    Americans “aren’t feeling real good” about Republicans in Congress who have blocked his $447 billion jobs bill, President Obama said late Sunday night. “The American people, at this point, are wondering about congressional leadership in failing to pass the jobs bill — the components of which the majority of Americans, including many Republicans — think are a good idea,” Mr. Obama said at a news conference in Hawaii at the conclusion of a Pacific summit. He said Republican lawmakers are likely to pay a price at the polls next November for standing in the way of his proposals, which include...

    HONOLULU -- People curious about where President Barack Obama was born can visit the hospital here where his mother gave birth to him, he joked Saturday. "This is my birthplace. I know that was contested for a while," Obama said at the start of a session at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, where he was being interviewed by Boeing CEO James McNerney. "I can actually show you the hospital if you want," Obama said. "If you want to go down there." In all his time living in Hawaii -- where he lived with his grandparents through his teen years --...

    Obama reads riot act to European leaders in late night phone calls and orders them to take more dramatic action on debt crisisBy Daily Mail Reporter Last updated at 12:55 PM on 11th November 2011 Barack Obama has read the riot act to the leaders of several European countries - saying more dramatic action is needed to avert a eurozone meltdown. The U.S. President made telephone calls to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Italian President Giorgio Napolitano late last night. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said the president had demanded faster action from Europe. It came as...

    BOSTON–Chanting “hands off” and “no cuts,” hundreds of seniors rallied here to warn Congress’s deficit-cutting supercommittee to stay away from Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. “When you get older, you need help, not cuts,” said Steve Ciardi, a former pipe fitter who has multiple sclerosis and was in a wheelchair being pushed by his wife, Patty. “That is what the country is about – helping people,” she said. AARP Massachusetts, the SEIU and AFL-CIO labor unions, and several senior activist groups are organizing the event, which kicked off this morning with a rally at the historic Wang Theatre in downtown...
  • Report: Sarkozy calls Netanyahu 'liar' (Obama AGREES, Caught On Open Mic!)

    The conversation then drifted to Netanyahu, at which time Sarkozy declared: "I cannot stand him. He is a liar." According to the report, Obama replied: "You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!" The remark was naturally meant to be said in confidence, but the two leaders' microphones were accidently left on, making the would-be private comment embarrassingly public. The communication faux pas went unnoticed for several minutes, during which the conversation between the two heads of state – which quickly reverted to other matters – was all but open to members the press,...

    In head-to-head matchups, Romney leads Obama among registered voters in swing states by a single percentage point The swing states just aren't swinging President Obama's way. Republican presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Herman Cain are either winning or are neck to neck with Obama in the states deemed the most critical to winning the 2012 presidential election, a USA Today/Gallup poll released Friday found. In head-to-head matchups, Romney leads Obama among registered voters in swing states by a single percentage point, 47% to 46%. But the commander in chief is ahead against Perry in those states by a...

    Republican lawmakers and conservative activists are expressing outrage after the Obama administration announced its objection to adding President Franklin Roosevelt’s D-Day prayer to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. The objection was noted during a congressional hearing on Rep. Bill Johnson’s (R-OH) bill – the “World War II Memorial Prayer Act of 2011.” "It is unconscionable that the Obama administration would stand in the way of honoring our nation’s distinguished World War II veterans,” Johnson said. “President Roosevelt’s prayer gave solace, comfort and strength to our nation and our brave warriors as we fought against tyranny and oppression.”...

    MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The State Department of Education is advising school superintendents to hold off on providing enrollment data to the U.S. Department of Justice. The DOJ had requested Alabama school superintendents provide a list of all students who had withdrawn from schools since the beginning of the school year. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez sent a letter to Alabama school systems wanting to know how many Hispanic students are enrolled in schools and how many have withdrawn since the beginning of the school year. Educators reported the new law caused many Hispanic students to stay home in the...

    CHICAGO—The Obama re-election campaign has quietly opened a counteroffensive against Republican-backed changes to election laws that Democrats say will suppress votes for their candidates and limit their get-out-the-vote drives. The effort, led by former White House counsel Robert Bauer, prompted the suspension of an Ohio law limiting early voting. Campaign officials produced educational materials to counter a Wisconsin law that requires voters to produce photo I.D.s—but disallows those used by Wisconsin colleges. By this spring, the Obama re-election campaign will mount what Mr. Bauer called an unprecedented "voter protection" effort, fielding thousands of volunteers in battleground states to help navigate...

    From Hurricane Irene , which soaked the entire East Coast in August, to the Midwest tornadoes , which wrought havoc from Wisconsin to Texas, 2011 has seen more billion-dollar natural disasters than any year on record, according to the National Climatic Data Center. And as America’s hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and wildfires set records this year, so too has President Obama in his response to them. During the first 10 months of this year President Obama declared 89 major disasters, more than the record 81 declarations that he made in all of 2010. And Obama has declared more disasters — 229...

    Obama: Gaddafi Death Is Warning To Dictators 12:13am UK, Wednesday October 26, 2011 US President Barack Obama has described Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's death as a strong message to dictators around the world. Speaking on NBC's 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' Mr Obama said the Libyan leader had missed his chance to bring democracy to his country. "This is somebody who, for 40 years, has terrorised his country and supported terrorism," he said. "He had an opportunity during the Arab Spring to finally let loose of his grip on power and to peacefully transition into democracy. "We gave him ample...

    I swear at the TV. Not when anyone’s around, and not to be obnoxious, but as a vocal outlet for the private conversation in my head. I’m nuts that way. In my head, I’m doing running commentary on life all the time. Usually, it’s no more substantive than the observation that, no ma’am, you shouldn’t be wearing stretch pants, or that, yes sir, you are the biggest moron God ever made. That’s going on in my head all the time. And sometimes it comes out. Like when I’m watching a sitcom and I will let loose a hyena laugh. Or,...

    An internal U.S. Department of Homeland Security document indicates that a controversial program designed to predict whether a person will commit a crime is already being tested on some members of the public voluntarily, CNET has learned. If this sounds a bit like the Tom Cruise movie called "Minority Report," or the CBS drama "Person of Interest," it is. But where "Minority Report" author Philip K. Dick enlisted psychics to predict crimes, DHS is betting on algorithms: it's building a "prototype screening facility" that it hopes will use factors such as ethnicity, gender, breathing, and heart rate to "detect cues...
  • Obama to GOP: Act on jobs or get run out of town

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A combative President Barack Obama challenged a divided Congress on Thursday to unite behind his jobs bill or get ready to be run "out of town" by angry voters. Hoping to use public frustration and economic worry as leverage, he called his proposal an insurance plan against a painful return to recession. In a news conference long on restatements of his ideas, Obama laid bare the dynamic that now is Washington: The era of compromise is over.

    Luminant, the Dallas-based electricity generator that has protested federal regulators' timetable to curtail emissions from its coal-fired plants, said Monday it will idle two of those facilities and stop mining Texas lignite at some locations by the end of the year, costing about 500 jobs. Luminant said it took the actions to prepare to meet the Environmental Protection Agency's Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, which requires electricity generators in 27 states to cut emissions by Jan. 1, a deadline CEO David Campbell called "unrealistic." The company said it will spend about $280 million through 2012 on emissions control equipment, but won't...
  • Is the Chevy Volt a sales flop? (just 723 Sold In Sept.)

    General Motors has repeatedly claimed a sales target for 2011 of 10,000 units for the plug-in hybrid Chevy Volt sedan. But, nine months into the year, they've only shipped 3,895 off the lot. In fact, in September sales numbers, released an hour ago, GM sold only 723 Volts. Will GM fail to meet its own sales predictions? (SNIP) To give you an idea of how few vehicles that is, here are just a few of the GM vehicles that sold better than the Chevy Volt this month: Cadillac Escalade - 1,527 Chevrolet Colorado Pickup - 2,171 Chevrolet Avalanche - 1,861...

    Late last week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) took what is being called "the final step" towards implementing their illegal Net Neutrality regulations. You may recall, that back on December 21, the FCC bypassed government regulations and seized control of the Internet -- delivering what many believe is a knockout blow to one of the last, great free-market frontiers our nation and the world has ever seen. According to the organization Less Government, regardless of a multiple lawsuits, a move by the House of Representatives and a D.C. Circuit Court unanimously ruling that the FCC had no authority to take...

The campaign is holding these dinners for supporters like you whenever we can. They’re a chance for some of the people who are building this campaign to connect with the President, and a way for the President to meet you, too. In a few weeks, I’ll make four more calls, and you could be one of them. Donate $5 or more today and...

    NEW ORLEANS -- There are several political signs attracting all kinds of attention in one Uptown neighborhood. On Wednesday, crowds gathered at the corner of Calhoun and Coralie streets, looking at several signs depicting President Barack Obama as either a dunce, a puppet or a crying baby in a diaper. "It disrespects the nation -- and President Barack Obama represents our nation," said Skip Alexander, as he looked at one of the signs. "He represents everybody, not some people." Dozens of protesters came by the house in the 1500 block of Calhoun throughout the day, demanding the sign come down....
