The Iraq War: Who Got It Wrong

The Iraq War: Who Got It Wrong

  March 11, 2013 By Jason Sattler The shock of 9/11 and the rapid appearance of success in ousting the Taliban presented George W. Bush with political power few U.S. presidents have enjoyed. Bush’s approval rating shot up to an astounding 90 percent in the aftermath of the largest-ever terror attack on Americans. Less than a year later, the Republican Party picked up eight House seats and control of the Senate — one of the few times in history the president’s party ... Full Story

NRA lies about school guards

Thousands of people in the United States die from gunshots every year. They are all tragedies, but some more than others. The ready availability of guns, the increasing ease of concealed carry and laws that shield people from prosecution when they shoot someone, all contribute to this national shame. Perhaps it is just my opinion that the killing of 26 innocent people at an elementary school is shameful, the NRA does not seem agree with me. When people carry or have access to guns, they are ...

Romney hates America?

Romney hates America?

          Does Romney dislike America?     By E.J. Dionne Jr.    The most incisive reaction to Mitt Romney’s disparaging comments about 47 percent of us came from a conservative friend who e-mailed: “If I were you, I’d wonder why Romney hates America so much.” A bit strong, perhaps.

Massacres, more to come

Massacres, more to come

      A tragedy we will not try to avert By Eugene Robinson,  Will we even pretend to do anything to prevent the next mass shooting by a crazed loner? I doubt it. We’ll just add Aurora to the growing list — Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson — and wait for the inevitable. When that next atrocity comes, we’ll tell each other we’re shocked and stunned, knowing full well we should be neither. We’ll probe the assailant’s life in search of a motive, ... Full Story

More Romney lies

        Mitt Romney’s claim of credit for the auto industry turnaround Posted by Glenn Kessler What should we do when a politician keeps repeating a Pinocchio-laden claim — or even makes its worse? We have examined previously the former Massachusetts governor’s claim that he set the course for the managed bankruptcy of the auto industry—and also have examined critically some of President Obama’s claims on the bailout. But clearly it’s time ... Full Story

Romney, a man of falsehoods

Romney, a man of falsehoods

      OPINIONS   Mitt Romney, a man of falsehoods  By Richard Cohen, Published: April 16 Among the attributes I most envy in a public man (or woman) is the ability to lie. If that ability is coupled with no sense of humor, you have the sort of man who can be a successful football coach, a CEO or, when you come right down to it, a presidential candidate. Such a man is Mitt Romney. Time and time again, Romney has been called a liar during ... Full Story
