The GOP field shows no clear favorite as yet; it includes some veterans of prior races as well as some maiden entries (literally and figuratively). Let's consult the racing form as it stands just now.
It seems many do not know THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT IS LAW and its major provisions will be implemented SOON!
For Democrats this is too good to be true. While Republicans continue to try to smear former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Benghazi, she long ago accepted her share of responsibility, and her popularity continues to tower above all national figures in American public life.
Barack Obama's mother was born in Kansas... Ted Cruz's mother was born in Delaware. Barack Obama's father was born in Kenya... Ted Cruz's father was born in Cuba. See a pattern?
Barack Obama has proven, throughout his Presidency, that he cares little about the public's welfare. For example, Allen Frances noted, on April 12th,...
It is time to pass the torch from the extremism, division and obstruction of Republicans to the leadership of opportunity and aspiration that was ignited with the election of Obama -- and would be culminated by the election of President Hillary Clinton.
...let the liberal media and "Clintonistas" keep commanding the airwaves, newspapers and Internet 24/7 for the next two years with "Hillary is a shoo-...
When deciding whether or not to run, one thing is certain: Hillary is in it to win it. If she doesn't think she can win, she's not going to spend the time, money, resources, and energy. Better to focus her mind and talents elsewhere.
The road to political and economic ruin for the Democrats began in the late spring of 2013, when President Obama agreed to a budget grand bargain that cut deficits by 2.8 trillion dollars over ten years, deflated a fragile recovery, and left no room for more than token domestic spending on jobs or infrastructure. The cuts were somewhat "back-loaded" -- bigger later in the decade. But in 2014 they took $200 billion out of the budget. According to CBO, that cut the growth rate by a full percentage point. As part of the deal, more Medicare costs were shifted to patients, and the cost-of-living adjustment for Social Security was cut. Both changes, proposed in Obama's own budget, reduced purchasing power by over $100 billion among the elderly -- who surprised experts by backing Republicans by a margin of 59-41, according to exit polls. The 2013 budget deal, according to Roger Hickey of Campaign for America's Future, "left the Democrats with bragging rights as deficit hawks, but not on the real economy."
For the first time in decades -- perhaps since his father denounced Ronald Reagan's voodoo economics in the 1980 primaries -- the old Republican playbook has run its course. In the chaos of today's GOP, Jeb Bush can actually write his own script.
No matter what happens, Senator Paul represents a redefining of America's conservative party, and regardless of how electable he is now, his posturing should send a clear message to Democrats.
The inescapable fact is that Paul's victory in Kentucky, his image as a maverick politician, and basically his whole act revolves around being the anti-establishment senator, the enfant terrible of Washington. The moment he stops doing that, he will no longer be authentic.
Hillary's announcement now just feeds into the notion that she's being opportunistic because the numbers have changed. Her support is welcome but the video makes a big production out of something her supporters take for granted by now.
Former Obama campaign manager and senior adviser David Plouffe spoke with PBS's Jeff Greenfield on March 17, 2013 at 92Y. In this clip, Plouffe answer...
The Republican brand and many of its candidates are seen as intolerant throwbacks to a time gone by and not compassionate to where people are in their lives.
I previewed the highly-anticipated findings of the "Growth and Opportunity" project by the GOP. It is estimated that 71 percent of Latinos, 73 percent of Asians and 93 percent of African-Americans voted for President Obama last November.
