A quick trip around Hannity's America...

Times Are Changing

President Obama spoke to the nation in front of an audience of his closest friends Wednesday: the White House Press Corps!

Once again he was quite selective in who he called on. For example, rather than taking questions from an actual news outlet like, oh, I don't know, FOX News, he called on somebody from the entertainment channels.

In the end, of all the 13 questions he answered, the one that stole the show was this hardball from the always Obama-friendly New York Times:


JEFF ZELENY, NEW YORK TIMES: During these first 100 days, what has surprised you the most about this office, enchanted you the most about serving in this office, humbled you the most and troubled you the most?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: All right. Let me write this down.


Now let's compare that to how The New York Times would use these events to slam George W. Bush. Here was their last attempt to get him at President Bush's final press conference:


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I'm not trying to play gotcha, but I wonder when you look back over the long arc of your presidency, do you think in retrospect that you have made any mistakes, and if so what is the single biggest mistake that you may have made?


Congratulations to that New York Times reporter Wednesday night. At least he didn't even make an attempt to hide his admiration of the anointed one.

Grading Obama

Everyone seems to have an opinion about President Obama's first 100 days and the San Francisco speaker is no different. In Liberal Translation, Nancy Pelosi unveils her report card on the Obama administration:


SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE NANCY PELOSI, D-CALIF.: It's a budget that reduces taxes, lowers the deficit, and creates jobs.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: A $3.4 trillion budget lowers the deficit? I'm a riot! I wonder if anyone is buying this?

PELOSI: It's a budget that is marked by its transparency as it honors the three pillars of the Obama — of the Obama initiative — energy, health care and education.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: Transparency is important. We want you to have a front row seat as we waste your money.

PELOSI: And those issues are issues that had been the hallmark of the first 100 days. Someone asked me what I — what mark would I give the president in his first 100 days.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: Anyone have a guess?

PELOSI: I'd definitely give the president an "A."



Believe it or not. I give the president an "A" too. An "A" for arrogance and an "A" for his apology tour.

Tell-All Book

Details of former presidential candidate John Edwards' extramarital affair have been splashed in the headlines of the National Enquirer for years. But now his wife is breaking her silence and is telling all in a new book called "Resilience" set to debut early next month.

In it, Elizabeth Edwards gives an absolutely chilling account of the moment her husband finally told her about his affair. When she found out, she said, "I cried and screamed, I went to the bathroom and threw up."

But even after the former senator came clean to her about the affair, he continued to lie to the American people, and in fact, announced he was running for president of the United States. Elizabeth Edwards called his candidacy a mistake, saying, "He should not have run."

Edwards does not mention her husband's mistress by name in the book and calls her a pathetic groupie. Nor does she mention the widely reported accusation that Edwards is the father of the mistress' baby.

One thing is clear: John Edwards should be ashamed of himself for putting his wife and his children through this.
