Bob Costas says he
made ‘mistake’ with Jovan
Belcher/gun culture comments

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/4/2012 8:53:08 PM

NBC’s Bob Costas admitted that he made a “mistake” by airing his thoughts on the the Jovan Belcher shooting during a broadcast of Sunday Night Football, though he suggested “the gun lobby” had “orchestrated” some of the backlash. “What I was trying to say was, that if you want some perspective on this, there are a number of issues related to this that we could begin to talk about and think about,” Costas said on The Dan Patrick Show. “The problem was that I didn’t have enough time to get to many of them” in the short

Comments:
Yes Bob, you made a mistake by making political commentary during the halftime of a football game. Leftists always backpeddle when their stupidity causes an uproar.

No Bob, as Tom Wolfe coined in one of his novels, you "Screwed the pooch."

Now don´t try to kiss our asses by an apology that will not be accepted.

Better to remain silent and thought a fool, than to open one´s mouth and remove all the doubt.

Sound familiar, Bob? It should.

Bob was trying to deflect the issue away from football and make it about guns. The NFL is sorta like the cigarette manufacturers, they know football can cause serious and lifelong injuries but dont want to do anything about because of all of the $$$$.

ESPN glorified big "hits" for years and plays innocent regarding their contribution to this new gladiator sport.

He had all the time in the world to cover the points he wanted to cover.

He knew exactly what he was saying and I agree he was simply trying to deflect the blame from the NFL. BUT - it was a stoopid thing to say, not a mistake.

I heard the full interview. Whatever sense he spoke he erased quicky by going on a paranoid uninformed rant about ´assault weapons´ and the usual militia stuff.

It´s hilarious in a way because their agenda has driven them so far away from the actual events that occurred.

I don´t even know if Bob Costas drinks alcohol but he is guilty of taking what his late night cocktail Manhattan (Island and Perfect) crowd considers common wisdom when they´ve been drinking and, hence, feels expansive and turns it into his version of what he and his Gotham buddies consider to be the wisdom of the ages. Bottoms up and shut it, Bob. Really. We are being lectured to by those who can´t hold their liquor.

Obama statement recognizes ´tragedy´

Washington Examiner, by Charles Hoskinson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/15/2014 12:11:40 PM     Post Reply
Here are a few things missing from President Obama´s statement Tuesday marking the anniversary of the 2013 terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon: • The word "terrorism." • The word "bombing." • The fact that the bombers were motivated by Islamist extremist beliefs. No, in his mind this was a "tragedy" that just somehow happened and from which we need to recover, not a criminal act that may have been preventable. Here´s the statement, in full: A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon. Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded. Today, we remember Krystle Campbell

A new Citizens United Political Victory Fund poll shows that Republican Arizona voters have had it with Sen. John McCain, even though the senator has signaled his intentions to run for a sixth term in 2016. According to the poll, 64.2 percent of likely GOP primary voters said that they are ready for someone new to take the job and only 29.3 percent signaled a willingness to re-elect McCain. The poll also shows that McCain loses to other potential Arizona Repubican candidates in a primary. McCain loses to Gov. Jan Brewer 47.7 percent to 29 percent and to Rep. Matt Salmon 48.2 percent

Last week, a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee held a hearing provocatively titled “Is Al-Qaeda Winning?” The answers that the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade received were profoundly unsettling. Former Senator Joseph Lieberman (I–Conn.) testified that Syria had become a key focal point of al-Qaeda’s efforts. He noted that there are more foreign militants fighting in Syria today than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the past 10 years: “Put very bluntly, Syria has become the most dangerous terrorist sanctuary in the world today—and the United States has not coherent or credible policy for dealing with it.”

GOP, Don´t Be Comforted

As horrible as Kathleen Sebelius has been as this nation´s health and human services secretary, she has been exactly who President Barack Obama wanted her to be. This was no rogue incompetent tinkering with America´s health care. This was one of Obama´s chief lieutenants, one who was doing his bidding every step of that treacherous road they traveled together. Don´t get me wrong; Sebelius was inexcusably bad — arrogant, defiant, uncompassionate, dogmatic and unrepentant. Obama cashiered her only because it was time to deflect blame from himself and change the channel. There is nothing incompatible between assigning major blame to Sebelius for all

Marco Rubio is beefing up his political action committee, making significant high-level changes to it and his senatorial staff. The changes are intensifying speculation that Rubio – who many thought that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would pick to be his vice president in 2102 – is preparing the terrain for the 2016 presidential race. Publicly, Rubio, a Florida Republican, has said he has not yet decided whether to aim for the White House in two years, or whether he’ll seek re-election to the Senate. His announcement, on his website, suggested he might be looking at running in 2016, but stopped short of

Survey shows ObamaCare sending

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades. "For the last, about, five years they´ve been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they´ve been doing (it)," says Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute. "But at 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we´ve seen for decades." That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring. "There are specific states with exorbitant increases," says Gottlieb.

That would threaten the Internet’s independence as it would create an opportunity for regimes far less friendly to freedom to step in and gain power and influence. Well, this idea was so horrendous that even Bill Clinton, in addition to 35 Republican senators, spoke up and told the administration not to do it, as well as a great many other voices. Guess what.

Google has acquired drone maker Titan Aerospace, the Wall Street Journal reports. Titan is a New Mexico-based company that makes high-flying solar powered drones. There´s no word on the price Google paid, but Facebook had been in talks to acquire the company earlier this year for a reported $60 million. Presumably, Google paid more than that to keep it away from Facebook. It sounds like Titan will work on a variety of projects for Google. Titan will be able to collect photos from around the planet from high up, which could help with Google Earth and Google Maps. It will also contribute to Google's Project Loon,

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
