    Pope Francis' meeting last week with an American woman at the center of a row over gay marriage was not something he had sought and should not be seen as an endorsement of her views, the Vatican said on Friday. One Vatican official said there was "a sense of regret" that the pope had ever seen Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk who went to jail in September for refusing to honor a U.S. Supreme Court ruling and issue same-sex marriage licenses. The encounter in Washington was originally kept secret and has sparked widespread debate since it became public this...

    “I’ve paid my taxes, obeyed the laws and have been a good citizen supporting the community with donations,” the former SCE worker wrote. “I voted for President Obama and was appalled that he implemented a rule change, which allows work permits to H-1B spouses. My future votes will only go to candidates that support reforms to the H-1B visa program that preserve the American worker.”
  • Ed Henry to Earnest: Does Obama Regret Calling Bush "Unpatriotic" For Adding $4 Trillion To

    At Friday's White House press briefing, FOX News' Ed Henry asked press secretary Josh Earnest if President Obama had any regrets about calling then-President Bush "unpatriotic" for adding $4 trillion to the national debt when he was a Senator running for president. Henry's question followed Earnest's response to Rudy Giuliani's comment that President Obama doesn't love America. Earnest said he felt "sorry" for Giuliani and said the former NYC mayor has tarnished his legacy. "Josh, given your sorrow for Rudy Giuliani do you think the president has any regrets about saying President Bush was unpatriotic for adding $4 trillion to...

    Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said Tuesday that he regrets saying that aspects of Obamacare needed to be concealed from the public due to the “stupidity of the American voter.” “Do you stand by the comments in that video?,” MSNBC host Ronan Farrow asked Gruber, referring to a video of Gruber explaining how a lack of transparency helped Obamacare pass into law. “The comments in the video were made at an academic conference,” Gruber said. “I was speaking off the cuff and I basically spoke inappropriately and I regret having made those comments.” Farrow then argued on Gruber’s behalf that

    What do Toni Braxton, Sharon Osbourne, Sherri Shepherd, Sinead O’Connor, Stevie Nicks, and Charlotte Dawson have in common? They’ve all had abortions. Sharon Osbourne, reality star and talent-show judge on the British X Factor TV show, suffered three miscarriages due to damage to her cervix after having had an abortion at age 17. She recounted: “I had an abortion at 17 and it was the worst thing I ever did . . . I went alone. I was terrified. It was full of other young girls, and we were all terrified and looking at each other and nobody was saying...

The coffee giant CEO said in a statement that the way the bill is written under the current guidelines, the pressure on small business because of the mandate is “too great.” Martha MacCallum spoke to Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former director of the Congressional Budget Office and president of the American Action Forum about Schultz’s statement and the impact to small business owners.

    ( -- Former House Speaker New Gingrich (R-Ga.), a likely 2012 presidential candidate, told today that he does not regret supporting the enactment of the Medicare prescription drug plan which now presents the federal government with a $7.2 trillion unfunded liability. An unfunded liability is a benefit the federal government has promised to pay that is not matched by tax revenue to fund it and thus represents an anticipated increase in the national debt.

    North Korea expresses regret at civilian deaths Sat, 27 Nov 2010 13:23:03 GMT Seoul - North Korea on Saturday expressed its regret at the civilian deaths from its shelling of a South Korean island earlier in the week, but then blamed the south for provoking the incident and accused it of using human shields. In a comment via the state-run KCNA news agency, Pyongyang accused the south of using civilians as human shields on Yeonpyeong island and remarked on the reports of civilian deaths. "If that is true, it is very regrettable, but the enemy should be held responsible for...

    Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal finally apologized for having lied about his Vietnam-era military service. Well, sort of. He e-mailed a Hartford newspaper expressing "regret [for] offending anyone." And then, only after the paper asked the Democratic US Senate candidate flat-out whether he intended to apologize. The New York Times last week disclosed that Blumenthal has often claimed to have served in Vietnam when, in fact, he received five deferments, then enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserves for stateside service. In his e-mail to the Hartford Courant, Blumenthal -- who over the weekend accepted the Democratic nomination to succeed Sen....

    The following statement is by Richard DiFederico, Department Commander of Connecticut’s largest war veterans’ organization, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States: “Those who served in Vietnam or offshore or in neighboring countries rightfully earned all the belated thanks and appreciation our nation can muster. Those who served in uniform during the Vietnam era also deserve our gratitude, which makes Mr. Blumenthal's claim to be something he is not so outrageous. It diminishes the service of all who served and sacrificed, most especially those whose names are inscribed on the Vietnam Wall. Mr. Blumenthal was considered one of...

From, March 8, with the objective headline, "Don't look now: You may not like the ads you see"...Starting this week, the NYC subway system will be flooded with a massive ad campaign that addresses a touchy subject: abortion. The 2k ads, which straphangers will see in nearly every subway station beginning tomorrow, depict either a woman saying, "I thought life would be the way it was before," or a man saying, "I often wonder if there was something I could have done to help her."

    TEHRAN (AFP) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned on Tuesday that world powers would regret any moves to slap new sanctions on Iran, while stressing that Tehran was still ready for a UN-brokered nuclear fuel deal. His latest salvo came as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton toured the Gulf to seek backing for possible sanctions against Iran for defiantly pursuing its nuclear programme. "If anybody seeks to create problems for Iran, our response will not be like before," Ahmadinejad told a packed news conference in Tehran. "Something in response will be done which will make them (the world powers) regret"...

    Another Obama voter is coming clean, admitting their 'buyer's remorse'. A Real Clear Politics article by Jill Dorson, today, candidly reveals and expresses the disappointment, disillusion, and heartfelt regret felt for having voted for, and being suckered into, the Obama "euphoria" and "hope and change" rhetoric. As you'll see, she is not a Sarah Palin fan, suggesting that her supposed lack of intelligence kept her from voting for John McCain in 2008. I'm always amazed and confused that someone would state that, yet not be turned off by Joe Biden's clear, documented buffoonery. Nevertheless, the article reeks of genuineness and...

    I am a registered Independent. I voted for Barack Obama. And for that, I am sorry. I'm not sorry for you. I'm sorry for me. Because I voted for Obama for me, not for you. I voted for hope and change and all the intangibles that Obama was peddling in the wake of the financial crisis, Sarah Palin, Sept. 11 and all the other ills that shook our country in the last decade. I wanted something new. Something different. What I got was, I suppose, exactly what I voted for - a spin doctor. And not a very good one...
