President Obama invited several members of the media — notably, the more liberal members — for an off-the-record, behind-the-scenes chance to chat about Obamacare, in what some are describing as a Hail Mary attempt to do some much-needed damage control.
Chris Christie is an "excellent politician" who could easily win the Republican nod for the White House in 2016, left-leaning comedian Bill Maher told MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell on Tuesday.
New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner's last-ditch television attempt to scrounge up support for his flagging bid fell flat Monday evening — and that's probably an understatement. The interview with MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell progressed into a shouting match that lasted for minutes, sparked in part by the host's blunt opening question: "What is wrong with you?"
Six months ago, the nation was horrified that a deranged man entered Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 20 young children and six educators.
Barack Obama says he is angry about the Internal Revenue Service singling out conservative and Tea Party groups for rough treatment, even though it may or may not have something to do with an anti-Muslim video.
Suspected Boston Marathon terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev was buried at an undisclosed location, and the Benghazi whistleblowers testified under oath before Congress. On the international stage, there are reports that Pope Emeritus Benedict is shrinking due to poor health. One Archbishop said in an interview with a German Catholic News Agency: “He looked like he had halved in size.” Here's a recap, or wrap, on the week that was from The Washington Times.
HBO host Bill Maher and MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell seemed to agree Friday night that it's ridiculous for Americans to think the Second Amendment can protect them from tyranny.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell gave a laudatory eulogy for the late Margaret Thatcher Monday night, praising the former British prime minister for being "a good socialist."
A sampling of celebrity tweets in response to Clint Eastwood's odd conversation with an invisible President Barack Obama in an empty chair before the Republican National Convention on Thursday:
Susan G. Komen's short-lived decision to drop grants to Planned Parenthood was met with fury from the left wing, and its outrage was immediately reported by the liberal news media. But it wasn't the first time Komen had been attacked from the left.
Cable news networks brought new toys and new people to the 2012 presidential campaign's opening night in Iowa, yet the tight race made it a struggle for viewers to make sense of it all.

Things have gone from bad to badder for the self-righteous artsy-fartsy elites, who for all their book-learning and self-regard just can't figure out America. The Herman Cain phenomenon is the latest puzzlement of those who think only they're wise enough and entitled enough to tell the rest of us which fork to use.
"Ninety percent of success is showing up," Woody Allen once observed. This helps explain why Herman Cain is soaring and Rick Perry has gone as flat as the Texas plains.
As an observer on the national scene lo these many years, I have noted time and again that in a discussion of politics, the first person to inject the topic of race into the discussion is often the racist. Though that person almost always affects to be without bigotry, in fact, he invariably is a racist and hopes to emerge from the fracas as the moral colossus. Those who have followed the careers of the Rev. Jesse Jackson and his Holiness Al Sharpton will get my drift. These frauds would have to be debating George Wallace to be the lesser racists and, frankly, I think the contests would be too close to call.
"I do not believe what the IRS was reported to have been doing is an outrage," Mr. O'Donnell said. "I believe that the IRS agents in this case did nothing wrong. Let me say it again; you won't hear it anywhere else."

And what you have in terms of gun sales is simply fanatic collectors. People have 48 guns where they used to have four. And that's how you get gun sales in this country, not by getting new buyers."
