From GOPUSA.com, By Floyd and Mary Beth Brown January 11, 2013 - It’s even worse than we previously thought. A retired four-star admiral is now claiming that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America’s enemies to stage a bogus attack and the kidnapping of an American ambassador so he could “negotiate” the release of a “hostage” and bolster his mediocre approval ratings just prior to the election?The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes: “the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi… was the result of a bungled abduction attempt…. the first stage of an international prisoner exchange… that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’…
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats.No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack that killed four Americans at the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September.
He can get by his ’47 percent’ problem and beat Obama by outlining how he will get America back to work
From U.S. News, By Mortimer B. Zuckerman, September 21, 2012 – The problem for Mitt Romney right now is that he has put his entire candidacy at risk to the point where he may not even qualify for the dismissive equation of Barack Obama that Marco Rubio formulated for the Republican faithful: “Our problem is not that he’s a bad person. Our problem is that he’s a bad president.” Is Romney also “not a bad person, just a bad candidate”? With his “47 percent” remarks at a Republican fundraiser in May, he has given his opponent evidence to initiate a new line of attack.
The “our industry creates jobs” argument is the last refuge of a subsidy seeker.
From National Review Online, By Robert Bryce, September 17, 2012 - Proponents of wind-energy projects frequently claim that wind is free. That may be true, but creating jobs in the wind-energy business is a very expensive proposition.
The battle over the federal production tax credit (PTC) for wind, which amounts to 2.2 cents per kilowatt-hour and expires at the end of the year, is heating up. Last month, the Senate Finance Committee approved a plan to extend the PTC. Republican nominee Mitt Romney has said that, if elected, he will let the credit expire. President Obama wants to extend it: Last week, in a speech at the Democratic National Convention, he declared that “thousands of Americans have jobs today building wind turbines.”
From Breitbart.com, by AWR Hawkins, September 12, 2012 -
Obama has expanded civil-forfeiture rules making it permissible for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to seize weapons from citizens without the hassle of due process.
This effectively gives Attorney General Eric Holder, of Fast and Furious fame, extended power over guns and gun-related property.
From ClashDaily.com, By Allan Erickson, 8 September 2012 –
As Obama gets closer to receiving his walking papers, by consent of the governed, he has apparently decided to become transparent, but not about his policies and their failures. He appears transparent about his loathing, showing sensitivity to his critics. His rhetoric today does not compare to the inspirational tone four years ago. Instead, he seems nasty, sarcastic, dismissive and aloof.
Like in the old black & white TV days on the show “What’s My Line,” the real Barack Obama is standing up.
From NewsBusters.org, By Noel Sheppard, September 07, 2012 – For several years the left and their media minions have claimed that by bailing out Chrysler and General Motors, President Obama saved Detroit.
On Friday, the perilously liberal schlockumentarian Michael Moore debunked this in an article at the Huffington Post astonishingly saying, “No, he didn’t.”
“Last week, I said on the HuffPost Live webcast that we had all better start practicing how to say ‘President Romney’ because, living in Michigan, I can tell you that there’s trouble here on the two peninsulas and it’s not just because Romney is a native son or that we like to watch kids from Cranbrook chase down gay kids and chop their hair off,” Moore wrote. “One recent poll here showed Romney leading Obama by four points! How can that be? Didn’t Obama save Detroit?”
Consider syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer unimpressed with President Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance speech.
During Fox News Channel’s coverage of the Democratic National Convention Thursday night in Charlotte, N.C., Krauthammer said Obama’s speech lacked vision and called it “one of the emptiest speeches I have ever heard on a national stage.”
From RedState.com, By: streiff (Diary), September 6th, 2012 - Bob Woodward is out with a new book, called “The Price of Politics.” The first excerpts appeared today as Barack Obama prepares to accept the Democrat Party nomination for president. Woodward makes the best case possible as to why Barack Obama should be denied a second term.
As it turns out the fiasco of a vagina-based convention that denied God three times before the cock crowed — a convention that featured an adulterer and callous killer as its hero on the first night and an adulterous serial sexual predator as the hero on its second to prove just how serious they are about taking care of women — is really a fit metaphor for Obama’s Administration. The DNC (or is it D&C) convention in Charlotte (bonus question: what is the airport code for Charlotte, NC) is a gathering of ineptocrats. Obama’s Administration shows what happens when you put ineptocrats in charge of anything more complicated than a two-car funeral procession.
