  • Hillary's dilemma: How to distance herself from Obama

    Hillary Clinton is in a pickle. She's a shoe-in for her party's presidential nomination because of Barack Obama's failures. But those failures might keep her from getting the job. Her husband's "law of politics" is that elections are always about the...

    Hillary's Obama problem
    Hillary Clinton is in a pickle. She's a shoe-in for her party's presidential nomination because of Barack Obama's failures. But those failures might keep her from getting the job. Her husband's "law of politics" is that elections are always about the...
  • Conservative 'compassion' for the underprivileged blows another fuse

    Conservative 'compassion' for the underprivileged blows another fuse
    The conservative movement last week unveiled another effort to show that compassion for the downtrodden of society is what really animates its economic policies, which on the surface appear designed to widen the gap between the haves and the have-nots....
  • Putin's well-worn fascist lies

    Vladimir Putin, with the aid of his vast propaganda machinery, has convinced many Russians that the interim government in Ukraine is expressly Nazi and fascist. And while there were some neo-Nazi goons among the protesters who brought down the corrupt...
  • Mass killers hold culture -- and country -- hostage

    Can we please stop holding the country hostage to crazy people? Every year a tiny number of mentally ill people go on horrific killing sprees. It just happened in California. I won't name the person because I think the media attention lavished on these...

    The notion that something can simultaneously be wrong and constitutional really seems to bother a lot of people. Consider the Supreme Court's recent decision on public prayer. In Greece v. Galloway the court ruled, 5-4, that the little town of Greece,...
  • Clayton Lockett: A just execution, regardless

    Last week the state of Oklahoma "botched" an execution. Botched is the accepted term in the media coverage, despite the fact Clayton Lockett was executed. He just died badly, suffering for 43 minutes until he eventually had a heart attack. Oklahoma's...
  • Obama's stand-up routine is laughable indeed

    President Obama was doing his favorite thing this week: talking to crowds of adoring young people who already agree with him while acting like he persuaded them about something. They also seemed to give Obama the impression that he's a really funny guy....
  • Obamacare isn't dying so what now for Republicans?

    Imagine that someone had told you a year ago what Obamacare would look like in April 2014. Let's say he predicted that the number of people with health insurance would rise, but by much less than the Congressional Budget Office was projecting. Much of...
  • What principles rule the GOP?

    For years, Republicans benefited from economic growth. So did pretty much everyone else, of course. But I have something specific in mind. Politically, when the economy is booming -- or merely improving at a satisfactory clip -- the distinction between...
  • Why ambitious ideas always backfire politically

    Americans say they want politicians to tackle the big issues and get things done. In 2008, they even elected a presidential candidate who said he was interested in "fundamentally transforming the United States of America." Yet almost every time elected...
