Joseph Cotto: Ted Cruz and the Constitution
The question of Ted Cruz’s eligibility to be president has been simmering on the back burner for years, but this past week the benign chatter erupted into front-page headlines thanks to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. Texas’s firebrand — though perhaps ‘fire starter’ would...

Byron York: In Iowa, is Trump stronger than people think?
DES MOINES — Who’s leading the Republican presidential race here in Iowa? Most recent polls say Ted Cruz, including last month’s edition of the influential Des Moines Register poll, which had Cruz ahead of second-place Donald Trump by 10 points. Yet there is a nagging sense...

Susan Stamper Brown: Nightmares are dreams, too
Over the holidays, Europeans were rudely awakened from their utopian dream of open borders and peaceful coexistence to discover, as Oscar Wilde once wrote, “...nightmares are dreams too.” Rape and personal crime are on the rise in Europe. The Courier-Mail reports that along with...

Donna Brazile: Obama’s unfinished business
After years of trying to motivate Congress to act on improving gun safety laws, President Obama has decided to go it alone. I fully understand his motivation to proceed cautiously. We have arrived at a point where we will sell guns to a terrorist or a criminal in the false claim of...

Rich Lowry: Ted Cruz is Nixon, not Goldwater
The lazy conventional wisdom is that Ted Cruz is the new Barry Goldwater, doomed to suffer an electoral landslide defeat should he win the Republican nomination. Not only is this wrong about Cruz’s general election chances, it may compare Cruz to the wrong 20th-Century Republican...

Cokie & Steven V. Roberts: Is showtime over?
“Establishment Presidential Candidates Battle to End Flirtation With Outsiders.” That Wall Street Journal headline sums up the race for the Republican nomination less than a month before the Iowa caucuses. Most political analysts, including us, have long predicted that once GOP...

David M. Shribman: It’s a whole new campaign in 2016
Marco Rubio unleashed an attack on Ted Cruz. Donald J. Trump bought his first television ad, almost certainly to blunt the surge of Cruz. Chris Christie took off on Trump, suggesting the billionaire businessman wasn’t a “grown-up.” Then Trump opened new questions about whether...

Byron York: Future dim for Carson campaign
As it has for months, Ben Carson’s campaign is raising a lot of money. The Republican presidential candidate raised $23 million in the last quarter of 2015 — ahead of red-hot Ted Cruz and, likely, all other rivals in the Republican field. At the same time, Carson is plunging in...

Dick Polman: Republican gun servants
Why do Republicans nauseatingly refuse to address America’s gun murder epidemic? Why are they so determined to sustain our well-earned reputation as the most violent nation in the civilized western world? Why are they jerking their knees in reflexive opposition to President Obama’s...

Joseph Cotto: Cruz and the decline of Christian conservatism
Have you heard about Ted Cruz’s new fundraising appeal? If the question confuses you, that’s understandable. Texas’s firebrand — if not fire starter — junior U.S. senator has gained a prolific reputation for email requests to many folks, no small number of which have zero...

Bob Franken: Natalie, Jeb and Ben
I’m among those who mourn the death of Natalie Cole. I didn’t know her personally — only through her singing, but that was enough to make me a devoted fan. She leaves behind a long list of recordings and performances that marked her as a star. Her voice and style stood alone,...

Donna Brazile; 2016: A look ahead
If we learned anything from 2015, it’s that 2016 will be nothing like what we imagine it will. Suffice it to say that in my look ahead to 2015 last year, I did not predict that Donald Trump would lead in the quest for the Republican presidential nomination. If I had called that...

Cokie & Steven V. Roberts: Conservative war on science
Donald Trump tells outrageous lies with no regard for reality. There’s his claim — never supported by any visual evidence — that “thousands and thousands of people” in New Jersey cheered the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11. Or the accusation that President Obama wants...
