The de­feat of the Re­pub­lic­ans’ health care over­haul was a pain­ful re­mind­er that the GOP re­mains badly di­vided, even on an is­sue that was the ral­ly­ing cry for the party for the past sev­en years. Re­pub­lic­ans, with con­trol of the White House and Con­gress, look em­bar­rass­ingly in­cap­able of gov­ern­ing. The polit­ic­al con­sequences are severe: GOP voters are likely to be de­mor­al­ized in the run-up to next year’s midterm elec­tions, es­pe­cially if Pres­id­ent Trump is un­able to achieve any oth­er le­gis­lat­ive vic­tor­ies.

But I cannot help but play the old game, what if this was Obama in this entire Devin Nunes and Russia and Trump intel story? For instance. Well, okay, let me set the table.

Julie Hirschfeld Davis, NY Times
WASHINGTON — President Trump’s failure to push through the broad health care overhaul he promised has raised questions about the prospects of a sweeping rewrite of the tax code. It is a politically fraught and dizzyingly complex endeavor that pits powerful interests against one another and threatens to increase the federal deficit.

WASHINGTON -- As the White House reboots for "Trump 2.0" after a largely unsuccessful first two months, one lesson should be obvious: The radical, polarizing politics of the campaign trail don't work well in governing the country.America isn't Russia or the Philippines. Our system has speed bumps, carefully constructed by our Founders. Presidents don't rule simply by executive order. They must shape policies that are comprehensible to the public and can be enacted into law.In Trump's first two months, he too often behaved as an insurgent and disrupter, rather than a chief executive. He paid a...

Colin Dueck, Claremont Review
From Montana and the Dakotas down to the Gulf of Mexico, a wide belt of small-town and rural counties constitutes a distinct American region. Economically, it relies heavily on agriculture and extracting minerals, oil, and gas. Demographically, its population is disproportionately of English and German descent. Electorally, it leans conservative and Republican, though with an independent libertarian strain. The dominant prairie ethos really does match the stereotype: straightforward, hard-working, and unpretentious. Last November these Great Plains counties voted overwhelmingly in favor of...

WASHINGTON — As they come to terms with their humiliating failure to undo the Affordable Care Act, Republicans eyeing next year’s congressional campaign are grappling with a new dilemma: Do they risk depressing their conservative base by abandoning the repeal effort or anger a broader set of voters by reviving a deeply unpopular bill even closer to the midterm elections?

At 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, Sir Tim Barrow, the U.K.’s permanent representative to the EU, will hand-deliver a letter from British Prime Minister Theresa May to the office of European Council President Donald Tusk in Brussels, officially notifying the European Union of the U.K.’s intention to leave the 60-year-old bloc. The delivery of that letter will trigger Article 50, the statute of the EU Lisbon Treaty governing the procedure for the withdrawal of a member state.

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 08:40:25 -0500

Ed Rogers, Washington Post
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...
