In Case You Missed It Dept.:
During a speech in Cleveland, President Obama suggested that voting should be mandatory or people should face fines for not doing it. Let me make a counter-suggestion: the Stupid Ideas Tax.
Secretary of State John Kerry compared himself to Lincoln, Churchill, MLK, Gandhi, and Mandela for addressing the “threat” of climate change. Sorry, John. At best, maybe Al Roker.
On Twitter, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz asked “which is your favorite Democrat policy?” I’m not picky. Whichever one they can talk about without pleading the fifth.
An Iranian military textbook discusses a nuclear EMP attack on America in 20 different places. Probably just a typo. I’m sure they meant a PEACEFUL nuclear EMP attack.
Commenting on his Iran nuclear negotiations, President Obama said “we have to speak up for the future we seek”. Speak loud. Atomic explosions are kinda noisy.
In an interview with Huffington Post, President Obama said that, if necessary, he’d work around Congress “by hook or by crook”. It’s not the hooks I’m worried about…

President Obama spoke with Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday and the Israeli prime minister said that Israel is willing to negotiate with the Palestinian Authority as long as they don’t represent Hamas. Hamas leaders say they don’t recognize Israel. Of course they don’t recognize it, they keep blowing it up.
President Obama reportedly chose Chicago as the future site of his presidential library. The city can’t help but love him. Obama was awarded the Order of the Cubs last week when he completed an unassisted triple play in becoming the only president ever to lose the House, the Senate and the Knesset.
A Hillary Clinton for President group posted a video featuring a doll-head image of Bill Clinton in a red dress and heels urging you to vote for Bill for First Lady. Comedians can only dream. For eight years the United States had a president who thought that safe sex meant that Hillary was overseas.
GOP Senator Ted Cruz announced he’s running for president Monday. He was born in Canada to a Cuban father and to an Anglo-Saxon mother. Democrats fell over laughing at the idea that Americans would elect a bi-racial senator with a Harvard law degree who was born in another country.
President Obama played host to high school science students from across America at the annual White House National Science Fair on Monday afternoon. The president surveyed some projects that are silly and would never work. And after he left his foreign policy meeting, it was on to the kids’ work.
CBS Sports enjoyed big ratings for the NCAA tournament this weekend as March Madness took hold. President Obama filled out his tournament bracket card on ESPN, just as he does every year, but this time it caused concerns. He picked Israel to lose in the first round of the Middle East Regionals.
GOP Senator Ted Cruz announced he’s running for president, sending Democrats scrambling to their battle stations. Cruz is a bi-racial U.S. senator with a Harvard law degree who was born in a foreign country. So for the second time in eight years, Democrats have an alternative to Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton appeared at a forum in Washington sponsored by the liberal-leaning Center for American Progress Monday where she spoke about the problem of income inequality. She gets three hundred grand per speech. Democrats believe it’s okay to be rich as long as you just feel awful about it.
Israel spied on the U.S.-Iran nuclear talks and gave the intel to House Republicans. The White House learned of Israel’s spying on the U.S.-Iran talks by spying on Israel. The White House wouldn’t spy on Israel but they’re registered as a conservative non-profit so the NSA and IRS are all over them.
The U.S. Army announced it will charge U.S. Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl with desertion despite the White House calling him a hero last May. The Obama administration traded five Taliban leaders in exchange for him. The government can’t even effect a prisoner swap without running up an eighty percent deficit.
The White House announced Wednesday that President Obama cleared his schedule in order to have lunch in the Oval Office with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The president’s press secretary told reporters that the lunch was very private. It was just the two of them and their food tasters.

During a recent interview, President Obama revealed that he doesn’t always get enough sleep. And I think I speak for everyone when I say, “Good! We pay you to worry about stuff so WE can sleep. That’s why you are the president.”

President Obama and Hillary Clinton had lunch today. Of course, Hillary had a private server.
