CATHERINE RAMPELL: Tesla slams into another roadblock

OPINION: Five states have acted to effectively block sales of the electric-powered autos in their states

To clarify, none of these states has explicitly singled out Tesla in legislative language; instead, they just require anyone wishing to sell a car to consumers to do so through an independent dealership. The middleman, you see, wants his cut.

CAL THOMAS: Jeb Bush -- Read my lips, part II

OPINION: Government does not undertax; it overspends

Republicans need to reject the notion that government needs more money and change the subject to the elimination of wasteful and unnecessary spending. Deep within our DNA remains a Puritan ethic of living within one’s means and not borrowing to pay for what we can’t afford.

EUGENE ROBINSON: What would Republicans do?

OPINION: This year's campaign has been dull and disheartening

No matter how well Republicans do at the polls Tuesday — and my hunch is they won’t do as well as they hope — the GOP won’t be able to claim any kind of mandate. That’s because they have refused to articulate any vision for governing.
