Along with the devastation caused by Hurricane and Superstorm Sandy, the nation is being availed of the opportunity to see an American president acting presidential. Barack Obama took time off of the campaign trail to play the part of president that he sought with rare perseverance during his 2008 iteration. It is striking, to see [...]
Who knew the fate of the presidential election would tip on the number of women voting as if their lady parts depend on it? Early on in the presidential race, Barrack Obama’s campaign made the calculation to use young, unmarried, female voters, a group that leans heavily Democratic as a punch card for a second [...]
A New York Times story that the United States and Iran had finally come to an agreement to engage in bilateral talks concerning Iran’s uranium enrichment program has been the talk of the town. Both sides immediately disavowed any knowledge of this clandestine arrangement, of course, and the Times has not given up their source, [...]
Many months have passed since Mitt Romney became the presumptive Republican Party nominee for president of the United States. Far before that, President Barack Obama and his surrogates were at work defining Romney and the choice that voters will face on Election Day. Yet polls consistently find between five and ten percent of the electorate [...]
As if we needed another reason to turn the president out of office, Bloomberg News recently released an internal analysis of the Obama administration’s criminally (both in the figurative and literal sense) deficient adherence to federal law. In the wake of endless federal spending scandals and government investment snafus plaguing these last few years, one [...]
With six weeks until the presidential election, Mitt Romney is fighting an uphill battle against two opponents. Barack Obama is the main opponent, whom by all economic and foreign policy circumstances, should be a paper tiger on Election Day. His second opponent, which for the remainder of the race is increasingly asserting itself as his [...]
Last week Mitt Romney yet again proved what a tremendously terrible president he would be. He chose to make political hay over how a local embassy chief expressed a message of religious tolerance hours before a riot broke out, and laid the blame for this chief’s actions squarely at the feet of President Barack Obama. Rarely have I seen this level of idiocy displayed on the national stage.
Obama must be getting smarter in his old age. Recently he agreed with a statement floating around on Twitter that Bill Clinton should be his “Secretary of Explaining Things.” Lately everyone seems to be gobbling up Clinton’s particular brand of bullshit, but that is nothing new. Obama could learn a thing or two about how politics is actually played from a man like Bill Clinton. He may be the most gifted politician of his generation… and I do not mean that as a compliment.
The Republican National Convention was its usual clot of cloying, decrepit and tiresome swill. More money for the rich, less money for the poor, starving and homeless. More money for the overly bloated military-industrial complex (even Ron Paul knows this is bad), less money for college students and the elderly. It was the often repeated mantra of liberty and justice for all… who can afford it. Everyone else is SOL.
It is sad to see men who so nobly served their country become shills for the RNC meatgrinder. A group of Special Forces veterans are being used by Republican strategists to sully the Obama-led Osama bin Laden raid. Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, founded by a former Navy SEAL and failed politician named Scott Taylor, [...]
