Why I'm Grateful to Bush 41

Today many people think that "disability issues" are the domain of Democrats. But that was not the case back in 1990 when ADA was passed, and should not be that way now. President George H.W. Bush (Bush 41) cares deeply about disability issues.

Improving teaching and learning in the classroom should have been the focus of attention, not tests and charter schools. "Fast and dirty" solutions, such as pressuring teachers to raise test scores, were a mistake.

Democratic Presidential candidate Bernard Sanders is drawing overflow crowds. He is garnering support at the grassroots level, and is raising "eye-popping" amounts of cash from small donors. Some of his enthusiastic adherents seem to believe there is no God but Bernie Sanders.

Jurassic Politics: Hillary, Invoking FDR, Runs Left of Obama While Jeb Bush Does Straight Remake

William Bradley | Posted 06.17.2015 | Politics

Is there a certain synchronicity at work with Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush staging their big formal campaign openings just as Jurassic World oddly enjoys the biggest opening weekend of all time with its recycled plot (albeit with new bells and whistles) about the dangerous majesty of rampaging dinosaurs? It has to be.

Jeb Bush could wind up being America's next president. That's a statement that my fingers would actually refuse to type for several other Republicans, just because attempting to substitute "Donald Trump" or "Carly Fiorina" in that sentence would be so downright laughable.

No, Jeb Bush Is Not the Wiser Bush Brother

John A. Tures

After George W. Bush's tenure in office came to a conclusion, Republicans who were hoping Jeb Bush could succeed him in 2008 and 2012 asked me about his chances. "He'd do better, right? He's the smarter of the two, right?" Sadly, as Jeb's 2016 campaign struggles, it has confirmed the responses I gave several years ago. He's not the wiser brother.

Gulf War 2 a Bush Disaster? So was Gulf War 1.

Barry Lando

Critics of George W.'s actions overlook the fact that it was his father, George H.W. Bush, who, in 1990, set the stage for his son's disastrous moves 13 years later. It was Papa Bush, after all, who sent American troops halfway around the world to launch the First Gulf War -- an error of tragic proportions.

Jeb Has Fallen Into the Trap. It's Not About What You Know Now, It's About Who You Are

Jeb Bush finally got his answer right. Bowing to the political correctness of the moment, the aspiring President Bush III fell into line and spoke the magic words. If I knew then what I know now, I would not have launched an invasion of Iraq.

Lack of Media Context Skews View of Obama's Gulf Arab Summit

William Bradley | Posted 05.16.2015 | Politics

You'd think that more than 40 years of fixation on the Middle East, often to the exclusion of more important areas of the world, would at least enable sophisticated media coverage of Middle Eastern politics as it impacts American politics. But no.

A Third Dubya Term?

Are American voters now being given the option of choosing a virtual third term for George W. Bush? Astonishingly enough, that seems to be the direction his brother's campaign has chosen to head towards.

What American Voters Can Learn From the Brits

For too long American politicians have gotten off easy, not just from the press but from the voters as well. Because of our acquiescence, we have let the lunatics take over the asylum. The British model demonstrates that things don't have to be that way.

While The Riot Club is fairly predictable, its cast is no doubt a showcasing of the stars of British cinema's future not unlike our own The Outsiders (1983) that supplied us with Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, and so many more.
