AP - Glenn Beck, the man behind Saturday's rally at the site of Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech, has built an empire around his own voice that grew exponentially with his move to Fox News Channel and President Barack Obama's election to the White House.
Democrats want to make it easier for working parents to pay for child care, but congressional Republicans don't think that's a good idea, President Barack Obama told his audience in Columbus, Ohio, on Aug. 18, 2010. Asked whether the government has done anything to reduce child care costs, Obama said, "We have a child care credit in place. We’d like to make it stronger. This is one of those back-and-forths we’ve been having with the Republicans, because we actually think it is a good idea and they don’t. But I think that giving families ...>> More
Until now, Barack Obama has sent Joe Biden out to do all his talking on the economy, attempting to sell “Recovery Summer” while his boss vacations at Martha’s Vineyard, or hangs out with sports heroes, or, er, eats his shrimp.Â Unfortunately for the White House, the economic indicators over the past two months defy any spin whatsoever, especially this month, with home sales cratering and the second quarter GDP getting revised to stagnation levels.Â Â ABC News’ Jake Tapper hears that the White House figures that maybe the President of the United States...
Liberalism under siege is an ugly sight indeed. Just yesterday it was all hope and change and returning power to the people. But the people have proved so disappointing. Their recalcitrance has, in only 19 months, turned the predicted 40-year liberal ascendancy (James Carville) into a full retreat. Ah, the people, the little people, the small-town people, the "bitter" people, as Barack Obama in an unguarded moment once memorably called them, clinging "to guns or religion or" -- this part is less remembered -- "antipathy toward people who aren't like...
Chris Christie is the lead actor in a new movie. It's a short film, no more than 20 minutes or so, yet its backer—the Republican Governors Assn.—expects to reap millions in donations from his brief appearance. The moody film features black-and-white images flashing by—storm clouds, campaign rallies, and urgent news clips from election-night broadcasts. A Republican has won the governor's race in New Jersey, a Democratic stronghold, and the party of Barack Obama has been rendered powerless by his take-no-prisoners style.
Unless you're sworn to spin, it's hard to deny that Barack Obama needs a more compelling message. There's a Politico story - in which I’m quoted - that parades Democrats “from across the party’s ideological spectrum” criticizing the President for his “results-oriented 'pragmatism.’”To attribute the perils now threatening his party and perhaps even his presidency to his pragmatism is a misreading of history and of present events.
Perhaps the Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, spiritual advisor to Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, understands best how so many Americans so quickly come to wrongly believe that Obama is a Muslim. According to the Pew Research Center, one in five believes as much.
Washington, Aug 27: Fewer than half of Americans approve of the job President Barack Obama is doing, but his approval rating is slightly up since last month, a new poll has revealed.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska—A conservative Alaska lawyer credits his primary vote lead over U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski largely to “common sense” voters dissatisfied with the direction taken by Congress and President Barack Obama.
President Barack Obama is a Christian, but a minority of the American public keeps telling pollsters he's a Muslim. The Pew Research Center recently reported that 18 percent of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim, up from 11 percent in March 2009. A Time magazine poll found even more -- 24 percent -- said he was a Muslim. PolitiFact has done extensive fact-checking on Obama's faith and has debunked false claims in chain e-mails that he attended a radical Islamic school, that his political rise mirrored a biblical tale about the ...>> More
The Truth-o-Meter says: Barely True | Graham said the “seed of Islam” passes through the father to Obama. We found widespread disagreement.
President Barack Obama has declared himself a Christian. He has worshipped in Christian churches, prayed with Christian ministers, and recounted how he knelt beneath a cross and felt God's spirit. And yet, a surprising number of Americans keep telling pollsters they believe he's a Muslim. The Pew Research Center last week reported that 18 percent of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim, up from 11 percent in March 2009. A Time magazine poll also released last week found even more — 24 percent – said he was a Muslim. (Read our longer …
