GOP cooks up new excuse to oppose Susan Rice

GOP cooks up new excuse to oppose Susan Rice

Sen. Susan Collins has unveiled the latest reason to oppose Susan Rice as Secretary of State. And it makes even less sense than the previous ones.

At a press conference after meeting with Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Collins said Rice’s response to the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya had an “eerie echo” of the bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998, when Rice served as the head of the State Department’s Africa region.

“She had to be aware of the general threat assessment and of the ambassadors’ request for more security,” Collins, a Maine Republican, said of Rice’s role in that incident.

But a far more devastating terrorist attack occurred three years later, when a different Rice, Condoleezza, served as National Security Adviser to President Bush. Indeed, in August 2001, Bush and Condoleezza Rice received a CIA memo headlined: “Bin [read more]

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner will meet with congressional leaders
Republican Rep. Tom Cole says the House should pass President Obama’s tax plan
Obama is making his case directly to the American people this week
Republicans complain Obama refuses to provide a detailed deficit plan

Washington (CNN) — An angry warning by President Barack Obama delivered well over a year ago foreshadowed his campaign-style approach on Wednesday aimed at pressuring Republicans to compromise and reach a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff.

In remarks at the White House, Obama urged Americans to call, e-mail and tweet their members of Congress to urge immediate passage of his proposal to extend tax cuts for most Americans while allowing rates on the wealthiest 2% to increase to 1990s levels.

“Let’s begin our work with where we agree,” the president said, noting the Senate has passed the measure and that both parties agree on holding down rates for the majority of taxpayers. “If we can get a few House Republicans to agree as well, I’ll sign this bill as soon as the House sends it my way.”

To applause from the White House audience that included those described by organizers as middle-class Americans, the president held up a pen to demonstrate his willingness to sign the law as soon as it reaches his desk.

Meanwhile, a rift among House Republicans on whether to [read more]

Coast Guard Tells BP to Speed Up Containment Pace

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. — The federal government has given BP until the end of the weekend to find ways to speed up efforts to contain huge amounts of oil gushing from a ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico, according to a letter released Saturday, as large globs of brown crude coated Alabama’s white sand beaches.

Coast Guard Rear Adm. James A. Watson sent a letter to BP officials on Friday expressing frustration with the overall pace of the effort and ordered the company to identify ways to expedite the process in the coming says.

“Recognizing the complexity of this challenge, every effort must be expended to speed up the process,” Watson wrote in the letter, sent to Doug Suttles, BP’s chief operating officer.

BP has struggled with several efforts to contain the oil. The latest cap installed on the blown-out well is capturing about 650,000 gallons of oil a day, but large quantities are still spilling into the sea.

Scientists have estimated that anywhere between about 40 million gallons to 109 million gallons of oil have gushed into the Gulf since a drilling rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and triggering the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

The Coast Guard initially sent a letter to BP on Wednesday asking for more details on its plans to contain the [read more]

What about America?

Hey all, I was reading Phil’s article and yes democrats are on the way out, for the most part,  this election. But rather than just simply replacing a Republican for a Democrat or Democrat for a Republican as I have often said, we should hold them all equally accountable.

So many times we get fed up with one party and replace them with another, this needs to stop. We deserve better. We need to get to the root of the problem and fix it there. There has to be an individual accountability.

I won’t lie to you, I am a bit frightened about the whole democratic process ( we currently have a Republic but people still call it a Democratic process) I was looking at the numbers and saw that less than 10% in a lot of instances came out to vote in the primaries. This has me very worried.

We all have a huge stake in our Country and deserve what our Founding Fathers and our families fought so hard to give us. Why is it so many of us would rather watch our favorite sitcom than catch up on the current events or vote for our freedoms?

Why is it so many of us will never miss an American Idol episode and yet despise and cast out a televised political debate? We need political education people. We are fading away. Taxes are consuming us, political figures are betraying us, our freedoms are disappearing, our bankers are making their own rules that we have to pay for, it’s [read more]

Greene’s South Carolina Primary Win Defies Odds, Leaves Democrats Perplexed

Alvin Greene is the proverbial enigma wrapped in a riddle surrounded by mystery.

He’s also the new Democratic candidate for Senate in South Carolina.

Greene admits he had no campaign headquarters, no party support, no contributions, no job, no computer and no cell phone.

Yet, somehow, he managed to pull off the most unlikely of victories, and — unless state Democratic Party officials have their way — will face incumbent Republican Sen. Jim DeMint in November.

Greene’s improbable victory over Democratic candidate Vic Rawl, a former state legislator who officials expected would win, has unleashed a flood of questions, including how the unemployed Army veteran managed to pay $10,400 to get on the ballot before running a “low budget” campaign with no ads, website or fundraising.

Voters also are wondering how the 32-year-old Greene, facing a felony charge for allegedly showing pornographic images to a college student last October, managed to capture 59 percent of the primary vote.

In an interview Thursday with FoxNews.com, Greene said he won by “simple, old-fashioned campaigning” that included traveling the state and speaking to voters “wherever I could find them.”

Greene said his “self-managed” campaign was personally funded and cost well under $2,000. He said he held no “formal events” [read more]

DAVID HARMER WINS!

YEP! You read it right. David Harmer wins the primary. It was no small feat let me tell you. I can’t even tell you how many hours I and my people put in. David had some very formidable competition that hung in there fighting for our votes tooth and nail. It was truly a cage fight. I hope the other candidates will now rally behind David so we can remove McNerney from office and get us some real representation?

I would also like to Congratulate Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina, Ken Vogel, Steve Moore, Tom and Bill Berryhill, Abram Wilson, Abel Maldanado, Jim Willet, Susan Eggman and Jack Sieglock just to name a few. Some may have been unopposed, but still quite the accomplishment none the less.

It’s great to see the people come out and tell Uncle Sam what they think. We should cherish these days. The incumbents however, should fear them if they haven’t been looking out for us.

Thank you all for supporting your candidates and showing up to vote. Now please rally behind the primary winners so we can win in November. Especially rally behind David Harmer so  we can get our district back. Please go to www.HarmerforCongress.com and see how you can help.

GOD bless you all and GOD [read more]

It’s time!

I can almost hear Bruce Buffer with his very unique and distinct voice starting his war cry with those two famous words, “it’s time!” Or even his brother Michael with his “let’s get ready to rumble” cry.

Well in fact,  yes it is, in less than 24 hours we will witness what America thinks about our elected officials and officials to be. In some cases the election will be over, in others it just opens the door for the November general election.

Regardless it’s our responsibility and duty as free men and women to exercise one of our most sacred rights. I mailed mine in a while back and feel confident in my choices. What about you? Have you mailed yours in or will you hit the polls tomorrow? You will vote won’t you? Because remember, we all get the government we deserve. If you stand off to the sidelines and do nothing that’s what you better expect in return.

If you vote for bigger government and more taxes, guess what? You might just get it. Be careful what you vote for. Things that say less government less taxes may actually be just the opposite we need to do our due diligence. And I mean quickly!

Remember there are three types of people in this world: those that stand by and watch things happen, those who make things happen and those who wonder what the hell just happened! By voting for the wrong person or worse yet, not voting at all, you might very well be the person [read more]
