    New York magazine published an interview with President Obama Sunday night which is really Obama recounting some of the high profile political arguments of his tenure. One of the arguments which gets a lot of space is Obamacare. Here’s a sample picking up from the moment Scott Brown won a special election which ended Democrats’ 60 vote majority in the Senate: The most important phone call I made after that was to Nancy Pelosi, because the question I posed to her and to Harry Reid was, “Are you guys still game? Because if you guys are still game, we’ll find...

According to The New York Times, Sharif El-Gamal said through a spokesman he wants to build a three-story museum "dedicated to exploring the faith of Islam and its arts and culture."

    The developer of the ill-fated Ground Zero Mosque won't relent on his goal of planting a flag on the grave of 3,000 Americans. The New York Post reports that Sharif El-Gamal and his banking partners announced Wednesday that he secured "Sharia-compliant financing" to build a luxury condominium tower and an Islamic museum on the same site as the proposed Ground Zero Mosque -- four blocks away from where the Twin Towers once stood. The $174 million dollar project features a three-story Islamic cultural museum at 51 Park Place and 48 high-end residential condos in a 43-story tower at 45 Park...

    MILWAUKEE - President Barack Obama's Thursday pep rally for Obamacare came with lots of cheering, story-telling, and emotional testimonials - and that was just the mainstream media coverage. But Obama, not surprisingly, failed to mention some of flies in the ointment of his signature Affordable Care Act while congratulating Milwaukee for winning a national health insurance enrollment contest, the "Healthy Communities Challenge." The city beat 19 other cities, adding 38,000 new health insurance participants, out of about 51,000 uninsured people who were eligible to enroll. "I could not be prouder of you. God bless you Milwaukee," the president told an...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Go to the sound bites coming next and you'll hear them: They think they've turned the corner. Like on April 15th, everybody's gonna file their taxes. Is Obama gonna do a Rose Garden ceremony to talk about how persuasive he's been and how many people love the income tax? "My God, look at this, folks! Look at how many have complied this year. Look how many people love the income tax, and the income tax is making our country and a transfer of wealth possible. Look at how many millions and millions and millions of people file...

    INDUSTRY EXPERT: REMINDS PUBLIC OF UNPOPULAR BAILOUT - Barack Obama, who recently stopped by the CIA to thank the agency for its part in the bin Laden mission by referring to himself 35 times, is firing up his next victory tour: Taking personal credit for the unpopular bailouts of General Motors and Chrysler. Ironically, Obamas latest brag-fest may actually end up hurting the two firms, an industry expert told CNSNews.com. While hailing Chryslers repayment of 2009 bailout loans last week, the O-man couldnt help but take credit for the automakers revival. Obama said it was because of his own action...

    Saturday Night Live opened this weeks show with a parody of CNNs The Situation Room, with Jason Sudeikis doing a dead-on impression of Wolf Blitzer reporting on an absurdist version of President Obamas speech in El Paso this week. Lampooning criticism of the Presidents lone, low-key mention of Osama bin Ladens killing, Fred Armisen delivered an over-the-top Obama smoking, trash-talking, and basically letting it all hang out. The President has predictably come under fire for mentioning bin Ladens killing during a speech at a DNC event in El Paso, Texas. During the speech, someone in the crowd shouted, Thank...

    US President Barack Obama was willing to risk a military confrontation with Pakistan in order to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, the New York Times reported revealing additional details about the US raid on his hideout. Obama insisted that the assault force hunting down the al Qaeda leader be large enough to fight its way out of Pakistan if confronted by hostile local police officers and troops, the influential US daily said on Monday citing senior administration and military officials. Two teams of specialists were on standby: One to bury bin Laden if he was killed, and a second...

    Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is doing a great job, according to none other than himself. Geithner essentially patting himself on the back at a Bloomberg Breakfast event in Washington on Wednesday, saying: "The core of the American financial system is in a much stronger position than it was before the crisis." Geithner has a point: U.S. banks made $87.5 billion in last year, the highest since 2007, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., Bloomberg reports. Of course, as Henry points out in the clip, if the system is indeed safer, it's solely because Geithner, his predecessor Hank Paulson and...
