    When FOX News host Glenn Beck said during an interview with Katie Couric this week, “John McCain would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama,” his comments made headlines. Beck explained that “McCain is this weird progressive like Theodore Roosevelt was.” Beck laid out this view in better detail on his television program earlier this month: I am becoming more and more libertarian every day, I guess the scales are falling off of my eyes, as I’m doing more and more research into history and learning real history. Back at the turn of the century in 1900, with...
  • GOP chairman says Hillary Clinton shows a lot of anger

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a potential presidential contender in 2008, "seems to have a lot of anger" and voters usually do not send angry candidates to the White House, the Republican Party chairman said Sunday. "When you think of the level of anger, I'm not sure it's what Americans want," said Ken Mehlman, head of the Republican National Committee. Mehlman cited the New York senator's remarks on Martin Luther King Day in which she called the Bush administration "one of the worst" in history and compared the Republican-controlled House to a plantation where opposing voices are...

    Ex-president Bill Clinton defended his wife Hillary on Friday for claiming last month that the GOP-led Congress was being run like a "plantation," adding that he thought House Democrats were being treated like "sharecroppers." Asked if he agreed with Mrs. Clinton's comment, the ex-president told WCBS Radio's Peter Maer: "Oh, absolutely I do. And it had no racial overtones." "It was more about the arbitrary and complete exercise of power and control," he contended." Clinton cited an unnamed farmer-turned-congressman from East Arkansas who told him he agreed with Hillary as well. "I wouldn't say we were slaves," Clinton quoted the...

    As a Black Conservative author of “It’s OK to Leave the Plantation” I understand why Hillary Clinton used the plantation in a recent speech. Hillary Clinton’s use of the word “plantation” was appropriate for the democratic Senator from New York. As a member of the Democratic Party, Clinton is an expert on plantation management and the plantation Mentality. It was the Democratic Party that fought to keep slavery legal, supported the south during the civil war and supported the formation of the Klan. It was the Democratic Party that passed the Fugitive Slave Act, Black Codes, Missouri Compromise and the...

    This year's Martin Luther King Day celebration was a wild and woolly collection of left-wing blather. In Washington, showing remarkable feats of amnesia that he was ever vice president in a corrupt administration, Al Gore gave a speech claiming President Bush was a law-breaking president and his illegal actions a threat to the survival of our democracy, an extraordinary accusation for even this man to make, given the same policies were executed by the Clinton-Gore administration. In New Orleans, Mayor Ray Nagin announced that God wanted New Orleans to be a "chocolate" city again. When challenged that this might make...

    Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY), speaking at the Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, attended on the pretext of honoring the Civil Rights leader, but instead she dishonored his memory with her race-baiting comments. She sarcastically whined: “When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation, and you know what I'm talking about.” Hillary continues to sound a Democrat theme - making race a divisive issue in America. Sen. Clinton - reared in Illinois - forgets that Repu-lican Illinois Sen. Everitt Dirksen, Senate...

    Some media appear to be agitated by the remarks made by Sen. Hillary Clinton, which reference the Republican leadership as being 'like a plantation'. Such surrounds their perception of this statement as being offensive to African Americans. Which of the following most accurately reflects your feeling about this so called controversy: I am outraged by her remarks. Hillary 'gets it' the others are still lost 'Plantation' as a description of the Republican leadership is a severe understatement

Meredith, my friend, what have you got? WHITNEY: It will take more than a village to get Hillary Clinton elected in '08 after her comments on the plantation. She's doomed. CAVUTO: So the charge that Republicans ran Congress like a plantation, you think, hurts her? WHITNEY: Yeah. Offended just about everyone.

After all, she uttered this remark at what certainly would have been a prime venue for her husband: a largely black audience on Martin Luther King Day. So, clearly, she was looking to connect with this most loyal Democratic constituency. But Mrs. Clinton is possessed of a tin ear precisely where her husband is all deftness and charm.

    Mudslinging by leading Democrats, usually taking form these days as trying to brand Republicans as racists, confirms what I have been writing about for a number of years: the Democratic Party is running on an empty tank. Bankrupt of ideas, the only thing they have to offer is slamming the opposition and playing the race card. The latest case in point is Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's Martin Luther King Day pandering to a black audience in Harlem, telling them that Republicans run the House of Representatives "like a plantation and you know what I am talking about." According to Mrs....

    WASHINGTON In the past week, the Bush and Clinton camps have traded nasty words and asides in a series of exchanges with faint echoes of the 1992 presidential campaign. On the surface, the most recent skirmishing seemed to start with assertions by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democrat of New York, that Republicans were running Congress "like a plantation," and that the Bush administration would "go down in history as one of the worst." But strategists in both parties said the hostilities were more likely the opening shots of the 2008 presidential campaign season. ... The battle has been building for...

    LET ME see if I understand. The junior senator from New York, who many believe is the front-runner for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, went to the famed Canaan Baptist Church in Harlem on Martin Luther King Day. Standing where King stood when he preached the installation sermon for his dear friend the Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker, the junior senator said to the predominately black audience: When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation, and you know what Im talking about. Beyond the GOP hyperbole that would like...

    The latest installment in the Democratic Party’s attempt to divide the country came this week when their favorite daughter, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D – NY), used the occasion of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to stem the decline of Black people voting for their candidates. Democrats are justifiably frightened over the fact that in 2004 President Bush received between 12 to 16 percent support from African-American voters in battleground states such as Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Speaking this week at Harlem’s Canaan Baptist Church of Christ, Mrs. Clinton stated, “When you look at the way the House of...

Neal Gabler should take the lesson to heart, because that's exactly what happened to him on tonight's Fox Media Watch. The subject matter was the media's handling of Hillary Clinton's Plantation Declaration. Jane began with a surprisingly candid assessment of Clinton and her presidential ambitions: "She's clearly running for President and I think the media should quit going around that fact. She's tiptoeing around that fact. The...

    Shooting yourself in the foot By David Limbaugh Unlike our president, who spent Martin Luther King Day paying respectful tribute to MLK and Abraham Lincoln, Democratic Party notables, Hillary Clinton and Albert Gore, used the holiday as another opportunity to character-assassinate President George W. Bush. Just when we were beginning to think Hillary Clinton had found her voice - albeit a decidedly phony one - as a mature, seasoned politician poised for a presidential run, she reverts to those cacophonic utterances that find little resonance beyond her embittered but indispensable base. If one could momentarily suspend his powers of discernment,...

    When Hillary Clinton used her Martin Luther King Day tribute to accuse Republicans of running Washington like an Old South "plantation" - she knew whereof she spoke. In fact, when Hillary and Bill ran Arkansas, Dr. King didn't even have a holiday in his honor - at least not all to himself. Instead, Arkansans celebrated a combination holiday that honored both King and Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general who fought to allow the South to keep blacks enslaved. And that wasn't the only example of the kind of plantation politics that characterized the Clintons' rule in Arkansas. According to...

Hillary Rodham Clinton's "You know what I'm talkin' about" rant.  The race-baiting industry has been dangling on the precipice of comic irrelevance for some time. Jesse Jackson's embrace of despots -- most recently, Hugo Chavez -- has reduced him to bit-player status, and Louis Farrakhan's "whitey blew up the levee" act after the hurricanes removed all doubt about...
