In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. Until the comments on Carney come in, let me post that Elizabeth O’Bagy who started the story of Assad using poison gas was fired by the WSJ today for lying on her resume. She falsely claimed to have a Ph.d from Georgetown University. Both McCain and Kerry have cited her very recently, Kerry calling her Dr. O’Bagy.

    1. in addition to her work for the Institute for the Study of War, O’Bagy is also the political director for the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF), a group that advocates within the United States for Syria’s rebels — a fact that the Journal did not disclose in O’Bagy’s piece.

      In an interview with The Daily Caller, O’Bagy said that despite her title as the group’s political director, she is paid as a contractor.

    2. She was actually fired from the Institute for the Study of War, Julie. Doubt her firing was really about her lack of a doctoral degree. My guess is that it was because her relationship with the Syrian rebels was exposed.

      Knew there was something fishy about her after I watched Neil Cavuto interview her last week. Today, Rush made an observation that Elizabeth O’Bagy must be a very attractive young lady to influence the two old codgers McCain and Kerry. He was right.

    3. The elegance of stupidity is the fact that you do not realize you are a fool until you have been elected.
      And then,.. you are advised to deny it.

    1. Good catch, Denise. He was in such a hurry to get outta there that he forgot why he was there.
      I thought it was odd that he didn’t attend the Ground Zero wreath laying ceremony until I realized it would have been an all-day event. He and the laziest FLOTUS on the planet couldn’t be bothered wasting their time remembering and paying tribute to those lost on 9/11. Ingrates, both of them!
      And besides, he is wearing his CIC hat now.

      1. I think Michelle’s busy packing today, plus she was just on her NYC Broadway vacay Labor Day weekend. Her and Eva Longoria are headed to Wisconsin tomorrow to tell high school kids to drink more water or something.

        I saw some photos of BO packing food at some Day of Service event today, didn’t see Michelle in the photo.

        1. There must be big trouble in River City. These two haven’t spent one day together since the election. She called herself a ‘single mom’ so why not get a divorce and stop the charade. Why are we supporting this welfare queen??? She doesn’t even support her husband! Just want to thank all of the 47 percenters who voted for these parasites!

        2. Poor Gary, he is one actor/singer who REALLY supports the troops! Nothing fake about him. And I say poor Gary because he had to put up with MOTUS.

        1. That’s ok, they can keep MO down in that part of the state. A small slice of blue country for her to push her Moooooooove plan (which some school systems here in WI are starting to pull out of the federal school food plan because of all the wasted food the kids will not eat).

  2. From day one I was surprised everyone bought into this. If I knew this was weak seasoned people should have know. She popped up on Fox early and they failed to vet her properly as well. I think it was Chris Wallace who first called her on it– her financial connections to the non profit group.

    Rather than fault her, which I do, it just exposes what passes for “experts” and who gets credibility. O’Bagy did her research in the field with the rebels and the media and those who wanted to believe there were moderates made it into a “thing”. But she is still young, and ju nior, and should never have been out front. Gen. Keane also from the Inst. of the Study of War also backed her. And said the same. I respect the General but — come on.

    About the Phd thing — I suspect she either quit at the ABD level or is at the ABD level with her research being used as part of her thesis. I could be totally wrong.

    The two young “thangs” that annoy me more than O’Bagy are the two Obama operative and campaign refugees acting as State Dept. spokespeople.

    O’Bagy wasn’t ready for prime time. They used her for political purposes and she allowed herself to be used for personal and political purposes.

  3. Did I just hear Keith laughing openly at that last response? Does Carney really expect us to believe that this abysmal failure in US foreign policy is actually some sort of coup that came about only because of the threat of force that Obama brought to the table? Really?

    1. I didn’t hear the pc but that is the Adminstration’s line on this I think. Whether we believe it or not is irrelevant. They have the LIVs and soon every liberal loon will be towing the party line.

      Truth was sacrificed at the Obama ceremony with the Greek columns. And what you and I think doesn’t matter.

      Carney is not a Press Secretary. He is a liar — that is his job.

      1. I heard they had to remove the “who to blame” dart board from Blarney’s office, because after removing all the sections of Bush, Congress, Secret Service, all that was left was select the third person who walked into the WH that morning.. blame them.

    2. Owen,
      Rule 1 at this White House:
      Anything good that comes about was planned and scheduled, and the right thing to do.

      Anything bad is obviously the Republicans’/Tea-Party’s/Bush’s/the Climate’s/the World’s/FoxNews’/etc’s fault.

      Rule 1 abbreviated…
      Good thing…that was us, baby!
      Bad thing…blame them!

  4. Several newspapers are reporting that Rev Jeremiah Wright’s daughter along with 12 other democrats are being charged with embezzelment over 16 million dollars of federal monies that was supposed to go to charities etc. A few of them have already pleaded guilty.

    1. I’ve seen that story, no really big coverage nationally of course. Stealing from charities should be automatic life sentences those lowlifes. Especially with our money (gov’t grants).

      1. Golf partner and BFF to the Obamas – Eric Whitaker is also on the list.

        May 12, 2012
        Also on Monday, White House Dossier reported that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded the UHI a $5.9 million taxpayer grant.

        The UHI was originally inspired by a program created by Michelle Obama when she was a highly paid executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center. She was involved in creating the UHI as a means of pushing low-income Chicagoans with non-urgent ailments away from the university’s emergency room and toward neighborhood clinics.

        Whitaker now leads that project.
