Criticism mounting for Vikings, Adrian Peterson By JON KRAWCZYNSKI, AP MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — For as long as he's been in the NFL, Adrian Peterson has been one of the most popular and most marketable stars in the league. Now that he is facing a felony charge of child abuse for spanking his 4-year-old son with a wooden switch, the Minnesota Vikings star running back is facing criticism like he never has before. In the wake of the Vikings' decision to allow Peterson to play while the legal process plays out, the Radisson hotel chain has suspended its sponsorship agreement with the team. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton said on Tuesday that Peterson should remain suspended while his case unfolds. A sports apparel store at a suburban Minneapolis shopping mall has pulled all Peterson items from the shelves while the matter is under investigation. --- Another failure for Roger Goodell. Why is this team being allowed to put Adrian Peterson on the field? Goodell must go!

Courtesy of Mish. In the past few days, three candidates who ran for the last Republican presidential nomination, including nominee Mitt Romney, have endorsed a higher minimum wage. Yahoo!Finance asks Mitt Romney Calls for Higher Minimum Wage. Does it Matter? Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential nominee in 2012, called on Republicans Friday to raise the minimum wage, going against the congressional leadership of his own party. Related Stories "I think we ought to raise it, because frankly, our party is all about more jobs and better pay, and I think communicating that is important to us," Mr. Romney said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” In recent days, two other Republican presidential hopefuls from 2012 – Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania – have also called for a minimum wage hike. The trend may signal that in presidential politics, some Republicans see the issue as a way to soften the party’s image across a broad electorate. On MSNBC, Romney linked ...

While the field of 32 Republican lawmakers mostly included the usual suspects, such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas), it also presents a few unusual options, such as former Florida Rep. Allen West. A handful of previous GOP presidential candidates also made the cut: Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former Texas Rep.

The Battle of Gettysburg took place 150 years ago but there is still some bad blood between a pair of Northern and Southern states as a result. Here's the controversy: The Minnesota Historical Society has a Confederate flag in its possession, captured by the Minnesota 1st Volunteer Infantry Regiment from the 28th Virginia Volunteer Infantry Regimenton during the last day of the battle. For the sake of the 150th anniversary of Gettysburg, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell asked Minnesota to loan it to them (McDonnell is the governor who had declared April 2010 "Confederate History Month" at the behest of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, but then apologized for not mentioning slavery in the proclamation.) Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton's response to the request was simple: No way.

Two other Democratic governors can’t make up their mind whether to issue a proclamation making Reagan’s 102nd birthday a day honoring the Gipper. Patrick is a personal friend of Obama’s who campaigned for him and was considered a possible contender for attorney general if Eric Holder had stepped down. Abercrombie is viewed as something of a mentor to the president, with whom he goes back, well, forever. He was friendly with Obama’s parents. The other Democratic governors refusing to honor Reagan are Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, Oregon Gov.

Jesse Ventura was removed by Huffington Post after it was published March 9 and replaced with a note that states the site "prohibits the promotion and promulgation of conspiracy theories -- including those about 9/11." You didn't see anything about it in the mainstream media, but at a recent conference in San Francisco, more than 1,000 architects and engineers signed a petition demanding that Congress begin a new investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9-11. That's right, these people put their reputations in potential jeopardy -- because they don't buy the government's version of events. They want to know how 200,000 tons of steel disintegrated and fell to the ground in 11 seconds. They question whether the hijacked planes were responsible or whether it could have been a controlled demolition from inside that brought down the twin towers and WTC Buildi ...

1.) What is a libertarian Marxist? -- Apparently Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura. Or not. It depends. Consistency isn't really his thing. TheDC's Jamie Weinstein (ME!) reports: "Castro ran — and his brother now runs — a freedomless despotism, Jesse! By definition, that’s inhumane, TheDC argued. 'Wait a minute, that’s Communism,' he protested. 'It’s a different form a government.' Does Ventura, who sometimes claims he’s libertarian, not have a problem with Communism? 'Communism is what it is,' he said. 'I don’t support Communism. I don’t like that type of government.' Contradicting himself, as he did on more than one occasion during the interview, he then claimed that Communism may actually be the best political system. 'The Communism of Karl Marx would probably be actually the best for everybody as a whole,' he explained. 'But what he didn’t figure into was human nature and that’s what corrupts it.'" Read the whole interview. It's wild. 2.) President Obama, uniter -- Well, maybe n ...

Biologists in Lake Carlos State Park near Alexandria let loose the lethal weapon on zebra mussels for the first time Friday, Aug. 17, infesting the park's namesake lake. It's part of an experiment to see if Zequanox, a natural material toxic to the invasive mollusks, is all it's cracked up to be. Which is this: Zequanox kills zebra mussels, but is safe for people, waterfowl, fish, native mussels and pretty much every ...

"President Obama has been claiming that his economic policies have 'worked.' This morning's GDP numbers suggest otherwise," Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty wrote in a statement from Romney's team. "It seems that the President's poor stewardship of the economy is only going to come to an end when his term comes to an end. Instead of generating growth and jobs, he has only generated uncertainty. Let's hope that the President finds the time amid his busy fundraising schedule to meet with his Jobs Council at least on one more occasion in what remains of his failed presidency.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is appealing the Federal Emergency Management Agency's denial of a request for federal aid to help northeastern Minnesota homeowners and businesses repair properties damaged in last month's floods. Dayton said Wednesday, July 25, that the denial was wrong and he is "deeply disappointed." The governor directed the state's top Homeland Security and Emergency Management official to appeal the decision immediately. FEMA denied the state's request for individual assistance, saying the damage was "not of such severity and magnitude" to qualify. The denial does not affect a federal disaster request for help repairing more than $100 million in damage to roads and other public infrastructure. Dayton is expected to call a special legislative session in late August to consider state aid for flood recovery.
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton apologized Thursday for comparing NFL players in trouble with the law to veterans returning from war.The first-term Democrat said in a statement that he made a poor analogy when he used the comparison in an interview Tuesday with Minnesota Public Radio.In that interview, Dayton theorized on the troubles of professional football players, including Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, and said that football was "basically slightly civilized war.""I regret my mistake, and I apologize for it," Dayton said.Spokeswoman Katie Tinucci said Dayton had heard from some constituents on the comments and regretted the comparison when he looked back on what he said.The governor says some of the "psychological dynamics" may be similar but he didn't mean to compare the NFL players' problems to the hardships experienced by war heroes from Iraq and Afghanistan. Dayton says he reserves his highest respect for soldiers in uniform.
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton defended the character of Adrian Peterson while characterizing as "troubling" the Vikings
For Mitt Romney, a safe, dull running mate would be a feature, not a bug. Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and ex-Minnesota Gov. Tom Pawlenty are the top VP contenders.
Who will Mitt Romney pick as a running mate? My guess is he will pick someone more white, bland and boring than he is -- and that's either Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio or Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty -- there will be no game-changer like a Sarah Palin or Chris Christie because Romney doesn't want to be overshadowed or outshined by someone with personality (even if it's bad personality) -- Portman has ties to George W. Bush so my pick is Pawlenty.
