  • Why Does McDonald’s Want to Rebrand as a ‘Progressive Burger Company’?

    National Review ^ | 6/17/2015 | George Will
    In January, McDonald’s, leaning against the winds of fashion, said kale would never replace lettuce on its burgers. In May, however, it said it will test kale in a breakfast meal (breakfast is about 25 percent of McDonald’s sales). Kale might or might not cause construction workers to turn at 6 a.m. into McDonald’s drive-through lines, where approximately two-thirds of McDonald’s customers place their orders. McDonald’s also says its milk will soon be without artificial growth hormones, and chicken (McDonald’s sells more of it than of beef) will be free of human antibiotics. All these might be good business decisions...

    As she prepares to answer questions about the Benghazi attacks of 2012, Hillary Clinton has hired former Obama aide Tommy Vietor to help with the roll out of her new book. Earlier this month, Vietor, a former Obama administration national security spokesman, appeared on Fox News to defend the administration’s response to the attacks and famously said to anchor Bret Baier: “Dude, this was like two years ago.” Here is the transcript from that exchange: BAIER: Did you also change ‘attacks’ to ‘demonstrations’ in the talking points? VIETOR: Maybe. I don’t really remember. BAIER: You don’t remember? VIETOR: Dude, this...

    Former Obama White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs appeared on the “Meet the Press” roundtable Sunday and laid bare truths about Washington, and his former boss’s spokesman. As the show’s featured guest, White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer painted a ludicrously optimistic portrait of the 2014 midterm elections for Democrats, stating emphatically, “I believe we will keep the Senate.” Later in the show, Gibbs admitted the Democrats could “absolutely” lose the Senate. He added: “If [Obama] doesn’t get more involved in raising money and making this a choice, as Dan Pfeiffer said, you lose the Senate. And, if you lose the...

    Gibbs frets about Dem 2014 chances Email Print By BURGESS EVERETT | 3/16/14 11:22 AM EDT The Senate is “definitely” in danger of flipping to Republican control, former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Sunday. Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gibbs said “there’s no doubt that the rollout for healthcare is still providing a huge hangover” for Democrats. But that’s not the biggest problem that Democrats face as an emboldened GOP seeks to seize six Senate seats and retake the majority for the first time in eight years. Democrats are worried, he said, that the electorate could be...

    Gibbs: 'This Is the Worst Year of the Presidency' Daniel Halper December 22, 2013 9:33 AM Robert Gibbs, President Obama's former press secretary, declared 2013 the worst year (so far!) of the Obama presidency: "This is the test, Robert, of big progressive government solving a big societal problem," said NBC host David Gregory. "That's what he took on. That is the big project of his presidency." "No doubt about it," Gibbs responded on Meet the Press. "I would say this is the worst year of the presidency. It does beat out 2011. But -- well, and especially given sort of...

    President Obama's former press secretary, Robert Gibbs, says it was "certainly" wrong for the president to continuously promise that people would be able to keep their health care plans under Obamacare ..."Well, look, I don't recall significant discussions around some of the verbage on this, to be a hundred percent honest with you," said Gibbs this morning. "But do you agree it was a wrong move?" "Oh, well, certainly," said Gibbs. "I mean, I don't think anybody dealing with this today finds what was said. Now, I do think some explanation in terms of the fact that policies that were...

    Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs on Monday pushed back at House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s (R-Calif.) claims that top officials from the IRS’s Washington, D.C. office directed the targeting of conservative groups, calling the allegations unsubstantiated and “shameful.” “Republicans are on the verge of overplaying their hand publicly and the American people will quickly lose interest on their side in this,” Gibbs said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “They want to see the IRS cleaned up, but they understand that Darrell Issa is doing nothing more than politicizing this event. To throw around the words ‘liar’ and ‘perjury’...

    Team Obama's Justification For Killing A 16-Year-Old American In A Drone Strike Is StunningMichael Kelley | Oct. 24, 2012, 2:04 PM Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, a senior adviser to President Obama's reelection campaign, recently became the first person on Team Obama to address the killing of 16-year-old American citizen Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, Conor Friedersdorf of the The Atlantic reports. Abdulrahman was the son of New Mexico-born cleric and al-Qaeda propagandist Anwar al-Alwaki. Both were killed in separate drone strikes last year.

    "Absolutely not," Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs replied to "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace when asked whether the administration was politically motivated when it initially mischaracterized the recent attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya. "No one either intentionally or unintentionally misled anyone involved in this," Mr. Gibbs said. "We learned more information every single day about what happened. No one wants to get to the bottom of this more than we do." Some House Republicans have accused the president of intentionally misleading the public about the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the U.S....

    On the Monday broadcast of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs used a familiar metaphor about a "car in the ditch" that President Obama was known for using throughout 2010. “When Barack Obama got the keys to the bus it was trapped in the ditch with three flat tires. We've changed the tires, we've pulled the bus out of the ditch, and we’re starting up the road to strengthening the middle class," Gibbs said this morning. "There's a different theory. Mitt Romney wants to take that bus -- probably a bus made in Switzerland or Bermuda -- and...

    Obamaphile hack Robert Gibbs says that “nobody knows” whether Mitt Romney is in violation of any tax laws. Actually, that’s not even remotely true; there is no evidence whatsoever that Romney has broken any laws, so in fact, we can say that we do know that Romney is in compliance. But if pretending to be ignorant regarding whether an accusation is valid suffices to allow accusations to be brought forward, then we can have all sorts of fun with Robert Gibbs. After all, nobody knows whether Robert Gibbs embezzles money from orphanages. ...Glenn Reynolds: PEJMAN YOUSEFZADEH doesn’t know if Robert...

    Who has really gone "well over the line," Rick Santorum or Barack Obama? Former White House Press Secretary and current campaign adviser Robert Gibbs is alleging that GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum went "well over the line" when he questioned Obama's Christian values. Gibbs told ABC's "This Week" that it's time to get rid of this mindset in our politics that, if we disagree, we have to question character and faith." See here. If Robert Gibbs really believes that Rick Santorum went "well over the line" by merely questioning Obama's so-called "Christian virtues," he must then concede that Barack Obama...
