Enter Scott Walker's politics of fear. For the party that rhetorically champions self-reliance, the emphasis on creating fear and despair in the electorate is ironic, but effective. Why blame yourself for economic insecurity when you can blame a faceless immigrant plotting to take away your job?
The obvious choice for this week's Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week is none other than America's new Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. Lynch was finally confirmed by the Senate in a 56-43 vote.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch at long last won the first round of battle with the GOP with her confirmation. But it's only the first round. There are three reasons for their continuing war on her.
The current trade regime is not just a matter of the U.S. exporting manufacturing jobs to China and importing cheaper consumer goods. We are also dramatically increasing the volume of pollution associated with our consumption, so much that a significant part of U.S. pollution is now generated in China in the production of goods for U.S. consumers.
It's remarkable to think that, 20 years after we buried 168 Americans in a horrific of terrorism, we are hearing the same exact perverse philosophy being promoted by Republican candidates running for the office of President of the United States.
I've rounded up the weirdest Supreme Court briefs that argue in favor of preventing gays and lesbians from marrying. Some are full of mistakes, others have baffling arguments. And at least one is incredibly sexist, and signed by a member of Congress.
What pragmatic liberals like me are calling for is not surrender on the part of progressives, but political maturity. Hillary is far better than any GOP candidate. If she is the Democratic nominee, those who don't want to see a century of reforms decimated should give her their vote.
Scott Walker's 2016 strategy is simple: He will seek to defeat Hillary Clinton by mobilizing the resentment of working-class white voters, male and female.
Tell Facebook ranters to STFU because they have zero effect on your decision-making process. If they argue, set them free. Unfriend them, block them, cut them loose forever. You can do it.
Unlike the 2012 presidential campaign, in which much of the "war on women" rhetoric employed by Democrats hinged on reproductive health politics and the birth control mandate, next year's presidential race will address a broader array of economic concerns for women, at least if Hillary Clinton has a say.
The Republicans Party is aware of America's changing demographics, but insist on being a party that pushes the growing Hispanic population into the Democrat's column -- insane.

Almost the first thing the Republican leaders of the Senate and House promised when they took control of both houses of Congress was that they would make government work more efficiently. But they haven't, and they won't.
It's a work in progress and I invite you to join in refining it or even tearing it apart and replacing it with something better. But please, don't YOU stay part of the problem without becoming part of the solution.
Boehner revealed that he had consulted a number of Constitutional scholars and is convinced that he is on solid legal ground in issuing his "Stop Hillary" veto.
