Weekly Wrap-Up

Big Bird, Big Bird, Big Bird… who could have imagined that the star of Sesame Street would become the President’s center of attention this week?

“The Middle East is ablaze, the country drowning in debt, the fiscal cliff looming — and Obama's great pitch is that only he can save the $130 million enterprise that is the Sesame Workshop?” asks Charles Krauthammer.

Rich Lowry asks in the New York Post, “The Corporation for Public Broadcasting gets more than $400 million a year from the federal government. If this is an essential expenditure at a time of $1 trillion deficits and a $16 trillion debt, what’s nonessential?”
Even Democrats are beginning to question Obama’s obsession with Big Bird. “They worry the president looks small by enlisting the eight-foot costume bird in his defense,” according to this report – as well they should.
There were no Big Bird sightings in last night’s vice-presidential debate, but Big Biden took center stage. The verdict: Miss Manners would not be pleased.

“Abject rudeness,” reports Jennifer Rubin in the Washington Post. 

“By unofficial media counts, Mr. Biden interrupted the Republican some 80 to 100 times,” the Wall Street Journal informs us, noting that: “The carnival act contributed to the least illuminating presidential or vice presidential debate of our lifetimes.”

“Biden Bombed,” reports Fred Barnes in the Weekly Standard, adding: “You don’t win a nationally televised debate by being rude and obnoxious.”  

The Heritage Foundation skips the style analysis and offers up the facts on the issues that were on the table last night.

And about that Middle East that’s ablaze – Biden added fuel to the fire. He followed the “When all else fails, blame the intelligence community.”

He took an “ignorance is bliss” approach to the added calls for extra security before the Libya attacks. 

Through all of which the Vice-President is simply following the White House playbook: “More Benghazi Lies.”

And via Greta Van Susteren, we learn that the security threats facing America continue to grow more and more terrifying…

It all leads to one question: Do you believe that America’s citizens, cities, troops, diplomatic corps and overseas interests are in grave danger with Barack Obama at the helm?
