How Republicans Can Lose on ObamaCare

It is a tactic as old as argument itself. The person seeking to accomplish something he knows to be dishonest and unjust sets the parameters of the argument, and invites his opponent to debate the predetermined memes. If the debater does not first disown the false premise, and reset the terms, he has effectively lost […]

Why Republicans Lose in Urban Areas

See also: The Coming Hispanic Civil Rights Movement Fourteen years ago, I was asked to be a keynote speaker at the Richmond County Women’s Republican Club annual dinner. I had started my column at the Staten Island Advance the year before, and as an Hispanic who had grown up in Spanish Harlem, many Republicans were […]

How Congressional Republicans Can Win the First Battle in the Spending War
