  • Chris Christie Passive-Aggressively Pressures President Obama Into Congratulating Him

    Chris Christie won reelection in a blue state by a million points last night, another triumph on his road to the 2016 presidential race. And yet, amid the sweet euphoria of victory, something was eating away at Christie. There was an emptiness, a void. That's right: President Obama didn't call to congratulate Christie last night — even after Christie called Obama last November to congratulate him on his win over Mitt Romney. It just makes Christie wonder if he's the only one putting any effort into this relationship. Though hurt and upset, this afternoon Christie was still strongly suggesting that...
  • Matt Damon: Obama 'broke up with me'

    Matt Damon: Obama 'broke up with me' By Cameron Joseph - 08/09/13 09:50 AM ET Actor and former Obama fan Matt Damon isn't happy with the president. "He broke up with me," Damon tells BET. "There are a lot of things that I really question, the legality of the drone strikes, and these NSA revelations. Jimmy Carter came out and said 'we don't live in a democracy,' that's a little intense when an ex-president says that, so he's got some explaining to do, particularly for a constitutional law professor." Damon was a big supporter of Obama during his 2008 campaign,...
  • Daniel Craig insists there will NEVER be a gay James Bond...

    11/09/2012 10:18:24 AM PST · by Perdogg · 35 replies
    Daniel Craig has come forward to insist there will never be a gay James Bond - because 007 is not gay. The actor, who takes on the role of the suave British agent in the latest installment Skyfall, was forced to comment after the chemistry between him and Javier Bardem's character Raoul Silva sparked speculation about Bond's sexuality. The scene in question sees a flirtatious Raoul caress Bond's legs and chest as the spy sits tied up in a chair, with 007 ending the scene by asking his foe: 'What makes you think this is my first time?'

    Chris Matthews Mocks Rush Limbaugh as the 'Guy From Deliverance' By Scott Whitlock Created 11/01/2012 - 6:17pm MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Thursday lashed out at Rush Limbaugh and his criticism of Chris Christie, deriding the conservative radio host as "the guy from Deliverance." Matthews played a clip of Limbaugh joking, "New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has decided to play the role of a Greek column today for President Obama." Matthews fumed, "He reminds me more of the guy from Deliverance– 'Squeal like a pig,'" a reference to the sodomy scene in the 1972 film. Matthews followed up, "...It just seems...

    First lady says there’s ‘bromance’ between Obama, Bill Clinton By Alicia M. Cohn - 09/21/12 04:43 PM ET Michelle Obama this week acknowledged that the extended hug between President Obama and former President Clinton at the Democratic National Convention, in a surprise appearance by the president following Clinton’s speech, was “the public display of the bromance” that has been going on for some time. Obama and the first lady have invoked Clinton’s name many times on the campaign trail since his well-received speech to the Democratic convention earlier this month. Both Obama and his GOP opponent, Mitt Romney, have featured...

    The owner of a Florida pizza shop says people are boycotting his business because he bear-hugged President Barack Obama on Sunday. “People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant,” Scott Van Duzer, 46, told POLITICO. “There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.” The owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, Fla., said that both Democrats and Republicans are welcome in his store. But he also said he thinks Mitt Romney’s running mate Rep. Paul Ryan — whose sculpted abs are thanks to intense P90X...

    Chris Matthews: 'If I Were Obama I'd Marry' Bill Clinton By Noel Sheppard Created 08/23/2012 - 6:26pm MSNBC's Chris Matthews sure doesn't have a problem expressing his affection for men on national television. After showing a new campaign ad former President Bill Clinton just completed for the current White House resident, the Hardball host actually said, "If I were Barack Obama, I'd marry that guy" (video follows with commentary): Makes you wonder how Mrs. Matthews feels about her husband talking this way on national television. One moment he's telling viewers how listening to Obama gives him a thrill up his...

    Gore lauds Romney on climate position By Jordan Fabian - 06/15/11 01:17 PM ET Former Vice President Al Gore on Wednesday praised GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney for his acknowledgement of global climate change. Gore, who has championed climate issues since losing the 2000 presidential race, posted a note on his blog that praised Romney for being consistent on his position that humans have contributed to rising global temperatures. "Good for Mitt Romney — though we've long passed the point where weak lip-service is enough on the Climate Crisis," Gore wrote. "While other Republicans are running from the truth, he...

    Egypt: As the U.S. pushes for the inclusion of the Muslim Brotherhood in a new Egyptian government, a frightening revelation emerges: The fundamentalist group would be part of a regime that has an active WMD program. The U.S. wants to include the Muslim Brotherhood in talks on a future government, with the possibility it might even be part of a coalition. All very innocent sounding, except inclusion of hard-liners in such coalitions can lead to an eventual takeover of the government. Expect no different in Egypt. As retired Army Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis wrote in Human Events this week, "An...

    NEW YORK (AP) — NBA great Charles Barkley says Tiger Woods changed his cell phone number the day after his car accident and is not talking to some of his famous friends. On a show that airs on Sunday on news network HLN, Barkley and filmmaker Spike Lee worry that Woods isn't taking advantage of the invaluable advice that can only be offered by friends who are used to the spotlight. You should reach out to your celebrity friends when things go bad," Barkley told The Associated Press in a phone interview on Tuesday. "They're the only people who understand...

    This is a love story that has inspired a paean. In fact, to call it mere "love" does not do justice to it. It is a special political love so intense that The New Republic has called it a "bromance" in a story titled, "The Courtship: The story behind the Obama-Brooks bromance" by Gabriel Sherman. Watch how the hot sparks instantly fly at their first meeting: In the spring of 2005, New York Times columnist David Brooks arrived at then-Senator Barack Obama’s office for a chat. Brooks, a conservative writer who joined the Times in 2003 from The Weekly Standard,...
