Intervention Fail: Back to Libya

The use of the U.S. military overseas seems to have become so commonplace that the Obama Administration can bomb a country with no Congressional input and very little media interest at all. Such was the case on Friday, when the U.S. military killed some 49 people in a bombing run near Tripoli, Libya.

Black Presidents Matter

President Obama is a radical socialist... as evident by none of his policies or anything he's ever said. He's a radical because his opponents call him a radical. They dubbed his signature market-based health care law a government takeover of health care. It's not. It's RomneyCare, the most milquetoast of all the Cares. Still, Congress has voted to repeal it more than 60 times.

Ever since George W. Bush went home to paint puppies, Republicans have generally lauded him as a tough commander-in-chief who "kept us safe." But Donald Trump is torching that party mantra.
