Would that not eliminate Hillary Clinton 2016 and Joe Biden too?

ABC News
President Obama, acknowledging he's taken some political "dings" during his time in the White House, said in an exclusive interview with ABC News that the American people will want that "new car smell" when it comes to the 2016 presidential campaign, suggesting he may not have a prominent role on the campaign trail as the country prepares to select his replacement.

"I think the American people, you know, they're going to want -- you know, that new car smell. You know, their own -- they want to drive something off the lot that doesn't have as much mileage as me," Obama told ABC News Chief anchor George Stephanopoulos.

Lindsey Graham: House GOP Benghazi Report 'Full of Crap' (VIDEO)

Graham: The House Intelligence committee is doing a lousy job policing their own
CNN Gloria Borger: 'The report said no one lied. Period.'
Graham: That's a complete bunch of garbage!

Lindsey Graham on Sunday blasted a House GOP-led investigation that recently debunked myths about the 2012 Benghazi attack.

“I think the report is full of crap,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The House Intelligence Committee released a report on Friday evening, which took two years to compile, that found there was no outright intelligence failure during the attack, there was no delay in the rescue of U.S. personnel and there was no political cover-up by Obama administration officials.

After Graham was asked whether the report exonerates the administration, he initially ignored the question, and then eventually said “no.”

Hillary Clinton to Fundraise For Mary Landrieu in NY

Mary Landrieu currently trails Bill Cassidy by 15 points according to a Rasmussen survey that came out Thursday. Hillary will be able to add this one to the long list of midterm losers.

Hillary Clinton will headline a fundraiser in New York City for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) on Dec. 1, according to an invitation to the event.

Landrieu is facing an uphill climb in her Dec. 6 runoff election against Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy, who is looking to unseat the Democratic incumbent. The cocktail event at a private home is the latest Clinton effort for Democratic Senate candidates in the midterms.

Several potential Republican presidential rivals to Clinton have sought to tie her to Democrats' losses on Election Day. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) branded the vanquished Democrats whom she campaigned for as "Hillary's losers."

Recent polls show Landrieu trailing Cassidy by double digits.

She also suffered a setback when her bill approving the Keystone pipeline fell one vote short in the Senate this week.

Landrieu pushed the vote to tout her energy credentials. A similar measure backed by Cassidy passed the House.

More Cosby Shows Canceled As More Women Come Forward

Performances by Bill Cosby in Nevada, Illinois, Arizona, South Carolina and Washington State have been canceled as more women come forward accusing the entertainer of sexually assaulting them years ago.

Cosby's latest accuser is (Incredible Hulk) Lou Ferrigno's wife Carla

ABC News
The director of The Broadway Center in Tacoma, Washington said Friday that it has canceled Cosby's April 18 appearance because it conflicts with the nonprofit organization's mission "to strengthen our community's social fabric by building empathy, furthering education and sharing joy."

"We were not confident in our ability to meet those objectives by proceeding with Mr. Cosby's performance," David Fischer said.

Cosby's lawyer has said claims by four women are untrue; a statement from Cosby on Sunday dismissed most of the others as "decade-old, discredited allegations."

A sold-out Cosby comedy show in Melbourne, Florida, Friday night went on as planned. The 77-year-old comedian, wearing cargo pants and a shirt that said "Hello Friend," took the stage to a standing ovation and loud applause. One person shouted, "We love you Bill."

Outside the theater, one protester held a sign that read, "Rape is no joke."

Cosby's producers said at least 29 other shows remain on his schedule through May 2015.

Video- Obama Heckled During Immigration Speech in Las Vegas

Reports are that this 'heckler' was shouting at Obama over his executive order not going far enough.  Amazing, every single time O gets disrupted during these speeches on immigration, it's some activist or dreamer pushing the president for more of his own agenda. I call BS. Dude has probably got an Organizing For America shirt on.

A day after he announced executive actions that will defer the deportation of around 5 million undocumented immigrants, President Obama was still getting heckled by immigration reform advocates looking for more action.

Speaking at Del Sol High School in Las Vegas, Nevada -- where he laid out his principles for comprehensive immigration reform nearly two years ago -- Mr. Obama detailed the elements of his current plan.

About halfway through the president's remarks, activists Jose PatiƱo and Angel Fernandez, "dreamers" from Arizona whose parents brought them into the country when they were children, asked Mr. Obama why their were parents left behind: "Why did you leave my mom behind?" they shouted.

Mr. Obama responded, "Not everybody will qualify, and that's the truth. That's why we're going to have to pass a bill."

The hecklers continued, prompting an exasperated-looking president to say, "I heard you and what I'm saying is, we're still going to have to pass a bill. This is the first step, it's not the only step." (CBS News)


House Oversight Committee Calls Gruber to Testify About Obamacare

Hearing on the ACA will be on December 9th

WASHINGTON -- The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has asked Jonathan Gruber, the economist and Obama administration adviser who admitted that "lack of transparency" helped pass the health law known as Obamacare, to testify about those statements.

Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., announced a Dec. 9 hearing on the Affordable Care Act, with Gruber and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner as star witnesses.

They won't get friendly questioning.

"From the outset, the health law has been the poster child for this Administration's broken transparency promises," Issa said in a statement. "I expect Mr. Gruber and Administrator Tavenner to testify publicly next month about the arrogance and deceptions surrounding the passage and implementation of Obamacare."

Incoming House Oversight and Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz was asked about Jonathan Gruber being called to testify last night on Fox News Greta

"You can't have somebody that outrageous making those types of statements and expect congress to just ignore it"


Libs in Berkeley Vote To Put 'Global Warming Alert' Labels on Gas Pumps

Insane. The Berkeley City Council voted to draft a proposal that will put stickers on gas pumps citywide to warn consumers that burning fuel contributes to global warming.

In a first move toward getting tougher on global warming, the Berkeley City Council on Tuesday night voted to draft language to mandate the city's gas stations label their gas pumps with "Global Warming Alert" stickers, warning customers that filling up emits dangerous carbon dioxide.

The vote passed 7-2, with councilmembers Susan Wengraf and Gordon Wozniak voting no.

The city manager will now direct staff to direct write an ordinance over the next three months to detail the plan, which may be put into place by next spring.

San Francisco is drafting a similar ordinance that the city's Board of Supervisors could vote into law by March. The proposals in both Bay Area cities are thought to be the first of their kind in the U.S.

Berkeley and San Francisco are well aware that they will likely be sued by the Western States Petroleum Association. The oil-industry lobbying group has already told the cities that the fuel station carbon dioxide labels "violate the First Amendment’s prohibition against compelled speech


VIDEO- Boehner: Obama is Damaging the Presidency Itself

'We will not stand idle as the president undermines the rule of law'

Washington- The immigration showdown between Congress and the White House is fully underway.

In a press conference Friday morning, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) slammed President Barack Obama yet again and vowed that his chamber will move to thwart Obama's new executive actions on immigration reform.

"He's refused to listen to the American people. The president has taken actions that he himself has said are those of a king or an emperor — not an American president," Boehner said. "He's damaging the presidency itself."
