    Atone Deaf: President's Apology Lacks Action

    Barack Obama spent the first couple years of his presidency apologizing to other countries for America's past "wrongs." Yesterday, his apology tour finally made a stop at home. Boxed in by his tanking approval ratings, late-night beatings, and a Country Music Awards spoof that everyone's still talking about, the President offered a belated "sorry" ... (more)

    No Pain Gets Gain

    Politico's headline for today's pro-life pain debate is "Abortion Fight Returns to the Hill." But when did it ever leave? The two sides have been duking it out in for months as part of ObamaCare, budget funding, judicial nominees, even the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The problem isn't that abortion is back -- the problem ... (more)

    How the GOP Blue It in Virginia

    "You know what makes a good loser?" Ernest Hemingway once wrote. "Practice." And if you know anything about Virginia's gubernatorial race, then you understand that the real loser wasn't conservative Ken Cuccinelli. It was the Republican Party. Late last night, politicos clacked away at their computers, performing their own postmortems on a race ... (more)

    Greece Asks Court to Pray It Forward

    The U.S. Supreme Court has had its share of difficult cases lately -- but tomorrow's shouldn't be one of them. For the first time in 30 years, the justices will be hearing arguments in a case that could change the way Americans look at religious liberty forever. With the chisel of political correctness slowly chipping away at the First Amendment, ... (more)

    It's the ENDA the World as We Know It...

    Life hasn't exactly been rosy for the business community under this administration. First, the President's policies kept the economy in the tank. Then he strangled the financial and energy sectors by passing a health care law that's trampling employers' freedom and crushing their bottom lines. Now, as if those burdens weren't enough, the ...

    Crock of Ages: Sebelius Plays Ignorant on Abortion Funds

    If the White House told insurance execs to "keep quiet" about ObamaCare, they certainly listened when it came to abortion coverage. Yesterday, even the boss of the entire system, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, managed a surprised expression when Congressman John Shimkus (R-Ill.) asked her why the agency was hiding coverage details from pro-lifers. ...

    Revenge is Tweet, Say Pro-lifers

    People may be losing their coverage under ObamaCare, but abortion certainly isn't. For more than two million Americans, a routine trip to the mailbox is turning into a health care nightmare, as cancellation notices flood homes that took President Obama at his word that they could keep their health care plans. For as many as 16 million people, ... (more)

    ObamaCare: Better Never Than Late

    Americans have heard a lot of excuses about why the ObamaCare website doesn't work, but Secretary Sebelius's latest takes the cake. In her desperation, the HHS chief tried to turn the tables on Republicans, suggesting that the "political atmosphere" was somehow to blame for the website's faulty infrastructure. "Frankly," she said during a stopover ... (more)

    Sebelius: In the Line of Fire

    If there's one thing Americans have learned, it's that the ObamaCare rollout wasn't a technological hiccup, bug, or snafu. It wasn't a "glitch," any more than the Titanic was a glitch. This was a system-wide meltdown -- taking the federal government's reputation for incompetence to new heights. When Fox News polled voters this week, 60% said ... (more)

    There's No Such Thing as a Free Launch

    Elections are funny things. Nothing does more to improve Congress's hearing and stiffen members' spines than a routine trip to the ballot box. Like democracy's miracle cure, incumbents recover from their autonomy and start paying attention to their employer: voters. Next year's midterm elections are already having that effect on Democrats, who ... (more)
