It doesn't matter what party they belong to - Throw them all out at the next opportunity!

I agree, although with some reservations. No matter who ultimately comes forward, a conservative version of Obama would draw out from liberals many of the same arguments we had against BO. She/He would certainly have to be extensively vetted.

I like Palin, but right now she is somewhat "damaged goods," and still a lightening rod for liberal attacks. Another poster (barbarian?) commented that (paraphrasing here) he believes that she resigned largely for the sake of the citizens of Alaska - that she was becoming too much of a distraction, and losing some of her effectiveness. I want to believe that, but time will tell.

There's a lot of talk about her writing a book, going on the speech circuit, or doing a talk show to help cover her legal expenses. I hope she can stay on message. I believe that she will run in 2012, but unless she can get rid of some of her baggage, she won't stand a chance. However, she may still be able to play a role as King- (or Queen-) maker during the primaries.

Very, very moving. Thank you for posting. This video shows how everyday Americans support these men and women who protect us and others around the world. God bless them all.

Thank you Staff Sergeant Beale for your ultimate sacrifice. My prayers go out to his family and friends.

I think all Fox news people can be reached through TheFoxNation.com.

Kudos on your post.

This is the same stupid response I got. Obviously, his "mind" is made up (actually closed) and he's unlikely to change.

This Obama-a$$-kissing bozo has got to go. Unfortunately, I think we're stuck with him until 2014.

Thank you for your service.

I was very fortunate to retire when I did, about 3 years ago. Since then, the bank I worked for (27+ years) essentially failed and was bought out. Had I stayed, I most certainly would have been let go by now. I lost a lot when the market dropped last year, but escaped before it got too bad for me. I try to stay healthy, live frugally - small home, older cars, limited travel with my wife of 40 years. I get by, but still worry about how BO's policies are hurting America. I'm mostly worried for my grandchildren, and that they will never be able to enjoy life as I've known it.

Stay strong! Good luck to you, friend.

I look at other countries around the globe, and see the unrest and turmoil. I am awed by the bravery of the Iranian people who took to the streets after their recent election. I can't imagine such a display in our own country. I hope it never comes to that.

A few things to celebrate -
We are still a FREE people.
We can worship as we choose.
We can live wherever in the country we choose.
We have the power to elect our own leaders, and the means to replace those who don't do what they should.
Our standard of living surpasses that of people in most other countries.
We are the most generous country in the world, opening our doors and wallets to others.
We still have the strongest (I think) military in the world.
Many, many more............

I'm sure you can find some other things to celebrate, perhaps something with your family and friends, your own achievements, or even your favorite sports team. Hold onto your precious memories of D.C. and the 200th birthday. Hang in there. "This too shall pass."

Best wishes and good luck to you.

I have some family in CA, and I wonder how they are coping. The Cleveland, Ohio area where I live is not faring much better. Unemployment is high, and one son-in-law has been out of work for almost 3 months. Our state also has a deficit, but thankfully, it's not as great as CA and some others. I'm sure we'll see some cuts to various programs, and most likely some additional taxes. I plan to oppose the taxes as much as possible, but I'm resigned to the fact that some will pass. I will also do what I can to effect a change in leadership at the Governor's level as well as our local representatives. One small sign of progress was voting out the current mayor of our suburb.

Even with all that though, I am still proud to live in this country. I try to take a "glass half full" approach as much as possible. I am glad that I joined this 912 group, and can exchange comments with people like yourself about everyday events. I'm also fortunate that I'm now retired, and have the time to read some of the books recommended by Beck and others, and I am much more comfortable and confident discussing events with others.
