ALL's Judie Brown on Sen. Brownback: "I'll never use 'pro-life' to describe him again" Sen. Brownback congratulates Sebelius, pro-Lifers stunned: lifesitenews.com
Laura Ingraham ripped Senators Sam Brownback and Pat Roberts today for supporting Kathleen Sebelius' nomination for Secretary of Health and Human Services. She supports the notorious late-term abortion specialist George Tiller and has been shielding him from scrutiny.
I took some heat for supporting Romney over Brownback because (a) I was willing to accept that Romney had changed his position on life issues, (b) I couldn't support a candidate who wanted defeat in Iraq.

Obama Says Now May Be Good Time to Invest in Stocks: Bloomberg
March 3 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama said falling share prices may mean bargains for investors with a “long-term perspective.”The Dow Jones Industrial average on election day was 9625, on the day where President Obama made this announcement the DJIA was 6730, a drop of 30 percent and in round numbers 3000 points.
When does President Obama take responsibility for the economy?
The market is continuously adjusting to and taking into account what the policies are and will be. It is predicting doom at the moment. President Hoover thought that stocks were a bargain after the crash. This one case where President Obama doesn't want to be compared to a prior president.

Michael Steele hopes the Obama agenda succeeds and, by the way, Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer
WASHINGTON — The new chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michael Steele, apologized to Rush Limbaugh on Monday after describing him in a television interview over the weekend as an “entertainer” who made incendiary and sometimes ugly remarks, party officials said.What Steele said can't be taken back. "...Rush Limbaugh, the whole thing is entertainment. Yes, it’s incendiary. Yes, it’s ugly."
That quote is going to used by Dems to drive a wedge between the Conservative movement and the Republican party until Steele's term is over or Rush is off the air.
Rather than damaging Rush, it backfired on Steele. He's lost what limited credibility he had with the conservative movement. He's got to have spend time getting some trust back -- so does he want Obama's agenda to succeed? Is he so inarticulate that he can't separate the country, from its government, and from the current administration?
What Steele needs to do as RNC Chairman is end the open primary in states where the party can do so, and, above all, stop New Hampshire and South Carolina from being the first primary states.
My suggestion (actually, I forgot who came up with this...) is to have a lottery between Thanksgiving 2011 and January 1, 2012 and pick the first primary states at random.
Part of the reason why Rush has 20 million listeners is not as he sarcastically suggested his song and dance routines, but his political insights.
