We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!
It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Friday September 5, 2014.
Is President Obama actually stronger on terror than he sounds?
Three ISIS leaders have been killed by American airstrikes.
House Republicans are planning to force President Obama’s hand when it comes to dealing with ISIS.
The rise of ISIS has had an impact on the libertarian anti-interventionists in the GOP.
This is President Obama’s moment of truth.
Even Obamacare’s biggest fans are having a hard time explaining why they’re optimistic about America’s healthcare future.
Are we about to witness the new “Conservative moment?”
The Tea Party is not happy with Governor Rick Perry.
Perry is associated with three operatives who have concerned some members of the die-hard right wing: lobbyist Henry Barbour, former Bill Clinton aide Mark Fabiani, and McCain-Palin campaign chief and MSNBC pundit Steve Schmidt.
Well, maybe “concerned” is putting it somewhat mildly.
“The only two options are that Rick Perry is a complete imbecile and he has no idea who these people are and what they’ve done and how the conservative base—who votes in primaries—feels about these guys, or he’s doing it on purpose because that’s the kind of message he wants to send,” said Keli Carender, the national grassroots coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots. Either way, she assured: “It will be an issue. We will make it an issue.”
