    At a far lower decibel range than most of Super Tuesday's primary battles, a former New Orleans congressman made an announcement few would find surprising. Joseph Cao is running for the U.S. Senate. Cao's official entrance into the race dovetails neatly with the sentiments of a private holiday email he sent to family and friends in December. "Sen. (David) Vitter will not be running for re-election, so this is a great opportunity to have a Vietnamese-American/Asian-American voice in the U.S. Senate," Cao wrote.

    US midterm elections: Barack Obama's world turned upside down as Democrats face electoral disaster By abandoning his own rhetoric of bipartisanship, President Obama divided America and set the course for a heavy Democratic defeat in Tuesday's midterm elections, argues Toby Harnden. By Toby Harnden, American Way Published: 2:00PM BST 30 Oct 2010 Welcome to the world as it was supposed to be for Barack Obama. Standing outside his campaign headquarters on St Charles Street in New Orleans, Cedric Richmond, the Democratic candidate, saluted a "great president" and rattled off the supposed benefits to his district of the Obama administration's reforms....

    This newspaper makes the following recommendations for Tuesday's ballot. CONGRESS U.S. Senate David Vitter Much of Sen. Vitter's first term in the Senate came in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the levee breaches that left 80 percent of New Orleans under water. The senator fought hard to hold the Army Corps of Engineers accountable and to get recovery resources for South Louisiana, including vital funding for coastal restoration. He was a leader in the push to finally close the Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet, the corps-built waterway that contributed to the devastation during Katrina. He also played an important role in...

    My Quang Cao, a former officer in the army of South Vietnam and the father of U.S. Rep. Anh "Joseph" Cao, has died in New Orleans at age 78, Cao's campaign said Thursday in a news release. The cause of Cao's death on Wednesday was not listed but the statement said he had been battling diabetes, as well as post-traumatic stress syndrome resulting from his years as a prisoner following the fall of South Vietnam to the communists in 1975...

    NY Post ^ | October 8, 2010 | Charles Hurt
    WASHINGTON -- At some point after calming the threatening seas and sprinkling world peace around the globe, President Obama promised us he would find time to bring about a political truce in Washington. On the Seventh Day or thereabouts, the "post-racial" Obama would become the first "post-partisan" president. Of all his audacious promises, this was one of his most pedestrian. After all, his party firmly controlled the White House and both chambers of Congress, and his approval ratings were flying close to the sun. With absolute strength, Obama was perfectly positioned to work with conservatives and Republicans to govern from...

    The prize – and he will likely keep it for some time – goes to Louisiana Democrat Party press flack Kevin Franck, who put out a statement in answer to new charges of skeletons in Cedric Richmond’s closet which ups the ante on left-wing accusations of racism. “Joseph Cao and his allies are trying to take New Orleans politics back to the bad old days of Leander Perez and the White Citizens Council…Mr. Cao clearly thinks that an orchestrated whisper campaign based on racist stereotypes of African-American men will help him win votes, but those shameful race-baiting tactics have no...

    Republican Rep. Joseph Cao -- in an act of either selfless concern or political expediency -- says he "must" warn President Obama that the Democratic candidate he's endorsed in the race has a history of ethical problems. The Louisiana congressman is smarting after Obama used his first general election ad to endorse Cao's opponent, Democrat Cedric Richmond. According to Cao's campaign, he had hoped Obama would endorse him considering all he did for Democrats -- like being the only Republican to cast a floor vote for the health care overhaul.

    The Hill ^ | 9/4/10 | Sean Miller
    NEW ORLEANS – Rep. Anh “Joseph” Cao (R-La.) has a friendly relationship with President Obama, but that won’t stop Democrats from trying to oust him in November. Cedric Richmond, Cao’s Democratic challenger, said he plans to focus on the Cao-Obama relationship this fall. But Richmond has a different take on their bond than the freshman Republican. Occupying one of the most Democratic districts in the country, Cao frequently expresses his “love” for Obama. Earlier this year, the president invited Cao to watch the Super Bowl at the White House, though Cao could not make it because of a snowstorm. Cao...

    Most Republicans are probably thrilled that their party is in striking distance of regaining its majority in the U.S. House this fall. Yet for Anh "Joseph" Cao, the unlikely first-term GOP congressman from the overwhelmingly Democratic 2nd District, the battle for control could make his already uphill re-election run still more steep. (snip) On a personal level, Cao said, "I love the president, and I believe he truly likes me." Cao said he's visited the White House about 10 times -- not counting the Superbowl party that he missed...

    With relatively few defections from the caucus, House Democrats passed a bill providing $26.1 billion dollars to states for their Medicaid programs and education budgets, by a count of 247-161. All Democrats but 3 supported the bill, and all Republicans but 2 opposed it. The specific tallies will be released shortly. Earlier, Democrats passed the rule on the bill with more Democratic defections, 229-173. The bill will reduce the deficit by $1.3 billion dollars, and is paid for by a combination of removing tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas and major cuts to the expanded food stamps program...

    Conventional wisdome suggests Rep. Joseph Cao (R-LA) is the most vulnerable GOPer in Congress, seeking re-election in a heavily African-American district in which any scandal-free Dem should easily top half the vote. But conventional wisdom has been wrong before, and a new poll for Cao's campaign hopes to prove it wrong again. Cao led state Rep. Cedric Richmond (D) by a 51%-26% margin, according to a survey conducted May 27-June 2 by LA pollster Verne Kennedy. Cao leads Richmond by a 67%-13% margin among white voters, and by a narrower 39%-36% margin among African American voters. That African American vote...

    Here is video of Louisiana Republican Rep. Joseph Cao suggesting to BP America Executive, Lamar McKay, that in the “Asian Culture, we do things differently. During the Samurai days, we’d just give you a knife and ask you to commit Hari Kari.” Unbelievable. Cao ought to be ashamed of himself for using his platform as a Congressman to say something like this. Encouraging BP Leaders to commit suicide is no joking matter, and it would not solve the problems in the Gulf in any way. We need some grown-ups in Congress.
  • Rep. Joseph Cao asks oil execs to commit "hari-kari"

    Members of Congress chastised the largest oil companies Tuesday, accusing them of being no better prepared than BP to avert an environmental catastrophe. As the oil executives testified at a House hearing, Rep. Joseph Cao said: "In the Asian culture, we do things differently," Cao said. "During the samurai days, we'd just give you a knife, and ask you to commit hari-kari." As the oil executives testified at a House hearing, Rep. Henry Waxman asserted that the companies' spill response plans amounted to "paper exercises" that mirrored BP's failed plan. Their strategies to plug a spill deep beneath the sea...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The lone Republican lawmaker to support Democratic health care legislation has seen his fundraising drop by nearly 40 percent since his vote, and he is quickly burning through a dwindling bank account after resorting to a costly national fundraising operation. Rep. Anh "Joseph" Cao, the unlikely congressman from New Orleans, is facing the perils of bipartisanship unlike any other lawmaker in Washington - trying to please a heavily Democratic constituency while relying on core conservatives for money to fuel his campaign.
