Liz Cheney isn't impressed with the president's speech to the UN General Assembly, calling it 'rhetoric punctuated by moments of... delusion.'

He talked about the moment that we're living through in the Middle East now... he said this is a real 'season of progress...'

The president still isn't on the same page with the rest of his administration says Paul Ryan in reaction to Obama describing the attack that killed Ambassador Stevens on The View without calling it terrorism.

We're still doing an investigation... it wasn't just a mob action... we don't have all the information yet, we're still gathering it.

Karl Rove makes the now common Republican argument that polls are showing an Obama lead because they're using turnout models based on 2008, when there were unusual circumstances such as young voters turning out at twice their normal rate.

Is the GOP argument accurate? The Atlantic does analysis.

On Monday, Buzzfeed interviewed a Virginia-based blogger who re-weights public polls to reflect the partisan trends reported by automated pollster Rasmussen Reports. Dean Chambers, the blogger, then presents the adjusted data in charts on his website, unskewedpolls.com.

As of late Monday, Chambers' website claimed that an average of polls conducted since Labor Day show Mitt Romney leading Obama, 52 percent to 44 percent. The website and its findings were trumpeted on the Drudge Report, the conservative-leaning news-aggregation site that has tended to highlight polls more favorable to Romney and less favorable to the president.

Channel 5 makes it sound like something ugly happened in Boston, but it looks more like a farcical moment in the Brown/Warren campaign Tuesday as Scott's signholders mocked Liz Warren, who built her campaign on a fake claim to minority status.

Staffers for Sen. Scott Brown chanted Indian "war whoops" and made "tomahawk chops" during a rally for the Republican senator this week in Boston.

Scott used the opportunity to reiterate that Warren "checked the box" to falsely claim rights to preferred status in hiring.

It is certainly something that I don't condone," said Brown when asked about the video. "The real offense is that (Warren) said she was white and then checked the box saying she is Native American, and then she changed her profile in the law directory once she made her tenure."

Here's the raw video of the protest.

Channels 4 & 7 didn't have the story.

Why are New York City schools pushing the morning after pill onto teens as young as 14 without notification of parents? Chancellor Dennis Walcott says it's to keep them out of poverty, but with a graduation rate of about 61%, the schools are poverty factories.

As you know from the research, if you're having an unwanted pregnancy as a teenager you have a higher chance of living in poverty and our goal is to have make sure our children are in school getting a quality education...

From the New York Post.

CATCH — Connecting Adolescents To Comprehensive Health — is part of a citywide attack against the epidemic of teen pregnancy, which spurs many girls — most of them poor — to drop out of school.

Parents at the 14 schools were sent letters informing them about CATCH. Parents may bar their kids from getting pregnancy tests or contraceptives if they sign and return an opt-out statement.

If they do not, schools can confidentially give the contraception without permission.

We'll know that Liz Warren is being honest about Geronigate when she 1) stops pretending the issue is about what her parents told her and 2) produces her personnel records from Harvard that demonstrate she wasn't a minority hire. Absent that, you can consider this a confession of malfeasance.

We're not interested in what people say who want to protect you and Harvard, Betsy. Show us the documents.

Mitt Romney responded Monday to the president's suggestion on 60 Minutes that the meltdown in the Mideast, including the death of the US Ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi, is a 'bump in the road.'

We've just had an ambassador assasinated... Iran is on the cusp of having nuclear capability... we have tumult in Syria... I don't consider these bumps in the road, I think this is a time for American leadership.

Here is the president's statement from his 60 Minutes interview Sunday night.

And here's presidential spinmeister Jay Carney pretending all this is a fabrication of the Romney campaign.
