Daniels is also looking to Liam Neeson to play Lyndon Johnson and John Cusack to play Richard Nixon. Arch-liberals...

In a recent news conference, President Obama gave his support to the anti-China campaign, declaring that China "has been very aggressive in gaming the trading system to its advantage," adding that "we can and should take action against countries that are keeping...
