    WASHINGTON (AP) — The world's top finance officials expressed confidence Saturday that the global economy finally has turned the corner to stronger growth. This time, they may be right. Despite challenges that include market jitters about the Federal Reserve's bond-buying slowdown and global tensions over Ukraine, policymakers said they believe there is a foundation for sustained growth that can provide jobs for the millions of people still looking for work five years after the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s. "Creating a more dynamic, sustainable, balanced and job-rich global economy remains our paramount collective goal," the policy-setting...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Vice President Joe Biden has famously distilled President Barack Obama's argument for re-election to a simple phrase: "Osama Bin Laden is dead, and General Motors is alive." On Thursday evening, the scrappy former senator delighted Democrats gathered at their national convention in Charlotte with a long-form version of that slogan. Speaking from his "ringside seat" to Obama's struggles since January 2009, Biden praised the president he has watched at work and told Americans worried about the still-sputtering economy that "America has turned the corner." "Yes, the work of recovery is not yet complete, but we are on our way,"...

    Jay Carney holds the position of White House press secretary — a job considered by many to be one of the hardest and most demanding in any administration. It has been held by such illustrious figures as Dana Perino, Ari Fleischer, Dee Dee Myers and, back in President Bill Clinton’s day, one George Robert Stephanopoulos. As press secretary, the job is to be an administration’s public face, and words must be chosen carefully, because the slightest misstep can come back to haunt both the representative and the administration. So, to help out during this election season, The Daily Caller will...

    TAMPA - You may never have heard of Peggy Land, unless you're a Tampa Democratic political insider. She's a proverbial little old lady in tennis shoes, but along with her late husband John, she has also been a faithful Democratic political donor - some $20,000 to the party and its candidates over the last decade or so, plus more from fundraisers in their home, and none to Republicans. So who is Land backing in the U.S. Senate race?

  • Anbar Situation Has ‘Turned the Corner,’ U.S. General Says

    WASHINGTON, July 20, 2007 – The security situation in Anbar province has greatly improved in recent months, thanks to additional U.S. troops provided by the surge and the growing presence of trained and vetted Iraqi soldiers and police, a senior U.S. military officer said today. (Video) Statistics show that daily insurgent-generated violence, as measured by small-arms, mortar and improvised-explosive-device attacks, has decreased in Anbar since this time last year, Marine Maj. Gen. Walter E. Gaskin, commanding general of Multinational Force West, told Pentagon reporters during a satellite-carried news conference. “I can report that the future of the province looks...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has said North Korea should not be driven into a corner if the world wants to rein in its nuclear weapons programme. He said some negotiators "failed to find the right tone" with the country. He was speaking in a live TV phone-in with Russians nationwide, broadcast on TV and radio. He said he would not try to run for office again when his term ends in 2008, but said he would try to continue to influence political affairs. On North Korea, Mr Putin said a solution could be found "with goodwill". "You must never push...

Sheppick We enjoyed ourselves immensely that this special Annual Greene County event, which has been taking place here in Pennsylvania since 1874. The day was cloudy with the threat of rain - but it never did - at least in Waynesburg, PA, during the Rain Day festivities.  The VFTT - OSC was blessed with a nice corner space and the town officials were not in any way non-supportive of...

    THE American secretary of state Condoleezza Rice has offered to sit down in person with Iranian officials if it will help Iran to suspend its nuclear enrichment work. Holding out the prospect of the highest level face-to-face contact since the 1979 Islamic revolution which overthrew the Shah, she said: “I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the ministers meet at some point.” Charles Kupchan, an expert on Iran at the Council on Foreign Relations, said: “It’s a big deal for the secretary of state to say we’ll talk to you. There has been a big changing of the guard in...

Race was passing the time debating some of the local lefies, confused in mind and gender, while waiting for troops to show up, he was in fine form.

    It’s strange to say that a president doesn’t get enough attention — that his speeches and arguments are ignored. But I think this may be true of GWB. Over and over, he speaks clearly about the War on Terror, and other matters, and month after month, people say, “Why isn’t the president saying anything? Why doesn’t he speak out? Has he no defense of his policies?” Problem is, Bush can give a speech to a few hundred people, and the rest of the world takes little notice (or isn’t given very much). Poor president, I’m saying: Doesn’t have a big...

    At his press conference last Thursday, President Bush added a new “progressive indexing” proposal to his Social Security reform plan that not only largely resolves the program’s imminent insolvency without raising payroll taxes, but also exposes an almost unconscionable hypocrisy in the Democrats’ position on this issue. At odds for months in this debate has been how future payments to recipients are calculated. Currently, increases are tied to annual wage gains of the workforce. However, it has been argued that if they were indexed to the growth of inflation, or “prices” -- which have typically been much lower than changes...

    "The creation of the United States of America is the central event of the past four hundred years." Thus does Walter A. McDougall of the University of Pennsylvania begin the first volume of his acclaimed new American history, Freedom Just Around the Corner (HarperCollins).Not surprisingly, this central event has evoked a wide range of opinions. Tens of millions of immigrants have voted with their feet to slough off prior allegiances and join the boisterous experiment that makes "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" its official goal.The result has been an astounding success. "We dominate every field of human endeavor...

    Kerry: GOP 'turned the corner' going wrong way By Katharine Q. Seelye The New York Times WASHINGTON -- All week long, President George W. Bush traveled the country, cheerfully telling audiences that "we've turned the corner" on the economy. But on Friday, in the face of the government's paltry new numbers on job growth, the president's new slogan suddenly sounded premature at best. By now, Republicans had hoped that the early indications this year that the economy was indeed turning the corner would have allowed them to neutralize, or even turn to their advantage, the issue that John Kerry had...

    On March 22nd, Don Cherry of CBC's Hockey Night in Canada stood up for America and criticized the Canadian government for its anti-war, anti-American stance. Now the CBC website has yanked the March 22nd Real Video link from its Don Cherry Coach's Corner homepage. I had viewed the entire 7-minute clip just the other night, but now it's the ONLY video clip that is missing from the entire hockey season's archives! This comes after Cherry delivered more harsh criticism of the Canadian government and anti-war "kooks" in a recent U.S. radio interview.
