  • Glenn Beck: Eligibility 'not winnable argument'...'I haven't looked into it at all'

    Radio and television talk show host Glenn Beck, who previously called the dispute over President Obama's eligibility for office the "dumbest thing I've ever heard," today told Denver host Peter Boyles on his KHOW show that it's not a "winnable argument." "I haven't looked into it at all," Beck told Boyles on this morning's show. "It doesn't matter to me because I don't think you can make the case." An audio of the exchange has been embedded: (see link) It was just weeks ago when Beck mocked "birthers," saying the issue actually would benefit President Obama. At the time, he...

    I know many doubt Beck's reliability, and I've only been watching in 2010. What I have seen with my own two eyes has been always rock solid and at times heroic. The history he is teaching strikes me as being exactly what this nation needs.

    The chattering class was entranced with candidate Barack Obama. So literate. So polished. So cool. We were assured that his lack of executive experience was irrelevant. After all, he ran a campaign. And then there were his years as a community organizer and Harvard Law Review editor, which showed… well… it showed something about his magnificent intellectual skills. But it turns out he lacks some key abilities — executive leadership, decisiveness, deal-making prowess, flexibility, and basic people skills — that are essential to a successful presidency. This is not simply the conclusion of conservatives. The entire country witnessed his agonizing...
  • Sarah Palin Endorses Ashley GrahAMNESTY; Gives $1K to Israel-Hater (Debbie Schlussel Alert)

    Over the last couple of weeks, a number of readers asked me what I thought about Sarah Palin supporting and actively campaigning for amnesty, global warming theory, and “I would close Gitmo” Republican, John McCain. That, I can understand, since he’s the moron who idiotically catapulted the empty skirtsuit to fame in the first place. That said, it’s not just McCain. The Sarah PAC also gave $1,000 to Team Graham, the campaign committee of amnesty supporter and “don’t torture terrorists” Republican U.S. Senator Ashley Graham, whom Rush Limbaugh appropriately calls, “Ashley Grahamnesty.” And her support is specifically for his primary....
  • Obama Uses Teleprompter To Address Sixth Graders, Media Mum

    Obama Uses Teleprompter To Address Sixth Graders, Media Mum By Noel Sheppard Created 01/25/2010 - 10:15 Last Tuesday, President Obama spoke to a group of sixth graders and surprisingly brought his trusty teleprompter along to make sure he didn't make any mistakes. As the Washington Post reported [1] Wednesday, "'We're going to raise the bar for all our students and take bigger steps towards closing the achievement gap that denies so many students, especially black and Latino students, a fair shot at their dreams,' Obama told a group of sixth-graders at Graham Road Elementary." Nowhere did the Post mention that...

    When Barack Obama was on the campaign trail, he promised Americans hope, change, and unity. Whatever else may be said about the man, you at least have to give him credit for delivering on all counts. After all, as the year has progressed, more and more Americans have united against his agenda. As for the change, well, just look at the unemployment rate, the economy, and the national debt. We've seen quite a bit of change in those areas under Obama's watch. Then of course, there's the prevalence of the word "hope" when people talk about our President. "Gosh, I...

    For the sixth time in 11 days, President Barack Obama was back before the cameras Thursday, talking about airline safety and anti-terrorism. He then left quickly for a second White House room to meet with Senate chairmen and press them to have a health care bill on his desk no later than next month. Two very different issues with one common thread: Obama engaging, shedding his famous detachment after watching the intensity of his support drop dramatically since last spring. To get health care, he must be both a broker and a buffer, absorbing the heat for difficult decisions at...

    Barack Obama The "bowing" controversies. Calling Kanye West a "jackass." Seeing a number of his first picks for prominent positions having to withdraw their names from consideration. That silly Beer Summit. Gate-crashers strolling in to a state dinner. Gifting the British PM with 25 DVDs that aren't compatible with European players. The "Special Olympics" bowling joke. Probably not the most dignified first year in presidential history.
  • Obama to Release Taped Statement About Christmas Terror Attack Later Today (Live Thread)

    Four days late, Barack Obama will interrupt his Hawaii vacation and finally speak to the nation today about the Christmas Day terror attack on America. However, he will be hiding from the American people and a media that might (might) ask uncomfortable questions by releasing a taped statement rather than making a live address.Reports are that he will tape his remarks at the nearby Marine base he has been using for his gym workouts, golfing and beach outings. Obama is staying at a $8.9 million estate that rents for an estimated $4000 per night. The White House Web site still...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 12/28/9 | Carla Marinucci, Chronicle Political Writer
    The 2009 political year began on a high note of "change" and "hope" and ended in a thud of stalemate, despair and public fury over the economy, health care reform and the war in Afghanistan. No wonder it may go down as the year of the angry voter. Americans will remember 2009 as much for the grassroots protests - at "Tea Party" rallies and town hall meetings crashed by conservatives to demonstrations by public-option-favoring anti-war progressives - as the Beltway grudge matches that characterized President Obama's first year in office. In California, residents endured months of bitter, partisan battles in...
  • Barack Obama's speech disappoints and fuels frustration at Copenhagen (ROFL!)

    The Guardian ^ | 12/18/2009 | Suzanne Goldenberg and Allegra Stratton
    Barack Obama stepped into the chaotic final hours of the Copenhagen summit today saying he was convinced the world could act "boldly and decisively" on climate change. But his speech offered no indication America was ready to embrace bold measures, after world leaders had been working desperately against the clock to try to paper over an agreement to prevent two years of wasted effort — and a 10-day meeting — from ending in total collapse. Obama, who had been skittish about coming to Copenhagen at all unless it could be cast as a foreign policy success, looked visibly frustrated as...

    Here is what President Obama said about Springsteen: Finally, we honor the quiet kid from Jersey ... who grew up to become the rock 'n' roll laureate of a generation. For in the life of our country only a handful of people have tapped the full power of music to tell the real American story -- with honesty; from the heart; and one of those people is Bruce Springsteen... It's no wonder that his tours are not so much concerts, but communions. There's a place for everybody -- the sense that no matter who you are or what you do,...

    Some folk have been asking why Canada Free Press (CFP) didn’t cover President Barack Obama’s Tuesday night speech at West Point Military Academy. CFP was tuned in on the speech through Mark Levin’s syndicated radio show. Our coverage of the speech is as follows: “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”. Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me. (That’s the 44 times Obama referred to “I” and Me in the...

    For Barack Obama, the magic is gone. He's here, but the glamour has vanished. He still talks, but few people appear to be listening. Sometime in spring, it began to be noticed (by Fred Barnes, among others) that he was losing the power to move people, or shape their opinions. When his agenda began meeting resistance, he gave a series of speeches and resistance grew stronger. The more he explained, the more people disliked what he said he was doing. The base remained loyal, but three other subgroups had become disenchanted. "The thrill is gone," said E.J. Dionne, who seemed...

    From journalist Elizabeth Drew, a veteran and often sympathetic chronicler of Democratic figures, a fiery denunciation of—and warning for—the White House. In a piece in Politico on the firing of White House counsel Greg Craig, Ms. Drew reports that while the president was in Asia last week, "a critical mass of influential people who once held big hopes for his presidency began to wonder whether they had misjudged the man." They once held "an unromantically high opinion of Obama," and were key to his rise, but now they are concluding that the president isn't "the person of integrity or even...
