"Great nations need organizing principles, and 'Don't do stupid stuff' is not an organizing principle." - Hillary Clinton, The Atlantic, Aug. 10
The hawks (including me) were wrong about a lot, but some got one thing right. It's going to be a long war.
SAN DIEGO - The National Association of Hispanic Journalists is getting good at producing embarrassing headlines.
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is impatient. Congress won't act on immigration, he says, and therefore he will. The White House is coy as to exactly what the president will do. But the leaks point to an executive order essentially legalizing an enormous new class of illegal immigrants, perhaps up to 5 million people.
World War I started one century ago. Wait! Don't stop reading.
About one month after getting approved as foster parents, my husband and I got our first placement.
WASHINGTON - John Kerry is upset by heavy criticism from Israelis - left, right and center - of his recent cease-fire diplomacy.
"Sorry to email you late on a Friday, but I need your urgent support," Nancy Pelosi wrote me.
SAN DIEGO - Just because you're well-known doesn't mean you're well-informed.
WASHINGTON - The president's demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it's for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement.
"You are all a lost generation."
WASHINGTON - Israel accepts an Egyptian-proposed Gaza cease-fire; Hamas keeps firing.
"Here's the difference between us," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained on "Fox News Sunday." "We're using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they're using their civilians to protect their missiles."
All you need to do is look at the headlines out of Central America to see why tens of thousands of children are ending up at our border.
WASHINGTON - As is his wont, Barack President Obama is treating the border crisis - more than 50,000 unaccompanied children crossing illegally - as a public relations problem. Where to photo op and where not. He still hasn't enunciated a policy. He may not even have one.
WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is highly exercised about "inversion," the practice by which an American corporation acquires a foreign company and moves its headquarters out of the U.S. to benefit from lower tax rates abroad.
WASHINGTON - Baghdad called President Barack Obama's bluff and he came through. He had refused to provide air support to Iraqi government forces until the Iraqis got rid of their divisive sectarian prime minister.
Does the president think the world is a TV show?
I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaida and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons.
