Bush Flags Down Balanced Budget Bandwagon

The same George W. Bush who presided over record deficits and never vetoed a spending bill made an effort on Wednesday to co-opt the Democrats’ goal of balancing the budget by 2012.

Old Ideas, New Job

Bush’s former Iraq and U.N. ambassador, John Negroponte, currently the director of national intelligence, is expected to accept a tacit demotion in order to become Condoleezza Rice’s deputy at the State Department. As if shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic, the president continues to shift a cast of familiar characters he’s come to rely on to implement his failed policies.

At least a dozen United Airlines employees reported seeing a flying saucer hovering over Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on Nov. 7, and they’re upset that no one—from the FAA to their own company—is taking them seriously.

Giuliani’s Campaign Strategy in the Wild

Likely presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani’s campaign has soured before it even began, after a strategic black book went missing. The document outlines the former New York mayor’s fund-raising plans, as well as his weaknesses, offering an edge to prospective opponents.

Adding Insult to Instability

It turns out America is much better at creating refugees than taking care of them. While thousands of Iraqis flee their homeland every day, the U.S. had planned to accept only 500 this year.

Turning the Corner in Somalia

The Islamists have fled, the transitional government and its Ethiopian allies have reclaimed Mogadishu as Somalia’s capital and the prime minister has banned guns and called for peacekeepers. Will the stability last, or will guerrilla warfare and clan violence tear the country apart for another 15 years?
