New labels? Since when is terrorism a new label?

When Jeb Bush flew to Utah to meet with Mitt Romney a little over a week ago, I didn't think Romney would end up bowing out of the race despite Bush's efforts to persuade him.
But when Romney's top donors and one of his top advisers defected to Bush, I guess Romney got the message.
I am saddened to report that singer-songwriter and poet Rod McKuen passed away yesterday of complications of pneumonia. He was 81.
Mitt Romney has announced that he will not seek the Republican party's nomination a third time.
Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will not run for president in 2016.
Three weeks after unexpectedly saying he was considering a third campaign for the White House, the former Massachusetts governor told members of his staff during a Friday conference call that he is out of race.
Romney jumped back into the presidential discussion on Jan. 10, when he told a small group of former donors in New York that he was eyeing another White House run.
Secretary of State John Kerry has been fined by the City of Boston for not clearing the sidewalk in front of his Beacon Hill home from this week's snowstorm.
This shouldn't come as a surprise. What with Kerry telling us last week that Islam doesn't motivate Muslim terrorists and comparing the plight of European Muslims to that of African-Americans in The South during the '60s, he's been very busy shoveling something else.
While the Pentagon can't seem to make up its mind over whether to charge Bowe Bergdahl with desertion, at least one member of the Taliban Five has made his decision - he wants to rejoin the Taliban in Afghanistan.
To the shock of no one outside of the Obama Administration, this is turning into the worst trade since the Cubs sent Lou Brock to the Cardinals for Ernie Broglio.
Is it any wonder that the Obama Administration has been refusing to call the Taliban a terrorist organization for the past 48 hours?
There is no love lost between myself and Wisconsin. Honestly, between the Green Bay Packers and the fact that I get a speeding ticket every time I cross the state line, I find Wisconsin to be one of those states that are just better left alone (see also: Ohio). But while I might lack respect for his little piece of the American midwest, I do have a great deal of respect for Scott Walker, who, based on today's news alone, has giant, cheesy balls of steel.
Since it's rare to feel proud of the work John McCain does in Congress, it's probably worth keeping this little nugget somewhere deep in your files, so that you can pull it out and remember that somewhere, deep down inside that slowly-melting Maverick, there's still a passionate heart that burns with an unquenchable desire to smack a hippie back into the last century where she belongs.
This morning, John McCain's inner beast reared it's ugly head at Code Pink's.
We're confirming a new Attorney General this week, and already, Loretta Lynch's hearings are off to a rousing start as we discover that, yes, it actually is possible to do worse than Eric Holder. Unfortunately, rumor has it, behind the scene, most of the committee members have already agreed to confirm her, but that's not stopping them from having a little bit of fun before they officially close the books on her nomination process.
Yesterday, Ms. Lynch was asked her opinion on hot button topics like immigration, which, it turns out, she's reticent to enforce the Federal law on. At least, that's what it seems like from this line of questioning from Sen. Jeff Sessions.
Let me ask you this: In the workplace of America today when we have a high number of unemployed, we’ve had declining wages for many years, we have the lowest of Americans working, who has more right to a job in this country? A lawful immigrant who’s here, a green-card holder or a citizen, or a person who entered the country unlawfully?
