A 'wrongheaded' speech
Dive in just about anyplace you like in President Barack Obama's health-care speech the other night, and you bump into something abrasively wrongheaded, so much so that the whole thing can almost be summed up by Rep. Joe Wilson's shout: "Lie!" It was unquestionably out of line to...

Stop the stimulus
It was made out to be like one of those action movies in which the bomb is ticking, millions of people are in danger of being blown to smithereens, and James Bond or some other hero has just seconds to deactivate this complicated apparatus. The hero in this case was Barack Obama...

Pelosi 'dresses up' as Gore in China
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has figured out what to do when you get in deep political trouble at home. You dress up as Al Gore and go to China. The trouble has been well publicized. She was briefed by the CIA on waterboarding when it was first transpiring, did nothing to...

Time to put end to drug wars
For five years in the 1980s, I lived in El Paso, often crossing the Rio Grande to Juarez and always encountering charm and conviviality and, once, great hope. On that occasion, I witnessed a parade of candles held high as Mexican citizens in the city celebrated the breakthrough...

Watch out, the Food and Drug Administration may give you a cold
It was a mystery that had remained unsolved throughout history, but diligent, masterful scientists have now finally figured out a likely way to cure the common cold, leaving another, difficult task for others. That's how to persuade the federal government to back off sufficiently...

Daschle dashed, and some promises, too
It wasn't so long ago that Barack Obama was on the campaign trail, talking about hope and change, about the purity he would bring to Washington. A true believer could maybe imagine a movie musical and a melodious voice singing, "The hills are alive with the sound of music ...

The dangers of high-speed governing
