U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin lamented Friday night that “it's hard to get anything done in this Congress” during a friendly gab-fest with about a hundred of the party faithful at the Peking Restaurant.  The problem these days is Congress is divided, said Manchin, D-W.Va. The members don't know each other. “There's no collegiate atmosphere,” he said. “It's hard to say no to somebody that you know or care about. But it's easier to say no if you don't know somebody.”  Manchin hammered at the nation's fiscal problems, saying it won't be fixed if members of Congress keep blaming each other.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. martinsburg@herald-mail.com The road leading to Orchard View Intermediate School is an inadequate, bumpy and patched embodiment of why voters should cast a ballot in favor of a pension bond amendment on Saturday, Berkeley County Board of Education member Bill Queen told a group of about 100 people Tuesday. Allowing the state to sell up to $5.5 billion in bonds for pension plan debt will help to ensure other needs - such as education and road needs - are met, Queen told elected officials, business leaders and community members.

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin told community leaders in the Eastern Panhandle Friday to pick their top priority to spur economic development as a region and avoid only looking out for their own small territories. “You can't go down (to Washington, D.C.) there with a wish list and think we're going to do it all,” Manchin, D-W.Va., told a bipartisan group of political and business leaders at the Holiday Inn in Martinsburg. The “Coffee and Commonsense” lunch-time session was the last of four stops that Manchin made before leaving Martinsburg Friday afternoon for Fairmont, W.Va.

People crowded the sidewalk and spilled into West King Street across from U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin's office in Martinsburg on Saturday for a Second Amendment rally and protest. “I think he's sold us out,” Keith Morgan, president of the West Virginia Citizens Defense League, told a crowd of more than 150 people who held signs and cheered motorists who beeped their horns in support as they passed by. Two blocks away at town square, a crowd of about 40 people rallied in support of Manchin, D-W.Va., who has advocated for a discussion on the causes of mass violence, including military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin said President Obama's years in office “could have been a lot better” and the state's junior senator gave no indication he would vote for the Democratic president in the Nov. 6 general election. “There's some high water marks - foreign policy, Osama bin Laden, the auto industry (recovery) ... you can always second guess, but there's some strong points,” said Manchin, D-W.Va., while eating a chicken burrito at Habanero Mexican Grill. The downtown Martinsburg restaurant was among several places Manchin visited Tuesday in Martinsburg, Charles Town and Ranson as part of his “West Virginia First” listening tour.

Automatic federal budget cuts set to take effect Friday would mean thousands of temporary layoffs for National Guard and civilian defense workers in West Virginia, including those at the 167th Airlift Wing near Martinsburg, along with reduced funding for several other programs, U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin said Tuesday. The West Virginia Democrat said on a conference call that he's discouraged Congress hasn't reached a long-term, bipartisan compromise, but he's still “very hopeful” a deal can be completed before month's end. Manchin called the proposed widespread cuts “ludicrous.” “I just think there's a smarter way to do it,” he said.

By JOE MANCHIN III | December 29, 2012
In the days after the horrific tragedy in Newtown, Conn., I made it clear that I believe it is time for us to move from rhetoric to action to prevent future acts of senseless mass violence. Since then, much has been made of those comments - some of it accurately reflecting what I said, some not. Because I am an A-rated, lifelong member of the National Rifle Association and a proud defender of the Second Amendment, some people viewed my comments as a tipping point in the debate about guns in America.
