     Who's to blame for the government shutdown? The voters.

     GOP is out of touch on the shutdown, debt ceiling

  • Grow up, Congress

    Grow up, Congress

  • Democrats are to blame for the government shutdown

     Democrats are to blame for the government shutdown
    It's no surprise that the liberal media and The Sun blame the government shutdown — or slim down — on Republicans, the tea party and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz ("Grow up, Congress," Oct. 14). But The Sun comes up short when it comes to facts...

    Military sexual assaults: reforms not dead yet
    Efforts to address the epidemic of sexual assaults in the military got a boost this week from unexpected quarters — the tea party wing of the Republican Party. Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas said they support legislation offered...
  • Warren and Cruz: principled or polarizing?

    Who is the face of American liberalism? Who is the face of American conservatism? In Washington politics and on social media these days, the king and queen of "base" politics are two freshman U.S senators — Texas' Ted Cruz for conservatives and...
  • Republicans and race

    Republicans and race
    One of the main obstacle facing the Republican Party in the 2014, 2016 and thereafter will be its desire to turn back the clock to a time when the majority of citizens who could vote were white. Commentator Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. claims that "Tea party...
