As Purim approaches, thousands of Israeli children and families grapple with poverty
Also that month, Senator Ted Kennedy issued the most irresponsible, jaw-dropping allegation of the war period, claiming that Bush, who had 90 percent approval ratings before the war, had launched the war with a bunch of yahoos in Texas for political purposes. The Bush White House, charged Kennedy, was “mean-spirited.”
The rage now flowed. An unhinged Al Gore emerged to endorse Dean; the father of Nick Berg blamed Bush for his son’s beheading by Islamic terrorists; Ralph Nader denounced the “messianic militarist” in the White House.
Some people seriously argued that Bush fabricated claims of Iraqi WMD, after everyone in the world, from left to right, from Bill Clinton to Madeleine Albright, from the French to the Russians, had argued since the early 1990s that Saddam was hiding WMD.
I believe Howard Dean was the one who broke this mold.
Alas, the anger worked. Dean may not have taken down George W. Bush in 2004, but he played a major role in doing so four years later.
Now Howard Dean can return to Vermont where, if he can find a hill high enough, he will not see a single Republican congressman from Maine to Massachusetts. Thanks in large part to his hand, they’re all gone, annihilated along with George W. Bush, who is most assuredly not Howard Dean’s neighbor.

I can tell you that Cablevision has been astonished at how high we rank.
In the 1980s, I was an unrefined adolescent from blue-collar Butler, Pennsylvania. I knew nothing and cared nothing about politics. I had no idea if I was a conservative or a liberal, Democrat or Republican, or much of anything else.
“In Bin Laden Announcement, Echoes of 2007 Obama Speech,” declared the headline in The New York Times.
It’s difficult to find a newspaper that has demonstrated a worse pro-Obama and anti-Bush bias than The New York Times, especially when dealing with the War on Terror.
Former president Jimmy Carter told NBC News last week that his work at home and abroad has been “superior” to other presidents.
“I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents,” Carter assessed. “Primarily because of [my] activism and the injection of working at the Carter Center and in international affairs, and, to some degree, domestic affairs.”
The huge “9/12” protest in Washington was the latest expression of discontent over President Obama’s leftward policy thrust. The discord is evident from the Tea Party movement to the chaotic town halls on health care reform.
What if an American president, on his own initiative, under no demands from staff or from supporters or opponents, set out to spend an unprecedented amount of money on AIDS in Africa, literally billions of dollars, at a time when the nation could not afford it, citing his faith as a primary motivation and, ultimately, saved more than a million lives?
Every American, obviously, has heard of Ronald Reagan, and Reagan historians have heard of Bill Clark. Clark was Reagan’s close aide, who, more than any other, laid the foundation for Cold War victory.
What’s the state of the republic one month into the Obama presidency? It’s a state of deep confusion. Here are some polls to ponder. Brace yourself.
