R.I.P., Barney: How ´Barney Cam´
made George W. Bush´s
dog a Web star

Los Angeles Times, by Jimmy Orr

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/6/2013 11:09:45 AM

"Mr. Orr, this is the White House operator." As a White House spokesman, I received phone calls like this all the time. But this was the first time the president´s secretary had ordered me to report to the Oval Office immediately. Before 7 a.m. on a Saturday. It was December 2003. Iraq was all over the news. We were closing in on the capture of Saddam Hussein. But — and the nation should be thankful — this wasn´t my domain. President George W. Bush had another reason for calling for me now. Barney Cam. How it happened - Whenever I'm asked to speak about my tenure in the White House,

Comments:
I can´t help but smile when seeing the "old" Barney Cam. We had been in the war on terror for well over two years and sadly, Congress was buckling by dRATS as to their duty to support said troops after their phony accusations against President Bush and a sign saying "Mission Accomplished" in reference to Iraq six months before in May.

I thought we could never smile "again," with daily negative LSM misreporting of troop actions and deaths. Then, came Barney Cam. Thank you, Barney and RIP. You still make me smile.

I love the photo of the communications director running after Barney in the snow!! The Barney Cams were so, so clever and original. Nothing like this comes out of the current WH occupants.

Obama doesn´t have a camera for his dog--he has a Dutch oven.

Maybe they could strap a camera to moochelle´s behind. After all obama has made a point of always leading from behind so moochelle should just follow his "lead". We could watch as she works in the garden, does her arm curls, feeds her face, plans her next paid for vacation, picks out her wardrobe at the Goodwill, takes a quick trip to Target. The fun would be endless.

Barney was in a class by himself.

The videos were exactly what was needed at that time. Washington was a very sad place in 2002 and there was still an air of "what if?" Barney provided some nice, light-hearted entertainment (had to love the snarky NYT comment about there being no plot...)

And the Barney video has been copied, but it´s not better.

Barney cam was missed greatly. The current pResident in the white house has only the opportunity to show us big buts, boob belts, and pics of him throwing a ball of any kind. Oh, and shooting his guns at nothing at all.

Had to revisit Barney Cam II: Reloaded. Awesome how the uniformed Secret Service agent didn´t even crack a smile. THAT´S a dedicated professional right there.

We miss you, Dubya...

For the briefest moment I was thrilled as I glanced at the headline, but then I sorrowfully realized it was about GWB´s Scottish terrier.

Country music singer
Kevin Sharp dead at 43

Fair Oaks, Calif. - Kevin Sharp, a country music singer who recorded multiple chart-topping songs and survived a well-publicized battle with cancer, has died. He was 43. His sister Mary Huston said Sharp died at his mother´s Fair Oaks home at 10:49 p.m. Saturday of complications from past stomach surgeries and digestive issues. "He had a strong heart, that´s what kept him alive, (but) I´m so happy for him, that there´s no more suffering," Huston said through tears and exhaustion. She had cared for her brother since his return home to Northern California last Friday after 10 weeks in the hospital.

John Paul Stevens: It’s okay
for justices to take politics
into account when retiring
Washington Post, by Katie Zezima    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 6:23:54 PM     Post Reply
Retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens said it is appropriate for justices to take the political climate into account when thinking about retirement. "I think so," Stevens said when asked by George Stephanopoulos on ABC´s "This Week" if it is appropriate to take politics into account when deciding to retire. "It´s an appropriate thing to think about your successor, not only in this job," said Stevens, who retired in 2010 and was replaced by Justice Elena Kagan. Stevens cited former defense secretary Robert Gates, who said in a new book that he was also concerned about who would take his place.

Red-state Democrats blast
latest Keystone delay
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 6:14:12 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration’s latest Keystone pipeline delay had barely been announced late last week when red-state Democrats began to howl, calling the move everything from ridiculous to irresponsible and vowing to explore ways to force President Obama’s hand. The outcry from within the president’s own party underscored the tricky politics for those Democrats, many of whom are facing tough re-election bids, and decisions such as Keystone make it difficult to be tied to Mr. Obama right now. It also set up a major test: Can those Democrats find a way to pass legislation overruling the administration’s decision,

Source speaking on condition of anonymity confirms reports that PA warned Israel that Ramallah-based, self-government body may dissolve itself if so-called "Israeli intransigence" continues. US envoy to the Middle East peace process Martin Indyk did not present any new proposals on how to salvage the currently stalemated Israeli-Palestinian peace talks during a meeting on Friday, a Palestinian official told AFP on Sunday According to the report, the unnamed source confirmed reports that the Palestinian Authority had warned Israel that the Ramallah-based, self-government body may dissolve itself if so-called "Israeli intransigence"

Putin sees opportunities
as Obama turns away
Washington Times, by Charles Ortel    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 5:38:41 PM     Post Reply
We learn this Easter Sunday from The New York Times that President Obama now embraces his inner ostrich — Russian President Vladimir Putin is but a pesky irritant, causing problems in just one region of a world that America still rightly leads. Apparently, our cocksure Nobel Peace laureate believes it is cool under the sand, even as tectonic geopolitical plates shift underneath the creaky, man-made foundation “assuring” global security. In real life, President Obama and his senior advisers are making gross mistakes of epic-defining proportions that will have profoundly negative consequences, particularly for the poorest among us.

Bill Maher, comedian or bigot?

Comedy has many subjects: leaders, governments, things we don’t understand. Regarding that last topic, I suppose it is understandable that comedians pick on religions. In any event, freedom of speech allows them to do so. What is generally not condoned, however, are continuous and sweeping insults aimed at those with differing points of view. The worst forms of prejudice and racism are bred out of this type of one-sided banter. Blacks in this country never were given the chance to defend themselves against claims of being less intelligent than whites during the time of slavery. Jews and non-Aryans never were given a chance to defend

Syria´s Bashar Assad visits recaptured
Christian village on Easter
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 5:16:23 PM     Post Reply
BEIRUT - Syria´s embattled president marked Easter with a tour Sunday of an ancient Christian village recently recaptured by his forces, an important symbolic prize for his government ahead of coming presidential elections he appears poised to contest. President Bashar Assad´s visit to Maaloula, some 40 miles northeast of Damascus, serves a propaganda victory for his government in its quest to be seen as protector of religious minorities as its civil war grinds on. (Snip) Rebels, including fighters from the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front, seized Maaloula several times late last year, most recently in December.

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

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

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers

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

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
