Bill PressOne of many good things you can say about President Obama is that he is loyal to his friends. But sometimes, he is loyal to a fault, as is the case with Attorney General Eric Holder. Presidential buddy or not, it's time for Holder to go. You expect a...
Bill PressQuick! Somebody tell President Obama. Alert the members of Congress. Shout it out to the media: I have balanced the budget! That's right. Me. Bill Press, talk show host. I did it. I can't balance my own checkbook, but I balanced the federal budget. In...
Bill PressThere's nothing Washington likes better than a scandal. So official Washington was absolutely orgasmic this week while dealing with not one, but three scandals at the same time. Not one of which, sadly, was a sex scandal. First, there were accusations of...
Bill Press"Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who's the most powerful woman of them all?" No doubt about it. Not Queen Elizabeth, Angela Merkel or Oprah Winfrey. The most powerful woman on the planet is former first lady, former senator from New York, former...
Bill PressA rare beast was spotted this week in Washington. An event as rare as the sighting of Big Foot. We actually saw a real filibuster in action. It was a welcome event, even if it was performed by crazy Sen. Rand Paul. For two reasons. One, because Paul...
Bill PressIt suddenly hit me this week: I don't live in the real world. I live in Washington, D.C. In the real world, nobody would argue about renewing the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). It's a no-brainer. Violence against women, all women, is wrong. Only in...

Bill PressRegular readers of this column have heard me say it before, but I'll say it again: I'm often embarrassed by the questions my colleagues ask at White House briefings. This week was no exception. Among reporters inside the Beltway, the latest narrative,...
Bill PressIf aliens came to earth from outer space in search of intelligent life, Congress is the last place they would look for it. The Republican-led 112th Congress -- in a good week, in session no more than two and a half days -- let the Standard & Poor's credit...
Bill PressIt was inspiring to see them side by side at Southern Methodist University in Dallas: Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. For their service to this country, we are indebted to each one of them. It's...
Bill PressIt's been a busy week. The Senate voted 78-22 to renew the Violence Against Women Act. Christopher Dorner, ex-cop turned cop killer, was finally tracked down near Big Bear, Calif. Leaders of the International Olympic Committee voted to drop wrestling from...
Bill PressOver the last 40 years, I've been involved in a lot of political battles for a lot of different causes: workers' rights, women's rights, gay rights, environmental protection, anti-war, anti-nuclear power, anti-urban sprawl, animal rights, gun control,...
