Nice Try! Obama attempts to brush off ugly campaign tone

For the first time in nearly two months, President Obama addressed the White House Press Corp and faced more than a few questions about the tone of his campaign. Despite the divisive and fallacious rhetoric spewed on a daily basis by campaign advisors David Axelrod and Stephanie Cutter, Obama maintained the his campaign is by no means negative. After all, accusing your rival of committing a felony and killing someone is all in good fun.

“Guess who does a press conference yesterday and it's ridiculous,” Glenn asked at the start of the radio show this morning. “There has never been in American history a bigger group of partial truth tellers and downright liars than we have seen from team Obama and the Democratic Party every day.”

Not surprisingly, more than one reporter asked Obama about the borderline ugly tone his campaign has taken as of late that wreaks more of desperation than of a man who is running as an incumbent for reelection.

REPORTER: Are you comfortable with the tone that's being set by your campaign? Have you asked them to change their tone?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I'm not sure all of those characterizations are accurate. For example, nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon. If you watch me on the campaign trail here's what I'm talking about: I'm talking about how he we put Americans back to work.

Considering Obama campaign advisor Stephanie Cutter started this whole felony conversation when she said that Mitt Romney was misrepresenting his position at Bain Capital through the SEC, the President cannot in good conscience stand in front of a group of people and say his campaign is not making accusations.

“Did Obama lie? Technically, maybe not. But did he tell the truth? Absolutely not,” Glenn said. “The question Americans need to ask themselves is: Is this the kind of President you kind of sort of want leading us kind of sort of or not really kind of sort of?”

A CBS News reporter asked Obama his thoughts on the Super PAC ad that suggested Romney was responsible for a woman’s death. Again, the President pleaded the fifth.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: This is an ad that has barely run and this is not one I approved. And it's not true.

“As for the ad barely running, that's probably why he held the surprise press conference. The campaign got so much heat for the ad he had to come out and distance himself from it. These are flat out full frontal lies,” Glenn said.

Instead of focusing on his own policy plans for his second term, Obama used the press conference to lambast Romney’s credentials and policies.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Today it was reported in the Washington Post that the firms owned [by Romney] were outsourcing pioneers. We don't need an outsourcing pioneer in the Oval Office. We need a President who will fight for American jobs. That's what my plan will do.

What is your plan exactly, Mr. President? “He didn't get to his plan. He got to the smear, and then he threw the word jobs in there,” Glenn commented.

So what yesterday’s spontaneous press conference seems to say is that despite all of the name-calling and mudslinging, the complete disregard for facts and the fabrications, Obama is remarkably satisfied with the overall tone of his campaign.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If you look at the overall trajectory of my campaign, we point out sharp difference between the candidates, but we don't go out-of-bounds.

“We don't go out-of-bounds,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “I would hate to see what he considers out-of-bounds.”

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
