    Former President George H.W. Bush was in stable condition late Wednesday after breaking a bone in his neck in a fall at his Maine home, his spokesman said. "He is fine -- but he'll be in a neck brace," Spokesman Jim McGrath tweeted about the 41st president.

    We learned this week that the Secret Service dawdled for an entire year before fixing a broken security system at the home of former President George H. W. Bush. The Secret Service itself is looking pretty broken these days. A few weeks ago, two drunken agents returning from a party drove right through an active bomb investigation outside the White House. They didn't notice that their colleagues were examining a suspicious package. In 2012, a number of agents were found to have engaged prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, during a presidential trip. At least one of the prostitutes had links to...

    We didn’t really notice the political ineptness of George H.W. Bush. He ran with the great Ronald Reagan who could have picked a name from the phone book as his running mate and won both times. Bush the elder brought little to the ticket as he knew little about politics. When he ran on his own and picked Dan Quayle to run with he proved that point. George W. Bush was different. He had been Governor of Texas and knew things about politics his father never learned. He presented himself to us as a solid Texas style conservative at first...

    New York Daily News ^ | October 20, 2014 | Leslie Larson
    President George H.W. Bush is displeased that Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn is using his picture in ads for her Senate campaign. Nunn, who led Bush’s Points of Light Foundation until 2013, is touting her past Bush ties to counter claims by her Republican opponent, David Perdue, that Nunn is an Obama follower. In a new campaign ad, “Familiar,” Nunn highlights her former relationship with Bush, showing off a 2009 picture with the former President, as proof that she is able to work with Republicans and Democrats. But George H.W. Bush officially endorsed Perdue in September and is upset that Nunn...

    As a nervous nation watches the Obama administration’s response to the Ebola crisis, many Americans have concluded that the country’s top health officials seem more concerned with stopping the spread of panic than stopping the spread of the virus. But Americans’ fear is only growing, and one reason is that too few people believe what the president of the United States says anymore. A recent poll asked Americans this question: “How often does Barack Obama lie to the country on important matters?” Not about sex. Not about whether he really likes baseball. Not whether he still cadges an occasional cigarette...

    "Do you have a strategy now, Mr. President?" asked the cover of the Daily News next to a photo of the second American journalist to be beheaded by the terrorist group ISIS. The impulse to "do something" to counter such evil is strong. But why do we assume that government doing something is always an improvement over government doing nothing? In domestic policy, encouraging government to act leads to nonsense like the "stimulus spending" that created boondoggles such as Cash for Clunkers. Our foreign policy record isn't much better, despite big successes such as stopping Hitler. Consider the unintended consequences...

    A federal appeals court Tuesday declared unconstitutional a law allowing Americans born in Jerusalem to list Israel as their birthplace on their U.S. passports, the latest ruling in a case that stretches back a decade. … The case was brought by parents of an American boy named Menachem Zivotofsky, who was born in a Jerusalem hospital soon after the law was passed. The parents wanted to list Israel as his birthplace, but the U.S. has refused to recognize any nation's sovereignty over Jerusalem since Israel’s creation in 1948—so the boy’s U.S. passport only says “Jerusalem” as his birthplace.

As the 16-year-old closed in, her mother, Vicki, opened the cabin door and stood behind it, holding Sara Weaver's 10-month-old sister in her arms. Just then, a sniper's bullet struck her mother in the head, killing her.

Shamir himself was "really hard-line," in Baker's view. However, the diplomat said, Shamir's relationship with President George H. W. Bush got off to a bad start when Bush felt Shamir had misled him regarding settlement in Judea and Samaria (Yehuda and Shomron). An interview with Baker last year gives fascinating insights into the dynamics that led to the Madrid Conference in 1991 and the Oslo Accords in 1993. The loan guarantee request came...

    George W. Bush is as hard to find in his father's office, as he is in the 2012 presidential contest. The 43rd president appears in a gold-framed picture tucked into a far corner of the room, partially hidden by a Texas flag and a cabinet door. The placement — whether intentional or not — is a reminder of the Republican presidential campaign and the lengths to which Romney and his rivals have tried to marginalize the two-term president.

    he election of George H.W. Bush in 1988 guaranteed some stability in dealing with major foreign policy issues on the horizon. The Reagan administration’s attempts to drown the communist world with big ideas and a massive defense spending increase set the table for the fall of Soviet Russia in the early 1990s. The Bush administration oversaw the defeat of communism and ushered the new Russian state, led by Mikhael Gorbachev, into a capitalist era. This was the major global change that occurred at this point but Bush and his advisors were more integral to other conflicts throughout the world.

    Poppy Gets Advanced Degree Malcolm A. Kline, January 22, 2010 Believe it or not, a Republican president may be benefiting from some revisionist history. Indeed, the academic literature on George Herbert Walker Bush, although brief, like his presidency, is mostly, so far, laudatory. “That the United States avoided another great power conflict from 1945-1992 is a testament to the stewardship of Presidents from Truman through George H. W. Bush,” Berkeley law professor John Yoo writes in Crisis and Command: A History of Executive Power from George Washington to George W. Bush. “Nine American Presidents from different parties, over half a...

    Perhaps the 41st president still has it in him - at least when it comes to the left crying foul about the so-called uncivil political discourse on right, but being equally if not worse on the left, particularly on MSNBC, the so-called "Place for Politics." In an interview on Oct. 16 with CBS Radio, former President George H.W. Bush took a very critical tact with MSNBC hosts Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow, deeming them "a couple of sick puppies." (via MSNBC's Oct. 16 "The Rachel Maddow Show") "I don't like it," Bush said. "I think the cables have a lot...

    Here goes: This presidential candidate talks pro-life, but has a mixed record on abortion, including passing legislation as governor removing restrictions on abortion. In addition, the person he wants as VP is outspoken in his support of pro-choice, warning against candidates who would throw women back into back alley clinics. He talks about Christian faith, but also openly admits he very rarely goes to church. He has been a supporter of 2nd amendment rights, but also openly endorsed the Brady Bill. He wants to balance the budget partly by tax cuts, but mostly by cutting spending back to around 19%...
