Whether or not you voted for Romney in 2012 (and even whether you like Mitt personally or not), I believe he would make a remarkable president. As...
Hating Obama should not be an effective political organizing strategy, but is indeed in the absence of any effective Democratic backbone to counter right-wing absurdities. Democrats deserve their losses; they ceded the battle before it began.
Based on his polls, Mitt Romney was so confident that he would be America's president today that he neglected to have a concession speech written. Vot...
It is not at all surprising that it is in those parts of America that conceive of moral requirements in the most harsh and absolutist terms that we find the strongest impulse to deal with those below them not with compassion but with punitive demands.
In six days, the nation will render its collective judgment in the midterm elections, and none of us knows what voters will do when they choose their poison on Election Day.
Today, tomorrow, and in all my days before I die, I will be the president of my life despite who I vote to be the president of the United States. I take ownership of my failures and my successes, and I think the country would be significantly changed if we all did across all parties.
Speaking just like an American Republican, the Communist Chinese-appointed leader of Hong Kong, Leung Chun-ying, said last week that if the state granted democratic rights to its poor and working class, they could dominate elections and choose leaders who would meet their needs.
I'm no Doogie Howser, but isn't this medically certifiable in the real world? If the guy at the corner bar, or at the table next to you, says such nuttiness, don't you move away? I know I do. Weirdo's bother me. Call me old-fashioned. This is Fox News, 2014, stirring the pot. It's what they do.
This week, school officials in Alabama put a 5-year-old girl on a suicide and homicide watch after she pointed a crayon at a kindergarten classmate and said "pew! pew!" Yes, this is real.
Democrats in Congress decided not to provide coverage to the estimated 11.5 million undocumented residents in the U.S. Actually, it'd be more accurate to say that many of them were unwilling to vote for a reform bill enabling undocumented residents to buy coverage on the state health insurance exchanges out of fear of jeopardizing their re-election chances.
Fantasy makes great television and literature. It also makes poor public policy. Poverty denial molds how many conservatives, and even independents, understand economic deprivation.
Vote your interests in November. Continue to be partisan to your heart's delight. Just don't call yourself a patriot if you search to find reasons to disregard objective facts, data and documented history in an attempt to justify rooting against a sitting president.
Frum-Alter disagree on two big topics: is Obama's ISIS strategy of "containment" capable of driving the group back? Can Republicans come back by developing economic solutions for anxious middle-class boomers and by being culturally tolerant? How do either when right-wing media dumbs base down?
Barack Obama deserves credit for delivering on his promise to shrink the deficit -- a promise that Mitt Romney and his tax cuts would surely have violated -- but Americans have to ask themselves whether they really want a smaller government.
In recent days and weeks there has been renewed speculation that Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee for president will again be a candidate in 2...
The GOP is working desperately to deny the right to vote to citizens it doesn't like. You know, poor people, black people, Hispanic people, old people, female people, especially people it believes are inclined to vote for Democrats.
