    DNC: Americans Lose Faith in President Bush 2/10/2006 2:00:00 PM To: National Desk, Political Reporter Contact: Karen Finney of Democratic National Committee, 202-863-8148 WASHINGTON, Feb. 10 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following was released today by the Democratic National Committee: This week, the White House's lack of credibility and failure to be truthful was on display once again. The Bush Administration continues to stonewall, withhold information and refuses to offer answers on a host of issues. From stonewalling on his secret spying program, to refusing to investigate the misuse of intelligence on Iraq and his Administration's disastrous mishandling of the response...
  • Teresa Heinz Bankrolling Hillary Clinton

    Teresa Heinz Bankrolling Hillary Clinton Billionaire ketchup queen Teresa Heinz is helping to bankroll Hillary Clinton's Senate reelection race with a contribution that Mrs. Clinton will be able to use when she runs for president in 2008 - against John Kerry. It's not clear whether Mrs. Heinz's $2,100 maximum donation signals a rift within the Kerry household. But while Sen. Kerry has made his 2008 intentions apparent, his wife has been more circumspect of late. "We’ll know by the end of the year," she said in January, when asked whether her husband would rule out another presidential bid. Gossip maven...

    Katie Turns Off BS Detector as Kerry Trumpets Bogus Stats Posted by Rich Noyes on February 1, 2006 - 11:20. Massachusetts Senator John Kerry must be thinking how fortunate he was that there were no real journalists in the room -- just perky Katie Couric -- when he appeared on NBC’s Today to complain about President Bush’s State of the Union address. As NewsBusters’ Mark Finkelstein noted earlier, Couric did ask a couple of pointed questions, at one point asking Kerry if there “was there anything you appreciated or liked hearing” in Bush’s speech. But when Kerry started inventing statistics...

    Losing presidential elections appears to be quite difficult for Democratic nominees to take. Al Gore has now evolved into a hysterical radical, unhinged caricature and attacks anything that doesn't fit his far left agenda at every turn. Now it appears John Kerry is set to join the unhinged failed presidential candidate club. After his Davos dial, where he called for a filibuster of new Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito from the slopes, he hit the airwaves on Wednesday morning and threw a bit of a hissy fit on the NBC's 'Today' Show. It was to be nothing more than an...

    Dear Democracks, Yesterday, 25 Democratic Senators joined our effort to filibuster the Alito nomination -- that's more votes to filibuster the Alito nomination than there were votes against Justice Roberts' nomination itself just a few months ago. This morning, 42 Senators voted against Alito's nomination. That's the highest number of votes against any Supreme Court nominee since Clarence Thomas in 1991. It's hard to lose -- but it's important to fight for what we believe in. I want to thank the hundreds of thousands of you who signed our petitions, called your senators, wrote letters to the editor and, most...

One of the first targets was Senator John Kerry, Bush's rival for the White House in 2004, who was in Davos Thursday when he urged the Senate to use a delaying tactic called a filibuster against Supreme Court nominee Sam Alito. "It was a pretty historic day. This was the first time ever that a Senator has called for a filibuster from the slopes of Davos, Switzerland," White...

    New York - AP) — Senator John Kerry says US needs to reduce its forces in Iraq by at least 100,000 by the end of 2006. He says such a move will send a message to the Middle East that Americans aren't interested in maintaining a permanent military presence in that country. In a speech before the Council on Foreign Relations, Kerry said the goal should be to have a force of 30-to-40,000 in Iraq by the end of next year. However, he said any troop withdrawal should be linked to a timetable set by what he calls "a series...

    American troops on the Syrian border are enjoying a battle they have long waited to see - a clash between foreign al-Qa'eda fighters and Iraqi insurgents. Tribal leaders in Husaybah are attacking followers of Abu Musab Zarqawi, the Jordanian-born terrorist who established the town as an entry point for al-Qa'eda jihadists being smuggled into the country. The reason, the US military believes, is frustration at the heavy-handed approach of the foreigners, who have kidnapped and assassinated local leaders and imposed a strict Islamic code. Fighting, which could be clearly heard at night over the weekend, first broke out in May...

    By H.

After finishing most work on the bill late last week, the Senate approved the sweeping legislation 85-12. It includes a proposed $18 billion in energy tax breaks, an expansion of ethanol use and measures aimed at increasing natural gas imports to meet growing demand. But lawmakers acknowledged that the measure would do little, if anything, in the short run to stem the...

    While visiting friends recently in East Rutherford, N.J. -- the Land of No Left Turns where drivers who cut you off give you dirty looks -- I heard what must be the most astounding assessment of why John Kerry lost his bid for president. Forget the polls and the debates and the senator's not-so-Swift boat military service in Vietnam. Mr. Kerry lost to George W. Bush because the man from Massachusetts is simply too darn smart. Wow! There's no denying Kerry's intelligence. Otherwise the senator never would have gotten as far as he has. But to suggest that Kerry's mental...

  • Down with the Downing Street Memo (Kerry)

    The Downing Street memo has a new fan — Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. — who recently said that the memo was a "stunning, unbelievably simple and understandable statement of the truth and a profoundly important document." The problem for Kerry, however, is that there is another document that contradicts his view, a document that the defeated Democratic presidential candidate ought to remember. No, I am not talking about the other official British documents disclosed since Kerry made that statement, although they do show just how silly it was for people to interpret the first memo — which contained meeting minutes...

    Senator John F. Kerry, ending at least two years of refusal, has waived privacy restrictions and authorized the release of his full military and medical records. The records, which the Navy Personnel Command provided to the Globe, are mostly a duplication of what Kerry released during his 2004 campaign for president, including numerous commendations from commanding officers who later criticized Kerry's Vietnam service. The lack of any substantive new material about Kerry's military career in the documents raises the question of why Kerry refused for so long to waive privacy restrictions.

"I think it's a stunning, unbelievably simple and understandable statement of the truth and a profoundly important document that raises stunning issues here at home," the top Democrat added. The...
