Obama Applauded Because He Channeled George W. Bush

By |March 29th, 2011|

Mark Halperin, the political weathervane of Washington, judged Obama's speech last night a success for a reason no Democrat should trumpet: George W. Bush could have delivered every sentence.

Flashback Fun for 2012: Newt Gingrich Spinning his Cheating During Clinton Impeachment

By |March 28th, 2011|
