[Democratic] Senator Quits Montana Race After Charge Of Plagiarism
August 7, 2014
Under pressure from fellow Democrats, Senator John Walsh of Montana, who has served in office for just six months, said Thursday that he was dropping his election bid, clearing the path for his party to nominate a new candidate.
His withdrawal from the race comes about two weeks after The New York Times reported that in 2007 Mr. Walsh plagiarized large sections of the final paper he completed to earn his masters degree at the prestigious Army War College in Carlisle, Pa.
In his statement, Mr. Walsh expressed no contrition for the plagiarism, saying only that the research paper from my time at the U.S. Army War College has become a distraction from the debate you expect and deserve.

Dana Milbank: Obama vacations as the world burns

President Obama must really be teed off
Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid.
Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf.
Clinton, in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg published by the Atlantic over the weekend, offered a withering comment on the Obama doctrine, described in shorthand by White House officials as dont do stupid s---.
Said Clinton:Great nations need organizing principles, and Dont do stupid stuff is not an organizing principle.
As the criticism became public, Obama was doggedly sticking with his plans to go on vacation a decision that, if not in the category of stupid stuff, could fit under the heading of tone deafness.

NBCs Todd, Mitchell Sour On Obama Over Iraq Excuses:A Farce!
Top NBC reporters Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell turned on President Obama over his excuses for Iraqs unravelling on Sunday, with Todd claiming he never tried to secure a 2011 troop agreement with the Iraqi government and Mitchell calling the White Houses bad intelligence excuse a farce.
The pair unloaded on the Obama administration during Sundays Meet the Press, calling it aimless and needling its excuses for the sudden surge of ultra-violent jihadis in northern Iraq.
As American bombs again fall on that country, President Obama responded to criticism that we should have left troops inside Iraq after 2011 by claiming the Iraqi government pushed the U.S. out.
But, this president ideologically did not want to use more influence to host David Gregory began.
Look, this was not an administration that was eager to tell [Iraqi Prime Minister] Maliki,Oh, you dont want a status-of-forces agreement? Todd agreed, explaining how the White House failed to pursue any agreement that would have left a stabilizing force.

Tom wolf looks like a puppet
Somebody is pulling his strings
The bottom line is some people can take care of themselves and some people are always gonna need a hand out
The people who are screaming about school funding are the same people who pay no taxes
If you point that out to them they don't want to hear it because they know they are to blame

University Reducing Student Work Hours Thanks To Obamacare
The University of Kansas has reduced student employment hours from 30 hours a week to 20 hours a week due to the Affordable Care Act mandate that compels employers to provide health insurance to part-time workers, Campus Reform reports.
Graduate students can work no more than 29 hours.
The revised policy seeks to balance the necessity for students to make academic progress while managing potential fiscal liabilities with ACA, vice provost for administration and finance Diane Goddard said in an email to the departments obtained by The University Daily Kansan.
According to The Daily Kansan, Director of Human Resources Ola Faucher estimates that nearly 5,000 student employees and every university department will be impacted by the cutbacks in employment hours.

Gov. Rick Perry of Texas Is Indicted on Charge of Abuse of Power !!!!!!!!!
Guess Perry wont be running for Prez in 2016 !!!!
AUSTIN Gov. Rick Perry of Texas was indicted on two felony counts on Friday by a state grand jury examining his handling of a local district attorneys drunken driving arrest and the state financing for a public corruption unit under the lawyers control.
The indictment was returned late Friday in Austin.
The investigation centered on Mr. Perrys veto power as governor. His critics asserted that he used that power as leverage to try to get an elected official and influential Democrat Rosemary Lehmberg, the district attorney in Travis County to step down after her arrest for drunken driving last year. Ms. Lehmberg is Austins top prosecutor and oversees a powerful public corruption unit that investigates state, local and federal officials; its work led to the 2005 indictment of a former Republican congressman, Tom DeLay on charges of violating campaign finance laws.
Following Ms. Lehmbergs arrest, Mr. Perry and his aides threatened to veto $7.5 million in state dollars for the public corruption unit in her office unless she resigned. The governor followed through on his threat, vetoing the money by stating that he could not support continued state funding for an office with statewide jurisdiction at a time when the person charged with ultimate responsibility of that unit has lost the publics confidence.
