FOX NEWS is out to bring up everything either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton said about each other during the primary, but NOT ONCE have they brought up how George H.W. Bush called Ronald Reagan's domestic plan "voodoo economics" during their primary battle in 1980.

FOX NEWS suffers from short-term memory syndrome.

As we all know, Reagan won the election and then appointed George H.W. Bush as his Vice President.

The point is many things are said in a primary, but quickly forgotten after someone is selected as the Presidential choice for President of their party.

But poor little wimp Sean Hannity and his ass-kissing regular FOX NEWS guest, Dick Morris, former Clinton adviser, keep bringing up everything that Clinton or Obama ever said about each other, but NEVER, NEVER, NEVER mention what someone like George H.W. Bush said about Ronald Reagan's economic plan.

Where is the "fair and balanced" reporting at FOX NEWS?


The mainstream press keeps trying to say the war in Iraq is over. That is far from the truth. In fact, there have been a steady uptick in violence across Iraq in the past few days. Here is the latest:

BAGHDAD, Dec. 1 -- Bombing attacks targeting Iraqi security forces in Baghdad and a U.S. patrol in the northern city of Mosul left at least 27 people dead and dozens more injured, Iraqi officials said, making Monday one of the deadliest days in recent weeks in Iraq.

The attacks highlighted the fragility of Iraq's security situation as the country prepares for provincial elections early next year. The United Nations mission in Iraq warned Sunday that violence could rise in the run-up to the voting.

In eastern Baghdad, a suicide bomber detonated his explosives belt at the back gate of a police academy about 1 p.m. Two minutes later, another bomber exploded a booby-trapped car at the main entrance of a nearby government building, said Maj. Gen. Qassim Atta, the top spokesman for Iraqi military operations in Baghdad.

In a statement, the U.S. military said 15 policemen were killed and 35 policemen and civilians were injured in the attack. Iraqi authorities said the blasts killed 11 people and injured 34.

When the blast occurred, students were leaving the academy after classes, said Lt. Ahmad Kadhim, a member of the SWAT team assigned to guard the academy. He said his men had left their posts to receive their salaries.

The attack took place shortly after U.S. and Afghan forces announced they had killed 17 people they called "armed militants" in Afghanistan, and detained another 10.

One person was killed and 10 seized in one incident in Zadran district, south of Kabul, while 16 were killed in a second encounter in Sorobi district, east of the capital.

The Zadran operation Saturday targeted a militant associated with the radical Haqqani network who assisted foreign fighters, the joint statement said.

He is thought "to coordinate and assist with the movement of Islamic Jihadist Union (IJU) and other foreign fighters into Afghanistan." He was among the 10 people detained, according to the statement.
