  • John Kerry Thinks Bush Rigged The 2004 Elect

    The Daily Caller ^ | 15 Dec 15 | Blake Neff
    A profile of Secretary of State John Kerry published Sunday in The New Yorker reveals that, 11 years after his election loss to George W. Bush in 2004, Kerry still believes he was robbed via systematic fraud. The article itself, written by David Remnick, focuses mostly on Kerry’s efforts to achieve peace and democracy in the Middle East, but it also dwells extensively on his presidential defeat more than a decade ago. “In 2004, when Kerry lost the Presidential race to George W. Bush, who is widely considered the worst President of the modern era, he refused to challenge the...
  • Matthews, Hardball Panel Mock GOP Women, Rural Virginians; ‘They’ve Got an Attitude’

    Prior to Donald Trump’s rally Monday night in Dallas, Texas, Chris Matthews and the panelists on MSNBC’s Hardball mocked Republican women and voters from “southwestern Virginia” of Scots-Irish heritage who’ve “got an attitude” and previously supported Democrats like Jim Webb. Exhibiting why Democrats have been disappearing from offices in areas along the Appalachians, Matthews wrote them off as white people “like Pat Buchanan” of “Scots-Irish down in southwestern Virginia...where they’re kind of – the people that went to the mountains when they immigrated to the United States, they went right to the rural areas and they've got an attitude.”

  • Santorum's College Lesson

    The American Spectator ^ | February 29. 2012 | Andrew Cline
    Rick Santorum is stretching his criticism of President Obama's advocacy of universal college attendance into a broader attack on college itself. Santorum has three college degrees, which provides a good indication of how seriously one should take his assault on what he is labeling as Obama's elitism. As with so many of Santorum's statements, this criticism contains a grain of perception smothered in reactionary dogma. [BIG SNIP] In a nation in which almost everyone aspires to upward mobility, how is this a winning political argument? Sure, colleges are hothouses of liberalism. They have been for generations. And yet Americans of...

    I was curious to see what would happen to Rick Santorum after being subjected to the harsh glare of the media spotlight, now that he's the Republican flavor of the week. It speaks highly of him that one of the worst things you can say about him is about a comment he made about college attendance. On MSNBC Monday night, Ed Shultz expressed shock that Santorum would say that President Obama is a snob for insisting that everyone goes to college. The progressive media framed his comment like this: "President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to...

    Kerry: Yacht story 'our fault' By: Andy Barr July 30, 2010 07:50 AM EDT Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said Thursday that he and his office mishandled the politics surrounding tax questions on his new $7 million yacht. “I don’t think I dealt with it fast enough, effectively enough. There’s nobody to blame but myself for that,” Kerry said Thursday in an interview with the Boston Globe. Throughout the weeklong story, Kerry has insisted that he will pay whatever state taxes are owed – estimated to be $500,000 – on the yacht. Kerry has so far not had to pay Massachusetts’...

It will always see ANYone of the right in this way. A verifyable record does not matter, the truth is what they want it to be and only their opinion counts. Oh there are a few beauties on the right as well. Their guy can do no wrong. Their rep is misunderstood and on and on. They are just as wrong. When a person can...

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. John Kerry must have been channeling his inner Letterman yesterday. The Bay State senator was telling a group of business and civic leaders in town at his invitation about the “bizarre’’ tale of how South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford had “disappeared for four days’’ and claimed to be hiking along the Appalachian Trail, but no one was really certain of his whereabouts. “Too bad,’’ Kerry said, “if a governor had to go missing it couldn’t have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin.’’ The Democratic-centric crowd laughed. Of course, Kerry couldn’t know that 24-hours...

    "I am the Speaker of the House. I don’t get into that." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is defiantly ignoring Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge -- who spent much of the week nitpicking her stimulus bill on issues ranging from STD prevention funding to cash for the re-sodding the National Mall. "I am the Speaker of the House. I don’t get into that," she said at her weekly press conference just now, when asked about their impact on the stimulus debate.

    At her weekly press conference this morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked about criticism from Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge over the massive stimulus package that the House passed yesterday. "I don't speak to that," Pelosi said. "I'm the Speaker of the House. I don't get into the popular culture." Politico has the video. As Glenn Thrush notes, the conservative pair "spent much of the week nitpicking her stimulus bill on issues ranging from STD prevention funding to cash for the re-sodding the National Mall."

    ContentType:Spot Development; ContentElement:FullStory; Breaking:True; By MIKE GLOVER and DAVID ESPO Associated Press Writers DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Despite John McCain's prediction of an upset, Barack Obama reached for a landslide Friday, invading his rival's home state with TV ads and building a lead in early voting in key battlegrounds as the presidential race headed into a hectic final weekend. McCain charged that Obama, bidding to become the first black president, "began his campaign in the liberal left lane of politics and has never left it. He's more liberal than a senator who calls himself a socialist," he added in...

    I'll link to a favorite article by Noonan, from 2007, where her elitist snobbism was really on parade in a minute. I do think it's important to say that Noonan was fired from the Reagan Administration under Donald Regan. Granted, Donald Regan, himself, was fired eventually. But what's interesting is that Noonan wasn't invited back. Here's the relevant paragraphs from that long-ago article about Noonan being forced to 'engage' with lowly working class New Yorkers: "I walk into a shop on Madison Avenue daydreaming, trying to remember what it was I thought last week I should pick up, what was...

    Barack Obama is a "decidedly liberal" senator "who was finding his feet, and then got diverted by his presidential ambitions", according to a frank verdict delivered to Gordon Brown by the British ambassador to the United States. Sir Nigel Sheinwald, ambassador in Washington since last year, delivered his unvarnished assessment of the White House front runner in a seven-page letter to the Prime Minister, obtained by The Daily Telegraph, just before the Democratic nominee's visit to Downing Street just over two months ago. The candid letter, marked as containing "sensitive judgements" and requesting officials to "protect the contents carefully" gives...
