President Obama says he´s not the one who canceled the White House tours. He made the comments in an interview with ABC News. "[O]ne more question about the spending cuts," said the interviewer from ABC News. "You’ve been takin’ a lotta heat for this cancellation of the White House tours. They get– the Secret Service says it’s costs about $74,000 a week. Was canceling them really necessary?" "You know, I have to say this was not– a decision that went up to the White House."

Comments:
"I didn´t do it. No one saw me do it. You can´t prove anything."

Obama twice ran for president but is unwilling and incapable of accepting the responsibilities that go with the office.

He must believe he is still just a community organizer whose job it is to give speeches meant to manipulate and divide people.

Obama CERTAINLY does not know how to find SOLUTIONS to America´s serious problems including unsustainable debts, chronic unemployment and anemic economic growth.

What a LOSER America elected by voting for Obama.

Well of course not.

With today´s events in Rome, we should remember that Bronco is more humble, a greater servant of the people, than any Pope could hope to be. How could such a man close the People out of their house? I mean, really.

And he won´t rest until he finds "the real person who cancelled the tours." Ahem.

#10: Point of order: correct, Truman´s "S" is not the initial for a middle name. However, he did later adopt a period after the "S". Two confirming examples: the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and the USS Harry S. Truman [CVN 75] both employ the period. Thanks.

#13: Truman did usually put a period after the "S" but later confirmed that the "S" did not stand for any name but was a compromise between the names of his two grandfathers, Shipp and Soloman.

http://www.trumanlibrary.org/speriod.htm

I suppose if Clinton could change his name from William Jefferson Blythe III and Obama could change his name from Obama to Soetoro and then back to Obama, Truman could decide whether or not to use a period after his S.

BTW, the Harry S Truman National Historic Site in Missouri does not employ a period after the S.

What is telling here is that BO is impotent. While we KNOW he and his lackeys canceled the tours as a political stunt, even if he hadn´t and found out about it couldn´t the "most powerful man in the world" figure out a way to restore the tours and cut something else. Apparently not THIS president. He is a helpless victim of the nasty Republicans. Something this simple to fix and BO can´t manage it. He is so small and petty that he would rather punish the kids coming to Washington rather than act as an adult and find a true compromise.

Just as the blacks claimed lily-white clinton was the first black president, can we now claim obama as the first feminist president? My experience with feminists (not women, feminists)is that they are always the victim and their actions/mistakes are always someone else´s fault.

If he was telling the truth about this, he would have gratefully allowed Conservatives in the media who offered to pick up the slack with the cost of the tours to do so. But then, neither Obama is of the gracious sort. Instead they are petty, vengeful, and totally devoid of the milk of human kindness unless there is good PR in it for them.

Instead he has reacted in a petty, prideful way and dug in his heels. And you are right about the Secret Service #20. They do know how to bide their time.

From Clinton to Holder to Obama, you have to parse every syllable. There may have been just enough truth in what he said to get a "meaning of the word is" reality. Someone in the SS may have actually said something and, yes, Congress did allow the sequestration. He forgot, however, that sequestration was his idea and the SS can´t give the order. It would have taken a followup question to point that out but loyal Stephie would not ask it.

The Right Minimum
Wage: $0.00
New York Times, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: kennedylaw- 2/3/2014 11:37:31 AM     Post Reply
The Federal minimum wage has been frozen at $3.35 an hour for six years. In some states, it now compares unfavorably even with welfare benefits available without working. It´s no wonder then that Edward Kennedy, the new chairman of the Senate Labor Committee, is being pressed by organized labor to battle for an increase. No wonder, but still a mistake. Anyone working in America surely deserves a better living standard than can be managed on $3.35 an hour. But there´s a virtual consensus among economists that the minimum wage is an idea whose time has passed.

An edited video was released Monday that seemingly shows so-called health care Navigators encouraging people to lie on forms signing up for health care to get better rates. The video was released by Project Veritas, which was started by conservative activist James O´Keefe. O´Keefe gained notoriety for videos in 2009 that eventually brought down ACORN.

Evelina Gonzalez was supposed to undergo cancer surgery in July following chemotherapy but wound up shuttling from hospital to hospital in search of an available operating table. On the crest of her left breast, a mocha-colored tumor doubled in size and now bulges through her white spandex tank top. Gonzalez is on a list of 31 breast cancer patients waiting to have tumors removed at one of Venezuela´s biggest medical facilities, Maracay´s Central Hospital. But like legions of the sick across the country, she´s been neglected by a health care system doctors say is collapsing after years of deterioration.

The sun fired off an intense solar storm at Earth Wednesday (Aug. 21) — the second in two days — hurtling billions of tons of charged particles at our planet, but should not pose a threat to people on the ground, NASA says. The solar eruption, called a coronal mass ejection, occurred yesterday at 1:24 a.m. EDT (0524 GMT) and sent charged particles streaking outward at 380 miles per second. That´s just over 1.3 million mph (2.2 million km/h). The solar fallout from the sun storm is expected to reach Earth within the next three days.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
