Congress should cut Food Stamps

When House Republicans voted to cut the food stamp program by $39 billion over the next decade, Democrats charged GOP cruelty. Strategist Donna Brazile wrote that the move was a "heartless act," not "an example of government tightening its belt or making tough choices."

Bowel Changes Can Signal Underlying Illness

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a question regarding my stool. It is not normal, but is in pieces, which are small and sometimes elongated. I am in no pain or discomfort. I have not lost weight or changed my eating habits. It started about a year ago. I had a colonoscopy six months ago. Everything was OK. I am a female, 64 years old. I have been eating a lot of whole wheat and lots of vegetables and fruits.

Wasting time targeting Obamacare

With the latest vote to defend the Affordable Care Act, the House GOP is looking more and more like the Washington Generals, the hapless "opponents" who stood on the court as a foil for the slick, stylish and talented Harlem Globetrotters.

Non-Germane President Obama

One of the biggest mistakes President Obama is making in the current debate over the threat of a government shutdown and the failure to raise the debt ceiling is his repeated and stubborn refusal to negotiate . In speech after speech, Obama crusades against negotiation. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? He's the president. Supposedly, he's the chief executive. But Obama doesn't want to dirty his hands by talking to Republican congressional leaders.

Newtown amnesia in Hollywood

After the Newtown school shooting, commentators on the Left expressed outrage that gun-rights groups were exploiting the attack to build membership in the wake of all the liberal demands for a federal crackdown on gun owners. Nine months later, they're curiously silent as Rupert Murdoch's cable network FX milks a fictional Catholic-school shooting for commercial gain.

Using animals to defend tar sands oil

Both the old and new media agree on is this: If you need a story that's guaranteed to be popular, go with animals. Cute kittens, puppies, porpoises, penguins, and polar bears are all a good bet.

Another set of gun lessons

While details are still emerging about Aaron Alexis, the man responsible for killing 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard, this much is already clear. This man never should have had a security clearance that allowed him to enter the Yard. And he never should have been permitted to buy a gun.

Obama, spiked for his own good?

President Obama barely noticed, but there was a horrific mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday. In what has become a signature of this administration, a tone-deaf Obama pressed ahead with his plans to attack the tea party Republicans at an event marking five years since the financial crisis erupted.

Obama’s feckless saber-rattling

Sen. Barbara Boxer had been appealing to my better instincts as she never had before. The Democrat from California provided a crucial vote in favor of a resolution sought by President Barack Obama to authorize the use of military force in Syria. Boxer voted for military force even though that position was highly unpopular among her constituents.

Willie Brown Bridge is falling down

The California Legislature pointed a giant middle finger at Bay Area commuters by naming the western span of the Bay Bridge after San Francisco Chronicle columnist Willie Brown even though, as San Francisco's mayor, Brown unconscionably delayed reconstruction of the seismically challenged eastern span and helped drive the project's cost from $1.5 billion to $6.4 billion?

Rules over politics at the Fed

When Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana announced last Friday that he would vote against Larry Summers' putative candidacy for Fed chairman if it came before the Senate Banking Committee, he put a dagger in Summers' Fed career before it even started. Tester would have made the fourth Democratic nay vote in the committee, and it is highly unlikely that Republicans would have taken up the slack to push through a Summers nomination.
