    John Dingell turns 90 today, meaning he's spent barely over one-third of his life not representing Southeast Michigan in Congress. With 59 years of service, Dingell remains the longest-serving congressman in the history of the United States. His wife, Debbie, succeeded him as the representative from Michigan's 12th Congressional District when he retired in 2014. Dingell is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and in recent years has developed a cult following on Twitter -- not exactly a hotbed of octogenarian politicians. In honor of Dingell's birthday, greetings are pouring in from around the country. Among the more...

But while Obama has spoken wistfully about the darker hair of his youth, he has also argued that his graying hair is a sign of the experience he's gained as the leader of the free world for the last seven years. Just two days ago, Obama, 54, met with French President Francois Hollande at the White House to discuss joint counterterrorism efforts after the attack...

    President Obama says part of Russian President Vladimir Putin's "shtick" is to look like the tough guy in Russia. "I think thatís where some of these perceptions come up," Mr. Obama said. "My sense is thatís part of his shtick back home politically as wanting to look like the tough guy. U.S. politicians have a different style. We tend to smile once in a while. ..." ...""There is no doubt we wanted to make it very clear that we do not abide by discrimination in anything, including discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation,..."

    ByStephanie Condon CBS News December 13, 2013, 6: 31 PM Sebelius dodges question about whether she offered resignation Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Friday refused to say whether she's offered to resign in the wake of botched rollout of the new Obamacare marketplaces. "I'm not going to discuss what I talk about with the president," Sebelius said from Miami, where she was promoting the new marketplaces. Earlier this week at a congressional hearing, Sebelius acknowledged to lawmakers that the launch of HealthCare.gov, the Obamacare website, was "flawed and failed and frustrating." She hasaccepted responsibility for the failed...

    Former administration officials and Democratic operatives say President Obama is ill-served by his current White House staff and must reboot his second term team following the disastrous ObamaCare rollout. First-term insiders argue the White Houseís weakness was defined by a lack of preparedness, messaging blunders and failure to keep the president informed. They say Obamaís team lacks depth after the departures of longtime advisers David Axelrod, David Plouffe, Robert Gibbs and Patrick Gaspard, and suggest new people must be brought on. ďYou basically have [White House senior adviser Dan] Pfeiffer and [deputy chief of staff] Rob Nabors running the show...

    Iran will decide the level of uranium enrichment in its nuclear programme based on its energy and other civilian needs, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in remarks reported Saturday. His remarks appeared to conflict with the landmark nuclear deal struck with world powers in Geneva last weekend, which states that the enrichment level must be mutually defined and agreed upon by both sides in further negotiations. "Iran will decide the level of enrichment according to its needs for different purposes," Zarif said late Friday night, according to the official IRNA news agency. "Only details of the enrichment activities are...

    As many of you know, I spent a good part of 2012 trying to get the Mitt Romney campaign to give me a shot at writing, co-writing or re-writing his speeches. Alas, I never managed to scale the castle wall. So it wasnít my fault that the only things he said that anyone ever remembered were that 47% of the people would never vote for him and that 20 million illegal immigrants should self-deport. Over the past 12 or 13 years, I have written over 1,300 articles and six books from a conservative perspective, but every time I turn around,...

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday closed ranks behind Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, declaring she should keep her job despite problems plaguing the Affordable Care Actís insurance exchanges. Democrats sought to deflect criticism by Republicans who have called for Sebeliusís ouster over what even Democrats acknowledge has been a botched rollout of the landmark law. Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), the chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, praised the implementation of ObamaCare for proceeding smoothly compared to other massive federal programs. ďIf you compare it to all kinds of other programs of large magnitude, itís actually ahead of schedule,...

    .....[BIG snip]..... .....ďBut what about President Obamaís explicit promise that if you like your insurance you can keep it?Ē [Hume] continued. ďHe later amended that to the government is not going to make you change plans. But thatís not true either because the government has made many lower cost plans illegal. Emanuel and others argue such plans were a rip-off and people should have better ones. But better in whose opinion? Why the governmentís of course. And never mind the presidentís repeated promise it would never come to this. A promise the very design of Obamacare made impossible to keep....

    President Barack Obama is distancing himself from the critical task of repairing his crippled Obamacare website so he can return to the campaign trail. ďThe President is a very interested observer in this [repair] process [and] is being regularly updated on it, and is holding that team accountable for results,Ē Josh Earnest, his deputy press secretary told reporters Oct. 25, while flying with the president to three fund-raisers in New York. Obamaís departure Friday from the White House illustrates his focus on electoral and ideological gains for progressives, rather than on economic and practical gains for actual Americans.
