  • Obama Trying to make Kayla Mueller's Death a Political Triumph for himself

    02/10/2015 9:19:55 AM PST · by SoFloFreeper · 24 replies
    So the news is that local officials in ARIZONA were doing more to get Kayla Mueller released than Team Obama. Now that the girl is gone, Obama is releasing statements of sympathy and pretending like he and Michelle give a damn. Just saw a report on local media that was an obvious attempt to boost Obama's image. My theory is Valerie saw how King Abdullah got a boost when he ACTUALLY DID something, and now wants her man child to be praised. Thoughts?

    The Obama administration will not implement a controversial piece of the healthcare reform law, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Friday. Sebelius said the department will not continue trying to implement the CLASS program, which was intended to provide insurance for long-term care. Republicans charged that the program’s financial structure was unsustainable, and Sebelius conceded as much Friday. “We have not identified a way to make CLASS work at this time,” she wrote on the Huffington Post's website. Sebelius said HHS will “suspend” implementation of the program. The department recently reassigned the people it had placed in the...

    Washington (AP) - President Barack Obama says his talks with Gulf fishermen and oil spill experts are not an academic exercise. They're "so I know whose ass to kick." One target for the presidential foot: Tony Hayward, the embattled chief executive of BP. Obama was asked by Matt Lauer of NBC's "Today" about Hayward's past comments that "I want my life back," that the Gulf was "a big ocean" and that "the environmental impact of this disaster is likely to be very, very modest." "He wouldn't be working for me after any of those statements," Obama said, according to excerpts...

    WASHINGTON — Amid the outpouring of inaugural joy over the racial progress represented by President Barack Obama, there was a single, humorous mention of work still to be done. After the first black president had been sworn in, Rev. Joseph Lowery' ended his benediction with a rhyme familiar to black churchgoers: "We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around..." There was laughter from the enormous crowd. The 87-year-old civil rights pioneer continued: "When yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get...

    At the funeral of Coretta Scott King, President Bush said her dignity was a “daily rebuke to the pettiness and cruelty of segregation.” The president, with class and compassion, spoke at New Birth Missionary Church in Atlanta, Georgia, to honor the wife of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unfortunately, there were others who spoke and turned what should be a sacred ceremony into an opportunity to engage in left-wing attacks. As noted in the story Political Posturing at King Funeral Draws Cheers, Jeers, liberal activists used the funeral of Coretta Scott King to demean President Bush and...

    Sri Lanka charges Oxfam £500,000 to allow in jeeps (Filed: 17/06/2005) Oxfam has had to pay £550,000 in customs duty to the Sri Lankan government for importing 25 four-wheel-drive vehicles to help victims of the tsunami, The Daily Telegraph has learned. The sum was levied by customs in Colombo which have refused to grant tax exemptions to non-governmental organisations working to repair damage caused by the giant Boxing Day wave. The Indian-made Mahindra vehicles, essential to negotiate damaged roads and rough tracks, remained stuck in port at Colombo for almost a month as officials completed the small mountain of paperwork...

    Oxfam pays $1m tsunami aid duty Oxfam says it abides by the laws of the countries it works in British charity Oxfam has had to pay the Sri Lankan government $1m in import duty for vehicles used in tsunami reconstruction work. Paperwork had kept the 25 four-wheel drive vehicles idle in the capital, Colombo, for a month. The Sri Lankan government told the BBC News website the aid had been duty-free until the end of April but was now needed to prevent "market distortions". Nearly 31,000 people died in Sri Lanka when the tsunami struck on 26 December. Half a...

A confrontation and shooting followed. One of the shooting victims radioed for help, Deputy Zeigle said, but when more hunters came to the scene, they also were shot. The alleged gunman...

    The Associated Press - COLUMBUS, Ga. A complaint has been filed accusing a Muscogee County deputy marshal of allowing neighbors to pick through the belongings of a woman who had been evicted. Virginia Upshaw, 45, says that after being evicted from her three-bedroom trailer, her belongings were hauled outside and placed near the road. Neighbors then took her possessions with the permission of the deputy marshal, she said. Marshal Kenneth Suddeth, who was not there when Upshaw was evicted, has turned the matter over to Commander Mark Lott, who said he is unable to comment until the investigation is complete....

Kerry as president, Sen. John Edwards told Ohio Democrats at their annual dinner. "All of us - it goes without saying - condemn it. It goes against the values we hold as Americans. Just think about the damage it's doing to our image around the world," Edwards said Saturday night, adding that the prisoner...
