    It is too bad there was nobody at the White House to take that 3am call on Benghazi. Maybe they could have saved a life. Instead we have dead Americans who will never get justice. Shame on Clinton/Obama

  • Moncon

    Obama’s impressive win came from those who would rather be lied to than face the truth about their country’s financial situation.

  • Ratboy

    Oh Howard!!!! Yesterday you dissed Ashley Judd and today the Prez!! Did Tingles Mathews stop sleeping with you?? What happened?? :shock: :lol:

    Howard Fineman Admits To S.E. Cupp: Obama’s ‘Passive Aggressive’ Negotiating Style On Budget Not Leadership

    Sad even ratings get politicized.

    Obama’s budget would add almost $1 trillion in debt every two years

    White House spokesman Jay Carney on Monday excused the president’s unprecedentedly late budget submission as a bargaining tactic, and he called for large annual deficits until at least 2023.

    “The broader effort underway here is to try to achieve through the budget process, a compromise” that would stabilize the federal government’s deficit at roughly 3 percent of the nation’s economy, he told reporters during the midday press conference.

    The nation’s GDP is roughly $15.1 trillion, so a 3 percent deficit goal would accept roughly $450 billion in new debt each year. Under Obama’s tenure, the federal debt has risen $6 trillion since 2009, up to almost $17 trillion.

    Carney is “making very clear Americans should not expect a budget that ever balances from this president,” said a midday tweet from Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Majority Leader John Boehner.

    By law, the White House’s detailed annual request for routine and novel agency funding for the next year must be submitted to Congress by the first Monday of February.

    But Obama has instead delayed his budget request until after the GOP-led House and the Democratic-led Senate have introduced and debated detailed, multi-year budget plans.

    The delay gives him and his allies an opportunity to criticize GOP budget plans, while shielding himself from similar criticism.

    Obama’s budget request may also exclude budget-balancing proposals that the president has repeatedly says he would support. The proposals include a revised formula for calculating inflation’s impact on the Consumer Price Index. Over 10 years, the measure could trim the federal government’s budget by a few hundred billion dollars.

    The president’s delay in submitting a budget may lead to yet another fiscal crisis late in 2013 if Obama’s push for tax increases derails the Congress’ complex budget deal-making.

    During the last four years, the government’s annual budgets have been finalized in top-level crisis talks between the White House and the Hill, partly because Democrats in the Senate have declined to propose or debate a budget.

    Guns and Gear

    Why the Vz-58 is better than the AK-47

    By Andrew Tuohy, LuckyGunner.com

    You’ve probably heard of the AK-47, even if they’ve never seen or held a gun in person. Odds are, even if you’re a “gun person” you probably haven’t heard of the Vz-58, the Czechoslovakian answer to the AK-47 in the 1950?s.

    Essentially every other country behind the Iron Curtain had to fall in line with the Soviets and use an indigenously produced AK-47 variant, but the Czechs’ long history of firearms production gave them some leeway. They had to adopt the 7.62×39 cartridge, but were allowed to develop their own firearm design.

    Exclusive: Koch Responds to Rumors of Tribune Company Purchase

    LA Weekly on Tuesday published a story about a rumored purchase of the Tribune Company by the Koch Brothers.

    The latest rumor about the next owner of the L.A. Times, which is for sale, is a doozy. A bombshell. It’s a doozy wrapped in a bombshell exploding inside a Drudge siren.

    Multiple sources tell L.A. Weekly that Charles and David Koch — the infamous right-wing billionaire brothers — are considering an offer on either the Tribune Co. newspaper group, which includes the L.A. Times, the Chicago Tribune and the Baltimore Sun or the entire Tribune Co., which includes more than 20 stations like WGN and KTLA Channel 5.
