No, I did not watch the infomercial for Obama’s health care reform, but I have been wanting to say this.
According to President Obama,
“If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period.”
Last night, [...]

The first two “Top Headlines” on my Google homepage:
Iran police ‘use gas’ on protesters
Obama tells men what kind of dads they should be
That reminds me, the ever-funny right-wing humor blog IMAO has a list of the “Top Ten Reasons Obama Hasn’t Spoken Out About Iran.”
My fav is #7.

Sometimes, if I have a long drive to take in the afternoon, I will put on Rush Limbaugh to see what he’s talking about.
One day, he was talking about the Obama personal finance plan, or something like that.  He said that you should not try to get your spending under control, but continue to spend [...]

When I saw the headline on my news feed, I thought, this must be FOX News.  But, no, it was the AP.

They Hate Him Because He Is “Black,” reads the headline of a post from Daily Kos, reprinted on the blog Green Mountain Daily.
I was about to dismiss it entirely, as I think is the proper response at this point to the accusations of racism that follow every single criticism of President Obama by anyone on [...]

I predict President Obama’s approval rating will take a serious hit when people tune in to American Idol Tuesday only to find the president giving another TelePrompter reading speech.  I thought he was supposedly in touch with the American people.
Hey, maybe Fox will let us call in with our votes at the end of the [...]

I am not trying to be snarky; this is pretty serious.  There is a reason that experience matters.
Allies of Mr Obama say his weary appearance in the Oval Office with Mr Brown illustrates the strain he is now under, and the president’s surprise at the sheer volume of business that crosses his desk.
What exactly did [...]

The White House on Wednesday admitted that their public comments about conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh and cable news personalities in recent days has been “counterproductive.”
Counterproductive?  That’s not quite the word I would use.
This Rush Limbaugh episode is pretty disturbing.  Even though the White House is trying to be dismissive and even claim that President [...]

I have seen this video all over the blogosphere this afternoon of some guy named Julio, who asked President Obama a question at his town meeting today in Ft. Myers.

I just cannot believe that this guy is for real.  I think this has to be some kind of prankster.  It seems too over the top, [...]
