    The GOP is divided over 'Ex-Im' [Commentary]

    The increasing irrelevance of corporate nationality [Commentary]

  • The positives of negative ads [Commentary]

    The positives of negative ads [Commentary]
    There may be no more enigmatic concept in politics than negative campaigning. Virtually no one publicly supports it, almost every non-shoe-in political principal uses it, and almost no two people mean the same thing when they refer to it. Periodic...

    Victoria Jackson, not the sharpest mind in the Obama chorus [Commentary]
    Given the penchant of many of my fellow Americans to believe any preposterous spoof, spin or allegation that pops up on their computer screens -- I'm talking to you, Victoria Jackson! -- I want to make it perfectly clear that every statement in the next...

    TV talk missing 1980 Cuban context for Texas border crisis
    I can't believe how much talk about the Texas border crisis I've heard on cable news the last two weeks without any mention of the Mariel boatlift of 1980. This is textbook for what I mean about TV news -- from the network and cable level on down --...
