  • Ten quotes: Obama’s journey from ‘yes we can’ to ‘so sue me’

    the hill ^ | 7/4/14 | Peter Sullivan
    President Obama has gone from “yes we can” to “so sue me.” The president’s standoffish remark this week about a Republican lawsuit was a reminder of how much Obama’s rhetoric has changed since his 2008 campaign and its promise to deliver a new kind of politics. These ten Obama quotations illustrate the transformation. 1. July 27, 2004: “There's not a liberal America and a conservative America. There's the United States of America.” Obama vaults onto the national stage with a call for unity at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. 2. Feb. 5, 2008: “We know that what began as...

    Do you believe in fairy tales? I don’t simply because I’ve already outgrown my childhood fascination for magic wands, fairy godmothers and frogs and beasts that turned into handsome princes. And let’s not even talk about damsels in distress who had to wait for their superficial saviors to hand them their own pre-conceived notion of happiness. But I do believe in the power of luck and hardwork and that if you have what it takes to weather the storms and climb the heavens to chase your stars, more than likely, you'll be able to catch more than what you have...

    As written by me earlier this month, I came in contact with a lady who travelled from Rotterdam to Hoboken, New Jersey on the ship Maasdam IV, thirteen days in june 1962. Just like the Oswalds did. remarkable: never before was a passenger of the 1962-trip tracked down by anyone. remarkable: she was staying in cabin 471, the Oswalds slept in 473: they were neighbours. remarkable: she saw Oswald a lot, didn't talk to him. She never saw Marina and June. She sent me two pictures: first time we see pictures of the ship during those days in june 1962....

    I am going to cite a few Bible verses for you, and I want you to ask yourself if you see them as realities you can relate to from experience, or merely idealistic concepts that perhaps sound pleasing to hear, and may believe them to a degree, but just not now, not at this particular moment in time. 1 John 5:4-5 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son...

    Reality TV star and accused White House gatecrasher Michaele Salahi has run off with Journey's lead guitarist. Salahi's husband, Tareq, had claimed his wife had been kidnapped and criticised authorities for not looking for her. Now it has been revealed Michaele, who starred in Real Housewives of DC is actually living with Journey rocker Neal Schon, the New York Post reports. 'Mrs. Salahi said she did not want Mr. Salahi to know where she was,' said police in Warren County, Virginia, in a statement. 'She seemed calm, was engaged in conversation and assured the deputy that she had left the...

    I drive trucks for a living. Big trucks. My routes often take me coast to coast. So I have a lot of time to listen to music on my truck stereo. Well after over 30 years of dismissing the rock band Journey as an insufferably lame musical group, I must say that all of a sudden, I am actually starting to like some of their songs. Where I used to have stations like "Outlaw Country" and "Willie's Place" as my Sirius radio presets, I now find that I have stations like "Classic Rewind" and "70s on 7" dialed in...

It was snowing greatly that day, in Lincoln, and in the rest of Nebraska, silver-dollar sized flakes drifting down, covering the ground to several inches, and causing the trees to sag from the weight. I had just gotten done eating supper with classmates, who were all agog and excited about going home for Christmas. I had my...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday will open a debate that has stymied them for at least a decade: the future of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the giant housing finance agencies nearly felled by the credit crisis. Congress is facing the daunting task of remaking the companies after steep mortgage losses led the Treasury in September to seize control of the two financing agencies. The stakes are high, with President Barack Obama counting on the reach of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to carry out his plans to improve housing affordability for nine million Americans. Decisions made...

    In the wake of each election, we must always remember how proud History is of our endeavor. While most of History is littered with violent exchanges of power, the United States rather calmly transitions between one Presidency and the next. And so it will be again despite the loss of this election. We must also keep things in perspective. After all, when Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton and the rest fought to secure our freedom, there was no working democracy in the world. Prior to World War II, there were but six such outposts of Liberty and the majority of democracies in...

    Pigeon's epic journey back to her owner Last Updated: 2:42AM BST 19/06/2008 A racing pigeon has flown back to her original owner, 10 years after he gave the bird away. 'Boomerang' turned up at the home of pigeon-fancier Dino Rearden on Father's Day, a decade after he gave her to a friend. The 13-year-old pigeon had already made a name for herself in 1998, when she made a 1,200 mile trip from a pigeon breeder in Algericas, Spain, back to Mr Rearden's home in Skipton, North Yorks. The 76-year-old, who bred pigeons for the RAF during the Second World War,...

    Legendary rockers Journey have hired a Filipino fan to front the band after parting ways with Jeff Scott Soto earlier this year. The band discovered Arnel Pineda, from Quezon City in the Philippines via YouTube, when they saw footage of him singing Journey songs in his homeland with his band The Zoo. Original frontman Steve Perry was replaced in 1998 with Steve Augeri who was forced to leave the band due to health problems. But Pineda almost missed his dream job after initially assuming emails from guitarist Neal Schon were a hoax. “My friend Noel picked up the message on...

    QUETZALTENANGO, Guatemala -- Across Central America, growing numbers of impoverished children appear to be setting out for the United States on their own, risking robbery, rape and death as they try to sneak illegally through Mexico and across the U.S. border. Last year, 6,460 underage illegal immigrants from Central America were detained in the United States while traveling without their parents and sent to government shelters, a 35 percent increase over the previous year. Many others likely slipped in undetected.

Mexican immigration authorities intercepted and deported 232,000 Central Americans last year, compared with a total of 72,561 people from Central and South America who were caught and sent home during the 2005 fiscal year by the U.S. Border Patrol.

    LOS ANGELES - A NASA spacecraft bound for Mars is nearing the end of its seven-month journey but still faces a white-knuckle arrival at a planet known for swallowing scientific probes, mission managers said Friday. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, or MRO, is on course to enter orbit around the Red Planet on March 10. If successful, it will spend the next two years photographing the surface and scouting for future landing sites. The spacecraft is performing so well that engineers have canceled two final maneuvers to adjust its course in the last leg of the trip, said James Graf, project...

His book chronicling his quest to regain control of his life by crossing America on foot is scheduled to be published soon.

    TOKYO - A Japanese spacecraft on an unprecedented mission to bring asteroid material back to Earth is set to start home despite showing signs of trouble earlier, an executive of Japan's space agency, JAXA, said Sunday. On Saturday, the Hayabusa probe apparently landed on the Itokawa asteroid and collected surface samples. After the landing, the probe hovered about three miles from the asteroid and appeared to be shaking due to a possible gas leak from a thruster, JAXA said. The probe shut down all its engines Saturday and switched to solar power while JAXA investigated the problem. But the probe...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has embarked on a multistate fundraising swing to raise some of the estimated $50 million his advisers say he'll need to wage an all-but-certain special election campaign. Schwarzenegger arrives in Tampa on Friday before schmoozing with Gov. Jeb Bush and deep-pocket donors Saturday at a lunch in Miami. He then heads to Illinois and Texas, where he ends with a cocktail and dinner party Monday night in Dallas. The trip comes at a critical time in California and for the Republican governor. Democrats and the state's powerful labor unions are attacking his...

Perhaps, like me, you feel indebted to the “wise men from the East” as you read the twelve verses where they make their...
