Joe Barton Apologizes to Tony Hayward: A comb becomes bad when it hurts you.

Common sense in American politics is rare. The obsession to go against the White House, no matter what, is a bad strategy for the GOP. The apology of Republican Rep. Joe Barton to BP CEO Tony Hayward confirmed the same old obstructionist mind. Joe Barton may speak for himself, but he belongs to the GOP. The BP […]

Despite multiple obstacles, the House Democratics have passed the health care reform bill. This is a major political victory for President Barack Obama. The president has inherited many problems. He is facing a lot of difficulties against an opposition party who has chosen to deliberately sabotage his leadership rather than to put the country first. […]

Jim Bunning Blocks Unemployment Benefits Extension: It is more fun doing evil than putting it right.

For a second time, U.S. Senator Jim Bunning has blocked the extension of unemployment and health insurance benefits. This case confirms again the weakness of the Senate rules.

President Obama has spoken to the nation about his strategy for winning the war in Afghanistan. He’s sending more troops to Afghanistan despite criticism from his own party and supporters. The time line for the new mission seems to worry many. Are we having a short memory that this war started eight years ago? So […]

President Obama welcomed Indian leader Singh to the White House on Tuesday in what is the first state visit of his presidency. The US is friends with both India and Pakistan, two enemy brothers. In their speeches, both leaders seemed to choose carefully their words. India is a rising power, an economic partner to the […]

The best way to eat the elephant standing in your path is to cut it up into little pieces.

The world is watching what is going on in Iran, powerless to stop it. It is frustrating to see a young woman on the ground, bleeding and dying, and people being shot. The more violent the terrorists — in this case, the Iranian police and revolutionary guard — the more determined the people are. Riot […]

A donkey always says thank you with a kick.

America is outraged about the AIG executive bonuses. The people’s reaction is understandable. When I think back about those who were against the bailout, I couldn’t understand–as a foreigner–why the opposition. But, now I see it. This type of behavior is basically an insult to someone who is rescuing you. It is difficult to comprehend. […]

Conservative activists on Saturday named former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney the winner of a poll for best 2012 GOP presidential candidate. Bobby Jindal, the new star of the Republican party, came in second place — but ahead of Sarah Palin. Even though this poll doesn’t mean anything, it shows that the Republican party is still […]

Work is the medicine for poverty.

The economy is still the dominant topic right now. Today President Obama looked more like candidate Obama from the election. I am not sure if President Obama has learned yet that he cannot count on the GOP to build a bipartisan coalition to resolve the amazing challenges that the U.S. is facing. Why doesn’t the […]
