ABC News Reporter: "Strong Sense" Someone In The White House Authorized IRS Targeting

“I’ve worked in this town for over 20 years – I’ve worked in the White House and on Capitol Hill – and I can say with a very strong sense of certainty that there are people very close to this president that not only knew what the IRS were doing but authorized it,” ABC News’

Media Portrayal Of Benghazi Controversy Shifted After Election

According to The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, the media’s coverage of the Benghazi controversy shifted after the presidential election: Since House Republicans released an interim report on Benghazi on April 24, 58% of sources in major newspapers have faulted the Obama administration’s response to the attacks, while 42% exonerated

Senator John Hoeven Won't Answer Questions About Running For President

He’s not saying he’s running for President, but he’s not saying he’s not running either. Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg grilled Hoeven about his future political aspirations on Tuesday, but he was repeatedly rebuffed. “I’m just trying to do my job as a senator and see if we can’t get this economy going and growing and

Heidi Heitkamp Can't Afford Too Much Independence

Betsy Woodruff has an article up this morning at National Review covering the balancing act red-state Democrats like Senator Heidi Heitkamp must pull off to both appease their right-of-center constituencies while not angering their national liberal supporters.

Hacked AP Twitter Account Claims White House Bombed, Stock Market Takes A Big Dip

Heitkamp Outed As Obama's Pocket Yes Vote For Gun Control

Earlier today, in writing about the Democrats’ gun control face plant, I speculated that Senator Heidi Heitkmap’s decision to vote no on the legislation probably wasn’t her decision at all but rather Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (who poured millions into helping Heitkamp get elected).

Shocker: Sequester Hasn't Resulted In Air Travel Apocalypse

The Obama administration has been working long and hard to make the sequester spending reductions, which are really quite modest and only slow the rate of federal spending growth rather than cutting it, as painful as possible. Because President Obama and Democrats just can’t let the public catch on to the idea that there might

Obama Administration Hasn't Implemented $67 Billion In Cost Savings Recommended By The Obama Administration

The House Oversight Committee, chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa, released this video today showing the Obama administration’s comical finger-pointing game over who canceled the White House tours and notes that, despite the canceled tours, the President hasn’t implemented $67 billion in cost savings suggested by his own Inspectors General. From PJ Media (emphasis mine): “It’s

Obama: "We don’t have an immediate crisis in terms of debt"

We didn’t need President Obama to tell us this directly. The fiscally seriousness budget Senate Democrats have released, and the White House has endorsed tells us how lightly Democrats take our national debt problems.
