Dear Diary: Barack Obama Will Get Us All Killed

Update: Quotes of the Day: Simply put, the White House is prioritizing the president’s reelection effort.:



Accountability? “I think that, you know, as president I bear responsibility for everything, to some degree,” he said on CBS’ “60 Minutes.”

Nauseating – Obama on The View: “I’ve been told I’m just eye candy here.

——————————————————————————————

We’re still waiting for an ad from Mitt Romney’s campaign with the message: “Barack Obama will get us all killed.” Mitt Romney will have to get the message out because Big Media is all out in protection of Barack Obama:

“JOHN DICKERSON: Governor Romney jumped in the middle of the violence in the Middle East and he broke a little bit of a tradition by inserting himself. They [sic] he disappeared on the issue. We’ve since learned that this administration first thought this uprising in Libya was just a kind of– something that bubbled up from the ground. Well, now they are calling it a terrorist attack. What went wrong there? What did you get wrong in the first place? Why weren’t you securing the embassy the way you should have been? These are points that a Republican could make that Mitt Romney need to make because he knows the press isn’t necessarily going to make that case for him. He can’t make it because he was the one who jumped in and said hey this is a very serious issue. But instead he hasn’t really come back to it.”

Mitt Romney should “come back to it” and start now laying out the groundwork for the last presidential debate, which will be about foreign policy, and which takes place in the must win state of Florida. What better place than Florida on October 22 for Romney to say again, after a month of ads stating such, “Barack Obama Will Get Us All Killed“?

Romney at Boca needs to declare the sacking of the Benghazi consulate “a catastrophic intelligence loss” and on October 22 inform Florida voters of the consequences of Barack Obama “leadership”. The Libya station provided critical information to intelligence services and now it is gone. Gone too is the “bump in the road” American ambassador.

Romney should be sure to provide the viewers of the October 22 debate today’s little noticed news concerning Ahmadinejad’s appearance at the United Nations (Ahmadinejad’s big speech will come later this week) and ask the question prompted by the video: Israeli delegation walks out of Ahmadinejad’s UN speech — but the U.S. doesn’t?:



Shouldn’t the United States walk out every time this creep gets up to speak?

Romney should at the October debate remind the voters of Boca Raton, Florida, and the entire nation that there was a time when Israel was America’s #1 ally in the Middle East. No longer. Barack Obama on the 60 Minutes TV show last night proclaimed Israel is now merely “one of ” our allies – not our closest ally in the Middle East.

If Israel is merely “one of” our allies it begs the question “Who are the other closest American allies in the Middle East?” Recently Obama declared that Egypt is not an American ally. So who are these secret allies Obama praises? Romney might want to ask Obama on October 22. Romney might also demand that those “American Jews” who are protecting Barack Obama explain themselves and thereby expose themselves as allied to Barack Obama, not Israel – America’s #1 friend and #1 ally in the Middle East.

Tomorrow Barack Obama will go to the United Nations General Assembly with the stated intention of speaking about the latest catastrophes in the Middle East. It will be a cascade of flowery words. The message however was delivered today.

Today Obama appeared on the TV show “The View” and the White House announced that Barack was too busy to meet with any world leaders while in New York. Barack is too busy appearing on talk shows to meet with world leaders – that’s the message. Maybe Mitt might bookmark today’s calendar for use on October 22.

    Romney Attacking Obama On His Recent Gaffes The Media Doesn’t Report
    —Ace

    Only way to get the media to report them is to carry the story yourself.

    This is why I laughed so hard when Joe Scarborough, a “real conservative” on MSNBC, claimed the media would have covered the foreign policy disaster of our butchered embassy workers if only Mitt Romney had not issued a press release.

    Romney is attacking Obama for “jumping the gun” on claiming the embassy attack was “spontaneous” and “not a planned terrorist attack” and “caused by a YouTube video” — mimicking Obama’s “shoot first, aim later” quip — and also for calling the four murders he could have prevented “bumps in the road.”

    Obama also claims Iran’s threat to attack Israel is just “noise.”

    What is the White House response?

    “His indication that developments in the Middle East represent bumps in the road is a very different view than I have,” the Republican candidate told ABC News. “I can’t imagine saying something like the assassination of ambassadors is a bump in the road.”

    Romney gave a similar comment to NBC News. “There are extraordinary events going on in the Middle East and considering those events, either one of them or all of them collectively, as bumps in the road shows a person who has a very different perspective about world affairs [than] the perspective I have,” he said.

    Shortly after the interviews, while speaking to a crowd in Pueblo, Colo., Romney declared, “These are not bumps in the road, these are human lives.”

    Well, to call Romney’s statements “desperate and offensive,” and claim Obama was talking about something else. Context, you see.

    Gee, the great Orator sure needs a lot of clean-up on his remarks.

    This doesn’t work. When Obama is talking about the recent problematic phase in the Arab Spring — as Jay Carney insists he was — he is also talking, unavoidably, about the primary problem as it affects Americans, to wit, the murders of four Americans.

    In other words, once again, the “context” is just that he’s saying exactly what Romney says he was saying, but they want to claim the “context” transforms it into something completely different.

    You Know Who Agrees The Media Will Not Ask Questions About Libya? A CBS Political Director. Romney had better push the story himself, this political director says, because the “press will not make that case for him.”

    US Delegation Remains Seated For Ahmadinejad’s Eliminationist Rhetoric, While Only Israeli Lobby Walks Out;

    Obama To Condemn YouTube Video Yet Again In His Own Address
    —Ace

    The US delegation had no problem with Ahmadinejad’s vow to “eliminate” an apparently former ally.

    Jay Carney announces that Obama will once again denounce the YouTube video.

    Here’s a little bonus: The Pakistani Railway Minister vows he’ll pay $100,000 to anyone who kills the YouTube video maker.

    The White House’s response to this is… unsettling.

    Calling Pakistan Railway Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour’s offer as “inflammatory and inappropriate”, a State Department statement said, “There could be no justification for violence and it is important for responsible leaders to stand up and speak out against violence.”…
    The State Department said, “The (US) President and Secretary of State have both said the video at the core of this is offensive, disgusting, and reprehensible – but that is no justification for violence, and it is important for responsible leaders to stand up and speak out against violence.”

    Note whom the harshest pejoratives are reserved for.

    As Obama is claiming he denounces any insult to any religion, some asked him to denounce “Piss Christ,” which is once again appearing in NYC. He refused.

    Trouble In Paradise: Hillary Clinton State Department Aide In Email Squabble With Buzzfeed Staffer; Aide Ends Exchange With “F*** off” and “Have a Nice Life”
    —Ace

    I’ll just quote the best parts.

    Hey Philippe:
    A few quick questions for you. Why didn’t the State Department search the consulate and find AMB Steven’s diary first? What other potential valuable intelligence was left behind that could have been picked up by apparently anyone searching the grounds? Was any classified or top secret material also left? Do you still feel that there was adequate security at the compound, considering it was not only overrun but sensitive personal effects and possibly other intelligence remained out for anyone passing through to pick up? Your statement on CNN sounded pretty defensive–do you think it’s the media’s responsibility to help secure State Department assets overseas after they’ve been attacked?

    Let me know if you have a second.Michael

    Good morning Michael

    In terms of the media’s responsibility, I’ll start with the outlandish statement that I believe the media does have responsibilities. Your question seems to imply they have none and any expectation of responsible behavior is too much to ask. To be specific:I believe CNN had the responsibility to act as human beings and be sensitive to their loss when they first approached the family.

    I believe CNN had a responsibility to not make promises to the family it would not keep.

    If that’s too much to ask, I believe CNN had at the very least a responsibility to make their intentions on the use of Chris’s diary clear to the family from the outset.

    I believe CNN had a responsibility to not deceive its own viewers for more than 48 hours on the source of their reporting, using convoluted attribution they themselves had to clarify, before admitting it was the diary they were relying on.

    I believe that when they finally did admit to using Chris’s diary, they had a responsibility to their viewers and to the family to explain why they broke their pledge.

    I believe that many within CNN agree with everything I’m saying.

    Philippe:

    Thanks for getting back to me. No, you read my email correctly–I found your statement to CNN offensive.

    From my perspective, the scandal here is that the State Department had such inadequate security procedures in place that four Americans were killed. And then the Ambassador’s diary–and who knows what else–was left behind for anyone to pick up. Thankfully, it was CNN–and not Al Qaeda or some other militia–that found it and was able to return it to the family. That CNN used portions of the material in the diary they found at the scene–material that appears to contradict the official version of events that State/WH has been putting out–is completely in line with practices of good journalism.

    The misinformation here seems largely to be coming from State and the administration. The defense that the administration has offered that there was no intelligence warning of an attack is weak. If there was no intel, then clearly the CIA and other intel agents stationed in Benghazi weren’t doing their jobs well. If there was intel, then we have some kind of cover-up–whether out of incompetence or ass covering before the election or just the trauma of losing four good men, it’s hard for me to say at this point.


    All the best,

    
Michael

    I’ll take that as a non-denial denial.
    It appears the media understands this is a cover-up, but won’t report that. They just seem mad that Team Obama/Team Hillary isn’t letting them in on the secret.

    Very Unprofessional, Hillary needs to sort him out, if you are acting in a professional Govt capacity, you do not respond like this….EVER, especially if you know its going to print, very stupid. If you don’t like the questions ignore or leave a dead pan response.

    Moononpluto,

    Thanks for posting the BuzzFeed piece; and thanks to Gonzotx for quoting it at length.

    It almost reads like something from “The Onion”.

    That’s the best laugh I’ve had in awhile. I’m just sorry it doesn’t reflect well on Hillary.

    I especially like his final email where Michael Hastings replies to Phillip Reines, “I’ll take that as a non-denial denial.”

  6. This Phillip Reines outburst does not look good. Hillary’s state department will/has become a scapegoat for the WH. Why don’t they pose such tough questions to the WH? Obama is getting off easy here and Hillary is very subtly pushed under the bus. They are afraid to hurt her — you see still need all those Hillary Dem votes.

  7. “Very Unprofessional, Hillary needs to sort him out, if you are acting in a professional Govt capacity, you do not respond like this….EVER, especially if you know its going to print, very stupid. If you don’t like the questions ignore or leave a dead pan response.”

    [[ Just using his First Amendment right of Free Speech. Remember there’s no such thing as irresponsible speech. ]]

    —————

    “I’m just sorry it doesn’t reflect well on Hillary.”

    [[ These shots are getting closer and closer to Hillary. ]]

  8. As Obama is claiming he denounces any insult to any religion, some asked him to denounce [offensive art piece] which is once again appearing in NYC. He refused

    ======================

    The art piece does not claim to be a factual statement.

  9. It appears the media understands this is a cover-up, but won’t report that. They just seem mad that Team Obama/Team Hillary isn’t letting them in on the secret.
    ———————-
    Yup. It reminds me of the old Mafia soldier who told a friend of mine who had an operation trucking operation at JFK airport:

    Hey Mike . . you had any loads disappear? (No) Any truck hijacked? (No) Any of your drivers had their knees broken with a baseball bat? (No). Well some of your competitor who aren’t doing what is right are having those problem? (So what is your point? My point Mike is very simple: Here I am doing all this wor–k for you Mike and I ain’t getting no grease.

    That is the attitude of the press toward Obama.

  10. For your information, this Michael Hastings is a 32 year old lying deceptive wet behind the ears jurnolister bot parasite. He is the one who worked for Rolling Stone and sunk McCrystal by publishing his off the record comments. And here he does the same thing to Phil. Trust me these kinds of exchanges do occur frequently, but there is a gentlemen’s agreement that they do not get out, because it is damaging to all parties.

    Phillip Reines made a mistake in even engaging with him, i.e. never get into a pissing contest with a skunk. This little maggot is in the same league as pedarist Matthew Tabbi who hails from the same shop. And today, this little maggot works for the same outfit as the discredited maggot in chief Ben Smith. If I were God, I would do to them what General Patton promised to do to the krauts–grap them by the ears and kick them in the ass. That would be an excellent prescription for maggot Maher too, only he needs to be kicked in the balls.

    Nobody in government should engage with Hastings. No one. He will rat you out, whatever you tell him in confidence.

  11. correction: Patton said he would grab them by the NOSE (with Maggot Maher, how could you miss) and kick them in the balls.

  12. Rudy on Greta really going after Obama on Israel, Iran,
    Libya. Also,the disrepect of using term “bump in the
    road”. MSM ignoring all.

  13. Wbboei! good catch, I knew that name seemed familiar. He is a maggot, still Phillips should not have engaged him, Hastings isn’t a journalist, he’s just an attention clown looking for some firestorm story. Why Phillips even engaged him in email tag makes no sense. Why don’t these PR people keep track of the “reporting” history of people they engage emails in.
    (I forget the other idiot at rolling stone? tabbibi? I forget the name)

  14. Rudy did a great job going after BO. We need many, many more who are willing to hit him hard… otherwise known as telling the truth about BO and his administration.

  15. Hillary should give Philippe a slap on the wrist and send him to his room without any dessert. And no video games for a whole week. But that’s all.

  16. Is the lying lion of Rolling Stone Matt Tabbi a pedarist? Lets use his own logic. I have not personally observed Tabbi taking indecent liberties with children. I a just an investative reporter. I follow the evidence wherever it leads, even into the mens room.

    The case against Tabbi is compelling. Little children flee from the site of him. And everybody I know claims he is a predarist. Where there is that much smoke, surely there is fire. The public has a right to know.

    If Matt Tabbi is not a pedarist, then he will call a press conference in the Middle of Time Square with national and international reporters present. And before the world he will declare that he is not a pedarist.

    And then I will say, well you now have his side of the story. But he has a motive to lie, whereas his accusers are as innocent as the driven snow. Also, you saw that facial tick when he denied the charge. That usually means liar.

    But I am a journalist too. It is not my role to decide anything I will let the jury decide whether this liar Tabbi is telling the truth. And if they fail to charge him, then they are indirectly responsible for the next victim of his nefarious endeavors.

    That is about how big media operates.

  17. I think it would have been a rich irony if Romney instead of using the line “jumped the gun”, had used the same line Oturd and his minions used, “Shoot first, ask questions later”, something along those lines, can’t remember the exact phrasing.

    One other thing Tim: provocation.

    The evidentiary rule of probablity suggests that a seasoned diplomat like Philippe does not go off the deep end with someone UNLESS there was some serious provocation. Yet, the exchange which is posted, presumably by Hastings himself fails to disclose what Hastings said to provoke this kind of reaction described. On the contrary, the transcript suggests that Hastings was entirely reasonable. I do not believe that for one minute. The rule of probablity suggests that Hastings provoked the response through his own intemperate comments, and then proceeded to edit them out of the transcript–ala MSNBC. Finally, the rule of probability suggest this was an attempt by the hard left media cabal to scapegoat Hillary for the entire incident and thereby protect their light of love Obama.

    This is not the entire exchange. It strains credulity that a seasoned diplomat would go off like that based on the reasonable passages which the little maggot reports

    “Iran’s Nuclear Program and the Red Line”

    http://www.cfr.org/iran/irans-nuclear-program-red-line/p29095

    It’s a CFR piece but from other sources that I have read, I think that the possible time lines are real. I think that the key “take away is this:

    “Though Iran has made considerable progress on developing “a fairly robust nuclear weapons capability,” David Albright, a leading expert on Iranian nuclear issues, says, “The key issue is that they haven’t made a decision to do that.” Albright says that even though Israel has concerns about Iran’s uranium enrichment program, he believes an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear enrichment sites would not eliminate the Iranian ability, but would push them further toward nuclear weapons. “I think the Israelis, by attacking, could make the situation much worse, whereas if the United States makes it clear to Iran, ‘don’t cross that line or else there will be horrendous consequences,’ that strategy may be able to keep Iran from building the bomb over the next year or two.”

    If Obama is reelected, Israel will be forced to hit Iran enrichment facilities and that will likely give Iran the excuse to go for weapons development. Only the US can draw an effective line and also has the military capability to make multiple strikes if needed.

  21. Michelle about to blow a gasket:

    http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2012/09/24/169497/school-lunch-calorie-limits-leave.html

    Some Kansas students and at least one political leader say new school lunch guidelines aimed at limiting calories and encouraging good nutrition are having an unintended consequence:

    Hungry kids.

    “Here we are in the Wheat State … and I’ve heard some very sad stories recently about school lunches,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler.

    One was from Wallace County High School in Sharon Springs, where students and teachers created a YouTube parody, “We Are Hungry,” that blasts the new calorie guidelines:

    Give me some seconds, I,

    I need to get some food today

    My friends are at the corner store

    Getting junk so they don’t waste away …

    The video, based on the Fun. hit “We Are Young,” shows students staring woefully at lunch trays, stuffing lockers with junk food, collapsing during volleyball practice and crawling on the ground in exhaustion.

    “There’s just not enough” food, said 16-year-old Callahan Grund, a football player and star of the video. By Friday it had garnered 48,000 views – more than 62 times the population of Sharon Springs, a farming town not far from the Colorado border.

    “When you have chores in the morning and football practice after school, you need energy. … This doesn’t cut it,” Grund said.

  22. http://townhall.com/columnists/kyleolson/2012/09/23/complaints_mount_against_michelle_obamas_new_lunch_menu

    In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

    The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.

    Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.

    “I know a lot of my friends who are just drinking a jug of milk for their lunch. And they are not getting a proper meal,” middle school student Samantha Gortmaker told Keloland.com.

    Despite the fact that the new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, it’s not pleasing students.

    Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market – for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze, according to SouthCoastToday.com.

    Nancy Carvalho, director of food services for New Bedford Public Schools, was quoted as saying that hummus and black bean salads have been tough sells in elementary cafeterias. That means even smaller children are going through the day fighting hunger pains, which can never be considered a good thing.

    One government official tried to put the blame on the students.

  23. Bravo Wbboei!

    “The rule of probablity suggests that Hastings provoked the response through his own intemperate comments, and then proceeded to edit them out of the transcript–ala MSNBC.”

    Or, while he was at it, maybe Hastings falsified Reine’s parts.

    ” Finally, the rule of probability suggest this was an attempt by the hard left media cabal to scapegoat Hillary for the entire incident [….]”

    And amplified by the rightwing media who don’t want to face Hillary in 2016.

  24. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0912/81616.html?hp=t1

    President Barack Obama is trying hard to win veterans, but it looks like they’d prefer a new commander in chief.

    The Obama campaign had been hoping that veterans and their families — especially among the post-Sept. 11 generation that served in Iraq and Afghanistan — would be part of their path to victory: They’re a high turn-out demographic and concentrated in battleground states, with nearly 1 million each in North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia, and 1.6 million in Florida.

    But recent polls make clear that the president’s campaign is losing the battle. Even as Obama leads in Colorado, Florida, Ohio and Virginia, Mitt Romney is up by double digits among veterans in those states. Nationwide, he’s got a commanding 20-percentage-point lead over Obama and has even overtaken the president with younger veterans.

  25. And when he rats you out, Hastings will wrap himself in some lofty principle of journalism [….]

    You can’t blame this one on the replacement refs. All touchdowns go for review. The folks “upstairs” doing the review are NOT the replacement refs. This was a screw-up on the NFL booth reviewers.

  27. The problem, if you are communicating with someone you think is a hack, as a “professional” spokeperson for Hillary, he should definitely not stooped to this level, it reflects badly on him and on Hillary, he should have just stopped the communication, going on a full on blowout shouting match does’nt look clever.

    Same thing we do with the troll here, its not worth the effort of getting into a shouting match with it.

  28. The problem, if you are communicating with someone you think is a hack, as a “professional” spokeperson for Hillary, he should definitely not stooped to this level [….]

    =====================

    Well, that would assume him having pre-knowledge that Hastings was a ‘hack’. Hastings’ comments alone in that exchange were rather milder than many other, rightwing, statements quoted here condemning the State Dept. I’d agree those were from hacks (like Ace and Erickson and UM).

    Or, as Wbboei suggested, maybe Hastings cut out his own worst comments (or as I suggested, added bad stuff that Phillipe didn’t really say).

    Or maybe it’s been a terrible time for everyone at State, and Phillipe, being human, exercised his First Amendment Right of Free Speech (which cannot possibly be irresponsible).

  29. Obama is acting like someone who knows they are on the way out. He is only doing the parts of the job he likes before he is cast into oblivion such as getting as many tongue baths as possible from national jokes such as Baba Whahwhah. I still remember the interview she did with Castro many years ago where I thought she was going to sexually assault the tyrant.

    Most people, especially public office holders, get very busy at their job if they have an inkling they are about to be canned. Obama has a life long history of moving on before the stuff hits the fan and being fired. I think he is afraid of Netanyahu. He knows he cannot have a substantive conversation with him because of his deep ignorance, fantasy of his absent Muslim father, and inability to get up to speed on the Mid East. He will lose if he deals with him so he avoids him. CBS citing the fact that the President of the United States is only capable of doing one thing at a time, running for office, is pathetic. We as a nation are in peril with such a mediocrity (and I am being generous) in office. Obama appears to be increasingly going through the motions, spouting stupid and mindless idiocies, and just wants to get through the day with as little hassle as possible until he can move on. His staff is different in that they are not quite ready to give up their sinecures. It is always interesting watching someone who have never worked hard in their life playing at it.

  30. I suspect all the misinformation (like that bin Laden story) in the beginning of course started with the WH team (may be with that mastermind of all things incompetent Jarret) and Susan Rice took one for the team (I was surprised that she agreed to go before the camera and tout that line about the video). Hillary’s team is pissed because they have had to go along with that story line and take the fall as is happening now. They are taking the fall because nobody is holding Obama accountable but Hillary is getting the short end of this stick — he is having a gala time going on the view, fuck those stupid women. Reines is irritated and frustrated that Obama does not get asked these tough questions. The bottomline is why was there no security at the consulate, who was responsible, why did Hillary dropped the ball? was her understanding different like there needed to be no security at Benghazi because there was nothing going on there? who sent Amb Stevens there that day/night? why was he there?

  31. It appears there are many muslim americans coming out of the woodwork wanting Shariah Law in America. Note to them. NOT happening. Barky would looooove to do it, millions upon millions of Americans will not stand for such nonsense.

    “We understand the First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights and, as such, prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, etc., but when the allowance of “free” speech incites violence it should be banned.

    …..
    American Muslims are hard-working, law abiding, and tax paying citizens. Everyone respects freedom of speech and the First Amendment in general, however, when freedom of speech results in defaming and insulting others and provokes the killing of innocent people, it should be outlawed. In light of the recent situation, the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City hopes you may take up this cause and urge other representatives to do the same.
    Cont….

    Riiiight, so its the person who just expresses himself in a speech, movie etc that’s the criminal… not the actual person who kills, hurts people. Riiiiight. Wonder how many muslim americans feel this way. This is now the 2nd or 3rd report of muslims in America advocating for shairah law in america.

  32. http://www.nationaljournal.com/egyptian-president-morsi-tepid-on-u-s-egypt-relationship-20120925

    Egypt’s new president Mohamed Morsi on Monday described the relationship between the U.S. and Egypt as somewhere between friends and enemies, pointing to President Obama’s remarks that the two countries are not allies.

    When asked by CBS’s Charlie Rose how he would characterize U.S.-Egypt relations, Morsi was evasive. He said that the two countries are not enemies, but he would not necessarily consider the U.S. an ally.

    “This is dependent on the definition of an ally,” Morsi told Rose on CBS This Morning, speaking through a translator. “The understanding of an ally as a part of a military alliance, this is not existent right now. But if you mean by allied partnership and special diplomatic relationship and cooperation, we are that ally.”

    Morsi’s remarks were in response to Obama’s comments on the Spanish-language station Telemundo last week, when he said that “I don’t think that we would consider [Egypt] an ally, but we do not consider them an enemy.” The president’s statement was a reaction to demonstrations outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo last week.

    The State Department later amended the president’s statement, saying that Egypt is considered a major non-NATO ally.

    Morsi’s characterization of U.S.-Egypt relations comes on the heels of reports on Monday that Obama had cancelled a meeting between the two leaders.

  33. Romney jokes “A few words from Bill Clinton can do a man a lot of good…. Now I just have to wait for a bounce.” Romney praising the power of partnerships. Mitt’s doing well. Now talking about partnerships required to run Olympics.

    Now Romney is hitting his stride by praising the power of entrepreneurship and work.

  34. Romney gave a similar comment to NBC News. “There are extraordinary events going on in the Middle East and considering those events, either one of them or all of them collectively, as bumps in the road shows a person who has a very different perspective about world affairs [than] the perspective I have,” he said.
    ————————————-
    During World War I, while German spies were doing their appointed work in all the cultural centers of Europe and Mata Hari was doing her thing, and the Bolsheviks took our old ally Russia out of the war, and while the Battle of the Somme produced 450,000 casualties in only a few days–in short while the world was falling apart before our eyes, and as intercepted German cables tricked into the office of the British Secret Service, that overrated institution had one iron-clad rule–an artifact of the Victorian Period: gentlemen do not read other people’s mail/

    Approps of that, when Romney characterizes the difference between himself and Obama as “a very different prespective on world affairs than I have, he misses the essential point that Admin has been rightly obsessing about: it isn’t just that Obama has a different view than Romney. If that were all, then we could dismiss it with the simple bromide that reasonable minds can differ. The essential point is that Obama’s mind is categorically unreasonable, and in the end, his policies will get us killed–just as we saw with the Ambassador. A policy of weakness and appeasement in a dangerous world ALWAYS lead to disaster.

    Now Mitt–why is that so difficult for you to say. Forget about the media. They will savage you whatever you say. Just say what is right, and do not try to be subtle about it. You need to meet these issues head on, and as bibi says draw the red line. You cannot expect to be loved by the media, because your agenda threatens the plutocrats in Washington, so get on the right page, and you will win. And if you need some steel in your spine, consider how you will be looked upon if you do not win this election. You will become in the eyes of many people the man who failed to save the nation, and that will be your enduring legacy.

  35. I really like this guy… More and more. No slick con man here – a person of substance and experience.

    Madonna gives odd Obama endorsement

    At a concert in Washington, D.C. on Monday, Madonna declared her support for President Barack Obama but sounded confused about his religion.

    “Y’all better vote for f——g Obama, OK? For better or for worse, we have a black Muslim in the White House,” the singer said emphatically into the microphone. “Now, …that’s some amazing s—-t. It means there is hope in this country.”

  37. This tut tut stuff won’t cut it. Mild humor, temperate comments and pulled punches in an intemperate age makes you the whipping boy of a deranged partisan press. His Mormon background, his autocratic father and other factors make it difficult for Mitt to engage in the bare knuckles contest he needs to at this point. The whites of their eyes are visible Mitt. Commence firing–or get off the range.

  38. http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2012/09/24/u-s-post-in-benghazi-had-less-than-standard-security-before-attack/

    The U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, was operating under a lower security standard than a typical consulate when it was attacked this month, according to State Department officials.

    The mission was a rented villa and considered a temporary facility by the agency, which allowed a waiver that permitted fewer guards and security measures than a standard embassy or consulate, according to the officials.

    There was talk about constructing a permanent facility, which would require a building that met U.S. security and legal standards, the officials said.

    Allowing a waiver would have been a decision made with input from Washington, Libyan officials and the ambassador, according to diplomatic security experts.

    “Someone made the decision that the mission in Benghazi was so critical that they waived the standard security requirements, which presents unique challenges to the diplomatic security service as you can imagine,” said Fred Burton, vice president for Intelligence at STRATFOR, an intelligence analysis group.

    While standards were lower at the compound, security had been enhanced at the post after a number of incidents this year that included a failed bombing attempt against the compound in June, according to sources.

    Several security changes were made over the past few months, the officials said. These included additional barriers and barbed wire, increased lighting, chain link fences, additional sand bags and closed circuit television.

    Every U.S. building on the compound was also fitted with a safe room with a steel door, although the officials recognize that the room was not fireproof.

    Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the other Americans killed in the attack are believed to have died of asphyxiation from heavy smoke.

  39. I suspect all the misinformation (like that bin Laden story) in the beginning of course started with the WH team (may be with that mastermind of all things incompetent Jarret) and Susan Rice took one for the team (I was surprised that she agreed to go before the camera and tout that line about the video). Hillary’s team is pissed because they have had to go along with that story line and take the fall as is happening now. They are taking the fall because nobody is holding Obama accountable but Hillary is getting the short end of this stick — he is having a gala time going on the view, fuck those stupid women. Reines is irritated and frustrated that Obama does not get asked these tough questions. The bottomline is why was there no security at the consulate, who was responsible, why did Hillary dropped the ball? was her understanding different like there needed to be no security at Benghazi because there was nothing going on there? who sent Amb Stevens there that day/night? why was he there?
    ———————-
    When she signed on as sos I doubt she realized that she would become the scapegoat for his re-election campaign, and that he would by this act, end any realistic chances she might have had for 2016. That is how serious this is. And, thanks to the Hillary hating press she will be punished for what is essentially his crime, while he and MO celebrate their anniversary. The press allows him to skate. They are determined to re-elect him, because he is as good for them, as he is bad for the country, and they cannot or will not see past their own self interest. This is why, if Romney wins, as I still believe he will notwithstanding my growing frustrations, big media must be put out to pasture. No longer do they serve the public interest. On the contrary, they defile it at every turn.

  40. We knew it was a mistake at the time it was happening. We knew this was no Arab “Spring”. Obama did not have a clue:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/25/us/politics/arab-spring-proves-a-harsh-test-for-obamas-diplomatic-skill.html?smid=tw-share&pagewanted=all&_r=moc.semityn.www

    President Hosni Mubarak did not even wait for President Obama’s words to be translated before he shot back.

    You don’t understand this part of the world,” the Egyptian leader broke in. “You’re young.”

    Mr. Obama, during a tense telephone call the evening of Feb. 1, 2011, had just told Mr. Mubarak that his speech, broadcast to hundreds of thousands of protesters in Tahrir Square in Cairo, had not gone far enough. Mr. Mubarak had to step down, the president said.

    Minutes later, a grim Mr. Obama appeared before hastily summoned cameras in the Grand Foyer of the White House. The end of Mr. Mubarak’s 30-year rule, Mr. Obama said, “must begin now.” With those words, Mr. Obama upended three decades of American relations with its most stalwart ally in the Arab world, putting the weight of the United States squarely on the side of the Arab street.

    It was a risky move by the American president, flying in the face of advice from elders on his staff at the State Department and at the Pentagon, who had spent decades nursing the autocratic — but staunchly pro-American — Egyptian government.

    Nineteen months later, Mr. Obama was at the State Department consoling some of the very officials he had overruled. Anti-American protests broke out in Egypt and Libya. In Libya, they led to the deaths of four Americans, including the United States ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens. A new Egyptian government run by the Muslim Brotherhood was dragging its feet about condemning attacks on the American Embassy in Cairo. [snip]

    In fact, Mr. Obama’s staunch defense of democracy protesters in Egypt last year soon drew him into an upheaval that would test his judgment, his nerve and his diplomatic skill. Even as the uprisings spread to Libya, Yemen, Bahrain and Syria, the president’s sympathy for the protesters infuriated America’s allies in the conservative and oil-rich Gulf states. In mid-March, the Saudis moved decisively to crush the democracy protests in Bahrain, sending a convoy of tanks and heavy artillery across the 16-mile King Fahd Causeway between the two countries.

    That blunt show of force confronted Mr. Obama with the limits of his ability, or his willingness, to midwife democratic change. [snip]

    To some, the stark difference between the outcomes in Cairo and Bahrain illustrates something else, too: his impatience with old-fashioned back-room diplomacy, and his corresponding failure to build close personal relationships with foreign leaders that can, especially in the Middle East, help the White House to influence decisions made abroad. [snip]

    If the president felt a kinship with the youthful protesters, he seems to have had little rapport with Egypt’s aging president, or, for that matter, any other Arab leaders. In part, this was a function of time: he was still relatively new to the presidency, and had not built the kind of cozy relationship that the Bush family, for instance, had with the Saudis.

    But Mr. Obama has struggled with little success to build better relations with key foreign leaders like Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.

    In any case, after an awkward phone call between the American and Egyptian presidents on Jan. 28, Mr. Obama sent a senior diplomat with long experience in Egypt, Frank G. Wisner, to make a personal appeal to the Egyptian leader. But Mr. Mubarak balked. Meanwhile, the rising anger in Cairo’s streets led to a new moment of reckoning for Mr. Obama: Feb. 1.

    That afternoon at the White House, top national security officials were meeting in the Situation Room to decide what to do about the deteriorating situation in Egypt. Thirty minutes into it, the door opened and the president walked in, crashing what was supposed to be a principals’ meeting.

    Attending were Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.; Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton; Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates; the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Adm. Mike Mullen; and the national security adviser, Tom Donilon. Margaret Scobey, the ambassador in Cairo, appeared on the video conference screen.

    The question on the table would have been unthinkable just a week before. Should Mr. Obama call for Mr. Mubarak to step down?

    Midway through the meeting, an aide walked in and handed a note to Mr. Donilon. “Mubarak is on,” he read aloud.

    Every screen in the Situation Room was turned to Al Jazeera, and the Egyptian leader appeared, making a much-anticipated address. He said he would not run again, but did not offer to step down. “This is my country,” he said. “I will die on its soil.”

    In the Situation Room, there was silence. Then the president spoke. “That’s not going to cut it,” he said.

    Seeing the Inevitable

    If this were Hollywood, the story of Barack Obama and the Arab Spring would end there, with the young American president standing with the protesters against the counsel of his own advisers, and hastening the end of the entrenched old guard in Egypt. In the Situation Room, Mr. Gates, Admiral Mullen, Jeffrey D. Feltman, then an assistant secretary of state, and others balked at the inclusion in Mr. Obama’s planned remarks that Mr. Mubarak’s “transition must begin now,” arguing that it was too aggressive.

    Mr. Mubarak had steadfastly stood by the United States in the face of opposition from his own public, they said. The president, officials said, countered swiftly: “If ‘now’ is not in my remarks, there’s no point in me going out there and talking.” [snip]

    So “now” stayed in Mr. Obama’s statement. Ten days later, Mr. Mubarak was out. Even after the president’s remarks, Mrs. Clinton was still publicly cautioning that removing Mr. Mubarak too hastily could threaten the country’s transition to democracy. [snip]

    The tensions between Mr. Obama and the Gulf states, both American and Arab diplomats say, derive from an Obama character trait: he has not built many personal relationships with foreign leaders. “He’s not good with personal relationships; that’s not what interests him,” said one United States diplomat. “But in the Middle East, those relationships are essential. The lack of them deprives D.C. of the ability to influence leadership decisions.”

    Arab officials echo that sentiment, describing Mr. Obama as a cool, cerebral man who discounts the importance of personal chemistry in politics. “You can’t fix these problems by remote control,” said one Arab diplomat with long experience in Washington. “He doesn’t have friends who are world leaders. He doesn’t believe in patting anybody on the back, nicknames.

    You can’t accomplish what you want to accomplish” with such an impersonal style, the diplomat said.

  41. Romney might also demand that those “American Jews” who are protecting Barack Obama explain themselves and thereby expose themselves as allied to Barack Obama, not Israel – America’s #1 friend and #1 ally in the Middle East–admin.

    Obama at U.N. now. Started with flowery praise for Ambassador Stevens. Now flowery words for Arab Spring.

  45. Like we write constantly, “doing the best he can” from Obama supporters is the dumbest defense ever.
    ————————
    Admin: is that a defense, or an admission? It all comes down to a single word.

    If what they mean is he is doing the best job that HE–meaning Obama– can then it is an admission of failure. In that sense, it is akin to the statement that he has learned that he cannot change Washington form the inside–especially when he is the one feeding it. I have no quarrel with that.

    If what they mean is he is doing the best job ANYONE can then that is not what they said, and they are bound by what they said. Moreover, if he is doing the best job anyone can, then that is a transparent lie. His problems are as nothing compared to those which Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, or even Reagan faced. And unlike them, his problems are mostly of his own making.

  46. Admin, Wbboei, agreed re messages. IMO Romney needs much sharper communications counsel – and needs to take their advice.

  47. Obama now attacking the video “Innocence of Muslims” at the U.N. At least he agrees with us that the remedy for offensive speech is contrary speech.

  48. Obama’s speech at the U.N. is an embarrassment. Big Media will likely rave about it. But our problem with the speech is that Obama, once again, has no clue about reality. He thinks he can talk logically about free speech to savages that understand free speech very well but want to get rid of it nevertheless. Obama will get us all killed because he lives in a world of his own hallucinations, not reality.

  49. In the wardroom of a Navy destroyer, the custom is well settled that any subject is fair game for discussion and debate–save two: politics and religion. Experience has shown that those two subjects can be devisive in a groups setting and can, therefore, undermine the single objective of any fighting unit, i.e. small group cohesion. The same concern abides in a social setting where people you wish to be cordial to express their undying love and admiration for Messiah Obama, and you want to tell them, in the nicest way, that they are full of shit.

    I think the subject is not as radioactive as it may seem, and that there is in fact a way to broach the issue that does not do violence to relationships you hope to maintain. In order to do so however you must move beyond the issue of Obama and Romney to the larger issue of the vision they have for this country and the policies which are likely to follow in their wake. Also, you must show how who wins and who loses under each of those visions. The bias of big media should be explained in those terms as well.

    I could go on about this in detail, but I think you get the point. Don’t try to tell someone who loves Obama not to love Obama. It is a matter of taste, like some people like red wine and others like white wine. Such things are irreduceable and not worth arguing about because they only lead to impasse. In the alternative, contrast his vision with Romeny’s, point out where it will lead, identify who the respective beneficiaries and victims will be–today and tomorrow. That is fertile ground to plow, and it does not scare the horses.

  50. Before the Rooster Crows
    By: Erick Erickson (Diary)
    Red State blog

    Here is the most profound insight of the week I can give you — in American politics, if a Republican candidate loses, the media blames it on the candidate being too conservative. If a Republican candidate wins, the media credits the candidate drifting toward the center. The only sure fire loser in American politics is the conservative movement, which is remarkable given the amazing success the conservative movement has had in spite of this.

    What we are seeing now on the political landscape is a growing consensus among opinion makers and average voters that Mitt Romney cannot win the election. It is not true. He can, in fact, still win. The election is, in fact, exceeding close. But the Romney campaign is a victim of a perception it itself has helped foster. Like John McCain before him, Romney seems more at ease punching other Republicans than his Democrat opponent. The public is picking up on this and perceive him unwilling or unable to fight for victory. The public is, mentally, beginning to grow weary of this campaign and Romney must work to change perception if he is to win.

    Keep that in mind as I make a very simple point. There are a lot of elitist Republicans who have spent several years telling us Mitt Romney was the only electable Republican. Because the opinion makers and news media these elitists hang out with have concluded Romney will not win, the elitists are in full on panic mode. They conspired to shut out others, tear down others, and prop up Romney with the electability argument. He is now not winning against the second coming of Jimmy Carter. They know there will be many conservatives, should Mitt Romney lose, who will not be satisfied until every bridge is burned with these jerks, hopefully with the elitist jerks tied to the bridge as it burns.

    So they are in a panic. They are now throwing Romney under the bus to spare themselves. They are now doing the, “It’s not us, it’s him” routine. For years these people have gotten by knowing that they could hold the base of the GOP in contempt while holding on to their precious positions of “thought leaders” within the conservative movement and have no consequence should things go awry.

    Not now. They invested too much in Mitt Romney and now they are running scared. They seem to think that if they cry and scream loud enough and point fingers at Mitt Romney, they’ll again be protected from any sort of blame. They think the conservative movement will give them a pass just as the movement did with No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D, Harriet Miers, TARP, etc.

    The staggering irony is that those of us who did not want Romney are now the ones defending him to the hilt while the elitist jerks are distancing themselves from Romney as quickly as possible — both upset at what their media friends tell them is to come and upset that Mitt Romney might not actually listen to their sweet whispers as much as they originally presumed.

    Mitt Romney can win. He needs to hone his message. He needs to focus on the failings of this administration. But there is time and he can win. Should he, we will all sit back and marvel as this staggering horde of snobbery falls all over itself to remind Romney that these elite were with him all along — unlike those hicks and rubes within the conservative movement.

    With friends like these . . .

  51. The staggering irony is that those of us who did not want Romney are now the ones defending him to the hilt while the elitist jerks are distancing themselves from Romney as quickly as possible — both upset at what their media friends tell them is to come and upset that Mitt Romney might not actually listen to their sweet whispers as much as they originally presumed.

  54. WALL STREET INSIDER: Beware The First Presidential Debate – Obama Will Cheat

    [snip]

    And therein we come back to this American election of 2012. I wish to warn you of something rumored from the 2008 campaign, a rumor I will leave for you to decide whether or not to confirm. I made no such attempt to confirm myself as at the time, the political machinations of this or any other country held little interest to me so long as the prepaid outcome was ultimately finalized.

    It is my understanding that during the first debate between “Barack Obama” and Senator McCain, the Obama campaign was successful in implementing a planned question and answer segment within the debate format. By that I mean to say they cheated. This rumor first came to my attention approximately three days prior to the debate. There were communications, plural not singular, between an operative from the Obama campaign and an associate or associates for that first televised presidential debate in 2008. The Obama campaign wanted to make certain of a very particular question and answer segment in relation to the economic conditions of that time and the still ongoing attempts by the Bush campaign to deal with those challenges. This segment would then finalize the view of McCain’s incompetence and “Barack Obama’s” own brilliance. There was to be a line used by the man calling himself Obama, “orgy of deficits” that would pin Senator McCain to the Bush administration, which of course was at that time reviled by most of the electorate. The timing of this line’s use was to be signaled by the moderator himself to candidate Obama. I did not watch that first debate in 2008. I have not verified this well sourced rumor. I simply recall now what was told to me then with the growing concern a similar attempt will be made by the Obama administration yet again during this first debate to inflict harm to Mitt Romney as they did so to John McCain.

    What he neglects to say is the future must not belong to those who kill in the name of the Prophet Mohammad, while other followers of the Prophet Mohammed stand by with their thumb up their ass.

  57. And what does Messiah Obama do for the followers of Mohammed who stand up against the terrorists who kill in the name of Mohammed? Like, the doctor in Pok-eee-stan? Why he rats them out and lets them twist in the wind or languish in a brutal jail for the rest of their life. I am telling you again, Joker Obama is Satan incarnate.

    I doubt they will be able to plant questions in the first debate which is hosted by Jim Leher. He is a traditional journlist, as opposed to a celebrity wannabe like Brian Williams, or George Stepanapolis. I would worry, however, about what will happen in the other two debates. Experience has shown that ABC runs a revolving door with the White House press group, and CNN has had a similar sort of incestuous relationship. What this calls for is an affirmation at the beginning of the interview that no questions have been planted, and there have been no communications on the substance of the questions ask. If Romney’s staff does not demand this, they are guilty of malpractice.

  65. Latest WHI at Ulsterman on the status of the election.

    New Hampshire: +2 Romney

    Virginia: EVEN (This is not being reflected in media polling. Internals say otherwise. A very close race. I give slight edge to the governor.)

    North Carolina: +4 Romney (Romney will win NC and Obama campaign knows it. Their latest internal reportedly showed +5 advantage for the governor)

    Florida: +1 Romney (Close, but Jewish vote over last two internals now show trending against Obama. Could prove difference.)

    Ohio: +1 Obama (My gut says this is EVEN, but latest internal showing slight advantage to Obama. See what #s do after ad blitz and first debate performance.)

    Wisconsin: +3 Obama (Obama PACs dumping more $$$ into Wisconsin than they thought they would have to. Romney has never led, but governor’s team believes a 5% undecided segment could break overwhelmingly in his favor making this state far more competitive on Election Night than national polling now showing. I agree 100%. Wisconsin absolutely in play for us.)

    Iowa: Romney +2 (Media polling results way off. Obama campaign internals telling them far different. Romney internals confirm what Obama knows. Governor holding to slim margin but again, looking to see undecideds break for Romney on Election Day)

    Colorado: EVEN (This one too close to call. Internal #s hardly budged over the last six weeks. First debate will likely give momentum to one candidate or the other but right now, I give any EVEN state to Romney. Undecideds break against incumbent by 2 to 1.)

    Nevada: Obama +2 (Again, Obama lead not nearly as strong as national media indicating and there is to be a significant advertising push here in the next couple of weeks by Romney campaign. I know personally of the SEIU influence here though. Difficult to overcome.)

    Oregon: Obama +3 (Nobody talking about Oregon. It is on the table competitive. Large undecided segment showing up similar to Wisconsin. Could be a late left coast grab for the governor on Election Night. Hoping we won’t need it, but it is in play so worth mentioning.)

    PENNSYLVANIA: Obama +4 (Saved this for last. I am convinced Romney can pull this one out and here’s why. Getting very interesting #s in counties like Allegheny, Chester, Berks, Luzerne, and most importantly, Philadelphia. Governor won’t take Philly, not even close. What the internals are showing though is support near the 30% mark and that would be almost double what McCain did in 2008 and that, combined with those other leaner counties, puts a hell of a lot of votes into the Romney column. Would be a huge upset, but it is competitive and it’s forcing Obama to spend money in a state he should not have to and in a right race, that can be a real tactical advantage. A win here will take a lot of work and a lot of money in the last few weeks but if successful, totally worth the effort.)

    I will put Virginia in the got to win side for the governor. If we get Virginia, and steal Pennsylvania, Election Night is over and Obama is one and done. If we take Virginia, lose Pennsylvania, but also win Florida, then we just need Wisconsin and I think we pull out the win.

    First debate coming up HUGE. Cannot emphasize enough on that. Have to go all the way back to 1980 to find similar scenario.

    If the governor doesn’t show up, we are all f-cked.

  66. Hope those polls are correct as on RCP Romney is not winning on any of the national polls listed …spread still around 3.8%.

  67. jbstonesfan,

    I posted many links yesterday to show you how media skews the polls and the pollsters them,selves are dirty. Any poll with a +6 and above advantage for the POS is blowing smoke up your butt.

    I suggest you pull up the links again and tale a look, especially the site unskewedpolls.com.

    RCP does not reflect anything since it’s based on skewed polls.

    Come on. You’re an attorney. I know you are a smart guy. If I can grasp this concept I’m pretty sure it’s not a stretch for you to get it, too.

    The media is LYING about the POS. Don’t you get it?

    You really have to visit Hillbuzz as well to grasp the concept of eyeorism and how that’s a strategy to depress turnout and enthusiasm. It seems quite effective on you so you need some tactics to counteract your eyeore tendencies.

    It. Is. Not. Over.

    Here are a few links to start your re-education.

  68. Harry Reid is a circus clown.

    He claims to be a Mormon.

    However, that is a manifestly false assertion.

    A Mormon does not lie cheat and steal.

    But dirty Harry does.

    A Mormon is loyal to this country.

    But dirty Harry isn’t.

    Harry is a jack Mormon.

    So when he says that Romney is an insult to his faith

    And when he claims that unknown sources told him Romney did bad things at Bain.

    Nobody in their right mind take him seriously.

    How could they? Shorn of his rank and formality, all that Harry Reid is, was, and will ever be

    Is a circus clown

    And an annoying distraction from the main event.

    BE A CLOWN (HARRY)

    I’ll remember forever,
    When I was but three,
    Mama, who was clever,
    Remarking to me;
    If, son, when you’re grown up,
    You want ev’rything nice,
    I’ve got your future sewn up
    If you take this advice:

    Be a clown, be a clown,
    All the world loves a clown.
    Act a fool, play the calf,
    And you’ll always have the last laugh.
    Wear the cap and the bells
    And you’ll rate with all the great swells
    If you become a doctor, folks’ll face you with dread,
    If you become a dentist, they’ll be glad when you’re dead,
    You’ll get a bigger hand if you can stand on your head,
    Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown.

    Be a clown, be a clown,
    All the world loves a clown.
    Be a crazy buffoon
    And the demoiselles’ll all swoon.
    Dress in huge, baggy pants
    And you’ll ride the road to romance.
    A butcher or a baker, ladies never embrace,
    A barber for a beau would be a social disgrace,
    They all’ll come to call if you can fall on your face,
    Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown.

    Be a clown, be a clown,
    All the world loves a clown.
    Show ’em tricks, tell ’em jokes
    And you’ll only stop with top folks.
    Be a crack jackanapes
    And they’ll imitate you like apes.
    Why be a great composer with your rent in arrears,
    Why be a major poet and you’ll owe it for years?
    When crowds’ll pay to giggle if you wiggle your ears?
    Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown.

    Be a clown, be a clown,
    All the world loves a clown.
    If you just make ’em roar
    Watch your mountebank account soar.
    Wear a painted mustache
    And you’re sure to make a big splash.
    A college education I should never propose,
    A bachelor’s degree won’t even keep you in clo’es,
    But millions you will win if you can spin on your nose.
    Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown.

    Be a clown, be a clown,
    All the world loves a clown.
    Be a poor silly ass
    And you’ll always travel first-class,
    Give ’em quips, give ’em fun,
    And they’ll pay to say you’re A-1.
    If you become a farmer, you’ve the weather to buck,
    If you become a gambler, you’ll be stuck with your luck,
    But jack you’ll never lack if you can quack like a duck
    (Quack, quack, quack, quack)
    Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown.

  71. Voter watchdog says it’s uncovered absentee ballot fraud in Florida, New York

    A national voter fraud watchdog group announced Tuesday that it has uncovered at least 31 cases of absentee ballot fraud in New York and Florida — a finding the group claims is “just the tip of the iceberg.”

    True the Vote, a group that focuses on voter fraud, said it turned over 31 cases to state and federal election authorities in which individuals cast their votes in two states in the same federal election — which is a felony.

    Logan Churchwell, a spokesman for the group, told FoxNews.com that the organization accessed Florida’s complete voter registration roll and cross-referenced it against 10 percent of New York’s list. It identified more than 1,700 people with voter registrations in both states. Of that number, 31 people allegedly voted in both states during the same federal election cycle.

    Both Florida and New York require voters to cast ballots that correspond with their permanent home addresses. Under federal law, voters are prohibited from casting more than one ballot in the same election.

    “This is further evidence of just how susceptible our election system is to voter fraud,” the group’s president, Catherine Engelbrecht, said in a statement.

    The group said it has alerted the Office of Florida Secretary of State, the New York State Board of Elections and the U.S. Department of Justice of its finding.

    “This should serve as a warning to any individual considering committing voter fraud in this year’s election,” Engelbrecht said. “These findings are only the beginning of our effort. As today is National Voter Registration Day, it’s important to remember that no candidate or cause is worth a felony conviction.”

    Really?

    The dog ate your homework?

  73. Here’s something everyone can do sitting at their PC that costs nothing but a little time, and is probably more constructive than pleading with an eeyore not to be one: leave links to pro-Romney/anti-Obama articles, videos, and ads in the comments section of any news/political website or blog you can find that has a decent-size audience. Remember, most people get their news on the Internet now so this is a very effective way to reach voters. I’m a registered commenter on dozens of sites, including online newspapers in battleground states, CNN, NYT, etc., and I keep a list with me. I go through it every day and leave at least one good link on every site. I especially like to share the Youtube ads because they don’t take long to look at. Never give up!

  74. Democrats are so certain now that Romney is doomed that their hope is for the president to do or say nothing to change the climate of the race. But in his desire to look busy but take no action that might offend anxious voters, the president has drifted into an appearance of inaction at a time of international crisis.

    Obama and Romney are like pilots circling the same airfield, hoping to time their landing at just the right moment, or for the other to run out of fuel. Voters, like the passengers aboard the planes, have grown frustrated with the lack of direction.

    OBAMA’S INACTION ITSELF IS CHANGING THE DYNAMIC OF THE RACE. Unfortunately for the president, that’s happening AT THE MOMENT WHEN ROMNEY SEEMS TO BE COMING TO UNDERSTAND THAT HE CANNOT WIN THIS ELECTION BY DEFAULT.” (Emphasis added). Big media consistently saved Obama from himself.

  75. Disgusting, the world is in a shambles, our economy is in free fall and what is the President doing? I say this still very upset at the outcome of the Packers/Seahawks game. It felt like 5/31/2008 to me. But, this man who sneaks into the oval office lying to MEchelle that he is “working” while all the time watching “Homeland” on TV…this is what he was doing on Airforce One?

    ***************************************
    President Barack Obama spokesman Jay Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One that the president, an avid sports fan, watched the game and “thinks there was a real problem with that call.” Green Bay is in politically important Wisconsin, adding significance to Obama’s stance.

    “I’ve been saying for months we’ve got to get our refs back,” Obama said as he returned to the White House from a United Nations appearance in New York.

  77. Smart – this needs to happen in swing states too.

    Tea party: GOP can win Obama’s home turf
    Urgent call for Republicans to be election judges in corrupt county

    Needed now – 400 Republicans to volunteer in Cook County, Ill., to serve in November as election judges!

    That’s the call urgently being put out by Sharon Meroni, a tea-party mother from the Chicago suburbs who is leading the charge to stop Democratic Party voter fraud in Cook County, which reported casting 76 percent of its vote for Obama in 2008.

    “If we get the Republican volunteers we need in Cook County, I believe we might even swing the presidential election in Illinois for Romney,” she claimed in an exclusive interview with WND. “The problem is we need them right now.”

    The application deadline is Thursday.

    For years, Cook County Democrats have simply filled all election judge positions as county Republicans have virtually given up trying to fight entrenched Democratic Party corruption.

    Now, Meroni has 100 Republican election judges signed up, and she is confident she will find the remaining 400 needed to fill Republican election judge positions.

    Sharon Meroni at press conference Sept. 12

    The job pays $170 for the day, and it requires successfully completing training and assisting with polling place set-up before Election Day.

    Applicants can get additional information at the Cook County Clerk’s website, at the Board of Election Commissioners for the City of Chicago website or by calling the Cook County Election Judge hotline at (312) 242-1818.

    A “Volunteer Here” red button on Meroni’s DefendTheVote.com homepage takes those who want to apply directly to ElectionJudges.com, where a blue box, “Cook County Election Judge,” leads to a New Judge Application form on the Cook County Clerk website and a red box, “Chicago Election Judge,” leads to a “Become a Judge of Election” on the Board of Chicago Commissioners for the City of Chicago website.

  78. For you jbstonesfan,

    According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Obama enjoys a 3.7-percentage-point advantage over Romney in the race.

    But Newhouse argues the RCP average, which is designed to neutralize outlying polls, is just an average of skewed polls that have a built-in bias for Obama.

    “Averaging bad polls that include skewed samples will get you a skewed result,” Newhouse told The Hill.

    Nobody disputes that Obama maintains big leads over Romney among blacks, Latinos and younger voters, but Republicans argue the economic downturn that has hit these groups hard is likely to lower their turnout in 2012, especially since 2008 turnout was boosted by the historic implications of electing the nation’s first black president.

    As a result, they say, polls projecting similar turnout among these voters are inaccurate.

    Dick Morris, the political consultant and pollster (who writes a column for The Hill), wrote last week that pollsters using 2008 turnout models in weighting their samples are likely to be incorrect given the turnout results that year.

    Blacks made up 14 percent of the electorate in 2008, when they had traditionally cast about 11 percent of the vote, while the Latino share of the electorate rose by 1.5 percent and college-aged voters doubled their share, Morris wrote.

    The problem with the polls, say conservatives, is the assumption most pollsters make on the party identification of the 2012 electorate.

    In 2008, Democrats had a 7-percentage-point advantage in party identification over Republicans, which was close to the final margin of victory Obama had over Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

    Newhouse and other Republicans say it’s foolish to expect a similar proportion of Democratic voters in 2012. They argue a smaller proportion of Democrats are likely to come to the polls in November, while a larger proportion of Republicans eager to deny Obama a second term can be expected to vote.

    Polls that assume the makeup will be the same as 2008 don’t take this into account, they say.

    “You had an extraordinary 2008 turnout among rural evangelicals, but Republicans stayed home in larger numbers,” Newhouse said. “This time you have a more enthused and energetic Republican electorate, and because of that, you’re not going to see the margins go up, you’ll see it narrow. So instead of a 7 [percentage-point advantage for Democrats], I anticipate something smaller than that.”

    How has the Pentagon responded?

    Top officials believe culturally offensive behavior is the motivation behind the killings, so it’s stepped up Islamic sensitivity training for our troops.

    In an interview with Carl Cameron of FOX News today, Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan implied that President Barack Obama is attempting to cover up the details of what happened during the assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

    “I think they want to do their very best to keep the people of America from understanding exactly what happened. We expect candor, we expect transparency, particularly, as it relates to terrorism,” Romney said.

    “Why is he (Obama) not on the same page with his own administration officials who are saying that this is a terrorist attack? We’ll leave it up to you to decide whether it’s a coverup or not,” Ryan said.

    “The United States, long considered the standard bearer for economic freedom among large industrial nations, has experienced a remarkable plunge in economic freedom during the past decade. From 1980 to 2000, the US was generally rated the third freest economy in the world, ranking behind only Hong Kong and Singapore. The ranking of the US has fallen precipitously; from second in 2000 to eighth in 2005 and 19th in 2010. By 2009, the United States had fallen behind Switzerland, Canada, Australia, Chile, and Mauritius, countries that chose not to follow the path of massive growth in government financed by borrowing that is now the most prominent characteristic of US fiscal policy. By 2010, the United States had also fallen behind Finland and Denmark, two European welfare states. Moreover, it now trails Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Estonia, Taiwan, and Qatar. The Fraser Institute’s massive volume on the Economic Freedom Of The World – based on the following five factors: Size of Government, Legal System & Property Rights, Sound Money, Freedom to Trade Internationally, and Regulation – covers 42 variables with the goal of quantifying the key ingredients of economic freedom.

  84. In an obscure Victorian poem, Kipling anticipated the downfall of the British empire, and the disease that now afflicts our foreign policy under the tutalage of the Great One, Messiah B.H. (as in Blow Hard) Obama. The name of the poem is Dane-Geld. Our problem however is not the Dane. It is the Muslim Brotherhood. This is the rejoinder to his blow hard speech where he said the world must never evah be ruled by those who dishonor the Prophet. For a moment, I thought he was referring to himself. And here is the problem with that:

    Dane Geld

    It is always a temptation to an armed and agile nation,
    To call upon a neighbour and to say:—
    “We invaded you last night—we are quite prepared to fight,
    Unless you pay us cash to go away.”
    And that is called asking for Dane-geld,
    And the people who ask it explain
    That you’ve only to pay ’em the Dane-geld
    And then you’ll get rid of the Dane!

    It is always a temptation to a rich and lazy nation,
    To puff and look important and to say:—
    “Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the time to meet you.
    We will therefore pay you cash to go away.”

    And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
    But we’ve proved it again and again,
    That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
    You never get rid of the Dane.

    It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
    For fear they should succumb and go astray,
    So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
    You will find it better policy to say:—

    “We never pay any one Dane-geld,
    No matter how trifling the cost,
    For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
    And the nation that plays it is lost!”

    —————————–
    I commend to your attention the movie “Yes Prime Minister”. It is the story of a fictional Prime Minister named Francis Urquart, who succeeds Maggie Thatcher. He is the personification of Niccolo Machiavelli. He signs his written memos F.U. to replicate his initials and no less, his intentions. One of his favorite ploys is to start a rumor, and when it makes the rounds and comes back to him, he says: you may think that, but I really couldn’t comment.

    In my book, Paul Ryan is a great man. He is in no way shape or form Francis Urquart. But when he says we will leave it up to you to decide whether its a cover-up or not, and big media shit a brick, I remembered that famous line: you may think that but I really couldn’t comment. If he had stated the point affirmatively–it was a cover-up, then big media would have gone ape shit like the jackanapes they are. But when he raises it as a distinct possibility, he plants the seed, and then moves on.

    In a book called Strategy, military historian B.F. Liddel Hart lauds the indirect approach, which he says works in war, business, and matters of amore. You may think that but I really could not comment. What I can say is in this particular case, where big media attacked Romney for saying what he needed to say as a candidate, the rhetorical question is the better course. Also, it leaves the decisionmaker–in this case, the electorate, the opportunity to weigh the equities and reach their own conclusion, rather than having it dictated to them. F.Lee Bailey was fond of this technique and it is common among British barristers.

    “Hillary is a serious person, Oturd is an ambitious person. Hillary gets up thinking about policies, Oturd gets up in the morning thinking about Oturd. Oturd is a part time president
    ——————————————-
    There is a conspiracy afoot to blame Hillary for the death of the Ambassador. The push for this is coming from the Obama Adminstration and left wing journalists including the one I mentioned above.

    But the Republicans are not falling for it. Their counter strategy is to praise Hillary and condemn Obama. This is the correct political strategy and it has the added advantage of being true.

    Kissinger is a big fan of Hillary and has said as much. He has no respect for Obama, because, as he told Romney what he sees everywhere he looks is the unmistakable signs of American weakness and retreat.

    Obama’s sanctimonious plea on behalf of the Prophet Mohammed and his concomitant refusal to discuss the killing of Coptic Christians is just more of the same.

    Nobody in their right mind believes that his sophistry will put a dent in the universe. He is just a mouthpiece delivering the same stale speeches–just words.

    Now that sounds like the real reason that Obummer didn’t meet with world leaders – so Romney wouldn’t be able to. Does that really stop Romney from being able to schedule his own meetings? He’s known Netanyahu for decades.

  91. Yes she support the creep when he went to Vegas after the torture and murder of the Ambassador. I think she has always been a closet supporter of the fraud.
    —————–
    I doubt it. She and her husband were strong Hillary supporters in the primary. And her husband supported McCain in the general election. Because of her position, she could not come out for McCain herself.

  92. Since when do big ears, a wart on the face, a skinny physique with no muscle mass equate to eye candy? He should marry himself.

    I agree with you Wbb, I saw Greta in Denver in 2008 and she took a photo of another Hillary supporter and I holding a lifesize photo cutout of Hillary, talking to four delegates on a sidewalk.
    She had a big smile taking that photo and I have followed her daily for years and do believe she supported Hillary and not the Fraud.
    She is about the only new reporter that tries to keep her politics close to the vest. She has run around the world with Hillary, and also followed Sarah.

  94. Since when do big ears, a gigantic mole on the face, a skinny physique with no muscle mass equate to eye candy?

    No $hit! 😆

  95. Greta annoys me with her giving that OTurd a pass many times. However I remember her husband Coale? went from Hillary to Mccain/Palin. And Greta has been pretty fair to Hillary as well as Palin. Its just her always giving Oturd the benefit of the doubt is getting mighty annoying to watch lately. There are some behaviors and actions that deserve no benefit of the doubt.

    I understand and am very aware that she was a supporter of Hillary. Not stupid, however her support of Hillary seems to me to have transferred into a leaning toward the fool as this campaign has worn on.

    I imagine she has had talks with Hillary, she see’s Hillary in a Cabinet position with the fraud, we have no idea what Hillary really thinks. She is in his WH and that’s a fact we can not deny. She has carried out fraud polices, she made poor decisions in the ME in regard to security of the Ambassador. Is that fully her fault, no, but does she share blame. Yes, but that’s off topic.

    Greta has taken a turn left, I have been watching, and it is troubling.I don’t think she supports R/R.

  97. Obama: ‘It Will Not Be Enough To Put More Guards In Front of an Embassy’
    Ben Shapiro
    Breitbart

    After his disastrous Univision appearance last week and a gaffe-tastic “60 Minutes” interview Sunday night, President Obama sealed the deal on a trifecta of failed appearances today with a deeply offensive speech before the entire world at the United Nations.

    In a speech Obama framed as a tribute to Chris Stevens, our murdered Libyan ambassador, the only mention the President made of the appalling and preventable security failures that left our ambassador, consulate, and three other Americans so vulnerable, was this bizarre and heartless passage: [emphasis added]

    But the attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on America. They are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the United Nations was founded – the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully; that diplomacy can take the place of war; and that in an interdependent world, all of us have a stake in working towards greater opportunity and security for our citizens.

    If we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an Embassy; or to put out statements of regret, and wait for the outrage to pass. If we are serious about those ideals, we must speak honestly about the deeper causes of this crisis. Because we face a choice between the forces that would drive us apart, and the hopes we hold in common.

    Today, we must affirm that our future will be determined by people like Chris Stevens, and not by his killers. Today, we must declare that this violence and intolerance has no place among our United Nations.

    There are two elements of this passage that are outrageously offensive, the first obviously being the idea that guards in front of an embassy won’t make a difference; or at least any kind of difference that matters.

    It was the anniversary of September 11, a top al-Qaeda operative had made direct threats to Americans in Libya, Stevens himself was worried about his personal security, and there appears to be intelligence that went ignored regarding the possibility of an attack. And yet, there were no Marines and no precautions taken when the anniversary of 9/11 alone should’ve been reason enough for heightened security.

    And yet, in front of the world today, we have the man ultimately responsible for these security lapses holding up his helpless hands and telling us that security doesn’t matter — that it’s not about Marines guarding embassies but about something existential; one of those super-duper intelligent things where Obama talks at a level mere mortals can’t comprehend or appreciate.

    In the wake of the preventable murder of four Americans at the hands of terrorists, how dare Obama even nudge the insinuation that it will “not be enough to put more guards in front of an Embassy.” It STARTS with Marines in front of embassies. It starts with Americans protecting their own at all costs and letting the world know just how high that cost will be if they dare attack.

    Obama’s ideals will not protect an embassy from terrorists, but you can bet the United States Marines can.

    Which brings me to the second outrageously offensive portion of the speech, and that’s this incredibly naïve idea that we are dealing with an ideology that can be negotiated with. Obama seems to think understanding and tolerance are antidotes to the pure undiluted evil responsible for the World Trade Center attack eleven years ago and the rape and murder of an American ambassador two weeks ago.

    If you can’t grasp the concept of evil for the sake of evil, you can’t fight that evil. Sure, you can run a push-button war with drone strikes, but the moment you start touchy-feely encounter sessions with evil, all they smell is weakness.

    And the result is exactly what we’re seeing in the Middle East today: Chaos, dead Americans, and al-Qaeda flags flying proudly over our embassies

  98. Dear Morning Briefing Subscriber:

    In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today the President of the United States declared that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, he’s just speaking bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not belong to practicing Christians.

    So that no one can claim we’re taking him out of context, I’ve got all the details and context right here.

    Sincerely yours,

    President Obama Declares The Future Must Not Belong to Practicing Christians

    By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | September 25th, 2012 at 11:20 AM | 140

    In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today the President of the United States declared that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, he’s just speaking bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not belong to practicing Christians.

    Pay careful attention to what he says.

    The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.

    Now, that’s the full paragraph so no one can claim I took him out of context.

    But consider this.

    It is an orthodox Christian belief that Mohammed is not a prophet. Actual Christians, as opposed to many of the supposed Christians put up by the mainstream media, believe that Christ is the only way to salvation. Believing that is slandering Mohammed. That’s just a fact. If you don’t believe me, you go into the MIddle East and proclaim Christ is the way, the truth, and the life and see what happens to your life.

    Then Barack Obama went on to say “Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied.” Note he says we cannot “slander the prophet of Islam” but it’s only the image of Christ in the next sentence — not actually Christ himself desecrated. If this is so, why does Barack Obama’s government continue funding the National Endowment for the Arts, which funded Christ in piss, the Virgin Mary painted in dung, etc.?

    Now, in point of fact, this is a major difference between Islam and Christianity. Christ came to this world as an enemy of the world and expected to be impugned. He also tells his followers that they should expect to be impugned. There is joy in being persecuted for following the Risen Lord. In Islam, if you impugn Mohammed, you get a fatwa on your butt.

    And then there is the first amendment. The President of the United States tried to have it both ways in his speech.

    I know there are some who ask why we don’t just ban such a video. The answer is enshrined in our laws: our Constitution protects the right to practice free speech. Here in the United States, countless publications provoke offense. Like me, the majority of Americans are Christian, and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. Moreover, as President of our country, and Commander-in-Chief of our military, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and I will always defend their right to do so. Americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views – even views that we disagree with.

    We do so not because we support hateful speech, but because our Founders understood that without such protections, the capacity of each individual to express their own views, and practice their own faith, may be threatened. We do so because in a diverse society, efforts to restrict speech can become a tool to silence critics, or oppress minorities. We do so because given the power of faith in our lives, and the passion that religious differences can inflame, the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression, it is more speech – the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and blasphemy, and lift up the values of understanding and mutual respect.

    I know that not all countries in this body share this understanding of the protection of free speech. Yet in 2012, at a time when anyone with a cell phone can spread offensive views around the world with the click of a button, the notion that we can control the flow of information is obsolete. The question, then, is how we respond. And on this we must agree: there is no speech that justifies mindless violence.

    Just words, Mr. President? You say “there is no speech that justifies mindless violence,” but all last week you condemned a ridiculous video trailer for a movie that does not exist. Your government ran advertisements in Pakistan denouncing the video. What of free speech, Mr. President? Last week you were saying the violence was understandable given the offensive film and this week you are trying to claim it was mindless.

    Oh wait, you did it again in the same speech where you said “there is no speech that justifies mindless violence”:

    At times, the conflicts arise along the fault lines of faith, race or tribe; and often they arise from the difficulties of reconciling tradition and faith with the diversity and interdependence of the modern world. In every country, there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening; in every culture, those who love freedom for themselves must ask how much they are willing to tolerate freedom for others.

    That is what we saw play out the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.

    Time and again the President of the United States tries to have it both ways.

    But are they just words?

    The fact is, many religions do not recognize Mohammed as a prophet. In the widest swath of Islam, that denial is, in and of itself, slander. So what exactly are you saying Mr. President?

    As an exit point, with all of President Obama’s statements on tolerance in his speech, we should remember that tolerance is really not a Christian virtue. As Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia noted, “We need to remember that tolerance is not a Christian virtue. Charity, justice, mercy, prudence, honesty — these are Christian virtues. And obviously, in a diverse community, tolerance is an important working principle. But it’s never an end itself.” The Archbishop also noted that evil preaches tolerance until it is dominate and then it seeks to silence good. That’s not a statement that the President is evil in any way, shape, or form, but we should be mindful when the secular world demands tolerance for all, tolerance for all means we cannot have standards of faith to live by, because those standards obviously require we be intolerant of sins this world has embraced

  99. Saw Ann on the Leno show she was great. Loved her outfit.
    The story she told of Mitt turning off the water heater before he left the house was funny


  100. Lyrics:
    Imagine there’s no rainbows
    piano playing cat
    no selling Winnebagos
    because some mob got mad

    Imagine other people
    dictating what we see on YouTube

    Imagine no intruders
    no making people scared
    No Hasselhoff and burgers
    would Honey Badger care?

    Imagine other people
    dictating what we see on YouTube

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    the situation’s too hostile
    I hope someday they’ll join us
    and we all can Gangnam Style

  101. neetabug,

    Ann was very funny tonight. Leno gently joshed, but wasn’t hostile.

    This is why I watch Leno and not Letterman. Leno is an equal opportunity offender, but also equal opportunity host.

    Letterman is just a crappy old liberal.

  102. President Barack Obama is sprinting through New York, planning to spend less than 24 hours on the ground and meeting one-on-one with no world leaders gathered for the 67th opening of the United Nations General Assembly. Republicans mocked Obama for spending Monday afternoon with the ladies from ABC’s The View and not, say, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy. But for the President, it was a calculated move just six weeks before voters decide whether to give him four more years. Why assume potential risks when he is polling well ahead of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on his handling of foreign affairs? Besides, world leaders certainly don’t vote in U.S. elections; and besides, Obama has Hillary Clinton to fill his shoes.

    For a man who has hardly utilized his cabinet in his first term, Obama’s dependence on his Secretary of State is striking. As he and First Lady Michelle Obama reminisced about their first kiss on The View, Clinton was blocks away meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. She also met with Morsy and will get together with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he arrives later in the week. By the end of Monday she’d already met with six world leaders; by the end of the week she’s scheduled to meet with dozens more. In practical terms, Clinton is acting as the head of state for this week’s United Nations summit.

    Who would’ve imagined that Obama and his former rival would’ve become such a team? It was just over four years ago, near the end of the Democratic primaries, that Clinton put out a television ad questioning Obama’s ability to answer a crisis call in the White House at 3 a.m. When Obama offered her the post of Secretary of State, pundits predicted that the ego of her husband, former president Bill Clinton, would get in the way or that she’d never truly gain Obama’s confidence. But four years later Bill Clinton headlined Obama’s 2012 convention, Clinton insider Jack Lew is Obama’s chief of staff and Hillary Clinton is quite literally managing Obama’s foreign policy while he campaigns and preps for the first presidential debate next week.

    Clinton’s ability to fill Obama’s shoes is a testament to her tenure as Secretary of State. Few have such star power on their own that they can step up to that level. If Clinton ever chooses to run for president again – her husband on Sunday said he had “no earthly idea” of her 2016 plans – it’s weeks like this one that burnish her credentials. In a 2016 race, Clinton won’t be talking about landing in Bosnia under fire as First Lady – a story she later had to correct – but how she ran the U.N. for Obama and how, when domestic crises kept him at home, she traveled more than any other Secretary of State in history.

    This is the killer quote.

  103. Have heard this morning that the DCCC has pulled all advertising in the Florida 22nd Cong Dist Allen West race, have given up chance of unseating him, word is the area is going heavily republican for him. Of course DCCC will say nothing of the sort but cancelling ad buys show they have given up on the race, same thing has happened in NC in various house races where the DCCC is pulling ads left right and center including Larry Kissels seat where all ad funding have been pulled

    http://atr.rollcall.com/florida-dccc-cancels-week-of-airtime-in-allen-west-race/

  104. Now we start indications of how things lie.

    Wisconsin: SEIU Backs Off 8th District

    The Service Employees International Union has canceled a previously scheduled television ad buy in support of businessman Jamie Wall’s (D) challenge of Rep. Reid Ribble (R).

    Roll Call has learned from a source monitoring Wisconsin advertising markets that the union will no longer follow through with its approximately $130,000 reservation in the Green Bay media market, which covers the 8th district. But the same source noted that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is still scheduled to go on television in Green Bay on Oct. 9.

    The House Majority PAC, a Democratic super PAC, had previously canceled a $130,000 television ad-buy reservation in mid-September.

    Despite the SEIU news, Democrats remain positive about the outlook of the race. A campaign spokesman said the Wall campaign will continue to push ahead with its own advertising.

    “I think this race is just starting to really heat up between the two of them,” said a national Democrat. That operative was quick to note the growing consensus that President Barack Obama will have coattails in the Badger State.

    Roll Call rates this race Leans Republican.

    http://atr.rollcall.com/wisconsin-seiu-backs-off-8th-district/

  105. MoonOnPluto, Allen West was supposed to have been very vulnerable to defeat. What West did was speak clearly and forcefully and what worry so much about the polls or what Big Media wrote about him – which is what Romney should do.

    We expect that soon enough Obama will pull his financing and efforts out of North Carolina. NC has long been gone but after the DNC convention failed in its aims to raise an army of volunteers it is clear Obama is just wasting money and time there.

  106. Who would’ve imagined that Obama and his former rival would’ve become such a team?
    —————————-
    If Time Magazine (fuck ‘e) thinks this is sad, then I agree with them.

    Making Satan successful, or just saving his sorry ass is a credit to no one.

    >>> The quote by Rumstead to Rommel is directly on point. It goes like this:

    “After intervening on numerous occasions to save the Bohemian corporal (in this case Obama) from the consequences of his own delusions, you finally reach a point where you are inclined to simply sit back with an air of detatchment and simply let nature take its course.”

    >>> And so is the quote by Disraeli hoping that no “small” misfortune would befall his rival Gladstone (in this case, Obama), to wit:

    ” If Gladstone (in this case Obama) fell in the Thames River that would be unfortunate. If someone threw him a life ring that would be a tragedy.”

  107. The Prophet Mohamad? The only one who would call Mohamad the Prophet is a believer. Christians and Jews do not accept Mohamad as a Prophet. The First Commandant is rather specific on that point, towit:

    I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other Gods before me. Mohamad’s God Allah would not be recognized. And if Mohamad’s God was not recognized as a God, then Mohammad could not be recognized as a Prophet.

    Obama’s reference to Mohammad as “the Prophet” settles the question of Obama’s religious convictions once and for all. He spent 20 year attending that hate factory otherwise known as Trinity Church. Reverend Wright is no Christian, and neither is Obama. Wright is most likely an atheist with his collar on backwards milking the scam for all it is worth. He now lives in a mansion. Shades of Jim and Tammy Faye Baker.

    Obama on the other hand is a Muslim posing as a Christian. Recall for example, he flubbed the first oath, which was done so he could avoid taking the oath on the Bible. Satan will never take an oath on the Bible. He took the second oath without the Bible. QED.

  108. This is very intersting info coming out of Pennsylvania……

    The 12th District which is Murtha’s old district.

    The Dem incumbent is in deep trouble, in 2010 special election the Dem Critz won with 52%.

    Currently the district is polling 38% each to the Dem and GOP with a lot undecided, however the interesting polling is that this district in 2008 went for McCain by 0.2%, with 49% each, in 2012, Romney has a 14% lead with a +8% dem bias of Romney 53/Obama 49%. Romney 4% up on mcain in 2008 and Obama 10% down on 2008. The suburbs and outer areas of Penn are telling a very different story to what we hear overall.

    http://atr.rollcall.com/pennsylvania-gop-poll-shows-tie-in-12th-district-race/

  109. The interesting thing about those PA numbers are that Obama won PA by 600,000 votes in 2008, if turnout drops, he is in trouble because if the polling in the 12th district holds true, he loses the difference of approximately 40 to 50,000 votes in that one district alone. The 12th district spun approximately 257,000 votes in 2008 on a 49/49 split but if Romney increased his vote to 53% and Obama collapsed to 39% there, it really does make a huge dent in Obama’s lead, replicate through that through the state with 19 districts and it points to a close race. So if turnout increases on 2008 for the GOP and Obama’s numbers do drop in turnout which all seems to point to that, Obama would need to turnout Philadelphia on a bigger scale than what it did on 2008 to take Pennsylvania.

    I’ll be watching polling closely on PA districts just to see if there is a trend there because if the outer districts don’t turn out for Obama then Mitt really does have a good shot at PA.

  110. Good Morning.

    “the DCCC has pulled all advertising in the Florida 22nd Cong Dist Allen West race, have given up chance of unseating him, word is the area is going heavily republican for him.”

    absolutely wonderful news, I have been doing some fundraising for him. Col Allen West is someone I hope wins this year and then at some point runs for higher office. A true American patriot!

    Apologies if someone already posted this. but WOW! Col West’s statement on the OTurd’s apologetic UN speech:

    http://www.facebook.com/notes/congressman-allen-west/the-president-continues-to-offer-up-apologieswhen-tolerance-becomes-a-one-way-st/408947045824995

    ” In his speech today to the United Nations, President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. He continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. There is no message to this silly video trailer, and it is beneath the dignity and esteem of the Office of the President of the United States to mention it at all. When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide. I shall not be tolerant of the intolerant. I know about the UN Resolution 1618 which would make any statement deemed by the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) “offensive’ to Islam a crime…..NOT ON MY WATCH FELLAS!

    My statement to the United Nations would have been, “The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence””

    wow!

  111. Endorsing Romney in Ohio May Be Hard Work, But Don’t Call It a Dirty Job

    Remember Mike Rowe’s open letter to Romney? He must have liked the response, because he’s endorsing Mitt today in Ohio.

    I don’t know if I want to say “game-changer,” but this certainly seems like an endorsement with the sort of blue-collar resonance that is worth more than most of the television commercials, mailers, robocalls, and so on.

    Politics can be a muddy business. Enter “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe.

    The Discovery Channel personality and Ford Motor Co. pitchman will offer his support Wednesday to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a public event in Bedford Heights. Romney’s campaign announced the Rowe endorsement late Monday when confirming Romney’s Cleveland-area itinerary for the final day of a two-day bus tour through battleground Ohio.

    Rowe made headlines this month for an open letter he wrote to Romney, seeking a “national conversation” on skilled labor and “about what we value in the workforce.” Rowe opened the letter by pledging to vote for Romney if he read the whole thing. A campaign aide later Tweeted a photo of Romney reading the letter.

    (Rowe closed the letter by saying he wrote to President Barack Obama four years ago but received no response.)

    Rowe’s open letter, by the way, was brilliant:

    Most of [our economic] “problems” were in fact symptoms of something more fundamental – a change in the way Americans viewed hard work and skilled labor. That’s the essence of what I’ve heard from the hundreds of men and women I’ve worked with on Dirty Jobs. Pig farmers, electricians, plumbers, bridge painters, jam makers, blacksmiths, brewers, coal miners, carpenters, crab fisherman, oil drillers…they all tell me the same thing over and over, again and again – our country has become emotionally disconnected from an essential part of our workforce. We are no longer impressed with cheap electricity, paved roads, and indoor plumbing. We take our infrastructure for granted, and the people who build it.

    Today, we can see the consequences of this disconnect in any number of areas, but none is more obvious than the growing skills gap. Even as unemployment remains sky high, a whole category of vital occupations has fallen out of favor, and companies struggle to find workers with the necessary skills. The causes seem clear. We have embraced a ridiculously narrow view of education. Any kind of training or study that does not come with a four-year degree is now deemed “alternative.” Many viable careers once aspired to are now seen as “vocational consolation prizes,” and many of the jobs this current administration has tried to “create” over the last four years are the same jobs that parents and teachers actively discourage kids from pursuing. (I always thought there something ill-fated about the promise of three million “shovel ready jobs” made to a society that no longer encourages people to pick up a shovel.)

    But I’m sure the president, as the de facto CEO of Government General Motors, can get one of their pitchmen to endorse him.

    NEW ID LAWS COULD DELAY OUTCOME OF CLOSE ELECTION

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The presidential election is Nov. 6, but it could take days to figure out the winner if the vote is close. New voting laws are likely to increase the number of people who have to cast provisional ballots in key states.

    Tight races for Congress, governor and local offices also could be stuck in limbo while election officials scrutinize ballots, a scenario that would surely attract legions of campaign lawyers from both parties.

    “It’s a possibility of a complete meltdown for the election,” said Daniel Smith, a political scientist at the University of Florida.

    Voters cast provisional ballots for a variety of reasons: They don’t bring proper ID to the polls; they fail to update their voter registration after moving; they try to vote at the wrong precinct; or their right to vote is challenged by someone.

    These voters may have their votes counted, but only if election officials can verify that they were eligible to vote, a process that can take days or weeks. Adding to the potential for chaos: Many states won’t even know how many provisional ballots have been cast until sometime after Election Day.

    Voters cast nearly 2.1 million provisional ballots in the 2008 presidential election. About 69 percent were eventually counted, according to election results compiled by The Associated Press.

    New election laws in competitive states like Virginia, Florida, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin will probably increase the number of provisional ballots in those states this year, according to voting experts, although the new laws in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania are being challenged in court.

    New voter ID laws in states like Kansas, Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee could affect state or local elections, though some of those laws also are being challenged.

    Endorsing Romney in Ohio May Be Hard Work, But Don’t Call It a Dirty Job

    Remember Mike Rowe’s open letter to Romney? He must have liked the response, because he’s endorsing Mitt today in Ohio.

    Most of [our economic] “problems” were in fact symptoms of something more fundamental – a change in the way Americans viewed hard work and skilled labor. That’s the essence of what I’ve heard from the hundreds of men and women I’ve worked with on Dirty Jobs. Pig farmers, electricians, plumbers, …

    … Even as unemployment remains sky high, a whole category of vital occupations has fallen out of favor, and companies struggle to find workers with the necessary skills. The causes seem clear. We have embraced a ridiculously narrow view of education. Any kind of training or study that does not come with a four-year degree is now deemed “alternative.” Many viable careers once aspired to are now seen as “vocational consolation prizes,” …

    That’s a powerful letter. I’d love to see Romney’s response and an ad featuring Mike Rowe.

    Disgusting!… Phony Indian Warren Has Nerve to Release Indian Ad
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/09/phony-indian-warren-has-nerve-to-release-ads-lying-about-her-heritage-video/#comments

    This comment from “Nelle” nicely summarizes how I felt when I saw that ad this morning: “Sounds like she’s saying that her family weren’t liars, they were racists?”

    I was also struck how Warren confuses being confronted by the truth with Brown somehow “attacking” her family. I don’t know how she made it through law school with logic and reasoning skills like that.

  116. moononpluto September 26th, 2012 at 6:28 am

    … The 12th district spun approximately 257,000 votes in 2008 on a 49/49 split but if Romney increased his vote to 53% and Obama collapsed to 39% there, it really does make a huge dent in Obama’s lead, replicate through that through the state with 19 districts and it points to a close race. So if turnout increases on 2008 for the GOP and Obama’s numbers do drop in turnout which all seems to point to that, Obama would need to turnout Philadelphia on a bigger scale than what it did on 2008 to take Pennsylvania.

    I’ll be watching polling closely on PA districts just to see if there is a trend there because if the outer districts don’t turn out for Obama then Mitt really does have a good shot at PA.

    Thanks so much for the insight. You are an antidote to the Eeyores here.

  117. “You can’t prove a negative.” Even if you dismiss the family tradition, no one can prove that Warren is NOT part Indian.

  118. I like the intent of this, but is there now an army of pundits aghast as Hurt states?

    HURT: Obama’s ‘Empty Chair Diplomacy’ on ‘View’ – Washington Times
    Finally, the army of pundits are aghast at President Obama. They are shocked at his unmannerly dismissal of the global stage where he belongs. They are astonished by his callous indifference to the world peace he promised us. All in the name of craven politics with a little couch time on daytime TV.
    Scandalous! Inexplicable! Terrible judgment!The idea that Mr. Obama would sit with the ladies of “The View” while Libya burns, Iran perfects a nuclear weapon and Syria spins out of control shocked them out of their senses. They’re horrified that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — whose country’s very existence rests in his hands at this moment — would travel 5,737 miles to the last lighthouse of freedom in the world, and President Obama won’t even cross the street to meet him.
    Where have these pundits been? How is this a surprise?
    Of course Mr. Obama has no time for American leadership in the world. Of course he has no time for anything other than winning re-election so that he can exercise all the “flexibility” he wants once he will no longer be answerable to voters….

  119. Bozell and Conservative Leaders Call on Public to Tune out the Liberal Media! | Media Research Center
    An Open Letter to the Biased News Media:

    This election year, so much of the broadcast networks, their cable counterparts, and the major establishment print media are out of control with a deliberate and unmistakable leftist agenda. To put it bluntly: you are rigging this election and taking sides in order to pre-determine the outcome. In the quarter century since the Media Research Center was established to document liberal media bias, there has never been a more brazen and complete attempt by the liberal so-called “news” media to decide the outcome of an election.

    A free and balanced media are crucial to the health of this country. It is your duty as journalists – as outlined in the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics – to “distinguish between advocacy and news reporting,” while simultaneously “seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues.”

    There is a reason why the media are viewed with such disdain by the American public, as evidenced by every recent poll on the issue.

    You have breached the public trust by willfully turning a blind eye to the government’s public policy failures, both domestic and foreign, while openly and shamefully smearing Gov. Mitt Romney. You are:

    • Painting conservative ideas as extreme, while refusing to report the disastrous consequences of liberal programs enacted since 2008.

    • Submerging the truly horrendous economic conditions America is facing and focusing only on minor political issues.

    • Characterizing conservatives as cruel budget “slashers” instead of responsible officials trying to avoid a debt catastrophe.

    • Focusing on alleged shortcomings in Romney’s business record instead of Obama’s record as the chief executive, whose policies contributed to a failed economy.

    • Deliberately covering up embarrassing government failures and scandals, including the Solyndra debacle, Fast & Furious, and national security leaks which have put American lives in jeopardy.

    • Pouncing on real and perceived missteps by conservatives, portraying them as bumbling incompetents, while suppressing embarrassing and incendiary remarks made by Vice President Joe Biden to prevent him from becoming a liability.

    • Portraying conservative opposition to tax hikes as an impediment to deficit reduction while failing to highlight how liberal tax increase policies will cause massive damage to the economy and cause the deficit to explode.

    • “Fact-checking” conservatives in order to discredit their arguments while regularly refusing to “fact-check” liberals who are distorting the truth.

    We the undersigned – representing millions of Americans from our respective organizations – are now publicly urging our members to seek out alternative sources of political news in order to make an intelligent, well-informed decision on November 6.

    It is time the American people turn you who are offending off, once and for all. You have betrayed their trust.

    Sincerely,

    In middle class demographic–all political persuasions equally sampled, Romeny is beating Obama 56-40 with 4% undecided per Rassmussen.

    Clinton’s ability to fill Obama’s shoes is a testament to her tenure as Secretary of State. Few have such star power on their own that they can step up to that level. If Clinton ever chooses to run for president again – her husband on Sunday said he had “no earthly idea” of her 2016 plans – it’s weeks like this one that burnish her credentials. In a 2016 race, Clinton won’t be talking about landing in Bosnia under fire as First Lady – a story she later had to correct – but how she ran the U.N. for Obama and how, when domestic crises kept him at home, she traveled more than any other Secretary of State in history.

    Really? Just how stupid do these assholes think we are? I know how they would answer that question, in their consummate arrogance. But the fact of the matter is they are the stupid ones–stupid because they say stupid things, and stupid because they apparently believe that people will actually believe their tripe. For the last two years Obama has been fundaising, at the expense of his official duties. If anything is interfering with his preparation for the debates, it not his official duties. It is his constant campaigning and appearances on air head shows like Letterman, Leno and the View, which are best watched, if at all, after three stiff martinis, straight up shaken not stirred. This is a prime example of hiding in plain sight–hiding from tough questions. Here from the 1959 stage play Camelot, and the role of Queen Guenevere comes a vivid description of what Romney needs to do to Gas Bag Obama. Don’t disappoint us, Mitt. Don’t even think of disappointing us. Fate has appointed you the defender of Western Civilization, no less than the small band of Spartans at Thermopolae.

  125. and i think Obama will be woefully unprepared, he could get away with that pie in the sky shit in 2008 with no record to run on but he has one now and when Romney turns and asks questions like “so where are all the jobs Mr President” or “exactly what is the truth about what happened in Benghazi to our Ambassador” and watch Obama cough splutter, look for the teleprompter and then die on his ass.

    he has done everything he can to get out of these debates and this job and i think he may just screw it up on purpose.

    US to boycott Iran leader’s speech at UN summit

    (AFP) – 1 hour ago

    UNITED NATIONS — The United States on Wednesday slammed “repulsive slurs” against Israel by Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and said it would boycott his speech at the UN General Assembly.

    Ahmadinejad, whose country faces growing pressure over its nuclear program, is one of the most high-profile speakers at the UN summit on Wednesday. He has made a series of comments attacking Israel and the West while in New York.

    “Over the past couple of days, we’ve seen Mr. Ahmadinejad once again use his trip to the UN not to address the legitimate aspirations of the Iranian people but to instead spout paranoid theories and repulsive slurs against Israel,” said Erin Pelton, spokeswoman of the US mission to the United Nations,

    “It’s particularly unfortunate that Mr. Ahmadinejad will have the platform of the UN General Assembly on Yom Kippur, which is why the United States has decided not to attend,” Pelton added.

    The United States, Israel and other western nations have regularly staged protest walkouts during Ahmadinejad’s previous speeches at the United Nations.

    This will be Ahmadinejad’s last appearance at the UN General Assembly as he is scheduled to stand down next year at the end of his second term as president.

  127. 25 Years of the Media Research Center

    By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | September 26th, 2012 at 04:30 AM | 10

    RESIZE: AAA

    In 1992, Andrew Rosenthal of the New York Times wrote a story about President George H. W. Bush expressing surprise at a common supermarket checkout scanner. The story was picked up by major publications and editorialists across the country as a common narrative that George H. W. Bush, a World War II veteran, Ambassador to China, CIA Chief, Vice President, and President had grown out of touch with America during his time in Washington.

    The story about George H. W. Bush and the supermarket scanner is still picked up and recycled as a cautionary tale in growing out of touch in Washington.

    There’s just one problem — the story was a complete and utter fabrication. Andrew Rosenthal was not there, did not see it, and based it off a pool report that never actually claimed what Andrew Rosenthal claimed. Don’t believe me? See this entry at Snopes.com for yourself.

    Andrew Rosenthal is now the editor of the New York Times editorial page.

    One of the only major organizations in America to raise a caution flag in 1992 about the story was Brent Bozell’s Media Research Center.

    For twenty-five years, the MRC has been doing the Lord’s work exposing what is now generally accepted by Americans everywhere — the media has a liberal bias and a liberal world view.

    Howard Kurtz recently wrote a review of Douglas Brinkley’s biography on Walter Cronkite, titled Cronkite. He notes,

    Barry Goldwater distrusted [Cronkite] from the start, and with good reason. On the day of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Cronkite nodded his head in thinly veiled contempt when handed a note on air that the Arizona senator had said “no comment.” Goldwater was attending his mother-in-law’s funeral that day.

    “Whether or not Senator Goldwater wins the nomination,” Cronkite told viewers another day, “he is going places, the first place being Germany.” Although Goldwater had merely accepted an invitation to visit a U.S. Army facility there, correspondent Daniel Schorr said he was launching his campaign in “the center of Germany’s right wing.” During Goldwater’s speech at the 1964 convention, some conservatives fed up with the networks gave Cronkite the finger.

    Four years later, after Cronkite had belatedly turned against LBJ’s Vietnam War, he met privately with Robert Kennedy. “You must announce your intention to run against Johnson, to show people there will be a way out of this terrible war,” he said in Kennedy’s Senate office. Soon afterward, Cronkite got an exclusive interview in which Kennedy left the door open for a possible run—the very candidacy that the anchor had urged him to undertake. (Kennedy announced three days later.) I am shaking my head at the spectacle of a network anchor secretly urging a politician to mount a White House campaign—and then interviewing him about that very question. This was duplicitous, a major breach of trust.

    In fact, Cronkite even bugged a committee room at the 1952 Republican National Covention.

    But Americans had no idea. Cronkite was the news. What he said was so was, in fact, so — whether or not it truly was. Americans trusted their anchormen who led them down paths they wanted the people to go. They, being liberal even back then, tried their best to steer the American people left.

    Through it all, more and more Americans realized they were being had. Their anchormen and many reporters were not only liberals, but in some cases were damn liars too.

    25 years ago, the Media Research Center started shedding the spotlight on the media’s bias. Today, the overwhelming majority of Americans agree with them. But the work is not over. The media continues to prop itself and its so called fact checkers up as objective arbiters of truth when they often rarely relate to the truth, let alone Americans.

    The Media Research Center does great work. I rely on them often on my radio show and here at RedState. Brent Bozell is a true friend who I enjoy immensely. I unfortunately will not be able to be at this year’s DisHonor Awards, the MRC”s big gala each year, but I do want to say to my friend Brent and all his crew at the Media Research Center — keep exposing the liberals in the media and God bless you for what you do.

    Happy Birthday MRC. America agrees with you, even if Walter Cronkite and his successors would want you shut up and shut down.

    US to boycott Iran leader’s speech at UN summit
    ———————
    Big fucking deal. The difference between Obama and Dinerjacket from Iran is a difference not in substance but in degree. BOTH believe the United States dominates and bullies the rest of the world, and wish to undermine its power. Wasn’t that the whole point of the apology tour, the charm offensive, and leading from behind. And is it not manifest as well, in Obama’s latest statement that the future must not belong to those who disparage the Prophet Mohammed. To repeat, the difference between Obama and the Iranian leader is merely a difference in degree. The weight of the evidence proves that they share the same vision and objective. Ergo, whether or not the US delegation walks out is irrelevant. It is all about the election. And, it is all done with a wink at a nod between an overt Muslim and a closet Muslim.

  129. love this video….and here are some of the idiots who caused this mess in the first place.


    Idiots who voted for Obama…….and have no idea who anyone else is.

    et tu Walter? I did not know.

  131. Abe Rosenthal was a 14 carrot asshole. I have heard people deplore Bill Keller for what he did to the NYT–and rightly so. This remittance man and son of the former CEO of Cheveron did incalculable harm to the Grey Lady. However, in their consumate ignorance, they point to the Rosenthal tenure as a sort of golden age for the NYT. Michael Goodwin will tell you stupid things like that. He is as wrong about Rosenthal as he was wrong about Hillary in South Dakota in re. Bobby Kennedy.

  132. House Armed Services chair: Obama WH hiding truth on Benghazi until after election

    http://is.gd/hyf7Qh Demands a new intel briefing

    The outrage over the Benghazi attack and the Obama administration’s response has percolated for two weeks on Capitol Hill, but it’s breaking out into the open today. Last week, the White House briefing for Congress frustrated Senator Bob Corker so badly that he told reporters, “That is the most useless, worthless briefing I have attended in a long time.” Today, House Armed Services chair Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon told Fox News that the Obama administration seems to be deliberately hiding the “truth” about the Benghazi attack, and that the only reason he sees for the subterfuge is the date in November that’s fast approaching:

    Six “top Republicans” in Congress, including McKeon, have sent a letter to the White House demanding a new briefing. McKeon specifically calls out UN Ambassador Susan Rice for pushing the “spontaneous” protest that “spun out of control” story days after the attacks, when intel showed within hours that the assassination of Ambassador Stevens was the result of a planned terrorist attack — on the anniversary of 9/11. McKeon still has no idea whether the FBI is in Benghazi at all, or whether the “crime scene” has been secured, more than two weeks later.

    Speaking of the FBI, McKeon points out that the White House response to this – and Rice’s spin — goes hand in hand with Obama’s “law enforcement” approach to terrorism. “They still have the mentality of treating this like it’s a law and order issue rather than a ‘war on terror’ issue,” McKeon tells Fox. The letter from Republicans to the White House specifically declares that the US seems not to have learned a lesson from the pre-9/11 attack failures:

    The letter, which was obtained by Fox News, says many questions were left unanswered about the Sept. 11 attack in last week’s intelligence briefing for lawmakers by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

    The letter also criticizes the administration’s handling of the aftermath of the attack, particularly its characterization of the attack as an out-of control protest rather than an act of terror against the U.S.

    Slamming the response to the attack as a “pre-9/11 mindset,” they ask the Obama administration what it plans to do to protect other U.S. interests abroad from being targeted.

    “Clearly, the threat from Al Qaeda and affiliated groups has metastasized; yet we do not appear to be learning from the past,” the letter states.

    The lawmakers who signed the letter include House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rep. Rogers, R-Ky., Armed Services Committee Chairman Rep. McKeon, R-Calif., Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman Rep. Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla. and Judicary Committee Chairman Rep. Smith, R-Texas, among others.

    Maybe the media would like a better briefing than they got from Susan Rice on 9/16, too. Let’s see if they start demanding one.

    Scandalous.

    Ahmadinejad’s ‘Iran Air’ plane parked at Andrews air base, for free

    Free parking is hard to find in Washington — but not, apparently, for the Boeing 747 that ferried Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to this week’s United Nations General Assembly gathering in New York.

    That plane, emblazoned with the “Iran Air” logo, was parked Wednesday at Joint Base Andrews — the same air field where Air Force One is stored. In fact, President Obama taxied past the Iranian jet on his way to two campaign events in Ohio.

    ………………………..

    I’d have told them to go park elsewhere.

    http://washingtonexaminer.com/in-ohio-dccc-and-pelosi-join-charlie-wilsons-war-on-women/article/2509081#.UGMzZ43ia6V

    For all their talk of a war on women, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have put their full backing behind a former congressman who lost his seat two years ago amid allegations that he had physically attacked his ex-wife.

    Pelosi accused Republicans of waging a “war on women’s rights” earlier this year. She’s also suggested that Republicans don’t “respect the judgement of women in America” during a press conference with EMILY’s List president Stephanie Schriock, who said Republicans “want to send us so far back we’re going to be in the kitchen.” To stop Republicans, Pelosi’s leadership PAC has given $8,000 to a man whose wife accused him of grabbing her by the neck and slamming her into a refrigerator.

    Former Rep. Charlie Wilson, D, has also been added to the DCCC’s Red-to-Blue program as he tries to retake his old southeast Ohio seat. Wilson lost re-election in 2010 after the release of his 1990 divorce records, in which his wife Clara accused him of beating her when they were married.

    …………………..

    The disconnect is amazing.

  136. JUICED: PRO-OBAMA POLLS RELY ON RECORD DEM TURNOUT

    If you’re going to believe the polls released from CBS/New York Times this morning — you know, the polls the media’s currently using to beat Romney senseless and to depress Republican enthusiasm, you have to believe that the turnout advantage for Democrats over Republicans will blow away every previous record and common sense.

    It’s that simple. Because these polls are not only telling us that Romney is losing OH, PA, and FL by insurmountable margins; these polls are also telling us that Democrat turnout is projected to blow away every modern record.

    But these media polls don’t headline what they’re seeing as far as the Democrat turnout advantage because no one would believe it. In fact, no one believes Obama will match the D+7 nationwide advantage he enjoyed in 2008. And no one certainly believes he will surpass it.

    Oh, except this non-stop litany of media polls being wielded like weapons by the corrupt media.

  137. almost fell off the chair laughing, these UN gigs break out the funnies.

    Morsi: “Egypt respects freedom of expression”

    aah right, that would be why you are protesting our embassy and crucifying Christians.

  138. Moon, when big media echoes the Obama campaign talking points that Obama has less time to prepare for the debates because he is too busy running the world, the rebuttal argument should be he should require less time to prepare because he is running the world, and his privy to private discussions which should give him a superior perspective on everything. Far from a disadvantage, his position as president gives him a huge advantage and the best preparation there is–ojt. Romney is the one who is at a disadvantage and he is working hard to simply catch up. And what ever happened to the big media arguement that he is a brilliant man, does not need to be at briefing sessions, because with or without relevant information, he just knows everything that is known and knowable. And if anyone doubts that, have him bring his Nobel Prize to the debates, so the ignoranti will know who and what they are dealing with.

  139. U.S. Army Lieutenant General (Ret.) William Jerry Boykin claims that individuals with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood hold security clearances in both the Pentagon and the Department of Defense.

    Boykin says Republicans should have listened to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn), who was correct to be concerned over possible Muslim Brotherhood ties of Huma Abedin, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff. Boykin says politicians on both sides of the aisle are scared to pursue the truth on this, for fear of being branded “intolerant,” and the result of their inaction is continued infiltration by the radical Islamic organization.

    He claims that people with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood hold important positions “in every major federal agency.”

  140. Who would’ve imagined that Obama and his former rival would’ve become such a team? It was just over four years ago, near the end of the Democratic primaries, that Clinton put out a television ad questioning Obama’s ability to answer a crisis call in the White House at 3 a.m. When Obama offered her the post of Secretary of State, pundits predicted that the ego of her husband, former president Bill Clinton, would get in the way or that she’d never truly gain Obama’s confidence. But four years later Bill Clinton headlined Obama’s 2012 convention, Clinton insider Jack Lew is Obama’s chief of staff and Hillary Clinton is quite literally managing Obama’s foreign policy while he campaigns and preps for the first presidential debate next week.

    I find this very disturbing, Hillary and Bill propping up the worst President this country has ever seen. Hillary is tied to the fraud and unfortunately will be blamed along with him as things turn even worse. If he is re-elected, we will have Hillary and Bill to blame IMHO.

    Quinnipiac Pollster Admits: ‘Probably Unlikely’ That Electorate Will Feature Massive Dem Skew

    Read more: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-sheffield/2012/09/26/quinnipiac-pollster-admits-probably-unlikely-electorate-will-feat#ixzz27bSXrVEj

    Interviewed last month by conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt, Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac polling operation was particularly squeamish about sampling under tough questioning from Hewitt about a poll which Quinnipiac had released showing Democrats with a 9 percentage point advantage in the state of Florida.

    In the conversation, Brown defended Quinnipiac’s sampling techniques but admitted that he did not believe that Democrats would outnumber Republicans to that degree in Florida come November. Pressed by Hewitt, the pollster said he believed that was a “probably unlikely” scenario. Instead, Brown kept saying that he thought his poll was an accurate snapshot of reality at the time.

    “What I believe is what we found,” he insisted while also touting his organization’s record of polls closer to actual elections.

    Despite not believing that Democrats would have a 9-point advantage, Brown defended his organization, claiming that they were not intentionally trying to skew their sample size:

    “We didn’t set out to oversample Democrats,” he protested. “We did our normal, random digit dial way of calling people. And there were, these are likely voters. They had to pass a screen.”

    But what if that screen is simply not enough? The 2012 presidential election is unlikely to have an electorate which is similar to the ones before it. In the 2008 election, young and black voters turned out in record numbers and voted in even higher percentages for Obama. As specific surveys of these two voter groups have shown, however, both are dispirited this time around and are less likely to turn out for Democrats.

    This point is particularly crucial given that the electorates in the years following 2008 have been much more Republican skewed. It could be argued that these were off-year elections and thus less likely to have blue-collar and college kid Democrats turn out to vote but ultimately no one knows today what the party breakdown will be November 6.

    That’s why it’d be best for pollsters like Peter Brown to double-check their work the way that Scott Rasmussen does against a running party ID poll, especially considering by Brown’s own admission that Quinnipiac’s process for determining who will actually vote is “not a particularly heavy screen.”

    A partial transcript of this highly illuminative interview is provided below courtesy of Hewitt show. Please see this link for the complete discussion. (Hat tip to Da Tech Guy who has more on the sampling controversy.)

    HUGH HEWITT: Why would guys run a poll with nine percent more Democrats than Republicans when that percentage advantage, I mean, if you’re trying to tell people how the state is going to go, I don’t think this is particularly helpful, because you’ve oversampled Democrats, right?

    PETER BROWN: But we didn’t set out to oversample Democrats. We did our normal, random digit dial way of calling people. And there were, these are likely voters. They had to pass a screen. Because it’s a presidential year, it’s not a particularly heavy screen.voting.jpg

    HEWITT: And so if, in fact, you had gotten a hundred Democrats out of a hundred respondents that answered, would you think that poll was reliable?

    BROWN: Probably not at 100 out of 100.

    HEWITT: Okay, so if it was 75 out of 100…

    BROWN: Well, I mean…

    HEWITT: I mean, when does it become unreliable? You know you’ve just put your foot on the slope, so I’m going to push you down it. When does it become unreliable?

    BROWN: Like the Supreme Court and pornography, you know it when you see it.

    HEWITT: Well, a lot of us look at a nine point advantage in Florida, and we say we know that to be the polling equivalent of pornography. Why am I wrong?

    BROWN: Because what we found when we made the actual calls is this kind of party ID.

    HEWITT: Do you expect Democrats, this is a different question, do you, Peter Brown, expect Democrats to have a nine point registration advantage when the polls close on November 6th in Florida?

    BROWN: Well, first, you don’t mean registration.

    HEWITT: I mean, yeah, turnout.

    BROWN: Do I think…I think it is probably unlikely.

    HEWITT: And so what value is this poll if in fact it doesn’t weight for the turnout that’s going to be approximated?

    BROWN: Well, you’ll have to judge that. I mean, you know, our record is very good. You know, we do independent polling. We use random digit dial. We use human beings to make our calls. We call cell phones as well as land lines. We follow the protocol that is the professional standard.

    HEWITT: As we say, that might be the case, but I don’t know it’s responsive to my question. My question is, should we trust this as an accurate predictor of what will happen? You’ve already told me there…

    BROWN: It’s an accurate predictor of what would happen is the election were today.

    HEWITT: But that’s, again, I don’t believe that, because today, Democrats wouldn’t turn out by a nine point advantage. I don’t think anyone believes today, if you held the election today, do you think Democrats would turn out nine percentage points higher than Republicans?

    BROWN: If the election were today, yeah. What we found is obviously a large Democratic advantage.

    HEWITT: I mean, you really think that’s true? I mean, as a professional, you believe that Democrats have a nine point turnout advantage in Florida?

    BROWN: Our record has been very good. You know, Hugh, I…

    HEWITT: That’s not responsive. It’s just a question. Do you personally, Peter, believe that Democrats enjoy a nine point turnout advantage right now?

    BROWN: What I believe is what we found.

    …………………………..

    So yes, they know what they are doing, they don’t believe their own polls.

  147. Shawdow, perhaps wbb’s words will make you think about this so called team. In law, we have “accomplices” when crimes are committed. I dare say anyone who supports this president and is part of his “team”, is an accomplice..

    —————————-
    If Time Magazine (fuck ‘e) thinks this is sad, then I agree with them.

    Making Satan successful, or just saving his sorry ass is a credit to no one.

    >>> The quote by Rumstead to Rommel is directly on point. It goes like this:

    “After intervening on numerous occasions to save the Bohemian corporal (in this case Obama) from the consequences of his own delusions, you finally reach a point where you are inclined to simply sit back with an air of detatchment and simply let nature take its course.”

    >>> And so is the quote by Disraeli hoping that no “small” misfortune would befall his rival Gladstone (in this case, Obama), to wit:

    ” If Gladstone (in this case Obama) fell in the Thames River that would be unfortunate. If someone threw him a life ring that would be a tragedy.”

  148. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/09/26/obama-struggles-with-independents

    Read this, very informative and poses stuff i was asking this morning about Pennsylvania.

    A further problem for Quinnipiac is that there are far fewer Democrat voters in the three states today than there were in 2008. A recent report from the liberal group Third Way found a more than 200k decrease in Democrats and a 20K increase in Republicans in Florida since 2008. How can there be a massive increase in Democrats turning out if there are fewer of them? Democrats outnumbered GOP voters in FL by 800k in 2008. Today? About 400k.
    In PA both parties lost voters, but the Democrat decrease was twice the GOP loss. Democrats have lost almost 350k voters since 08 and the GOP has lost around 160k. Their registration advantage over the GOP has narrowed by about 200k voters.
    Ohio doesn’t register by party, but the state has lost over 500k voters since 2008. The overwhelming amount of the loss was in Democrat-heavy Cuyahoga County. It stands to reason that the GOP’s position is better than it was in 2008.
    Keep in mind, that the level of Independents in these three polls is consistent with the 2008 vote. So, it can’t just be that Independents are suddenly identifying as Democrats in these polls.
    How the hell are the Democrats going to increase their turnout over 2008 if there are so many fewer of them? Even if they have a strong turnout, their position vis a vis the GOP has weakened in all three states. And, Quinnipiac’s own poll finds GOP voters more enthusiastic about voting than Democrats. Presumably, Democrats’ share of the electorate in 12 will be smaller than 08 even with an equal size turnout. Quinnipiac’s inflating it higher is simply fraudulent.
    ………………………..

    Talking this morning about Pa……Obama is losing a very big democrat district in polling currently by 14 points 53/39 when he was 49/49 in 2008, a district with 257,000 voters in 2008, now using those figures, obama loses about 40-45000 votes in that district alone and if 200K Pa democrats have disappeared since 2008……Pa is going to be a lot closer than many think it will.

  149. something tells me, a lot of those voters who disappeared since 2008 are the bogus ACORN voters that helped ramp up numbers and wont be around to vote this time.

  150. Here’s some more fodder.
    Pennsylvania Senate race moves to ‘lean Democratic’
    Even as President Obama has solidified his lead in recent months over Mitt Romney in Pennsylvania, Republican Senate nominee Tom Smith has been inching closer to Sen. Robert Casey (D).
    Smith, a self-funding former Democrat who emerged from the a crowded primary field in April, has outspent Casey on the airwaves during the general election, and polling shows he stands within striking distance of the first-term Democrat with under six weeks to go until election day.
    As a result of this narrowing, we are moving the Pennsylvania Senate race from “solid Democratic” to “lean Democratic” on our 2012 Senate map. The shift reflects movement toward the Republican side and suggests the race is firmly in play.
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2012/09/26/pennsylvania-senate-race-moves-to-lean-democratic/

  151. Anyway, something i have noticed is the distinct lack of a Dem push to sign voters up, its been very lacklustre, Dems are losing voters off rolls by the hundreds of thousands, yet no attempt to ramp up enthusiasm or signing up, its kind of absent.

    Wouldn’t that be something if this election was actually fair, and no stuffing the ballot boxes with dead people and not counting military votes that were to be turned in a week late.

    I don’t trust the Obama thugs will play fair in this election, think of all of them that will be out of work and depending on Romney to fix the job situation when they are in the unemployment line.

    Gore to lead Current TV debate coverage
    By Judy Kurtz – 09/26/12 02:37 PM ET

    Former Vice President Al Gore, who 12 years ago was talking “lockboxes” while debating then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush, will be analyzing the first presidential debate between President Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

    Current TV announced Wednesday that Gore, who serves as the liberal-leaning cable outlet’s vice president, will head up its coverage of the Oct. 3 debate in Denver.
    Gore will lead a roundtable featuring other Current TV hosts, including former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D), former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D), Cenk Uygur and John Fugelsang, according to a statement from the network.

  159. I recently drove through a predominately black area of St. Petersburg, FL (although there is still a significant minority of whites in this area), and witnessed Obama signs on 54th Ave South. I saw three yard signs within a couple of blocks distance. I guess that I should have expected it. Other than those signs, I have not seen any others in the counties of Hernando, Pasco, Hillsborough, Pinellas, or Polk which are the counties that I usually traverse. I have also seen Romney yard signs, but they were not concentrated in a single area as were the Obama signs. I live in a gated community that doesn’t permit yard signs. Yet, as turn down one of the streets that are in my neigjborhood, I can’t help but notice a Romney sign placed in the window of a home that everyone in my neighborhood needs to pass in order to get home. I love it, especially since most of my neigbors are Democrats from the northeast or Chicago areas.

  160. I was on the Taylor Marsh website today mocking her post about the “stench” comment. Although I don’t use the same handle as on this site, it’s not too difficult to determine who I am over there, especially if you are dyslexic.

    I love to hear the reports from Big Pinkers on the campaign stickers, signs and empty chairs.

    Sounds pretty similar all around the country. Unless Mitt makes a huge gaff or Barry starts a civil war, many young and disappointed will not go to vote.
    That is my prediction.

    Will Mitt still win, I hope to God he will.

  162. Gingrich disparages Obama, calls him ‘not a real president’

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) ripped President Obama for not meeting with world leaders on his trip to the United Nations on Friday, saying Obama is “not a real president.”



    “[Obama] really is like the substitute [National Football League] referees in the sense that he’s not a real president,” Gingrich told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News Tuesday night. “He doesn’t do anything that presidents do, he doesn’t worry about any of the things the presidents do, but he has the White House, he has enormous power, and he’ll go down in history as the president, and I suspect that he’s pretty contemptuous of the rest of us.”



    President Obama condemned the violent protests that have swept through the Middle East and offered a defense of free speech in his address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City on Tuesday.



    Republicans criticized the president for not meeting with world leaders on the trip, but for having time to tape an interview on ABC’s talk show “The View.”



    Gingrich called Obama a “false president,” saying he has a propensity to shirk his duties.

    

“This is a man who in an age of false celebrity-hood is sort of the perfect president, because he’s a false president,” he said. “He’s a guy that doesn’t do the president’s job.”



    Gingrich questioned whether Obama has the stamina and desire to be president.

    

“You have to wonder what he’s doing,” Gingrich continued. “I’m assuming that there’s some rhythm to Barack Obama that the rest of us don’t understand. Whether he needs large amounts of rest, whether he needs to go play basketball for a while or watch ESPN, I mean, I don’t quite know what his rhythm is, but this is a guy that is a brilliant performer as an orator, who may very well get reelected at the present date, and who, frankly, he happens to be a partial, part-time president.”

    No he just smile and said ok. I am not sure if he will remember.

    He is handsome. He is a bit thinner in person. He is also much warmer in person and funny.

  164. Did you see this? The R/R campaign should exploit this heavily in swing states, and ASAP:

    Note that these are UNDECIDED voters.

    Commissioned by the Susan B. Anthony List, the polling company, inc./WomanTrend surveyed 620 likely voters in four swing states September 18-19, 2012. Only registered voters who stated that they were both 1) “definitely” (89%) or “probably” (11%) voting in the upcoming elections for U.S. President and Congress and 2) were not solidly committed to either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama were polled.

    The number of interviews in each of the four states was as follows:
    Wisconsin 161 (26%)
    Florida 155 (25%)
    Ohio 153 (25%)
    Virginia 151 (24%)

    Once swing voters learn about President Obama’s extreme record on Born-Alive legislation they turn away from him.

    President Obama’s record of opposing equal treatment and constitutional protections for babies born alive after a failed abortion (opting to leave these babies to die without proper medical attention) negatively influenced a majority of swing voters.

    54% of swing voters said they would be less likely (35% much less likely) to vote for President Obama after learning that he voted against a law to give equal treatment and constitutional protections to babies born alive after a failed abortion.

    The president’s record on the Born-Alive issue costs him support even among his supporters: Nearly half (49%) of voters leaning towards voting for President Obama said they would be less likely to do so after learning about his record.

  165. I just watched the video. There is a woman with a blue sweater, white collar i am sitting next to her on the left. We both phone bank together. You can only see me clapping and the back of my head.

    When Mitt mentioned how he loves America and thinks O loves america the crowd booed. You can hardly hear it on the video

  166. Can’t believe Obama is trending up in swing state polls.. The big Libya scandal is not making any impression on people — like a coward of course, Obama is not saying anything at all and the ‘bumps’ comment is of course hidden by the media whores. Bret Baier’s panel were all negative, including Stephen Hayes, whom I like. His take was Romney is/was too soft against Obama.

  167. pm, don’t look at those polls, they are not true. Romney is winning. As far as Bret’s “panel”, they are either scared or neo cons for the most part.

  168. gonzo, it is frustrating to see what is going on especially with the media.. I just took a phone poll of some kind — they must think I am an anomaly — don’t support NRA, pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, liberal but voting for Romney and the republican guy whose name I don’t even know but fuck Chris Van Halen, in my district.

    You know where Obama got the idea to go after tax the rich, tax Romney? Hillary! She has been saying this to Pakistanis and other developing countries where there is not enough tax revenue because the rich don’t pay their share, they pay nothing and get away with it because of all the corruption. She has been talking about this for sometime and she mentioned it in her CGI speech with a caveat that she was not talking about the domestic politics in this country when she made her point (but everybody laughed and I am sure they think that she endorsing Obama with that comment).

    Like the lazy thief that he is, Obama and his minions have picked up on that and I have no fucking idea why that works in this country and why it is hurting Romney.

  169. Drudge headline is awful. Hillary is getting the brunt of this Libya scandal and Obama is off the hook. The fucking coward that he is — he is saying nothing, nothing but nobody seems to mind.

  170. pm317, they are all paid “analysts”, what do they really do? “analyze”, and how in depth are their “analysis”? not that much. they are people who get paid for their opinions, nothing more, nothing less.

    This is all about creating an illusion that Oturd re-election is inevitable. It isn’t, you should see how skewed the SEEBS poll was, +9% more dems than 2008, who the hell are they fooling with this nonsense??

  171. Some fucking WAPO reporter called Simon has written a ‘satire’, made up stuff with the intent of spreading misinformation about Romney/Ryan but you would not know it is satire until you get into page 2 and half way down. Some of the MSNBC fools picked it up and talked about it as if it were true. Where is the outrage and why the fuck does he still have a job? This media bias is so blatant that I am beyond livid.

    CNN and MSNBC Pundit Arrested for Vandalizing Anti-Muslim Ad In N.Y. Subway System

    By Tim Graham | September 26, 2012 | 17:00

    The New York Post reported Egyptian-American columnist Mona Eltahawy has been arrested for defacing an anti-Muslim ad in the New York subway system. The video shows her spraying pink paint on the ad while a supporter of the ad tries to block her. She’s a journalist for censorship.

    Eltahawy, a former Reuters correspondent, has been a recent favorite of CNN and MSNBC’s weekend morning shows to discuss Egypt, and she often smears together the Islamist “right wing” and the American right wing, as she did on Melissa Harris-Perry just 11 days ago [video and transcript below]:

    Story Continues Below Ad ↓
    ELTAHAWY: We [Egyptians] have a president who is trying to establish his position somewhere in the middle and we have a group that is trying to establish themselves on the right wing. And you`re having a similar situation in the U.S. We are coming up to elections now in less than two months. There is a right wing fringe there as well. So, you`ve got a right wing and a right wing. Both minorities, both trying to provoke people and a whole lot of people with very, very, sometimes legitimate grievances, but sometimes utterly senseless grievances, being caught in the middle.

    Eltahawy was even featured on the September 15 NBC Nightly News decrying America’s long-term support for Egyptian dictators. Here’s how the New York Post characterized the subway fight:

    “Mona, do you think you have the right to do this?” said Pamela Hall, holding a mounted camera as she tried to block the barrage of spray paint.

    “I do actually,” Eltahawy calmly responded. “I think this is freedom of expression, just as this is freedom of expression.”

    Hall then thrusts herself between Eltahawy’s spray paint and the poster.

    Eltahawy — an activist who has appeared on MSNBC and CNN — engaged her in an odd cat-and-mouse dance, spraying pink every time she had an opening.

    “What right do you have to violate free speech,” Hall pleaded.

    “I’m not violating it. I’m making an expression on free speech,” an increasingly agitated Eltahawy shot back.

    “You do not have the right!” Hall said.

    “I do actually and I’m doing it right now and you should get out of the way! Do you want paint on yourself,” Eltahawy shot back.

    As the poster defender bobbed and weaved to get in the paint’s way, Eltahawy mocked: “That’s right, defend racism.”

    Eltahawy appeared in the typically long segments on the Harris-Perry show on April 28, July 1, and September 15, and also appeared on Up With Chris Hayes on June 24. Just in September, Eltahawy was featured in seven interviews about Egypt just from September 11 to 13, including two appearances on Anderson Cooper 360 (the seven interviews would not count replays).

    CNN reported the vandalism this morning on Early Start, but Eltahawy was simply an “activist” gone awry:

    Check out this New York Post video. That is activist Mona Eltahawy, tussling with the woman holding a mounted camera. Eltahawy calls what she is doing an expression of free speech. That’s the very argument supporters of the posters used to win the right to put them up. Three of the 10 posters at various subway stations were ripped or defaced during the first day that they were up.

    Incidentally, this incident is actually the third time in less than a month that a person affiliated with MSNBC has had a run-in with conservatives.

    During the Republican National Convention in late August, a producer for the network allegedly assaulted some GOP delegates who were razzing MSNBC host Chris Matthews about his now-famous “thrill going up my leg” remark about President Obama. Just a few days later, Matthews himself got into a verbal altercation with some other GOP delegates who also teased him about his ardent love for Obama.

    Eltahawy was also interviewed on the April 24 Morning Edition on NPR, all about her provocative cover story for Foreign Policy magazine. As Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi explained:

    Even Foreign Policy – Foreign Policy! – featured cover skin: a naked model covered in black body paint done up to resemble a burqa.

    The latter image was used to illustrate a “Sex Issue” cover essay by Egyptian American writer Mona Eltahawy about the suppression of women’s rights in the Middle East and the Arab world. But it was also an ironic comment about magazine covers, said FP editor in chief Susan Glasser.

    “It makes a point about their culture and ours, and about American magazines and sex,” she said. “I don’t think you can look at that image as anything other than a commentary on Western culture’s obsession with the cliches of centerfolds and cover models and also the hard realities of the [Arab] culture that Mona is writing about.”

    Yes, sex, or at least sexiness, sells. Eltahawy’s article has gotten more than a million page views, making it one of the most-read ever for Foreign Policy, which is owned by The Washington Post Co.

    “OBAMA’S POSSIBLE TIES TO ARAB WORLD DEEPENS: A reporter for a paper called the Daily Interlake, Frank Miele, recently discovered a 1979 op-ed by Vernon Jarrett(the father-in-law to Obama Senior Advisor, confidant, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett) in the St. Petersburg (FL) Evening Independent. Miele reports the column addressed:

    “rumored billions of dollars the oil-rich Arab nations are supposed to unload on American black leaders and minority institutions.” The columnist quoted a black San Francisco lawyer who said, “It’s not just a rumor. Aid will come from some of the Arab states.”

    Well, if anyone would know, it would have been this lawyer — Donald Warden, who had helped defend OPEC in an antitrust suit that year and had developed significant ties with the Saudi royal family since becoming a Muslim and taking the name Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour.”

    If Hayes said that then yes I would agree with him and you, why would romney say that, he doesn’t need to. The middle class will get a $2000 TAX starting 2014 for not buying health insurance the US govt mandates. They don’t bring this up either.

    The problem is romney isn’t just fighting OTurd, but the entire american media as well. What a sad pathetic PO$, the american media is. The aren’t advocates for America, they are advocated for the oTurd/US govt, instead of keeping those in power in check, they go after anyone who tries to keep those in power in check.

  177. american “reporters” in all their glory. Ann Curry is so very confused why the Libyan president won’t agree with her Messiah. If this was Bush, and the story Bush told is being contradicted, hell yes, she would act as the counter argument. But since its her Messiah, hey, its the Libyan president who’s the liar, after all can’t offend the Precious’s storyling.

    “Make no mistake – the Mainstream Media is now fully engaged 24/7 in its “cook the books” polling data efforts to secure Barack Obama a second term as president. Look no further than this same media’s refusal to report upon the polling data of the number one accuracy rated pollster of the 2008 presidential election – Rasmussen Reports.

    Rove, OH and FL, toss up at this point, he had numbers to back it up but I didn’t pay attention
    ————————————————————
    make sense, why would o keep coming back to Ohio if he was so far ahead of Mitt

  180. yeah, if these polls were to be believed, why is Obama campaigning at all? He should just go golfing.. it was a beautiful day today in these parts.

  181. Hm. Bob Woodward on Hannity’s show, for the second time in just a few weeks. Little Bobby must be wanting to get his media-authencity cred up. Must have seen the poll where 60% of americans have no trust in the american MSM.

  182. what i realized, these people are like leeches, they go with however the flow is, in 2008, all pro-Oturd, so they went with that… now the part leeches have figured out that they need to get their credibility up, so they are pretending to be a little less pro-Oturd. Pretending, because its all a show, they will back him, lie for him by mid october.

  183. may be Woodward came out too strong against Obama in the book that all OBamedia are not giving him much facetime. So he is peddling it to the righties.

  184. poor Hannity, trying so hard, doesn’t he get, all these MSM are pure scum, pro-Oturd scum. There is no changing that, cannot convince them, its all pro-oturd, including Woodward.

  185. “may be Woodward came out too strong against Obama in the book that all OBamedia are not giving him much facetime. So he is peddling it to the righties.”

    bingo! I had the same thought!

  186. Maybe it’s my computer but The next post up doesn’t seem to have an end and no comment section.

    My husband was just talking to me. He voted for Hillary and BC twice. He is livid with them both and will ever vote for Hillary again. I am afraid a lot of people feel that way.
