… A Moment of Clarity [#George Will , #IRSgate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 29th,2014

.. to reiterate , it is really nice to have George Will at Fox News .

.. the nights and days that he goes at it with heavyweights such as Brit Hume and Dr. Charles Krauthammer are a pleasure to watch . These gentlemen come at their conservative philosophy and viewpoints from different walks of life and differing points of view . Their rhetorical battles are a thing to behold …

.. such as this one …

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..
.. [link] to the show segment ..

.. Mr. Will lays out the case very simply and succinctly for the appointment of a special prosecutor . Slyly , he lays out the case for an article of impeachment against the ObamaCrap Administration , eventually , once the GOP comes up with the institutional ” oomph ” to go after His Lordship once and for all ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,January 28th,2014

.. DannyBoy is , of course , Deputy Propaganda Minister [White House Communications Director] Dan Pfeiffer . He must wonder why he is not welcome that often on the Sunday shows ..

… You should really See This [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 2nd,2014

.. this was on Fox News Sunday this week .

.. [link] to the video …

.. Dr. Scott Gottlieb , a prominet ObamaCrapCare critic , was debating former Vermont Governor and former Dr. Howard Dean . I watched it , and it was especially gratifying to watch Dr. Gottlieb embarrass Dean very badly on – air .

.. Considering how bad a policy this mess is and how badly put together this Rube Goldberg contraption was , it needs to be blown up , and gone back to the beginning , so everyone can start over ….

.. just like POTUS ..

… Jack Lew , You are a Poor Steward [of the Nation ‘ s Finances] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 7th,2013

.. worse yet , you are a liar ..

.. if you know , or you knew , that we (our government) were going to  hit our national credit card limit , then you should have kept a large cash reserve … a much larger cash reserve …

.. also , you shut down parts of the government , until you get a raise in the limit on the national credit card ….

.. you also should be impeached , if there is a default . The decision is yours , and that of POTUS . No one else ‘ s . While part of the government is shut down , you pay the other bills , including the interest and the principal on the national debt …

.. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew appeared on five major talk shows Sunday morning to try to press House Republicans on the next

fiscal debate — raising the debt ceiling before an Oct. 17 deadline when the nation is expected to exhaust its borrowing authority.

“It would be like somebody saying I ran up my credit card and I decided not to pay it. You can’t do that,” Lew said on FNC ‘ s Fox News Sunday . “The United States is just too important to the world. Our currency is the world’s reserve currency.”

If Congress fails to act before mid-October, the United States government would default for the first time in history.

After Oct. 17, the government would be left with about $30 billion — an amount Lew says “won’t last long.”

“I can’t tell you,” he said. “We’ve never gotten to this point. We’ve never gotten to the point where the United States government has operated without the ability to borrow. It’s very dangerous. It’s reckless, because the reality is, there are no good choices if we run out of borrowing capacity and we run out of cash.”

Lew reiterated that President Barack Obama does not have the authority to raise the debt ceiling — eve though some Democratic lawmakers have called for him to act unilaterally.

“There is a desire here for there to be some kind of a magic solution,” he said on CNN. “There is an easy solution. A majority in Congress would do the right thing if given a chance to vote to open the government. A majority in Congress would do the right thing if given a chance to let us pay our bills. Congress needs to work, they need to do their job, but the majority needs to be given a chance.”

Last week, Lew released a six-page report on the dangers of default, part of a campaign to pressure House Republicans to vote to raise the debt ceiling before the Oct. 17 deadline.

“The United States has never defaulted on its obligations, and the U S. dollar and Treasury securities are at the center of the international financial system,” according to the report. “A default would be unprecedented and has the potential to be catastrophic: credit markets could freeze, the value of the dollar could plummet, U.S. interest rates could skyrocket, the negative spillovers could reverberate around the world, and there might be a financial crisis and recession that could echo the events of 2008 or worse.”

The report says that even the possibility of a default could roil financial markets and damage the economy with sharp declines in household wealth, increases in the cost of financing for businesses and households and a fall in private-sector confidence. It says that if the government shutdown drags on, it could make the U.S. economy even more susceptible to the adverse effects from a debt ceiling impasse than it was prior to the shutdown.

In 2011, according to the senior Treasury officials, just the possibility of potential default led to substantial effects on the U.S. economy.

On FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Lew said the government shutdown, now in its sixth day, was causing “real damage to the American people.”

The partial shutdown of the federal government for the first time in nearly two decades has furloughed 800,000 employees, shuttered monuments and parks and cut off some services.

“They need to do their job,'” Lew said on FOX. “They need to open the government.”

Lew said Obama wants to negotiate with House Republicans, but reiterated what the president has said all week — that he will not do that until after they re-open the government at current spending levels. “The president wants to negotiate,” he said.

… No Kidding , Chris [FNC on Shutdown] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,October 6th,2013

Although President Barack Obama has said that negotiating over the debt ceiling would be unprecedented, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace isn’t buying it.

[link] — video to the piece …

“The White House keeps saying, the president says this has never happened before, we’ve never had a negotiation on the debt

limit,” Wallace told POLITICO for this week’s “Turn the Table” series. “That’s bull. It just isn’t true.”
“They’ve had negotiations over the debt limit sometimes on related budget issues, sometimes on completely unrelated issues for years.”

“When you look at the dynamics of what’s going on inside the Republican caucus, I don’t think they’re there yet and ready to give anything up. And if you go out and listen to the public words of Sen. Reid and the president, there’s no give there either.”

… Um, Dan , What the President was or was not Doing Does Matter …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,May 19th,2013

.. POTUS is not just head of state , but head of the government . He is command  responsible for the actions of his appointees (including you , stupid) . What is going on , whether he is aware or not , matters . It always matters .

.. To say it does not is itself offensive , Dan . You would serve Mr. Obama best by submitting your resignation , Dan . You are a disaster as WHCD , and you do not present convincing spin , much less arguments , in presentation of the Administration ‘ s message . What you do do , sucks !

Host Chris Wallace reminds Pfeiffer that Obama didn’t really talk with Secretary   Clinton, Secretary Panetta, or Martin Dempsey ,       chairman of the Joint Chiefs of  Staff, that night. “He was talking to his national security staff,” Pfeiffer insists.

Asked about whether the president entered the Situation Room, Pfeiffer says, “I don’t  remember what room the president was in on that night, and that’s a largely  irrelevant fact.”

Pfeiffer then argues that Wallace’s questions about the president’s handling of the Benghazi terror attack are “offensive.”

.. A transcript on an exchange this morning [May 19th , 2013] from FoxNews’ Fox News Sunday … [h/t the Weekly Standard] .  A video link of the exchange is posted here .

UPDATE: Here’s a full rush transcript of the exchange:

WALLACE: let’s turn to benghazi. he had a meeting with panetta in the afternoon, heard

about this on an unrelated subject, wanted them to deploy forces as soon as possible.

the next time he shows up, hillary clinton says she spoke to him at around 10:00 that

night after the attack at the consulate, not the annex, but the attack at the consulate

had ended. question, what did the president do the rest of that night to pursue


PFEIFFER:  the president was kept up to do throughout the entire night, from the moment

it started till the end. this is a horrible tragedy, people that he sent abroad whose

lives are in risk, people who work for him. i recognize that there’s a series of

conspiracy theories the republicans are spinning about this since the night it

happened, but there’s been an independent review of this, congress has held hearings,

we provided 250,000 pages of — 250,000 pages of documents up there. there’s been 11

hearings, 20 staff briefings. everyone has found the same thing. this is a tragedy. the

question is not what happened that night. the question is what are we going to do to

move forward and ensure it doesn’t happen again? congress should act on what the

president called for earlier this week, to pass legislation to actually allow us to

implement the recommendations of the accountability review board. when we send

diplomats off into far-flung places, there’s inherent risk. we need to mitigate that


WALLACE: with all due respect, you didn’t answer my question. what did the president do

that night?

PFEIFFER:  kept up to date with the events as they were happening.

WALLACE: he didn’t talk to the secretary of state except for the one time when the

first attack was over. he didn’t talk to the secretary of defense, he didn’t talk to

chiefs. the chairman of the joint who was he talking to?

PFEIFFER:  his national security staff, his national security council.

WALLACE: was he in the situation room?

PFEIFFER:  he was kept up to date throughout the day.

WALLACE: do you know know whether he was in the situation room?

PFEIFFER:  i don’t know what room he was in that night. that’s a largely irrelevant


WALLACE: well —

PFEIFFER:  the premise of your question, somehow there was something that could have

been done differently, okay, that would have changed the outcome here. the

accountability roof board has looked at this, people have looked at this. it’s a

horrible tragedy, and we have to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

WALLCE: here’s the point, though, the ambassador goes missing, the first ambassador in

more than 30 years is killed. four americans, including the ambassador, are killed.

dozens of americans are in jeopardy. the president at 4:00 in the afternoon says to the

chairman of the joint chiefs to deploy forces. no forces are deployed. where is he

while all this is going on?

PFEIFFER:  this has been tested to by —

WALLACE: well, no. no one knows where he is, who was involved, the —

PFEIFFER:  the suggestion of your question that somehow the president —

WALLACE: i just want to know the answer.

PFEIFFER:  the assertions from republicans that the president didn’t take action is

offensive. there’s no evidence to support it.

WALLACE: i’m simply asking a question. where was he? what did he do? how did he respond

in who told him you can’t deploy forces and what was his president?

PFEIFFER:  the president was in the white house that day, kept up to date by his

national security team, spoke to the join
