  • She's Just Like Us? Hillary Poses for Selfie with JetBlue Airport Workers

    She's just like us? While Bill and Chelsea hold secret closed-door foundation meeting at lavish Morocco hotel, Hillary poses for selfie with JetBlue airport workersHillary Clinton is just another everyday American. That's the message her campaign tried to send on Tuesday when she posed for a photo on an airport tarmac with a gaggle of JetBlue ramp workers – and an MSNBC morning show producer tweeted it out. Half a world away, meanwhile, Bill and Chelsea Clinton were wining and dining the Clinton Foundation's now-controversial foreign donors at northern Africa's poshest hotel – and journalists weren't allowed in.

    Boston Globe ^ | May 7, 2015 | John E. Sununu
    Sometimes the idea of a thing is much better than the thing itself. Take the Titanic, for example, or Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president. During the all-important conceptual phase, both benefited from an aura of invincibility — which is a great thing to have, until you meet your iceberg. Before dismissing this as mere partisanship, please note that two years ago I unequivocally declared Secretary Clinton to be the winner of the 2012 elections. Departing the Obama administration on her own terms, her position within the Democratic party was at its peak. To her credit, she used that standing to...

    Where do we stand on this so far among the GOP field? Rubio’s a yes, Santorum’s a no, Cruz is noncommittal, Walker said he’s already attended a gay-wedding reception but not an actual ceremony. Anyone I’m leaving out? People are dismissing it as a gotcha but I think it’s interesting as a gauge of whom each candidate’s trying to appeal to. The only real surprise among the five who have already answered is Cruz, whom I would have guessed would be a “no” to please social conservatives.Free advice from Ben Domenech to the 300 Republican candidates who haven’t yet gotten...

    Potential GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is calling on Congress to confirm attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch, whose confirmation hearings took place in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee in January. In February, Lynch was voted out of the committee and approved 12-8. Due to the legislative schedule and fighting over bills already in motion, a full Senate vote on her confirmation has not yet taken place. More from POLITICO:

The 25-year-old, who was taken in the seventh round last year by the St. Louis Rams, appeared at the NFL veteran’s combine earlier this week in a bid to impress a host of scouts. But according to one league agent, who spoke to TMZ Sports anonymously, Sam didn’t do much to improve his stock. "My real honest opinion is that he was flat out horrible,” the agent told TMZ. “He did not belong out there." It’s the kind of feedback Sam received from both the Rams...

The comment from the North's foreign ministry came after Obama spoke of the eventual collapse of the regime ruling what he called "the most isolated, the most sanctioned, the most cut-off nation on Earth". "We will keep on ratcheting the pressure, but part of what's happening is... the Internet over time is going to be penetrating this country," Obama said in an interview on YouTube from the White House last week.

    AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Wendy Davis has said she regrets expressing support for the open carry of handguns in her failed gubernatorial bid. According to the San Antonio Express-News, Davis says the position “wasn’t really in keeping” with her actual view and “strayed” from her core beliefs. She supported legislation last year to allow college students with concealed handgun licenses to keep weapons in their cars. The positions put her at odds with the Democratic party. The statement comes with the Texas Legislature poised to consider open carry in the session that begins in January. It would allow people with concealed...

    The marginalization of other voices is now complete.The cross-promotion of more white male celebrities prove it: The entertainment industry has perfected the development of white, cis, straight, male characters. The marginalization of “other voices” — except when those “others” are brought in only to aid in the cheap punch line of a joke — is complete. This is aggression that we do not have to accept. We will protest this until it ends. Many dismissed the protest we undertook last month with #CancelColbert, a hashtag we set up in response to a blatantly racist Tweet about Asians from the Colbert...

    Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul told fellow Republicans on Tuesday that the future of their party depends on them connecting with Hispanics in a more empathetic way and on getting in front of immigration reform – a message that further signals his flirtation with a 2016 presidential run. “If we are to change people’s attitudes toward … the Republican Party, we have to show up and we have to have something to say,” Paul told a small group of conservatives gathered at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. “I hope to be part of that dialogue.” This certainly was not the...

    Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney this week campaigned in Idaho for Gov. Butch Otter and Rep. Mike Simpson, who have primary battles against tea party challengers, to prevent the GOP from veering "wild right."

    Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is warning Republicans that if they expect to be relevant in the future and grow the party they will have to soften on social issues. In an interview with vocativ.com, Paul said he had "sort of a Jeffersonian belief in unity, peace and commerce with all" and that the best way to build the GOP for the future is to include people with whom they don't agree on every issue. "I think that the Republican Party, in order to get bigger, will have to agree to disagree on social issues," Paul advised. "The Republican Party is...

    Last weekend, I reported on Connecticut John Cinque's 2013 warning to lawmakers that he would not comply with their attempts to force the citizens of Connecticut to register their semi-automatic weapons and high capacity magazines. Since that time, the video, though a year old, has gone viral. However, in a recent video between Mr. Cinque and Connecticut gubernatorial candidate Joe Viconti, Cinque reveals that a Branford, Connecticut police officer told him, "I Cannot Wait to Get the Order to Kick Your Door In."

    March 08, 2014, 02:57 pm Obama links up with celebrities for golf game By Keith Laing President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders. The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links. Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House...
  • The conservative group that lost its credibility (Hint: It's spelled G-O-P)

    John Boehner says conservative groups criticizing the latest budget deal have “lost all credibility.” Has the speaker of the House lost his mind? Republicans have certainly cut worse deals with the Democrats than the controversial pact between Paul Ryan and Patty Murray. This one doesn’t increase marginal income tax rates, like the 1990 “read my lips” budget agreement between the Democrats and President George Bush. It doesn’t create the biggest new entitlement since Lyndon Johnson ushered in the Great Society, like Medicare Part D under Bush the Younger. But sequestration marks the only time congressional Republicans have won a major...
