The story about Anthony Weiner and what accidentally ousted him

U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner (D, NY – 9th District) announced on Thursday his resignation from his political office. For almost a month – when his troubles started – we witnessed vague initial reactions from him regarding the authenticity of the photo that had been posted on his Twitter account mixed with lies, more lewd photos of him reported by the media, his subsequent confession that it was him on that first photo and that he sent it including that he was having online affairs with six young women, refusal to resign, more lewd photos reported by the media again, political pressure from his colleagues urging him to resign or to be completely isolated from the political process in Washington, D.C., opinion from President Barack Obama that if he was in this situation he would resign, and at the end his resignation which was inevitable judging by the circumstances.

Do all World Bank Presidents have money background

When I read about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s possible run for the World Bank Presidency one question immediately occurred in my mind – do all World Bank Presidents have money background? Hillary Clinton was member of the Board of Directors of Wal-Mart, a position that we rarely think of when we initially think of her, and one that is debatable as to whether it could be under the category of money background. We tend to think that leaders of organizations that deal with money – such as the World Bank Group, the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization, for example – have business or bank experience, understand the economy, and that their background speaks for their expertise on how money should be spent. This article aims at answering the aforementioned question – do all World Bank Presidents have money background – and not the competency of the current President and previous Presidents.

Why is politician a dirty word in the United States (from a Connecticut perspective)

Politics is generally perceived as governmental affairs. We call our elected officials in a legislative, executive, and in some cases even judicial offices politicians since they entered politics after their wins in democratic elections. These elections make politicians accountable for their political decision making to their constituents who would vote them out of office in case of dissatisfaction with a particular decision or overall. So far so good!

With a political system of checks and balances as the American one is, a governmental tyranny is at best highly unlikely. If it is so, then why is politician a dirty word in the United States? Why are politicians looked down on by the people and are being called crooks, corrupt and the like? Continue reading

The Two Sides of the Coin About Hillary Clinton’s False Remarks on her Trip to Bosnia

About three weeks ago, Senator Hillary Clinton made clearly false statements about her adventures in Tuzla, Bosnia. She went there twelve years ago to meet with the American troops who were on a mission regarding the Serbian-Bosnian conflict. Her false story can be listened to on Youtube and can be read on different websites as well. The media showed the video which revealed the truth about the then First Lady’s visit to Tuzla.

Democratic Race or Should I Say Democratic Mess

The Pennsylvania Democratic primaries are approaching with three and a half weeks remaining to make any difference in Barack Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s campaigns. This northeast state is considered a Clinton’s territory when it comes to the question who is going to win it. What is important, however, is what percentage of the 158 delegates at stake goes to the two presidential hopefuls. Right now Clinton is trailing Obama with more than 100 delegates and it undoubtedly matters how many more delegates than Obama she will get from this state.

Primaries and Caucuses So Far

Roughly two and a half months passed since the beginning of the presidential race in the United States. Most of the two major parties’ candidates quitted it before the Iowa caucuses, right after them, or after two or more states having cast their ballots, whether primaries or caucuses. It has been a rather interesting contest so far both in the Republican Party and in the Democratic Party.

The Next President Has to be Determined

With the majority of the states having already voted in both the Democratic and Republican primaries and caucuses, nobody is still capable of predicting who the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention will dominate to be their candidate to the general elections in November.
