Bomb Mexico?

Sometimes it's hard to tell whether a politician is crazy or just joking. The problem is usually that no one is laughing. Such was the case recently when two candidates offered a radical solution to the humanitarian crisis on the Texas border: Bomb Mexico. Serious or not, it shows how far the anti-immigrant tide has carried some politicians from realistically addressing border security and immigration reform.

Democrats Will Never Fix Obamacare

"If you like your health plan, you can keep it" was last year's Lie of the Year. When millions of cancellations stacked up, the game of make-believe was over.

More than a Military Response Required to Beat ISIS

As ISIS appears to be gaining ground in Iraq, there seems to be a lack of a grand strategy coming out of the White House.

The United States must think more comprehensively than a military intervention.

Christie’s Big Problem isn’t the Bridge, it’s the Economy

On the long road to 2016, Chris Christie would be well advised to remember the 1992 Clinton adage, "It's the economy, stupid." Because it's the Jersey economy - not the bridge scandal - that's likely to dog his nascent steps toward the GOP nomination.

Gillibrand Is Offside

Politicians write books to establish bona fides, earn money, or posit for higher office. A new one by Kirsten Gillibrand, the popular Democratic senator from New York who once had an A rating from the NRA, seems to have the unintended consequence of shooting its author in the foot.
