When 66 percent of the American people do not approve of a president's foreign policy, something is awfully wrong with 1) the policy; 2) the selling of the policy; 3) the staffers formulating the policy. Betting on the remaining 34 percent who approve -- the isolationist fringes of both parties -- represents a dangerous sliver on which to bank a national security legacy.
Bill and Hillary are going to be my neighbors in Amagansett this summer. They arrive tomorrow. But, they are definitely laying low this August, compared to their fancier digs of years past.
Defeatism infects the Democratic Party's bloodstream. This affliction is systemic and chronic. It has spread through every limb and organ of the party from the White House to towns across America.
That's right. Republicans have sued the President of the United States. That's a pretty serious action. Must've been over something so egregious... something so detrimental to America's health and welfare... something that, if unchecked, could literally bring down our great nation. Guess again.
With all the conflicts going on these days, of course it's natural for journalists to cover every gory aspect of them. I get that. The thing is, that you're repeating the same old story of blame and accusation.
It would almost be amusing if it wasn't for the fact that the world is in chaos. And things aren't much better at home where, among other things, we've got a humanitarian crisis at the border.
Over the last year I've subscribed to a number of YouTube channels that have consistently helped me identify new trends, understand best practices, and spot high-impact opportunities. Here is a list of my favorites.
The biggest problem with Ryan's plan, besides its potential to become a bureaucratic nightmare, is that it was tried once before under President Bill Clinton in 1996 with welfare reform and was met with mixed results.
This week, Paul Ryan, who cashed federal support checks in the form of social security payments after his dad died, wants to stop federal support of the needy. Congressman Ryan would like to fund states with block grants replacing programs that he says don't work.
We need to thank him for keeping his promise and taking another step toward securing full civil and human rights for the LGBT community. We have come a long way during his presidency.
For years I avoided engaging in discussions about the Israel/Arab situation -- I just didn't want to deal with it. That all changed about three-and-a-half years ago when my parents moved to Jerusalem. Now my immediate family is there and my comfort in the ability to duck the debate vanished.
I've been to my fair share of special nights in wine country, but this evening tops them all. I got to shake hands with Sophia Loren.
Rarely do a man, moment, mission and election come together as perfectly as the opportunity for Bill Clinton to save the Democratic Party in the 2014 midterm elections.
Barack Obama's Justice Department on Monday announced that Citigroup would pay $7 billion in fines, a move that will avoid a humiliating trial dealing with the seamy financial products the bank had marketed to an unsuspecting public, causing vast damage to the economy.
"Life's not about what happens to you, it's about with what you do with what happens to you." According to the New York Times, Chelsea Clinton often proffers this pearl of wisdom in her high-priced speeches.
Every year we commemorate the genocide, we expect that those who betrayed Srebrenica might this time ask for forgiveness from the survivors.
