An “alarmed” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) wrote to President Barack Obama on Wednesday and demanded an answer on what Obama meant when he said he would have “more flexibility” on missile defense following the November elections.
Obama’s comments, captured on a hot mic Monday, quickly became the buzz of his two-day trip to Seoul for the Nuclear Security Summit. The president was overheard telling Russian Dmitry Medvedev that he needs “space” to deal with missile defense and that he would have “more flexibility” after November.This is the story that Wally and Cedric have been hitting hard on at their sites for two days and Ruth's covered it too:
"Barack's slip and bra and panties"
"THIS JUST IN! WHISPERING TO HIS BOYFRIEND!"
I really think he needs to own up to his attempt to pull the wool over America's eyes.
This is just like in the primaries -- hold it.
Yep, I figured Hillary Is 44 would have something on this and they do:
Obama behind the scenes and Obama behind a TelePrompTer says two different things. Remember Obama calling the yokels “bitter” and attacking Netanyahu in private and saying he did not really say what he said, in public? He stood up against Exelon in public, he stood up with Exelon in private. And there is healthcare. Remember our article called “Barack Obama Is The Enemy Of Health Care Reform, Parts I and II”?
To say Obama’s health scam is in any way connected to healthcare reform is in many ways the biggest scam of all. The Obamination passed by Obama Dimocrats is really the government of the United States bailing out pharmaceutical companies (Obama is an investor in pharmaceuticals but other than here you rarely if ever hear that mentioned) and health insurance companies by forcing American citizens to buy crap “insurance” from these companies. The U.S. Government itself will act as a Frank Nitti style enforcer in the service of these heath care business companies.
In public Barack Obama attacked Billy Tauzin with campaign ads. In private Barack Obama made a deal with Billy Tauzin which gutted the concept of cost controls and real health care reform.
In public Barack Obama declared that his corrupt “reforms” would “bend the cost curve” downwards on health care costs but in private it was known back in 2009 that the numbers were all phony.
In public Obama declares that he does not raise taxes, that his health care scam is not a tax – in the courts however Barack Obama’s defense of his scam is that indeed it is a tax:
“The IRS will be the enforcer. It’s a tax.
Barack Obama attacked Hillary Clinton and John McCain and Sarah Palin by declaring one or all of them were too divisive whereas he would be “a uniter not a divider”, he would pass health care with a ton of bipartisan votes, they were for taxes and he would not raise taxes for those making less than $250,000, they were for mandates whereas he was against mandates, they were for taxing health insurance plans whereas he was against raising taxes on health insurance plans, they would penalize those who did not buy health insurance he would not…. Lies all.”
Immediately after the Obama health scam passed we discussed the legal issues that would come into play. The issues we discussed then are the issues the Supreme Court will discuss this week. There is the additional new issue of contract law which has captured many minds with its simple yet powerful case.See, it's a pattern with him.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
Alsumaria TV reports Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari declared today that Arab states have sent 12 Foreign Ministers to Baghdad thus far for the Arab League Summit. KUNA adds that Zebari "announced its [Iraq's] full support of the effort exerted by the joint envoy of the United Nations and Arab League Kofi Annan to end crisis and violence in Syria, while stressing its opposition to foreign intervention in the Arab country." The Foreign Ministers are meeting today. Nouri is supposed to deliver a speech today.
AFP notes, "Iraqi President Jalal Talabani has accepted the credentials of the first Saudi ambassador to Baghdad since Saddam Hussein's 1990 invasion of Kuwait, the president's office said on Wednesday." Al Jazeera splashes some reality by explaining:
For the first time since that conflict, Iraq also officially received an ambassador from Saudi Arabia, Fahd bin Abdul Mohsen al-Zaid, though he will function only as a "non-resident" ambassador and is already the Saudi envoy to Jordan.
The summit was not particularly well attended. At least five countries sent foreign ministers, including Bahrain, but both Qatar and Egypt did not send their top diplomats, and others were absent.
Al Rafidayn notes that Nouri's reps began pressing other leaders yesterday on dropping Iraq's debt. Kurdish MP Mahmoud Othman Tweeted today: "We hope that the Arab summit will cancel the debts on Iraq&help it in investments, economic prosperity,as well as fighting terrorism."
