President Obama’s Weekly Address 8/27/11: Coming Together to Remember

WASHINGTON— In this week’s address, President Obama called on the American people to come together in the spirit of service and remembrance as we approach the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. All Americans can pay tribute to those who lost their lives during 9/11 by visiting Serve.Gov to find ways to help within their own communities. Through even the smallest of actions, we can reclaim the sense of unity that followed the attacks, and demonstrate that our sense of common purpose is just as strong today as it was ten years ago. Americans can once again come together to mark this solemn anniversary with service, and move towards a bright future as one nation.

Jon Stewart: Dick (Uncut)

Sometimes we just need Jon Stewart to put things into perspective.

Dick Cheney doesn’t recall Richard Clarke warning the White House of an imminent terrorist attack months before 9/11, but he hasn’t read his book.

Palin: ‘I Don’t Know’ If Abortion Clinic Bombers Are Terrorists

The buffoonish nature of Sarah Palin’s vice presidential candidacy has mostly been a disaster for the McCain-Palin campaign, but it is has delivered at least one benefit: her foibles have helped obscure the true nature of her right-wing extremism.

But now, Sarah Palin’s self-destructive behavior is threatening to expose even that. In an interview broadcast yesterday on NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams asked Palin whether she felt abortion clinic bombers were terrorists. Amazingly, she said that she didn’t know :

“I don’t know if you’re going to use the word ‘terrorist’ there,”

What makes it so incredible is that Sarah Palin was responding to one of the easiest questions that has been posed during this entire campaign. Her answer should have been simple: of course they are terrorists.

Instead, Palin balked, saying that while bombings were unacceptable, she didn’t know if they were acts of terrorism.
