    Gingrich gets immigration right
    Newt Gingrich is the standard bearer for traditional family values within the Republican party? As unlikely as that might seem given the former House Speaker's history of marital infidelities and messy divorce, it's apparent he may be the only GOP...

    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...

    Give pols a pass for verbal miscues
    My elementary school principal was fond of reminding his students that the last perfect person walked this Earth 2,000 years ago. (Note to the litigious types over at the ACLU: It was permissible to provide such insight in light of the school's...
  • 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...
  • The federalist solution

    The federalist solution
    The bleating about broken government and partisanship continues. "Why can't those boobs in Washington agree on anything?" We're constantly told that the way to fix the country is to dethrone the left and right and empower the middle. Americans Elect, No...
  • Editorial: Primary picks

    Early voting has begun and the official primary election in Harford County is Tuesday, April 3, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and there's a lot of talk about politics this season because it's a presidential election year. Those who vote in the Democratic and...

    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-...
  • What we should be asking the candidates

    What we should be asking the candidates
    The questions routinely asked of our presidential candidates are insufficient for assessing their potential ability to lead the nation. The following questions are based on my studies of the leadership style of recent presidents. The candidates' responses...
  • Romney consistent on cabinet cutbacks

    Mitt Romney has been accused of revealing something in a hot-mike moment that perhaps he didn't want to reveal ("Dems: 'What's Mitt hiding?" April 17). I understand the desire on the part of the Democrats and The Sun to catch Mr. Romney in a similar...
