Re: News audience ideology

MSNBC is only a -1? Really? WSJ I would've put on the plus side. (Yes, I know the score is supposed to reflect the audience, not the news source. But I can't believe MSNBC's audience is more centrist than Slate's audience.)

Re: Obama needs to call Bush

Not likely; that would require humility -- not something O is known for.

Re: S.C. Trooper Shoots Unarmed Man

That's messed up. At least the trooper has been arrested and the man wasn't killed. And this for a seat belt violation?

Re: Jessica

In what thread did this occur? Jessica has been around for only a week. To have a post pulled is quite an accomplishment!

Re: “There Is No Military Solution”

I'd really like to know what either of these sources would've done against Hitler in the '40's?

I love the reference to "Syria’s struggling non-violent opposition movement." Non-violent? In the middle of a very bloody civil war? I [more]

Re: tyrants in training

At what point did the Kennedy clan jump the shark and go communist? When Robert Sr. turned on the Vietnam war? Or was it all the doing of the one Kennedy who didn't meet an untimely end: Ted of Chappaquiddick?

Re: Can Jack Lew Add?

The opening lines say it all:

Many economists are downgrading their expectations for U.S. growth. So naturally the Obama Treasury this week rolled out a plan to discourage investment in America.

Re: Conservatives!

Welcome, jessicad!

....i will avoid political asylum!

The big question is whether the political asylum will avoid you? We do get frequent raids from what I like to think of as the "Three Trolls of the Apocalypse" [more]

Re: Detroit: Better and Stronger

The presence of GM and other major corporate headquarters is a boon to the city, Buffett said. But it’s also not a bad place to locate a business. “We would buy a company in Detroit today and we’d be happy to have the headquarters here,” he said. [more]

Re: Poll: How will they vote?

I'm torn on this. On the one hand voting Yes would be an unqualified disaster for Scotland (and pretty terrible for the UK and NATO too), on the other hand given WHY it would be an unqualified disaster perhaps it would be best if it happened, in a [more]

Re: Ireland/Scotland

This may fan separatist flames elsewhere. Spain has several separatist movements to contend with. The Italian North has flirted with separating from the rest of Italy. I'm mixed on this one. I love the UK and I enjoyed Scotland the one time I [more]

Re: Ukraine is our fault

So, let's get this straight, countries that share a border with Russia don't get to choose their own destiny but must march to Moscow's drum wherever it may lead? By that logic, Communist Cuba should not exist.

Re: Angry grad responds to donation request.

The "response" by the professor exhibits a degree of arrogance that is just hard to fathom.

The part about "marginal salaries" totally lost me.

Re: April 1975 , Last days in Vietnam

Let's see, 1975 and Richard Nixon was already out of office. When the NVA break the 1973 peace agreement and invade South Vietnam, President Ford requested military aid for the South Vietnamese from a solidly Democratic Congress and was denied. [more]
