The claim ignores US military air bases with fighter support, en-route. Like Sigonella NAS, Italy, 420 miles from Aviano and 1 hour flight from Libya. WIth all due respect to Brig. Gen. Scott Zobrist, his claim of 20 hours to get fighters in place, does not wash.
It's interesting that no one mentions Sigonella Naval Air Station, in Sicily. It's about 1 hour flight from Libya, and there's fighters on station there. It's a 430 mile trip from Aviano Italy, down to Sig, even idling along that's less than 2 hours. For a military commander to claim that it would take 20 hours to get from Aviano to Benghazi is ludicrous.
An apology is just more carbon dumped into the atmosphere :) If Colorado gets rid of their Bloomberg-paid for gun legislation, the politicans who voted for it could claim that they have the integrity to admit when they made a mistake and reversed it because their top priority is what's the people of Colorado want. I doubt this will happen, so I hope Coloradans have the integrity to make their displeasure clear at the ballot box for years to come.
I took the time to read the original article that Greenberg is catapulting from, and it's excellent. While the names of Florence King and Dorothy Parker (mentioned in the article) rings a bell, both escape my memory. It makes me feel so intellectually impoverished that I shall have to enrich myself in the coming hour by correcting this oversight. The indictment of Ann is an indictment of our modern culture. Ann is not the cause, she's the symptom and it's telling that she's good friends with Bill Maher. We are so far from where we should be. We have not culturally or even intellectually progressed, we have devolved and that's what Ms. King shined a spotlight on.
"Rep Presidential candidate" Typing too fast, sorry about that.
Goldwater was Conservative, Reagan was Conservative. Every other Rep President since Eisenhower has been not been Conservative. The TEA Party are Conservatives. Not Corporatist Republicans. The TEA Party doesn't care about Dem or Rep, they care about Conservative principles wherever they find them. Morning Joe is right; the TEA Party are the real RINOs.
The Republican Party has been undercutting and attacking the TEA Party at every turn, and deliberately minimized or completely withheld support for TEA Party candidates in the 2012 and 2013 elections. The Republican Party does not 'have the TEA Party' any more, except maybe, by default. And the TEA Party isn't about default voting.

Roberts' Ruling Took Guts

We cannot ignore the fact that Roberts said that it is NOT the SCOTUS' place to protect the people of the United States from political folly. When it was time to stand up and act with integrity, Roberts 'abstained'. The final decision was 5-4, which means that Kagen did NOT recuse herself, and was not recused by Roberts. We cannot ignore the fact that Obamacare was presented to the SCOTUS, not as a tax, but as a mandated fee. The Administration argued that. Roberts decided for them that it's a tax. Since when does the SCOTUS get tor redefine legislation that's before them so that they can then give it a pass? SCOTUS Chief Justice Roberts is a coward. I want him impeached and removed. I seriously do. It won't happen, but it should.

Throwing the truth out in the open, in a mocking fashion to make it something to laugh at.... accusing others of precisely what they're doing... that's a standard Liberal Progressive tactics. Obama knows precisely what 'Forward!' means. Never doubt that. And he's laughing.

It's only the Left that retaliates like that against anyone who dares to disagree with them. Boortz is right, the same thing happens all the time to Conservatives who work for businesses owned by Liberal Progressives; if they're discovered to be Conservative, they'll soon find themselves out of a job. Leftists do not tolerate dissent, they never have.
