    A Cup of Afghan Tea with the Editors of The New York Times

    So what do yesterday’s nationwide tea parties and a protest march in Afghanistan have in common?

    No Defense for NY Times

    If there was an award for bonehead defense reporting it should go to The New York Times for “Military Contractors Await Details of Obama’s Budget.” The opening paragraph includes this howler…”The good news for big military from President Obama’s budget this week was his proposal to increase the basic budget … More

    Cato Fights Back

    The Cato Institute sought to make clear where they and the world’s smartest economists stand on the Pelosi-Reid-Obama Debt plan by running a full page ad in the New York Times, Washington Post and other major newspapers this week that includes 200 signatures from major economists who oppose the stimulus: … More

    Correcting Krugman's Nonsense

    New York Times columnist Paul Krugman was less than honest when he totally misrepresented my 2001 essay, “Taking Charge of Federal Personnel.” My point was simple: To achieve significant change, a president needs key appointees dedicated to pursuing his vision and mandate, not entrenched D.C. “wise men” intent on pursuing … More
