  • NY Times: Colleague Says Blumenthal Claims Grew in Time

    NY Times ^ | Published: May 18, 2010 | By MICHAEL BARBARO and DAVID M. HALBFINGER
    Christopher Shays of Connecticut found it puzzling: over time, his friend Attorney General Richard Blumenthal kept revising how he talked about his military service during the Vietnam War. Mr. Shays, a conscientious objector who avoided the Vietnam War, has his own theory about Mr. Blumenthal’s evolving descriptions of his service: “I think that it was a way that he quickly bonded with people I am sure he admired and respected.” When Paul Kingman, a Navy veteran who lost feeling in his feet after chemotherapy, called Mr. Blumenthal’s office in 2007, he was trying to get a hearing for disability payments...

    May 18, 2010 Colleague Says Blumenthal Claims Grew Gradually By MICHAEL BARBARO and DAVID M. HALBFINGER Former Representative Christopher Shays of Connecticut found it puzzling: over time, his friend Attorney General Richard Blumenthal kept revising how he talked about his military service during the Vietnam War. At first, in the 1980s, he was humble. He played it down, Mr. Shays recalled, characterizing it as humdrum desk work. Over the last few years, however, more sweeping claims crept into Mr. Blumenthal’s descriptions, he said: that Mr. Blumenthal had served in Vietnam and had felt the sting of an ungrateful nation as...

    There are RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) and then there are RINOs who call themselves Republicans for Environmental Protection. Founded in 1995, REP seeks to save the planet through decidedly un-Republican, big-government socialism. It also annually hands out its "Greenest Republican in Congress" award. This year's co-winner is Rep. Christopher Shays, RINO-4th District, who by sheer coincidence is on REP's "Honorary Board of Distinguished Republicans," along with co-winner Sen. Susan Collins, RINO-Maine. On REP's 0-100 scorecard, Rep. Shays scored 103 for promoting policies that are responsible for today's record energy prices and much more. Out of the other side of...

    It is often said that the best way to find out how a candidate would act in office if elected, is to see who he/she surrounds himself with. Money is another factor, what people and industries are backing the candidate. These answers should be an indicator of what to expect. Who is behind the man should gauge what kind of man he is. The great Richard Viguerie tells the story of how he and other conservatives had a “seat at the table” of the presidential campaigns of Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan for. His thinking was if Conservatives aren’t at...

    Why Bush really demoted Richard Clarke by Jack Cashill This is the fourth in a six-part series detailing the risks to American national security if Barack Obama (or Hillary Clinton) should ever choose to let Richard Clarke back into government. Clarke is currently one of Obama’s top national security advisors. “When George Bush came into office, though he kept Clarke on at the White House, he stripped him of his cabinet level rank.” So lamented Leslie Stahl during the March 2004 60 Minutes profile that would make Richard Clarke ace crowd surfer in the intellectual mosh pit of the anti-war...

    Is Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg weighing a run for president? The answer, depending on where you are these days, could seem to be "maybe." Just about everywhere he goes, Mr. Bloomberg fields a question or two about whether he is interested in a run for the White House. His answer is generally no. Sparring with the New York press corps, Mr. Bloomberg has issued flat denials, tending toward some version of "What part of no don't you understand?" But on Sunday night at a cozier event where apparently just one reporter was present, Mr. Bloomberg appeared to flirt with the...

    A defiant Tom DeLay, removed as House majority leader because of a criminal indictment, said Sunday he can do his job even without the title and pledged to continue his close partnership with House Speaker Dennis Hastert in pushing the GOP's agenda. The Texas Republican known for keeping colleagues in line and raising prodigious amounts of cash to help elect GOP candidates said he is only guilty of working to defeat Democrats. "But that's not illegal," he said. Yet some House Republicans said the fundraising conspiracy case in Texas has plunged DeLay back into the GOP pack. "He's lost his...

    The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse -- sorry, that's Sens. John McCain and Russ Feingold and Reps. Chris Shays and Marty Meehan, Congress' Dark Knights of Campaign-Finance Reform -- have a message for bloggers: They're not "out to get them." The scare quotes are theirs. In comments submitted to the Federal Election Commission last week, as the regulatory body seeks advice on how to apply the McCain-Feingold law to the Internet, the enemies of the First Amendment had to walk a fine line. On one side, the politicians in them wanted to genuflect to democracy, open debate and all the...

    WASHINGTON — How fares the multination cover-up of the richest rip-off in world history? Obstruction of justice has never had it so good. Last month, after some badgering in this space and elsewhere, the House International Relations Committee announced it would look into the $5 billion kickback scandal in the United Nations' six-year Iraqi oil-for-food program, the largest humanitarian aid effort ever undertaken. Our State Department, eager for U.N. help in Iraq, wants no revelations of U.N. ineptitude and corruption. It waltzed the committee staff around. Senate Foreign Relations, however, not wanting to be upstaged by its House counterpart, called...

In a news conference at the state Capitol complex, Shays said he had been prepared to forgive Rowland for lying about accepting gifts from employees and a state contractor. "But I am not prepared to stand by a governor, even a friend, who has done wrong, lied about it and then refused to account for his actions," said Shays, who is serving his ninth term in Congress....

    Two left-of-center Republicans are feuding over whether it's safe to be in Times Square tonight. According to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Rep. Christopher Shays of Connecticut is as yellow as a Frenchman for being too scared to show up at America's most famous New Year's Eve celebration. Shays said Tuesday that he wouldn't go to Times Square "for anything." "Secretary Ridge says just do what you normally do," the congressman told WVIT-TV. "I would say, what do you normally do? If normally you go to Times Square, I wouldn't do what you normally do. "I wouldn't go into...

Lieberman told "Fox News Sunday," "In the most technical sense that we're in a war now in which, in the last month, we have lost...
