Obama's Lavish Speaking Fee May Have Precedent, But It's Still Regrettable (Sun, 30 Apr 2017)
WASHINGTON--In collecting $400,000 from a Wall Street investment firm to make a single speech, Barack Obama is following in the Gucci-clad footsteps of past presidents. Ronald Reagan landed a $2 million speaking gig in Japan. George W. Bush, on his way out, announced it was time to "replenish the ol' coffers." Bill and Hillary Clinton reported making more than $235 million after leaving the White House. But to acknowledge that Obama has plenty of precedent on his side is not to say that his choice is wise. Indeed, it's unfortunate. Obama's propulsion onto the lecture circuit arrives at a...

The broader American public continues to award Trump historically low marks for his presidency, with his job approval at 43.1 percent in the RealClearPolitics average. Republicans,...

After 100 Days, These Things Will Stick (Fri, 28 Apr 2017)
It’s been quite a ride -- we’ll miss the Inauguration Day crowd pictures, the imaginary 3-5 million illegal votes, the wiretapping tweets, assertions that our government kills people just as the dictatorship of Vladimir Putin does, and the bold revelations that health care is complicated, NATO isn’t obsolete after all, and being president is a lot of work. President Trump, who produced a contract for the voter last October that outlined all that he would accomplish in his first 100 days, now feels the marker isn’t what it’s cracked up to be, since governing...
