When you tell someone something and they deny it, either they are A) culpable B) uninformed or C) both. The Democratic Party and the uninformed followers who repeat them are just a step away from destroying our culture financially. And guess who would be there to pick up the mess? –PBN
President Obama has not taken a serious question from the White House press corps in nearly seven weeks, a remarkable string that points to a campaign-style White House operation that is seeking to insulate the candidate from tough cross examination.
The last substantive question Obama took from a White House reporter was during a June 20 press conference following the G20 Summit in Los Cabos, Mexico. Obama allowed only six questions during the event, which was nearly guaranteed to keep him out of political hot water as the focus was on foreign policy.
Since then, Obama has held no press conferences, given no interviews to White House reporters, and taken no questions at the White House events he has held where reporters have been present.
Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus called Sen. Harry Reid a “dirty liar” this morning on “This Week” for accusing presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney of not paying taxes for ten years.
“As far as Harry Reid is concerned, listen, I know you might want to go down that road. I’m not going to respond to a dirty liar who hasn’t filed a single page of tax returns himself. (He) complains about people with money but lives in the Ritz Carlton here down the street,” Priebus said. “So if that’s on the agenda, I’m not going to go there. This is just a made-up issue. And the fact that we’re going to spend any time talking about it is ridiculous.”
ABC News senior political correspondent Jonathan Karl called Reid’s accusations “outrageous.”
“It’s one of the most outrageous charges that I’ve ever seen actually made on the Senate floor,” said Karl. “He (Romney) paid taxes. It’s a completely false charge. But Reid loves it. The Democrats love this. Because no matter how much he digs in, no matter how much he gets attacked, you know, here or by Jon Stewart, or anywhere else, it gets the story out there again and again.”
Yes it sure does get the story out there, it tells WE The People just what liars the Democrat party are.

When President Obama talked about Mitt Romney in recent months, “aides picked up a level of anger he never had for (Hillary) Clinton or (John) McCain,” writes Politico’s Glenn Thrush in Obama’s Last Stand, which will be out on Aug. 20.
A forthcoming e-book discusses how personal the presidential race has become.
Thrush notes that Obama “began campaign preparations feeling neutral about Romney, but like the former governor’s GOP opponents in 2008 and 2012, he quickly developed a genuine disdain for the man,” according to excerpts released by Politico.
Of course, we suspect that Romney’s views of Obama may be somewhat similar. Obama’s Last Stand is the latest in a series of e-books on the campaign produced by Politico. Writes Thrush of the president’s anti-Romney views:
Obama is considering an Executive Order for his Cybersecurity Act that was voted down by both Republicans and Democrats. The bill mustered 52 votes in the Democrat lead Senate, well short of the 60 needed to overcome a filibuster.
The White House hasn’t ruled out issuing an executive order to strengthen the nation’s defenses against cyber attacks if Congress refuses to act.
“In the wake of Congressional inaction and Republican stall tactics, unfortunately, we will continue to be hamstrung by outdated and inadequate statutory authorities that the legislation would have fixed,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in an emailed response to whether the president is considering a cybersecurity order. “Moving forward, the President is determined to do absolutely everything we can to better protect our nation against today’s cyber threats and we will do that,” Carney said.
The White House has emphasized that better protecting vital computer systems is a top priority. The bill would have encouraged private companies and the government to share information about cyber threats and would have required critical infrastructure operators to meet minimum cybersecurity standards.
Senate Republicans, led by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), worried the bill would burden businesses with unnecessary and ineffective regulations.
Jim Lewis, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, explained that Obama could enact many of the core provisions of the Cybersecurity Act through executive order.
Obama verses Romney on international trips as presidential hopefuls:
Here is the media’s double standard when it comes to Barack Obama and any conservative candidate who might get in his way. ABC, CBS and NBC all glorified obama’s week long trip in 2008 and they used war on words against Romney’s week long trip.
Romney netted 53 minutes worth of stories from the three networks. In comparison, Obama’s 2008 tour through the Middle East and Europe resulted in 92 minutes.
Candidate Obama 2008: Candidate Obama said “we must stand up for Israel’s legitimate right to defend itself” he stressed participation in the peace process, he says he will not in any way shirked emphasis on Israel’s need for security or America’s obligation to help them. Senator Obama has addressed also AIPAC and has pledged America’s commitment in front of them. Mr. Obama advocates a tough stance on Israel’s enemies, especially Hamas, preferring to strengthen those among the Palestinian moderates, and pushing for those who continue to work with Israel’s enemies (namely Egypt) to discontinue these practices. Senator Obama has criticized the Palestinians for not living up to their end of the bargain in the peace process.
Obama became the first presidential candidate ever to publicly back the traditional Israeli position that Jerusalem remain forever undivided under Israel rule. “Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel.
In July of 2008, Barack Obama’s international tour took him to Israel where, in an attempt to show toughness over Iran, the then-senator incorrectly told reporters that he was a member of the Senate Banking committee. (Obama erroneously referred to “his” committee’s calls for divestment from Iran.) There was no outcry and no reporting of “errors” or “gaffes,” at least on the three broadcast evening newscasts.
Candidate Romney 2012: “We must lead the effort to prevent Iran from building and possessing nuclear weapons capability. We should employ any and all measures to dissuade the Iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is our fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so.
“In the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded,” Romney continued. “We recognize Israel’s right to defend itself, and that it is right for America to stand with you.”
