Iraq imploding


Last week, Iraq was imploding despite President Obama’s and Vice President Joe Biden’s words in 2011 that Iraq would be a stable and sovereign nation after the withdrawal of U.S. troops. Thousands of undocumented youngsters and adults are pouring across our southern borders, thanks to an Obama policy that allows young children to come and stay. And after waiting one year for Lois Lerner’s/IRS e-mails, we are told they have mysteriously disappeared because of a computer glitch, something few believe.

Where are our leaders? Obama is in California playing golf, attending fundraisers and giving speeches on global warming. His Senate majority leader is more concerned with the name of the Washington Redskins football team than more serious matters. Is this a comedy of errors or just more detachment and ineptness by this administration? It doesn’t matter, because it seems to just keep happening over and over again.

  • Lessons from China

    Kudos to my congresswoman, U.S. Rep Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and Sen. Marco Rubio for sending their staffers to China. This should help open their eyes (and the eyes of their staffers) to what a real and effective policy toward Cuba should look like.

  • Corruption at corrections

    Randall Jordan-Amparo’s death in the hands of a system of a callous, corrupt crew in Florida’s corrections system is outrageous and unacceptable. I thank the Miami Herald for illuminating this travesty of justice.

  • FIU expansion has benefits

    Through the years, I have enjoyed the Youth Fair with my family. I have also been delighted at how much Florida International University has grown and flourished.
