    **SNIP** Remember: The law passed in March 2010. It was to go into full effect on Jan. 1, 2014. That means the administration had almost four years to get its ducks into a row. Four years. That was more time than it took us to win World War II, which we fought across three continents, a bunch of islands and two oceans. And yet here we are, four years later, and the administration has spent the past six months effectively rewriting the law for both political and practical reasons. It shouldn’t be able to do this, because it is, you...

    I could rip Todd Haley, and it wouldn't even be sport. I could rip the Steelers' offensive coordinator for a display so sickly — 14 first downs, 195 yards — that it not only wrought a 16-9 loss to a terribly beatable Tennessee team Sunday at Heinz Field but also had fans fleeing for the exits. Early in the fourth quarter! Of the season opener! I could rip Haley for a third-and-11 receiver screen to Emmanuel Sanders in which tight end David Paulson, who can't block, was sent out to block. Paulson whiffed, and Sanders was slammed for a 2-yard...

    Washington City Paper ^ | 9/13/13 | Perry Stein
    Tucked within a release naming its new president and CEO, NPR announced today that it would seek to reduce its staff by 10 percent through a voluntary buyout plan. (The Washington-based organization employed 840 people in 2012.) NPR's board of directors just approved a budget for fiscal year 2014, which includes a deficit of $6.1 million, or 3.1 percent of its $178.1 million in revenue. The buyouts are intended to help plug the spending gap and, according to the release, will be offered "broadly across the organization." The board named Paul G. Haaga, Jr. as acting president and CEO effective...

    Despite having been—full disclosure—an adviser to John McCain, I acknowledged his opponent’s remarkable qualities: his soaring oratory, his cool, hard-to-ruffle temperament, and his near faultless campaign organization. Yet the question confronting the country nearly four years later is not who was the better candidate four years ago. It is whether the winner has delivered on his promises. And the sad truth is that he has not. In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines...

    The Bowl Championship Series is the worst thing ever to happen to college football. If anything, the BCS destroys a chance for quality teams to face off every year. I like bowls. I enjoy all of the games. I enjoy watching Southern Mississippi’s offense every December. I enjoy seeing some of the smaller FBS schools, like San Diego State, Nevada and Troy get some national exposure. But I hate the BCS. It destroys rivalries, burns its chance to create new rivalries and alienates teams from getting into the national title hunt.

    Friday was not a good night for President Barack Obama in the ratings. He got a shellacking there, too, to follow the one in the midterm elections. His conversation with Barbara Walters placed second in total viewers to a rerun of CBS’ “Blue Bloods” and third in the 10 p.m. time slot in the 18-to-49 age group. On that count, Obama was behind Tom Selleck and NBC’s broadcast of the fantasy film “Enchanted.” The Walters interview averaged 5.7 million viewers for ABC. The “Blue Bloods” repeat, the second of two Friday night, pulled in 7.6 million for CBS. Here are...

Tanner's decision, according to those familiar with it, was made weeks ago and based on his desire to return to the Volunteer State after more than two decades in Washington. The decision was first reported by the Hotline. Tanner, first elected to the 8th district in 1988, has run without a serious challenge in recent years despite the fact that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) won the seat with 56 percent in 2008. Tanner is the second House Democrat from a...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — National Republicans turned the tables on their political counterparts Wednesday by redirecting angry telephone calls coming into their switchboard to the Democratic National Committee. The DNC released a Web video early in the morning accusing the GOP of inciting mob activity at town hall meetings. At the end of the video, the DNC instructs people to call the Republican National Committee to express outrage. Callers who dial the RNC's main number to voice their concern about the DNC's charges are told to press 1, which sends them to the DNC's main switchboard. DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse described...

    A new USA Today/Gallup poll puts President Obama's approval rating at 55 percent, which ranks him 10th among 12 post-World War II presidents at the same point in the survey. His approval is down from 61 percent in late May. As he seeks to regain momentum on the health care front, the survey finds that only 44 percent approve of his handling of the issue, with 50 percent disapproving. Also, 59 percent say his proposal would lead to too much government spending, and 52 percent say it would "call for too much expansion of government power." The poll of 1,006...

    After refusing to endorse President Bush's tax cuts when he was governor, Mitt Romney has now made them a central part of his presidential campaign, stirring accusations that he is changing his position to appeal to GOP primary voters. In 2003, Romney stunned a roomful of Bay State congressmen by telling them that he would not publicly support Bush's tax cuts, which at the time formed the centerpiece of the president's domestic agenda. He even said he was open to a federal gas tax hike. This report flies directly in the face of Romney's economic address yesterday, and subsequent interview...

    In the 10 years of the BCS era, we've seen pretty much everything. Perhaps the only major development we've yet to see is a two-loss team in the BCS Championship Game. Later today, that one should become a reality. The million-dollar question is: Which two-loss team will it be? Jim Tressel has watched as other teams have helped Ohio State's title cause. At least seven teams, including once-beaten Ohio State and Kansas, are likely to receive second-place votes in the polls. If the voters rank teams based on perceived strength (who would win on a neutral field), any number of...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- It took just a glance backstage at MTV's New Year's Eve bash for Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong to pinpoint the career stages of other acts on the bill. There's the hot young thing, on all the magazine covers. The band in a sophomore slump. The critical darling that can't catch a break. Then he locked eyes with a music veteran, riding a hit (he won't say who). They exchanged knowing nods. These are heady days for Green Day. They knew while recording that their album, "American Idiot," was the best thing they'd ever done. Critics...

    The Bush administration has significantly scaled back expectations of U.S. job growth, reflecting continued hesitancy on the part of employers and robust growth in output per worker. The White House said it expects nonfarm employment to rise 2.1 million next year to an annual average of 133.4 million. In February, it had projected 3.6 million more jobs in 2005. To achieve its new projection, employment growth should average 175,000 a month in 2005, according to the forecast, which was jointly developed by the Council of Economic Advisers, the Treasury Department and the Office of Management and Budget.

    FOX News Channel host Bill O'Reilly claimed that former President Bill Clinton's newly opened presidential library gives Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) "access to money because Bill Clinton's got a checkbook that he can write anything off against that library he wants."

In fact, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), a federal agency, took over the Clinton Presidential Center, including its management and funding, on the day the library opened. NARA administers all ten presidential libraries. On the November 18 edition of...

    A Food & Drug Administration advisory committee raised questions yesterday about the safety and effectiveness of a patch developed by Procter & Gamble to increase the sex drives of women. The committee will present its findings today to a panel of FDA officials. While not binding, the committee's recommendations typically serve as a bellwether for FDA approval. The committee cited a research study that concluded a combination of the hormones progesterone and estrogen increased the risk of heart and breast cancer, and wondered if a different hormone, such as the testosterone used in P&G's Intrinsa patch, would produce a similar...
