My recent comments concerning the problems that might take place when "Ebola meets the flu season" became all the more serious when America learned that two health care employees who attended to a patient in Dallas are now infected as well.
Let's get one thing straight. The many who have contracted the Ebola virus, and who tragically have suffered and died from it, deserve nothing but our sympathy and prayers.
News cycles come and go. And with lapses in Secret Service protection for President Obama and the first appearance of the Ebola virus in the U.S., it seems like ages ago since protesters were clashing with police in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri.
Just last year, it looked like former-Republican-governor-turned-independent-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist was a cinch to defeat incumbent GOP Gov. Rick Scott in his reelection bid
Wall Street was more than willing to endure the Federal Reserve Board's announcement Wednesday that it would end the monetary equivalence of "crack cocaine" by ending its longstanding "QE" program designed to pump liquidity into the economy.
As the notorious movement/terrorist group/would-be-nation ISIS moves swiftly on its course of conquest and destruction, the White House has begun referring to this most dangerous of organizations instead as ISIL.
There is growing optimism among Republicans that the GOP will take majority control of the Senate following the November elections. And yes, the likelihood is increasing that they could be right. But there's a wrinkle: It could be weeks or even months after the Nov. 4 elections before majority control of the Senate is decided.
If memory serves me, I have to write some variation of this column every election cycle.
The details about the death of Michael Brown and the actions of the Ferguson, Missouri, policeman who shot him remain very much at issue.
The South remains a bit of a mystery to most political pundits and pollsters. Many of its metropolitan areas are far more sophisticated (and much larger) than the rest of the nation realizes. And some areas of the rural South seem frozen in the 1960s. But to stereotype any one area of the region is a dangerous thing.
Gingrich and his fellow Republicans pushed Clinton toward welfare reform, a cut in the capital gains tax, and a temporary promise that "the era of big government" was over.
With every word spoken and every roll of his eyes, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry makes it clear that the Obama administration is no fan of Israel. So why is it that media will not call the White House on this major shift in American foreign policy?
As of late July, we see major conflicts that have flared up in Iraq, the Ukraine and in the ongoing escalating attack on Israel. New home sales remain mediocre.
Most of the battles to determine Republican nominees in the GOP's quest to take control of the U.S. Senate this year have been decided.
Not long ago, Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott had been written off as politically dead. Just several months back, the incumbent Scott trailed in the polls to Democrat Charlie Crist.
In past columns, I've mentioned some teachers and professors that I've known who bluntly said that Ronald Reagan was the nation's worst president.
The new theme that conservatives and Republicans will start to read and hear about in the coming months will be that the GOP is so terribly divided that it won't be able to win critical races for control of the U.S. Senate in November.
Let's make this clear: Barack Obama is not responsible for the Federal Trademark Trial and Appeal Board's decision to cancel certain trademark protections related to the NFL's Washington Redskins, due to the "disparaging" nature of the word 'Redskins.' But is symbolic of a government so off course that it defies belief.
Most political observers were caught flat-footed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's blowout defeat by upstart David Brat in the Virginia Republican primary. I was one of them.
The Republican U.S. Senate primary race in Mississippi between Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel has been portrayed as a battle of the traditional Republicans versus the insurgent Tea Party. It ended in a virtual draw. There will be a runoff. But even that won't establish the "trend" that so many believe they see.
