  • Hillary Clinton's choice of Tim Kaine shows she's the grown-up in this contest (Barf, Barf, Barf)

    One candidate paraded his veep choices through Twitter and openly mused about their qualifications. The other kept her shortlist confidential and her opinions private. One had instant regrets about his decision. The other always seemed to be heading towards the same destination. One needed a safe pick to balance his own volatility. The other chose a safe pick because they are kindred souls in earnest wonkery. Both in the manner of their selection and the content of their character, the veep picks of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton open yet another chasm between the Republican and Democratic nominees. Don’t be...

    Mary Matalin, a high-profile political pundit and veteran strategist for the Republican Party, changed her party registration to Libertarian from Republican, she said on Thursday. But in an interview with Bloomberg, which reported on the switch, she emphasized that her decision was not connected to Donald J. Trump’s being the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. She described herself as a voter as a “provisional Trump” and a “never Hillary,” referring to the leading Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. Pressed on Thursday about why she switched political parties, Ms. Matalin told Bloomberg Politics that she was a Republican in the “Jeffersonian, Madisonian sense.”...

  • Did Obama Administration Play Favorites With Energy Loans?

    When the White House announced the federal government would loan $465 million to Tesla, a California start-up company with plans to develop an all-electric sedan, President Obama called it an "historic opportunity to ensure that the next generation of fuel-efficient cars and trucks are made in America." The loan also represented a lucrative opportunity for Steve Westly, a major investor in the car company who had raised more than $500,000 for the president's campaign. In 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy lent more than half a billion dollars to companies backed by Westly's California venture capital firm. In 2010, the...

    Special to FreeRepublic ^ | 30 October 2009 | John Armor (Congressman Billybob)
    Late last week, in the dead of night. President Obama made an unannounced trip to Dover, Delaware, where he was photographed saluting some flag-covered coffins that were coming in from Afghanistan. There were 18 coffins on this day. And afterwards, Obama said that this experience “would influence his decision” on troop levels and future policies in the war in that Afghanistan. Well, first I fault the press. I’ve been saying for years that reporting on war casualties, in Iraq, Afghanistan, or wherever, is defective. The national importance of casualties should be gauged by relative casualties in other, American wars. It’s...

    Chris Parry of the Vancouver Sun recently wrote an article about a bunch of nasty comments posted about Obama’s daughter Malia on Free Republic: “A typical street whore.” “A bunch of ghetto thugs.” “Ghetto street trash.” “Wonder when she will get her first abortion. “Could you imagine what world leaders must be thinking seeing this kind of street trash and that we paid for this kind of street ghetto trash to go over there?” wrote one commenter. blah, blah, blah snipped Those comments are pretty stupid. As much as I dislike Obama and his policies and his lack of honest...
  • Political Interference Seen in Bank Bailout Decisions; Barney Frank Goes to Bat for Lender

    01/21/2009 6:44:21 PM PST · by Brilliant · 17 replies · 999+ views
    Troubled OneUnited Bank in Boston didn't look much like a candidate for aid from the Treasury Department's bank bailout fund last fall. The Treasury had said it would give money only to healthy banks, to jump-start lending. But OneUnited had seen most of its capital evaporate. Moreover, it was under attack from its regulators for allegations of poor lending practices and executive-pay abuses, including owning a Porsche for its executives' use. Nonetheless, in December OneUnited got a $12 million injection from the Treasury's Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP. One apparent factor: the intercession of Rep. Barney Frank, the powerful...
