    Dana Bash: It may surprise some people that Ted Cruz, who went in riding a wave of anti-Washington sentiment, that his wife, you, are an executive at Goldman Sachs, the epitome of Wall Street. Do you see any contradiction there? Heidi Cruz: I don’t. Ted doesn’t have an anti Wall Street sentiment. He has an anti government support sentiment, an anti-relying on government for their well-being.

    Back in 2008, I debated some liberal friends and questioned Mr. Obama's thin resume. They responded by saying that I was missing the point. In other words, don't judge Mr. Obama's resume, but rather his unique ability to inspire and his exceptional judgment. I guess they were telling me that Mr. Obama was one of those exceptional human beings who rises to the occasion because he is smart and politically astute.

    Consumers who purchased new health plans from Blue Shield of California have sued the insurer, claiming they were misled into thinking the insurance would cover their desired doctors and hospitals. In their complaint filed in California state court on Wednesday, San Francisco residents John Harrington and Alex Talon accused Blue Shield of misrepresenting that their plans, sold on California´s health exchange, would cover the full provider network advertised on the company´s website. They sued on behalf of a class of people who had purchased so-called "preferred provider organization" plans from the insurer only to realize that the doctor and hospital

    President Barack Obama’s second inauguration will be book-ended with prayers from the widow of slain civil rights activist Medgar Evers and the conservative pastor of an Atlanta mega-church. The Rev. Louie Giglio, whose Passion City Church just hosted a youth-oriented event that attracted 60,000 to the Georgia Dome, will offer the benediction – a duty assigned four years ago to the Rev. Joe Lowery. The invocation will be offered by Myrlie Evers-Williams, whose husband – a field director for the NAACP – was gunned down in 1963 in the driveway of his Jackson, Miss., home. Myrlie Evers-Williams served as chairman...

    Politics 2012: It hasn´t been two months since Barack Obama won re-election, but already we´re finding out things that were kept from us during the campaign. Expect to hear more in the coming months. lElections are clarifying events, we´re told. But sometimes what they clarify is merely the gap between what we were told during the campaign and the reality on the ground. Often, the two don´t match. That´s certainly true with Obama. How often in recent weeks have we learned that what we heard on the campaign trail from the Obama camp, and which were echoed by

    The town of Cass Lake embraced Elizabeth McKenzie last month when she arrived at the high school in her Army uniform for a welcome home ceremony. Though she isn't a tribal member, the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe Honor Guard gave her a blanket and an eagle feather to honor her as a woman warrior for her service in Afghanistan. There was a tribal drum ceremony and a reception line. Accepting the town's gratitude, McKenzie talked about the close calls she'd had and a war injury that brought her home. She led the march in the high school gym, carrying...

    If United States Senator Al Franken -- it hurts to say that -- ever had a redeeming moment, it was in the role of Stuart Smalley, a character he created for "Saturday Night Live." In the most memorable of Smalley's "Daily Affirmations," the lisping, wildly insecure psycho-babbler hosts Michael Jordan. After explaining to his audience that Jordan is "a basketball player for a professional basketball team," Smalley says to him, "You should be very proud of yourself." "Well, thank you, Stuart," says Jordan, "I am." Stunned by Jordan's self-assurance, Smalley blunders on: "I can imagine that the night before a...

    On a scale of forgetting your pencil at home to forgetting your 50th wedding anniversary, this ranks somewhere around forgetting your lunchbox. But it’s still funny. Last week, a Washington Post columnist started a Twitter hoax. This week, a Washington Post columnist fell for one. Jonathan Capehart, an editorial writer and columnist, took "@RepJackKimble (R-Calif.)" to task Monday for tweeting that "Bush fought 2 wars without costing taxpayers a dime." Capehart responded in a blog post that President Bush advocated for "two giant tax cuts that weren't paid for and two big wars that were largely kept off the main...

    CNS News ^ | 8/12/09
    In a town hall meeting in Portsmouth, N.H., yesterday aimed at “setting the record straight” on health care reform, President Obama again falsely stated the number of uninsured Americans, this time saying it was 46 million, down a million from the 47 million uninsured Americans he falsely said there were in a primetime press conference less than a month ago. The president's claim yesterday that there are 46 million uninsured Americans overshoots the Census Bureau’s official estimate by about 10 million people—a mistake that is more than 7 times larger than the 1,315,809 people that the Census Bureau estimates make...

    The upcoming meeting between President-elect Barack Obama and his one-time rival, Sen. John McCain, was set in motion during a phone call over the weekend between Obama and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), McCain's closest friend. In an interview Friday, Graham said that Obama requested the meeting during a 20-minute phone call that the South Carolina senator described as a "pleasant" discussion about how they could work together effectively. "We just talked about the desire to find something meaningful to work on," Graham said. "He was very nice to me, said that he considered me a serious, reform-minded senator that he...

Kevin Bergner, a spokesman for Multinational Force Iraq, said. Bergner said Mashadani is in coalition forces custody and providing “significant insights” into the al Qaeda in Iraq network.
