Burn.

Jonathan Karl:
I'm sure you've had a chance to or you've seen this op-ed that former Vice President Dick Cheney has written in the Wall Street Journal that has a rather critical tone to it towards the White House. It says, "Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many..." talking about the situation in Iraq and the Middle East generally.
Jay Carney:
Which president was he talking about?

A lovely story about Romney/Ryan.

This is the best, most concise explanation of the past four years ever.

I just really enjoy this analogy. A very clever metaphor.

This is still relevant and always will be.

DailyPBO: The President & The Standing Rock Sioux Reservation - June 2014
The crowd to President Obama: “We love you President Obama! You’re our hero!”
President Obama: “I love you back!”
Obama became only the fourth sitting president to visit an Indian reservation. Attending with the First Lady, it was a truly inspiring event at the Cannon Ball Pow Wow Grounds in Cannon Ball, North Dakota. The Native American community was bursting with pride over the president’s visit and when he spoke Lakota during his speech, they were completely moved. It was a wonderful day for a community that never (and I mean NEVER) gets the respect they deserve. Bravo, Mr. President.

Real Time with Bill Maher: 6.6.14 — Anthony Weiner, Jim Geraghety, Nicolle Wallace

#FINALLYSOMEONESAYSIT

Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.

A million times this.  Every time I get behind a car with a bumper sticker saying something like “Where’s all that change you asked for?” I want to scream at them.  It’s like turning off the AC and then mocking people for sweating.  

He’s Right

President Obama came down hard on gun-control laws during today’s Tumblr Q&A. See the president’s full response on gun control here.

Sasha Obama.

David Karp:
Now that she’s 13, according to Tumblr’s terms of service, she’s officially old enough to use Tumblr.
President Obama:
She wasn’t old enough before that?
Karp:
She wasn't. I'm sorry. We can let this one slide.
Obama:
I’m going have to talk to somebody about that.

When wars end, prisoners taken custody must be released. These five Guantanamo detainees were almost all members of the Taliban, according to the biographies of the five detainees that the Afghan Analysts Network compiled in 2012. None were facing charges in either military or civilian courts for their actions. It remains an open question whether the end of U.S. involvement in the armed conflict in Afghanistan requires that all Guantanamo detainees must be released. But there is no doubt that Taliban detainees captured in Afghanistan must be released because the armed conflict against the Taliban will be over.

You now have the potential of 200 people deciding who ends up being elected president every single time… I may be the last presidential candidate who could win the way I won, which was coming out without a lot of special-interest support, without a handful of big corporate supporters, who was able to mobilize and had the time and the space to mobilize a grassroots effort, and then eventually got a lot of big donors, but started off small and was able to build. I think the capacity for somebody to do that is going to be much harder.
