Mission Accomplished

Irrespective of his political intentions when he signaled his refusal to invite President Donald Trump to speak in the parliament
Hillary Clinton worked for party unity, but only after a very hard-fought and contentious primary season. I offer these reminders up, because now she finds herself in the opposite role. And it seems like everyone's memory has gone fuzzy when recalling the final two months of the 2008 race.
It was a large banner and its message was clear. It read: "Mission Accomplished," and no, I don't mean the classic banner President George W. Bush used to proudly proclaim that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended." I'm actually referring to September 1982.
But civilian deaths in Iraq are a different story. Last year they reached the third-highest total of any year since 2003
Just what kind of blowback the Saudis will experience from their rash decision to strike in Yemen is impossible to know, but it's not hard to guess that, as with Washington's drive through "the gates of hell" in Iraq in 2003, it's unlikely to be whatever that country's rulers are now imagining.
The mainstream media cover bits and pieces of the destruction as pumped-up entertainment, with the Iraqis and everyone else trapped in the planet's various International Hot Spots remaining abstractions and curiosities. This is journalistic malfeasance of the highest order.
Perhaps instead of finding every possible way to tear the system down conservatives can offer some solutions -- any solutions -- that could make the ACA a law that at least 51 percent of Americans could be proud of.
This conservative, austere budget has been rejected for months. Their goal is not really about defunding ObamaCare. Their goal was to force their extreme agenda onto the American people.
"GALEX is a remarkable accomplishment," Jeff Hayes, NASA's GALEX program executive in Washington, D.C., said in a statement
"The mission was planned for a duration of three-and-a-half years," Schmidt said. "We have been operating for four years
"My fellow Americans, major combat operations in Iraq have ended," he said. "In the battle of Iraq, the United States and
The aircraft carrier stunt was a Karl Rove P.R. production designed to provide images for Bush's 2004 re-election campaign.
At first glance, a George W. Bush Presidential Library might seem like an oxymoron -- think, the Sarah H. Palin Institute for International Studies.
We can't wait to see if Colbert actually visits the Bush library, or if they still hold the 2006 Correspondents' Dinner against
2011-11-29-20111107bothsidesnow.jpgIf a candidate's slogan is "Believe in America," shouldn't he invest in America? And will GOP governors really turn down 100 percent funding to cover free riders at hospitals?
Cities nationwide are using tactics to battle the encroachment of homelessness on their streets and public spaces.
Just because you can take things over the top -- and the Obama administration's made-for-tv events today are just that -- it doesn't mean that you should. Barack Obama promised to be a new and different kind of politician. If any further proof was needed that he isn't, this week -- with Bill Clinton's testimonial to his courage under fire, and with unsubtle attacks on Romney's manhood, not to mention common sense -- should finally be enough. But, in another sense, Obama is a new and different kind of politician. He's a Democrat executing the GOP media playbook better than Bush did.
When it came to rolling out a new 10-year plan for the future of the U.S. military, the leaks to the media began early and the message was clear. One man is in charge of your future safety and security. His name is Barack Obama. And -- not to worry -- he has things in hand.
Every current Republican gripe on the Iraq withdrawal boils down to a monumental refusal to face the reality of a full-fledged Iraqi democracy.
