President Obama Skipped His Intel Brief the Day After the U.S. Ambassador to Libya was Murdered by Terrorists
Marc Thiessen provides a shocker in his Washington Post column: the day after America’s embassy in Cairo was assaulted and the consulate in Benghazi, Libya fell victim to an armed attack that killed four, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, the president once again skipped his intelligence briefing, choosing instead to fly off to Las Vegas to fundraise while the world continued to burn. This after being | Read More »
The American Media Beclowned Themselves Yesterday
Yesterday, as the American consulate in Libya was smoking and the rioters were returning in Egypt, the President of the United States flew off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser while his spokesman was telling the American press corps that yesterday wasn’t really a normal political day. Had it been George W. Bush, the media would, right now, be marching on the White House with | Read More »
Obama Compares His Campaign Volunteers to those Killed at the Embassy in Libya
For all the talk about Mitt Romney being out of touch, you certainly don’t have to look very hard to find examples of President Obama demonstrating just how bad of a tin ear he has. Even worse, for Obama at least, is that his out of touch moments frequently manifest in the worst possible ways. We saw evidence of that earlier this week when Obama | Read More »
Tech at Night: FTC slays the Myspace Beast; Obama planning rule by decree on Cybersecurity
It is done! Privacy is saved in America? The huge looming threat of Myspace has been defeated by FTC! Don’t you feel so much safer now that the dynamic, active regulators of the Obama administration have clamped down on a competitor of Facebook?
Shame on me. Remember when I went with the claim that Anonymous took down GoDaddy? Well, It may have been an opportunistic claim.

Mitt Romney’s remarks (link to video, including questions).
I personally would have been a good deal more cutting, but then I personally would never make it past the tryouts for the auditions for the contest to be President of the United States. The man understands the problem, which is not “Free speech is provocative,” and never mind what those racists in the progressive antiwar movement think.

Mitt Romney Should Raise These Questions
Mitt Romney is in a difficult position. On September 11, 2012, radical Islamists stormed the American Embassy in Cairo, tore down and burned the American flag, and hoisted a black flag associated with Al Qaeda. In Libya, radical Islamists did the same, but also set the embassy on fire, fired rockets, and killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and at least three other State Department employees. The | Read More »
The World is Burning
In the last 24 hours, the U.S. has observed the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks; a violent mob has assaulted the American Embassy in Cairo, ripping down the stars and stripes and attempting to raise an al Qaeda flag in its place (while the embassy staff tweeted their abject apologies); and an organized attack has been carried out on the American consulate in Benghazi, | Read More »
Barack Obama’s cowardly statement on the Libyan embassy assault.
I don’t need the President to tell me that we feel bad about Americans being targeted and murdered. I do need him to tell me how he plans to make sure that nobody sane ever, ever, EVER thinks to do it again. That’s Barack Obama’s job; and right now, he’s flunking it.

President Obama Has Missed Half His Daily Intelligence Briefings
As North African blows up this morning it is worth reminding you of Marc Thiessen’s column from two days ago. President Obama is touting his foreign policy experience on the campaign trail, but startling new statistics suggest that national security has not necessarily been the personal priority the president makes it out to be. It turns out that more than half the time, the commander | Read More »
The President and the Arab Fall
Oh if only Islamic radicals would riot over the HHS contraception mandate and gay marriage. If they did, the Administration would fall all over themselves to apologize. Don’t believe me? Consider yesterday’s events well chronicled by Jeff Emanuel. A group in the United States exercised their first amendment rights, which set off rioting yet again among the religion of peace. Egyptians stormed the American Embassy, | Read More »
Happening Now: Attempted Assassination in Somalia. Also, American Ambassador to Libya is Killed. Violent mobs assault U.S. Embassies in Egypt and Libya on 9-11.
UPDATE at 7:19 a.m. on September 12, 2012, by Erick: While all of this is going on in Egypt in Libya, look a bit to the Southeast and Al Jazeera is reporting an attempted assassination of Somalia’s newly elected President while he was meeting with Kenya’s foreign minister. UPDATE at 7:03 a.m. on September 12, 2012, by Erick: American Ambassador to Libya and career member | Read More »
Barack Obama does the Mother Of All Punchings Down.
The President went after 2016: Obama’s America. Perhaps the president was hoping 2016: Obama’s America would come and go unnoticed like so many other political documentaries. But seven weeks after its opening, the film is still going strong, prompting Barack Obama to finally respond, which he has done through a lengthy entry at his campaign’s website that calls the movie “a deliberate distortion” of his | Read More »
The Definition of Stupid: Another Legislative Surrender
Get ready for another weak ground out into a double play in the upcoming budget battle. Shortly before the August recess, we reported that Republicans planned to pass a clean 6-month CR which funds Obamacare and appropriates $1.047 trillion in spending – commensurate with Obama’s request instead of the House budget. The idea behind the “deferment” strategy was twofold; to delay the major battles to | Read More »
Bill Clinton’s Bounce: How Media Conventional Wisdom Works
Polling is reflecting Bill Clinton’s bounce out of the Democratic National Convention. You wouldn’t know that if you listened to most of the media, but the bounce belonged not to Obama, but to Clinton. Fortunately for the GOP, Barack Obama is no Bill Clinton. It must privately grate on Barack Obama. The media narrative is all about Barack Obama. He’s going to win. He’s ahead. | Read More »
Tech at Night: Anonymous hackers still lie, Obama administration still plans to ignore Congress
Out of control. It seems like only defeating Barack Obama in an election will truly stop this administration. Sure, for now they’ve been scared off of the Internet Tax, but with Net Neutrality and the Cybersecurity Executive Order still brewing, the Obama administration has more power grabs up its sleeves than we should ever have allowed.
