    Hillary Clinton isn’t prepping for the second presidential debate — she’s relaxing, Donald Trump claimed Thursday. “That’s not debate prep, she is resting,” he said in New Hampshire at a town hall-style forum — the same format of his looming face-off with Clinton. “She wants to build up her energy for Sunday night, and you know what, that’s fine, but the narrative is so foolish. I’m here for one reason: I love the people of New Hampshire. I said I was going to be here and I’m here, very simple,” he continued. Clinton’s last public event was Tuesday, though she’s...

    For the upcoming presidential debate, the powers that be have chosen to go with a town hall-style set-up and two moderators. Those two mods are CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz and according to Page Six, they are beefing. Specifically, each one of them reportedly wants to be the one who hits Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump with the hard questions. Page Six reported that sources close to the two networks are describing the D.C. meetings between both networks’ producers, talent, and executives as “acrimonious at best.” Here’s the full quote: Getting the two networks together has been a...

  • Fact Check: 'Act of Terror' Not Same as 'Terrorism'

    10/17/2012 7:49:58 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 19 replies ^ | Oct 1 2012 | Ed Sexton
    Last night President Obama got wee-weed-up claiming it was "offensive" to suggest that he or anyone on his team would mislead the public on the Benghazi attack. He then went on to immediately mislead the public about his own record on Benghazi. In case you missed it, you can watch the exchange here. Romney asks if the President is saying he called Benghazi an "act of terror" on 9/12 and Obama says "Please proceed, governor." Romney then says it was 14 days before Obama called it an "act of terror" and Obama interjects "get the transcript." At this point Candy...
  • Slow economic growth expected to slow demand for oil thru 2013 ( Obama said Recession raises price )

    10/17/2012 5:27:20 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 4 replies ^ | Oct 10 2012 |
    Slow economic growth will continue to dampen worldwide demand for oil by 800,000 to 900,000 barrels per day through 2012 and 2013, according to an International Energy Agency report. China, the Middle East and former Soviet Union countries are expected to lower their demand by 300,000 barrels per day, the report said. In July, global oil supply grew by an estimated 300,000 to 900,000 barrels per day, with emerging market countries generating more than half of the increase. However, Iran, Angola and Libya have all had a decline in crude oil supply, leading to an overall drop in oil supply...

    “Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice told me this morning on “This Week.”

    After the debate, debate moderator Candy Crowley said Republican nominee Mitt Romney was “right in the main” but “picked the wrong word” on the Obama administration’s immediate response to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead. Crowley interrupted Romney during the debate, insisting that President Obama had in fact called the attack an “act of terror.” ROMNEY: I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror. OBAMA: Get the transcript. CROWLEY: It — it — it...

    During his interview on "The View" which is scheduled to air today, President Obama refused to describe the attack on the U.S. consolate in Benghazi that left four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens dfead, as a "terrorist attack." During an appearance on the daytime TV show "The View," Obama was asked if the attack was an act of terrorism. Administration officials began labeling it that way last week, but Obama didn't use precisely that language. "There's no doubt that the kind of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasn't just a mob action. What's clear is...

    CNN anchor and debate moderator Candy Crowley joined CNN’s panel after the debate to discuss a moment where she corrected Mitt Romney after he claimed that President Barack Obama had refused to characterize the attack in Libya an act of terror for 14 days. Crowley said that Romney’s was “right” in that the Obama administration spent weeks refusing to say that the attack was terrorism, but she thought at the time that “he picked the wrong word.” “I heard the president speak at the time. I, sort of, reread a lot of stuff about Libya because I knew we’d probably...

The Duelfer report confirmed that decision today, because what Saddam Hussein was doing was trying to get rid of sanctions so he could reconstitute a weapons program. And the biggest threat facing America is terrorists with weapons of mass destruction. We knew he hated us. We knew he'd been -- invaded other countries. We knew he tortured his own people.   KERRY:I...

    Beverly Hills - Canyon News staff went out into the streets of Beverly Hills, Brentwood, and Westwood to see what readers had to say of tonight’s debate between John Kerry and George Bush in Missouri. Three staff members talked to 30 people who (1) saw or knew of the debates… (2) but did not watch the after-debate analysis by the media and (3) wanted to talk to us. Out of 30 people, 21 people said Bush won tonight’s debate. 6 people said Kerry won. 3 people thought it was a tie. “Who won tonight’s debate, will it change your vote,...

    Before last night's debate, a friend remarked that America had seen all four national candidates in action and that three had given good, solid performances. The fourth was President Bush. That's changed. Now all four have proven their mettle. If you're scoring at home, the debate game is now tied at one victory each for President Bush and John Kerry. It was a different Bush who showed up in St. Louis last night. Brimming with confidence and energy and enough humor to soften his edginess, he was in command of his thoughts and even his face. And, for him, he...
  • How did Round Two play in Okoboji? Undecided voters get more questions than answers

    I sat down with a group of five uncommitted Iowa voters to watch the second presidential debate with them and get their reactions. The views of people in Okoboji and the rest of Iowa matter this year more than ever. That’s because Iowa is one of the most hotly contested states this year, a state that Al Gore carried by only 4,144 votes. Although Dickinson County, where Okoboji sits, nestled up in northwest Iowa near the Minnesota border, is Republican turf (Bush carried it with 52 percent four years ago), if Kerry can glean a few dozen extra votes from...

    Fox News Channel debate analyst Fred Barnes said Bush's performance against John Kerry Friday night was sure to be a morale booster for Republicans. "Into about the third half hour of this debate, if you cupped your ear you could hear Republicans all over the country and Bush supporters and the White House staff, all giving a great sigh of relief," Barnes told panel anchor Brit Hume. "Because the president did so much better than he did in the first debate." While Kerry wasn't quite as good as he had been during last week's debate, said Barnes, "He was still...

    While Sen. John Kerry was cutting a bella figura, President Bush was looking like a dog being washed. That was the gleeful instant analysis of last week's presidential debate by the chattering classes. In fact, the establishment media needed less than a week to spin vague perceptions about style and body language into a new urban legend starring a self-assured and smooth-talking challenger running rings around a hapless and tongue-tied incumbent. Never mind that Kerry's innumerable positions on Iraq and on the broader war against Islamist terror — the most pressing challenge of our time — were revealed as...
