http://twitter.com/#!/KellyO/status/420725764037042176 Don’t get too excited, but the White House has decided to allow still photographs of tomorrow’s weekly lunch between President Obama and Vice President Biden. http://twitter.com/#!/markknoller/status/420718397442121729 This is a rare move by the White House, which has certainly been less than transparent. Could it have something to do with former Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ […]

http://twitter.com/#!/onlinemajority/status/516699818903609344 State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf appeared on CNN with Wolf Blitzer Monday afternoon, most likely to help clean up some of the messier statements from President Obama’s “60 Minutes” interview the evening before — for example, the claim that “we” underestimated the growing threat posed by ISIS. @marieharf @wolfblitzer The President badly misspoke.

http://twitter.com/#!/SundevilSal/status/436524466311426048 President Obama “strongly condemns” the “unacceptable violence” in Ukraine, but he hasn’t really said much about what’s happening in Venezuela. Unlike Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who’s actually doing something about it. Just look: http://twitter.com/#!/DWStweets/status/436523922390261760 OK, well, at least she seems to be aware of the deadly violence in Venezuela. Maybe she could pass the […]

No wonder Emma Wo, winner of the Miss Hawaii Teen USA competition in 2008, wasn’t showing much love for Hawaii’s most famous native son as he kicked off his vacay with a trip to a basketball game. She wasn’t the only one: http://twitter.com/#!/lemondedenani/status/414985226750672896 […]
