    Wow! Obama went off on National Journal reporter Major Garrett today during his press conference after the thumping he received in the midtern elections. “OK, let’s see. See, they may… OK, medical device tax… I’ve already answered, uh-uh, the question. We are going to take a look at whatever ideas… Let me take a look comprehensively at the ideas that they present. Let’s give em time to tell me… I’d rather hear it from them than from you. Major, you know, uh… conceivably I could cancel my meeting on Friday because I’ve heard everything from you.

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...

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...

    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.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- When Scott Garrett, a New Jersey state representative, ran in Republican primaries against then-U.S. Rep. Marge Roukema in 2000, Garrett was backed by the Club for Growth, a highly aggressive political group run by supply-side enthusiasts in Washington, D.C. When Roukema retired in 2002, Garrett ran in a five-way Republican primary. The Club for Growth endorsed Garrett's candidacy, and helped the anti-abortion, gun-rights conservative win the GOP nomination in a heavily Republican district. Garrett cruised to victory in the general election. Now the Club for Growth faces a major lawsuit from the Federal Election Commission. The bipartisan...

As defined in state law (RSA 635:2), a person is guilty of criminal trespass if, knowing that he is not licensed or privileged to do so, he enters or remains in any place. If were going to have immigration, it needs to be controlled and we need to know whats happening on our borders. Nobody...

    WASHINGTON -- For a low-key guy, Scott Garrett has made a lot of noise during his first year in Congress. Usually, freshmen House members lack the clout or the chutzpah to stand their ground against party elders. But from his vote in January not to extend unemployment benefits to his vote last month against a Medicare prescription-drug plan, the Sussex County Republican has quietly but firmly held to his conservative ideals. Unlike some members, Garrett said he's not in Washington to snare as much federal aid as he can for his northern New Jersey district, which includes all of Warren...

In the midst of the Korean War, he tried to persuade the American people that the United States was on a new course that conflicted with the original conception of the nation.

    Capitol Hill ( - Republicans focused their mid-term election campaigns on homeland defense and the potential of a war with Iraq while Democrats mainly concentrated on the economy, Social Security, and healthcare issues. But for many candidates in both parties, their position on the Second Amendment played a significant role in their election or defeat. Preliminary analysis indicates that, of 24 Senate candidates endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), 21 were elected. The South Dakota Senate race is within the 500-vote margin mandating a recount, and would mean an additional NRA victory if Republican Rep. John Thune surpassed incumbent...

Marge, of course, is the woman Sumers is trying to succeed in Congress: retiring Rep. Marge S. Roukema, who has represented the 5th District for 22 years. Roukema is a Republican, and Sumers is a Democrat, but Sumers says that in this case, voters need to look beyond party labels.
