Do you remember the Clarence Thomas hearings or should we say the Anita Hill hearings? She said that she was sexually harrassed by the then Supreme court nominee Clarence Thomas, but he went on to be confirmed. He claimed to be the victim of a high tech lynching. Her documentary will be in theaters this Friday. What do you remember about the hearing? Share your thoughts.

Has Dr. Ben Carson lost his credibility?

Dr. Ben Carson became a star in the Republican party last year at the National Prayer breakfast. He took the opportunity to criticize Obamacare and since that time he has become a vocal and paid critic of this administration, but Carson is a brilliant surgeon and some are asking will his political stance diminish his medical career? I think they are two different parts of the man and his medical contribution should not be diminished. The author of the linked story takes a different stance.

President’s Funny or Die Routine was a mistake

I’ve listened to the anchors compliment the president on his comedic timing all day, but he is not paid to be comedian. He is the President of the United States. Arguably the most powerful man in the world. So why is he sitting down doing a mock interview with one of the guys from the Hangover trilogy? Sure he is trying to reach the young and he is using non traditional media but is this how we want to see POTUS? We get he is the cool president full of swagger, but some things are frankly unpresidential and to me this was one of them. The CBS News called it a success and said the video has gotten 3 million hits, but how many of the ones that have laughed at the skit have gone on the website and signed up for Obamacare? Laughs are great, but in this case I have to ask was it worth it? What’s next? Will he be interviewed by Kermit the Frog to reach young moms? This afternoon Twitter said the right was going crazy over the clip, but I don’t think this is a right/left thing…this is simply was a bad idea and somebody in his inner circle should have seen it before we did.

Sarah Palin says our President is known for “Mom Jeans” …is our president viewed as weak on the world’s stage?

It would be easy to dismiss the verbal drivel spouted by Sarah Palin, but a broken clock is right at least twice a day. She basically calls the president weak in this clip. She is no fan of the president but how do you think the president is perceived on the world’s stage?

Am I my Brother’s Keeper…Yes, I am

President Obama–”I didn’t have a dad in the house, and I was angry about it, even though I didn’t necessarily realize it at the time. I made bad choices. I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didn’t always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short,” the President said. He compared himself to young men now who are growing up like he did.”The only difference is that I grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. So when I made a mistake, the consequences were not as severe,” the President said. “I had people who encouraged me, not just my mom and grandparents, but wonderful teachers and community leaders. And they pushed me to work hard, and study hard, and make the most of myself. And if I didn’t listen, they said it again. And if I didn’t listen, they said it a third time – and they would give me second chances and third chances. “They never gave up on me, and so I didn’t give up on myself.”
Yesterday President Obama was amazingly candid as he discussed his childhood. He shared this as he introduced the President’s Initiative, My Brother’s Keeper. Yesterday was inspiring, but what will actually change the dynamic? It was interesting that the president took the opportunity to also scold the young men as he said they now have “no more excuses”. To some degree he is correct, but he needs to also take that same critical mirror and look at himself. He has also had a pocketful of excuses to explain his own lack of progress on his own agenda. The president has rewarded his LGBT community for their support and it has never came wrapped up with a lecture. It would have been refreshing to have seen this Initiative released with no chaser. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/02/27/obama-announces-my-brothers-keeper/
