Cohen: For Obama, the wages of doing nothing

Whose fault is the current debacle in Iraq? It could be Nouri al-Maliki's since he is the country's strongman and has alienated the minority Sunnis. It could be George W. Bush's because he started the whole thing off with possibly the stupidest war in history, the Children's Crusade exempted on account of youth. The one person who is not at fault, we are told over and over again, is the current president of the United States. Like Millard Fillmore, he has kept us out of war.

Holt: Talking with the ‘bogeyman’

This week, let's talk about the folks who are, at least in many minds, the great legislative "bogeyman" - that is, lobbyists! These are the presumably dapper, silver-tongued devils who are protecting something we talked about last week - interest. How insidiously un-American!! …Oops! I quickly realized that if we truly believe in freedom of speech, then everyone has a right to protect their interests by petitioning their government and that doing so is America's real national pastime.

Only BO knows what made Bergdahl so important

On Tuesday, June 3, I wrote: "Obama is a man on the ropes. He is coming more unhinged. Only a person with deep-seated emotional instability makes the public displays he does. Only a person teetering on the brink of emotional collapse continues to make fallacious statements and then attempts to downplay them by claiming even greater lies."
