    There's fresh evidence here of the unthinkable: Florida's biggest Republican stars, former governor Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio, run the risk of losing their state's winner-take-all primary next year to an out-of-state contender. A loss in their home state could force both Bush and Rubio out of the presidential race after March 15, when Florida and three other states will hold the first winner-take-all primaries.
  • In Iowa, Republican field wide open as moderates stake their caucus claims

    Less than a year before Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses, it appears that every Republican contender is making a serious play to win the state, setting up what is likely to be one of the most active, competitive campaigns here in recent memory. Political observers in Iowa say that the field is wide open and that numerous candidates have a legitimate shot to win or do well enough to come out with momentum. That is partly because moderates in the Iowa Republican Party, led by Gov. Terry Branstad, have reasserted themselves into the caucus process after watching social conservatives dominate in 2008...
  • Prison system is failing America by Newt Gingrich and Van Jones

    The numbers are arresting. If Americans under correctional supervision counted as a city of their own, they would form the largest city in the United States after New York. The number of people in prison, on parole or on probation, 6.9 million Americans, exceeds the populations of the second- and third-largest cities, Los Angeles and Chicago, combined. Or the size of the next four -- Houston, Philadelphia, Phoenix and San Antonio -- put together. Thirty-eight U.S. states are home to fewer people than live under the corrections system in this country. There are about as many people behind bars as...
  • Pins and Panders - Obama Rises above it

    Sometimes I think the best thing about Barack Obama is that little empty space on his lapel. It is where other politicians wear their American flag pin, a kitschy piece of empty symbolism that tells you nothing about that particular person except that he or she thinks like everyone else. Obama's flag, invisible to the naked eye, is the Jolly Roger of a politician thinking for himself. The flag pin issue arose last fall when someone noticed that Obama was campaigning in the patriotic nude. Following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, wearing the pin had become de rigueur for politicians. Obama...
  • Op-Ed: Questions About the Guest Worker Program

    President Bush has proposed, and the Senate is currently considering, a guest worker program. While the issue has sparked a rancorous debate, there has been little discourse about the many ramifications of such a program. Here are some questions for which many Americans would like to hear some answers: 1. Will spouses and children be able to accompany the guest worker? Just minor children or adult ones as well? 2. Will any or all of the above be able to demand government services in the language of their choice, per President Clinton's Executive Order 13166? Will the workers be required...

    Indeed, the belle of the ball at the convention is noted patriot Michael Moore, who apparently thinks Americans who voted for George Bush deserved to be killed on 9/11. The day of the attack, Moore wrote this on his Web page: "Many families have been devastated tonight. This is just not right. They did not deserve to die. If someone did this to get back at Bush, then they did so by killing thousands of people who DID NOT VOTE for him! Boston, New York, D.C. and the planes' destination of California -- these were places that voted AGAINST Bush!"...

    Governor Jeb Bush PL 05 The Capitol 400 South Monroe Street Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001Dear Gov. Bush: Ever since I came to Florida, I’ve been duly impressed by you both as a person and as a leader. I cannot, however, stand behind your intention to allow illegal aliens to obtain driver licenses. Indeed, I strongly oppose it, and I will do everything in my power to ensure that it does not come to pass. Allow me to elucidate. These people are called “illegal aliens” because they entered our country illegally. They should not even be here. Granted, it is not possible...

    Whatever It Is, They’re Against It David C. Stolinsky, M.D. Wednesday, May 14, 2003 I don't know what they have to say, It makes no difference anyway. Whatever it is, I'm against it. – Groucho Marx in “Horse Feathers” Total negativism is an appropriate attitude for Groucho’s zany version of a college president. His ridiculous dance in an academic robe still makes us laugh. But negativism is not an appropriate attitude for citizens of a republic. It is still less appropriate for leaders of a great nation. And it’s not at all amusing. When a small child learns he can...
  • PUERTO RICO: ABC Report Highly Critical of Anti-Navy Protesters (Did ABC finally get one right?)

    Those who protested the Navy exercises on Vieques "want bombs to stop falling from the sky, but they want money to keep falling" to Puerto Rico. That more or less was the gist of a critical report, aired Friday night over ABC to millions of stateside viewers, of efforts to keep Roosevelt Roads Naval Station open after the Navy ends exercises on Vieques on May 1. The report, featured on the 20/20 news show by commentator John Stossel, suggested that keeping Roosevelt Roads open after the Navy leaves Vieques was "a waste of taxpayer money." Stossel, who usually hosts a...

    Gov. Calderon said Thursday that she has "temporarily" postponed moving forward on the status issue because of a lack of consensus between the island's three political parties and the U.S. war with Iraq. "I have temporarily postponed this subject, in light of, first, that a consensus was not achieved with current leadership, and, secondly, because of the war and other situations compelling the U.S. Congress, which at this time would make an approach by one or two [political] parties unproductive," Calderon said. "I understand that until the people of Puerto Rico go before the U.S. Executive and U.S. Congress in...
  • PUERTO RICO: Engineers At Base Say Navy Will Shutter All Ceiba Facilities (4,000 JOBS LOST!)

    Three engineers who work for the Navy predicted Tuesday that the Naval Station Roosevelt Roads in Ceiba will be shut down entirely. Three instrumentation engineers - Juan Lugo, Angel Ramos and Miguel Sierra - disagreed with Vieques Commissioner Juan Fernandez and Ceiba Mayor Antonio Cruz, who maintained the base will not be shut down because the Navy is investing money to restore and purchase equipment for the facility. The three who work with the Atlantic Fleet Weapons Training Facility, a Navy division whose main function is to provide Navy training, were notified that as of Sept. 30, they will no...
  • PUERTO RICO: Acevedo concerned over Navy downsizing at Roosevelt Roads (Oops!)

    Resident Commissioner Anibal Acevedo Vila asked the Navy Monday to look into whether downsizing operations at Naval Station Roosevelt Roads "goes beyond what is necessary and legitimate." In a letter to Acting Navy Secretary Hansford Johnson, the resident commissioner said he was "deeply concerned about conflicting information regarding the intentions of the Navy over future operations" at the Ceiba base. Employees at the base, and others, have charged that the downsizing ordered by the Atlantic Fleet chief Adm. Robert Natter is of a broader scope than just shutting down operations related to the training facility at Vieques. The Navy intends...
