with decline in childhood obesity

In the wake of a report last week showing a very small decline in obesity among low-income preschoolers, former President Bill Clinton is trotting out the debunked claim that Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative deserves some of the credit.

The timeframe of the study cited by Clinton is 2008 to 2011. At least half of that time period occurred before the Let’s Move! program could have had any effect. The program wasn’t even announced, let alone implemented, until February 9, 2010.

According to a research brief published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the rate of obesity among low-income preschoolers has been declining since 2003 — six years before the Obamas entered the White House.

You’ll love these responses to Brazile’s latest Ebola hackery (#1 is genius)

The examples really are seemingly endless. As Twitchy reported, Brazile upped the hackery by appearing to basically say that the Nina Pham, the nurse infected with Ebola knew the risks. Sure, she praised her for “#service,” but many believed it was a case of “nothing to see here, guys! No screw-ups or anything. She knew the risks; no one is to blame.”

Plus, perhaps the risks would have been lessened if nurses had the proper gear.

@redsteeze @donnabrazile interesting talking point lets see if it works

— Pete (@riteormite) October 15, 2014

Heh.

This, of course, was after she took to Twitter to say there is nothing to fear about Ebola and mean old Republicans are just trying to scare you. Which one is it, Donna?

What's on your menu? If we are going to stop the #EbolaOutbreak or contain it, let's focus on how to get it done versus pointing fingers.

— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) October 15, 2014

Hmm. It’s an outbreak now. But, hey, don’t point fingers, guys!

Not so fast, Ms. Brazile.

@donnabrazile Like you did with the nurse? You're a hack.

BLAMING THE NURSE! ——>>>>>>> .@donnabrazile Donna, you need to go to a quiet place, and think HARD about what you just did. HARD. #Ebola

Ding, ding, ding! Hypocrisy, thy name is Donna Brazile.

As for the known “risks” nonsense:

.@donnabrazile Personally I encourage you to continue running with this right before an election

— S.M (@redsteeze) October 15, 2014

Make it happen.

And the best response to Brazile and her latest shameless hackery?

@redsteeze @donnabrazile Pundit infecting Twitter with her idiocy knew risks of her Tweet.

Perfect.

Choom Boom! Geraghty destroys Plouffe’s absurd Issa-smearing tweet with pic

Choom Boom! That was beautiful, National Review’s Jim Geraghty.

You see, lying liar who lies, David Plouffe, tweeted this in reference to Rep. Darrell Issa:

Somebody is running scared! Panic. Panic like the wind.

That’s right. Plouffe implied that conservative groups totally had the targeting coming, since they were “flourishing” and all.

Bingo.

Other Twitter users rightly gave David Plouffe the business.

Issa: "White House is lying about IRS right now"
WH: "Oh, yeah? Well you got arrested 40 years ago! So there!"
politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/06/02/irs…— Michael Graham (@IAMMGraham) June 03, 2013

The truth hurts!

Heh. It’s funny, because it could be true. Remember, the Department of Justice reportedly also targeted James Rosen’s parents.

Plus, things like facts and timelines are “irrelevant” according to White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer.

As CNN reports, the decades-old charges against Issa were dismissed. Plouffe continued to grasp at straws, however.

Asked why he brought up Issa’s criminal record from 1972 (when the charges were dismissed) and an arson investigation from 21 years ago where no one was charged with a crime, Plouffe told CNN that Issa’s “ethics issues are far more recent. Look at ethics complaints filed.”

But wait … what about those “ethics complaints”?

There have been at least three ethics complaints filed against Issa, all from left-leaning groups. Complains filed in and of themselves don’t necessarily mean anything, of course. House Ethics Committee or Office of Congressional Ethics judgments are much more important, and as of now there have been none against Issa.

Funny that.

Truth is hard for Plouffe.

You are getting to them, Rep. Issa.

And a plus side to Plouffe’s nonsense.

Amendment to redefine Presbyterian definition of marriage falls

In a close vote, the Presbyterian Church (USA) today rejected an amendment to the church’s constitution that would have redefined marriage from being between “a man and a woman” to “between two people.”

We know that liberals and conservatives can coexist. But can purists and unifiers live together? #ga220

— Jim Moss (@revjimmoss) July 7, 2012

The General Assembly, held this week in Pittsburgh, has been a Twitter-intensive meeting, giving an especially candid view of the diversity of views of the attendees and those following the Internet live stream.

I'd like to see a motion to limit debate to 140 characters or less. #ga220

I love that people are sharing their twitter handles when they speak!! #ga220

Initial Twitter reaction to the vote skewed toward the negative.

By 15 votes the PCUSA (Presbyterian Church) clergy are still not allowed to marry the #LGBTQ community. #Fail. #GA220

There will be no justice around marriage from the #GA220. We are hopeful for the next assembly. We have to be.

‘Calm down, America’: Joan Walsh assures us we’re no less safe than before 9/11

http://twitter.com/#!/jgagnone/status/509745275460935681

A lot of us are understandably concerned about the threats posed by ISIS and other terrorist fanatics. But Joan Walsh thinks we’re just victims of “hype and fear”:

Here’s more of her trademark of common sense:

Both the CNN and NBC polls indicate that the single biggest factor behind the surge of fear is the beheadings of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff. In the NBC poll, 94 percent said they’d heard news of the beheadings, which is higher than any other news event polled in the last five years. They accomplished what they were intended to: make Americans feel vulnerable, angry and ready to fight. Mission accomplished, ISIS!

This despite the fact that the beheadings changed nothing about the security situation in the U.S., and gave us little or no new information about ISIS’s capacity in Iraq or Syria.As I wrote after the Sotloff tragedy, nobody came to our shores and snatched those men. Unless you’re judging American security by the safety of freelance Syria correspondents, nothing that happened to them proves that there’s any increased danger to Americans. We learned nothing new about the power or reach of ISIS, or its cruelty. The beheadings were designed to make the U.S. over-react, and to draw the country into a one-on-one war with “the Islamic state.” Let’s hope on that count they fail.

Yeah, those Americans were beheaded, but it happened someplace else. So we’re perfectly safe.

At this point, you may also be asking yourself, “but what about reports of Americans taking up with ISIS?” Joan has a comforting answer for that, too:

No doubt people are also concerned by reports that up to 100 Americans have joined ISIS– and presumably they’d have an easier time returning and causing harm in the U.S.. But those reports turned out not to be true. Roughly 100 Americans have, at some point, gone to Syria to be involved in the fight there – but that count includes moderates fighting on the U.S. side.  The Pentagon estimates the number allied with ISIS to be around a dozen.

Joan’s got the inside scoop.

And lots of those Americans are just “moderate Syrian rebels.” Nothing to worry about.
