      A Christmas Thought: the President Is Godless

      Last Sunday, at a high school in Newtown, Connecticut, President Obama gave one of the most extraordinary speeches of his presidency. In a room full of grieving family and friends of the victims, Obama revealed the limits of faith. Take the nods to biblic…

      David Frum Is (Still Just) a Canadian Conservative

      David Frum appeared on the American mainstream political scene in 2000 as a speech writer for George W. Bush. He helped pen the expression "axis of evil," and in 2004 co-wrote "An End to Evil" with fellow neocon Richard Perle. Today, Frum has re-emerged a…

      The End of America as We Knew It

      We're finally done. No more debates, no more speeches, no more ads, no more polls. Now you—you Americans—will vote (or not) and this long, national nightmare will finally be over.

      Obama (and 'The Economist') Won the Second Presidential Debate

      Robamaney, Not Romney

      Robamaney, unlike Candidate Romney, is not in favor of $5 trillion in tax cuts. Tax cuts? Where did the President come up with that? Robamaney doesn't want to cut taxes to that extent at all. No. And Robamaney doesn't care what the Republican Tea Party th…

      Obama Is So, So Fucked

      Welcome to a non-race-reactionary/pre-debate musing. I'm going to try and look forward today, not backward at the week that has just transpired. I'm writing my column this week from Greece, however, so excuse me for being a little pessimistic. This place…

      Mitt Romney, Little Black Hole

      The Romney campaign is stalling, nothing's landing, and they need to connect soon. So last week Romney threw a foreign-policy punch. And in the short term he's being hammered for it. But will it pay off? What else can he do? He is falling into his own lit…

      I Was Wrong: Mitt Romney Is Not a Sociopath After All

      Last week, in the inaugural installment of my new column, I concluded that Mitt Romney is a wolf in sheep's clothing and probably worse; that he is a sociopath out for the Oval Office at whatever cost. I was wrong.
