A historical perspective on why Obama is wrong about Israel
…Netanyahu is correct. What Obama is asking is for him to risk the survival of his entire nation, and he’s right to take what some are calling a “defiant” tone here.
It is almost unprecedented to expect the victor of a war to return territories won in the conflict, especially when such lands are obtained from an aggressor and viewed as strategically essential territories for future defense.

Adam Hasner: Conservative Before It Was Cool
There’s only one Marco Rubio. But he’s one heckuva fantastic blueprint to follow for a conservative Senate candidate.
Who better to send to the Senate to work with Rubio to fight against the liberal policies of Barack Obama and Harry Reid, than Adam Hasner, the very man who worked with Rubio to fight against the liberal policies of Charlie Crist and George LeMieux?
