  • Michael Steele I'm a Republican voting for Joe Biden over Trump. Because I'm an American first.

    So here we are, faced with the re-election of President Donald Trump and the prospect of a nation still struggling against Covid-19, reeling from the ravages of a flattened economy and in pain from civil unrest and our genuine concern for how we treat one another. I, of course, disagree with Biden on many issues and policies, sometimes vigorously; and it is my fervent hope that he will pursue policies that will help our country heal. But this election is not about those issues or policies. Rather, it is about the course of a nation and the character of her...

    Retired four-star Gen. Stanley McChrystal has endorsed Joe Biden for the White House, citing his time working with the former vice president under the Obama administration and saying the Democratic nominee is "someone that you can trust." McChrystal, speaking on MSNBC Thursday morning, said Biden is humble enough to listen to experts, is humble enough to respect people who serve and have served. I think that he would surround himself with an effective team of good people, I think he would set a tone in which he would bring out the best of people. Again, not everyone will agree with...

    Former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Marc Racicot said this week that he would that he will not vote for President Trump in November. I regret that I will cause consternation perhaps in some corners, but even as a Republican, I will not be supporting Donald Trump for president, and I will not be voting for him, Racicot, who is also a former Republican governor of Montana, said during a Tuesday interview on Yellowstone Public Radio. That means I will be voting for Joe Biden for president. Racicot did not provide details about why he was choosing to endorse the...

    KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine Former President George W. Bush on Friday backed Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine in his first public endorsement of the 2020 election cycle. [Cut] Shes honest. Shes forthright. She brings dignity into a world that has gotten really ugly. The political world is uglier than I can ever remember it, Bush said after he and his wife, Laura, had lunch with Collins at the familys summer home overlooking the ocean. Bush called her smart and capable, very influential and pretty darned independent.

    NEW YORK (AP) A new book by former President George W. Bush will highlight an issue which now sets him apart from many of his fellow Republicans immigration. Crown announced Thursday that Bushs Out Of Many, One: Portraits of Americas Immigrants will be published March 2. The book includes 43 portraits by the 43rd president, four-color paintings of immigrants he has come to know over the years, along with biographical essays he wrote about each of them. Bush, who served as president from 2001-2009, has often praised the contributions of immigrants, a notable contrast to President Donald Trumps...

    Isn't it time for W to come off the sidelines, forgive the nickname for Jeb! and help Trump manage the politics of the moment, the hatred and vitriol aimed at him by, in some cases former members of his administration? Much like 9/11, this is a moment when the Nation must come together. We already know the left will never relent. Where are you, Mr. President?

    AUSTIN, Texas Republican George P. Bush, the only member of the Bush dynasty still in public office, condemned Thursday recurring episodes of what he described as racist or hateful rhetoric within the Texas GOP, and ripped what he called false accusations fanned by his Hispanic heritage. Bush, Texas land commissioner, first denounced a white GOP state legislator who suggested Asian challengers on the ballot in 2020 were motivated by race. He then joined others Saturday in calling for the resignation of a Republican county chairwoman near Houston who used a racial slur in a text message about a black...

    Neil Cavuto lamented the polarization of todays society after a photo of daytime talk show host Ellen Degeneres sitting and smiling beside former President George W. Bush was criticized. Sides dont just disagree, they must be disagreeable, and they must stick to script, said Cavuto on Your World on Tuesday. A liberal must never sit with a conservative, a conservative must never utter a kind word about a liberal. Its the same reason why a never-Trumper cant be a now-and-then-Trumper. Youre either all in or just out. Say one thing bad youre just bad, Cavuto said. [] Like [Degeneres] said,...

    A former adviser to 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is pushing House Democrats to impeach President Trump and force Republican senators to vote on Trump's fitness for office. Republican political consultant Mike Murphy called out Democrats in an op-ed for the Washington Post published on Tuesday. Murphy said the time has come to force the impeachment question because of recent revelations of Trump's dealings with Ukraine and the president's asking a foreign government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a political opponent. "The new sins are too big and too obvious," Murphy writes

    President Trump announced Friday that he would un-sign the global arms pact known as the Arms Trade Treaty in the latest illustration of his aversion to international pacts and world governance. We will never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your Second Amendment freedom, Trump said during a speech before the National Rifle Association in Indianapolis. Im officially announcing today that the United States will be revoking the effect of Americas signature from this badly misguided treaty.

    Alan J. Steinbergwho served as an adviser to former President George W. Bushwrote in an opinion piece published this week that he didnt believe President Donald Trump would be removed from office through impeachment. Steinberg, a former Environmental Protection Agency regional administrator, said that he believed Trump would resign in 2019 in exchange for immunity. Trump will not be removed from office by the constitutional impeachment and removal process, Steinberg wrote in The Star-Ledger. Instead, the self-professed supreme dealmaker will use his presidency as a bargaining chip with federal and state authorities in 2019, agreeing to leave office in exchange...
