It ain’t Hillary
“Good evening. I’m Chris Matthews. Hillary [Clinton] is out front on the Democratic side, but with half the country not liking her and her getting only a quarter of the independent voters, her winning the nomination could simply set up the Democrats for a loss in ‘08 that should be a win.”
Beats a coup
As Mr. Wicker noted, he had been a page in 1967.
“It was a life-changing experience for a young boy from Pontotoc, Mississippi,” he said.
“Sometimes, we are delighted with that orderly transfer of power,” the Republican said. “Sometimes, as occurred last November and this past January, I was not particularly overly delighted. But it is profound, nonetheless, that we make those changes in government at the ballot box and not at the point of a gun.”
The door is open
“Tancredo’s Tall Tale” is the headline of an intriguing item in the latest issue of the Weekly Standard, which recalls a story that Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado has been repeating for several years, most recently during the Republican presidential debate on CNN last week.
“Some time ago,” said Mr. Tancredo, “2003 I think it was, I got a call from Karl Rove who told me that because of my criticism of the president, I should never darken the doorstep of the White House.”
In fact, Mr. Tancredo had told The Washington Times during an interview in April 2002 that because of the “open-door” policy President Bush favored on immigration, terrorists could be “waltzing across the border” thirsty for American “blood,” which the congressman warned would be on the administration’s “hands.”
Ever since, continues the magazine, Mr. Tancredo has had people believing that in light of his public disagreement with Mr. Bush, he has been banned from the White House for the life of the presidency. But that’s not the case.View Entire Story
