I celebrated the Oscars myself by going to see Act of Valor for the 2nd time in its first opening weekend. I implore you… if you have not yet seen this movie, do yourself a favor and go see it soon! You will not be sorry. Both screenings I went to gave standing ovations at the end of the film, and in both theaters, sobbing could be heard at certain moments, as well.

One of this country’s best heroes, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, appeared on Bill O’Reilly tonight not only to promote his new book, “American Sniper,” but to tell the tale of his experiences in the Middle East as the most sucessful American sniper, as well as his convictions of his accomplishments. He not only performed so well to save the lives of his fellow military men & women, but also the innocent Iraqi men, women and children, against what he calls (as well as most others do) “savages;” savages who would rape, murder, and torture their fellow countrymen and women in the name of their “god.”
I think Bill O was a bit out of line in his questioning of Kyle, pressing him on his conviction that what he had done was the right thing. In the end, however, Kyle acquitted himself quite well for this interview.
You don’t agree with Kyle? Sucks to be you, but he did what his country asked him to do, and I think he did an out-freaking-STANDING job as a SEAL. America is a safer country because of men like him.

Today on such a solemn occasion, Megyn Kelly was on the air for an extended weekend version of America Live to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01. This has to be one of the most poignant and moving segments of any of the shows today, and of course it had to be on the best daytime cable show, Megyn Kelly’s America Live.
Megyn’s guest was Alice Hoagland, who is the mother of Mark Bingham (although the chyron, I believe, incorrectly indicated his name as Matt Bingham), one of the heroes of United flight 93, and she has been one of the most vocal proponents of the heroes of flight 93.
Bingham, along with Jeremy Glick and Todd Beamer, were just 3 of the stalwart patriots who decided to take charge and be the deciders of their own fates. They all knew they were probably going to die, but refused to let it happen on the terrorists’ terms. They recruited as many willing passengers aboard United 93 as they could to gather with them, collect make-shift weapons, and summon the courage and will to rush the terrorists, reclaim the cockpit and control of the airplane, and most likely save the lives of hundreds on the ground in D.C. They did so selflessly, probably knowing all too well their fates were sealed.

Also from the Ames, Iowa Straw Poll event today. Michigan Congressman, Thaddeus McCotter, made it official he’s seeking the nomination to be the GOP candidate to run against Obama in 2012. He sat down with FNC’s Bret Baier for a brief interview after today’s event.
For those of you unfamiliar with McCotter’s personality, just Google “Thad McCotter” and “RedEye.” He’s acquitted himself quite well there, as someone who’s a serious candidate, as well as an uber-intellectual. Oh, and did I mention how hip he is? Again I encourage you to Google for videos of his appearances on various programs. He’s late to the game, but he’s definitely not a flake. I wish him well, and like Herman Cain, I think he would make a great cabinet pick for the GOP winner in 2012. He’s a serious guy, but not too serious. He’s got the political and policy chops to do big things in the future for the country.
He may not do anything big in 2012, but he’s definitely a rising GOP star.

This was hysterical! I was wondering how long it would take for Bob to do this, but I didn’t have to wonder much longer than today. You can tell everyone tries to let it go, Greg just can’t help himself. I’ve said it before about Bob on “The Five:” I LOVE this Bob Beckel… he’s having fun and he’s much more enjoyable than when he’s on Hannity or other shows. There he just acts bitter and angry.
Again, I like this Bob!
