    For a long time I resisted the word "torture" when discussing the "enhanced interrogation techniques" used against high-value captives in the war on terror. I don't think I can do that anymore. The report put out by Diane Feinstein and her fellow...
  • Gruber flap reopens not-so-old wounds

    I understand we've turned the page to the next controversy -- Obama's unconstitutional immigration pander -- but I'd like to dwell a little longer on the previous travesty. Obama administration health-care consultant Jonathan Gruber was discovered to...

    Economics will be Jeb Bush's greatest problem for 2016
    Jeb Bush told The Wall Street Journal's CEO Council this week that if he runs for president in 2016, he'll avoid courting Republican primary voters in ways that alienate the rest of the electorate, and he's willing to risk losing the primaries in...

    King Obama's edict is a mess
    Maybe President Barack Obama is just trolling? For those who don't know, in Internet parlance, trolling is an effort to elicit outrage from a specific group or the public generally. As the always useful — but not always G-rated, or spell-checked...
  • Zealous conservatives appear unlikely to compromise in next Congress

    After November's midterm election, polls found that most Americans wanted their members of Congress to seek compromise — anything to end the gridlock that has plagued Washington. An NBC-Wall Street Journal survey found that even among Republicans,...

    A D.C. cure: Take the hard votes
    What day is it?" "It's today," squeaked Piglet. "My favorite day," said Pooh. As a proud member of the "don't just do something, sit there" school of politics, I don't fret much about partisanship and gridlock. Partisanship and gridlock aren't...
  • Extended voting period has cranked up the demagoguery

    It used to be that the first Tuesday in November was Election Day, but now it is the last day of Election Month. Election Month is bad, but it's a symptom of a deeper problem that makes the underlying problem worse. As George Orwell said, "A man may take...
