She got it wrong. She interfered. She took a side. Candy Crowley may finally have done something else as well: so visibly tipping the scales of media bias that the end result makes Mitt Romney the next president. Taken all together, CNN's Candy Crowley, in her zeal to intrude on the presidential debate and save President Obama from himself, may just have provided the televised moment that finally sparks a revolt against the four years of fawning coverage of President Obama. Becoming to the liberal media what the Tet Offensive was to Lyndon Johnson and the Vietnam War.
She looked to me like the late John Candy in drag and her performance was a joke. Her response was so quick I believe it was coordinated with the WH. I also feel that little barry had all the questions in advance. I can't prove it but just got the feeling during the debate.
Obama's 4 weeks of steady lies about Benghazi, the complicit media's consistent coverup and media fog and finally Candy Crowley's over-the-top roll as a corrupt leftist moderator in the 2nd debate, provide what we call a 'teachable moment'.
Obama is a dangerous liar. The complicit leftist mainstream media is corrupt and biased beyond redemption.
If only the article were true. The MSM is already lying and spinning the facts into something that cannot be recognized as truth. I've already commented on my local fish wrapper lies. Those who get their news from the msm are in another world.
FTA: ''Add it all up, and Crowley's posture on Tuesday night was that of a pro-Obama participant, not the impartial moderator that voters expect.''
Great article Mr. Lord, but no one I know expected Crowley to be honest with America. The media's objective is still to get this America-hating clown re-elected and you know what? I don't think they even know why themselves, other than he's not a Republican. Honestly, the media types are really not all that bright.
No one can stay home. Everyone must vote if Obama is to be kicked out. Romney needs a indisputable majority everywhere in order to avoid a recount circus, refute Obama's agenda and to give Romney the mandate to clean house.
People are as weary of the Obama media as they are of the Obama agenda. The Misery Index has not been this high since the first Great Depression. Time to end the misery and get America back on track. Vote like your country depends upon it because it does.
The one thing which can be counted upon with these people is their unerring ability to destroy themselves. They will end up hanging themselves every time, because what they offer does not work, and their means are therefore necessarily corrupt.
The sad part is if she had read the transcript she had in her possession it would have destroyed the won, but she continued to lie to cover for the won. We all knew something was coming when the DNC objected to Candy.... It backfired, it helped Romney & hurt the so called journalist world. Lets see how many credible journalist will stand up & object to Candy's performance.
Assuming we outvote the dead and illegals and the zombified RAT voters and TAKE BACK our America from those who despise her,be ready for a massive reaction from the soon- to-be-really-disenfranchised moochers and leech class! Lock and load America, they may be heading to a city near you!
I guess I missed the memo but I don't understand why the debates are conducted only by MSM, with liberal moderators. If I were the Republican nominee, I'd say fine to one but the next one has to be with a more conservative moderator.
I've been hearing about the "tipping point", that moment when the anti-American MSM is finally exposed to Joe Sixpack, for years. I even believed it myself once. Let's face it: Joe & Jane Sixpack STILL get their information through the MSM filter. An informed electorate would have demanded accountability after Fast & Furious broke. An informed electorate would be demanding Crowley's head and her those of her bosses at CNN. The Honey BooBoos don't know or care.
Candy screened the questions prior to the debate. And she allowed that stupid woman to slur President George W. Bush, asking President Romney how he was different. There should have been an equivalent question to the kenyan klown about Carter. The 'assault weapons' ban question was out of place, and the libya question was a set up.
Above posters have it right about NerØbma' knowledge of the transcript. The Benghazi exchange in the debate highlighted the Emperor's lack of clothes and the media's excess of bias for all to see. Hopefully more voters will view what they are being fed by the media in a new light.
Jef if you think the media bias is over you must be smoking something illegal. It willnever stop too maney have been brain washed in school and in their jobs by the owners of the so called media.Its in there blood.
Yeah, I thought that was more than just suspicious when 0bama ordered Candy to read a transcript of a press conference from a couple of weeks prior, which he somehow knew that she, entirely by coincidence, had right there at her fingertips. Why, it was almost as if they had planned it in advance./s I guess Candy has her application in for 0bama's next press secretary.
My thoughts exactly #16. Obama coaxed Romney to keep going because he was waiting for the setup moment. When it came he told Candy to get the transcript. This was all preplanned. Everyone should be contacting CNN to complain about this. It is obvious it was preplanned and goes way beyond anything I have seen the media do since Rather and the typewriter. Clearly that didn't prevent them from continuing in their media bias, but in a debate, to benefit their hero??? EVERYONE MUST SPEAK OUT ON THIS!!! Sorry for yelling.
I discovered this "Tipping Point" the author writes about last night at a social event here in the city last night.
I'm a conservative who works in Manhattan, which is something akin to being a Christian living in Rome during the height of the Roman Empire.
I too was shocked by the overt bias by Crowley and revealed in the questions "chosen" to be asked during the debate. But again, work in Manhattan and I have little doubt that 60% of the people I work with- all highly educated white-collar types- have a political point of view far to the Left of mine. So, I avoided any water-cooler talk concerning the debate during the work day for fear of blowing my cover and endangering my own career prospects.
Then at a work/social last evening I happened upon a conversation by a large group of my co-workers- who are unabashedly liberal- discussing the tenor of Tuesday's debate. Almost to a person, they were dubious about the "undecided"-ness of the questioners, and were surprised at how much the questions asked were from a left-wing perspective. Then a lefty co-worker brought up Crowley's "moderating" and stated she was surprised the GOP signed off on her selection, then goes "That had to have been a set up with that transcript. You're telling me of all the speeches Obama and Romney have made - that's the single transcript she has at the ready?"
Again, I was gobsmacked!
None of these folks are going to change their votes and vote for Romney in three weeks, but what last night revealed to me is that if these folks can recognize this bias - even in their favor - millions of independents and others across the country recognized it as well.
Yes, # 16 and others making the same point: How did Obama know that Crowley had a transcript of his remarks in the Rose Garden?
This has bothered me from the moment Obama said, "Proceed" with that funny smirk on his face - like the cat that ate the canary. When he ordered Crowley, as if she were his secretary, to do his bidding and get the transcript, it all made sense.
#40 "None of these folks are going to change their votes and vote for Romney in three weeks, but what last night revealed to me is that if these folks can recognize this bias - even in their favor - millions of independents and others across the country recognized it as well."
That is what makes the job we have so hard. Do these Lefties think that they will somehow be spared in the tyranny that they will help to make possible? As someone posted elsewhere, this is "weapon's grade stupidity."
Regarding the transcript: I didn't and don't think Crowley actually had a transcript of some minor speech given in the Rose Garden. She's no genius, but she can't possibly be dumb enough to bring physical proof of her bias to a debate.
But Obama is dumb enough to let it out of the bag that there was pouring over transcripts looking for the word "terror" or "terrorism"... and Crowley somehow being aware of it.
Her rehearsed collusion was clear when Obama referred to "the transcript" and she instantly knew what to say. How would she know what he was talking about if not in on the lame attempt to claim Obama had called Benghazi a terrorist attack all along?
Too bad Romney didn't turn it on crowly and ask her why she had a transcript and how Solbama knew it. Disgustingly obvious. When will republicans stop allowing these liberal news pimps to interject themselves into supposedly honest discourse. I think I know why. Because democrats wont do a debate that isn't rigged in their favor.
The only thing Crowley tipped is the car she left the debate in... She violated the fairness of a clean debate... She should be removed from the media... Everyone like her also... We need honest GOD-FEARING media members to tell us what really happened in a news story
when I heard ''get the transcript'' I thought it might have been an arrogant throw away line. Like - ''I know what I said and I challenge you with the proof.'' But the next day I heard Candy say that she actually had the transcript and my brain said hmmmmmm. So, how did the Leader KNOW Candy had the transcript? another hmmmmm...
I worked for a huge media company for almost two decades. While there is no doubt that the vast majority of the editors and TV personalities supported Democrats, I also learned that much of what is thought to be conspiracy usually wasn't, but the way that Libya thing played out was very suspicious. Romney tries to get Obama to confirm the rose garden remark and FOR THE ONE AND ONLY TIME Obama doesn't interrupt but prompts Romney to CONTINUE, ceding him airtime. Then after Romney says it took two weeks, Obama asks Crowley to check the transcript. How did Obama know she just coincidentally happened to have that one particular transcript? Then, she actually MISQUOTES the transcript. Maybe all of that was happenstance but (and especially after all that so-called agreement between the two campaigns that Crowley wasn't supposed to interject at all) it doesn't pass the smell test to me.
Some Wiki background on the Pres. Debate Commission...
The organization, which is a nonprofit corporation controlled by the Democratic and Republican parties, has run each of the presidential debates held since 1988. The Commission is headed by Frank Fahrenkopf, a former head of the Republican National Committee, and former White House press secretary Michael D. McCurry. As of 2011, the Board of directors consists of Howard Graham Buffett, John C. Danforth, John Griffen, Antonia Hernandez, Caroline Kennedy, Newton N. Minow, Richard D. Parsons, Dorothy Ridings, and Alan K. Simpson.
They should lose their non-profit status and a class action lawsuit should be commenced by Tea Party activists, immediately
I believe that BO was talking to CC when he said, 'Get the transcript...Could you say that a little louder Candy?'. Why would he tell MR to get the transcript if he already knew that CC had it ready and waiting?
Rose Garden speech: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Nu6VZ9DeVc
BO on how our country 'respects all faiths and that we reject all efforts to denigrate the faiths of others', which seems to refer to the anti-muslim video. At the end he says, 'no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation', not specifically that this was an act of terrorism. IMO
The original question about Benghazi was, "...Who denied enhanced security, and why?" Obama's answer was irrelevant and Crowley had the irrelevant transcript to back him up. I'd like to know how she knew what he would answer and why would she have the transcript for the irrelevant answer.
Any one with half a brain knows this already. My friend and her family I consider total idiots in regards to politics. They do not follow any politics and they voted for Obama. She does not pay attention at all to current events at all and lives in a bubble. Interestingly enough her and her family are a bit racist, but also they believe what the Tee Vee tells them. When I think of how Obama won, I think of her.
'get the transcript'.....yeah, and right on target she had it.....how did she know this would come up???? And still, they had to lie! That dame should resign and change her first name.....eye candy she ain't!
#40, Republican tolerance of the inequities proves the simple "fact" that they're stupid. It's the cowardly dogma your cohorts and all progs believe. They truly live in an echo chamber, it explains how the Obama campaign could pull such outrageous behavior. Sure, there's a huge stink being raised by the right but most progs are totally unaware.
I haven't gone back to look at the actual transcript of the debate, but my impression of this exchange was that after Romney came back with the "let me get this straight" line and Obama had his scary eyes lasered on him, did he not say.. "Candy" first.. then Romney was still in his speech, and O said again right away.. "Candy" again followed by, "get the transcript". He was talking at the same time as Romney, so it was kind of hard to hear, but I was pretty clear in that Obama was directing Crowley when the question was brought up, to get it. They knew it would be brought up.. SHE picked the questions. Of course she didnt know if they would get to it, (they buried it late in the debate, Im sure hoping to run out of time), but no mistaking that she would be prepared anyway. I just wonder what other "facts" she had at her ready to dispute either candidate. Having the chance to ask follow-up questions was her agreement before the debate. If I remember correctly, this was changed a couple days before the debate and not the norm for this town hall style.
Did any undecided women notice how Obama dismissively ordered Candy to get the transcript ? " Get the transcript , Candy ! " made Obama sound like a misogynist used to treating women like servants. Romney , because he is a gentleman and also used to dealing with women in a professional work environment , would never have ordered Crowley around like that. The story that millions saw on for themselves while watching the debate was Obama's hyperactivity and snarky nastiness, his inability to answer questions , his high pitched , unmanly voice which signaled desperation and his beady snake eyes. If the executives at CNN had any ethics ( ha ! ) , Crowley would be suspended . Instead they have gushed over Crowley and excused her terrible behavior by saying Obama speaks slowly ( stuttering and uuuuhhhs ), that's why Crowley had to give him more time. Does CNN understand that by labeling Obama a slow talker , they reinforce that he requires a time handicap. In other words , he's not too bright. Paging Chris Matthews. If FOX moderated a debate and one of their anchors behaved the way Crowley did -cutting off Romney 28 times vs 9 times for Obama , acting as Obama's teleprompter , giving him more time, refusing to let Romney answer questions, always giving Obama the last word on any subject and selecting moron questions- that alone would get them suspended for unprofessional conduct. But, actually helping a presidential candidate answer a question by presenting fraudulent information would definitely get them fired. By just by FOX. CNN will probably promote Crowley.
"Get the transcript" sounds like something an office pit bull would bark at some poor thing from the typing pool.
Duh Wun showed his true colors about the way he views women. There to do his bidding. He's been carried around on a silver platter all his life by women, hidden behind women, and basically resents them for it.
Bet you Mitt doesn't order Ann around like that, or any other woman.
People saw exactly what was going on: A pathetic president who had to be bailed out by the moderator and couldn't go toe-to-toe like a man against Romney. That means anyone who needs help in a lousy debate really shouldn't be leading the free world. Romney smacks him down AGAIN!
The reason Romney was so perplexed during this particular part of the debate was because Obama and Crowley had obviously conspired to create a "gotcha" moment to trap him. How else would Crowley have been able to so quickly declare Barry correct? How would she have known that the president was going pull this bit of trivial semantics our of his rear end? They both knew their roles and they played them.
I am absolutely convinced that this was planned in advance by Crowley and the administration. Anyone who's read any of the exchanges from the now-defunct "Journolist" knows that many reporters actively seek advice from Democratic operatives on how to attack conservatives.
This bit of contrived theater was every bit as shameful as what Dan Rather tried to do to George W. Bush.
It was reported somewhere that Crowley spent some time at the White House before the debate, possibly a tutoring session. The flub-up on the terror question gives that away, Obie and Candy outsmarted themselves trying to spring the trap too quickly. It's just too bad that most people are too stupid to have picked that up and just saw Obama as a wise and tricky debater. But then if those same people weren't so stupid, he wouldn't have been in the White House in the first place.
agree w the article. Crowley episode is another in the sequence of exploding cigars that has been the Obama campaign, where each tactical victory becomes a vaster loss. Yet to be seen, again too late, is how all the flattery the WH has demanded of the media has itself contributed to Obama's defeat, never letting him see his position clearly. Flattery is more dangerous than persecution. Too late now.
After seeing the new Gallup poll, if it is anywhere near accurate, Romney now holding a 7% lead, and Romney now holding an electoral college lead, Obie is done and Moochelle should start packing for Chicago. Good riddance.
Our guys get CROWLEY'D there all the time! Who wants to see that? Watch Fox when you can stand it and stay here reading on Lucianne. One more silly debate, then...
Romney 53% LIAR 47%
Looking forward to:
1)Money market interest increase. 2)401K value increase. 3)Better returns on investments. 4)Value of home and property increasing. 5)Traditions being honored again. 6)Our standing in the world improving. 7)Our enemies on the run.
Yes, We can! And thank God we'll relegate that Indonesian liar and his mooch wife back to the south side of Chi ca-ca....where they belong!
Evidently, Obama panicked, probably because Candy didn't 'get the transcript' quickly enough, and felt he had to prompt her. It's obvious to a blind person that there was collusion. Am I the only one who can see this? I don't think so.
PS. I have no sympathy for the GOP, they should have boycotted the debate farce long ago. No moderators. No media people. A time keeper with a mute switch. Hold them on C-Span. This has been going on since Nixon. Man up, GOP and say Enough.
She was biased. She may have had Obama talking points. She cut off Mr Romney many more times than she did Obama. She interjected herself into help Obama and her points were incorrect, but she only retracted that point the next day. Furthermore, of had been paying attention, she would have known that Obama did Not answer certain questions he was asked. He just rambled. She should have made him answer the questions, such as why the security was pulled from the Libyan city where the terror attack occurred. She presented a partisan moderator and since she represented CNN, she should be put on suspension until she can trained to present a fair/balanced neutral position.If CNN wishes to post the fact they they are in fact a left wing media outlet, then that is a different story. In that case, they would finally be telling the truth.
Look all around the edges for other perspective. Although, I would like to know why she went to the White House and what was said. a date with the most powerful man on earth might goes to a girls head.
She had some paper and some have suggested the obama camp provided her transcripts (I wouldn't kick a dog on the evidence of a partisan/participant provided transcript)--remember the Birth Certificate which names obama's father where the name on original is probably "unknown".)
What was really telling in body language and her response was his appeal to her and her facilitating him. It was the connection of her obedience to a superior in the human hierarchy that was telling. Subtle but instinctive more than coordinated between the two liberals in advance IMO.
Her own self interest would have been to do it up right as a journalist. But she responded to his cue/appeal as a female or friend.
Mesmerized and utilized. He tried the same on Raddatz.
The Texas Republican Party is reopening the filing period for Rep. Steve Stockman´s (R-Texas) congressional district after his last-second decision to run instead against Sen. John Cornyn (R). Stockman filed for Cornyn´s seat rather than reelection just minutes before the state´s legal filing deadline Monday night, giving aspiring politicians in the district no heads up that he was doing so. The party´s move gives candidates an additional week, with the new filing deadline set for next Monday. Texas Republican Party spokesman Spencer Yeldell said the party was reopening the filing because it´s required by Texas´s election code. Stockman is facing a steep uphill
Hill staffers that signed up for ObamaCare through the Washington, D.C., healthcare exchange, called DC Health Link (DCHL), are being told to confirm their enrollments in person, and not to rely on data provided by the website. The Hill obtained an email sent to staffers on Wednesday warning them that “it is essential that you confirm your coverage in DCHL through the Disbursing Office.” “Do not rely on your ‘My Account’ page or other correspondence from DCHL,” the email reads. “Please do not assume you are covered unless you have seen the confirmation letter from the Disbursing Office,” the email continues.

The Obama administration expedited visa applications for about two dozen foreign investors for a Las Vegas casino hotel after pressure from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his staff, the Washington Times reported Tuesday. The Times, citing internal government documents, said the decision to overturn a prior, normally non-appealable visa decision ultimately benefited several companies whose executives have been heavy Democratic donors. The paper said it also came despite concerns about “suspicious financial activity” involving some Asian applicants. Reid, who represents Nevada, personally reached out to the top official at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Alejandro Mayorkas, setting in motion a process that
California’s budding doctor rebellion against Obamacare appears to be genuinely spontaneous, lacking leadership from a single individual or organization. As the Washington Examiner has reported in recent days, an estimated 70 percent of California´s physicians -- ranging from general practitioners to specialists -- are "just saying no" to Obamacare´s Covered California health insurance exchange. Although it appears leaderless, some observers believe that very spontaneity may make the doctor rebellion a formidable force in California’s health-care future. “Doctors are realizing what is happening and spontaneously they are acting like this. There’s a movement growing,” said Sally Pipes, president of the San Francisco-based
Democrats make a lot of silly statements. The trick isn’t finding a pronouncement by a liberal politician which — in a way nearly unique to politics — simultaneously brings a grimace, a giggle, and a groan, but figuring out whether the speaker is an outright liar or just living in a liberal echo chamber reminiscent of Pauline Kael (or at least the political mythology surrounding her). Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is a reliable representative of the outright liar camp: No echo is loud enough to make her actually believe that Democratic candidates will
It’s long been said that Democrats and their supporters who cry “racism!” at everything that smells like opposition to their left-wing agenda are misguided, or in some cases, smear merchants who lack all credibility whatsoever (looking at you, MSNBC). Well, get a load of the T-shirt that this recently departed national figure – whose impeccable left-wing bonafides should never be doubted – has on:(Snip for photo)That’s anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela wearing a T-shirt that endorses getting an ID and voting in 1998. We’ll anxiously be waiting your apology. Oh wait, you won’t apologize, will you?
No, Obamacare isn’t Katrina for Democrats. Katrina was an act of God and/or nature, a phenomenon beyond the control of mere human beings, a catastrophe not of choice, but of nature’s necessity, outside the realm of man’s will. George W. Bush didn’t cause it to happen, nothing he did could have made it not happen, and he surely did not make it worse. The federal response wasn’t inspired, but the reason this mattered was that the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana were not only perhaps the two stupidest people ever to hold public office, but the stupidest people
You know a president is in deep trouble when even an improving economy can’t boost his popularity. That’s the situation facing Barack Obama, as optimism about a less anemic recovery in the coming year has done nothing to halt the slide in his approval numbers. With every poll showing him in deep trouble, it’s time for the White House to call in reinforcements and that’s what they’ve done by getting former Bill Clinton chief of staff John Podesta to return to the West Wing as a counselor. Podesta, a veteran liberal ideologue as well as a friend of current White
Apparently having decided to embark upon a course of self-parody, the National Reconnaissance Office — the other NRO — sent out a press release sharing the logo for its new spy-satellite program, NROL-39. The image is that of an evil-looking giant octopus with its tentacles encircling the entire planet over the motto: Nothing Is beyond Our Reach.(Snip)Our relationship with the national-security and public-safety bureaucracies has changed. It used to be that you called the fireman to get your cat out of a tree; now the policeman shoots your dog. We have police rolling through the streets of such combat zones
Soweto, the Johannesburg suburb where popular resistance to apartheid set off the revolution that changed South Africa and established Nelson Mandela as the father of a new country, is the most dangerous place on the continent this week. Anyone who ventures into the street risks being crushed by the hordes of official visitors trying to get in front of a camera. It’s difficult for a hardworking president, prime minister, movie star, rap artist or mere dictator to set himself apart from the crowd of mourners, grievers and lamenters in town to exploit the ultimate photo-op. President Obama did it, however, with
It’s almost time for the first anniversary of the massacre in Sandy Hook. Naturally the Obama-run state media will be giving it round-the-clock coverage. Barack’s servile sycophants in the mainstream media will do anything to keep the low-information voters’ attention diverted from how they’re getting blued and tattooed by Dear Leader. As the common nightwalkers of the press get ready for their latest anti-gun crusade, let’s not forget who’s co-sponsoring the TV spots — Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG). This organization was founded by two mayors who are now lame ducks, one of whom is Mumbles Menino. The money guy behind MAIG is
On the five-year anniversary of Bernie Madoff outing himself as the world’s most notorious white-collar criminal, the financial world still hasn’t learned some simple lessons. First, business journalists should stop listening to the fraudster himself. His multibillion-dollar scam caused at least three people to take their own lives, including his son Mark — yet Madoff remains mostly unrepentant and uncooperative. He continues to blame “the greed of others” and loves to offer his opinions on how Wall Street really works. That wouldn’t be so bad if Madoff pulled a Sammy “the Bull” Gravano and came clean about his misdeeds by giving the
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a

A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats.

President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
