    IRS and union members attacked unjustly

  • The two Obamas

    The two Obamas

  • GOP can't help overreaching on Obama scandals

    GOP can't help overreaching on Obama scandals
    Well, that didn't take long. Just as several genuine scandals cast the Obama administration in an unfavorable light, Republicans in Congress are already overreaching — with hyperbolic comparisons to Watergate, calls for special prosecutors,...
  • Pain of sequestration is real

    Pain of sequestration is real
    Recently, some in the media have promoted the idea that the $85 billion sequestration cuts triggered on March 1 aren't causing drastic effects. CNN called the cuts "not as bad as advertised," and a Washington Post report found the cuts less "scary" than...

    Top item on Obama's agenda: damage control
