Fox and Friends’ Hasselbeck Calls Out Obama’s Faulty ‘Class Warfare’ Speech: ‘He Is the System’ He Criticizes

“Obamacare isn’t working, so the president goes to his old faithful ‘class warfare argument,’” Hasselbeck said. “He’s saying he wants to take out inequality and his policies from the beginning have been to equalize.”

But, she continued, “the top 1%—their income rose by 31.4% between 2009 and 2012. Income for everyone else, you know how much that grew? 0.4%. These are just facts here. 95% of income gains have gone to the top 1%. So this system that he’s talking about, he is the system. It’s his system!”...

A Failed Presidency

This is a fascinating and fluid moment in our politics. The Obama presidency is imploding, with one problem catalyzing another. The combination of a structurally flawed program and staggering incompetence, with the added touch of Mr. Obama’s serial deceptions, has cause a remarkably swift collapse in public support for the president...

Obama’s Cynical Politics of Deception

That wasn’t Barack Obama’s only promise, though. During the course of that campaign, Obama pledged a comprehensive reform of the health-care system, one that would “bend the cost curve downward” while expanding insurance coverage to all Americans. When his opponents repeatedly pointed out that federal control of the health insurance market would create higher costs and push millions of Americans out of their current plans, Obama repeatedly reassured voters that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”...

Surprise! 60 Minutes Asserts Benghazi Is A Scandal, And The Obama Administration Lied To Us

When Chris Stevens was killed in Benghazi, Libya, on the anniversary of September 11th last year, it was only the sixth time that the United States had lost an ambassador to its enemies. The events of that night have been overshadowed by misinformation, confusion and intense partisanship. But for those who lived through it, there's nothing confusing about what happened, and they share a sense of profound frustration because they say they saw it coming.Tonight, you will hear for the first time from a security officer who witnessed the attack. He calls himself, Morgan Jones, a pseudonym he's using for his own safety. A former British soldier, he's been helping to keep U.S. diplomats and military leaders safe for the last decade. On a night he describes as sheer hell, Morgan Jones snuck into a Benghazi hospital that was under the control of al Qaeda terrorists, desperate to find out if one of his close friends from the U.S. Special Mission was the American he'd been told was there...

What’s The Worst Case Scenario For Obamacare?

So what’s the worst case scenario? Honestly, it’s this: if this is as big of a failure as it looks like at the moment, and the problems are not fixed within the next two months, the Obamacare project could end up backfiring in a way that could have dramatic effects on politics and policy going forward. It will contribute to distrust in government’s basic capability. It will fail to live up to its promise, and wreck the insurance markets for no good purpose. It will represent the administration betraying its strongest supporters. And it may ultimately leave President Obama wishing John Roberts had ruled the other way – turning him into a martyr for the cause as opposed to putting the burden of proof on actually implementing his signature policy...
