Letter to the Editor: How about ‘Make America Normal Again’?

Letters to the Editor

Frank Daniels’ DSN Commentary (3/16), “Joe Biden would be president in name only,” presented an anti-Biden story using lopsided logic. Since fanatics present their propaganda by puffing up only the positives and sweeping all the negatives under the rug, let me point out some of what Daniels deliberately hid or refused to see or talk […]

Letter to the Editor: Don’t underestimate Blunt Rochester

Letters to the Editor

For those letter writers who are having difficulty accepting our U.S. Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester’s recent acceptance as co-chair for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign and being fearful of her not being able to attend to her responsibilities as Delaware’s representative in Congress, I say to you: You underestimate Lisa. I followed her career when she […]

Commentary: Joe Biden would be president in name only

Commentary

By Frank Daniels The cartoon in last week’s paper showing Joe Biden’s resurrection was incredibly apropos.  How does a politician with multiple failed presidential attempts, who prior to South Carolina had never won a state primary, become the savior for the Democrat party?  The answer is simple: The Washington swamp has coalesced and picked themselves […]

Letter to the Editor: Blunt Rochester shouldn’t ‘take another job’

Letters to the Editor

I agree with Chuck Mankin of Smyrna (“Elected Representative Working a Second Job is Disturbing,”) Delaware State News, March 10, 2020.).  Lisa Blunt Rochester has no business taking on another job being Biden’s co-chair for his presidential campaign.  In her three years as our sole representative, she has not represented the citizens of Delaware.  She […]

Biden, Sanders press contrast with Trump in virus speeches

WILMINGTON — Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Thursday called for a sweeping national response to the coronavirus outbreak, chiding President Donald Trump for a response he said was woefully insufficient and warning that the widening public health crisis should not be viewed through a lens of politics. “This administration has left us woefully unprepared […]

Letter to the Editor: Blunt Rochester should pick a job

Letters to the Editor

I find it interesting and a bit disturbing that our only representative in Washington, Lisa Blunt Rochester, has a second job now. Given the fact that our economy is stagnant, our federal highways are crumbling, and our state is high on the list for opioid deaths, I think she needs to focus on the job […]

Biden’s turnabout remakes Democratic race

WASHINGTON — Less than a month ago, Joe Biden’s campaign was in free fall. Even after he mounted a comeback in South Carolina, he confronted the reality of competing in crucial Super Tuesday contests with little money and no discernible campaign infrastructure. It didn’t matter. The former vice president swept to victory in Democratic primary […]

Bloomberg drops out of presidential race, endorses Biden

NEW YORK — Billionaire Mike Bloomberg ended his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination on Wednesday and endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden. It was a stunning collapse for the former New York City mayor, who had his 2020 hopes on the Super Tuesday states and pumped more than $500 million of his own fortune […]

Biden nabs Klobuchar, Buttigieg backing on Super Tuesday eve

SELMA, Ala. — Rivals no more, Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg united behind Joe Biden’s presidential bid on Monday as the Democratic Party’s moderate wing scrambled to boost the former vice president just hours before voting began across a series of high-stakes Super Tuesday states. Klobuchar formally suspended her campaign and endorsed Biden on Monday, […]

Biden takes on Sanders’ gun votes

LAS VEGAS — Joe Biden, standing on a Las Vegas stage roughly 1,000 feet from the scene of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, took on White House rival Bernie Sanders for his past vote to exempt gun manufacturers from liability for shootings. The former vice president devoted the majority of his Saturday […]
