  • Why not Gov. Mike Pence in 2016?

    If you’re wondering why this otherwise prosaic Bloomberg piece about Pence’s national future begins with a mention of the Koch brothers, it’s probably because the guy who wrote it worked for Paul Sarbanes and, briefly, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz before resuming his career as an impartial reporter.But never mind that. Is Pence the dark horse? “I have no doubt that he would make a great president,” said Steven Chancellor, the chief executive officer of Evansville, Indiana-based American Patriot Group, the parent of a company that makes ready-to-eat rations for the Pentagon. “He certainly distinguished himself in the House” and is “off...

Guess what, Jeb its going to be an act of love for millions of Republicans and independents to vote against you in the Republican presidential primaries in 2016. A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave, Jeb said Sunday. You couldnt pry these illegals out of here with the Jaws of Life.

His paintings are on public display for the first time at "The Art of Leadership: A Presidents Personal Diplomacy, an exhibit at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas. Before the exhibit opened, Bush said none of the leaders in his display had seen their portraits, but he predicted they would react favorably.

    The use of wood from Baltimores basilica to construct a seed chest given to Pope Francis by President Barack Obama March 27 points to the history of American Catholicism and Baltimores role in it, said Monsignor Arthur Valenzano, rector of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Im very pleased, Monsignor Valenzano said of the gift. It gives us another chance to get the word out nationally, and now internationally, about the role that the basilica played and continues to play in the United States. Robert S.

But no doubt Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos would have liked the video of his speech over the weekend in the coastal city of Barranquilla to have gone viral because of the power of his message, or mesmerizing oratorical style, instead of The Spot. Video of the speech shows a spot appearing and spreading on Santos pants which unfortunately were a light tan color during his speech to supporters.

It brought to my mind that one of the most popular refrains one hears from the media is that we should respect the office of the President. Like any slogan or piece of propaganda that is repeated incessantly, you nod and agree. But why? What does respect the office even mean? Synonyms for respect include: reverence, admiration, esteem, veneration, high opinion. But if the slogan is...

"We have so many problems and we have so little leadership," Trump said at the session in suburban Washington. "It's all about the leadership." He cited China's move this week to devalue its currency against the American dollar, as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin's assault on Ukraine as examples of the United States' decline as a world power.

    On this date in 1801, the fourth presidential election in the United States' history was finally decided. Presidential electors (which at that time could vote for two candidates) had cast 73 ballots each for Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr. This caused the election to be decided in the House of Representatives, which cast 36 ballots in 6 days. For the first 35 ballots, Jefferson won 8 states - one short of the required 9. Finally, on the 36th ballot, representatives from Maryland and Vermont changed their votes, giving Jefferson 10 states and the win. The Constitution was amended in 1804...

Deal website Groupon launched a Presidents Day tie-in of $10 off when customers purchase a $40 coupon for a local business. The problem is, the promotion honors President Alexander Hamilton -- who was never president of the United States. According to, the promo calls Hamilton "undeniably one of our greatest presidents and most widely recognized for establishing the country's financial system." Hamilton, the nation's first secretary of the Treasury, was killed by Vice President Aaron Burr in a pistol...

    The Washington Post ^ | 23 Nov 2013 | George F. Will
    For concision and precision in describing Barack Obama’s suddenly ambivalent relationship with his singular — actually, his single — achievement, the laurels go to Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.). After Obama’s semi-demi-apology for millions of canceled insurance policies — an intended and predictable consequence of his crusade to liberate Americans from their childish choices of “substandard” policies sold by “bad apple” insurers — Scalise said Obama is like someone who burns down your house. Then shows up with an empty water bucket. Then lectures you about how defective the house was. What is now inexplicably called Obama’s “fix” for the chaos...

    On Thursday, Fox News Ed Henry tweeted that MSNBC hosts Ed Schultz and Lawrence ODonnell, as well as Ezra Klein of the Washington Post and Fox News Juan Williams, had been invited for a private off-the-record chat with President Obama. Obamas signature program, Obamacare, has been flailing in the press for weeks, and Obama apparently believes that it is about time to reshift the narrative:

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the Senates most unabashedly progressive member, told the Burlington Free Press on Friday that he may run for President in 2016 if there is not a suitably liberal candidate. Sanders, who identifies as a Democratic Socialist, cited the need for a candidate who can tamp down on Wall Street, oppose austerity cuts and tackle climate change.

    Hewitt imposed a lighting round format on Krauthammer during the interview and asked for one word descriptions of the current likely field of presidential candidates heading into 2016. Krauthammer called New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie a frontrunner, Ohio Gov. John Kasich interesting and possible, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker young, ambitious, and brash. The conservative columnist added, I like him. Of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Krauthammer said he was very strong and could be a contender. A lot of energy and a great orator, Krauthammer said of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). He was cautious about Sen. Marco Rubios (R-FL) political...

    or Mitt Romney, the 2012 election was held about a year too early. Romney would hold a slight lead on President Obama if the 2012 election were replayed today, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The poll of registered voters shows Romney at 49 percent and Obama at 45 percent in the rematch, a mirror image of Romneys four-point (51-47) popular-vote loss in 2012.

    Lately Bill Clinton has not been doing the president many favors. First, the "is" definition-challenged former president had some harsh words about Obamacare, and most recently in an overnight question-and-answer session before a standing-room-only crowd in a Beijing hotel ballroom, Clinton who was in Beijing for meetings with Chinas President Xi Jinping as well as to promote the work of his New York-based philanthropic organisation, the Clinton Foundation, while withholding comments on Obama - whose approval rating has plunged to an all time low - refused to criticise Edward Snowden. Instead he said he believed it was "perfectly legitimate"...

    Politico ^ | 11/12/2013 | By BEN WHITE and MAGGIE HABERMAN
    NEW YORK There are three words that strike terror in the hearts of Wall Street bankers and corporate executives across the land: President Elizabeth Warren. The anxiety over Warren grew Monday after a magazine report suggested the bank-bashing Democratic senator from Massachusetts could mount a presidential bid in 2016 and would not necessarily defer to Hillary Clinton who is viewed as far more business-friendly for the partys nomination. And the fear is not only that Warren, who channels an increasingly popular strain of Occupy Wall Street-style anti-corporatism, might win. That is viewed by many political analysts as...

    If you like your heath care, you can keep it. If you like your doctor, you can keep that too. Period. This has now been proven false by any standard of measure. And we now know it was a lie. We now that because his own White House fact checkers charged with vetting each speech before it is given found that this was not true before it was ever said. They tried to change it. But the changes were not strong enough to win the hearts of the people, and his re-election depended upon that. So he said...
