Republicans will not be able to go after new HHS Secretary (former trash sorter) Sylvia Mathews Burwell politically, on substance, because she is young, female and attractive.

Really?

The plot keeps thickening on Rhodes Scholar, level trash inspector Sylvia Burwell:

"The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget. But OMB also has another, lesser-known responsibility: fact-checking presidential speeches. Every proposed presidential utterance is scrubbed for accuracy by OMB."

Let HHS nominee Sylvia Burwell explain Obamacare lie:

“if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.”

Burwell was OMB director when Obama declared on Sept. 26, 2013: “Now, let’s start with the fact that even before the Affordable Care Act fully takes effect, about 85 percent of Americans already have health insurance — either through their job, or through Medicare, or through the individual market. So if you’re one of these folks, it’s reasonable that you might worry whether health-care reform is going to create changes that are a problem for you — especially when you’re bombarded with all sorts of fear-mongering. So the first thing you need to know is this: If you already have health care, you don’t have to do anything.”

"Burwell should explain to Congress and the American people how her office allowed blatant falsehoods to get into presidential speeches, including whether political aides overruled career policy advisers who warned that the president’s claims were untrue." - Marc Thiessen, Washington Post

The photo did remind me of those quizzes where you guess which of these beautiful women used to be men.

With Sec. Kerry, is he Lurch, or is he Mr. Ed - the talking horse.    wink

I did not know that about OMB and fact checking.

===================

Baraq's Jay Carney would seem to be immune from OMB fact checking , , , speaking of which , , , http://www.bizpacreview.com/2014/04/12/magazine-reveals-jay-carneys-kitchen-decorated-with-soviet-era-propaganda-posters-112076

In the first sentence of this clip, the Pres. swerved into a point I have long been trying to make, that their economic record goes back to:

"ever since we've been in public office"

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2014/04/16/obama_we_sometimes_sound_like_a_broken_record_on_the_economy.html

And the country's policy direction has been ever since they've been in power. This goes back "6, 7, 8 years...", as he alludes.
  
The Obama / Leftist / Democratic / Government-centric economic record goes back to the day that Democrats took control of congress, Nov 2006 / Jan 2007, back when unemployment was 4.6% and workforce participation was millions ahead of where we are now.  These policies have brought on epic failure, besides crash, putting our economy on what looks like a permanently slower growth path with fewer and fewer people participating.  He didn't inherit the crash only from Bush; he inherited the collapse from himself, a congress led by Pelosi-Reid-Obama-Biden and Hillary.  That is when the political control arrow switched directions in Washington, not at his inauguration in 2009.

His policy answer now:  More of the same!

Giving credit where credit is due.  That with the OBL kill makes at least twice that he has done the right thing.  It shows that down deep they know there are such things as bad guys/terrorists/militants plotting and planning to kill us.  And we all know that the leftists including a Senator or citizen Obama would be 'up in arms' if these drone killings were carried out by a Republican administration.

From Yemen thread:
Yemen Confirms 55 Militants Killed in Joint Aerial Campaign
________________________________________
Yemen's interior ministry confirmed that 55 al Qaeda linked militants were killed in what a Yemeni official called an "unprecedented" joint aerial campaign between Yemen and the United States in the mountainous Abyan, Shabwa, and Bayda provinces from Saturday to Monday. Air strikes, possibly from U.S. drones, reportedly targeted a training camp as well as several vehicles in the region. Another Yemeni official estimated the number of dead in the 40s. According to the interior ministry, three senior members of al Qaeda were among the fatalities as well as three civilians. Additionally, reports suggest Ibrahim al-Asiri, al Qaeda's chief bomb maker, may have been killed in an ambush over the weekend by U.S. backed special forces. Since the weekend's strikes, gunmen have killed four senior security officers, according to Yemeni officials.

Washington Post: The president’s cynical Keystone XL strategy  BY ED ROGERS  April 22

On Friday, the State Department quietly released a notification that the Keystone XL pipeline decision is being delayed yet again.  The president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, Terry O’Sullivan, called the delay “another gutless move” by the administration.  We could also dismiss the announcement as just more of the usual dithering from this White House.  I don’t think the delay is gutless or dithering, but a more sinister, cynical ploy by this administration to manipulate two groups into continuing to support vulnerable Democrats in an attempt to keep the Senate in 2014.
By appearing to have not made a decision, President Obama keeps the money pouring in from those on the fringe left — like billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer – who want the Democrats to swear allegiance to their global warming agenda.  And at the same time, the delay — not outright denial — deceptively makes voters in key states like Louisiana believe there is still some hope that the pipeline will come to life.  In Louisiana, voters think that if they reelect Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), who touts her ability to influence the president on such things, the pipeline will become a reality.
One side or the other is being played for a fool.  But given what we know about the weakness of the president’s second-term agenda, and the fact that he could have approved the pipeline already if he wanted to, one would have to bet Keystone XL has no chance of being approved after the 2014 elections.  There is nothing new about government officials manipulating announcements of planned projects and the like to suit their political objectives.  But Obama’s manipulation has reached a peak. Neither side that he is playing will win. (more at link)
