    Live on Fox News now. He started out with lame jokes about how this appearance gave him an excuse to use Air Force One, and something about someone teaching profanity to underprivileged children. And more blather. Just thought I'd start a thread on this live appearance.

    Barack Obama takes first ride as US President on Air Force One From correspiondents in Washington Agence France-Presse February 06, 2009 11:31am BARACK Obama has taken his debut flight as president on his new "spiffy ride" - the blue and white Boeing 747 which serves as Air Force One. Mr Obama also took his first trip aboard Marine One - the helicopter which ferries the president around on shorter trips - this time from the White House to Andrews air force base outside Washington. The President walked to the press cabin at the back of his new plane before taking...
  • Racist or realist? [Pointing out the emptiness of Barack Obama can lead to trouble]

    Toronto Sun ^ | 2009-01-31 | Michael Coren
    Last week I was condemned as a racist. A little surprising for me in that I'm often criticized for wanting to forgive almost all African debt, prosecute arms dealers who sell weapons to African nations and have North America and Europe launch a massive investment campaign into a continent we have raped for centuries. But none of this matters because I dared to say in print and on radio and television that Barack Obama may well be an empty vessel and that his inauguration speech was shallow and jarringly rhetorical. The bombardment of spiteful, threatening and misspelled e-mails hasn't stopped...

    “I hope he fails.” — Rush Limbaugh It is, of course, a calculated outrage. Meaning, it was spewed by a clown in the media circus to kick a familiar sequence into motion: angry denunciation by bloggers, pundits and supporters of President Obama (the “he” whose failure is hoped), followed by Rush Limbaugh refusing to retract a word, a courageous truth teller who will not be moved. And, trailing behind, like the folks with brooms trail the elephants in the circus parade, Limbaugh’s devotees, complaining that their hero has been misquoted, misunderstood or otherwise mistreated. “What Rush meant was ... yadda...
  • Hans Blix: Obama "raises hope" for peaceful Iran solution

    The accession of United States President Barack Obama has paved the way to a peaceful Iran solution, according to former United Nations weapons inspector Hans Blix. Blix believes the deadlock between the West and Iran over nuclear capabilities was made worse by the "contempt" shown by the former US administration. He also said that the Iraq war was lost rather than won. Blix rose to prominence in 2000 when he was appointed by the UN to search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) poured cold water on the pretext...

Bush's tenure as Commander in Chief. ----- I can't believe that someone would brain wash this little girl. It is sad and wrong. It's even sadder that the momlogic site would put a video up about it. If you don't mind make a comment against the video. If you don't mind go to the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page and give them a ear full in an email. Thanks, Roland

    There was a time when it was considered poor taste for comedians to attack a current President of the United States, but that day ended with SNL and Richard Nixon. The world has since flipped, and now people worry when the comedians are not ripping the President. Thus far, most comedians are having difficulty targeting President-Elect Obama. The reason is simple; most comedians are liberals. They just don't see anything worthy of mockery in him. Case in point, this loon, who actually gets paid to "direct talent" for Comedy Central. Comedy Central Director of Talent JoAnn Grigioni says she sympathizes...

    NEW YORK -- President-elect Barack Obama is on his way to the big screen, thanks to a deal between MSNBC and Screenvision that will put the news channel's inaugural coverage in 27 theaters around the country. Free tickets are being handed out via MSNBC.com to see the inauguration and parade from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. ET at the 27 theaters run by 11 exhibitor partners in 21 markets. Midday Tuesday isn't necessarily a big movie time, so it helps to fill the theater -- and boost popcorn and soda sales -- at a time when it's not usually busy. That means...

    MELANIE PHILLIPS: Sorry to be a party pooper, but I can't share this swooning Obama hysteria Has everyone lost their marbles? The inauguration of President Obama is being treated like the Second Coming. The coverage is so gushing we might all drown. Of course it’s a great thing that America, with its history of slavery and segregation still a shockingly recent memory, now has a black President; the palpable joy of African-Americans is entirely understandable and deeply touching. And there’s no doubt that Obama is a highly charismatic and attractive personality. But what’s more than a wee bit troubling is...

    MarketWatch ^ | 1-19-09 | John Friedman
    NEW YORK (MarketWatch) - Good riddance, Dubya. The most telling aspect of President George W. Bush's treatment of the media is that his incoming successor, Barack Obama, has already eclipsed the nation's 43rd chief executive in relations with journalists. Obama has (smartly) reached across the media divide to listen to conservative journalists and show them some measure of respect. It's hard to imagine that Obama would truly embrace the views of Bill Kristol, the journalist who was an early champion of Sarah Palin and has espoused classic right-wing views. But Obama is, at least, giving an audience to his critics,...

    Thousands were descending on the National Mall in Washington on Sunday afternoon, hours before a free inaugural concert boasting big stars. It is President-elect Barack Obama's first full day back in the nation's capital. He spent the morning visiting Arlington National Cemetery and will later attend the "We are One: Opening Inaugural Celebration" at the Lincoln Memorial featuring performances by Beyonce, Sheryl Crow, John Legend, Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, U2, will.i.am and Stevie Wonder. Tears rolled down one woman's face as Obama spoke. "We love you, Obama!" someone yelled out. "I love you back," Obama answered calmly, eliciting a roar...

A store in Seekonk delivered a king-sized bed to the White House Saturday after the Obamas made the purchase a few weeks ago.

According to the Providence Journal, store officials said they were asked to send photos of the beds in stock for the Obamas to check a few...
