Psaki: Obama has ‘no regrets’
about ‘revenge’ comment

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/5/2012 4:47:50 PM

President Obama has “absolutely no regrets” about saying that “voting is the best revenge” when he asked Ohioans to get to the polls over the weekend, his spokeswoman said. “The president never regrets making the case to the American people that if they don’t like the plans Mitt Romney is offering, if they don’t like the raw deal he’s offering to the middle class, that they have the power to vote and cast their vote, their ballot at the voting booth,” Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Air Force One today, per the pool report. “That was exactly

Hmmm... wonder what Jen has to say about the pesky Benghazi thing?

Voting for revenge will look really dumb when the "revenge-voters" lose tomorrow night.

Then we get to watch Chris Matthews and the others on MSNBC wear straight jackets as they foam at the mouth.

It's not the liberals who are owed revenge. It is the conservatives. And I have no regrets about saying it either.

What are voters getting even with Romney about? A speech? Romney didn’t give them the current economy or the tenuous nature of their employment. The only person at whom revenge can be directed is the one who actually affected their lives – for the worse.

The whole Jeep thing is weird. Chrysler received US bailout funds, then sold out to Fiat in Italy, who is now looking at opening manufacturing in China. IOW – following the path of “outsourcing jobs” as defined by Democrats. The point is not that Fiat is closing plants in Ohio, but that they are planning to open manufacturing plants that will NOT be in the USA. That obviously reduces any chance of expanding operations here. Pretty simple – and the kind of thing Democrats claim to hate. Yet here they are defending it. Go figure.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance. Yet his fellow golfers do not sound relieved. They do not act as if reprieved. They spoke of this giant, haunting presence with neither fear nor reverence.(Snip)"He´s 38 now, he´s an old man," said Jason Day, the media

Another day, another terrifying computer security vulnerability. A hole in a widely used encryption technology has given hackers a way to infiltrate many of the world’s largest websites and download sensitive information from their servers without leaving a trace. The problem, dubbed Heartbleed, has existed for two years, but was recently discovered by researchers at Google, setting off a scramble to fix it. Trying to track new security vulnerabilities can be dizzying, but here’s why this one is worth paying attention to: It affects services you use.

A 33-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after her vehicle struck a Los Angeles Police Department motorcycle officer from behind at a red light, leaving him pinned between two vehicles Saturday, officials said. The officer was waiting for the traffic light at Saticoy Street and Lankershim Boulevard (map) about 5:30 p.m. when an SUV rear-ended him, according to the LAPD. The officer was pinned between the SUV and the vehicle in front of him.

IN A major development in the search for MH370, Angus Houston has confirmed the Ocean Shield has detected signals consistent with aircraft black boxes, describing the lead as the most promising yet. Air Chief Marshal Houston called the development significant, saying “this is the most promising lead, probably in the search so far, it’s probably the best information we’ve had”. The search coordinator told reporters more signals have been detected by a towed pinger locator deployed by the Australian vessel Ocean Shield. “Today, I can report some very encouraging information which has unfolded over the last 24 hours,” he told

THE missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 may have flown around Indonesian airspace on the night it disappeared, in what may have been a deliberate attempt to avoid radar detection. CNN reported a senior Malaysian government source saying that the missing jet made the detour after it had left the range of Malaysian military radar. The latest details emerged as new satellite calculations put the likely location of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in the same spot where Chinese patrol vessel Haixun 01 detected sounds coming from about 4,500m underwater on two consecutive days.

White House considering ban

Thanks to Samsung, the White House may be saying sayonara to the selfie. The photograph Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz took last week of himself with Barack Obama might have been the last ever presidential selfie, a White House aide said Sunday. Ortiz took the selfie with Obama Tuesday during the team’s visit to the White House. The pic appeared spontaneous at the moment, but it was revealed a day later that the act, taken with Ortiz’s Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone, was actually a public relations stunt orchestrated by the Korean telecom conglomerate. “Maybe this will be the end of all

The Dangerous Absurdity of

An eye-catching A.P. story, published Thursday, revealed that, in 2010, the United States Agency for International Development (U.S.A.I.D.) covertly deployed a social-media program in Cuba in the hope of bringing about a Cuban Spring. The network, called ZunZuneo, was offered to Cubans via the country’s mobile-phone network as a free text service, and attracted forty thousand subscribers before mysteriously ending operations in 2012. The contractors who ran the program are said to have concealed its U.S.-government origins via an offshore system of front companies and foreign servers, and to have collected data on subscribers’ “political tendencies” and “receptiveness,” among other

Unlike other spy matters, Senate’s

WASHINGTON — The toxic partisanship that’s paralyzed most Washington lawmaking for years often spared congressional consideration of intelligence matters. Not this time. Not when the topic is the CIA’s use of enhanced interrogation techniques _ widely regarded as torture _ against detainees who were suspected terrorists.(Snip) Republicans saw the report as largely an indictment of a Bush-era policy, he said, and because the program is now defunct, it became easier to make political points.

Rodriguez Jr. is the former head of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service and the author of “Hard Measures: How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives.” People might think it is wrong for me to condemn a report I haven’t read.

On Thursday, the Senate Intelligence Committee voted to declassify and release hundreds of pages of its report on U.S. terrorist interrogation practices. Certain senators have proclaimed how devastating the findings are, saying the CIA’s program was unproductive, badly managed and misleadingly sold. Unlike

A Chinese ship searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 detected a "pulse signal" in the southern Indian Ocean Saturday, but there was no evidence yet that it was linked to the missing plane, state media said. The signal picked up by the vessel´s black box detector had a frequency of 37.5kHz per second, the official Xinhua news agency said -- identical to the beacon signal emitted by flight recorders.

EVERETT, Wash. — As medical examiners painstakingly piece together the identities and lives of the people killed when a mudslide wiped out a small Washington community, a mystery troubles them. One of the 30 bodies found does not fit with descriptions on the missing persons list, which, as of Thursday included 15 people, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff´s Office. The only clue to the man´s identity is his gold molars, said Heather Oie, operations manager at the Snohomish County Medical Examiner´s Office. He might have been someone who was on the highway or going for a hike.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
