Obama Honors the Dishonorable Ted Kennedy

That Obama can express such outrage about various perceived racial injustices and present himself as a supporter of women’s rights while traveling today to honor a man who failed to make every effort to save a woman who died because of his actions – and whose behavior may have in fact constituted second degree murder – is hypocrisy of the highest order.

@Frank Apisa,
I'm all right with being labeled liberal in spite of the extreme elements. After all most of the conservatives use their label in spite of the tea baggers don't they?

With military spending representing 60% the budget, explain how something less than 20% is what breaking the budget.

REAGAN IS INJURED IN FALL OFF HORSE
By ROBERT PEAR, Special to The New York Times
Published: July 5, 1989


WASHINGTON, July 4— Former President Ronald Reagan suffered minor injuries when he was thrown from a horse in Mexico today, the Secret Service reported.

Stephen E. Garmon, deputy director of the Secret Service, said Mr. Reagan had been taken by a military helicopter to a hospital at Fort Huachuca, an Army base near Tucson, Ariz., where he stayed for about five hours.

The accident occurred in the Mexican state of Sonora, just across the Arizona border, where Mr. Reagan was on a hunting trip at a private ranch.

''The extent of injuries was minimal, but to be on the safe side he was taken to Fort Huachuca for observation,'' Mr. Garmon said. Horse 'Bucked Wildly'

In Los Angeles, Mark D. Weinberg, a spokesman for the 78-year-old former President, said, ''The horse Reagan was riding bucked wildly several times on a rocky downhill slope and eventually stumbled,'' throwing Mr. Reagan.

''X-rays taken today revealed no serious injuries, and physicians who examined President Reagan report he is in excellent condition,'' Mr. Weinberg said. The spokesman said Mr. Reagan had suffered ''minor abrasions,'' mainly on his wrists. Nancy Reagan accompanied her husband to the hospital.

Mr. Reagan ''is comfortable and in good spirits and joked that the incident was 'my own private rodeo,' '' Mr. Weinberg said, adding that Mr. Reagan is ''an excellent rider'' and ''held on quite a while.''

Mr. Weinberg said that the ranch was owned by William A. Wilson, a longtime friend of the Reagans' who served as United States Ambassador to the Vatican in the Reagan Administration.

Mr. Reagan returned to the ranch tonight, leaving the Fort Huachuca hospital by military helicopter at 6:10 P.M. Eastern daylight time, a spokesman at the base said. A Secret Service spokesman, Richard Adams, said the accident occurred at 1:45 P.M. Eastern daylight time. A Frequent Rider

The former President and Mrs. Reagan plan to celebrate her birthday at the ranch on Thursday before returning to his Los Angeles home, Mr. Weinberg said.

The Associated Press quoted The Sierra Vista Herald as saying Mr. Reagan had stopped in that Arizona town on his way to the ranch for an unofficial buffalo hunt.

As President, Mr. Reagan often went horseback riding. In Nebraska in 1987, he said: ''I've never understood what's so bad about being a cowboy. I'm proud of my spurs. I've often said there's nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse.''

In Kennebunkport, Me., President Bush was informed of Mr. Reagan's accident by the Secret Service, just before Mr. Bush went boating, a White House spokesman said.

''The President was relieved to hear that President Reagan is O.K.,'' said the spokesman, Bill Harlow. ''He'll be calling him at some point.''

George Bush 'chokes on pretzel'

President George Bush choked on a pretzel and fainted onto the floor.

He cut his face and bruised his lip in the fall, but the White House doctor, Richard Tubb, said he was fine now.

The accident happened on Sunday when the American leader was munching on a pretzel - a popular savoury snack in the US.

'Watching American football'

He apparently did not swallow his food properly, which slowed down his heart rate and caused him to faint and fall off his sofa.

George Bush was on his own watching American football at the time.

He passed out for a few seconds, then woke up and called for White House medical staff.

Cheney accidentally shoots fellow hunter
Texas lawyer struck in face, chest with birdshot

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and wounded a campaign contributor during a weekend quail hunt on a friend's South Texas ranch, local authorities and the vice president's office said Sunday.

The wounded man, 78-year-old Harry Whittington, was in intensive care at a Corpus Christi hospital after being hit by several pellets of birdshot Saturday afternoon, hospital spokesman Peter Banko told CNN.

"He's doing well and in stable condition today," Banko said.

Whittington, an Austin attorney who gave $1,000 to President Bush's 2000 campaign and $2,000 to his 2004 re-election bid, was among a handful of people accompanying the vice president when the accident occurred Saturday afternoon.

Cheney, 65, visited him Sunday afternoon at the hospital, "and was pleased to see he is doing fine and in good spirits," Cheney spokeswoman Lee Anne McBride said. (Watch when Cheney's office decided to release information -- 1:23)

The shooting occurred about 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Kenedy County Sheriff Ray Salinas said. He said his deputies are investigating the shooting but consider it an accident.

Cheney, an avid hunter, was shooting at a covey of quail on the Armstrong Ranch near Kingsville, about 30 miles southwest of Corpus Christi. The ranch's owner, Katharine Armstrong, said Whittington was about 30 yards from Cheney when the vice president fired.

Armstrong, who was with the group when the accident occurred, said Whittington was "peppered" with birdshot. Pellets hit him in the face and chest, but he never lost consciousness, she said. (Watch how a witness described the accident -- 6:34)

She said Whittington had just shot a quail and had dropped back to retrieve it. He was hit upon rejoining the group and "apparently came up unannounced" as Cheney prepared to fire.

Whittington, a prominent Texas Republican, has been active in state politics since the 1960s and served as chairman of the state Board of Corrections from 1979 to 1985.

In 1999, then-Gov. George W. Bush named him to the state Funeral Services Commission, which had been stung by allegations of widespread corruption and mismanagement in the industry.

Armstrong told CNN that Whittington was a guest of hers, not someone Cheney invited, and she did not know whether the two men had met before.

The vice president, his Secret Service detail and other companions rushed to the wounded man's aid, Armstrong said.

Similar accidents occur "not frequently, but often" among hunters in the area, Salinas said. He said an ambulance that was posted at the ranch while Cheney was visiting took Whittington to the hospital.

Armstrong said Cheney was firing a 28-gauge shotgun, a small-bore weapon commonly used for hunting birds. Cheney has come to her ranch to hunt quail once a year for at least 15 years, and she called him "a very conscientious hunter."

"I would shoot with Dick Cheney everywhere, anywhere, and not think twice about it," she said. But she said, "The nature of quail shooting ensures that this will happen. It goes with the turf."


Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney disputes Scott Walker's marijuana story

1 hour ago • By Matthew DeFour | Wisconsin State Journal


Dane County's Democratic sheriff is disputing a story Gov. Scott Walker told last week in response to a question about marijuana legalization — though the Republican governor is standing behind his comments.

At a luncheon in Phoenix emceed by conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Walker said he opposed legalizing marijuana, citing a conversation he said he had with the sheriff of liberal Dane County. "I mean, it’s left of Pravda," Walker said of the political views of county residents, which he compared to the Communist Russian newspaper.

"Even there, the Democrat sheriff said to me last year when this issue came up, 'Whatever you do, please do not sign the legalization of marijuana,'" Walker said. "This was a guy who spent his whole career in law enforcement. He was liberal on a whole lot of other issues. But he said it’s a gateway drug."

Sheriff Dave Mahoney said Monday he had no recollection of such a conversation.

In fact, Mahoney said, he has never had a one-on-one, sit-down conversation on any topic with Walker since he became governor. Any interactions they've had at public events and meetings have been cordial small talk, he said.

"I'd be very interested in knowing when I had a conversation with the governor himself about marijuana," Mahoney said. "I have no idea when that could have possibly occurred."

Wisconsin Republicans abandoning Scott Walker
http://wcmcoop.com/2015/03/29/wisconsin-republicans-abandoning-scott-walker/

On March 25, 2015, former editor of the Waukesha Freeman and conservative Pete Kennedy published an opinion piece in the paper urging Wisconsin conservatives to not only reject Scott Walker, but to hold him accountable for the damage he has done to the state.

cantstandusKennedy is not the only Wisconsin Republican abandoning Scott Walker. Recently extremists in the party, including Rep. Robin Vos (R-63) and Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-12), began questioning Walker’s latest budget, which drastically cuts money for public education, eliminates essential programs for the disabled and elderly that allow them to stay in their homes, increases bonding for transportation and roads, and slashes $300 million from the UW System.

Even Walker’s staunch defender Wisconsin Reporter is remaining silent about recent information that has emerged about Walker’s alleged $1.5 million pay-to-play scheme involving Menards’ president John Menard Jr.

Kennedy’s piece vividly describes how Walker has indeed betrayed even his loyal extremists. Kennedy appears to understand that Walker has been lying to them (and the rest of the state) all along. “Given recent events, I’m not convinced he ever really loved you,” he opines, “but if believing so makes you feel better, then by all means do so.”

That link is nothing but biased with a clear agenda to smear Walker. They do not care if it is the truth or not. Just like you.

@bobsal u1553115,
I doubt if Cruz got through that easy. The website is still a mess. It is not secure.

And they can't even send out the right tax information to the people that have it. Mediocrity is too good a word to describe the governments performance concerning this law.

It sucks just like his domestic policy, his foreign policy, and his Islamist ass kissing cabinet.

The cost of GOP’s Benghazi hysteria: Why the U.S. is really pulling out of Yemen
---

The reasons behind U.S. withdrawal

What explains the withdrawal is the veiled threat that Congress will hobble the State and Defense Departments with investigations as arbitrary, burdensome and costly as the Benghazi hearings every time someone sets fire to a U.S. base or captured U.S. personnel appear in garish jump suits kneeling on video in front of knife-wielding psychopaths.

So long as there is any remote possibility of political advantage to them, Congress will conduct sham investigations.

It is true that part of the job of Congress is to exercise oversight. But few believe the purpose of the Benghazi hearings is oversight as opposed to an opportunity to steal airtime to make insinuations about the Secretary of State — in other words, the cynical use of political power to discredit Hilary Clinton as a presidential candidate.

Republican sponsors of the more than a dozen Benghazi hearings by five Congressional committees argue their investigation is no sham — even if the hearings have consistently refuted every accusation that the Obama Administration ignored warnings, failed to defend the post, or in any other way misbehaved before, during or after the attack.
