What could possibly go wrong?

Unbelievable. Attorney General Eric Holder said some detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may end up being released in the U.S. as the Obama administration works with foreign allies to resettle some of the prisoners.

Media news

Today, the Union-Tribune, my employer, announced that it had been sold to Platinum Equity and would be managed by the Black Press out of Canada. According to […]

Yesterday, White House spokesman Robert "I'm just like that Iraqi spokesman who lied during the Iraq War" Gibbs held forth on why John McCain was wrong to say the fundamentals of our economy are "strong," but the head of President Obama's council of economic advisers is right to say the fundamentals of our economy are […]

If I knew then...

Victor Davis Hanson's latest column asks a simple question: Would Obama won the November election if he'd told the American people he'd be doing what he's doing now?

Just like John McCain, minus the honesty

Over the past couple of days, President Barack Obama and his administration have come to embrace some positions GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain made just a few months ago.

“I don’t want to ban guns, just ill-defined assault weapons.”
