It's still only August, but already the predictions that this would be an exceedingly banal presidential election campaign look like they've already come true. This week's campaign news might be summed up as an elementary school playground shouting match: "You're a bigot!" "No, you're a bigot!" Sigh.
If the media needs to acknowledge Trump's "changed" demeanor, it must also give Hillary equal time to express her convictions. Only then will there be an opportunity for the clearest comparison.
Trump begins the week with the WSJ urging the RNC to cut him loose if he can't turn around his floundering campaign by Labor Day...and ends it with the Bannon-Manafort shuffle. Cooke & Lamarche laugh off the chance he can stop scratching his attention-getting-disorder itch. GOP prospects Nov. 9?
In Trump's warped world, it might be enough to vaguely say that you have regrets. But Trump owes the people he has attacked and bullied so much more than that.
Like a man embracing his bride while coyly winking over his shoulder at one of his wedding party guests, Donald Trump used the GOP convention to stir passion among the party base while lightly romancing LGBT people.
A sure sign that a campaign is failing is when the candidate blames the press for his problems. The latest example is Republican presidential nomine...
Right now it looks like things will not go well for the Trump campaign. The list of Republicans repudiating their candidate is literally unprecedented, and still growing.
Cruz has been quiet, these days, watching the show. Only recently, the world was calling his speech at the Republican National Convention political suicide. Might they soon be calling it his golden ticket to the White House?
Under our respective "purple tents," we can all recognize that America is more united than divided, that thoughtful people can have thoughtful dialogue, and that disputes can get resolved and urgent issues solved.
Trump can't afford to snub Cruz and his supporters this campaign season, while trying to appeal to some populist socialism.
Clinton has gotten a bigger convention bounce than Trump and I think that is because the DNC was a more positive and uplifting experience than the RNC. Maybe Americans prefer optimism to pessimism. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was a tale of two conventions.
At just 20-years-old, Blake Pyron is Sanger, Texas' youngest business owner. He also happens to have Down Syndrome.
Either his supporters are incapable of discerning or caring about facts or because they show no concern about the importance of truth and decency in their next president I reluctantly borrow Trump's favored description to decry those with whom he is in disagreement and state forthwith these people are just plain stupid. It may well be the only word they can comprehend and take to heart.
Earlier today, President Obama said this: "I think what's been interesting is the repeated denunciations of his statements by leading Republicans," h...
As the New York Times so eloquently described this weekend, GOP nominee Donald Trump has few options and quite a narrow path to 270 electoral college votes this coming November.
In November, I will be voting my conscience, and it will be based on a pro-life ethic.
