really? i don't see this. i think they are far, far tougher on Obama than on the GOP, because the MSM is so terrified of being called "liberal" or "biased" that they overcompensate.

Fox has pulled the entire media to the right, and that's their biggest achievement.

Let's see...

How about 'not fixing in one year all the things Bush screwed up in eight'?

That Gibbs does seem like a bit of a jerk. I doubt that Obama wanted him to do that

From the new Sarah Palin poll

"Nearly two-thirds of those polled say they know just some, very little or nothing about what the tea party movement stands for. About one in eight says they know "a great deal" about the positions of tea party groups, but the lack of information does not erase the appeal: About 45 percent of all Americans say they agree at least somewhat with tea partiers on issues, including majorities of Republicans and independents.

The movement's supporters were identified as, "overwhelmingly white, mostly conservative and generally disapproving of Obama."

If we're referring to the same AQ terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, of the Detroit variety, then yes.

"Torture" is out under President Obama.
Indefinite detention is still in, anywhere but Guantanamo.

Maybe you didn't get the memo?

you said you'd deviate from both Pres Obama and Bush.

again: what would you do? i know you dislike that "law-enforcement approach."

(also, no need for the quotes -- everyone defines waterboarding as torture, no matter what John Yoo wrote in a memo somewhere).
