Inside the Beltway: The media’s lousy aim
Question of the Day
“It’s a really, really good seller,” Jonathan Movroydis, spokesman for the Richard Nixon Foundation, tells the Los Angeles Times. Sales will likely jump on Tuesday, which begins a yearlong celebration of the centennial of Nixon’s birth on Jan. 9, 1913.
Mr. Carter, meanwhile, tells The Times he intended to provide a “more complete picture of the man still known largely for the Watergate scandal.”
He easily recouped his initial $2,000 investment, and has already begun a “bio-map” for Ronald Reagan. Mr. Carter says he likes Ike, too.
Nixon’s younger daughter, Julie, and her husband, David Eisenhower, grandson of President Eisenhower, have asked for one on the nation’s 34th president.
Some appear still hot to “fire” the House speaker.
So let’s see. Was it a good idea for certain Republicans to stage an “attempted coup” against John A. Boehner in his fight to retain the pivotal title last week? Exactly two-thirds of the 13,000-plus respondents in an online poll conducted by National Review said, why yes. It was a good idea.
THE JOE SHOW
“We urge the Obama administration to authorize the production of a recurring C-SPAN television program featuring the daily activities and interactions of the vice president with elected officials, foreign dignitaries and everyday American families. Such a program would educate the American public about the duties and responsibilities of their vice president, while providing a glimpse of the lighthearted side of politics even in the midst of contentious and divisive national debates.”
(A public petition filed at the “We the People” section of the White House website)
