    On Sunday, a stunned audience sat in silence as Doris Kearns Goodwin turned the keynote address at the opening ceremony for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg into a political lecture focusing on women's and gay rights. Missing from much of her keynote: Gettysburg.

    The New York Post ^ | 10/09/2011 | Michael Goodwin
    The reports are not good, disturbing even. I have heard basically the same story four times in the last 10 days, and the people doing the talking are in New York and Washington and are spread across the political spectrum. The gist is this: President Obama has become a lone wolf, a stranger to his own government. He talks mostly, and sometimes only, to friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett and to David Axelrod, his political strategist. Everybody else, including members of his Cabinet, have little face time with him except for brief meetings that serve as photo ops. Secretary of...

    W.Va. special election for U.S. Senate seat in doubtJuly 18, 2010 CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A special election is now in doubt for the seat held by the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd. Pending legislation would put the seat on the Nov. 2 ballot following an Aug. 28 primary. But the Legislature recessed Sunday without acting on it. State officials had questioned whether they could follow the necessary election timetable if a bill wasn’t passed by Sunday. Gov. Joe Manchin’s office says it believes the special election can still go forward if a bill passes Monday. Without the legislation,...

    Michael Goodwin, a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Post columnist, wrote an article today, entitled, "Dreading Our Future." An admitted Barack Obama voter, Goodwin expresses much more than just buyer's remorse. The anger, frustration, disappointment, shock, and fear he feels is communicated very clearly. The closest Goodwin comes to paying President Obama a compliment is, "he (Obama) has become an insufferable bore."
  • On Obama's travels to Mideast and Europe, he should leave the apologies behind

    A toothbrush, TelePrompTer and the nuclear football - they are the essentials for a traveling President. But as Barack Obama packs for this week's historic trip to the Mideast and Europe, there is something he definitely ought to leave at home: grating apologies for America's past. None is needed. Genuine pride in representing America will do just fine. Our nation has no peer in liberating people from the grip of tyranny, especially in the regions Obama will visit. That's a fact of history and the President of the United States ought to take every opportunity to say so. He certainly...

    Everybody makes mistakes, and I made a beaut the other day. I was wrong to call members of Congress blow-hards and buffoons and declare them worse than useless. I was too kind. I should have said our representatives are gangsters in pinstripes and pearls. They are petty tyrants and the more power they grab, the more at risk we are. Homeland Security should flash Code Red any time this Congress is in session. It is twilight in America now. The House vote to use the tax code to retroactively punish bonus babies was an act of sheer madness. What started...

    Not long ago, after a string of especially bad days for the Obama administration, a veteran Democratic pol approached me with a pained look on his face and asked, "Do you think they know what they're doing?" The question caught me off guard because the man is a well-known Obama supporter. As we talked, I quickly realized his asking suggested his own considerable doubts.
  • Is Obama Following Lincoln Model and Assembling a "Team of Rivals" Cabinet? - Video 11/14/08

    Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | November 15, 2008 | BrianinMO
    Here is video of a discussion historian Doris Kearns Goodwin had with NBC's David Gregory about what may be President-elect Barack Obama's model for assembling a Cabinet. Goodwin wrote a book called "Team of Rivals," which details how President Abraham Lincoln brought some of his fiercest rivals and opponents into his Cabinet to govern with him. Obama has actually cited Goodwin's book, and Lincoln's example. The talk of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, and Obama's meeting scheduled for Monday with Sen.John McCain is fueling speculation that he may be trying to assemble such a governing team. . . ....

    Apparently, being a former Kennedy speechwriter doesn’t carry quite the same cachet as actually being a Kennedy -at least when it comes to drunken-driving arrests. Because Richard Goodwin, longtime family retainer who advised JFK, RFK and Ted Kennedy, was arrested in his hometown of Concord and charged with drunken driving after he plowed his car into a police cruiser. Ooooops! Goodwin, 74, the hubby of historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and a legendary political player, was not given a ride home, a la Patrick Kennedy. Oh nooooo. He was arrested and taken to the Concord PD where he was charged with...

    "It was a hard book to write. Parts of the book were very painful to write. If there was a fury, it was a fury at all the lies that are used to justify war, all the myths of war -- all of the things we're told about war that I had to find out the hard way and very painfully are not true. And if there's a fury at that, it's the mendacity of the entire enterprise." - C. Hedges This book is not about military war, as it pretends. It's about political war, and is the opening salvo...

    Fox News's decision to display the office telephone number of the San Francisco federal judge who struck down the use of "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance on Wednesday has raised eyebrows among some broadcast journalists. Bob Roberts, a reporter for WBBM Radio news in Chicago, commented in the industry newsletter Shop Talk: "Where I come from, that's harassment. There are plenty of ways to air the story without stooping to that level." Other news organizations focused on how the ruling by Judge Alfred Goodwin of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco had touched off...

    Feinstein Link to Attack on Pledge West Coast's 9th Circuit Court May Face Break Up Los Angeles Times 09-22-97 WASHINGTON - The judges of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals have called it "idiotic," "silly" and "very odd." No, they were not referring to their usual nemesis, the U.S. Supreme Court. Rather, the target of their complaints was a plan by Senate Republicans to break up the West Coast's large and liberal-leaning judicial district. In July, shortly after the 9th Circuit suffered a rapid-fire round of reversals in the Supreme Court, the Republicans pushed through the Senate a...

    Columbia Spectator ^ | Today | Alaya Johnson
    Almost three months ago, bestselling popular historian Doris Kearns Goodwin was a frequent guest on News Hour with Jim Lehrer, had dozens of speaking engagements and was a celebrated recipient of the Pulitzer Prize as well as a member of the Pulitzer board. Today, she rarely appears on television and is the subject of intense media scrutiny about a controversy that strikes at the heart of the historian's profession: plagiarism. The 2002 Pulitzer Prizes, announced yesterday by Columbia University President George Rupp, were decided without Goodwin's input. While the recent controversies about academic honesty in the historiographical profession took center...

    03/23/2002 10:59:31 AM PST · by ArcLight · 5 replies · 151+ views
    It’s not likely that many people are taking pleasure in Goodwin’s ordeal. She is, by most accounts, a nice person who works hard on her books. A Concord resident, she is also a local celebrity, someone in whom Bostonians have justifiably taken some pride. She has essentially admitted to plagiarism in the case of The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys. But though her Pulitzer-winning 1994 opus on Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, No Ordinary Time (Simon & Schuster), has come under question, it seems solid enough to me to withstand sustained assault. Doris Kearns Goodwin is not a fraud. She is, rather,...
