The administration's Iraq policy has failed. The U.S. is more entangled in conflict and war; Americans have been killed in retaliation for Washington's intervention; the Islamic State is still advancing; U.S. allies continue to free ride on America; Washington hopes to square a nonexistent circle in Syria.
We caught "Brownie," as Bush called him, on the air saying he doesn't want "stupid people" to vote, because they're "more likely than not to vote for a Democrat."
While it may not be popular with fellow thugs, the Islamic State has managed to take over much of Iraq and Syria. Predictably, Washington seems more interested in assigning blame for the situation than dealing with it. Sen. John McCain, for instance.
The notion that we see our electoral politics as akin to the 2004 Indonesian tsunami or any of the countless other natural disasters which have killed millions without warning is telling. And what it suggests about who we are politically is of far greater concern than which party narrowly captures the Senate in November.
Republicans are trying to put together all of the country's current problems -- illegal immigration, Islamic radicalism, the Ebola virus -- into one big anti-Obama package. The campaign may work. Why?
Like it or not, Guantanamo will be with us for a long time -- or, at the very least, until Obama marches with his successor down Pennsylvania Avenue during the 2016 inauguration.
Republicans have made questions of how safe we are -- from disease, terrorism or something unspoken and perhaps more ominous -- central in their attacks against Democrats. But this is nothing new.
Halloween, with its blood and gore, witches and werewolves, is a children's holiday because its horrors are fictional. Republicans have picked up on that theme for their Halloween fear-mongering. Fabricating characters and events to induce terror is just part of the GOP-Halloween scheme.
No one will ever perfect the game. Nor will wounded soldiers ever be exactly the same. Yet they are progressing, hole by hole.
As ISIS raced through Western Iraq, cutting through Kurdish villages and Sunni enclaves with rapid speed, the United States reacted with shock. How could the Iraqi Army give up resistance so rapidly? Why weren't locals fighting back?
With the closing of 13 abortion clinics in Texas, one out of six Texas women seeking an abortion will have to travel 150 miles or more. But one out of six? That's only a small fraction, according to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
Thanks to Matt Kemp and his beautiful, empathetic swing, we still have the Dodgers. At least for another day or two. Let's see what the Gods have in store for them in Game 3 in St. Louis Monday. Hold your breath, LA, it might be another lesson in... humility.
There he is, still fighting the Iraq War. Still insisting the Iraq War was the right thing to do. And still hiding behind his favorite cover, how "history will tell us" whether an action was right or wrong.
To see why Bush and so many executives look to Drucker's work for guidance, here are five of the best lessons from the man himself... lessons that may very well change the way you think about business, forever.
As Roberts desperately struggles to cling to office, he is trying to hoodwink the voters one more time. He never expected that the fact he doesn't have a Kansas home would be exposed. But he's been misleading about more than his address for years.
The storyline has long been that Hart challenged the press to follow him around and, in the post-Watergate spirit of enterprising investigative journalism, the press did just that, fearlessly uncovering, well, er, what?
