I'm tired of hearing about a battle for the Republican Party between mainstream business interests and the Tea Party. The battle is over and the Tea Party has won, at least in Congress.
Our state of affairs goes against a pinnacle of American justice, equality before law, facilitating everything from war crimes, to torture, to domestic spying, to a predatory, ravenous Wall Street that feeds on the middle class with impunity.
Come election time, neither Boehner, nor his party, can hide behind the Deporter-in-Chief's enforcement record.
Hillary Rodham Clinton is the overwhelming front-runner to be her party's standard-bearer in the 2016 presidential election, and the Republicans know it. Even though she has not announced her intentions, Republicans are taking political shots at her. But their personal attacks are shrill and feeble, and reveal a party without a vision for the country.
South Carolina GOP Senator Tim Scott is the latest to spin the laughable fantasy that blacks are ripe for the GOP pickings.
Priebus can cut off contact with liberal media outlets to protest claims that he feels are unjust; however, if he is truly dedicated to reestablishing the Republican Party, he could start by looking in the mirror first because as these examples show there is nothing the liberal media can say that will make Republicans look worse than their own actions do.
Only the far fringes of the Democratic Party are even as far left as most of Europe's political right. The sad results are that we have the horrors of Rwanda, Bosnia, and Somalia having happened or festered considerably while American presidencies have been busy with other matters.
What a sad spectacle the country is witnessing out of Washington today. A small portion of Republicans is holding their party hostage to a very narrow...
Of course, the losers for the lack of forward-looking ideas are the American people. They put their confidence in government to solve problems at reasonable costs and help improve the quality of their lives. But neither is occurring.
As I've written often, today's Republican Party has a tactic that they use regularly -- find your own weakness and level the same charge against Democrats.
In a rather quiet year, some of the more significant races in California are coming into greater focus.
Republicans believe, for example, that business should be free from the kind of government regulation that would prevent chemical companies from spewing poison into West Virginia drinking water. When it comes to freedom for workers, though, the GOP is all about squelching that.
Not thinking anything of it he entered his financial information and hit submit. What he didn't notice was the small print at the bottom of the screen.
Californians are welcoming rain, but that hasn't stopped the astonishingly bold-faced water grab by San Joaquin Valley Republicans which would massively redistribute the state's water in the favor of Republican farming districts.
It is insulting to Hispanic voters to peddle this polluted line to them and claim that the Speaker's retreat is because of the president. They know it is not true. The Speaker's retreat is because of the Speaker, demanded by the right, and Hispanics know this. And everyone else knows this.
The leap between being surprised on Election Night in 2012 and believing climate change is a hoax is not that big. In both cases, eschewing scientific approaches leads to fundamental misunderstandings of reality.
