Will the Democrats Betray Us?

By FRANK RICH

General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker could grab an
hour of prime television time only by slinking into the safe
foxhole of Fox News, where Brit Hume chaperoned them
on a gloomy, bunkerlike set before an audience of merely
1.5 million true believers. Their "Briefing for America," as
Fox titled it, was all too fittingly interrupted early on for a
commercial promising pharmaceutical relief from erectile
dysfunction. Continue

The 9/11 attacks gave neoconservatives their
“new Pearl Harbor” that enabled them to implement
their hegemonic agenda in the Middle East. The 9/11
attacks gave Americans boiling with accumulated
frustrations a foe upon whom to vent their rage.
Politicians, even Democrats, could show that they
stood tall for America. George W. Bush has invested
two presidential terms in “fighting terror” by invading
countries in the Middle East. Continue

The Coming U.S. Hard Landing

By Nouriel Roubin

The utterly ugly employment figures for August (a fall
in jobs for the first time in four years, downward revisions
to previous months’ data, a fall in the labor participation
rate, and an even weaker employment picture based

queued up outside of Northern Rock Bank waiting to withdraw
their money. The pictures are headline news in the UK but have
been stuck on the back pages of US newspapers. The reason for
this is obvious---the same Force 5 economic-hurricane that just
touched ground in Great Britain is headed for America and gaining
