A University of South California political science professor was captured on video calling former President George W. Bush lazy, stupid and incompetent — a mentally unstable man who wasted his youth on drugs and alcohol.
It has happened again. Our gaffe-prone president has filed another blunder on his presidential record. At the dedication of George W. Bush's presidential library, he invoked history with his usual mastery of detail. He placed President John F. Kennedy in Air Force One, "on the flight back from Russia, after negotiating with Nikita Khrushchev at the height of the Cold War."
I attended the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas last Thursday ("Emotional Bush at presidential library dedication: 'Our nation's best days lie ahead,'" Web, April 25). It was a profoundly moving event. The day was gloriously beautiful, the crowd of 10,000-plus was in a joyous mood, and the event itself was well-organized and went off without a hitch. I was happy to run into more than a few old friends and colleagues, including some I had not seen since Iraq in 2003 or 2004. Of course, the event was a "who's who" of former world leaders, state and local officials and mobs of former Bush administration officials, of which I proudly was one.

A Jewish university that proposes awarding former President Jimmy Carter with a peace award has sparked the outrage of pro-Israel activists, who say he's done little, if anything, to advance their cause.
Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated government recently allowed members of the Brotherhood and hardline jihadists to join Egypt's military academy for the first time as part of what U.S. officials say is a covert effort to impose Islamist rule in the key Middle East state.
Sodomy is the latest hot thing in Washington. You don't have to participate in it to think how cool it is. The love that dare not speak its name has become the passion that shouts from the housetops. Closets are emptying all over town.
In the course of our conversation, Richard Nixon singled out the then-relatively obscure ruler of a tiny city-state: Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew. Heaven only knows, Nixon reflected, what massive accomplishments Lee might have managed if he had led a major power.
Few Americans believe the economy will be much better in a year, a Rasmussen survey shows.
No one can continue to assert that President Obama is simply incompetent. Yes, he is indeed that. But that was all before the "sequester."
Here are just a few reasons how that is so: the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the African Growth and Opportunity Act, anti-malaria and education programs and, as Mr. Carter rightly pointed out, the peace treaty between southern and northern Sudan and the subsequent founding of the new nation of South Sudan in 2011.
