Meet Tom Foley, accused union buster

One thing clear about Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley, who surprisingly chastised Dan Malloy in the first debate of the race for living in the state-owned governor's mansion, is that he is a mansion kind of guy. We don't know how much money Tom Foley has, but it's a lot.

Bubba Slams McConnell Where It Hurts

Hillary and Bill Clinton's visit to Iowa this weekend for the Harkin Steak Fry generated plenty of headlines, but its political impact may end up being bigger in Kentucky than in the Hawkeye State. That's because the most memorable moment of the steak fry wasn't Hillary's 2016 patter or the effort to boost Bruce Braley , the Democratic Senate candidate in Iowa.

ISIS Has Put Rand Paul In A Very Difficult Position

Sen. Rand Paul has emerged as a leading potential 2016 presidential candidate after years building a brand as a conservative with a libertarian bent who often breaks from his fellow Republicans to criticize foreign military action. However, the rise of the jihadist group Islamic State has left Paul scrambling to simultaneously express support for military action against the group while also trying to maintain his libertarian credentials and criticize President Barack Obama, who has launched strikes on ISIS.

Brandis goes Left Bank in his search for terror hype

As the government's resident philosopher-prince, Attorney-General George Brandis is fond of words, particularly words from outside the English language. Being a lawyer, he likes to draw upon one of the techniques the legal profession uses to pretend it isn't just another self-interested industry, by quoting Latinisms and terms usually only heard in the rarefied confines of the courtroom, like "gravamen".

Ex-WH Staffer: Fire Teacher for Bush-Hitler Assignment

The Washington, D.C. public school teacher who instructed a sixth-grade class to write a paper comparing President George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler should be fired immediately, a Bush White House staffer told Newsmax TV on Monday. "I don't care if you're Republican, Democrat - whoever you are, comparing a U.S. president to Adolf Hitler is unacceptable, and that teacher needs to go now," Bradley Blakeman, a Georgetown University professor of politics and public policy, told "MidPoint" host Ed Berliner.

Leonard Pitts Jr: Wondering 'what if' as U.S. forces head back to the Middle East

Two letters long, it is arguably the most fruitless word in the English language, an evocation of paths not taken, possibilities foreclosed, regrets stacked high -- and it lies like a pall of smoke over President Barack Obama's Wednesday-night announcement that this country is returning to war, albeit with air strikes only, in a place we just left behind in 2011 after spending almost nine years, more than $1 trillion and 4,425 lives.

Fighting ISIS and beyond

If President Barack Obama manages to destroy the Islamic State terrorist organization through an international coalition, the odds are he will make the same mistake committed by his predecessor, former President George W. Bush. Declaring "mission accomplished" after a few battlefield victories against ISIS, the inaccurate acronym by which the Islamic State usually is called, would be a terrible mistake.

With ISIS, we face a real war, but we don't want to fight it ourselves

After years of fighting a corrupt war in Iraq, the U.S. is faced with a serious enemy in ISIS, but now we're standing on the sidelines and hoping our allies will step up to put troops on the ground. A U.S. Marine watches a statue of Saddam Hussein being toppled in Firdaus Square in downtown Baghdad in a April 9, 2003, file photo that seemed to capture a glorious moment - but the Iraq War led us to the mess we're in now.

Media, Politicians should stop Letting ISIL Manipulate them

Ever since George W. Bush invaded Iraq and created the circumstances under which al-Qaeda could take root and flourish there from 2003 forward, al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia has taken captives and has beheaded them on film. It was doing this in 2004 These acts of public brutality against a helpless individual are intended in part to announce that despite their military superiority, Westerners are not 10 feet tall and can be cut down to size.
