Social media will be to this election what television was to the 1960 victory of John Kennedy, and what radio was to the multiple victories in the '30s and '40s of Franklin Roosevelt.
President Obama has underscored that the prevention of slavery is the responsibility of government and the private sector and consumers. As a result, he reframed the issue into one not of us and them but us - period. We, the collective we, are the solution to human trafficking.
The recent surge by President Obama in the polls, particularly in the battleground states, is certainly good news, but it also runs the risk that his supporters will become overconfident.
Is it any wonder that Republicans have become the Party of 'no'? If they had said yes, our unemployment might be in the range of 5.5 to 6.5 percent by now and the president would be kicking Mitt Romney's rear end even more thoroughly than he is already.
It's time for the one year report card. Fortunately, the White House has released a wealth of statistics touting the success of We the People.
Mitt Romney's only hope appears to be a decisive victory over the president in their upcoming debates. However, this may be a long shot for a man who once responded, "I'm not familiar precisely with what I said, but I'll stand by what I said, whatever it was."
He personally answered over 1000 questions, no minions intervened, ranging from politics, to philosophy, to Washington's secret beer recipe. Obama received a mountain of praise for his efforts. But will all this social media activity keep Obama in the White House?
Romney's experience in the private sector might help him run our country and turn around our economy, but not without empathy for the 99%. His positions speak loudly in this regard.
This is a call to action for all military men and women, the veterans that came before them, and the families that support them both.
When it comes to President Obama, Americans have only two states of being: on or off. He is either the outsider who can bring about real change or he is a Washington insider just like the rest. The reality is that he is both, and most people find it hard to grapple with that paradox.
On paper, this race shouldn't be as close as it is. Mitt Romney is not what most political consultants would call a great candidate.
It doesn't matter who will live in the White House next year, the country will continue to sink into the mire as long as the two political parties are in street-fighting mode, and economists fly at each others' throats because they do not agree on a solution to the debt issue.
I recently had a tussle on a comment thread of a Huffington Post article. First Lady Michelle Obama, as part of her "Let's Move" campaign, the article explained, had hosted a State Dinner for Kids at the White House.
I recently read, Eisenhower, The White House Years, by Jim Newton. In the past, I've read a lot of books about Eisenhower's life, especially his commanding role in the second world war. But, this is the first book I've read on his presidency.
I am happy to work with lawyers who understand that when government fails to do its job, whether it's for political reasons or just incompetence, you have to use all the legal tools at your disposal.
Here's a prediction about Christie's primetime keynote address tonight at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. He will not peep a word about one of the things that makes him such a unique member of the GOP: his strong support for solar energy.
