They just made a mistake online. Whoever runs the online edition didn't catch the mistake evidently, but it was in the right section as you mention in the print edition.
I am a sister of the bride, and this is not front page news in the regular paper that comes out. I guess they just made a mistake. I agree that this is not front page news lol but I found it in the wedding section online. After I read all of your comments I went back to the front page and saw that it was there as well.
President Obama doesn't use "teleprompters" when he is being interviewed and when he is answering questions at a press conference. He did not use a "teleprompter" when he beat John McCain in every debate that they had. The "teleprompter" smear was made up by the right wing so it is hard to take someone serious when they say don't be "partisan," but bring up the use of a teleprompter. Maybe he should use his hands eh? When a person is giving a speech it makes sense to use a teleprompter. All of the news media uses teleprompters. The difference between President Obama using an teleprompter vs others that use it, he writes many of his own speeches. His speech writers sometimes tweak his speeches or he sometimes changes what they have written. The race speech that he gave in PA during the election was written entirely by him. He authored books that weren't "ghost" written by anyone else, and won a grammy for one. So in the end the teleprompter is a non issue. Contrary to your comment, he has said many "off the cuff" things that have landed him in trouble. The reason why he uses it more often is because he gives more speeches. People love to hear him speak unlike some President's past.
Here is the video of Ryan being booed in his district. By the way there are many where this came from. http://youtu.be/h5kgnE1Xvec
Mitch McConell is not whipping the Republican caucus to vote for Ryan's plan that will come up in the Senate. As a matter of fact although he timidly suggested he may vote for it he also declared that "neither the President's budget nor the Ryan" budget will become law. The Senate vote on Ryan's plan will come up in the Senate this week. Let's wait and see how many Republicans actually vote against it. Republicans are facing backlash over the Ryan's budget in their districts, which is why they have resorted to putting up signs reading "no recording devices" allowed, unlike when they happily embraced the outcry against "Obamacare" as they labeled it. Paul Ryan had to go out of an alternate exit in his own district due to his constituents anger over the fact that his plan includes tax cuts for the rich on the backs of the middle class. When asked what will happen to Seniors if their vouchers ran out due to being in a nursing home Micheal Steele responded "no one knows." Newt Gingrich just said publicly what many Republicans are saying privately.
The President's speech to the AIPAC can be found here. http://www.cspan.org/Events/Pres-Obama-Impatience-Growing-for-Peace-Deal/10737421659-7/
"Contrary to impressions that he was surprised by Obama's speech, reports on Sunday confirmed he was told over 24 hours ahead of time that Obama would propose a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders, and had called Washington to try to get the president to change his mind and his text -- without success."
"When Obama went ahead, Netanyahu, who was about to board his flight to Washington, issued a strong statement rejecting the suggestion. Officials seemed taken aback and an aide, asked if Netanyahu had been forewarned, said: "No comment."
"In radio interviews on Sunday, however, Israeli ambassador to Washington Michael Oren on Sunday confirmed that Netanyahu was informed in advance. Asked by Israel Army Radio, "Why create a crisis?," Oren said: "We do not feel that there is a crisis. There are differences.."
"Obama's proposal that talks start on the basis of Israel's 1967 borders met with howls of protest in Israel. A right-wing group called for an anti-Obama protest at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv on Sunday."
"But some Israeli media also asked if Netanyahu himself stoked an air of crisis."
Net N Yahoo is not negotiating in good faith, but the President's speech at the AIPAC today seemed to be overwhelmingly accepted.
"inexperienced" and go ahead and throw "naive" in there...so "inexperienced" that OBL was killed on his watch vs a terror attack. The President's position is the same as Bush's and Clinton's. The AIPAC received him and his speech well today. Nut N Yahoo is not negotiating in good faith in my opinion. Not serious at all which is why he and the right wing will meet and pander to one another this week.
Wow peacebugs thanks for that info. I no longer live in NC, so I was out of the loop on this, but now I feel even worse. Mrs. Margaret as I would call her at work is one of the sweetest ladies I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She kept me encouraged many days and always referred to me as "hun." She is just a sweet lady, and her family is in my prayers.
I used to work with a sweet lady named Margaret Sands at First Health Moore Regional Hospital. I am just wondering if this is the same family. Either way, I am saddened by the injustice here. These two men took a life. They at the very least deserved to spend the rest of their lives in jail. Why should they have a chance to get out? They did not give Donnie a chance to live. They didn't even have the heart to call the ambulance.
