Lynn University hosted the final presidential debate of the 2012 election. I'm often asked by members of our community and the media, "Was it worth it?" Was the presidential debate worth all the hard work and money spent?

Mitt Romney Is a Proven Bipartisan Leader for Tough Economic Times. I Endorse Him for President

James Marshall Crotty | Posted 01.23.2014 | Politics
James Marshall Crotty

By growing this economy in earnest through across-the-board tax cuts, job training, energy infrastructure, smart regulation, a strong dollar, and by ending the job-destroying demonizing of job creators, big and small, Mr. Romney will reverse that decline from day one.

Hillary Women Will Save Obama

Brent Budowsky

I predict that the voter turnout among women who most admire Hillary Rodham Clinton is being underestimated in the turnout models of all major pollsters, and if I am right by even a small percent this will shake the foundation of a razor-thin election.

I'm Voting for Barack Obama Because I Believe Progress Is Possible

Since we are now only a few weeks away from the beginning of the 2016 election season, a refresher as to what to expect during the next four years is in order, and that explanation may help explain how it was that three weeks before the election there were still undecided voters.

Obama and Israel: The Record, the Facts

The critics are simply wrong. Obama has been an exceptional supporter of Israel where it counts -- on the hard-core security and diplomatic issues that provide assistance and protection in a very dangerous region.

Obama Finds Mojo, Wins Final Debate

It was a reversal of the first debate where Obama was professorial and pensive, while Romney appeared assertive and competent. In the third debate the Republican candidate was the one with the "deer caught in the headlights" expression.

Romney's performance in the third and final debate was so bad, that even though this race remains extremely close, Romney may have actually sealed President Obama's re-election.

You call that a foreign policy debate? I call it the Big Bore in Boca Raton. I've seen and heard better debates over America's role in the world at my local Irish bar.

Republicans Campaign on Peace and Govern by War

Miles Mogulescu

Mitt Romney's sudden transformation from a warmonger to a peacenick in the waning days of the Presidential campaign should come as no surprise. It's straight out of the Republican playbook. From Richard Nixon to George W. Bush, Republicans have campaigned for peace and then taken America to war.

Obama's Debate Win Will Push the Media Narrative in His Direction

Dan Kennedy | Posted 12.23.2012 | Media
Dan Kennedy

By dominating Romney on Monday night, Obama all but guaranteed a favorable media narrative for the final 15 days. But it won't be as bad for Romney as it was for Obama after the first debate. And that's because conservative pundits don't eat their own the way liberals do.
