Border security is a key sticking point in this year's immigration debate, but only a little more than one-third of senators have been to the southwestern border during their time in office to get a firsthand look at the security situation, according to a survey of the chamber's members by The Washington Times.
A national group that focuses on electing pro-choice women to office launched a "Madam President" campaign Thursday that aims to put the first woman in the White House — an effort that coincides with a poll showing Hillary Rodham Clinton as the overwhelmingly favorite to win the Democratic nomination in 2016.
There have been two terrorist attacks on the United States in less than a year. The fact that they happened is frightening to many Americans, but that is not all that is frightening. In many ways, the reaction of government officials to the attacks was also troubling. It was the same for both attacks.

A group of top congressional Republicans on Tuesday introduced a bill that would require the Homeland Security Department to come up with a way to measure how secure the borders are — at a time when the Obama administration has been resisting those efforts.
Sorry, Mr. Lincoln, but "a government of the people, by the people, and for the people" has just perished, made amply clear by the secret dealings of the collusive "Gang of Eight" that is about to force an amnesty plan down the unwilling people's throats ("Immigration agreement 'very close' in Congress; guest workers still a hurdle," Web, Wednesday).
It was the trash that first drew Roger Barnett's attention.
Roger Barnett began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 after they started to vandalize his property — destroying water pumps, killing calves, vandalizing fences and gates, stealing trucks and breaking into his house.
