    A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows 41 percent of Americans have a favorable impression of Clinton, while 56 percent have an unfavorable one. That's the worst image Clinton has had in her quarter-century in national public life.

    Voters no longer prefer Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over Republican nominee Donald Trump, according to a national poll published Wednesday. Clinton’s favorability numbers are down 6 points in one week, earning a career-high 56 percent unfavorable rating, a new ABC-Washington Post poll reveals. Although Trump’s 63 percent was higher, when the poll was narrowed to only include registered voters, Clinton’s numbers went much higher. Clinton now virtually ties with Trump at 59 percent, to Trump’s 60 percent. Trump’s favorability has steadily increased since the Republican National Convention in July to 35 percent. Clinton also lost some of her key demographics,...

    Talking Points Memo ^ | 3-2-2015 | Sally Kohn
    On Tuesday morning, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint session of the United States Congress. Netanyahu was invited to speak not through standard diplomatic procedures—the kind of procedures, say, that the President of the United States might go through to speak to Israel’s Knesset. Instead, Netanyahu got a special invitation from Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner. Boehner and Congressional Republicans—who can't seem to do the most basic parts of their job in funding government agencies and our national security apparatus for more than a week at a time—are trying to thumb their noses at the...
  • Bush Derangement Syndrome vs. the Obama Hate Machine

    The American Thinker ^ | January 03, 2011 | Trevor Thomas
    In a recent column, David Corn bemoans what his friend Jonathan Alter refers to as the "Obama Hate Machine (OHM)." Corn concludes, "That's an appropriate name for the right-wing attack network that will throw any charge it can concoct -- regardless of the facts -- at the president." This from the man who, in 2004, penned The Lies of George W. Bush, where, in the introduction, he declares, "George W. Bush is a liar. He has lied large and small, directly and by omission. He has mugged the truth-not merely in honest error, but deliberately, consistently, and repeatedly." According to...

    Some Texans are afraid of losing their land to the Trans-Texas Corridor while others loathe the thought of a quarter-mile-wide swath of toll roads and railway lines transforming the countryside into a superhighway. People continue to turn out in droves at public meetings concerning the controversial Trans-Texas Corridor proposal, specifically the portion known as the TTC-69 proposed from Brownsville to Texarkana. A meeting Monday, Jan. 28, at the fairgrounds in Austin County was no exception, drawing more than 1,000 people. Opposition to the proposed corridor has come from people in all walks of life, said Chris Steinbach, chief of staff...

    Tonya Irizarry was uneducated about pit bulls when she saved Buster from certain death. The dog's owners had abandoned him at a local shelter a few years ago in the middle of a divorce. Worried over his fate, Irizarry rescued him with the intention of fostering him until a permanent home could be found. When no one stepped forward, Irizarry, a volunteer with the Henrico Humane Society, decided to keep him. Within a few weeks, she said, she forgot everything she had heard about pit bulls. "Before I got Buster, I thought the same thing everyone else thinks about pit...

    In the 27 years that Al Chille has been with the Niagara County SPCA, many dogs have had their day. Lately, it’s been the pit bull’s turn to be notorious. Between local incidents like the July 8 attack on a toddler, and national cases like the Michael Vick dogfighting scandal, pit bulls have been in the headlines a lot lately. “We’re getting all kinds of negative national publicity (for pit bulls),” Chille, SPCA executive director, said. Chille said he’s very selective about whom he lets adopt pit bulls — though if someone was looking to adopt a pit bull for...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats yesterday said their party might deny funding for President Bush's expected call this week for a troop surge in Iraq if he doesn't meet their demands for detailed consultations and congressional debate on military strategy. "If the president chooses to escalate the war, in his budget request we want to see a distinction between what is there to support the troops who are there now. The American people and the Congress support those troops. We will not abandon them," the California Democrat said during an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation." "But...

    NRO ^ | September 26, 2006 11:54 AM | By William F. Buckley Jr.
    The question most frequently asked in Connecticut of right-wing voters is: Whom do you intend to vote for on November 7? There are only two patriotic answers to that, but hang on as the drama unfolds. Voting is what you do every two years—and then, mostly, repine, wondering whether democracy really does anything for you beyond giving that little throb of tactile pleasure in recording your enthusiasm for one candidate or—and this pleasure is very keen—your loathing for another candidate. That last is a vital contribution to democratic hygiene, effected by candidates who arouse every hate gland in your withered...

    In her first speech to the United Nations, Secretary of state Condoleezza Rice on Saturday urged diplomats to be tough on Iran’s nuclear ambitions. The United Nations “must be able to deal with great challenges like terrorism and nuclear proliferation, especially when countries like Iran threaten the effectiveness of the global nonproliferation regime,” she said. Earlier in the week, Rice, accompanied by Gen. Raymond Odierno, sat down with Newsweek editors and discussed Iran, Hurricane Katrina, the war in Iraq and a number of other topics.

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts. From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in… You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president.

    Grover G. Norquist is in fine form as he warms up the crowd at his Wednesday morning meeting. The conference room at Americans for Tax Reform headquarters is packed on this cool October day, and Norquist, ATR's president, jokes about the "fun-filled, star-studded" agenda in store. Why wouldn't he be in good spirits? The invitation-only meetings Norquist hosts have become a hot ticket for Washington's conservative in crowd, the place for GOP players to brainstorm, swap intelligence, and see and be seen. The 100-plus people who come each week are the powers who run the federal government—congressmen, lobbyists, senior White...

    The Difference between US and Them US: In 1994, The Green family with legal and valid passports and visas were on vacation in Italy. 7-year-old Nicholas Green of Bodega Bay, California, was with his parents and sister when the family was set upon by robbers. Shots were fired and young Nicholas was mortally wounded. For two days Nicholas lay in a hospital while the entire nation of Italy watched, waited and prayed. Nicholas did not live, but from the depths of this terrible tragedy came an act of goodness that touched not only all of Italy, but also Nicholas' fellow...
