    Julia La Roche October 13, 2014 We asked billionaire energy tycoon T. Boone Pickens on Friday what worries him the most about America. "Lack of leadership," he said. "We have the worst president we ever had," Pickens said. "I mean, he's going to be determined the worst before he ever gets out of office. He accomplished a lot less in eight years. Nobody else has ever done that. You know, Jimmy Carter loves him because he was the worst until he showed up, Obama (snip)
  • Romney stands by criticism of Obama over Cairo attack response

    Mitt Romney on Wednesday stood by his criticism of the Obama administration for its early response to the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, even as he and President Obama mourned the murder of four Americans including the U.S. ambassador in a separate attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Romney said the administration's initial response to the attack in Cairo was "akin to apology" and a "severe miscalculation." Both assaults were linked to a video being promoted in the U.S. that ridiculed Islam's Prophet Muhammad. The U.S. Embassy in Cairo at first issued a statement saying, in...

    (CBS/AP) U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens was among four Americans killed in an attack by Muslim protesters on the U.S. consulate compound in Benghazi the previous evening, the U.S. government confirmed Wednesday. "I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens," President Obama said in a written statement released Wednesday morning. The U.S. government had confirmed one American death on Tuesday. President Obama said he had ordered heightened security at all U.S. diplomatic offices around the world in the wake of the attack in...

    Obama made a brief statement this morning about the death of American Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and three other Americans at our Libyan consulate on yesterday. Obama's prepared remarks reflected virtually word for word an earlier statement made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Despite a CBS News report to the contrary, Obama claimed that the Libyan security forces "fought back against the attackers." He also claimed that Libyan civilians attempted to aid Ambassador Stevens by transporting him to the hospital: Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety,...

    WASHINGTON - Intelligence experts and U.S. government officials are starting to view the attack in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi as a coordinated attack. Several sources have said they believe it was a planned operation and have pointed out several developments that seem to support the possibility. The President has ratcheted up security at embassies worldwide because of the incident.

    We need a picture of Jimmy Carter morphing into Obama and back. Many of us with our embassies under attack are feeling the pain of Carter deja vue. A picture of Carter morphing into Obozo and back might help the younger folks who wern't around when Carter allowed the Islamofacists to take over our embassy. That picture of Carter morphing into Obozo and back should/might wake up a lot of voters in a semi conscious daze.

    President Obama's slow ride down Gallup's daily presidential job approval index has finally passed below Jimmy Carter, earning Obama the worst job approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern political history. Since March, Obama's job approval rating has hovered above Carter's, considered among the 20th century's worst presidents, but today Obama's punctured Carter's dismal job approval line. On their comparison chart, Gallup put Obama's job approval rating at 43 percent compared to Carter's 51 percent.

    Economic Policy: Today's choppy economic growth conjures up memories of the '70s, when another Democrat presidency reigned over a similar period of stagnation, dubbed the era of "malaise." Like the Carter years, the Obama years so far are marked by anti-business policies and anemic business activity. This week's raft of gloomy economic reports confirm the zombie Obama recovery has hit another dangerous soft patch. Among the bad news: • Businesses last month slashed orders for autos and other durable goods by the largest amount in six months. • Industrial output dropped the most in April for any month since the...

    Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner announced May 16 that the U.S. government has reached its legal debt limit, and that he had to dip into federal pensions to meet the country’s obligations. And if Republicans stick to their demands for major spending cuts, Geithner is going to have to start getting even more creative. It wasn’t supposed to go like this. When Democrats decided to pass on raising the nation’s $14.29 trillion debt limit during the 111th Congress’ lame duck session this December, the game plan for the 112th Congress was simple: scare “responsible” Republicans into voting to raise the debt...

    More than 30 years ago in an era of gas lines and OPEC boycotts, Jimmy Carter addressed the American people from the Oval Office and confronted this political conundrum: "Why have we not been able to get together as a nation to resolve our serious energy problem?" Tuesday night, in the first Oval Office address of his presidency, Barack Obama is going to confront the environmental consequences of America's three-decade failure to resolve its serious energy problem. Far more than the president's pedestrian East Room press conference in late May, this speech probably will be what voters remember when they...

    President Barack Obama's public approval rating has plummeted faster than President Jimmy Carter’s, reports RealClearPolitics in its review of Gallup polling. Carter first polled at a 66 percent approval rating, dipping to 54 percent by September. Meanwhile, Obama has already tumbled down to 52 percent approval rating at the end of July, according to the latest Gallup survey. The bottom line: Obama began his presidency at 68, hitting 69 the following day. That translates to a 16 point drop since day one. In less time than Carter, Obama has fallen more, concluded the RealClearPolitics review. By contrast, Richard Nixon was...

    Obama wants to talk with Iran. But the question he refuses to answer is what he'd tell Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Obama dislikes being called an appeaser. But would he say to Iran: No deal unless you disown and disarm Hezbollah? We doubt it. More likely he'd sacrifice a country such as Lebanon to Tehran's ambitions in a modern-day Munich. In his book, "Bomb Scare: The History and Future of Nuclear Weapons," Obama adviser Joseph Cirincione, director of nuclear policy at the center for American Progress, says he favors Israel giving up its nuclear weapons to ensure Iran doesn't obtain nukes. That's...
