  • Romney: Sarah Palin’s the ‘best thing’ that could happen to me (Whistling past the graveyard?)

    For any other candidate, raining on a presidential announcement parade would be seen as sabotage. Not former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The 2012 presidential candidate told CNN’s Piers Morgan Monday that he wasn’t offended when former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin appeared in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire on the same day he was set to formally announce his intention to seek the 2012 GOP nomination for president. In fact, though Romney shared his plans one week in advance and Palin insisted on keeping the destination of her top-secret bus tour under wraps until the day before her New...

    GOP megastar Sarah Palin’s bus tour rumbled toward the Hub last night, driving into a Republican Party furor as her headline-grabbing East Coast trip threatened to overshadow today’s presidential announcement by party front-runner Mitt Romney. “She will certainly be in New Hampshire to rain on Mitt’s parade,” wrote Massachusetts GOP spokesman Tim Buckley in an e-mail obtained by the Herald. Bay State GOP officials confirmed yesterday that Buckley wrote the e-mail, but said it was a private exchange and not an official communication. “I guess she blew in with the storm,” sniffed state House minority leader Bradley H. Jones (R-North...

    <p>Twisting the political knife in a bit further Palin said that appealing to the tea party will be a “big challenge” for Romney.</p> <p>Romney’s campaign did not respond to an email seeking a response to Palin’s comments.</p> <p>Palin’s jab is a clear sign that even if she chooses not to run for president, she will almost certainly be a major factor in the race. That’s not great news for the frontrunners since Palin delights in being a thorn in the side of the establishment.</p>

    Pinging the collective wisdom of Free Republic here . . . The Issue Punks are setting off "Bootleg Cracker" fireworks outside my home -slash- my neighbor's homes, beneath city-owned trees that line the sidewalk. These are the evil devices: Now, they may not look like much in this picture, but they're about the size of a can of Pringles potato chips, and inside, they're stuffed with 200-250 firecrackers fused to go off within 2 to 3 seconds. So what you get is one big, elongated explosion, and since the city-owned trees are no more than 10 yards from our homes,...

    Paris Olympics failure is a blow for Chirac Wed Jul 6, 2005 7:16 PM BST By Timothy Heritage PARIS (Reuters) - Paris's defeat by London in the race to host the 2012 Olympic Games was a bitter blow for French President Jacques Chirac that was all the more painful because he lost out again to his rival Tony Blair. Chirac badly needed a victory to lift his political fortunes after a French "No" vote on the European constitution that left him sorely wounded and a furore over comments attributed to him criticising British food. The prime minister not only emerged...

    Two down… Filed under: Sweden Iraq- Billy (Stockholm, Sweden)@ 8:24 pm Yesterday we noted that Ulf Hjertström, the sexagenarian Swede who survived a 67-day kidnapping ordeal in Baghdad, reportedly was paying professional bounty hunters a handsome fee to track down his erstwhile captors. Expressen, a Swedish tabloid, picked up the story and got in touch with Hjertström to get the lowdown. Hjertström, an oil broker whose career took him to Iraq 25 years ago, makes no bones about the decision to exact revenge on his abductors. “I’ve lived [in Iraq] for a long time. This is how things are done...

    STATEMENT FROM [NEW YORK STATE REPUBLICAN] CHAIRMAN [SANDY] TREADWELL “What happened today is an outrage to every American, particularly Hispanic Americans, who have watched a perfectly qualified judicial nominee be denied a confirmation vote for partisan political reasons. What Senator Chuck Schumer did leading the fight against Miguel Estrada was wrong and appalling and he should be held accountable." "I am going to ask Miguel Estrada to return home to New York and run against Chuck Schumer for the United States Senate.”
