Cut taxes, Obama tells Congress in $450B jobs plan
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Attacking a deepening jobs crisis, President Barack Obama challenged a reluctant Congress Thursday night to urgently pass a larger-than-expected $450 billion plan to "jolt an economy that has stalled." He urged lawmakers to slash Social Security taxes for tens of...

Obama interrupts Hoeven's turkey pardoning
BISMARCK -- The fate of a 19-week-old turkey was left hanging in the balance Tuesday when Gov. John Hoeven had to leave his annual turkey pardon to take a phone call from President Barack Obama. Ironically, Hoeven had just talked about building the suspense for the pardon. "At...

The shattering of McChrystal
In one fundamental way, Gen. Stanley McChrystal never was Gen. Douglas MacArthur. But in another, he absolutely was. And with the lives of thousands of U.S. and NATO troops dependent on his judgment, that is why McChrystal, although an intellectually brilliant general, has just...

Obama and oil rig management
It has several variations, but there's an old military adage that goes roughly, "When in trouble, when in doubt, run around in circles, jump and shout." A Navy officer explained that just the appearance of energetic activity might buy you enough time to think up a real solution. President...

Vietnam something imagined
With their usual talent for towing icebergs into the path of their own Titanic, the Democrats have a problem. In Connecticut, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, a candidate for U.S. Senate who has long taken pride in his Vietnam service, is now revealed as a person who forgot to...

Great orator not necessarily great communicator
What with the Tea Party all the rage these days and angry voters seeming like the new norm, even Washington is anti-Washington. Incumbents are running scared (except for those too scared to run). And all Washington Insiders have urgent new insights (gleaned from a fact-finding drop-by...

Democrats send Obama final health measure
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congressional Democrats sent the final piece of landmark health care legislation to President Barack Obama before heading home to face a skeptical -- and sometimes even threatening -- electorate. The last legislative chapter in the wrenching national debate over...

Letter: Best wishes to Dorgan and remember to do right thing
I have to admit that the announcement of Sen. Byron Dorgan's decision not to seek re-election came as a complete surprise to me. Despite the reasons he gave for his decision not to run again, I think the real reason is that he saw the handwriting on the wall. He knew that by supporting...

Has Cheney forgotten 9/11?
The one halfway-good memory from those awful days immediately following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks was the spirit of national unity it triggered. As I wrote at the time, nothing focuses the mind like the knowledge that there's somebody out to kill you simply for being American. "We...

Obama persists as polls drop
President Barack Obama has so loaded up the policy circuits this month that you'd expect a government-wide blackout any minute. Still, in spite of declining approval ratings for him and most of his policies, he's decided to persist -- on Afghanistan, health care, jobs, climate change...

President Barack Obama's plan to do a one-day drop-by at the U.N. climate-change summit in Copenhagen has the makings of a public-relations gaffe. He will arrive early in the conference and depart for Oslo to pick up his Nobel Prize, but, as of now, there are no plans for him to...
