The New York Times’ Elisabeth Bumiller: “ At Pentagon, No Words Will Fill Void” Vice President Joseph R.

The Hill’s Meghashyam: “ Obama: Last Ten years show ‘America does not give in to fear” In remarks commemorating the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, President Obama praised the nation for its resilience and said the last decade had “shown that America does not give in to fear.” LINK

G.O.P.: The Washington Times’ Sean Lengell: “ GOP smells blood in race to fill Weiner seat in N.Y.” Bob Turner, once considered a long shot to replace disgraced former Rep. Anthony D.

The Boston Globe’s Michael Levenson: “ Perry, GOP differ on immigration” When it comes to policies aimed at illegal immigrants, Governor Rick Perry of Texas is on one side of the fence, his GOP rivals on the other.

The Wall Street Journal’s Jonathan Weisman: “ In Texas, a Weak Office Becomes Stronger” In 2009, two days before an agency called the Texas Forensic Science Commission was to hear evidence that an innocent man may have been put to death, Gov.

USA Today’s Jackie Kucinich: “ Rick Perry and Mitt Romney battle for GOP endorsements” Texas Gov.
