President Obama sent a warning shot across the bow of congressional Republicans in his Labor Day speech in Detroit this afternoon, pledging to hold them accountable publicly if they fail to support the job-creation plan he puts forth later this week. The proposal he'll outline in his address to Congress on Thursday is filled with “bipartisan ideas,” Obama said, and Republicans can either get on board or explain their refusal to the American people. “I'm going to propose ways to put people to work [that]

The Justice Department filed suit Wednesday to block AT&T's proposed $39-billion takeover of wireless rival T-Mobile USA, with its top antitrust lawyer declaring, "Any way you look at this transaction, it is anticompetitive. " Only the most ideologically hidebound supporters of the deal ever claimed it would boost competition, however.

Facing the most intense calls yet for his resignation, Rep. Anthony Weiner said Saturday that he will seek professional help in the wake of a still-raging scandal over his online sexual liaisons with at least six women.

Though gunfights continued in the streets of Tripoli and Moammar Kadafi's whereabouts were unknown, the debate had already begun in political circles Monday about whether the crumbling of the Kadafi regime was a victory for President Obama. Obama has shouldered criticism for months from Republican rivals, as well as members of his own party, about the cost of the mission and his decision to commit U.S. military resources without congressional approval. Even Republican candidates who supported some level of U.S. military involvement in Libya, like Republican front-runner Mitt Romney, often accused Obama of devoting more than $1 billion toward a mission that had no clear strategy or endgame.
