Susan Rice withdraws
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 12/14/2012 7:12:29 AM

Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, no doubt at the behest of the White House, withdrew her name for consideration as secretary of state. This suggests there is a glimmer of reality-based thinking at the White House.Susan Rice won’t be secretary of State.To be frank, she should never have been floated as a possible nominee. Her consideration for all intents and purposes was a political payback for her loyalty in the campaign and in the first term. Her reputation in the Clinton administration was poor;

Jen Rubin continues to write great blogs/columns in WAPO. Kerry will breeze through confirmation, I hope, so we Mass people can finally be rid of "Live Shot" and open up the Senate for another Scott Brown run.

Evidently Lurch is not a shoe in. Angria Mitchell made a supposed funny last night.

Said his nomination might fall like John Tower´s fell.

Shocker!

Watch for the MA legislature to push through emergency legislation to make replacing Cary a pick of the governor rather then a special election!

read the comments after the story. they are absolutely amazing. i truly do not understand how those people can think (perhaps think is too generous a word) the way they do. it is as if they never, never, ever, hear or read or consider another point of view. those readers typify the voters for obama, warren and frankly, any dem who is running for or who is in office. it is their way or it´s stupid, ignorant, racist, women hating and on and on. and these are the supposedly "intellectual" members of the voting public. unbelievable.

If Time manages to continue its drivel to next December, it will surely name Kerry its Person of the Year. Not for his accomplishments, since there won´t be any, but for displaying as much arrogance as Obama. "Rarely in the history of this award has a nominee displayed such a pompous, arrogant personality as Kerry. In fact, his dismissal of foreign allies, his preening for the cameras and his total lack of interest in American history and values puts him on par with a previous recipient, Mr. Obama."

I say -- excellent! Let Kerry become SOS, and then he and Hillary and duke it out for the 2016 Dem nomination for President. That would be worth investing in popcorn.

Poster # 7, WaPo reader comments assaulting Ms Rubin are little different than the vicious comments following a Charles Krauthammer or George Will essay. These readers will not tolerate any writer who is in any way critical of their god, Lord Barack. They all worship at Obama´s feet, and they will besmirch anyone who questions their cult´s god on earth. Would be safe bet to say that many are federal civil servants or Obama political appointees to federal no show jobs.

The same cult belief that Obama is the infallible, all knowing God of Redistribution and Retribution infects commenters to the NY Times.

I don´t believe the Swift Boaters will let that happen so easily #2. As for MA voters, please don´t palm your elected trash on the rest of the country. If you are tired of him, don´t keep reelecting him! We don´t want it. Its bad enough to have to endure Obama.

Yes! They pride themselves on being the ´educated´ class…..the ones with all the college diplomas. Look down their noses at us ´common folk´ clinging to our religion…(and guns!.)

40 years ago a brilliant leftist professor of mine told me "In the future everything will come down to politics." IOW in the future, you will see and understand according to your particular political filter. What I understand now is the devil, who is way ahead of the good guys, would be running a delusion counterfeit. You will get your truth according to your faith based reason. We have an OJ world. Everything is coming apart. Be thankful if He gave you the grace to know right from wrong, and how to prepare yourself for what is coming through the leftists and the gutless republican enablers.

Zippy must´ve been dragged, kicking and screaming, into throwing Rice under the bus.

His stupendously arrogant behavior in recent weeks made it clear:
He was determined to force Rice down our throats (yep, yucky image).

Who dragged Zippy into abandoning Rice, we don´t know ... but there must be some pretty bad Benghazi fallout a-comin,´ for the Rice dump to have happened.

What we do know is that Andrea Mitchell is now furious with her Lord and Savior, Barack, for abandoning poor little damsel-in-distress, Rice.

Rice is a strange-looking woman. She almost looks like she could be Mulatto, but I can´t find anything in her bio about being Mulatto.
She does look like she has some white blood in her. The reason I am interested in her heritage is because Obama seems to surround himself with Mulattos. Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, both top Obama officials, are Mulatto. Colon Powell is Mulatto. Some have called them Obama´s "Mulatto Mafia".

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

   

 



 
Diplomacy downplay: Obama administration
minimizes latest North Korean nuke threat
Washington Times, by Guy Taylor and Shaun Waterman    Original Article
Posted By: Oblio- 4/6/2013 7:02:06 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”

Why Obama´s ´Best-Looking Attorney
General´ Comment Was a Gaffe
The Atlantic, by Garance Franke-Ruta    Original Article
Posted By: Oblio- 4/6/2013 6:51:15 AM     Post Reply
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

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

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

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

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)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
