Eugene Robinson

Stains on The Decider's legacy getting darker

In retrospect, George W. Bush's legacy doesn't look as bad as it did when he left office. It looks worse.

Eugene Robinson: This decoy could deliver a winner

President's 'backup plan' just might goad Republicans into approving bipartisan immigration reform.

Eugene Robinson: Wrong on drone hits

Obama administration should seek judicial review before targeting Americans in attacks.

Eugene Robinson: On guns, unfinished business

The moment that most deserves to be remembered from Sunday’s thrilling Super Bowl came before the game, when Jennifer Hudson joined students from the Sandy Hook Elementary School in singing “America the Beautiful.” It was a heart-rending elegy for the fallen — and a stirring call to action.

Eugene Robinson: A solvable problem

It was always clear that the 11 million people in this country without papers were not going to be rounded up and deported. The question was when our leaders would officially recognize this fact — which could only happen if Republicans decided that demonizing illegal immigrants was bad politics.

Eugene Robinson: Lost in their own wilderness

Republicans shouldn’t worry that President Obama is trying to destroy the GOP. Why would he bother? The party’s leaders are doing a pretty good job of it themselves.

Eugene Robinson: The amazing grace of it all

President Barack Hussein Obama’s second inauguration was every bit as historic as his first — not because it said so much about the nation’s long, bitter, unfinished struggle with issues of race, as was the case four years ago, but because it said so little about the subject.

Eugene Robinson: No impossible dream

Don’t listen to those who say President Obama’s bold plan to reduce gun violence — including an assault weapons ban — has no chance in Congress. I seem to recall that health care reform was deemed impossible, too. Until it happened.

Eugene Robinson: Our dysfunction quagmire

President Obama is set to begin his second term at a moment when the question is not what great things our nation can achieve but whether our government, in Obama’s words, can “stop lurching from crisis to crisis to crisis.”

Eugene Robinson: Hot enough for you?

All right, now can we talk about climate change? After a year when the lower 48 states suffered the warmest temperatures, and the second-craziest weather, since record-keeping began?

Eugene Robinson: Don't blame Shanahan

The question consuming Washington right now has nothing to do with the debt ceiling, immigration reform or the composition of President Obama’s second-term Cabinet. It’s whether Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan should have pulled his limping superstar, Robert Griffin III, from Sunday’…

Eugene Robinson: Our clown-around Congress

To say that Congress looked like a clown show last week is an insult to self-respecting clowns.

Eugene Robinson: An urgent resolution for 2013

Guns do kill people. Our national New Year’s resolution must be to stop the madness.

Eugene Robinson: Still here? Happy New Bak'tun

If you’re reading this, the Maya were wrong. Rather, they would have been wrong if they’d actually predicted the end of the world, which scholars are pretty sure they didn’t.

Eugene Robinson: On guns, take action now

We are not helpless to stop the massacre of innocent children. We must begin — today, right now, this minute — taking guns out of the hands of madmen, and the first step should be a ban on military-style assault weapons such as the rifle used to turn a Connecticut school into a slaughterhouse.

Eugene Robinson: The peril of a thoughtless GOP

The biggest problem the Republican Party faces is not uninspiring candidates or unsound tactics. It is unpopular ideas.

Eugene Robinson: As an architect, he soared

Just this once, I wish I could write with pictures instead of words. That would make it easier to explain why the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who died Wednesday at 104, was one of my heroes.

Eugene Robinson: Boehner plays a weak hand

Eugene Robinson: Boehner plays a weak hand

How dare he? President Obama, I mean: How dare he do what he promised during the campaign? How dare he insist on a “balanced approach” to fiscal policy that includes an teensy-weensy tax increase for the rich? Oh, the humanity.

Eugene Robinson: A legacy we dare not leave

You might not have noticed that another round of U.N. climate talks is under way, this time in Doha, Qatar. You also might not have noticed that we’re barreling toward a “world ... of unprecedented heat waves, severe drought, and major floods in many regions.” Here in Washington, we’re too b…
