  • Davis, Democrats sneak past inconvenient realities of abortion

    Wendy Davis, a Democratic state senator running to replace Rick Perry as governor of Texas, owes her political stardom to two things: a pair of pink sneakers and her unstinting support for a woman's right to terminate a late-term pregnancy in a...
  • Good riddance to Bernanke's tight-money policies

    Good riddance to Bernanke's tight-money policies
    The Wall Street Journal is on the hard-money side of the debate over recent monetary policy. But its editorial on the departure of Ben S. Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve articulated a conventional wisdom that transcends that debate. The...
  • Free the Keystone XL pipeline, Mr. President

    Welcome to the "year of action." In last week's State of the Union address, the president vowed to do whatever he must to help the economy, even if that means working around Congress: "What I offer tonight is a set of concrete, practical proposals to...
  • Hardships persist for long-term unemployed

    Hardships persist for long-term unemployed
    DENVILLE, N.J. — The phone begins to ring at 8 a.m. with incessant calls from creditors. Kevin Meyer has stopped picking up because he's sick of explaining the truth: that there's no money coming in, so he can't pay his bills. Two years ago,...
  • A too-early look at the 2016 presidential race: Bet on a dark horse

    Of course it's too early to talk about 2016. Now that we've gotten that out of the way ... The most interesting dynamic about the presidential race so far is that the Democrats are behaving like Republicans -- and vice versa. Since 1940, with the...
  • Ted Rall got it wrong on tenure and 'underpaid' teachers

    Ted Rall's Feb. 6 blog post and cartoon, "Stop tenure tyranny and show some love for our hardworking teachers," is long on demagoguery and little else. Even the title of the piece misses the mark. Contrary to what Rall writes, teachers in California's...
  • Olympic coverage sweeps Soviet horrors under the rug

    Hannah Arendt coined the term "the banality of evil" to describe the galling normalcy of Nazi mass murderer Adolf Eichmann. Covering his trial in Jerusalem, she described Eichmann as less a cartoonish villain than a dull, remorseless, paper-pushing...
  • Raising the minimum wage is still a big mistake

    Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, as President Barack Obama urged in his State of the Union address last month, is as popular an idea as ever. It's also a worse idea than ever. Obama presented it as a way to help struggling families:...
  • Obama, the shrinking imperialist president

    Of all the time-honored failings for which we criticize sitting presidents -- by "we" I mean pundits, academics and other members of the chattering phylum -- two charges stand out: imperialism and shrinkage. Usually it's one or the other. When the...
  • Liberal students have a funny definition of 'diversity'

    Cancel the philosophy courses, people. Oh, and we're going to be shuttering the political science, religion and pre-law departments too. We'll keep some of the English and history folks on for a while longer, but they should probably keep their résumé...
  • Want an America that works? Innovate, don't regulate

    Down with stakeholders. The American Academy of Pediatrics has come out against affordable health care for kids. Retail medical clinics -- at drugstores, Walmarts, etc. -- are cropping up across the nation, thanks in part to the expected longer waiting...
