    President Barack Obama was a guest at the 1991 wedding of ABC senior foreign correspondent and vice presidential debate moderator Martha Raddatz, The Daily Caller has learned. Obama and groom Julius Genachowski, whom Obama would later tap to head the Federal Communications Commission, were Harvard Law School classmates at the time and members of the Harvard Law Review.

    The Actor Who Created Big Bird Makes About $314,000 a Year

    Even Big Bird has to make some money. The Sesame Workshop’s 990 form for the 2010 tax year reveals that Caroll Spinney, the man behind the newsworthy yellow guy and Oscar the Grouch, made $314,072. That’s the most recent form available at Guidestar, which covers the tax year ended June 30, 2011

    Who cares?

    I do. Especially since it made the sentence say something completely different than what I WANTED it to say…..

    The Rasmussen Reports
    In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 49% support to Obama’s 47%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

    This is the second day in a row Romney has led the daily Swing State Survey. Until yesterday, the president had led for 17 of the previous 19 days, and the candidates had been tied twice. This survey is based on findings from the previous seven days, with nearly all of the responses now coming since Romney’s debate win last Wednesday night.

    In 2008, Obama won these states by a combined margin of 53% to 46%, virtually identical to his national margin

    Records Show Call for More Security in Libya, 230 Security Incidences Before Benghazi Attack

    One of them, Eric Nordstrom, claimed in an Oct. 1 email — obtained by Fox News — that he had argued for additional security, citing the “number of incidents that targeted diplomatic missions.”

    However, Nordstrom suggested the U.S. government was eager to give the impression that Libya was safer than it was and declined.

    “These incidents paint a clear picture that the environment in Libya was fragile at best and could degrade quickly,” he wrote. “Certainly, not an environment where post should be directed to ‘normalize’ operations and reduce security resources in accordance with an artificial time table.”

    The account is similar to that of Lt. Col. Andy Wood, the former head of a Special Forces security team who has also agreed to testify. He has given similar accounts in the media of being rebuffed in calling for more security.

    Red Lobster & Olive Garden Cutting Worker’s Hours in Preparation for ObamaCare

    The owner of Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants is putting more workers on part-time status in a test aimed at limiting the impact of looming health coverage requirements.

    Darden Restaurants declined to give details but said the test is only in restaurants in four markets across the country. The test entails increasing the number of workers on part-time status, meaning they work less than 30 hours a week. Under the new health care act, companies will be required to provide health care to full-time employees by 2014. That would significantly boost labor costs for businesses.

    Obama fails to provide aid to victims of Hurricane Isaac, despite 2007 anti-Bush rhetoric on Katrina relief

    President Barack Obama has refused to extend to victims of Hurricane Isaac in Louisiana the same relief he criticized former President George W. Bush for withholding from New Orleans residents in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The move has frustrated state and local politicians and contradicts his own campaign rhetoric about disaster relief from just one election cycle ago.

    In a fiery 2007 speech at Hampton University unveiled last week exclusively by The Daily Caller, Obama excoriated the Bush administration for supposedly refusing to waive requirements of the Stafford Act, which requires disaster victims to repay the federal government for emergency assistance, after Katrina struck the Gulf Coast.

    “What’s happening down in New Orleans?” Obama shouted during the speech, which was recorded at the Virginia university in June of 2007. “Where’s your dollar? Where’s your Stafford Act Money? Makes no sense! It tells me, the people down in New Orleans, they don’t care about as much!”


  • Ratboy

    Just looking at Politifact and these are a few of the whoppers told by Obama rated mostly false to pants on fire in the last week or so.

    Says 50 million people would lose their health insurance if Obamacare is repealed.

    Says Mitt Romney plans to “fire” Big Bird.

    Says Romney invested in a firm that made goods in China that “could have been made here in America.”

    “Under Gov. Romney’s definition … Donald Trump is a small business.”

    Because of Obamacare, “over the last two years, health care premiums have gone up — it’s true — but they’ve gone up slower than any time in the last 50 years.”

    The Lizard King’: A New Administration

    Editor’s note: This is the second in a series of excerpts from the new e-book “The Lizard King: The Shocking Inside Account of Obama’s True Intergalactic Ambitions By An Anonymous White House Staffer,” edited and introduced by Daily Caller writers Jamie Weinstein and Will Rahn. Buy it here now. You can read the first excerpt here. Come back the rest of the week for more.

    The president instituted a pay freeze for the White House staff as he entered office. The detention center at Guantánamo Bay would be closed within in a year, he said, and the Iraq War would be wound down quickly. He signed Lilly Ledbetter and the Recovery Act. The clean energy programs were up and running. Corporate lobbyists were turned away. No-bid contracts were a thing of the past.

    I kept thinking: We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

    Obama spent as much time as he could playing basketball with staffers, security, and military guys. “I make my best decisions from mid-court,” he told a group of us just a week after entering office. “Marrying Michelle, running for Senate, running for president—all mid-court.” And we believed him.

    It was a glorious time.

    “You’ll look out of touch and (gay looking) if you keep it there,” Rahm said. “Mitch McConnell will be on the phone with every reporter in Washington telling them how (gay looking) you look with that (fornacating) peanut farmer looking over you.”

    The president insisted that Carter was a great man, and that he just needed “more time” to accomplish “his great mission.”
    “Listen, a second Carter administration would have been truly momentous,” Obama said. I was actually curious why the president had, seemingly overnight, become so smitten with the generally unloved Carter, but was cut off by Rahm.

    “You’re right, Mr. President,” Rahm said. “A second Carter administration would have been momentous. Momentously (gay looking), at least.”
    Rahm looked around to see if anyone was smiling at his quip. Nobody was, and I really wished he would stop using that word. This side of Rahm—the middle school, towel- snapping bully side of Rahm—was far and away his least attractive quality.

    “Seriously, though, the Carter tribute is not smart,” he said. “Axe will back me up on this, and so will the oppo guy.”
    I nodded. Axelrod shrugged.

    “It’s just an unnecessary complication,” Axelrod said. “It will just weird people out, you know?”

    Obama and Jarrett made and held eye contact for a good five seconds. Both their faces were blank.
    “Fine, we’ll lose the bust,”
    Obama said. “Oh, and also, we’re going to keep the prison at Gitmo open. Cool?”

    Those words, delivered so casually, were my first real indication that the president might turn out to be slightly less than the person we had advertised during the campaign. But it would be much later before I figured out that the president actually had his reasons for making America look bad in the eyes of the world and disappointing his followers, and that keeping Gitmo open was just one small part of that master plan.
