Iowa: making Reagan 'look like a liberal'

A raft of Republican candidates are vying for support on Iowa Tuesday as President Barack Obama looks on. Reverend Jesse Jackson says they make Reagan look like a 'liberal'. Also, there's an insight into opinion among Syrians on the street about the Arab League. And, would you go for a gold facial if you had a spare $200? That's the focus for this Tuesday 3rd January, 2012.

The Chicago Sun-Times publishes a piece by Reverend Jesse Jackson, twice a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. He says: “In Iowa, only offensive choices available”.

The Independent goes “Inside Obama’s Chicago Machine”. His campaign staff believe the Republican selection process could last till June.

The Atlantic, meanwhile, is asking: “Who is Rick Santorum?”

On Syria, the Lebanese paper L’Orient Le Jour headlines: “The Arab League calls for a complete end to sniper fire.”

Gulf News publishes a piece by Sami Moubayed, editor-in-chief of “Forward” magazine in Damascus, entitled “Observers court controversy in Syria”.

And The Wall Street Journal reports from Bangkok where a spa chain is asking $200 per gold facial: “Seekers of golden glow rush to Thai spas”.
