Back in 2013, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz began to fear that President Obama was going to remove her as chair. And so she "lined up supporters to suggest the move would be anti-Semitic and sexist," reports the Daily Caller.

Unfortunately, Obama eventually decided to keep her on as chairwoman. This of course means we never got to see the fireworks that would have erupted had Schultz' supporters made those allegations.

Critics of President Obama's "net neutrality" plan call it ObamaCare for the Internet.

That's unfair to ObamaCare.

Both ObamaCare and "Obamanet" submit huge industries to complex regulations. Their supporters say the new rules had to be passed before anyone could read them. But at least ObamaCare claimed it would solve long-standing problems. Obamanet promises to fix an Internet that isn't broken.

In recent weeks, I have heard former Associated Press reporter Ron Fournier on Fox News twice asserting, quite offhandedly, that President George W. Bush "lied us into war in Iraq."

I found this shocking. I took a leave of absence from the bench in 2004-05 to serve as co-chairman of the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction -- a bipartisan body, sometimes referred to as the Robb-Silberman Commission. It was directed in 2004 to evaluate the intelligence community's determination that Saddam Hussein possessed WMD -- I am, therefore, keenly aware of both the intelligence provided to President Bush and his reliance on that intelligence as his primary casus belli. It is astonishing to see the "Bush lied" allegation evolve from antiwar slogan to journalistic fact.

Garrett Jackson, Mitt Romney's body man throughout the 2012 campaign, told Politico that he believes David Axelrod "concocted" a phone call recounted in his memoir. Jackson, 28, said, "When I read that, I was furious. ... It didn't happen. ... I was right next to the gov. Hell, it was my phone. I was the one who called [Obama aide] Marvin Nicholson. ... Mitt goes: 'Mr. President, I just wanted to call and congratulate you and your team on a well-fought race, and congratulate you on your victory.' Then there was a silence on Mitt's end -- we weren't on speaker. The president said a few quick words, and then Mitt said: 'I know there's a lot of tough decisions ahead, Mr. President -- a lot of tough issues that face our country. And it's my hope that you'll tackle those issues, and know that I'm here to help in any way that I can.' There was another pause, and Mitt responded: 'Well, know that you and the first lady are in Ann and my prayers daily.' And then the call ended."
