    (MANCHESTER, N.H.) -- President Obama is personally calling on Mitt Romney to release more of his tax returns. In an interview Monday night with Manchester, N.H., ABC affiliate WMUR, Obama stressed the need for transparency when asked whether Romney’s offshore finances, including a Swiss bank account, disqualified him for office or made him unpatriotic. “What’s important is if you are running for president is that the American people know who you are and what you’ve done and that you’re an open book. And that’s been true of every presidential candidate dating all the way back to Mitt Romney’s father,” Obama...

    ...The line of attack, dismissed by the Romney campaign as an "unfounded character assault," follows new reports that raise questions about Romney's personal wealth, which could exceed $250 million. President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is expected to push the strategy throughout the coming week, underscoring their desire to portray Romney as disconnected from the middle-class voters he needs to win the presidency...

    The leaks have started. The Daily Caller's Matthew Boyle writes that Javiar Manjarres of the Shark Tank political blog reported Sunday that "Wasserman  Schultz will not be back as DNC Chairwoman after the November elections." On top of that, her own insiders are leaking the same information to several bloggers and reporters. Of course you know the drill-- they say that " The Congresswoman seeks" to concentrate on saving America as a Congresswoman and blah, blah and more blah.I would have to say that, all of the above is "Nothing is further from the truth"! I would have to contend...
  • Al Gore’s supporters at wikipedia repeatedly erase the info regarding his environmental hypocrisy

    Al Gore. Just his name warms our hearts with love and admiration. He loves the environment. He cares about the environment. He’s doing everything he can to protect the environment. He has won so many major awards for his concern about the planet. Wikipedia’s Al Gore article states: Gore has received a number of awards including the Nobel Peace Prize (joint award with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) (2007), a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album (2009) for his book An Inconvenient Truth, a Primetime Emmy Award for Current TV (2007), and a Webby Award (2005). Gore was...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Now here comes the cover-up. I want to take you back to March 19th, 2007. You might remember that Alberto Gonzales, a member of the Bush administration as attorney general who fired the eight US attorneys. The Democrats were after Albert Gonzales and other Hispanics that the Bush administration sought to elevate, because Hispanics do not get elevated in a Republican Party. It just doesn't happen. Democrats say they can't allow that to be seen. So Alberto Gonzales became attorney general. He was a good friend of Bush's, really had a lot of respect for him. Miguel...

    Ron Paul stopped by Morning Joe on Wednesday, where he discussed a range of issues, from whether he believes Mitt Romney has “core convictions” (Short answer: Yes, although Paul would ultimately like to change the GOP’s core convictions), to the delegates he’s obtained, to entitlement programs. At one point in the segment, panelist Mike Barnicle asked Paul whether he was “headed in the direction of eliminating programs like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.” Barnicle followed up by asking Paul whether he feels any obligation to talk to the younger generations or instrust them about “the fact that there has always...

    LOS CABOS, Mexico – President Barack Obama warned Mitt Romney and his advisers to not attack him on foreign policy, telling the press here that “we have one president at a time.” Asked about a Romney adviser’s op-ed in a German newspaper last month critical of Obama’s economic plan, Obama argued that there’s a history of not letting domestic politics intercede in international conversations. “I would point out that we have one president at a time and one administration at a time, and I think traditionally the notion has been that America’s political differences end at the water’s edge,” Obama...

    Recently, our dog eating and homosexual agenda pushing president, Barack Hussein Obama, decided to make protecting the jobs of teachers, firemen, and cops his number one goal. Now I know, just as well as you do, that the Constitution says nothing about the federal government hiring teachers, firemen, and cops, but what the heck, let's play Barry's little game, shall we ? (In other words, we're going to do the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals Shuffle and pretend that the Constitution doesn't exist.) Ready ? (Oh, and all of you RINO hangers-on in the Romney campaign?

    U2 guitarist may get a second chance at Malibu mansions Lobbyists who worked on the Edge's project are urging legislators to approve a measure that could clear the way for his development, which the Coastal Commission rejected. SACRAMENTO — The California Coastal Commission rejected a controversial proposal last year by U2 guitarist the Edge to build five mansions on a scenic bluff above Malibu, saying that it would scar a rugged ridgeline and harm sensitive habitat. Now, some of the same powerful lobbyists and lawyers behind the musician's quashed development are working the halls of the Capitol to push a...

    If a white man with no business experience of any kind, on any level, were elected president and his economic plan increased government spending, increased government intrusion into private business, and increased taxes on the so-called rich–what would criticism of him be because he is white? If this same white president employed failed Keynesian economic strategies which resulted in his increasing our total national debt more than the first 41 presidents combined, in less than three years of his first term in office–would criticism of him be because he is white? If this hypothetical white president were driving us off...

    The Obama administration has done its best to oppose states from instituting new, stricter voter ID laws, complaining that many minority voters lack photo identification. But those same folks it wants voting in November are apparently not welcome anywhere near the First Lady's book signings. Something tells me that the same media outlets comparing voter ID laws to the Jim Crow Laws, however, won't see any hint of hypocrisy here, if they even report the story at all. On Friday, June 8th, those wishing to attend the event must purchase a copy of the First Lady's book at the location...

    Funny really is money. Bill Maher, the host of HBO's "Real Time," announced on Sunday at Citi Field that he had purchased a minority stake in the Mets earlier this year — and the sometimes controversial, always funny comedian wasn't kidding. Maher, a lifelong Mets fan, says he thinks he made a "great investment" by purchasing a share in the team. "I think people sometimes forget there's only one National League franchise in New York City, and they're not making anymore," he said. "I just thought it would be a great place, especially after I've seen some of the ways...
  • Friends of Obama Allowed to Opt Out

    Emigrant Bank was recently identified to receive a waiver that would allow the bank to opt out of rigorous Dodd-Frank requirements. These of course are the same new rules and regulations that Barack deems essential to the nation. Yet when the bank’s owner, Howard Milstein, who is a close friend and was a bundler for President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, protested that the new rules would seriously crimp operations of his bank, the Obama Administration worked with members of congress to grant him a waiver from the new rules. Other financial institutions and banks have consistently and vehemently argued that...

    If "diversity" is good, why do liberals congregate in lily-white enclaves like Vermont (the whitest state in the Union, according to the Census) and Marin County, California? White liberals hector others incessantly about the need for "diversity," but most have no interest in living in neighborhoods with large numbers of blacks. The ideal society in the liberal mind always seems to be a Scandinavian socialist one (which is to say that liberals strive to make the U.S. more like some of the most uniformly white nations in the world). The liberal enforcers of racial correctness are quick to decry the...

    Black Eyed Peas rapper is the typical Hollywood-esque global warming alarmist. He's also the typical hypocrite who touts the apocalyptic effects of climate change, and then rides around in his helicopter -- or, technically, his "hip.hop.copter." Mr. attended a climate change conference at Oxford University before lifting off to carry the Olympic torch on the same day. On May 21, the American musician, who is also a coach on the British version of the singing competition television show “The Voice,” tweeted pictures of his helicopter as he was leaving Oxford and headed to Taunton, where he would help carry a...

    One almost has to feel sorry for Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt. He showed up on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 yesterday probably expecting the type of softball questions that MSNBC hosts would toss at him. Instead, Anderson Cooper took a page from Cory Booker's criticism of "nauseating" attacks on private equity firms such as Bain Capital and kept asking LaBolt how the Obama campaign can criticize Bain while simultaneously raising funds from the same type of companies. The clearly unprepared LaBolt spent the interview filibustering with a flurry of words that were designed not to answer the questions about the...

    Just in time to pack your beach bag with some good summer reading, President Obama’s aunt has penned a book sure to connect with a wide swath of Americans. Zeituni Onyango’s new memoir “Tears of Abuse” was released quietly in late March. The Boston Herald’s Howie Carr brought national attention to it Friday in a tongue-in-cheek column based on a fresh press release for the book. According to Carr, Onyango’s book deals with her supposed victimization in America while living off the taxpayer’s dime. “Auntie” Zeituni Onyango indentifies herself as “an advocate for peace and a writer” on her personal...

    Eric Holder’s incompetent team of legal minds has botched things up again. Roger Clemens is in a fight for his life, and his enemies are fierce, partisan and patently unfair. His alleged crime—making false statements to Henry Waxman in a congressional hearing-- has cost the American taxpayer tens of millions of dollars, all because in 2008, during an election year, Henry Waxman needed a high profile hearing to showboat, to garner as much publicity as possible, to allow him to bang his gavel, to feel superior, to peacock around. Waxman could have decided to focus legitimate attention on the use...
