    When 10-year-old Charlotte Bell was invited to the White House’s annual “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” she made sure not to let an opportunity to help her dad pass her by. During a question-and-answer session with Michelle Obama, Charlotte wasn’t interested in asking about the first lady’s favorite book or favorite sport — she was there to get her daddy a job. “My dad’s been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his resume,” said Charlotte, handing Mrs. Obama a copy. “Oh my goodness,” the first lady said, hugging the little...
  • Obama's vow against automatic cuts surprises Washington

    Yahoo! News ^ | 10/23/12 | David Lawder | Reuters
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama caught Capitol Hill by surprise with his comment that automatic spending cuts looming in January "will not happen," kindling hope among Democrats but doubt among Republicans that he has a viable plan to replace them. In Monday night's debate against Republican Mitt Romney Obama did not say whether he had a specific plan in mind to avoid the $109 billion in cuts due to start on January 2, or if he was merely hopeful Congress would act. The across-the-board reductions, known as a sequester, are to be divided equally between defense and non-defense programs....

    President Barack Obama can’t stand to be without his “Entourage.” Call it a guilty pleasure, or maybe it just rings familiar to him. The HBO series about an aspiring actor features a fast-talking agent named Ari, based on the real-life brother of Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. For less R-rated fare, he tunes into “Hannah Montana” or “SpongeBob SquarePants” in the White House with his daughters. Aides said he would have watched Monday night’s NCAA championship on TiVo on his way home from Iraq Tuesday night. Jon Stewart’s smackdown of CNBC’s Jim Cramer? Obama was eager to see it....
  • Stunning Liberal Hypocrisy on White House Press Access

    Fair-minded conservatives were aghast in President George W. Bush's second term when the left-wing character assassination machine went into high gear to destroy Jeff Gannon. Gannon, also known as James Dale Guckert, asked questions that annoyed liberals because they were based on a right-wing political perspective. Liberals were outraged. How dare the White House allow a conservative in who didn't constantly bash President Bush. The nerve! Partisan, ideologically-driven people shouldn't be allowed into White House press briefings, they howled in unison. [...] Now comes the revelation that at least one partisan ideologically-driven leftist is being welcomed to White House media...

    Left-Brain/Wright-Brain by JohnHuang2 The more I hear Jeremiah Wright speak the more I think Hillary should give him a raise! Jeremiah set out to prove he’s not a total racist nutjob and did a good job of proving he’s a total racist nutjob. First he had to tackle an interview with Bill Moyers, who took the gloves off with questions like, “When did you hear the call to ministry, how did it come?” and “What did you think when you began to see those VERY BRIEF sound bites circulating as they did?” Moyers then went for the kill! “What...

    Dems to Petraeus: Can we still surrender? by JohnHuang2 Democrats are desperate to hand Iraq over to al-Qaeda and Iran — change we can believe in! Nut Pelosi and Harry Reid have tried over 50 times to force Bush to lose the war for them, and failed. So desperate are libbies, they’re now busy concocting imaginary victories for the enemy out of whole cloth, just as they did during Viet Nam. Approximately 10 minutes after the crackdown on Shia militias began, the press proclaimed the crackdown had failed. Yet, if the goal of the mighty “Mahdi Army” was to...

    Warning: PhotoGRAPHIC! by JohnHuang2 I thought Hillary would be easier than Obama to beat, then along came The Photo, which was clearly doctored — the suicide belt was removed! It shows Obama decked out in Muslim garb during his ‘06 trip to Kenya to interfere in Kenya’s politics. Whip out a red-states/blue-states ‘04 election map and see how many red states flip to blue because Obama looks cool in a Muslim get-up. In the past, Democrats got blown away with lesser stuff — Muskie crying in the rain, Gary Hart on the Monkey Business, Dukakis in a helmet, riding...

    I quote, you decide 2 by JohnHuang2 Despite the fact that the surge is working, Democrats still see stunning progress being made by al-Qaeda in Iraq! That’s when they’re not too busy denying there’s an al-Qaeda in Iraq. Democrats are so deep in denial, telling each other over and over that the surge has failed and our troops are on the run, the deniers even resorted to having their weekly radio address delivered by former Army Lt. Gen. Richardo Sanchez, the new pin-up who was fired for incompetence in Iraq. Ricky Richardo was top commander in Iraq from June...

    Libbies, how’s that MoveOn.org ad working? by JohnHuang2 First, liberals tried complaining hysterically that the ‘surge is not working’, and once they figured out what month they were in (January) and that the surge hadn’t started, they tried passing non-binding resolutions and failed, so then they tried imposing deadlines for withdrawal and failed, so then they tried imposing absurd new requirements on the military and failed. Democrat nut groups then spent $12 million this summer trying to peel Republicans away from Bush on Iraq, and failed. Bush is such a lame duck. Even Osama is upset at Democrats for...

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 17, 2007 – Thousands of servicemembers get care packages with surprises in them every day, thanks to caring folks back home. Some of the surprises, however, are bigger than others. Army Spc. Alfonso Sanchez, of 16th Military Police Brigade, thanks Army Maj. Kristian Sorensen, the brigade’s civil affairs officer, July 24 for sending the names of the unit’s soldiers to Operation Gratitude, a troop support group.
