President Obama has embarked on another global bowing tour.
Earlier this week, Republican lawmaker and former Army officer Chris Gibson formally launched his reelection campaign in New York’s 19th congressional district. It’s not off to a great start.
That same day, Gibson suggested that his Democratic opponent, Facebook spouse Sean Eldridge, was out of touch with the district, and “doesn’t fully understand what the needs of our communities are.”
What a disgrace. How dare Chris Gibson, a lifelong resident of the district, call Eldridge out of touch.
President Obama appears to have an interesting food fetish: eating endangered species.
Freshman Senator and 2016 frontrunner Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has written a memoir. The book documents her rise from humble beginnings, her tireless efforts to establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the internal struggles of someone who never really wanted to come to Washington, D.C., and get involved with politics, but who nevertheless has found it hard to quit the nation’s capital.
Here are 16 takeaways:
The Washington Free Beacon wants to know where you stand on the issues. Take our poll!
Senator Kay Hagan (D., N.C.) has released a new radio ad (see below) accusing her potential GOP challenger, Thom Tillis, of hypocrisy. The ad is ridiculously dishonest.
According to the ad, Tillis has attacked Hagan for calling the unpopular healthcare law, once known as Obamacare, “a great idea.” Hypocrisy!
The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is misguided, science has found.
Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false.
This is awkward. Alison Lundergan Grimes’s campaign sent out a fundraising email on Monday suggesting that given the “gaffes” of her GOP opponent, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, it’s no surprise that she is leading a recent poll (conducted by a Democratic firm). Unfortunately, her campaign gaffed:
Last week, Gawker reported that New York Times columnist/New York Times best-selling author/ABC News contributor/Nobel Prize-winning economist and textbook author/Leigh Bureau featured speaker Paul Krugman will make $225,000 for nine months of “work” at the City University of New York’s Luxembourg Income Study Center, a research department devoted to the study of income inequality.
Much mockery ensued. But Krugman’s fellow liberals rushed to his defense.
Today’s New York Times has a front-page hit piece on Jeb Bush, the reasonable, moderate, why-can’t-all-GOP-pols-be-more-like-him Republican who nevertheless must be destroyed lest he derail the historic ambitions of Hillary Clinton. It is ridiculous.
