I will say that in all of my years of going to high school games and participating in high school games, USA was not a chant that I heard often. I think many of us are looking for an excuse to be upset with the other side. Granted the left has really killed our school system, but seriously why would you want to start a chant of USA unless you are honoring a vet at the game or just after the national anthem. Neither of that seems to be the reasoning here, so for now, I do question the kids intent until provided proof otherwise.
I also bet when you were in high school you never had Muslim fly planes into the WTC and killed 3,000 people. Since that time, USA is our chant. I never heard it either, but you bet now you will. I am tempted to go to HS games and start the chant and I don't have kids in school. This PC crap is get way out of hand. If you don't want to participate, don't, but don't tell me when and when I can not chant USA. It is my 1st amendment rights to do so, regardless of the schools wishes.
Time to sue these B's.
I'll correct the quote from the article: "The schools each have large Hispanic populations." Correctly it should say: "The schools each have large populations of Mexican nationals who are here illegally." They are here attempting to recolonize land that they believe was stolen from them hundreds of years ago. Indeed, while this continent was being colonized by Europeans, Americans took land from from the Spaniards and developed it. Good that they did, or it would be as dilapidated as Mexico is today. Now the Mexicans see what we have built and they want to steal it. Not just the land, but all the work we've put into it.

I agree Carolina. I suggested this last year and I don’t understand why candidates don’t do it. If you do it now, you then get all of the “dirty laundry” out in the open a year before the election. The benefit will also be to show the country you have a plan and you can hit the ground running and not wait a few months like most POTUS do. My ideal “dream team”
Pres – Cain
VP – Newt
SOS – Huckabee
Sec of Def – Duncan
Sec of Treasure – Bachman

@ canadiensfan – I agree, but still need to point out the facts. There is enough for me to be cautious with Mitch running (he is a friend of my family’s), passion, speaking style, ties with Bush, and the social issues. However, he has the results. It is hard to argue with results. The benefit of having someone like Hermain Cain or Donald Trump is there is no results, but that is also a negative as you can not gage in how they would govern. This is what propelled Obama to the lead over Hillary, but now we know how he will and has governed and when you compare style against style, Mitch is the man!

Man the definition of conservative has really changed. Reagan would never have been elected in today’s enviroment. If you look at Reagan’s policies when he was govenor of California, it was no where near as conservative as when he was President. We now have a guy that has govern with strict conservative policies and yet we want a one year wonder, a celebraity with little government experience, a governor that walked out on her state, a governor that help launched the idea for Obamacare, or a congressman that has been in politics as long as he has been a doctor.
I have heard crazy reasons for not voting for Mitch and some are valid, like the social issues, but reaching across the aisle, come on man! This is a governor that forced his House to run and hide in Illinois. This is a governor that disbanded the unions before it was popular. This is a governor that actually did the impossible and went from a budget deficit to a surplus. This is a governor that has had job growth within their state.
All I ask is to check him out if he decides to run. Listen to his speaches on youtube, make an inform decision and don’t just listen to Rush or Glenn or anyone else. As far as I am concerned, he is the only one that I see right now with the experience and the more importantly the results.
Dont worry. Once Rush listeners (I listen to him almost every day) learn more about Mitch Daniels, they will understand that he is very Conservative and will cut the deficit. And the liberal trolls will still be here slamming every GOP candidate for whatever reason on whatever day.
This is nothing more than a tempest in a teacup.

First of all this teaming up with McCain is flat out a lie and the only reason Glenn keeps stating this is that he purley does not know the facts. Why would Huckabee team up with McCain when there was a three way tie at the time of the West Virgina primary or Super Tuesday (which is where everyone believes this happened in the first place. Heck you could argue that Fred Thompson only stayed in the race is to steal some votes from Huckabee in SC as he removed himself from the race the next day) If you look at the numbers from the day, you will see it was the Rand Paul delegation that pushed Huckabee over the edge and it was there that he brokered a deal with the delegation. I am not saying that is the way to run a campaign, but can believe that Mike Huckabee is the only candidate to have ever done that.
Now I don’t agree with everything that Mike Huckabee has done or stands for, but he is surely better than the majority of the candidates right now. Hopefully we find the ideal candidate to defeat President Obama, but for Glenn to keep dragging Huckabee’s name into the arena as a purely Progressive candidate is laughable, when you look at all of the other candidates are just as guilty as during their time in the political arena.
Huckabee is a progressive Lib and would run this country down the same road as Obama, he has no spine to stand up to the Dems, he is a yes man and I for one would never vote for him. Glen did not call him a nazi or a cancer, I know because I listened to his broadcast that day, which makes Huckabee a liar as well.

Wow I can not believe that we have that many hateful people on this topic. Did anyone listen to the comments? He never agreed with Michelle’s plan or indicated that he believes that government should control the food in take of kids and school lunches. He simply stated that he agrees with Michelle that there is a problem with child obesity. There is nothing in the statement that he made indicates otherwise. Are we to the point that anyone who disagrees with Sarah Palin is off the list? Grow up people.
Most politicians have had to compromise on certain issues, especially, as a governor to keep the governement running. What does Glenn talk about compromising on the ideas, but not your beliefs. Name a situation where he did this. How is it OK for Mitt Romney to raise fees, for his Health Care Plan in state that indicated it wanted a state health care plan, yet it is sinful for Huckabee to raise gasoline taxes to fix roads that the state wanted. What is the difference? What about when Sara went for a windfall tax on Oil companies to aid her struggling state with gas prices? Again where is the difference?
No one will ever agree on a candidate 100% but Governor Huckabee is no where near power seeking bafoon that some on this board believe. What about the Fair Tax, please tell me how any RINO would recommend that, or his positions on Pro-Life (even Romney has waivered on this), his position on the marriage act (which I dsagree with), along with many other issues that fit the platform this party stands for currently. Ask candidates like Marco Rubio, which he supported when he was running for state senate and not just recently, or candidate Duncan Hunter, who’s dad backed Huckabee after he left the race in 2008.
I understand the most on this board do not like Huckabee, but insulting the man with his name or wait, just proves you are no better than the liberal media. If Huckabee is so bad for the country, how come in most polls he has as much as an advantage of winning as does Sarah or Mitt.

I agree and hope he will run with Mitch Daniels. In 2008 we had a number of people that had good ideas, but were liberal on various policies, so it was hard to pick the right one. Huck – Fair Tax, Romney – Business experience, McCain – military leadership. Mitch and Herman will win the states in the south along with the belt way states like PA, OH, and IN. I think you can also add JC Watts in there for Chief of Staff, to help with gathering votes in Congress.
One strategy that I would use this year is to have the republican candidate select his VP and major staff positions to run as a team from the start. Don’t wait to the convention for the annoucement (assuming it is decided prior to the convention). Set it up as the “dream team” to turn things around. By establishing the team up front you can get the “bad press” out early and way before the election.

@ NickDeringer – You are right. I though Steele was the right person for the job, since he had the press exposure from Fox news and other media outlets, but after learning more about Ken Blackwell, he was the more qualified candidate by far. He would have handled the situation better with Rush, the Tea Party, and squared off with RINO’s and the Dem’s very well compared to what Steele has done. I hope he runs again and is chosen this time.

Two quick things – One, why does Chuck Schumer always look like the little devil on someone shoulders when standing behind which ever democrat that is speaking.
Two – This lie that the rich is receiving a tax cut is just frustrating. Why can the media not call out this lie every time. You can not call it a cut if you don’t have it.
November 9, 2010 at 11:36am
After listening to Glenn, I feel that he is on track with something about China. They are pissed at us War Gaming with S.Korea, upset about our devaluing of the dollar, upset at the guy winning the Nobel Peace Prize, plus many more. This would give them enough brass balls to try something like this. They know that President Obama is not someone to fight back with actual force, and they do this as a warning to our President. Bring our economy back under control or else.
This could lead also to the sale of the West Coast to pay off some of the debt. Hey we are already here, just hand us the key.

As a conservative, he should have the right to donate his money to the candidate of his choice as long as he remains impartial when reporting (which he can not). Just as with Fox anchors, most do contribute to candidates, but they remain impartial when they contribute to news cast. With that said, this idoit just stuck his foot in his mouth and is back peddling as fast as he can. This is what I don’t get with liberals, do unto others what I would not have done to me is not the golden rule. However, they seem to think so and over time they seem to illustrate that to us. I also think this is just a show by MSNBC management to see if they can attrack viewers. Over time nothing will happen and this will blow over.

Since I am from Indiana and a very distant relative to Pence, I would love to see him as a Presidential candidate. However, I believe that he will look to run for Gov of Indiana and take over for Mitch Daniels. Lets face it, the best Presidents are usually former Governors. I would not mind him as the VP, and I could see a ticket like Huckabee and Pence that could be successful. Right now I feel that Pence is best suited for a VP role or to continue the success Mitch has brought to the state of IN. Personally, I think the ticket for 2012 will be Mitch Daniels and Michelle Bachman. You have a governor and fiscal conservative on top of the ticket and a true conservative in Michelle solidifying the base and tea party movement thus creating the first female VP.

I am also from Louisville and there is no point to defend Paul through the courier journal. Paul was on Hannity’s radio show yesterday and there is something to the story, but nothing to what Conway is making it out to be. Paul was hesitant to answer any questions about the club, however, this should be a non issue considering it was 30 years ago.
The $2,000 deductible which is the only thing he brings up in debates (you would think a a career politician would be more polished than this guy) is a stupid argument since, as others have said, it is similar to what Obamacare does as it takes into effect. Rand should just focus on three points in the last debate.
1. Do you support Obamacare – wont answer because it cuts medicare by $500 billion
2. If he does not – won’t answer that because he angers his left wing base
3. Finally if undecided as he has been when asked before, it just means that KY would have a senator that could be just bought off for a pork belly project like Bayou Buyback or the Cornhusker Kickback.
All three is not what KY needs.

I would like to see a ticket of Mitch Daniels and Herman Cain. Both have business experience that will help the fiscial conservatives. Mitch can use his exerpience as a Governor to sway the independents while Cain use the grassroots movement to gain their support. In fact, I would suggest that they start off the primary with this announcement. Team up from the start to win Iowa, maybe NH, but probably not, and then rally with a win in SC, MI, and FL for the nomination.
