    Wednesday on the "Tom Joyner Morning Show," Al Sharpton offered a curious explanation involving President Barack Obama for the meaning of Easter: "I think that the message is, no matter what the world may do to unfairly, no matter how your crucified, nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job that you can rise if you don't lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges. The story of Jesus on the cross. no matter what they humiliated him with. no matter how they mocked him he took it, because he knew he...
  • First Lady To Obamacare Counselors: ‘You Are Doing God’s Work’

    Miami-With just weeks left to sign up for health care under the Affordable Care Act, Michelle Obama zeroed in on recruiting the crucial young adult demographic during a visit to a Miami community health center Wednesday. The first lady congratulated a handful of residents who had just enrolled during an intimate event, asking one woman whether she had gotten her son to enroll. “Tell him he could get hit by a car. It’s crazy. They don’t think about that kind of stuff,” said Obama, who moments later applauded another mother for signing herself and adult son up for insurance plans....

    No sooner did President Barack Obama and a group of senators separately outline proposals to revamp the nation’s immigration system than the phone lines on several African-American-oriented talk radio shows heated up with callers blasting the plans. “Amnesty,” complained Frankie from Maryland recently on the nationally syndicated “Keeping it Real with Al Sharpton.” A political payback to Hispanic voters that does little or nothing for African-Americans, reasoned Sam from Milwaukee on Wisconsin’s 1290 WMCS AM’s “Earl Ingram Show.” SNIP Still, Ingram says many of his listeners see Obama’s attempt to push forward on immigration as a reminder of what the...

    At this point it seems like Barack Obama’s worshipers will cheer at anything he says. Imagine him speaking at one of his daily campaign rallies and saying the following. “What we need now is to take a good long look at slavery. We know many folks don’t want a job but that bums the rest of us out. When we bring back slavery everybody will be accounted for. Everybody will have a job and be secure in the knowledge that they are contributing to the greater good of the state. Our slaves would be well feed; have great healthcare and...

    Commentary Magazine ^ | November 11, 2012 | Abe Greenwald
    Barack Obama ushered in America’s first large-scale experiment in personality-cult politics. The experiment continues apace. Obama got reelected because he enjoys a degree of personal popularity disconnected from his record. No modern president has ever been returned to office with employment figures and right-rack-wrong-track numbers as poor as those Obama has achieved. Obama couldn’t run on his record, which proved to be no problem—Americans didn’t vote on his record. According to exit polls, 77 percent of voters said the economy is bad and only 25 percent said they’re better off than they were four years ago. But since six in...

    National Review Online ^ | September 18, 2012 | Charles R. Kesler
    More than any Democratic president since Franklin Roosevelt, Barack Obama in his writings and speeches has worked out an impressive interpretation of American history that culminates in modern liberalism. It also culminates, not incidentally, in him. As a writer, Obama’s strength is telling tales, and his story of America mixes together social, intellectual, and political history. It begins and keeps contending with the Founding– with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. He tries to tell a new story about the country that acknowledges, and then contextualizes, traditional views in ways that are meant to be reassuring but that point...

    Rain concerns forcing the Democrats to move President Obama's convention speech to a smaller venue Thursday night won't dampen spirits or dilute the president's message, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday. The Democratic leader said the weather is "a higher power" that the president can't control. "It's rain, what can we do?" Pelosi said at a breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor. "There are some decisions that are made from a different place and whether it rains or not is not in the president's control."

    An Obama classmate from Columbia University called him out this week for stirring up a bogus smear campaign against Romney over his taxes, insisting that Obama's motive is not only to distract voters from the worst economic recovery in post-WWII history, but also to avoid a far more scandalous and devastating skeleton Obama has hiding in his own closet...buried deep inside those college records he still refuses to unseal (and has paid millions to keep under lock and key).

    Obama jumps the shark with student loan jam President Obama's 'celebrity status' reached perplexing new levels last night on comedian Jimmy Fallon's comedy show last night. After watching this sketch, I think it's fair to say that he has 'jumped the shark.' Last night on the Jimmy Fallon show, Obama "slow jammed" with Jimmy Fallon and his band about his plan to freeze interest rates for student loans, criticizing filibustering Republicans for blocking his plan. Warning that the interest rates for student loans will 'double,' Obama warned that "some hard working students would be paying about $1000 extra just to...

    There are few films that stir the heart and soul more than the 1962 classic To Kill A Mockingbird. To commemorate the Oscar-winning film’s 50th anniversary, President Barack Obama will introduce a special broadcast of a restored and digitally remastered print of the film on USA at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Saturday, April 7. Starring Gregory Peck as the heroically decent Alabama lawyer Atticus Finch, and based on the Pulitzer-Prize winning novel by Harper Lee, the film will air with limited commercial interruption. In a rare public statement, Lee said she was “deeply honored” that President Obama would be participating...

Jesus Christ is God! Jesus Christ is God! Jesus Christ is the son of God!" the man continued. "You're the antichrist!" the man said. The crowd responded with an enthusiastic cheer of "four more years" afterward. "First of all, I agree Jesus Christ is the Lord. I believe in that," Obama said to tepid applause.

    Obama promoted his jobs bill in North Carolina on Wednesday, the third stop on what White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called a "campaign" for jobs. Not for the first time, Obama called back to an audience member's shouted, "I love you" with "I love you back." On Wednesday he added, "But if you love me you've got to help me pass this bill." The Obama administration isn't holding back in its full court campaign to pass the American Jobs Act. The WhiteHouse.gov website now includes a banner that links to the bill.

    Presidencies can go through various stages in terms of their effect on the opposition – from eliciting respect and some amount of fear, to provoking anger, to becoming the object of ridicule. Barack Obama has reached the third stage.Dana Milbank of the Washington Post has written a column in which he cites passages from Obama's speech to a joint session of Congress last night and then chronicles the reaction among congressional Republicans, which included chuckles, guffaws and giggles. Hostility to Obama has given way to indifference to what he says; witness the fact the GOP did not even feel the need...
