Last night the O’Reilly Factor picked up the Hillary Clinton for President drumbeat (as predicted).
In a ‘Talking Points Commentary’ Monica Crowley highlighted a list of ways Hillary could feasibly make a run for the Oval Office in 2012. Crowley thinks that among other things Hillary knows that the nation is suffering from “buyer’s remorse” when it comes to President Obama and will “want to make it up to her.” Says Crowley:
Hillary will create the illusion that she is the more responsible choice. She’ll position herself as the adult who can fix Obama’s messes. She’ll offer herself as the safe harbor for disillusioned Dems. Oh you had your fun on that Obama joy ride and now Mama is here to clean it up.

Election watchdogs have fined Joe Biden's 2008 presidential campaign more than $219,000 for sloppy bookkeeping and accepting excessive contributions, including a discounted flight on a private jet.
The audit was released Friday by the Federal Election Commission.
It determined that the Biden campaign accepted an illegal corporate contribution in the form of a round-trip flight between New Hampshire and Iowa in June 2007 for three people. The Biden campaign paid GEH Air Transportation $7,911 for the first-class airfare, but regulators say the campaign should have paid the charter rate of $34,800.
The FEC also found that the Biden campaign received at least $106,000 in donations that were over the limit, and the campaign was ordered to pay the U.S. Treasury more than $85,000 for stale-dated checks.
Liberals Slam David Vitter For Alleged Rachel Maddow Smear When Maddow Herself Said She Looks Like A Dude
I guess just add this to ever-growing list of repellent things Sen. David VitterRachel Maddow “looking like a woman.” has done while in elected office. While appearing on a conservative radio show out of New Orleans yesterday, Vitter had a good laugh with the hosts over an old picture of
“Must have been a long time ago,” cracked Vitter. Cue uproarious laughter. Funny stuff, though perhaps not all that surprising considering Vitter’s historylater issued a (very short) apology to Maddow. with “women’s issues.” Vitter, meanwhile,Dear Rachel,
Regarding my remark during a radio conversation today, I apologize.
The hosts made their comment and I obviously chimed in. While we do not usually agree on the issues, I do not think you deserved that comment.
More fake "OUTRAGE!" from the Left esp. when you consider that Rachel Maddow herself has admitted to looking like a dude. And yeah she looks like dude, so what? Vitter played himself by even apologizing.

The Dallas Tea Party on Thursday accused MSNBC hosts Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, and Dylan Ratigan of racism.
Since January 20, 2009, all four of these men have criticized Barack Obama for one reason or another.
As MSNBC has been one of the strongest proponents of the despicable concept that anyone critical of this president must be a racist, DTP's founder Phillip Dennis believes the same should be true for that network's employees.
According to Dennis, the idea for this video came after Obama's speech to the nation on June 15 concerning the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Readers are reminded that numerous media members actually expressed disappointment with the President in the days that followed.
Turning the tables.
GOP Sen. Scott Brown is blasting comedian Kathy Griffin after she jokingly referred to his daughters as “prostitutes” on her new Bravo reality show.
The segment, which aired Tuesday, featured CNN’s Dana Bash and John King quizzing Griffin on her political knowledge during a recent visit to Washington. When King held up a photo of Brown, Griffin identified him as “Scott Brown, who is a senator from Massachusetts and has two daughters that are prostitutes.” Within seconds, a "brief message from Bravo's legal team" scrolls up the screen: "Scott Brown's daughters ARE NOT prostitutes!!!"
On Thursday, Brown trashed Griffin and Bravo for the low blow. “People can call me any name they want, but families are off limits,” the senator said in a statement quoted by Politico. “I love my daughters, Ayla and Arianna, very much, and any parent would be proud to have them as children. Kathy Griffin and Bravo ought to be ashamed of themselves.”
It should be noted that Brown’s daughters are indeed professionally accomplished, and employed in completely legal fashion. Arianna, 19, is a pre-med student at Syracuse University and part-time model. Ayla, 21, is a singer who appeared on "American Idol" and is a special correspondent for "The Early Show" on CBS.
Remember it was Barack Obama who time and time again said that families should be "off limits" when criticizing politicians. But of course. Kathy Griffith has been making quite a name for herself "joking" on conservatives and Republicans, Levi Johnston was stupid enough to let her use him as a pawn to bash Sarah Palin, Griffith continues to go after Elisabeth Hasselbeck whenever she gets the chance and now she has the gall to smear Scott Brown's daughter in a way that typifies the average liberal lowlife. Good for Senator Brown to call her out for the buffoon she is.
A key US senator urged Attorney General Eric Holder Thursday to swiftly try the accused 9/11 co-plotters in military tribunals, decrying plans for a civilian trial as a "logistical nightmare."
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who co-authored a draft bill to block any public funding to try the alleged mastermind of the 2001 attacks, Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, and his four co-accused within the US federal court system, said it was "unacceptable" that Holder had yet to decide where to hold the trial.
President Barack Obama's administration initially announced plans to prosecute the men in New York, just steps from Ground Zero, site of the World Trade Center destroyed in the attacks which killed almost 3,000 people.
But the plans were met with howls of protest from lawmakers and New York residents, prompting the federal government to backtrack, saying its decision was under review.
Graham recalled that Holder said in April that "New York is not off the table" as a trial venue for the group of five accused plotters just steps from where the World Trade Center and its world-renowned Twin Towers once stood, with a decision expected "in a number of weeks."

Surprises come unexpectedly sometimes.
On Fox News Channel's July 11 broadcast of "Geraldo at Large," an aggressive host Geraldo Rivera took on chairman of the New Black Panthers, Malik Zulu Shabazz over his political gestures.
"It is absolutely pathetic, it is so old-fashioned," Rivera said. "What are you trying to do? Are you trying to be the big, bad nightmare?"
Shabazz, leader of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) rattled off one of his causes, Oscar Grant, but he leveraged him to make a case for reparations.
"I'm trying to help Oscar Grant, who was shot down in cold blood by a white cop and I am trying to redeem, I am trying to redeem - put that camera back right over here, I am trying to redeem -- and black people who have been lynched, raped or mobbed and have not been given reparations."
Rivera responded to his call.
"You insult [his] memory when you engage in your hateful rhetoric," Rivera said. "I think that reparations is just like these welfare programs that have turned a generation into nothing but unproductive people."
With the first wave of analysis on the NAACP’s declaration against the Tea Party for allegedly tolerating racism among its members over yesterday, commentators are now trying to sift through the greater political repercussions of the attack. On today’s Factor, Bill O’Reilly had Fox News analyst Dick Morris on to explore what the dispute means for the Democratic Party, and he called it a “stupid” strategy that is “ghettoizing Obama.”
Morris explained that he saw the goal of the strategy, from the position of the Democrats, to rally the party’s minority base, but that it would backfire because it would take away President Obama’s image as a post-racial figure for the NAACP to stand up against the Tea Party. He didn’t quite explain what he meant by “ghettoizing,” or why the trouble he predicted would spread directly to the President, but context clues give a pretty fair approximation. He said of the anti-Tea Party declaration:“It’s designed to raise the intensity of black and Latino turnout, like Rove was saying, but they forget that the rest of the country is watching. And it’s ghettoizing Obama. They’ve spent two years, three years, making him a post-racial president, and now they’re undoing it all in a couple of hours. It’s stupid.”
Brilliant analogy by Dick Morris considering how much we've seen Barry run away from dealing with race. In fact, the irrelevant NAACP is already backing off its "racist!" talk.

Listen, these two could either be con artists who deserve each other or a young couple who made a few mistakes, learned from them and now are genuinely interested in attempting to pursue a life together--either way, you hope they do what's best for their child.Ah, young love. After weeks of rumors, Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston tell Us Weekly they are getting married — with or without the approval of the bride's mother, Sarah Palin.
The pair say they reconnected about three months ago while working out a custody agreement for their 18-month-old son, Tripp. “I really thought we were over,” Johnston, 20, tells the magazine, which puts the formerly star-crossed lovers on the cover. But after a walk, Bristol says, she was stunned how different her former fiancé was. Later, Johnston texted her: “I miss you. I love you. I want to be with you again.” “I was in shock,” says Bristol, 19.
According to the magazine, Johnston and Palin secretly got engaged two weeks ago. Perhaps that explains the public apology that Johnston issued last week via People magazine, for lying about the Palin family. (No word yet on what celebrity periodical will be catering the reception, but our money is on OK!)
UPDATE: Palin Family Responds To Engagement News
Did Press Secretary Robert Gibbs know he was about to set off a firestorm this Sunday when he “stated the obvious” to David Gregory that there “are enough seats in play” for the GOP to take the House this November? Chances are, yes. This administration if far too media savvy to think a quote like that would do anything but set off a firestorm. Their motivation for doing so, however, remains unclear.
I’ve noted in earlier posts I thought this was the administration’s subtle attempt to have its cake and eat it too. Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher thinks this was “stealth attempt to energize the Democratic base, and all those Obama voters who said “Mission: Accomplished” after he was elected.” Which also makes sense — a lot of ink has recently been devoted recently to the lack of enthusiasm in Obama’s base.
One person who was apparently energized by Gibb’s comments was Nancy Pelosi, who apparently called Gibbs “politically inept” during Tuesday night’s House Democratic Caucus meeting. From CQPolitics:Things heated up as Pelosi jumped in and blasted Gibbs for making “politically inept” comments, according to one source…“It was bad,” another source said. “She was like: ‘I don’t appreciate it. I don’t know who this guy is. I’ve never met him before. And he’s saying that we’re going to lose the House.’”
Funny that Pelosi would say that she doesn't know who the smug, condescending and arrogant Robert Gibbs even is, thus no surprise that Gibbs is now backpedaling.
First of all I like Kirsten Powers, she's long been an articulate voice of reason as far as Democrat pundits go (reason enough for most within the Left to hate on her) as Kirsten's never shown any signs of Bush Derangement Syndrome and while she'll defend her party when she has to, she's not afraid to call out liberals on their sheer stupidity and hypocrisy. But in this epic battle (something you'd never see on the resident echo chambers that are the Olbermann or Maddow shows, hence their low ratings) Powers clearly got flustered by Kelly's attempt to bully her into agreeing with her view on this whole Black Panther drama and who can blame her? Of course, there will be those on the Left who will say this is what Powers gets for going on FOX, but I've never seen the normally fair and reasoned Kelly bully a guest like this (much less threaten to cut off their mike), which makes me think that there's personal animus going on between these two. Still, either way it's the kind of theatre you can only get on FOX.

An exchange like this would only be incredulous to a liberal. After all it's the Left that loves to make the ridiculous claim that FOX News is nothing but an arm of the GOP. But anyone who actually watches FOX (which most liberals don't) knows full well that FOX not only invites plenty liberal pundits on air (something Krazy Olbermann never does with conservatives), but in making "fair and balanced" their slogan, they prove it by consistently presenting both sides of the debate, esp. O'Reilly (and that's why Bill remains on top).
As for Palin, if she going to run for president one day, she needs to put her ego aside, come more prepared and go on O'Reilly more because Bill isn't going to let her get away with vague, conservative buzzwords on how to handle tough issues--anyone who watches "The O'Reilly Factor" every night knows that. In other words, debating O'Reilly on key policy issues can only benefit Palin's credibility and make her more appealing to independents who are running as far as away from Barack Obama as possible.
Nearly 6 in 10 Americans say they have "just some" or no confidence in President Obama to make the right decisions for the country, and they give even lower marks to congressional Republicans and Democrats, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll conducted July 7-11.The loons should please keep blaming Bush and FOX News because clearly the strategy is working.
Fifty-seven percent of those polled put themselves in the "just some" or "none at all" columns as far as their trust in Obama, while 43 percent say they have a great deal or good amount of confidence in him. That's a dip since January, when 53 percent said they had little or no confidence in Obama and 47 percent said they did.
Real Estate and media mogul Mort Zuckerman raised eyebrows all over yesterday with the claim on Fox that he "helped write one of [Obama's] speeches," and his subsequent refusal to go into it right now.
Among those with reason to be puzzled, a White House source tells me, were Obama's speechwriters, Jon Favreau and Ben Rhodes. Neither "has ever met or spoken to Mort Zuckerman" and the two have "been closely involved in every speech the President has given since 2005," said the official.
Zuckerman has met President Obama a few times and no doubt encountered other Administration officials, and he could well have suggested a theme to the president or another aide. But the question of what he "helped write" remains a bit of a mystery.
Zuckerman owns the local New York Daily News, which I read every day and to be fair has a somewhat balanced editorial position. Yet, the NYDN has featured sports columnist Mike Lupica's decidedly leftist, blame-Bush-for-everything-wrong-with-the-planet rants for a few years now (it's gotten to the point that as much I respect Lupica as a sportswriter, I don't read anything he writes on politics anymore) and does compete with the more conservative New York Post for readership. Still a shock that Zuckerman would admit to helping Barry write a speech or two, there's going to be some repercussions from this, you can bet on that.
Earlier today, First Lady Michelle Obama gave the keynote speech NAACP’s annual convention. Her speech was met with enormous applause, unsurprising considering she is basically the personification of everything the organization has fought for in its 101-year history. However, the NAACP would like all of its members to know that their work is not yet finished. They plan on rejuvenating the base by voting tomorrow on a resolution to condemn the Tea Party.
The resolution (which is expected to pass) will condemn the Tea Party movement for using racial epithets at rallies and allegedly threatening black members of Congress during the Health Care debates.From ABC News:“‘We’re deeply concerned about elements that are trying to move the country back, trying to reverse progress that we’ve made,’ NAACP spokeswoman Leila McDowell told ABC News. “We are asking that the law-abiding members of the Tea Party repudiate those racist elements, that they recognize the historic and present racist elements that are within the Tea Party movement.”
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, in coordination with 170 other groups, including labor unions, is planning a protest march in Washington, D.C., Oct. 10 as the next step in building momentum against the Tea Party.”

"I've been is his house" is no different than the common "one of my best friends is black" line white bigots use when trying to get a pass on racism. But then Whoopi Goldberg is the same black woman who had no problem with then-boyfriend Ted Danson dressing up in blackface as a joke some years back and who can forget Goldberg coming to the defense of child rapist Roman Polanski ("It wasn't 'rape rape'") recently? Indeed, Whoopi's love for white men behaving badly holds no bounds.Whoopi Goldberg spoke up today in support of Mel Gibson. Faint support to be sure…but support nonetheless. On The View this morning Goldberg said she was unwilling to call Gibson a racist, despite the offensive and abusive language he has been caught on tape using. Said Goldberg:You can say he’s being a bonehead but I can’t sit and say that he’s a racist having spent time with him in my house with my kids. I can’t say it and so I really just need to say that. I don’t like what he’s done. Make no mistake.At which point Joy Behar asked Goldberg to explain Gibson’s anti-semitic remarks to police officers a few years agoDrunks say stupid stuff to people all the time because they’re drunk. They’re out of control. They are not thinking they are idiotic. That’s why I don’t like alcohol. I can’t say anything about that because I know what people are like when they’re drunk. This rant, I don’t think he’s drunk on this rant.When Joy Behar pointed out that plenty of people get drunk and don’t use that language and moreover, perhaps Gibson is the living example of in vino veritas, Goldberg responded that she didn’t think Gibson was drunk in this instance but that’s he’s an asshole. Which, if you’ve listened to the tapes you know is a rather large understatement.
Put me down as skeptical on this one. Fox News interviews Gigi Gaston, a Democrat who produced a new documentary, We Will Not Be Silent 2008 that alleges irregularities in the 2008 Democratic primaries committed by the Barack Obama campaign. Gaston accuses Obama and his team of stealing the election from Hillary Clinton through voter fraud, intimidation, and dirty tricks (via The Right Scoop):
The allegations appear to be entirely confined to caucus states, which is one of the reasons I’m skeptical. Caucuses are bare-knuckled brawls where the parties make the rules and the campaigns routinely and viciously fight over them. I have no trouble believing that Team Obama played hardball and cut as many corners as they could without getting caught. What I have trouble believing is that Hillary Clinton wasn’t doing the exact same thing in these states. After all, Hillary was hardly a babe in the woods. The Clinton Machine had been fighting these battles since Obama was in high school. Now we’re suddenly to believe that they were manning the Good Ship Lollipop in 2008 and were shocked, shocked to find that caucuses aren’t played by Marquess de Queensbury rules?
Considering how much of a favorite Billary was to win the 2008 Democrat nomination, something like this can't be easily dismissed.
Sarah Palin touches a nerve that the liberal snobs in Hollywood just can't understand, so since they don't have the intellectual capacity to take her on (better yet she just go away), what other choice is left but to belittle and smear her:
‘Actress’ Ellen Page wants to remove the fear, ignorance and lack of intelligence that fills Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney’s mind.
While DiCaprio wants to get into BP’s CEO’s head. Uhm.. because it’s trendy. I think.
If you want a reason to not like Ellen Page.. watch her body language and face as she waxes poetic in her hatred of Palin and Cheney.
It would be hilarious.. if it wasn’t so typical.
To think many conservatives loved Ellen Page when she played the spunky "Juno", but that's how we are, appreciative of talent regardless of a person's political leanings. My guess is that Ellen Page's young, naive head got corrupted when she started hanging around noted Hollywood leftwing idiot Drew Barrymore to make that flop of a film "Whip It".

Republicans could win control of the House of Representatives in elections in November, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs acknowledged on Sunday.
"There is no doubt there are enough seats at play that could cause Republicans to gain control, there is no doubt about that," Gibbs told NBC's "Meet the Press" talk show when asked whether the Democrats would maintain their majority in the House.
All 435 seats in the House are up for grabs in the November 2 election as well as 36 of the 100 seats in the Senate.
President Barack Obama will have a tougher time pushing his political agenda through Congress if Republicans make big gains in November and wipe out Democratic majorities in both the Senate and the House.
Americans have had enough of the lame, liberal excuse concerning what a mess they've had to "inherit". They want and need jobs, secure borders and less taxes. not an administration that's only concerned with promoting and garnering the interests of the Godless Left (20% of their constituents). The time for change is now.
George Will on Sunday accused Barack Obama of being an expert at selling snake oil.
As the Roundtable segment of ABC's "This Week" began, host Jake Tapper asked Will if the President's claim Republicans "are peddling that same snake oil that they've been peddling now for years" will resonate with voters this November.
Will marvelously responded, "No, because he is an expert on snake oil."
"This is the man who said, if we pass the $767 billion stimulus bill, which it turns out costs $862 billion, a $95 million oops, we would have unemployment at 8 percent and no higher, and it went higher," continued Will.
"This is the man who last week was out saying, 'I'm going to give $2 billion, about $2 billion, to two companies to create about 1,600 jobs.' That's $1.5 million per job. That is snake oil" (video follows with partial transcript and commentary:
Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele was absolutely right. Afghanistan is Obama's war and, judging by other recent Democratic ventures in military affairs, isn't likely to turn out well.
It has been idiotically claimed that Steele's statement about Afghanistan being Obama's war is "inaccurate" -- as if Steele is unaware Bush invaded Afghanistan soon after 9/11. (No one can forget that -- even liberals pretended to support that war for three whole weeks.)
