    Barack and Michelle Obama sent a goodwill message to Prince William and bride-to-be Kate Middleton today during an interview about their own private lives. The U.S. First Lady said William and Miss Middleton looked like best friends, adding: ‘Hopefully you will be as happily married as Barack and I.’. During a TV interview the president and his wife talked at length about their family life and Mr Obama said of his 12 and nine-year-old daughters Malia and Sasha. Their daughters preferred just to be kids, the Obamas said, and avoid listening to the news or reading newspaper headlines.

    Here is video of First Lady Michelle Obama being asked by Barbara Walters if she ever thinks “one-term” is enough? Michelle responds that she believes her husband needs to “finish what he started,” and said he is exactly the kind of person we need as President: “If I had to pick the man I’d want to be in politics – the kind of person that we seek out in this country – somebody who’s honest and sincere and smart as a whip – he would be the person I would pick, and that has always been why I followed him...

    Politico ^ | 11/4/10 | John F. Harris
    A young Democratic president comes into office with big ambitions, gets knocked back on his heels by Republicans in the midterm elections, then makes some deft moves to recapture the center and waltzes to reelection two years later. It sounds easy enough. And after Tuesday night’s humiliation, it must sound tempting to President Barack Obama and his battered political team. (Snip) But the widespread speculation that what Obama needs to do now is simply “pull a Clinton” —replicating Bill Clinton’s comeback after being trounced by Newt Gingrich in 1994 — grossly underestimates the challenge that Obama faces

    We carried a graphic in today’s Telegraph that showed how different presidents scored in the polls at the time of the mid-terms in their first term. The good news for Barack Obama seems to be that however bad things look for him, they were a lot worse for Ronald Reagan in ‘82 and Bill Clinton in ‘94, yet both went on to cruise to a second term. If the Republican/Tea Party combine does as well as expected tomorrow, and if Sarah Palin presses home her advantage to take the Republican nomination for president, then think Goldwater and put your money...

    Hours before a scheduled scolding by House Republican Leader John Boehner in Ohio, President Barack Obama said Monday that he should have used the word ‘opponents’ instead of ‘enemies’" in a Univision radio interview. “Now the Republicans are saying that I'm calling them enemies,” Obama said during a get-out-the-vote to The Michael Baisden Show. “What I'm saying is you’re an opponent of this particular provision, comprehensive immigration reform, which is something very different.” In the earlier interview, Obama said: "If Latinos sit out the election

    The Taj is shutting its doors to other guests as it readies itself for its most important one. But the arrival of Barack Obama doesn’t have the hotel’s staff excited. Reason? For the two days the US president and his entourage will be at the Taj, the staff will be under virtual house arrest. Worse, they can’t keep their mobile phones with them... all 570 rooms in the hotel have been booked for the duration of Obama’s visit... The rooms adjacent, above and below the presidential suit will be occupied by FBI agents — 700 of whom will accompany the...

    WASHINGTON — A Sikh American group on Friday criticized President Barack Obama for canceling a visit to the faith's holiest temple, saying he missed a "teachable moment" to encourage respect among religions. Obama was initially expected to visit the Golden Temple in Amritsar where he would be required to cover his head in line with Sikh custom. But a diplomatic official in New Delhi told AFP that he would not go to Amritsar, apparently in part due to concerns that the images would revive false claims spread by some of Obama's adversaries that he is Muslim.

    Commentary Magazine ^ | 10/18/10 | Peter Wehner
    In the well-known line from the movie A Few Good Men, Jack Nicholson tells Tom Cruise, “You can’t handle the truth!” It appears as if President Obama is finding himself in a similar predicament. I base this conclusion on the president’s comments at a fundraising event on Saturday in West Newton, Massachusetts, where he said this: Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared

    It is interesting and disappointing that so many politicians treat "faith" -- at least the Christian faith -- as a poison pill they cannot touch, much less swallow. Republicans often run from it because of PC intimidation, and Democrats because it's in their DNA to do so. There was a revealing exchange touching on this subject in the Delaware U.S. Senate debate between Christine O'Donnell and Chris Coons. O'Donnell said, "But regardless of my personal faith, when I go down to Washington, D.C., it is the Constitution that I will defend and it is by the Constitution that I will...

    Just in case anyone mistakenly believes Obama has heard (or gives a rip about) the loud voice of the American people rejecting his socialism, appeasement, unconstitutional abuses of power and unpresidential combativeness and divisiveness, let me share a few tidbits. --After House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, issued a damning critique of Obama's economic policies, the administration's economic philosopher Joe Biden issued a rebuttal, assuring us it was their predecessor who got us into this mess.

    A U.S. terror alert issued this week about al-Qaida plots to attack targets in western Europe was politically motivated and not based on credible new information, senior Pakistani diplomats and European intelligence officials have told the Guardian. The non-specific US warning, which despite its vagueness led Britain, France and other countries to raise their overseas terror alert levels, was an attempt to justify a recent escalation in US drone and helicopter attacks inside Pakistan that have "set the country on fire", said Wajid Shamsul Hasan, the high commissioner to Britain.

    By wearing a familiar mask of convention, Barack Obama will continue to dupe the majority of Americans into believing that he is -- at worst -- a run-of-the-mill, far-left liberal, even though he is not. Picking up on the recent Forbes magazine article written by Dinesh D'Souza, Newt Gingrich concluded that Mr. Obama's ideology is probably far beyond the realm of mainstream American thinking. In an interview done for NRO, Mr. Gingrich was quoted as asking, "What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior can you begin to piece together [his actions]?"...

    The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex. The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling – however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011... Because AIDS researchers have been...

    I never expected President Barack Obama to be promoting my new book, "Crimes Against Liberty," but that's virtually what's happened with his recent speeches on the economy. It's as if he's determined to validate every premise I assert in "Crimes Against Liberty." All the elements are there: his thin-skinned narcissism, his deceit, his militant partisanship, his bullying and his dogged adherence to his disastrous policy agenda against all evidence of its failure and against the express will of the American people. His full-throated class warfare was on clear display. With him, it's always us against them. He praised "Wisconsin's working...

Completely reasonable, yet don't keep your fingers crossed, especially with the Obama administration's attitude toward Israel. In my new book, "Crimes Against Liberty" (I know, another shameless plug, but you'd do the same in my position), I dedicate an entire chapter to detailing the Obama administration's horrendous and unprecedented mistreatment of Israel. Can you believe we're even having a discussion about Israel's right...

    Does Obama’s anti-democratic ideology result from his dysfunctional childhood? An intriguing book, Faith of the Fatherless: The Psychology of Atheism, by Paul Vitz, argues this type background is a common precursor to the classic tyrant’s personality. This suggests Barack’s beef with America might result from his own deficient past. Does it matter the source of our politician’s mental makeup? Of course it does. After all, we expect leaders to make policy based on empirical knowledge, not just knee-jerk reaction to past trauma. For example, would Americans be pleased if the president outlawed taxis because his pooch was run over by...

    ”Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God”—Tom Jefferson Essential themes from the original American Revolution are resurfacing during Obama’s short tenure. As always, the People are bigger than any one man, and so it is quite fitting we return to our roots to fight tyranny by rising up against Obama’s imperial presidency, forcefully and legally removing him, just like rejecting Mad King George. Timeless revolutionary issues boil down to Natural Law arguments concerning rights to property, the purpose of government, sovereignty and tyranny. Let’s examine these themes and ponder how the Founders reacted to them. We no longer have a...

"Nothing makes a president look weaker than pointing the finger at past administrations," said Republican strategist Ron Bonjean.

As Olbermann said, “It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days.” And Matthews opined, “I don’t sense executive command.” Remember the Wendy’s commercial with the old woman shouting, “Where’s the beef?” Essentially, that’s what Olbermann,...

    The special relationship is over. We gave America years of unwavering support after September 11. And now we see how Barack Obama’s administration repays us. First, Obama declared that America was “neutral” over the sovereignty of the Falklands, ignoring the clear wishes of the islands’ population. And, second, his Assistant Secretary of State, Philip Crowley, snubbed Britain by failing to use their proper name and instead calling them the “Malvinas”. I don’t know where Obama learned about diplomacy, but his stinks. I’m normally pro-American, but Mr Obama’s seeming support for Argentinian aggressors, who have no legitimate claim over the Falklands,...

    Many great thinkers have written about power and fear, and more adroitly, about the power of fear. There's Michel Foucault, who asserts the power of surveillance (or, at least, the power of the threat of surveillance). Then there's Machiavelli's sobering advice to Lorenzo de' Medici, about using fear to maintain stability. Even Gandhi reflected on the power of fear, opining that the "power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment." No offense to the Mahatma, but he'd have made a terrible President of the United States

Like President Johnson in 1968, who had won a much bigger victory four years previously than Obama did in 2008, President Obama will be so politically defunct by 2012 that he won't even try to run for reelection. I am now ready to predict that President Obama will not even make it that far. I predict that he will resign in discredited disgrace before the fall...
  • Obama's (Axelrod's) Choreographed Media Blackout

    The "most open and transparent" president in American history is still playing hide-and-seek with the press, and even the liberal New York Times has begun to notice it, as indicated by this headline: "Obama Turns His Back On the Press." If the mainstream media were not so ideologically wedded to Obama's big-government agenda, they would be doing more than pointing out his secrecy and hypocrisy with the occasional headline. They'd be skewering him daily for his marked inaccessibility. Not having a genuine news conference since July would be remarkable for the least transparent administration, let alone one that made openness...

    This was no ordinary Jerusalem Day celebrated in Israel today. This date on the Jewish calendar notes the anniversary of the unification of the city in 1967, when Israeli troops routed the Jordanian occupiers of the eastern, northern, and southern parts of the town, and of the Old City. In June 1967, the barriers that had divided Jerusalem since the 1949 armistice were torn down, and the Jewish people were reunited with their holiest places, from which they had been barred during that period. But while today’s ceremonies, displays, and parties were the usual mix of historic remembrance and recognition...

    Barack Obama cheating scandal allegedThe Korea Herald/Asia News Network Mon, May 03, 2010 HAS President Barack Obama been having an affair with Vera Baker? That's the shocking allegation made by the National Enquirer in this week's edition, according to a Hollywood Gossip report. The publication claims Obama and Baker, a former campaign aide, holed up at Washington, D.C. hotel, and a "security video" could expose everything, it said. Baker, now 35, worked tirelessly to get Obama elected to the U.S. Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions, in 2004, the news report said. They grew close since. While Vera Baker insists...

    The blogosphere abhors a vacuum. So when the mainstream media (MSM) leave holes in a given narrative -- in this case, the biography of the president -- bloggers individually, incrementally, and indefatigably strive to fill in the blanks -- sometimes successfully, sometimes less so. In his comprehensive, 600-plus-page biography of Barack Obama titled The Bridge, New Yorker editor David Remnick lays down the baseline of what the mainstream media know about the president -- or at least what they want us to know.

    President Obama tries to quell dispute over his cuts to manned space exploration with promise of 'leap into the future' President Obama promised a “leap into the future” for Nasa yesterday in a speech designed to quell a growing dispute over his cuts to manned space exploration, and to persuade critics that America will eventually put astronauts on Mars. Despite cancelling Constellation, the $108 billion (more than £69 bn) programme that aimed to get astronauts to the Moon by 2020 and the Red Planet by 2030, he outlined a series of “stepping stone” destinations where Nasa will first seek a...

    This clown Barack "Ogaffa" has taken "dumb", beyond the occasional gaffe, to a whole new level. From Khruschev to Chavez and more. Also be sure to watch BO's Gaffe Mania II.
