Bush took vacations either at his own home in Texas or at his parents place in Kennebunkport. Thats not the same thing as flying off to South Africa on safari or touring Brazil or hanging at Marthas Vineyard. Itd be nice to see the Obamas go back to Illinois, back to Hyde Park for a vacation, and hey, it would lower their carbon footprint too. But when exactly have liberals been a...

Right, that's why they are discontinuing their conference for lack of funding. What a great success. Dear Comrade Hal, Your comment would be interesting if it was actually true. But like a lot of things that liberals talk about its not accurate; wishful thinking maybe, but not correct. In fact, Heartland just held their 8th annual Climategate conference in Europe.

It was the first time Mr. Chvez talked publicly about who might replace him, prompting many analysts to speculate that the former army tank commander believes himself to be...
