  • Gary Hart Whines to Denver Post Over Cory Gardner Endorsement 'Heresy'

    NewsBusters ^ | October 15, 2014 | P.J. Gladnick
    It's heresy I tell you. Heresy! A generally liberal newspaper must never be allowed the thought crime of endorsing a conservative Republican candidate in a major political race. Such was the attitude of former presidential candidate Gary Hart(pence) in his angry letter to the editor of the Denver Post denouncing them for the high heresy of endorsing Cory Gardner over Mark Udall in the senate race from Colorado. What is most interesting about Hart's letter is what is not in it, namely any complaint about biased coverage on the part of the Denver Post. Instead Hart throws a conniption fit...

    Among the many ways Sarah Palin was hit in the media during her 2008 vice presidential bid—criticism now spilling on to current presidential hopeful Rep. Michele Bachmann—was that she should forget politics and make time for her kids.

    DEVELOPING: NEW CASTLE, Del. -- Police on Friday afternoon came to the home of a 17-year-old high school junior to ask her about direct online communications she has had with Rep. Anthony Weiner. Two officers from the New Castle County Police Department arrived at the girl's home around 4:30 p.m. and asked to speak with the girl's mother about the daughter's contact with Weiner. Another officer appeared at the home a short time later. A reporter was at the home when the police arrived. The girl, whose name is being withheld because she is a minor, told, "I'm...

    Push to blame the Iraq war on "Jewish influence" sounds a familiar theme | A few months ago, a great deal of tut-tutting and dignified outrage emanated from much of the civilized world over the broadcast of a series on Egyptian television which sought to dramatize the "truth" of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. But, as the debate over President Bush's rightful determination to pursue war against the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein heats up, it looks like the dimwitted propagandists who write scripts for Egyptian potboilers have been sharing sources with prominent Washington pundits, leftist anti-war...

The principal suspect in the case, Najibullah Zazi, has pleaded guilty and is cooperating with investigators, key developments that prosecutors hope will help them trace the plot back to its roots in Pakistan, where Zazi and former friends from high school allegedly traveled in 2008 to seek terror training.

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - A delegation of U.S. ex-senators pressed for better relations between Moscow and Washington during talks with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Tuesday, the latest in a series of high-level contacts. The fact Medvedev met former senators Gary Hart and Chuck Hagel -- whose rank does not automatically qualify them for a Kremlin audience -- appeared to be a sign Moscow welcomed moves from Washington to relaunch their troubled relationship. Medvedev and new U.S. President Barack Obama are expected to meet for the first time next month on the sidelines of a Group of 20 Summit in London....

    THE acute phase of the crisis provoked by the Georgian forces’ assault on Tskhinvali, the capital of South Ossetia, is now behind us. But how can one erase from memory the horrifying scenes of the nighttime rocket attack on a peaceful town, the razing of entire city blocks, the deaths of people taking cover in basements, the destruction of ancient monuments and ancestral graves? Russia did not want this crisis. The Russian leadership is in a strong enough position domestically; it did not need a little victorious war. Russia was dragged into the fray by the recklessness of the Georgian...

    In light of the networks echoing Obama-campaign hypersensitivity on how Bush was allegedly comparing Obama to Nazi appeasers before the Knesset, as liberals suggest this is the lowest campaign tactic in years, talk-show hosts will probably notice that on The Huffington Post, it's apparently fine for that old Democratic campaign star Gary Hart to simply compare conservatives to Nazis, not to mention the authoritarian tendencies of those robotic "pre-programmed neo-conservative dittoheads": Historians of early 21st century American politics will remark the degree to which radical forces, usually called neoconservatives, perverted language as recommended by the National Socialist Party in 1930s...
  • Former U.S. senator Hart says McCain will divide Republicans

    LINCOLN, Neb. — Former Colorado senator and two-time presidential candidate Gary Hart told Nebraska Democrats that Barack Obama will heal the national party, while John McCain's nomination may cause a rift among Republicans. "There's a real struggle for the soul of the Republican Party under way," Hart said Saturday before the state Democratic Party's annual Morrison-Exon Day Dinner. About 450 people attended the party's largest fundraising event. Hart, 71, sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984 and 1988, and was a U.S. senator from 1975 to 1987. Hart said the Republican Party is going to find its ties to religious...

    This year’s long and contentious Democratic presidential battle will end with Barack Obama and a healed party, former Colorado Sen. Gary Hart said Saturday night. In fact, he suggested, it actually may be the Republican Party that splinters before the November election. Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain “seems to have a free ride” for now, Hart said in a Lincoln interview. “But there’s a real struggle for the soul of the Republican Party under way.” That clash pits a party tied to the religious right, personal social issues, neoconservative foreign policy and libertarian taxpayers against a traditional GOP that...

He told The New York Times in an interview published on May 3, 1987, that they should “follow me around. . . . They’ll be very bored.” As the NBC anchor John Chancellor explained a few days later, “We did. We weren’t.” Seldom if ever has a major presidential candidacy crashed and burned so quickly.

The two-time presidential hopeful spoke to a capacity crowd on Sunday at the Overture Center's Promenade Hall, promoting a return to principles as outlined in his new book, "The Courage of our Convictions: A Manifesto for Democrats." The talk was part of the closing day of the Wisconsin Book Festival. Lauding the Democratic Party's stand on civil and equal rights in the 1960s and 1970s, Hart exhorted Democrats to delineate the...

    Listening to Losers By Alan Caruba October 04, 2005 In mid-summer, the Washington Post published an opinion editorial by former Colorado Senator and presidential candidate Gary Hart. It embodied all the usual arguments against having invaded Iraq and for staying on until the Iraqis can begin to fashion a free nation with a constitution agreed to by its people. I recall thinking to myself, why would anyone pay any attention to the advice of such a loser? You may think me harsh, but let's very briefly look at his record. In 1972, Hart was the campaign manager for Sen. George...

    ...Richard Nixon, amid a similar low ebb of popularity with Vietnam, gave a famous speech in 1969. This was the year after the Tet offensive, which caused Walter Cronkite's famous Hagel-like throwing in of the towel. In that speech Nixon described a "great silent majority" in America. The idea, of course, was that the daily media attention commanded by the antiwar movement was missing a class of Americans who sat home seething at the behavior of the protesters.

It goes this way: Watch, with silent glee, as someone like Cindy Sheehan calls out the president. Watch, with barely restrained glee, as George W. Bush's poll numbers plummet. Watch, with quiet dismay, as the Iraqis work to draft a constitution that - according to many secular Iraqis - could put Shiite clerics in control and limit women's rights. Watch, in dumbfounded amazement, as Bush insists the draft proposals "honor" women's rights. And when it comes time to finally...

    Hart backs Kerry's campaign October 01, 2003 The Denver Post By John Aloysius Farrell Gary Hart endorsed Sen. John Kerry for president Tuesday, saying that the Massachusetts Democrat was the most qualified and best-prepared candidate in the race. "We cannot afford on-the-job training," Hart said in a conference call with Kerry and reporters. "People should be prepared to be president before they run for president. "Contrary to present experience," said Hart, in a knock at President Bush, "I think the nation is better served when a person enters the office having studied and prepared ... rather than fitting some personality...

    WASHINGTON - Former Sen. Gary Hart likely won't run for the Senate this year, the Democratic Party's top Senate recruiter said Tuesday. "Gary Hart has made it clear he probably won't run," said Sen. Jon Corzine of New Jersey, chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. In a brief interview with The Denver Post, Corzine said Hart's reservations boiled down to "economics." He did not offer further specifics. Although Hart is a Denver lawyer who travels all over the world, he is not known to be wealthy. Corzine's comments confirm what Democratic officials have been saying privately for weeks. It...

    DENVER In February 1992, five years after I retired from the Senate and entered the world of international law, I was approached at my hotel while on a business trip to Athens by a man identifying himself as a "naval attaché{grv}" from the Libyan Embassy, who was almost certainly with the Libyan intelligence service. This was by no means the first time such a thing had happened to me since leaving the Senate. Nevertheless, there was an air of intrigue about the meeting, and it led to intensive contacts with the Libyan government over the next several weeks. Although I...

    WASHINGTON - If Gary Hart jumps into Colorado's Senate race this year, the former senator would be doing so only to "lay the groundwork" for a presidential run in 2008, incumbent Ben Nighthorse Campbell said Wednesday. "The presidential aspirations are still there," said Campbell, R-Ignacio. "I would think he might see it as a steppingstone again." Hart, expected to decide this week whether to run, declined, through a spokeswoman, to respond. Hart, a Democrat, was elected to the Senate in 1974 and served two terms. He ran for president in 1984 but lost the nomination to Vice President Walter Mondale....

    Democratic presidential hopeful Gen. Wesley Clark went "much too far" last week when he promised that if he becomes president he'll guarantee that terrorists won't attack the U.S., former presidential candidate Gary Hart said Sunday. "I disagree strongly with Gen. Clark," Sen. Hart told WABC Radio's Steve Malzberg. Before the 9/11 attacks, Hart, along with former Sen. Warren Rudman, chaired a panel that warned that a terrorist attack against the U.S. was inevitable. The Colorado Democrat told Malzberg, "I was a bit startled by [Clark's] statement if for no other reason [that] I think we have been saying we that...

    No, this is not about the Iraq War, or the post-war reconstruction of Iraq, or the French view of America's position in the world. It's about a single bad decision by the top officers of the world's largest airline, American Airlines, that will probably dump that carrier into bankruptcy. This decision goes beyond wrong, beyond greed, all the way to world-class stupidity. And the reason behind it applies in many areas of American life. To set the stage: When times were fat for the airline industry, American signed fat contracts with the various unions of its employees. Now that times...
