Column: The United States of Trump
WASHINGTON — “It’s very close to my heart because I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down, and I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.” — Donald Trump, April 18 May...

Column: Cruz less dangerous than Trump
WASHINGTON — As Donald Trump stumbles in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, one group has been sorely disappointed by his belated display of weakness: Democratic operatives, who had been hoping fondly to run against him in November. Democrats’ delight at the prospect...

Column: GOP's Benghazi report right on time
WASHINGTON — Is Trey Gowdy planning a July surprise? The chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi went to ground after he and his colleagues grilled Hillary Clinton in October. They haven’t had a single hearing since then (and had only three public hearings before that one),...

Column: Fortune-cookie platitudes
WASHINGTON — Reince Priebus, the beleaguered and balding Republican National Committee chairman, was asked a few days ago about his mane. “How much gray hair do you think you’re going to have by December?” CNN’s Jake Tapper inquired. “Gray is fine,” the party boss...

Column: 2016 -- The reckless vs. the responsible
WASHINGTON — Free trade agreements “have been disastrous” for America, the candidate said, and have sent jobs to Mexico and China. “I will stop it by renegotiating all of the trade agreements that we have.” It sounded like just another threat from Donald Trump to tear up...

Column: Sanders losing pillow fight with Clinton
WASHINGTON — The 19th century had the Lincoln-Douglas debates. The 20th century brought Kennedy-Nixon. And now we have just experienced a forensic masterpiece to define our times: the Clinton-Sanders Debate Debate. This particular rhetorical showdown was not a back-and-forth about...

Column: Trump's many bigoted supporters
WASHINGTON — In a Republican debate last month, Donald Trump was asked whether his claim that “Islam hates us” means all 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide hate the United States. “I mean a lot of ‘em,” Trump replied, as some in the crowd — Trump supporters, presumably —...

Column: The conservative thinking that caused Flint's water crisis
WASHINGTON — In a hearing this week about the poisonous water in Flint, Michigan, Rep. Buddy Carter (R-Ga.) tried to blame the lead-tainted water on the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy explained that, under the law Congress...

Column: Marco Rubio's honorable finale
WEST MIAMI, Fla. — It was not supposed to end like this for Marco Rubio. Eleven months ago, he launched his presidential campaign in front of Miami’s Freedom Tower, the Ellis Island for his and other Cuban families. In his rapid rise, young Rubio had been a darling of both the...

Column: Republicans' mindless obstructionism
WASHINGTON — It has been an annual rite in Washington since the modern budgeting system began in 1974: The president sends his budget to Congress and lawmakers hold hearings on it. But not this year. The chairmen of the House and Senate budget committees announced, for the first...

Column: Don't blame the media for Trump
WASHINGTON — For nine months, Republican leaders refused to take on Donald Trump when it would have done some good. Now that it may be too late, they’re blaming their own failures on the media. “The media’s pumping him up,” Marco Rubio complained. The Republican presidential...

Column: Trump's flirtation with fascism
WASHINGTON — So it has come to this: The front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, at a campaign rally Saturday in Orlando, leading supporters in what looked very much like a fascist salute. “Can I have a pledge? A swearing?” Trump asked, raising his right hand...

Column: A running mate for Clinton
WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton has a knack for turning triumph into tedium. On the night of Super Tuesday, after her wins all but guaranteed her the Democratic presidential nomination, she served up a victory speech that was a bowl of mush. “We know we’ve got work to do, but that...

Column: Too satisfied to feel the Bern
WASHINGTON — Why did Bernie Sanders fail? Sanders continues his campaign after his Super Tuesday losses, but he has no real chance of wresting the Democratic presidential nomination from Hillary Clinton. The socialist insurgent went further than most thought possible, drawing huge...

Column: Democrats answer to GOP court farce
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans say they will refuse to have a hearing for President Obama’s nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy. So Democrats last Wednesday took matters into their own hands: They held a hearing all by themselves. A dozen members of the Senate minority...
