Democrat Jason Crow has won Colorado's 6th Congressional District, beating long-time Republican Rep. Mike Coffman in a high-stakes, high-dollar battleground race. Nationally, the victory...
Donald Trump has just pushed some very fine people, as he would put it, over the edge. Some very fine people now know that...
When Barack Obama was running for president in 2008 as the anti-Iraq-war candidate, it all seemed so easy. He'd wind down the war, pull out the troops and leave Iraqis to sort out their own country, with the help of American "advisers" - whatever that word means.
John Tomasic: Hi again readers, debaters, tweeters. It's nearly high noon, which means the air is soon to become thick with rhetorical gunsmoke. Independence...
We’ve all heard the refrain that “the immigration system is broken.” Everyone agrees. It’s the one thing Tom Tancredo and I can agree on.
A federal judge ruled Friday that a Bush-era auction of gas leases on the Roan Plateau failed to adequately address its environmental impacts or entertain alternative, less-intrusive drilling plans.
The Bureau of Land Management proposed a sharp cut Friday in the acreage available for oil shale and tar sands leasing in the West, including a 90 percent reduction of potential land in Colorado.
Popular Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels has been chosen to deliver the Republican response to President Obama's State of the Union address tonight. Ideas about how best the government might respond to the limping economy and tackle the enormous federal budget deficit are sure to feature prominently in both speeches. Daniels comes to such a discussion with baggage, however, having head the Office of Management and Budget under George W. Bush from 2001 to 2003, when the projected budget surplus of $236 billion ran down the sink hole to become a $400 billion deficit.
Former Colorado Congressman and anti-illegal immigration crusader Tom Tancredo has no patience with Republican presidential frontrunner Rick Perry, the Texas governor with the Hollywood hair who fired up the right when he announced his candidacy but who has stumbled under the national spotlight ever since. In the wake of last week's GOP candidate debate, Tancredo decried Perry as an arrogant "name-calling, open border, pro-amnesty politician."
Colorado Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn has come out strong this year against earmarks. He joined the Tea Party caucus dedicated to fighting government waste and he enthusiastically signed onto the GOP House pledge against earmarking, or the practice of tacking on projects to legislation in order to deliver tax money to favored constituencies and causes. Lamborn wrote an editorial for his hometown Colorado Springs Gazette against earmarks last Saturday, a feel good Thanksgiving treat for the Gazette's conservative readers. He left out the fact that he has been earmark crazy since he arrived in Washington in 2007.
