Other Opinion: Obama and Trump agree on one thing - and they're right
June 22 (Reuters) - From terrorism to immigration and healthcare, President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump don't agree on much. Obama hammers Trump on immigration policy, describing his ideas as "dangerous" and "loose talk and sloppiness."...

Other opinion: Trump's vote-winning strategy - attack Muslims
June 23 (Reuters) - Donald Trump prides himself on not backing down from any fight or controversial position. Hours after the Orlando nightclub mass shooting on June 12, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee doubled down on his plan to ban Muslim immigrants from entering...

Other Opinion: When in doubt … blame the news media
People in the news media are very used to being disliked. It seems that anyone who feels strongly about an issue also carries a gut belief that "the media" is biased against them. Donald Trump has been blasting journalists for their supposed unfair treatment – along with their kid...

Endorsement – Ignore the critics: The choice is Mills
Don't believe everything you've heard about Stewart Mills – except that he's the clear choice for voters on Nov. 4 to send to Washington to represent northeastern Minnesota's sprawling 8th Congressional District. Don't believe he's a rich kid who never had to work a day in his...

Endorsement - Minnesota U.S. Senate: McFadden
If Mike McFadden brings the enthusiasm and focus to the U.S. Senate that he has brought to his candidacy, Minnesotans will be well served. Republican McFadden is challenging first-term Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., and on balance the challenger is making the case for change. That's not...

Endorsement - Minnesota governor: Johnson
Republican Jeff Johnson has the tools and temperament to be an effective counterweight to Minnesota's DFL-dominated Legislature. He should be elected governor, replacing Mark Dayton, who has not demonstrated the convictions or leadership Minnesotans expect from the state's chief executive. Johnson...

Jobs growth is not enough
U.S. business is once again creating jobs in bunches. Payrolls increased 217,000 in May, according to Friday’s monthly update from the Labor Department; it was the fourth straight month of above-200,000 employment growth. All 8.7 million jobs lost during the Great Recession have...

No road work ahead
Both parties want to do nothing but squabble before this year’s election. Not much will stop them — except, perhaps, this dose of reality: If political point-scoring is all they accomplish over the next several weeks, work on the nation’s roads, bridges and rails will come to...

Congress has many ways to achieve its many purposes. The transparent way is to enact a program and pay for it annually out of general revenues or borrowing. The politically easier but less transparent method is to go “off-budget,” via government loans and credit guarantees. Guess...
