in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Sarasota area Republican Congressman Vern Buchanan says that the U.S. should “never buckle to the threats of a foreign government,” and that’s why he supports legislation that aims to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for any involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. “Even an ally like Saudi Arabia needs to understand our country will never compromise when it comes to keeping Americans safe and punishing those behind terrorist attacks,” Buchanan says. “If they were involved the truth needs to come out and they…

On Fox News, Marco Rubio denies he’s flip-flopped on Iraq and immigration

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Although Jeb Bush was raked over the coals last week by the press for his meandering answers about whether it was appropriate to invade Iraq in 2003 in retrospect, less noted was how Marco Rubio appeared to flip-flop on his response to the same question. That’s why on Sunday Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace tried to pin the Florida Senator down on where he stands on the issue.

Mr. Kendrick Meek talks to Saint Petersblog

in Peter/Statewide by

The call came late Tuesday night. It was from Ana Cruz, the ultra-connected Tampa political consultant helping to direct Congressman Kendrick Meek’s campaign for the US Senate: Would I like to interview Meek for my blog, she asked. She already knew my answer would be a resounding ‘Yes’. I had been e-mailing back-and-forth with Kenneth Quinnell, the progressive blogger who is now leading Meek’s efforts to connect with new media.
