WHEN RAND PAUL QUESTIONED HILLARY CLINTON He asked about transferring weapons to Turkey. According to CNN yesterday, he was right with line of questioning. CIA agents were all over the ground in Benghazi and they are trying to cover it up. I went back and found the specific clip of Hillary Clinton, and to her credit, she punts the answer to "the agency that ran the annex", which we now know is the CIA. Watch the clip here:
The lefties mocked him for asking about Turkey. Idiots.
AND THEN THERE IS THE SHUTDOWN OF EMBASSIES THIS WEEKEND What the heck is going on when multiple embassies are shut down over the weekend in Islamic countries? Good thing the War on Terror is over, or I'd be worried. Thankfully, the POTUS strategy of butt kissing seems to be working. That is sarcasm.

INTERESTING TAKE ON RAND PAUL V. CHRIS CHRISTIE The back and forth between Rand Paul and Chris Christie seems to be over (for now) and this column makes some interesting points about what this tete a tete means for both as they aspire to be POTUS.

THANK GOODNESS THEY WON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH A PREMIUM INCREASE Congressional staffers won't see huge hikes in health insurance premiums next year because President Obama is making sure they will still have subsidies of up to 75% for their plans. Thank GOODNESS, I'd hate to lose the kind of talent that's helped create 16 trillion dollar debts.
THE NEW NORMAL SUCKS IF these jobs numbers are the new normal, it sucks. It will be nice when we get leadership who can unshackle our economy again. Too bad no suck leadership is anywhere in sight.
