  • Obama's non-ideological foreign policy not working

    So much for non-ideological foreign policy. When Barack Obama ran for president he vowed to be non-ideological. He was a pragmatist and a problem-solver. It wasn't just that George W. Bush's ideology was awful, ideology itself was a kind of sinful...
  • ISIS, Ukraine, Joan Rivers: Sunday topics

    ISIS, Ukraine, Joan Rivers: Sunday topics
    The Sunday morning programs will run the gamut from ISIS and Ukraine to Joan Rivers' hospitalization. The lineup: Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., talks to NBC's "Meet the Press" at 9 a.m. on WESH-Channel 2. A panel on ISIS brings together Gen....
  • Barry Ritholtz: A conservative case for infrastructure spending

    The other night, I made a rare airport run. Our niece from Chicago is visiting for the long weekend, and rather than send a car, we fought through both U.S. Open and Mets traffic to pick her up at LaGuardia Airport. Regular readers know my views of U.S....
  • Obama's small-screen worldview

    Does the president think the world is a TV show? One of the things you learn watching television as a kid is that the hero wins. No matter how dire things look, the star is going to be OK. MacGyver always defuses the bomb with some saltwater taffy before...
  • In Ferguson, a race to be wrong

    The events in Ferguson, Missouri, have launched a familiar spectacle: the race to be wrong first. Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African-American man, was shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The Washington Post had more on the story about...

    A fair-minded pundit falls into a right-wing trap on Social Security
    New York Magazine's Jonathan Chait is usually a judicious and perceptive analyst of the intersection between politics and economics. So it's disappointing to see him blindly falling in step with a conservative attack on Social Security. Chait's error is...
  • Prepare for a long war against the Islamic State

    The hawks (including me) were wrong about a lot, but some got one thing right. It's going to be a long war. In the early days after 9/11 there was a lot of talk about a "clash of civilizations" and a long "existential struggle" facing the West. I once...
  • America's selective libertarianism

    There's an old rule in journalism: All you need are three good examples to prove a trend. And by that measure, writer Robert Draper had more than he needed to declare a new "libertarian moment" in American politics. In a New York Times Magazine cover...
  • WWI demons live

    World War I started one century ago. Wait! Don't stop reading. For most Americans, the war is like algebra or frog anatomy -- something you have to study briefly in school but then never have to think about again. Unlike World War II, with its...
  • Obama remains consistent in his indifference to slaughter

    In the summer of 2007, then-Sen. Barack Obama was asked if he was worried that his proposed withdrawal from Iraq would result in ethnic cleansing or even genocide. He scoffed at the premise. "By that argument you would have 300,000 troops in the Congo...
  • The mystery of the missing Social Security data

    The mystery of the missing Social Security data
    Retirement expert Alicia Munnell of Boston College has brought a simmering Social Security mystery out into the open: Why were key figures about the program's benefits for retirees deleted from the latest trustees' report?   Munnell's conclusion, as set...
