A new GOP majority will be looking for creative policy proposals to differentiate themselves from President Obama. After years of being called a "do ...
All over the country, newspaper reviewers are wasting space reviewing George Bush's biography about his father. Whether they pan it or praise it, they'll say over and over, as Michiko Kakutani recently did in The New York Times, things like "he writes--" or "he says--" Does he?
I've never voted for a Republican in my life, but I'm tired of terrorism causing us never-ending wars and political paranoia at home. If it's a choice between Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul in 2016, I'm jettisoning many of my liberal values to vote for the Kentucky Senator.
Veterans Day 2014 was an unusual day for George W, Bush to publish a biography of his father, George H.W. Bush.
This Supreme Court is not really a court, but another branch dedicating itself to the Republican party's agenda. It is to the fair, balanced and logical application of justice what Fox News is to news.
Congratulations Republicans, you've won control of Congress. Now it's time to put down the talking points, stop your OCD obsession with ObamaCare and ...
While big donors like Tom Steyer and the Democratic Party insiders running Democratic-leaning outside spending groups might not be celebrating over it now, big money -- even losing big money -- matters in Washington.
The electorate that votes in midterm elections is older and whiter and looks more like the viewership of The O'Reilly Factor than anything that accurately reflects the true racial and ethnic diversity of this country.
Some liken the Republican victory to a giant wave. However, when compared to historical elections involving the houses of congress, this win is more like spilling a glass of water. The following elections are the worst defeats of either Democrats or Republicans in the last 100 years.
It is easy to say that leadership is needed. But that is not going to happen, at least for the next two years. There is however one solution.
To those Democrats who don't think this election is important enough for them to exercise their precious right to vote, especially African Americans, Latinos, the young, and women, you will only have yourselves to blame for what comes next. And, yes, it can get worse.
Latinos should send a message to Republicans: We won't support your failed policies, we won't abide by anti-Hispanic rhetoric, and we will always side with political forces that seek to build on the common good, not tear it down.
If President Obama loses the Senate on November 4, it will not be so much a mar on his presidential legacy as it will be a continuation of a recent two-term presidential tradition.
On wages, their rejection of even the concept of a minimum wage shows that Republicans don't care if employers engage in a race to the bottom. Five bucks an hour isn't good enough for you? They'll just find someone else. I thought we'd settled that question during the Great Depression.
Naturally, people -- especially in America -- live in the moment and, given the "crisis" orientation of cable news, think that this is the worst period the country has ever gone through. Not really.
