It’s possible she was just handed an insurance cancellation letter, but I don’t think so:
In case you were wondering who in the world could be among the 38 percent who still think he’s done a wonderful job, there you go.
Then there’s this:
In annual Economic Report to Congress, Pres Obama says the US "better-positioned for the 21st century than any other nation on Earth."

Substitute “21st century” with “getting every man, woman and child dependent on government” and it’s actually accurate.
A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen the very “income equality” President Obama says he is campaigning to fix.
Unite Here warned that due to Obamacare’s much higher costs for health insurance than what union workers currently pay, the result will be a pay cut of up to $5 an hour. “If employers follow the incentives in the law, they will push families onto the exchanges to buy coverage. This will force low-wage service industry employees to spend $2.00, $3.00 or even $5.00 an hour of their pay to buy similar coverage,” said the union in a new report.
Too bad they had to drag the rest of the country down with them.
The above story needs some music to accompany it:

If Sarah Palin did this it would have been on every nightly newscast in the country. I don’t think he was using a teleprompter, but we’ll blame the teleprompter anyway because of its failure to be there to save the moment:
FACT: The word “respect” had to lay off one of the E’s to avoid Obamacare penalties.
On Monday in Tallahassee, Jesse Jackson and others will march for the repeal of Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law. Jackson has said that such a law makes Florida an “apartheid state” or something.
Now couple Jackson’s demand for the end of “Stand Your Ground” with this:
Marissa Alexander facing 60 yrs in prison 4 firing a warning shot is absurd + wrong. The US Dept of Justice should intervene IMMEDIATELY.

Alexander was sentenced to 20 years for aggravated assault and tried to invoke Stand Your Ground, but was denied. A judge recently ordered a new trial. Maybe she’ll be allowed to use Stand Your Ground at the new trial — unless Jackson & company manage to have it repealed before then.
’12 Years a Slave’ such a good movie at least 2 Oscar voters chose it as ‘Best Picture’ without seeing it

This probably happens a lot more than ever gets reported:
All the same, two Oscar voters privately admitted that they didn’t see “12 Years a Slave,” thinking it would be upsetting. But they said they voted for it anyway because, given the film’s social relevance, they felt obligated to do so.
Hopping on a pop culture bandwagon just because everybody else was doing so in spite of personally knowing nothing about it? Why does that sound so familiar?

Hillary Clinton is uniquely qualified to be president, according to Dems. It’s just that she possesses so many qualifications that they can’t think of any:
They forgot her biggest accomplishment of all: Marrying Bill Clinton. That and a magical ability to turn $1,000 into $100,000.

If that’s true, I am now a big fan … of Grayson’s wife.
Sounds like the Egyptians are tired of her antics as well:

Via Drudge, The Sun give us tomorrow’s New York Post headlines today:
Meanwhile, Obama is cracking down… on Israel.
Maybe he was busy presiding over another DNC happy hour.
Via PJ Media:
President Obama had no public events on his schedule today, yet skipped a meeting of his national security team at the White House today as they huddled over the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Seen leaving the meeting at the White House were Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey, and CIA Director John Brennan.
Vice President Joe Biden reportedly joined the meeting via videoconference, while Obama was briefed later by National Security Advisor Susan Rice.
In defense of Obama, maybe he thought it was a waste of his time to go to a security meeting about a country that’s no longer a threat:
Obama did however speak with Putin by phone yesterday. Probably just to mock Mitt Romney for thinking Russia still posed a threat.
