Bush declines endorsing job predictions

Posted 11:11am March 1 by Vanessa Maltin U-WIRE Washington Bureau With fears that the Democratic presidential nominee could make an issue of his failure to meet projections, President Bush declined to endorse an estimate last Monday made by his economic advisers that the U.S. economy will add 2.6 million jobs this year. In the past […]

Column: Mister electability

Following Iowa’s caucus shake-up six weeks ago, a slogan emerged to describe new Kerry supporters: “Dated Dean, married Kerry.” With Dean now officially out of the picture, many Democrats appear ready to seal the deal with the Massachusetts Senator. What, exactly, is Mr. Kerry’s appeal? Kerry courted Democratic primary voters almost entirely with his “electability,” […]

Military service not likely to be issue in general campaign

Posted 11:14am March 1 By Nell McGarity U-WIRE Washington Bureau As the Democratic field narrows, President Bush’s record, particularly his service during Vietnam, has been called into question. After over three decades, the Vietnam War finds itself as part of the 2004 campaign not only as a challenge to the President’s record from the Democratic […]

Column: Going back to the roots

The state of the gay civil and equal rights movement is not good. In fact, it is in a state of disarray. With the president of the United States pushing a Constitutional amendment that would ban gays from partaking in the sanctity of marriage – a move that would basically write a segment of the […]

The Full Nelson: As team improves, fans must too

Like most people at GW, I’m glad Saturday’s basketball game against Richmond wasn’t televised. Despite all the hype, our performance was disappointing. We embarrassed ourselves and would have only damaged our reputation had the game been on national or even regional television. Luckily, only a small section of Richmond fans and the actual Richmond players […]

Letters to the Editor

Not one truth In response to “Speaking the truth (Feb. 26 p. 5),” I’d like to represent another side of the case. Last time I checked Jesus did not put his stamp of approval on the Bible and neither do I. The true, more complete story is not in a book but in your own […]

Women finish on high note

It wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t easy, but the GW women’s basketball team returned to its winning ways with strong finishes at Massachusetts Thursday and at home against Temple Sunday on senior day. While GW (21-6, 14-2 Atlantic 10) had already clinched the A-10 West title and its seed in next weekend’s A-10 Tournament, the […]

Editorial: Vote Omar

Last week this page asserted that while it came after careful, long and difficult deliberations, Omar Woodard was clearly the candidate best positioned to return student excitement to and interest in the Student Association. After the events of this week, it is equally clear that it is no longer a difficult decision to make. In […]

Varsity Roundup

Baseball drops two of three at UTSA The GW baseball team dropped two games and won one in a three-game series at the University of Texas at San Antonio last weekend. Their 9-5 win Saturday was their first road victory of the season. On Sunday, the Colonials (2-6) managed to turn seven hits into only […]

Spiders spoil Men’s win streak

The GW men’s basketball team came into Saturday’s game against Richmond winners of five in a row, tied for first place in the Atlantic 10 West and one victory away from its first perfect home season in five years. But the Spiders shut down the streaking Colonials, defeating GW 75-67 in front of a loud […]
