James Foley's Death Isn't Changing Views In Congress

WASHINGTON (AP) — For all its horror, the beheading of an American journalist in Syria appears unlikely to change lawmakers' minds about military intervention against Islamic State extremists. It's equally unclear whether the Obama administration will be asking them to back a new U.S. approach. President Barack Obama said the United States wouldn't scale back its military posture in Iraq in response to James Foley's killing. But he offered no spe ...

Despite President Obama's recent attempts to convince Americans he has turned our economy around, the truth is very different for middle-class families. As Peter Wehner notes in YG Network's Room To Grow, polling shows that twice as many Americans feel that "members of the middle class have less, rather than more, opportunity to get ahead than their parents' generation," while a strong, 59-percent majority ...

When Backing Pro-Gay GOPers Is Actually Something Nefarious

Aug 19 2014 10:30am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Yesterday there was a very puffy piece in USA Today about Paul Singer, the Republican hedge-fund billionaire who supports same-sex marriage (his son is gay) and founded a super PAC that has financially backed GOP politicians who voted for gay marriage in several states that passed marriage equality. The headline: "GOP Super PAC Plans Gay-Rights Push This Fall." Now, judging from that headline, if it were earlier in the primary season, I would have thought this super PAC ...

Obama Can Win a Huge Victory in the Fight on His Immigration Executive Orders... But Only If He Does It Right

Aug 17 2014 5:14pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

President Obama is soon to issue executive orders on immigration. To score a huge victory in the inevitable political battle, however, he has to orchestrate it. The president cannot rely on the popularity of his actions, or even the feeling that "something" is being done. He has to orchestrate it for maximum impact.

Poll: Hillary's Numbers Down vs. GOP Challengers

Aug 14 2014 12:03pm CDT | Source: Big Government

It seems the more people see of Hillary Clinton the less they like her. A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds Clinton has slipped below 50 percent support in hypothetical match-ups with Republican challengers. Asked who they would vote for if the 2016 election were held today, respondents gave Clinton 48 percent support versus all three top GOP contenders: Gov. Chris Christie (41%), Gov. Jeb Bush (41%) and Sen. Rand Paul (42%). This gap is much smaller than it was in similar p ...
