President Barack Obama will arrive in Annapolis on Wednesday to speak to U.S. Senate Democrats who plan to gather at the Westin hotel next week, the White House said Friday. The address will not be open to the public or to reporters. Democratic senators plan to meet in Annapolis on Tuesday and Wednesday for an annual retreat. The meeting is also largely closed to the public and reporters. Obama frequently visits the congressional retreats, such as last year's meeting of House Democrats in Cambridge.

After endlessly trying to repeal and replace "Obamacare," the GOP has come up empty-handed. The health-care law appears to be gaining more public acceptance. So congressional Republicans are doing what they can to revive another old hobby horse - Benghazi. The name of the Libyan city where an American ambassador and three consulate officials were killed in a terrorist raid on Sept. 11, 2012 has become shorthand for what Republicans argue is a continuing political cover-up by the Obama administration.

I vowed I was not going to get involved again the next time the Obama White House went after Fox News. And I kept to that promise Tuesday when Jay Carney, White House press secretary, took a nasty and totally uncalled for shot at Ed Henry during the former CNN White House correspondent's first press briefing in his new job at Fox News. Carney gave voice to the administration's long-held narrative that the Fox News agenda is determined not by journalistic values, but rather "talking points" from the Republican Party -- that Fox is a propaganda wing of the party, not a "legitimate" news organization.

I was dismayed by your recent, misleading article on the Republican's responsibility for the budget sequester (The GOP sequester," Feb. 22). Jack Lew, the White House chief of staff and budget director, set up the sequester in 2011, and Rob Nabors, the White House congressional relations chief, presented it to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, with President Obama's approval. All this is documented in Bob Woodward's book "The Price of Politics. " When asked about his role in the sequestration, Mr. Lew told the Senate Finance Committee "what I did was say that with all other options closed, we needed to look for an option where we could agree on how to resolve our differences.

I won't retrace the whole issue here, but CBS News is long overdue for some praise at this blog for investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson excellent work on the Department of Justice's "Operation Fast and Furious. " The blowback from the White House and DOJ has been petty, nasty and has failed to responsibly address the serious charges Attkisson's reporting raises. This is exactly the White House contempt for the press that I wrote about shortly after Obama's inauguration. It's the White House I came to know when I criticized it for its war against Fox News in 2009.

We are just days away from a cataclysm of biblical proportions. The cuts foretold in the Budget Control Act of 2011 are young as far as prophecies go, but apparently they are every bit as terrifying as rivers of blood and plagues of locusts. Any day now we can expect White House spokesman Jay Carney to take to the podium and read a prepared statement: "And when he opened the seventh seal, there was a small decrease in the rate of increase in federal spending. " The great game in Washington is who will get the blame for something both House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama agree will be calamitous for the country.

    In the rest of the country, it may be just another movie, but in Washington, Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" has become a political Rorschach test. It seems as if every pundit in the capital has gone to see the masterful biopic about our 16th president, and - surprise - they all found something to support their views about contemporary politics. The analogies are hard to resist. The movie is set in the first months after Lincoln won a second term, facing an unruly lame-duck Congress.

Should we bomb Iran for plotting to blow up a Washington, D.C., restaurant in order to assassinate the Saudi ambassador? Probably not. Should Iran be worried that we might? Absolutely. And yet, within hours of the Justice Department charging elements within the Iranian government (the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard) of scheming to commit an act of war against us, the administration made it clear that it wanted a diplomatic response to the foiled scheme.

As Eliza Doolittle put it in "My Fair Lady": "Words, words words, I'm so sick of words!" Once again, in the wake of the latest shooting spree in Colorado, presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney ran a race to the microphones to deplore it, with more words of sympathy than promises or plans to do anything about it. Mr. Obama, who hops aboard Air Force One at the drop of a megabucks fund-raiser these days, jetted out to Colorado to commiserate...

President Barack Obama will visit a construction company in Rockville on Thursday to discuss the impact the government shutdown is having on businesses. Obama is expected to visit M. Luis Construction, a Baltimore-based company that is one the state's largest minority-owned contractors. The resurfacing company did $7.5 million in contracting business with the state of Maryland last year. A company spokeswoman declined to comment on Thursday. "The president will highlight the impacts that a shutdown and default would have on our economy and our nation's small businesses," White House spokesman Jay Carney said.
