…and he wanted them since he was a senator.
He lied when he said he wouldn’t come after our guns. All that was needed was a tragedy to exploit.
He told this to John Lott when he was still a Senator.
…Blind Sheik to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt?
He can’t be THAT stupid, can he?
The Lockerbee douche bag being turned over to Libya was such a success for the UK that Obama wants to repeat their wise decision. On humanitarian grounds, of course.
I’m going to inch out onto the limb and predict that the Foreign Policy President will not, repeat not, be handing over this cretin before election day.
The U.S. State Department is currently in negotiations with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as “the Blind Sheikh,” for humanitarian and health reasons, a source close to the the Obama administration told TheBlaze…
The negotiations are allegedly part of the ongoing discussions with the Egyptian government to resolve the crisis plaguing the Middle East, the source told TheBlaze. Calls to the State Department for comment referred us to the Department of Justice, and nothing has been confirmed.
The Blind Sheikh is serving a life sentence in American prison for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. His release has been called one of the top priorities of the new Islamist administration in Egypt. Many have pinpointed the cause of last week‘s unrest in Egypt to be protests over the Blind Sheikh’s release– not an anti-Islam YouTube video.
Read Tom Joscelyn’s post from last week on the blind sheikh as a cause celebre among Egyptian Islamists during the embassy assault. No less a jihadi than Ayman al-Zawahiri mentioned the sheikh by name in his video eulogy for Abu Yahya al-Libi released on September 10th, the day before the attack in Benghazi and the standoff in Cairo. It’s also true, as the Blaze claims, that the sheikh’s release is a goal for the new Islamist government. Morsi mentioned him more than once on the campaign trail; there are enough hardboiled Islamists in the Egyptian electorate that securing Rahman’s release would be a huge political coup for Morsi and the MB.
After Toure’s assertion that Joe Biden’s “chains” comment was not racial but Mitt Romney’s criticism of it and the tone of the Obama/Biden team somehow was, I was by turns annoyed at the hypocrisy, outraged at the crudity in which it was expressed, and saddened by the unrelenting desire of a portion of the commentariat on the Left to smear anyone who opposes Barack Obama and his policies as racists and haters. I’m glad that Allahpundit wrote the excellent post, rather than me; I needed more time to approach the issue rationally, and frankly to pray about it and for our nation.
,,,builds on the SCOAMF’s stupid comments.
And the money quote: “President Obama attacks success, and therefore under Obama we have less success.”
You first assholes. You first.
When the DNC and their super PACs pony up their list of donors, then, and only then would I even entertain the idea. But until then, the GOP super PACs need to tell these asshats to go pound sand.
I think the only reason they’re trying this shit is because the super PAC ads are kicking their ass.

(Reuters) – Democratic President Barack Obama’s top campaign lawyer filed a complaint with the federal election regulator on Tuesday, demanding that the well-heeded and high-spending Republican advocacy group Crossroads GPS disclose its donors.
This is the latest Democratic effort to slow down Crossroads GPS, run by former aide to President George W. Bush Karl Rove, which plans to spend some $300 million alongside its sister “super” political action committee to help Republican candidates ahead of the November 6 election, largely through advertising.
Republican non-profit and “Super PAC” groups have been far outpaced their Democratic rivals in fundraising and spending, which expected to help presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney bridge the fundraising gap between his and Obama’s election campaigns.
The libtards are beside themselves over Obamacare. They know this shit will get shot down, so they do anything and everything that they can think of to intimidate the SCOTUS. Intimidation, it’s their signature move.
Here’s a well written article on the issue.
The left tries to intimidate the High Court on ObamaCare.
You can tell the Supreme Court is getting closer to its historic ObamaCare ruling because the left is making one last attempt to intimidate the Justices. The latest effort includes taunting Chief Justice John Roberts that if the Court overturns any of the law, he’ll forever be defined as a partisan “activist.”
Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy recently took the extraordinary step of publicly lobbying the Chief Justice after oral argument but before its ruling. “I trust that he will be a Chief Justice for all of us and that he has a strong institutional sense of the proper role of the judicial branch,” the Democrat declared on the Senate floor. “The conservative activism of recent years has not been good for the Court.”
