Politics As Usual


newissuealert1.jpgart2114obamahillgi.jpgClinton, Obama clash in Democratic debate
Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama engaged in a bitter crossfire on Monday as their U.S. presidential campaign took an ugly personal turn on the Martin Luther King holiday. Obama’s complaints about former President Bill Clinton’s attacks on him on behalf of his wife’s campaign boiled over at a rancorous debate. Hillary Clinton flayed Obama for his praise of the late President Ronald Reagan, a Republican icon reviled by many Democrats. (Continue Reading…)

CNN readers respond angrily to ‘race or gender’ story
Within minutes of posting a story on CNN’s homepage called “Gender or race: Black women voters face tough choices in South Carolina,” readers reacted quickly and angrily. Many took umbrage at the story’s suggestion that black women voters face “a unique, and most unexpected dilemma” about voting their race or their gender. CNN received dozens of e-mails shortly after posting the story, which focuses largely on conversations about Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama that a CNN reporter observed at a hair salon in South Carolina whose customers are predominantly African-American.

Wal-Mart’s First Lady
Twice in three days last week, Hillary Rodham Clinton basked in the adulation of cheering union members. Her record of supporting collective bargaining, however, is considerably worse than wobbly. (Continue Reading…)

    CNN has a pattern of favoring the Clinton machine. This is evident and sad since we Americans deserve better im-partial covergage. You give her and her husband, slick Billy more coverage and “positive” coverage.
    Is it no wonder that people are dismayed with the politics in America. Say what you want but the people of America deserve better coverage that does not enable the Clinton machine to play the race card whether directly or indirectly from “friends of Bill & HIllary.
    For me it’s a sad day in America when the press whom we counted on to be objective fail.

    I see many things wrong with the US at this moment. Bush has ruined our economy, has compromised our civil rights, has substantially damaged the US’ reputation, among many other unpleasant things. I strongly believe that Hillary can put us back on track; she’s very intelligent and she’s very strong, mentally and emotionally; I love the way she handles the issues that are thrown at her; I love her position on all issues; I truly think she would make the best president at the moment, out of all three candidates. I like Obama and Edwards too. I think Obama would make a great president 4 or 8 years from now. Personally, I just don’t think he is ready yet to fulfill that role… and we must keep in mind that the next president (if Democrat) will have a tough task – the task of fixing all damage left by president Bush. Whoever becomes the democratic leader, I know I’ll support him or her 100% when the presidential election takes place; Any of the three democratic candidates would make a better president than any of the republican candidates – such I’m absolutely sure of!

    I agree with Tom Marshall…all the news stations have been giving Clinton this praised publicity. I wish people were smart enought to see and read through the BS of the press. They have such alterior motives in the ways they report the news and its a shame that we never get the right report or accurate accounts.

    Additionally, I am tired of everyone saying Obama will be good in 4 to 8 years. HE’S GOOD NOW!!!!! If not now, when? If not him, then who? And that’s the bottom line!!! Why would I want a president (i.e. Clinton) who breaks down in tears after the Iowa caucuses because she lost. What a female trait!!! So that’s what your going to do when things don’t go your way Clinton. I want a candidate who is strong, who can take blows, who can bounce back and persevere through all the hardships. Clinton, please save those tears for someone who cares. What a gullible society we have…not I said the fly!!!!
