  1. Yikes, Obama hasn’t even arrived yet and the Africans already feel “let down”. It’s going to be a long trip for him. And us. Gonna bookmark the UK papers right now to get “real” coverage :D

  2. “WH officials met with radical Muslim . . . Daily Caller”

    What, does the Daily Caller report on it EVERY time a White House official meets with Obama?

    Oh, you meant a DIFFERENT radical Muslim! Sorry, you should have specifed…

  3. Yesterdays pitiful stunt at Georgetown proves once again that the Emperor has no clothes. Nary a word about climate change/cap and trade for the 2 years preceding the Nov. election. He is lower than a snake’s belly!

    The Carbonated President – WSJ


    “Most striking about this Obama legacy project is its contempt for democratic consent. Congress has consistently rejected an Obama-style “comprehensive” anticarbon energy plan. That was true even when Democrats ran the Senate with a filibuster-proof majority in 2009-2010 and killed his cap-and-trade energy bill. The only legislative justification for Mr. Obama’s new plan is an abusive interpretation of the Clean Air Act, which was last revised in 1990 and never mentions carbon as a pollutant.

    So instead Mr. Obama will impose these inherently political policy choices via unaccountable bureaucracies, with little or no debate. Mr. Obama might have at least announced his war on carbon before the election and let voters have a say. Instead he posed as the John the Baptist of fossil fuels in locales such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia-taking credit for the shale fracking boom he had nothing to do with and running ads attacking Mitt Romney as anticoal.

    Now safely re-elected, Mr. Obama figures he can do what he pleases. The Americans who will be harmed will have to console themselves with 99 weeks of jobless benefits, food stamps and ObamaCare. ”

  4. The SCOTUS decision on DOMA and California’s Prop 8 came too late for inclusion in the headlines here. Now the Obamas can hold Jason Collins’s wedding in the WH. Obama can give him away and the WeeWons can be flower girls.

  5. Regarding meeting with radical muslim at the WH. WH protocol stands — no average American citizen may visit the WH for a tour. But this Administration has opened the doors to those who want to do us harm.
