Barack Obama went back to work this week, by which I of course mean he continued talking with hard-hitting media outlets like, er, Glamour.  What topics did Obama want to discuss — the economy, foreign policy, or the federal deficit?  Of course

Via Powerline, I think this is her version of a compromise. Deep down, she’d prefer that he held off until November 2016. Clinton said that the State Department’s Accountability Review Board will begin work this week and the letter revealed

Gotta take the bitter with the sweet here. On the one hand, the White House’s contradictions are treated essentially as a big miscommunication, with the smoking gun about how soon U.S. intel knew that it was a terror attack dispensed with in the

We’re not hearing much about Afghanistan in this election, which seems odd after having two straight presidential elections focus mostly on war and strategies for the projection of American power.  In part, this silence comes from a loose consensus
