I also want her to live because a living Sarah Palin is less dangerous than a dead one."a dead Palin is more dangerous than a live one," he wrote.(Horrigan is not to be...

Several House Democrats went further, flat-out urging the New York congressman to resign."He's somebody who's at the end of his career," Obama said in an interview that aired Friday on "CBS Evening News with Katie Couric." "I'm sure that what he wants is to be able to end his career with dignity. And my hope is that it happens."Obama, speaking on the issue for the first time, praised the 20-term...

    WASHINGTON - At a precarious moment in the war in Afghanistan, President Barack Obama prepared to hear his top war commander explain biting published complaints about the commander in chief and his aides. Even before their showdown, the White House's rebuke of Gen. Stanley McChrystal suggested it would be hard for him to save his job. Ahead of his meeting with the president, McChrystal arrived at the Pentagon for meetings, including once scheduled with Defense Secretary Robert Gates. On his arrival, he denied to NBC News that he's offered his resignation. "Come on, you know better than that. No!"

A wide variety of commentators have observed that Obama displays severe narcissism. Obama is conceited, and he is demonstrating a serious disassociation from reality. A recent case in point was Obama's bizarre and meandering 17-minute, 2,500-word answer to the simple question about how he could justify raising taxes for ObamaCare during a recession when citizens are already overtaxed.

    In light of the leftwing whackjobs' anger with Speaker Pelosi, shortly before 5pm today, I phoned the Speaker's district office in San Francisco. Identifying myself as writing a story for the website "freerepublic," I asked, "In light of some of some of the calls for resignation on various blogs and websites over the Speaker's knowledge about waterboarding, can the Speaker confirm or deny any intent to resign her position?" The female hack who answered the phone wasn't particular appreciative of the question and directed me to speaker.gov. "No direct comments?" No -- go to speaker.gov.........click. For your amusement, and this...

    AXcess News) New York - Congresswoman Mary Fallin (R-OK) said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is "out of touch with mainstream America" if she believes that returning war veterans and people who believe in the Second Amendment pose a terrorism threat to the nation.

"First she approved a report that implied members of the armed forces returning from combat would follow in the footsteps of Timothy McVeigh. Then she insulted our friends in Canada by falsely claiming the 9/11 terrorists came from there. Is this...

    To the American People, It is with great sadness; remorse and regret that I had my teleprompter compose this message for you today. I have failed as a President. I have no choice but to admit that. I have just completed my first 100 days in office and I have done nothing but weaken and demean the office of the President and this nation. This office was once a sacred place, a place full of rich and storied history and I have turned it into a laughing stock, a joke and a boil on the behind of this nation. President...

    Here is a message forwarded to me. Why am I not surprised? Mr. Obama, It is clear that you are irresponsible. While the rest of the country is tightening their belts, you turn up the thermostat in the White House - on our dime. When things go wrong around you, you throw your people under the bus instead of taking responsibility for your own failures. It is clear that you are incompetent. Instead of seriously considering every option, you automatically rule out useful and valid tools for managing the current financial crisis, like tax cuts which you say have failed...

    Have we seen anything in the MSM about pressure on Rahm Emanuel to resign? Nothing from the L.A. Times. Or the New York Times. But the U.K. and Australian papers often print stories their liberal American cousins will not. And they think something is afoot. More . . .
