  • New details in Fast & Furious

    Tucson News Now ^ | Apr 20, 2012 | NA
    Congress has learned the most wanted man in the Fast and Furious investigation, Manuel Acosta, was allowed to traffic thousands of guns to Mexico. Only after the death of Border Agent Brian Terry south of Tucson was Acosta's operation shut down. He was arrested and released at least three times during the operation. That's why congressional investigators suspect the justice department is unwilling to talk about Acosta's possible role as an informant. Rep. Jason Chaffetz said, "We could have taken him in and prosecuted him anything. It's either total incompetence or maybe it's something a bit more coordinated that the...

    President Obama's Press Secretary Jay Carney lashed out at the GOP for “politicizing the upcoming elections.” “They're trying to exploit so-called scandals and policy failures for political gain,” Carney complained. The scandals referenced by Carney included the sexploits of the Secret Service in Columbia and lavish parties thrown by the General Services Administration (GSA). “These things aren't the President's fault,” Carney insisted. “Historically, the role of the Secret Service has been to cover up the President's illicit sexual liaisons, not engage in their own. What would've happened to President Kennedy or Clinton if their bodyguards had been as self-serving as...

Those donors will be named "Founding Members" of Romney Victory and invited to a California retreat with Romney and offered "yet to...

    New York Times ^ | April 20, 2012 | NICHOLAS CONFESSORE and DEREK WILLIS
    President Obama’s re-election campaign is straining to raise the huge sums it is counting on to run against Mitt Romney, with sharp dropoffs in donations from nearly every major industry forcing it to rely more than ever on small contributions and a relative handful of major donors. From Wall Street to Hollywood, from doctors and lawyers, the traditional big sources of campaign cash are not delivering for the Obama campaign as they did four years ago. The falloff has left his fund-raising totals running behind where they were at the same point in 2008 — though well ahead of Mr....

    The greening of a classic car makes it unrecognizable to drivers. The Ford Motor Company is giving its Mustang a unique 50th birthday present: death. Detroit will still market an automobile called the Mustang. It just won't bear much of a resemblance to the iconic roadster driven by the likes of Lt. Frank Bullitt and James Bond. Ford's new "Evos" concept features gull-wing doors, a rounded, aerodynamic body, and a smaller design clearly inspired by Europe. When Ford officially unveils its new Mustang in 2014, company insiders insist it will embrace this visual transformation. More pertinent than its changing look...

    Politico ^ | 4/20/12 | Abby Phillip & Dave Levinthal
    President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign in March raised $46.4 million and spent $37.7 million — not including money raised with the Democratic National Committee, new federal campaign finance filings indicate. That easily exceeded what presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney generated for March — $12.6 million — while still facing a stiff primary challenge from Rick Santorum, who’s since dropped out. Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee raised $7.3 million in March, not including Obama committee-related transfers. The DNC, which operated a joint fundraising committee with the Obama campaign, may use the money it raises to benefit Obama and other Democrats.

    In the heady days of 2008, starry-eyed pundits predicted that the election of Barack Obama would lead to a complete rehabilitation of America’s image in the world. President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, less than a year into his first term, reinforced this narrative. Three plus years later, that shiny new president smell is gone, and the flashy new car as a few nicks and dents. A new Gallup poll finds that the “Obama bounce” in foreign views of American has lost momentum and in some countries, (in Africa and Latin America and in a number of European countries) has fallen...

    NEW YORK—President Barack Obama should not bother trying to pass gun-control legislation because the issue is partly cultural and Obama is from an urban area, former President Bill Clinton said Thursday. Clinton was asked about the gun issue during his keynote address at a New York City conference on sustainability.

This is straining already-stretched government finances while posing a long-term economic threat by creating an ever-growing pool of permanently dependent working-age Americans.

    In America we elect presidents, we don't worship them. But the Weekly Standard blog offered a headline on April 17, 2012 that seemed to contradict this traditional practice. In a short piece by Daniel Halper the headline was "Michelle Obama: 'This President Has Brought Us Out of the Dark and Into the Light' If it were not a direct quote taken from Michelle Obama's rally speech at a campaign event in Nashville, Tennessee earlier the same day, we could only imagine that some virulent anti-Obama politico went too far and just made up a false and despiteful headline to hurt...

    SNIP The curious fact is, President Obama’s attorney, Alexandra Hill, couldn’t have been more adamant about not citing the online birth certificate as a means of proving the president’s identity in this recent challenge – and after everyone went to so much trouble to get it! Indeed, she called the Internet image “legally irrelevant,” arguing that New Jersey law doesn’t specifically call for a birth certificate to qualify a presidential candidate for the ballot. Exactly how a presidential candidate demonstrates he is at least 35 years old and “natural born,” the constitutional requirement New Jersey upholds, Hill didn’t say, but...

    Newt Gingrich may not have got the memo but the battle for the Republican nomination is over. Some in the Romney campaign were hoping for a Febuary end but others were fearing it would go on until June and a small number of Republicans even predicted a convention fight in August. All in all, April is not a bad result for Mitt Romney - long enough to test him, short enough to allow him to focus solely on the general for the final six months. Despite the very recent and ugly and negative primaries, Romney's struggle with conservatives and the...

    * By: Larry Walker, Jr. *“Ultimately the buck stops with me… I'm going to be accountable." ~ Barack Obama *What a load of bull! Harry Reid’s U.S. Senate hasn’t passed a budget resolution since April 29, 2009. Barack Obama hasn’t presented a budget, at least not one acceptable to either Democrats or Republicans, since the day he set foot in office. Yet he thinks he should keep his job. But that’s not how it works in America. Obama was given a fair shot; he had his fair share of opportunities, but he chose to pass the buck, running his mouth...
