They have to push forward. Fight back. No more retreating. There´s no more room between them and the cliff. (or, between US and the cliff)

Maybe you´re missing something. The meeting was initiated by the WH, not Rice, and maybe not so that Rice could feel out the questions for a later confirmation hearing. Maybe it was to send a message. Rice gave evasive portmanteau answers. She probably wouldn´t know a straight answer from a smoked salmon. But Ayotte seemed visibly shaken. McCain was a little quavery. Lindsey says he is even more disturbed than he was before. IMO something threatening was delivered. There is a big picture at work. They were advised they are not smart enough to get to the bottom of this, and it would be better not to bother.

Russia ´outraged´ as east Ukraine
shootout shatters Easter truce

Slavyansk Ukraine- A deadly gunfight in a town in restive east Ukraine on Sunday shattered a fragile Easter truce, with Russia declaring it was "outraged" at the return to violence in the crisis-hit former Soviet republic. Three pro-Russian militants and one attacker were killed in a firefight at a roadblock close to the separatist-held town of Slavyansk, said a local pro-Kremlin rebel leader, Vyatcheslav Ponomarev. Vladimir, a masked 20-year-old pro-Russian rebel who was at the barricade, told AFP: "Four cars pulled up to our roadblock around 1:00am (2200 GMT Saturday).

Pipeline delay gives boost

Washington - The latest delay to a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will reinforce a White House strategy to energize President Barack Obama´s liberal-leaning base before fall elections in which Democrats risk losing control of the U.S. Senate. Environmentalists, worried about the project´s effect on climate change, have put enormous pressure on the president to reject the pipeline from Canada´s oil sands, staging demonstrations outside the White House and protests in states where he travels. A decision to approve it now could have prompted that vocal group, which was instrumental in electing Obama in 2008 and 2012,

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion
Washington Post, by Kimberley Winston    Original Article

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

´8THEIST´ license plate in NJ: Why
states can´t rein in the vanity plate monster
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 4:09:21 PM     Post Reply
If you can get a New Jersey vanity license plate that reads “BAPTIST,” why not one that reads “8THEIST”? That’s the question Shannon Morgan, a self-describe atheist, is asking in a lawsuit after the New Jersey department of motor vehicles denied her vanity plate application. Her main complaint is a bureaucracy deeming that “8THEIST” has connotations that offend “good taste and decency,” the bar which the state uses to judge the suitability of personalized plate messages. She also wants the state to adopt a more “viewpoint-neutral” vanity plate approval policy, since when she typed “BAPTIST” into the DMV application it

Grandma Hillary Is a
Double-Edged Sword in 2016

When Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she’s pregnant, it took the media about two nanoseconds to home in on what that really means: Hillary, should she run for president in 2016, will campaign as a grandmother. (Snip) And for another, Hillary’s newfound role as grandmother isn’t necessarily a political boon. As I wrote in the Washington Monthly’s current issue, it could very easily cut both ways. After all, Hillary, who will be 68 in 2016, already runs the risk of appearing old, a vulnerability not lost on her detractors. From the Monthly: (At sixty-six, Hillary is “not particularly old for

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama
‘is a different (matzo) ball game’

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst
since 2008, as GOP brand surges

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
