Obama "has been remarkably ill-adept at policy making, policy selling, adapting to changing circumstances, finding a constancy in his behavior.
"Instead, it's all this solipsism: me, me, me. We've seen over the last six weeks how his position on ISIS has shifted, on Syria, and even now how his thinking about treating Ebola is shifting. He can't find a core because I don't think he has a policy core." --John Podhoretz 10.08.14
“I actually had a boyfriend who I dated awhile ago, he and I got in a huge fight because I watch Bill O’Reilly every night in bed and he’s like, ‘I don’t want to watch Bill O’Reilly with you in bed every night. That kind of ultimately led to our breakup.” --Meghan McCain to US News & World Report's Nikki Scwab

We’re just under a month away from the elections and once again, sorry to say, we Democrats have failed to make our case.
...We have a platform that says the major focus for Democrats is, very simply, to ensure equality, to lift up the lower and middle classes, to keep our bodies healthy and our environment safe, to never be Republicans." --Ramona Grigg 10.04.14
“You can look at the dysfunction in Washington, the wariness about politics, the low approval ratings. That’s had an impact. But we’ve got to adjust; we’ve got to evolve.” --Phil Griffin 10.14.14.
...Do not listen to the hysterical voices on the radio and the television or read the fear-provoking words online. The people who say and write hysterical things are being very irresponsible........We do not have an outbreak of Ebola in the United States. Nowhere. We do have two healthcare workers who contracted the disease from a dying man. They are isolated. There is no information to suggest that the virus has spread to anyone in the general population in America. Not one person in the general population in the United States." --Shepard Smith 10.15.14

Now we have a major newspaper apologizing for an editorial cartoon. The cartoonist explained the intent. That should be enough.reports The Associated Press. The cartoon, which the paper says was meant to satirize the White House intruder incident, features a man taking a bath while President Obama brushes his teeth. "Have you tried the new watermelon flavored toothpaste?" the man asks POTUS.
Jerry Holbert, the cartoonist, has apologized, saying he was inspired after finding watermelon-flavored toothpaste at his home. “I was completely naive or innocent to any racial connotations,” he said. “I wasn’t thinking along those lines at all.”
The newspaper has also apologized, saying, “Both the newspaper and cartoonist intended no such inference and immediately apologized for the pain its publication may have caused."
The Boston-area NAACP organized the meeting between itself, officials from the newspaper, and the community members. It has also called on the newspaper to provide diversity training.
