From Crimea to Clearwater, Florida, the message is clear: every setback to U.S. or Democratic Party interests is Barack Obama's fault. I've been very disappointed in Barack Obama's presidency, but the relentless attacks on him from all sides are disconnected from reality.

Peter D. Rosenstein | Posted 04.06.2014 | Politics
Peter D. Rosenstein

This is the Hillary Clinton that Republicans are so afraid of. The leader who is so well versed on the issues that she can speak about complex topics, not speak down to people, yet still have them understand what she is talking about.

Maureen Dowd is Wrong About Reince Being Right

Andy Ostroy

As for Priebus, he should stop whining like a 12-year-old about what the so-called liberal media does or doesn't do for Hillary Clinton. Let him call Rupert Murdoch and ask Fox Television to make all the movies they want about the Republican candidates.

Hamna Zubair | Posted 10.07.2013 | Media
Hamna Zubair

Why, in an article that is largely about how Weiner's sext-addiction may damage his and his wife's standing with the Clintons, does Dowd feel the need to mention Huma Abedin's upbringing in Saudi Arabia?

Authors Can Be Trapped by TMI

Lev Raphael | Posted 07.14.2013 | Books
Lev Raphael

Some authors, begging for attention, even go overboard and live too much of their lives in social media, recording every twitch of consciousness as if the fate of publishing depended on it. Their neediness -- however disguised -- is epic and sometimes pathetic.

A Meaner (or Nicer) Obama Won't Change a Stubborn GOP

Keith Boykin | Posted 06.23.2013 | Politics
Keith Boykin
