Did Obama Just Have A “Read My Lips” Moment?



Easy answer? Yes…

Originally posted on cosmoscon:

We’re all familiar with this clip of George H W Bush in 1988:

It’s dangerous to make absolute statements like that in politics and it’s absolutely foolish for a Republican POTUS to make these bold statements when he had a Democrat controlled House and Senate to ‘work’ with for the next 4 years.

As we all know, in 1990 Bush had to compromise with the House and Senate and raise existing taxes. True, this compromise didn’t result in ‘new’ taxes but we all knew what Bush meant and the MSM had a field day with that 1988 clip. After that debacle, Bush didn’t have a chance in the 1992 Presidential election.

Fast forward to today – Did Obama just have his own “Read My Lips” moment?

Trey Gowdy’s 7 questions for Media regarding #Benghazi…



You’ve just gotta love Trey Gowdy…..

By Tom Quiner

Congressman Trey Gowdy runs the House Select Committee trying to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi.

He posed 7 questions to the media:

“I’m not telling you how to do your job, but I’m going to ask you some questions, and if you can’t answer these questions, then I’ll leave you to draw whatever conclusions you want to draw about whether the media has provided sufficient oversight:

  • Can you tell me why [Ambassador] Chris Stevens was in Benghazi that night he was killed? Do you know? Does it bother you whether or not you know why Chris Stevens was in Benghazi?
  • Do you know why we were the last flag flying in Benghazi, after the British had left and the Red Cross had been bombed?
  • Do you know why requests for additional security were denied? Do you know why an ambassador asking for more…

SURPRISE! Same Media That Obsessed Over Bush’s Approval Rating Ignores Obama’s

Media bias? What media bias?

MRC Study: TV Buries the Bad News on Obama’s Collapsing Polls

In Bush’s case, the networks routinely highlighted his falling approval ratings to illustrate his political weakness, and regularly cited polling data showing public disapproval of policies such as the Iraq war. This year, even as President Obama has suffered his own political meltdown, the networks have spared him from such coverage.

The numbers don’t lie. Hat tip to Hot Air.

Krauthammer: “It’s a Coalition of the Unwilling because OBAMA is Unwilling” (Video)



Dr. K nails it again……

Originally posted on Nice Deb:

Charles Krauthammer offered his take on the Regime’s pathetic failure to gather a broad, international coalition - unlike George W. Bush who was able to gather a coalition of 49 nations to provide material military support including troops, intelligence cooperation, material, logistics, ground facilities, and financial assistance” for the Iraq War in 2003.

“The reason it’s a coalition of the unwilling is because Obama is unwilling,” Dr. K said. “And everyone knows it. He telegraphed it in his speech, they all understand he’s ambivalent, They’ve all looked at what he did in Afghanistan and Libya, and they say that if the leader of this coalition is ambivalent and reluctant, why should we join?”

Megyn Kelly investigates why Brendan Tevlin case not being treated as terrorism



Scary stuff…

Originally posted on Twitchy:

#BrendanTevlin was finally trending on Twitter last Friday as his story was picked up by Fox News (while still being ignored by the rest of the mainstream media).

The story of 19-year-old college student Tevlin, who was gunned down in his family Jeep on his way home from a friend’s house, was discussed by Fox News’s Megyn Kelly and Judge Andrew Napolitano on Monday night’s “Kelly File.”

Evidence links Tevlin’s shooting to Ali Muhammad Brown, who told investigators that Tevlin’s slaying was a “just kill” and who answered yes when asked by a detective if the alleged murders were “done for…

Benghazi Bombshell: Clinton State Department Official Reveals Details of Alleged Document Review

As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

According to former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell, the after-hours session took place over a weekend in a basement operations-type center at State Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. This is the first time Maxwell has publicly come forward with the story.

ALWAYS: A good word for hard times

Friends:  It’s been a rough week. I won’t go into details here, but if you’re a praying person, I would appreciate your prayers, especially for our Lucy. In the midst of everything, I don’t have many helpful words. But I happened to sign up for iDisciple last week, and this morning I read a really solid piece of writing from Stasi Eldredge.  (She and husband John are both wonderful writers. Look them up!)

Here is her devotional post entitled “Always”.  I’d just link to it, but I’m not sure you can get to it since it’s subscriber content. I couldn’t find it on her blog, as it is obviously not brand new. But since this past week was also the 9/11 anniversary, this piece seems especially appropriate.

I stopped getting the newspaper years ago because my heart couldn’t take it.  I would open it up and weep.  I didn’t know my tears were intercession, but they were.  They were then and they are now.

It’s been a week.  2:50pm a week ago today the first bomb went off, exploding our sense of safety and so much more.  I find myself today so very sad.  How are you doing?  My prayer is that my tears and yours join in the intercession for the many to aid in their healing and to bring the presence of Jesus.
