When fighting war, especially against terrorists, one should listen to Shakespeare, Lincoln and Truman, and not the American Civil Liberties Union.
Knowing my children learn more from my example than from anything I say, I’ve been moved to serious reflection about what I’m teaching them about the Internet. The Internet is both amazing and terrible. It is both an equalizer and a tranquiliz
Missouri's two senators want to rename Washington's Union Station after President Harry Truman.
No matter where one stands on the crises in the Middle East, there's little argument right now on either side of the political aisle that the president's handling of Syria is no way to conduct American foreign policy.
Chuck Hagel humiliated himself with rambling, evasive, stumbling answers to questions from his old Senate colleagues in hearings on his nomination as secretary of defense. He embarrassed Barack Obama, to the extent that the president can be embarrassed by gross incompetence in his administration.
The German capital, center of Nazi power, represented the big prize at the end of World War II. The victorious Allies -- the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain and France -- occupied and divided the city into four zones. The arrangement was meant to guarantee access to all.
Japan marked the 67th anniversary of the world's first atomic bomb attack with a ceremony Monday that was attended by a grandson of Harry Truman, the U.S. president who ordered the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
It has been 64 years since President Truman pulled the upset victory of the 20th century and historians still can't get enough of it. Now comes a new book brimming with fresh and detailed information. David Pietrusza's "1948: Harry Truman's Improbable Victory and the Year That Transformed America's Role in the World" contains more human-interest subplots than a Shakespeare play.
In the weeks ahead, I shall be in Europe to speak on American politics. What will I say to old Europe? Well, I shall give them my broad view of American politics and end with the present election cycle in which I believe Barack Obama will be retired to private life, though he cannot really conceive of private life. He will continue his public life as he has for all his adult life. That is how Democrats live. He will be a community organizer to the world, as Bill Clinton has become, in the words of MSNBC, "President of the World: The Bill Clinton Phenomenon."
According to a University of Miami study, those historical rankings of American presidents that pop up every year or so are significantly weighted in favor of Democrats, thanks to the liberal leanings of academia.
Actor Gary Sinise says playing President Harry Truman in a movie changed his life.
After the Democrats' shellacking at the polls in November, liberal pundits began evoking the Republican Congress that took power after a similar electoral defeat during President Harry Truman's first term. The "do nothing" Congress lasted just two years; in 1948, the Republicans ceded control of the Hill, and Truman was narrowly re-elected president. President Obama would like to replay this script and will take every opportunity to tag the incoming House Republican majority as obstructionist, irresponsible and out of touch. Yet in some respects, the 80th Congress set an example from which the 112th Congress could benefit.
In the last week or two, an eccentric debate has been dividing Democratic Party polls and commentators in Washington: In 2011, should President Obama strive to be more like Harry Truman in 1947 or Bill Clinton in 1995?
It's almost time for the Democrats to call in Harry S. Truman.
As President Harry Truman famously said, "The buck stops here."
His mission, Truman said, was merely to ensure they had the tools they believed they needed.
