  • Could U.S. military gains in Iraq outlast Bush? (Critics sourly admit Bush wins)

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - With an intensifying White House race drawing attention to his legacy, President George W. Bush could leave office without the baggage of complete failure in Iraq some analysts say. American success at quelling sectarian and insurgent violence has raised hopes that the relatively calmer conditions of the past few months in Iraq might last into early 2009, when the next U.S. president takes over. "The overall prediction has to be that George Bush will escape this without an obviously visible abject failure. It may become that again over time. But right now, it looks like Bush will...

    AP ^ | November 17, 2005
    Senator John Kerry says losing last year's election hasn't soured him on wanting to be president. Asked if he wanted to run again in 2008, Kerry says it's too early to say. But he added: "Would I like to be president? Yes, obviously." Kerry made the comments today on C-N-N. The senator says he won't base his future presidential ambitions on whether other Democrats like Hillary Clinton join the race. During the interview, Kerry also said his vote authorizing President Bush to use military force was a mistake. He says he'd change his vote knowing what he does today.

    Judicial nominee deserves some respectMy sister, Sharon, seldom talks about politics but I remember a conversation she had with my eldest niece, Robin, back in 1972. I said I was voting for George McGovern. My sister surprised me by saying she preferred the incumbent, Richard Nixon. Robin, all of 8, asked why. Because if McGovern is elected you'll have to go to school on Saturday. I laughed then and I laugh now. One explains politics to an 8-year-old in a manner she can understand. Now we come to this business of replacing Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court....

    LA Times ^ | March 18, 2005 | Ronald Brownstein
    Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.), continuing his sharp attacks on the man who beat him in last year's White House race, on Thursday denounced President Bush's budget and his recent nominations of leading conservatives to two high-profile foreign policy posts. The budget Bush submitted to Congress failed to uphold basic values of "honesty, opportunity and responsibility," Kerry told the Center on National Policy, a Democratic think tank. In response to a question, Kerry charged that Bush's nomination of Undersecretary of State John R. Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations and Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz as president of...

    It doesn't take psychoanalysis to figure out what Dan Rather's motivations were; the legal system has a process for recognizing bias.THE INDEPENDENT REVIEW PANEL which investigated CBS News's faked memos found no basis to accuse Dan Rather or Mary Mapes of political bias in connection with their roles in the offending 60 Minutes story about President Bush's National Guard service. In its report the Panel characterized the very question of whether a political agenda could play a role as "subjective" and "difficult." And panelist Louis Boccardi later explained that "bias is a hard thing to prove." Yet questions about motivation...

    I wasn't going to address this and then I thought "what the heck?" Several days before Christmas -- and please note, I said "Christmas" and not "the holiday season" and that alone will anger the liberals -- a collection of obscure groups and individuals made a desperate plea for attention. They launched a campaign to pressure advertisers of this station because of this two-minute segment, The Point. Gasp! I've got opinion in my opinion segment. And not only that, but it presents only one point-of-view. (Segment on tape - scene from "Casablanca") Rick: "How can you close me up? On...

    Dear Members of the U.S. Senate, Welcome back! The 109th session of Congress has just begun. I'm watching you on C-SPAN right now and you all look so snap-happy and clean-faced. It's like the first day of school all over again, isn't it? I have a favor to ask of you. Something isn't right with the vote from Ohio. Seems a lot of people didn't get to vote. And those who did, thousands of theirs weren't counted. Does that seem right to you? I'm just asking. Forget about partisan politics for a moment and ask yourself if there is a...

    Spoke to a veteran Republican consultant who’s been around politics a lot longer than I have this morning. He’s much cheerier about Bush’s performance in the debate than I am, and so much more optimistic than my NRO colleagues that they would probably want to test him for Prozac. He points to the instant poll results and explains that for all of Kerry’s more concise language and illustrative anecdotes, Kerry failed to do what he needed to do - boost his numbers on likeability, trust, toughness, etc. Kathryn posted these numbers in the Corner: ***Demonstrated he is tough enough for...
