REGGIE LOVE BLOWS OBAMAS COVERS OFF 'We must have played 15 games of spades,' Love said.
Obama has previously said that he watched the raid in real time in the Situation Room with members of his national security team. It's not clear when he stepped away to play cards.
'This was the longest 40 minutes of my life,' the president told NBC News a year after the raid, referring to the amount of time the Navy SEALs had to complete their mission after landing at the bin Laden compound in Abbottabad.
Love, 32, has worked for Obama as a personal assistant since the president was a junior senator. He was invited to the forum last month to reflect on his time as one of the president's closest aides. The Weekly Standard first reported on his remarks.

A former ombudsman for The Washington Post offered some unsolicited advice Wednesday to the paper's new owner Jeff Bezos, urging the Amazon.com founder to can conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin.

Writing in The Washington City Paper, Patrick B. Pexton, who served as ombudsman for the Post from 2011 until March 2013, dispensed some general tips, too, telling Bezos to "grow a thick skin" and to get to know the newspaper's audience. But perhaps his most pointed suggestion came when he addressed Rubin, the author of the Post's "Right Turn" blog who was perhaps Mitt Romney's biggest cheerleader in the press throughout last year's campaign.

Rubin, Pexton wrote, was "the No. 1 source of complaint mail about any single Post staffer" while he served as ombudsman. Bezos should instruct Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor at the Post, to fire Rubin, Pexton wrote.

Not because she’s conservative, but because she’s just plain bad. She doesn’t travel within a hundred miles of Post standards. She parrots and peddles every silly right-wing theory to come down the pike in transparent attempts to get Web hits," Pexton wrote. "Her analysis of the conservative movement, which is a worthwhile and important beat that the Post should treat more seriously on its national pages, is shallow and predictable. Her columns, at best, are political pornography; they get a quick but sure rise out of the right, but you feel bad afterward.

And she is often wrong, and rarely acknowledges it. She was oh-so-wrong about Mitt Romney, week after week writing embarrassing flattery about his 2012 campaign, calling almost every move he made brilliant, and guaranteeing that he would trounce Barack Obama. When he lost, the next day she savaged him and his campaign with treachery, saying he was the worst candidate with the worst staff, ever. She was wrong about the Norway shootings being acts of al-Qaida. She was wrong about Chuck Hagel being an anti-Semite. And does she apologize? Nope.

Rubin was the No. 1 source of complaint mail about any single Post staffer while I was ombudsman, and I’m leaving out the organized email campaigns against her by leftie groups like Media Matters. Thinking conservatives didn’t like her, thinking moderates didn’t like her, government workers who knew her arguments to be unfair didn’t like her. Dump her like a dull tome on the Amazon Bargain Books page.

Republican Nightmares Come True: Weekly Unemployment Applications Drop to 2007 Numbers

The President might be on vacation, but he still finds ways to upset Republicans with good news. Yes, there was more welcome economic news on Thursday as the Labor Department said that weekly applications for unemployment insurance dropped to the fewest claims since October 2007.

The Labor Department said that the 4-week average was at the lowest since November 2007, according to The Washington Post. By either measurement, this is a great improvement, marking a 6-year low and that’s something to breathe a cautious sigh of relief over, if not celebrate (unless, of course, you’re cheering on the demise of America because a black Democrat is in office and you only feel “patriotic” when you win).

....In more bad news for the Littles, the government also reported that it’s on track to post its lowest annual budget gap in five years. The Congressional Budget Office predicts that the annual deficit will be $670 billion for 2013, which would mark the first year that the gap between spending and revenue has been below $1 trillion since 2008. No you can’t blame the 2009 budget on Obama, as the budgets are made the year before and the budget year ends Sept. 30.

So, the stock market is hitting new highs, June posted a huge budget surplus, the deficit is lowering dramatically and we have improving unemployment numbers, eh? It’s a full on Republican nightmare.

Expect your conservative friends to respond to this good news with a hysterical non sequitur like,“Benghazi!” If Republicans can’t impose universally long-lasting gloom and despair on the half of America that they really, really hate, then they’re just going to close their eyes and pretend it exists until Mommy and Daddy let them sleep with the Fox light on.

Wayne Allyn Root Is Why the Libertarian Party Can't Have Nice Things

Former Libertarian Party vice presidential candidate and current Libertarian National Campaign Committee Chair Wayne Allyn Root is why libertarians can't have nice things. Case in point: Root's latest column at Glenn Beck's The Blaze.

Let me sum it up for you: Mitt Romney should offer to release more tax returns only if Obama will release his college transcripts. This will take the pressure off Romney, and put the scrutiny back on Obama, except that Obama will never release his transcripts because he pretended to be from another country to get loans and then seldom went to classes at Columbia and got poor grades. Wayne Allyn Root knows all this because he also graduated from Columbia in 1983 and doesn't remember seeing any black people "Barry Soetoro."

This awful, weird, conspiratorial column, just linked by Matt Drudge, will probably be the most widely read thing Root has ever written. Its existence is a tragedy for Libertarians and libertarians.

Root's bio identifies him as "a former Libertarian vice presidential nominee" and "Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee" and the author of a book titled "The Conscience of a Libertarian." You know what that means? It means Wayne Allyn Root is an ambassador for libertarianism, and that his columns are a direct reflection on the Libertarian Party, which has several times elected him to prominent positions despite the fact that he is a glistening PR disaster.

Then again, nowhere in his piece for The Blaze does Root mention a single Libertarian candidate for office. This is probably a good thing, but also odd, because it's campaign season, and the job of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee is to run Libertarian Party candidates at the local, state, and congressional levels. Mitt Romney is not a candidate for local, state, or congressional office, and he is not a Libertarian (or even a libertarian).

So why is Wayne Allyn Root giving Romney free campaign advice, when he should be talking to, and about, Libertarian Party candidates? Are the heads of Democratic and Republican organizations writing insane memos telling Gary Johnson how to beat Obama, the bad-grade-getter? Are they telling down-ticket Libertarian Party candidates how to deflect questions about their finances?

NOPE.

That Root writes about Romney as if Gary Johnson did not exist is awful. What's worse is that articles like Root's repel the kind of people Johnson needs in November.

As for anyone who's still upset about The Weekly Standard's description of this year's LP convention as a "goat rodeo": Why don't you direct your rage at the clown running the Libertarian National Campaign Committee?

But my inquiry was more important. And you haven't reassured me that you DO see something wrong with the government going out of its way to get people on food stamps who don't want them and finding ways to succeed in making them dependent on government.
So, again, tell me you do see something very wrong here.
I asked first, you claim there are sitting GOP congresspersons wanting to let Obamacare run its course.

Another lie?

PS: the Dept. of Agriculture has been pushing food stamps since their inception, why weren't you incensed about this before the colored fella got into the White House?

Realtime is the only one who criticized Root for coming forward and saying he nor his fellow classmates studying the same major and graduating in the same class as Obama at Columbia remembered him.
He said he was "batsht crazy".
So that's when I told him you voted for him.
Root IS batshit crazy.
