  • Gulf War III isn’t an option Feb 26, 2012 12:00 AM
    Eugene Robinson: Gulf War III is not an option to Iran's wading into the nuclear pool.

  • Pay close attention to China Feb 21, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: It is useful to remember that the country we now think of as a trillion-dollar creditor and the manufacturer of iPads was once a Maoist bastion, hermetically sealed against the capitalist influences of the Western world.

  • A religious war out of thin air Feb 16, 2012 5:23 AM
    Syndicated Columnist Eugene Robinson: The “war on religion” alarmists are just like Minaj and Madonna in one key respect: Lacking a coherent point to make, they go for shock value.

  • Romney’s overriding ambition Feb 12, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: Mitt Romney has been forthright, consistent and even eloquent in pressing home his campaign’s central theme: Romney desperately wants to be president. Everything else seems mushy or negotiable.

  • Romney’s indifference to the poor Feb 7, 2012 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: There was something disturbing about the icy way in which Romney, even when trying to clarify his initial remark, continued to insist that the poor receive government help and therefore need not be a focus of his policies.

  • The GOP’s assault on Gingrich Jan 31, 2012 11:25 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: Eventually, the Republican Party's shock-and-awe campaign against Newt Gingrich may work. But then what?

  • An argument Obama can win Jan 29, 2012 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: The Republicans who are running the party laugh at the concepts of fairness and collective responsibility. Soon they may find the joke’s on them.

  • Obama can’t celebrate just yet Jan 25, 2012 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: So should champagne corks be popping at the White House? No, or at least not yet. It’s important to remember that with unemployment at 8.5 percent and Republicans having won a sweeping victory in 2010, Obama faces an electoral headwind.

  • A candidate as fringe as fringe can be Jan 10, 2012 5:02 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: It’s quite difficult for a president to change the nation’s culture. The prospect of a Santorum presidency is a source of alarm.

  • Search and destroy mission Jan 6, 2012 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: Mitt Romney still hasn’t proved that he can break through that 25 percent ceiling he keeps bumping against. And he has to deal with a Newt Gingrich who is wounded and angry.

  • The 3 a.m. call that demands leadership Dec 23, 2011 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: Intemperate words or deeds, however, could be destabilizing at a moment of sudden transition. This is no moment to apply sharp pressure to a hermetically sealed, supremely paranoid regime that considers itself perpetually besieged and happens to possess nuclear weapons.

  • A mild victory in South Africa Dec 18, 2011 5:47 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: Climate talks seemed likely to go nowhere until the Chinese delegate announced that Beijing was willing to consider a legally binding framework for regulating emissions. With China now responsible for fully 23 percent of the world’s carbon emissions, this was an enormous step forward.

  • China’s future up in the air Dec 11, 2011 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: China has to find a way to continue its rapid growth without choking to death. Literally. When I landed in Beijing last week, the sky was a brownish miasma through which distant landmarks were only faintly visible.

  • The two faces of China Dec 6, 2011 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: The iconic portrait of Chairman Mao that looks out over Tiananmen seems anachronistic. At least in the urban centers, today’s China has abandoned communism in favor of a kind of hypercapitalism.

  • Seeing a changing China from within Dec 2, 2011 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: Yes, China is governed — in an authoritarian, repressive, at times shockingly brutal manner — by a regime that calls itself communist. But communism self-immolated two decades ago. Walk down any commercial street in Beijing. Communism is no longer a system in China.

  • Waiting for the GOP’s love Nov 29, 2011 6:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: Mitt Romney knows the issues. He says all the right things. So why do Republicans keep getting infatuated with these fire-breathing suitors who always, in the end, break the GOP’s heart?

  • The breakthrough still needed Nov 22, 2011 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: Here in the real world — where tax receipts as a percentage of gross domestic product are lower than they’ve been since 1950 — it’s ridiculous to think of solving the long-term debt problem without substantial new revenue.

  • The Republicans’ message problem Nov 18, 2011 5:00 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: What the Republican field has utterly failed to do is develop a convincing narrative about the economy. The candidates act as if widespread disappointment with the performance of Obama and the Democrats will be enough to win the election.

  • Same candidate keeps winning GOP debates Nov 14, 2011 6:20 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: Don’t laugh too hard at Rick Perry for his mortifying episode of brain-lock at Wednesday’s GOP presidential candidates’ debate. His opponents managed to remember their lines, but didn’t do any better at making sense.

  • The Mitt might not fit Nov 7, 2011 5:13 AM
    Columnist Eugene Robinson: It’s hard to imagine that any of the other candidates can seriously challenge Romney, or that some new contender could enter the race. But did anyone think the words “Herman Cain” and “front-runner” would ever appear in the same sentence?
