Krauthammer: The vacant presidency raises worries

WASHINGTON - The president's demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it's for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement.

Krauthammer: No-brainer on border kids; they can’t stay

WASHINGTON - As is his wont, Barack President Obama is treating the border crisis - more than 50,000 unaccompanied children crossing illegally - as a public relations problem. Where to photo op and where not. He still hasn't enunciated a policy. He may not even have one.

Krauthammer: Obama's government by fiat and overreach

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court this week admonished the Environmental Protection Agency for overreaching in regulating greenhouse gases. The Clean Air Act covers polluters that emit 250 tons per year (or in some cases, 100 tons). This standard makes no sense if applied to greenhouse gases. Thousands of establishments from elementary schools to grocery stores would be, absurdly, covered. So the EPA arbitrarily chose 100,000 tons as the carbon dioxide threshold.

Goldberg: Democrats play game of ‘shut up’ on Iraq

It's a fact of human nature that it's easier to talk about who's to blame for a problem than it is to figure out what to do about the problem.

Navarrette: Cantor couldn't have it both ways on immigration

Historical perspective: Deserters or prisoners of war?

The recent return to U.S. military control of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is curiously similar to the case of another American serviceman who spent years either as a collaborator with, or a prisoner of, enemy forces before being released, that of Marine Pfc. Robert Garwood.

Goldberg: The naked self-interest of the bureaucratic class

For understandable reasons, the IRS scandal has largely focused on the political question of whether the White House deliberately targeted opponents. To date there's no evidence that it did.

Krauthammer: US pays a hefty price for abdication in Iraq

WASHINGTON - Yes, it is true that there was no al-Qaida in Iraq when George W. Bush took office. But it is equally true that there was essentially no al-Qaida in Iraq remaining when Barack Obama took office.

Krauthammer: Jihadi logic is to draw US in, gain status

WASHINGTON - What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) - sure to inflame public opinion?

Goldberg:Obama's ‘optics’ not enough to uphold US honor

"I should have anticipated the optics," President Barack Obama said by way of acknowledging that golfing right after making a statement about the beheading of James Foley looked bad.

When government draws the shades

Several recent events in North Georgia involving government transparency - or the lack thereof - prompted friends and colleagues in other parts of the country to ask whether I am living in some 18th century time warp, as they frequently perceive this portion of the country, where absolutists reign with absolute disregard for their subjects.
