The media keeps suggesting that the racism regarding candidates has to do with whites not wanting to vote for a black man, even though Barack Obama won a presidential election with a great amount of white support in 2008. What the media isn’t talking about is the NBC-Wall Street survey results which say that there are basically no black supporters for the Caucasian candidate, Mitt Romney, in 2012.
The early returns are in and, according to the Neilson rating company, the Democrats beat the Republicans… and the NFL.
In an odd turn of events, the Republicans in Tampa nominated real life versions of their cartoon versions of Kerry and Gore. Republicans thought John Kerry should be criticized for changing positions. But Kerry is not in the same league as Romney who ran as a pro-choice candidate and promised to do more for gay rights than Ted Kennedy.
Last night, Clint Eastwood produced the most bizarre and uncomfortable moments in modern convention history. If Mitt Romney cannot get his campaign right. If he cannot even get the things that he can control right, how can he make the case that he can run the country?
The whole concept of warring on women is totally sexist. The truth is that women are speaking for themselves, doing a damn good job of expressing their views quite clearly and eloquently, and they don’t need the media speaking for them – especially the male-intense media of 2012.
Republicans are kept accountable for their own misspeaks and actions. Unlike the Democrats’ life jacket being tossed out to a sinking politician by the Party, when a Republican politician does the inexcusable, the Republican Party throws him an anchor – and that’s how it should be.
Some progressive Democrats in New Jersey want to make sure the state does not enact strict new voter ID laws they say could lead to suppression at the polls.
Yesterday the Obama administration put in place provisions of the DREAM Act that brought many young people out of the shadows to participate in the American Dream. On the same day a judge in Pennsylvania let stand what may be the most egregious attempt at voter suppression in a generation.
In an effort to distract voters from his tax records, W. Mitt Romney launched a four pronged push back yesterday. Romney’s problem: each move revealed more about the problems with his floundering campaign.
How dare Harry Reid, the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate, spew his latest unsubstantiated rumors against Mitt Romney?
When Mitt is back home, will the offensive comments stop? Republicans can only hope so because this race is too important to be decided by “how much America likes one guy over another”. But such a factor could very well decide the outcome of this election.
Pennsylvania Republicans have betrayed their country and devised a scheme to potentially disqualify nearly one tenth of the states’ electorate.
My insurance company spent too little on actual health care delivery so my family is getting a refund. If Obamacare is a tax, it’s the greatest tax ever.
With all that is and should be important to Americans – just over a hundred days before we select our president – it is baffling as to why the media is so hell-bent on holding on to the Bain Capital story involving presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Harry Reid got – as he often does – in calling Republican donors “angry old white men”. Imagine the reaction if House Speaker John Boehner were to say something such as: support or donations to Obama made by 17 angry black men.
