      The Wrap: Jay Carney Takes a Swipe at the Press

      Jul. 3, 2014 – Madeleine Morgenstern

      Former White House press secretary Jay Carney in a new interview criticized reporters for being “shallow” in their coverage of the Obama administration.

      Carney told the New York Times Magazine that the White House press corps mindset of “chasing the same soccer ball down the field” results in a “shallow approach.”

      After a tenure marked by sometimes combative interactions with members of the press, Carney also hit out at “theatrical” reporters whom he said play to the TV cameras.

    The Truth About Chicago’s Crime Rates
    The city’s drop in crime has been nothing short of miraculous. Here’s what’s behind the unbelievable numbers.

    BY David Bernstein and Noah Isackson – July 7 2014

    (Through a spokeswoman, the mayor declined to comment for this article.)

    Emanuel told reporters on April 1. He declared that the number of murders in the first quarter of 2013 was lower than in any other first quarter in the past 50 years.

    The current chief medical examiner, Stephen Cina, was appointed by Cook County board president Toni Preckwinkle in July 2012.

    That was shortly after previous examiner Nancy Jones retired following an avalanche of negative publicity about bodies stacking up at the city morgue.

    Cina says he has made numerous changes to the office to bring it more in line with national standards. “We’ve rewritten every standard operating procedure in the place,” he says.

    He also says that he has “tweaked” how his office assigns the cause and manner of a death.

    resident Obama was involved in a mystifying incident when he shook hands with a man in a horse mask while meeting members of the public yesterday.
    Obama was pictured smiling and shaking hands with the prankster as he went on an unscheduled walkabout in Denver, Colorado.
    The mask became a popular internet meme a few years ago, when people started wearing the odd headgear in unusual settings and posting the pictures online.

    The reasons for his sartorial choice remained unclear. Obama’s Secret Service agents seemed to keep a close eye on him as he shook hands with the man.
    Obama also apparently laughed off an offer of marijuana during the visit.
    A video uploaded to Instagram by user manton89 shows Obama smiling as a man appears to say ‘You want a hit, man?’
    In an apparently reply, Obama just tilts his head back and laughs.

    Recreational marijuana became legally available for purchase in Colorado in January.

    Tuesday night’s escapades were part of Obama’s continuing quest to break free from the constraints of the White House – and they brought him to a crowded pizza restaurant and a pool bar.

    But after his meal, Obama decided to break from the script : he took off by foot down 15th Street, a cadre of anxious Secret Service agents by his side, and started shaking hands with the dozens of people who had gathered on the sidewalks.

    That’s some tasty beer!’ President Barack Obama has a beer at Wynkoop Brewing Co. with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on Tuesday

    Obama increasingly has been showing his frustration with the restrictive White House security bubble and referring to himself as a ‘bear on the loose.’

    After his 10-minute stroll, Obama hopped back into his armored limousine for a short drive to his next destination, Wynkoop Brewing Co., which was founded by Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.

    Inside the pub, Obama was also photographed posing for pictures with a giant gorilla statue.

    As Vanilla Ice’s classic song ‘Ice Ice Baby’ played in the background, Obama sank the eight-ball to claim victory over Hickenlooper. And on at least this occasion, Obama wanted to make sure the media were nearby.

    He turned to the traveling press corps and said, ‘Did you record that?’

    To imagine he then went on to tell Austin TX he is the only one in Washington who works and would like to be elected for another term.

    So, much for my mother telling me how the President in the US had to be best and smartest in the US.
    To have a good record and growing up without getting in trouble and excell and work harder than anyone else.
    And that he was the most important person in the world.

    And we got a president who is acting like a dam monkey at a circus.

      CNN reports Obama was offered weed more than once but never said no. Pic of him bumping fists andtalking to the other fake gorrila.


      It’s very important to express disappointment and even outrage, such as Boehner’s recent raising of voice, because Obama’s ODD disorder he grew up will mean he keep up his antics and entertain the world, since he is worthless in Washington.

    Texas Democrat Blasts Obama’s Bizarre Behavior to MSNBC

    NY Daily News:‘ BIZARRE,’ ‘ALOOF’ and ‘DETACHED:’ Prominent Texas Dem blasts Obama for not visiting border

    Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) had harsh words for the President, who has refused to visit the U.S.-Mexico border during his current visit to Texas, after videos emerged of him drinking and shooting pool during his visit to Denver the night before.

    By Adam Edelman- July 9, 2014

    “He’ll be 500 miles from Dallas and, in fact, he’ll be 242 miles from Austin, Texas, at the other fundraising he’ll be having,” Cuellar told MSNBC.

    ” I hate to use the word ‘bizarre,’ but under the circumstances – when he is shown playing pool in Colorado, drinking a beer, and he can’t even go 242 miles to the Texas border?”

    “He either can roll up his sleeves and go down to the border, or he can just look aloof and detached and not go to the border,” he said.

    If he had time, with all due respect, to have a beer and play pool like he did in Colorado last night, then I think after the fundraisers he should make time to go down there,” Cuellar added during a later interview with CNN.

    Obama has been blasted by members of both political parties for his refusal to visit the border during his visit to Texas, where he will attend several Democratic fundraisers.
