Jeb Bush, the newest front-runner among Republicans seeking their party´s 2016 presidential nomination, smoked marijuana in high school--an activity he describes as ´pretty common´ at the tony Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. He told The Boston Globe in an interview published ahead of Sunday´s edition that ´I drank alcohol and I smoked marijuana when I was at Andover.´ Both activities were strictly forbidden at the time--and still are--and could have gotten him expelled. But ´it was pretty common,´ he insisted. It´s common for presidential hopefuls to ´dump´ unflattering news about themselves early in election cycles, in the hope that it will be considered

Jeb Bush has become the GOP
front-runner for 2016 — so now what?

Mitt Romney’s decision to forgo a third try at the White House has settled the question of whether the 2016 GOP presidential field has a front-runner — bestowing a coveted status on former Florida governor Jeb Bush that also raises new challenges and perils. Republicans have a tradition of picking an anointed one early. That establishment candidate almost always ends up with the nomination, although not without a fight and some speed bumps along the way. But this is a particularly unsettled time for the party. It is struggling to define its identity amid open warfare among its various factions. And

Megyn Kelly tonight took on Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby about the news that one of the “Taliban Five” has made contact with terrorists since being freed from Guantanamo Bay. “Can you assure the American people that these five guys do not pose any threat to the United States?” Kelly pressed. Kirby insisted that the U.S. is working with Qatar to mitigate the threat, but Kelly questioned Kirby on how this man made contact with terrorists “if our protocols are so great.” “Obviously, there’s a flaw in the system,” Kelly remarked. But Kirby argued that the system in

WASHINGTON – Democrats in the House of Representatives are suggesting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu postpone his speech to a joint session of Congress until after the Israeli election on March 17. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said it was “not appropriate” for Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to invite Netanyahu without first notifying the White House – a move that angered the Obama administration. Netanyahu is expected to advocate for a different policy on Iran that the president has thus far pursued. “Such a presentation could send the wrong message in terms of giving diplomacy a chance,” Pelosi said. She

If you’ve ever wondered “What the Hell Does ‘Politically Correct’ Mean?” and would like to hear the Marxist origins of the phrase, and how it mutated into one of the catchphrases of the 1990s until today, Jesse Walker has you covered at Reason. Everyone on the right knows what it’s like to argue with someone who´s been infected by the PC virus, a “word fetish,” as novelist John C. Wright dubs it, in pungent terms. “What the Leftist does in debate is utter his idiot word fetishes and slogans with the sneering hauteur of a card player displaying his trump

According to a Honey Maid commercial, divorce is now “wholesome.” “You know, I never thought I’d get divorced,” says a dad, as pictures of a smiling, blended family flit across the screen. “But the way I look at it, there are just more of us to love the kids now,” he says. “This is who we are, as perfect as we’re supposed to be,” a woman adds. The narrator joins in as two men are shown cooing over a baby: “No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will. Honey Maid. This is wholesome.” The description below the video of the ad on Honey Maid’s YouTube channel explains,

Last July, a few weeks before the New England Patriots started training camp, I got a call from Donald Yee, the agent in Los Angeles who has represented Tom Brady since he entered the N.F.L. in 2000. It had been four years since I first told Yee that I was interested in writing about Brady, even though I typically cover politics. I grew up in the Boston suburbs, rooted for the Patriots as a kid and even possessed vague memories of watching the team play at Fenway Park, one of their homes before they settled into the nowhereland of Foxborough,

Lindsey Graham of South Carolina over his former running mate Sarah Palin in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.McCain, R-Ariz., the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, has been an early and unabashed supporter of Graham, his friend and fellow Senate Armed Services Committee member who on Thursday took steps to officially "test the waters" of a White House bid by organizing a political committee.But Palin, a former Alaska governor and McCain´s 2008 pick for vice president, on Jan. 23 told the Washington Post she is "seriously interested" in running for

In the latest round of verbal gymnastics over the Taliban, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki refused to categorize the murder of American civilians at Kabul International Airport an act of “terrorism.” The Taliban claimed responsibility for that attack on Friday, which killed three civilian contractors working for the U.S. government and wounded one other. The gunman was reportedly a member of Afghan security forces who turned his weapon on his colleagues before being killed. “He managed yesterday evening to attain his goal and opened fire with his rifle on a group of American occupiers,” Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said. The attacker was

President Barack Obama is proposing a fundamental change in tax policy that would limit what many Americans can leave to their heirs. The change would affect billionaires -- as well as people who aren’t wealthy enough to pay estate taxes, if their assets have gained sharply enough in value. (Snip) Obama’s proposal, which will be detailed in his budget plan on Feb. 2, would impose a capital gains tax at death on the growth in the value of assets since they were purchased, except for those donated to charity. The plan, which would raise an estimated $210 billion over a

My spidey sense has been telling me for a while that Hillary Clinton would not be a very strong candidate for president, despite those polls that seem to show her ahead of the GOP field. First of all, she has tons of baggage, including a disastrous term as Secretary of State. Relations with Russia are in the tank, and there is that picture of her with an idiot grin holding a “reset button” with her Russian counterpart. (snip) She has dropped out of sight lately, which is a sure sign that plastic surgery is underway (again) to repair that tired

Rep. Martha McSally (R., Ariz.) flew A-10 Warthogs in Iraq and Afghanistan and is now fighting to make sure the Pentagon does not scrap them from the budget. In a letter to President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, McSally wrote that the decision to retire the A-10 would “put American lives at risk.” The Military Times reports: McSally is a retired Air Force colonel and has 325 combat hours in the A-10 in Iraq and Afghanistan. She also commanded an A-10 squadron. “From my experience as an A-10 pilot and squadron commander, I know first hand the unique
