In speech at the National Press Club on Tuesday, New York’s senior Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer expressed regret over how Democrats handled their large majorities following the 2008 election in passing ObamaCare when they should have focused first on economic issues to address the recession.

Two cheers — and two cheers only — for the National Journal's Ron Fournier.

Media Whining Begins: 'Civil War Looms for the GOP'

October 31st, 2014 7:23 AM
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air ably announced that liberal reporters and analysts are breaking out the latest spin – that victory will be terrible for Republicans. I’d call it the Mary Tillotson special: after the GOP took the house in 1994, CNN’s Tillotson suggested this 52-seat landslide was bad news for 1996. Morrissey calls it “the media’s Sour Grapes Index, in which analysts posit that a big win…

So, Senator, will you agree to debate your opponent during the campaign? Hey, let me tell you about this sweet corn. It is so delicious that you can't eat just one ear.

Peter Beinart: ‘Hillary Does Learn From Her Mistakes...After the Dam

June 21st, 2014 8:46 PM
Hillary Clinton is not as complex as the universe, but she's Big and Important enough for Peter Beinart to call his 4,600-word National Journal piece on her hypothetical presidency "A Unified Theory of Hillary" and appear to mean it (mostly) seriously. The article deals more with Hillary's personality than with her ideology (for what it's worth, Beinart classifies Hillary, along…

Senior WH Official to Ron Fournier: VA Not Overhauled Because 'We Don

June 9th, 2014 10:00 PM
In a Monday National Journal column about how many Democrats are allegedly saying they have "quit" on Obama — claims I find quite hollow, given that no one asserting this has yet had the guts to go on the record — Ron Fournier quotes "a senior White House official" with a head-shaking take on the Veterans Administration scandal.
