    Baltimore Ravens fans gave running back Ray Rice a standing ovation as he jogged onto the field during training camp practice on Monday, according to the team's website. Rice acknowledged the cheering fans by pointing to the crowd. Rice was seen on video in February dragging his then-fiancée out of an Atlantic City casino elevator. He was charged with third-degree aggravated assault after Janay Palmer, whom he later married, was left unconscious following the incident. Rice agreed to enter into a diversion program to avoid a jail sentence. More: Lenient penalty for Ray Rice troubling proof of where NFL's priorities...

    President Obama was welcomed by the Black Knight of the Hudson for his speech at West Point on Wednesday, but less than 25 percent of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction, the Daily Mail reported. “Receiving tepid applause and a short standing ovation from less than one-quarter of the audience upon his introduction, Obama argued for a contradictory foreign policy that relies on NATO and the United Nations while insisting that ‘America must always lead on the world stage,’ the paper reported. During his speech, which the Wall Street Journal called “consistent with that of every...

    I often keep the Catholic network EWTN on in the background as I do housework. This afternoon featured live programming from the 130th Supreme Convention of the Catholic fraternal and charitable organization the Knights of Columbus from Anaheim, California. It's estimated that around 2,000 members of the Knights of Columbus will attend the convention. The theme of this year's convention is Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land. At the opening session of the convention the Knights announced they had letters of greeting from leaders of several of the nations with large representations at the meeting. The first one read was...
  • Newt grabs himself a South Carolina lifeline. Gingrich wins debate as Mitt Romney stumbles

    Newt Gingrich's fluent, policy-rich performances in the early debates, laced with derision for the media's attempts to question the Republican candidates, propelled him to the front of the GOP pack in early December. His command of the stage here in Myrtle Beach for the 16th (yep, there have been that many, and the next is in Charleston on Thursday) could just be the lifeline he needs to achieve the task he has set himself - overcoming Mitt Romney's clear lead in the South Carolina polls to win the state on Saturday. Romney was under pressure over releasing his tax returns...

    Charleston (WV) Daily Mail ^ | January 17, 2012 | Don Surber
    Newt Gingrich apparently won Monday night’s debate on Fox News, but likely this is a case of a last-second touchdown when you are down by two touchdowns. Seth Leibsohn of National Review Online gave the night to Newt: “When he is right, he is great. The ongoing problem is when he is wrong. But tonight he was right — about a lot, and said it better than anyone.” Newt showed his Tea Party side: I think it’s very important for us to look at job creation. As a young member of Congress, I worked with President Ronald Reagan. We passed...

    Frank Lunz was on the FOX Post Debate Analysis last night after South Carolina Debate. He made the statement that in 16 years of following Debates, that was the first time he'd ever seen a candidate get a Standing Ovation. Newt did not just get a Standing "O" from his supporters but, by-and-large from the entire crowd when he defended his comment about Barack Obama being the "Food Stamp President" and his stance on young Blacks needing a work ethic rather than government assistance. Newt didn't just "knock it out of the park" once last night. He "knocked it out...
  • Video: Democrats give Mexican president standing ovation for dumping on Arizona

    I’m at a loss. I know they have to pander to Latinos ahead of the midterms, especially with amnesty D.O.A. in the Senate. But I don’t see how applauding a foreign leader — whose country is almost singlehandedly responsible for America’s endless immigration battles — for slamming a fantastically popular state law is a net gain in votes. They’ve already been saddled with the narrative that they can’t stop apologizing for America; you’d think they’d try extra hard here to simply sit in respectful silence while he does his shpiel rather than leaping out of their seats to grandstand. As...

    Palin didn't hint at her 2012 plans in her keynote address to SRLC, but she did provide some meaty thoughts on energy policy, possibly her most important campaign issue if she does decide to run. "Republicans need to hit the road in 2010, and show America what an all-of-the-above energy policy looks like," she said. Alaska is a leading producer of crude oil, and Palin has been an outspoken opponent of Obama's cap-and-trade proposals, which have been a stalled agenda item for his administration. But Republicans have the opportunity to steal that issue away from him, said Palin. "It's an...

    Some people noticed that many reporters rose from their seats last Friday when President Obama unexpectedly entered the White House briefing room, but the same courtesy was not always extended in the past when President Bush would make an appearance. Comparison videos were even posted on YouTube. It’s a long-standing practice for reporters to rise when the president enters the East Room for a news conference, but that hasn’t been the case in the briefing room. I checked with two colleagues who served as senior wire service reporters during the Bush Presidency and who, in matters of press protocol, the...

    American Spectator ^ | November 09, 2008 | Robert Stacy McCain
    Last month, McCain staffer Michael Goldfarb made an appearance on CNN in which he accused Barack Obama of having "a long track record being around anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, anti-American rhetoric." But, under repeated questioning, Goldfarb refused to "name names," because John McCain had forbidden bringing up Rev. Jeremiah Wright. The effect of the interview was to make Goldfarb look ridiculous as he repeated, "I think we all know who we're talking about." Now, in a Weekly Standard article by Stephen Hayes, we learn that when Goldfarb returned to the McCain campaign headquarters, his colleagues gave him a standing ovation.

    Washington — Senator John McCain delivered some harsh criticism of Senator Barack Obama’s foreign policy at the opening session of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference Monday. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee told the crowd at the annual policy conference of the pro-Israel lobbying powerhouse that his Democratic rival’s talk of negotiating with Iran would lead to no results “except an earful of antisemitic rants.” The Arizona senator received a standing ovation when he blasted Obama for not supporting a Senate resolution demanding the designation of Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terror group. At the time of that...

    LAKE FOREST, Calif. – Within days of introducing a $50 billion plan to combat AIDS, Sen. Hillary Clinton received a standing ovation at one of the nation's most influential evangelical churches after addressing its "Global Summit on AIDS and the Church" today. If the Democratic presidential frontrunner's aim was to make inroads into the heavily Republican evangelical electorate, her appearance at Saddleback Church with pastor and "The Purpose Driven Life" author Rick Warren apparently didn't hurt. Saddleback Church member Cindy Logan told WND after Clinton spoke to some 1,700 conference attendees that as a Republican, the senator's visit was "a...

    Although he is finding it difficult getting support in Washington for his resolution to censure President George W.

Only hours after a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the resolution, which brought Feingold more criticism than support, the senator was back in Madison at the Monona Terrace Convention Center as the keynote speaker for the AIDS Network banquet, an occasion at which the maverick Democrat even had some words of praise for the president he seeks to censure....

GOP delegates gathered in San Jose gave Schwarzenegger a standing ovation when he spoke to them Friday night as he declared that "the Republican Party is my home.'' McClintock did his part Saturday to fire up the base, delivering a rousing pro-Schwarzenegger speech clearly aimed at wavering party loyalists.

It's especially true when you've had a very long week. Thankfully, Harry Whittington is on the mend and doing very well."

    SOMETHING very interesting happened on Friday in Baltimore: Rudy Giuliani showed up and got a standing ovation. Now that doesn't sound surprising, given the wild popularity of the former New York mayor across the country. But the occasion was a commencement address at Loyola College of Maryland, a Catholic school. When he found out that Giuliani was to be the speaker at commencement, William Cardinal Keeler said he would not attend because Giuliani has pro-choice views. Anti-abortion groups in Maryland vowed they would rally hundreds to demonstrate against the former mayor. In the end, six whole people showed up -...
