The Republican effort to end federal funding for the advocacy group is not an attack on black women and minorities. It's an attempt to slow the onslaught of abortions among people of color.
The hard line on budget cuts that the GOP is taking in Wisconsin and New Jersey and on Capitol Hill could cause a backlash against its philosophies and -- eventually -- its officeholders.
Some conservative critics of President Obama have characterized as un-American his recent appeal to business leaders to play their role in reviving our economy. This is just plain hogwash.
Harry Reid's determination to stop health care reform in the Senate -- despite hints from President Obama and others -- shows that many Democrats are more concerned about winning the political war than about a healthier America.
The House vote to cancel President Obama's health care reforms could have real value if it triggers an honest discussion about how to do health care right.
Rhetorical and legislative proposals indicate that some legislators want to use the shootings to set us on an un-American path.
With 20 mayoral wannabes, including a hypnotherapist and seven black candidates, there's been lots of drama in Chicago lately. But we should all be concerned about the inability of black Chicago to rally behind one office seeker.

Regardless of what happens during the last few days of the 111th Congress, the divisive and toxic legacy of the House speaker will reflect her role in dividing America.
Republican disagreement with the president on policies is often labeled racist. What do you call it when Democrats oppose the first significant bipartisan compromise so vigorously that one of them even tosses the f-word at the president?
