You have to give President Obama credit for delivering his “American Jobs Act” speech at 7 p.m. EST, getting it over with early enough so that he wouldn't interfere with the Saints vs. Packers game and/or a crucial episode of Big Brother.

On the flip side, 8 p.m. on is called prime time for a reason.

If you missed it (purposely or not) The Prez blended his trademark oration with economic proposals that essentially boiled down to him telling the Republican-led Congress, “You should pass this jobs plan right away.”

Obama tried to position himself with the public and as a voice of reason, stating:

“The question is whether, in the face of an ongoing national crisis, we can all stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy.”

He insisted this was “not class warfare,” while saying that “we need a tax code where everyone gets a fair shake” and “everyone pays their fair share.”

The immediate reaction to the President’s speech was mixed.

Leave it Rush Limbaugh to take Kraft Foods' delicious new Triple Oreo product and turn it into a strangely-worded, quasi-racial attack on President Obama.

The radio host is no stranger to making controversial comments, but this diatribe from Wednesday (August 17) was a doozy even by his lofty standards.

"Kraft Foods is going to launch a new Oreo ... It's a Triple Double Oreo. Well, what it's going to be here, it's actually a biracial cookie," he said, adding:

"You've got three chocolate wafers, and then you've got the white vanilla cream, the cream, and then there's a chocolate cream. The Triple Double Oreo."

"You wait, it isn't going to be long before it's called the Or-Bam-eo, or something. Well, it's a biracial cookie, here ... In the midst of all this talk of obesity."

"And, I mean, every time Michelle Obama goes out there and talks about healthful eating, the food industry responds with, 'Oh, yeah? Take this.'"

"And Kraft comes up with the Or-Bam-eo, the triple double-dipper."

Well, there you have it folks. Do you think Rush is using "Oreo" as a racist term for Obama, or just rambling? And how good does that cookie sound??! Discuss.

Rush Limbaugh: Racist?

Major headache for the Secret Service? Probably. President Barack Obama upping his coolness quotient even as his popularity plummets? Definitely!

As Obama embarks on a bus tour of the Midwest in an attempt to spur economic/poll number growth, updates will be posted on Foursquare!

"Barack is Now The President of the Oval Office."

“The White House is now on Foursquare, a location-based social networking website, which is the latest way for you to engage with the administration.”

Filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal are under fire for their upcoming film about the capture of Osama bin Laden, according to reports.

The New York Times' Maureen Dowd wrote Sunday that the Obama administration is granting the filmmakers access for the president's electoral benefit.

Barack Obama at the Podium

"The movie is scheduled to open on October 12, 2012 - perfectly timed to give a home-stretch boost to a campaign that has grown tougher," Dowd wrote.

Regardless of its purpose, Obama can't help but get a boost from the film.

Bigelow and Boal, who collaborated on Oscar-winning film The Hurt Locker, disputed the suggestion Wednesday in a joint statement issued to EW.

"Our upcoming film about the decade long pursuit of Bin Laden has been in the works for many years and integrates the collective efforts of three administrations, including those of Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama," they say.

With his economic policy compared to a tar baby, and with fellow Democrats lashing out for the concessions he gave away to Republicans in their debt ceiling compromise, President Barack Obama turns 50 years old today.

We're guessing the man could use a vacation.

Instead, he has more work in front of him than ever before: fixing an economy, slashing the unemployment rate, running for re-election in 2012, convincing one party he isn't a Socialist and the other he isn't weaker than the chances of Ashley Hebert actually marrying J.P. Rosenbaum.

At the very least, Obama could use some birthday wishes right about now. Hang in there, Mr. President. At least you helped kill Osama Bin Laden. That guy sucked.

Doug Lamborn is really sorry. When he referred to President Barack Obama's economic policy as a "tar baby" this week, he meant to use the word "quagmire." Hey, we've all been there, right?

In a radio show interview over the weekend, the Colorado Congressman said:

“Even if some people say, ‘Well the Republicans should have done this or they should have done that,’ they will hold the President responsible. Now, I don’t even want to have to be associated with him. It’s like touching a tar baby and you get it, you’re stuck, and you’re a part of the problem now and you can’t get away.”

Lamborn has since sent a letter of apology to the President and his office released the following statement:

The congressman was “attempting to tell a radio audience last week that the president's policies have created an economic quagmire for the nation and are responsible for the dismal economic conditions our country faces. He regrets that he chose the phrase 'tar baby,' rather than the word 'quagmire.'

We began the evening with only three dudes with Ms. Ashley in Fiji, but the surprise return of a former contestant shook things up once again.

The Bachelorette spoilers accurately predicted who came, and who left, but that didn't make it less compelling - or bizarre, at times - to watch.

The Woman in Command

From a picnic under a magnolia tree to a trip to the family restaurant, the guys pulled out all the stops to win over Ashley. But would it be enough?

Who's in? Who's out? Who's the favorite in next week's season finale?

Let's break down last night's overnight dates and all things Ashley, Constantine, J.P., Ben and ... find out in THG's official +/- Bachelorette recap:

The tax rate on wealthy Americans is at its lowest figure in over 50 years, but Steve Wynn doesn't care.

The casino magnate spoke to the press in Las Vegas yesterday and blasted President Barack Obama for his job-creating record, bringing back the misunderstood "S" word Republicans fired Obama's way during the 2008 election.

  • Steve Wynn Picture
  • The President of the United States of America

"This administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime," Wynn said. "The guy [Obama] keeps making speeches about redistribution, and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest or hold too much money. We haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists."

Slain Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden had a hit list, according to reports, with taking down U.S. President on September 11 of this year his #1 target.

Bin Laden's list called for a "celebration" of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by shooting down Air Force One with President Obama on board.

The terrorist mastermind, who was killed by U.S. forces May 1, also wanted Gen. David Petraeus dead and to crash a plane into a major sports event.

Obama, Osama

A "treasure trove" of documents discovered in Bin Laden's hideout revealed the plans the Al Qaeda chief was crafting to assassinate Barack Obama.

To accomplish that horrific goal, Bin Laden discussed attacking the president's plane or helicopter with a missile or grenade, officials told ABC News.

These machinations were part of U.S. intelligence discoveries that included the murderer's huge porn stash at his Abbottabad, Pakistan, compound.

Barack is dealing with a lot these days.

Trying to manage two wars, revive a stagnant economy, provide health care, reach a compromise over the federal debt ceiling and keep various factious of constituents happy regarding social issues is a balancing act, to be sure.

One he seems a bit overwhelmed by in this College Humor video, which uses a Fourth of July BBQ as a metaphor for President Obama's life ...
