Last quote by Ed Rogers

In the wake of last week’s attack ahead of the 2017 Congressional Baseball Game, pundits and politicians came out of the woodwork, issuing calls for solidarity. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) had been rushed to the hospital with bullet wounds, and four other people - including two Capitol Police officers - were injured. Whenever events such as this happen, some are left wondering whether the political climate on Capitol Hill will be impacted and produce a brief era of bipartisan cooperation. Call me a cynic, but the simple answer is: No, last week’s shooting will not change a thing - principally for three reasons.feedback

Ed Rogers has been quoted in 30 different articles. Most recently, Ed Rogers has been quoted saying, “Thousands of students throughout the country will soon receive their college and university diplomas, but not before first receiving the words of a few wise commencement speakers. As was the case last year and the year before that, Harvard University and every other institution of higher education again selected someone other than me as their 2017 commencement speaker. But what does this year’s Harvard commencement speaker, Mark Zuckerberg, have that I don’t have? Well, according to Forbes, Zuckerberg’s net worth is $61.8 billion. I will concede that is not inconsequential. Moving on, here are a few tips for recent graduates who are interested in getting their start in Washington.” in an article called Tips for graduates who want to work in Washington, Part IV.

Mar 31 2017 - Starbucks

The Post’s John Wagner, Mike DeBonis and Robert Costa had a story yesterday entitled, “Trump threatens hard-liners as part of escalating Republican civil war.” It made me wonder: Why has the president himself had to take the point in the fight against inter-party opposition? Not that anyone can control the president’s tweets, but where has the Republican National Committee’s new chair, Ronna Romney McDaniel, been? I was often critical of former Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, but President Barack Obama knew he could rely on support from the DNC when times got tough. Even if Wasserman Schultz’s support was counterproductive at times, at least it was there. I give the now-exiled DNC chair her due. So where is the RNC?feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

A lot of people are hyperventilating over Ivanka Trump going to work in the White House with a proper job title. But, as I wrote last week, Trump possesses much-needed poise, maturity, discretion and deft judgement that could be put to good use in this administration. She should be working out of her father’s private study so that she can rush in to the Oval Office at the first sound of a disturbance or a misguided tweet. Liberals, however, are saying that she isn’t qualified for the job, that her position is nepotism at its worst. Well, I’m not going to even mention Bobby Kennedy here, because the person I think is most analogous is Valerie Jarrett from the Obama White House. She was an intimate adviser to both the first lady and the president. Her relationship to them as a soulmate was the only reason she was in the White House, and her portfolio was borderless.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Immigration

Democrats are weeping and gnashing their teeth about Attorney General Sessions’s commitment to enforcing the nation’s immigration laws. During Monday’s White House press briefing, he put so-called sanctuary cities on notice, arguing that if they continue to harbor criminals and ignore the law, there will be severe consequences. The Justice Department, he announced, is prepared to “claw back any funds awarded to a jurisdiction” that violates federal statute. By holding $4.1 billion in grants over the heads of state and local officials, Attorney General Sessions is taking a step in the right direction to protect everyday Americans and keep them safe. God bless Jeff Sessions.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Obamacare

The Democrats are giddy about Republicans’ failed attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare. They and their allies in the media hope to fake Republicans into believing that they can recruit the party’s less radical members to support a few key pieces of legislation. But the new-Left’s objective is not to reward Democrats for working with Republicans. Their goal is to resist. And the quickest way for a Democrat to be challenged in a primary is if they are labeled a Trump Democrat - a collaborator. The new-Left’s unyielding resistance will not quit and nothing is going to get easier for Republicans.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Congressional Black Caucus

When President Trump met with leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus this week, I was reminded of a fantasy I had during the 2016 campaign that involved then-candidate Trump shaking up the status quo and starting a different conversation with a new generation of African Americans. I imagined Trump, microphone in hand, standing in the streets of some of the poorest, most crime-ridden inner-city neighborhoods, asking young African Americans, “Who do you think wants you to have a shot at getting rich: me or Hillary Clinton?” The answer would have been obvious. The media would have hated it and gone berserk. But I bet a few young African Americans would have thought they were hearing something new and intriguing from an American political leader.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

There has been some hand-wringing in the media lately over the revelation that Ivanka Trump has a second-floor West Wing office. I’ll admit this is an unusual development, so I’m not surprised by the raised eyebrows and faux concern. But in this case, the move should be welcomed by anyone who wants the president to succeed. The problem with this White House isn’t that there is too much poise, maturity, discretion and deft judgement surrounding the president. There is too little. And by all accounts, Ivanka Trump possesses much-needed poise, maturity, discretion and deft judgement that could be put to good use. She is a reassuring presence in an unpredictable White House.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Obamacare

Democrats in Congress are digging themselves a ditch that keeps getting deeper. There’s no good fight to be had on Judge Neil Gorsuch, they’re getting steamrolled on repealing and replacing Obamacare, and their base has lurched to the far left, fully outside their grasp. The result? An out-of-touch leadership that can’t stop babbling. And for all the Trump administration’s miscues, Democrats haven’t laid a glove on the president. They couldn’t appear any weaker.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Supreme Court

Some matters are urgent, others are important. The president’s allegation of wiretapping has certainly risen to an urgent level in Washington, but it distracts from important developments such as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s shaking up the status quo on North Korea and the beginning of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s hearings. Time and again, coverage of the Trump administration’s substantive governing priorities has been disrupted by the president’s own unforced errors. Earlier today, FBI Director James B. Comey testified before the House Intelligence Committee that he has “no information” to support the president’s claims. Even though nothing new was revealed, “no information” will be today’s main story - not Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court or follow-up analysis from Tillerson’s trip to Asia.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Republican Party

Why is it taking the Trump administration so long to fill key posts? If we are worried about the deep state’s influence, shouldn’t the president’s appointees be working around the clock to weed out and ride herd over biased Democrats and White House opponents who are trying to sabotage the GOP agenda? Thus far, I give the Trump cabinet an A+, but they only represent the tip of the iceberg. Without deputies and supporting departmental staff, a cabinet secretary’s office is insufficiently resourced to monitor, much less prevent the shenanigans we’ve seen from arising. More aggressive management is needed.feedback

Mar 15 2017

The next budget battle is underway and it’s taking on a familiar look. On the one hand, the president wants to make serious cuts and is not afraid to act boldly. On the other, Republicans in Congress know they will have to answer for rolling back programs and provisions that are popular back home. Members of the president’s own party may see the futility of supporting substantial cuts. His budget could be declared D.O.A. Washington has been down this road before, but never with a president like President Trump who consistently disproves conventional wisdom.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Democratic Party

With hearings starting next Monday, the House Intelligence Committee will begin its inquiry into allegations of Russia’s meddling into the 2016 election. Democrats, including Rep. Adam B. Schiff (California) - the committee’s ranking member - as well as Reps. Jim Himes (Connecticut) and Jackie Speier (California) have predictably threatened to “walk away” from the table altogether if Republicans stonewall “legitimate lines of investigation.” But by their definition, the investigation can only be “legitimate” if it perpetuates innuendo, promotes baseless accusations and supports the disclosure of leaks to the liberal media. Otherwise, Democrats will declare a cover-up without having to present any real facts or credible evidence of wrongdoing. Never mind that Republicans in Congress, much of the media, and even the Obama administration for a while did everything in their collective power to fully investigate the claims of Russia’s interference in the election. Democrats just can’t seem to accept that the evidence does not point to a crime or even hint at someone doing anything but what they were supposed to. Their witch hunt is clearly a joke. So far, the only comical part is a retelling of the incident in which the FBI contacted the gang that couldn’t shoot at the Democratic National Committee to inform them that they’d been hacked, only to be transferred to the general help desk. Yet, the geniuses at the DNC who did nothing at the time are some of the same people insisting there was malfeasance with the Russians and the Trump campaign. I hope the committee calls the DNC officials to testify about why this was considered trivial at the time but is momentous now. The reason is that President Trump beat them and they can’t get over it. They have shrill leaders and no real plans, so they whine and gin up faux outrage that just turns voters off.feedback

Mar 10 2017 - Obamacare

All eyes are on Vice President Pence and Rick Dearborn, White House deputy chief of staff for legislative, intergovernmental affairs and implementation. They are the able hands that will guide the White House through the process of passing the American Health Care Act. The effort to repeal and replace Obamacare is central to the very being of the Republican Party. Its significance cannot be overstated. And so far, I think things are proceeding according to plan. The era of Obamacare may soon be over.feedback

Mar 07 2017

In politics, it is always important to start one’s work from an honest place. Well, it’s the first full week of March, and neither Republicans nor Democrats are off to a good start.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - American politics

Attorney General Jeff Sessions should have given me a call before he held a news conference Thursday to formally recuse himself from any would-be inquiries regarding the unsubstantiated claims that members of President Trump’s campaign staff were colluding with Russian officials. I’d have told him, sir, you are making a big mistake - don’t do it. It won’t buy you any peace, they will only come at you harder. In situations such as these where baseless allegations are coming at you in every direction, it’s best to hunker down and let the howling mob exhaust themselves. Even prior to his recusal, the so-called resistance issued calls for the attorney general’s resignation. But the whole idea is a joke. Exactly who is being accused? And of what? The Democrats are fishing here, and no Republican should cooperate.feedback

Mar 02 2017

Was President Trump’s speech to Congress a turning point or a head fake? The fact is, no one knows for sure. Less than 48 hours after the speech, a quick Google search for “Trump pivot” brings up 631, 000 entries and counting of pure and absolute conjecture. What we know for certain is that Tuesday’s performance truly shone a spotlight on Trump’s dynamic range as a politician. It also proved that the White House staff, as currently constituted, can deliver big when it matters. Just knowing that to be true has been a major source of relief among Republicans everywhere, particularly those in Congress. And for voters who thought the president couldn’t possibly ditch his rally talk in favor of a sincere, polished address, well, that bar has been cleared.feedback

Instead we have Trump. We have the opposite of discipline. We have the opposite of somebody with a clear ... conservative point of view.feedback
