July 30, 2012

According to ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,” President Obama canceled the raid to kill Osama bin Laden three times at the urging of Valerie Jarrett, the Daily Caller reported Sunday.

Richard Miniter, the author of the new book, said that Obama canceled the raid in “January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March,” David Martosko wrote.

When Obama finally gave the order in early May, he waited 16 hours to do so, the Daily Mail reported.

Nevertheless, the entire “Democrat-media complex” acted as though Obama made the most historic decision in history. Even Vice President Joe Biden called it the “most audacious” plan conceived in the last 500 years.

The Daily Caller added that Miniter cited “an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning.”

Martosko wrote:

Obama administration officials also said after the raid that the president had delayed giving the order to kill the arch-terrorist the day before the operation was carried out, in what turned out to be his fourth moment of indecision. At the time, the White House blamed the delay on unfavorable weather conditions near bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

But Miniter said weather reports from the U.S. Air Force Combat Meteorological Center showed ideal conditions on the day in question.

“President Obama’s greatest success was actually his greatest failure,” he told the Daily Caller.

The revelation would seem to lend credibility to a report in May that said Obama knew the whereabouts of the terror mastermind as early as summer 2010, but took no action.

Nevertheless, the Obama campaign team has used the raid to bolster support in the upcoming election – going so far as to issue an ad asking if a President Romney would have made the decision.

“[Obama] took the harder, and the more honorable path,” former president Bill Clinton said in the ad. “He had to decide. And that’s what you hire the president to do. You hire the president to make the calls when no one else can do it.”

“The commander-in-chief gets one chance to make the right decision,” the ad said before asking: “What path would Mitt Romney have taken?”

Clinton himself missed several opportunities to get bin Laden.

In 2003, Miniter wrote in “Losing bin Laden” that Clinton “allowed the September 11 attacks to happen by squandering more than a dozen opportunities to capture or kill bin Laden. In two cases the terrorist leader’s exact location was known,” the Telegraph reported.

The current book “traces the arc of six key Obama administration decisions, and shows how the president made them — and, often, failed to make them,” the Daily Caller said.

August 10, 2012                    9:08 p.m.

It seems that the vice presidency is never as important as it is right now.

Or at least as it seems to be at roughly this point every four years, when the nominating conventions are approaching and the political world is whipped up in “veepstakes” frenzy.

One of the great political mysteries with each presidential campaign is who the eventual nominee might pick as his would-be vice president, a process that is meant to be and often is secretive, even in a campaign atmosphere driven by leaks. And, right on cue, reporters and political insiders are looking for any hint of a shred of a clue from Mitt Romney as to which Republican he’ll tap as his running mate.

When he addressed the issue in an interview Thursday he was characteristically cagey, saying only that he expected “to have a person that has a strength of character, a vision for the country that adds something to the political discourse about the direction of the country.” That arguably is a description that could suit any of the leading possibilities – Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan or former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty – and  yet a debate ensued about whether Romney tipped his hand.

This weekend, television cameras will tail some of the would-be VP candidates as they campaign in November battlegrounds on Romney’s behalf. Chances are they’ll each be asked a version of the same questions about the process countless times. And it won’t be long before networks begin staking out the short-listers at their homes.

The interest isn’t just on the part of the media, either. Politico reported Friday morning that more than 200,000 people downloaded the Romney campaign’s special app to alert users when the choice is made.

And yet, as important as the process is – or, perhaps more accurately, as important as breaking the story is to some news organizations – chances are the eventual choice will go largely unnoticed in the final two months of the campaign. There are only a handful of big moments for the running mates – a convention speech, the vice presidential debate and perhaps some network interviews.

Otherwise, the standing order is to “do no harm,” that is, stay on message and away from bad headlines. Sarah Palin’s time as John McCain’s running mate four years ago showed just what can happen when the choice strays from the norm, and the benefits and risks of a bolder choice.

So why the “BFD,” to quote our current second in command?

Consider this: Since John Adams was elected in 1789, there have been 13,794 days, or roughly the combined equivalent of 38 years, in which the nation had no sitting vice president.

Put another way, the office has been vacant one out of every 12th day since Adams first took that post, one that he famously would come to deride as being the most insignificant office ever conceived.

Turns out the vice presidency was so important to the founders that the U.S. Constitution had no mechanism for filling a vacancy in the post until the 25th amendment was ratified 45 years ago, just four years after Lyndon Johnson assumed the presidency following John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Until that time, in the event of a vacancy, no replacement was chosen until the subsequent election.

Beyond that most important of vice presidential duties – ascending to the presidency if the worst should happen – the office has only gained power and influence in recent years because presidents wanted it to. Since Jimmy Carter offered Walter Mondale a greater role as his partner in governing in 1977, the role has grown to become one of chief surrogate and senior advisor, often with a significant piece of policy real estate. That’s certainly been the case with  Joe Biden for Barack Obama.

But as Biden has also shown, the media tends only to focus on the No. 2 when he makes a mistake or goes off message. As we obsessively track the whereabouts of Portman, Pawlenty and Ryan, among others, Biden has been on vacation all week, at a beach in his home state in Delaware.

12:00 PM EDT             Monday June 25, 2012

The U.S. Supreme Court will rule Thursday on the constitutionality of the sweeping health care law championed by President Barack Obama.

The high court announced a series of other decisions on Monday, but not the most anticipated one. It announced that all remaining rulings for the year will come in three days.

The stakes cannot be overstated — what the justices decide will have an immediate and long-term impact on all Americans, both in how they get medicine and health care, and also in vast, yet unknown areas of “commerce.”

Saving this ruling for the final day “may not be political, but they understand drama,” said David Cole, a Georgetown University constitutional law professor. He added, “It’s also the most difficult case, the most important case, so they may want the extra few days to make sure that they’re happy with their written opinions.”

The nation’s highest court heard three days of politically charged hearings in March on the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a landmark but controversial measure passed by congressional Democrats despite pitched Republican opposition.

The challenge focused primarily on the law’s requirement that most Americans buy health insurance or pay a fine.

Supporters of the plan argued the “individual mandate” is necessary for the system to work, while critics argued it is an unconstitutional intrusion on individual freedom.

Four different federal appeals courts heard challenges to parts of the law before the Supreme Court ruling, and came up with three different results.

Courts in Cincinnati and Washington voted to uphold the law, while the appeals court in Atlanta struck down the individual mandate.

A fourth panel, in Richmond, Virginia, put its decision off until penalties for failing to buy health insurance take effect in 2014.

The polarizing law, dubbed “Obamacare” by many, is the signature legislation of Obama’s time in office.

After a lengthy and heated debate marked by intense opposition from the health insurance industry and conservative groups, the law passed Congress along strictly partisan lines in March 2010.

When Obama signed the legislation later that month, he called it historic said it marked a “new season in America.”

While it was not the comprehensive national health care system liberals initially sought, supporters said the law would reduce health care costs, expand coverage and protect consumers.

The law establishes a staged series of reforms over several years, including banning insurance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, forbidding insurers from setting a dollar limit on health coverage payouts, and requiring them to cover preventative care at no additional cost to consumers.

It also required individuals to buy health insurance, either through their employers or a state-sponsored exchange, or face a fine beginning in 2014.

Supporters argue the individual mandate is critical to the success of the legislation, because it expands the pool of people paying for insurance and ensures that healthy people do not opt out of buying insurance until they needed it.

Critics said the provision gave the government too much power over what they said should be a personal economic decision.

Twenty-six states led by Florida say individuals cannot be forced to buy insurance, a “product” they may neither want nor need. And they argue that if that provision is unconstitutional, the entire law must go.

The Justice Department countered that since every American will need medical care at some point in their lives, individuals do not “choose” whether to participate in the health care market.

The partisan debate around such a sweeping piece of legislation has encompassed almost every traditional hot-button topic: abortion and contraception funding, state and individual rights, federal deficits, end-of-life care, and the overall economy.

During arguments on March 27, Justice Anthony Kennedy said the law appeared to “change the relationship between the government and the individual in a profound way.”

Chief Justice John Roberts argued that “all bets are off” when it comes to federal government authority if Congress was found to have the authority to regulate health care in the name of commerce.

Liberal justices, however, argued people who don’t pay into the health system by purchasing insurance make care more expensive for everyone.

“It is not your free choice” to stay out of the market for life, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said during arguments.

“I think the justices probably came into the argument with their minds made up. They had hundreds of briefs and months to study them,” said Thomas Goldstein, publisher of SCOTUSblog.com and a prominent Washington attorney, though he conceded that “the oral arguments (in March) might have changed their minds around the margin.”

Americans are largely split over the reform effort and its legality, according to polling.

A March poll for CNN by ORC International found that while support for the law appears to be growing, 50% of Americans opposed the law, 43% supported it and 7% had no opinion.

Nearly three-quarters of respondents said they wanted the Supreme Court to overturn at least some of the law’s provisions, although the poll did not specify which ones.

The law, which helped spur the creation of the conservative tea party movement, is likely to be a centerpiece of the presidential election campaign.

Obama’s presumptive Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, has promised to repeal the measure if elected.

But 76% of respondents in the March CNN/ORC poll said a Supreme Court ruling against the law still wouldn’t change their minds about whom to vote for in November.

The 2010 passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act came after months of bare-knuckled fights over politics and policy and a century of federal efforts to offer universal health care.

The legislation signed by Obama reached 2,700 pages, nine major sections and 450-some provisions.

The first lawsuits challenging the health care overhaul began just hours after the president signed the legislation.

Friday June 15, 2012           2:34 PM

 

A Secret Service employee implicated in the agency’s prostitution scandal in Cartagena this year was a supervisor with security information about President Obama’s visit there.

Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan, whose agency has confirmed the involvement of the supervisor, delayed two weeks before disclosing that information to congressional oversight committees in the wake of the public revelations about the scandal, according to a timeline provided by Sullivan’s office and a member of Congress briefed by the director.

Also, while publicly testifying about the incident late last month, Sullivan did not disclose that an additional agency employee implicated in the controversy was a supervisor and had access to security information about the visit. Sullivan later urged lawmakers not to make that information public, a transcript of his testimony shows. An agency official briefed on the probe said the director delayed providing that information to protect possible undercover agents.

On Friday, the Associated Press released a list of formal misconduct allegations made about Secret Service staff since 2004. The list, heavily redacted complaints made to the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general, included allegations that staff had solicited prostitutes, been involved in sexual assaults, leaked sensitive information, published pornography, improperly used weapons and engaged in drunken behavior.

One anonymous complaint asked the inspector general to investigate allegations that Sullivan had ordered that a contract worth millions of dollars be awarded to a specific contractor without competition.

“The procurement staff was allegedly warned ‘not to interfere’ after questioning the award,” the documents report.

The documents do not indicate in many cases whether the complaints were proven to be true or whether any actions were ordered as a result. Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said the list was simply a log of incoming complaints. “Allegations of employee misconduct, whether they are received at the Secret Service, at DHS-OIG, or on an anonymous hotline, are taken seriously and fully investigated,” he said.

In the Cartagena misconduct case, the newly named employee, John Christman, is a supervisor in the agency’s intelligence division, which reviews risks and threats to the president. He was assigned as an intelligence officer in an incident command center for Obama’s Cartagena trip, according to agency personnel briefed on the probe.

Christman declined comment through the agency, and Larry Berger, a lawyer for the federal law enforcement union representing members of the service implicated in the scandal over allegations that agents solicited prostitutes, declined to comment.

Christman is the third supervisor implicated in the case, which has roiled the careers of more than a dozen agents and uniformed officers in a revered federal law enforcement agency.

Donovan said Christman’s access to security information never jeopardized the president’s security.

June 15, 2012

President Obama flashed anger for the first time in recent memory today as an eccentric conservative reporter interrupted his speech on immigration in the Rose Garden.

Neil Munro of The Daily Caller, a right-wing news site, shouted at Obama in the middle of his speech formally announcing looser deportation rules, “Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?”

Irritated, Obama glared at Munro and told him not to interrupt, said he “didn’t ask for an argument” and said the new order is “the right thing to do.”

The change on immigration relaxes rules for younger illegal immigrants who haven’t broken the law since coming into the country as children, a move that has riled Republicans while bringing the issue back into the fore of the 2012 election. The Homeland Security Department will no longer deport such immigrants, and work permits will be given to them.

The more lenient treatment is similar to the proposals in the DREAM Act, legislation supported by Obama but blocked in Congress.

“We’re a better nation than one that expels innocent young kids,” Obama said in his speech before he was interrupted.

The Obama administration is likely to deny that politics played a role in the announcement, but the timing is ideal for the president’s re-election campaign. In the GOP primary, Mitt Romney adopted strictly conservative positions against illegal immigration in his effort to woo right-wing voters. He backs a strong fence along the border with Mexico, opposes most amnesty and boasts of his move as Massachusetts governor to deny in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.

Democrats have said they plan to hold Romney to those positions, painting him as a candidate with extreme views on immigration. Romney’s campaign stumbled last month when the Republican National Committee’s director of Hispanic outreach told reporters that Romney was “still deciding what his position on immigration is,” fueling the notion that he holds few true convictions.

Kevin Madden, a former Romney adviser, said on MSNBC that “there are going to be a lot more questions here, I think particularly up on Capitol Hill and the Congress’s role in whether or not they believe that the president can go out and around Capitol Hill and around legislatures and around Congress on something like this.”

Obama’s announcement today is likely to curry favor with Hispanics, a key growing voting bloc that could determine the winner in November in important states like Florida, Colorado and Nevada. The president beats Romney among Hispanics in polls, but most Latinos say they disapprove of Obama’s deportation policy. Obama also plans to speak to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials in Florida next week, as will Romney.

In an interview with ABC News, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano denied that the plan was crafted at the direction of the White House.

“No, this was developed by the department,” she said. “It was developed within my office, and it was, as I said, before a logical progression from decisions we have been making over the last three, three-and-a-half years.”

Under the new rules, up to 800,000 immigrants will be affected. Deportation will no longer apply to immigrants who came into the country before they were 16 and are now younger than 30, have lived here for five straight years, have never been convicted of a crime or graduated from high school or got a GED.

Such immigrants will be allowed to apply for a two-year work permit that can be renewed unlimited times.

GOP Rep. Steve King released a statement saying he was “outraged” by the new rules. “The American people have rejected amnesty because it will erode the Rule of Law. In much the same way, I believe the American people will reject President Obama for his repeated efforts to violate the Constitutional separation of powers,” he said.

Peter King, the Republican chairman of the House committee on homeland security, said the White House is “overstepping its authority by weakening immigration laws without Congressional approval.”

David Buenrostro, Adrian James, and Jahel Ramos protest outside the Obama campaign offices in Culver City, Calif. The students demand that president Obama issue an executive order to stop deportations of illegal immigrant students.

June 15, 2012                 8:20 a.m.

The Obama administration will stop deporting young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and who do not pose a security threat, senior administration officials said this morning, a move that could prove important in a presidential campaign that will turn in part on who wins over Latino voters.

Effective immediately, young immigrants who arrived in the U.S. illegally before they turned 16 will be allowed to apply for work permits as long as they have no criminal history and meet other criteria, officials said.

Obama has called for a broad overhaul of immigration policy and embraces the concept of Dream Act legislation, which would create a path for immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children to legally remain in the country.

The legislation has repeatedly stalled in Congress.

Republican leaders, including presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney, have argued for greater efforts to identify and deport anyone living in the U.S. illegally, including those who have lived and worked here for years, not just those found guilty of committing crimes.

The change the White House announced Friday would allow illegal immigrants under the age of 30 to stay and work in the country if they don’t pose a national security or public safety risk.

Those who meet the criteria will be eligible to apply for deferred action on deportation for a period of two years, and that status will be renewable, one official said. They also will be able to apply for authorization to work.

Individuals have to meet numerous requirements to be eligible to apply. They must have come to the U.S. before they turned 16 and must have resided in the U.S. continuously for at least five years. They must be present in the U.S. now, be enrolled in school, and hold a high school diploma or GED or serve in the U.S. military. Veterans who have been discharged honorably also will be eligible.

Disqualified from application would be felons, immigrants convicted of violent crimes, and repeat offenders of immigration law. Also ineligible would be those convicted of a significant misdemeanor offense or more than one misdemeanor, or those who for some other reason pose a security or safety threat.

The change does not grant permanent lawful status, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told reporters Friday morning.

“It is not immunity. It is not amnesty. It is an exercise of discretion to ensure these people are not in the removal process and ensure that we are not clogging the immigration system with low-priority cases involving productive young people,” she said.

“We don’t consider this a permanent solution for anyone,” a senior administration official said. “Some future administration can make its own decision on how to treat this decision.”

Obama plans to discuss the changes in the Rose Garden on Friday.

Faced with a gridlocked Congress, Obama has used deportation policy to send messages to Latino voters about his views on immigration. But sometimes those messages are conflicting: His administration has boasted of a stepped-up focus on tracking down illegal immigrants with criminal records, and the U.S. has set records for deportations under Obama.

Last month, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced it would increase by nearly 25% the number of agents charged with finding and deporting illegal immigrants with criminal records, pulling 150 officers from desks and backroom jobs to add extra fugitive search teams around the country.

Yet ICE also has told prosecutors to use their discretion on whether to push deportation cases against people with strong family ties in the U.S., including college students and members of the military.

Since Romney became the presumptive nominee, some strategists have urged Romney to take a softer approach. But the former Massachusetts governor has not yet taken a stance on more lenient proposals aimed at accommodating concerns of young people.

May 16, 2012           11:30 AM CT

Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard said fiscal policies are needed to reduce the 8.1 percent U.S. unemployment rate and additional asset purchases by the Fed, or quantitative easing, would risk a surge in inflation.

“It may be better to focus on labor market policies to directly address unemployment instead of taking further risks with monetary policy,” Bullard said in Louisville, Kentucky. “If anything, the committee may be trying to do too much with monetary policy, risking monetary instability for the U.S. and the global economy.”

The policy-making Federal Open Market Committee on April 25 reiterated its expectation that subdued inflation and economic slack will probably warrant “exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate at least through late 2014.” Bullard has said he is opposed to such a pledge because policy should be made in response to economic data and not rely on a public timetable.

“The U.S. macroeconomic data have been stronger than expected as of last autumn,” Bullard said to business people and community leaders in a presentation hosted by the St. Louis Fed. “The main risk is that the committee will, as it has in the past, overcommit to the ultra-easy policy. The policy has been appropriate so far, but could reignite a 1970s-type experience globally if pursued too aggressively.”

Bullard also said near-zero interest rates could be creating “distortions” in the economy, including “punishing savers.”

Smallest Increase

Payrolls climbed by 115,000 workers in April, the smallest increase in six months, Labor Department figures showed. The jobless rate fell to a three-year low of 8.1 percent as people left the labor force, adding to worries that the economic expansion is cooling.

Fed officials have been discussing how much of the U.S. unemployment rate has been caused by “structural” factors such as a mismatch of worker skills and available jobs. Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker said the mismatch may lead to a higher natural rate of unemployment. Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said “continued weakness in aggregate demand is likely the predominant factor” in unemployment.

“Labor market policies such as unemployment insurance and worker retraining have direct effects on the unemployed,” Bullard said in his presentation.

If the U.S. economy encountered another shock, Bullard said “the committee can respond as appropriate to a significant deterioration” in the outlook.

Quarterly Report

Bullard also repeated his call for the Fed to produce a quarterly monetary policy report that would “provide a more fulsome discussion of the outlook for the U.S. economy.”

Lacker, as well as the presidents of Fed banks in San Francisco, Atlanta and Philadelphia, have said since the FOMC meeting that more Fed stimulus probably won’t be needed.

In a press conference following the April 24-25 meeting, Bernanke signaled that further easing is unlikely unless the economy unexpectedly deteriorates. Bernanke said it would be “reckless” to pursue policies that would drive up inflation when it’s already near the Fed’s target, while noting he’s “prepared to do more” should conditions worsen.

Bullard, who doesn’t vote on monetary policy this year, was the first Fed official in 2010 to call for a second round of asset purchases by the central bank. The Fed pushed down its targetinterest rate close to zero in December 2008 and has engaged in two rounds of asset purchases totaling $2.3 trillion to boost the economy.

Bullard, 51, joined the St. Louis Fed’s research department in 1990 and became president of the regional bank in 2008. His district includes Arkansas and parts of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.

May 9, 2012, 8:05 a.m.

President Obama has never been wildly popular in West Virginia, but Tuesday’s Democratic primary marked the state’s sharpest rejection of the president yet. A Texas prisoner, listed as Inmate No. 11593-051, received 69,766 votes, a surprising 41% of the total, showing that many West Virginians would vote for just about anyone other than Obama, regardless of their status as a felon. Obama still won the primary, with 59% of the vote.

Keith Judd, the prisoner in question, is currently serving a 17½-year sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana after being sentenced for extortion in an altercation with the University of New Mexico.

By receiving more than 15% of the vote in West Virginia, Judd is technically allowed at least one state delegate, though no one has yet stepped forward to head to the Democratic National Convention for him. Tuesday’s face-off wasn’t the first time both Judd and Obama have been on the ballot, though, as Judd finished third in the 2008 Idaho primary behind both Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton with 1.7% of the vote.

To be eligible for the ballot, all Judd needed to do was pay a $2,500 filing fee and fill out a “notarized certification of announcement,” along with meeting other residency and age requirements.

Both West Virginia’s Democratic and Republican primaries, it should be noted, are open to independent voters.

Tuesday’s primary results follow Obama’s lengthy record of electoral failure and minuscule popular support in West Virginia. During the 2008 primary, he lost to Clinton by 41 points as her campaign was winding down its efforts. He then lost the state to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) by 13 points in the general election.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) made headlines during the 2010 election for his thoroughly armed efforts to distance himself from the president as he sought to fill the seat of the late Sen. Robert Byrd. Obama currently holds a 32.7% approval rating according to a recent Gallup state-by-state poll. That approval rating, by Gallup’s numbers, is the fifth-lowest nationwide.

Mitt Romney, who won the Republican primary Tuesday with 69% of the vote, currently holds a 17 point advantage over Obama in the polls, according to The West Virginia Poll.

George Clooney and President Obama

May 10, 2012        4:52 am

It’s being called ‘Starmageddon,’ and President Obama’s fundraiser at George Clooney’s home tonight is likely to cause some local traffic problems.

Officials warn Obama’s visit to the San Fernando Valley will probably snarl rush-hour traffic in and around Studio City.

Obama will be attending a dinner fundraiser at Clooney’s Studio City home, a party expected to gross $15 million for the president’s reelection campaign, according to organizers.

Details on street closures were released on Twitter by Councilman Paul Krekorian, who represents the area.

Motorists driving on Laurel Canyon Boulevard and adjacent streets north of Ventura Boulevard can expect delays and/or street closures from 5 p.m to 8 p.m.

“If you live south of Ventura in Studio City … local access to the area will be virtually sealed off from about 8 to 10 p.m., meaning all local residents will need to show a current photo ID for home access,” Krekorian said in a letter.

He said police are advising residents in Fryman Canyon to stay home or make other arrangements for the day.

The president will be arriving at 6 p.m at Los Angeles International Airport and will be taken to Studio City in a helicopter and by motorcade.

Obama will be spending the night in Beverly Hills.

President Obama on gay marriage

May 9, 2012        6:03 p.m.

President Obama’s decision to endorse same-sex marriage staked out a stance that carries uncertain political risks but one he said was rooted in the biblical admonition “to treat others the way you would want to be treated.”

Obama’s endorsement Wednesday, a milestone for the gay rights movement, was the first from a sitting president and a potentially powerful tail wind for a cause still struggling for electoral approval. It comes as the country remains divided over whether same-sex marriages should have the same recognition and legal standing as traditional ones, and six months before an election expected to be so tight it may hinge on small slices of votes in a handful of key states.

He equivocated for more than a year, saying that his position was “evolving.” More recently, he came under considerable pressure — from his somewhat deflated base and a powerful network of gay donors — to speak his mind before the November election. His announcement was hastened by a similar declaration from Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday, which prompted calls for Obama to speak out or risk falling behind the curve.

“At a certain point, I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama told ABC News’ Robin Roberts in an interview hastily arranged by the White House to quiet the fallout from the Biden remarks.

Obama told the “Good Morning America” anchor that he arrived at the decision by talking to gay friends, staff members, his two daughters and his wife, who he said shared his support. His Christian faith and the golden rule factored in. “In the end, the values that I care most deeply about and she cares most deeply about is how we treat other people,” Obama said.

Obama had cited religion in opposing same-sex marriages as he campaigned for president, but in December 2010 declared his position was evolving. That position was widely viewed as a wink and a nod to supporters of gay rights, who believed the president was withholding a public declaration of support out of concerns about alienating some key voters.

Nationally, a slim majority of voters favors gay marriages, according to most polls — a majority that has been increasing because of shifting attitudes among young people and middle-class voters. Still, religious, African American, Latino and older voters remain more likely to express opposition, and 38 states have adopted prohibitions of same-sex marriage, according the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Some Democrats contend that the voters most strongly opposed are unlikely to vote for Obama anyway, adding gay marriage, like abortion, to the list of social issues dividing partisans.

But the president’s announcement is likely to hurt him in the South, where 1 in 3 swing voters strongly opposes gay marriage, a recent Pew Research Center poll found. Just this week, North Carolina, which Obama narrowly won in 2008, approved one of the strongest bans on same-sex unions in the country. The state increasingly appears out of reach for Obama this year.

More crucial to his reelection chances will be the impact in Virginia, where a recent survey showed him with a slight lead over Mitt Romney. Polls in the state show the electorate nearly evenly divided. There’s also a danger of turning off some religious voters, such as white Protestants in the Rust Belt or Catholic Latinos. On the other hand, young voters and strong supporters of gay marriage may be energized.

White House aides believe there’s no way to predict the “crosscurrents,” said a senior administration official who, like others, requested anonymity to be able to discuss internal deliberations.

But Obama’s decision is unleashing a wave of financial support from gay and lesbian donors and is likely to heighten demand for tickets to a June 6 LGBT fundraising gala in Los Angeles featuring the singer Pink.

“Within minutes, people were calling with their credit cards. They’re thrilled,” said Andrew Tobias, treasurer of the Democratic National Committee and a top fundraising bundler for Obama. He said one donor pledged $10,000 and decided to fly with his partner from Los Angeles to attend an Obama fundraiser in New York on Monday.

The president’s campaign was quick to capitalize on his decision, sending an email to supporters asking for donations.

On Wednesday, Republican nominee Romney emphasized his consistency on the issue in response to Obama’s changed position.

“I have the same view that I’ve had since running for office,” he said in reaction to the president’s statement. Romney was a staunch advocate of gay rights when he was running for governor of Massachusetts in 2002. But he never endorsed same-sex marriage and later became an outspoken leader of the drive to ban it after a court legalized the practice in Massachusetts.

“My view is that marriage itself is a relationship between a man and a woman, and that’s my own preference,” he told reporters Wednesday. “I know other people have differing views. This is a very tender and sensitive topic, as are many social issues.”

For months, the president’s advisors gave no indication that he planned to reveal a new stance before the November election, believing that Obama’s record on other gay rights issues would suffice to win over an increasingly powerful network of gay donors and other ardent supporters. Obama ended the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy barring gay soldiers from serving openly and dropped the legal defense of the Defense of Marriage Act.

But advisors say the president decided a few weeks ago that he had changed his mind and wanted to make an announcement before the Democratic National Convention in September.

Michelle Obama was a strong influence, administration officials said. She went out of her way to invite gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender couples to events she sponsored for military families.

Several gay staffers work in the West Wing and at least one pair are in a committed relationship and raising children. The Obama daughters also have friends with same-sex parents, whom the first family has gotten to know.

“He was ready,” said a second senior administration official.

Biden’s comments pushed up the timing. The “evolving” stance threatened to undermine not only the president’s standing on gay issues but also his credibility. The president’s foot-dragging on an issue important to his base undoubtedly clashed with his new campaign slogan, “Forward.” 

Obama’s announcement was celebrated by gay rights activists and Democratic allies.

“The president’s words will no doubt inspire thousands more conversations around kitchen tables and in church pews,” said Human Right Campaign President Joe Solmonese. “We are confident that our nation will continue to move inexorably toward equality.”

Obama’s new position is also a marker in his party’s evolution and solidifies, for now, a clear partisan divide on gay rights. For more than a decade, leading Republicans and Democrats had opposed same-sex marriage. Obama has taken multiple stances on the issue. In 1996, as a candidate for the state Senate in Illinois, he told a gay rights group that he favored same-sex marriages and would fight efforts to block them. As a candidate for the Senate in 2004, Obama said he believed marriage is between a man and a woman, citing his faith as the reason for that belief.

In 2008, he repeated that assertion to influential evangelical pastor Rick Warren, adding: “For me as a Christian it’s also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.” But Obama also said he would not support an amendment to put that definition in the Constitution.

Defining marriage “has been a matter of state law. That has been our tradition,” he said. At the same time, Obama opposed a California ballot initiative outlawing same-sex marriage because it was “divisive and discriminatory.”

Obama had plenty of company in such murky waters. But since then, Obama’s party has steadily moved toward support for gay marriage.

L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is the chairman of the party’s convention, was among the first to call on Democrats to add support for same-sex marriage to the party platform. Obama’s announcement probably heads off an awkward battle over that issue at the convention.

Sandra Fluke

March 2, 2012      11:13 a.m.

President Obama weighed in Friday on a mounting controversy over radio provocateur Rush Limbaugh‘s crude comments about Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke with a phone call expressing his support for Fluke.

Limbaugh has repeatedly called Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” for her advocacy for birth control coverage.

Obama “wanted to express his disappointment that she has been the subject of inappropriate personal attacks, and thank her for exercising her rights as a citizen to speak out on an issue of public policy,” White House Spokesman Jay Carney said at a Friday briefing. “It was a very good conversation.”

Fluke had attempted to testify last month at a congressional committee hearing on the Obama administration’s new rule requiring employers to offer health plans that include birth control coverage, but she was excluded from the panel. She testified instead at a mock hearing organized by Democratic lawmakers, in which she advocated for the new policy and said she had a friend who lost an ovary because of lack of contraceptive care.

Limbaugh blasted Fluke on his Wednesday show, saying she had argued that “she must be paid to have sex.”

“What does that make her?” he said. “It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute.”

Democrats seized on the comments. In an email touting the $1.1 million the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee had raised in one week off its “War on Women” campaign, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called the comments “vicious and inappropriate attacks.”

Limbaugh doubled down on the comments during his Thursday show.

“The reaction that they are having to what I said yesterday about Susan Fluke — or Sandra Fluke, whatever her name is — the Georgetown student who went before a congressional committee and said she’s having so much sex, she’s going broke buying contraceptives and wants us to buy them,” Limbaugh said. “I said, ‘Well, what would you call someone who wants us to pay for her to have sex? What would you call that woman? You’d call ’em a slut, a prostitute or whatever.’”

Carney said Obama felt the comments were “reprehensible, they were disappointing.”

“It is disappointing that those kinds of personal and crude attacks could be leveled against someone like this young law school student who was simply expressing her opinion on a matter of public policy, and doing so with a great deal of poise,” Carney said.

In an interview with NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Fluke said the phone call “meant a lot.”

“He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women, and what was really personal for me was that he said to tell my parents that they should be proud,” Fluke said.

AUGUST 29, 2011, 11:13 A.M. ET

President Barack Obama has chosen Princeton University’s Alan Krueger to be
chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

“As one of this country’s leading economists, Alan has been a key voice on a
vast array of economic issues for more than two decades,” Mr. Obama said Monday
in a statement. He continued, “Alan understands the difficult challenges our
country faces, and I have confidence that he will help us meet those challenges
as one of the leaders on my economic team.”

If confirmed by the Senate, Mr. Krueger, a labor economist, is likely to
provide a voice inside the administration for more-aggressive government action
to bring down unemployment and, particularly, to address long-term
joblessness.

Mr. Krueger, 50 years old, returned to Princeton a year ago after serving as
assistant Treasury secretary for economic policy during the first two years of
the Obama administration—which means he has recently cleared the sometimes
treacherous Senate confirmation process.

He would succeed Austan Goolsbee, who left earlier this month to reclaim his
teaching post at the University of Chicago.

Mr. Krueger has been on Princeton’s faculty since 1987, the year he earned
his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University. He did a stint as chief
economist at the Labor Department during the Clinton administration.

The work he has done in academia ranges from attempts to explain why job
growth wasn’t stronger during the 2000s, to findings that increases in the
minimum wage don’t depress employment, to a work showing that terrorists often
come from middle-class—and often college-educated—backgrounds.

While at Treasury, Mr. Krueger worked on analyses of a variety of programs,
including tax incentives to encourage employers to hire the employed, the “cash
for clunkers” initiative to jump-start auto purchases and Build America taxable
municipal bonds.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, through a spokeswoman, said that “given
his expertise in labor economics, he is precisely the right choice to lead the
CEA at this moment in history.”

Martin Feldstein, who was CEA chairman in the Reagan White House, praised the
choice. “His experience at the Treasury will give him a running start in his new
job,” he said. “Alan is an expert in labor-market problems, taxation and the
economics of terrorism. I hope the president listens to him.”

The council’s members generally are drawn from academia, and they often serve
for only two years. Their influence has waxed and waned over time, depending on
the internal dynamics of the particular White House economic team, the
relationship between the president and the CEA chairman and the political
agility of the council members.

Like those who previously held the post in the Obama administration, Mr.
Goolsbee and Christina Romer of the University of California at Berkeley, Mr.
Kreuger is likely to be part of the public face of the president’s economic
team.

The other two members of the CEA, both of whom have been confirmed by the
Senate, are labor economist Katharine Abraham and antitrust specialist Carl
Shapiro.

Among the other candidates for the CEA chairmanship considered by the White
House were Rebecca Blank, currently acting Commerce secretary, and Alan
Auerbach, a pubic-finance specialist at UC-Berkeley.

The three-member council was created by Congress in 1946 to advise the
president and evaluate government policies. Each member, by law, is to be a
person “who, as a result of his training, experience, and attainments, is
exceptionally qualified to analyze and interpret economic developments, to
appraise programs and activities of the government…and to formulate and
recommend national economic policy to promote employment, production, and
purchasing power under free competitive enterprise.”

File:Official portrait of Barack Obama.jpg

08:45 PM ET, 08/13/2011

In South Carolina today Gov. Rick Perry announced his run for the presidency at a gathering put on by RedState (a hard-core conservative Web site, which opposed the debt-ceiling deal and has battled against Republican leaders in Congress). He struck conservative themes in a well-delivered if somewhat conventional speech:

I come to South Carolina because I will not sit back and accept the path that America is on. Because a great country requires a better direction. Because a renewed nation needs a new president.

It is time to get America working again. And that’s why, with the support of my family and an unwavering belief in the goodness of America, I declare to you today as a candidate for president of the United States.

It’s time for America to believe again. It’s time to believe that the promise of our future is far greater than even our best days behind us. It’s time to believe again in the potential of private enterprise, set free from the shackles of overbearing federal government. And it’s time to truly restore our standing in the world and renew our faith in freedom as the best hope for peace in this world that’s beset with strife.

The change we seek will never emanate out of Washington, D.C. It will come from the windswept prairies of Middle America, the farms and factories across this great land, from the hearts and minds of the good-hearted Americans who will accept not a future that is less than our past, patriots — patriots who will not be consigned to a fate of less freedom in exchange for more government.

And he had plenty of barbs for President Obama: “In reality, this is just the most recent downgrade. The fact is for nearly three years, President Obama has been downgrading American jobs, downgrading our standing in the world, downgrading our financial stability, downgrading confidence and downgrading the hope of a better future for our children.” Perry did not shy away from foreign policy, either:

America’s standing in the world is in peril, not only because of disastrous economic policies, but from the incoherent muddle that they call foreign policy. Our president has insulted our friends and he’s encouraged our enemies, thumbing his nose at traditional allies like Israel. He seeks to dictate new borders for the Middle East and the oldest democracy there, Israel, while he is an abject failure in his constitutional duty to protect our borders in the United States.

His foreign policy seems to be based on alienating our traditional allies, while basing our domestic agenda on importing those failed Western European social values. We don’t need a president who apologizes for America. We need a president who protects and projects those values.

Despite Perry’s recent attendance at a prayer rally, it’s clear that jobs and the economy are going to be front and center. He reminded the crowd in South Carolina: “Since June of 2009, Texas is responsible for more than 40 percent of all of the new jobs created in America. Now think about that. We’re home to less than 10 percent of the population in America, but 40 percent of all the new jobs were created in that state.” Likewise, his Web site touts his recent record:“In June of 2011, 32,000 net new jobs were created in Texas — more than any of the other states. From June 2010 to June 2011, Texas led all other states by far, adding 220,000 net new jobs.”)

The decision to horn in on the Ames Straw Poll’s big news day has already raised hackles. As Politico noted, “That singular act of scene-stealing has prompted hand-wringing and hurt feelings from Iowans concerned about their state’s prized place in the political pecking order. . . . It’s Perry’s choice to go directly from Charleston to a meet-and-greet in New Hampshire. And it’s Perry’s choice to appear in Iowa on Sunday, giving the state’s political class something other than the straw poll results to chew on.” He might well decide, like Mitt Romney, to in essence cede Iowa to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), a state in which she is now quite plainly the belle of the ball.

His message , that Obama is hastening our decline economically and internationally, has the benefit of accuracy, widespread appeal and relevance. (Like the Tea Party that he courts, it also puts social issues somewhat off to the side.) The Standard & Poor’s downgrade has become a metaphor for America’s economic slippage and for the president’s inability to set the country on a path to recovery. Perry is smartly capitalizing on that development, using it as a refrain to highlight the administration’s incompetence domestically and internationally.

Perry must now navigate a path between Bachmann and Mitt Romney. In other words, he must be more credible than she and more conservative than the other two top-tier candidates. Bachmann showed her limitations in the debate Thursday. As Paul Gigot wrote:

Her admirers like her willingness to fight, but her claim that the Standard & Poor’s downgrade of U.S. debt vindicated her refusal to vote for a debt-ceiling increase illustrates why voters will never trust her with the White House and I doubt even the nomination.

Had Republicans forced a post-Aug. 2 shutdown of government services and risked default, Moody’s and Fitch would have joined S&P in downgrading U.S. debt. Either Ms. Bachmann knows this, in which case she is merely playing to the talk radio GOP base. Or she doesn’t know it, which makes her unready to be president. The Romney camp is hoping she wins the straw poll and the caucuses next year because it will make its road to the nomination easier. Her main achievement in the end may be to fatally wound Mr. Pawlenty.

Perry will not improve his chances by following such flights of fancy. He must be the serious conservative, the standard-bearer of successful reform and job creation.

As for Romney, the former Massachusetts governor is proving far more formidable than many imagined. He can sidestep an attack. He can reel off a list of policies in a one-minute answer. And to date he has been the contender who most looked and sounded the part of a presidential nominee. Perry can and almost certainly will try to knock Romney on health care and make the pitch that he, rather than Romney, is the most authentic conservative who can beat Obama. But I don’t think that is going to get him very far. For one thing, their position on issues is not likely to differ substantially.

Moreover, those who won’t vote for Romney, for example, because of health care or because they still can’t trust him on social issues, have already drifted to Bachmann. If Perry simply says, “Romney’s not conservative enough,” the question will still remain: Why Perry?

Perry’s task is therefore to prove himself more forceful, appealing, capable and dynamic than both Romney and Bachmann. Romney’s got a seven-point pitch on jobs; Perry has to be more credible (by stressing his own job creation record). Romney sounds solid on national security; Perry must appear more determined. In the same way that Romney seems more presidential than Bachmann, Perry must seem to be a more vivid, effective combatant than Romney.

Perry’s late entry is also a reminder (both in a positive and negative sense for his own fortunes) that the rest of the field is decidedly un-Southern. Romney, Bachmann and the rest of the field, in speech and manner, don’t rekindle the memory of George W. Bush; Perry does. He’ll have to demonstrate he has appeal to non-Texans. It’s telling he announced in South Carolina, but will he wear well in New Hampshire?

It won’t be easy for Perry to rise to the top of the pack.. Romney is well versed on the issues; Perry has gaps (e.g., foreign policy). Romney is a very experienced debater; Perry’s untested. Romney has a private-sector background to point to; Perry does not. Romney at this point has been fully vetted; Perry is going to have to withstand the downpour of unflattering accounts that questionhow good his record as governor has been. And voters concerned about electability will no doubt worry that Perry’s accent and Texas pride may not play well in all parts of the country.

Perry will have plenty of money, a record of job creation and a persona that matches up with the Tea Party’s populism. The challenge for Perry is to prove himself a superior candidate and the most effective opponent to go up against Obama in the general election. Can he do it? Well, that is the question of the hour.

Obama Check

06/29/11 05:46 PM ET

In 2008, many onlookers were surprised to see how quickly Barack Obama went from being a U.S. senator to the president of the United States. While some doubted that the newcomer with idealistic visions for the future could win the election, one Chicago woman placed her bets on the young politician years before.

Jermikko Shoshanna met Obama in 2003. Jermikko, an award-winning fashion designer based in Chicago, headed to Springfield, Ill. with a group of friends to celebrate the swearing-in of Illinois Senator Emil Jones as Senate president. She knew Jones, and after three hours in the car, was anxious to get inside and congratulate him.

But a security guard tried to turn away the group of friends.

“I was giving [the guard] a piece of my mind,” Jermikko said, when a “tall, skinny, handsome” young man approached and asked what the trouble was. He ultimately told the guard the women were with him, and the group entered Jones’ celebration.

“I wanted to find him while I was there and say ‘thank you,’ but it was so hectic,” Jermikko said. So, the group drove home. A year passed, and she never learned his name.

But a year later, Jermikko received a call from a friend who was hosting a fundraiser for an aspiring U.S. senator. She told HuffPost she begrudgingly attended, mostly to support her friend.

“I show up the day of the fundraiser to help her and there’s a photograph, a big poster of the man we’re doing the fundraiser for,” she said.  “I’m like ‘Oh shit, that’s him!’ ”

Finally, Jermikko was able to thank the man who helped her out in Springfield, and as she watched him at the fundraiser, something struck her.

“I’m looking at him thinking, ‘You know, there is something about this man. He’s going to be more than just a senator.’ ”

As Obama signed books and spoke with supporters, Jermikko decided to make a grand gesture. She took out her checkbook and wrote a check to “President Obama” for $1,000,000. (Scroll down to see it.)

“My grandmother always said I was a strange child,” she said, laughing. “I go over to him and I said, ‘You know, I think you’re going to be a president one day.’ And he looked up and said, ‘Yeah? From your mouth to God’s ear.’ I said, ‘Okay, well I want you to get used to signing big checks, so sign this. He just took my checkbook and signed it. Then he gave it back and said, ‘Now you’re not going to try and collect on this, are you?’ ”

Jermikko ended up supporting Obama in his bid for president years later and wasn’t too surprised that her prediction came true.

“I saw a president. I saw a leader; I saw this in him,” she said.

Now, she hopes the check will help her expand her fashion business. After a lot of thought, Jermikko decided to contact Gary Zimet, president of Moments in Time, a company that sells pieces of American and world history. So far, they have sold eight handwritten letters from President Obama, along with the actual Schindler’s List and other memorabilia. The check is being sold for $100,000.

Now, they are auctioning off the $1 million check.

“I thought about it and thought about it and felt, if this check can help me create more jobs here, since I’m diversifying my business, and help employ people, then it’s time to sell it,” Jermikko said.

While her fashion company is known for jackets and outerwear, last summer Jermikko decided to branch out. One day at the grocery store, she realized how sad it was that people don’t talk to each other anymore — and decided to create a simple conversation piece. Her cloth “Status” grocery bags range in price from $2.99 to $18, and say things such as “Single Girl Groceries,” “Single Guy Groceries,” “Hitched” and “Connected.”

“I still believe in him,” she said.

Osama Bin Laden
2 May 2011 Last updated at 08:43 ET
 

The BBC’s Adam Brookes: US intelligence analysts believed the compound was “the sort of place that you might try to hide”

Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden has been killed by US forces in Pakistan, President Barack Obama has said.

Bin Laden was killed in a ground operation outside Islamabad based on US intelligence, the first lead for which emerged last August.

Mr Obama said after “a firefight”, US forces took possession of the body.

Bin Laden is believed to be the mastermind of the attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September 2001 and a number of others.

He was top of the US’ “most wanted” list.

Mr Obama said it was “the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat al-Qaeda”.

The US has put its embassies around the world on alert, warning Americans of the possibility of al-Qaeda reprisal attacks for Bin Laden’s killing.

At the scene

Aleem Maqbool BBC News, Abbottabad

So the trail led here, to the lush green hills of Abbottabad, a beautiful tranquil location. But footage from inside the large modern compound tells of the bloody fire fight that left the al- Qaeda leader dead.

A large area around the site has now been cordoned off but there’s no concealing the fact it lies so close to the main gate of the Pakistan military academy. While residents of the area say they are stunned Osama Bin Laden was living in their midst and that there had been no rumours that he was, it will surprise many that he had been in a large building with high walls so close to an army base without the knowledge of the Pakistani security forces.

The authorities here in a statement have been hailing this as a moment of huge victory. But the amount of time it took for them to react indicates the news had surprised them as much as it had everyone else.

Crowds gathered outside the White House in Washington DC, chanting “USA, USA” after the news emerged.

A US official quoted by Associated Press news agency said Bin Laden’s body had been buried at sea, although this has not been confirmed.

Compound raidedBin Laden had approved the 9/11 attacks in which nearly 3,000 people died.

He evaded the forces of the US and its allies for almost a decade, despite a $25m (£15m) bounty on his head.

Mr Obama said he had been briefed last August on a possible lead to Bin Laden’s whereabouts.

“It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground,” Mr Obama said.

“I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located Bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan.

“And finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and authorised an operation to get Osama Bin Laden and bring him to justice,” the president said.

On Sunday, US forces said to be from the elite Navy Seal Team Six undertook the operation in Abbottabad, 100km (62 miles) north-east of Islamabad.

After a “firefight”, Bin Laden was killed and his body taken by US forces, the president said.

Mr Obama said “no Americans were harmed”.

US officials said Bin Laden was shot in the head after resisting.

US media reports said that the body was buried at sea to conform with Islamic practice of a burial within 24 hours and to prevent any grave becoming a shrine.

Giving more details of the raid, one senior US official said a small US team had conducted the attack in about 40 minutes.

Three other men were killed in the raid – one of Bin Laden’s sons and two couriers – the official said, adding that one woman was also killed when she was used as “a shield” and two other women were injured.

One helicopter was lost due to “technical failure”. The team destroyed it and left in its other aircraft.

One resident, Nasir Khan, told Reuters the helicopters had come under “intense firing” from the ground.

The size and complexity of the structure in Abbottabad had “shocked” US officials.

It had 4m-6m (12ft-18ft) walls, was eight times larger than other homes in the area and was valued at “a million dollars”, though it had no telephone or internet connection.

The US official said that intelligence had been tracking a “trusted courier” of Bin Laden for many years. The courier’s identity was discovered four years ago, his area of operation two years ago and then, last August, his residence in Abbottabad was found, triggering the start of the mission.

Another senior US official said that no intelligence had been shared with any country, including Pakistan, ahead of the raid.

map of area

“Only a very small group of people inside our own government knew of this operation in advance,” the official said.

The Abbottabad residence is just a few hundred metres from the Pakistan Military Academy – the country’s equivalent of West Point.

The BBC’s Aleem Maqbool in Abbottabad says it will undoubtedly be a huge embarrassment to Pakistan that Bin Laden was found not only in the country but also on the doorstep of the military academy.

He says residents in the town were stunned the al-Qaeda leader was living in their midst.

The senior US official warned that the possibility of revenge attacks had now created “a heightened threat to the homeland and to US citizens and facilities abroad”.

But the official added that “the loss of Bin Laden puts the group on a path of decline that will be difficult to reverse”.

He said Bin Laden’s probable successor, Ayman al-Zawahiri, was “far less charismatic and not as well respected within the organisation”, according to reports from captured al-Qaeda operatives.

However, the root causes of radical Islam – the range of issues that enabled al-Qaeda to recruit disaffected young Muslims to its cause – remain, for the most part, unaddressed, Islamic affairs analyst Roger Hardy told the BBC.

“The death of Bin Laden will strike at the morale of the global jihad, but is unlikely to end it,” he warned.

‘Momentous achievement’World leaders welcomed the news of Bin Laden’s death.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Bin Laden had “paid for his actions”.

Pakistani PM Yusuf Raza Gilani said the killing was a “great victory” but added that he “didn’t know the details” of the US operation.

Former US President George W Bush described the news as a “momentous achievement”.

“The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done,” Mr Bush said in a statement.

But a spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban threatened revenge attacks against the “American and Pakistani governments and their security forces”.

In Gaza, which is governed by militant group Hamas, Prime Minister Ismail Haniya condemned the killing of “a Muslim and Arabic warrior”.

BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner says that, to many in the West, Bin Laden became the embodiment of global terrorism, but to others he was a hero, a devout Muslim who fought two world superpowers in the name of jihad.

The son of a wealthy Saudi construction family, Bin Laden grew up in a privileged world. But soon after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan he joined the mujahideen there and fought alongside them with his Arab followers, a group that later formed the nucleus for al-Qaeda.

After declaring war on America in 1998, Bin Laden is widely believed to have been behind the bombings of US embassies in East Africa, the attack on the USS Cole in Yemen in 2000 and the attacks on New York and Washington.

Graphic: The world's most dangerous border

November 29, 2010 2:39 a.m. EST

Joint military exercises between South Korea and the United States continued in the Yellow Sea on Monday as tensions with nearby North Korea continue to brew.

On Monday, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said South Korea will “firmly” respond to future provocations from North Korea and declared that his nation “cannot remain patient” in the face of continued hostility from Pyongyang.

“Fellow citizens, at this point, actions are more important than words,” Lee said in a televised address. “Please have trust in the government and the military and support us.”

The divided peninsula — tense at the best of times — has been near the boiling point since Tuesday, when four people died in a North Korean artillery barrage that targeted the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong.

Lee called that attack an “inhuman crime” that followed decades of previous attacks from North Korea, including the sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan in March.

North Korea has consistently denied responsibility for the sinking of the Cheonan, which killed 46 South Korean sailors.

“It is difficult at this point to expect North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons or military adventurism,” Lee said. “We are now clearly aware that we cannot stay patient and be generous. That will only give rise to bigger provocations.”

Lee’s address came a day after South Korean and U.S. forces started joint military exercises Sunday, prompting a furious response from North Korea.

The aircraft carrier USS George Washington joined South Korea’s forces near the coasts of China and North Korea for the four-day drill, which the North called “no more than an attempt to find a pretext for aggression and ignite a war at any cost,” according to the official Korean Central News Agency.

China, North Korea’s closest ally, called Sunday for an emergency meeting of the six major powers involved in talks about the Korean peninsula.

Top diplomats from the six nations — which also include Japan, the United States and Russia — need to meet soon to “maintain peace and stability on the peninsula and ease the tension” in the region, Beijing’s special representative for the region, Wu Dawei, said Sunday.

A top Chinese envoy met with Lee on Sunday, and a high-ranking North Korean official will visit Beijing on Tuesday, China’s Xinhua news agency said.

South Korea said Sunday it did not think the time was right for a resumption of the six-party talks, but said it would “bear in mind” the Chinese proposal.

In Washington, meanwhile, a State Department official told CNN that the United States is consulting with its allies, but resumed six-party talks “cannot substitute for action by North Korea to comply with its obligations.”

“Clear steps by North Korea are needed to demonstrate a change of behavior,” said the official, who was not authorized to speak for attribution.

And U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday that the flare-up exposed the failure of “continued appeasement” of North Korea by Republican and Democratic administrations.

He said the United States has given North Korea more than $1 billion in aid over the past 15 years with the goal of getting them to the negotiating table.

“It seems the purpose of everything is to get the North Koreans to the table,” said McCain, the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee. “The North Koreans’ only claim to their position on the world stage is their nuclear capability. And they have a terrible, most repressive, oppressive regime in the world. They have hundreds of thousands of people in slave labor camps. And all of that seems to be sacrificed in the altar of, quote, ‘negotiations.'”

Meanwhile, the Washington-based ANSWER Coalition called for “an end to the U.S.-South Korean provocations” and announced rallies in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, California, on Monday.

“The United States and South Korean governments have been pursuing a policy of deliberate provocation over the past several months,” targeting North Korea and China, ANSWER’s website states.

“While hypocritically calling for ‘calm’ in words, Washington is escalating the crisis by its actions,” it said, referring to the U.S.-South Korea military exercises and the USS George Washington.

In his Monday speech, South Korea’s Lee said efforts to resolve the international standoff through negotiations and humanitarian assistance to the North were met with “nuclear development and the sinking of the Cheonan.”

He said the attack on Yeonpyeong Island would have been unlawful even in wartime, adding, “I cannot but be angered at their cruelty.”

North Korea said the South provoked the attack because shells from a South Korean millitary drill landed in the North’s waters.

The North called reports of civilian casualties part of South Korea’s “propaganda campaign” and accused the “enemy” of creating “a human shield by deploying civilians around artillery positions and inside military facilities before the launch of the provocation.”

The violence has sparked anger and political turmoil in South Korea.

The country’s defense minister, Kim Tae-young, resigned after the exchange of fire.

Veterans of the South Korean military protested over the weekend on the streets of Seoul, stating they were angry that their country’s government had not done enough to respond to the North’s shelling.

The tense maritime border between the two Koreas has become the major military flashpoint on the Korean peninsula in recent years.

The Yeonpyeong attack was the first direct artillery assault on South Korea since 1953, when an armistice ended fighting. North and South Korea are still technically at war.

Dr. Donald Berwick
Wednesday, July 7th 2010, 1:04 PM

President Obama Wednesday bypassed the Senate and announced the recess appointment Dr. Donald Berwick to be the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The move drew fire from Republicans who had planned to fight his nomination. Obama said the job had to be filled.

“It’s unfortunate that at a time when our nation is facing enormous challenges, many in Congress have decided to delay critical nominations for political purposes,” Obama said.

The New York-born pediatrician is clinical professor of pediatrics and health care policy in the Department of Pediatrics at the Harvard Medical School. He is well regarded by medical groups, but conservatives say his views are “radical.”

Under the recess appointment, Berwick will avoid the Senate nomination process and he will serve until the end of the year, when the congressional term expires.

“Democrats held no hearing, allowed no public testimony, and called no votes on this nomination,” said Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-Ga.).

“In short, they did everything to hide Dr. Berwick’s radical views and made absolutely no effort to follow the regular, established process for confirming a presidential nomination. Clearly, they did not want Berwick’s adamant support for rationing health care debated in the light of day.”

Berwick supporters scoffed at GOP complaints and accused them of stonewalling.

“Republican lockstep stalling of Don’s nomination was a case study in cynicism and one awful example of how not to govern,” said Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.). “Republicans screamed that these federal programs were in trouble, then tried to deny the Administration the capable guy the President had chosen to oversee them.”

Gen. Stanley McChrystal‘s rocky term as the Afghan war commander ended in disgrace Wednesday and President Obama named Gen. David Petraeus to replace him.In a Rose Garden address, Obama said he was sacking McChrystal “with considerable regret but also with the certainty it is the right thing to do.”

While professing admiration for McChrystal, Obama said that the general’s trash-talking of the chain of command “does not meet the standard that should be met by a commanding general.”

McChrystal’s resignation had been expected after his blatant show of disloyalty in mocking the civilian leadership in a Rolling Stone magazine article.

But the appointment of Petraeus, McChrystal’s mentor and biggest cheerleader, to lead U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan was stunning. It indicated that Obama was wary of the political backlash from showing McChrystal the door.

Petraeus’ sky-high reputation as architect of the successful Iraq surge could blunt any criticism from McChrystal loyalists in the ranks and on Capitol Hill.

At a closed Oval Office sitdown, McChrystal lost the highest-profile command in the military, and his stellar Army career, in a 30-minute faceoff with Obama.

In an earlier final show of bravado, McChrystal stepped lively, as always, from a black limo that pulled up to Pentagon, where he got a preliminary dressing down from Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs.
McChrystal, smartly decked out in Army dress greens, shrugged off a shouted question on whether he had submitted resignation papers in advance. “C’mon, you know better than that. No,” McChrystal said.

McChrystal, accompanied by three paper-shuffling aides, went directly from the Pentagon to the White House, this time in a green SUV that remained in the side driveway between the White House and the Executive Office Building.

After the meeting, the poker-faced McChrystal, now jobless, hustled back into the SUV which drove off to parts unknown.

He would not return, as originally scheduled, for the White House meeting in the Situation Room on the progress of the Afghan war, where he would have faced several of the civilian leaders he dissed in the Rolling Stone article.

McChrystal’s SUV had to pause briefly before driving off. A sweaty middle-aged guy in a white shirt and tie, his suitcoat draped over his left shoulder in the muggy 95-degree heat of a D.C. June, trudged wearily past the front bumper dragging a roller suitcase, oblivious to the high drama going on behind him.

In Afghanistan, where at least three more U.S. troops were killed today, the reaction to McChrystal’s sacking was brutal and telling from some of the young troops he commanded, even before the announcement was official.

The Stars and Stripes reported that a young officer in a combat outpost shouted in glee that “Hey, McChrystal might get fired.”

Other officers joked and cheered over the demise of the the commander they blamed for getting buddies killed through restrictive “Rules of Engagement” on how they could fight, the newspaper said.

When told that McChrystal might be gone, one soldier said “Good. That man and his (Rules) have got to go.” Another soldier lit a cigar to celebrate.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai was among the few left in McChrystal’s corner after the stunning article in which the general and his adoring aides, who called themselves “Team America,” mocked just about everyone in the administration’s senior strategy team for Afghanistan.

Karzai spokesman Waheed Omar said “We hope there is not a change of leadership of the international forces here in Afghanistan and that we continue to partner with Gen. McChrystal.”

The president already ordered the general to the White House to explain.

But this does present Obama with a challenge not unlike the one President Truman faced with Gen. Douglas MacArthur. If Obama fires him, it would be an unpopular move. McChrystal is a good, tough general. If he doesn’t fire him, he will look weak.

Consider, too, that McChrystal is trying to fight a war under difficult conditions, including a deadline the president has imposed to pull out by July 2011.

What should he do?

Me? I would fire him. We have a civilian government and generals have to be loyal to the commander, especially during war-time.

President Barack Obama introduces Solicitor General Elena Kagan as his choice for Supreme Court Justice in Washington, Monday May 10, 2010 as Vice President Joe Biden applauds. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Monday, 10 May 2010 05:28 UK

US President Barack Obama will nominate Solicitor-General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, US media reports say.

The White House has not yet commented, but Mr Obama is scheduled to announce his choice at 1000 (1400 GMT).

If confirmed, she would be the youngest member and the third woman on the court as well as the first justice in nearly four decades not to have been a judge.

The 50-year-old former dean of Harvard Law School has spent much of her professional life in academia.

Early in her career she was a clerk for a US Court of Appeals judge and later for former Justice Thurgood Marshall. And like Mr Obama, she worked on the prestigious Harvard Law Review as a student.

The president was forced to choose a nominee due to the retirement of one of the Supreme Court’s leading liberals, John Paul Stevens.

Non-ideological writings

The BBC’s Richard Lister in Washington says that as solicitor-general, Ms Kagan is already well known and she went through a fairly smooth confirmation process in the Senate for her current job this year.

There had been speculation for some time that she was Mr Obama’s preferred choice and her appointment would maintain the current political balance of the Supreme Court, he says.

Although regarded as a liberal on most issues, she has worked with conservatives and has even attracted a liberal backlash against her support for continuing Bush administration policies on state secrets and the use of military commissions to try terrorism suspects, our correspondent adds.

Her staunch advocacy of gay rights may concern Republicans, who have also expressed concerns about her lack of judicial experience. She would also be questioned as to whether she was qualified.

Ms Kagan’s academic writings are largely non-ideological, and she would have no paper trail of judicial opinions available for scrutiny.

With 59 votes, Senate Democrats would have enough to confirm her, but they would be one short of being able to halt blocking or stalling tactics by any Republican senators. When she was confirmed as solicitor-general, only seven Republicans backed her.

Our correspondent says that selection of a Supreme Court justice gives a president the opportunity to influence US public life for decades, as the justices are not bound by term limits.

Nearly 50 miles offshore at the big oil rig floating on a glassy-calm sea, a helicopter landed early on the morning of April 20, carrying four executives from BP, the oil company. The men were visiting the Deepwater Horizon to help honor the crew for its standout safety record.

The rig workers were buzzing for another reason. They were nearly done with the latest job. It had been a little tricky, but it was nothing they could not handle.

As night fell, Micah Joseph Sandell, 40, was in the small cab of his crane, three stories above the bustling deck. Two floors down from the helipad, men in red coveralls waited for dinner in a hall lined with gold safety plaques. Eugene Dewayne Moss, a 37-year-old crane operator, realized he needed to tear himself away from a movie to get ready for his overnight shift.

“I thought, Oh man, I’ve got to go,” Mr. Moss recalled. “I got up, turned my TV off.”

Seconds later, a thundering explosion rocked the rig, the beginning of a terrifying night for the men who would survive one of the most harrowing disasters in the history of the oil business.

All over the ship, men snapped into action. Sleeping workers leapt from their beds. Then came a second explosion, even louder than the first. They later struggled to describe it — a tornado of fire, a nuclear bomb, a jet engine exploding. But a half-dozen rig workers interviewed this week all agreed on one thing, recalling that moment: “We all were sure we were going to die,” said Dennis Dewayne Martinez, 30, a supervisor on the rig.

The Deepwater Horizon was one of the most sophisticated drilling rigs on the planet.

Commissioned in 2001, the ship, 396 feet from stem to stern, could park in the water, lock onto satellites to measure an exact position and shoot water out of a series of thrusters to maintain that position. Even with waves crashing against the keel, the rig could steady itself for the precision work of sending drill pipes more than six miles down, dead straight, through the ocean floor and deep into the earth’s crust.

Only the year before, the Horizon had set a world record by punching through 35,000 feet of water and rock — nearly seven miles — in the Gulf of Mexico, creating a well called Tiber for BP, the oil giant once known as British Petroleum.

This time, the Horizon was drilling an exploratory well about 47 miles off the Louisiana coast, in a stretch of the sea floor known as Mississippi Canyon Block 252. BP and some partners had paid the federal government $34 million for the lease, and the Horizon crew had celebrated when they found oil there.

But the Horizon was a drill ship, not a production vessel, so the workers had been told to cap the well for later use and move on to the next job.

Up on the bridge that April night, the officers were keeping close watch on the Damon B. Bankston, a 260-foot cargo ship that was pumping special drilling mud through a hose from the rig.

The job of sinking the well had gone relatively smoothly — extending the well, pipe by pipe, until it punched through to the oil below. Then the crew shoved a final long stretch of pipe deep into the reservoir.

Trouble With Gas Buildup

As the job unfolded, however, the workers did have intermittent trouble with pockets of natural gas. Highly flammable, the gas was forcing its way up the drilling pipes.

This was something BP had not foreseen as a serious problem, declaring a year earlier that gas was likely to pose only a “negligible” risk. The government warned the company that gas buildup was a real concern and that BP should “exercise caution.”

At one point during the previous several weeks, so much of it came belching up to the surface that a loudspeaker announcement called for a halt to all “hot work,” meaning any smoking, welding, cooking or any other use of fire. Smaller belches, or “kicks,” had stalled work as the job was winding down.

By mid-April, the crew was in the mop-up stages of the operation. The day before the blast, workers from Halliburton, the oil services contractor, had finished one of the trickiest tasks in building a well: encasing it in cement, with a temporary plug of cement near the bottom of the pipe to seal the well.

The Halliburton workers used a less common technique for the cement, whipping nitrogen gas into it to create a kind of mousse. This type of cement, if used correctly, forms a tighter seal, but it is trickier to handle.

Still, all in all, it had been a pretty routine job for the Horizon.

“Almost there,” said one supervisor as he left the 11 a.m. daily meeting on April 20. “We’re almost done, baby!”

Some of the men had heard they might even get a bonus for finishing ahead of deadline.

Explosive Fury

It happened so fast.

Just before 10 p.m., the crew was using seawater to flush drilling mud out of the pipes. Suddenly, with explosive fury, water and mud came hurtling up the pipes and onto the deck, followed by the ominous hiss of natural gas. In seconds, it touched some spark or flame.

“I took off running,” Mr. Sandell said. “How, I can’t tell you.”

He joined the other men in a sprint to the two lifeboats on the rig’s bow. Men were climbing over one another to get inside the covered lifeboats, which look like capsules and can hold up to 50 men each.

The assistant driller who was supposed to take muster — or roll call — panicked. Instead, he handed Mr. Martinez the clipboard before climbing into a lifeboat.

“Hurry up!” the men already in the boats screamed. “Lower the lifeboat!”

Mr. Martinez said they needed to wait for others. The men in the boats yelled that there was no more time — the 242-foot steel tower in the center of the rig was engulfed in flames. They were certain it was going to fall their way.

In one lifeboat, a worker lay on the deck, trying to stanch the blood flowing from a deep gash in his neck. Others tried to rub the insulation from their eyes, after the walls of their cabins collapsed. Still others were caked in the clay-brown mud that had shot out of the well after the first explosion.

Most of the men had on bright orange life jackets. Some men, having been thrown from their bunks, wore little else.

Not everyone could get to the boats. Through a porthole, Mr. Moss watched as some co-workers — black silhouettes against the flames — jumped from the rig. “You can’t see them good enough to tell if they had life jackets on or anything,” he said.

Within 10 minutes, the two lifeboats closed their doors and dropped about 100 feet down to the water below.

A small boat was nearby. Albert Andry III, a recreational fisherman, and his buddies were bobbing near the rig, trying to catch the fish that schooled near it.

When Mr. Andry — who was contacted by a reporter after he posted an account of his experience on the Internet — noticed water gushing from the center of the rig, one of his friends, who had worked on rigs, knew something was wrong.

“Go! Go! Go! Go! Gooooo!” the friend yelled. Mr. Andry opened his throttle wide, covering 100 yards or so before the rig exploded.

“The rig blew a few more explosions after that and began to burn down,” he wrote later on a Web message board, where he also posted photos and videos of the scene. “Some of the rig began dripping into the water and the platform tilted in and turned RED HOT.”

From their lifeboats, the Horizon crew radioed for help. The Bankston, the cargo boat that was attached to the rig when the blowout began, had managed to pull away, and now the captain was pulling survivors off the lifeboats.

Frantic emergency calls summoned planes, helicopters and Coast Guard fireboats to the stricken rig.

Radio Silence

On the Bankston, the men cried. They prayed. Nobody talked much as they watched the orange tongues of flame from the Horizon lick the sky, reflecting off the still water.

The men were kept aboard the rescue ship, in the middle of the ocean, for a full 12 hours. Worse than the wait, they said, was being forbidden to call their families. The men were told that the Coast Guard wanted to conduct interviews before the workers spoke to family or anyone else.

Rumors spread that the BP executives who had visited the rig were up on the Bankston’s bridge using the ship’s radio or a satellite phone to call home.

Helicopters thwocked overhead. Boats darted around the rig searching for survivors. Word soon came that 11 were missing. (Of the 126 on board at the time of the disaster, 115 survived, of whom 17 were injured.)

As he watched the hulking rig, his home for much of the past eight years, slowly tilt and falter, Mr. Martinez thought about his father’s ring. The only time he ever took the ring off was when he was working. It was now headed to the bottom of the sea.

“I lost my daddy when I was 23, he was 46,” he said.

Another worker, startled by a memory, jammed his hand into his pocket. He pulled out a small photograph of his son. He caught his breath, stared at it, then exhaled.

Finally, the Bankston started its 12-hour journey back to shore. It stopped on the way to pick up a couple of medics from another rig. At a second stop, it picked up Coast Guard officials, who immediately began passing out forms for the men to fill out and to describe what they saw. Some were pulled aside for interviews.

Some relief arrived: blankets, and for supper, pork chops and hot dogs.

Conversation followed, but mostly they just traded questions. What could possibly have gone so horribly wrong? If the cement job worked, how had gas leaked up the pipe and sparked? Others wondered about a device on the sea floor called a blowout preventer and why it did not seem to have activated.

Pulling in to Port Fourchon, the men fell silent again.

“To me it all felt like a nightmare,” Mr. Sandell said. “And I still wasn’t sure if I was awake.”

As he and others climbed off the Bankston, they were greeted by several Coast Guard and company officials sitting around a table stacked with forms.

Behind the table was a row of portable toilets. And as the crew members approached, each was handed a cup for a mandatory drug test. The search for an explanation would begin with them. That search continues.

President Barack Obama’s doctor says the commander in chief’s first medical checkup since he took office finds the 48-year-old is in “excellent health” and is “fit for duty.”

The physician, Navy Capt. Jeffrey Kuhlman, says he saw nothing in his examination of the president on Sunday that would prevent Obama from fulfilling his term as president.

A federal immigration judge will decide Thursday whether President Obama’s aunt, who has been in the United States illegally for years, will be allowed to stay.

Zeituni Onyango, 57, applied for political asylum in 2002, citing violence in her native Kenya. She is the half-sister of the president’s late father.

Onyango was a legal resident of the United States at the time and had received a Social Security card a year earlier.

But her asylum request was turned down in 2004. She appealed and was ordered to leave, but has lived in the United States illegally since then.

Judge Leonard Shapiro opened a hearing on Onyango’s asylum request Thursday morning in Boston, Massachusetts.

Her immigration status came to light in the final days of the 2008 presidential race.

Obama has not weighed in on the case, with the White House saying “the president believes that the case should run its ordinary course.”

Obama Pitches Aid for Struggling Small Businesses

President Barack Obama’s bid to sell his economic agenda and re-energize voters picks up in politically significant New Hampshire, where he will again promote an idea to free up money for small businesses that are hurting.

Obama travels to Nashua, N.H., on Tuesday to draw attention to a proposal highlighted in his State of the Union address last week: funneling $30 billion to local banks so they can lend small businesses money they need to grow their enterprises and create jobs.

“Jobs will be our No. 1 focus in 2010,” Obama said in excerpts of his prepared remarks, which the White House released early. “And we’re going to start where most new jobs do — with small businesses. These are companies that begin in basements and garages when an entrepreneur takes a chance on his dream, or a worker decides it’s time she became her own boss.”

The White House rejected criticism Sunday that President Obama has not delivered on his promise of “change” during his first year in office.

White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said the president has brought about “enormous change.”

“I think what we’ve seen is a dramatic difference in terms of how the United States is perceived around the world,” Jarrett told NBC’s “Meet the Press,” on the final Sunday before the president’s State of the Union address.

Obama‘s travels have established relationships with world leaders that “lay a foundation for keeping America safe and making us a partner around the world,” she added.

Jarrett also credited the president with having “pulled back the economy from the brink of disaster.”

“That’s an enormous amount of change when you consider where we were a year ago right on the brink,” she said. “And he’s adding discipline in government to try to get control over our fiscal house. So I think that we’ve seen enormous change.”

Offering his most extensive public comments about the election debacle in Massachusetts, President Obama acknowledged that he’s taking some lumps but also trying to cast himself as a populist who will “never stop fighting” to bring health care reform and jobs to communities like this hard-hit manufacturing area outside Cleveland.

Now, we’ve gotten pretty far down the road, but I have to admit, we’ve run into a bit of a buzzsaw along the way,” Obama said. “The long process of getting things done runs headlong into the special interests, their armies of lobbyists and partisan politics aimed at exploiting fears instead of getting things done.”

Obama added, “I am not going to walk away just because it’s hard. We’re going to keep on working to get this done with Democrats, Republicans, anyone who is willing to step up.
