In their embrace of absolute doctrine without regard to the facts on the ground, the anti-tax and pro-gun movements have contributed to the undermining of democratic society. Both stances refuse dialog and disdain compromise.
Congressional representatives like to keep their jobs. Since the common wisdom is that to challenge the policies of the NRA is tantamount to asking to be fired, did we really expect them to voluntarily give up their jobs? Would we do so?
Arianna appeared on "Morning Joe" Tuesday to discuss a range of topics with the panel. The group talked about the fruitless negotiations between t...
If Republicans refuse to negotiate from the White House proposal, they'll be refusing to negotiate with the electorate. They shouldn't feel insulted by that offer. The real insult -- the only that really must sting -- is the one voters just gave them at the polls
Just because there are no e-mails that are flatly incriminating, does this means that secrets weren't passed? What do men do to impress the women with whom they're involved? They show off. Can we be absolutely sure that Petraeus didn't say things to impress his paramour?
In our "after report," Reagan and Matalin discuss whether 2012 turned on Messina's GOTV or Obama's views on government and taxes? Did GOP lose because of messenger or message -- both? Or is it, as Chou en lai said of French Revolution, "too soon to tell?"

Political junkies among us can allow ourselves a brief moment to gloat at the court jesters whose contempt for our collective intelligence as the presidential campaign came to an end last night and who broke new ground in the realm of Chutzpah even as the votes were being counted.
If there is any solace in losing this race, it will come to those who support President Obama. Their future will come. It's inevitable. It just may take a little longer in getting here.
Although it was a great first step that Bob Schieffer even said the word "drone" and made Mitt Romney say it too, to let politicians merely answer the question at this level of abstraction -- "I support drone strikes, too" -- is to let them off the hook.
On Aug. 30, I began my day as I usually do by making a pot of espresso coffee and turning on MSNBC's Morning Joe. It was convention time in America. A...
At first blush, this question might seem a no-brainer. Elected to Congress in 1994 from the Florida panhandle as one of Newt's "Contract With America" foot soldiers, the host of MSNBC's Morning Joe labels himself a conservative.
