Jeb Bush missed red flags in Florida business scandal

Jeb BushThere were plenty of red flags surrounding the company Jeb Bush was planning to join: lawsuits, bad headlines, even previously convicted drug dealers in top positions.

But somehow Bush seemed to miss them all in 2007 as he prepared to join InnoVida as a $15,000-a month-consultant -- a position that would lead to board membership and stock options.

If this is what an anti-war presidency looks like to you, you're detached from reality

ObamaNothing sums up the warped foreign policy fantasy world in which Republicans live more than when House Speaker John Boehner recently called Obama an “anti-war president” under which America “is sitting on the sidelines” in the increasingly chaotic Middle East.

If Obama is an anti-war president, he’s the worst anti-war president in history. In the last six years, the Obama administration has bombed seven countries in the Middle East alone and armed countless more with tens of billions in dollars in weapons. But that’s apparently not enough for Republicans. As the Isis war continues to expand and Yemen descends into civil war, everyone is still demanding more: If only we bombed the region a little bit harder, then they’ll submit.

Supreme Court: Alabama may have illegally packed black voters into legislative districts

Justice BreyerThe Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that Alabama should reconsider the use of race in redistricting, siding with black lawmakers and Democrats in the state in throwing out a lower court’s decision.

In its second high-stakes decision dealing with the Voting Rights Act in two years, the high court ruled 5-4 in favor of African-American lawmakers who argued that the Republican-controlled Legislature packed thousands of black voters into existing majority-black state legislative districts to maintain a GOP-advantage in the other districts. But the ruling simply called the lower court’s decision “legally erroneous” and sent the case back to them without deciding whether Alabama’s redistricting plan was unconstitutional.

Ted Cruz is Going on Obamacare as Wife Takes Goldman Sachs Leave

Ted CruzThe Goldman Sachs health insurance plan has lost a high profile customer. Texas Senator Ted Cruz is going on Obamacare. With his wife Heidi taking leave to help her husband campaign for president, the Cruzes are leaving the $20,000 per year coverage she enjoyed at Goldman.

"We will presumably go on the exchange and sign up for health care and we're in the process of transitioning over to do that," Cruz told the Des Moines Register's Jennifer Jacobs. "It is written in the law that members will be on the exchanges without subsidies just like millions of Americans... I think the same rules should apply to all of us."

FactChecking Ted Cruz, 2016 GOP candidate for President

Ted CruzTexas Sen. Ted Cruz became the first major Republican candidate to declare himself officially in the 2016 presidential race. In announcing his presidential ambition,

Cruz repeated a number of dubious claims we have heard before, and a few we haven’t. Some highlights:

Cruz railed against a “government … that seeks to ban our ammunition.” The Obama administration sought to ban a certain type of armor-piercing bullet, not all types of ammunition. The proposal has since been postponed.

Barack Obama’s top aide says Israeli ‘occupation’ must end

Denis McDonoughWhite House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough made clear in a speech to a left-leaning Israel advocacy group that President Barack Obama isn’t letting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off the hook for his dismissal of a two-state solution.

That stance, as well as Netanyahu’s suggestion also made in the closing days before last week’s Israeli elections that he’d approved settlements in contested territory in Jerusalem for the strategic purpose of changing the borders are “so very troubling,” McDonough told J Street’s annual conference in Washington. He called the pro-Israel group, which opposes some of Netanyahu’s policies, “our partner.”
