Too much was expected of President Barack Obama by his supporters in 2008, said actor Tony Shalhoub, the star of the USA Network show "Monk."

"I think some people have expressed some disappointment, but I believe he has a lot of support there," Shalhoub told "I think people are wanting and willing to give him another four years, and a lot of his policies are long-term plays. And I think a lot of people lost sight of the fact that four years ago, when he was campaigning and when he was elected, his campaign promises and everything that he was talking about, he even said he wasn't going to be able to do it by himself and that it was going to take all of us stepping forward, volunteering, doing our part."

The so-called Monsanto Protection Act signed into law earlier this year caused such an outrage that people around the world are planning to protest the biotech company later this month. Now a United States senator is expected to try and repeal that law.

According to the Huffington Post, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon) plans to introduce an amendment in Washington that would repeal Section 735 from the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013, a provision that has put St. Louis, Missouri-based Monsanto in the sights of environmentalists around the world.

Mayor Bloomberg's plan to open preschools for children as young as six weeks old.

From both educational and developmental perspectives, putting children as young as six weeks into preschool is a ghastly idea. Young children belong at home, preferably with their parents or other familial guardians.

When first asked about the issue, there were no doubt 50 better ways Herman Cain could've responded when presented with the non-story of an offensive word on a rock Rick Perry's family painted over decades ago.

But to his credit, Cain quickly recovered by accepting Governor Perry at his word and urged the media to move on. But if you watch the clip above, what you'll see is that Chuck Todd, "NBC Nightly News," and the MSM as a whole aren't anywhere near ready to move on. Cain obviously wants to talk about jobs and all Obama's Media Palace Guards want to talk about is how racist Rick Perry is. Bottom line: they want to get as many days as they can out of this narrative for one reason and one reason only... To protect Obama.

The FCC faces tough policy choices after a federal court struck down key aspects of the agency's open Internet rules

Open Internet advocates suffered a stinging defeat on Tuesday when a federal court struck down rules designed to prevent the nation's largest broadband service providers from charging content companies for access to Internet "fast lanes." The ruling, which was expected, is a blow to the Federal Communications Commission's ability to enforce "net neutrality," the principle that Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T shouldn't be able to favor certain Internet services at the expense of rivals. As a practical matter, the ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia means that the broadband giants are now permitted to charge Netflix, Amazon and other streaming services for access to faster broadband speeds.

After reading this story I waited for a tsunami of reminders from the left that we're supposed to be in the age of the "new tone" and this kind of language has no place in modern-day political dialogue, but I haven't yet heard a single one...

Actor Wayne Knight, known for his role as Newman on the 1990s sitcom Seinfeld, said it's a mistake to assume that all of Hollywood supports Democrats.

"I don't think the entertainment industry can be looked at monolithically," Knight told on the sidelines of the Democratic National Convention. "I think Clint Eastwood proved that there are plenty of conservatives in the entertainment industry as well. So to lump everyone who happens to be an actor as being part of a support group would be a mistake."

As if we didn't know the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) leans (more like trips) left, an official email commemorating the beginning of "Hispanic Heritage Month" included an image of known-murderer Che Guevara.

Not only is the image outrageous, it was also plagiarized. BuzzFeed reports, "that text and the photo appear to be lifted word-for-word and without attribution from the website" The EPA released an apology - but, apparently, for the plagiarism, not for using the image of Che: "The email was drafted and sent by an individual employee, and without official clearance. Shortly after sending the email in question the individual apologized to her colleagues for the inadvertent error." It's hard to believe the employee didn't know who Che was, so she must be referring to the plagiarism.

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) talks to PJM about his new bill to counter provisions that could "tax religiously affiliated schools, hospitals, universities and soup kitchens right out of existence."

Before the House repealed ObamaCare once more last week, another bill was introduced to stop the Department of Health and Human Services from charging religious institutions steep fines for noncompliance with the mandate to provide birth control without an insurance co-payment. Under President Obama's healthcare law, the HHS can levy $100 per employee, per day against institutions that won't comply with the mandate.
