UPDATE AT END OF POST: Ari Fleischer responds to accusation Milbank made about him in this segment. The Washington Post´s Dana Milbank made an interesting observation Sunday about the vulgarity prominent in the current presidential administration. Appearing on CNN´s Reliable Sources, Milbank said, "The number of F-bombs being dropped by this White House, scholars are going to look in the national archives in 20 or 30 years and they´re going to be shocked by the language that was coming out of this place" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

I doubt it. Language comes and goes, and goes out of style. There was a day when the word "Marry" was considered a swear word. The f-bomb and other words will have their day and new ones will appear, so that one day the F-bomb will seem just as quaint as "Marry" does today.

I hope the next president forbids the use of the f-word out of respect for the dignity of the office and makes its use a firing offense. That ought to make the contrast clear.

Can you imagine the great President Reagan or any of his talented lieutenants ever using such toilet-mouthed language as the Obamatons do?

No Dana Milbank they won´t. Obama is a radical Marxists and like all radical Marxists they hate societal norms, are of low intelligence and have no couth. Given that most scholars are radical Marxists.

Had you listen to us informed conservatives, you would have already know this.

Whether a foul word comes into and out of style is kind of beside the point. I think the point is that this is a group who has little regard for the people of their own time, you know, we people who are around now and find that kinf of language disrespectful. I don´t really care what future scholars think, I don´t like the lack of respect displayed to us, today.

#17, no, that was the context in which it was used. For Shakespeare to use "enjoy", he was using innuendo.

#2, the f-bomb has ALWAYS been a vulgar and disrespectful word. And it has been around a long time. The difference is that most of CIVILIZED society did not use such words in mixed company (at least while sober) in previous generations. Only since the late 60s did we start allowing such words to be accepted in everyday language.

The fact that this administration is so crude as to use the word all the time just shows how uncouth, rude, classless, uncivilized, disrespectful and just plain nasty they are. But they are also immature and very ignorant and lacking intelligence. My mother used to say people who must use those words are displaying low intelligence or are extremely lazy because they are not smart enough to use more appropriate words to convey their thoughts. I agree, and, yes, I am guilty of allowing myself to fall into the trap of using such words in anger despite many years of vehemently being against swearing. But I am trying to change that back.

Today´s leftists look at dropping the F bomb as some sort of bizarre proof that they´re no conformists.Non conformity is the order of the day with the current crop of uncivilized leftists. Look at the kick they get when someone drops an F bomb on a live TV show.

We already know the left has no respect for women so I doubt they check for any before launching into an anger trade against this or that.I don´t use the F word around women or kids but I´d make an exception for a low life like Kathy Griffin.

Prolfic use of the F-bomb by Pres. Nixon (as revealed in the tapes) is what lost the support of the people for Nixon during the Watergate hearings. I remember the deep shock most ordinary people felt when those tapes were first released. "Benefit of the doubt" flew out the window in a matter of weeks.

They type of people who would think they are "cool" (or "hot", or whatever the going term these days) to use that kind of language probably would think it humorous to decorate the White House Christmas tree with condoms and drug paraphernalia.

Former FBI agent, Gary Aldrich, says in his 1998 book, Unlimited Access, that the 1994 White House Christmas Tree was decorated with condoms and drug paraphernalia. George Steponallofus, et al., said it wasn´t so. No record of how many "F-bombs" were dropped in the denials.

Actually, I am surprised that so many people think nothing of four language Is showing the lack of language development and concern for expressing ones thoughts and beliefs in reasonable ways not just to argue or fight. Many on both sides of an issue are more concerned with attacking the other person rather than stating a well thought out viewpoint. I see it from posters. Is seems to be the only reason many have to post here..to strike down personally another person. I have no clue what the moderates or brand republicans believe or think. All I know is they attack conservatives. Seems to be their only mission in life.

U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -4.08% Flight 370 stayed in the air for about four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky. Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co.

"They flew off the ground," said the piano technician, who also lives in the building in Manhattan´s East Harlem. He told CNN affiliate WABC that he crawled through the rubble and managed to escape unharmed. At least six people were killed in the massive explosion and fire Wednesday that leveled Patterson´s building and the one beside it.

Despite being “the law of the land”, President Obama is telling a lot of people to ignore ObamaCare; but does that absolve you from following it? The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as ObamaCare, is now in full effect, or it is supposed to be. To avert certain political disaster for the Democratic Party, Obama has issued, as of March 5, 2014, 20 unilateral executive actions to “delay” ObamaCare mandates and taxes. The President has the authority to pardon, but he cannot pre-pardon your crimes, just as a priest cannot pre-absolve your uncommitted sins; and just as a priest

Large numbers of Americans, especially those with less education, continue to have difficulty finding work, undermining arguments that there is a “labor shortage” and need for increased immigration, a new study from the Center for Immigration Studies finds. The report, provided exclusively to Breitbart News, shows that the employment situation of American workers has gradually declined over the past 14 years since 2000. The number of working age adults who are not working has risen relatively quickly in the last 15 years. In 2000, 35.8 million native-born Americans between 18 and 65 years weren´t working. In 2006, the number was

The White House issued veto threats on Wednesday for a pair of bills reining in executive overreach that debuted and were debated on the House floor. The Executive Needs to Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments of the Law (ENFORCE the Law) Act of 2014 puts in place a procedure that would expedite the ability of the House or Senate to sue the executive branch for failure to faithfully execute the laws.

CONCORD, N.H. — In October 2006, John Breckinridge, a Manchester police officer, saw his partner, Michael Briggs, shot to death in an alley. It was a searing moment that not only cost the Briggs family a father and husband, it also sent Mr. Breckinridge into a spiral of depression and doubt. He became obsessed with the suspect, Michael Addison, and wanted nothing more than for him to be put to death. When the death penalty came up for debate a few years ago in New Hampshire, Mr. Breckinridge testified in favor of it. But after a spiritual journey that renewed

Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.

The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”
