    Washington Post: 'Obama's Foreign Policy Is Based on Fantasy'

    President Obama has lost The Washington Post’s editorial board with his disastrous foreign policy.

    The Problem with Giving America a Raise

    In his State of the Union Address, President Obama told Congress to “give America a raise.” But as the job forecasts are revealing, he might as well have told them to “kill some American jobs.” Why? Heritage experts forecasted months ago that a proposed minimum wage hike would kill the … More

    Americans Can Unite Around 'Core Ideas,' DeMint Says on 'Face the Nation'

    Although Democrats in Congress willingly gave President Obama “a blank check” to borrow more money last week and most Republicans didn’t, Americans are tired of such partisan fights in Washington and ready to rally around “core ideas,” Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint said this morning on “Face the Nation.” “America … More
