    By now, the cat is out of the bag - President Barack Obama and his administration are no fans of the Fox News Channel and have been all too eager to wear that sentiment as a badge of honor. However, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer identified the vigor with which the Obama administration has attacked Fox. He explained on Fox News Oct. 20 broadcast of "Special Report with Bret Baier" it's different than just fighting back, but an effort to destroy the cable news channel. "Look, it's one thing for the government, the administration to attack opponents, institutions, media," Krauthammer...
  • Newsweek Political Correspondent: Losing Olympics Good for Obama

    It goes without saying the Obama-loving media will be in full damage control mode this weekend trying to spin Friday's announcement that Chicago will not be the host of the 2016 Olympics, but this one has to take the cake: Losing the Olympics Bid Is Good for Obama

    For Obama, An Unsuccessful Campaign By PETER BAKER October 2, 2009 COPENHAGEN — President Obama not only failed to bring home the gold, he could not even muster the silver or bronze. A dramatic 20-hour mission across the ocean to persuade the International Olympic Committee to give the 2016 Summer Games to Chicago proved such a miscalculation that his adopted hometown finished fourth of four candidate cities. Rarely has a president put his credibility on the line on the world stage in such a personal way and been slapped down so sharply in real time. While Chicago may have lost...
  • AP: Clinton's Campaign "In The Red" -- Debts Exceed Cash on Hand

    The March FEC reports have been posted for the presidential campaigns. Obama's is here. Clinton's is here. McCain's is here. At the end of February, Clinton's campaign was in the red when her debts and loan to herself were factored in. It appears that at the end of March, her financial situation has worsened. In fact, at the end of March, Hillary Clinton's campaign debts alone exceeded her cash on hand. That's quite stunning for a campaign that was supposed to be built on fund raising prowess. As of March 31, 2008, Clinton reported cash on hand totaling $31,712,197.67. However,...

    A morning endorsement from Bruce Springsteen will help Obama dominate the news cycle heading into tonight's debate. That, coupled with some new poll numbers and a newspaper endorsement, helps drag Clinton's ship down by two points to a 10.4 percent chance of winning the nomination. Obama may have E Street to thank if he ever lives on Pennsylvania Avenue. Bruce Springsteen endorsed Obama today, the first mega-celebrity to endorse since Oprah, Babs, and the gang in January. While Obama could've used the Boss' backing before New Jersey's primary on Feb. 5 (Obama lost by 10 points), today's timing actually works...

    Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani canceled a private fundraiser Monday at the home of former Denver Nuggets General Manager Kiki Vandeweghe because of the Virginia Tech shootings. ... Colorado House Minority Leader Mike May, who was listed on the host committee, balked at attending because he worried about Amendment 41, an ethics measure passed by Colorado voters last November, and being at an event that charged a fee. May said he also worried about Giuliani's stances on abortion and guns - opinions that two protesters handing out leaflets outside the Vandeweghe home said were crippling to the former mayor. Dudley...
  • Giuliani Acknowledges Mistake Over Kerik

    NEW YORK -- Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani acknowledged again Friday that he made a mistake when he recommended Bernard Kerik to be the nation's homeland security chief. The acknowledgment followed a report in The New York Times that the former New York City mayor was warned about Kerik's relationship with a company with suspected ties to organized crime even before Giuliani appointed Kerik as New York City police commissioner. Giuliani told a Bronx grand jury last year that his former chief investigator recalled briefing him on Kerik's relationship with the company, Interstate Industrial Corp., before Kerik's appointment. But Giuliani,...
