Huckabee – Whose Son Tortured and Killed a Dog – Should Avoid Bashing the Obamas’ Parenting Skills
The former Fox host also disparaged the Obama girls' healthy diet, even though both his sons were morbidly obese

Fox News fired Mike Huckabee from his job as a chatshow host last week when he revealed he was testing the waters for another presidential run. (Interesting to know that Fox has some ethics.)

GOP Flip Flops from ‘Freedom Fries’ to Francophiles

It’s well-established by now that, with the possible exception of agreeing to being lynched on the White House lawn, there is virtually nothing Pres. Obama could do that Republicans would support.

Obama Has Now Added More Than Twice as Many Jobs Than Bush Did by His Sixth Year in Office
Krugman: Pres. Obama has 'added 6.7 million jobs since he took office, compared with just 3.1 million at this point under President George W. Bush'
