The Economy, Pres. Bush and the Presidential Campaign At a rose-garden news conference today, President Bush blamed Congress for blocking his proposals to deal with the high price of gasoline. He reassured Americans that he feels their economic pain.
Bush-Blair News Conference Follows Iraq Study Group Report The day after the Baker-Hamilton Report , President Bush met at the White House with his principle ally in the war in Iraq, British Prime Minister Tony Blair. At a news conference , President Bush was asked by a British reporter if, in the face of the findings of the Iraq Study Group, he was in denial about the situation in Iraq. President responded by extensively defending the importance of the Iraq war.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?

We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
