    Below is a list of President Bush's pro-life efforts and accomplishments in regard to protecting children in the womb and promoting the sanctity of life.  I include some accomplishments in other areas but mostly focus on his pro-life record. This list is by no means comprehensive.  When considering other issues much more could be added to the list of positive things that Bush has done since he has been in office. I started to compile this list shortly after the President was reinaugurated after hearing from many, who consider themselves pro-life, that Bush was not really pro-life. I disagreed and...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq, Aug 28, 2003 (AP WorldStream via COMTEX) -- A Baghdad mother and father, to show their thanks to U.S. President George W. Bush for the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, have named their son after the American leader. Had the couple had twin boys, they say, the would have named them George Bush and Tony Blair. The new George Bush - probably the only one in Baghdad - was born six weeks ago to Nadia Jergis Mohammed, 34, and her husband Abdul Kader Faris, 41. "I tell you all Iraqis hated Saddam's regime.

Here are some approval numbers of other presidents on the eve of their respective elections:   President Polling Date(s) Approval Rating B.J. Clinton 10/26-29/1996 54 George H.W.

As citizens of this nation, NASA employees grieve with our neighbors, friends and relatives as we face the one year anniversary of September 11.

The US Senate also has the duty to give their advise and consent on Judicial nominees. There is a Judicial Emergency in that over 20% of the Federal Bench is vacant.  The backlog of cases denies justice to everyone with cases before the Federal bench.

Despite spending most of their time fretting over whether Tony sniffs George's ass too much or whether Tony gives it to Cherie too much or whether Charles or Wills will be the next Queen of England, they still have time to focus on the absurd. According to the BBC, a British bookmaker is giving 6-1 to odds that actor Michael Douglas will one day become President of the United States. You see Michael, like most self-important, self-deluded, self-gratifying, liberal Hollywood types, fancies himself more than a guy who makes a living kissing Glenn...

    Bush believes the war on terrorism has a spiritual dimension. George Bush took a lot of criticism when in a Republican primary debate in Iowa — two years and ages ago — he said that his favorite political philosopher was Jesus Christ. Liberals jumped on him for a supposedly nascent violation of the separation of church and state. Even some conservatives knocked him for such an unreflective answer and one that had nothing to do with public life. I thought the critics were over-wrought, but shared some of the worries about Bush personalizing everything. Only now do I realize how ...

    As President Bush prepares for his State of the Union address next week, I am preparing myself for a night of media elites discussing how much the president has "grown" since setting up house on Pennsylvania Avenue. They have discussed his "growing" spurt countless times since Sept. 11, and I feel certain the subject will surface again during the traditional year-opening televised address Tuesday. Indeed, our president appears larger than life these days. His approval numbers are through the roof, and his leadership in recent months has left all of us a little breathless. But any claims of "growth" ...

    GEORGE BUSH Jr might have as his motto: never knowingly overestimated. It is a principle that has served him well during his first year in office. Rarely has a leader of the Western world started out with lower expectations among opinion formers; rarely have the latter been proved wrong so thoroughly and so soon. Taking Ronald Reagan as his model, rather than his own father, Bush the younger has cultivated an unpretentious image which has deceived many of America's enemies. Yet the Left-liberal caricature of President Bush as a bumbling idiot suited him just fine. His shrewd and energetic pursuit ...
