Talking about the CNN and NBC Hillary Clinton programming, Reince Priebus: “I do know what’s very clear is that the company that puts these things on the air to promote Hillary Clinton, including CNN, is the company that is not going to be involved in our debates. Period. Very simple.”
Talking about the new “moderate” Iranian president, “Iranian President Hassan Rowhani has appointed as his defense minister an Iranian general who was implicated in the 1983 bombing that killed 241 American servicemen in Lebanon, according to an Israeli intelligence official.”
Talking about President Obama’s claim to have “decimated” al-Qaeda: “Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) warned Sunday that al-Qaeda is ‘on the rise’ 12 years after the attacks of 9/11, despite the death of Osama bin Laden.”
Talking about the noxious Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), Ana Navarro: “I think he’s a mediocre congressman with no legislative record and the only time he makes national press is when he comes out and says something offensive about the undocumented or Hispanics. . . .This is a man who couldn’t even get elected senator in Iowa. That’s why he’s not running there. This is a man whose district has been polled and supports immigration reform in the majority. So, you know, he is — this is his call to fame.” You go, girl!
Talking about that honest conversation about race, Juan Williams lets it rip. “Race has been the topic over the last couple weeks, but if we’re going to do this right, if we’re going to have an honest discussion among people who care about the problems inside the black community, we have to be dealing with honest brokers. Unfortunately, a lot of people in the so-called civil rights community are frauds, outright hucksters. Two of the worst: civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton and Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson. Their goal: demonize white people, especially conservatives like Bill O’Reilly, so they don’t have to deal with the real problems that continue to plague the black community.” Read the whole thing.
Talking about buyer’s remorse. I wonder if Virginia Dems wish they’d picked someone else to run for governor. “McAuliffe’s GreenTech car company launched with high hopes, but reality dogs campaign.”
Talking about human rights requires more of this. Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations: “Bureaucracies are built. Positions become entrenched. And while the United Nations has done tremendous good in the world, there are times when the organization has lost its way, when politics and ideology get in the way of impact.”
