  • Does 1979 newspaper column shed light on 2008 campaign story? (Obama funding)

    Daily Inter Lake ^ | Septwmber 22, 2012 | Frank Miele
    Searching old newspapers is one of my favorite pastimes, and I have tried to use them many times to shed light on current events - or to inform readers about how the past is prologue to our very interesting present-day quandaries. Recently, I came across a syndicated column from November 1979 that seemed to point 30 years into the future toward an obscure campaign issue that arose briefly in the 2008 presidential campaign. Though by no means definitive, it provides an interesting insight, at least, into how Chicago politics intersected with the black power movement and Middle Eastern money at...

    DISPATCHES FROM THE AMERICAN FRONT George Bush, Real ManBy James Benton You could see it in his eyes, hear it in his tone Tuesday night in the second half of his State of the Union speech: this was a man not to be trifled with, a man who would see a difficult, dirty business through to the end, and God help anyone who stood against him as he does battle against the foes of America and her ideals. If anyone had doubts about Bush's commitment to victory in the War on Terrorism, they were laid to rest Tuesday night. Rarely...

    Most Americans haven’t forgotten the bald-faced lies the Clintons told about Bill’s affairs and molestations along with the sheer savagery of the attacks their surrogates launched against these women. For example, we all remember Bill Clinton perjuring himself by saying, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” Of course, Bill was lying which helped lead to the House voting to impeach him. The Senate attempted to follow suit and although 50 Senators voted for impeachment, they didn’t reach the 67 vote threshold needed to send Clinton home in disgrace. What you may not remember was the...

    Donna Brazile, who managed Vice President Al Gore's presidential campaign two years ago, sent a memo to Democratic lawmakers last month warning that they need to do more to reach out to African-Americans or risk losing their support in coming elections. "The Republicans are in the House," Brazile said in the controversial memo, quoted in Sunday editions of New York's Newsday. "They came in through the window and they want to play." The former Gore official, who now heads up the Democratic National Committee's Voting Rights Institute, urged party officials to "roll up their sleeves and box (the GOP)...

    National Review Online ^ | 07 Nov. 2002 (original) | Byron York
    Today a team of Republican election experts is in South Dakota, looking into the circumstances of Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson's extraordinarily narrow, last-minute victory over Republican candidate John Thune. While it is certainly possible that there were no significant irregularities involved in the voting, some Republicans are puzzled by the way the vote-counting unfolded. Early Wednesday morning, with 99.65 percent of South Dakota's precincts reporting, Thune held a narrow lead over Johnson. It was only when the last three precincts (out of a total of 844) were counted that Johnson finally edged ahead. What has made some Republicans suspicious is...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Suspended Broward Supervisor of Elections Miriam Oliphant has been charged with 55 counts of violating election laws. Oliphant, already facing a Senate trial for her conduct in office, is accused of not opening polls on time and not keeping them open late enough during the September 2002 primary. The Florida Elections Commission levied the charges against Oliphant at its Feb. 19 meeting. If found guilty, Oliphant faces a fine of up to $55,000. She has 30 days to respond and can choose to appear in administrative court or in front of the Elections Commission. Oliphant, a...

The exact extent of the coverage is still uncertain as the networks await to hear from New York, Washington and Shanksville, Pa., on their plans for the day, but it is highly unlikely that ABC, CBS and NBC News will repeat their 2002 menu of broad live coverage...

    The CNN anchor this morning was "interviewing" Bill Schneider about the Trent Lott statements. The anchor stated this calls the Republican effort to reach out to minorities into question AND went on to state that Bush "badly handled" both the Bob Jones University and South Carolina confederate flag issues during the 2000 election. The anchor then said we can only wonder how the 2002 election results would have been different if Lott's remarks had come BEFORE November 5th! Bill Schneider readily agreed.So it is established fact on CNN that Bush handled those two issues "badly" in 2000? And apparently the...

    To understand the election results, you have to appreciate that the Democratic mind-set, which led to Walter Mondale's failed candidacy, is the reason that party candidates fell from Miami to Minneapolis. Mondale's U.S. Senate bid, orchestrated by party elders after Sen. Paul Wellstone's death, symbolized the Democratic off-year disaster. Democrats failed to offer a clear vision of what they wanted to do on the big issues because they can't agree on what they believe. Instead, their campaigns were based on demographics or famous names.

    The AP headline reads: "Cheney won't be at Wellstone Service," But as the story itself makes clear (or at least it's clear if you read through their biased evasions) Cheney was TOLD NOT TO COME by the Democrats. THAT'S THE STORY - and THAT should be the headline, not a headline that suggests Cheney is the one doing the snubbing!!!

  • Reno Sees No Need For Federal Monitors Of Florida Elections

    10/23/2002 2:34:31 AM PDT · by kattracks · 14 replies · 179+ views ^ | 10/23/02 | Jim Burns - Despite Florida's ballot problems in the 2000 presidential election and in this year's state primary, former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno said Tuesday she does not feel federal observers are needed at the polls Nov. 5. Reno narrowly lost the Florida Democratic gubernatorial primary in September to attorney Bill McBride. Reno had to wait 80 minutes to vote that day because the voting machines at the Miami polling place where she was casting her ballot broke down. Some other residents never had a chance to vote, Reno said Tuesday. Florida was also the site of a raft of...
  • Why Saddam's vote impressed me

    Sunday Independent (Ireland) ^ | October 20, 2002 | John Smith
    AS this paper's newly appointed World Affairs Editor (to be confirmed), I was damned impressed by Saddam Hussein's vote in the Iraqi general election/referendum. A result of 100 per cent of the popular vote is not to be sneezed at, particularly given that the entire liberal media establishment was opposed to him. Fortunately for Saddam, prisoners don't have a vote. Regrettably, there has been some adverse comment about the 100 per cent vote coming on the back of a 100 per cent turnout. Sceptics have raised eyebrows about the fact that nobody seemed to miss voting for reasons of work,...

    (METUCHEN, OCTOBER 19) – Today, U.S. Senate candidate Doug Forrester challenged Frank Lautenberg to debate him at the Metuchen Street Fair. Doug brought two podiums to the street fair and confronted Mr. Lautenberg to live up to his promise to debate “any place, any time.” Two weeks ago, at the Old Bridge Fair, Frank Lautenberg agreed to debate Doug “any place, any time.” Since then, Mr. Lautenberg has ducked every opportunity to debate Doug. The Press of Atlantic City called Mr. Lautenberg’s promise “pure bluster.” The Bergen Record said “Frank Lautenberg has a lot of nerve” for refusing to debate....
