News about Pres. Obama's practices and policies dominated the top ten most-read stories on CNSNews.com in 2011...and provided some valuable lessons.

Starting at the top (the most-read story of the year), here are the ten most popular CNSNews.com stories of last year, and a lesson you might take away from each of them:

#1. Kagan to Tribe on Day Obamacare Passed: ‘I Hear They Have the Votes, Larry!! Simply Amazing.’

Lesson: Just because an Obama-appointed Supreme Court justice said it in her Senate testimony, doesn’t necessarily make it true.

#2. U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Pays Homage to Obama—But Not Jesus

Lesson: The Obama administration needs Linus Van Pelt to explain what Christmas is all about.

#3. China Has Divested 97 Percent of Its Holdings in U.S. Treasury Bills

Lesson: Spending with wanton (or, wonton) disregard for your country’s finances will reduce the yen for your nation’s debt.

#4. Obama on Congresswoman: You Want Her 'In Your Foxhole' Because She’s ‘Charming,’ Has ‘Cute Smile’

Lesson: Obama can get away with being politically incorrect, even if you can’t.

#5. Fmr. Clinton Adviser: 'Very Possible' Obama Will Bow Out of Presidential Race - For Now

8. Warren Buffett’s Taxing the Rich Won't Solve Deficit, Says Tax Foundation

Lesson: Obama can’t eliminate the deficit by taxing the “rich” – but, he could by taking every penny from every American he thinks has too much. Be afraid; be very afraid.
