    Rick Perry: And so, TV news begins the takedown of a new GOP candidate
    There is no media process more fascinating to watch this week than the one unfolding around Texas Gov. Rick Perry, the newest GOP presidential candidate. The process involves network news and cable channels trying to take the candidate down a peg --...
  • Columnists Mossburg and Zurawik should swap duties

    Maybe you should let Marta Mossburg and David Zurawik switch places. Her over-the-top paranoid column today about kids television ("Children's TV: last bastion for liberal utopia," Aug. 17) is certainly more of a review of television than David Zurawik'...
  • Rick Perry is no Ron Paul

    Thrilled as I was with Texas Rep. Ron Paul's good showing as a truly constitutional candidate in the Iowa straw poll, I am concerned that Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be seen in the same light. Granted, Governor Perry is the top elected official of a...
  • GOP presidential field outdoes itself again and again

    GOP presidential field outdoes itself again and again
    Well, it's about time. At last we have a candidate with the guts to close down our embassy in Iran were she elected president. Thank you, Michele Bachmann. Oh — and thank you Jimmy Carter as well, since he closed down the embassy there in 1980 in...
  • If you think the GOP primary is a circus, remember the Democrats in 2008

    I find Steven P. Grossman's commentary amusing ("GOP presidential field outdoes itself," Nov. 6). Mr. Grossman takes great delight in mocking the field of Republican presidential nominees. That's not the amusing part. The fun part is looking at the...
  • On illegal immigration, GOP voters smarter than candidates

    On illegal immigration, GOP voters smarter than candidates
    "I believe in the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots and lived here, even though some time back they may have entered illegally." That was Ronald Reagan speaking during his 1984 reelection campaign. After that election, he stuck to his...
  • Gingrich isn't Scrooge; he's a closet progressive

    Gingrich isn't Scrooge; he's a closet progressive
    Newt Gingrich wants to pay poor kids to clean toilets. And all of the right people are horrified. The Nation says Mr. Gingrich is running on "a platform that seems to have been written by the unreformed Ebenezer Scrooge." The editors of the Newark Star-...
  • Rick Perry: Is the press being fair and accurate in its coverage of him?

    Rick Perry: Is the press being fair and accurate in its coverage of him?
    I doubt this modest request will be heard over the fevered roar for the scalp of Texas Gov. Rick Perry that the media has been sounding since he announced his candidacy for president. There is almost a palpable bloodlust to bring this guy down -- and it...
  • The one headache Obama doesn't have

    The one headache Obama doesn't have
    Considering all the political woes that have besieged Barack Obama in the third year of his presidency — including the disappointment in him many liberal Democrats have loudly expressed — you might expect he'd have a challenge by now for the...
  • Political impact of 9/11 fades

    At a town hall meeting in Catonsville last week, Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin spent a half-hour answering questions, including whether Congress would cut Medicare, address immigration or impeach President Barack Obama. Despite the breadth of the discussion,...
  • Md., Va. governors compete nationally, but play nice at home

    Md., Va. governors compete nationally, but play nice at home
    Republican Gov. Robert McDonnell of Virginia made no secret about who he thought should win Maryland's 2010 gubernatorial campaign. It wasn't Martin O'Malley. Yet two months after O'Malley, a Democrat, sailed to victory, McDonnell showed up in...
  • For GOP voters, a $10,000 question

    For GOP voters, a $10,000 question
    Here's another $10,000 wager for which Mitt Romney won't find many takers: We bet the public is disappointed with the choices for president of the United States in 2012. That's a pretty remarkable circumstance given that the general election is still...
