    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: And now I'm in a controversy with Romney. Newsweek magazine, Tina Brown's magazine, now owned Barry Diller. Newsweek: "The Wimp Factor -- Is Romney just too insecure to be president?" There's the Newsweek cover. I want to take you back, October 1987, Newsweek, same magazine, "George H. W. Bush: Fighting the Wimp Factor." They're just recycling. Tina Brown is simply recycling a 1987 cover, George Bush running for president the first time taking over for Ronaldus Magnus, fighting the wimp factor, and now here Romney, Romney, the wimp factor.

    The left continues to pile on Mitt Romney for allegedly outsourcing jobs while at Bain Capital. Yet the mainstream media seem curiously uninterested in reporting on “outsourcing” by the Obama Administration, which has (1) outsourced stimulus monies to create jobs in foreign nations, (2) outsourced U.S. foreign policy to U.N. and (3) outsourced our kids and grandkids financial future to pay for his unprecedented spending binge. The Obama Stimulus has turned out to be an exercise in Venture Socialism . Unlike Venture Capitalism, in which investors risk their own capital to help companies launch and grown, Venture Socialism is when...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/14/2012 | Karin McQuillan
    President Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden three times before saying yes, because he got cold feet about the possible political harm to himself if the mission failed. Instead of listening to advisors from the U.S. military, Defense, or even State, Obama was acting on the advice of White House politico and close friend Valerie Jarrett. Valerie Jarrett? This account comes from Richard Miniter's upcoming book Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors who Decide for Him. Miniter has written a half-dozen books on the war on terror. He is relying on an unnamed source...

    Last week the Middle East continued an inexorable march toward a holocaust involving nuclear weapons (that Iran doesn’t have) and weapons of mass destruction (that Saddam Husain didn’t have and didn’t move to Syria). Also last week, the US economy continued to grind to a slow halt as we continued to double down on our Faustian bargain with European socialism (with money that we don’t have). Businesses continued to shutter their doors at “unprecedented” rates, unemployment continued unabated, already anemic GDP “growth” slowed to a near halt, and the forecast for the annual budget deficit hit $1.2 trillion – which...

    A group of former special forces and intel operatives, including Navy SEALs, are speaking out against President Obama's loose lips when it comes to top secret national security details and his bragging about killing Osama bin Laden. The Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund plans to launch an ad blitz slamming Obama for his behavior and attitude toward national security. Dishonorable Disclosures "It is my civic duty to tell the president to stop leaking national security secret to the enemy," former Navy SEAL Benjamin Smith says in the ad.

    The White House is spinning the US role in Nato's support for Libyan rebels a foreign policy triumph. That hardly stacks up In case you weren't paying attention, the downfall of Muammar Gaddafi has been claimed by the White House as a vindication of President Barack Obama's decision to "lead from behind". Almost as soon as the rebels reached Tripoli, the administration's deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, Ben Rhodes, began spinning the media that Obama's light footprint approach to regime change was infinitely superior to the Bush approach. Administration officials fell over themselves to point out that the...

    Coach is Right ^ | January 7th, 2012 | Jim Emerson
    At the Pentagon this week the liberals’ biggest fantasy has now become reality. Barack Obama is cutting the military budget and using the “savings” to fund social programs. In a rare press conference in the Pentagon, he called for a major reduction of the U.S. Armed forces over the next ten years. Obama’s strategy is to reduce America’s presence in Europe and redirect our Strategic forces towards the Middle East and Asia, leaving the defense of Europe in the hands of NATO. Obama’s plan shifts strategic force to the Asia-Pacific region to counter China’s growing military threat. The movement of...

In Leading from Behind, New York Times bestselling investigative journalist Richard Miniter presents the first book to explore President Obama’s abilities as a leader, by unearthing new details of his biggest successes and failures. Based on exclusive interviews and never-before-published material, Leading from Behind investigates the secret world of the West Wing and the combative personalities that shape historic events. Contrary to the White House narrative, which aims to define Obama as a visionary leader, Leading from Behind reveals a president who is indecisive,...

    Leadership: Last Friday, at the end of his press conference on the debt, President Obama said: "I think if you want to be a leader, then you got to lead." Too bad Obama isn't taking his own advice. It's possible that Obama thinks talking about an issue is the same as leading on it. After all, in July alone, the president has held three press conferences and a town hall, delivered three press briefings, a radio address and a prime-time speech — all devoted to the debt ceiling negotiations. But in the real world, leadership means standing in front of...

    Washington Post ^ | April 28 | Charles Krauthammer
    To be precise, leading from behind is a style, not a doctrine. Doctrines involve ideas, but since there are no discernible ones that make sense of Obama foreign policy — Lizza’s painstaking two-year chronicle shows it to be as ad hoc, erratic and confused as it appears — this will have to do.................. Leading from behind is not leading. It is abdicating. It is also an oxymoron. Yet a sympathetic journalist, channeling an Obama adviser, elevates it to a doctrine. The president is no doubt flattered. The rest of us are merely stunned.

Since President Barack Obama seems comfortable killing terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan with Predator drone strikes, why not in Libya? So far, establishing a no-fly zone is the only air power option on the table... The Turkish prime minister has said he would oppose such a move. A no-fly zone also creates political problems for Obama. He came to power promising to end two wars, not to start a new one. "Let's just call a spade a spade," Defense Secretary...

Movements of key CIA station personnel in Baghdad—along with most State department diplomats and teams building police stations and schools—have been frozen for the second day in a row, according to a State department source who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Essentially, the CIA, State department and government contractors are stuck inside the International Zone, also known as “the Green Zone,” in Central Baghdad....

The arrests were front page news in Europe, but not in the U.S. America may just have dodged a major bullet.

The three men described July terror attacks in London and Egypt, which killed over 140 people and injured hundreds more, as "highdays and holidays." They...

    RIGHTALK.COM Richard Miniter broke a bombshell this week regarding our ambassador to Pakistan, Nancy Powell. Yes, Powell began her State Department career under . . . . . . . . Jimmy Carter. It was recently learned that Powell blew it big time in the hunt for Osama bin Laden by failing to distribute materials offering a 25 million dollar reward for bin Laden and rewards for his associates. Richard and I will discuss Ms. Powell's incredible failure on Wednesday's show in the first segment. Then, music fans are in for a big treat. FReeper uncleshag and I will...

    A lone U.S. ambassador compromised America's hunt for Osama bin Laden in Pakistan for more than two years, The New York Sun has learned. Ambassador Nancy Powell, America's representative in Pakistan, refused to allow the distribution in Pakistan of wanted posters, matchbooks, and other items advertising America's $25 million reward for information leading to the capture of Mr. bin Laden and other Al Qaeda leaders.Instead, thousands of matchbooks, posters, and other material - printed at taxpayer expense and translated into Urdu, Pashto, and other local languages - remained "impounded" on American Embassy grounds from 2002 to 2004, according to Rep....

Miniter broke a huge story this week about our ambassador to Pakistan, a female Carter appointee, who failed to aggressively publicize the $25 million bounty on Osama bin Laden.

    As I mentioned earlier, late yesterday afternoon my wireless internet at CPAC went dead, so I was unable to post updates, but I did get to do my interview with Richard Miniter, author of "Shadow War." He was on a panel called "Protecting the Homeland Against Enemies, Foreign and Domestic" with Don Feder, of the US-India League, and Former CIA Counterterorrism Specialist Phil Giraldi—which I unfortunately missed. Afterwards he had his book signing... which he was fashionably late for. However, I got myself in line early, had him sign my book, and told him he could come over to Blogger's...

    Every day it seems another American soldier is killed in Iraq. These grim statistics have become a favorite of network news anchors and political chat show hosts. Nevermind that they mix deaths from accidents with actual battlefield casualties; or that the average is actually closer to one American death for every two days; or that enemy deaths far outnumber ours. What matters is the overall impression of mounting, pointless deaths. That is why is important to remember why we fight in Iraq -- and who we fight. Indeed, many of those sniping at U.S. troops are al Qaeda terrorists operating...

    Per Heartland with John Kasich....on foxnews. Mansoor says that the idea that Osama Bin Laden is in Waziristan was propaganda by the liberal media. He also believes that now that the US election is over..there will be much less pressure on the Pakistani President to try and find Bin laden. "Bin laden has been able to move this ease," said Mansoor. Kasich: This guy's making video's and we can't find the guy? Can you imagine putting a nuclear weapon next to a guy named Bin Laden? Mansoor: The real nexus of terror is that the Iranians have taken a strategic...

    Osama Bin Laden fled Afghanistan following the battle of Tora Bora in December 2001. He briefly retreated into the Pakistan-controlled portion of Kashmir in January 2002. By June 2002, bin Laden had reportedly moved south into Baluchistan, a mountainous, autonomous tribal region in western Pakistan. It was a sensible place for him to hide. The Baluch are a nation without a country; their ancestral homeland straddles Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran. It is likely that his confederates have family and friends among the Baluch. A number of high-ranking al Qaeda operatives are ethnic Baluch, including Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the...
