Exclusive to STR Barack Obama is an eminently reasonable man. Not an ideologue of the left or right -- you know, one of those people with actual core beliefs and convictions -- he's a pragmatist interested only in what works. Or so that's what he's sought to convey in every major speech and policy decision: President Obama, Mr. Centrist -- his only ideology is his commitment to being non-...

Exclusive to STR A peculiar notion has arisen of late, maintaining that things like torture, domestic spying and illegal wars are all attributable to the Right -- namely, the administration of President George W. Bush -- and are in fact historical anomalies, not at all in keeping with the traditions of these great United States. The idea that war crimes and civil liberties violations are strictly...

Until the recent tragic massacre on the campus of Virginia Tech, the media's previous obsession was covering what was undoubtedly the most important story since the paternity test results were revealed for Anna Nicole Smith's baby: Don Imus, the favored 'shock jock' of the Washington political establishment, is something of a bigot.

No matter where one turns these days, it seems impossible to avoid negative news stories about President Bush and his mission to bring peace and freedom to the people of Iraq . All too often the liberal media, which has wanted our troops to fail from the start, has reported only the bad things happening while completely avoiding all of the positives.
Movie Review: A Patriot Act

It's not easy making a political film that is both entertaining and informative, in fact 'it's hard work,' as the President would say. All too often a filmmaker will get so caught up in preaching his message that he ends up making a bloated, self-righteous film that accomplishes nothing more than what a bottle of Nyquil could do for much cheaper. Thankfully, Mark Crispin Miller, the writer and...

It's almost Memorial Day, and you know what that means; the temperature is getting warmer, the terror alert level is getting higher, and graduation speakers are running into trouble, yet again. This year, with the exception of Sen. Rick Santorum's speech at St. Joseph's University, where an eighth of the graduating class walked out before his speech, it's critics of the Bush administration and...
