Just as has been the case every time nuclear negotiations between Iran and the West break down without agreement on fundamental issues, Supreme Iranian leader Khameini resumes lambasting the U.S. and Israel, and conservatives in the Iranian government rejoice.
The media was wrong, and the White House was right. Still, many of us in the media won't admit it. Therefore, I'd like to apologize to you. We should probably make a better effort to understand policy, before we attempt to comment on it. And we should probably also admit, once and for all, that the President was born in America.
Our global climate is warming due to the unprecedented amounts of carbon dioxide we are emitting through the combustion of fossil fuels.
The GOP pushes Obama's buttons. Obama -- finally! -- pushes back.
