Virginia Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, who cast his own ballot in the Virginia governor's race Tuesday morning, says he's still making calls to undecided voters and that reading tea leaves on any broader implications for the race is best left to the professional prognosticators.
Several Congress members have announced they are forfeiting their pay until the government reopens, but Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Thursday that she will not be joining them, Talking Points Memo first reported.
The following is a transcript of Wednesday's Virginia gubernatorial debate between Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II and Democrat Terry McAuliffe, which was moderated by Chuck Todd of NBC News. The transcript was provided by the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, the sponsor of the event.
Chris Matthews lamented the elements this morning after he blamed the setting sun for blocking President Obama's view of the teleprompters and ruining his "dramatic windup" during a speech in Berlin.
MSNBC's "Morning Joe" panel questioned conservatives' motives behind going after the Obama administration so fervently, following the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi that left four Americans dead.
Former Obama adviser and MSNBC contributor David Axelrod proposed Tuesday morning that perhaps the president was hesitant to call the Boston Marathon bombings a "terror attack" because of who may have been behind it.
David Freddoso's "Spin Masters: How the Media Ignored the Real News and Helped Re-elect Barack Obama" is essential reading for how the palace guard media stole the 2012 presidential election for Barack Obama. This wasn't an election, but a media selection.
Former Obama White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said he wasn't too impressed with former Sen. Chuck Hagel's performance at his confirmation hearing to become secretary of defense.
Fox News has signed former Ohio congressman Dennis J. Kucinich as a paid contributor on both the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.
"Hurricane Sandy is a disturbing sign of things to come. We must heed this warning and act quickly to solve the climate crisis. Dirty energy makes dirty weather," says Al Gore, commenting on Hurricane Sandy in his personal blog.
Talk about your irony. Democrats, who have declared that Republicans are engaging in a "war against women," will be led at their national convention this week by Bill Clinton, whose list of reported transgressions against women is, well, let's say, long.
Listening to liberal media reports on Hurricane Isaac, we already know two things: A major disaster is coming, and whatever happens is Mitt Romney's fault.
"I don't really care. If more than 10 people actually watched his show, I would actually care, but they don't, so, whatever."
Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's got the edge on President Obama, thanks to those fickle independents and voter motivation. The Gallup Daily Tracking poll of general-election preferences among registered voters from April 11 to 15 reports that Mr. Romney garners 47 percent of the vote, Mr. Obama 45 percent. The previous findings gave Mr. Obama a 49-45 lead.
He absolutely said nothing with that response as it relates to gun control.
You know, that's the kind of story we're tryin' to tell, Chuck, in this race.
