  • Gun control: What Obama could learn from Mandela

    Losing the vote on gun control in the Senate last week was a huge political blow to President Obama. While 90% support the Second Amendment and only 49% of the population support tougher gun laws, the president pushed through with his proposals regardless. Blaming the NRA did not help his cause as polls showed that the Manchin-Toomey bill was voted down because it would have had no impact on gun crime or future mass-shootings. It only made more legal gun sales subject to federal databases, but did nothing about illegal gun sales or mental health or any of the issues...

    "Shove it!" That's the shocking kiss-off that Rhode Island's Democratic candidate for governor gave President Obama yesterday when he found out the campaigner-in-chief wouldn't be endorsing him. "He can take his endorsement and really shove it," a furious Frank Caprio said in a radio interview just hours before Obama touched down in Rhode Island to fund-raise and campaign for congressional hopefuls there. After his campaign said last week that Caprio would be honored to have Obama's backing, the Democrat was singing a different tune yesterday. "What I'm saying to President Obama very clearly is, I'll wear as a badge of...

    One of the stories coming out of CPAC this year is the embrace of the tea party movement not by the Republican Party, but by the conservative movement. The issues of spending and smaller government are shared across the board. But while conservatives are embracing the tea party movement, Republican Senators continue castigating tea party activists and hoping they shut up and go away. The latest is Senator Orin Hatch who is petrified that tea party activists might elect Mike Lee and defeat Bob Bennett in Utah. The Hill reports: Speaking to constituents at a town hall, Hatch warned Tea...

    [...] The Pickens Plan, which could be overly ambitious in this financial crisis, calls for a conversion from oil products to natural gas in vehicles, first by phasing in two million new heavy trucks - roughly the entire fleet of big rigs that move goods around the country. Trucks account for about a quarter of the amount of oil we import every year. "If you don't buy into natural gas, you're not buying into the Pickens Plan as a bridge to the future?" Rose asks. "That's right," Pickens agrees. "Anybody, whether it's Sarah Palin or George Bush or John McCain,...

Neither Penn nor Rep.

She insisted that John Kerry discussed energy issues every day and claimed that she frequently talked about "sustainability." But their comments were not reported. What did get covered...

    Coming in Newsweek soon: Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, presented a host of behind-the-scenes drama for Kerry. Early on, the campaign staff regarded Teresa as something of a hypochondriac, and she canceled three trips in October at the last minute, usually for what was described to aides as a "nonspecific malady." Kerry's first campaign manager, James Jordan, had little patience for her strong opinions, sending emails trashing the candidate's wife...which inevitably reached his rivals within the campaign, including Bob Shrum (an old Teresa friend) and helped seal Jordan's eventual dismissal. One of the reasons I began to suspect Bush would...

Kerry made the sweeping appeal to women before an audience of about 1,000 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, seeking to improve his standing among women voters who, in polling to date, have been supporting Bush in numbers that bode well for the Republicans and worry Democrats. Kerry said women still are paid 76 cents for every dollar men are paid, and promised that,...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) ó Teresa Heinz Kerry's son said his mother was talking about "things like voter suppression" when she told Pennsylvania delegates to the Democratic National Convention last month that "un-Pennsylvanian and sometimes un-American traits" were creeping into American politics. "Un-American traits are things like voter suppression, lying about people and their records," Chris Heinz said. "It's been happening in American politics for years; it's not just Bush-Cheney, but they are a big part of it. "They have spent $90 million to lie about my stepfather's record, to try to pretend that being complicated and smart is a problem....

    I came back from vacation raring to gripe about how we in the press conveniently overlook significant details on these catchy little stories we go bonkers over. Details like the roar of the crowd in the Des Moines ballroom where Howard Dean screamed his immortal Scream. Details like a full characterization of the journalist Teresa Heinz Kerry told to "shove it." Then, I discovered just how far behind the curve a blissful few days in the West Virginia mountains can leave you. See, for example, this and this.

July 29, 2004 Since Sunday night I've waited for a single journalist to get this story right, this story of an ugly lie that's been reduced to an adorable quip. I'm referring to the shocking story of a First Wife wannabe lying to a reporter, insulting him and then getting not only a pass but an "attagirl" from a press corps so hungry for any sign of life from the Democrats that they've repackaged the...

    The journalist whom Teresa Heinz Kerry told to "shove it" after rejecting a question he asked her after a speech says he has received death threats in the aftermath of the incident. Pittsburgh Tribune-Review editorial page editor and columnist Colin McNickle says the reports of the confrontation with the wife of Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry were used by liberals to "demonize not only me but the Trib," he wrote in a column yesterday. Teresa Heinz Kerry As WorldNetDaily reported, in a speech July 25 to her home-state delegates to the Democratic National Convention, Heinz Kerry used the term "un-American"...

    Before telling a reporter to "shove it" last week, Teresa Heinz Kerry complained that there were "creeping, un-Pennsylvanian and sometimes un-American traits" to the presidential campaign. Few people outside of Wilkes-Barre care much about the epithet "un-Pennsylvanian," but in dropping the "un-American" bomb she highlighted an important truth about today's politics: It is the Democrats who routinely question the GOP's patriotism, not the other way around. This makes for a fascinating stew of cognitive dissonance, transference, and probably odd psychological maladies yet to be identified and labeled. It's not easy to question the patriotism of people you are denouncing for...

    NY DAILY NEWS....LLOYD GROVE Just because Teresa Heinz Kerry is a billionaire doesn't mean that she doesn't pinch pennies. I hear that folks at George's Salon in Washington's Four Season Hotel - where Democratic nominee Sen. John Kerry's wife gets her nails done - are complaining that the Heinz Ketchup heiress wants the manicurist to service her at home, a few blocks from the luxury hotel in Georgetown, but is balking at the $90 charge. Last week, a Lowdown spy overheard a George's manicurist say that Heinz Kerry has been haggling over the fee for her home manicures - three...
