    Could Hillary's smile cost her the election? Twitter mocks Clinton's 'creepy grandma' grin as she smirks her way through presidential debate -Viewers were distracted by Clinton's stubborn smile during the debate -They took to Twitter in their droves to describe it as 'creepy' and 'scary' -Some likened her to a 'grandma' while others said it was proof she is 'evil' [can't post the pictures since they are from Getty and Reuters but click through for some really scary stuff] The Democratic candidate faced a flood of insults as she took to the stage at the University of Las Vegas, with...
  • President Obama Cited Batman: The Dark Knight In White House Strategy Meetings

    It doesn't matter how high up the ranks you've travelled, or how much you've achieved, you can always learn something from Batman. In a recent interview with President Barack Obama (via The Atlantic), it is revealed that during White House strategy meetings with his advisors, President Obama would recall a scene in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, in regards to Isis, and how that faction has grown. “There’s a scene in the beginning in which the gang leaders of Gotham are meeting,” the president would say. “These are men who had the city divided up. They were thugs, but there was a kind of...

  • Obama: America Has Become Less Racially Divided Under My Presidency

    No, the president answered. I actually think that its probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided. Inskeep also asked the president about working with a Congress where both houses are controlled by Republicans. Obama offered a familiar answer. Now youve got Republicans in a position where its not enough for them simply to grind the wheels of Congress to a halt and then blame me, he said.

    President Obama believes that the United States is less racially divided than when he took office in 2009. Asked in an NPR interview set to air starting Monday whether the nation is more racially divided than six years ago, Obama said "No." "I actually think that it's probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided," Obama told "Morning Edition" host Steve Inskeep. Excerpts of the interview were released before broadcast by NPR. A majority of Americans, 53 percent, believe that race relations have worsened under America's first black president, compared to 36 percent who say they have stayed the same...

    Rep. Paul D. Ryan might have just given away the road map for House consideration of immigration reform. Tentatively, in October, were going to vote on a border security bill, an interior enforcement bill, a bill for legal immigration, the Wisconsin Republican and Budget Committee chairman told constituents at a district town hall event Friday, according to a report by the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. Ryan also reportedly said negotiations were underway for the chamber to vote on legislation that would provide undocumented immigrants with probationary visas while they waited a minimum of 15 years to attain citizenship. The timetable is...

    The screams and cries of bloody marathon bombing victims still haunt the nurses who treated them one week ago. They did their jobs as they were trained to do, putting their own fears in a box during their 12-hour shifts so they could better comfort their patients. Only now are these nurses beginning to come to grips with what they endured, and are still enduring as they continue to care for survivors. They are angry, sad and tired.

    Finally, a clear explanation on Joeys debate behavior, and it has nothing to do with his meds: Vice President Joe Biden's repeated laughter during Thursday's debate was a reflection of the "enormous amount of passion and joy" he brings to the job of serving the American people, White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Friday. Neo-Neo thinks she knows where Joeys passion and joy comes from: Bidens laughter is derisive laughter, in keeping with the Obama campaign theme of contempt for the opposition. Charles Krauthammer thinks(snip) "Biden's debate preparation was watching repeatedly 'The Shining.' "HEEEERE'S JOEY!"Personally, Im sticking with...

    So, you are at a meeting at work, or say at a Church meeting. You are talking, and some guy is constantly mugging, laughing smirking. You are distracted by it, as is everyone else. But if you stop and call him on it, engage, he just turns up the juice, becomes totally disruptive, and wins. so what do you do? Ignore it and hope everyone else sees him for the fool he is? Or come out with some clever one liner, if you can think of one: "didnt your parents teach you any manners?" Or reach over and slap the...

    LOS ANGELES President Barack Obama opened a two-day fundraising swing through California on Sunday with a "30 Days to Victory Concert" starring George Clooney, Jon Bon Jovi, Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, Katy Perry, and Jennifer Hudson. He also seemed to poke fun at his own listless debate performance last week against Mitt Romney. "Everybody here is incredible professionals, they're such great friends and they just perform flawlessly night after night. I can't always say the same," Obama said, drawing laughter and cheers from the crowd. Looking back at 2008, Obama said, "everybody always remembers the victory, but...

    By any honest measurement Barack Hussein Obama has been a dismal failure as a President. Few if any Presidents have been given as much power in their first term as Obama and done so little. In fact for two years he had an unassailable super majority in congress and still his administration has been unable to do something as simple as craft a budget much less control runaway unemployment, a crippling deficit, and the terrorist overthrow of the middle east. While contemplating how anyone could do much worse than Obama, it came to me: Obama is such a failure that...

    BYERS, Colo. Less than a month before carrying out the midnight movie massacre that left 12 dead, suspected shooter James Holmes applied for membership at a private gun range, unnerving the clubs owner whose calls to Holmes apartment reached a creepy, weird Batman-inspired voicemail message. His answering machine message was incoherent, just bizarre, really bizarre -- slurring words, but he didnt sound drunk, just strange -- I could make out James somewhere in it, Glenn Rotkovich, of the Lead Valley Range, in Byers, Colo., told

    ABC's Good Morning America, via YahooNews ^ | July 20, 2012 | SHEILA MARIKAR, Good Morning America
    "Violence like the massacre that happened in Aurora, Colo., today is a staple of action films, including Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. A similar, now haunting, scene unfurls in "The Dark Knight Rises" when a masked villain leads a violent gang into a packed football stadium and deploys guns and explosives on the unsuspecting crowd. While there has been no indication as to the motives of James Holmes, the suspected 24-year-old shooter who is now in custody, new evidence suggests that he was inspired by the Batman series of comic books and/or movies. Law enforcement sources confirmed to ABC News that...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the gunman suspected of attacking a crowded movie theater in Aurora, Colorado resembled Batmans arch-villain The Joker at the time of the shocking attack. We have some information, most of it is public. It clearly looks like a deranged individual. He had his hair painted red, he said he was The Joker, obviously the enemy of Batman, Kelly said at a news conference after noon.
