I can't help but wonder if Obama is going to grow a pair and push the trade deficit issue-which topped a record $268 billion in 2008.
All in the name of civil debate and respectful discourse:
(AUDIO) The House passes the Health Control repeal bill; the vote was 245 to 189. In the spirit of the new tone Rep. Cohen likens the GOP to Nazis.
(AUDIO) And Democratic Calif. Congressman John Garamendi says repeal will kill Americans.
(AUDIO) Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), in a speech on the House floor about the rhetoric surrounding Republicans' bill to undo the new reform law, said repeal would result in more deaths in the U.S.
Lieberman is retiring in 2012. Am I supposed to be sad about that?
(AUDIO) Interesting that when "News Nation" host Tameron Hall wanted to frame the discussion about U.S. commerce with China she chose to start out by slamming American business.
Hall echoed Ratigan's sentiments and then took them a step further, musing that "some say" the meeting is an opportunity for Obama to "reach out" to businesses that "in some ways demonized this administration, saying that it's 'anti-business'."
"There's a huge profit engine" in companies doing much of their manufacturing in China, Ratigan opined. To re-balance America's trade relationship with China, he added, would induce some conflict with major American companies.
(AUDIO) Michael Moore says we own guns 'cause we're just a bunch of racists, afraid of the black man.
