No finger pointing

Insurgencies are difficult to manage, and the wrong approach can easily strengthen rather than weaken the opposing power.

The Spin Meister at work

Overheard: 'Wind and sun -- they're cute, but they can't keep the American economy running. Now, don't tell me you're a socialist?'

Eager for free lunches

In the hunt for the Times Square wanna-be bomber, we nailed it cold. Despite everyone's best efforts, the Gulf is a mess. What's the difference?

A Rose Garden embrace

Don't just think about what the GOP could gain by embracing the tea party movement.

An insurgency to remember

By resisting the worst impulses of anti-British anger in colonial times and harnessing it to a larger set of ideas and principles, our founding fathers succeeded brilliantly in turning an insurgency into an enduring and great nation.

Iron Man vs. Captain America

Iron Man and Captain America once nearly destroyed each other -- and then mourned for all they had lost. The GOP and tea party should find a 'win/win' collaboration that works.

A dead cause

An expansion of areas open to offshore drilling has almost certainly been destroyed by BP, and its pursuit for the next several years by Republicans or anyone else is pointless.

Can government fix it?

Recent serial disasters -- Gulf oil spill, Times Square car-bomber, immigration flood, Wall Street malfeasance - shows that conservative Republican anti-governmentism is no longer convincing.

GOP job plan for Gulf coast?

Out-of-work fishermen are hired to contain the oil spill. Are these the new jobs that Republican leaders promised when they supported off-shore drilling?

Not as bad as you think

On a global scale, fragile ecological systems may be safer if drilling occurs under US regulations and with US technologies.

Time for a real energy policy

I realize that a tax increase would be unacceptable to many people, but serious thought must be given to an enhanced tax on gasoline.

Follow the Chernobyl example

The Republican Party can use this Gulf oil spill to promote stricter environmental drilling standards.

Pile on BP

Ironically, Obama may be their biggest ally here. Marry him on this one. Next embrace those folks in the Gulf states who are already bearing the brunt of the consequences of the spill

No time for spin

There's no way to spin this ecological and economic disaster in the Gulf, and Republicans would be foolish to try.

Lessons from Three-Mile Island

The midst of a crisis is not an appropriate time to appeal to the emotions of the moment in the making of broad policy choices.

By George Daly | May 4, 2010; 5:10 AM ET | Comments (1)

Will the opportunity be wasted?

Imagine the broad appeal of a Republican effort requiring better safeguards and emergency procedures for off-shore drilling.
