  • Al Qaeda Wasn’t ‘on the Run’ - Obama blocked a full review and release of bin Laden's papers

    [SNIP] ".....In all, the U.S. government would have access to more than a million documents detailing al Qaeda’s funding, training, personnel, and future plans. The raid promised to be a turning point in America’s war on terror, not only because it eliminated al Qaeda’s leader, but also because the materials taken from his compound had great intelligence value. Analysts and policymakers would no longer need to depend on the inherently incomplete picture that had emerged from the piecing together of disparate threads of intelligence—collected via methods with varying records of success and from sources of uneven reliability. The bin Laden...

    It was the kind of meeting that conspiratorial conservative bloggers dream about. A month after President Barack Obama won reelection, top brass from three dozen of the most powerful groups in liberal politics met at the headquarters of the National Education Association (NEA), a few blocks north of the White House. Brought together by the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Communication Workers of America (CWA), and the NAACP, the meeting was invite-only and off-the-record. Despite all the Democratic wins in November, a sense of outrage filled the room as labor officials, environmentalists, civil rights activists, immigration reformers, and a panoply of other...

    Now that the Republicans have had their convention and Romney is up in the Polls despite the fact that the media and the polling organizations skew the polls to show NoBama still is up, I want to ease my conservative friends' fears (and I mean fears) that this fraud will win reelection... Obama won the 2008 election with everything going his way.  And I mean everything.  An economic meltdown (caused by the libs...), an extremely weak, old opponent with no juice and a VP candidate that polarized many of the dim-witted voters who really don't pay attention.  A country that...

    EW has confirmed, per Entertainment Tonight‘s exclusive, that George Clooney will host a fundraiser for President Barack Obama on May 10. The Oscar winner is inviting 150 guests to his Los Angeles home to support Obama’s re-election campaign. The tickets, running $40,000 apiece, will benefit the Obama Victory fund — a joint fundraising committee of Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee, and several state Democratic parties. Clooney has long been outspoken about politics both personally and professionally. He recently was arrested in order to bring awareness to the Sudanese humanitarian crisis and also participated in a staged reading of...

    Since Friday Barack Obama’s chances of reelection have dimmed considerably. The recent hits “Hope and Change Part II” has taken are not small and will cause even “true believers” to take heed. Friday Democracy Corps told Obama and his advisors they should stop telling people the economy is either getting better or has actually fully recovered as some wild eyed liars have been saying. In very strong language Stan Greenberg the DC pollster said even the weakest Republican message on the economy gets a markedly better response from voters than any variation of Obama’s “America is back” theme. Yesterday a...

    ]The 2012 outlook is improving modestly from a disappointing 2011. Economic growth picked up in the fourth quarter of 2011 to 2.8 percent and is expected to come in at 2.3 percent for 2012, up from 1.6 percent growth for all of last year, according to Fannie Mae’s (FNMA/OTC) Economic & Strategic Research Group. However, the year-end growth rate was due largely to a positive swing in business inventory growth, which is not indicative of underlying consumer demand or the overall health of the economy. Nevertheless, consumer spending improved modestly and manufacturing and services activity expanded at a strong pace....

    Washington Examiner ^ | 02/08/12 | Conn Carroll
    Gallup released a memo earlier this week titled, "Where the U.S. Election Stands Now," comparing past presidential approval ratings with each candidates reelection results. Gallup concluded: This historical pattern suggests that Obama would need to see his job approval rating climb to 50% to be in a comfortable position for re-election. History shows that by March of the election year, all winning presidents in the modern era, including George W. Bush, had job approval ratings above 50%, and all losing presidents had job approval ratings below 50%. This suggests that where Obama stands by next month may be an important...

    (CNN) - In a change of position, Barack Obama's reelection campaign will begin using administration and campaign aides to fundraise for Priorities USA Action, a super PAC backing the president. Obama has been an outspoken critic of current campaign financing laws, in particular a Supreme Court ruling that allowed the creation of super PACs. Until now he has kept his distance from Priorities USA Action. Follow the Ticker on Twitter: @PoliticalTicker But in the wake of the group's anemic fundraising, made public last week, the campaign decided to change its position, and announced the new stance to members of its...

    1. Your health care will be free. We have modeled our free health care after the efficient systems in Canada and England. Health care is for the healthy and the young. Valuable resources won't be squandered in treating the elderly because they have lived their lives. They just drain our money for Social Security and Medicare anyway. There are big benefits for the sick and elderly in the new healthcare plan. The government will give every elderly person a Yugo. The Healthcare Act Plan says, "Here are some pain pills for you to relax with. Now, “Yugo” take them." So,...

      Despite a sharp drop in the U-3 unemployment rate last month to 8.6 percent from 9.0 percent, there was no triumphalism coming from the Obama White House this morning. As economic adviser Alan Krueger wrote on the White House blog about the November employment numbers: Today’s employment report provides further evidence that the economy is continuing to heal from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, but the pace of improvement is still not fast enough given the large job losses from the recession that began in December 2007. … The monthly employment and unemployment numbers are volatile and employment estimates...

    President Obama should abandon his run for a second term and turn over the reins of the Democratic Party to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, two one-time Democratic pollsters wrote in Monday's Wall Street Journal, which appeared online Sunday. Patrick H. Caddell and Douglas E. Schoen argued that just as Harry Truman and Lyndon Johnson decided not to pursue additional runs though they could have, Obama should do the same. “He should abandon his candidacy for re-election in favor of a clear alternative, one capable not only of saving the Democratic Party, but more important, of governing effectively and in...

    Last week’s column asserting that the president is unelectable has triggered strong responses. Democrats, in particular, seem to think my judgment is premature. It strikes them as ridiculous that anyone could make such a “bold prediction” so far in advance of the 2012 election. Hey, that’s what we do, as seasoned political professionals, as pollsters. But I must stress that I am not so much making a personal prediction as drawing an informed conclusion based on all the numbers available. I do this in each election cycle for other candidates, and it’s time to make the call on President Obama....

    In 1936, Franklin Delano Roosevelt defeated Alfred Landon by an electoral vote of 523 to 8. This was the only contested election in which the major losing candidate received fewer than 10 votes (1788, 1792 and 1820 were uncontested). The landslide came on the heels of what appeared to be an economic recovery. Unemployment fell, productivity rose; people believed the New Deal really worked and they rewarded FDR accordingly. Shortly into the second term did the ugly truth reveal itself. The so-called recovery had been built entirely on government spending. Massive borrowing and government make-work projects put money in enough...

    There may be an overtly political reason that moviegoers will be seeing the story of the Osama bin Laden raid just before they vote for president. Sony Pictures, the company distributing next year's film, hosted a fundraiser for Barack Obama on their studio's premises in California last April. So far, Sony is the only major studio to hold a political fundraiser this cycle. According to Deadline Hollywood, Sony will release the bin Laden movie, directed by Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, on October 12, 2012--less than a month before the presidential election. "The eyebrow does go up when you see...

    Two recent polls spell trouble for President Obama. A Washington Post-ABC News poll, whose sample was skewed toward Democrats by a ridiculous 10-point margin (32 v. 22 percent, with Independents at 41 percent), showed the president’s approval rating to a near record low, with 47 percent approving the job he’s doing, down 7 points since January. Fully half of Americans disapprove of his job performance, with 37 percent saying they “strongly disapprove,” nearly matching the worst level of his presidency. Among independents, 55 percent disapprove of the job Obama is doing. Almost six in 10 Americans (57 percent) disapprove of...

    The mainstream media are trying to put lipstick on the Obama pig. They are creating a self fulfilling prophesy of increasing poll numbers while trying to make the case that Obama can win in 2012 like Bill Clinton won in 1996... The facts about 1996 do not bear out what the pundits are trying to sell us. In 1996, votes for Clinton only increased by 700,000 to 45,628,667. ...If the Republican vote had not been split in 1992 and/or 1996 by Perot, Clinton would have lost both elections. Compare Reagan to Clinton. Votes for Reagan actually increased from 43,267,489 in...
