MSNBC Anchors Wonder: Is It Disrespectful to Call Obama "Obama"

At Hot Air, Allahpundit calls it “manufactured-grievance theater for the progressive faithful.” Indeed. The most nauseating bit of the segment, beyond the entire premise, was the suggestion by Krystal Ball that Obama has somehow been disrespected more than past Presidents. To which I respond with this: Remember all the smarmy, childish nicknames the left had

Obama Administration: We Can Use "Executive Action" To Implement Gun Control

Remember when liberals were flipping out about a “war on women” because certain Republican candidates didn’t think abortion was ok in instances of rape?

Obama, who made women’s issues a core of his reelection bid, has nominated men to serve in three of his most prominent national security positions, including secretary of state, where Sen. John F.

Obama: "We Don't Have A Spending Problem"
