    March 27, 2007 Op-Ed Contributor Prosecution Complex By NEAL KATYAL WashingtonIN 1999, when the Independent Counsel Act (the law that gave Kenneth Starr and Lawrence Walsh their mandates) was expiring, I was given the job of writing the new Justice Department rules for the appointment of a special prosecutor since the department would once again be responsible for overseeing such investigations. There was one hypothetical to worry about once the Independent Counsel Act lapsed: a case in which the attorney general herself and her deputy were suspected of possible misconduct. The rules were therefore written to vest the decision...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Democrats who are moving ahead with anti-war legislation are using troops as leverage to win domestic political battles, President Bush said Saturday. Democrats pledged to keep pushing until there is a change of course in Iraq. Bush said some lawmakers see a chance "to micromanage our military commanders, force a precipitous withdrawal from Iraq and spend billions on domestic projects that have nothing to do with the war on terror." In his weekly radio address, the president said, "Many in Congress say they support the troops, and I believe them. Now they have a chance to show...

    Jordan has charged three terrorists with plotting to carry out attacks, including an assassination of American President George W. Bush. Prosecutors said the terrorists also planned to strike American Danish embassies in Amman but apparently were not aware that Denmark has no offices in Jordan. The arrests were revealed Wednesday, three months after the terrorists were arrested the day before President Bush arrived in Amman for talks with King Abdullah.

    Tears rolled down US President George Bush's cheeks as he posthumously honoured a US marine hero, just 24 hours after ordering the controversial deployment of an extra 21,500 troops to Iraq. The unusual display of emotion by the commander-in-chief came during a ceremony for Corporal Jason Dunham at the White House. Corporal Dunham, 22, died from injuries after he jumped on a grenade and saved fellow members of his patrol in Iraq. Mr Bush presented his parents with the prestigious Medal of Honour, America's highest military award. Corporal Dunham saved at least two lives during a struggle with an insurgent...

    WASHINGTON - Bearing down on a plan for peace, the bipartisan panel studying the war in Iraq faces rising expectations, with the public restless for change and political leaders eager for some help. The Iraq Study Group will meet with President Bush and other White House officials Monday, a pivotal day of talks as the panel nears the end of its review. The group plans to announce its recommendations to Bush and Congress by the end of the year. Even before it is finished, the report is seen by many in Washington as having huge stakes.

    For the White House, the Congressional picnic last week seemed like the perfect setting to mend strained relations with Republican allies on Capitol Hill: President Bush and his advisers eating taquitos and Mexican confetti rice on the lawn of the White House with Republican Congressional leaders. But moments before Mr. Bush was to welcome his guests, Speaker J. Dennis Hastert told the president that House Republicans were effectively sidelining — and in the view of some Congressional aides probably killing — what had become Mr. Bush's signature domestic initiative of the year: an overhaul of the nation's immigration laws.

John Kerry said Sunday. The Massachusetts Democrat avoided explicit criticisms of the Bush administration during a wide-ranging speech on the global dynamics of terror.

"I was appalled that a nation as wealthy as ours was not able to respond as effectively as we should have and took blame for it," Bush said. "I mean, to the extent that the federal government was ineffective, I'm responsible. And I understand that. And now the question is how do we learn lessons from the response." Speaking in an interview with NBC Nightly News, Bush urged patience amid criticism that the reconstruction has slowed....

One senior British official said the U.S. negotiators shifted their position on the joint statement because the Bush administration was...

    IT HAS NOW BEEN TWO WEEKS since George W. Bush touched off a conservative civil war by nominating his White House counsel, Harriet Miers, to the Supreme Court. Miers, who has worked with Bush for over a decade, received the appointment based, we're assured, on the confidence the president has in his attorney. Part of the reaction to Miers's nomination comes from bewilderment as to why Bush selected Miers ahead of a talented field of well-known and well-respected conservative jurists, legal scholars, and practitioners. While backers of the Miers nomination point to her work as managing partner of a prominent...

She is going to withdraw her name from consideration before such hearings ever begin. You can take that to the bank. Why? Because, even though Democrats in the Senate seem more pleased with the choice of Miers than do Republicans, the questions that must be asked of the nominee for Sandra Day O'Connor's Supreme Court seat would be among the most embarrassing ever raised about her boss, President Bush.

    Washington is suddenly hung up on cronyism. According to a quick Lexis-Nexis search, roughly 1,000 stories have mentioned "cronyism" and "Bush" in the last two months alone. It was Michael Brown's putatively dismal performance at FEMA that got the anti-crony buzz going and Bush's selection of Harriet Miers that sent it into the stratosphere. But President Bush has been setting the tinder for quite some time by so successfully keeping a tight inner circle of loyalists in the White House. When he was reelected, Bush made the strategically wise decision of dispatching these loyalists to run important Cabinet agencies, in...

    President Bush denied Monday there was any racial component to people being left behind after Hurricane Katrina, despite suggestions from some critics that the response would have been quicker if so many of the victims hadn't been poor and black. "The storm didn't discriminate and neither will the recovery effort," Bush said. "The rescue efforts were comprehensive. The recovery will be comprehensive." Bush made the remarks to reporters at the end of a tour that took him through several flooded New Orleans neighborhoods. Occasionally, Bush had to duck to avoid low-hanging electrical wires and branches. It was Bush's first exposure...

    From the moment President Bush set his war policy after the 9-11 attacks, our country has been divided into two factions. The first faction supports the President because it believes he’s doing the right thing, while the second faction opposes the President because it believes he’s doing the wrong thing. Now a third faction has emerged, comprised of those who believe the President is doing the right thing – but that he isn’t doing it very well. Generally, those who belong to this third faction argue that the war is going badly because we aren’t fighting hard enough, or smart...

    In the hands of a world-class rhetorician — Lincoln, FDR, Reagan — George Bush's soaring Second Inaugural would be vividly understood as the world-class dissertation that it was. Subsequent readings (for the speech reads far better than his delivery of it) verify that rarely has a President — has anyone — expatiated with profounder eloquence on the ennobling cause of liberty. The President termed liberty "the honorable achievement of our Fathers" and now "the calling of our time." He postulated that "no one is fit to be a master, and no one deserves to be a slave." And so: It...

    Less than two weeks before Election Day, Kerry held a statistically insignificant 1 percentage-point lead in three of the key battleground states carried by Democrat Al Gore in 2000, was tied in a fourth, and trailed President Bush in three others. All were within the poll's margin of error

    Tennessee Democrats Compare Republicans To Special Olympics ChildrenBad picture political garbageOctober 12, 2004 – Democrats in a race for a state House seat in District 82, are circulating a flyer that shows a child with disabilities with President Bush’s face running in a track race. The headline says: “Voting for Bush Is Like Running In The Special Olympics: Even If You Win, You’re Still Retarded.”The flyer is being distributed by Democrat Craig Fitzhugh. His opponent, Dave Dahl has issued a call to Fitzhugh to stop distributing the flyer. According to Dahl, “Hard-ball politics is one thing and everyone expects tough...

    JB WILLIAMS.COM ^ | OCTOBER 5, 2004 | JB WILLIAMS How to support Kerry for President Written by JB Williams ©2004-10-05 In order to cast a vote for John Kerry, you first have to believe he is fit to be Commander-in-Chief. Now some don’t believe he is, namely 95% of all the decorated vets who served beside him in Vietnam, more than 70% of all living retired military personnel, and more than 80% of those serving in combat today. But what do they know? Besides, as the Democratic Party points out at every opportunity, what Right do these people (who spill their blood for our freedom) have to speak...

    October 3, 2004FRANK RICHNow on DVD: The Passion of the Bush ou can run but you can't hide: Oct. 5 will bring the perfect storm in this year's culture wars. It's on that strategically chosen date, four Tuesdays before the election, that the DVD of "Fahrenheit 9/11" will be released along with not one but two new Michael Moore books. It's also the release date of the equally self-effacing Ann Coulter's latest rant, of a new DVD documentary, "Horns and Halos," that revisits the Bush mystery year of 1972, and of an R.E.M. album, "Around the Sun," that gets...

    CRUSHKERRY.COM ^ | SEPTEMBER 27, 2004 | ADMIN Debate Tips from In the past week, both John Kerry and his octogenarian ideological grandpappy Jimmy Carter have hyped the coming presidential debates. This will be John Kerry’s time to shine, the thinking goes. Put this statuesque intellectualoid on stage with that babbling cowboy and we’re right back in this thing! Um, yes … we’ve heard that story before. Nonetheless it is true George W. Bush is not the best public speaker to hold the high office of President off the United States. (Though he is far more articulate than he is generally given credit for being.) And...

    Targeted, Truthful Ads Gutting Kerry Campaign Written by Chris Long Monday, September 27, 2004 George W. Bush spent the first months of the political campaigning season like a boxer in a huddle, covering up and weathering a barrage of blows from the upstart. The Kerry/DNC ads were a scattershot affair, alleging anything and everything, flitting from accusation to spectacular accusation, not unlike the flip-flopping candidate. Indeed, the Bush campaign seemed to obeying the military axiom of ‘concentration of forces’: gather your troops for decisive blows in the face of a scattered, approaching enemy. The hundreds of millions of dollars expended...

    How Biased is CBS and the Mainstream Press? Written by JB Williams ©2004-09-23 CBS has committed five years of effort and resources by senior producer (Mary Mapes) and her staff, to digging through 30 year old service records of George W. Bush in search of any evidence that would help them remove him from the oval office. When CBS failed to unearth any damning evidence concerning Bush’s Guard service after five years of in depth research, they became party to disseminating forged evidence needed to pursue their agenda. CBS claims that it was a BIG story worthy of pursuit, having...

    The Washington dispatch ^ | September 17, 2004 | Chad Allen
    FDR had it and so did Clinton. JFK’s caused us to land on the moon and Reagan’s led to a crushing victory in the 1984 election. George H.W. Bush once had it, though nowhere near the level of Reagan, and Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis, and Bob Dole never really had it. “It” is the ability to inspire. George W. Bush has it. John Kerry does not and that is why George W. Bush will win reelection, possibly handily, 46 days from now on November 2nd. Democrats are yearning for the days of eight years...

    Bush Air National Guard Documents Could Be Intentional Hit On Kerry Despite Dan Rather’s insistence on conducting what amounts to his last stand (he’ll be “urged” by CBS to pack it in after yet another scandal), the alleged Air national Guard documents are beginning to look like sucker bait that Rather took hook, line and sinker. And that sucker bait came from the left, it appears. The problem with the documents is that many aspects of the “facts” are too easy to disprove and may have intentionally been planted to implode Kerry’s credibility and campaign. Consider the fact that the...
