While appearing at Coral Reef High School in Florida, Obama told children to “sit down, take a load off.” He later realized his blunder when he realized the children didn’t have any chairs to sit on.
Texas state senator and rising Democratic star Wendy Davis has admitted to having embellished the facts in her personal history. Yesterday, less than a week after poking holes in her inspiring, up-from-nowhere narrative, the Dallas Morning News reasserted its liberal mala fides by publishing an editorial titled “The Wendy Davis story.” In it the editors wrote:
The bare-bones Wendy Davis story — the one without embellishment — is sufficiently inspiring as a matrix for defying expectations. The daughter of a teenage mother and a teenage mother herself, Davis managed to beat the odds by getting a college education and Ivy League law degree, then launching a political career that’s brought her national adulation.
Reverberating throughout Washington, as well it should, ex-Defense Secretary Robert Gates is blowing the lid on the Obama administration’s total disasters in the foreign policy arena…including the unthinkable that all his war decisions…all his decisions regarding our troops…were based upon political expediency benefiting him alone and NOT on the concept of victory.
Robert Gates worked for every president since Richard Nixon, with the exception of Bill Clinton, and served as Defense Secretary for two years under Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

The featured speakers were Karen and Billy Vaughn whose Navy SEAL son Aaron was killed in the take down of what has now been referred to as call sign Extortion 17.

17 members of SEAL Team 6…the most elite fighting force the world has ever known…the same unit that took out Osama bin-Laden…lost that day in what was the single most deadly day for the US Navy since the war began.
But Mediaite reminds us that not too long ago, then-Senator Joe Biden threatened George W. Bush with impeachment if he engaged in military action without going to Congress first.
Speaking at a meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General on gun violence Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden said that he says what he means, and yes, it gets him in trouble.
“No one’s ever doubted that I mean what I say. The problem is that I tend to say what I mean, and that gets me in trouble – except in Mississippi,” he said.
Georgia native, Newt Gingrich, former 2012 presidential candidate and former Speaker of the U.S. House stated today in a newsletter to members that Chicago had more than 500 gun homicides in 2012 roughly, 19 per 100,000 people.
He also wonders why Vice President Joe Biden does not take his gun commission to the murder capital of the U.S., Chicago. Continue reading
