After the announcement late Sunday night by President Obama that we finally found and killed Osama bin Laden, people poured out into the streets to celebrate. Even the most die-hard partisans, like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, gave credit to Obama and his administration, calling his actions a “gutsy move.” As with any big event […]

“If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” – Isaac Newton It seems like only yesterday when crowds filled streets across America waiving hand-scripted signs vowing they would “Never Forget” the atrocities wielded against America by al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden on September 11, 2001. With American […]

Making Sense by Michael Reagan They got him. Put a couple of slugs in his face. Then they dumped his body in the sea — something for the fish, which don’t much care what they eat, to feed on. No matter how you look at it, this was a masterful stroke by a group of […]

Is the President of the United States acting uppity? Maybe that’s it. Maybe in the minds of Barack Obama’s bigoted opponents it’s one thing to elect a black guy, to have him break the barrier and take a seat in the front of the bus – but it’s quite another thing if he carries on […]

Cartoonists have been gunning for the reclusive terrorist for years, and have drawn many, many cartoons about him. Check out some of the best cartoons drawn […]

As we speak, vanquished Birther […]

The argument that President Obama is being treated unfairly or differently than previous presidents when it comes to the voluntary disclosure of non-public records is absurd.  This false narrative is simply an attempt to distract from the indisputable fact that the President and his team handled this entire sorry episode like a pack of amateurs, […]

Wednesday night was the most riveting reality TV I’ve seen in years. Talk about genuine breaking news. I watched the Weather Channel’s coverage of the Tuscaloosa tornado and the 163 others like it that raked 13 states in the South. The weathercasters were visibly shaken by the radar images. They knew it was a deadly […]
