  • Cuba: Obama’s foreign policy gem

        It was wonderful to see Air Force One land in Havana, Cuba, and watch the President of the United States depart the plane and launch an historic visit to the long-punished island nation so close to us.

  • Protecting the people’s house

They are all examples of attempts by President Obama to overstep his power and bypass Congress. But these are just a drop in the bucket when it comes to the pattern of overreach we have seen from the Executive Branch in recent years. On nearly every issue – from health care to farming – President Obama has used his pen and phone to rewrite the law on his own.

     

  • High court nominee deserves hearing

        Last week, President Barack Obama fulfilled his constitutional duty and nominated a federal judge, Merrick Garland, for the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.
        Conservative Republicans in the Senate, who love to promote “upholding the Constitution,” when it suits them, have announced that they will shirk their constitutional duties and not even provide a hearing for this nominee.
