    WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — White House aides are accusing soldiers who served with Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl are “swift boating” him following his release over the weekend after five years in captivity. NBC News’ Chuck Todd reported Monday that the White House did not expect this sort of vitriolic backlash exchanging five high-level Taliban members held at Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl, who left his Army post in 2009 in Afghanistan and was subsequently taken captive. “They did not expect this backlash on Bergdahl himself,” Todd reported on NBC’s “Today.” I’ve had a few aides describe it to me as we didn’t...
  • Ex-Clinton Aide Stephanopoulos Wonders How Edwards Thought He Could Cheat and Run for Office

    With a complete lack of irony, Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos on Thursday commented on the revelation that John Edwards had fathered a love child. The former top aide to Bill Clinton marveled, "How did he ever think he was going to get through a presidential campaign sitting on all this?" Stephanopoulos, perhaps not thinking of his old boss and the Gennifer Flowers scandal during the 1992 campaign, chided Edwards: "It is just unbelievable." In a second story on the subject, correspondent Bianna Golodryga introduced the story by explaining, "Former presidential candidate John Edwards, now admits that he did father...

    A civil servant who leaked a secret memo about George W. Bush wanted it to be seen by US presidential candidate John Kerry, the Old Bailey heard. David Keogh, 50, from Northampton, is said to have passed a highly sensitive document detailing talks between Mr. Bush and Tony Blair to Leo O'Connor. Mr. Keogh told jurors the contents of the memo had preyed on his mind. Mr. Keogh and Mr. O'Connor, 44, also of Northampton, deny three charges under the Official Secrets Act. Mr. Keogh had been asked to copy out the memo for distribution to high-ranking UK officials. The...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the richest man in the presidential race.Presidential candidates are not required to disclose their net worth, and Romney has not. But analysts who track compensation in Romney’s business field said it was likely to exceed $500 million, according to a report in Saturday's New York Times.Romney built his fortune with the Boston-based Bain Capital, a venture and buyout firm. In 1984, Romney began investing Bain’s $40 million venture fund that eventually grew to billions. Romney’s fund was the first investor in Staples, the office supplies store. The Times also suggests that Romney has...

    Editorial: Anglosphere's leadership is singing in tune IN an analysis of George W. Bush's election victory in the current issue of The Economist, the magazine's acerbic US commentator, "Lexington", warns the Democrats against the self-serving view that the US President won by appealing to base instincts such as fear and hatred. The Republicans "clobbered them on hope". Mr Bush was better than John Kerry at "exuding optimism" and "addressing the aspirations of an aspirational people". This is always the winning strategy in a pro-growth culture such as the US, and shows the Republicans have turned themselves into the "party of...

    Thank goodness for pollster Brad Coker and his Mason-Dixon research organization. Their late polls may rescue us from a wrong-headed interpretation of the 2004 election results. Coker offers an alternative to Warren Mitofsky’s flawed exit-poll-driven conclusion that moral values were the driving force behind this election. Yes, the fact that moral values were more frequently mentioned in this year’s exit poll is significant, but it’s not as significant as it’s being touted to be. Although morality was a plurality winner in the exit poll’s “most important issue” sweepstakes, barely one in five voters (22 percent) said values were the top...

    "THEY are like mules," a particularly cool bishop remarked the other day of progressives in the Catholic church. "They have no heirs." Might this also be true of the deconstructionist Left in politics, with its conceivably sui generis progenitors traceable only back to the counter-cultural sixties and seventies? There's an argument to be made. The re-election of George Bush, an unequivocally combative conservative, and the return of John Howard for a fourth term, suggests climate change in American and Australian politics rather than seasonal variation. After fighting Bush with dedicated unscrupulousness throughout the presidential campaign, The New York Times tacitly...

    Insight ^ | July 23, 2004
    Even the stomach of the liberal-left Village Voice has turned at John Kerry's role as chairman of the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs in covering up the substantial body of evidence that captured American servicemen were held back by the North Vietnamese to assure U.S. performance on peace agreements. On Sept. 21, 1992, former CIA director and secretary of defense James Schlesinger told the Kerry committee flatly that Americans were left behind in Vietnam. The precise numbers were a matter of record. Sworn affidavits say that Kerry gave orders on or before April 9, 1992, to shred intelligence...

    TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran would welcome a proposal by U.S. presidential candidate Senator John Kerry's running mate for a "great bargain" to solve the dispute over Tehran's nuclear program, a senior Iranian official said on Saturday. Vice presidential candidate Senator John Edwards has said that Kerry, a Democrat, would be willing to supply Iran with nuclear fuel for power generation if Tehran abandons its own fuel-making capability - if Iran did not accept this offer, it would confirm Iran wanted to make an atom bomb. Iran earlier rejected the proposal, saying it would be "irrational" for Iran to jeopardize what...

    There are many similarities between the fictional Manchurian Candidate, Sergeant Raymond Shaw, who returns to America after the Korean War with a Medal of Honor, and John F Kerry. In the original 1962 movie-THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, starring Frank Sinatra and Laurence Harvey, not the recent politically correct version of the movie, the communists in the Korean War capture an American infantry platoon and subject them to intense brainwashing techniques. One of the patrol members, Sergeant Shaw, played by Harvey, is a carefully programmed sleeper agent, brainwashed to go back to America to kill the future President of the United States....

    Perhaps Sen. John Kerry does have an advantage after all over President Bush in understanding the complex political issues of the Middle East. New research by Burke's Peerage reveals that Mr. Kerry is the only presidential candidate in U.S. history who has genealogical descent from Muslims, Jews and Christians. "Senator Kerry ... is a virtual walking United Nations," says Harold Brooks-Baker, publishing director of Burke's. Mr. Kerry is kinsman of the Shi'ite shahs of Persia (the most famous was Shah Abbas I, who reigned from 1587 to 1629), as well as the Muslim kings of Tunisia, all of whom —...

The news for Kerry keeps getting worse. Why? For the Democrats, the textbook definition of "insanity" comes to mind: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Months ago, it all seemed so promising for Kerry. He came back from a distant third to win in Iowa, he had the best hair of...

    The state troopers' union is seriously considering an endorsement of President Bush, a vote that would be an embarrassment for Sen. John F. Kerry and a risky move for the union, according to government and law enforcement sources. ``It would be embarrassing for the senator that the state police in his own state aren't supporting him,'' said one law enforcement source. Members of the executive board for the State Police Association of Massachusetts met earlier this week but took no action on an endorsement - despite intense speculation the leadership was poised to reach a decision, according to state police...
