Could it be that President Barack Obama's best chance for re-election in November is ... Mitt Romney?
The dismal state of the economy, and especially the stagnant high unemployment rate, clearly are red flags for Mr. Obama's hopes of retaining the...

For Larry King, the death of Osama bin Laden provided an awakening.
The veteran talk show host had been nudged toward the door by CNN in 2010 after 25 years of interviewing such titans as Frank Sinatra, Tom Cruise and Barack Obama. After that, King had...

I am sure Fox News will take some flak for naming the Navy SEAL who wrote about the killing of Osama bin Laden under a pseudonym.
It's already getting pretty heavy on Twitter following a tweet from Richard Engel, NBC's foreign correspondent, saying:...

In President Barack Obama's much-anticipated acceptance speech in Charlotte, he sounded at times to be relying on the reverse of the old breakup line: "It's not you, it's me." He told the American public that it is "you," and not he as president, who must...
