    FRANKLIN LAKES — The way Tom Murro tells it, a chance encounter with President Obama on a Martha's Vineyard golf course last summer had a transformative effect on him. Among Tom Murro's high-profile run-ins: President Obama, Natalie Portman, Dustin Hoffman and Kathie Lee Gifford. Suddenly, the Franklin Lakes father of two became the "Celebrity Magnet," known for an uncanny ability to attract, rub elbows and be photographed with some of the world's most famous people. Last April, Murro folded the mortgage company he had run for two decades and took to chronicling his exploits and conquests online at celebritymagnet.com. "Some...

    President Obama has cast his role in the civil-rights movement as part of the “Joshua Generation” – those who were tapped to lead the movement after their elders journeyed to the Promised Land. On ABC/Washington Post’s “Top Line” today, we asked Andrew Young -- a legendary civil rights leader who was a close aide to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. -- how that analogy holds up a year and a half into the Obama presidency. “If you'll remember your Bible, when Joshua and Caleb crossed into the Promised Land, it was not easy,” said Young, a former UN ambassador,...

    The results of a new poll of Republican views posted on Daily Kos today are creating quite a stir. As they should—the results are astonishing. The poll found that 63 percent of Republicans think President Obama is a socialist; 36 percent don't think Obama was born in the United States; 31% think that he is a racist who hates white people (yikes!); and 39 percent think he should be impeached, among other things. (They also have worrying views on sex education, gays, and contraception.) Taken without question, it's a pretty damaging portrait of the prevailing views in the GOP. They...

It shows them worshiping in Obama's name. Brietbart I guess had an audio expert analyze the video and the expert claims that they are saying Obama, not God. Like I said there are two videos, the second one has the analysis included in a statement on the video. I guess the Gamaliel Foundation filed a complaint with the producers of the video.

At a time of tension between their organizations, White House senior adviser David Axelrod met with Fox News chairman and chief executive officer Roger Ailes two weeks ago, sources tell POLITICO. The two met privately in Manhattan during the president’s visit to the United Nations. The two discussed news coverage and the relationship between the organizations. An FNC spokesperson tells POLITICO that Ailes and Axelrod had a “cordial conversation” over coffee while the president...

The video shows more than a dozen youngsters at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington Township. The district said the students were participating in Black History Month in February.

    No word on where or when this was shot but it was posted to YouTube just two days before The One’s speech to students, which makes me wonder if it was part of some school’s festivities for the screening. I think parents’ fears about their kids being politically indoctrinated are usually overblown, but I’m open to persuasion by compelling evidence — like, for example, this, or the vid you’re about to see. Getting little kids to croon about how awesome the president is troubles me less than the pop quiz the boss posted, mainly because they’re too young to understand...

    Obama was “appointed by God”, we are instructed by a man boasting academic credentials. Writing in the Orlando Sentinel, Jeremy Levitt, “associate dean for International Programs and a distinguished professor of international law at Florida A&M University College of Law in Orlando,” makes this case at the conclusion of a rambling attack on critics of ObamaCare and the right in general: I would remind the far right what the Apostle Paul wrote, " ... there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God." Hence, Obama is the U.S. president and leader of the...

None of Juandiego Wade’s colleagues was quick to jump on board with his proposal at Thursday’s meeting, nor did any members dismiss it. Wade insisted that if the proposal were approved, he’d raise the money for the pictures and frames — which he believes can be obtained for free or very little money — through a private fundraising campaign. “It would be no cost to the school...

    Artist Shepard Fairey, whose iconic HOPE campaign poster of Barack Obama was a global sensation, is back with a new image that both questions and deifies the President. Appearing on the cover of the Aug. 20 Rolling Stone, the portrait depicts Obama with a brow knit in determination, surrounded by a halo of stars. "Will he take bold action or compromise too easily?" asks a headline enshrining the President's head. Fairey said it wasn't meant to be a halo. Rather, the picture he worked from showed Obama standing in front of the presidential seal, he said. "It's one thing to...

    If Barack Obama disappoints his supporters, they will have only themselves to blame.

He was not alone in taking an expansive view of presidential responsibilities. With the exception of Ron Paul, all the serious candidates waxed grandiloquent about their aims. John McCain said he modelled himself on Teddy Roosevelt, a man who “nourished the soul of a great nation”. Hillary Clinton lamented that America had no goals, and offered to supply some.

    . In 1798, during the Quasi-war with France, Congress, with President John Adams’s support, passed the Sedition Act. Outraged by attacks on her husband, Abigail Adams supported the act, which was opposed by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, among others. “Let us not establish a tyranny,” wrote an alarmed Alexander Hamilton to an ally in Congress. Indeed, the Sedition Act, an obvious violation of the First Amendment, made a permanent blot on Adams’s presidency. Here is part of its text: “If any person shall write, print, utter or publish, or shall cause or procure to be written, printed, uttered or...

First, there was South Carolina GOP activist Rusty DePass, who said that an escaped gorilla from a zoo was an ancestor to First Lady Michelle Obama. Now an aide to Republican State Senator Diane Black mistakenly sent an e-mail with a picture of all the U.S. presidents. Of course, President Obama’s “picture” was a black background with only two white eyes.

    Even as congressional Democrats feuded last week with the CIA in what at times seemed to be a throwback to the 1970s, President Obama was headed in the other direction in what may have been his most active week yet as commander in chief. He pushed through the House a spending bill to finance the war in Afghanistan and reversed himself, deciding to fight the release of photos purportedly showing humiliating treatment of detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan. Mr. Obama also announced he would have some detainees at the U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, tried by military commissions, putting...

    He was a freshman in high school - maybe 14 years old, maybe 15. Every year, there was a parade through Lexington, Va., which, besides serving as the childhood stomping grounds for one Charlie Manuel, housed Washington and Lee Law School and Virginia Military Institute. The way the Phillies manager tells it, he was attending that parade when a convertible in the procession rolled to a stop near where he was standing. Perched on the back of the car were dignitaries. One was Miss America. The other was Harry S Truman. Truman saw Manuel standing along the parade route and...

    For years, Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania has been excoriated by the GOP for his “unprincipled,” pragmatic decision making. Yet, like President Barack Obama, Specter has always been more attentive to the needs of those who sent him to Washington than to demands that he toe the party line. It’s no surprise that the GOP now says Specter switched to the Democrats just to save his own skin. But it would stand Darwin on his head were senators unmindful of their political survival. No, the real question relates to the GOP’s survival. A party whose domestic policy consists of setting...

    (CNN) — House Minority Whip Eric Cantor tells CNN's John King that the GOP still has a lot to learn from President Obama. "President Obama is a great communicator. We understand that," he said in an interview that aired on CNN's State of the Union Sunday. "He's also been very adept at adopting the technology of today to access the youth vote and the younger population of this country. That's the future, and I believe we've got a lot to learn. The Republican Party can't keep doing things the way it always has in terms of technology." Cantor, along with...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Wednesday hailed Arlen Specter's conversion to the Democratic Party, while Specter vowed that he'll be an asset as Obama tries to get his ambitious agenda through Congress.

Specter noted that he and longtime friend Biden "have talked over every problem under the sun and the moon." With a beaming Obama standing at his side, Specter said: "I think that I can be of assistance to you, Mr. President....
