    Members of the Congressional Black Caucus believe that President Obama's judicial nominees represent "an appalling lack of diversity," but the top White House spokesman dismissed that accusation. "The president's commitment here and the approach he takes is fairly clear," White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters when asked during the press briefing about the CBC's objection to his latest nominations within the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. "The president has had more African-American women confirmed to the federal court than any president in history," he noted, adding that he has appointed several black judges within the 11th Circuit,...

    The clock ticked a little impatiently, waiting for an answer. My answer. The interviewer’s question stuck in my mind, “Have you worked with diverse students before?” Looking past her wide set eyes, I focused on the picture of MLK behind her head. He stared down at me with knowing eyes. Brooding. Silent. Without reserve. I paused, finding the answer to her question. “Yes. I have worked with diverse students. I mean, I’ve been an English Language Development teacher for the past two years and all of my students have been Hispanic.” “I wouldn’t call that diverse.” She caught me with...

    As Republicans flock to to the right, Democrats scatter in all directionsRepublicans will end the year a more philosophically coherent right-wing party, writes columnist E.J. Dionne Jr. Democrats, on the other hand, will become more ideologically diverse. E.J. Dionne / Syndicated columnist Originally published Monday, May 17, 2010 at 1:42 PM WASHINGTON — This year's elections may exacerbate the difference between our two political parties, but not in the way most people are talking about. With incumbent Democratic senators under threat in two more primaries on Tuesday, the conventional view is that Republicans and Democrats will emerge from this election...

    DES MOINES, Iowa - Raising money for local Republicans even as he ponders his own political future, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said Monday that Republicans must increasingly be "a big party" that accepts divergent views. Giuliani said that broad-brush themes, like limited government, ought to define the Republican Party — not hot-button social issues like abortion and gay rights. "The major thing that we organize around as Republicans is government that puts more reliance on people than government," Giuliani said. "They (Democrats) tend to think of government solutions as most of the answers." Giuliani was in Iowa...

    WASHINGTON, April 25, 2006 – The makeup of Iraq's new unity government reflects the diversity of its society, President Bush said here today. "After months of patient negotiations, Iraqi leaders reached an agreement on a unity government," Bush said in a speech on energy policy. "This new leadership reflects the diversity of Iraq, and it reflects the will of the Iraqi people who defied the terrorists and killers and went to the polls last December." The Iraqi parliament April 22 elected seven high-ranking officials, including President Jalal Talabani, who then named Jawad al Maliki as prime minister-designate. The new government...

    WASHINGTON, March 9, 2006 – The conventional "Trident" missile program the Pentagon will ask Congress to fund is part of a larger strategy to better address diverse threats facing the United States and will further the country's defense goals, a Defense Department spokesman said here today. The Conventional Trident Modification program, which will cost about $503 million, was developed based on a 2001 comprehensive review of America's deterrence policy, the spokesman said, speaking on background. The study, he said, recognized that a deterrence strategy that relies primarily on nuclear weapons does not address the diverse threats the United States faces,...

    12/20/2005 - DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. (AFPN) -- While growing up, I loved decorating our Christmas tree and hanging the handmade pinecone wreath my mom, sister and I crafted each December. I also enjoyed lighting the Menorah and eating matzo ball soup at my grandparent’s house during Hanukkah. In the same way my family is comprised of different faiths, the Air Force is also a culturally diverse organization. Many Air Force members and their families will celebrate this holiday season in the United States, while others will be exposed to different holiday traditions while defending our freedom at a...

    Not all Democrats hate President Bush. While it is true that most of those present at the Democratic National Convention despise the president, there is a group who are actively supporting him, and they are growing in number. The most famous is Georgia Senator Zell Miller. Miller's fiery speech at the Republican National Convention made headlines across the nation. Some described it as over the top, but it spoke for many southern Democrats increasingly alienated by the far-left elitism of the national Democratic Party.
