Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Sarah Palin slams Obama’s ‘hypocrisy’ for advocating gun control and abortion rights simultaneously

Sarah Palin slams Obama’s ‘hypocrisy’ for advocating gun control and abortion rights simultaneouslyWashington - Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has criticized President Barack Obama as being a ‘hypocrite’ for advocating gun control as a way to protect children while simultaneously supporting abortion rights.

In a post on her Facebook page, Palin, one-time Republican vice presidential candidate, charged Obama with ‘hypocrisy’ for ‘boldly highlighting children’ in anti-gun violence speeches, while supporting an ‘abortion agenda’.

According to the Huffington Post, Palin wrote that ‘using kids as the backdrop for his gun control speech, the President claimed his commitment to young ones’.

She added that ‘the hypocrisy of it all, however, is that while the President publicly acknowledged the value of “even one life”, he has failed to acknowledge as much when it comes to ‘protecting the lives of children soon to be born.’

 Palin continued that his commitment to the nation’s children is selective. When children in the womb are on the chopping block, the President is silent. When he places the Second Amendment, however, on the chopping block, children are his focus.

Palin is not the first conservative to draw a link between gun control rhetoric and abortion in the weeks since the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School reawakened the national debate on gun violence.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh and conservative pundit Erick Erickson have took a similar line of attack against Obama last week, the report added.
