Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper Immediately Calls Death of Cpl. Nathan Frank Cirillo as Terrorism, Um … Barack Obama Maybe Not So Much
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper calls murder of Cpl. Nathan Frank Cirillo as Terrorism, Barack Obama actually called it a “these kinds of acts of senseless violence or terrorism”. Or?
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the following, “Cpl. Cirillo was murdered today, killed in cold blood, as he provided a ceremonial honor guard at Canada’s National War Memorial. This week’s events are a grim reminder that Canada is not immune to the types of terrorist attacks we have seen elsewhere around the world.”
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper acts like a leader …
But Harper had no doubt, saying in a nationally televised address Wednesday night that “we will learn more about the terrorist and any accomplices he may have had.” The attack, he said, was proof that “Canada is not immune to the types of terrorist attacks that we have seen elsewhere around the world.”
“But let there be no misunderstanding: We will not be intimated — Canada will never be intimidated,” Harper said. “In fact, this will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts, and those of our national security agencies, to take all necessary steps to identify and counter threats and keep Canada safe here at home.”
For terrorist organizations “who brutalize those in other countries with the hope of bringing their savagery to our shores,” he had this message: “They will have no safe haven.”
Then there is Barack Obama, who once a again would not just come out and call the murder for what it was … “Obviously, the situation there is tragic, but it emphasizes the degree of which we have to remain vigilant when it comes to dealing with these kinds of acts of senseless violence or terrorism.” WTF, these kinds of acts of senseless violence or terrorism!!! Does Barack Obama think this was also workplace violence? Obama would later say, when it comes to dealing with terrorism, Canada and the United States has to be entirely in sync.”
Then There is Barack Obama …
Suffolk University/USA TODAY Poll: Republican Challenger Cory Gardner Leads by 7 Points Over Mark Udall in Colorado U.S. Senate Race
WOW, a Colorado Rocky Mountain High for Republican Challenger Cory Gardner …
Just two weeks ahead of the 2014 elections and a recent Suffolk University/USA TODAY poll has Republican challenger Cory Gardner ahead of incumbent Mark Udall by 7 points in the race for the Colorado US Senate seat. The poll shows Gardner leading Udall, 46% to 39%, with 6% for other independent candidates and 9% undecided. An incumbent candidate with only 39%, that usually means they are toast. If a state like Colorado that has been trending blue in recent years is shifting this much to the red in this election cycle, there really could be a wave election for the Republicans … with really no help from the GOP. With Barack Obama’s continued falling approval rating, failed policies and unpopular presidency … those that have sided with Obama are taking a hit in the 2014 elections. This Senate seat really does appear to be slipping away from the Democrats, one that not many really counted as a GOP pickup several months ago.
RCP has all polls for Gardner and the challenger up by 4.
The poll of likely voters in the general election shows 46 percent backing Gardner and Udall with 39 percent, with 9 percent undecided and 6 percent spread among four independent and third-party candidates.
The Colorado race for governor continues to be a close race, with former Congressman Bob Beauprez, a Republican, leading Democratic incumbent John Hickenlooper 45 percent to 43 percent, with 8 percent undecided. Beauprez is gaining while Hickenlooper’s numbers have not moved from a month ago, when he led Beauprez 43 percent to 41 percent.
The Obama factor
Anti-Obama sentiment seems to be on the rise in Colorado. The president’s unfavorable rating was 56 percent; his job disapproval was 57 percent; and 56 percent said that Obamacare is bad for Colorado. Udall’s unfavorable numbers at 54 percent are in line with Obama’s.
Barack Obama Says on Al Sharpton Radio Show: 2014 Democrats “Are All Folks Who Vote With Me” And “Have Supported My Agenda”
Did Barack Obama just make “devastating” statements to Democrats on the Al Sharpton radio show, or is he trying to gin up his African-American base? Or is it all about the Narcissist in Chief’s “hurt feelings”? Democrats running in red states and in close contests have been trying their best to distance themselves from Obama, including refusing to say whetther they even voted for him. However, he just put himself right in the middle of their campaigns … “These are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in congress.”
But Obama made sure to stress that although Alison Lundergan Grimes, Bruce Braley, and even DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz have all insisted that the president is “not on the ballot,” all of them support his agenda and will vote with him.
“These are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in congress,” Obama said. “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me.”
Describing the “tough map“ that Democrats face in this year’s midterms, Obama told Sharpton, “A lot of the states that are contested this time are states that I didn’t win. And so some of the candidates there — it is difficult for them to have me in the state because the Republicans will use that to try to fan Republican turnout.”
“The bottom line though is, these are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in Congress,” Obama added, citing the minimum wage and fair pay as issues on which they all agree. “This isn’t about my feelings being hurt, these are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me,” the president said.
YAWN … My how the mighty have fallen, it would appear many folks have lost that Obama Luvin’ feeling and are just bored to tears with Him.
Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington for Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown of Maryland, who is running for governor. Ever wonder why President Barack Obama has been AWOL from the campaign trail in 2014, well wonder no more. As Obama begged the audience for their vote, a steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke. OUCH, That’s going to leave a mark. Walking out on the Obamamessiah, The One? Hmm, weren’t there articles just wrote on the importance of the “black” vote in 2014? If energizing the base means the audience leaving as Obama speaks, voting turnout may be a real issue in 2014 for Democrats.
The American Thinker makes a very important point, “There is no recovery possible from boring. Once you are tuned-out, you have lost the possibility of revival.” After a while, with the same old false promises, Obama just sounds like Charlie Browns teacher, even to his biggest supporters.
President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.
With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election.
Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity.
Barack Obama Weekly Address: What You Need to Know About Ebola … Good Grief, Community Organizer Compares Ebola to the Flu
Barack Obama tells America in his weekly Address what you need to know about the Ebola … “If you like your Ebola, you can keep your Ebola.”
This is what happens when you elect a community organizer, a divider and a person who makes everything political, including the safeguarding of America president. Barack Obama has been a failure with the economy, failure with reducing the national debt, failure with Obamacare, failure with foreign policy in the Middle East (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Egypt and Iran to name a few), failure in dealing with Russia, failure in securing our Southern border with Mexico, failure to improve race relations in the US, failure with ISIS and has had so many scandals that Richard Nixon looks like a choir boy. The scandals include Fast and Furious, Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate, AP-gate, James Rosen-gate, Eric Holder perjury. Its reads like an Obama scandal list from A to Z.
Now we are supposed to trust Obama and his cronies with Ebola. Maybe they can do better than the role out of the Healthcare.gov website. During his Weekly Address, this fool actually made the comparison of flu deaths to Ebola. Obama stated, “As our public health experts point out, every year thousands of Americans die from the flu. Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch. It’s not transmitted through the air like the flu.” Wow genius, really? You would dare reference Ebola and the flu in the same breath? However, Barack Obama is failing to mention that the death rate in the Ebola epidemic has risen to 70%, up from 50%. But Obama wont talk about those facts.
The World Health Organization (WHO) made the announcement at a news conference in Geneva, where officials said there could be up to 10,000 new cases of the virus every week within two months.
Weekly Address Transcript: [comments below in blue, editorial notes]
Today, I want to take a few minutes to speak with you-directly and clearly-about Ebola: [From the president who brought us, if you like your doctor and healthcare plan, you can keep your doctor and healthcare plan, period!] what we’re doing about it, and what you need to know . Because meeting a public health challenge like this isn’t just a job for government. All of us-citizens, leaders, the media-have a responsibility and a role to play. This is a serious disease, but we can’t give in to hysteria or fear-because that only makes it harder to get people the accurate information they need. We have to be guided by the science. We have to remember the basic facts. [When has the Obama administrations ever cared about the facts?]
First, what we’re seeing now is not an “outbreak” or an “epidemic” of Ebola in America. [No, we have two infected nurses and one dead individual from Liberia and too many others who have been exposed to these 3 people]. We’re a nation of more than 300 million people. To date, we’ve seen three cases of Ebola diagnosed here-the man who contracted the disease in Liberia [and was sent home from the hospital the first time], came here [a Liberian man, Thomas Eric Duncan, who lied on his flight questionnaire and came to the US knowing he had been exposed to Ebola]. and sadly died; the two courageous nurses who were infected [one was blamed by the CDC director for not following protocol, the other was allowed to get on a plane with a low grade fever by the CDC and thus exposing others to the disease]. while they were treating him. Our thoughts and our prayers are with them, and we’re doing everything we can to give them the best care possible. Now, even one infection is too many. At the same time, we have to keep this in perspective. As our public health experts point out, every year thousands of Americans die from the flu. [Are you kidding that this moron is making comparisons between the flu and Ebola?]
Second, Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch. It’s not transmitted through the air like the flu. You cannot get it from just riding on a plane or a bus. The only way that a person can contract the disease is by coming into direct contact with the bodily fluids of somebody who is already showing symptoms. [BS ... Ebola is not AIDS. You can get Ebola from bodily fluids like sweat and saliva left on a plane or bus seat, railing, surface. Also, if some one coughs, sneezes or slits and fluid comes out] I’ve met and hugged some of the doctors and nurses who’ve treated Ebola patients. I’ve met with an Ebola patient who recovered, right in the Oval Office. And I’m fine. [Obama, you are far from fine, but that is a whole other story. Maybe we should make Barack Obama the official greeter at the airport for all peoples coming from West Africa Ebola riddled countries?]
Third, we know how to fight this disease. We know the protocols. [Really, then why did the CDC just change the protocols?] And we know that when they’re followed, they work. So far, five Americans who got infected with Ebola in West Africa have been brought back to the United States-and all five have been treated safely, without infecting healthcare workers.
And this week, at my direction [me, me, me, me], we’re stepping up our efforts. Additional CDC personnel are on the scene in Dallas and Cleveland. We’re working quickly to track and monitor anyone who may have been in close contact with someone showing symptoms. We’re sharing lessons learned [How in the hell did they not have lessons learned from treating Ebola in West Africa?] so other hospitals don’t repeat the mistakes that happened in Dallas. The CDC’s new Ebola rapid response teams will deploy quickly [You mean we already did not have one like in the movie, 'Outbreak'?] to help hospitals implement the right protocols. New screening measures are now in place at airports that receive nearly all passengers arriving from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone [The same similar screenings that would have still allowed Thomas Eric Duncan into the United States]. And we’ll continue to constantly review our measures, and update them as needed, to make sure we’re doing everything we can to keep Americans safe.
Barack Obama Appoints Political Hack and Spin Doctor Ron Klain as Ebola Czar … The Divider in Chief Strikes Again, “It’s a Political Move from Beginning to End”
SERIOUS SITUATIONS CALL FOR SERIOUS PEOPLE … NOT COMMUNITY AGITATORS PLAYING PARTISAN POLITICS.
The Divider in Chief is at it again. Barack Obama announced that he was appointing partisan bureaucrat and spin doctor Ron Klain as Ebola Czar. As only a community agitator could do, Obama has taken a very serious situation and turned it into partisan politics as Liberals think it is a great idea while conservatives are do not and are much more skeptical. With no medical or public health experience experience what-so-ever, Ron Klain is a Washington insider hired more likely to help the Obama administration message, a.k.a. spin, Ebola and the debacle in hoe the Obama administrations handles it running up to the 2014 midterm elections.
President Obama’s choice of veteran Democratic politico Ron Klain to serve as Ebola czar stunned many Republicans. Their first objection is that Klain has no experience in public health or infectious diseases. But in a larger sense, GOP critics see Klain, a former chief of staff for Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden, more as a political operative than a potential leader of the fight against Ebola.
What qualifies Klain for the job, the formal title of which is Ebola Response Coordinator? First, the White House makes no claim of any expertise in health matters. Instead, officials point to Klain’s impressive Washington resume — the jobs with Gore and Biden, plus chief of staff for Clinton administration Attorney General Janet Reno and top positions with Senate Democrats.
“I don’t think it’s going to make any difference one way or the other. Its a PR move from beginning to end. It gives the appearance of motion; this is what Obama specializes in. If you have a VA scandal, an IRS scandal, a Secret Service scandal, you fire the guy at the top so you have the appearance of motion; here you’re putting a guy in who’s supposedly going to coordinate.”
“There’s a quote in the New York Times about what Klain would do, and he said his job is ‘messaging.’ So we have a virus on the loose that turns your organs into liquid, and the answer is to appoint a guy to do the messaging.
Oh wait, here is a qualification to be Ebola czar … was a “key player” in praising Solyndra to Obama and Biden, despite the red flags from auditors. Solyndra is now bankrupt. Can we really afford to have some one in charge of Ebola with such a lack of judgement?
Ron Klain, the newly appointed White House Ebola response coordinator, was one of the senior White House officials who advised that President Obama should visit solar power company Solyndra in 2011, despite an auditor raising red flags about the company’s finances.
According to The Washington Post, Klain was one of the “key players” in the scandal while he worked for Vice President Joe Biden: “Ron Klain, then Biden’s chief of staff, dismissed auditor’s concerns about Solyndra’s solvency, reasoning that all innovative companies come with risk.”
Another Solyndra email, reported by Fox News, indicated that Biden’s office were all fans of Solyndra, and that the staff “about had an orgasm” at the prospect of an Energy Department loan.
UPDATEI I: Can this appointment become any more of a joke? As it appears, Ron Klain will be reporting to former U.N. ambassador and current National Security Adviser Susan Rice. Yes, that same Susan Rice who lost all credibility by going on five network Sunday shows and lied that the terrorist Benghazi Consulate attack was the result of a video tape.
It should be frightening to all Americans that the CDC is this political …
US Rep. Steve Scalise(R-LA) confronted CDC Director Frieden over the Ebola situation and putting a travel ban in place or at the very least to stop issuing visas to individuals from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea to the US. The answers that he received from the CDC Director were nothing short of political stonewalling and non-answers.
How can there not be a travel ban from individuals from West Africa, after all … that’s how other African countries saved themselves, they closed their borders. So if it was good for African countries to do so, why is it also not okay for America? What is Obama’s issue and agenda? During the hearing the CDC director claimed that CDC was open to travel ban. Hmm … but is Obama and will it be too late if he finally is forced to?
WAPO-ABC News Poll: Obama Hits News Low with 40% Approval Rating … Only 33% Among Independents … Democrats in Serious Trouble
HEY AMERICA, HOW’S THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YA?
According to the most recent WAPO-ABC News poll, Barack Obama has hit an all-time low with an approval rating at 40% and a 51% disapproval. Actually, it is curious as to why it is not even lower. Among Independents, Obama only has a 33% approval. Under Obama’s watch, everything is a colossal disaster. Nothing is going good in the United States or around the world.
The US economy is a floundering mess, illegal immigration, ISIS is on the rise and now we have the October surprise of Ebola in the United States. Barack Obama polls poorly on all major political issues as we are week’s ahead of the November midterm elections and early voting has begun in some states.
Can you say EPIC FAILURE!!!
Heading into the final weeks of the midterm campaign, the political landscape continues to tilt in favor of the Republican Party, with President Obama’s overall approval rating at the lowest level of his presidency and GOP voters signaling greater likelihood than Democrats that they will cast ballots, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Americans are looking to November and beyond with dissatisfaction about the state of the country and the political leadership in Washington. Two-thirds say the country is seriously off-track. And while more than 6 in 10 say the president lacks a clear plan for governing, …
See all polling data HERE.
The overall job approval rating average is not much better for Obama. According to RCP, only 42.0% approve, while 52.4% disapprove.
Barack Obama and his political party are heading into the midterm elections in trouble. The president’s 40 percent job approval rating in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll is the lowest of his career – and the Democratic Party’s popularity is its weakest in polling back 30 years, with more than half of Americans seeing the party unfavorably for the first time.
The Republican Party is even more unpopular. But benefitting from their supporters’ greater likelihood of voting, GOP candidates nonetheless hold a 50-43 percent lead among likely voters for U.S. House seats in the Nov. 4 election.

WAPO/ABC Poll: 67% of Americans Support a Travel Ban From Ebola Affected Countries of West Africa Like Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea
TWO THIRDS, 67% OF AMERICANS ARE IN FAVOR OF TRAVEL BANS FROM COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY EBOLA … BARACK OBAMA GOLFS.
According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll, 67% of Americans are in favor of travel bans for individuals from countries affected by Ebola, namely the West African ravaged countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. JUST 67%? Look for this number to grow considerably after a second transmitted case of Ebola has now been diagnosed in Dallas, Texas.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans are concerned about a widespread epidemic of the Ebola virus in the United States, and about as many in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say the federal government is not doing enough to prevent it.
Indeed, more than four in 10 – 43 percent are worried that they or an immediate family member might catch the disease. That’s similar to the level of concern about other viral outbreaks in some previous ABC/Post polls, but more consequential, given Ebola’s high mortality rate.
From The Daily Caller points out that this is not a Republican or Democrat partisan issue … their is support on both sides to put a travel ban in place. Except from the always political, PC, community organizer, Barack Obama.
The public’s support for an Ebola travel ban is growing fast, prompting more Republican and Democratic politicians to demand a White House policy reversal.
Sixty seven percent of Americans said they would favor “restricting entry to the United States by people who’ve been in affected countries,” according to a new poll by The Washington Post and the ABC News.
Only 29 percent opposed the travel curbs on people arriving from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, where 4,000 people have already died from the lethal and invasive disease.
That attitude is spurring politicians to challenge President Barack Obama’s repeated opposition to any restrictions on the entry of apparently healthy Africans who may carry the disease.
Obama’s progressive-style opposition to the travel ban may become a problem for Democrats during the remaining three weeks of the 2014 campaign, especially if more Americans are infected with the deadly disease.
RUT-ROH … DSCC Pulls TV Advertising for Democrat Senate Challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes … VIDEO of Grimes – McConnell Senate Debate
Democrats waiving white flag in Kentucky Senate race …
Bad news for Democrats ahead of 2014 elections, the TV ads go dark from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee for Kentucky Democrat Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has had a consistent lead in the polls and seems to be pulling away at the end, even after the DSCC has spent millions in ads. Put a fork in her, Grimes is done. In their Senate debate, challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes once again refused to answer the simple question of whether she voted for Barack Obama or not. She claimed her lack of a response was based on principle. I think we all know it was based on politics as Obama is very unpopular in the Blue Grass state and lost 60% to 38% to Romney in the 2012 presidential election.
After a significant investment in support of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, the DSCC had not reserved time for the final three weeks of the race and, as of today, is no longer on the air.
DSCC Goes Dark in Kentucky
“The DSCC has now spent more than 2 million in Kentucky and continues to make targeted investments in the ground game while monitoring the race for future investments, but is currently not on the air in the state,” a DSCC official told CQ Roll Call.
Democrats pulled their TV advertising in Kentucky from now through election day, leaving Senate hopeful Alison Lundergan Grimes without air support from the national party, which had invested heavily in trying to unseat the Senate’s top Republican.
It’s a sign of how stretched Democrats are in defending their own turf across the country that they can no longer afford to go on offense in the marquee race against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
But Grimes sources insist they’ll be fine on their own. The campaign, sources said, is flush with $4.4 million cash on hand — much more than other Democrats on the ballot this year.
“Money is not an issue in this campaign,” a Grimes source said.
Note to Grimes, yes money is the only thing in a campaign when you are the challenger and the Democrats have claimed they have more than the GOP and plan to carpet-bomb the airwaves with political ads.
