    mt post is about the teen who has a speech problem and can rap to no end.
    i myself back in 2001 lost my speech due to an illness. it took me over 4 months to regain speech but i did it thru singing. i found myslelf one day just listening to music and i was singing. i guess it was my own therapy and it could not be explain. maybe people stutter more because they know it is uncomfortable and will be looked at funny.
    look at mel tillis, he had a stutter but a wonderful singer. singing/rapping soothes the soul and mind.
    i am proud of the teen who can rap to express himself.

    Think that Soledad needs more rest. She took a repulican and tore him to pieces because she doesn"t like Romney. Very rude turned to Fox News.

    It is interesting to watch Soledad aggressively defend Democrats whenever she can. I rarely see that coming from her when it comes to a Republican. Eric Holder is the head of the agency. Barack Obama is the head of DOJ. When does the saying: The Buck Stops Here come into play? We saw this with Pres. Obama's "You didn't build that" remark. The media went into overdrive trying to tell us "what he really meant". Don't see that feverish attempt by that same media to ever explain what Mitt Romney "really meant".
    I also have yet to hear any discussion of the DOJ coordinating it's messaging with the far left organization, Media Matters.

      Yep. It's pitiful when the leaders throw their hands in the air and say, "it wasn't me!" And yes, CNN is one of those networks that loves to explain it away and give passes to Democrats but hold Republicans feet to the fire. I don't mind them dong that if it is equally applied but its not. I also agree that Soledad rips into Republicans with all her might and then fluffs the pillow for the Democrats. AT Holder was in charge but he's throwing his hands in the air and letting everyone below him take the heat. What's the saying? "Own up to it." Hmm, maybe that doesn't apply to Democrats.

    Why are the college student children of military members and retorted cut off the parents health insurance at age 23 while everyone else gets to age 26?

    In regards to the Attorney General being cleared: how many times have you see military Generals relieved of their duties or position because of actions that occurred far below them? They get relieved because if they didn't know, they should have. So why does the Attorney General get a pass? This is a federal level double standard. One example of the military is the relief of Major General Weightman who was relieved for Aberdeen barracks issues that began years before he got that command and he was new to that command. His name was smeared all over the news. So how about an Attorney General that gets a pass while people below him get fired and one person murdered. Double standard.

      Not to mention the media flailing around to try to defend Eric Holder.
