President Obama has nominated Debo Adegbile to be Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division. Adegbile is best known for heading up the NAACP Legal Defense Fund’s race-based assault on the integrity of a dead Philadelphia police office in a quest to get his murderer, Mumia Abu-Jamal, off of death row. Adegbile is thus the perfect nominee to serve in the position held during most of the Obama administration by radical race-monger Tom Perez, now Obama’s Secretary of Labor.” – Power Line

Bob Gates might just have handed Republicans (and maybe even a Democrat or two) an issue in their potential fight to keep Hillary Rodham Clinton from the presidency in 2016.” – Washington Post

Another midterm election beckons, and over the next 10 months we’ll see headlines about a thousand supposedly critical developments—the “game changers” and the “tipping points.” But we all know there aren’t a thousand powerful drivers of the vote. I’d argue that three factors are paramount: the president, the economy and the election playing field. And, at least preliminarily, those three factors seem to be pointing toward Republican gains in both houses in the 2014 midterms.” – Larry Sabato/POLITICO

It’s helpful to mark these milestones every year. While President Obama lectures his opposition about unprecedented obstruction and lack of governance, he continues to miss the most basic of statutory requirements of governance every year.” – Mary Katherine Ham/Hot Air

It is pointless to try to distinguish inequality of outcomes from inequality of opportunity. There is no more right to “equal opportunity” than to “equal outcomes.” An American child of wealthy parents has more opportunity than a Cambodian child of destitute parents. Does that mean the American parents must sacrifice their child’s future to increasing the opportunities open to Cambodian children? Yes, say the egalitarians. No, said the Founding Fathers, to the equivalent question in their time.” – Forbes

“This is brilliant. Mark Levin lays out his scenario of how to combat Obama on the economy. And it’s very creative.” – The Right Scoop

“Yeah, Obama lacked commitment to victory in Afghanistan, and in a subsequent post I noticed that the sun rises in the East (and the sky was blue!). There is no way it took Gates until March 2011 to figure that out.” – Just One Minute

“[This is] a guy who we used to talk to a lot at Fox,” Glenn said of Zimmerman on radio this morning. “He would come on the air with us just to do technical stuff. And he would say, ‘Glenn, you are a little extreme on what you are willing to say on the air… I see the same direction, but I’m not really sure that it’s as bad as you think it is.’ This is the guy who has just made this call: I believe that the Dow Jones is going to start a two-year decline which could eventually take it down more than 70%.” – Glenn Beck

“‘The President disagrees with Secretary Gates’ assessment – from his leadership on the Balkans in the Senate, to his efforts to end the war in Iraq, Joe Biden has been one of the leading statesmen of his time, and has helped advance America’s leadership in the world,’ said national security Council spokesperson Caitlin Hayden in a statement.” – Washington Examiner

“106 former New York city workers, including firefighters and police officers, have been charged in a 205 count indictment for faking mental disabilities in order to claim federal social security benefits.” – Gateway Pundit
