    when I said that I didn't care what Obama did on health care, cap and trade, Iraq, Afghanistan or torture, if he picks a lousy Secretary of the Army, I'm outta here!

    Umm, that's PRESIDENT Obama and SENATOR Franken, mr. o'reilly.

      open your mind or someone else will open it for you, but be careful you don't open it too much for you brain to fall out.

      We're still in Iraq and he just asked for a Supplemental to pay for it. He doesn't support the public option in health care. He is ramping it up in Afghanistan. He is waffling on torture so bad it's obvious to the entire world that he really, really, really doesn't want to do anything about it.
      And is it really so wrong to expect a damn Democratic president to hire some damn Democrats???

        But I strongly agree with you.  Along those same lines, I would like to add that he is endorsing a Republican, Arlen Specter, in the Democratic primary in PA, and, in effect, trying to push good Democratic candidates out of the running.  In other words, he and Biden and Rendell are trying to prevent the people of Pennsylvania from choosing the best Democrat from running for that seat.  If they have their way, the choices in the general election for the people of PA will be a wingnut and a DINO.  How's that for fairness and democracy?
