  • Obama Quips That New Low Unemployment Number Is 'Inconvenient' For Republican Candidates

    "Americans are working," President Obama proudly declared at a White House press conference Friday morning. He was referring to the new jobs report that revealed unemployment has dropped to 4.9 percent - the first time it's fallen below 5 percent in 8 years. The president also remarked on how his administration has added 14 million new jobs over his tenure and that over the past 6 months wages have risen at an impressive rate. He couldn't help pointing to falling gas prices as well. After gleefully sharing these new numbers, Obama quipped that the supposedly successful economy is "inconvenient" for...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There were a lot of roads last night, some damn fine roads that Romney drove over to get to that debate last night, ladies and gentlemen. Romney drove a bunch of smart roads, well prepared roads, experienced roads, roads built on hard facts. But Obama, Obama's road had too many bumps, unemployment over 8%, and, by the way, did you like the way Romney just took it right to him? Obama tried to get away with acting like he hadn't been in office for four years and Romney didn't let him get away with it. (paraphrasing) "Eight...

    Well, that didn't take long. About 12 hours after last night's debate wrapped up the RNC went live with an online video attacking what it's calling President Obama's debate "smirk." Here was the blast that went out to reporters (via the Washington Examiner): "Good morning, we're out with a new video 'Smirk' highlighting the president's debate performance where he was visibly uncomfortable as he struggled to give Americans answers on how he'll turn our country around with another four years.
  • Uh-oh: Jon Stewart catches Fox News’ creative editing

    Had CNN spliced footage of a sparsely-attended Capitol Hill rally to discredit the reports of large numbers of attendees to the 9/12 rally in September, conservatives would have rightly howled about media bias. What will conservatives say about Fox News splicing footage of the 9/12 rally into coverage of Michele Bachmann’s otherwise well-attended rally last week? Jon Stewart gives Fox News a well-deserved poke in the eye for fudging the footage, as well as exposing rather clearly its source:

    ( - In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd in Wilkes Barre, Pa., on Wednesday, President Bush suggested that after hearing what Sen. John Kerry had to say at last week's debate, it's no wonder the cameras captured him making faces. Democrats played up Bush's smirks and scowls the day after the debate, even releasing a 51-second video of Bush grimacing in reaction to Kerry's words. On Wednesday, running down a list of what Kerry has said in recent days, Bush noted that the senator has "come down firmly on every side of the Iraq War." Said Bush: "He...

    WASHINGTON: George W Bush must get rid of the grimaces and smirks, John Kerry is still struggling to put on a natural smile, experts said after the first presidential debate. Communications experts said on Friday both contenders must work on their body language ahead of the two remaining presidential debates and the November 2 election. According to Patti Wood, an Atlanta-based body language consultant, Bush had an assured first 30 minutes at the crucial first debate. "But he seemed to run out of planned stuff to say and I think he became emotional," added Wood, who has advised the US...

    NEW YORK — CNN rented an elegant ballroom a few weeks ago, feeding breakfast to top advertisers and filling them in on 2004 election coverage plans. Virtually all the network's big names were there. Except Aaron Brown, whose star appears to be fading in the CNN firmament.Larry King was master of ceremonies. Christiane Amanpour appeared via satellite from London. All four "Crossfire" combatants argued politics. Judy Woodruff, who had flown from a California assignment a few days earlier, boarded a 5 a.m. train from Washington to New York for scrambled eggs and small talk.CNN's chief executive, Jim Walton, cautioned against...
  • WANTED: Clinton Smirk

    Does anyone remember a book circulated during the 1992 Presidential election that really tore apart Clinton? It might have been after the actual election, I'm not sure. What I remember of it was that it was a very thin paperback sent out free. I think the author was Floyd Abrams and the title was "Boy President," but I could be wrong on both counts. What I most remember about it is the cover photo of Clinton. He has the most phenomenal smirk on his face. What I am looking for is a scan of that cover, particularly that horrid smirk....
