News & Views, 12/10/04

Sometimes an issue, or an aspect of an issue, is too complicated to explain in a “blurb” - and other times such an issue is better explained by someone with more knowledge and experience in it than I have. Thus, I created a new webpage for the Citizen Outreach webpage titled, “Issues & Answers” where I’ll occasionally post entire columns, opinions or reports authored by somebody else with expertise in the issue.

To launch the page, I’ve posted "Amnesty vs. Border Control" by Rep. Tom Tancredo, Colorado Republican this morning which consists of “12 Questions the White House Must Answer About Bush's Temporary Worker Plan.” In addition, I’ve also posted a recent column by Dr. Michael Clifford on the Tort Reform issue as it relates to all the pending class-action lawsuits hanging over the heads of Vioxx.

Catch either or both simply by clicking on the new “Issues & Answers” page at


“Honesty is a moral value. If this election had been decided on moral values, the Democrats would have won.”

- Howard Dean


“(T)he Bush side's most expensive and, in my view, most emotionally powerful television ad was a $14.5 million spot by the Progress for America Voter Fund (an IRS 527 organization). It features a digital snapshot that ran in the Cincinnati Enquirer of Bush hugging 15-year-old Ashley Faulkner at a campaign stop in Lebanon, Ohio.

“He had just heard that she lost her mother in the World Trade Center disaster. Without a word, he stopped and hugged her to his chest. The look on his face is one of genuine grief, empathy and comfort. The ad ends with Ashley Faulkner's voice saying: ‘He's the most powerful man in the world, and all he wants to do is make sure I'm safe, that I'm OK.’

“The power of the ad comes from something you seldom see in a presidential campaign, a moment of genuine human feeling without any prompting from handlers or spin doctors. The result in this case was a powerful narrative that made the president a part of the larger story in just the way Bush wanted to be seen.”

- Columnist Clarence Page


“Still furious about the election, liberals are lashing out at blacks. First it was Condoleezza Rice. But calling a Ph.D. who advised a sitting president during war ‘Aunt Jemima’ apparently hasn't satiated the Democrats' rage. Even the racist cartoons didn't help.

“So this week, they've turned with a vengeance to Clarence Thomas. Only the Democrats would try to distract from their racist attacks on one black Republican by leveling racist attacks against a different black Republican. If Democrats don't nip this in the bud, soon former Klanner and Democratic Sen. Bob Byrd will be their spokesman.

“…(L)ast Sunday Harry Reid, the Democratic leader in the Senate, had this to say about Justice Clarence Thomas: ‘I think that he has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court. I think that his opinions are poorly written.’ You'd think Thomas' opinions were written in ebonics. . . . If Democrats are all going to read from the same talking points, they might want to get someone other than David Duke to write them.”

- Columnist Ann Coulter


“All of John Kerry's one-time rivals in the Democratic presidential primary eventually lined up to support him as the nominee, but only one got paid for it -- Al Sharpton. The Democratic National Committee paid Sharpton $86,715 in travel and consulting fees to compensate for his campaigning for Kerry and other Democratic candidates"

“Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger struck a blow against the anti-Christmas agenda of the P.C. Scrooges. As California's first lady Maria Shriver flicked on the state Christmas tree's 5,000 bulbs, the governor terminated the preposterous practice of referring to the traditionally trimmed symbol as a ‘holiday tree.’"

- Left Coast Report, 12/8/04


“A song found offensive by a local parent has been pulled from the Onalaska Elementary School's (OES) upcoming Christmas program. Jennifer Scott, the mother of a third-grader at OES was offended by the song ‘Leroy the Redneck Reindeer,’ which was to be performed by the third-graders. Scott claims the song is racist and disrespectful, specifically the line ‘Santa wrapped his bag with a Dixie Flag, he was having the time of his life.’ She said the flag is symbolic of the Ku Klux Klan.”

- Emily Banks, Polk County (TX) Enterprise, 12/5/04


“So what happened to the (immigration) provisions in the intelligence bill? They didn't make it. They were cut out during House-Senate negotiations. The reason was simple: Hispandering. (Pandering for the Hispanic vote.) Neither party wants to offend this increasingly powerful group of voter. even when it comes to protecting Americans from terrorists who may cross the borders.”

- Talk show host Neal Boortz

“In reality, despite over-whelming support in polls, (drug) importation is a terrible idea. Drug costs are lower in other countries because they impose price controls, so importation amounts to imposing price controls in the United States.”

- Columnist Morton Kondracke


“With 2008 just four years away, it's not too early to rule New York governor George Elmer Pataki unfit for the GOP nomination. Republicans should study his record and keep him as far from their party's ticket as Albany is from Albuquerque. After 10 years as governor, Pataki's legacy rests on three legs: an anemic economy, a listless state Republican party, and a deteriorating ethical climate.”

- Columnist Deroy Murdock


“You can never be too rich or too quick off the mark to express interest in the White House. Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., on Wednesday became the first to declare his 2008 intentions, if not his candidacy, in what may well turn into a stampede of hopefuls in both parties. ‘Are you going to run this time?’ Don Imus asked him on MSNBC's Imus in the Morning. ‘Well, I'm going to proceed as if I'm going to run,’ Biden said.”

- USA Today, 12/9/04


“Ashcroft v. Raich, the Supreme Court's medical marijuana case, isn't really about medical marijuana. It's about power -- the power of Congress to exert control, and the power of the Constitution to rein Congress in. . . . (California’s) Compassionate Use Act of 1996...exempts the use of marijuana under a doctor's supervision from criminal sanction… But under the federal Controlled Substances Act of 1970, the possession of marijuana for any reason is illegal.

“The question for the court is which law should prevail in this case: state or federal? . . . Does Congress have the right to criminalize the possession of minuscule amounts of marijuana, not bought on the illicit drug market, and used as medicine? . . . Where does the Constitution empower Congress to bar pain-wracked patients from using the marijuana their doctors say they need?”

- Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby


“With the agenda of the political left increasingly rejected by voters at the polls, the only way to get the items on that agenda enacted into law is to have judges who will decree the liberal agenda from the bench. . . . With activist judges guided only by their own ideology and conservative judges reluctant to overturn precedents, the agenda of the left is easy to enact from the bench and hard to dislodge afterward.”

- Columnist Thomas Sowell


"…(T)he opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch."

- Thomas Jefferson
