Fox News host Greta Van Susteren had some strong words for the Obama administration for failing to provide the press with adequate information following the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack. 

Speaking on her On the Record program on Friday, September 5, Van Susteren claimed that “the Obama administration’s behavior post-Benghazi has been weird, like they are hiding something.”

Just like the Huffington Post underlined Rick Perry’s “big loss” on a Tesla plant, Saturday’s Washington Post highlighted “Christie loses Atlantic City bet” on an Atlantic City casino. The subheadline was "The casino hailed as a 'game-changer' by New Jersey's governor two years ago is shuttered, creating more problems for his possible 2016 presidential run."

But the front page of last Thursday’s Metro section carried this headline about potential Democratic presidential contender Martin O’Malley in Maryland: “The glitter-is-gold side of O’Malley’s legacy.” That came under a color photo of O’Malley taking a selfie at a casino opening in Baltimore.

Now online: the September 8 edition of Notable Quotables, MRC’s bi-weekly compilation of the latest outrageous quotes in the liberal media. This week, NBC tries to cover for Obama's chaotic statements on ISIS, with NBC's Chuck Todd straining to explain the President's "no strategy, yet" blunder even as Nightly News anchor Brian Williams absurdly claims Obama was “clear and unambiguous” when he said he wanted to "destroy" ISIS, then moments later said his goal was to make them a “manageable problem.”

The smug self-confidence of financial analysts and writers who predicted that Japan's monstrous sales tax increase would have no long-term effect on its economy should be severely shaken.

An Associated Press report tonight by business writer Elaine Kurtenbach tells readers that the Land of the Rising Sun's economy "contracted at a larger than earlier estimated annual rate of 7.1 percent in April-June, as companies and households slashed spending following a tax hike." This means that the "experts" who assured everyone that the second-quarter contraction would be smaller than or merely offset the brisk first-quarter expansion of 6 percent were horribly wrong.

"This [Redskins name] controversy is not going away," insisted NBCSports.com writer Michael David Smith in a story filed this afternoon. His proof: a handful of protesters in Houston complaining about the visiting Washington NFL team's mascot and logo.

The Latino activist/anchorman Jorge Ramos (with the Univison and Fusion networks) displayed his outrage at Barack Obama again after the White House confirmed they wouldn’t be taking any executive actions toward amnesty for illegal aliens before the midterm elections.

On Twitter, Ramos denounced Obama because “innocent people” will be deported. Illegal aliens are always innocent among the media elites.

To conservatives it borders on stating the obvious – South Vietnam collapsed in the spring of 1975 to invading North Vietnamese because American military forces were no longer in South Vietnam. To liberals, the reason for South Vietnam's collapse to the communists is not so apparent – because for nearly a decade, liberals had claimed that the main problem in South Vietnam was the presence of US troops. How could their nearly complete departure by 1973, except for a small contingent to protect the American embassy in Saigon, mean anything other than clear skies ahead?

During an appearance on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Donna Brazile, former campaign manager for Al Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign, admitted to not knowing what a caliphate was while trying to defend President Obama’s policy regarding the terrorist group ISIS. 

 

Brazile argued that the battle with ISIS is “a medieval war that we're looking at to establish a caliphate” before conceding that she had to ask conservative commentator Bill Kristol “exactly what that [caliphate] meant.”

It seems as though MSNBC is still trying to find a weekend use for Karen Finney after canceling her show. Finney, former DNC communications director and board member of NARAL, appeared on Up w/ Steve Kornacki on Saturday, September 7, to comment on news that Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis had an abortion 18 years ago. 

 

The former MSNBC host insisted that Davis’ abortion story could be a political weapon for the candidate who is struggling to keep up with her Republican opponent. Finney proclaimed that “from a political standpoint, it is something that I think will resonate with moderate women.”

In his inaugural episode as moderator of Meet The Press, Chuck Todd hits President Obama with a question from the left on the president's decision to postpone the granting of amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants until after the November, 2014 congressional elections: "what do you tell the person that's going to get deported before the election that this decision was essentially made in your hopes of saving a Democratic Senate."

Jeb Bush still may run for president, but he shouldn't bother -- he wouldn't even get nominated. He'd "probably have to campaign in a tricorner hat and get a picture of Sarah Palin tattooed on his neck to convince Tea Partiers they can trust him."

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney had some strikingly harsh words for President Obama over his lack of a coherent strategy to combat the terrorist group ISIS.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday on September 9, Romney slammed President Obama by insisting that he was “too busy on the golf course to pick up the phone and meet with the leaders around the world and to say what happens if.”

Following President Obama’s decision to delay any executive action on immigration reform, ABC’s Good Morning America did its best to hit the president from the left for failing to offer legal status to potentially millions of illegal immigrants currently living in this country. 

On Sunday, September 7, co-host Dan Harris played up how “there is anger this morning in the Hispanic community over a decision made by President Obama. He had promised to take action soon on immigration reform, protecting families from the threat of deportation. But now he's saying he’s going to wait until after the elections in November.”

Jason Howerton at The Blaze passed along this nugget from the CBS New York website: sports radio host Craig Carton, whose show with Boomer Esiason airs on the CBS Sports Network on cable, laid into the NFL following Peter King’s report that the NFL lobbied teams to pick up openly gay defensive tackle Michael Sam after he was released by the St. Louis Rams. They couldn't stand the "nightmare scenario" of Sam not making a team.

Carton called out the league over the plea that Sam and others pushed that he should be given a chance on the football merits, not some sort of gay affirmative action program:

Soon-to-be CNN host Mike Rowe – the former star of “Dirty Jobs” on the Discovery Channel – took to his Facebook page to express amusement that a 2006 photo promoting “Shark Week” was used by an NPR station in Kansas City to bash “Shark Week” as....jumping the shark.

Rowe wrote that the photo reminded him of being extremely scared (“pint of urine” scared) because it was taken “approximately five seconds before the shark behind me attempted to bite my mask off.”
