Remember that Nancy Pelosi told us that we needed to pass ObamaCare to find out what’s in it.  Barack Obama promised to “bend the cost curve,” too.  Looks like both of them were right, at least according to the Paper of Record, which

Today may have been the day for which John Brennan had hoped since first joining Barack Obama’s team four years ago, but it’s not likely to be much remembered for him.  First considered to run the CIA but dropped because of protests on

The eventual completion of the full-length Keystone XL pipeline seems more and more like an inevitability for the Obama administration, as it continues to clear bureaucratic hurdles and TransCanada proposes new routes to work with and not against the

It’s a conversation which seem to keep coming up year after year. Has the “war on drugs” been a complete bust? (If you’ll pardon the pun.) After more than forty years it seems like an increasing chorus of voices are calling for a

It’s still not official official but it’s looking more and more like it’s sort of kind of official at this point. Having backed down on Susan Rice, the President isn’t in the mood to be kicked around anymore and he’s going
