Obama's day ahead

2012 politics is being put on the back-burner today - slightly - as President Obama gets set to address the United Nations General Assembly in New York City followed by an early afternoon speech at the Clinton Global Initiative. He will return to the White House at 2:35 p.m. this afternoon. Of course, the president has taken heat from Republicans for not meeting with any foreign leaders while in New York as has long been customary while the UN is in session. The White House has responded that the president often talks with a variety of leaders and scheduling issues prevented any meetings this week.

    If you take a shot of vodka after every lie he tells you'll probably die from alcohol poisoning. We all know he's going to lay it on thick today. You'll need wings to stay above the BS.

      Please Kool-Aid. You have been drinking more RED BULL i see. Obama has done a great job.

      He saved us from another great depression. The Republicans left him with an economic mess and two wars and now they are complaining that he did not clean it up fast enough.

        Hey Lionel, were you recently one of those interviewed by Howard Stern? You sound just as clueless as they do but go ahead, pour another glass of kool-aid. Who needs reality?

        If Obama had been doing his job to protect our Ambassador ... instead of campaigning and fund raising ... Ambassador Stevens and the Seals would still be alive today ... and, Obama wouldn't have to explain his inactions with his usual flowery speeches ... walking back statements ... or, blaming it on 'syntax'. Everyone knows Obama's eleventh hour promises are nothing more than a desperate attempt to hold onto power on November 6th. Obama has no credibility.
        Save America ... Replace Obama on November 6th !!!

        Howard....Regardless of what you think our President will be campaigning...so move on and get over it.

        @ Jean ... Our Ambassador was sodomized ... dragged through the streets ... and murdered ... along with our Navy Seals ... and, instead of doing his job, Obama covered up by calling it a spontaneous mob, fund raising, and campaigning. Most of America is not ready to 'Get Over it' ... Jean ... your reaction is disgusting.

    I AM WATCHING THE PRESIDENT'S UN SPEECH ON FOX NEWS RIGHT NOW AND SO FAR, I COULD NOT BE PROUDER. GOD BLESS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    • Jay in NC

      " I COULD NOT BE PROUDER", your standards are very low.

      September 25, 2012 at 12:10 pm |
      • DEcember 2012

        YOU ARE HARDLY IN ANY POSITION TO QUALIFY ANYONE'S STANDARDS SINCE YOU HAVE SHOWN NO TOLERANCE FOR ANYTHING OBAMA SAYS. IN SHORT YOU ARE A TRUE REPUBLITARD AND YOU GIVE REAL REPUBLICANS LIKE CARAMON A BAD NAME.

    I ALSO JUST WATCHED GOVERNOR ROMNEY CONVERSING WITH EDUCATION NATION ON MSNBC AND I ADMIRE THE LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE HE EXUDED IN THESE CONVERSATIONS. I JUST WISH HE WOULD DO THIS MORE IN HIS CAMPAIGN. THIS IS WHY HE IS QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

      Sorry I missed both the president's speech and Mitt Romney on MSNBC. Hopefully, there will be highlights tonight. Sounds like both went well.

      September 25, 2012 at 12:05 pm |
    • DEcember 2012

      CARAMON, YOU REALLY SHOULD. I FOUND IT REFRESHING TO SEE THESE CANDIDATES IN THESE SETTINGS, FAR FROM THE UGLY CAMPAIGN RHETORIC AND WHERE THEY CAN DO MORE GOOD ESPECIALLY ON THE MATTER OF EDUCATION. AT THE SAME TIME, WE CAN SEE WHERE THEY ARE DIFFERENT IN THEIR APPROACH AND PHILOSOPHY WITHOUT HAVING TO BASH EACH OTHER. THE ARE ALSO SPEECHES MADE IN THE CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE. OVERALL SO FAR, A GOOD DAY FOR BOTH CANDIDATES AND FOR THE VOTERS.

      September 25, 2012 at 2:00 pm |

        The I will be certain to listen tonight. Thanks December.

    and the fraud does what he can do...promote himself, this is his resume self promotion and nothing more. Read Bob Woodward's new book on obama, the price of politics and you will understand how this is true...it is sickening. God help America if this man is reelected. He has nothing but scorn for our elected legislators (of both parties)...the people we select to make our laws. He has repededly stood in the way of reforms and legislation that would bring this country out of this mess...he has scorned and abused business leaders who can and will bring us jobs. He is a cheap political hack who only cares about his own promotion..American means nothing to him. This is all obvious today, all you need to do is look around you domestically and overseas.

    Obama: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” - Sounds like another apology.

    Iran test fires more missles capable of hitting Europe.

    Home by 230 – in time to watch the rerun of The View & see himself talk. No wonder he and Michelle are closer – the guy doesnt work a full day. Maybe he might have thought about spending the extra 3 hours working on his relationship skills with the leaders of other countries attending the UNmeeting – he still could have been home by 5 pm – what a free loader

    you can spend all the money your superpacs will allow and tell all the stupid lies you want. Your candidates are lying snake oil salesmen and they are going down. Poll numbers for our president get better every day and your boys just keep dancing around with new lies. Now the twitt says president Obama will raise taxes three weeks ago his story was that the president raised taxes when he go into office. They have no clue what they are talking about. Slimey won't show his tax returns and invested in chinese companies. How low can you get yet you jerks keep backing him. Guy is an idiot and you backed a dead horse. Forward.
