  • An election with a message

    An election with a message
    While is it generally unwise to read too much into local elections from a handful of states, Tuesday's results produced a message writ too large to ignore. If Republicans want to win over swing voters, they'll need to produce candidates more like New...

     Disappointed by Andy Harris

    No way to run a government: Reflections on the latest D.C. debacle
    My conclusions about the latest mess in Washington, for your consumption: •The GOP lost: Yes, Obamacare is a predictably unruly mess. It consists of many bad ideas (and a few good ones) wrapped into an enormously expensive partisan missile...
  • Can Republicans do the expedient thing on immigration?

    Can Republicans do the expedient thing on immigration?
    President Barack Obama renewed his call to Congress last week for passage of comprehensive immigration reform legislation that would "grow the economy and shrink our deficits" as well as strengthen border security, modernize the visa system and offer a...
  • The canceled policies flap

    The canceled policies flap
    Here's the latest attack on health care reform in a nutshell: In recent weeks, health insurance companies are sending out hundreds of thousands of letters of policy cancellation. Isn't that a direct contradiction to President Barack Obama's repeated...
  • Obamacare and the tea party

     Obamacare and the tea party
    Political parties delight when there are rifts within their opponent's ranks. As a member of the tea party, I've been verbally attacked by everyone from President Barack Obama to the friends with whom I work. The Democrats rolled out an enormous...

    Reflect on, don't fetishize, the past [Commentary]
    Around the holidays, I usually write a year-end review column. Highlights and lowlights from Maryland or American politics and culture — that sort of thing. But this year, as we pass from 2013 into 2014, I want to try something a little different....

    Few signs of compromise
    While it's not uncommon for any negotiation to begin with a degree of doubt, it's difficult to imagine any launched with as little optimism as accompanied the opening last week of federal budget talks. That President Barack Obama could possibly still be...
  • Obamacare debacle fuels another race to the bottom

    The more I hear from our beleaguered Explainer-in-Chief, his apologists and the strident opponents of Obamacare on the far right — pretty much the whole lot of American noisemakers these days — the more I sense the bottom approaching again....
