Obama Hits Romney For
'Politicizing' White House Failure

Investor's Business Daily, by Mark Steyn

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 10/13/2012 7:09:28 AM

The entire reason that this has become the political topic it is is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan." (Snip)The U.S. is the first nation in history whose democracy has evolved to the point where its leader is provided with a wide-body, trans-Atlantic jet in order to campaign on the vital issue of public funding for sock puppets. Sure, Caligula put his horse in the Senate, but it was a real horse.

I'm really getting more and more confident in Mitt saying "whoa...wait a minute there Tonto, YOU politicized that Iraq and Afghan wars for HOW many years and now I'm..."?

Yet it was quite okay, according to the Obama regime, to politicize the killing of Osama bin Laden. Of course, it was really the success of the US Armed Forces. But Obama took credit for the success as if he'd srormed the compound and pulled the trigger all by himself.

The American people are not buying this nonsense anymore, Barry O. Get off the stage already!

FTA: "Greater love hath no man than this," quoth the president at Chris Stevens' coffin, "that a man lay down his life for his friends." Smaller love hath no man than Obama's, than to lay down his "friend" for a couple of points in Ohio.

Ouch.

I doubt if more than 2% of the electorate realize that the White House & State Dept--under Shrillary and Obama--decided to use unarmed private contractors to protect our embassy in one of the most dangerous places on earth, and on the most dangerous day of the year.
They did so to be PC, to not give offense to the Libyans by a large armed presence.
And so, the February 17 Martyr's Brigade--a group with known terrorist connections-- were hired as private security contractors.
Kind of like hiring the Bloods or Crips to protect your stash in Watts.
This is beyond naive, beyond stupidity, beyond incompetency. This is treasonous dereliction of duty by the SOS and Commander in Chief

Many sad and infuriating parts to this blot on America's history, but a really sad part, #s 5 & 6, is that, based on the Luntz focus group we saw after the VP debate, Ohioans seem to be convinced by the constant, continuous shuck'n'jive out of this administration.

So the Mohammed-the-pervert film had nothing to do with the Benghazi raid. However, it DID have a lot to do with protests in the Mohammedan World which directly led to destruction, injuries and death.

And who publicized this film, drew world attention to it, pointed out how insulting it was to Muslims?

In other words, who instigated all those other riots?

Al-Qaeda or the Obama Administration?

New York Times, by Ron Nixon    Original Article
Posted By: pineledger- 8/6/2013 5:10:27 AM     Post Reply
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach

Sculptor Removes Phrase

Washington--The Chinese sculptor Lei Yixin finished removing a contentious phrase on the memorial for the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Thursday in preparation for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington at the end of the month. The phrase came from Dr. King’s “Drum Major Instinct” speech. It read, “I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness.” Critics of the memorial, including the poet Maya Angelou, said the phrase did not show the true nature of the full quotation.

Galesburg,IL--In a week when he tried to focus attention on the struggles of the middle class, President Obama said in an interview that he was worried that years of widening income inequality and the lingering effects of the financial crisis had frayed the country’s social fabric and undermined Americans’ belief in opportunity. (Snip)“If we don’t do anything, then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise,” he said. “That’s not a future that we should accept.”

Carson Refuses To Live
On Left´s Racist Plantation

Audacity: Renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson eloquently refuses to stay on liberalism´s black plantation. So, naturally, the left seeks his destruction. George Zimmerman´s prosecutors´ star witness, Rachel Jeantel — whose contentious, garbled testimony backfired badly — told CNN´s Piers Morgan of the jury that heard her, "They old. That´s old-school people. We in a new school, our generation." As she experiences her 15 minutes of fame, Jeantel would no doubt lump Benjamin Carson in with the "old-school people." But these two black Americans represent the different paths available to everyone in a free country, regardless of ethnicity.

No Big Surprise: Biased

President Obama is announcing for the umpteenth time he´s going to "pivot" to fixing the economy — as if that´s ever worked before, since it is he who broke it. That said, Obama will pivot to tiddlywinks if that´s what it takes to get out from under his mountain of scandals. (Snip)Here´s a fun fact: As a lawyer for the Washington law firm Wilmer Hale, Wilkins represented Rev. Wright´s Trinity United Church of Christ in 2007 when the IRS began asking questions about whether the tax-exempt church was too involved in political work for its most prominent member, Sen. Obama.

Trust: Why should anyone believe what the president says about ObamaCare? Last week he touted nonexistent rate cuts and rebate checks. And the White House now admits his promise about keeping your doctor was false. On Thursday, the president tried to shore up the ever-weakening support for ObamaCare by boasting about $100 rebate checks millions of Americans were supposedly getting in the mail thanks to the law´s restrictions on overhead spending by insurance companies. "Millions of Americans opened letters from their insurance companies," Obama said, and "were pleasantly surprised with a check." Not exactly.

Permits Soar to Allow
More Concealed Guns

A growing number of Americans are getting permission to carry firearms in public—and under their clothes—a development that has sparked concern among some law-enforcement authorities. Applications for "concealed-carry" permits are soaring in many states, some of which recently eased permit requirements. The numbers are driven in part by concern that renewed gun-control efforts soon could constrain access to weapons, along with heightened interest in self-defense in the wake of mass killings in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo.

The Obama administration is assembling a shortlist of candidates to lead the Federal Reserve, in the expectation that chairman Ben Bernanke won´t seek reappointment when his second term at the central bank ends in January, according to people familiar with the matter. (Snip)Mr. Bernanke has left his mark on the U.S. economy with a wave of easy-money policies in response to the 2008 financial crisis, recession and sluggish recovery that followed. His successor will need to figure out how to pull those policies back. If the Fed changes policy too soon, it could undermine the recovery.

Jon S. Corzine, no stranger to bare-knuckle brawls after spending nearly 40 years on Wall Street and in New Jersey politics, now faces the biggest fight of his career: a showdown with the United States government. (Snip)In another call that month, the global treasurer indicated that the firm’s liquidity “situation” was “not sustainable” and that “we have to tell Jon that enough is enough. We need to take the keys away from him.” If found liable, Mr. Corzine and Ms. O’Brien could face fines and possibly a ban from trading commodities.

A prominent corporate lawyer in Chicago has been accused by an Illinois disciplinary board of charging the firm for phony expenses, including about $70,000 in taxi trips, $35,000 in sporting events and a Thanksgiving celebration at his country club. Lee M. Smolen, a partner at DLA Piper, the world’s largest law firm, was named in a complaint filed this month by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission. Before joining DLA, Mr. Smolen was a longtime partner at Sidley Austin. (Snip) In 1988, Michelle Robinson was a young Sidley lawyer

(Snip)One [expert witness] concluded that the voice was not Mr. Zimmerman’s; the other said it was very likely Mr. Martin’s. In an order released on Saturday, the judge in the case, Debra S.

Appearing on This Week With George Stephanopoulos, Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert battled not only the Democratic panelists but also conservative pundit George Will over the wisdom of shutting down the government to prevent Obamacare funding. Gohmert strongly condemned President Barack Obama’s argument at Friday’s news conference that the GOP’s “holy grail” was enying millions of people health insurance. “That’s a false narrative,” Gohmert said. “He says we’re trying to keep people from having health care. That’s just not true. That is an absolute, blatant lie. We’re not trying to keep anybody from getting health care.

During his Wednesday appearance on Jay Leno´s "Tonight Show,´ President Obama made three factual gaffes; one of them involved the claim that cities not found along the Gulf of Mexico are. Were Obama a Republican, these gaffes would have led news coverage for the next forty-eight hours. Not only did most of the media ignore or downplay these gaffes; the Associated Press went so far as to cover one of them up. In its coverage Thursday, rather than point out the president´s geographical error, the wire service made it look as though no error was made.

Nobody tells Oprah she can´t afford a handbag. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest entertainers in the world, thanks to her willdly successful 25-season run on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and her latest media foray with the newly revitalized Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The entertainer earned an estimated $77 million from June 2012 to June 2013 alone, according to Forbes, but she says she still experiences racism because she is African American. Take this latest incident in Switzerland, where "The Butler" star went to attend the nuptials of good friend and singer Tina Turner last month.

The taxpayer-supported Missouri State Fair is getting a lot of negative publicity in social media Sunday following a report of a shameful stunt that occurred Saturday night in Sedalia. (Snip) Basically, a clown wearing a mask of Obama came out during the bull riding event. The crowd was asked if it wanted to see Obama “run down by a bull. Things got worse from there." Things got worse from there, which doesn’t surprise me, given the anti-Obama feeling among many fairgoers from rural Missouri, where Obama lost to Mitt Romney (at least 60-40 percent in much of outlying parts of state)

During a press conference yesterday, President Obama revealed the existence of a sealed indictment in the Benghazi attacks in Libya on September 11, 2012, leaving some experts questioning whether the president broke the law. Federal law states that ´no person may disclose [a sealed] indictment´s existence,´ and that doing so may be ´punished as a contempt of court,´ a charge that carries a minimum sentence of six months prison. The announcement came as a surprise to some insiders, as the existence of a sealed indictment has not been publicly confirmed or denied by law enforcement or

President Obama took his case for ending the sequester to hundreds of disabled veterans Saturday, saying he protected their benefits from the “reckless” cuts to the federal budget but suggesting next year might be different. “It’s hurting our military. I made it clear that your veteran’s benefits are exempt from this year’s sequester,” the president said to the applause of hundreds at the Disabled American Veterans´ convention in Orlando, Fla. “But I want to tell you going forward the best way to protect the VA care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester altogether.”

Instead, he will spend the next eight days playing golf, going to the beach, and buying books from the Bunch of Grapes bookstore.
