Taking legal advice from Joe Biden is dangerous, like taking his tips on home defense. The vice president who urges the ladies to deal with intruders by firing a shotgun at the dark now says there's no "legal problem" with imposing a violence tax on movies and video games.
Britain's Prince Harry saluted America's war dead in somber remembrance at Arlington National Cemetery on Friday, pausing, too, to place flowers on the tombstone of John F. Kennedy and visit the grave of a British World War II hero buried far from home.
Thousands of well-wishers and mourners gathered Wednesday at Massachusetts Institute of Technology for a memorial service for slain campus police officer Sean Collier.
Fifteen senators have a message for President Obama: The Defense Department spends $150 million a year on athletic shoes for our armed forces. Please makes sure that footwear is made in America, huh?
The president raged. The mayor of New York frothed. Joe Biden cried. But at the end of the day, common sense prevailed. The Senate killed the effort to unreasonably expand background checks for buyers of guns.
Slighting an old friend when there's a death in his family, sending a bouquet of wilted petunias by the chauffeur, is trashy behavior no matter who orders it.
It seems Barack and Michelle Obama, and Joe and Jill Biden are among America's common folk when it comes to donating goods to such great organizations as Goodwill and Fisher House.
Spring is in the air inside the nation's capital, and unfortunately so are some misleading statements from politicians.
Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, took in $26,400 in 2012 by renting a cottage on the property of their Delaware home to the Secret Service, tax records released by the White House revealed.
Fisker Automotive, the hybrid carmaker based in Anaheim, Calif., announced Friday that it would lay off 75 percent of its workforce, a sign the onetime darling of the “greens” is sputtering toward the end of the road. This story grows ever more familiar.
Not even Vice President Joe Biden, the barker of bonhomie who sees something good in just about any headline, can put a gloss on Friday's news: The economy created a net of only 88,000 jobs in March, not the 200,000 or so expected. Unemployment is "down" to 7.6 percent, but only because so many jobseekers have abandoned hope in the face of daunting odds.
Representing the United States abroad is a privilege and honor. Appointments should be chosen carefully; the billets can be challenging, if not perilous. The White House discovered this in Libya, when Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed last Sept. 11 by terrorists in Benghazi.
It's not as melodramatic or drastic as going on a hunger strike or chaining himself to the White House fence, but President Obama's "sequestering" 5 percent of his $400,000 salary — or $20,000 — during the period of fiscal restraint is a nice gesture.
Democratic governors with presidential aspirations have been tacking hard to the left, moving to legalize gay marriage and ban guns — and in the case of Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, ending capital punishment.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that there are times when an individual's rights should be infringed upon, and the Obama administration came under fire as the Supreme Court heard arguments in landmark gay marriage cases.
Participants in the session told Politico, the Capitol Hill daily, that Mr. Biden said there's "no restriction on the ability to do that; there's no legal reason why they couldn't."
"My mother, who believed passionately in this cause, would be proud of my association with HALO," he said.
