For all those who may have temporarily, let's say, forgotten or even denied that there is any substantive difference between the Democratic and Republican parties, this decision should remind you exactly what those differences are.
If reform passes, then it's a double victory, because the weaker the Republican party gets, the stronger our country gets. But either way, the civil war within the Republican party is on, and it's only getting worse.
Vatterott College, which has a long record of abusing students and leaving them deep in debt, is owned by TA Associates, a private equity firm financially tied to Mitt Romney's own private equity firm and to the 2012 Romney presidential campaign.
Could John McCain or Mitt Romney have gotten away with what President Barack Obama is doing? Where Democrats once feverishly denounced the actions of George W. Bush, they are now eerily silent when their own candidate behaves in much the same way as his predecessor.
One reason the CAAN'T campaign backfired is because nobody knows who to root for when one bully beats up another bully.
I imagine Romney in the setting of a Mad Men-like office, activating the intercom on his desk. "Ann, get Mormon God on the phone, see if we can't move some things around and maybe postpone this hurricane."
Show trials and screw-ups do not make for true "scandals." But what about GOP efforts to in effect deny the original intent of Article II when it comes to Obama's constitutional power to name judges? Spitzer & Matalin debate this as well as the NSA and Rice-Power appointments.
The action and, surprisingly, the political and social commentary that seems to criticize republican ideological dogma still has me pondering what I thought would be a run-of-the-mill slasher movie.
As national security advisor, she doesn't have to be a natural diplomat with a gift of politesse. She has to be smart, analytical, articulate, and hard-working. And she has to have the confidence of the president. Which she clearly does.
Under a federal law enacted in 2010, taxpayers now fund efforts by presidential nominees to begin their White House transition efforts even before the election. Unfortunately, it appears that Romney has now turned those taxpayer resources into yet another opportunity to make money.
The same guys who brought us some of the biggest political missteps in American history have now unveiled a chronicle of all the other missteps they had in mind but never got a chance to execute. I'm talking about the Romney Readiness Project 2012.
I sided with Germany when I was 16 and with Japan by my late-20s. Their vehicles were simply superior to American ones in most every way. I now side with America for the first time, having recently purchased my first American car.

My hope is that the GOP's leaders read these numbers and adopt both a tone and policy stances that unite rather than divide.
I'm not one to let the Republicans get away with much, as anyone knows who's read any part of this blog, but there's only one word to describe NPR's coverage of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's recent lap-band surgery -- unfair.
The jobs report is not looking good. Unemployment is up to 8.2 percent. If the economy is really what this is all about, I suppose Romney might actually win this thing. This is not good. But hey, in brighter economic news: Romney fundraiser means free bagels for Brykman!
