Mark Knoller recounts president’s year on the links

Before jumping on CBS News’ Mark Knoller for trying to embarrass the president by reporting how many times he hit the golf course this year, keep in mind that Washington’s unofficial statistician has kept track of all sorts of White House activities.

It’s amazing that the president found time to golf at all, but he did. This summer, he even took the rare step of inviting along three Democrat holdouts from Congresswhose votes he needed to secure the Iran nuclear deal.

It would be nice if the president’s head-clearing rounds weren’t quite so pricey. Investor’s Business Daily reportedthat a weekend golf trip to Palm Springs in February cost$1.03 million, while flight costs for a long golf weekend with friends in Palm City, Fla., in March ran$805,000, or$20,406 per hole.

Boston Strong: Cleveland Indians host Red Sox, hold moment of silence [photos]


Fenway Park favorite “Sweet Caroline” greeted the Boston Red Sox tonight as they warmed up for their game against the Cleveland Indians at Cleveland’s Progressive Field. The teams paused for a somber moment of silence before getting back to something resembling business as usual.

Owner of Las Vegas’ Retro Bakery blasts Common Core math


Kari Haskell, co-owner of a successful bakery in Las Vegas, is known as the “queen of buttercream.” In addition to running her business, Kari is a parent. Yesterday, she posted a Common Core multiplication problem that made her head hurt:

We sympathize, and we’re not the only ones. Here’s a sampling of comments on Kari’s Instagram post:

I’m a teacher and I can tell you- common core sucks.

* * *

This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen. Common core isn’t “approved” in my state yet but our schools are already adding it into the curriculum. The math “shortcuts” make my head spin.

* * *

Not enough cupcakes to make sense out of the common core!

* * *

I so wish we didn’t have common core here in Nevada!!!

* * *

I told my son’s teacher to shove his homework the other day because of this bull!

* * *

Common core SUCKS. I refuse to teach my children that way.

* * *

Common core is the devil

* * *

What was wrong with the old way? Oy vey

Nothing was wrong with the old way. It’s time to get back to retro math, along with some of Kari’s delicious-looking retro cupcakes.

Bears sign Michael Bush


Michael Bush scheduled to receive $7M guaranteed from Bears. Matt Forte scheduled to receive $7.7M guaranteed from Bears…for now.

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) March 22, 2012

Even though he has been the biggest part of their offense for quite sometime, Chicago Bears’ management and coaching has never loved running back Matt Forte. They continued to prove that on Thursday by signing former Raider, Michael Bush.

Bush is a punishing back and combined with Forte, the Bears running game has to be one of the most dangerous in the NFL.

With that said we can’t imagine how Forte must have felt when he first heard the news, especially when the team is unable to give him the contract he deserves.

So the Bears won't pay Forte but they'll give Michael Bush $14 million over 4 years? I'm confused. @GenoMrosko @lelandroling

— Sarcastic Prick (@RlCHIE) March 22, 2012

Michael Bush will be solid investment for #Bears in event long-term deal doesn't materialize for Matt Forte.

— Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) March 22, 2012

Michael Bush to the Bears? I just threw up in my mouth. This hurts him AND Matt Forte. Awful. Just awful.

— Jamey Eisenberg (@JameyEisenberg) March 22, 2012

Michael Bush to the Bears? Looks like Chicago is handling business!

— Bethany Lamar (@bettelamar) March 22, 2012

The Bears picked up Michael Bush, huh? Damn good signing right there. Chicago making moves.

— Michael Smith (@michaelsmith) March 22, 2012

Gotta love the #Bears signing Michael Bush. Phil Emery just pushed Marion Barber out of bounds. #NFL

— Silvy (@WaddleandSilvy) March 22, 2012

"Forte" means 'Michael Bush got my money' in French.

— Paul Pabst (@PaulPabst) March 22, 2012

another solid move from emery to bring in michael bush. gives the #bears leverage with forte and a legit fall back should he hold out.

— dan durkin (@djdurkin) March 22, 2012

Da Bears sign Michael Bush, get Brandon Marshall via trade, healthy Forte & Cutler, Hester, Knox. Good defense. Team is dangerous.

Stompy foot in chief and friends desperately try to walk back admission of failure


After President Obama’s colossal gaffe today in which he admitted that the “change” portion of Hopeandchange ™ is a total sham, his crackerjack team of excuse-mongers and sycophants is working overtime to do damage control. Still smarting from Mitt Romney’s Twitter glove-slap, Team Obama went after Romney in the best way they know how: shamelessly.

They still haven’t gotten over Obama’s “you didn’t build that” comments being put exactly into the context they deserved. Awwww … poor babies.

The ironically-named Truth Team went to bat for their boss as well, collecting a few of Obama’s pearly pearls of wisdom:

Obama’s #WomenEconForum speech doesn’t impress women on Twitter


As Twitchy reported earlier, the White House hosted the Forum on Women and the Economy today, which kicked off with predictable talking points and lame attempts at rah-rah sisterhood pandering. Wait, there’s pandering going on? Enter the Panderer-In-Chief!

Happening now: President Obama speaks at the #WomenEconForum. Watch live: http://t.co/g5ih2w0F

— White House Live (@WHLive) April 6, 2012

As always, Obama proceeded to use women as pawns. Funnily enough, some women don’t cotton to shamefully being used and treated like helpless little victims. You know, the kind of woman who wasn’t invited to the Forum, likely because they are too busy actually doing and not just whining. They made good use of the official hashtag, #WomenEconForum, to let President Obama know they were not impressed with his speech nor his actions.

RT @TeriChristoph: #WomenEconForum: Obama is Emasculated Man in Chief.

— Liz sans soul (@GoldwaterGal) April 6, 2012

No, Mr. Obama, what is clear to me, is that you will use women to advance your political agenda. Period. #WomenEconForum

— Sheryl (@sav01) April 6, 2012

Barack should just pat them all on the head now and thank them for being willing campaign props. #WomenEconForum

— Karen Townsend (@penguinponders) April 6, 2012


President Obama had the audacity (not of hope) to say that “women are not an interest group. You shouldn’t be treated that way.” This from a man who treats women only as an interest group! Then he went on to blather about ‘personal stories’ (all about HIM) and encouraging adults to mooch off of their parents’ insurance policies as if that were a good thing. He threw in some attempts to further the “wage gap” myth as well. Women were again not impressed.

She must be one of those ‘not authentic’ women, so her experiences don’t count.

Even some in the media had to report on what a dog and pony show it was.

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) April 6, 2012

Not a forum, not about women (except so far as Obama can use them) and not about the economy. A campaign rally for President Obama, on our dime and at our expense. And the conservative women of twitter saw right through it.

Did he or didn’t he? Trump responds to question about Comey memo allegation

At this afternoon’s joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Donald Trump was asked if he’d ever asked former FBI Director James Comey to shut down his investigation into Mike Flynn. Trump’s answer was pretty unequivocal:
