    Former President Carter and his vice president, Walter Mondale, are teaming up again -- this time at a fundraiser to help Carter's son, Jack, in his longshot bid to oust Nevada Republican Sen. John Ensign. "It will be a real bit of old Americana," Jack Carter said of the event scheduled Friday in Minneapolis at a private home on the Mississippi River. While Jimmy Carter and Mondale see each other periodically, Jack Carter said it's the first time in more than 20 years that they've been together at a fundraiser. He also said his father has done few such events...

    Former Vice President Walter Mondale says he supports a pre-emptive U.S. strike against a North Korean missile that is raising nuclear fears around the globe. Earlier this week North Korea announced it was preparing to test a missile that could reach United States mainland. Tensions rose further when the North Koreans put fuel into the missile, and continued to insist that a test firing was imminent. Mondale said on WCCO-AM Friday that the United States should tell North Korea "defuel that missile. It has three boosters. Dismantle it and put it back in the sheds. Because if you're getting ready...

    AP ^ | June 23, 2006
    Former Vice President Walter Mondale said Friday he supports a pre-emptive U.S. strike against a North Korean missile, saying the U.S. should tell North Korea to dismantle the missile or "we are going to take it out." "I think it would end the nuclear long-range dreams of this dangerous country," said Mondale, who was the 1984 Democratic presidential nominee and a former U.S. ambassador to Japan. The tensions are over North Korea's apparent preparations to test-fire a Taepodong-2 missile, which is believed to have a range of up to 9,300 miles. That would make it capable of hitting much of...

At 5 p.m. on Nov. 5, former President Bill Clinton will speak at Northrop Auditorium as part of the series’ 25th anniversary. “We issue invitations to people to make a Carlson lecture all the time,” said Julie Lund, director of communications for the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs. “We were lucky enough that former President Bill Clinton was able to accept our invitation at this time.” The lecture series is funded by a gift from Curtis L.

    Political operatives at the Democratic National Committee in Washington developed the plan to turn the memorial service for Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone into a political rally, top party sources tell Capitol Hill Blue. The party also urged the Wellstone family to ask Vice President Dick Cheney to not attend the service and concocted the excuse that security for the VP would disrupt the event even though Secret Service security was required for former president Bill Clinton, who was invited and who did attend. Rick Kahn, the Wellstone campaign worker and friend, worked the highly partisan crowd into a frenzy with...

    Apparently a picture is worth about a thousand words and $150,000. That's what it cost the Democrats to throw their memorial rally for the late Sen. Paul Wellstone at the University of Minnesota on the eve of the November elections. The next morning, a picture of Bill Clinton laughing with former Vice President Walter Mondale at the event ran in newspapers across the country and helped set off what many consider to be a turning point in the Republican drive to take back the Senate. In the end, Republican Norm Coleman defeated Mondale. The tab, which included tens of thousands...

    Eleanor Mondale Diagnosed With Cancer MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Eleanor Mondale, the daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale, has been diagnosed with brain cancer, the Star Tribune reported Tuesday. Mondale spoke to the newspaper just hours before she began her first session of radiation and chemotherapy at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Just a week ago, Mondale married local rock star Chan Poling. "It's bad but not that bad," she said from her farmhouse in Prior Lake. "I've got a really good chance to beat it." Mondale, 45, said her vision had bothered her in recent months but didn't believe...

    Speaking out of both sides of one's mouth is an occupational hazard, if not an occupational necessity, for politicians seeking elective office in competitive races. It's not a pretty sight, and it supports a cynicism about democratic politics that is unbecoming. Catering to such cynicism, the leftist writer Garry Wills used to advise college audiences, "Vote for your enemy--he has no one to sell out to but you." The political debate over the use of the Senate's filibuster rule to torpedo President Bush's judicial nominees has triggered a series of reversals and pratfalls that support the low-comedy version of democratic...

    In singular moments in our history, the security of the United States hinged on a single presidential election.... Today's vote determines how the United States finishes the present war against terrorists, and, indeed, whether we continue to defeat Islamic fascism.... John Kerry sees our struggle as an unending law enforcement problem, akin to gambling and prostitution. Thus the terrorist attacks of the 1990s were not deadly precursors to 9/11, but belong to a now nostalgic era of "nuisance." In contrast, George W. Bush envisioned September 11 as real war.... Most of Sen. Kerry's allegations about this war ring false or...

    We're for Walter Mondale, even though Ronald Reagan has in some ways done a good job. America, the President says with permissible hyperbole, is back and he deserves credit because the country feels so much better than it did four years ago. Mr. Reagan has a gift for symbolism and salesmanship; when he salutes the flag and the troops, he embodies a wide renewal of pride in country. And there's more to it than just the persuasions of a patriotic pitchman. People feel better off because many people are better off. The oil shocks and hyper-inflation of the 1970's have...

    John Kerry is described as horse-like, wooden: without any real policies. The right animal, but the abstraction is incomplete. Kerry is the Trojan horse that miraculously appeared for Walter Mondale, to carry Mondale and his huge corruptions secretly back into real power and prominence in the US. Kerry was enticed to use Mondale's main henchman to select his VP, who moved fast to tap Mondale's kind of man, the Democratic Trial Lawyer's favorite. This is one man's 25 year saga of alleged massive corruption directed at him by Mondale and his late partner, Thomas J. Watson Jr. Mondale is now...

    Spin is underway, and a variety of polls are suggesting a Kerry victory in the debate last night. Truth be told, Kerry exceeded expectations, but when it came to substance, he came up short. The flash polls still suggest Kerry won the debate, which Democrats think makes Kerry suddenly unstoppable. Historically speaking, that's hardly the case. Otherwise, we would have seen President Mondale, President Dukakis, President Perot, and President Gore. Since 1984, no Republican has won in the flash polls from the first debate, but has won 3 out of 5 of those elections. Ross Perot beat both Bill Clinton...

    Two presidential debates and one vice-presidential debate were set in the 1984 general election. The first debate was limited to domestic policy, the second debate focused on international policy and national defense. President Reagan was the incumbent and the polls in late September showed his approval rating at almost 54 percent. The October debates were seen as Mondale's only remaining chance to close the big gap. In the first debate, Mondale was viewed as the more effective speaker and Reagan was said to have appeared tired and sometimes confused. In the second debate, Mondale failed to gain further ground.

    It happens at some point to every doomed campaign. The candidate, hopelessly behind in the polls and coming down to the wire, starts talking about sensing a "groundswell" of support. The groundswell is never really there, but losing candidates are always able to see it (through the lens of vain self-deception, I suppose) . . . Anyway, the FR pool is: On which date will either Kerry or Edwards first publicly utter the "groundswell" word in this campaign?

    On May 13, 2004, Senator Edward Kennedy berated Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz at the Senate Armed Services Committee, condemning "disaster after disaster" in U.S. Iraq policy. Well before the Abu Ghraib revelations, Kennedy has sought to transform Iraqi freedom from a philosophical and strategic issue into a partisan debate, without regard either to reality or result. On April 6, Kennedy called Iraq "George Bush's Vietnam." On March 5, 2004, Senator Edward Kennedy, speaking before the Council on Foreign Relations, took the president to task for allegedly exaggerating the threat posed by Iraq: "The evidence so far leads to...

    Conducted at the end of the Democratic National Convention last week, the Newsweek-Gallup Poll of 1,006 registered voters showed 48 percent supporting Mondale and his vice-presidential nominee, Rep. Geraldine A. Ferraro (D-N.Y.), 46 percent favoring Reagan and Vice President Bush, and 6 percent undecided. The 2 percent difference is insignificant, since the poll has a 4 percent margin of error. While it is normal for a candidate to score well with the public after his party's convention, the poll reflected a large turnaround. Mondale had been trailing Reagan by six points in Newsweek's poll last week and by as much...

A few of them, in fact, represent crushing defeat. Clinton was allotted a prime time speech Monday night, a hail to the...

    Every major presidential candidate must take part in that quadrennial ritual of introducing a plan to solve what the chattering class considers to be the nation's most pressing economic problems. Adding to this challenge is that whatever the candidate comes up with must roughly coincide with his party's preferred fiscal nostrums. While the problems change, the solutions don't. Democrat presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., makes a point during his speech at Wayne State University in Detroit on March 26. It is in this context that John Kerry trekked to Wayne State University in Detroit for the grand unveiling of...

I started my own collection two decades ago as a young soldier in the Reagan revolution. Over time it grew to include photos of myself and Ronald Reagan, George Bush, and Arnold Schwarzenegger...

    George W. Bush seems to have driven his political opponents nuts. Howard Dean's reference to the "most interesting theory" that President Bush might have had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attack on the United States suggests that Dean has gone around the bend. But Dean is in good company with many of his fellow Democrats. Former Vice President and Democratic elder statesman Walter Mondale has joined the crowd, although he distinguished himself with spectacularly bad timing. Mondale presided over a program devoted to discussion of the Bush administration's foreign policy at Macalester College on Dec. 12, the day before American forces...
  • The Carterites Strike Back-Mondale, Brzezinski savage War on Terror-on the eve of greatest triumph

    Walter Mondale and Zbignew Brzezinski savage the War on Terrorism -- on the eve of its greatest triumph. The December 13 edition of the St. Paul Pioneer Press carries an account of Walter Mondale's Bush-bashing conclave at Macalester College (on December 12th) that is more detailed than the Minneapolis Star Tribune's, linked below. The Pioneer Press story by Kate Parry is "Mondale jabs Bush's 'radical' foreign policy." Credit the Pioneer Press with contacting a Bush administration spokesman to respond to the conclave's demented exhibition of Bush derangement syndrome. The Pioneer Press leads with an astounding quote from Mondale, and buries...

    This looks to me like a deja vu presidential election, with the Democratic candidates all resembling their party's past losers and President Bush setting himself up for a 1972- or 1984-style landslide. Leading the Democrats, we have former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, reprising a militant anti-war role previously played by Sen. George McGovern (S.D.), who carried only Massachusetts and the District of Columbia in 1972 against President Richard Nixon. Next in line is Rep. Richard Gephardt (Mo.), who closely resembles 1984 candidate Walter Mondale, the tax-raising favorite of trade unions and other Democratic interest groups, who carried only Minnesota and...
  • Dean May Be a Leftie, But He's No McGovern, Mondale or Dukakis - He's a George Wallace

    A friend in New Hampshire who attended one of Dean's campaign rallies out of curiosity, commented that he cannot remember a situation where he saw so many angry and resentful white people. In a recent speech, Dean compared the situation of Americans today, to that of Americans during the Revolutionary War, in that in both eras, America was under the rule of oppressive kings named George. Dean's political campaigning style sounded familiar. I scratched my head and tried to figure out which past politician had the style of Dean. Then it occurred to me...of course...George Wallace in '68. Dean is...

    <p>ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Senator John F. Kerry pledged yesterday to lead a filibuster in the US Senate to block the appointment of any Supreme Court nominee who opposes the Roe v. Wade abortion rights decision.</p> <p>''There are three words that ought to motivate everybody to guarantee that we have maximum output in this election in 2004. They are simple: the Supreme Court,'' the Massachusetts Democrat told a meeting of party leaders in Minnesota, the longtime home of the late Justice Harry A. Blackmun, who authored the 1973 decision.</p>

    <p>The 2004 Democratic presidential campaign is taking on the trappings of the 1984 contest. There's a glut of candidates - eight then, nine now. They're starting to spend much of their time traveling from one debate to another courting different party constituencies at these political "cattle shows."</p>

    In Oregon, when those Republicans, allegedly protectors of the family from Big Brother, finally took control of the House of Representatives in 1991 the House Speaker appointed a "Children's Care Team" and in the 1993 legislature bills were introduced and passed subsequently establishing those innocent sounding foot-in-the-door "pilot programs".Family Resource Centers in schools have been the result of receiving federal grants as a part of the Goals 2000 Educate America Act. These "centers" serve as the treatment arm of the entire delivery system from abortions to sleep overs for parents and children with sleeping bags in tow as was the...

    Newsmax ^ | 1/26/2003 | Carl Limbacher's religion editor Fr. Mike Reilly notes an eerie similarity between the coming Israeli elections and last year's U.S. Senate race in New Jersey. "Israel's main opposition party, facing disaster in next week's election against Ariel Sharon, is considering dumping its candidate for prime minister," reported Uri Dan last week in the New York Post. Amram Mitzna, the Labor Party candidate for Prime Minister, is under pressure to step aside in favor of elder statesman Shimon Peres. Evidently polls indicate that Peres would be a formidable opponent to Sharon, as opposed to Mitzna, who is a political lightweight. But Mitzna,...

Amram Mitzna, the Labor Party candidate for Prime Minister, is under pressure to step aside in favor of elder statesman Shimon Peres. Evidently polls indicate that Peres would be a formidable opponent to Sharon, as opposed to Mitzna, who is a political lightweight. But Mitzna, a dove who is inexperienced in national politics, declared, "I'm here to stay." Too bad a certain New Jersey Senator didn't show the same courage. Isn't...
