Ed Henry destroys Obama is not good at ‘political theater’ claim with one point

http://twitter.com/#!/Neoavatara/status/508638315609079808

Truth.

As Twitchy reported, Obama made the enraging claim that the reason he should not have golfed after his presser on the beheading of James Foley was due to “optics.” That was his lesson learned: He’s just not mindful enough of the “theater of politics,” you see.

WaPo swiftly tried to run to the president’s aide. Lapdogs gotta be lapdogs:

Ah, the days of yore! Speaking of days of yore, Fox News’ Ed Henry crushed the absurd claim with one easy reminder:

Bam.

A good exit point, though:

Yep. Everything everywhere ever is all about him.

Meet the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winners!

Can you win the Nobel Peace Prize multiple times? Because I enjoyed Obama winning so very much in 2009 that I want it to happen again.

— Mollie (@MZHemingway) October 8, 2014

Sorry, no repeat for the president.

But well-deserved congratulations do go out to Kailash Satyarthi, a children’s rights activist from India and to Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani teen who was shot by the Taliban because she wanted to go to school:

Kailash Satyarthi, 60, and Malala Yousafzay, 17, show that you can work for social justice at any age #NobelPrize2014 pic.twitter.com/v8ZRv8bGRa

— James Martin, SJ (@JamesMartinSJ) October 10, 2014

The Wall Street Journal has a great write-up on the two here:

Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai. Details: http://t.co/U0yyWY2M84 #NobelPrize2014

— Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) October 10, 2014

As a reminder, here’s what the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner had to say to 2009’s winner about drone attacks:

Today, Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize. 2 years ago, she told Obama "drone attacks are fueling terrorism" http://t.co/BrTeCq048S

— McClatchyDC (@McClatchyDC) October 10, 2014

So, how’s that working out?

Malala’s prize is long overdue and there are many who thought she should have won it last year, like we did:

Although there is talk that the Nobel committee is playing politics with this year’s winners, too:

The Nobel Peace Prize committee, having disgraced itself by hastily honoring Obama, stoops to play the Indian-Pakistani, Hindu-Muslim game.

— Brahma Chellaney (@Chellaney) October 10, 2014

Don't care any bit who wins Nobel Peace Prize. It's the most political of the political prizes world over. A living joke being Obama himself

Finally, in other Nobel Peace prize news, Americans want President Obama to give his back:

Sgt. Tahmooressi freed; ‘Obama to release selfie looking at Mexican border’

http://twitter.com/#!/coloradorebecca/status/528347681085984768

As Twitchy reported, Rep. Matt Salmon posted a statement Friday night thanking the many people instrumental in securing the release of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi from Mexico. Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, was also singled out for his efforts in freeing Tahmooressi.

Though Salmon’s list was extensive, he (or someone on his staff) retweeted the following posts suggesting that another name should have been among those helping to free our #MarineHeldInMexico.

For their part, the family of Sgt. Tahmooressi issued a lengthy statement through Montel Williams’ spokesman offering their thanks to Williams and to the president … of Serving California. No mention of a certain other president, though.

The Obama White House may have violated the law when they released five Taliban leaders without first notifying congressional leaders, but according to conservative talk show host Tammy Bruce, that wasn’t anything that couldn’t be made right by a simple change to the presidential cell phone ringtone:

Jake Tapper’s corpse-hiding Siri experiment uncovers more than expected [photo]

Hilarious and kinda creepy! Check out CNN’s Jake Tapper’s Siri experiment:

as an experiment, this just happened:

> What, again?— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) August 13, 2014

Wait … what?!

http://twitter.com/#!/tedtidwell/status/499580495966265344

Heh. Tapper clarified that it was in response to this story:

http://twitter.com/#!/jaketapper/status/499572734528327680

Oh dear.

Other Twitter users performed similar “experiments.”

Oh, Siri! Alas, the news story may not be true. It seems Tapper’s experiment may have uncovered some falsehoods in reporting. Tapper has for some reason deleted his tweets, but here is the gist of it:
