Should we be concerned that this voting machine in Pennsylvania seems to be altering votes? This morning a man from Pennsylvania uploaded a video of a defective machine that wouldn’t allow him to select Barack Obama. Every time he tried to select the Democrat option it would highlight Mitt Romney instead.
I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney’s name and started tapping very closely together to find the ‘active areas’. From the top of Romney’s button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama’s name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein’s button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.
Tyler Sullivan is one lucky fifth grader. Set to introduce the president at a Honeywell factory in Minneapolis, Tyler’s father Ryan, allowed his son to skip school to meet President Barack Obama.
Making sure Tyler had something to show teachers, the president wrote a note explaining Tyler’s absence.
Well played. Now that’s a note that can get you of detention!
I don’t go to the University of Alabama but if I did I would definitely vote Jack Blankenship, aka The Face, for president. Better yet, he should just be president of the WORLD. Blankenship introduces himself as the face of the school’s basketball team but says he didn’t just bring his face to campus… but also his heart.
He could run solely on his face, just like Obama runs on sexiness.
The self-proclaimed “distraction artist” worked the late night circuit a couple months back when he made a photobomb of his face. Looks like he’s finding more ways to distract us…
YouTube user Barackdubs has uploaded footage of Obama on the podium to create the entire delivery of Lady Gaga’s hit anthem “Born This Way”.
Obama doesn’t actually sing but his voice and all the words found in the “Born This Way” lyrics are used. It’s a genius creation that must have taken the YouTube user hours to complete.
Obama and Lady Gaga may never perform together on stage but they have met in person to discuss anti-bullying campaigns for high school across North America.
The Obamas are rubbing with celebrities all over the place. First Lady Michelle Obama is set to appear in an upcoming episode of the kid’s show “iCarly”. She won’t be singing, though.
Check out Obama “singing” in this video below.
Just when you think you’ve seen the last of the Palins, at least until 2012, 20-year-old Bristol churns out 304 pages of pure, uncensored memoir!
Yes, that’s right. The queen of all teen moms has officially signed a deal with publishing house William Morrow & Co. to release the “Untitled Bristol Palin Memoir,” a riveting tale of televised dancing competitions, evil exes posing in Playgirl, and having a child named after an uncommonly specific verb.
The book is listed on Amazon and can be preordered to ensure you get your very own copy for the June 21st release.
Memoirs are written for one of four reasons: to quell nostalgia, to boost egos, to stuff pockets, or to celebrate an important person’s life. We wonder what Bristol’s motivation was… hmm…
Further evidence that Barack Obama is the coolest President of all time. President Obama will be making an appearance on “Myth Busters,” despite his busy schedule. “I am a big fan of ‘MythBusters.’ I am, and so are the girls,” he tells the hosts in a preview for the upcoming show.
Obama is presenting a challenge to hosts Adam and Jamie to test the myth of Archimedes’ solar ray. Check out the preview below!
“After weeks of quiet but painstaking reflection with my wife and daughter, I have chosen to end my bid for the presidency of Haiti,” the musician, 40, said, according to a BBC report.
Jean was told he didn’t meet the requirements for President since he has lived in the U.S. for years. He has launched an appeal.
“The appeal was meant to improve the electoral process for all, candidates and voters alike,” he says. “It is one way that I hope to bring light to the functioning of a government that is often ranked as one of the most corrupt on the planet, resulting in a country that is by most measures the poorest in the Western world.”
Wyclef Jean’s Haitian presidential candidacy might be over before it really even started. As E! Online reports, Jean’s name didn’t appear on a list of approved candidates for the presidency.
An election official told Reuters that “he is not on the list as I speak,” confirming the news.
The current list isn’t official, so there is still a slim chance that Jean might appear on the ballot—The Provisional Electoral Council is set to announce the official list Friday.
It’s unclear why Jean’s name wasn’t included, but speculation has been directed toward the legitimacy of his qualifications that are required to run. Some are unsure whether Jean has actually lived in Haiti for five years; though he was born in the country, he moved to the United States as a child.
Jean maintains confidence though, he told the Miami Herald, “My lawyers have produced every piece of document that has been asked for,” continuing, “No one can say that there is any flaw.”
I guess we’ll have to wait and see on Friday.
Wyclef Jean announced that he will be running as a candidate for president of Haiti Thursday, and it wasn’t long before criticism started to come his way, reports E! Online. Sean Penn appeared on CNN Thursday to publicly criticize Jean and what he believes his motives are being influenced by.
“Right now, I worry that this is a campaign that is more about a vision of flying around the world talking to people, it’s certainly not about the youth drafting him,” said Penn, commenting on Jean’s earlier statement about the youth of Haiti drafting him, rather than him simply running for president.
Penn, who currently resides in Haiti doesn’t believe that the response inside the country is anywhere near the kind of anticipation that people in the United States are building it up to be.
“This is somebody who’s going to receive an enormous amount of his support, if he continues this campaign, from the United States,” said Penn. “I have to say, I’m very suspicious of it, simply because he, as an ambassador-at-large, has been virtually silent. For those of us in Haiti, he has been a non-presence.”
“One of the reasons I don’t know much about Wyclef Jean is I haven’t seen or heard anything in these last six months that I’ve been in Haiti. I think he’s an important voice, I hope he doesn’t sacrifice that voice by taking the eye off the very devastating realities off the ground and the very different strategic future it’s got in putting itself back together.”
It’s clear how Sean Penn feels about Wyclef Jean’s candidacy, what do you think?
Well he has done a ton in the music world, now it’s time to try the political world. CNN reports that musician Wyclef Jean will announce his candidacy for the President of Haiti on Thursday’s edition of “Larry King Live.”
Other details are very sketchy at this time, but sources do confirm Wycelf’s appearance on the CNN show. There have been rumors circulating for months that he may run for President. He even wrote a song called “If I Was President.”
Wyclef was born in Haiti but moved to Brooklyn soon after. PopEater reports that to run for president, Jean must prove he’s resided in Haiti for five consecutive years, that he owns property in the country and that he has no other citizenship but Haitian
President Barack Obama’s controversial statement hadn’t even aired yet when he got on the phone from Air Force One Thursday night to apologize for comparing his infamously bad bowling skills to the Special Olympics.
While on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno, Obama talked about how he’d gotten better at bowling and had been practicing in the Whilte House bowling alley. It was toward the end of his approximately 40-minute taping when he told Leno, “I bowled a 129.”
Leno replied with a sarcastic, “That’s very good, Mr. President.”
