  • Obama's faith-based liberalism

    Obama's faith-based liberalism
    Rick Santorum's assertion that President Barack Obama's agenda is not about the quality of life or jobs but "some phony ideal. Some phony theology" may not be an appropriate characterization of his religious views. However, it is an accurate description...
  • Voting for the Republican, by default

    I sympathize with the letter Dovey Kahn wrote in today's Baltimore Sun ("Obama by default," Sept. 6). Just as some will hold their nose and vote for President Obama in 2012, I held my nose and voted for John McCain in 2008, and I'll likely be holding my...
  • Separation of church and state is as important for ministers as it is for politicians

    Separation of church and state is as important for ministers as it is for politicians
    It was said of Al Smith, a Roman Catholic, that if he won the 1928 presidential election he would take orders from the Vatican and not uphold the Constitution. John F. Kennedy famously confronted that anti-Catholic prejudice in a 1960 speech to the...
  • Leonard Pitts: Benefits of torture come at too high a price

    Leonard Pitts: Benefits of torture come at too high a price
    "I would find myself trussed up and left for hours in ropes, my biceps bound tightly with several loops to cut off my circulation and the end of the rope cinched behind my back, pulling my shoulders and elbows unnaturally close together. It was incredibly...
  • A growing religious tolerance in U.S. politics

    A growing religious tolerance in U.S. politics
    Of the 44 U.S. presidents, all but a handful have been affiliated with a relatively narrow list of traditional Protestant denominations. Eleven were Episcopalians (12 if you count Thomas Jefferson, whose adult beliefs are a subject of debate), eight were...
  • Toeing the party line

    Toeing the party line
    The event was pegged as the first major debate among GOP presidential hopefuls in 2012, but Monday night's gathering turned out to be less a clash of competing ideas than a rote recital of hoary political nostrums that Republican primary voters have...
  • Sun election coverage not so super

    I am mystified. The Sun's front-page coverage of Super Tuesday was a masterful effort to frustrate the reader ("Voters give a mixture of wins," March 7). The importance of the primary warranted only 1/8th of a page, and the small photo was of Mitt...
  • Romney's limited victories

    Romney's limited victories
    After winning six Super Tuesday state contests -- the primaries in Ohio, Massachusetts, Vermont and Virginia, and the Idaho and Alaska caucuses -- Mitt Romney has reason to crow. Instead, he may be asking himself: If this is victory, what must defeat feel...
  • Mitt the inevitable

    Mitt the inevitable
    One can hardly blame Mitt Romney and his supporters for suggesting that it's time for his GOP opponents to step aside. Although his victories on Super Tuesday were not as decisive as he might have liked, with about half the delegates committed so far...
  • Why the GOP primary isn't like Obama vs. Clinton in '08

    Why the GOP primary isn't like Obama vs. Clinton in '08
    Republican wishful thinkers like to rationalize away the damage being inflicted on their party by the intramural mudslinging among its unimpressive field of presidential candidates. After all, they note, in 2008 Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary...
  • Obama to visit Maryland, discuss energy

    President Barack Obama will visit Largo on Thursday to give an address on American energy, White House officials said Monday. The address comes at a critical time, when economists say rising gasoline prices are dragging on the nation’s economic...
  • Bartlett to skip GOP convention

    Bartlett to skip GOP convention
    Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett has become the latest incumbent in Congress to announce he will skip his party's national convention this year to spend time campaigning for reelection, drawing a contrast with other state Republicans as well as his Democratic...
