Another president, another Iraq speech

Getty Images

By Anthony ZurcherEditor, Echo Chambers The speech was short, roughly 15 minutes. Heavy on rhetoric and light on details, it was the kind of script a president delivers when he believes the public is already on his side. For now, according to opinion polls, the American people seem to support President Barack Obama’s steps toward greater involvement in the battle against the Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq. If by beheading two American journalists the Islamic militants wanted to get US attention and stir its anger, they were successful. Reaction from commentators and analysts tended to reflect this American mood,…

Investors cheer for Brazil World Cup rout

Brazil's President Rousseff speaks during a ceremony where she signs into law, the bill that allocates the country's oil royalties to education and health care, in Brasilia

By Rob Cox The author is a Reuters Breakingviews columnist. The opinions expressed are his own. At the opening of the Confederations Cup in Brasilia a year ago, President Dilma Rousseff was booed by thousands of soccer fans for all of Brazil to see. It’s easy to understand then why she isn’t planning to speak at Thursday’s opening ceremony of the World Cup. An embarrassing turn as host of Earth’s biggest sporting event – or crushing repeat of the 1950 Maracanaço – may be the greatest obstacle to her clinching a second term. With each dip in Rousseff’s poll numbers,…

Obama wants 9,800 troops in Afghanistan after 2014

Evan Vucci, AP

WASHINGTON — President Obama will announce a plan to keep contingency force of 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan beyond 2014, according to senior administration and Pentagon officials. Obama will make the announcement Tuesday afternoon in a statement, according to three senior administration officials. The officials asked not to be identified, so as not to preempt the president’s announcement. “He will make clear that we are open to continued efforts in Afghanistan on two narrow missions after 2014: training Afghan forces and supporting CT operations against the remnants of al-Qaeda,” one official said. “We will only sustain a military presence after…

In Florida, Hillary Clinton tops Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio in 2016 presidential poll

Hillary Clinton Florida voters prefer Democrat Hillary Clinton over any hypothetical Republican presidential candidate — even Floridians Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio — in the 2016 presidential race, a new Quinnipiac University poll says. Clinton is the clear favorite to win a Democratic primary in the Sunshine State, getting 64 percent to 9 percent for Vice President Joe Biden. Bush, who was Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007, is the top pick among Floria Republican voters. Bush is favored by 25 percent of GOP voters, with 16 percent supporting Sen. Rubio, 11 percent backing Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz getting 9 percent apiece. The controversy…

USA TODAY/Pew poll: Obama struggles with Millennials

(Photo Carolyn Kaster, AP)

President Obama sees his approval rating fall to 45% among young voters. WASHINGTON — Millennials have provided invaluable political support to President Obama over the course of his presidency, voting for him by a roughly 2-to-1 margin in his two successful campaigns against Mitt Romney and John McCain. But as Obama tries to climb out of a 2-month-long malaise that saw his popularity sink with the fumbled rollout of the federal health care exchange, the president appears to have nearly as much work to do with young people as he does with older Americans. Forty-five percent of 18- to 29-year-old…

Approval for Russia’s Putin lowest since 2000: opinion poll

Russian President Putin attends a meeting with academics at the Moscow State University

– Rising prices and an economic slowdown helped drive President Vladimir Putin’s public approval rating to its lowest level in more than 13 years last month, a Russian polling agency said on Tuesday. A survey by the independent Levada agency found 61 percent of respondents voiced approval for Putin’s performance in November, down from 64 percent in October and the previous low this year of 62 percent, recorded in January. The approval rating would be envied by many leaders but it was the lowest for Putin in Levada’s monthly survey since June 2000, the month after he started his first…

Meet The 37 House Republicans Who Could Lose Their Jobs For Shutting Down The Government

Paul Ryan -The 16-day federal government shutdown that furloughed 800,000 workers and cost the U.S. economy $24 billion dollars has largely been pinned on House Republicans, making many of them vulnerable in the 2014 midterm elections. Numerous polls have shown that a majority of Americans assign a larger share of blame for the shutdown to congressional Republicans, who tried to tie government funding provisions to defunding the Affordable Care Act. Even prominent Republicans like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) have criticized their colleagues in the House for damaging the GOP’s image. Fifty-four percent of Americans…

Majority Of Americans Think It’s ‘Bad For The Country’ That Republicans Control The House

John Boehner A majority of Americans think it is bad for the country that Republicans control the House of Representatives, and even more want House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to be replaced by another Republican, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday. Fifty-four percent think it’s bad that Republicans control the House, the poll found. That’s up from 43 percent in December 2012, during the last fiscal standoff. The figure is the first time a majority thought Republican control was bad for the country since CNN started asking in December 2010. Sixty-three percent of respondents want Boehner replaced, but by another…

World powers on ‘right track’ on Syria chemical arms: Putin

Russian President Putin speaks during VTB Capital Investment Forum "Russia Calling" in Moscow

– Global powers are “on the right track” with a plan to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons and can avert military intervention in the conflict if they work together, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday. Agreement on the plan to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons was reached after U.S. President Barack Obama asked Congress to approve air strikes to punish Syria’s government over an August 21 gas attack the United States says killed more than 1,400 people. “There is every reason to believe we are on the right track,” Putin told an investment conference. Putin said the chemical weapons plan, which…
