Democratic partisans spread the blame around: President Obama, party leaders, lethargic blue voters, and a hostile media. Nonetheless, there are five elementary lessons to be learned from the debacle.
Ted Cruz immediately took to Facebook and Twitter calling Net Neutrality "Obamacare for the Internet." Shortly after his tantrum, the Internet erupted with cartoons, videos, and comments. After all, the Internet is full of creative people who have unfettered access to the Internet right now.
There's a rough consensus about why Democrats were pulverized in the midterm elections: losing Democratic candidates didn't have a succinct positive message. To understand this problem, it's informative to dissect the campaigns of three incumbent Democratic senators.
George Tsunis, a Democratic campaign bundler, was handsomely rewarded for having raised $843,000 for President Obama's 2012 reelection campaign by being nominated ambassador to Norway. Unfortunately, for Tsunis, he did not fare well during a widely publicized Senate confirmation hearing.
As I wrote on Facebook and again on this petition, I just don't see what good can be gained in the horrific slaughtering of so many children!
It was the first time that the military allowed an organization outside the military to cook for so many soldiers and marines.
There's not one Internet for deep-pocketed corporations and a separate Internet for everyone else -- there's the Internet, and it belongs to all of us. That's the way it's always been. And that's the way it should continue to be.
There's endless speculation about why progressive talk shows repeatedly fail on commercial radio, and the latest to go down is Gloria Neal's morning s...
The powerful, super-wealthy people at the top of the economic food chain have noticed all this populist stirring. Boy, have they noticed. In spite of all their power and wealth, they are offended that anyone is suggesting that the system should be tinkered with. They're speaking out -- in truly silly ways -- and putting their money where their mouths are.
The cost of textbooks has been rising at an average annual rate of six percent. While students no doubt have been aware of the issue all along, cringing at the start of each semester as they tally the costs for course materials, legislators have finally caught on.
The far more important question is how we win the bigger more consequential war that sparked this little back-and-forth this week: the war that Wall Street and the other powers that be are fighting to defeat the progressive populist ideas of our leaders and our movement.
Most men are pro-choice to varying degrees, but unlike the anti-choice activists, are relatively quiet about that. Perhaps that can change a bit.
That's when I found the progressive movement: the informal network of people and organizations working across race, class, sexuality, and origin to hold America to its best values, to the vision that all of us are created equal, and with inalienable rights
Matalin, Reagan and Green debate Obamacare's failed rollout and the GOP's flawless inaction. The panel also discusses how CBS turned Benghazi from a tragedy into a hoax, as well as "Harvard on the Potomac."
As we debated -- and ultimately passed -- the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) this week, I discovered something fascinating: Americans were frankly surprised to learn that in the majority of states, it's still perfectly legal to fire someone because they're gay.
Legislators like Grace Napolitano deserve credit not only for helping at-risk children and teens blend in and succeed in life but also for conceptualizing and implementing creative ventures in spite of the gridlock in Washington.
