So far, though, Limbaugh’s opponents have been disappointed, and an analysis of the math – a very tricky proposition in itself – suggests their goal of running Limbaugh off the air will fall short. (Hollywood Reporter)One New York advertiser, Mark Stevens, went on Fox Business Network to describe the fleck-spittle liberal hatred he's been subjected to...

The Obama recovery has managed just over 2 percent average annual GDP growth.Indeed, take-home pay for US workers, adjusted for rising prices, has actually fallen over the last year. (NY Post)Add in the falling value of our dollars and...
All in all, Obama’s economic rebound kind of feels more like a bust than a boom. (NY Post)
