"While I am required to accept the findings of the Ethics Committee, I am compelled to state again the unfairness of its continuation without affording me the opportunity to obtain legal counsel as guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.I know that the vast majority of this is Rangel intentionally lying and trying to make it seem that the House Committee is out to get him, but I honestly wonder if he believe the lies that he is spewing. Either way, he's guilty, both in the eyes of the public and now officially.
This unfair decision is the inevitable result of the Committee's insistence on moving forward despite the absence of any legal representation on my behalf. The Committee elected to reject my appeal for additional time to secure new counsel and thus acted in violation of the basic constitutional right to counsel."
"What about the conscientious student who keeps up with class, studies until 2 a.m. and pulls an A on a math test? Should a peer who skipped class and flubbed the test twice or three times get an equal grade? With the new policy, the ultimate grade on a student transcript could be the same, even though the two students took very different paths."But "expert" Rick Wormeli defends the decision to give students NMs, or "no mark," when they do not complete their work or do extremely poorly instead of an F. According to Wormeli, and I can hardly believe this, not giving students an F is harder on students:
"It's far more demanding on kids. Now it's, 'Oh crud, I have to learn it.' "I'll just say that Wormeli is full of it. A much more plausible reaction by a ten or eleven year old that does not want to do his work is: "I don't need to do it and I can't fail no matter what. I'm not doing it."

"Obviously we're trying to help kids who were not successful in the past, but really we're trying to help all kids."You know what? If you work hard and try, you earn your grades. We do not, and hopefully will never, live in a society that gives away free grades to unqualified citizens. We should not and cannot give slackers who have never tried in their life high-paying jobs, especially when it takes away the job of someone who has worked hard to get where they are. This is disgusting.
"Adopt a catch phrase for your opponent and repeat it relentlessly. For Angle, it was “extreme and dangerous.” The phrase appeared in commercials and was featured in virtually every speech given on Reid’s behalf. Exit polls showed many Reid voters picked the incumbent because they thought Angle was too extreme."Notice that Reid never mentions the word "truth." He simply states that you should repeat a "catch phrase over and over again. However, if you believe that Angle was the only person that Reid attacked in this article, you are mistaken. Reid also went after his son Rory:
"Avoid people who could hurt you even if it’s your son. Reid never appeared publicly with gubernatorial candidate Rory Reid, fearing the appearance of a political dynasty would turn off voters. Father and son held separate fundraising events and rallies, even if they had the same speakers, such as former President Bill Clinton, stumping for them."Once again, truth is no where to be seen. Reid simply states that "fearing the appearance of a political dynasty would turn off voters." He never said that it wasn't, just that it would turn voters away.

"The Reid organization’s Terminator-like single-mindedness, relentlessness and discipline turned preparation into the most satisfying victory of Reid’s career, a resurrection unthinkable most of the year by the Beltway cognoscenti."Unfortunately, come January, Reid will indeed "be back," despite the Republican wave that occurred two weeks ago. Not only that, but Reid clearly has not learned his lesson; he continues to be smug, amateurish, and elitist.
Rangel's office refused to comment on the PAC money. On top of the $393,000 in PAC funds, records show Rangel yanked $1.4 million from his campaign coffers in 2009 and 2010 to pay the firm Zuckerman Spaeder, his main legal-defense team, and $100,000 in 2009 to pay Davis' firm.Obviously we can't foresee what will happen in the ethics hearings but they've been a long time coming. Rangel has been flouting the ethics rules for a while, including allegedly using money from campaigning to pay for vacation property. Other charges include:
"We've just come off the largest ... loss for the Democratic Party in almost a century. And to be able to put Speaker Pelosi as minority leader is truly ... unacceptable for our party."Whether Shuler will be able to win is up for speculation. Pelosi, in power for years, is unlikely to relinquish her power to a challenger. Likewise, she is sure to get many votes from people who have worked with her over the years.

"It is important that we do everything we can at a particularly sensitive time in the region to try to redouble our efforts to achieve a two-state solution [to Israeli-Palestinian tensions], to help stabilize the situation in Sudan, and to work to ensure that the people of Lebanon can have accountability in the search for justice," said Hillary Clinton.
Clinton said that the issue at the top of the agenda was the need for Israeli-Palestinian peace talks toward a two-state solution.
The U.S. Secretary of State has echoed President Barack Obama's criticism of Israel's announcement this week that it is moving ahead with plans to build 1,300 new housing units in East Jerusalem.
“I have nothing against Speaker Pelosi; she has worked tirelessly to bring Democrats together. But given the fact that we suffered substantial losses in the election, I think a new face is needed for leadership of the Democratic Caucus. I am part of a group looking for an alternative."By "new face" Bishop did not mean a new, botoxed-filled face, but a new person in charge of the Democrats in Congress. Showing that Mr. Bishop might have been one of the few Democrats who actually learned from last week's defeat, he went on to say:
“I’ve had a number of my constituents and supporters ask me to help change the face of the party, and I am listening to my constituents.”Mr. Bishop joins the growing number of Democrats who want a new leader in the House.
"The message that voters throughout Nevada and all across the nation sent to Washington is that they want Democrats, Republicans and Independents to work together to find the common ground needed for real solutions and real progress...And I also welcome every opportunity to work with our Republican colleagues as we know the challenges that lie ahead of us know no political affiliation.""Work together" from the man who said this last December:
"Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, 'slow down, stop everything, let's start over.' If you think you've heard these same excuses before, you're right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said 'slow down, it's too early, things aren't bad enough.'"Apparently Reid does not mind that he is being an utter hypocrite, so long as he thinks it will net him support.

"The time for politics is now over. And now that Republicans have more members in both houses of Congress, they must take their responsibility to present bipartisan solutions more seriously. Simply saying 'no' will do nothing to create more jobs, support our middle-class and strengthen our economy.Obviously, Senator Reid has not learned the very lesson that he said that he did. Also, the American people did not vote for Republicans and Democrats to work together, Mr. Reid, they voted for things to get done. Good things that will put our economy on track.
"Democrats will continue to put forward innovative ideas, engage in entrepreneurial thinking and work to create the jobs for middle class prosperity. Republicans and Democrats must work together, with President Obama, to prepare for our nation for the 21st century while creating clean energy and infrastructure jobs. As we go forward, we welcome Republican ideas about job creation.Pelosi's writing is clearly trite and full of derision. Obviously, she never wanted to be in the position of having to listen to Republicans' (and the American people's) wishes. This fact becomes all the more stark after reading just a one of her opening paragraphs (emphasis added):
Though they elected a new majority in Congress, Americans did not vote for the special interests. They voted for jobs. Democrats remain committed to fighting for the people's interests, not the special interests.
While the election is over, the urgent needs of the American people remain. Over the past several days, I have spoken with my Democratic colleagues about where we go from here. I have heard from Americans across our country who are relying on us to continue our fight to create jobs, hopefully in a bipartisan way, and move our nation forward."
"Democrats passed Wall Street reform to ensure that never again will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause joblessness on Main Street. Our small business bill is now extending credit to small business owners so they can grow and hire. And we are committed to strengthening America's manufacturers — helping them with our "Make It in America" strategy, so our workers can make it in America. We made the largest investment in student aid in our nation's history, reducing the cost of loans to families and reducing the deficit. We achieved more progress over the last four years for our veterans and military families than any time since the passage of the original GI Bill in 1944. And we did all of this while restoring fiscal discipline to the Congress by making the pay-as-you-go rules the law of the land."Democrats this, Pelosi that. Obviously Ms. Pelosi hasn't learned to be the least humble, even after her party was crushed last week.
"That's odd, because just last Thursday, November 4, I read an article in Mr. Reddy's own Wall Street Journal titled 'Food Sellers Grit Teeth, Raise Prices: Packagers and Supermarkets Pressured to Pass Along Rising Costs, Even as Consumers Pinch Pennies.'"The HuffPo jumps on Palin, saying that she misread the article. The problem is that this is the exact headline from the WSJ article:
Food Sellers Grit Teeth, Raise PricesYou know, that's odd... That's exactly what Mrs. Palin said. It's almost like the Huffington Post is lying because they want to libel Mrs. Palin. How odd.
