Paul Ryan rejects the narrative being pushed by the liberal media that his proposal to reform Medicare is toxic for the Republican Party. “Demagoguery can work for a short period of time, but it doesn’t last because the truth comes out,” he told Human Events. “Time is on our side. Truth and the facts are on our side, and all we have to do is get the truth out there.”So far, it seems, the GOP has done a good job of preaching to the choir through conservative oriented Web sites and publications. But I haven't seen any significant attempt by the GOP to publicize their proposals in the popular media. The press, with its decidedly leftist bias can't be relied upon to do that. So, it is up to the GOP and their candidates/officeholders to do it. The question is: Will they?

2008 was a good year for Barack Obama. He won the election and became the first black president, after all. And even though it’s now 2011, it seems 2008 is still at the forefront of Obama’s mind. See, while on his state visit in London today, Obama signed the guest book at the famed Westminster Abbey, but he didn’t date it May 24, 2011 — instead he put “24 May 2008”:Is this so surprising? Our president has no thoughts of his own. There was no teleprompter.
So, where was his mind when he signed the register? Probably not on the present. Even a dog can achieve that.

Yesterday, President Obama called on Israel to go back to its borders of 1967, which put the Jewish State at just 9 miles wide. Netanyahu immediately rejected that call yesterday and rejected it again in front of the world today.It's unusual for a guest to the White House to air opposition to the US president in front of the press. But, this is different.
“Israel cannot go back to 1967 lines,” Netanyahu said. “We can’t go back to the indefensible lines.”
America can claim a long line of respectable men holding the office of President. Straight talking men who honor the office. B. Hussein Obama is not one of them.
