    Count me as one conservative who is disappointed that President Obama's hometown will not be hosting the 2016 Olympic Games.

    Chicago is a beautiful city that would have made a perfect backdrop for the Olympics. The President was right to fly to Copenhagen to try to land the games, not for the sake of his city, but for the good of his country. The fact President Obama failed makes me respect him more for taking the chance, and the fact many right-wing figures opposed the President's mission shows just how narrow-minded partisanship makes us all.

    For the better part of 20 years, a bitterness has infected our politics that has weakened our country.

    Vice President Aaron Burr killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel, while Jefferson was President! Is Scarborough suggesting that Michael Steele and Joe Biden should fight to the death?

    When I try to talk to Republicans about the need to break this cycle of viciousness, some cite the chapter and verse of every hateful left wing attack against George W. Bush.

    Whenever I attempt to have a conversation with some Democrats about the need for us respect our president-- whether he be an Obama or a Bush-- I am told that Bush deserved whatever he got because he was a lying war criminal who hated the Constitution and loved torturing people.
