Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) lashed out at Sen. Scott Brown on Wednesday as he expressed confidence that Democrats could hold on to the Massachusetts seat if Sen. John Kerry is nominated to a Cabinet position. Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Reid ridiculed Brown’s calls for bipartisanship, saying the defeated Republican “should look up in the mirror.” "I saw his plea for bipartisanship,” Reid said dismissively. “That is a big joke. It’s a travesty. He’s one of the most partisan people [who has served].
Sore winners. Never seen such sour grapes in a group that got a "mandate". Party is over my Dem friends, now it´s time to clean up and take responsability for all those broken dishes and overflowing ashtrays, oh, and you need to come up with a good explanation of why the liquor cabinet is empty.
Reid is acting like there is something chemically wrong with him. He is the winner, he is in charge, but is acting like a pathetic, paranoid skid row bum. Or perhaps like a spiteful little bullying child. He belongs to the cool crowd, so he can puff up his chest a bit and strut.
The Dems commit massive voter fraud and they think they can do anything and be rude about it too. "I won" mentality. Reid knows they committed mass fraud (because that is how he got his seat a half lifetime ago). Now that he knows it worked on a national level, he thinks they are invincable and can say anything. Sick. Someone needs to investigate the mass fraud during the elections. There must be some way to do it.
Harry the heinous hypocrite heretic is a Mormon BTW, media. Where did all the stories go/
One story could delve into why Harry the Heinous doesn´t get tossed from the ultra conservative church. The answer is that politics and religion should be separate and participation in one shouldn´t preclude participation in another with conflicting values? Judgement in Heaven is another matter.
Liars go to the lowest part of Hell theologically but Harry has no worries here and now. LOL? So he is at it again, setting up Brown for defeat by demonization even before the seat is vacated. I believe the old lying father of three lobbyist sons had some untrue snarks to deliver about fellow Mormon Mitt Romney? Where are his loyalties? To Harry--kind of remember that if he is ever placed in any position where he makes life or death decisions--but wait, maybe he does or facilitates them.
Harry is after the super majority so his power grows. Absolute power, Harry? Kind of what Satan wanted, plus all the glory, in his alternate plan? Directly opposite of the Mormon belief in the freedom to choose for maximum spiritual growth.
Tyrannical Harry as he fosters the spread of socialist power in Amerika? Don´t like Harry.
What number 10 said: "Partisan? Brown the RINO?"...Indeed! "since you are neither cold nor hot, i will spew you out, sayeth the lord..." That is the admonition that Brown should have heeded...instead he loses to "lieawatha"... the dimwit, vapid,fake lawyah, carpetbagger,Affirmative Action Indian fraud...backed by the DEM machine...and has to get publicly excoriated by the likes of that sniveling little worm of a man... the traitorous Harry Reid... If you have cojones... Take your revenge!
Senator Reid has shown signs of mental instability. Rep. Pelosi has shown signs of mental instability. Vice President Biden has shown many signs of mental instability. And all have shown signs of extreme corruption. This is what we´re dealing with, folks. Our future is in their hands.
Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh began his Thursday afternoon program by addressing the possibility that he and such other well-known conservatives as Sean Hannity and Mark Levin might moderate debates of Republican primary candidates during the 2016 election cycle as a departure from the previously biased questioning at such events by obviously liberal journalists. “I don’t see how I can do it,” he stated. “I’m too famous,” and he added that his presence would “overshadow” the event, though Limbaugh admitted that deciding whether to take part in a radio debate “would be a real, real, real tough call” since
The leader of the secret court that is supposed to provide critical oversight of the government’s vast spying programs said that its ability do so is limited and that it must trust the government to report when it improperly spies on Americans. The chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court said the court lacks the tools to independently verify how often the government’s surveillance breaks the court’s rules that aim to protect Americans’ privacy. Without taking drastic steps, it also cannot check the veracity of the government’s assertions that the violations its staff members report are unintentional mistakes.
The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008, according to an internal audit and other top-secret documents. Most of the infractions involve unauthorized surveillance of Americans or foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are restricted by statute and executive order. They range from significant violations of law to typographical errors that resulted in unintended interception of U.S. e-mails and telephone calls.
Conservative radio host Michael Savage teased a “major announcement” on his website earlier today, and tonight, he delivered. Savage predicted that he will be replacing Sean Hannity’s time slot on Cumulus Media’s network of stations. While Hannity’s fate appeared to be tied to that of Rush Limbaugh in the initial reports on the Cumulus move, Mediaite has learned from a talk radio source Limbaugh is likely to stay. Mediaite has also learned from multiple talk radio sources that Savage’s prediction will likely be confirmed soon. “I predict, right here, right now, that I Michael Savage and the Savage Nation is
As a reaction to the crack epidemic of the 1980s, many federal drug laws carry strict mandatory sentences. This has stirred unease in Congress and sparked a bipartisan effort to revise and relax some of the more draconian laws. Traditionally — meaning before Barack Obama — that’s how laws were changed: We have a problem, we hold hearings, we find some new arrangement ratified by Congress and signed by the president. That was then. On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder, a liberal in a hurry, ordered all U.S. attorneys to simply stop charging nonviolent, non-gang-related drug defendants with crimes that,
This afternoon, The White House issued a short statement saying President and Michelle Obama´s two children, Sasha and Malia, arrived on Martha´s Vineyard today to spend the rest of the week with their parents vacationing on the Island. The White House closely guards the privacy of the two children, and did not release any information about where they spent the first part of the week. World affairs intruded on the president´s down time this morning. At about 10:30 am Thursday, from his Chilmark vacation home, President Obama addressed the assembled White House and local press pool about the escalating unrest in

John Adams and his son, John Quincy, were the second and sixth presidents. George H.W. Bush and sonGeorge W. were 41 and 43. Joe Kennedy dreamed of sending three or four sons to the White House and might have succeeded with two or three, but tragedy intervened. Throw in a few Cuomos, Daleys, Rockefellers and Tafts, and for a republic founded on aversion to kings and royal rogues, political dynasties have prospered here. Family ties can make politics profitable in the entertainment culture, where celebrity trumps all. President Obama last month nominated Caroline Kennedy to be the U.S. ambassador to Japan,
Any movie that casts Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan certainly has a piquant sense of humor, but the prankishness of “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” — so named after a title dispute with the MPAA — undermines the serious statements this star-spangled film is striving to make about race, class and politics. Along with missing the movie’s ever-migrating point, viewers may be forgiven for wondering whether “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” might have been titled “Lee Daniels’ Forrest Gump” — its hero challenged morally rather than mentally, but watching history in Gumpian fashion, as a series of cameos viewed through a slightly
Chef Julia Child would have turned 101-years-old on this day. The American chef is known for bringing French cuisine to American in a way that was simple enough to understand. Good Morning Texas spoke to a chef at a French style restaurant located in Cedar Hill about Child´s influence on French cooking. "When I first got started, I never actually went through culinary training," said Aaron Gros, Eclair Bistro chef. " I learned my basics studying cookbooks. The first book which I actually used is Julia Child´s cookbook."
In December of 2008, David Gregory took over as the permanent host of NBC´s "Meet the Press," the then-41-year-old current affairs show and longest running program on network television. Over two years later, Gregory was in first place and even drawing the same number of viewers as his predecessor, Tim Russert. The beginning of Gregory´s ratings fall would finally arrive in May of 2011, when Gregory accused Newt Gingrich of racism for using the words "food stamps" in reference to President Obama. With all the talk about Meet the Press losing its first place standing and hitting ratings lows not
NEW YORK- Kurt is a 32-year-old IT systems administrator from Des Moines, Iowa. He has a colleague who had been prescribed "ridiculous amounts" of Vicodin for a chronic back problem. His colleague offered him some of the pills. Soon Kurt was taking them three to four times a week to get high and relax. "I had been prescribed Vicodin before so I knew the effects," he said. "I would come home, take a couple and pour myself a drink, to help me unwind." He is not alone. One in 10 Americans admit taking a prescription drug they have not been prescribed,
President Obama´s former personal aide said Wednesday that the president was so "irritated" by controversy over his birthplace that he wanted to hold an "impromptu press conference" when he discovered the long-form version of his birth certificate, only to be dissuaded by his advisers. Reggie Love, the former body man to the president, told UCLA´s Luskin School of Public Affairs that the delay in producing the president´s birth certificate was because when "your parents don´t live together (and) you travel all over the world, documents get lost." "He wanted to just have an impromptu press conference, just walk in to
Questions have been raised over financial dealings within the Clinton family charity that may cause problems for Hillary Clinton´s possible 2016 presidential run. New reports have revealed that the Clinton Foundation has been ´in the red´ for years even though the charity has raised hundreds of millions of dollars each year, showing the high cost of running the worldwide charity. Former President Bill Clinton called in a team of lawyers to help examine the charity´s financial standing over a year ago and they drew some unsettling conclusions. A scathing article in The New York Times tells how the ´rotating board
Soon after the 10th anniversary of the foundation bearing his name, Bill Clinton met with a small group of aides and two lawyers from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett. Two weeks of interviews with Clinton Foundation executives and former employees had led the lawyers to some unsettling conclusions. The review echoed criticism of Mr. Clinton’s early years in the White House: For all of its successes, the Clinton Foundation had become a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and
The Missouri chapter of the NAACP appealed for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Secret Service to launch an investigation and open a federal case against the rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Obama’s face and mocked with the crowd: Do you want to see a bull run down Mr. Obama? The NAACP says the clown was guilty of inciting violence against the president. In a statement reported by Breitbart, the NAACP’s state president, Mary Ratliff, wrote: “The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our president are serious and warrant a full
There is no way to sugarcoat it: Egypt stands on the brink of a bloody, nasty civil war, and, at the very least, sustained civil unrest and sectarian violence. The current confrontation between the Egyptian military and radical Islamists — led by the Muslim Brotherhood — will not end well and the MB and its allies will not go quietly. The Brothers — the original modern Islamic terror group and the ideological source of both al-Qaeda and Hamas — are in no mood to negotiate or compromise. Think about it: After decades of patience, stealth, and gradualism,
The only surprise here is the source. The details are all too familiar: Employers around the country, from fast-food franchises to colleges, have told NBC News that they will be cutting workers’ hours below 30 a week because they can’t afford to offer the health insurance mandated by the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. “To tell somebody that you’ve got to decrease their hours because of a law passed in Washington is very frustrating to me,” said Loren Goodridge, who owns 21 Subway franchises, including a restaurant in Kennebunk. “I know the impact I’m having on some of
Four West Pensacola juveniles and a 19-year-old attacked a 77-year-old man Monday night, according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office news release. Demetrius Wilson, 12, Javontae Wilson, 13, and Keyon Black, 16, are each charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery on a person older than 65 years of age. Alicia Wilson, 15, and Shaknee Golay, 19, are each being charged with aggravated assault on a person older than 65 years of age. The incident happened about 9 p.m. Monday when dispatchers received a report of several teenagers chasing a man with a stick, the news release said. The victim,
Reggie Love says he and President Obama played cards during the Osama bin Laden raid, and that the president told him, "I can´t watch this entire thing." (Snip for video)"“Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [President Obama] was like, ‘I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing,’ We must have played 15 games of spades,” said Love at a public event. Love was Obama´s "body man," and spent much time with his boss while he worked for Obama at the White House.
The Missouri State Fair will force rodeo clowns to complete sensitivity training after a clown mocked President Obama in a stunt one spectator likened to a Ku Klux Klan rally. The fair’s commission also approved a lifetime ban on the offending clown. The controversy began on Saturday at the fair in Sedalia. A clown in an Obama mask with a broom handle attached to his backside moved into the arena as another clown called out over the microphone, “This bull’s going to get’cha, Obama! He’s gonna get’cha!” The fair commission has called the stunt “unacceptable,” and approved a measure that would
Climate change will lock the world into more frequent and severe heatwaves in the next few decades, researchers have claimed. They say there will be a ´several-fold´ increase in heatwaves up to 2040, regardless of how much carbon dioxide goes into the atmosphere, but future efforts to slash pollution could stem the rise in extreme heat events later on in the century. The last decade has seen an exceptional number of extreme heatwaves around the world, hitting the U.S. in 2012, Russia in 2010, Australia in 2009, and Europe in 2003 with damaging impacts on health, the economy, agriculture and
President George W. Bush’s daughter Barbara said she would like to see Hillary Clinton run for president in 2016. Barbara Bush, 31, called Clinton “unbelievably accomplished” in an upcoming interview with People magazine, saying she wants to see the former first lady mount a campaign. The former Republican president’s daughter said that her respect for Clinton wouldn’t necessarily mean she would vote for the former secretary of state, however.
Frustrated by his failure to convince House Republicans to vote for his amnesty legislation, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., threatened conservatives that President Obama would unilaterally give all illegal immigrants amnesty if the House does not vote on his bill. Speaking to Tampa’s, Fla.., WFLA, Rubio said, “I believe that this president will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress, to issue an executive order as he did for the Dream Act kids a year ago, where he basically legalizes 11 million people by the sign of a pen.”
