    My answer in response to a good friend who had just seen Moore's movie... Questions: 1-How do you feel about things now that you're there? 2-Was it worth it? 3-Are you glad you came? 4-Do you still support everything that's going on? Answers: 1-This is quite an open question, but I'll answer it briefly. It is clearer to me now than ever that America is truly the greatest force for good on earth (humanly). The fact that we use our position in the world as the only super power to ensure other people live in freedom without "conquering" them is...
  • Edwards taking huge hit in Tradesports VP valuation

    Edwards' contract has taken a huge hit, and when you look at the spread, it's gonna keep cratering. My experience in the securities business would qualify this as panic selling. Who do they think is getting the nod, Vilsnak? I predict Gephardt. Without union support, he can kiss Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania goodbye. It's gonna be Mr. Noeyebrows.
  • Presidential Tracking Poll: Bush 47-Kerry 44

    Rasmussen Report ^ | 6/12/2004 | Rasmussen
    Saturday June 12, 2004--The latest Rasmussen Reports Presidential Tracking Poll shows President George W. Bush with 47% of the vote and Senator John F. Kerry with 44%. This is the second straight day the Tracking Poll has shown Bush with a 3-point advantage. Neither candidate has been ahead by 3-or-more points on four consecutive days. Unless the "lead" is held for more than three days, it is probably statistical noise or a bounce from news coverage of the past week. The Rasmussen Reports Presidential Tracking Poll is updated daily by noon Eastern. Regardless of who voters want to win, 53%...

    Hello Everyone, So, how is everyone's summer so far? I hope you're enjoying the most beautiful country in the world!!! Things are going very well over here. All of our civil affairs projects have made a huge impact on the town of Nukhayb, which we are responsible for. They all just love us down there. Yesterday, I took a trip to another small town down South and met with the town leaders in order to set up some civil affairs projects. We also handed out soccer balls, school supplies, and loads of candy. As you can imagine, the kids LOVED...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | 5/24/2004 | John McIntyre
    STILL BUSH'S RACE TO LOSE: Five or six weeks ago there was a flurry of stories describing how Democrats were terribly concerned about the state of the Kerry campaign. Only three or four weeks before that we witnessed the crescendo of Kerry's primary run and there was a lot of talk about how the White House had to "get in the game" and "get serious" with the campaign. The latest flurry of punditry, brought on by the string of bad news in Iraq over the last few weeks, is best summed up by the theme "President Bush is in big...

    Fundamentally, Bush Works on Faith By Peter Schweizer and Rochelle Schweizer Peter Schweizer, a fellow at the Hoover Institution, and Rochelle Schweizer are the authors of "The Bushes: Portrait of a Dynasty." April 11, 2004 NEW YORK — Ask Bush family members and friends about the intersection between the war on terrorism and George W. Bush's Christian faith and you get some strong answers. "George sees this as a religious war," one family member told us. "He doesn't have a PC view of this war. His view is that they are trying to kill the Christians. And we the Christians...

    Atlantic Monthly ^ | July 1988 | William Schneider
    July 1988 An Insider's View of the Election Our author visits the political pros in four battleground states and is reminded that the swing vote in the November election is not conservative or liberal, northern or southern, young or old, black or Hispanic--it's the white middle class. by William Schneider There are two theories about the 1988 presidential election. One is that the Democrats can't lose unless they do everything wrong. The other is that they can't win even if they do everything right. According to the first theory, the Democrats hold all the trump cards--the Iran-contra scandal, the stock-market...

    <p>February 12, 2004 -- WHEN news of Robert E. Lee's surrender arrived in Washington, promising an end to our Civil War, the people of the city streamed to the White House. President Lincoln appeared on the porch to cheers and wild applause, and the leader of a military band asked the president to choose a song. Every man and woman in that crowd expected Lincoln to request "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," or "Rally 'Round the Flag," or, perhaps, "Marching Through Georgia."</p>
  • Spirit remains in 'critical' condition (Newest update)3:55 EST

    The crippled Spirit rover remains in critical condition on the surface of Mars, engineers said today, the victim of ongoing electronic seizures that have caused its central computer to reboot itself more than 60 times over the past two days. Engineers successfully coaxed the rover to beam back limited engineering data during two brief communications sessions and they were relieved to discover the spacecraft's power system was providing the necessary life support. But Spirit's state of mind was clearly - and unusually - different in both sessions, ruling out any simple explanations for what might have gone wrong. "We have...
  • Update on Spirit

    01/22/2004 5:11:40 PM PST · by Keith · 46 replies · 62+ views ^ | 1/22/2004 | Jet Propulsion Laboratory
    Controllers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory believe the Mars rover Spirit has placed itself into "safe-mode" after experiencing some sort of problem, and officials remain hopeful that engineers can coax the craft back into operation. "We are cautiously encouraged," JPL director Charles Elachi said on NASA Television a short time ago. "We are still concerned until we understand the problem and we address it." Spirit abruptly stopped relaying its scientific and health data to Earth on Wednesday, sending a streak of fear through Mission Control when the rover went silent. But earlier today, a signal was sent from Earth to...

    McClintock's Choice California's recall race has Republicans in a quandary. They can unite and have a solid opportunity to take back the governor's chair. Or, as they have in the past, they can fight among themselves and stay out in the cold. Only one Democrat, Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, has a serious chance to win if Gov. Gray Davis is recalled. But the Republican vote - after the withdrawals of Bill Simon Jr. and Peter Ueberroth - is split between actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, a pragmatist, and state Sen. Tom McClintock, a staunch conservative. The latest Field Poll shows Mr. Bustamante...

    As GOP controls House, White House, Gephardt loses clout, but not the faith By Deirdre Shesgreen Post-Dispatch Washingtion bureau 05/13/2001 WASHINGTON — Last year, House Minority Leader Richard A. Gephardt seemed to be in the catbird's seat. His party was on the verge of seizing control of the House, and he was driving the congressional agenda with popular issues such as education and a prescription drug plan for the elderly. Now, Gephardt remains on the defensive in the GOP-controlled House — and without a Democrat in the White House. President George W. Bush's tax and budget agenda has sailed ...

    Pearlie Evans, who managed Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr.'s congressional campaign last year, appeared Thursday before a federal grand jury investigating allegations of voter fraud in the city. "My client is cooperating. She's not a target," said Evans' lawyer, Jerryl Christmas, as they left the Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse downtown after her half-hour of testimony. Evans headlined a series of officials or activists who showed up Thursday morning, apparently the first day that the federal grand jury heard from witnesses. The panel appears to be taking over an investigation that has been under way for months by a city ...

    Judge says redistricting commissions can begin meetings By Paul Sloca Associated Press Writer 04/13/2001 Missouri Gov. Bob Holden JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri's legislative redistricting commissions can begin their duties without a bipartisan balance after a judge rejected Republican attempts to halt the meetings. Calling the case ``exceptionally extraordinary,'' Cole County Circuit Judge Thomas Brown said Friday: ``I do not want to slow down the process.'' Brown ruled after less than an hour of arguments in a hastily called hearing prompted by lawsuits filed Friday morning by the state Republican Party. The GOP wanted to stop the initial redistricting ...
