    Tuesday | Nashua Telegraph

    Bitterly admitting defeat, House Republicans on Tuesday abandoned their attempts to use the Homeland Security Department's spending bill to force concessions from President Barack Obama on immigration, and sent him legislation to fund the agency through the end of the budget year with no strings attached. "Sanity is prevailing," said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., a former chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, before the House voted 257-167 in favor of the $40 billion spending bill, which Obama was expected to sign promptly.

    Tuesday | NewsBusters.org

    All three broadcast networks reported on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech before Congress with segments in their Tuesday night broadcasts, but it was CBS and NBC that led the way in the bias department by hitting Netanyahu for making a "controversial speech" and touted President Obama for "firing back," "point by point for 11 minutes." CBS Evening News substitute anchor Charlie Rose began the show's coverage by telling viewers that "Netanyahu did an end run around President Obama today" in his speech with the caption "controversial speech" appearing beside him.

  9. Editorial: Pearce still throwing sand in gears of governmentRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday | Carlsbad Current-Argus

    Remember that guy who ran for re-election in November expressing his sincere willingness to compromise and work across the aisle? Well, U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce, R-Hobbs, proved once again Friday he remains one of a group of about 50 hardliners in the U.S. House of Representatives who insist on throwing sand into the gears of government, even with his own party now in control of both houses of Congress. Pearce was one of 52 House Republicans who thwarted a plan by Speaker John Boehner to extend funding for the Department of Homeland Security for three weeks.

    Jan 24, 2013 | American Reporter

    Some conservatives in Congress are outraged over the idea that the Obama Administration could thwart their plans to threaten blow up the economy if the President doesn't approve steep cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. But there are a few conservatives who remember who won last November's presidential election and are willing to take President Obama at his word when he said that he's not going to negotiate with the Republican leadership in Congress who want to link a vote on the federal debt ceiling to making those cuts in social welfare spending.

    Dec 23, 2012 | American Reporter

    In the overall mechanics of transformative government, attitude is so important! Not just a simplistic "can do" confidence but the simple belief that government might - holy cow! - actually solve or take the lead in solving or confronting a major problem. Many GOP leaders or presidential candidates boasted during the primary campaign about how, on being elected, they would eliminate government departments left and right.

  16. Campaign 2012TOO Close to CallRead the original story

    Nov 6, 2012 | American Reporter

    It would be too facile to say that Hurricane Sandy was Mother Nature's revenge for the silence of Mitt Romney and President Obama on climate change during the presidential debates. Had one of those gentlemen taken our suggestion to address the issue, that might well have been a game-changing factor on Nov. 6. But will this massive, deadly storm that's taken at least t50 lives and has left millions without lights even tonight make a difference in the presidential election? It's too late in the game for both candidates, but if President Obama wins a second term, he would do well to make dealing with climate change as big a priority as health care reform was in his first term.

    In Texas and Oklahoma, ranchers and farmers have joined with activists and Occupy Wall Street alums to try to stop the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline - designed to bring toxic and dangerous tar sands oil from Canada to U.S. refineries. On the stage at Hofstra University on Tuesday night, President Obama and Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney spun fairy tales about "clean" coal and energy independence through more domestic drilling for oil and natural gas.

    Sep 3, 2012 | American Reporter

    Mitt Romney's speech to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa was not among the great ones that conventions of both parties have heard in recent decades, but it did accomplish two important things: It enlarged the mental portrait most of us have of this quintessentially corporate man, and it made it seem possible that he could pull this country out of its economic morass. As it stands tonight, here amid the quiet lakes and hills of northern Georgia, I have finally seen with clarity that Mitt Romney's chances of being our next President are excellent.
