Veterans Day 2014 was an unusual day for George W, Bush to publish a biography of his father, George H.W. Bush.
This Supreme Court is not really a court, but another branch dedicating itself to the Republican party's agenda. It is to the fair, balanced and logical application of justice what Fox News is to news.
Congratulations Republicans, you've won control of Congress. Now it's time to put down the talking points, stop your OCD obsession with ObamaCare and ...
While big donors like Tom Steyer and the Democratic Party insiders running Democratic-leaning outside spending groups might not be celebrating over it now, big money -- even losing big money -- matters in Washington.
The electorate that votes in midterm elections is older and whiter and looks more like the viewership of The O'Reilly Factor than anything that accurately reflects the true racial and ethnic diversity of this country.
Some liken the Republican victory to a giant wave. However, when compared to historical elections involving the houses of congress, this win is more like spilling a glass of water. The following elections are the worst defeats of either Democrats or Republicans in the last 100 years.
It is easy to say that leadership is needed. But that is not going to happen, at least for the next two years. There is however one solution.
To those Democrats who don't think this election is important enough for them to exercise their precious right to vote, especially African Americans, Latinos, the young, and women, you will only have yourselves to blame for what comes next. And, yes, it can get worse.
Latinos should send a message to Republicans: We won't support your failed policies, we won't abide by anti-Hispanic rhetoric, and we will always side with political forces that seek to build on the common good, not tear it down.
If President Obama loses the Senate on November 4, it will not be so much a mar on his presidential legacy as it will be a continuation of a recent two-term presidential tradition.
On wages, their rejection of even the concept of a minimum wage shows that Republicans don't care if employers engage in a race to the bottom. Five bucks an hour isn't good enough for you? They'll just find someone else. I thought we'd settled that question during the Great Depression.
Naturally, people -- especially in America -- live in the moment and, given the "crisis" orientation of cable news, think that this is the worst period the country has ever gone through. Not really.
The administration's Iraq policy has failed. The U.S. is more entangled in conflict and war; Americans have been killed in retaliation for Washington's intervention; the Islamic State is still advancing; U.S. allies continue to free ride on America; Washington hopes to square a nonexistent circle in Syria.
We caught "Brownie," as Bush called him, on the air saying he doesn't want "stupid people" to vote, because they're "more likely than not to vote for a Democrat."
While it may not be popular with fellow thugs, the Islamic State has managed to take over much of Iraq and Syria. Predictably, Washington seems more interested in assigning blame for the situation than dealing with it. Sen. John McCain, for instance.
The notion that we see our electoral politics as akin to the 2004 Indonesian tsunami or any of the countless other natural disasters which have killed millions without warning is telling. And what it suggests about who we are politically is of far greater concern than which party narrowly captures the Senate in November.
