Obama's Weekly Faux Pas
Drudge is a No No?
"...The U.S. attorney’s office in Massachusetts directed employees earlier this month not to log onto the Drudge Report website with government-issued computers due to potential viruses on the site.
Tracy Schmaler, a Justice Department spokeswoman, said it was because “a malicious code was found contained in a Web ad on Drudge.”
Schmaler also said the request to stay off Drudge wasn’t politically motivated.." (source)
Women akin to dogs for Obama?
"...When Axelrod was asked if he had weighed in on the Obama family’s dog choice, "the Rasputin in this kingdom" (as Sagal jokingly referred to him) sassed back, “I was only called in for the final three, and one was Miss California.” (source)
Obama says the debt from HIS stimulus is "Unsustainable"
"President Barack Obama, calling current deficit spending “unsustainable,” warned of skyrocketing interest rates for consumers if the U.S. continues to finance government by borrowing from other countries." (source)
Is being compare to a non-human a good thing?
"...President Barack Obama said in a report Sunday that he saw the new "Star Trek" film recently -- and not just because it was last week's top-grossing movie.
"Everybody was saying I was Spock," said the US leader, known to have a wonkish command of the minutiae of policy -- not unlike the dispassionate movie Vulcan to whom he has been compared.
Newsweek gushed however that Obama's version of the character would be "Spock with global sex appeal." (source)
