    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday got in a tense back-and-forth with an audience member during an Iowa campaign stop after the man claimed the former vice president sent his son Hunter Biden to work for an energy company in Ukraine. "You're a damn liar, man. That's not true," Biden shot back at the man, who said the claims, which have been circulated by some on the right, were backed up by reporting on television. Biden then went on to challenge the man to a push-up contest. "You want to check my shape man, let's do pushups together here,...
  • Tom Perez Bombs Speech, California Dem Chair Tells Protesters ‘Shut the [bleep] Up’

    <p>The rift within the Democratic Party was on full display at the California Democratic Party Convention on May 19 in Sacramento, California. Progressives joined members of National Nurses United, protesting the Democratic Party establishment’s refusal to support single payer healthcare system. Rather than follow through with Democratic rhetoric that healthcare is a human right, establishment Democrats have responded to voters by scolding and attacking them.</p>

    Every year, my family and I face the same dilemma.  The last time either of us participated in Halloween has to be at least 10 years ago.  We have made a decision to abstain from Halloween celebrations, including all the TV specials, candy, and trick-or-treat associated with it.  I’m not against dressing up in costumes, or candy, or fun.  I and my wife simply oppose the values that go along with Halloween—the celebration of darkness, horror, fear, and mayhem. I wrote a rather long piece about Halloween and why we believe what we believe, and posted it on my blog...
  • Obama the Angry, part II

    It's finger-shakin' timeWe normally don’t comment on blogs in the neighborhood, but this one was too sweet to ignore. Some fella named Prevatt over at some blog called took exception to our characterization of the angry fellow in the White House as being, well, angry. Our post was titled “Obama the Angry,” for reasons pretty much apparent to anyone with ears to hear. But Mr. Prevatt said that we went on, “to promote the stereotype of the ‘angry black man’ to describe the president’s” State of the Union speech. Stereotype of an angry black man? . . .
  • Testy Obama fires back at Democrats over tax deal

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A testy President Barack Obama on Tuesday expressed frustration at his own Democrats for attacking him over his tax-cut deal with Republicans, who he called uncompromising "hostage takers." Obama found himself in an unusual position a day after sealing a major tax-cut agreement -- praised by Republican opponents and denounced by liberal Democrats who felt he violated a pledge that helped get him elected in 2008. Liberals accused him of caving to Republican demands by agreeing to extend all the Bush-era tax cuts, even those for wealthier Americans, instead of their preference for limiting the tax cuts...

    Republican presidential candidate John McCain chided his Democratic rival on Wednesday for getting "a little testy" as Barack Obama sharpened his tone amid a tightening White House race that gets nastier by the day. "I honor his service. I don't honor his policies. I don't honor his politics," Obama said, taking on his GOP opponent with renewed vigor while some Democrats fret that their candidate has not been aggressive enough. Both candidates also unveiled fresh attack advertisements ahead of their back-to-back national conventions. Trying anew to tie McCain to the unpopular President Bush, Obama's TV commercial asks: "Can we really...

    Fiedor Report On the News #310 ^ | 7-31-04 | Doug Fiedor
    The meeting in Beantown was listed as the Democratic party convention. However, the number of media and gunslingers far exceeded the amount of convention delegates attending. The gunslingers could be pacified with a doughnut or two a day. Not so with the scribbling set. Reporters tend to get a little testy if they are not provided comfort, free food, booze, and bathrooms -- usually in that order. But, the DNC didn't deliver. First, most media people had to go through security lines. Then, to save a few bucks, the DNC skimped on toilets for the media. On top of that,...

    <p>A sultry summer heat wave has enveloped the California Capitol, the sort of weather that makes folks a little testy. And that's inside the building.</p> <p>A political showdown on the state's worst-ever budget crisis is drawing near. As early as next week, the state Senate may take up a compromise, no-new-taxes budget that, if enacted, would be a tactical victory for the Legislature's minority Republicans and a big setback for its majority Democrats.</p>
