It's the typical attitude/arrogance displayed by liberal minorities--that if you're conservative, you're a sellout or an "Uncle Tom". It's old and it's tired. They just can't stand diverse opinions. Ironic too that an arrogant prick likes Sanchez would think that FOX would even want him. Considering their consistent No. 1 ratings, the idea that Sanchez is even on FOX's radar is funny at best.
Did you know that if you're Hispanic and work for the Fox News Channel, you're a sellout?
Well, that's what CNN's Rick Sanchez amazingly believes.
if i didn't believe in doing right thing, i'd be rich anchoring at fox news
do u know how much money i'd make if i'd sold out as hispanic and worked at fox news, r u kidding, one problem, looking in mirror
me? what? i live in burbs, wife, four kids, dog, turtle.. two jobs... yeah... i'm a real rich guy, right?
@lomeinie fox in prime time is not news, not even close. i'm a newsman. where's the paradox?
@Garfug he asked if fox gave me a million. i say no where near enough
Readers should be advised that this is the same man who blamed Fox News and conservative talkers for the cop killings in Pittsburgh back in April, and earlier this month asked if Sarah Palin was resigning as Alaska governor because she was pregnant again.
Yeah, Rick...you're a "newsman."
Exit question: regardless what he's making, who thinks Sanchez is WAY overpaid?
As a wise Latina woman, I have no comment other than to say...
...if I were Rick Sanchez, I wouldn't look in the mirror, period.
While I still find that Prof. Gates was a victim of racial profiling, Barry knows now that he went too far in sticking his nose in this matter. Granted, racial profiling continues to be a problem in this country esp. when it comes to law enforcement and people of color. And I'm glad that Prof. Gates is going to continue to talk about his incident as well as racial profiling in this country in general. That needs to happen. But Barry wasn't there and considering how much 5-0 is lining up to throw darts at him, he probably would've been better off saying nothing in the first place.

The liberal media finally catches up to a little secret that the rest of the world has known for quite some now: too much Barack is not a good thing.
Seriously, what took 'em so long? Couldn't possibly be that all the Obama stans in the press have had their collective heads up Barry's ass for too long to notice? Nah, couldn't be that. Surely "Thrill Up My Leg" Wallace and "Bow Down" Brian Williams would jest at any such thought of Obama being overexposed.
And yes, we understand that he is the President, but seriously can Barry....yunno, just go away for a little while? Can we like, get to miss him for a little bit? Shouldn't our President have a little mystery to him? Does Barry have to do a primetime press conference for every, single issue on his quasi-socialist agenda? Can we go one week without word on yet another trifling Obama nuance? Or the constant obsessive with trivial matters concerning Michelle Obama--whether it's the toned arms, a new outfit or hairpiece? Does the Obama administration not fear at all that constantly being in everyone's face could actually yunno....work against them? It's just a thought.

President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, "acted stupidly" in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week after a confrontation at the man's home.Gotta give Barry credit on this one. For a guy whose done more to support his gay electorate than his black groupies during his presidency, one would think that Barry's blatant disregard of issues affecting the Black community would be somewhat troubling to even his Black followers by now. Indeed, a few Obama stans on the Left have begun to bravely criticize Barry. And good for them. Mere coincidence then that Barry comes out and forcefully condemns the actions of police officers arresting a black man for "breaking into" his own home? Who knows. But either way, Barry did the right thing in speaking out against the racial profiling of Professor Gates arrest. Respect due.
"I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played," Obama said Wednesday night while taking questions after a White House news conference.
Cambridge authorities dropped disorderly conduct charges against Henry Louis Gates Jr. on Tuesday.
Obama defended Gates on Wednesday night, while admitting that he may be "a little biased," because Gates is a friend.
"But I think it's fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry; No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, No. 3 ... that there's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately."The incident, Obama said, shows "how race remains a factor in this society."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she has the votes to pass legislation overhauling the U.S. health- care system as Democratic Party leaders moved closer to an agreement with rebellious members of their own party."Making progress" means Pelosi just needs a little more time to payoff the Blue Dogs' favorite special interest groups and get them on her side. After all, Nancy hasn't even scheduled a vote, but she's screwed over Blue Dogs before and she'll do it again if it means satisfying her leftwing, abortion-loving constituency back home in San Francisco. Any wonder she's shown little regard about the oppositions concerns for a healthcare reform package that would mandated taxpaper funding for abortions. Indeed, conservative Democrats don't need any other reason for sticking to their guns than that. But will they?
Leaders are “making progress” with Democrats who want more cost cuts in the legislation, Pelosi told reporters in Washington today, a day after President Barack Obama met with a group of Democrats to try to convince them to back the plan.
“I have no question we have the votes on the floor of the House to pass this legislation,” Pelosi said.
House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman said he plans to meet with members of the Blue Dog Coalition of fiscally conservative Democrats again today after the group moved closer to consensus on health-care legislation.
“We want to reach an agreement and go to markup in our committee,” possibly as early as tomorrow, said Waxman. “We have not resolved our issues, but we are getting close.”

Good. I don't care how many jobs you have, there's just no excuse for a 14-year-old child under parental care to be weighing 555 pounds.
This is a case of serious neglect. We're not talking about a kid whose just a few pounds overweight here. We're talking about a morbidly obese kid knocking on death's door unless he gets the proper care he needs asap.
Jerri Gray has no excuse for allowing her child to get so fat and thus, she needs to be locked up. Parents are legally responsible for the welfare for her child until he's 18 and Ms. Gray has proven to be a failure as a parent. Her kid needs to be taken out of the home and sent to one on those professional fat farms so he can lose weight and get over his obsession with food.
I've been seeing quite a few cases like this of late: men being forced to pay child support for kids that aren't there's. It's another problem with the criminal justice system and an example of reverse sexism if you ask me, as too often courts show empathy for and side with women who more often than not set these men up, knowing full well that they aren't the child's dad. Where all the human rights people are on these matters is another story.
A new poll shows a virtual tie between Mitt Romney and BarackOf course it's way too early to take any 2012 polls seriously. But considering the huge wave that Barry rode in on, this certainly makes for decent chatter at the water cooler.
Obama, if the 2012 Presidential Election were held today.
The Rassmussen Poll put the possible 2012 opponents in a 45 - 45 per cent tie.
The same poll shows former vice-presidential republican nominee Sarah Palin would lose to Obama by a margin of 42 to 48 per cent. The other 10 per cent in both matchups show respondents prefer another candidate or were undecided.
The poll also showed that Romney was preferred among unaffiliated voters by a 48 to 41 percent margin over Obama.
To think, it's Barry goal for his legacy to ride on this chicanery.
Members of Congress haven't read the 1,018-page proposed healthcare-reform legislation, but then, apparently neither has President Obama.
The president recently confessed he is "not familiar" with key provisions of the legislation.
According to a Heritage Foundation post, Obama's embarrassing admission came during a conference call with left-leaning bloggers.
Obama urged the bloggers to continue pressuring Congress to pass health-care reform immediately. During that call, Heritage reports, a blogger referenced an article in Investor's Business Daily indicating Section 102 of the House bill would "outlaw" private insurance.
"Is this true?" the blogger asked Obama. "Will people be able to keep their insurance and will insurers be able to write new policies even though H.R. 3200 is passed?"
The president's response on behalf of the legislation he is pushing through Congress: "You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you are talking about."

|The Colbert Report||Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
Funny and more importantly, on point.
The usual suspects are going after New York senator Carolyn Maloney after she repeated a conversation she overheard that included usage of the 'n' word:
So despite the fact that there isn't anything in Carolyn Maloney's record that'd suggest that she's a racist, it still isn't going to stop race baiters like Al Sharpton from trying to capitalize on any perceived gaffe. If Maloney wants to beat Gillibrand (a former conservative forced to go lefty in order to win a senate seat in New York) she better realize what and who she's up against.
Well, Maloney's feelings have been festering. So much so that despite urgings against the move by the African American governor, among others, she's announced a primary challenge to Gillibrand for the statewide seat in next year's elections.
In a telephone interview with a New York website, Maloney -- attempting to denigrate her fellow party member's candidacy -- recounted somebody else's alleged characterization of something Gillibrand might have said in Puerto Rico about English-only.
Sharpton, who not coincidentally is supporting Gillibrand and not Maloney, somehow found an e-mail and fax machine to issue a statement calling attention to Maloney's alleged use of the forbidden word that only African Americans can use.
And today Maloney issued an apology for repeating "a word I find disgusting."
This one is too easy. But what's even funnier is that for all the GOP hysteria over Sotomayor, the woman may actually end up benefiting conservatives moreso than the Left. I mean, just look at her record.
Another ethics complaint has been filed against Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, less than a week before her resignation.Ridiculous. Sad too that someone in public office would put personal hatred before voters interests. Makes you sympathize with why Palin quit. Of course, after taking a peek at Ms. McLeod's mug (above), one can understand how she might be kinda bitter towards Palin.
The complaint filed Monday alleges Palin violated ethics law by failing to submit complete gift disclosure forms in a timely manner. The complaint is the 19th ethics grievance against Palin, most filed after she was named the GOP vice presidential candidate last year.
Most of the complaints have been dismissed.
The latest is the sixth filed by fellow Republican Andree McLeod, an outspoken critic of the governor.
Palin's attorney, Thomas Van Flein, says the multiple filings by one person raise the prospect that the ethics process "is being abused and is simply being used to harass and annoy."
Palin steps down as Alaska governor on Sunday, with 17 months left in her first term.

Yeah, I don't think voters want a reform package that benefits illegals and mandates abortion either. People really need to do their research when it comes what does this socialist President is trying to turn this country into.
Ailing "liberal lion" Ted Kennedy is using his battle against brain cancer to make emotional pitches for health care reform. And the media is playing right along with him as both ABC and NBC have enlisted Kennedy for support in lieu of Barry's quest to socialize the health care industry. It's no secret that liberals has been in love with Kennedy for years, long portraying the man as devoted to service, while arrogantly dismissing the fact that 40 years ago Ted Kennedy left a friend to die:
"She would’ve turned 69 on July 26. She probably would’ve been married, had children, and maybe even grandchildren. But because of Senator Ted Kennedy’s actions 40 years ago today, Mary Jo Kopechne’s life and potential were extinguished along with what little integrity Kennedy had left."
Thus begins Sean O'Donnell's column, "Remembering Ted Kennedy's drive on Chappaquiddick 40 years ago today". Sean is the Baltimore Republican Examiner, and his articles are always well worth a look.
The aspect of the case that has always bothered many Republicans is the craven hypocrisy exhibited in this case by Kennedy and his many supporters. There are many aspects of the Kopechne case that appear to show criminal acts, and yet the power and money of the Kennedy family was wielded in a way that seemed to cover up an investigation that anyone other than Ted Kennedy would have had to endure. Kennedy is touted by his supporters as the "liberal lion", always on the side of the powerless, and yet, when the situation involves someone who is truly powerless, Kennedy's actions reveal him to be the most cynical and calculating of all politicians.

But but but......this can't be! Aren't they...yunno, BORN that way?!?
In December 2005, Kerry Pacer, then 17, was featured on the cover of the national gay news magazine The Advocate as its "Person of the Year" — making her the youngest gay person to achieve that honor – for fighting for a "gay-straight alliance" at White County High School in Cleveland, Georgia. But there’s apparently no embarrassment for the gay press....when she takes on a boyfriend and they have a baby. In The Washington Blade, Dyana Bagby reported:Yunno, this isn't even about Kerry Pacer. It's about the gay mafia's exploitation of our youth. Sexuality can be confusing in of itself, but couple that the indoctrination on our children into a lifestyle of sexual deviance and you're left with nothing but a cesspool of moral bankruptcy. Add to that a President who furthers assists in the moral collapse of our nation by giving a stamp of approval to this deviant lifestyle choice, while usurping it for so-called "civil rights" and the imposition of the Left's anti-religious agenda further takes root.
But today she lives with her boyfriend, a construction worker, and their baby daughter, Marley, who turns 1 year old on Saturday.
"Well, she’s the most beautiful blue-eyed girl in the world and everybody tells me that so I’m not just being biased, I swear," Pacer said with a laugh.
"I love every minute of motherhood. It’s been a very big challenge, however I love it. I’ve just been trying to work and go to school and take care of my family," she said.
Pacer, who first came out as gay at age 12, is studying nursing at Gainesville State College and hopes becoming a registered nurse will give her a career that will support her family.
"It’s me and the baby and Shannon [Phagan], who is my boyfriend. We’re still together right now," she said. "And he’s doing really good; he’s helping out a lot and he’s really good with the baby." Pacer and Phagan were friends in high school and hung out with the same people.
"Yeah, well, we got together in high school. We started liking each other and started building a relationship. It was just fate we got together," she said. "You can’t help who you fall in love with. No matter what, you have to be happy and follow your dreams and be who you are."
Hey, fair question if you ask me. Of course, like night follows day, expect the Left to flip (i.e. "RACIST!!!") over this one seeing as Tiahrt is a Republican and all.
A victory for those who still believe in preserving the sanctity of marriage:
Traditional marriage advocates on Friday lauded the order of a federal judge to remove the state of California as a defendant in a lawsuit challenging the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
They also hailed U.S. District Judge David Carter’s decision to throw out a challenge to Proposition 8, California's constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
The plaintiffs in the lawsuit, Arthur Smelt and Christopher Hammer, had claimed that both Prop. 8 and the federal DOMA violate the U.S. Constitution, specifically the Equal Protection Clause.
The two men filed the suit in December 2008 – five months after they obtained a marriage license in California during the short period same-sex marriage was legal last year.
In his ruling Thursday, Carter said California is no longer an appropriate target in the DOMA case because the gay couple who brought it got married in California before voters approved Prop. 8 in the last election.
Also, because the California State Supreme Court recently held that such marriages would remain intact, they had no "injury" or standing to challenge the measure, the judge ruled.
"The twice-expressed will of the people of California for traditional marriage is under assault from many lawsuits, but our recent string of victories in both state and federal courts is very gratifying," commented Andrew Pugno, chief legal counsel for ProtectMarriage.com.
Oprah Winfrey may be the Queen of Daytime TV, but it seems her reign may be slipping.
So how did the most popular woman in television have such a change of fortune?
Granted, it was a holiday weekend during the peak of cable coverage of Michael Jackson's death. In addition, the Wimbledon tennis tournament was on the air, and "Oprah" has been in repeats all summer.
That said, this was no ratings nosedive; viewership has actually been declining for months. The week before, the show received a 3.6 rating, matching its previous all-time low approximately a year ago.
The media mogul's talk show is still the No. 1 in TV and was the No. 2 show in syndication for the week. The big concern for Oprah is whether this dip in ratings is just a temporary summer slump, or a sign Winfrey's dominence is coming to an end.
"Oprah" has weathered the occasional ratings drop over its 23-year run, including in October 2008, when some say viewers turned away from the show due to her outspoken support of Barack Obama's presidential campaign.
