    The photos are now widespread online and in newspapers, images of a confident President Obama striding toward the camera to announce the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. Not so widespread, however, is the news that the photos weren’t from Obama’s actual history-making speech. According to a Reuters blog post, the photos were taken after Obama’s actual announcement, during a brief reenactment minutes later. ~SNIP~ The reenactment isn’t the only way the administration has edited its media rollout of bin Laden’s death. In a widely used photo of Obama and his national security team in the Situation Room, what...

    “As President Obama continued his nine-minute address in front of just one main network camera, the photographers were held outside the room by staff and asked to remain completely silent. Once Obama was off the air, we were escorted in front of that teleprompter and the President then re-enacted the walk-out and first 30 seconds of the statement for us.”

    The Telegraph UK ^ | 5/2/11 | Alex Spillius in Washington
    Senator Barack Obama has said that Osama bin Laden should be brought to justice in a way that would prevent the terrorist leader becoming a martyr. Seeking to portray himself as tough enough to be commander-in-chief, the Democratic presidential candidate warned that there was an executive order dating back to Bill Clinton's presidency that allowed the CIA to kill bin Laden if capture was not an option. "If I'm president, and we have the opportunity to capture him, we may not be able to capture him alive," he said. Though he refused to detail what approach he would take to...

    Yes, Osama dead. However, the President could not resist the urge to stretch ...the truth during his announcement. It's a shame really, that he chose to sour what could be his greatest accomplishment by adding an untruthful statement. ...President Obama told the nation late tonight that he made the capture or killing of Osama Bin Laden a "top priority" and instructed CIA Chief Leon Panetta to make this job number one. That's great! If only it were true. Unfortunately this is another example of Obama's revisionist history. From the Official Obama Administration Scandals List... Obama Flip Flopped on Capturing...
  • Gibbs: indefinite detention of terrorists regrettable

    Gibbs: indefinite detention of terrorists regrettable White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Sunday that it was unfortunate that some terrorist suspects at Guantanamo Bay need to be held indefinitely without trial. "Some would be tried in federal courts, as we've seen done in the past. Some would be tried in military commissions, likely spending the rest of their lives in a maximum security prison that nobody, including terrorists, have ever escaped from. Some, regrettably, will have to be indefinitely detained," Gibbs said on CNN's "State of the Union" as he described Obama's beleaguered plan for closing Guantanamo. The press...

    Republicans are prepared to vote down a bill extending all but the top-end tax cuts, the second-ranking GOP leader in the House said Tuesday. Incoming House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said on Bloomberg Television he was ready to instruct GOP members to vote down legislation Democrats plan to bring to the floor that would extend the expiring Bush-era tax cuts only for the middle class. Democrats in both the House and the Senate have signaled they would bring up for a vote this week bills that would extend tax cuts for all households earning less than $250,000 per year...

    [Snip] THE JOBS REPORT FOR OCTOBER was released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday, and at first blush was surprisingly strong, much stronger, indeed, than expected. Payrolls expanded by 151,000 and the two previous months' were revised upward. But hold the hurrahs. The unemployment rate was stuck at 9.6%, and, toss in the underemployed and the rate remains at an elevated 17%. Moreover, the household version of the employment picture was a real bummer, showing an employment drop of 330,000. That especially weird disparity between the household and the payroll reports made us do a double-take. Happily, the...

    Despite outrage over George Bush's limited ability to wiretap into American phone calls, Obama wants to take it a step further and be able to monitor every single form of communication any American citizen uses. The same kind of authority the government has to wiretap into phone calls could be coming to Facebook, instant messaging, and every American's browser history, thanks to a push from the Obama administration. The White House plans to introduce a bill into Congress next year that would give Obama the ability to tap into literally every communication any citizen makes online. The move causes a...

    The Obama administration is developing plans that would require all Internet-based communication services -- such as encrypted BlackBerry e-mail, Facebook, and Skype -- to be capable of complying with federal wiretap orders, according to a report published Monday. National security officials and federal law enforcement argue their ability to eavesdrop on terror suspects is increasingly "going dark," The New York Times reported, as more communication takes place via Internet services, rather than by traditional telephone. The bill, which the White House plans to deliver to Congress next year, would require communication service providers be technically capable of intercepting and decrypting...

    Democrats: Economy better now than it was before Obama By Michael O'Brien - 09/07/10 01:29 PM ET The economy is in a better position now than it was when President Obama took office, Democrats argued Tuesday. The White House and a top congressional leader made the case that the economy has improved under Democratic control of government, though polls showed voters are less convinced. "I think by virtually any measure, our economy is a better place than it was two years ago," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said at his daily briefing. The assertion came amid new polls showing...

    Like on so many things, Obama parses. He lies. And now he is trying to explain away the 50,000 troops that he is leaving in Iraq as advisors. Kiplinger understands this: "the 50,000 troops who will remain after Aug. 31 will be advisors in name only. In practice, they’ll be a strong enough force for combat if called to do so." Obama misled America during the elections. And now he is parsing words the way a lawyer does. He cannot be trusted.

    Following comments from Senate Democrats expressing willingness to extend Bush tax cuts, the White House dispatched Tim Geithner to kill the buzz. Tim just announced Obama's plans to let the tax cuts expire for wealthy Americans in January, according to WSJ. Which is what people expected all along. WSJ: Mr. Geithner said there is "still some uncertainty about how strong the recovery is going to be," which may be impacting spending decisions by businesses and individuals. But he discounted that as a reason to extend the Bush-era tax cuts for top earners, saying most private forecasts show moderate economic growth...

    There are consequential, disturbing revelations to be found when flipping through the visitors list at the White House. Bill Ayers is there no less than three times, Louis Farrakhan at least once, but there is also a separate visit for his family, and the infamous hater Jeremiah Wright is there at least five times (four times under Jeremy, one under Jeremiah). Contemptuously, Farrakhan’s visit is tagged as “MEETING WITH SCIENCE CLUB MEMBERS”…Al Sharpton is there twice, and Jesse "hymietown" Jackson is a regular (six times). It bears noting that despite solid evidence that Obama was tight with these haters, inciters...

    The Examiner ^ | 12/23/2009 | Terry Hurlbut
    The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said today that the assumptions of healthcare-reform proponents, including Democrats in the Senate, that the bill would produce significant cost savings to Medicare are flawed and involve double-counting, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said today. As reported by, Sessions asked for a fresh analysis from the CBO of how much money the Medicare Hospital Insurance (HI) Trust Fund would save under the Senate bill, as amended early Monday morning by the "manager's amendment." The CBO letter suggests that the projected savings to Medicare are largely illusory, especially if Congress plans to both continue to finance...
