    The economic recovery since the Great Recession of 2007-09 has generally been pretty meager. In fact, President Barack Obama has the dubious distinction of being the only president never to see at least 3 percent year-over-year economic growth since Herbert Hoover during the early days of the Great Depression in the 1930s.

    As Iraqi troops battle Islamic State fighters street by street in the northern city of Mosul, another crucial phase in the bid to neutralize the militant group is shaping up 230 miles to the west. A joint Kurdish-Arab militia has begun encircling Raqqa, the Islamic State’s de facto capital in Syria.

    After the second election in 16 years in which the winner of the national popular vote will be denied the presidency, talk has resurfaced about the shortcomings of the Electoral College, the convoluted system by which our chief executive is actually chosen.

    WASHINGTON — As a Donald Trump victory became clear Tuesday night, the ghost of Herbert Hoover paid a visit to Trump’s election night party in New York.

    WASHINGTON — The Republican Party resembles the man who told his psychiatrist, “I have an identity problem, and so do I.” The party’s leader is at best indifferent to, and often is hostile to, much of the party’s recent catechism: limited government, the rule of law, a restrained executive, fiscal probity, entitlement reforms, free trade, the general efficiency and equity of markets allocating wealth and opportunity, and — this matters especially — the importance of decorousness in political discourse.

    Donald J. Trump was elected president of the United States Tuesday in free and fair elections.
