Over the last two weeks, the Republican and Democratic National Conventions dominated the news cycle, so it's no surprise that they each got a lot of ...
Since Mitt Romney and Barack Obama have been pitted against each other on nearly every possible issue, it's only fair to evaluate who did a better job of popping the question.
You love us? Really? All of us? Even the poor, the unmarried, the homosexual, the oversexed, and the overworked?
Romney (whose chatter about hers and Mitt's basement apartment seemed like just another bright shining, er, unlikelihood) telegraphed her husband's interpretation of the "American Dream": work hard and you can become successful -- that is, rich and famous.
Really I don't think I could have handled four nights of the GOP convention in Tampa. Thank goodness I was able to flip between tennis and the conven...
I would like to offer a deal to the GOP. Just stay quiet about your heterosexuality and live your lives, and we will keep mum about our little "gay issues." All you have to do is deny your spouses, your families, and your friends, plus ignore your interests, passions, and entertainments.
If you take Mitt Romney's speech a as sign not of his own perspective but of his party's, and contrast it with George W. Bush's acceptance message, the fear and darkness that have infiltrated the GOP is marked and alarming.
Mitt Romney badly needed to connect with women at this convention and having Ann Romney, Condoleezza Rice and Susana Martinez speak may have been a step in the right direction. However, none of these women spoke about his policy on women's issues.
America is too big to wrap your brain around, at least all at once. So, apparently, is the GOP.
If they are so special to the point that, as Ann Romney said, "women hold the country together," why can't they be trusted to make their own decisions about their bodies?
The buses have finally left, the barricades are being sent to wherever they came from, and Tampa is getting back to normal, whatever that is. I took ...
To refuse to recognize the changing times is the worst kind of denial -- one that breeds backward-looking policies and irrelevant debate. Our society and our economy need us.
It is hard to see that Barack Obama and his political managers will let such an opportunity go untapped. A rebuttal to Clint Eastwood in some form or the other must be expected. It will certainly be one of the high points of the DNC.
President Obama made no claim that he built that by himself. On Labor Day, he recognizes the contributions union and non-union workers made to building this great country. All Americans built that.
What was he thinking? Was this just a pathetic attempt by an aging Hollywood icon to stay relevant? And did you catch the cutaway of Ann Romney during Eastwood's unscripted, meandering, 3-times-as-long-as-planned meltdown?
There is no excuse for even one major political speech to be poorly written. But three? Romney should fire his entire team for having the three most important speeches of the GOP convention so poorly written and poorly framed.
