In response to a question from reporter Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration´s mishandling of Benghazi raises "core questions of basic competency," press secretary Jay Carney revealed that Barack Obama "is not particularly concerned" about whether Susan Rice misled the American people: "What the president is worried about, Major, is what happened and why in Benghazi. He is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not--no,
Comments: Amazing. The neverending arrogance of 0bama is just stunning. He´s not particularly concerned about anything but himself and his abuse of power. And we get four more years of it.
Nor is anybody else expressing concern. What a sorry comment on our citizens. What I see as an offense worthy of execution others see as "no big deal". I suppose that is why anyone with any power seems to imagine they are above the consequences of their actions. There isn´t that much power in all the world. The Necktie Party is being organized. Y´all come join!
And Obama´s pal, Egypt´s President Morsi doesn´t care what the courts, the legislature and the people think. Two peas in a pod. The party of moochers has done itself proud, out-doing the first Mooch herself.
Why should he worry about anytning? He could right now get away with ANYTHING and no one would want to throw him out. It is the most amazing thing I have ever heard. Chavez has nothing on him. The leader in Egypt has nothing on Obama. They are all doing what they want and there is nothing the American people can or will do about it because everyone is afraid of the man and his followers. America is over.....
That the American people were deliberately lied to by his messenger doesn´t particularly concern him. Let´s cut to the chase... This response really says, I don´t give a s--- about the truth or the American people. They don´t deserve to know anything. End of subject. Next?
This punk , his fellow punks and punketts will go down. They will be defeated, exposed, and shunned . In the meantime, ignore his ´laws/rules/regs/ and do everything in your power to dry up the cash flow to their filthy paws and the paws of the takers. Yes, Takers, for we all know what type of person we´re taking about. We know it´s not the truly needy we abhor. It´s the classless filth that just takes while we work our butts off. For me, No more. I already gave at the office.
I sure hope Rants Pants will get another turn as RNC chairman. He will know what to do about this sort of thing.
I´m not that surprised that EVERY check and balance mechanism has been neutered or circumvented. That control for responsive, LEGAL, government went out the window when the filthy politicians were able to create laws that didn´t apply to them. What should terrify every non government citizen is the fact that the Republican opposition is either blackmailed or too afraid to act on ANY of this administrations blatant crimes. ALL of this is just fine with a media that created the most bizarre President ever.
Judgment Day is going to be a real eyeopener for Obama and all his cronies!
Susan Rice sacrificed her intelligence/believeability! She will no longer be trusted/admired. She sold her soul and one day will regret it.
America has denigrated our stature in the world by the conniving and dishonesty of this administration. Sadly, we are reaping the consequences.
We still have "In God we Trust" on our money. Hold fast that reality!
We have allowed/encouraged abortions, gay rights/marriage, all against God´s Way and He will have the last word - sadly, being - Depart from Me, for I never knew you! Hell is hot and confined!
Pray for America!
Entitlents have/will continue to destroy the land we love, where many fought/died for the freedom we take for granted.
Pray for America!
Don´t let Obama and all those who bow at his throne take away what Almighty God has given US - Freedom!
This election was stolen! We will reap the consequences - again!
I still think the parents of those who died because Obama did not act immediately, should sue him and the country and let there be a free trial where "all" the evidence will be forthcoming and we, the people, will see for ourselves who is in control!
Again, pray for America! God blessed US and we took Him for granted. No more! Make a stand for righteousness!
You can bet that Obama is not going to be particularly concerned about much going forward besides his progressive agenda. He is probably laughing like hell at the Republicans, Fox News, and others who are all wound up about what Susan Rice said on those news shows, as Obama said they should come after him, as you can be sure that he either told her what to say, or someone else in his crew did, and in the end nothing is going to be done about all that. That is the way it is going to be for the next four years.
I used to believe that Stinky´s chickens would all come home to roost on Nov 6. Now I don´t know what to think. The GOP is in no position to stand in his way and they are too meek to do so anyway. The MSM has been championing his every utterance.
He´ll skate on this like he has on everything else.
It seems like the Dark Ages has arrived for America. It could only happen because of the illiterate citizens who allowed this man to govern. Why would anyone be shocked that he is not concerned? He was the one who sent her out to lie.
Got to say something else here. The Republican Congress just as well pack their bags and go home for the next 4 years. There is NO way to win with this man. It reminds me of an ant sparing with an elephant. There is nothing we can do now. We are doomed.... there is no hope for America - ever again.
all the liberal teachers, professors, writers, actors, many doctors, psychologists, social workers, engineers (even from MIT) all believe obama is great. add them to the 47% and most of the country thinks this guy is great, the country is going to be fine and all is well. in their opinion, romney would have ruined the country and was a fascist. so the rest of us can rail all we want and it´s to the wind. stock up on food, water, medicine and get a gun. that´s what i´m doing. still in shock that romney lost. 2 lousy percent. where the hell were those 2%?
Look at all the attention paid to 2016. First, Obama is goingto get the22nd Amendment scotched-then he canrun again.. And which GOPer would you want torun against him. which would be the designated loser of that go-around. Second The congress passed all that lousy legislation leading to the so-called fiscal cliff. One of the GOP could prepare a bill in the House to cancel or repeal it and sent it to the Senate. The Congress acts like the legisalation came from King George III and nothing they can do. Even Chief Justice Roberts told Congress to clean up their act and re-do what they don´t like, maybe he was right.
Gunmen have killed a U.S. citizen working at an international school in the Libyan city of Benghazi, medical and security sources said on Thursday. The attackers shot the American man, who was an instructor or teacher at the Benghazi school, while he exercised in the morning, the sources said. No one claimed responsibility for the shooting. The U.S. ambassador to Libya was killed in late 2012 when Islamist militants assaulted the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
The Department of Health and Human Services has crowned a YouTube video entitled “Forget About The Price Tag” as the grand prize winner in a contest meant to encourage young people to sign up for Obamacare. The video contest, announced in August — in partnership with a group called Young Invincibles — encouraged participants to produce clips filled with pro-Obamacare messaging. HHS’s grand prize-winning video, announced Monday by the White House, features a young woman named Erin McDonald singing an Obamacare-loving version of Jessie J’s hit single, “Price Tag.” Without a hint of irony, McDonald sings her chorus: “Ain’t about
A Texas middle school principal has been placed on paid leave after she banned the speaking of Spanish by students while in class. In Hempstead, a town of about 6,000 about 50 miles northwest of Houston, a school district spokeswoman confirmed that Amy Lacey has been placed on leave pending investigation of her Nov. 12 announcement over the intercom at Hempstead Middle School. More than 50 percent of the school enrollment of about 330 students is Hispanic. KHOU-TV of Houston reports a letter was sent by the district to school parents on December 2 assuring that neither the district nor
Republican lawmakers bashed the Obama administration at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday for opting not to enforce core parts of the Affordable Care Act, such as minimum requirements for individual healthcare plans. Rep. Trent Franks (Ariz.), the chairman of the Judiciary panel’s Constitution and Civil Justice subcommittee, said Congress should sue the administration to spur Obama to enforce the healthcare law as written. “I think that’s the only choice we have, and that’s not just on ObamaCare, that’s on a host of different things,” Franks told The Hill. “He simply embodies a breathtaking arrogance that ignores the law he’s sworn to
Sunny, the Obama’s new puppy, knocked down a two-year-old girl Wednesday who was visiting the White House for the unveiling of the holiday decorations. Sunny and Bo were brought into the State Dining Room to visit children who were taking part in holiday crafts. The year-old puppy tried to escape her handler, knocking down 2-year-old Ashtyn Gardner in the process. The little girl got up quickly and her dad John said she was fine. Michelle Obama was present and helped Ashytn to her feet. The First Lady later checked on the little girl again. Obama was unveiling the 2013 holiday decorations and had invited
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) on Tuesday reintroduced legislation that would require the government to study the most practical ways of taxing drivers based on how far they drive, in order to help fund federal highway programs. Blumenauer´s bill, H.R. 3638, would set up a Road Usage Fee Pilot Program, which he said would study mileage-based fee systems. He cast his bill as a long-term solution for funding highway programs, and proposed it along with a shorter-term plan to nearly double the gas tax, from 18.4 cents to 33.4 cents per gallon. "As we extend the gas tax, we must also think about
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
