Revealed: VP Debate Moderator
Martha Raddatz Hosted President
Obama at Wedding, Never Told Public

NewsBusters, by Matthew Sheffield

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/10/2012 10:35:51 AM

The liberal media/politician/bureaucrat revolving door spins so rapidly, sometimes it's hard to keep pace. Today we learn via the Daily Caller that the moderator for tomorrow's vice presidential debate, ABC News reporter Martha Raddatz, hosted President Obama as a guest at her 1991 wedding to the man who would later become Obama's FCC commissioner, Julius Genachowski. That's shocking enough in its own right but things are further compounded by the fact that ABC News, home of veteran Democratic adviser George Stephanopolous, has long known about this conflict of interest and did nothing about it. Even worse, the network has

Alarm Bells! Alarm Bells! Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
Now the question is, "where is Rience Prius"? (the alleged RNC chair person). The RNC's silence on this is just one reason I don't give them a single cent. The RNC, even John Boner should take the microphones and shout from the highest rooftops that THIS IS WRONG!!!

This seems rather irrelevant 20 years later, but I didn't think she was qualified to begin with. With Stephanwhozeewhats, ABC is not a legitimate news organization.

Is this the wedding that Barry caught the bouquet?

It's all Seinfeld, this time with George kissing Susan , the NBC programming executive, at a preliminary meeting to determine if the pilot was worth of test. At least NBC fired this imaginary Susan for conflict of interest.

Hate to be a wet blanket, but considering that the schedule and moderators were announced awhile back, why all the recent fuss? Is this new news or something rehashed? Jim Lehrer is a lib, but it didn't help Prez Zippy. Just unleash VP Biden and watch all the logic flow from the lips of Rep Ryan. Pundits will have their own debate about the debate come Friday morning.

Seems to me Martha Raddatz is lacking ethics.

But hey... we are used to that from liberals.

~~Of course, if a Fox News employee hosting a presidential debate were to exposed as having such a relationship with a Republican president, the story would be plastered all over the media and left-leaning journalists would be calling for him/her to be immediately replaced. Clearly this would be a good idea in this case as well.~~

They protect all things liberal/left leaning......Now that it is out, perhaps she will be more closely watched, and any little bias in her questioning will be noticed.....

I expect softballs to Joe and a slew of questions to Ryan with false premises (Why do you want to give the rich $5T in tax cuts? Why do you want to end Medicare? When you end abortion what will you do about rape victims that die from coathangers? Blah, blah, blah.) The irony is, all these gotcha attempts will give Ryan a chance to expose the lies being told about the Romney campaign.

Didn't Liberal commentators and newsanchors moderate the debates last election, too? And the election before that? And before theat?

How about evening things up sometime? Enough Commie-Propaganda 'debates' -- let's have Mark Levin moderate one of these events, instead. A debate like that, I wouldn't skip. (I might even go pay-per-view to see it.)

This is old, old news about Raddatz. (I saw her at Genachowski's and Obama's law school graduation.) Prior to her marriage to Genachowski, she was married to Ben Bradlee, Junior, who was then with the Boston Globe. Raddatz, who used the name Bradlee professionally--she never called herself Genachowski--was the political correspondent for the ABC affiliate in Boston.

At first I thought Romney and Ryan should protest this. Then I had coffee and breakfast and rethought the whole thing.

Romney won the first debate by miles.

The word is now out. Both Raddatz's and the Commission's connections to Obama have been exposed. So far Romney-Ryan have decided to take the high road and go ahead with the debates as scheduled, with the moderators selected by the commission.

Fine. If the debates come out OK and there is no bias - and we and those like us, including the candidates, will know it - then our team will have won in spite of the probability of bias. If the moderators' bias is apparent and Obama seems to win, to have the system rigged, I expect all **** to break loose.

You have to wonder about the RNC agreeing to all the debates being moderated by people with a very liberal bent. You would think that they would have insisted on just one conservative moderator, maybe Rush Limbaugh, who would have made that debate fun to watch.

Clinton struggled to ´be real´ since the 90s
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Alexandra Jaffe    Original Article

Newly released documents from the Clinton Presidential Library reveal that Hillary Clinton and her aides have been struggling to manage her media image since the early days of her husband’s administration. The problem is one that´s dogged her throughout her career, hobbled her 2008 presidential bid and could continue to be an issue in a potential 2016 White House campaign. According to the new papers that span Bill Clinton’s eight-year term, the then-first lady’s aides created strategies to maximize her exposure in venues where she felt most comfortable, like town-hall style events and local media, noting her “aversion” to the national Washington

President Obama on Friday offered a staunch defense of his agenda in a fiery speech to the Democratic National Committee winter meeting, where he said Republicans were "0 for 2" in trying to turn back his agenda. Obama, rallying the party faithful ahead of November´s crucial midterm elections, urged Democrats to make Republicans go “0 for 3.” “The top Republican in the Senate said his top priority wasn´t to create jobs or expand opportunity, but to beat me,” said Obama. “So let´s look at the scorecard. They´re 0 for 2. This November, let´s make them 0 for 3.” In the speech, the president

Just as the first lady promised, President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden showed off their “Let’s Move” moves on Friday, hitting the hallways of the White House wearing shirts, ties and dress pants for a quick run. Mrs. Obama said during a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” that if enough Americans showed off their exercise moves on Twitter, then the president and vice president would give them a show of their own exercise routines. That promise was realized via a video of the top two executives jogging about the White House, swilling loads of water, Politico

Michelle Obama is everywhere these days -- and the White House plans to keep her in the spotlight through November´s midterms. The first lady is pushing a ban on junk-food ads and trumpeting new nutrition labels -- in addition to doing comedy skits with Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell -- as part of a ramped-up schedule for arguably the most popular Democratic woman in Washington. With President Obama seen as a potential albatross in competitive congressional races, some Democrats are clamoring for the first lady to take a more active role to fend off the GOP effort to take back the

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Friday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that President Obama´s statement on the latest Ukraine developments showed "weakness," and implied that "we´re not really going to do anything" about the political upheaval in Ukraine. On Friday, armed men, allegedly Russian military forces, entered the Crimea region and took control of two airports. President Obama then delivered a message from the White House briefing room, saying he was "deeply concerned" by the reports and that "there will be costs" for any military intervention in Ukraine, though he declined to specify what those costs might be.

I´ve been lamenting Republicans´ haphazard and sclerotic response to Harry Reid´s Obamacare smears, wondering with frustration why the party hadn´t produced any instant YouTube ads or mobilized to draw attention to the comments. Last night I received word from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) -- the group devoted to relegating Reid to minority status -- that they were working on it. They´ve since shared their production exclusively with Townhall: If you´re wondering why the ad doesn´t actually feature Reid´s remarks, Senate rules severely restrict campaign committees´ ability to use floor footage in ads.

President Obama in a speech on Friday hammered Republicans who oppose gay rights, saying that some of them wanted to “legalize segregation based on sexual orientation.” “In some states, they´re so far in the past they´re even pushing laws to legalize segregation based on sexual orientation,” said Obama in an address to the Democratic National Convention winter meeting in Washington. “As Democrats, we´ve let the other side define the word ´freedom´ for too long,” he added. Obama´s comments were likely a reference to a recent Arizona bill that would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gay customers.

As Obamacare was envisioned, consumers who purchased private insurance coverage through the new Obamacare marketplaces -- and only through the Obamacare marketplaces -- could potentially qualify for federal tax credits to help pay for it. Now, in states that have experienced technical problems with their Obamacare websites, some consumers can get tax credits for purchasing insurance on the individual market, even outside of the Obamacare marketplace. The administration quietly issued the health law fix Thursday to help those states. Several Democratic-led states, including Oregon, Maryland, Massachusetts and Hawaii,

MEXICO CITY - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said he is "indignant" at the United States´ deportation of Mexican migrants and described U.S. lawmakers as demonstrating a "lack of conscience" in failing to pass immigration reform. In a television interview aired late on Wednesday Pena Nieto said he and U.S. President Barack Obama discussed the issue during their meeting at a North American leaders´ summit held last week in Mexico. His emboldened comments to U.S. Spanish language channel Univision followed days after his administration announced it had captured Mexico´s most wanted man, drug lord Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman.

First lady Michelle Obama unveiled a proposed new nutrition label Thursday, claiming the labels would make it easier for families to tell whether food is healthy. Because math is hard, or something. If your “nanny-state” radar is going off, it should. The new label really doesn’t appear to be much different from the old one. The “servings per container” font is larger and bolder, the “calories” section is much larger and bolder and the “percent daily value” column was moved to the left side (have to spend that tax money on something).

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation. Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

Vice President Joe Biden has revealed that the President assigned him ‘every s*** job in the world’ but he still wasn’t able to win Obama’s full support and began being effectively frozen out after one of his infamous gaffes.

Secretary of State John Kerry today warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay clear of the political turmoil in Ukraine, adding that the U.S. doesn´t view the international tussle over the democratic movement in Kiev as a continuation of the Cold War. “We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States. This is not ‘Rocky IV´, believe me. We don´t see it that way,” Kerry said in a reference to the popular film in which Sylvester Stallone’s character is pitted against a Soviet bully. Appearing on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Kerry urged Putin to be “very careful” as he plots

Kerry Kennedy has been found not guilty of drugged driving — and gave herself a hearty round of applause after jurors were dismissed from court by a Westchester County judge. The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom.

President Barack Obama has launched a new program to help African American boys and drew on the low points in his youth during a speech this afternoon. ´I made bad choices. I got high, not always thinking about the harm it could do. I didn´t always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses.

Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

A chilling video of Maryland police silencing an innocent student who was recording the arrests of two other people has civil libertarians outraged. The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First they told
