    President Obama referred to himself 45 times over the course of the speech he delivered Tuesday at the memorial service for the five police officers killed in Dallas last week. Obama referred to himself twice before finishing his opening salutations and before mentioning the slain officers or their families. After noting the presence of President Bush, members of Congress and Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings, Obama appeared to go off-script. “Chief Brown, I’m so glad I met Michelle first because she loves Stevie Wonder,” Obama said, jokingly referencing Dallas Police Chief David Brown’s earlier speech in which Brown quoted lyrics from...

    In her recent column Trump the Disrupter, Maureen Dowd wrote, “…Trump can go badly astray, as he did with the president’s birth certificate.” Astray? Here’s what Trump said about Obama’s birth certificate when asked in a recent interview by Anderson Cooper on CNN: Cooper asked: “Do you accept that President Obama was born in the United States?” “I really don’t know,” Trump responded. “I don’t know why he wouldn’t release his records; but, honestly, I don’t want to get into it.” Before shifting to a different topic…Trump rebutted with a few facts on the subject. “Do you know that Hillary...

    Embattled Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump hit back hard on Sunday at critics who say he went too far with caustic comments about a U.S. television news anchor, insisting no apology was necessary and defending his relations with women. "I've had such an amazing relationship with women in business. They are amazing executives. They are killers. They are phenomenal," Trump said on ABC's "This Week." The billionaire and television personality, who leads the polls in the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, appeared on Sunday news shows to rebut the latest wave of outrage triggered by his off-the-cuff talk....
  • Female Trump Staffer Dismisses Critics, Says Attacks on Megyn Kelly 'Fair Game'

    The female co-chair of Donald Trump's Iowa campaign is firing back against criticism that the real estate tycoon's comments about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly were sexist and inappropriate. -snip- Tana Goertz, Trump's Iowa co-chair, said she did not interpret the comment in the same way critics have, and was not offended. "I've always been treated with dignity and respect," she said. "I am a woman. I experience that every month. And it never crossed my mind. So I think people are just looking at pinpointing him as sexist and all these other things," Goertz said. I mean, we fought...

    Presidential candidate Donald Trump sought to redirect incoming fire at rival Republican Jeb Bush, saying that Bush has a "huge" problem with women and he is by far the better candidate with that demographic. Trump excoriated Bush for saying "I'm not sure we need half a billion dollars for women's health issues" at a speech in Tennessee last week. Bush later said he misspoke, and he was only questioning the federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood. "This is worse than what Romney did when he blew 47 percent of the vote with his ridiculous statements," Trump said, referencing a...

    Isn’t Congressman Grayson bad enough? The charmer from Florida, who once called his Republican opponent “Taliban Dan” and once said that allowing Republicans in charge would be like letting al-Qaeda fly planes, has his eyes set on higher office. In an interview yesterday with The Hill, Alan Grayson said there was only one potential roadblock to a Senate run. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, you’re our only hope:

    I didn’t watch Obama’s performance at West Point on May 28; I freely confess it was all I could do to read his commencement address. So I do not know if America’s mac-daddy president thought he would showcase how cool he is by fist-bumping and chest-bumping the graduating cadets. But, with that said, he did showcase his unrelenting petulant penchant for choosing public forums to attempt to embarrass and belittle those he is incapable of coercing or bullying into submission.

    The Blaze ^ | 10-26-2012 | Jason Howerton
    A former aide to Vice President Joe Biden has written a tell-all book that describes the VP as an “egomaniacal autocrat” who was “determined to manage his staff through fear” – an October surprise that the Obama campaign probably didn’t see coming. Author Jeff Connaughton, a former Biden Senate staffer, says Biden originally inspired him to get into politics but the experience working under the former Delaware senator caused him to become disillusioned with the political system in Washington. The book is called “The Payoff” and it was actually quietly released last month. Connaughton writes, as Politico describes it, “in...

In a podcast with, Obama said he had some advanced scouting on the Knicks breakout star from one of his advisers. “And I knew about Jeremy before you did, or everybody else did, because Arne Duncan, my secretary of education, was captain of the Harvard team,” Obama said of Jeremy Lin’s alma mater.

    A few hours after she was bizarrely confronted by Barack Obama on the airport tarmac, Gov. Jan Brewer went on KFYI's Mike Broomhead Show to give us the details on what happened as the President faced off with the Arizona governor - generating national headlines and derailing his post-State of the Union message. Brewer was stunned as Obama dispensed with the pleasantries and immediately scolded Brewer for her portrayal of their frosty, July 2010 Oval Office meeting in her memoir, Scorpions for Breakfast. Brewer said Obama was "uh, a little tense". She said she tried to show respect but that...

    While whining about his incessant criticism from conservatives and Tea Partiers at a fundraiser in Manhattan on Friday night, Obama played the MLK card. Indeed, he compared his suffering to Martin Luther King Jr.'s suffering. From Politcker: Standing in Weinstein’s basement, Obama said his troubles are like the ones facing Cuomo. “When I ran in 2008, I think that a lot of folks believed we elect Obama and suddenly we’re going to fix politics in Washington,” Obama said. “And Andrew is familiar with this, because everybody figures, well, we’re going to fix politics in Albany.” “And then it turns out...

    Sen. John McCain on Tuesday became one of the highest-profile Senate Republicans to say that his party could take control of the upper chamber in the midterm elections. In an interview on the "Imus in the Morning" show, McCain (Ariz.) criticized President Obama on national security issues and said that if Republicans win the Senate, he would become chairman of the Armed Services Committee and could further influence the debate. "I thought the important thing is, particularly on national security issues, but other issues — I think I have a lot to contribute. If we, and I think we can,...

    State Rep. Carl Wimmer has been in such demand on the speaking circuit over the past month that he has begun charging up to $4,500 for engagements outside of the state. The Herriman Republican said he has had to start charging for speaking engagements, a move that appears to be a first for Utah lawmakers and one the House speaker questioned as possibly trying to “leverage” his elected position. Wimmer, the co-founder of the states-rights-oriented Patrick Henry Caucus, said he has received several invitations to discuss the group’s principles, but the cost of travel has become a burden. Wimmer said...
