      "WASHINGTON -- Almost four months after his presidential election defeat, Mitt Romney is planning a return to the national political stage.

      The 2012 Republican nominee will appear, with his wife Ann, on Fox News Sunday next weekend, Chris Wallace, the program's host, announced Sunday."

        True, they should all be tuning into MSNBC for the Axelrod/Gibbs hour of unbiased comedy. No - wait, sorry about that, comedy is supposed to be funny, not sad.

      • " intertubes?"

        The messiah needs as much distraction as possible from his "ever-expending" incompetence, especially since he's starting a new secret war close to his "home land" while cutting and running from his "war we have to win"...

        "Opening a new front in the drone wars against Al Qaeda and its affiliates, President Obama announced on Friday that about 100 American troops had been sent to Niger in West Africa to help set up a new base from which unarmed Predator aircraft would conduct surveillance in the region. "

        "U.S. Army brigade will begin sending small teams into as many as 35 African nations early next year, part of an intensifying Pentagon effort to train countries to battle extremists."

        "In pre-dawn darkness, a ­Toyota Land Cruiser skidded off a bridge in North Africa in the spring, plunging into the Niger River. When rescuers arrived, they found the bodies of three U.S. Army commandos — alongside three dead women."

        "the crash in Mali has revealed some details of the commandos’ clandestine activities that apparently had little to do with counterterrorism. The women killed in the wreck were identified as Moroccan prostitutes who had been riding with the soldiers, according to a senior Army official and a U.S. counterterrorism consultant briefed on the incident"

      I've never heard of a "gun causing harm". I have however heard of mental midgets believing an inanimate object is capable of independent action, most are liberal Democrats that also possess other idiotic beliefs such as:

      They put signs in National parks stating that "feeding the bears will result in their becoming dependent on the handouts and stop foraging for themselves; but can't make the same distinction when it comes to food stamps for the lazy". Their solution would probably be to make cars that can't be opened inside a national park, because it's obvious most of the food is brought into the park inside cars.

    • FIRST we need legislative insurance paid by the proglessives, to cover all the "unintended" consequences of their goody-two-shoes meddling in everyday peoples lives. THEN we may or may not need to look into liability insurance for boomerangs, peashooters, slingshots, and rubber bands, as well as beer, mixed drinks, recreational drug use, gum chewing (for people who can't walk and chew gum at the same time), internet posting, community activist protesting, and fornicating. Oh, and possibly firearm ownership, IF they haven't been taxed enough already.

    • "1. Seven Republican governors have agreed to expand their Medicare programs, to better serve their citizens."

      At least one is smart enough to protect his citizens from the messiah's addiction to other people's money...

      "Many Republican governors have done a smart thing -- they are actually including in their proposals what they call a circuit breaker," Spiro said. "If at any future date the federal government lowers its share of the funding then the state would either automatically scale back the coverage or re-examine it."

      Albeit you seem to have left out a headline or two...

      "The CBO's new baseline estimate shows that ObamaCare subsidies offered through the insurance exchanges — which are supposed to be up and running by next January — will total more than $1 trillion through 2022, up from $814 billion over those same years in its budget forecast made a year ago. That's an increase of nearly 29%."

        But, if you like it, you can keep it. A much better solution would be "If I don't like it, I can tell you to keep it"
