Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can dish it out, but he can’t take it. Harry Reid was Senate Democratic Whip when George W. Bush became president. Under him, the Senate Democrats mounted an unprecedented filibuster campaign against Bush’s judicial nominees. According to The Heritage Foundation’s Todd Gaziano, the average number of days a Court of Appeals nominee waited for final Senate action grew from | Read More »
Quiet, but deadly. The decision to keep U.S. personnel in Benghazi with substandard security was made at the highest levels of the State Department by officials who have so far escaped blame over the Sept. 11 attack, according to a review of recent congressional testimony and internal State Department memos by Fox News. Nine months before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three | Read More »
Background: in what may end up being the most epic Joe Biden Opens His Mouth EVER the Vice President told a Facebook ‘town hall’ hosted by Parenting Magazine that he had advised his wife that her proper firearms strategy in case of home invasion should be to… get a shotgun, brandish it, and empty the barrels into the air… Hold up! Wait, wait, I know | Read More »
Last week the Vice President and the Obama administration decided to go back in time to politicize the Virginia Tech massacre. Their goal was not to provide an honest portrayal of the events nor to find real solutions to the problem based upon careful analysis. They simply hoped to advance their gun confiscation agenda by standing on the graves of dead college students. Ironically, an | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss Joe Biden’s courting of the NRA, how Chuck Hagel’s past comments on Israel are causing him problems on both sides of the aisle during his confirmation, and why potential 2016 candidates are being so brash.
There are just going to be some days when reality defeats me. How can I top the sheer inanity of… this? Seeking to reassure victims of Hurricane Sandy following a tour of the damaged boardwalk in Seaside Heights, N.J., Vice President Joe Biden told residents Sunday that he spent a lot of time on the New Jersey shore while growing up and that they’ve got | Read More »
Vice President Joe Biden took to the debate stage Thursday night in Danville, Ky., to square off against the man who may one day replace him as second in command. That man was Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.

Last night during the Vice Presidential debate, we were given quite the surprise when a question concerning a social issue came into play towards the end. Martha Raddatz, the clearly partisan moderator, asked the candidates about their common religious faith, Catholicism, and how it affected their view on abortion. Republican candidate Paul Ryan eloquently summed up that his Catholic faith isn’t the only factor as | Read More »
Was Joe Biden on drugs or did he use Al Gore for his debate prep? That’s the question anyone viewing the debate on TV should be asking. Biden’s appalling petulant behavior, in conjunction with the moderator’s refusal to moderate the debate instead of debate the debate, allowed Biden to get out of control and make a clown of himself. That is all anyone will remember. | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss last night’s vice presidential debate, Joe Biden’s two major gaffes and corporate earnings.
Chris Matthews, in his epic post-debate meltdown after the Romney-Obama debate, had the most telling line: “this was not an MSNBC debate.” Matthews and other liberals were particularly upset that Mitt Romney had managed to actually speak uninterrupted, occasionally running over his time and requesting opportunities to respond to things Obama said (although the final tally showed Obama spoke for 4 more minutes than Romney, | Read More »
I really do personally like Joe Biden, but he came across as a braying Biblical donkey tonight on stage in Kentucky. It was made worse by a moderator who lost repeated control of the debate. Up front, I have to say I’m hung up on one big thing. Joe Biden said the intelligence community got it wrong in Libya, but he says we can trust | Read More »
