  • Feminist: Franken Shouldn’t Resign Because He’s A Dem

    She argues that there are probably other Democrats who have committed sexual misconduct, so “if we set this precedent in the interest of demonstrating our party’s solidarity with harassed and abused women, we’re only going to drain the swamp of people who, however flawed, still regularly vote to protect women’s rights and freedoms.”
  • ‘This is what real locker room talk is’: The NFL’s Joe Lockhart levels a shot at Trump

    Washington Post ^ | September 25 | Cindy Boren
    Joe Lockhart, the NFL’s executive vice president of communications, wasn’t messing around Monday. A former White House press secretary under President Clinton, Lockhart used surgical precision in leveling a shot at President Trump, tying Sunday’s nationwide protests by players, owners and coaches to Trump’s infamous “Access Hollywood” recording from his days as a TV star in 2005. “Everyone should know, including the president, this is what real locker room talk is,” Lockhart said in a conference call with reporters. Lockhart’s comment shows that sports and politics in the Trump era aren’t going to be untangled anytime soon and, frankly, that’s...

    Owner Jerry Jones joined his team in taking a knee. The Cowboys then stood up and linked arms for the national anthem. The Dallas Cowboys all took knees on the field and the Arizona Cardinals linked arms across from them before their Monday Night Football game, a move that followed a closely-watched Sunday in which NFL teams and their owners rebuked President Donald Trump’s criticism of athletes protesting during the national anthem.

    .....Obama will be Chuck Todd's first guest on his inaugural broadcast of NBC's "Meet The Press," a source with knowledge of the interview told POLITICO on Thursday. The exclusive interview, which will be announced during NBC's broadcast of the National Football League season-opener, will take place this Saturday at the White House. It will air on Sunday and will cover both foreign and domestic policy, likely including U.S. efforts to combat the Islamic State terrorist organization, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the recent protests in Ferguson, Mo.

    JON SCOTT: You were at the White House. You want to tell us about that? JUAN WILLIAMS: What happened was the White House invited a small group of journalists over to talk with the president. I can't tell you what the president said, that is off the record. But I met with other senior officials at the White House and I can tell you they are in full fight mode over the Affordable Care Act right now. What you hear from these senior officials is, you know, they're concerned about what happened with insurance companies. They wish the insurance companies...

    On Thursday, Fox News’ Ed Henry tweeted that MSNBC hosts Ed Schultz and Lawrence O’Donnell, as well as Ezra Klein of the Washington Post and Fox News’ Juan Williams, had been invited for a private off-the-record chat with President Obama. Obama’s signature program, Obamacare, has been flailing in the press for weeks, and Obama apparently believes that it is about time to reshift the narrative: Juan Williams refused to describe what Obama himself said, but he did state that the White House is in “full fight mode over the Affordable Healthcare Act right now.” He added, “They feel as if...

    President Barack Obama teared up watching "Lee Daniels' The Butler," a celluloid depiction of the US civil rights battle as seen by an African-American who served in the White House. "I teared up just thinking about not just the butlers who have worked here in the White House, but an entire generation of people who were talented and skilled, but because of Jim Crow, because of discrimination, there was only so far they could go," Obama said in an interview with radio host Tom Joyner. "And yet, with dignity and tenacity, they got up and worked every single day," said...

    TIME ^ | Thursday, May 26, 2011 | Joe Klein
    Of all the petty annoyances, misdemeanors and felonies of public life, there is none that Barack Obama detests more than to have his words twisted or oversimplified. It is a big part of his frustration with the media; it is a bigger part of his disdain for the talk-show wing of the Republican Party. And so it wasnt hard to imagine smoke jetting from the Presidents ears as Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, willfully misinterpreted Obamas statement about the need to renegotiate Israels borders — in Obamas presence, in the Oval Office on May 20. The President had...

    In the end, President Obama made a hugely important but unintended contribution to the democracy revolution in Egypt. Because the Obama team never found the voice to fully endorse the Tahrir Square revolution until it was over, the people in that square now know one very powerful thing: They did this all by themselves. That is so important. One of the most powerful chants I heard in the square on Friday night was: “The people made the regime step down.”

    Bill Clinton sought to persuade Rep. Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race for Senate during a trip to Florida last week — and nearly succeeded. Meek agreed — twice — to drop out and endorse Gov. Charlie Crist’s independent bid in a last-ditch effort to stop Marco Rubio, the Republican nominee who stands on the cusp of national stardom. Meek, a staunch Clinton ally from Miami, has failed to broaden his appeal around the state and is mired in third place in most public polls, with a survey today showing him with just 15 percent of the vote....

    Yesterday was a dream. Today is reality. Americanism vs. Communism was a subject taught in High School as a requirement for graduation. Learning about Lenin, Stalin and Mao. The Bay of Pigs and Fidel Castro. The assassination of President John F. Kennedy knowing exactly when and where I was when the news erupted. Watergate. NixonÂ’s resignation and his infamous salute before boarding Marine One for the last time. Watching the news and reading several papers one tends to see outward bias, corruption and manipulation of facts until you wonder WHO and WHAT controls our media. Has an entire mass population...

    Reading this is like watching an unassisted triple play in baseball. You see it, you pause to make sure you’ve seen what you think you’ve seen, and then you marvel at the sheer odds of it having happened. Would a big name at a big magazine like Mark Halperin really sign off on something so absurd, and so fawning in its absurdity, as to be instantly destined for infamy in the blogosphere? Of course not. The odds against it are a million to one. And yet. This is a magic moment, my friends. Instantly comfortable and highly skilled at the...

    On Sunday, CBS Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer praised President Obama’s recent media blitz for health care reform: "There’s no question he is the best salesman on the staff," but wondered: "Does he run the risk of overexposing himself?"’s Roger Simon dispelled that fear: "It is a risk, but he keeps topping himself." Simon elaborated on Obama’s oratory skill: "Every time you think this guy can’t give another speech that’s better than the last one, he gives another speech that’s better than the last one. And he’s achieving his purpose." He added that the President’s address to Congress...

    Even as he declared, “There are many things I like and many things I don’t like” about the Obama administration’s first few months in office, the editorial page editor of The New York Times called Barack Obama “the most extraordinary president of my lifetime.” “If nothing else, the Republican Party’s hysterical reaction to everything he does and says is testament to that fact,” said Andrew Rosenthal. Obama was a central topic of Rosenthal’s May 19 talk from the bima of Temple B’nai Abraham in Livingston, where the Montclair resident delivered a broad-ranging address interrupted by frequent laughter. “What is amazing...
