  • Mika's Latest Benghazi Excuse: There Are Some Things Obama Admin Can't Talk About

    10/19/2012 8:47:35 AM PDT · by chessplayer · 16 replies
    So THAT'S why President Obama and his spox have seemed so shifty on the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans including the US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. There really is a perfectly good explanation for everything. It's just that--darn it!--state secrecy prevents the prez from telling us. Yeah, that's the ticket! Such was the sorry excuse that Mika Brzezinski suggested on today's Morning Jones. When Josh Green of Bloomberg recommended that President Obama get his story in order before Monday's debate, Mika mysteriously said: "there may be some parts of this which they can't talk about, which makes it...

    A new poll shows Republican Mitt Romney leading in Pennsylvania, a state that Republicans had all but written off just weeks ago but which is now listed as a toss up by the Real Clear Politics website. Susquehanna Polling and Research provided The Washington Examiner with a poll it conducted for state party officials that shows Romney with a 49 percent to 45 percent lead over President Obama. It's the first poll to show Romney leading among likely voters in the Keystone State. "The polling is very clear that the race is certainly up for grabs and Republicans have a...

    resident Obama, during the taping of The Daily Show, discussed the Benghazi terrorist attack that claimed the lives of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. “Here’s what I’ll say. When four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it,” Obama said per pool. “The government is a big operation and [at] any given time something screws up,” he also said, saying that he believes “you find out what’s broken and you fix it.” The president was responding to this question from Stewart. “Is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions?

    President Barack Obama, during an interview to be shown on Comedy Central, has responded to a question about his administration's confused communication after the Benghazi attack, by saying: 'If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.'

Stewart, a liberal whose young audience is full of potential voters prized by the Obama campaign, asked the president about his handling of the aftermath of the Benghazi attack.

    After years of struggling with weak sales and mounting losses, electric-car battery maker A123 Systems filed for bankruptcy protection and reached a deal to sell its automotive assets Tuesday. Auto parts maker Johnson Controls will pay $125 million for A123's auto business, which includes two Michigan factories and the lithium-ion battery technology used in cars like the Fisker Karma and upcoming Chevrolet Spark. A123's demise as an independent business reflects the problems of the electric-car industry. Americans have been slow to buy the vehicles because they're expensive, and many models have limited range and can run out of power on...

And the proceeds would go directly to the Third World. In this way, Barack Obama will, indeed, realize the dreams of his father. In our new book, "Here Come the Black Helicopters: UN Global Governance and the Loss of Freedom," Eileen and I describe how there is now pending in the U.N. all kinds of plans to tax Americans and redistribute their wealth – not to other Americans – but...

    Washington (CNN) -- Treating presidential polls as gospel is a little like placing political faith in the lifespan of a fruit fly. "People tend to subscribe a more durable nature to polling data," said Russ Baker, a political science professor at Rutgers University. "It's more ephemeral." That's because polls, as those who conduct them stress, are simply snapshots. For example, two national polls released Monday suggested Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney got a big bounce from last week's first presidential debate -- viewed across the political spectrum as a victory for him.

    By Arlette Saenz Sep 29 Biden Blames Bush Administration for Deficit Joe Biden placed the blame for the ballooning deficit on the Bush administration today, arguing that the previous administration saddled the country with the burden of trillions of dollars in debt. “Let’s get serious here! How did we get this debt? Ladies and gentlemen, they put two wars on a credit card. Not paying a penny, not paying a penny, even though I introduced legislation to pay for that war. They voted against it,” Biden said at the Wa-Ke Hatchee Park Recreation Center. “Two, they voted for a new...

    Barack Obama blew off Netanyahu this week. He (refused) to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister while he’s visiting the US. He said he was too busy but (took the afternoon off) on Thursday according to his schedule. He’s going to call Netanyahu between campaign stops today. Meanwhile… Obama’s ambassador to the UN Susan Rice also blew off Netanyahu’s speech. She went to lunch with Hillary and some other officials instead.
  • Leno: We wasted "four years waiting for Obama to do something about the economy." (see video)

    Jay Leno took some surprising shots at President Obama Thursday night. During the opening monologue of NBC's Tonight Show, the host said Americans wasted four years for the current White House resident to do something about the economy (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary): "I love how the politicians capitalize on this kind of thing," teased Leno. "Like the minute the replacement refs were fired, President Obama said, 'See, sometimes losing jobs can be a good thing. It's a good thing.'" When the laughter subsided, Leno continued, "A new survey out today shows how much time we waste every...

    Jay-Z recently revealed his conservative leanings. While he was promoting the NBA 2K13 game at the 40/40 Club in Manhattan last night, he offered his philosophy on politics and voiced his support for small government. While the Brooklyn rapper is a high profile endorser of President Obama, he’s no fan of Washington. “I don’t even like the word politics,” Jay-Z told MTV News. ”It implies something underhanded and I think we need less government.” Despite his support for the President, Jay-Z’s “less government” viewpoint is more in line with Obama’s opponents on the right, such as Republican candidate Mitt Romney,...
  • Romney beating Obama in poll on foreign affairs

    The foreign-policy results of the new Bloomberg National Poll haven't gotten much attention yet, but the survey contains some bad news for the Obama campaign. According to the poll, Mitt Romney has a 48-42 advantage over Barack Obama on the question of which candidate would be tougher on terrorism. Romney, in other words, has encroached on one of Obama's signature strengths. What makes this result so surprising is that the president has consistently trounced Romney when it comes to counterterrorism. A Fox News poll earlier this month found that 49 percent of respondents trusted Obama to do a better job...

    America’s Dumbest War, Ever 26 September 2012 Yesterday a concerned father forwarded to me a letter from his son in Afghanistan. I confirmed authenticity, and republish with permission: Dad, I am fed up. I cannot believe the lack of attention the recent changes in this war is receiving by the media or the country. I think I saw one thing on CNN about the following subject, but I had to dig extensively to find it. The purpose of this letter is to let you know of the garbage that our soldiers are going through right now. With this knowledge, I...
