Barack Obama: The Most Uninformed President in History

I've always thought of Barack Obama as the "Chauncey Gardiner" of American politics. Like Peter Sellers' character in the classic film, "Being There," Obama is an embodiment of outsiders' hopes and dreams for who they think he is. Reality, like the film, shows there isn't really a lot of there, there. Oct 28, 2013 11:34 AM PT

Dem Strategist: 'Party Is F****d'

Ron Fournier, an honest liberal at National Journal, reported Monday that a senior Democrat strategist, with close ties to the White House sent him an email over the weekend.

Colorado Exchange: 25K for Medicaid, 200 for Private Insurance

Colorado is one of 14 states operating its own ObamaCare exchange for health insurance. As a result, it has had more success enrolling people than the disastrous federal exchange. Still, Colorado's relative "success" reveals a deeper problem with the new health care entitlement. So far, just 226 people have enrolled for private health insurance. At the same time, 25,000 Coloradans will be newly eligible for Medicaid benefits in January. Oct 25, 2013 9:50 AM PT

There is increasingly little chance that the House will consider immigration reform before the end of the year.
