President Obama says he´s not the one who canceled the White House tours. He made the comments in an interview with ABC News. "[O]ne more question about the spending cuts," said the interviewer from ABC News. "You’ve been takin’ a lotta heat for this cancellation of the White House tours. They get– the Secret Service says it’s costs about $74,000 a week. Was canceling them really necessary?" "You know, I have to say this was not– a decision that went up to the White House."

Comments:
"I didn´t do it. No one saw me do it. You can´t prove anything."

Obama twice ran for president but is unwilling and incapable of accepting the responsibilities that go with the office.

He must believe he is still just a community organizer whose job it is to give speeches meant to manipulate and divide people.

Obama CERTAINLY does not know how to find SOLUTIONS to America´s serious problems including unsustainable debts, chronic unemployment and anemic economic growth.

What a LOSER America elected by voting for Obama.

Well of course not.

With today´s events in Rome, we should remember that Bronco is more humble, a greater servant of the people, than any Pope could hope to be. How could such a man close the People out of their house? I mean, really.

And he won´t rest until he finds "the real person who cancelled the tours." Ahem.

#10: Point of order: correct, Truman´s "S" is not the initial for a middle name. However, he did later adopt a period after the "S". Two confirming examples: the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and the USS Harry S. Truman [CVN 75] both employ the period. Thanks.

#13: Truman did usually put a period after the "S" but later confirmed that the "S" did not stand for any name but was a compromise between the names of his two grandfathers, Shipp and Soloman.

http://www.trumanlibrary.org/speriod.htm

I suppose if Clinton could change his name from William Jefferson Blythe III and Obama could change his name from Obama to Soetoro and then back to Obama, Truman could decide whether or not to use a period after his S.

BTW, the Harry S Truman National Historic Site in Missouri does not employ a period after the S.

What is telling here is that BO is impotent. While we KNOW he and his lackeys canceled the tours as a political stunt, even if he hadn´t and found out about it couldn´t the "most powerful man in the world" figure out a way to restore the tours and cut something else. Apparently not THIS president. He is a helpless victim of the nasty Republicans. Something this simple to fix and BO can´t manage it. He is so small and petty that he would rather punish the kids coming to Washington rather than act as an adult and find a true compromise.

Just as the blacks claimed lily-white clinton was the first black president, can we now claim obama as the first feminist president? My experience with feminists (not women, feminists)is that they are always the victim and their actions/mistakes are always someone else´s fault.

If he was telling the truth about this, he would have gratefully allowed Conservatives in the media who offered to pick up the slack with the cost of the tours to do so. But then, neither Obama is of the gracious sort. Instead they are petty, vengeful, and totally devoid of the milk of human kindness unless there is good PR in it for them.

Instead he has reacted in a petty, prideful way and dug in his heels. And you are right about the Secret Service #20. They do know how to bide their time.

From Clinton to Holder to Obama, you have to parse every syllable. There may have been just enough truth in what he said to get a "meaning of the word is" reality. Someone in the SS may have actually said something and, yes, Congress did allow the sequestration. He forgot, however, that sequestration was his idea and the SS can´t give the order. It would have taken a followup question to point that out but loyal Stephie would not ask it.

The Right Minimum
Wage: $0.00
New York Times, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: kennedylaw- 2/3/2014 11:37:31 AM     Post Reply
The Federal minimum wage has been frozen at $3.35 an hour for six years. In some states, it now compares unfavorably even with welfare benefits available without working. It´s no wonder then that Edward Kennedy, the new chairman of the Senate Labor Committee, is being pressed by organized labor to battle for an increase. No wonder, but still a mistake. Anyone working in America surely deserves a better living standard than can be managed on $3.35 an hour. But there´s a virtual consensus among economists that the minimum wage is an idea whose time has passed.

The Urban League of Greater Dallas fired one person and suspended three others after a video from a conservative activist reportedly showed the workers encouraging health care applicants to lie. An edited video was released Monday that seemingly shows so-called health care Navigators encouraging people to lie on forms signing up for health care to get better rates. The video was released by Project Veritas, which was started by conservative activist James O´Keefe. O´Keefe gained notoriety for videos in 2009 that eventually brought down ACORN.

Evelina Gonzalez was supposed to undergo cancer surgery in July following chemotherapy but wound up shuttling from hospital to hospital in search of an available operating table. On the crest of her left breast, a mocha-colored tumor doubled in size and now bulges through her white spandex tank top. Gonzalez is on a list of 31 breast cancer patients waiting to have tumors removed at one of Venezuela´s biggest medical facilities, Maracay´s Central Hospital. But like legions of the sick across the country, she´s been neglected by a health care system doctors say is collapsing after years of deterioration.

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)

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

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
