FIAF-The Tempest Edition
Quick review: the unemployment number went up to 7.9% last month, paired with negative GDP, increasing health care costs, higher taxes, and increased government spending.
So, I thought it may be a good time to review how the Obama Hope and Change train has changed all our lives. Not regarding the failed promises he made about raising the Oceans, closing Gitmo, creating a more transparent government,etc.
We KNOW how all that has turned out.
I mean more personally. How has your life changed since Obama was emaculated?
Go ahead and fee free to mention in comments how Obama has changed your life for the better!
After the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks, the State Department has treated the names and faces of the DS agents who survived those attacks as if they were classified information.
This remarkable about-face raises two questions: Why can’t the American people know the names–and hear the stories–of the heroic DS agents who fought the terrorists who attacked our mission in Benghazi? Why can’t these courageous survivors deliver their eyewitnesses accounts directly to the U.S. Congress?
Plus, the most “respected” woman in America is a liar:
However, testifying in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton revealed that until then—four months after the attacks—she had only spoken with one of the DS agents who had survived the Benghazi attack. She also said, “I still have a DS agent at Walter Reed seriously injured.”
Her reason for not talking to the surviving DS agents to hear their version of what happened: “We did not think it was appropriate for us to talk to them before the FBI conducted their interviews.”
Clinton did not explain why it would not be appropriate for her to talk to her own State Department personnel deployed in Benghazi at the time of the 9/11/12 terrorist attack until they had been questioned by the FBI, but the Senate Homeland Security Committee revealed in its own report that the FBI had interviewed all of the Benghazi survivors at a U.S. airbase in Germany on Sept. 15-16.
Thus, more than four months had passed since the FBI had interviewed these five DS agents and Secretary Clinton had still only spoken to one of the five.

That’s it folks. That’s his week. Well, not exactly. There was one more big event.
For real. The Washingtonian has the scoop, reporting on Thursday that a Vogue crew was seen setting up camp in the White House residence, a.k.a. where President and Michelle Obama live. The Washingtonian also “hears” that photographer Annie Leibovitz is doing the honors, and that it might be for the March issue’s cover.
Another tantalizing tidbit: President Obama’s schedule is cleared for the day… meaning maybe he’s involved in the shoot, too? Squeee!
Of course, there wasn’t much to “clear” from his schedule. Heh.
: Mark Knoller, CBS News’ White House Correspondent, confirmed Vogue’s presence in the White House today and also tweeted: “Vogue also had a representative on the press plane to and from Las Vegas Tuesday.”
Good thing Obama doesn’t have anything going on and is able to focus on massaging his public image.
I dig these guys.
