Mario Cuomo was not a total liar, and that's saying something

In all the stirring eulogies and remembrances leading up to the funeral of former New York Governor Mario Cuomo last week, his greatest contribution to American politics went entirely unheralded. All the fawning tributes and tearful, pearl-clutching accolades have failed to include the one single thing about Mario Cuomo that will forever set him far apart from all the rest of the politicians of his ilk.

Welcome to lawless Obama's America, hombres!

Just when President Obama thought it was safe to show his face in an American courtroom again, in walks John Wayne in a black robe to deliver one of the greatest legal beatdowns ever suffered by a sitting president.

Empty promises in wake of Ferguson

This was a tragedy that happened at the hands of Michael Brown himself. It happened at the hands of his parents who apparently failed to instill in him a respect for others. It happened at the hands of a society that failed to instill in him a respect for the law. It happened at the hands of an education system that failed to instill in Michael Brown that a box of Swisher Sweets is the reward for learning and hard work.

Ferguson riots are Obama's legacy

Now I realize that some in the media have taken grave exception to people referring to the riots in Ferguson as the "Ferguson riots." And I must say that I agree with them. They really are not the "Ferguson riots." They are the "Obama riots."

An open letter to Barack Obama

Dear President Obama: You are now staring into the exhausting, lonely abyss that is your final two years of a job you desperately wanted yet clearly never liked.

Democrats will win if Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid lose power Nov. 4

Poised to lose control of the Senate and give up even more seats in the House, Democrats in Congress will have no choice but to finally dump House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. This is good news for Democrats and any serious voters who consider themselves "progressives."

Mr. President, where is your soaring rhetoric now?

President Obama is about as popular on the campaign trail these days as the Ebola virus. Democrats flee from him. At the mere mention of his name, they betray him. Facing dejected and angry voters, Democrats play dumb and pretend they never supported him.

Rick Perry whiffs in President Obama's Ebola footsteps

Rick Perry could have sauntered onto the scene in his cowboy boots and slapped down the so-called Centers for Disease Control as incoherent, incompetent and failing to take the threat seriously enough. He could have shushed down President Obama, who is still unclear about whether you can catch Ebola or not by riding on a public bus with an infected person.
