A House ethics panel dismissed a complaint against Arkansas congressman and Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Tom Cotton that accused him of illegally soliciting donations during a radio interview at the U.S. Capitol, according to a letter released by his campaign Wednesday.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney didn't hold back Thursday when asked about the president's handling of the situation in Syria: It's a total bungle, he said.
Hugh Hewitt is a successful radio talk show host, a prolific columnist and author, a lawyer and law professor. In his new book, "The Brief Against Obama: The Rise, Fall & Epic Fail of the Hope & Change Presidency," Mr. Hewitt invokes the trial lawyer's mantra that if you make promises in opening argument, then the jury will pay attention to whether you deliver what was promised.
Conservative talk radio is ganging up on presidential candidate John McCain, attacking him for joining Democrats to push liberal legislation and opposing bedrock Republican positions from tax cuts to immigration.
Hewitt later said he was mistaken in saying Cotton was at the Capitol throughout the interview.
Hewitt said during the interview that Cotton was speaking from inside the Capitol, Cotton's office said after the interview that he had not been in the building when he mentioned the website.
