  • Two cheers for rebranding

    Ever since Mitt Romney lost the presidential election, there's been a lot of talk about how the Republican Party needs to "rebrand" itself. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal wants, among other things, for the GOP to stop being "the stupid party." Rep. Paul...
  • IRS follows Obama's lead

    Of course the president deserves some of the blame. Yes, it's extremely unlikely he ordered the IRS to discriminate against tea party, pro-life or Jewish groups opposed to his agenda (though why anyone should take his word for it is beyond me). And his...
  • Press shield has holes

    In response to the acknowledged abuses of his own Justice Department, President Obama has urged Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to reintroduce legislation for a "journalist shield law." And in typical Washington fashion, the proposed act would do nothing to...

    Government shutdown: Democrats push Boehner to move forward
    WASHINGTON -- Democrats used both diplomacy and trash talk to urge House Speaker John A. Boehner to abandon his tea party flank Wednesday and pass a no-strings-attached bill to reopen the federal government, as attention turned to the broader fight...
  • Republican moderates hold key to ending government shutdown

    WASHINGTON — For most of the last two decades, Republicans such as Rep. Patrick Meehan, who represents a politically competitive district near Philadelphia, have been the odd men out in a House caucus dominated by conservatives such as those aligned...

    Congress resumes Saturday; no shutdown end in sight
    WASHINGTON – With no end to the shutdown in sight, Congress headed into a weekend session as House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) sought to firm up fraying support from his conservative flank by vowing he would not agree to raise the nation’...

    Senate's Schumer calls on Democrats to fight for government
    WASHINGTON – One of the Democrats' top strategists in Congress said his party should punch back against the rise of the conservative tea party with a full-throated defense of government. He called for a 2014 legislative agenda that promotes jobs,...
