White House Dossier Slows Down for a Week

by Keith Koffler on August 15, 2014, 10:44 pm

Hi everyone.

I will be posting less often from Saturday, August 16 through Sunday, August 24 in order to get some rest, spend time with family, and do some thinking about future projects related to the website. I will be back full time Monday, August 25.

I will, as I usually do, ask you to run the place in my absence, providing plenty of open threads. Please this time straighten up when you’re done at the end of every day instead of waiting until the end of the week. Last time there was a stain on the carpet and someone left a half-eaten sandwich in the liquor cabinet. Okay?

This post will stay at the top and articles and open threads will appear below.

Biking and then . . . Well What Do You Think?

August 15, 2014

An Obama family vacation is an exercise in rituals – box checking if you want to be mean about it – and one of the sacred rites on the Martha’s Vineyard vacation, along with a trip to the beach and a look through the bookstore, is The Bike Ride. This has not always worked out […]

ISIS Must Be Destroyed

August 15, 2014

I try, when I make decisions about important matters, to first figure out what, if anything, is unacceptable, and then work backwards from there. It makes the decision process easier. Say I’m thinking about what job to take. If I am told that at one of the jobs, the boss in a nasty, overbearing sort […]

Chuck Todd Takes Over Meet the Press

August 15, 2014

I hope I’m wrong, but I’m not sure NBC White House Correspondent Chuck Todd is the right choice to host Meet the Press. Todd, as you probably know, will replace David Gregory. I’ve worked with both during their stints as White House reporters. This is why Tim Russert succeeded so well on Meet the Press: […]
