One of the oldest rules in psychology and economics is that if you reward a behavior, you can expect to see it more often.
Republicans were right about Obamacare and Democrats were wrong. Before Obamacare was passed, when Democrats were telling the public that it would make health care cheaper, better, and would cure cancer right after it makes your bed in the morning and cuts your grass, Republicans were pointing out the very flaws that the American people are bitterly complaining about today.
He's sending weapons to Libya to help repair America’s strained relationship with Al-Qaeda.
The total extent of your knowledge about the world before 1970 is that Hitler was a lot like George W. Bush.
Losing to Barack Obama in 2012 shook the confidence of many Republicans and it's easy to understand why. After all, if you lose to the worst President in history, what does that say about you?
It's frustrating enough that the Republican Party shoots itself in the foot over and over again, but it's particularly aggravating that the ones who do it always seem to think of themselves as the smartest people in the room. Well, if they're so smart and know what we have to do "to win," then why is it that they do so many selfish and stupid things? Even if you set ideology completely aside, how much sense does it make for Republicans to make elementary mistakes like...?
What's the point of having a President who learns about everything his administration is doing from the newspapers, just like everyone else? When do you start to ask, "Is this guy stupid or just dishonest?"

Whether you agree with Ted Cruz and Mike Lee (I do) or not, they had a strategy they wanted to pursue.
If you think every American should know these facts about Obamacare, do your part to spread this column around and make it happen.
The Death Panel will now decide if your treatment is too expensive.
Democrats thought shutting down the government was going to be the smartest decision they ever made, but it's looking more like Napoleon's march into Russia every day. For the first time in years, the Republicans sound like reasonable, principled adults who are willing to compromise to help the country. Meanwhile, Democrats are coming across like arrogant Lords telling the rest of the rabble in flyover country what rights they're willing to allow them to have. Just look at what the public has already learned about the Democrats from the shutdown.
There was a time in America when the first priority of our schools was educating our children.
We're a nation that was founded by principled revolutionaries who took on the super power of their day over almost insignificant taxes they felt Britain had no right to levy.
Defunding Obamacare is a great idea and I'm not just saying that because I was the first one to promote the concept in March of 2010.
College classrooms are supposed to be politically neutral, not indoctrination centers for liberalism. Yet, we have conservative parents who save money for decades to send their children to universities that teach everything conservatives believe is wrong.
