Conservatives have made a lot of hay this past week over DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s contention that Democrats now “own the economy” and for good reason.

We have a law called the War Powers Act. It says, essentially, that the President can hop in that boss muscle car we call the United States Military and take it for a spin pretty much any time he wants, but if he’s going to take it on a long trip, he has to come […]

First, the hand-picked panel of financial and government experts on the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission released its findings on, well, the financial crisis. Its findings will not surprise you.
