Re: The Challenge of Islam (Robert Wright & Akbar Ahmed)

But you haven't dealt with the specific examples cited. When the FBI advises people who make intemperate comments about The Prophet to flee or when Comedy Central pulls an episode (and replaces it...

Re: Keep It Moving (Dayo Olopade & Dave Weigel)

That's very interesting. I'm curious though about why the blue portion representing the tax cuts continues for as long as it does and in fact grows. Why is it assumed that the Obama administration...

Re: Keep It Moving (Dayo Olopade & Dave Weigel)

Tell you what AemJeff,

I consider myself a fair minded guy, so maybe there's a graph or chart out there that depicts Bush's spending that takes into account the Iraq war. If there is one, why...

Re: Keep It Moving (Dayo Olopade & Dave Weigel)

So, am I to understand that you think that the war costs should only be attributed to Bush and not Obama? If you're concerned about costs, shouldn't the graph I linked to be of concern to you? If...

Re: Keep It Moving (Dayo Olopade & Dave Weigel)

Fair enough. Then if we must consider the ongoing costs of our wars, then Obama must consider those costs as well even though he didn't initiate them. If a predecessor saddles me with tons of debt,...

Re: Keep It Moving (Dayo Olopade & Dave Weigel)

I honestly don't think most folks consider the costs of the war as rolled into discretionary spending. Instead, people see CBO charts like this one...

Re: Keep It Moving (Dayo Olopade & Dave Weigel)

Yes. Dave's response to her good question about where these people were during the Bush years was to discuss their education level. That doesn't answer her question at all.
I'm a regular NRO...

Re: Atavistic Edition (Michelle Goldberg & Matt Welch)

Let me throw something into the mix that hasn't been addressed sufficiently. Obama's rhetoric about not just 'What's In The Bill' but about the ultimate direction he intends to take the health care...

Re: Obama's Political Crisis (Joan Walsh & Joe Klein)

One of the reasons I like this site so much is the great improvement in civility and tone that it brings to those who value such things. It's a great step in the right direction. The next hurdle to...

Re: Obama's Political Crisis (Joan Walsh & Joe Klein)

My point is only that the VRWC is a boogeyman to explain Democrat losses so that Democrats like Joan (Joe seems a little closer to reality here) can avoid concerning themselves with the possibility...

Re: Obama's Political Crisis (Joan Walsh & Joe Klein)

I'm waiting to hear someone point out that "Wall Street" gives more to Democrats than Republicans. Isn't that significant?

Here's another one: Where was the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy in '06 &...
