President Obama and Democrats are getting a post-election bounce in their favorability ratings, but Republicans are essentially unchanged, according to the latest Gallup polling.
The White House fired back Thursday at Mitt Romney's claim that President Obama won the election by giving policy "gifts" such as free health care and contraception to targeted voting groups, arguing that the GOP nominee's explanation for his loss doesn't reflect reality.
The White House Thursday strongly condemned the barrage of rockets being launched into Israel from Gaza, denouncing them as "cowardly acts" perpetuated by Hamas.
From a workshop on whether Jesus' salvation would apply to aliens to determining the color of the feathers on a 150-million-year-old creature deemed the Earth's first bird, the Pentagon has spent money on some questionable projects, according to Sen. Tom Coburn.
Saying the Obama administration has refused to come clean about how it promoted the president's signature health care law, the chairman of a key House committee issued a subpoena Wednesday demanding that the Department of Health and Human Services explain whether taxpayer funds were used to put the Affordable Care Act in a positive light.
One day after Europe's climate chief suggested putting on hold a controversial plan to charge international airlines for their carbon emissions, the president of a top Middle East airline on Wednesday said his industry is an "easy target" for environmental regulators.
Ron Paul, who is leaving Congress next month after coming up short in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination earlier this year, made a plea for a more libertarian America today in his farewell speech on the floor of the U.S. House.
While House Speaker John A. Boehner's leadership post was never in doubt, that didn't stop one House Republican from trying Wednesday.
President Obama reacted angrily to threats from GOP senators to block an expected nomination of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to succeed Hillary Clinton as secretary of State because of Ms. Rice's statements in the aftermath of the attacks in Benghazi, calling the criticism of her "outrageous" and pledging not to change his decision-making based on them.
The war of words over Benghazi escalated Wednesday when President Obama told his critics to "go after me" rather than Ambassador Susan Rice. Those critics then said they would do exactly that.
Sen. John McCain said Wednesday he will do whatever he can to block Susan Rice if President Obama nominates her to head the State Department.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he will not allow changes in Social Security to be part of the negotiations to avoid a federal budget fiscal cliff, further narrowing the opportunities for savings that could be tapped to close the deficit.
The pro-secession requests flooding the White House website grew Tuesday as petitions on behalf of a dozen more states were added to the list.
House Democrats are using Republican Rep. Allen West's refusal to concede defeat in his re-election fight to help raise money for Democratic candidate Patrick Murphy in case Mr. Murphy's presumed slim victory in South Florida is challenged in the courts.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday that President Obama "has faith" in Gen. John Allen, the top military commander in charge of operations in Afghanistan, who is linked to an investigation of CIA Director David Petraeus' resignation.
