    FOX and Beck are like little children who have been missbehaving for a long time and they continue to missbehave to get attention. The logical thing to do is to ignore the bufoons but there are times when the children need to be punished.

    The WH must have felt that the time had come.

    Surely they could've picked a better moment than a random comment about the Olympics. Why wasn't the White House calling them out in August during the health care debate?

    I can't. This is important.

    I disagree. Obama should call these guys out every single time they lie (which is constantly).

    They can't handle Fox, and we wonder why Afghanistan is turning sour?

    Can you imagine if 9/11 happened on these idiots' watch?

    When they "lie" or when they tell "half truths"? Because even Obama is guilty is telling a lot of "half truths."

    If the White House "calls out" Fox for everything they say, it will eliminate the ability of the White House to discuss actual issues, and the story will just become the feud with Fox. That is a losing scenario for the White House.

    Asked what he thinks of another Fox News personality, Glenn Beck, Graham replied, "Only in America can you make that much money crying."

    He said Beck is "not aligned with any party as far as I can tell. He's aligned with cynicism. And there's always been a market for cynicism."

    "But we became a great nation not because we are a nation of cynics. We became a great nation because we are a nation of believers," he added.

    Good line. Raises my estimation of Graham quite a bit.

    In fact, I think it is time to add a sig.
