"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

  This of course requires that we all agree on a certain set of facts to debate from, and that is why we need a vibrant and thriving news business that is separate from opinion makers and talking heads.” [ Very, very scary! – JS ]

INCREDIBLE! NASA Chief: One of the Foremost Tasks BHO Gave Me was to Make Muslims “Feel Good” About Themselves [ Also scary.. – JS ]
