Bill PressThere's nothing Washington likes better than a scandal. So official Washington was absolutely orgasmic this week while dealing with not one, but three scandals at the same time. Not one of which, sadly, was a sex scandal. First, there were accusations of...
Bill Press"Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who's the most powerful woman of them all?" No doubt about it. Not Queen Elizabeth, Angela Merkel or Oprah Winfrey. The most powerful woman on the planet is former first lady, former senator from New York, former...
Bill PressFor decades, American politicians have denounced human rights violations in Cuba. With good cause, they've accused the Castro brothers of rounding up political prisoners, torturing them, and detaining them for years with no charges filed and no access...
Bill PressIt was inspiring to see them side by side at Southern Methodist University in Dallas: Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. For their service to this country, we are indebted to each one of them. It's...
Let me begin this column with an apology. Once a week, I pick an important issue and offer my reasoned analysis, based on the facts, of what it all means and how we should react. But there are times when the intellect fails and the heart and gut take...
They started out with a lot in common -- Joe Manchin and Patrick Toomey. Sure, one's a Democrat and one's a Republican, but they're both conservatives, both longtime gun owners and both sport an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association. But now...

Bill PressThe year 2012 was a disaster for the Republican Party. They failed to regain control of the U.S. Senate. They lost eight seats in the House of Representatives. They didn't just lose the White House to Barack Obama, they got clobbered: losing the Electoral...
Bill PressQuick! Somebody tell President Obama. Alert the members of Congress. Shout it out to the media: I have balanced the budget! That's right. Me. Bill Press, talk show host. I did it. I can't balance my own checkbook, but I balanced the federal budget. In...
Bill PressA rare beast was spotted this week in Washington. An event as rare as the sighting of Big Foot. We actually saw a real filibuster in action. It was a welcome event, even if it was performed by crazy Sen. Rand Paul. For two reasons. One, because Paul...
