We need a president who is respected by Republicans, Democrats, Independents and everyone in between. Someone who might have a D or an R after their name, but doesn't let that compromise their ability to do what's best for the American people.
Republican presidential campaigns are supposed to be simple. Republicans nominate the next guy in line. More precisely, Republicans nominate the guy who ran second the last time around. (And so far, it's always been a guy.)
Republican candidates have justifiably complained about sensational "gotcha" debate questions from the media designed to generate conflict in order to spike ratings, and thus cash. Instead, time would be better spent trying to extract policy differences from among the candidates.
Republicans -- the party most ideally poised to capitalize on this cultural environment -- have failed to win over Silicon Valley's techies. This is something that needs to change if the party ever hopes to catch up with Democrats in the increasingly important technology space.

My analysis supports the view of the Republican Party as being a less tolerant party. Members of the Republican Party express more negative feelings and more animosity toward America's minority groups.
Scrutiny? Who needs it?
Politicians lie! I know it, you know it, we all know it! Call Bullshit is the first interactive show where you can call politicians out on all their bullshit in a funny and engaging way.
Republicans have succeeded in crippling much of government with their no tax raise mantra. This budget compromise will help current programs. But it doesn't cure the revenue problem.
As the recent presidential debate showed, the trusty old media-bashing tactic of Republican candidates was alive and well, and this season it is pushing into over-drive with a zest that would make Spiro Agnew cheer.
Looks like things are going pretty well for you. On behalf of my Kennedy-Democrat Washington tribe, I would like to tell you that we were quite impressed by your performance in the Republican debate Wednesday night.
