    "President Barack Obama will travel to Tucson, Ariz., on Wednesday to honor the six people slain by a gunman last Saturday in a shooting spree that gravely wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, according to an administration official. Obama, who ordered a national moment of silence in memory of those killed by shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner at Giffords' "Congress on the Corner" event at a Tucson shopping mall, plans to attend some kind of memorial service, the person said. Details are still being worked out. (snip) The president's trip to Arizona parallels a decision in 1995 by President Bill Clinton to...

    Chris Matthews has used the passing of Ted Kennedy to paint opponents of Pres. Obama as a pool of potential assassins. Participating in a panel discussion on Morning Joe today, Matthews asserted that there was a hateful environment in the Dallas of 1963 in which President Kennedy was assassinated that is "like the mood we're in now."

    As I witnessed the Coretta Scott King DNC rally-er-funeral and the debate around the blogosphere afterwards, it became painfully obvious how desperate the Democratic Party is. They were glad somebody had the courage to tell Bush off, no matter how tasteless the forum might be. The debacle underlies the greatest problem of the far left. They're angry and outraged at the War in Iraq and President Bush's methods of prosecuting the war on Terror. They're outraged as state after state passes Marriage Amendments, and at Democratic Senators refusal to support politically costly filibusters of President Bush's Supreme Court nominees. They're...
  • Jimmy Carter shows how hateful he is during King speech

    Jimmy Carter shows his only colors are all partisan.. Deciding to desecrate the funeral of Coretta Scott King , the former president decided to ignore the grief of the King Family, to throw away the teachings of Martin Luther King Jr., and focused his speech on attacking the President of the United States. Why? Because he could so he did. This is the essence of hate.. Why the Left Wing is so bereft of leadership, bereft of a path, bereft of morals. Their whole platform is simple hate. “I hate the President”, “I hate the USA”, “I hate Children”, “I...

    Ballance to hold another fundraiser before prison term starts Dec 26, 2005 : 3:37 pm ET RALEIGH, N.C. -- Former Rep.

Ballance, a Democrat from Warrenton who represented the First District of North Carolina, resigned in June 2004 for health reasons before completing his first term. He was sentenced to prison in October after pleading guilty to funneling tax dollars into his foundation and using $100,000 for himself and his family. He will be honored Wednesday at the Roanoke...

    Last week marked the third anniversary of the crash that killed Paul and Sheila Wellstone, their daughter and their friends. It went by without much notice in the press, but for many of us it fell with an even heavier thud, as the number of Americans killed in Iraq rolled past 2,000. Yet those of us who admired Paul Wellstone's courageous vote against invading Iraq, and grieve for all that was lost, are ridiculed by those on the right and told to get over it. So it was truly bizarre to have right-wing columnist Katherine Kersten be the one to...

    Wellstone service quickly got out of control Dane Smith Star Tribune Published 10/29/2003 Already a little uneasy about the length and the tone of the memorial service held four days after the death of Sen. Paul Wellstone, master of ceremonies George Latimer grew more alarmed when Rick Kahn's eulogy veered into a startling plea to Republicans to "help us win this election for Paul Wellstone." Latimer thought of his options. He was prepared to help speakers off the stage who broke down, but Kahn clearly wasn't rendered speechless. A corrective comment could be offered, but that would be presumptuous and...

    Posted on Thu, Nov. 07, 2002 Speaker at Wellstone service asks for understanding, forgiveness ASSOCIATED PRESS MINNEAPOLIS The man who gave a much-criticized speech at a public memorial service for Sen. Paul Wellstone said he didn't mean for his comments to be about partisan politics but an expression of personal grief for his close friend. Some Republicans say Rick Kahn's speech turned the memorial into an inappropriate political rally one week before the election, and some analysts say it may have swung votes in the close Senate race between Democrat Walter Mondale and Republican Norm Coleman, which Coleman won. Kahn,...
