    **SNIP** "What makes this man different than anyone else?" he asked. "The president is elected to negotiate." "We treat the tea party like they are some kind of disease, and the very same thing on the other side the press don't even cover it," continued Zell, chairman of Equity Group Investments. "Can you imagine the press vilifying the ACLU?" Zell said he's "not a big tea party fan at all," but added that they are "significant percent of the voting population" with a "right to have a view."

    Here's something he said earlier: The topic (in advance of today's phony unemployment numbers) was how to get companies to hire workers. Lots of back & forth. But here is the kicker: Zell mentions that while Obamacare was about to come up for the final, miserable vote he went to Capitol Hill to "lobby" a couple of lawmakers. Reminding them that this kind of bill with so much uncertainty built into it, was guaranteed to put a chill on employment. Here is the exchange he relayed to the host.

    Zell: Obama Has Lost His Focus on Economy Thursday, July 1, 2010 09:04 AM By: Dan Weil The White House has mishandled the economy, and the solution is a victory by Republicans in elections this November, says real estate titan Sam Zell. “We have to get our economy back in line,” he told CNBC. “We have to focus on creating jobs. So far the programs of this administration seem to be focused on a lot of ideological issues and not on jobs.” Non-farm payrolls rose 431,000 in May, but only 41,000 of those jobs were in the private sector. “The...

    The policies of the current U.S. administration have created "political risk" to investing in the United States, billionaire real estate investor Sam Zell said on Wednesday. Appearing on a panel at the Urban Land Institute's real estate summit in Boston, Zell said "what's going on now is frightening" and working to undermine confidence, although he allowed that an economic recovery is under way. "Up until this administration, you knew the rules and had a very stable environment," Zell said. Never one to mince words, Zell said he saw similarities that are "a little eerie" between Nero's Rome and the United...

    Disgruntled Tribune Co. bondholders have asked a U.S. bankruptcy judge to let them investigate Sam Zell's 2007 buyout of the newspaper-and-television chain in an effort to derail a plan that would hand the company over to its banks. The filing, made late Wednesday, calls the $8.2 billion transaction a "fraudulent conveyance" that left Tribune insolvent from the onset of the 2007 deal. It accuses senior lenders led by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. of completing a leveraged buyout they should have known would push the company into bankruptcy. "Fraudulent conveyance" is a legal term most often used in bankruptcy court,...

Zell Miller said Thursday that America is “spending like we’re Paris Hilton.” But the comparison to the blonde socialite might not be the worst offense in Miller’s litany of all that’s wrong with the country. Speaking to more than 1,000 conservative - overwhelmingly Republican - lawmakers from around the country, Miller said, “Today, we’re spending like we’re Paris Hilton, regulating like we’re Ralph Nader, nationalizing like we’re Hugo Chavez, printing money like we’re the Weimar Republic and taxing like we’re, well, the Democratic Congress.”

    In 2007, Sam Zell, the billionaire Chicago investor, sold a portfolio of 573 properties he had assembled over three decades, Equity Office Properties Trust, to the Blackstone Group for $39 billion. It was the largest private equity deal in history, but Blackstone did not stop there: it immediately flipped hundreds of the buildings for $27 billion. Today, the wreckage of those purchases is strewn across the country, from Southern California to Austin, Tex., to Chicago to New York. Many of the 16 companies that bought Equity Office buildings are now stuck with punishing debt, properties whose values are plummeting and...

    Conventional wisdom holds that U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald ordered the FBI to arrest Rod Blagojevich before sunrise Tuesday in order to stop a crime from being committed. That would have been the sale of the Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. But the opposite is true: Members of Fitzgerald’s team are livid the scheme didn’t advance, at least for a little longer, according to some people close to Fitzgerald’s office. Why?

    Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich bragged that the owner of the now-bankrupt Chicago Tribune agreed to fire top editorial writers in exchange for $100 million in state aid, according to an indictment released yesterday. The alleged quid pro quo was laid out in the 78-page corruption indictment of Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris. Blagojevich was thrilled when Harris reported that the financial adviser to the Tribune Company, owned by Sam Zell, suggested that the ax would fall on his editorial critics.

    Tribune has hired bankruptcy advisers as the ailing newspaper company faces a potential bankruptcy filing, people briefed on the matter said. The newspaper, which was taken private last year by billionaire investor Samuel Zell, has hired advisers including Lazard and Sidley Austin, one of its longtime law firms, these people said. Tribune has been hobbled by debt related to that sale last year, which has been compounded by the growing drought of advertising for newspapers. It is only the latest — and biggest — sign of duress for the newspaper industry yet.

    One problem with managing a bunch of print journalists is that when you fire them — or cut their budget, or the size of their newspaper — they are still journalists, prone to grumbling about whatever they consider unfair. At the Tribune Company, the grumblers have found an outlet in a blog, Tell Zell, that lets them rip into Sam Zell, the Chicago real estate mogul who took Tribune private last year for $8.2 billion. The blog, set up in May, is mainly an encyclopedia of gripes about cutbacks at The Los Angeles Times, though other Tribune papers, like The...

    Sam Zell vs. The Future Billionaire takeover artist Sam Zell has a problem. It has nothing to do with the financial structure of his proposed takeover of the Tribune Co., or the fact that he openly admits to knowing next to nothing about the newspaper business. No, Zell’s problem is that he seems to be fundamentally opposed to the one thing that could save newspapers like the LA Times. Speaking to a group of Stanford Law School students last week, Zell asked rhetorically: “If all the newspapers in America did not allow Google to steal their content for nothing, what...

    Since taking control of the Tribune Company in December, Sam Zell has drawn a lot of attention in journalism circles for speeches laced with profanity, political incorrectness, insults and self-deprecating humor. But all the twittering and tut-tutting over Mr. Zell’s remarks — and his suggestions that some reporting jobs are not needed — masks a more serious concern. With the newspaper industry going through an unexpectedly sharp contraction, Tribune is struggling under $12.8 billion in debt, and its financial condition has deteriorated, creating what specialists say is a very real risk of credit default in the next year or so....

    There is good news from Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, GA. I just spoke with public relations at the hospital, and they said that Zell Miller has been discharged. He gave us a scare last night when he was rushed to the hospital. They could give no more details, but I expect we will have them soon.

    WASHINGTON - For one night only, it'll be spitballs and Swift Boats together on the same stage — a who's who of Sen. John Kerry bashing. The American Conservative Union on Thursday announced it has tapped Sen. Zell Miller D-Ga., to present the "Courage Under Fire" award to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth at the Conservative Political Action Conference's Feb. 18 banquet. Miller and the group of Vietnam veterans were behind perhaps the campaign's two fiercest and most memorable attacks on Kerry's unsuccessful presidential bid. Miller, who is retiring next month, scorched Kerry in a Republican National Convention keynote...

"FNC surprised many by beating ABC, CBS and NBC in head-to-head ratings competition on both nights...

    Welcome Instapundit readers! We hope you'll take a look around and bookmark us if you like what you see. That Zell Miller will join a white shoe law firm on K Street won't surprise many Beltway insiders. After all, that path is well trod, and for good reasons. Money, prestige, and the opportunity to stay in the game by hobnobbing with establishment elites are sufficient grounds for many politicians to hang around Washington long after they -- or voters -- end their term in office. But Zell Miller is a bit different from most of his colleagues, as his embrace...

    Some quotations from the farewell speeches of departing senators: * Zell Miller, D-Ga.: "I did not come to this Senate expecting events to unfold as they have. I guess I am living proof that politics is not an exact science. ... After all the words of caution that I hope fathers still give their sons, Polonius ended with these words: 'This above all: to thine ownself be true. And it must follow, as the night the day. Thou canst not then be false to any man.' I have always believed that and I have tried to live that."* John Edwards,...
