    We just haven’t gotten assurances if they had to cast the votes how they would vote.”–Ted Pitts, president of the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce The business lobby has turned up the heat on U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott of South Carolina to reject President Donald J. Trump’s nominee to run the U.S. Export-Import Bank. The National Association of Manufacturers said on Aug. 22 that it had launched radio and online ads in South Carolina calling on the senators to oppose the White House pick, former New Jersey Rep. Scott Garrett. A radio script released by NAM says...

    President Donald Trump on Friday picked former Republican Congressman Scott Garrett of Wantage to lead the U.S. Export-Import Bank, an institution Garrett has spoken out against. Garrett, who represented New Jersey's 5th District for seven terms, was defeated in November by Democrat Josh Gottheimer. During his time in Congress, at a town hall in Lafayette in May 2015, Garrett said he would favor doing away with the Export-Import Bank, which makes loans to companies doing business overseas. And at a congressional hearing in 2014, he said, "when you mix big corporations and taxpayer-backed guarantees, you get a little something that...

    Thousands will be out of work after insulation scheme backflipMalcolm Farr and Alison Rehn February 20, 2010 11:16AM ENVIRONMENT Minister Peter Garrett will keep his job but thousands of workers will be sacked after the abrupt scrapping of the disastrous $2.5 billion household insulation scheme yesterday. And Mr Garrett's own department admitted that as many as 80,000 homes across the country may have been left with insulation that does not comply with the official guidelines. The announcement was a dramatic retreat from hardline Government support for the rebate project and a severe political bruising for Mr Garrett and Prime Minister...

    Is fuzzy math a new math? Fox’s Major Garrett, among others, tried to hold WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs feet to the fire on the “jobs saved or created” fuzzy math coming from the White House. Garret wonders, when you have 500,000 people filing for unemployment each week, how can you crow about 600,000 jobs? Gibbs answer is classic.

    The White House has carefully excluded briefing-room regular Major Garrett from its fatwa against Fox News, because even though he's sometimes a jerk, all White House reporters are sometimes jerks (except one). And they are probably feeling good about that this week, because Garrett has come down with swine flu, and is staying largely off the air and outside of the White House. (As opposed to, say, becoming a human virus bomb and taking out the enemy from within.) Mediaite claimed the story earlier today, using one of our favorite tactics (emphasis ours): "After a summer of Celebrity Swine Flu...

    It's a familiar sight. Touring teenagers perched on the Capitol steps, listening with varying levels of attention to their representative welcoming them to where laws and history are made. But Scott Garrett uses the occasion his own way. "I explain something they won't hear anywhere else,'' says Garrett, a four-term Republican congressman from New Jersey's 5th District. "They won't read it in textbooks." So he describes the rise of the Supreme Court from a relatively weak office to a third, co-equal branch of government. Part of why it happened, he says, was the erection 75 years ago of the neoclassical...

    Garrett leaves Dems blue He pulls shocker: An easy GOP win Thursday, November 06, 2008By Jim Lockwood, Star-Ledger Staff This time, U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett, (R-5th Dist.) surprised even himself. As the reddest of Republicans in one of the bluest of states, Garrett, 49, of Wantage, Sussex County, has made a political career out of defying conventional wisdom and confounding critics and opponents. Known as the most-conservative congressman in New Jersey -- and the Northeast -- Garrett defeated three prior Democrats by double-digit margins, but this year faced his toughest race against Democrat Dennis Shulman, 58, a psychologist and rabbi...

    As if Palin hasn't had to deal with enough, Major Garrett just completely smeared Palin a little while ago on Hannity & Colmes. He basically mocked Palin as needing to be more prepared because she couldn't even cite McCain's request for more regulation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when Katie Couric asked her to cite examples. Well, Mr. Garrett who gets paid lots of money to cover the election campaign (he travels with the Obama camp), how about you actually have a clue what you are talking about before you open your mouth. Hold your self to the same...
