George W. Bush
Here’s a look at the four things you need to know for Sunday, July 26.
Former President George W. Bush and pop star Katy Perry will headline this year’s Starkey Hearing Foundation awards gala in St. Paul. Bush will be honored for working with the foundation to give customized hearing devices to 222 people in Tanzania.
Jeb Bush is launching a Republican presidential bid months in the making Monday with a vow to get Washington “out of the business of causing problems” and to stay true to his beliefs — easier said than done in a bristling primary contest where his conservative credentials will be sharply challenged.
Likely Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker made no secret about what he saw as the failures of Mitt Romney’s last run for the White House, devoting an entire chapter of his book to the topic.
On Tuesday night, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted French President François Hollande for an official state dinner at the White House.
Minneapolis South High senior Lillie Ouellette-Howitz has been crowned a national debate champion after taking first in public speaking at the George W. Bush Institute’s annual national high school economic debate competition in Dallas, Texas.
The former president’s surgery took place at a private hospital in Dallas, which had some people wondering: What benefits do former presidents receive? How about members of Congress after they leave office?
Gov. Scott Walker is distancing himself from talk of running for president after word surfaced he’s working on a memoir.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a possible contender for the presidency in 2016, is writing a memoir detailing the reforms he has introduced during his two years in office.
She will remain the one woman in a leadership position in the room when important issues effecting women are negotiated over the next year and a strong reminder that Democrats stand with women and promote them to positions of power.
When the deal is being made to change the tax rates and cut the deficit we must remember to keep our commitment to our veterans.
Rove has managed to spin himself a personal fortune in national politics. His reputation, however, does not match his accomplishments.
Even the most liberal of Democrats must agree that Obama’s inability to get foes to work with him is severely impeding any progress this country.
A major independent group working to elect Republican Mitt Romney is entering Minnesota’s TV market just days before Election Day with a $1.4 million ad buy, and former President Bill Clinton will make his second trip to the state in less than a week on Sunday.
Governor Christie went out of his way to praise the work that the President and his administration are doing, something that he got a lot of credit for…outside of the right-wing blogosphere.
Romney was asked at a presidential debate whether FEMA should be shut down in light of the deficit. Romney replied that FEMA should “absolutely” be shut down. He was asked specifically if that included disaster relief. He replied that it was “immoral” to provide such relief in the face of “larger debts”, emphasizing that “it makes no sense at all” to have such programs.
Auto manufacturing is back in America – especially in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania because President Obama made the politically risky decision to bailout the auto industry after bailing out the banks. It was a decision that worked. Obama was right, Romney was wrong. So Romney is now in full lying mode. He is trying to retroactively re-write the wrongs in his writings.
The 2012 presidential campaign between President Obama and Mitt Romney will be book-ended by hurricanes.

In an odd turn of events, the Republicans in Tampa nominated real life versions of their cartoon versions of Kerry and Gore. Republicans thought John Kerry should be criticized for changing positions. But Kerry is not in the same league as Romney who ran as a pro-choice candidate and promised to do more for gay rights than Ted Kennedy.
As Hurricane Isaac threatens the Gulf again, we will see if Katrina and Isaac serve as bookends of GOP hostility to federal disaster relief. An odd stance for a party that claims to “choose life” while watching people die in natural disasters rather than provide an adequate response.
It isn’t just Republican Members of Congress that have junk theories they attach to pseudo-science. Kevin D. Williamson, a conservative writer for the National Review, thinks based on their offspring, genetics and “evolutionary biology” Barack Obama should have ovaries and that Mitt Romney should owns him in this election, “Like a Boss”.
Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson has won the Republican nomination for a U.S. Senate seat the party is trying to capture for the first time in more than five decades.
