LAMBRO: Running on empty

There's a disconnect between the economy's relentless slowdown in the fourth year of Barack Obama's presidency and the sideshow issues he's raising on the campaign trail. Actually, "issues" is a gross exaggeration of the sleight-of-hand politics he's practicing right now in a desperate bid to save his presidency. Published May 1, 2012

LAMBRO: Reorganizing deck chairs on U.S. Titanic

President Obama's puny election-year plan to consolidate a handful of government agencies and programs is about three years and $4 trillion too late. With America's jobless rate stuck at a few tenths below 9 percent and his dismal job approval polls in the mid-40s - the equivalent of a failing grade - Mr. Obama is attempting to impersonate a budget cutter. He's fooling no one. Published January 17, 2012
