What a difference eight years makes. With few exceptions, our national media is confused and depressed about the prospect of President Donald Trump.

Back in 2008 however, the media was downright giddy over the election of Obama. Some journalists even wanted George W. Bush to step aside early so Obama could be...

In 2007, I could have sworn President Barack Obama was supposed to be the savior of the Democrat Party. The smooth talking, suave Illinois senator had everything to bring the party together and end any GOP dominance.

Well, it turns out, the Democrats have lost 1,030 seats across the board since Obama...

PRECIOUS! During an interview with NPR, President Barack Obama advised president-elect Donald Trump not to abuse the executive orders privilege:

Should President-elect Trump, once he’s inaugurated, use his executive powers in the same way that you have?
