Opinion: Obama Says He Is Bored With Debate Prep, Really He’s Afraid To Defend His Failed Record

Preparing for this debate has got to be the most depressing thing Obama has ever done. He must be staring at facts and figures that he can hardly believe – and then realize he has to defend them come Wednesday night – with his biggest critic, Mitt Romney – and the nation – staring at him. It’s going to be terrible for Obama.

Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Gary Clark Jr., Highlight Day One Of Made In America

Day one of Jay-Z’s Made In America Festival seemed like a huge success despite overcrowding, and long lines for bathrooms, beer and pretty much anything else. On the plus side, it was probably the most racially integrated summer festival yet, and therefore was more of a microcosm of America than most festivals. It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Jay-Z pulling such a diverse audience, or creating such a diverse bill.
