    Do Wavering Obama Voters Think the Man They Voted For Is Naïve? How do you persuade someone who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 to vote for the Republican option in 2012? ... a lot of Obama voters must be persuaded that they made the wrong choice in 2008, and that it isn’t their fault. Monday I spoke to a smart political mind who had been watching focus groups of wavering Obama voters in swing states, and he said that one word that those voters kept coming back to, again and again, was “naïve.” (The term was to describe the...

    Not content with creating havoc in the U.S. economy, setting Americans against each other, and forcing through a health reform act which has nothing to do with health but everything to do with the redistribution of wealth and an immense increase in governmental interference, our president has now opened a Pandora's Box in the Middle East. It may well usher in a catastrophe not seen since World War 2. From his notorious Cairo speech to the present, President Obama speaks, and disaster follows. Some commentators believe that President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton are so utterly naïve as to...

    Archangel sculpture rises from Lichfield nave Maev Kennedy Monday February 20, 2006 Simply red ... the carving of the Archangel Gabriel recently discovered under the nave of Lichfield Cathedral. Photograph: Shelley Stratford The Archangel Gabriel, his wings still fiery with colour applied over 1200 years ago, has emerged from beneath the nave of Lichfield Cathedral. The Anglo-Saxon carved figure was found when builders, watched over by archaeologists, took up part of the floor of the nave to build a new rising platform for concerts and recitals. "None of us imagined that the project would provide a priceless gem, with the...

    December 15, 2005, 8:27 a.m. It's Electric U.S. troops describe a festive atmosphere across Iraq. By W. Thomas Smith Jr. As Iraqis queue up at polling stations, some of the scenes look more like a series of regional block parties than what most Westerners would associate with an election day. Children can be seen waving flags or playing soccer. Adults are cheering, clapping hands, beating drums, singing, dancing, and waving at passing U.S. and Iraqi military vehicles. There simply seems to have been more energy in the run-up to this election than in previous ones. And why not? December 15,...

    The U.S. Senate has unanimously approved bipartisan legislation cosponsored by Dick Lugar that will create separate campaign medals for American soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is a long-standing tradition for members of the armed forces who have served in conflicts overseas to have their service recognized with a medal.  The Pentagon initially has proposed honoring servicemen and women who are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan with the "Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal," which recognizes any overseas service in support of anti-terrorism operations, regardless of location. This legislation reflects the belief of Senator Lugar and other members of Congress...
