Former top U.S. officials denounced the State Department, the United Nations and Iraq for failing to protect unarmed Iranian dissidents in a camp near Baghdad and blamed Iran for a weekend rocket attack that killed six refugees and wounded 50.
Businesses big and small aren't buying President Obama's claim that he's reducing the burden of costly federal regulations, a major barrier to job growth.
When in 1977 President Carter declared his "moral equivalent of war" (MEOW, as it appropriately came to be known) on our energy problems, and before being sabotaged by Iranians and killer rabbits, he gave us the Department of Energy (DOE), with no easily definable purpose and staffed by tens of thousands of superfluous bureaucrats, culled from various departments and agencies.
Mr. Card told Mr. Bush, then called back: "The president-elect is comfortable, so long as you still don't want to abolish the department you're being asked to head."
But then, in 2000, on New Year's Eve, Andrew H. Card Jr. called on behalf of incoming President George W. Bush to offer outgoing Sen. Abraham a Cabinet job as America's 10th secretary of energy.
