    (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...

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 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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

    President Obama and his supporters have had a turbulent relationship with Supreme Court. It reached a low point when he said that striking down his massive health care overhaul—which he said “was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress”—would be an act of illicit “judicial activism.” Though the president later backtracked, his allies continue to lament the prospect that the Supreme Court will do its job—most recently in a Chicago Tribune op-ed penned by House Minority Nancy Pelosi this week. The episode harkens back to a nasty chapter in legal history: the clash between the Court and...

    Earlier this week Elizabeth Warren was asked by the Boston Globe a seemingly simple and straightforward question about her taxes: In 2011, did she pay the 5.85% rate (which is voluntary) on her Massachusetts state tax form? Since 2001, as I explained in a previous post, residents of the Commonwealth have had the option – if they so choose – to pay a higher tax rate than the 5.3% minimum. And since the former consumer advocate raked in more than $700,000 last year, the Globe believed their inquiry was an appropriate and reasonable one. At the time, however, she refused...

President Obama erred during a speech at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia, when attempting to call the disputed archipelago by its Spanish name. Instead of saying Malvinas, however, Mr Obama referred to the islands as the Maldives, a group of 26 atolls off that lie off the South coast of India.

Luckily, we were able to find it an adoptive home.” The plant’s new home will be...

The Obamas paid an effective rate of 20.5 percent. White House aides would not reveal presidential secretary Anita Breckenridge’s tax rate but confirmed it was higher than the first family's rate. Breckenridge earned $95,000 last year. The Obamas' rate is less than the 30 percent the president wants millionaires to pay under his proposed Buffett Rule.

Law Students for Reproductive Justice, the national body of the Georgetown affiliate for which Sandra Fluke was once president, condemned Limbaugh for such language in early March.

    If offensive slurs are a problem for the left, why does Al Sharpton have a primetime slot on MSNBC? The left has started a war against Rush Limbaugh -- a war it cannot win. Limbaugh said something for which he later apologized, and rather than accept that apology, the left and its media allies decided to exploit the situation, turning it into a crusade to take an opposing voice off the air. Even the White House has jumped on this neo-fascist bandwagon. Not the Obama campaign. The White House. The People's House. This is, pure and simple, a crusade to...

  • Obama and art of hollow words

    03/13/2012 3:35:14 PM PDT · by Iam1ru1-2 · 1 replies
    At his press conference, pushed through deliberately on the very same day of the Republican Party’s Super Tuesday event, President Obama chose to not only dilute the media coverage of the candidates’ presidential ambitions but to essentially reverse his pro-Israel AIPAC speech of the day before. In short, the President’s words rang hollow regarding his alleged support for embattled Israel. Worse, he again bamboozled many in the audience into believing he was the most supportive U.S. president of the Jewish state in history. Tragically, far too many Jewish Americans still remain tied by some mystical umbilical cord to the Democrat...

    Gulag Bound ^ | Arlen Williams
    Certain of us at Gulag Bound were expecting Glenn Beck to do something to sink Rick Santorum, whom he had recently endorsed. This Friday night, it happened. He was brought into the O’Reilly Factor for only a brief time via remote transmission, specifically to say, “I’m a supporter of Rick Santorum but…” …it is time to end the race and after all, Mitt Romney is a good man of business and surely must be a better solution than Barack Obama…. Beck took on the well timed mantra of the GOP insider punditry.That was the only significant matter discussed. This was...

    - Former New York Times Co (NYT.N) Chief Executive Janet Robinson received a total payout of nearly $24 million after she left the newspaper publisher at the end of last year, according to a regulatory filing on Friday. Robinson, a 28-year veteran with the company, has yet to be replaced by Chairman and Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr, who is temporarily acting in her place. Robinson's package includes a $4.5 million consulting fee that The Times had agreed to pay as part of her exit package, as well as pension benefits and performance-related payments. Excluding the consulting fee, Robinson would have...

    The Band Of Patriots ^ | 3/7/12 | Bryan Thomas
    Last week, Rush Limbaugh made some divisive comments on his radio show about a young Sandra Fluke who was advocating for government paid birth control. After making these comments, there was outcry all over America calling Rush Limbaugh a misogynist. Soon after, President Barack Obama called Sandra Fluke to console her and to let her know that “her parents should be proud.” Rush Limbaugh has since apologized to Ms. Fluke but she rejected his apology. I believe it is disgusting and self-centered that anyone would ask the government to pay for their birth control. In no way does our government...

We've all witnessed the liberal establishment pouncing on Rush Limbaugh this past week because of comments which he directed at Sandra Fluke, a long time liberal activist. Brian Maloney, writing at his Blog Radio Equalizer, notes how, "When looking for fresh examples of 'progressive' hate talk, it really doesn't take much digging. From any day's libtalk lineup, pick an hour at random and one or more will usually slither its way to the surface quickly enough. But why go to the trouble? We've already done the work for you,...

    Syndicated liberal talker MIKE MALLOY may have his own controversy, as LIMBAUGH supporters point out that MALLOY made comments FRIDAY that painted victims of that day's deadly tornadoes as "little grease spots on the pavement" put there by "their God." MALLOY's comments, reported by BRIAN MALONEY's RADIO EQUALIZER site, included, "They keep being killed, you know, their God, if this is where they want to look at it, keeps smashing them into little grease spots on the pavement in -- uh -- uh -- in -- in, you know, in ALABAMA and MISSISSIPPI and ARKANSAS and, uh, GEORGIA and, uh,...

    Alex Pareene writes on www.uruknet.info: “The Jonas Brothers are here; they’re out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans. But boys, don’t get any ideas. I have two words for you, ‘predator drones.’ You will never see it coming.” Hah! It’s funny because predator drone strikes in Pakistan have killed literally hundreds of completely innocent civilians, and now the president is evincing a casual disregard for those lives he is responsible for ending by making a lighthearted joke about killing famous young celebrities for the crime of attempting to sleep with his young daughters. (Really, everything about the joke...

Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Bill Maher, Matt Taibbi, and Ed Schultz have been waging it for years with their misogynist outbursts. There have been boycotts by people on the left who are outraged that these guys still have jobs. Oh, wait. Sorry, that never happened." -- Kirsten Powers

    President Barack Obama was so touched by the travails of Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University law student derided as a "slut" by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, that he called her personally on the phone to offer comfort and encouragement, according to the Washington Post. Fluke had been dragged into her 15 minutes of fame when she gave testimony to an unofficial congressional committee to complain about the high cost of birth control for students whose contraceptive needs were not covered by insurance at religiously affiliated schools. Limbaugh, making something of a stretch by suggesting Fluke was demanding other...
