House Reading The Constitution

The tone that is being set on the second day of the 112th Congress might not get many flashy headlines but it has great meaning.

Wikileaks Investigation By Issa’s Committee

The handling of the Wikileaks case has been bungled from the start by Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama.

Nancy Pelosi Is Running For Minority Leader?!?

It is fitting that on the same day the Labor Department announced that the unemployment rate remained at a stagnant 9.6 percent, Nancy Pelosi also declared she will run for Minority Leader. The collective “ARGHHHHHH!” you hear is from the moderate Democrats who survived the Republican tsunami on Tuesday and will yet again have to […]
