You know the gig. This rally is the perfect place to bring these Democrats to realism. The American people are behind you...more then you will ever know!!! Do it!!!

    If President Obama suffered a “shellacking” in the 2010 elections, then what he endured Tuesday night was nothing short of a vicious gangland beatdown the likes of which have rarely been seen before in the history of electoral politics.
  • 2014 Medicaid changes help some, hurt others

    For the poorest Floridians who rely on Medicaid for their health care, some big changes are coming in the new year that could affect whether they still qualify. Others who currently don't get Medicaid may find that the new rules allow them to sign up. The changes are all part of the Affordable Care Act and affect residents too poor to get a tax break on premiums through the health-care exchange. So whether you apply this year or next could make a big difference. "If you qualify now but won't under the new guidelines, sign up before Jan. 1," said...

    A 9-year-old Israeli girl was injured Saturday night in a suspected terrorist attack at the West Bank settlement of Psagot, outside Ramallah. The girl, who was playing in the yard outside her home, said she was shot by a gunman at very close range; confusingly, doctors said later that they had not established whether her wounds were caused by a shooting or a stabbing. The girl, who did not lose consciousness, was reported in light-to-moderate condition by doctors at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek medical center. It was “not clear” whether she had been shot or stabbed, said Dr. Danny Fink. Security...

    Chicago Alderman Anthony Beale gave new meaning to constituent advocacy yesterday when he told Metra’s executive director “people are going to get hurt” in the dispute over how many minorities they decide to hire for a railroad bridge project, the “Englewood Flyer.” The Chicago Sun-Times reports Beale did not specify who would “get hurt” or who would do the hurting. No matter the victims or perpetrators, this is a rather alarming prediction for a locally elected official to make. Beal warned, “I’m trying to help you help yourself. When I say that, problems could arise.

    Two men have pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in connection with the fatal beating of a 59-year-old San Francisco man on a downtown Oakland street, attorneys in the case said Tuesday. Lavonte Drummer, 20, and Dominic Davis, 19, both of Oakland, had been charged with murder in the 2010 death of Tian Sheng Yu, which came after what authorities called a random, unprovoked attack on his son, Jin Cheng Yu, then 27. Drummer and Davis pleaded no contest last month to voluntary manslaughter and are expected to serve 11 years in prison if Judge Carrie Panetta of Alameda County...

    Mitt Romney is an Olympic preparer. He prepares for everything. Every possible eventuality is treated by him as if it were a strand of hair on his meticulously-coiffed head, placed just so with the utmost forethought and consideration. (snip) The one possibility, however, that was too ridiculous, too absurd, too unrealistic to even consider was that with just weeks to go before the first ballots are cast for the Republican nomination, Mr. Romney would be entangled in his toughest struggle to date - against former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. But here we are, and now it is time to figure...

    OAKLAND -- An armed forces veteran was in the intensive care unit of Highland Hospital after suffering serious injuries that he said were caused by a confrontation with police during this week's Occupy Oakland protests. Kayvan Sabehgi was among the 103 people arrested early Thursday after a day of peaceful protests turned violent. He was arrested for remaining at the scene of a riot and resisting arrest, police said. Sabehgi told members of Iraq Veterans Against the War that he was beaten by police with nightsticks on his hands, shoulders, ribs and back. He suffered internal injuries, including a lacerated...

  • Obama Tax Cut Plan would Increase Taxes for the Poor

    Most Americans would benefit from President Obama's tentative deal with Republicans for extending the Bush tax cuts, and economists largely agree it would help stimulate the economy. Yet the plan would actually slightly increase taxes for the poorest Americans, economists say -- at a time when some leaders in Washington are trying to bring attention to the nation's widening income disparity. The level of income disparity in the U.S. "is really an unacknowledged crisis in our country," Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) told Hotsheet.

    Friday, October 29, 2010 Team, Today marks the day that Congressman Perriello has officially ditched his strategy of claiming to be an Independent voice for the people of Central and Southside Virginia, and embraced the face that he is Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi’s Congressman, not ours. For the past two years, Congressman Perriello has sided with Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama on all of their signature legislation and now Barack Obama is coming to Charlottesville to try and save his favorite Congressman, Tom Perriello. Please tune in tonight at 9pm to Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News Channel as...

    emailed statement from Jim McKelvey
    October 25th, 2010 Press Release STATEMENT OF JIM McKelvey: I am quite frankly appalled at Tom Perriello's recent desperate attempts to split the Republican Party, and his vain attempt to get conservatives in the 5th District not to vote for Robert Hurt. Unlike what Tom Perriello would like us to believe in both his goofy mailers and ridiculous television ads, Jeff Clark is not the alternative, and Congressman Perriello is no conservative. Robert Hurt and I may have had some differences in the past, but we are both focused on the same goal for our country's future. In the latest...

    Hurt, AG visit Rocky Mount businesses Friday, October 15, 2010 By CHARLES BOOTHE - Staff Writer Political campaign visits are usually accompanied by some publicity, maybe a rally, a speech and at least a certain amount of hoopla. But Tuesday afternoon, Franklin Street in Rocky Mount became the scene of a low-key, unpublicized stop by Fifth District congressional seat challenger state Sen. Robert Hurt. Hurt, accompanied by Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, walked down the street, visiting each business along the way and talking to owners and customers. "I learn a lot about what's on people's minds," Hurt said after...
  • GOP Rep Cao. "Hurt" after Obama Endorses Dem , warns of Opponents Ethics History

    Republican Rep. Joseph Cao -- in an act of either selfless concern or political expediency -- says he "must" warn President Obama that the Democratic candidate he's endorsed in the race has a history of ethical problems. The Louisiana congressman is smarting after Obama used his first general election ad to endorse Cao's opponent, Democrat Cedric Richmond. According to Cao's campaign, he had hoped Obama would endorse him considering all he did for Democrats -- like being the only Republican to cast a floor vote for the health care overhaul.
  • Obama Says Moratorium Doesn’t Really Hurt Anybody; Louisiana Seethes With Indignation

    President Barack Obama’s moratorium on deepwater offshore oil drilling has been quietly fading from the front pages, as the effects and news coverage of the Gulf oil spill have tapered off. One could almost argue that the spill and the moratorium aren’t even national news stories anymore; they’re of purely local interest now. So perhaps it’s on one level understandable that the administration, personified in a report entitled “Inter-Agency Economic Report Estimating the Economic Effects of the Deepwater Drilling Moratorium on the Gulf Coast Economy,” is touting the fact that since the moratorium went into place in late May, “only”...

    "My discussions with Republican strategists and conservative House-watchers yielded a list of 20 races in which this quarter’s donations are most likely to prove decisive. In many cases, these challengers have actually demonstrated some significant fundraising ability; they just have the bad luck to go up against incumbents — often long-established, powerful Democrats on key committees — who are sitting on small fortunes. Their districts are often conservative-leaning, they have demonstrated real charisma and energy, and in many cases the early polling is favorable."

Goode Jr. says he will endorse Republican nominee Robert Hurt in the race against U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Ivy. Goode, a lawyer from Rocky Mount who represented the 5th District in Congress for six terms, lost his seat to Perriello in 2008 by a margin of only 727 votes. “Yes, I plan to support the nominee,” Goode said today. “I think he has a very good chance of beating Tom Perriello.” Hurt, a state lawmaker from Chatham, beat out six other...
