Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Beat,‏” former Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA) reacted to reports President Donald Trump is considering his son-in-law Jared Kushner to replace John Kelly as White House chief of staff. Rendell said, “Ronald Reagan had James Baker, Bill Clinton had Leon Panetta, George Bush —the second George Bush had Andrew Card. These are people with rich and deep government experience. Jared Kushner has had some experience in these last two years, but didn’t have a sufficient security clearance. We’re going to make that person chief of staff? Hardly. I mean it shows that I think if this is true, its only meaning that is no one who’s got any credibility will take the job.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

The First Family has broken with tradition: There’s no canine companion in the White House. In his homily for the state funeral of former President George H.W. Bush on December 5, Rev. Russell Levenson Jr. joked that Sully, Bush’s loyal service dog, had probably received more press attention in recent days than the president himself. That sentiment echoed Fala, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Scottish terrier, who was so popular with the US public that he received more fan mail than the president himself.Historically, First Canines have been a staple of life in the White House. Barack Obama had Bo and Sunny, two Portuguese water dogs. George W. Bush had Spot, a Springer spaniel, and Barney, a Scottish terrier. Bill Clinton had Buddy, a chocolate Labrador retriever. Before he needed the services of Sully, George H.W. Bush had Millie, a Springer spaniel (Spot’s mother). Ronald Reagan had Lucky, a fluffy black Bouvier des Flandres. John F. Kennedy had Charlie, a Welsh...

That United States commanders-in-chief are not put to the same test before they are allowed to lead the troops or to order the use of nuclear weapons is, I believe, a serious omission. Since the beginning of Donald Trump’s presidency, mental health professionals have come forth in historically unprecedented ways to warn against entrusting the U.S. presidency to someone who exhibits what we have called his “dangerous” signs.The observed signs have included “grandiosity, impulsivity, hypersensitivity to slights or criticism, and an apparent inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality.”As a psychiatrist and expert on violence, I worked with my colleagues to put our observations into a book, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President,” responding to the hunger for understanding on the part of the public.I was never interested in domestic partisan politics until it coincided with my concerns for public safe...

George HW Bush, the former US president, was remembered as a "noble" man of “great humility” on Wednesday at a state funeral attended by much of America’s political establishment. Emotional eulogies from his son and friends remembered the 41st president as a “class act” who dedicated his life to public service and embodied courage, both political and personal.    In a service dominated by the messages of unity and patriotism, speakers praised Mr Bush’s opposition to “unthinking partisanship” and awareness that “hatred corrodes”.  Jon Meacham, a presidential historian, summed up Mr Bush’s approach to life as “tell the truth, don’t blame people, be strong, do your best, try hard, forgive, stay the course”. The messages were interpreted as a call for civility in politics at a time when the country is bitterly divided along party lines. Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and their wives sit together for George H W Bush's fun...

"It’s not like it’s going to haunt him.” Republicans can be very inconsistent when it comes to the federal deficit, downplaying the importance of rising deficits under President George W. Bush or President Ronald Reagan but declaring that the federal deficit under President Barack Obama would surely be the United States’ downfall. This pattern has continued in the Trump era, with President Donald J. Trump showing little or no concern for how much the deficit will increase under his watch. And when the president was reminded how unwieldy the deficit could become in the future after he leaves office—whether that’s in early 2021 or early 2025—his flippant response was, “Yeah, but I won’t be here.”Trump, according to the Daily Beast, made that comment in early 2017 during a discussion on how high the federal deficit would ultimately become. Rather than focus on tax hikes for the 1%—which he is vehemently opposed to—or spending cuts, Trump seemingly belie...

Vladimir Putin has said Moscow will develop new mid-range nuclear weapons in response to Donald Trump's planned withdrawal from a key arms control treaty with Russia.  The statement came after secretary of state Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday that the United States would no longer abide by the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty if Russia did not come into compliance within 60 days.   Mr Putin insisted that he was “against the destruction of this treaty,” but agreed with Mr Trump's complaint that it ties the hands of the two Cold War foes while other countries can develop short- and intermediate-range nuclear missiles.  “Now our American partners apparently think the situation has changed so much that the United States also needs to have this kind of weapon. What will our response be? It's simple. We will also do this,” he said.  In fact, Moscow is already doing this, if Washington is to be believed. Barack Obama's administration first accused the Kre...

Bush Sr. was vice president when the Reagan administration conspired to deceive and defy Congress with its illegal arms sale to Iran in exchange for securing the release of American hostages in Lebanon.

Democrats are keeping an eye on John Hickenlooper, Stephen Bullock, Jay Inslee, and Gavin Newsom As the 2020 presidential campaign commences now that the midterm elections of 2018 are over, four governors from western states may decide to compete for the Democratic nomination, and could play a major role. One is leaving office and has given evidence of interest in running; two others are still in office and have gained notice for their skills as governors; and one is about to enter office with at least long range presidential ambitions. Having a western governor in the White House would be nearly unique, as only California Governor Ronald Reagan ever achieved the presidency, coming from a western state. But this time, it could be a Democrat from the west in the White House.John Hickenlooper of Colorado is finishing eight years as chief executive of the Rocky Mountain state, and had previously been the mayor of Denver from 2002-2011.

In October 1987, when George H.W. Bush announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States, Newsweek magazine ran a cover story titled “Fighting the ‘Wimp Factor.’” The article did not quite come out and declare that Bush was a weakling, and it noted that Bush’s own advisers were worried about the “wimp” label. As the 41st president, Bush was anything but a wimp. In 1991, he had the courage to abandon his own “read my lips” vow and instead raise taxes in the cause of restoring fiscal sanity to the federal budget, left badly out of whack by his predecessor, Ronald Reagan.

George Bush was an American patrician who brought great talents to the presidency and wrought great achievements, but never quite grasped the pitiless frivolity of US politics. Bush was elected to office in 1988 after eight years as vice president to his fellow Republican, Ronald Reagan. Where Reagan’s great achievement, in foreign affairs, was to perceive the weakness of the Soviet Union, to stand up to the Soviet leadership and eventually to reach agreements with the Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, Bush inherited a world in which Communist regimes were already collapsing, in which the United States found itself, somewhat to its own surprise, as the only superpower.

When right-wing media figures are nervous, they'll cling to any desperate excuse. In the early 1990s, AM talk radio star Rush Limbaugh was very critical of Republican Patrick Buchanan’s protectionist, isolationist “America first” agenda. But now that President Donald Trump is promoting that same type of agenda, Limbaugh is one of Trump’s leading carnival barkers—and that includes jumping through hoops to defame the Russia-related investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Limbaugh has made one ridiculous comment after another about Mueller’s probe, trying to paint the special counsel as a shameless tool of the Democratic Party despite his numerous GOP connections.But then, Limbaugh has always had his contradictions. Limbaugh, infamously, had a major addiction to OxyContin in 2003 when he was still ranting and raving in favor of the War on Drugs and draconian prison sentences for even minor drug offenses.
