  • So How Many Times Did Obama Refer To Himself In Speech About Hillary? You Won't Believe It.

    Pesident Obama went all in for Hillary Clinton Wednesday, throwing down his presidential legacy and all his political and racial credentials to try to convince the disenfranchised, bitter "Berners" and rightly unenthused black voters to elect the most establishment and corrupt politician ever to run for the highest office. But as we've come to expect, in an Obama speech about, well, anything, it ended up being a whole lot more about himself than the subject at hand. And, frankly, with Clinton as the subject, it was probably a good move. In a mesmerizing video, Grabien highlights all the times Obama...

    Like a downfield receiver who turns to run before securing the ball and muffs the catch, Trump turned his eye to the general election and began to run toward the middle and so he muffed the election in Iowa. Trump believed the polls, he thought he had Iowa in the bag, he was counting on New Hampshire and almost immediately thereafter South Carolina; he thought he was unstoppable all the way to the nomination. All candidates by necessity project confidence in their ultimate victory but Trump went beyond that, in describing his upcoming tenure in the Oval Office he assumed...

    President Barack Obama boasted of his legacy during a town hall in Britain, asserting that he single- handedly saved the world during his presidency. Saving the world economy from a Great Depression that was pretty good, Obama bragged when asked by a student in London what he wanted his legacy to be. He recalled that when he visited London in 2009, the world economy was in a freefall because of irresponsible behavior of financial institutions around the world. For us to be able to mobilize the worlds community, to take rapid action, to stabilize the financial markets, and then...

    From his career in New York real estate to his extraordinary campaign for the White House, the court of Donald Trump has operated much like that of Louis XIV of France: everything revolves around the imperious, bouffanted Sun King. He is a total narcissist, and what you see here is the way hes always been, said a source intimately familiar with Trumps way of working, who declined to be identified criticising a potential president. This, between you and me, will be the destruction of the United States.

    Video ay link. President Obama said in an interview broadcast Sunday morning that his inability to reduce polarization between the political parties in Washington "gnaws" on him as he settles into his final year in office. "The one thing that gnaws on me-- is the degree of-- continued polarization," he said during an interview broadcast on "CBS Sunday Morning." "It's gotten worse-- over the last several years," Obama continued. "And I think that in those early months my expectation was is that-- we could pull-- the parties together a little more effectively." Obama campaigned in 2008 on a platform of...

    Elaborating on his failure to heal the partisan divide in Washington, President Obama said Thursday his presidency got off to a bad start in 2009 because some Republican lawmakers were more concerned about their re-election than they were in helping him to save the nation from economic ruin. Speaking at a town-hall-style event in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the president said he has "done soul-searching" in office about what he could have done differently to work more effectively with Republicans in Congress. "I think part of it had to do with when I came in, we had a real emergency and...

    It is hard not to feel protective over Donald Trump while the political classes are seething and scornful. They are unacquainted with such powerlessness. Control was never supposed to stray this far from their grasp. And their rage, manifested in every hapless attack on Trump and his supporters, actually seems to be improving the likelihood of that outcome they fear most of all. How tempting, under these circumstances, to rush to his defense, as so many in the conservative movement have already done. The Donald has boldly made himself a standard bearer of unpopular (…within the political bubble), yet critical...

    I know a televangelist candidate when I see one.

In other words, he's exactly what the Republican primary voters want. On this score, I side with the Republican primary voters. If Cruz's problem is that he is a conservative who has no regard for senatorial decorum and fights too hard for the right things, I'm all in. But there is a far bigger problem with Cruz: Donald Trump...

Counterterrorism worked well in Yemen until the emergency evacuation of embassy and Special Ops forces and the loss of millions in arms. The president's half-hearted "war" on the Islamic State is also a "success." As is ObamaCare, never been working better. Just as he promised.

People wonder, why do so many Muslims (both Sunni and Shiite) operate with such an “apocalyptic,” end-of-world mindset?Our secular society, however, coupled with the media’s carelessness, is bandying about words like apocalyptic without using them properly and without explanation.

    Why is The New York Times lamenting the souring of the personal relationship between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instead of assuming Obama will subordinate his personal feelings to America's national interest? Well, probably because they know he won't. He's a man scorned -- and he's getting more and more dangerous. Scorned? Yes, because when you don't bow to the wishes of a man with his personality, he apparently takes it as a personal affront.

The manifests itself most obviously in the fact that, once he’s set himself on an intellectual or behavioral path, he is incapable of change — or at least, incapable of change based upon external critique and criticism. To a narcissist, any such external input must either be ignored or twisted so that it conforms to the narcissists own immutable infallibility.Everything that I just wrote is highly abstract. If...

While it is fair to say that most members of the medical community believe that Hickox is not a threat to those around her – she has tested negative for the disease, reports that she is feeling fine, and would not be contagious at this stage even if she were infected – some medical...

    Nurse Kaci Hickox who remains symptom-free after spending three days in a New Jersey isolation tent after flying home from Ebola-stricken West Africa remains under quarantine at home in Maine, but for only another day, she tells TODAY's Matt Lauer. I dont plan on sticking to the guidelines. I remain appalled by these home quarantine policies that have been forced upon me, even though I am in perfectly good health and feeling strong and have been this entire time completely symptom free, said Hickox, who wouldnt emerge from Maines 21-day voluntary quarantine until Nov. 10. I truly believe...

    The National Park Service is investigating a woman who appears to have traveled from New York to several Western states in recent weeks in order to paint pointless, embarrassingly unsightly drivel all over a bunch of Americas most pristine and most iconic national parks. The crap sketcher is Casey Nocket, Modern Hiker reports. Nocket, 21, left her trail of twaddle in nearly a dozen federally-protected parks including Yosemite National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Crater Lake National Park, Joshua Tree National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park.

    Need to Spot a Narcissist? Just Ask Them By Mary Elizabeth Dallas Narcissists don't have much empathy for others, which can be problematic for society. Study suggests that the truly self-obsessed will agree with statement, 'I am a narcissist.' Self-absorbed narcissists can ruin your day, but a new study suggests an easy way to detect one: Just ask. That's because truly narcissistic people don't see the character trait as a flaw and are more than willing to admit to it, say researchers from Ohio State University. "People who are narcissists are almost proud of the fact," study co-author Brad Bushman,...

What happened to the happy birthday thing?" When reporters loudly protested the president replied "You're not that pent up. I've been giving questions lately," and he proceeded to answer two more question before ending the event.

    But enough about me. Let's talk about how you feel about me . . . Maybe Barack Obama should modify his famous New Age-y line, uttered after the 2008 Super Tuesday results, to read "I am the one I have been waiting for." In recent times, it's become an entertaining parlor game to count the number of self references in President Obama's public statements. The latest opportunity to play the game comes via a fund-raising email the prez sent out this morning. Defiantly entitled "I Won't Apologize," the short message contains by my count no fewer than 11 self-references [12...

    President Obama said Thursday that he may have suffered from mild concussions while playing football in his childhood. "When I was young and played football briefly, there were a couple times where I'm sure that that ringing sensation in my head and the needing to sit down for a while might have been a mild concussion, and at the time you didn't think anything of it," Obama said at a White House event designed to highlight the risks of sports-related brain injuries. Obama said his experience was common and underscored the need to "change the culture" around concussion injuries in...
