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.”

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

Population: 780,588

13. Alaska

Population: 732,984

14. Washington DC

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
