DEPUTY CIA DIRECTOR says SUSAN RICE gave best initial assessment of attack. ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER defends Justice Department investigation of Petraeus. They are all on the same page and they hold a lot of power. Unlike NIxon, Obama could get off without a scratch.

While we are in this big liberal wave of tax-borrow-and spend, Texas Lt Guv David Dewhurst wants to limit growth of spending in Texas. He will have to fight Straus and the libDems in the State Legislature. And, of course, ISD's that are parading eery liberal consultant they can find before judge to force you to pay higher taxes. We take pride, by the way, in keeping you informed on this issue. THERE IS NO OTHER TALK SHOW TO COVER IT.
HOSTESS BAKERY decides today if idiot unions force them to shut down the company. LOOKS LIKE HOSTESS IS DEAD! Unions can celebrate. They destroyed ALL the jobs. Folks, it is time to deal with unions in this country. They are a blight.
