He was clearly not comfortable with the question because it points out the utter hypocrisy of Barack Obama and the Democrats. Jake Tapper today pointed out to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney that Barack Obama as a Senator voted against raising the debt ceiling. Now, he wants unilateral authority to raise it as President without any input from Congress. Obama is actually trying to make that condition part of the “Fiscal Cliff” negotiations.
ABC News is reporting that President Obama is planning a major shakeup of his Cabinet as he prepares to begin his 2nd Term as President. He will have to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner. Jake Tapper reports that Susan Rice has the inside track for State, even though liberal commentator Kirsten Powers said yesterday such a move would show Obama’s “arrogance,” and could prove to be his “undoing.”
@mmurraypolitics So your poll has the president doing better in Ohio this year than he did in 2008. *coughs*— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) November 3, 2012
Interesting tweet from ABC News’ Jake Tapper to NBC’s Mark Murray on their new poll using a Democrat +9 sample to show Barack Obama with a six-point lead in Ohio.
Here is a video report by ABC News’ Jake Tapper on Mitt Romney and Barack Obama’s preparations for tonight’s Town-Hall Style Presidential Debate. Tapper also mentions Romney is surging in the key Battleground States, leading Obama 51%-46%, according to a new poll by USA Today/Gallup in those states.
Here is video of ABC News’ Jake Tapper telling Greta Van Susteren that there “really isn’t an explanation that’s been forthcoming” from Barack Obama and his White House as to why he refused to meet with any World Leaders at the United Nations this week – including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Tapper said Obama had 12 meetings last year when he went to the U.N.
Here is video of ABC News’ Jake Tapper yesterday asking Obama’s White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, “Where is the President’s plan” on how to save Medicare?
There isn’t one.
Here is video of ABC News’ Jake Tapper asking White House Press Secretary Jay Carney what the 2004 “Let’s bring the country together” Barack Obama would think about his current negative Presidential Campaign.
Of course, Carney really gave no answer. What can he say? He can’t run on his record so he has to try and demonize Mitt Romney.
