NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News Channel’s morning show on Wednesday twice aired a nearly 4-minute video that contrasted President Barack Obama’s words with negative statistics about his administration in a format that looked similar to a campaign advertisement.

The Slippery Lips of Obama
By Aaron Goldstein
I appreciate what Quin is trying to say concerning President Obama's "Polish death camps" remark. But I simply do not agree with him when he argues that Obama made nothing more than "a harmless slip of the lip." The last time an American President made a slip of the lip concerning Poland we ended up with Jimmy Carter for four years.
If one were to take Quin's argument to its logical conclusion then Obama is off limits for saying he visited 57 states with one left to go and as well as for proclaiming he was "here in Asia" during the APEC Summit when he was, in fact, standing in his native Hawaii. Nor could Obama be called to account for calling the Falkland Islands the Maldives when he meant to call it the Malvinas. That slip of the lips is rather unsettling to the U.K. never mind to those who call the Falklands home.
Even if President Obama intended no malice, the fact is that he has caused an international incident with an ally that stood by our side in both Afghanistan and Iraq. And how does President Obama repay that loyalty? First, he jettisons missile defense to mollify the Russians while getting nothing in return. Now he refers to Nazi death camps as Polish death camps. Obama has only aggravated matters by having a flunky do the talking for him rather than personally accepting responsibility for his actions and making amends with Poland.
As Polish PM Donald Tusk so eloquently asked, "If these were "Polish death camps" then from whose hands did the uncle of the President of the United States liberate the Buchenwald concentration camp?" Then again perhaps we are asking too much of Obama. After all, he publicly stated that his uncle had liberated Auschwitz making him a veteran of the Soviet Red Army. But to excuse Obama's ignorance here is to ignore a litany of foreign policy errors and diplomatic impropriety which deserve our full scrutiny.
(CNSNews.com) – The White House does not yet know whether President Barack Obama is for or against banning sex-selection abortions.
Asked on Wednesday about where the president stands on a bill proposed in the House that would ban abortions based on the gender of the unborn child, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said he would have to check.

Former Dem Rep. Artur Davis: Why I’m becoming a Republican
Any chance that the Democrats would try to run to the political center during the 2012 elections went out the window when Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida was named recently to head the Democratic National Committee (DNC). With a rating of 100% by Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) and a 0% rating from the American Conservative Union (ACU), Wasserman Schultz is a hard-core leftie.

Planned Parenthood Fires Employee for Coaching a Sex-Selection Abortion
Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion mill, fired an employee who encouraged and coached a woman to get a sex-selection abortion that targeted a baby girl. In an investigative video released by Live Action, the Planned Parenthood employee smiles and laughs while counseling the woman on how to identify if her baby is a girl and how to conceal her intention of keeping the baby only if it's a boy and aborting if it's a girl. The Planned Parenthood employee says that the baby's sex can usually be detected at five months, and encourages the woman to wait, obtain a Medicaid-funded ultrasound, and then have a late-term abortion if the baby is a girl. But Planned Parenthood admitted to the abortion-friendly Huffington Post that they will not "deny a woman an abortion based on her reasons for wanting one, except in those states that explicitly prohibit sex-selective abortions (Arizona, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Illinois)." The House is considering a bill to ban sex-selective abortions.*******
New York Plans to Ban Sale of Big Sizes of Sugary Drinks
New York City plans to enact a far-reaching ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters and street carts, in the most ambitious effort yet by the Bloomberg administration to combat rising obesity.CULTURE OF CORRUPTION: Charlie Rangel Picks Up Bloomberg Endorsement.
The proposed ban would affect virtually the entire menu of popular sugary drinks found in delis, fast-food franchises and even sports arenas, from energy drinks to pre-sweetened iced teas. The sale of any cup or bottle of sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces — about the size of a medium coffee, and smaller than a common soda bottle — would be prohibited under the first-in-the-nation plan, which could take effect as soon as next March.The measure would not apply to diet sodas, fruit juices, dairy-based drinks like milkshakes, or alcoholic beverages; it would not extend to beverages sold in grocery or convenience stores.“Obesity is a nationwide problem, and all over the United States, public health officials are wringing their hands saying, ‘Oh, this is terrible,’ ” Mr. Bloomberg said in an interview on Wednesday in the Governor’s Room at City Hall.
