    Rival campaigns’ plan of attack for Anthony Weiner: Hit him where it hurts The city’s mayoral hopefuls are sharpening their knives — and Anthony Weiner better be ready to answer the hard questions about his sexting scandal. Sources in the camps of several campaigns said they have been in dirt-digging overdrive ever since the shamed former congressman hinted he was eyeing a mayoral run that would pit him against an already crowded field, including Christine Quinn, Joe Lhota, Bill de Blasio and Bill Thompson. Potential rivals are aggressively compiling dossiers and detailed lists of questions about the Democrat’s three-year foray...

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg has just brought arrogance to a whole new level. The billionaire says he's not really running against anyone in this year's mayoral election. The Republican-turned-independent is casting the other candidates as irrelevant and says his campaign is a lone effort to advertise his record since taking office in 2002. He says the Democratic candidates who debated Wednesday night "wasted an opportunity'' by attacking him instead of saying why they want to be mayor. At least, he heard that's what they said. He didn't watch the debate because he said he wasn't curious to hear what his potential...

    The whole idea of a National Day of Service on Sept. 11, whether voluntary or not and regardless of who is promoting the idea, ought to make advocates of limited government jittery. I mean, aren't taxes, by which the productive subsidize the nonproductive, enough? How much more service to the government is needed? Where does it end? It reminds me of something that Michelle Obama, in her unintentional imitation of Evita Peron last year, said. Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you…move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be...

    The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry. This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President Obama promised during last year's election campaign. The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service, but...
  • Obama: Too Much Media Emphasis On Health Care Protests

    U.S. President Barack Obama says news organizations are putting too much emphasis on scenes of hostile protesters at public meetings on his health care reform plan. The president received tough but polite questions from Americans Friday in the Northwestern state of Montana. Mr. Obama said most meetings on his plan have been civil, and those that have been disrupted are in the minority. "What you have not seen on TV, and what makes me proud, are the many constructive meetings going on all over the country. Everywhere across the country you are seeing people who are coming together and having...

    BELGRADE, Mont. — President Obama on Friday accused some insurance companies of trying to undermine his plans for overhauling health care by “funding in opposition,” a comment that could inflame tensions at a time when Mr. Obama is hoping to keep insurers at the negotiating table. The president, who did not mention any company by name, made the comment in a question and answer session at a town-hall-style meeting here. He was responding to an insurance salesman who challenged him on why the White House had decided to “vilify the insurance companies” by shifting its strategy from talking about reshaping...

    GUADALAJARA, Mexico — President Obama said Monday that efforts to change the immigration system would be a major focus for his administration only next year, after other major priorities were accomplished, including passage of a new health care system. “It’s very important for us to sequence these big initiatives in a way where they don’t all just crash at the same time,” he said, according to The Associated Press. Mr. Obama, flanked by the leaders of Mexico and Canada, spoke here at a news conference after an annual trilateral summit meeting. Responding to a range of questions on domestic and...

    Here is video of a combative President Obama speaking in McLean, Virginia yesterday where he once again reminded everyone "I am the President," and said he does not want who he called "the people who created the mess" to "do a lot of talking." He said arrogantly, "I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking." Of course, is still trying to lay blame for everything at the feet of those who preceeded him, despite the fact he has engaged in runaway spending ever since taking office. He is trying to spend even more with...

POLITICO 44 SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio - President Obama left the Cleveland area and an afternoon of health care reform events for two Democratic National Committee fundraisers in Chicago, where he struck a defensive and at times defiant tone about his top priority.

    WASHINGTON, July 22 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama shifts his effort to convince the American people healthcare reform is the right thing to do right now to prime time Wednesday. In an evening news conference, Obama is expected to outline the case for healthcare reform as well as provide an update on what has been accomplished since he took office in January. White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told The New York Times Obama intends to use the news conference as a "six-month report card," to talk about "how we rescued the economy from the worst recession" and...

    In a wide-ranging midday press conference, President Obama took on Republican critics of his stance on Iran, directly targeting former rival Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and saying, "I am the president of the United States." Obama, who has been accused by McCain and other Republicans of being too timid throughout the unrest following Iran's presidential elections, has gradually taken a firmer stance in the days following the election. . . . . . "The Iranian people can speak for themselves," Obama said in the James S. Brady Briefing Room. "That is precisely what has happened these last few days. In...

    LOS ANGELES — Even as he conceded there is still much hard work to do, President Obama was in a boastful mood Wednesday night, telling a star-studded crowd at a fundraising dinner that he "would put these first four months up against any prior administration since FDR." The president, speaking to a dinner that included Hollywood A-listers like Kiefer Sutherland, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Foxx, Ron Howard and Steven Spielberg, lauded the legislation he has signed since taking office but added that he is "not satisfied."
