The impending departure of Speaker of the House John Boehner gives the House Republicans a real opportunity to accomplish something.
Trump is appealing for what he’s not, more than for what he is.
Donald Trump is not the only obstacle to finding leaders of character. The ultimate danger lies in the voting public themselves.
The Republican establishment needs to understand why someone with all Trump’s faults could attract so many people who are sick of the approach that Jeb Bush represents.
Ironically, the Republicans have a much stronger set of presidential candidates than usual to choose from this year.
After more than six years of Barack Obama in the White House, have we learned nothing about the dangers of choosing a President of the United States on the basis of sound bites, with no track record to check against his rhetoric?
Donald Trump has virtually no chance of becoming even the Republican Party’s candidate in 2016, much less being elected President of the United States. If Trump ran as a third-party candidate he would virtually guarantee victory for Hillary Clinton.
It’s not clear what Trump has to offer, other than a willingness (at times refreshing) to speak his mind, without fear of reprisal.
U.S. foreign policy during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State was to undermine our friends and cater to our enemies.
Deal making is a tactic and a skill; it’s not a principle of leadership.
