Opinion: Romney Will Be Incredible In The Presidential Debate

Romney – the challenger – will be incredible. Obama – the incumbent – will be damaged. The question is, how severely he will be damaged?

Opinion: Obama Says He Is Bored With Debate Prep, Really He’s Afraid To Defend His Failed Record

Preparing for this debate has got to be the most depressing thing Obama has ever done. He must be staring at facts and figures that he can hardly believe – and then realize he has to defend them come Wednesday night – with his biggest critic, Mitt Romney – and the nation – staring at him. It’s going to be terrible for Obama.

Opinion: Unlike Obama, Romney Has A Plan To Save Social Security

Unlike Obama, Mitt Romney has been talking about his plan to save Social Security on the campaign trail in the recent past. Though it is getting little to no coverage in the national press, it should be getting the positive “buzz” it deserves.

Opinion: Despite Obama Attacks Romney Will Win The Senior Vote

Obama has been moving the needle with seniors using distorted arguments about Social Security and Medicare. Fortunately for GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney, seniors’ top concern is the economy’s struggles under Obama and seniors have overwhelming voted Republican in the last two presidential elections.

Opinion: Obama: I Actually Believe In Redistribution

President Barack Obama is in favor of the extremely controversial idea of redistribution of the nation’s wealth. Basically, Obama believes that everyone should “have a shot” at the good life and great opportunities in life whether they’ve worked for them or not – paid for by those who have acquired their wealth and success-related opportunities in life via hard work.

Opinion: Romney’s 47% Don’t Pay Taxes Remark Is 100% Controversy

Romney thought he was talking amongst his teammates in the locker room last May 17 only to find out that there was somebody on the other team hiding behind the lockers. Had he known a member of the other team was lurking back there, he would have chosen his words more carefully and had presented more carefully-chosen data than the data of which he swiftly generalized.

Opinion: Democratic Party’s Lies And Spins

The blatant lies and the desperate spins generated from the “left” have been absolutely frightening. What’s extremely sad for them is that they don’t have a prayer of keeping the White House without creating lies and spinning obvious negatives into self-reported positives.

Opinion: Obama Fails To Address Black America’s Disappointments With His Presidency

Many who supported Obama in 2008 did so because they believed that he would help black Americans. The criticism four years later is that having a black president in the White House hasn’t helped African Americans at all.

Opinion: Romney Talks Tough On China But Romney And Bain Bought Chinese Factory

Mitt Romney and Bain Capital purchased a factory in China that took on the demand from outsourcing from other US companies. So they profited by increasing profits from companies they owned by shipping jobs overseas and they profited from other companies shipping jobs overseas by doing the work that used to be done in cities and towns across America.

Opinion: Occupy Wall Street’s First Anniversary

Occupy Wall Street made the world aware of Wall Street’s nearly-obscene inequities. But, unfortunately, that has been about it. How much has really changed because of the 12-month-old movement?

Opinion: Economic Confidence Rises Despite Republican Efforts Against It

Republicans will continue to talk down the economy for the next two months specifically because they want the economy, and the country, to suffer in order to win an election.

Opinion: Democrats Take Their Turn With Gaffes And Negative Press At Convention

Commonly referred to as “what goes around, comes around’, the Republicans are finding plenty to take shots at as the Democrats conduct their week in the ‘often dubious’ political spotlight called “the Convention”.

Opinion: We Are Better Off Than We Were Four Years Ago

Tonight, when Vice President Biden and President Obama address the country the question before them is an obvious one: are we better off than we were four years ago? The answer is equally obvious: YES!

Opinion: Democrats Offer A Positive Vision For The Future At Convention After GOP Offers Only Attacks

Sitting in the Time Warner Cable Arena last night I was struck by how different the Democratic National Convention was from the Republican event last week. Unlike the Republicans in Tampa, Democrats focused on the fight to preserve the middle class and the American Dream.
