Precious Memories

She became the first great recording star of gospel music in the late 1930s and also became known as the “original soul sister” of recorded music.

    Plouffe won’t rule out Clinton running for president in 2012
    By David

    Although Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said that she has no intention in running for president again, President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager wouldn’t rule it out Sunday.

    David Plouffe told NBC’s David Gregory that he doesn’t anticipate an Democratic challenger but deflected questions about a possible Clinton run.

    “Do you envision a primary challenge from another Democrat in 2012 against this president?” asked Gregory.

    “I can’t imagine that,” replied Plouffe.

    “Can you rule out based on actual information that Secretary of State Clinton would not pursue the presidency again and would not challenge President Obama?” Gregory wondered.

    “You saw this week they’re working so well together. Working on Middle East peace and it’s a wonderful partnership. I think that was a really inspired choice by the president and Secretary of State Clinton is doing a remarkable job,” said Plouffe.

  3. Chris Wallace: Obama’s ‘Heart Isn’t Really Into Winning The War On Terror’

    Discussing President Obama’s Tuesday Iraq speech on Fox News Sunday’s morning panel, “fair and balanced” moderator Chris Wallace cited Obama’s discussion of the economy in order to ask the panelists, “Is it unfair to say that this a president whose heart doesn’t seem to be into winning the war on terror”:

    WALLACE: In that speech, to say “my central mission is to restore the economy,” is it unfair to say that this a president whose heart doesn’t seem to be into winning the war on terror, no matter what it costs?

    STEPHEN HAYES, WEEKLY STANDARD: No, I don’t think that’s at all unfair, and the reason you can say that is if you look back at his inaugural address, the key paragraph is the paragraph in which he describes what he called “the crisis now well understood.” In that paragraph he mentions, in one sentence, the war on terror, and then he goes on and gives a litany of economic, domestic policy problems. He talks about schools, he talks about health care, he talks about job losses, he talks about homes. This is how the president thinks, so to a certain extent there’s no question that this is driven by polls, by the potential that people are perceiving him as focused on Afghanistan or he’s talking too much about other things, not the economy. He wanted to talk about the economy. But more fundamentally, this is how the president thinks, for better or worse.

      Chris Wallace wouldn’t know what “HEART” looked like if one came and pumbed blood all over his cartoonish face.

      The President is on the JOB and working it. Chris however, is sitting in a Fox studio playing Sunday quarterback and spewing talking-points for the GOP.

  4. John McCain: Republicans Need A New Contract With America

    Today on “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called for Senate Republicans to put out a detailed agenda of the party’s policy ideas, but when pressed about his position on changing Social Security, he said he “can’t endorse a specific proposal.”

    When host Chris Wallace asked McCain whether he is “comfortable with some of the Tea Party ideas that would dramatically shrink the size and the scope of the federal government,” the senator said he favored repealing and replacing “Obamacare,” introducing a balanced budget amendment, and eliminating pork barrel spending — ideas that could constitute some sort of contract with America.

    Duh! Where’ve you been, John McCain? Here is the contract….

    Making Social Security less generous isn’t the answer
    By Ezra Klein
    Washington Post staff writer
    Sunday, September 5, 2010

    There are a lot of things Congress doesn’t know right now. What to do about jobs, for instance. Who’ll be running the House come January. How to balance the budget. But there is one thing that both parties increasingly seem to agree on: You should work longer.

    Raising the Social Security retirement age has become as close to a consensus position as exists in American politics. House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) supports it. House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) has said that “we could and should consider a higher retirement age.” And for a while, I agreed with them, too. It seemed obvious: People live longer today, and so they should work later into life. But as I’ve looked at the issue, I’ve decided that I was wrong. So let me be the skunk at the party. We should leave the retirement age alone. In fact, we should leave Social Security alone — unless we’re making it more, rather than less, generous.
