    Former Vice President Joe Biden bemoaned the tone of Trump-era politics at a campaign stop in Iowa on Tuesday, previewing on his first trip to the leadoff caucus state how he might take on the Republican president should he seek the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. “It’s our leaders who need to set the tone and dial down the temperature and restore some dignity to our national dialogue,” Biden said in Cedar Rapids while stumping for Iowa’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate and a House candidate from northeast Iowa. […] Biden quickly pivoted from pleasantries to attacking Trump’s moral leadership, indirectly charging him...
  • Gormley: Canada outplayed on NAFTA

    At first glance, it is easy to chalk up the train wreck that is the NAFTA re-negotiations to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s bad luck. But in politics, there’s an old saying that you make your own luck. And there should be some tough questions asked and accountability demanded on how it all came to this: a last minute “take it or leave it” ultimatum for Canada to sign a trade deal seemingly reached between Mexico and the United States while Canada watched from the sidelines for five weeks. Two years ago, when a populist presidential candidate tapped into NAFTA as...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is set to sit down with President Donald Trump Monday in a White House meeting that could help patch their relationship, which fractured in a big way over the summer, when the two leaders took shots at each other over health care reform and the effectiveness of Congress. Back in August, Trump said he was “very disappointed in Mitch,” after McConnell said Trump had “excessive expectations” about the legislative process. The meeting comes as conservative groups demand McConnell step down from his leadership role. “We call on all five members of the GOP Senate leadership...

    Donald Trump is meeting with his harshest critics Monday and the people who arguably got him elected ... the media. Sources in Trump's camp tell us ... he's meeting with all the network heads Monday at 1 PM ET, and Trump will not hold back. We're told he wants to talk to them about how they got it so wrong during the campaign. TV execs will show up today, and Tuesday he'll do the same with the NY Times execs and others. Trump's end game for the meeting is unclear, but we're told crow will be served.

    Here's the bad news: our country is in a financial hurt box.  Here's the worse news: the people with all the financial answers are being fined almost a quarter of a million bucks in handling their own money.  Are you sure you want these guys to have more of your money? This weekend an audit by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) was released showing major financial errors and money mishandling by the 2008 Joe Biden Presidential campaign.  It seems Joe and his folks were sloppy with bookkeeping and took excessive and inappropriate contributions.  The money handling was so bad that...

    "I was reading my copy of the New York Times the other day," she said. "Booooo!" replied the crowd. "I knew you guys would react that way, okay," she continued. "So I was reading the New York Times and I was really interested to read about Barack's friends from Chicago." It was time to revive the allegation, made over the weekend, that Obama "pals around" with terrorists, in this case Bill Ayers, late of the Weather Underground. Many independent observers say Palin's allegations are a stretch; Obama served on a Chicago charitable board with Ayers, now an education professor, and...

    “There is a lot of interest, I guess, in what I read and what I’ve read lately. Well, I was reading my copy of today’s New York Times and I was interested to read about Barack’s friends from Chicago. “I get to bring this up not to pick a fight, but it was there in the New York Times, so we are gonna talk about it. Turns out one of Barack’s earliest supporters is a man who, according to the New York Times, and they are hardly ever wrong, was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that quote...

    "This is not a man who sees America as you see it and as I see America," Palin said today. "We see America as the greatest force for good in this world. If we can be that beacon of light and hope for others who seek freedom and democracy and can live in a country that would allow intolerance in the equal rights that again our military men and women fight for and die for, for all of us." She then continued, "Our opponent though is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he's palling around...

    Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2005 11:48 p.m. EDT Hillary Clinton: Bush Ruined Bill's FEMA 2008 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency was better organized to deal with disasters like Hurricane Katrina while her husband was president - an approach, she said, that was "rejected" by President Bush. "FEMA was the lead agency during the Clinton administration; it was in charge," Mrs. Clinton boasted during a conference call with reporters. "James D. Witt, the director, understood how to deal with emergencies."

    Fiedor Report On the News #320 ^ | 10-10-04 | Doug Fiedor
    The title of this article could very well be: Trial lawyer debates senior executive and comes off looking lost and befuddled. For the first time, Senator John Edwards met Vice President Dick Cheney. One would think that since Edwards has been a senator for a few years he might have, at some point, met the President of the Senate, Vice President Cheney. However, John Edwards, like John Kerry, isn't very good about showing up for work. Therefore, even though they were in the Senate together for the last four years, the two men had only met in passing. Actually, Cheney...

    I had a "drug problem when I was a young person. I was "drug to Sunday School; I was "drug to church on Sunday mornings. I was "drug" to church on Sunday nights and I was "drug to church on Wednesday nights. I was "drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card or did speak with respect. Those "drugs" are still in m;y veins, and they affect my behavior in nearly everything I do, say, and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin. If more children had this...

    Roger Moe is conceding at this hour. A whiny, sanctimonious speech about how his campaign played by the rules and did not make promises he will not keep, and oh yes, how uncle Wally will win the Senate seat.
