Inside the Beltway: Strategic revels
“After the first round we received enormous feedback from our U.S. audience,” says RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan.
A STALL TACTIC
“We continue to learn more about the incident in Benghazi, yet we hear no response or explanation from President Obama. I remember the University of North Carolina basketball team, under coach Dean Smith, used a tactic called, ‘four corners.’ It was a stall tactic implemented, particularly in the second half, since there was no shot clock to run down the clock,” observes Rep. Allen B. West, Florida Republican, in a message to his local fans.
“It is evident by his appearances on those really tough media outlets like Inside Edition, Daily Show, Late Night, Tonight Show, and MTV that President Obama, a basketball enthusiast, learned about using the four corners. But there’s one difference. The president’s team has no lead on the scoreboard, and the American people have the ball. The only question is, will they slam dunk?”
