    Time to Move Past Debate On Dodd-Frank Law: FDIC's Bair Published: Thursday, 13 Jan 2011 | 10:32 AM ET By: Michelle Lodge CNBC.com Writer Even with the Republicans in control of the House, major changes in the Dodd-Frank financial overhaul law are unlikely and it's time for the country "to get on with it," Sheila Bair, chairwoman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, told CNBC Thursday. “Dodd-Frank gives the regulators a lot of tools to implement them [changes], and we are doing that in a balanced way,” said Bair, speaking from the Small Business Forum in Washington DC, a co-partnership...

    Hawaii governor announces 'exact' place of Obama birth 'Question has been asked and answered, and I think we should all move on now' May 05, 2010 10:13 pm Eastern By Joe Kovacs WorldNetDaily More than a year and half after Barack Obama was elected commander in chief, the governor of Hawaii is now publicly voicing the alleged exact location of Obama's birth, saying "the president was, in fact, born at Kapi'olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii." The disclosure is believed to be the first time a state government official has declared the precise place where Obama was born, despite numerous other...

    In breaking news out of Minnesota, American icon Polariod is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This is a tragedy and should not be allowed to happen! Polariod should be given a bailout! Polaroid is "too big to fail," just like the automakers. Polariod is an American icon, just like the automakers. Wrong. Polaroid is in trouble. Maybe it is because they failed to be on the cutting edge of technology and adapt to the age of digital photography. Maybe it is because they were mismanaged. Maybe competitors just made better products. I have no idea why Polaroid is in...

    WASHINGTON — To hear Hillary Clinton talk, she's spent her entire career putting her Yale Law School degree to work for the common good. She routinely tells voters that she's "been working to bring positive change to people's lives for 35 years." She told a voter in New Hampshire: "I've spent so much of my life in the nonprofit sector." Speaking in South Carolina, Bill Clinton said his wife "could have taken a job with a firm ... Instead she went to work with Marian Wright Edelman at the Children's Defense Fund.".....

    On a July evening 22 years ago, 20-year-old Terry Wallis climbed into a pickup truck with two friends and rode off down a rural Arkansas highway. He never came back -- or, more precisely, he never came back the same. The truck went off a bridge. One of Wallis' friends was uninjured; the other died. Wallis barely made it. First, he was in a coma, then in what doctors called a "vegetative state," and then in what they called a "minimally conscious state." He was paralyzed from the neck down and couldn't talk. His parents assumed legal guardianship from his...

CBS 2 West Suburban Bureau Chief Mike Puccinelli reports on the fight to put the brakes on a scene in the blockbuster animated picture about a fast talking rookie racer named Lightning McQueen.

His 14-year-old daughter, Lauren, was killed in a collision 12 years...

    hereby officially pronounce the conservative movement dead. May it rest in peace. It was killed by its faith in men, not principles – men like George W. Bush. The appointments of John Roberts as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and Harriet Miers as associate justice serve as the epitaphs for the political movement. But even before these betrayals, conservatism was on life support. It could not have survived the irresponsible spending by the Republican Congress, approved by the president during the last five years. The conservative movement, in the best of times, represented a defensive effort to slow...

    President Richard Nixon personally ordered the "third-rate burglary" at the Watergate Hotel in June 1972, a trusted aide has now revealed, resurrecting the scandal that led to Nixon's political ruin and forced him from the nation's highest office. Jeb Stuart Magruder, who was Nixon's assistant communications director before moving to the re-election committee, said he was privy to a telephone conversation between Nixon and John Mitchell, the campaign chairman, in which the president urged Mitchell to proceed with a break-in at the Democratic National Committee offices in the Watergate. The revelation, if true, places the Watergate burglary in a...
