A…Third Term?; Christie On Top; Kid Charged With Terrorism; Obama Writes A Letter; Drunk Friday – TGIF Friday Morning News Roundup 11-29-2013

November 29, 2013 by  

Here is a collection of some of the stories making the Internet rounds this morning. Click the links for the full stories.

In The Washington Post, Jonathan Zimmerman, a history professor from NYU, has written an article claiming that all of America’s problems would be solved – GET THIS – if only we would allow Barack Obama to run for a third term! He wants to amend the Constitution and abolish presidential term limits. Zimmerman writes that Obama – whose approval rating is at an all time low of 37%–would be much more effective at governing if he could stand for re-election in 2016 because then he’d be less likely to “ignore” the will of the American people.

A new poll released Friday morning indicates that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, fresh off his Garden State re-election landslide victory and widespread National media attention, jumped to the top of the pack of potential contenders for the GOP nomination. Source: CNN…


Police say a 15-year-old freshman boy faces a second-degree criminally negligent burning charge, a misdemeanor, and a first-degree terroristic threatening charge, a felony, after he ignited a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom of West High School in Alaska Wednesday morning. Under Alaska law, a person causing the evacuation of a building can receive a terroristic threatening charge. And that is reportedly what happened after alarms sounded at West High at 10:57 a.m. Source: Breitbart…


A Texas schoolteacher who wrote a letter highly critical of President Obama’s health care law was surprised when the president himself wrote back defending his policies but admitting that health care “wasn’t the smart political thing!” [T]he letter is a strangely personal exchange between the president and Thomas Ritter, 49. The abrasive tone of Ritter’s letter makes it all the more unusual that Obama would respond. Ritter is trying to make the best of the situation but only in the most literal sense. He’s put the letter up for auction, asking for minimum bid of $24,000. “The president told me what he thought I wanted to hear. The letter is just words on a paper. It doesn’t mean anything to me because Obama doesn’t mean any of it.” Source: Yahoo News…


With more stores opening on Thanksgiving, malls have been seeing more guests who drank too much booze with their turkey, said Garth Gasse, director of retail operations and asset protection at the Retail Industry Leaders Association, an Arlington, Virginia, trade group. “They’ve probably consumed a few and they probably shouldn’t be out shopping,” Gasse said. This year, Wal-Mart distributed wristbands for its 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. special events on Thanksgiving Day. To prevent a rush, shoppers with wristbands were allowed return two hours after an event starts to pick up their purchases. Source: Bloomberg…
