Europe: the world’s great no-show
NEW YORK — The Ukraine crisis has shone a spotlight on one of the glaring gaps in the world right now — the lack of a strategic and purposeful Europe. The United States can and should lead on the response to this conflict but nothing can really happen without Europe.

Leadership and the vacant presidency
WASHINGTON — The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement.

When is a U.S.-based company not considered a U.S. company by the IRS? When it buys a smaller firm in a foreign country and — presto chango! — deems that company to be its parent, escaping the obligation to pay taxes to the U.S. Treasury on its foreign earnings.

Don’t count out Bobby Jindal in 2016 race
Bobby Jindal once gave a speech disturbing TV entertainer-commentator Jon Stewart to the point of satiric torture, which is to say, the speech wasn’t just a little awful, but laughably awful. The other day, I saw Jindal give a speech inspiring a massive audience to a standing ovation, which is to say, it is untrue he’s all substance and no show.

Financial reform’s last gasp, or are better days to come?
This week marks the fourth anniversary of the most wide-sweeping financial reform since the Great Depression (known as Dodd-Frank). To avoid another 2008 would be great, but at this date and rate, astonishingly, only half the provisions have been implemented. Is financial reform in its dying days? Are we safer?

Ukraine tragedy demands united response
President Barack Obama was quite correct to offer Russian President Vladimir Putin a finger-wagging lecture last week. Obama said “there will be costs” if Russia proceeds with any military activities in Ukraine.

Speedier hearings won’t solve border crisis
Return on investment is a clear measure of what you get for your money. Incredibly, the federal government doesn’t apply that simple concept to the $137 billion a year it spends on college financial aid.

Hillary’s pricey speeches could be a campaign issue
WASHINGTON — These days a whole lot of money is being spent in anticipation that not only will Hillary Clinton be the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee but she ultimately will win the nation’s highest office.

Suppose you have a child, or you have a grandchild, or you know and love somebody else’s child. Pour everything you have, every virtue you know, into that little pumpkin. Because if you do endear yourself as a pleasant memory, maybe little Jason or Jennifer won’t spend an entire adulthood shrilly condemning you for being one of those selfish thieves.

Not the worst of political times
NEW YORK — The world seems very messy these days, which might be an occasion to examine the broad forces producing the turmoil. But in Washington, of course, it becomes one more opportunity for partisanship.
