Obama superfan Katy Perry offers to write Hillary Clinton ‘theme song’

http://twitter.com/#!/katyperry/status/480105360452104193

Katy Perry, the singer who campaigned for President Obama in 2012 dressed as a filled-in ballot for the Obama/Biden ticket, isn’t wasting any time picking a favorite in the 2016 campaign.

Appearing with a copy of “Hard Choices,” Perry told Hillary Clinton that she’d write her a “theme song” if she needed one.

Good question. Bimbo eruptions? Cattle futures? Benghazi?

http://twitter.com/#!/UCFH/status/480105822781849600

I knew you were
You were gonna come to me
And here you are
But you better choose carefully
‘Cause I, I’m capable of anything
Of anything and everything

Hey, that actually does kind of work.

‘Nothingburger’ with cheese: Brad Thor pans Obama’s Ebola press conference

http://twitter.com/#!/BradThor/status/527175640714575872

President Obama held a press conference Tuesday afternoon on the administration’s response to the Ebola crisis. It was a brief affair that ended with a promise that the president would know more Wednesday, when he planned to meet with doctors and public health workers in order to get their input (and maybe a photo or two).

As far as today’s press conference, it was all about quelling fear and trusting science — enough so that author Brad Thor made a drinking game out of it.

 

Anyone else need a lab coat? It just screams, “Science!”

Though the speech was dominated by mentions of science, the president did praise doctors and other health care workers for “doing God’s work.” But what about the troops who have been committed to the cause?

Ed Henry destroys Obama is not good at ‘political theater’ claim with one point

Truth.

As Twitchy reported, Obama made the enraging claim that the reason he should not have golfed after his presser on the beheading of James Foley was due to “optics.” That was his lesson learned: He’s just not mindful enough of the “theater of politics,” you see.

White House: The Federal Government Still Opposes Legalizing Marijuana

“The Federal Government opposes drug legalization because it runs counter to a public health and safety approach to drug policy,” a White House official tells BuzzFeed News after Loretta Lynch testifies.

WASHINGTON — When Loretta Lynch told senators “I do not support the legalization of marijuana” during her confirmation hearing for Attorney General Wednesday, she upset a delicate balance for an Obama administration that has expressed support for current federal law banning pot use while also signaling a desire to loosen federal restrictions on the drug.

A White House official told BuzzFeed News Wednesday evening that Lynch’s unequivocal opposition to marijuana legalization didn’t set a new tone.

“Our position has been clear — marijuana remains illegal under Federal law,” the official said in an email when asked if Lynch stated the administration position in her confirmation hearing. “The Federal Government opposes drug legalization because it runs counter to a public health and safety approach to drug policy.”

But Obama has not been as hardline about marijuana as Lynch was Wednesday. Speaking to YouTube vlogger Hank Green last week, Obama said that pot was not a priority as the legal landscape has become muddied by states legalizing recreational use.

“The position of my administration has been that we still have federal laws that classify marijuana as an illegal substance,” Obama said. “But we’re not going to spend a lot of resources trying to turn back decisions that have been made at the state level on this issue.”

Obama told the New Yorker last year that he doesn’t think marijuana is any more dangerous than alcohol or cigarettes. In the interview with Green, he openly questioned the government’s current approach to marijuana enforcement.

“You know, what we have done is instead of focusing on treatment, the same way we focused, say, with tobacco or drunk driving or other problems where we treat it as a public health problem, we’ve treated this exclusively as a criminal problem,” Obama said. “And I think that it’s been counterproductive, and it’s been, you know, devastating in a lot of minority communities. It presents the possibility at least of unequal application of the law. And that has to be changed.”

As he has in the past, Obama pivoted the question about marijuana to the push for changes to federal sentencing laws for drug offenders, which he has supported since the beginning of his presidency.

Since Colorado and Washington passed their state laws legalizing pot, the Justice Department has promised not to make prosecutions of recreational or medicinal users of marijuana a priority.

The White House official reiterated that stance after Lynch’s testimony Wednesday. If confirmed, Lynch would be in charge of managing the prosecutorial discretion rules as Attorney General.

“The Administration’s position on enforcement has been clear and consistent: while the prosecution of drug traffickers remains an important priority, targeting individual marijuana users — especially those with serious illnesses and their caregivers — is not the best allocation of limited Federal law enforcement resources,” the official wrote.

Obama invokes Ferguson, Mo. in speech to UN about ‘violent extremism’

Obama brought up Ferguson at the UN – are you kidding me?

— Nice Deb (@NiceDeb) September 24, 2014

President Obama spoke to the United Nations General Assembly today about the terrorist threat posed by ISIS and other extremist groups. During Obama’s speech he threw the situation in Ferguson, Mo. into the mix:

Pres at UN says: At times America has failed to live up to its own ideals, and we have plenty of our own problems – cites Ferguson, MO

problem with bringing up Ferguson at the UnitedNations after talking about violent extremism is that it suggests they are morally equal.
