2011-11-29-20111107bothsidesnow.jpg One week, two big talks from our Educator-in-Chief: "I'm Trayvon" and "Middle-Out vs. Trickle-Down" economics. Despite Carlos Danger and Baby George, can Obama's reframing change minds long-term?

2011-11-29-20111107bothsidesnow.jpg Talk about 'Beyond Right & Left' -- when Franken-Rove clash with Scahill-Beck over the NSA program, knee-jerkers are confused. So Huffington & Matalin debate domestic snooping not by Hoover against protestors in the '60s but by Obama after 9/11 and Boston. Is Snowden an Ellsberg or Manning?

HuffPost Radio

2011-11-29-20111107bothsidesnow.jpgShow trials and screw-ups do not make for true "scandals." But what about GOP efforts to in effect deny the original intent of Article II when it comes to Obama's constitutional power to name judges? Spitzer & Matalin debate this as well as the NSA and Rice-Power appointments.

A Pathological Moral Environment

If this deadly dynamic isn't solved -- if the biggest banks aren't broken up, if the Department of Justice doesn't start prosecuting crime in the financial sector -- our country will in the not too distant future see a financial crisis far worse than in 2008.

Presidents Bush and Obama, and the Faith Divide

Matthew Dowd | Posted 07.03.2013 | Politics
Matthew Dowd

Both men speak of God and the Bible and faith in many of their speeches and conversations. And both men are self-professed Christians, but for some reason many doubt the faith and commitment of President Obama while never doubting the same of President Bush. Why is that?

Curses: Motherly Approval of the President

Jana Novak | Posted 06.29.2013 | Politics
Jana Novak

This week, the new George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum will be opening to the public. That's all well and good, and certainly wonderfully high-brow. It also served to remind me of a wonderfully "low-brow" personal story I have about President Bush and my mother.

As a member of the National Council on the Arts, the advisory board to the National Endowment for the Arts, I was pleased to read about the recent unveiling of the Rosa Parks statue in the U.S. Capitol Building's National Statuary Hall.

Points of Light and the Pursuit of Happiness

Michelle Nunn

When I first met President George H. W. Bush six years ago, I was struck by three things: his deeply felt sense that a meaningful life must include service to others, his gracious humility and the fact that he ordered dessert at lunch and encouraged all present to do the same.

The Iraq Invasion 10 Years Later: A Wrong War

Richard N. Haass | Posted 05.15.2013 | Politics
Richard N. Haass

It was not a war that needed to be started at the time. Our interests were less than vital and we had alternatives, but I believe the president decided to go to war not so much because of the belief that the Iraqis possessed weapons of mass destruction, but more for three other reasons.

President Hugo Chavez's death, while not unexpected, brings an uncertain future to a country that he ruled with an iron fist. It also may present a great opportunity for American diplomacy in Venezuela and Latin America.

President Obama emphasized we need to "turn the page" on the abuses committed under the Bush administration. But as Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy so aptly states, "We can't turn the page unless we first read the page."

The Chuck Hagel Bombshell

Sarwar Kashmeri | Posted 04.20.2013 | Politics
Sarwar Kashmeri

It is the death throes of the neoconservatives' hold on United States foreign policy that makes the confirmation of Hagel and the installation of the Biden-Kerry-Hagel team so critically important for the United States and the world.

Banks Are Holding Us Hostage

If we can't trust banks to run a foreclosure review process with some amount of precision, how in the heck do we expect them to run the world's financial systems and not take us for a deep dive again?

There may be a Republican who can help alleviate the dysfunction that has gripped Washington, but he's not in John Boehner's caucus. He's the one who last year predicted the mess we're facing to begin with: President George W. Bush.
