    President Biden faltered and nearly fell for at least the fourth time going up the steps of Air Force One on Sunday while boarding his flight back to Delaware from Alabama. Biden, 80, visited the town of Selma to commemorate the 58th anniversary of the “Bloody Sunday” march during the civil rights era and push for Congress to pass sweeping election reform before making his perilous way up to the plane hours later.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” CNN Political Commentator and former Obama administration official Van Jones stated that when President Joe Biden “does badly, when he stumbles, you get nervous and you wonder, is it just his stutter, is he tired, or is something else there?” And that “if anybody says that Democrats aren’t beginning to have these questions behind closed doors” about Biden’s age and stamina, “that’s not true.” Jones said, “I think everybody is looking very closely now. I — when he does — when Biden does well, he does really well. That gun speech he gave, he...

    President Joe Biden stumbled over the AANHPI term on Tuesday during a White House event celebrating Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Biden spoke about the AANHPI (Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander) community but stumbled over the inclusive term by referring to the “A-A-N-I-N-H-A-P-I community in the United States” even though he was reading from a teleprompter.

    ROME (Reuters) - Pope Francis had to be helped up the steps to an altar at a Rome basilica on Monday after stumbling in public for the second time in three days. Two church officials flanked the 78-year-old pontiff and took him by the arm as he faltered on his way up the steps during a service in the Basilica of St. John Lateran. On Saturday, the pope tripped on the steps of St. Peter's Basilica, stopping his fall with his outstretched hands, before two aides helped him back to his feet. Last month, the Vatican dismissed an Italian newspaper...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve extended its support for a slowing U.S. economy on Wednesday, sounding a bit less optimistic about growth and saying it will keep buying $85 billion in bonds per month for the time being. In announcing the widely expected decision, Fed officials nodded to weaker economic prospects due in part to a fiscal fight in Washington that shuttered much of the government for 16 days earlier this month. The Fed indicated the recovery in housing had lost some steam, while noting some reversal in a recent spike in borrowing costs. "Available data suggest that household...

    Ed Schultz, liberal radio host and MSNBC action hero, has a pronounced aversion to Republicans/conservatives/right wingers coming on his cable show.Why? Depends on when Schultz explains the reason.Here he was on his radio show this past Monday (audio) --You do not see Republican senators on "The Ed Show" on MSNBC. I don't want 'em! I don't want 'em and I'm getting sick of righties on my show anyway. I'm getting sick, I mean, we might have 2011, there might not be any freakin' righties. I'm sick of 'em!

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – US economic recovery hopes got a rude shock Friday as official data showed job losses accelerated to 263,000 in September and the unemployment rate rose to 9.8 percent. The Labor Department report, one of the best indicators of economic momentum, showed the critical labor market reversed course after months of improvement. The unemployment rate was up one-tenth of a point from August and in line with most forecasts, but would have been higher if not for 571,000 people dropping out of the labor force. But payroll losses were far worse than expectations for a loss of 175,000...

    Dull Hillary stumbles and the memory of Bill lingers on By Francis Harris in Washington (Filed: 24/05/2006) Hillary Clinton may be the Democratic front-runner for the presidency but she seems to have a lot to learn about campaigning for the White House. In a weighty speech to journalists at the National Press Club in Washington yesterday, the senator squandered an opportunity to shine before a critically important audience - the journalists who will present her to the public if, as expected, she declares her candidacy for the 2008 nomination. It began well enough. Resplendent in a lemon yellow two-piece and...

    There he goes again. California Attorney General Bill Lockyer, lunching Tuesday with reporters in Washington, D.C., and effectively - although not officially - announcing his candidacy for governor, exercised his penchant for scorched- earth rhetoric. The publicity for his explosive words blunted the official candidacy announced the same day by fellow Democrat, Treasurer Phil Angelides. Mr. Lockyer was quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle, about Gov. Schwarzenegger's governance style: "I don't like to dwell on this." [Sure he doesn't.] "But it has a little bit of the sort of the odor of Austrian politics. There's a sort of arrogance of...

    SACRAMENTO – When times get tough, California's action-hero governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, resorts to a surefire way to pump up his power. He ridicules the state Legislature as a dysfunctional band of children who fritter away their time and then, cowed by special interests, rush through "strange bills" in the dead of night. But as this year's legislative session crashed to a close last month, it was Schwarzenegger opening his doors wide to special interests and rolling out what was widely considered a last-minute, half-baked legislative agenda with almost no public scrutiny. As a result, far from Schwarzenegger's promise of "action,...

    SACRAMENTO - Five months into his term, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is struggling to fulfill his campaign pledge to bring a new era of openness to California's Capitol. Instead of eradicating closed-door deals, Schwarzenegger has brought the smoke-filled room back into style by pitching a deal-making smoking tent outside his office. That is where he helped broker his workers' compensation reform plan, which, contrary to his campaign promise, was rushed through a legislative committee last week in the dead of night with no public comment. Tuesday, the Schwarzenegger administration abruptly pulled the first plank of its political-reform package from a key...

    <p>Californians went to the trouble of recalling their governor in order to put in power a leader willing to make tough choices and stand up to a free-spending Legislature. Yes, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has maneuvered the Legislature into undoing SB 60, the blockheaded law that gave illegal immigrants the right to California driver's licenses, and overturned the illegal tripling of the vehicle license fee.</p>

    Democrats' walkout stumbles By Guillermo X. Garcia Express-News Austin Bureau Web Posted : 09/03/2003 12:00 AM ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A 37-day walkout by Texas Senate Democrats to stop redistricting started to unravel Tuesday when Sen. John Whitmire of Houston returned to Texas, saying he'd continue the fight there, not in New Mexico. Whitmire, the dean of the Senate, spent the weekend in Houston, rejoined his colleagues here for several hours Tuesday, then flew back in the evening. In an interview before conferring with the 10 other senators who fled the state July 28 to stop a GOP effort to redraw...
