..... (continued)

A Yahoo News analysis of the 444 briefings that Carney has held since becoming White House press secretary has identified 13 distinct strains in the way he dodges a reporter's question. Since Carney held his first daily briefing with reporters in the White House Brady Press Briefing Room on Feb. 16, 2011, for example, he’s used some variation of "I don’t have the answer" more than 1,900 times. In 1,383 cases he referred a question to someone else. But will he at least speculate on hypotheticals? No. In fact, he has refused to do so 525 times.

Pelosi Stops Talking About Abortion

weeklystandard(dot)com/blogs/nancy-pelosi-oddly-doesnt-seem-want-talk-about-abortion-anymore_736847(dot)html

At a press conference Thursday afternoon, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi ripped Republicans for not spending enough money on food stamps. "They're taking food out of the mouths of babies," Pelosi said of her Republican colleagues following the defeat of the farm bill in a floor vote. "Two million families would lose their food under the bill, much less under the Southerland amendment."

But what Pelosi didn't say was more interesting than what she did say.

Two days after the House passed a bill prohibiting most abortions during the final four months of pregnancy, Pelosi didn't say a single word about abortion, the "war on women," or "reproductive rights." When a reporter tried to ask Pelosi a question related to the late-term abortion bill this afternoon, Pelosi said she only wanted questions a

Wow. Walter Reed Hospital and Fort Belvoir’s hospital in Virginia, who care for our veterans, will lay off over 3,000 workers.

In further news, President Obama's trip to Africa will cost taxpayers about $100 million. The IRS will be handing out $70 million in bonuses to their union workers.

"Ac cording to most polls, most people blame these things on Congress, and most republicans have a worse impression of their own party in Congress than most dems do."

You already supplied charts to prove that? I missed it. Can you show us again please?

You expect Obama's popularity to go UP after he leaves office? I don't think so.

core, if you can't support your claims, just say so. It is up to the person making the claim to support it, not the other way around. But if you can't, we understand why.

Did senior State Department security officials commit perjury?

foxnews(dot)com/politics/2013/06/18/did-senior-state-department-security-officials-commit-perjury/

The officials are Scott Bultrowicz, who until Feb. 1 served as director of DS, and Tracy H. Mahaffey, who remains the executive director of DS. In videotaped depositions conducted this past February, Bultrowicz claimed not to know about any claims by a federal agency that DS officials have failed to follow proper procedures; and Mahaffey claimed not to know about any pending investigations into DS.

Yet Fox News has obtained meeting notes, draft reports and other evidence that suggest both officials were aware, at the time they were deposed, of a pending investigation into DS and its operations by the State Department's Office of Inspector General (OIG). What's more, both officials had been apprised of the OIG's preliminary finding that DS did indeed fail to follow proper procedures in at least eight cases....

Based on economy, unemployment, food stamps, national debt, broken promises, wars, foreign policy, scandals, expensive vacations, Obama is FAR, FAR more sucky than most expected.

"It was ad hom."

Folks have a right to know how reliable their sources are, don't they?

"Anyways, no, I do not know that Bush's approval ratings are higher than Obama's"

Here, let me help:

breitbart(dot)com/Big-Government/2013/06/11/Bush-More-Popular-Than-Obama

In a Gallup tracking poll released Tuesday, former-President George W. Bush currently stands with a favorability rating of 49%, compared to 46% who see the 43rd president unfavorably. Meanwhile, another Gallup poll shows President Obama with only a 47% approval rating, with 44% disapproving.

Over time, it will only get better.

Its a matter of trust and believability.

When someone repeatedly gives you false information, their credibility *****.

You do know that George W. Bush's approval rating is higher than Obama's, do you not?

Great question RPG.

Since we've got on the topic of climate. Core, answer this question that almost nobody asks. It is factual that the planet gets warmer for periods and then colder, warmer, than colder. Explain to me how high CO2 levels in the atmosphere can cause the planets temperature to increase and decrease?

While you are answering RPG's question answer this one too. Plants love CO2 and with higher levels of CO2 plant grouth increases. The by product of the increased plant life is increased oxygen levels Now explain to us core how a higher level of CO2 hurts that much.
