  • Did Massachusetts Schooling/Culture Encourage Boston Bombers To Hate America? Bet Your Bippy

    At least, the Chechen President agrees with me,"Seek the roots of this evil in America," where the Tsnarnaevs were raised," said Ramzan Kadyrov. Islamic ideals, no doubt, were a driving force that drove the Brothers Tamerlan crazy, but there may be joint liability for their radical thoughts, then actions. I by no means am excusing the monsters. They made the decision to kill, no matter who inspired them to hate America. How did Tamerlan Tsarnaev slip by the FBI? Oh, wait a minute - that's President Obama's and Eric Holder's FBI, who have nearly affirmed that, "There is no such thing as...

    Have you ever listened to politicians like Teddy Kennedy and John Kerry and wished you had the perfect retort to really put them in their place? Or maybe you've come up with a great response to one of their inane rants but had no place to air it. I've had the same frustrations. That's why I love it when I get to see someone else do it -- especially when it's not a conservative Republican or someone else with a potential political axe to grind. So today I want to share with you a glorious example of our beloved Lefties...

    WASHINGTON - Sen. John Kerry [related, bio], D-Mass., whose condemnation of the Bush administration's Iraq policies was a cornerstone of his presidential campaign, was one of two senators to vote against the nomination of Condoleezza Rice as secretary of state Wednesday.       Kerry said Rice, who has served as Bush's national security adviser, was a principal architect and defender of Iraq policies that alienated U.S. allies and failed to make the country safer.       ``Regrettably, I did not see in Dr. Rice's testimony any acknowledgment of the need to change course or of a new vision for America's role in...

    The chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party said Monday that it would be "extremely foolish" for Democrats to chose someone who opposes abortion rights to lead the party. Phil Johnston (search), who heads the Democrats in losing presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry's home state, spoke out amid news of former Rep. Tim Roemer's (search) decision to seek the national party's chairmanship. "The fact that we lost the 2004 presidential race by a narrow margin should not result in the abandonment of our party's core principles," Johnston said.

    LEXINGTON, Mass. — Graphic designer Margery Stegman took notice the first time President Bush called his opponent a "Massachusetts liberal" in last week's final presidential debate. She bristled the second time the president tossed the term at Sen. John F. Kerry. Clearly the description was not intended as a compliment. When Bush used the expression a third time, Stegman said, "I thought to myself: How did this become such a pejorative?" So Stegman called her brother, an independent media producer in nearby Needham. Rob Stegman also had winced at the president's verbal triple-punch. It turns out many people in the...

    "He talks about PAYGO. I'll tell you what PAYGO means, when you're a senator from Massachusetts, when you're a colleague of Ted Kennedy ... " —President Bush in the Oct. 14 debate. "As a matter of fact, your record is such that Ted Kennedy, your colleague, is the conservative senator from Massachusetts." —Ibid. "[O]nly a liberal senator from Massachusetts would say that a 49 percent increase in funding for education was not enough." —Ibid. As a liberal, I long ago got used to name-calling from conservatives, even ones who occupy the Oval Office. (If liberalism itself were as unpopular as...

    President attacks Kerry's liberal record By Alec Russell in Washington (Filed: 08/10/2004) President George W Bush will tonight intensify his efforts to brand his rival as too liberal and defeatist, in a debate that has assumed a critical place in the race for the White House. Senator John Kerry's staff expect a fusillade of attacks on his long and liberal record in the senate, as Mr Bush attempts to make up the ground he lost in the first presidential debate last week. The President meets the people of Wausau, Wisconsin Convinced by their own propaganda, many Republicans sat down to...

    Insight on the News ^ | September 28, 2004 | Horace Cooper
    The Democrats have once again nominated for presdent a politically flawed candidate -- an East Coast liberal. And although we're almost six weeks away from election day, Kerry is almost certain to lose. And when that happens a familiar pattern will ensue: his party will proclaim the loss "unexpected" and will seek to rewrite history to explain it. You'd think the Democrats would understand the smart play would be to regroup and take a candid look at why their party has had so little success nationally winning only three times since 1968. You'd be wrong. More likely they'll do what...

    Kerry knew in 2002 when he was preparing his "search committee" that, if his Senate record became an issue or was even talked about on talk radio, they would start at the beginning: 1985. If they did, he knew he was done-for. So he had to come up with some way of distracting conservative talk radio. I guess he rolled the dice and figured he would rather weather the storm over his post-Vietnam activites than have anyone talk about his first four years as a Senator. He probably figured his military record was enough to pull a few pro-military/anti-Bush conservatives...

    To the astonishment and dismay of Democratic politicians, John Kerry over the last weekend appeared to have forgotten his opponent for president. He did not seem to realize that he was running against George W. Bush, not Howard Dean. That was an understandable conclusion to be drawn from the Democratic nominee's course over four days. Last Friday, Sen. Kerry abruptly returned to the safely buried gun control issue by decrying President Bush for permitting the assault weapons ban to end. On Saturday, he addressed the Congressional Black Caucus with a liberal harangue. On Sunday, Kerry rested. On Monday, Kerry was...

    Kerry’s pit bull: Ted K comes to the rescue - again WASHINGTON - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy [related, bio] is riding to John F. Kerry's rescue again, hitting the trail to blast President Bush [related, bio] in hopes of jolting Kerry's slumping campaign back to life. Kennedy - who propped up Kerry with appearances in Iowa, New Hampshire and Wisconsin when the junior senator ran aground during the primary season earlier this year - will campaign across the country starting in Pennsylvania this week. He's also planning a behind-the-scenes fund-raising and political organizing effort. ``George Bush knows he can't win...

    ONE of the more interesting things John Kerry has done in 30 years in US politics is a stint as the number two to Michael Dukakis as governor of Massachusetts. Like much of the non-military part of Kerry's CV, however, this period has been little mentioned in the 2004 presidential campaign. Indeed, poor Dukakis has been noticeable by his complete absence from this year's contest, airbrushed out of Democratic history like an early Bolshevik in Stalin's Russia. The 1988 Dukakis presidential campaign against George Bush Sr is now widely acknowledged to have been among the most jaw-droppingly inept in modern...

    Jackson himself uttered a veiled criticism of Kerry this week, telling CNN that ''Mr. Kerry is reaching out, but he needs more than a shake-up. A shake-up cannot just be a vanilla shake. It has to be a bonding of the base." In 1988, Jackson overcame initial doubts about Massachusetts Governor Michael S. Dukakis, and the Dukakis campaign provided Jackson with his own plane to travel the country and help motivate black voters. This year, said Lynch of the Kerry campaign, Jackson ''will have his own plan, he will not have his own plane," but acknowledged that logistics of Jackson's...
