Charles Krauthammer: It’s already game over for the Democrats

Jonah Goldberg: Obama prefers ‘politicizing,’ not solutions

President Barack Obama was right. He was right when, just a few hours after the horrible shooting in Oregon, he decried the fact that such slaughters have become "routine." He was even right, in a sense, when he defended politicizing the tragedy.
