We're going to begin today with a rather loaded question. How much attention do you think the media should be paying towards a presidential nominee w...
One of the most critical qualities of any president is judgment. Therefore, every candidate seeking this high office must clearly possess sound judgment. This includes the ability to perceive facts correctly and assess situations accurately. This quality is absolutely essential.
Lawmakers in Florida recently took a step in the right direction when they voted to put on hold a section of the state's longstanding education reform policy. For the first time since 2003, parents and teachers will have a say in whether their third grader will go on to fourth grade if the child doesn't perform well on their assessment.
As with all the other candidates who have officially thrown their hats in the ring, today we will take a serious look at Santorum and Pataki, and attempt to predict what their chances for victory could be.
Nothing illustrates better the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the Republican war hawks who call themselves presidential candidates than their attempts to whitewash the history of how this nation went to war in Iraq.
In the month and half since Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for President, it has become evident that she will not make the same mistakes as she did in 2008.
I found his statement both reassuring and unsettling. It was comforting to see that Mr. Bush acknowledges the climate is changing. Reading between the lines on whether humans are to blame, however, implies that there's little or nothing we can or should do to mitigate the damage.
The field of Republicans contending for their presidential nomination does not present grandeur.; in truth, it's a pretty weak roster. Take a look at the top names:
The assertiveness of the Gates Foundation in funding its approved version of education reform takes on head-tilting meaning when one considers the organizations that Gates funds "for general operating support."
Jeb has frontally acknowledged the family name problem by loudly declaring that he's not his brother or father. One is the very thing that appears to be his political ball and chain: his name, Bush. In politics, as in life, name identification is everything -- both good and bad.
This was a week of endings. It kicked off with the Mad Men finale, which ended [SPOILER ALERT] with Don Draper meditating on a hilltop, just before we see the famous, "I'd like to teach the world to sing," Coke ad from 1971. Did Don create it? The series is over, but the debate lives on. Next, David Letterman -- after 33 years of smart, stupid, silly, absurd, cool, game-changing comedy -- signed off with a pitch-perfect finale, and a sincere, "Thank you and goodnight." Less bittersweet was Jeb Bush continuing to say goodbye to his senses, following up his Iraq debacle by claiming that it's "arrogant" to say there's a scientific consensus that climate change is man-made. No, what's truly arrogant is denying future generations a livable planet. Continue down this road, and the earth will say goodbye to us all. Now there's an unambiguous finale.
So we're all -- Christians, I mean -- stuck with the Duggars. But the person who's really stuck with them is former Fox News personality Mike Huckabee. They're all over his presidential campaign. Which is why he stood up for them this morning, in a Facebook post that already had 1.7 million likes.
What exactly is it that Jeb's dodging? I think he is trying to escape the "denier" label. He has constructed an extreme strawman in an effort to seem moderate. He addressed the word "denier" in this most recent interview, mocking those (like me, I suppose) who use the word.
On Wednesday, 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush revealed that his mother-in-law, Josefina Gallo Esquivel, is living with Alzheimer's. He asked for people to email him if they have ideas or suggestions about how to wipe out this deadly disease. I have a few.
Time will tell if Marco Rubio survives the 2016 Republican version of demolition derby. What's clear is that despite his cherubic, youthful demeanor, Rubio is a hard-core conservative, every bit as dangerous as his idol, George W. Bush.
Jeb Bush finally got his answer right. Bowing to the political correctness of the moment, the aspiring President Bush III fell into line and spoke the magic words. If I knew then what I know now, I would not have launched an invasion of Iraq.
