    MS. RADDATZ: Let’s move to another war, the civil war in Syria, where there are estimates that -- estimates that more than 25,000, 30,000 people have now been killed. In March of last year, President Obama explained the military action taken in Libya by saying it was in the national interest to go in and prevent further massacres from occurring there. So why doesn’t the same logic apply in Syria? Vice President Biden. VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: It’s a different country. It’s a different country. It is five times as large geographically. It has one-fifth the population that is Libya, one-fifth...

    DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — At odds early and often, Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan squabbled over the economy, taxes, Medicare and more Thursday night in a contentious, interruption-filled debate. "That is a bunch of malarkey," the vice president retorted after a particularly tough Ryan attack on the administration's foreign policy. "I know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground, but I think people would be better served if we don't interrupt each other," Ryan said later to his rival, referring to Democratic pressure on Biden to make up for President Barack Obama's listless performance...

    I understand Barack Obama. It is not always easy, but I do. I can even relate to him. Of course, we weren't supposed to need to. He was supposed to be above that. He was never supposed to be an everyman, and never pretended to be. He transcended beer tests, barbecue tests, and the rest — the tests of whether he was "likable" enough as a politician. It didn't matter whether I wanted to have a beer with him or not, and nobody asked. He was Barack Obama. What he represented was much larger than any individual, even himself. It...

    Here is video of President Obama speaking this afternoon to push his Health Care Reform Bill that would bring socialized medicine to America. Obama said that those who are "betting against Health Care" are "mistaken." Obama claims that two-thirds of the cost of Government Health Care will come from savings in the government not having to make payments to insurance companies. The other one-third he said would have to be found by some solution arrived at by Congress (that would be TAXES!). Obama was trying to prop up Democrats who are wavering as the weekend approaches. He wants both the...

  • Barbara Bova: If Hillary wins get ready for some interesting changes

    The bets are in. Pundits say that Hillary Clinton will be our next president. I’m thinking as a Republican and a woman that having Hillary for president might be just what the doctor ordered. She might be able to accomplish changes that no man in office could ever do. With a female moderate in office, abortion will no longer be on the front burner. The expression, “little woman” will be erased from the minds of not just men, but women. If Hillary wins, it will bring a new status to women. But most of all, women will begin to raise...

    The US has also today come in for unprecedented criticism from the Iraqi Prime Minister. He has told a UK newspaper that he wishes that Baghdad could receive strong messages of support from the US. Nuri al-Maliki said Iraq's need for US troops could fall in three to six months if Washington equipped Iraqi security forces with sufficient weapons. He is also reported to have told an Italian paper that President Bush has never been in a weaker position than he is today. He is quoted as saying that it is the administration in Washington facing demise, not the Iraqi...

    WASHINGTON — The investigation into the case of a U.S. servicewoman who reappeared as mysteriously as she vanished will continue, a senior defense official said Tuesday, adding that something about her story didn't add up. Air Force Maj. Jill Metzger, 33, vanished from a shopping mall in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, on Sept. 5. She resurfaced three days later when she knocked on the door of a house in Kant, about 22 outside Bishkek, and claimed she had been kidnapped. Kyrgyz police said Monday that Metzger, who was serving a tour at the U.S. military base in Manas, gave confused accounts about...

    IT'S OFFICIAL: 2005 WILL BE the newspaper industry's worst year since the last ad industry recession. And things aren't looking much better for next year either, according to a top Wall Street firm's report on newspaper publishing. "Sadly, 2005 is shaping up as the industry's worst year from a revenue growth perspective since the recession impacted 2001-2002 period," says the report from Goldman Sachs, adding a warning that meaningful growth in 2006 is "very unlikely."

    Who will be the next pope? Whoever he is, the future leader of the world's more than 1 billion Roman Catholics is likely to stay the course on controversial issues like abortion, contraception and the ordination of women as priests. All but three of the 117 voting cardinals, who will gather in secret at the Sistine Chapel on April 18 to choose a successor to John Paul II, were appointed by the late pope, who strictly adhered to conservative church doctrine during his 26-year reign. But in the United States, where many Catholics tend to hold more liberal views on...

    I Saw Fire In The Sky Judy Curmi 2-11-2005 This was a very vivid dream. The dream occurred on a bright sunny day. I was walking along a black-topped road. My mother and sister Rosie were with me. We were in an upscale salt-water community, perhaps along the coast of California or Florida. Along the sides of the road were guardrails made of steel rods and thick beams of wood painted white, in keeping with a nautical theme. To our right a ramp went down steeply to wooden docks holding a number of small pleasure craft. Due to the steepness...

    Bishops warn Catholics about 'Left Behind' books The Roman Catholic bishops of Illinois are condemning the best- selling, Christian-themed Left Behind books as "anti-Catholic."excerpted ...Catholicism teaches that the Rapture actually happens at Christ's Second Coming, and not seven years before, as LaHaye and Jenkins describe and many other Christians believe. It's a subtle difference, but one hotly debated by Christians since the 1880s, when the idea of a pre-tribulation Rapture was popularized by theologians including evangelist Dwight L. Moody, founder of Chicago's Moody Bible Institute. "The bishops' main worry is, if they don't say anything, there could be Catholics...

    In an earlier column, I theorized that when the hijackers rammed those planes into the World Trade Center, they must've torn a hole in the space-time continuum, opening the door to another dimension – the Bizarro World – an alternate universe where everything is grotesquely inverted. But now it seems that the Great Inversion may have occurred far earlier, well before the hijackers succeeded in their hellish plot. The news that Mohamed Atta and friends paid a visit to the Department of Agriculture in order to apply for a government loan – after all, terrorism on the scale he imagined...
