While nobody loves Mitt Romney, there are two groups who love Santorum's candidacy: The radical religious right…and liberals.
The more the Santorums of the world fight for the world of yesterday, the more they are being left out of the plans for tomorrow.
Speaker Boehner has signaled support for the payroll tax cut extension, but it doesn't address his problem: whether his own caucus will go along with him
With momentum in his favor, Obama needs to keep doing what he's doing: setting a trap for the GOP presidential hopefuls.
In Michael Lewis' Moneyball, The Oakland A's spent the least money per victory of any team, just as Rick Santorum has spent far less per vote and per delegate than Mitt Romney. But the A's also lose in the end.
As his tax records proved, Mitt Romney is good at making money. As his political fortunes show, he's not as good at spending it effectively.
Economic recovery is coming about without sweeping action from Washington. But little decisions along the way are helping, and bigger ones could do even more.
The Susan G. Komen foundation gave into a bully—the radical right, which is continuing its assault on women's health and its obsessive crusade to destroy Planned Parenthood.
Phil Connors was also tricked into thinking he'd escaped at least once. But after Mitt Romney won Iowa, he were criticized for it being too close. Then he won New Hampshire…and the story changed to him losing Iowa.
Since he was a State Senator, Schneiderman has been a reform-minded, good-government, left-leaning champion. In his race for Attorney General, he beat out a crowded primary field running as an unapologetic liberal
There was nothing sunny about the last debate in the Sunshine State. The Final Four know that you don't win by being nice and they hardly pretended. Gingrich slammed Romney for investments his blind trust made in mutual funds that bought shares of Fannie and Freddie (convoluted enough for you?). ...
In his State of the Union, the president showed his support for more domestic energy exploration, and while we may have stopped one pipeline, we haven't changed a system that demands us to pipe more oil and natural gas further distances to power our everyday lives.
There are plenty of reasons to be cynical about politics. But the answer isn't to bow out of electoral engagement completely.
With Super PACs savaging candidates left and right, January 21st is a fitting date for the South Carolina Primary: it's the two-year anniversary of Citizens United.

Earlier this week, New York Times columnist David Brooks asked, "Where are the liberals?" The short answer is that they are everywhere—pushing solutions, envisioning a stronger America and building a movement.
The only chance to change Mitt Romney's trajectory to the Republican nomination would be if the anti-Romney faction of the GOP rallied around a single alternative. But that won't happen because there is no "anti-Romney faction."
The President saw he had spent too much of 2011 trying to find a sensible seat at John Boehner's Mad Tea Party. Instead, he walked away from their table. It's been the best decision he's made for his re-election prospects.
Good luck, Newt. Pandora's Box of corporate money has been opened by the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United, and all your rhetoric, offended posture and finger-wagging won't change anything. Romney's own millions are backed by millions more that have been given unfettered access to flood our elections.
A sixth place showing should have been Waterloo for the girl from Waterloo. Instead, she vowed to head to South Carolina (Santorum, in a nice touch, made clear New Hampshire was next). After being burned by unlimited and anonymous negative campaign funding, Gingrich may just become the newest ally to overturn Citizens United.
