Well, that didn't take long. About 12 hours after last night's debate wrapped up the RNC went live with an online video attacking what it's calling President Obama's debate "smirk." Here was the blast that went out to reporters (via the Washington Examiner): "Good morning, we're out with a new video 'Smirk' highlighting the president's debate performance where he was visibly uncomfortable as he struggled to give Americans answers on how he'll turn our country around with another four years. As Morning Joe said this morning—it appeared as if Obama thought debating was beneath him."
Comments: Attack Ad ? There's not s single voice in the ad other than Mitt taking Barry to the woodshed last night juxtaposed to shots of 0bama SEETHING with hate and trying to cover it with his smirk. The ad is straightforward, effective & devestating.
#2 and # 3, right on the money! This guy considers the office, the country, and the people of the USA beneath him......I never understood why he did not just resign, after all, it's all below his pay grade.!!! The Hollywood lounge lizard got his ass handed to him last night! And I am sure behind the scenes he was getting even more from Sasquatch!That smirk was gone the moment he was in the car!
This doesn't begin to pay the smirker back for the pain and suffering he has put the citizens and the nation itself through during his occupation. I feel great that some of the truth of his exploits were exposed to so many millions last night. It is a good start, but I want much more on the national stage, for all to see.
The Emperor is unmasked as having no clothes. Obama's smirk is an attempt to mask his fear. His mind was likely spinning as to what he should say in response, but there is no defense for his failed Presidency. Obama feared looking like a fool and a wimp, and fears losing.

# 3, Obismal scribblings were: "Tell Val Jar to select colors for Hawaii residence. Tell Val Jar that she needs to co-ord with realtor and closing attorneys, ASAP. Hah, I don't need no stinkin 'qualified mortgage', whatever that is. Have Val Jar arrange Diamond Head CC membership. Tell Val Jar to start BO's quarantine process for move to Oahu. Remind Val Jar to tell Holder to work on blanket pardons. Oh, tell Val Jar to tell Hillary to go real slow on Libya cause I don't wanna answer a whole bunch of questions before I leave. Better late with junk than never. Damn, I have to address a whole bunch of stuff about movin thanks to Romney. 'Whole bunch of stuff', I like that. Will use in Madison today."
This debate showed the whole world that Barry's got NOTHIN'! He's been a poseur all along and his groupies and the msm (redundant I know) have been too stupid or too complicit to admit it. Hopefully enough people saw it and recognize the truth.
Obama had the look my kids get when I let them know that I am on to them and they are not fooling me. Part anger, part shame, part fear. I love this ad. How can it be a hit piece when it is just replaying a portion of the debate?
Naming the ad "smirk" was the only thing wrong with it. That makes one focus on the preezy rather than Romney's message. This wasn't Algore's sighs. It was just the face of someone being taken to the woodshed but trying not to look like it.
While Romney is ticking off all of Obama's supposed "failures," I see Obama barely being able to contain his pride in the destruction he has wrought. I see Obama thinking "Yeah! I did that!" I see a person being scolded and thinking to himself "Yeah! And I'd do it again, too!"
It is also rather frightening, because it could also be taken as the half-smile of a man who is the only one in the room who knows something is about to happen. Maybe he knows he's already lost and he's just looking forward to his retirement in Hawaii. I sure hope that's all it is. Either way, it's spooky for its inappropriateness.
A military judge says two servicemembers cannot be punitively discharged -- even if found guilty -- because of "unlawful command influence" reflected in comments by President Obama. Citing court documents, Stars and Stripes reports that "Navy Judge Cmdr. Marcus Fulton ruled during pretrial hearings in two sexual assault cases -- U.S. v. Johnson and U.S. v. Fuentes -- that comments made by Obama as commander in chief would unduly influence any potential sentencing." Attorneys for the defendants cited these May 7 comments by Obama on sexual assault in the military: "The bottom line is: I have no tolerance for this. ... I expect
The United States is considering calling off a major military exercise with the Egypt after Egyptian security forces killed scores of protesters on Wednesday, U.S. officials said. The bloodshed appears to have forced U.S. President Barack Obama´s administration to consider adopting a more muscular stance toward the Egyptian military, which toppled Mohamed Mursi, Egypt´s first freely elected president, on July 3.(snip)Asked why the exercise had not already been called off, the official said, "Everyone was hoping that things would improve." In another setback for U.S. policy, Egypt´s army-backed rulers declared a one-month state of emergency, restoring to the military the unfettered
The death toll in Egypt reaches 150 after the toppling of a Muslim Brotherhood flunky as president. Blood is on the hands of a U.S. president who undermined a key ally. It was as if a self-satisfied President Obama told the Egyptians: "Behold, I will strike with the rod that is in my hand the water of the river, and it shall be turned into blood." Obama went to Cairo his first summer as president with a kind of Moses complex, promising miracles, "a new beginning" in Muslim relations based on America apologizing for "crimes" such as saving Iran from Marxism-Leninism in
A conservative Texas lawmaker is inviting a rodeo clown banned from the Missouri state fair to perform in the Lone Star State instead. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.) says that the unidentified rodeo clown and his colleagues have been unfairly targeted by liberals “to create a climate of fear.” He invited them to come perform at a fair in his southeastern Texas district instead. “Liberals want to bronco bust dissent. But Texans value speech, even if its speech they don’t agree with,” Stockman said in a statement issued by his office Wednesday. “From Molly Ivins to Louie Gohmert and every opinion
Outraged over the Egyptian government’s crackdown today on Islamist protesters, local Muslims are planning to rally tonight outside the Henry Ford Centennial Library in Dearborn. And they’re concerned about a Dearborn man, Mohamed Soltan, who said via social media that he was shot in his arm by Egyptian security forces. “Democracy is being stripped away” in Egypt, said Suhaib Al-Hanooti, of Dearborn. “It’s not a pro-Morsi rally, it’s a pro-democracy rally, it’s an anti-coup rally…What the Egyptians fought hard for is being stripped away from them.” Shereef Akeel, a Troy attorney of
WASHINGTON — Six months after leaving her post as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton is jumping back into the public sphere. At the American Bar Association Conference today, Clinton announced a series of speeches to address high profile public policy issues including voting rights, which she addressed today. Next month in Philadelphia she plans to deliver remarks on the balance transparency in national security policies. A third speech will focus on the impact of U.S. national security policies on its reputation abroad. Devoting her first speech to what she called the “assault on voting rights,”
EDGARTOWN, Mass. -- President Barack Obama will spend the latter part of next week riding a bus through two Northeastern states to talk about the economy and building the middle class. The White House says the president will make stops next Thursday and Friday in New York and Pennsylvania. Further details were not released. Obama last month began a series of speeches around the country on his ideas for how to build the middle class and boost the economy. The trips have taken him to Illinois, Missouri, Florida, Tennessee and Arizona
A GOP super PAC wants its backers to “slap” Hillary Clinton in an online game, and Democrats are calling on the Republican National Committee to condemn the group’s campaign. The Hillary Project, one among a handful of anti-Hillary Clinton PACs and super PACs to crop up this year, has launched an online game encouraging visitors to “slap” an image of Clinton across the face. Buttons allow visitors to play audio of Clinton speaking, then slap her mid-stream. The game mimics a “Slap Palin” game launched by a fringe group in 2008 and aimed at then-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Earlier this summer, prominent Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, announced plans to run on a pro-Obamacare platform for the 2014 elections. Over the weekend, Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn reconfirmed those plans. The House assistant Democratic leader said on Sunday that his party will campaign on President Obama’s controversial healthcare law in 2014. “We will be running on ObamaCare in 2014,” Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) said during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “In fact, we set it up to run on it in 2014,” he continued.
“YOU’RE A BACK STABBER!” That’s what sources say Hillary Clinton accused her old love rival Barbra Streisand of being while in a fury over a salacious TV mini-series that threatens to blow the lid off her embarrassing marriage secrets.The former secretary of state fears the miniseries could destroy her run for the White House in 2016. Now she’s blaming the legendary singer for not stepping in after learning that former daughter-in-law Diane Lane would play Hillary in the multimillion-dollar production. “Hillary was in a rage with Barbra,” said a source. (snip)Sources say Hillary will do whatever it takes
Put out the lawn chair, set the alarm and maybe bring something to wet your whistle while you gaze into the nighttime sky — the year´s best shooting star show has started. August´s annual Perseids meteor shower peaks Sunday and Monday, promising perhaps 70 meteors an hour those evenings. "The Perseids are the good ones," says meteorite expert Bill Cooke of NASA´s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The Perseids take their name from their apparent origin in the constellation Perseus, the hero of ancient Greek myth born from a shower
It’s August 2013. What better time to talk about 2016? At this point, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been awarded the Democratic nomination virtually by default and declared the clear favorite to win the general election against her as yet unknown Republican opponent. That’s an overstatement, of course, but just barely. Make no mistake. The former secretary of state, former senator from New York and former first lady is in a commanding position at this very early stage. She stands far above all the others in her party who might seek its nomination.
Trenton — In case anyone had any doubts on where Gov. Chris Christie stands on climate change, he made his position crystal clear this afternoon: It´s real and it´s a problem. In vetoing a bill (S2946) that would have required New Jersey to stay in a regional program intended to curb greenhouse gases — a program Christie plans to leave by the end of the year — the governor said "climate change is real." He added that "human activity plays a role in these changes" and that climate change is "impacting our state." Christie´s words are his strongest to date in regards to
Three teenagers were charged Tuesday in the killing of a white college student in Duncan, Oklahoma, and part of the story is what didn´t happen. There was no saturation cable TV coverage, no press conference featuring Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson, and no statement from the Oval Office. The death of Christopher Lane, while as troubling as that of Trayvon Martin, will not become a national touchstone of racial and cultural debate or reflection. But maybe it should. A 22-year-old Australian from Melbourne, Lane was attending East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, to pursue his dream of playing that American pastime,
The images of three youths police say murdered Melbourne baseballer Christopher Lane have emerged. The Oklahoma teens, who face first-degree murder charges, have been named as Chancey Luna, James Edwards and Michael Jones, News.com.au has reported. But their parents yesterday protested their innocence. Jennifer Luna, whose son is suspected of firing the fatal shot, claimed her son was at home saying: "My son is not that way. My son is a good kid." Earlier today, former deputy prime minister Tim Fischer has urged Australian tourists to boycott the US in the wake of the shooting murder of the Melbourne baseball star.
Bradley Manning, the Army private sentenced to military prison for leaking classified documents, revealed he intends to live out the remainder of his life as a woman. “I am Chelsea Manning. I am female,” the Army private wrote in a statement read on TODAY Thursday. “Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition.” Manning, 25, was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Wednesday after having been found guilty of 20 charges ranging from espionage to theft for leaking
Former President Bill Clinton´s foundations spent a total of $50million on travel over the past decade, $12.1million of which was spent in just one year. An internal investigation into spending at the various charities that the former President runs found that the funds used for travel costs have gone up in recent years. The audit comes as new reports have revealed that the Clinton Foundation has been ´in the red´ for years even though the charity has raised hundreds of millions of dollars each year, showing the high cost of running the worldwide charity.
CAIRO — The world’s most influential Islamist movement is in danger of collapse in the land of its birth — its leaders imprisoned, its supporters slain and its activists branded as terrorists in what many are describing as the worst crisis to confront Egypt’s 85-year-old Muslim Brotherhood. In the week since Egypt’s new military-backed rulers ordered a brutal crackdown on camps filled with protesters calling for the reinstatement of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, the group that used its organizational muscle to win the country’s first democratic elections, held in late 2011 and early 2012, has been cast into disarray. Analysts
OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Australian man attending an Oklahoma college on a baseball scholarship was shot and killed in what police described Monday as a random act of violence by three "bored" teenagers who decided to kill someone for the fun of it. Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, was found dead Friday while visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live. Three boys, ages 15, 16, and 17, are in custody and face a court appearance Tuesday afternoon.Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday a woman called 911 after she saw Lane stagger across the road
Chris Lane is the Australian college student and baseball player who was murdered while jogging along a street in Duncan, Oklahoma. The perpetrators were three teenagers who were bored and decided to murder someone just for fun. They saw Lane running by, got in a car, drove behind him and shot him in the back. Two of the bored teenagers, Chancey Luna and James Edwards, have been charged with first degree murder:(Snip for photos)Their confederate Michael Jones is charged with being an accessory after the fact. Apparently Jones was driving the car, while Luna pulled the trigger on a .22
MSNBC host Chris Matthews went off on Tuesday about what he characterized as a variety of efforts by Republicans and conservatives to “delegitimize” President Barack Obama. Among the efforts he cited to prove this case are Republicans calling Obama “a liberal leader,” or simply “Obama,” instead of “The President of the United States.” Addressing Bush’s Brain author Wayne Slater, Matthews tore into what he saw as GOP efforts to ensure that the president’s legacy is a mixed one. “It seems there’s a very interesting compelling continuing effort to delegitimize this president,” Matthews insisted. “People on the right say he’s a disaster, which
Emboldened by an outpouring of support on social media, low-wage fast-food and retail workers from eight cities who have staged walkouts this year are calling for a national day of strikes Aug. 29. The workers — who are backed by local community groups and national unions and have held one-day walkouts in cities such as New York, St. Louis and Detroit — say they have received pledges of support from workers in dozens of cities across the country. The workers are calling for a wage of $15 an hour and the right to form a union. Organizers of the walkout say
Prosecutors on Tuesday charged two teenagers accused of gunning down an Australian student in Oklahoma for the “fun of it” with first-degree murder, and a third teen with being an accessory. Officials say 22-year-old Christopher Lane, who was visiting the U.S. on a baseball scholarship at East Central University, was jogging along a road in Duncan, Okla., after visiting his girlfriend on Friday when he was shot in the back, allegedly by the teens.
More than 1,600 new employees hired by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources in the aftermath of Obamacare´s passage include just two described as ´consumer safety´ officers, but 86 tasked with ´criminal investigating´ – indicating that the agency is building an army of detectives to sleuth out violations of a law that many in Congress who supported it still find confusing. On the day President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law in 2010, HHS received authority from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to make as many as 1,814 new hires under an emergency ´Direct Hiring
