The news that Sens. Graham and McCain are joining with Mitch McConnell and Jon Kyl in support of repealing birthright citizenship, led me to conclude that the GOP has either taken leave either of its senses or of its principles.
The pro-life, pro-family Republicans are now pro-neonatal detention and deportation. It isn't enough to drive out the people not born here, now they want to drive out the ones that were.
A key task for ending the war - and preventing future wars, such as a future war with Iran for which the political groundwork is now being laid - is breaking the Republican political monolith in support of war.
During the 2008 campaign, it didn't seem that the Republican party could move further to the right on immigration. What it doesn't seem to understand is that the stakes on this issue are, politically, far greater than most.
The anti-immigrant right is capitalizing on a concept with old nativist roots that is lending new potency to the assault on Latino immigrants, demonizing babies as the weapon of choice for armies of "illegals."
As a veteran I find Pete's remarks misleading and unjustified. Kagan does not hate the military, but even if she despised it, does that make her incompetent to serve on our nations highest court?
Allowing China to devalue its currency devalues American workers and businesses. Chinese currency manipulation is driving American manufacturers out of business and America workers into unemployment.
The Tea Party can easily survive on blind hatred for responsive government, revulsion of shared responsibility, rampant misinformation and conspiracy theories. How do I know? Because it has for decades.
Surely, at this point, we have given enough blood, lives and treasure to achieve the unachievable. Our soldiers have suffered enough for an unattainable goal.
I am sure that Jonathan Alter's recent column in Newsweek, is as funny to the lobbyists of teacher unions as it is to me. The column is in fact not about Congress, but rather about Rep. David Obey (D-WI).
Lost in some of the controversy surrounding Steele's statements last week at an RNC fundraiser is the rather obvious nature of at least one thing he said, that the war in Afghanistan is "a war of Obama's choosing."
The all-important July 4th holiday has delayed this week's Top 5 Comedy Videos post. But now that that's over, we can get down to business.
As the residue of Steele's remarks starts washing up on beaches nationwide, some top Republicans have suggested hemming Steele in from now until Election Day with miles of sound-absorbent boom.
OPINION - The senatorial process of vetting Supreme Court candidates is about as close to Kabuki theater as we get in America. Elena Kagan did the ri...
Today's Republican Party is not a comfortable place for many classic Republicans. This is why I don't see someone like General David Petraeus easily saddling up to the Republican Party in his post-military, post-Afghanistan Eisenhoweresque rise.
The Kagan hearings, or any Supreme Court hearings for that matter, are part of the war to win over the hearts and minds of America, to determine what kind of country we want this to become.
