Crowd Counts Are a Game Nobody Wins

Numbers don't lie, right? But the problem is, there are lots of numbers out there when it comes to counting crowds at Washington demonstrations. And finding the person who isn't lying about the numbers is a perennial sport when it comes to protest politics in the nation's capital. The organizers of a demonstration exaggerate, sometimes by the hundred thousand. The opposition dismisses the crowd, slicing it by at least a half. Police, if they talk crowd size at all, are all over the place. And federal agencies have learned to stay far, far away from the game.

9/12: Race, the Tea Party Protesters and a Battle of Interpretations

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs today brushed aside suggestions that Saturday's protests against President Obama were in any way racially motivated."I don't think the president believes that people are upset because of the color of his skin," Gibbs said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "I think people are upset because on Monday we celebrate the anniversary of the Lehman Brothers collapse that caused a financial catastrophe unlike anything we've ever seen."

Health-Care Reform, One Stop at a Time

President Obama's supporters hope to recapture the energy of last year's triumphant election campaign in a bid to regain control of the health-care debate, planning more than 2,000 house parties, rallies and town hall meetings across the country over the next two weeks. The initiative began Wednesday with a rally at a labor hall in Phoenix that featured the Obama sunrise logo and placards that became fixtures of the 2008 presidential campaign.

Bailing Out of the Constitution

It is high time Americans heard an argument that might turn a vague national uneasiness into a vivid awareness of something going very wrong. The argument is that the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA) is unconstitutional.

Love, etc.

They're off : The Virginia Gold Cup steeplechase is often upstaged by drinking and networking, but this weekend's races had an extra sideshow: New Jerseyites Katie O'Malley , 39, and Angus McCulloch , 42, exchanged vows between the third and fourth races in a tent sponsored by conservative advocacy group FreedomWorks. Second marriage for both. "I kind of like the chaos around us," said O'Malley, a fundraiser for a nonprofit.

Ben Bernanke is considered to be safe pick

WASHINGTON - In nominating Ben Bernanke as the next Federal Reserve Board chairman, President Bush turned to a candidate with unassailable credentials and enough distance from the White House to blunt charges of cronyism or ideological motivations, former White House officials and economists said Monday.

The Forces That Set the Agenda

In the grand scheme of things, Social Security isn't the nation's biggest fiscal problem. That's not my view. That's the assessment of Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a Bush political appointee before he became head of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, who says that looming financial calamities in Medicare and Medicaid are larger and more immediate worries in a strictly budgetary sense.

Housing Ills Blamed On NIMBY, Regulation

Excessive regulation and not-in-my-back-yard thinking deserve much of the blame for the nation's shortage of affordable homes, federal housing officials said yesterday. And that's a situation that hasn't changed in 14 years, since then-housing secretary Jack Kemp issued a report that was seen as a challenge to environmentalists and anti-growth advocates.
