    Hey, it worked the last time, why not try it again? Aided by an uncurious Big Media, Team Obama is all set to roll out the same vague rhetoric that worked so well in 2008. You know, the "America faces huge challenges", "we must all pull together", "now is the time to put aside our differences", type of blather, bland cliches that never move beyond the level of a high-school essay? Why do they do this? Well, they're dumb. They don't really have an ideas of substance, so there's nothing else to talk about. And sadly, it works - some...

    THE VICE PRESIDENT: "In the decade prior to 9/11, we spent more than $2 trillion on national security. Yet we lost nearly 3,000 Americans at the hands of 19 men armed with box cutters and airline tickets. In the case of al Qaeda we are not dealing with large armies that we can track, or uniforms we can see, or men with territory of their own to defend. Their preferred tactic, which they boldly proclaim, is to slip into countries, blend in among the innocent, and kill without mercy and without restraint. They have intelligence and counterintelligence operations of their...

    Bush slams leak of terror finance story 10 minutes ago President Bush on Monday sharply condemned the disclosure of a secret anti-terrorism program that taps into an immense international database of confidential financial records. "The disclosure of this program is disgraceful," he said. "For people to leak that program and for a newspaper to publish it does great harm to the United States of America," Bush said. He said the disclosure of the program "makes it harder to win this war on terror." The program has been going on since shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. It was...

    By Elizabeth Pineau and Sophie Louet PARIS (Reuters) - President Jacques Chirac on Sunday vowed to restore order in France after riots in Paris spread across the country and began to unnerve his European neighbours. "The Republic is quite determined, by definition, to be stronger than those who want to sow violence or fear," Chirac said after a special domestic security council met to respond to the latest violence in which 1,300 vehicles went up in flames. "The law must have the last word," Chirac said in his first public comments since the riots started in the poor suburbs, noting...

    VIENNA (Reuters) - France, Britain and Germany have told Iran they will not settle for anything less than an end to sensitive nuclear processes key to the production of atomic bombs, according to a confidential EU document. Iran has temporarily frozen its enrichment program, a process of purifying uranium for use as fuel in nuclear power plants or weapons, but insists that atomic fuel production is a sovereign right it will never abandon. The document, which summarizes this month's talks between the European Union's "big three" -- the EU3 -- and Iran, said Tehran would only allow increased inspections by...

    "John Kerry's campaign rhetoric is at odds with the reality of his record on health care. His campaign promises would shift the cost of health care to taxpayers and increase red tape. John Kerry has consistently opposed the President’s efforts to lower health care costs by voting against medical malpractice reform and the Medicare Reform and Prescription Drug Bill." - Steve Schmidt, Bush-Cheney '04 Spokesman Kerry Would Shift Existing Costs To Taxpayers Kerry's Claim: "First, Kerry said his plan will control costs by giving relief to businesses and passing savings on to workers. This will save employees up to...
