  • Biden to Father of SEAL Killed in Benghazi: ‘Did Your Son Always Have Balls the Size of Cue Balls?’

    The father of one of the former Navy SEALs killed in the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya says President Barack Obama wouldn’t even look him in the eye and Vice President Joe Biden was disrespectful during the ceremony when his son’s body returned to America. He also says the White House’s story on the attack doesn’t pass the smell test. Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, called into “The Glenn Beck Program” on TheBlazeTV Thursday and recounted his interactions with the president, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Biden at the ceremony for the Libya victims...

    .........On Monday’s broadcast of “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, Coulter said the ad’s dire predictions — along with threats by some liberals that blacks will riot if President Barack Obama loses in November — are simply invented to stir up emotions. “I think the threats to riot and the claim that abortion will be somehow miraculously be illegal in places like California and New York is not going to swing the undecided voters here,” Coulter said. “I will note that white liberals are always threatening black riots whenever they’re about to lose an election. Al [Gore] did it in...

    “I’m not going to spend a long time making a speech,” President Obama explained last night during a fundraiser in San Francisco last night, signalling that he would answer questions instead. “Most of you have been great friends for many years. Many of you supported me when I was running for the United States Senate, much less running for President. And so I think you know who I am and you know what I care about.” Instead, Obama began reminiscing about growing up in Hawaii, after he was introduced by a childhood friend, Pam Hamamoto. “It’s true that actually the...

    President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has been soliciting foreigners for donations, an explosive report from the conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) shows. Those foreign donors are allegedly visiting the Obama campaign’s donation solicitation Web pages through a social media website the campaign controls, and through an outside website that serves mostly Internet users from outside the United States. About 20 percent of visitors to the “my.barackobama.com” social media website “originated from foreign locations,” the report found. That Web address is owned and controlled by the Obama re-election campaign. “At no point during the [website's] subscription process is a visitor asked...

    Let’s get the obvious out of the way:Barack Obama lost last night’s presidential debate. The question is how badly it will hurt him. Heading into last night,the president enjoyed a lead of 3.1 points in the Real Clear Politics polling average. The margin was roughly consistent with where the race has been since Romney secured the Republican nomination in the spring,but it did reflect a slight tightening over the past week. But the immediate verdict from voters who watched the debate was clear,with 67 percent saying Romney fared better in a CNN flash poll,compared to just 25 percent for Obama....

    Team Obama made a priceless gaffe on Tuesday. Someone posted an e-card on barackobama.com of a woman with the text: “Vote Like Your Lady Parts Depend On It.” It begs the question, "But what if said lady parts are unemployed?" Obama shouldn’t take anyone's support for granted… The e-card was quickly taken down, but the citizen journalists on Twitter had already copied and promoted it, preserving it for future generations. [Beware the sharp eyes and long memory of the internet.] This is a new low in the Obama campaign’s effort to fight and win the culture war on the Left’s...

It's completely baffling, to those who grew up with any sort of sense of what America means and what the American character traditionally has been, that anybody can look at the man's record and want more of the same.

    Last Thursday night in Charlotte, the death of the American dream was on full display. While adoring throngs cheered President Barack Obama’s hackneyed bloviating, Barack Obama gained points in the polls. Whether those points last or not – whether Obama wins or not – the fact is this: America is now a nation balanced on the razor’s edge between the self-reliant and the self-declared victims. The 2012 presidential campaign was supposed to be a referendum on two major questions about Obama. First, has he done a good job? Second, what will he do if given four more years? And Thursday...

Thus, the word obviously went out to the President's many media partisans that Ryan had to be taken down.... The scariest of these "lies," from the perspective of the White House, was Ryan's charge that $716 billion was stolen from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. They know this charge is particularly dangerous for the President because it is a direct appeal to seniors, the...

This was not (contrary to what the BBC/Guardian axis would be bound to imply) simply to appease the "Jewish lobby"(on Jerusalem) or the Christian fundamentalist vote(on God). On the latter issue, there is a great deal of serious misunderstanding in Britain. The recognition of religion and its importance is not incidental to American political history and it has nothing to do with EvangelicalChristian pressure:it was a fundamental tenet of the Declaration ofIndependence that the basic human rights of "life,liberty...

    Internal emails between senior officials at The Gallup Organization, obtained by The Daily Caller, show senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod attempting to subtly intimidate the respected polling firm when its numbers were unfavorable to the president. After Gallup declined to change its polling methodology, Obama’s Department of Justice hit it with an unrelated lawsuit that appears damning on its face. TheDC is withholding the identities of the Gallup officials to protect them from potential retaliation from Obama’s campaign and his administration. In April, Axelrod tweeted that a poll showing Mitt Romney with a 48-43 percent lead over Obama was...

The possibility of rain must have been considered.

This year, however, that language has been removed. Indeed, there is no mention of Jerusalem in the 2012 party platform adopted by Democrats. In this year's Democratic platform, there is this boilerplate language about Israel: President Obama and the Democratic Party maintain an unshakable commitment to Israel’s security.

In the fight for civility and substance over pointless hyperbole, Biden may not be the worst offender. But he’s an offender nonetheless, and he should apologize....
