The candidate hasn’t made it official yet, but signs are emerging. Read the tea leaves, people. It is time to declare that a Clinton is running for the White House. Again.
This time, for First Gentleman.
Bill Clinton has emerged in recent days as the follower of his wife’s directions; her human shield against political spear throwers; her tireless advocate as she positions herself for a still-undeclared run for president.
In classic stand-by-your-woman fashion, he scorches those who bash her over Benghazi or paint her as an indifferent millionaire. Yet he demurs on his influence, as would any good, sensible spouse who knows the danger of stealing glory from one’s Better Half.
All of us who actually have lost loved ones in Iraq or Afghanistan, and whose stock market holdings were decimated in the Bush/Republican crash, thank our stars for President Obama. Our only regret is that the President won't be around in 2 years to pick better judges than the ones who trample on women's rights and want to extinguish the labor movement.
Children should get vaccinated against preventable and potentially deadly diseases. Period.
That's what a project that screened more than 20,000 scientific titles and 67 papers on vaccine safety concludes this week. The review appears in the latest edition of the medical journal Pediatrics.
The evidence strongly suggests that side effects from vaccines are incredibly rare, the study authors said. They found no ties between vaccines and the rising number of children with autism, as a small but vocal group of anti-vaccine activists, including actors Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carey, have said.
The Repukes are like a cult impervious to good government and the facts.
The President doesn't need to apologize for trying to put Americans back to work while the Republicans are doing nothing constructive.
Boehner's lawsuit is no more than cheap political theater, a stunt, not aimed at accomplishing anything useful to put hardworking middle class Americans back to work.
Attorney Mark Mayfield was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound Friday at his Ridgeland home.
Mayfield, vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party, and is one of the three men charged with conspiring with Clayton Kelly to photograph U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran's bedridden wife in her nursing home and create a political video against Cochran.
SEN. MITCH McCONNELL, R-KY (11/13/2007): Of course the war has been costly, but we have been protected from attack here at home.
Stewart: Um, putting aside the questionable contention that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have kept us safe here at home, you do know terrorism isn't the only thing Americans would like to be protected from.
You know what, I'm worried. I'm really worried about the Republicans. Their inability to wean themselves off of military intervention. They have a culture of defendency, if you will. And I believe it's turned them all into warfare queens. (audience laughter) And I think we need to cut them off for their own good. (audience cheering and applause).
Terry Bradshaw is an expert on Benghazi like Bush and Cheney are experts on Middle East warfare.
How the Rethugs do politics:
"Illegal Donation Benefits PA Republican Campaign"
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Commission is being asked to investigate a $987,844 donation from casino magnate Sheldon Adelson on December 31. Adelson is CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corp., which owns Bethlehem Sands Casino Resort in the Lehigh Valley. Finance records of the Republican Governors Association indicate the GOP committee donated $1.6 M to Gov. Tom Corbett's re-election campaign on April 30. A spokesman for LVS says the RGA mistakenly allocated Adelson's contribution to Corbett's PAC. The RGA claims to be working to correct this mistake. PA law prohibits donations from casino interests to political campaigns.
Darrell Issa offered a much lamer excuse when Bush administration hacks lost incriminating emails in the Scooter Libby debacle.
