The remark was so off-base, it's truly disturbing to remember that it was not made by some Joe the Plumber off the street, your old, staunchly conservative Uncle Antonin at the family barbecue, but rather by a legislator who has a unique say in the life or death of the VRA.
Reckoned to be about 17 percent of the nation's population, this group gave seven-tenths of its vote to Barack Obama on Election Day last November. This has caused, understandably, considerable consternation for the current GOP.
Will Jerry Brown be unopposed for reelection? Technically, no. Effectively? We'll see.
Thank you, Chris Wallace! Without you and Fox News, I never would have known that Republicans still think it's everybody else's fault that they lost in 2012.
Remember when we pilloried John McCain for singing about bombing Iran? Wouldn't it be a scandal if it turned out that California Senator Barbara Boxer and Oregon Senator Ron Wyden were pushing the same agenda? I have bad news, I'm afraid. They are.
The Romney campaign headquarters is located at 585 Commercial St. in the North End of Boston. The air conditioning is unpredictable. Like Romney, it first subjects us to an arctic freon blast, then overcompensates, exhausting us with hot air. It's clearly not environmentally friendly.
Now Mara wants the support of the people of the District, including Latinos, the LGBT community and women. But why would anyone in those communities support him?
Republicans have always been better than Democrats at creating straw men. I'm not referring to those floppy figures we see in cornfields from time to time, but rather, those scarecrows that don't scare any crow with half a brain.
There will be no end to tax loopholes for the rich, House Speaker John Boehner has asserted. The Republican ruling: The vast middle class, the elderly and the poor must suffer.
Because the U.S. has been governed by the same two parties for more than 150 years, it is not uncommon for one of the parties to be riven by an ideological split. The conflict in today's Republican Party is different. Although there are policy elements to it, most of the differences are personal.
There was no question. If I was going to land this job, if I stood any chance at infiltrating the Republican party, I would have to make it all disappear.
I'm all for decreasing people's dependence on government programs -- they diminish the inherent, well-earned pride of full-time work. But we have to start paying them for their work first. It's hard to make a living when the "makers" make the laws.
Rig the Vote is the evil opposite of Rock the Vote. Rock is the campaign by a nonprofit to increase political engagement and register young people. Rig is the campaign by the GOP to suppress political engagement and subvert balloting.
The GOP remains so obstinate and unwilling to give the White House even the tiniest of victories they filibustered a Cabinet appointment... from their own party.
The Republican Party was done a disservice last night. It was a bashing session of President Obama when it could have been a grand opportunity to show the direction the GOP is moving in.
If Paul and Rubio's speeches are any indication of where the Republican Party is heading, it looks like the 2016 nominating season will be more substantive than 2012.
