Santorum: Maxine Waters is ‘vile’

Published

on

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum lashed out at Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) Monday, calling her “vile.”

At a jobs summit at Inglewood High School Sunday, the congresswoman had said she wasn’t going to back down from her push for job-creation policies.

“This is a tough game,” she explained. “You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned — the tea party can go straight to hell.”

“She’s a caricature of what’s wrong with Congress,” Santorum told conservative radio host Steve Malzberg. “She’s vile. She’s always been that way, and she’s just one of these real, real nasty, you know, anti-basic traditional, fundamental values of this country.”

“This is the left in America. They absolutely despise, you know, the founding principles of this country, that believes in free people, that believes in limited government. She is someone who believes she should control what’s going on in America, that she knows best, and that people that stand by constitutional principles of limited government are folks who are to be condemned.”

This audio is from the WOR’s The Steve Malzberg Show, recorded Aug 22, 2011.

The US has also sought to bar Chinese telecom giant Huawei from the American market and limit its ability to purchase US technology.

A statement by the delivery firm said the restrictions placed "an unreasonable burden on FedEx to police the millions of shipments that transit our network every day" or face heavy fines.

New report targets 15 House Democrats who ‘deserve’ progressive primary challengers

Published

on

As progressive candidates continue to announce their intentions to oust corporate Democrats, a new report names 15 House Democrats to unseat in primary challenges.

Published Monday by the left-leaning group RootsAction, the new report is entitled Bad Blues: Some of the House Democrats Who Deserve to Be 'Primaried.'

The list, the report notes, "is by no means exhaustive—only illustrative."

"There may well be a Democratic member of Congress near you not included here who serves corporate interests more than majority interests, or has simply grown tired or complacent in the never-ending struggles for social, racial, and economic justice as well as environmental sanity and peace," the report notes. "Perhaps you live in a district where voters are ready to be inspired by a progressive primary candidate because the Democrat in Congress is not up to the job."
