Tactics and an agenda for the new Congress. Dec 1, 2014, Vol. 20, No. 12 • By JAMES C. CAPRETTA and LANHEE J. CHEN

The Republican National Committee responds to President Obama's executive amnesty with this video:
The RNC says in a statement, “President Obama’s politically motivated executive order is unprecedented,” said Chairman Priebus. “If he believed that his actions were urgent and that he had the Constitutional authority all along, why didn’t he think so for the last six years of his presidency?”
R.I.P., ‘emerging Democratic majority.'
Nov 24, 2014, Vol. 20, No. 11 • By JAY COST
For years, liberal Democrats have haughtily explained to Republicans that the GOP is on the cusp of becoming a permanent minority. Even speaker of the House John Boehner can find himself on the receiving end of lectures by preening leftists. President Barack Obama warned Boehner of the GOP’s impending presidential collapse just two days after the Republican party’s midterm triumph!
The demise of the GOP has been greatly exaggerated. Nov 24, 2014, Vol. 20, No. 11 • By MARK HEMINGWAY
Ever since the Democrats were trounced in the midterm elections, they and the media have been trying to figure out how Republicans triumphed so thoroughly.

States, not just senators, will check and balance the administration. Nov 17, 2014, Vol. 20, No. 10 • By ADAM J. WHITE
Tuesday’s elections reinforced constitutional checks and balances against the Obama administration’s excesses, but not just in the most obvious way. For all the attention rightly paid to the new Senate majority, there’s another important set of newly elected officials who may soon push back against federal overreach: state attorneys general.

Back before incoming senators Tom Cotton and Cory Gardner and Joni Ernst and Dan Sullivan were born, before new House members Elise Stefanik and Lee Zeldin and Mia Love were a gleam in their parents’ eyes, the Beach Boys said it best: “Catch a wave and you’re sitting on top of the world.”

At the end of his opening statement at the traditional postelection presidential press conference, Barack Obama offered this assurance: “I continue to believe we are simply more than just a collection of red and blue states,” he said. “We are the United States.”
It was a banner night for the GOP.Nov 17, 2014, Vol. 20, No. 10 • By JAY COST
The 2014 midterm elections were a referendum on Barack Obama’s performance as president. He has done a bad job, and most Americans know it. Accordingly, the American people used the only means they had of making good their disapproval: They elected Republicans.
