President Obama just gave a live statement from Martha’s Vineyard on the beheading of journalist James Foley.
He condemned the murder, insisted that it was not representative of Islam as many of ISIS’ victims are Muslim, and called to vigilence.
We keep hearing that Obama has checked out and is no longer interested in being president.
But was he ever especially interested in the work of being president? From the very start, what seemed to interest him was giving speeches and campaigning.
For the rest, he appeared to believe that...
What a nightmare Ferguson has become. Five days after the fatal shooting of unarmed teen, Michael Brown, and there’s still no consensus as to what actually happened. If you’re just jumping into this story, check out previous posts here and here.

John Boehner asks the question today (via Drudge):
Here is the answer:
Even the Washington Post seems to have noticed lately that Obama has been attacking a host of strawmen.
And the WaPo is not alone; the NY Times suggested something similar when it wrote, as part of its editorial about Obama’s West Point speech: “In some ways, that was a straw-man argument…”
Today is a travel and meeting day for me.
Have we reached peak strawman…???

Democrats are going all in on the War on Women campaign theme once again, focused this time not on free contraception but on the claim that women make only 77% percent of what men make for comparable work.
It is the centerpiece of the 2014 electoral campaign.

Remember Obama and Deval Patrick’s “just words” similarity?
That’s nothing compared to this hysterical video mash up from The Blaze:
I didn’t watch the State of the Union Address.
Some grassroots activists in Chicago did. Paul McKinley is in the video.
They were not happy, because they know Obama from Chicago. And they are not part of the machine.
I didn’t watch Obama’s State of the Union address last night. Unlike prior years where I had live feeds and extensive coverage.
Instead, I listened to IN-A-GADDA-DA-SOTU.
I did peek at Twitter a couple of times, but not long enough to turn into a pillar of salt.
Reading the headlines and tweets today, there...
I don’t know if I can watch tonight.
The previews are absolutely horrifying.

Obama just completed his speech on NSA reforms.
Below the key video portion of the speech (full text here).
I found this part to be a key dose of reality often lacking from the debate:
First, everyone who has looked at these problems, including skeptics of existing programs, recognizes that we have real enemies...

So Democrats should run on it in 2014.
