    The Washington Post's Plum Line ^ | March 9, 2015 | Paul Waldman
    It’s safe to say that no president in modern times has had his legitimacy questioned by the opposition party as much as Barack Obama. But as his term in office enters its final phase, Republicans are embarking on an entirely new enterprise: They have decided that as long as he holds the office of the presidency, it’s no longer necessary to respect the office itself. Is that a bit hyperbolic? Maybe. But this news is nothing short of stunning: A group of 47 Republican senators has written an open letter to Iran’s leaders warning them that any nuclear deal they...

    Mark Pryor, the incumbent Democratic senator from Arkansas up for reelection next year, is releasing a new TV ad Wednesday in which he invokes his belief in God. The ad first aired on the news broadcast on ABC affiliate KATV in Little Rock Tuesday evening. "I'm not ashamed to say that I believe in God and I believe in His word," says a bespectacled Pryor, who is holding an open Bible. "The Bible teaches us no one has all the answers--only God does. And neither political party's always right." Watch the ad and news report on it below:video at link...

    <p>“My warning, we need to stay calm for much of the day,” Stephanie Cutter, Mr. Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said, touting thousands of early ballots already submitted by voters. “We’ve already banked a pretty big portion of our vote.”</p> <p>The fear, she explained, was early numbers leaking before voters have finished going to the polls, creating unnecessary panic and pessimism among Democrats.</p>

    It's a beautiful day in his neighborhood, a beautiful day for the president. Would you be mine? Could you be mine? Won't you be my president? Hi American citizens, I'm Barack Obama and I'm glad we're together again. (sung to the tune of "Mister Roger's Neighborhood" theme) That is the diddy Obama and the rest of the Democrats across the nation will be happily humming all the way through election day as Mitt Romney made the announcement of Paul Ryan for his vice-presidential candidate. As this election process has progressed, Romney has had to battle both the left and the...
  • Are the Officials in Hawaii Nervous Yet? Associated Press Disseminates Misinformation - Again!

    Post & Email ^ | April 24, 2011 | Sharon Rondeau
    An article by the Associated Press published at The Drudge Report on April 23, 2011, states that “accessing some Obama birth info is easy” and repeats the false information that a “Certification of Live Birth” is “the only type of birth certificate the state issues.” Just last week, reader and contributor Miki Booth had reported to The Post & Email that Hawaii State Senator Sam Slom “is well aware of the shenanigans going on at the Department of Health, and that he found out just today or yesterday that somebody received a long-form copy.  He said that they’re just “messing...

    The wife of freshman Democratic Congressman Walt Minnick, A.K. Lienhart Minnick, handed out the first-ever “Not Sarah” award Saturday morning at the Idaho State Democratic Convention at the Coeur d’Alene Casino in Worley. The award was given to the party’s vice-chair Jeanne Buell, also of Worley, for her work within the party. Minnick, giving a speech to the Women’s Caucus at the convention, said that Buell is someone who inspires other women “without saying ‘you betcha,’” a phrase for which Republican superstar Sarah Palin is known. Minnick praised Buell for being someone who is well-read, inspiring, and actively working to...

  • Flop Sweat At 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    I know flop sweat when I see it, and Obama and his fellow travelers in the White House, Congress, and the media are in full flop sweat mode. On the outside they are attempting to show that they are in complete control of their government/CARE campaign, but among themselves they are splintering in panic. The first sign of panic is the urge to run away, and run away is what BHO did. He ran to Minnesota, the land of 10,000 loons to get his needed fix of adoration. BHO, clearly a “Tea Party Denier” , had a full measure of...
