"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!
Benghazi Investigation Deepens: Lawmakers Seek Interviews of 13 Officials Involved | The Weekly Standard
depositions will focus on questions about security at the consulate before the attack, the lack of any military response during the 8 hours of violence, and the crafting and carrying forth of the white house narrative in the days, weeks and months sinceAs the investigation into the Obama administration’s handling of the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi intensifies, lawmakers on Capitol Hill are seeking to conduct transcribed interviews with thirteen top State Department officials in the coming weeks in order to learn more. Those named in the letter include a wide range of current and former State Department personnel, from senior advisers to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to mid-level career officials with responsibility for diplomatic security.
Among those officials: Jacob Sullivan, then deputy chief of staff and director of policy planning (and currently national security adviser to Vice President Joe Biden); Victoria Nuland, then State Department spokesman; Raymond Maxwell, deputy assistant secretary of state for near east affairs; Patrick Kennedy, undersecretary of state for management; and Eric Boswell, former assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security.
sullivan was deeply involved, emails show, in the editing of the talking points, nuland will be pressed about the political animus she so eagerly acted on
what exactly was hrc's role in the writing of the talking points, just who is ms nuland referring to when she complains on behalf of her "building leadership?"
patrick kennedy issued the stand down order to fest
who failed to convene the gsc?
why were maxwell and hicks denied access to the arb, why was hrc never questioned, why was mark thompson excluded?

The blackout's primary cause was a software bug in the alarm system at a control room of the FirstEnergy Corporation in Ohio. Operators were unaware of the need to re-distribute power after overloaded transmission lines hit unpruned foliage. What would have been a manageable local blackout cascaded into widespread distress on the electric grid.
Hard to ignore. Dozens of people keeping cover over extended periods of time, or one small group, and the right tool in the right place. Not rooting for one or the other, but the threat is real.
To her Wall Street owners: Hillary Clinton: “But if everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. so, you need both a public and a private position.” - Hillary Clinton: "I'm kind of far removed from the struggles of the Middle Class"
More of the old saw from the left that continues to say that conservatives must give up their principles to win...I don't buy it.The GOP will continue to lose presidential elections until it changes course and finds someone who can attract broad national support.
uh huh....#2. My head is not in the sand.
Refer to quote, and response #2#3. Europe is in no danger of collapse.
So what.....?#4. I am enjoying my life.
You too.Have a nice day.

Why It's Dumb to Call Obama a Socialist - BusinessWeek
Two years later, the economy is growing again, albeit slowly and fitfully. In an election campaign supposed to be a referendum on Barack Obama’s first term, it would be useful to debate the efficacy of his actions to stop the crisis and heal the economy. But that’s not the debate that’s taking place out on the trail, at least not in any rational sense. Calling the president a socialist may, regrettably, yield some benefit in the GOP primary. But it’s impossible to claim that Obama is both a socialist and also a pawn of Wall Street — and by opting for the former, Republicans have probably chosen the weaker line of attack.
Shortly after that outage in 2003, the electric utilities began an aggressive tree pruning program in our area. The homeowner had no say if the limbs and foliage of their trees were anywhere near the lines. In most cases, the pruning did look good, but in others it looked as if they just started at some arbitrary point on the tree and chainsawed top to bottom, no exceptions. It looked like the trees had been given the equivalent of a military haircut, but only on the part of the tree facing the street. Ghastly looking! Maybe the crews were running behind time, and had to do something quickly, and I don't know what the utilities had to pay to settle lawsuits, but people were outraged, because a lot of the trees died
Sounds like he needs to mount the oven on a articulating pedestal that would rotate the oven based on the oven's temperature setpoint.
A small DC stepper motor that takes in a 4-20 Milli-amp or 2-10 vdc input from a small programable controller with a open source code so adjustments could be made would do the trick.
A thermostat or thermistor would be the input into the controller with the 4-20 milli-amp out put signal controlling the dc stepper motor.
Sounds like fun actually.
It also sounds technical but it's just a basic control loop and allot of the electronic parts outlets carry small controllers, motors and parts needed for little inventions like that.
If he's even moderately inclined tecnically he could figure it out.
Vellemen makes some small open source controllers and the rest of the parts can be purchased at a hobby shop or electronics parts store.
Rich Lowry asks the $1,000,000 question: If where the Commander in Chief was on the night of the Benghazi attacks is "irrelevant", as Dan Pfeifer claims, then why are they keeping it secret?
