Is there a petition to the White House to change the name from Detroit to Obamagrad?

Obama has only been in office for 4 years. Detroit was going downhill for many years before that.

How many Americans has he had arrested an summarily executed , and how many churches and synangogues has he had closed ? How many guns has he confiscated ? Zero . Why haven't you been executed for speaking out against him ?

No one would be worse than Obama...well maybe "Ohgogetajob" from Iran.

It isn't often that you get reading suggestions from a United States senator, but that's what happened this past weekend for those who attended the National Review Institute's summit meeting in Washington, D.C.

The three-day conclave, part election post-mortem and part revival meeting (that is, reviving conservatism and America), featured a bracing dose of conservative intellectuals along with activists, campaign professionals and office holders. Newly minted Senator Ted Cruz of Texas spoke in his characteristic fashion -- fluidly without notes or podium.

Cruz, while praising Mitt Romney in general and acknowledging that anyone can have a slip of the tongue, zeroed...
