Earnest to Dem Sen. Begich: Obama Is "Relevant"

White House press secretary Josh Earnest responds to Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK) calling Obama not "relevant" in an interview with the Washington Examiner. JOSH EARNEST, WHITE HOUSE: I didn't actually see those comments. He certainly -- again, Senator Begich is certainly entitled to his opinion, but I think that the vast majority of Americans would agree whoever is the sitting president of the United States happens to be is relevant in a lot......

O'Reilly: "Smokescreen Of Fear" Is Nonsense To Distract From "Weak Leadership"

BILL O'REILLY: All sane people should be fearful of terror activity all over the world. And the world should join together to destroy the jihadists. President Obama will have to stand on his own performance. The smoke screen of fear is nonsense -- just another lame attempt to divert attention away from the real problem, weak leadership.

Cenk Uygur: Republicans Love Latinos, Unless Hating Them Gets More Votes

CENK UYGUR: They’re running the anti-immigration ads in the states where it is least relevant. That’s interesting. Why are they doing that? Because they don’t actually care about the actual issue. All they want to do is scare you. They feel that if they scare you and tell you, ‘Look away from our donors,’ [you’ll think] ‘Did the banks crash the economy and cost a lot of your families jobs? Noooo, it was the goddamn immigrants......

CNN Anchor Laughs At Bristol Palin Describing Assault: "The Best Audio We've Ever Come Across"

CAROL COSTELLO, CNN: OK, I'm just going to come right out and say it. This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we've ever come across. Well, come across in a long time anyway.

That's what Bristol Palin told police in an interview after the incident. And now police...

Obama on Canada: "We Don't Yet Have All The Information About What Motivated The Shooting"

QUESTION: Can you say something about Canada? PRESIDENT OBAMA: Oh, thank you very much. I appreciate -- thank you. I had a chance to talk with Prime Minister Harper this afternoon. Obviously, the situation there is tragic. Just two days ago, a Canadian soldier had been killed in an attack. We now know that another young man was killed today. And I expressed on behalf of the American people our condolences to the family and to the...

Krauthammer: "People Have A Sense That Things Are Out Of Control"

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: When you talk about this sense of disorder, lack of control, I'm not sure how much of that poll question was tongue in cheek. It literally was, "Do you have the feeling that things in the U.S. are out of control?" and the numbers say yes with 64% -- two-thirds of the population, that's a pretty high number. That's even higher than the wrong track, right track. With wrong track, you can say, well, it's about the policies,...

Howard Dean: Republicans Have Done A "Terrific Job" Making Election About Obama

JOE SCARBOROUGH, MSNBC: Why is this race so close against an established figure like Jeanne Shaheen? HOWARD DEAN: Because of President Obama's approval rating. The Republicans have done a terrific job in this way. They've nationalized the election, first of all, which is a good thing in the sixth year of a president. More importantly, they've made the issue the president. If not, they could avoid all this controversial stuff they've got be...

Chris Matthews reacts to Democratic Senate candidates Michelle Nunn (D-GA) and Mark Begich (D-AK), an incumbent, dodging the question if they voted for Obama. "That's the way people walk past guys who are trying to get a buck or a quarter from somebody," Matthews said describing the candidates ignoring the question from a tracker. "It's like Obama has Ebola," Matthews said on Monday's broadcast of Hardball on MSNBC. "I wasn't near...

Palin to "Uppity" Tina Brown: "Chick, You're A Day Late And A Dollar Short"

Sarah Palin reacts to Tina Brown saying President Obama makes women feel "unsafe." SARAH PALIN: That little lady, Tina Brown, she is such a big part of the problem. She and her ilk being so über uppity, so cocksure of their untouchable elitism, they who support liberal men who have kept women, unfortunately, kind of embracing this lie...

David Corn: Minorities "May Not Even Know That They're Not Being Allowed To Vote"

CHRIS MATTHEWS: What about the attempt to intimidate them out of voting? DAVID CORN: That's true. That's happening in Texas, North Carolina, Georgia. And when you do that, when people want to vote or they are thinking about an election, they do get ticked off and it motivates them. But the question is, as Wesley just indicated, they're so distant from this election that they may not even know that they're not being allowed to vote. And then...

Mika Brzezinski: Lewinsky Was "Taken Advantage Of By Someone Who Preyed Upon Her"

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I think that if anyone wants to think something badly about her right now or say something, they might want to think about whether or not any of their daughters, sisters, mothers, aunts would've found themselves perhaps in a similar situation at 22 years old... She was taken advantage of by somebody who preyed upon her. And what she has done since then is for the most part keep fairly quiet, move on with her life, and now she's...

Wasserman Schultz: "We Have An Opportunity To Pick Up Seats And Beyond That, I Wouldn't Make Other Predictions"

DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: I think we are still really in a neck and neck situation in terms of whether or not we see pickups for Democrats or pickup for Republicans. This is an election where in every single competitive race it's coming down to the wire. For example, four years ago in 2010 the DCCC let loose a whole lot of incumbents. There is not an incumbent Democrat that today you would predict would be losing. JOE SCARBOROUGH: Is there...
