@bobsal u1553115,
He said he had time for one more question. The guy asked his question and received an answer. He tried to ask another question but Paul walked away. That isn't walking out, that was ending an interview when the "last question" was asked.

I agree, Baldimo...all that...

...and the fact that the guy has no class and almost no control over his temper.

Right.

On the other hand, care to 'splain this in that light?

Fox News' Chris Wallace not happy about White House snub (Video)

Chris Wallace of Fox News was not happy about an inability to secure an interview with Secretary Clinton or Gates.

Today Chris Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday, expressed disgust at an apparent snub of his network from the Obama administration. Wallace was upset that the Obama administration refused to send Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or Defense Secretary Robert Gates for an interview on his show. Mrs. Clinton appeared on ABC's This Week with Christiane Amanpour. Mr. Gates appeared on CBS' Face the Nation. Both Gates and Clinton appeared on NBC's Meet the Press. Wallace did not say if the Obama administration was willing to send any other Cabinet member or spokesperson, but either way he was clearly upset saying,

"Of course we wanted to get the White House view on Libya. However, they chose to offer Secretary of State Clinton and Defense Secretary Gates to ABC, CBS and NBC, but not to Fox. Despite the fact that we routinely have more viewers than two of those Sunday shows, the Obama team felt no need to explain to the millions of you who watch this program and Fox News why they have sent U.S. servicemen and women into combat. We thought you'd like to know."

In his statement, Wallace eqautes a snub of his show to a snub of millions of his viewers, an equation that the White House would surely refute. The Obama adminstration and Fox News have had a testy relationship before Obama even became President. The White House believes that Fox News actively pushed a narrative to paint the President as a socialist. When Glenn Beck called President Obama a "racist" with a "deep-seeded hatred for white people" it reportedly made some members of the White House extremely upset. Over the past week Fox News has frequently hosted GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich to criticize the President's decision to intervene in Libya. Two weeks ago Gingrich criticized Obama for not intervening, but this week has criticized the President for intervening.

At various times the Obama administration has "fought back" by withholding interviews from Fox News. Still, President Obama has interviewed with Bret Baier of Fox News and granted an interview to Bill O'Reilly which aired before the Super Bowl. The White House has not responded to Wallace's statement at this time.

@bobsal u1553115,
This can't be explained in that light. Ending an interview and not granting an interview are 2 different things.

The Rude Pundit - Three Follow-Up Questions Designed to Piss Off Rand Paul

As we've learned, it's very easy to make Sen. Rand Paul get as pissy as an aggravated 8th grade girl when he's questioned even slightly. So here's some quick follow-ups sure to push him over the edge. They can come after anything from queries about Iran to "Were you really named after Ayn Rand?"

1. "Really?"

2. "Dude, really?"

3. "Are you shittin' me?"

Republicans Promise Smooth Transition of Hate from Obama to Clinton

WASHINGTON - Republicans today promised that there will be a "seamless transition of hatred" if President Obama is succeeded in office by Hillary Clinton. "Like many Americans, we will be saddened to see our lawsuits, investigations, and general harassment directed towards President Obama come to an end," said House Speaker John Boehner. "But we want to reassure everyone that we are very much up to the challenge of transferring our hatred to a President Clinton." Boehner promised the American people that the tormenting of the new Democratic President would begin on her first day in office. "The fact that we began this process while she was still Secretary of State will really enable us to hit the ground running," he said.


And this!

Hillary is an ambitious, narcissistic, power-mad woman - and only the woman part distinguishes her from every other President we've had.

Even as the standard of Republican looniness keeps rising, Michele Bachman manages to stand out.

Quote:
Michele Bachmann: The Rapture Is Coming And It's Obama's Fault The Huffington Post Marina Fang 4 hrs ago

Michele Bachmann says the rapture is coming, thanks to President Barack Obama’s policies on Iran’s nuclear program and marriage equality.

In a radio interview last week, Bachmann, the former Minnesota Republican congresswoman, told "End Times" host Jan Markell, “We need to realize how close this clock is getting to the midnight hour.”

“We in our lifetimes potentially could see Jesus Christ returning to earth and the rapture of the church,” Bachmann said. “We see the destruction, but this was a destruction that was foretold.”

Bachmann cited the Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations with Iran as a cause. The U.S. and five partner nations are discussing a deal with Iran that would prevent the country from developing or obtaining nuclear weapons.
“We are literally watching, month by month, the speed move up to a level we’ve never seen before with these events," Bachmann said. "Barack Obama is intent. It is his number one goal to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon.”
Later in the interview, Bachmann again tied her rapture prediction to Obama’s foreign policy.

“If you look at the president’s rhetoric, and if you look at his actions, everything he has done has been to cut the legs out of Israel and lift up the agenda of radical Islam,” she said.

Obama has said repeatedly that the goal of the nuclear talks with Iran is to prevent the country from developing a nuclear weapon.

Bachmann also blamed abortion and gay marriage, arguing that God is punishing the United States for “embracing a pagan view.”

“Any nation that accepts God and his principles is blessed, and those who push away are cursed. That’s what we’re seeing happen to the United States,” she said. “We will suffer the consequences as a result.”

Some Christians believe those who are saved will be transported to heaven just before armageddon, which they call the rapture.

This is not the first time Bachmann has predicted extreme consequences from the Iran deal. Earlier this month, she claimed the deal would lead to "World War III." And in a Facebook post, she compared Obama to Andreas Lubitz, the pilot who crashed the Germanwings airliner into the French Alps in March


Sure took Minnesotans long enough to realize she had zero contact with reality

@MontereyJack,
These assholes have been hopeful of the rapture right along.

Now they say it is coming...and Obama is to blame.

Shouldn't they be saying Obama deserves the credit????

If you think Bachmann was giving "credit" to Obama...rather than using what she was saying as a condemnation of Obama and his foreign policy...

...you may have answer the question I have about why you would want to be a Republican.

I've always considered you too intelligent to be a Republican.

If He does come and I was one of these assholes I would be sweating blood because as I have read it he is going to judge everyone and kick the sinners straight to hell. That should include most of the teabaggers and all of congress.

Rand Paul skips hearing on State Department funding, blasts HRC on Benghazi in interview instead

Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday skipped out on a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing,
instead appearing on a radio program blasting Hillary Clinton's handling of the Benghazi terror attacks.

The topic of the hearing?

Funding for the State Department, including requests for funds "that will allow us to improve the safety and security of U.S. citizens, government employees and facilities overseas," according to Heather Higginbottom, deputy secretary of state for management and resources, who testified on Wednesday.

What a joke.

McCain: Rand Paul 'Worst Possible Candidate' On National Security
Source: TPM

By CAITLIN MACNEAL Published APRIL 23, 2015, 8:07 AM EDT

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday took a jab at Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and his presidential run, declaring Paul to be the worst Republican on security issues.

"Sen. Paul is the worst possible candidate of the 20 or so that are running on the most important issue, which is national security," McCain told Fox News' Neil Cavuto. "The record is very clear that he simply does not have an understanding about the needs and the threats of United States national security."

McCain was responding to Paul's Tuesday comment that McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) were Obama's "lapdogs."

And even though McCain relentlessly mocked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) earlier this week, he said he'd prefer Cruz over Paul. "Ted Cruz has a much better handle on our national security issues," McCain said.

Ted Cruz, creepy misogynist: The “hymen” joke that perfectly reflects his odious worldview
A college-era Cruz tried to get the room laughing with a joke about punishing women for sex. LOL LOL LOL

KATIE MCDONOUGH

Ted Cruz wants to be the president of… comedy!

A New York Times piece about the Republican presidential contender’s time on the Princeton University debate team is making the rounds this morning, with a lot of attention being paid to this passage:

Mr. Cruz’s own attempts at humor sometimes missed the mark. In one debate, he proposed a method to detect infidelity, in which God should “give women a hymen that grows back every time she has intercourse with a different guy, because that will be a ‘visible sign’ of the breach of trust,” according to a recollection by David Kennedy published in a Harvard debate team reunion booklet in 2001.



What an excellent joke. It is hilarious and good to think that maybe the best way to ensure that women comply with one’s religious views on sex is to punish them with pain and bleeding. And it’s not like that kind of thinking has anything to do with Cruz’s current views on reproductive freedom or anything like that. Like it would be very out of line to see Cruz’s joke about punishing women for sex as related to his current attempt to upend a reproductive health law in Washington, D.C. that prevents employers from — wait for it — punishing women for having sex.

FLORIDA GOVERNOR MORE EVIDENCE OF GOP BRAINLESSNESS

These Republican fruitcakes just keep popping up. Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) has decided to sue Obamacare for a deleted program the Affordable Care Act made unnecessary. He wants the money the ACA can provide for Florida's low income population but refuses to accept it in the name of Obamacare. The former policy, “Low Income Pools” (LIP), designed by Bush/Cheney to help hospitals actually funneled some money to Florida and now Radical Rick wants more of it, but only in the name of LIP. Kansas GOP Gov. Sam Brownback recently cut educational budgets in that state literally putting the future learning of that state's kids in dire jeopardy. Now Florida's Scott wants to do the same thing to his state's low income constituents needing healthcare. Pathetic!
