  • Tea party and GOP should be ashamed

     Tea party and GOP should be ashamed
    Shame on you, Republican Party. And how dare you claim to speak for the American people. You do not speak for the poor, the elderly, the sick, the unemployed and underemployed, the victims of gun violence and the undocumented immigrants who are helping to...
  • Congress' approval rating matters

    Congress' approval rating matters<!-- span class="opinionlabel">[OPINION]</span -->
    Much has been made of Congress' dismal approval ratings. A Rasmussen poll this summer found they had dipped below 10 percent. Sen. John McCain noted that Congress is less liked than a colonoscopy. While such ratings may be grist for late-night TV humor,...
  • Get used to being watched

    Yesterday's mail brought a safety razor, a gift from those nice people at Gillette. I tried it out this morning, it is superior to my old one, and I will probably pay the extortionate price for replacement blades. But why, I wondered, were those nice...
  • Obama did blacks a disservice by playing the race card in the Trayvon Martin case

    Obama did blacks a disservice by playing the race card in the Trayvon Martin case
    Does anyone besides me get irritated at the hypocrisy and race-baiting that is made worse by articles like the one penned by Auset Marion Lewis ("A river of tears for all the Trayvons," July 16)? It belonged in a bad romance novel instead of a...
  • Obama has failed the nation

    Obama has failed the nation
    President Barack Obama should be ridiculed for his failure to do what he was hired to do — create jobs and lead the country out of its present mess which has gotten worse under his watch ("A minimum step forward," July 30). Instead, he chooses...
  • Social Security without permanent leader

    Social Security without permanent leader
    Six months after former Social Security Administration commissioner Michael J. Astrue left his post, the Obama administration has yet to nominate a replacement — leaving a leadership gap as the agency wrestles with shrinking budgets and hard...
  • Blame the Democratic Congress, not Bush, for the recession and deficit

    Blame the Democratic Congress, not Bush, for the recession and deficit
    I find it rather amusing when far left liberals such as Thomas Schaller ("GOP just can't say yes to Obama," Aug. 7) shout from the rooftops that former President George W. Bush is responsible for the horrendous deficit and economy that poor President...
  • Help for the jobless [Editorial]

    Help for the jobless  [Editorial]
    Senate Republicans blinked this week on the issue of unemployment benefits, but you can bet that their House counterparts won't be so easily swayed by compassion. At least that's what Democrats are counting on. After legislation to resume long-term...
  • Fixing the filibuster [Editorial]

    Fixing the filibuster  [Editorial]
    While there may be some bruised feelings and anger left behind in the aftermath, the so-called "nuclear option" unleashed Thursday by Senate Major Leader Harry Reid and the Democrats hardly seems worthy of its destructive billing. It means only that...
  • Republicans created the deficit

     Republicans created the deficit
    Contrary to letter writer Robert C. Erlandson's claim, Democrats are not responsible for the current deficit and interest payments of the national debt ("America needs more tea party 'extremists,'" Oct. 25). When President Bill Clinton left office there...
  • Common sense on Common Core [Editorial]

    As has long been his practice, Del. Pat McDonough, who represents Western Harford in the Maryland House of Delegates, recently made some rather prescient observations about education policy in Maryland and across the U.S. and then took the opportunity...
  • On dumping vice presidents

    On dumping vice presidents
    A new post-mortem account of the 2012 presidential campaign holds that President Obama's strategists toyed with, but rejected, the notion of dropping Vice President Joe Biden from the Democratic ticket and replacing him with then Secretary of State...
