It Finally Happened

Friday, July 20th, 2007

That’s right, Barak Obama and I agree on an issue of national import.  Sen. Barak Obama said in an interview Thursday that the United States military should not remain in Iraq to prevent genocide.  As he correctly pointed out, doing so would set a new standard for military intervention that would stretch the military far […]

US Should Support Vote of No Confidence

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007
