    12 hrs ago | Washington Times

    To suggest that President Obama and his managers downplayed the president's lifelong hostility to the private ownership of firearms during his 2012 re-election campaign is an understatement.

    It's one of Donald Trump's favorite lines: When he's president, he tells rally crowds, America will win so much, the nation will get "tired of winning." The presumptive nominee himself has been on a bit of a winning streak lately.

    In any other year, it would be the height of irresponsibility: a governor vowing to sit out a crucial presidential vote, setting a lousy example for his state's voters, present and future. But in this crazy-scary election year, Charlie Baker's assertion that he cannot cast a ballot for his party's nominee qualifies as an act of courage.

    On a cold Saturday morning in February, more than 50 Harvard College Democrats bussed up to New Hampshire to rally support for their preferred candidate ahead of the state's first-in-the-nation primary.

    The calendar has flipped to 2016, and we are just a few weeks away from the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire Primary and that final mad dash toward picking two candidates for president. And the two biggest surprises in American politics remain Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump - Sanders, because he still has a shot a winning the Democratic nomination, and Trump, because he remains the Republican front-runner.

    Jan 17, 2013 | American Reporter

    Some conservatives in Congress are outraged over the idea that the Obama Administration could thwart their plans to threaten blow up the economy if the President doesn't approve steep cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. But there are a few conservatives who remember who won last November's presidential election and are willing to take President Obama at his word when he said that he's not going to negotiate with the Republican leadership in Congress who want to link a vote on the federal debt ceiling to making those cuts in social welfare spending.

    Dec 28, 2012 | American Reporter

    As someone who has been following politics since I've been able to read, I believe that the 2012 presidential campaign will go down into the history books as an perfect example of how an incumbent can win re-election despite all the conventional wisdom that states otherwise. A list of those shibboleths may find value somewhere.

    Oct 24, 2012 | American Reporter

    I think it is safe to call George McGovern the last Democrat. The former Democratic senator from South Dakota who died Sunday at the age of 90 certainly was the last truly liberal candidate the Democratic Party nominated for president.

    Jun 28, 2012 | American Reporter

    Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act, Vermont is plowing ahead with its efforts to establish a system of single-payer state health care where every resident will eventually be eligible for publicly-funded coverage. The program known as Green Mountain Care is still very much a work in progress and, at best, it will take another five or six years to fully fund and implement this system.
