Obama Sits by His Man Biden
After Book’s Scathing Critique

ABC News, by Arlette Saenz

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/9/2014 4:46:57 AM

A picture was truly worth a thousand words at the White House today. Just one day after former Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ contempt for Vice President Joe Biden’s foreign policy acumen spilled from between the covers of his 640-page memoir, President Obama and the vice president hardly had to say a word to get their message across. The White House granted the press rare access to the normally private weekly lunch between the pair. They sat across from each other at a large dining table in the private dining room just off the Oval Office, a symbolic show of support from

All Gates did was state the obvious. Biden has been wrong about every foreign policy issue, heck every tissue for that matter, during his entire life as a LoFo politician. Had the Kneepads done their job, this wouldn´t be a shocking revelation.

When Obama took Biden for a VP.it was done under the guise that Biden is a foreign policy expert just because he squatted on a government panel for so long. People don´t understand human behavior by osmosis,you have to have natural insight to it.

The idea that you can have outreach and other forms of coddling Islamics proves you aren´t a well grounded person in understanding their long term plans.

Bush had these people beat back to nothing and now it´s a free for all with Obama´s blessing on radical elements.

William Saletan has a compelling piece in Slate today: More than 35,000 people gave money to the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that declared, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” You can download the entire list, via the Los Angeles Times, as a compressed spreadsheet..."

Brendan Eich is gone. The creator of JavaScript and co-founder of mozilla.org has quit as Mozilla’s CEO, forced out by the uproar over a donation he made six years ago to a ballot measure against gay marriage. There’s no record of Eich discriminating against gay employees—“I never saw any kind of behavior or attitude from him that was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness,” says the company’s chairwoman, Mitchell Baker. In fact, last week, Eich pledged, I am committed to ensuring that Mozilla is, and will remain, a place that includes and supports everyone, regardless of sexual orientation,

I subscribe to the Sportsman Channel because, as an incorrigible Canadian, I wanted the NHL network, although I keep it in part because of NFL RedZone. And so last night I found myself in the sports tier of my cable television package, watching the debut of the network´s newest show, Amazing America with Sarah Palin. Professionally making money from grassroots Republicans inevitably involves trolling liberals, something in which Sarah Palin is an expert, albeit with diminishing returns as her brief period of political relevance recedes. While there´s a certain trolling subtext to her new show, it´s mostly below the surface. I

Ky. Senate hopeful Bevin
spoke at cockfight rally

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Stepping into an issue on the political fringes, Republican Senate candidate Matt Bevin spoke at a Kentucky rally meant to build support for legal cockfighting, a bloody practice illegal nationwide. The tea party-backed challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell portrayed the event last Saturday as a states´ rights rally, but his appearance among cockfight backers prompted one animal-rights group to call on Bevin to withdraw from the May 20 GOP primary. The McConnell campaign scoffed at Bevin´s description of the event. "Only Matt Bevin would go to a cockfighting rally and claim he didn´t know what they were doing

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder told a House Appropriations subcommittee on Friday that his department doesn’t have a “formal relationship” with a controversial Islamic group while a chairman argued that an interpretation of the law has inexplicably tied the Pentagon’s hands in nabbing the Benghazi attackers. At a hearing to review the Justice Department’s FY 2015 budget request, Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Chairman Frank Wolf (R-Va.) reminded Holder, the sole witness, that last year the DOJ was “directed to follow the lead of the FBI to keep distance between government officials and individuals or organizations

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.

Fuzzy math from administration
over ObamaCare?

Although the president and his aides trumpeted the ObamaCare enrollment figures as a success, the administration did not always see those numbers as something to brag about. In his Rose Garden appearance this week, Obama seemed elated to proclaim "7.1 million Americans have now signed up for private insurance plans through these marketplaces." But it remains unclear how many of those sign ups have paid premiums in order to be officially enrolled, or how many were previously uninsured. In addition, even though officials are celebrating the 7 million mark,the White House once minimized numbers twice that large-- the 14 million people in the

Tyson is recalling 75,320 pounds of chicken nuggets after some customers complained about finding small pieces of plastic in their food. The recall includes Tyson 5-pound bags of frozen, white meat chicken nuggets that were sold at Sam´s Club stores across the country. Complaints of plastic pieces in the nuggets were received by a "small number of customers," the company said Friday. The problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine, according the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The affected chicken nuggets were produced on two days, Jan. 26 and Feb.16, on a single line at one of the company´s 40

SEATTLE -- The warnings could hardly have been clearer. One technical report told of the "potential for a large catastrophic failure" of the 600-foot hillside above a rural neighborhood near Oso, on the Stillaguamish River. Another noted plainly that it "poses a significant risk to human lives and private property." The danger was so apparent that Snohomish County officials mulled buying out the properties of the residents who lived there. Instead, the county continued to allow the construction of homes nearby. Seven went up even after a significant slide approached the neighborhood in 2006. Whatever the wisdom of its decision,

Shock Jocks Opie & Anthony Reduce ObamaCare To

The irreverent hosts of the Opie & Anthony Show absolutely torched ObamaCare on their SiriusXM Radio program Thursday after both of their healthcare plans were cancelled. After Greg “Opie” Hughes, who has a wife and 2 kids, said that like his co-host Anthony Cumia, he too had lost his plan, it was game on. Opie complained to Anthony that his health plan had finally been “perfect.” Anthony then sarcastically accused Opie of “lying” for saying he liked his plan – a not so subtle swipe at Harry Reid, who claimed last month that all “tall tales” about ObamaCare were “lies.” Their tirade covered

Democratic Rep.

Standing in front a table piled with liquor bottles at a fundraiser in Texas in January, Braley boasted: “If you help me win this race, you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice -- someone who´s been literally fighting tort reform for 30 years in a visible and public way -- on the Senate Judiciary Committee.” He didn´t stop there.

In case you haven’t heard, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Shaun McCutcheon’s case, which argued that aggregate caps on campaign financing restricted his free speech. He was permitted by law to give no more than $2,600 to no more than nine candidates in an election cycle. If he liked a tenth candidate? Too bad. Giving to the tenth would

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

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

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

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´s no two ways about it: the Dodge Dart isn´t selling. Just a year after its debut -- a debut heralded loudly throughout the automotive world -- the Dart´s sales were pretty dismal. Many of you vented about the compact model, complaining about things as varied as its so-so looks to its iffy ancestor. (Snip) Trucks and SUVs were a different story. On that front, sales were up 30 percent for the year, and March rang in a whopping 34 percent above March 2013, thanks in part to strong performances by the Ram pickup, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the
