NY Times Celebrates Obama’s
Aggressive Negotiating Style,
Work-Golfing

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 10:27:05 AM

On Monday, the New York Times updated its readers on the status of the ongoing negotiations between the White House and Congressional Republicans to strike a deal which would resolve the upcoming fiscal cliff. The Times’ review of the state of negotiations reads more like cheerleading for President Barack Obama’s newly-energetic negotiating style. The Times does not dwell on the fact that the White House’s entry into negotiations has scuttled progress and obliterated a rapidly coalescing bipartisan consensus around tax increases coupled with entitlement reforms which many prominent members of Congress had

Of course they do. What else would you expect from an arm of the DNC.

...Rush has called them the "state-controlled media". It´s moved beyond that. They are wholly owned. Ministry of Information is more like it nowadays...

President Obama met with Pope Francis for the first time this morning, and the two leaders exchanged gifts - Obama gave Francis fruit and vegetable seeds, and the Pope gave Obama a copy of Evangelii Gaudium. At the beginning of their meeting, before the gift exchange, President Obama sat down at Francis´ desk and said, "It is a great honor. I´m a great admirer. Thank you so much for receiving me." Obama gave Francis a symbolic gift of seeds from the White House fruit and vegetable garden. "These I think are carrots," Obama said as held a seed pouch. "Each one has a

President Obama will discuss climate change in an upcoming Showtime documentary series produced by James Cameron. Mashable reports the segment with Obama will offer an exclusive understanding of the president´s thoughts on climate science and policy. Showtime taped the interview last week, individuals close to the documentary "Years of Living Dangerously" said. The series premieres April 13. This will be the first interview Obama has given solely on climate change since announcing his administration´s climate agenda last year. Cameron´s documentary focuses on the scientific aspects of multiple climate change threats. The project, funded in part by Cameron´s Avatar Alliance Foundation, was filmed in a

Astronomers have nicknamed a new dwarf planet circling the sun at the outer edges of the solar system after Vice President Joe Biden. According to Nature, a leading scientific journal, the object´s official designation is 2012 VP113. But the team studying its orbit around the sun colloquially refer to the planet as just "VP" or "Biden," after the sitting vice president. The object won´t carry an official title until scientists collect more data. After determining its orbit, they´ll submit a formal name to the International Astronomical Union (IAU) for consideration. The Biden dwarf is the second such object to be

REPORTER: Let me ask you about this deadline. In March, I was just watching the tape, you testified that you would not deadline this March 31st deadline, just a little bit ago. So what happened? Is this an extension? Is this a delay? Is this another problem? KATHLEEN SEBELIUS: It´s none of the above. It´s actually a very logical way to make sure people get through the system. What we did in December, we´re doing again. Which is to say if you´re in line on March 31 at midnight, if you´re trying to get through the system and the volume

GOP candidate for Calif. governor

At the California Republican Party’s convention earlier this month, chairman Jim Brulte announced 2014 would be the year of “pushing the party outside of its comfort zone,” and introduced four candidates vying to take on incumbent Gov. Jerry Brown in November. One of those candidates may be way outside that comfort zone -- a businessman, who also is a registered sex offender who served a decade in prison for voluntary manslaughter. Glenn Champ, who is listed as an “engineer and businessman” on the state election website, has a lengthy rap sheet. He was nabbed for picking up an underage prostitute

Two Boston firefighters were killed Wednesday in a fire that ripped through a brownstone in a densely-populated neighborhood, a city councilor says. The fire started shortly before 3 p.m. in the four-story building in the city´s Back Bay area. Smoke and flames fanned by strong winds poured from the roof and windows for hours. Councilor Josh Zakim, who represents the area, confirmed the firefighters´ deaths. Details of how the firefighters died weren’t immediately available, The Boston Globe reported. But some firefighters had been trapped in the burning building’s basement, officials said. The Boston Police Patrolman´s Association tweeted condolences to the Boston Fire Department early

Ruling: Kansas Can Strip

A federal appeals court on Tuesday ruled that Kansas can strip two Planned Parenthood clinics of federal family planning money while the organization moves forward with its legal challenge of a state law it says is retaliation for its advocacy of abortion rights. Kansas is among several conservative states that have sought in recent years to strip Planned Parenthood of funding. At issue in Tuesday´s ruling is money distributed to states under Title X, a federally financed family planning program. The Title X money targets low-income individuals seeking reproductive services such as birth control, pregnancy testing, cancer screenings and treatment for

Democrats have only themselves to
blame for the failure of Obamacare
Washington Examiner, by Noemie Emery    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/26/2014 8:18:52 PM     Post Reply
Since the start of the year, when it at last became clear that an ill-designed website was merely the least of Obamacare´s problems, Democrats have been on a search for a plausible villain on whom this sad state of affairs can be blamed. E.J. Dionne blames Republican nastiness, but he blames this for everything. Alec MacGillis at the New Republic blames Republican governors who rejected the expansion of Medicare: "Obamacare is hurting Democratic candidates because Republicans are hurting Obamacare," runs his article´s headline. Well, that explains why the exchanges in Maryland, Oregon and Colorado are all in such chaos: If

Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson said Tuesday that the United States “should be pleased” about Russia annexing the Crimea, calling it “a virtually bloodless transfer of power.” At a Foreign Affairs Committee mark-up Tuesday, Grayson said that the referendum in Crimea was the entirely legitimate vote by a group of people who were upset that their chosen leader, ousted Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, had been removed from office. The role of Russian forces, in his telling, was simply that of peacekeeper. “You may say that [Yanukovych] was thrown out of office for good reason. There are allegations against him that he was

Obama To Explain Religious Liberty
Attacks To Pope Francis?

Politics: The president journeys to the Vatican following assaults on religious liberty from Hobby Lobby to the Little Sisters of the Poor and an unrelenting attack on the First Amendment´s religious freedom guarantees. President Barack Obama travels to Vatican City to meet Pope Francis for the first time on Thursday, no doubt hoping for a bump in the polls among Catholic voters this November and a Papal blessing in his change-the-subject-from-ObamaCare focus on income inequality. The visit comes as the Supreme Court considers whether family owned-businesses such as Hobby Lobby can be forced to defy the religious beliefs of their owners by

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

Six months ago, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa subpoenaed the emails of former head of IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied.

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.
