Massachusetts voters threw out a good man, one of the few moderates in a polarized, divided Congress, and put in his place an extreme liberal academic. Who, by the way, was born and grew up in the Mid more »

Carroll, like most mainstream liberals, misses the point. The Israelis approved these housing permits to prove a simple point: they're in control, not the United Nations, not Ban Ki Moon, not the Pa more »

Let the gloating and jeering begin.

This land, disputed though it may be, is currently vacant and no Arabs would be displaced. The Europeans are upset because Jews will live there. If the Israelis granted permits for Muslims to build ho more »

Lost amid the debates about global warming and water pollution is the simple fact that shale oil and gas production came out of private investment and entrepreneurial spirit. The U.S. government has more »

An awkward turn of phrase, perhaps, but hardly the end of the world. Obama had his share of gaffes too. We need smarter people to run for political office at all levels, and we need to focus more on t more »

Oh my God. Well, fortunately we now have a woman of color in the Senate who will give more priority to this kind of urgent problem. Surely she can convince our President to establish a Black Commuter more »

Another "Israel's the bad guy" essay that adds nothing, no new ideas, no new insights, not even a fair and balanced analysis. Thanks for another waste of space. Remind me why I still pay for this rag.

"Fair"? This isn't about fairness. It's about confiscation of a private company's earnings in exchange for nothing whatsoever. Patrick and this so-called Main Street group claim Amazon is now a Massac more »

A great victory for the atheists! We raise a beer in their honor! The park has been rescued from this horrible blight of a religious scene! Our children are so much safer now!

Atlanta's problems may not be her fault, but a good leader still should take some responsibility for her organization and not weasel out. But, we must recognize that this, like most state positions, i more »

This type of investigative reporting is what makes a great newspaper. The Globe's gushing endorsements of favored pols like Elizabeth Warren are what discredits them.

This is a win-win situation for Morsi and Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Egypt. He can get all kissie-kissie-solidarity with Hamas, meanwhile doing basically nothing while Israel stomps them into the gr more »

She ran an effective campaign, but she didn't "earn" the senatorial seat. Mr. Brown lost the seat because of a general desire in a very liberal, very Democratic state to save the Senate from a Republ more »

Uh, not really. According to his tax returns and all other evidence that has been brought forth, Romney pays more taxes, and donates more to charities every single year than the average American does more »

It was a narrow victory, not a decisive one, and in the end it was tiny majorities in a handful of swing states that made the difference. The popular vote was practically a tie, 2.5 million more for more »

The prostitute in chief. Four years ago he had nothing good to say about Obama, but now he's trying to lay the foundations for Hilary's 2016 run. One might suspect such a flawed, dishonest man of cyn more »

Another campaign ad for Obama and Warren, barely disguised as a news article. Ms. Healy's goal is to make us forget the miserable economic conditions of the past four years and blindly vote for the ta more »

Brown up to now has been a reasonable, moderate Senator. Not perfect, maybe, but representative of the working people, the military, and the business sector, if not of the elite intellectual elements more »

Spoken like a true Democrat. They just twist the facts to fit their narrow view of things.
Posted 10/31/2012 07:49:17 EDT
Yeah, because Mitt did such a "horrible" job in Massachusetts--balancing the budget, streamlining government, and lowering unemployment. We can't have a President doing that, now, can we?

Another Democrat plays the race card: if you're against Obama, you must be racist.
Posted 10/31/2012 07:37:38 EDT
We need another far left ideologue in the Senate like we need a hole in the head. Clearly, a lot of people will vote for the Democratic candidate reflexively, with no thought as to what effects it mig more »

"Toughness and grit"? What a ridiculous thing to say. Scott Brown had a truly difficult childhood and he bounced back to accomplish great things. Warren has nothing like that in her background. Oh more »

The economy trumps reproductive rights. These single-issue voters on both ends of the political spectrum simply don't represent the vast majority of Americans, who are much more concerned about their more »
