Marco Rubio claims he is against government choosing winners and losers, but Rubio's support of Big Sugar in Florida and against proactive measures to veer away from climate change impacts is making losers of us all.
In an interview with CNN on February 8, Senator Ted Cruz said, "In my view, American boots on the ground should always be the last step, and we need t...
"I'm a unifier," said Donald Trump, the odds-on favorite to be the Republican Party's nominee. Commonly referred to as a divider, a bully, bombastic, someone who embraces scaremongering, is erratic, thin-skinned and a ticking-time bomb, I'm not sure it's conceivable that a statement from "The Donald" could be further from the truth.
The American people will have a clear choice this November, no matter who the nominees are. The Democrats are united in favoring expanding, not cutting, Social Security. The Republicans stand against expanding, and with the exception of Trump, for deep cuts to Social Security.
This time, the goal was not finding someone who could beat Trump to the 1,237 delegates needed for a first ballot victory in Cleveland in July, but instead simply to deny Trump a first ballot victory.
Republican voters face a bad choice. The Donald's shortcomings are manifest. Marco Rubio may be young, well-spoken, and attractive. But his foreign policy judgment is awful. If you want more foolish, costly, and unnecessary wars, vote for Rubio.
We had two Democratic debates and one Republican debate last week. The GOP one was shocking -- because nobody said anything shocking! Yes, that's truly how far the Republicans have sunk -- to the Sherlockian level of the dog not snarling in the night being the big news.
After the chaos of the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, Senator George McGovern and his colleagues developed a series of reforms to the primary system, including getting rid of many "winner-take-all primaries" for his party.
Trump, Cruz, and Rubio (and Kasich) want to show the American people that they would be wise stewards of America's foreign relations. And yet whenever foreign policy is discussed in these debates, they hurt themselves as soon as they open up their mouths.
The point that needs to be made and is often missed, when it comes to the utterances from the right-wing crazy train, is that the presidency is a real job and requires the person to fill that job to live in reality.
The focus of the media was the "civility" of this debate compared to previous ones, combined with typical horse race speculations about which candidate won and which lost. Well, I can't tell you who won, but I can tell you who lost: the American people lost.
Trump's own supporters have been hoping that at long last Trump would act like the frontrunner, and last night he did.
Thank you for coming in today, Mr. Trump. We know it's been an awkward few months, and we appreciate your willingness to meet with us, so we can see if we're the right fit for each other.
I thought these last two fairy tales might be a fitting end to this crazy election campaign, in which many think the U.S. voters have lost their polit...
Sorry, no sale. The Republican Party establishment really is not this weak. And Donald Trump, while far stronger than all but a few media experts thought until, well, a few weeks ago, is not this strong.
"If you could change one thing about the campaign finance system after going through all this as a candidate, what would you change?," asked Todd. "I don't know," said Sen. Rubio. Really?
