In politics, stating the obvious creates a firestorm. Mitt Romney does it again as he explains the Democratic system of winning votes – using tax payer dollars to pay off their special interest voters. Chuck Todd offers the NBC/MSNBC response.


The cheap little games the president plays anger me. His job is to run the country in our best interest, not trick us. In his press conference yesterday, he continued the ruse that UN Ambassador Susan Rice wasn’t part of the Benghazi coverup when she pretended that the killings at the consulate were part of […]

To put you in a good mood for the day, I offer you this.
