CEO Math

CEO Math is what results after drinking an ideological Red Bull. Suitably buzzed, you then begin to do arithmetic to maximize short-term profits -- regardless of whether your math is legal, ethical, good for business in the long-term

Today, we are facing our own public health emergency that is planetary in scope. The only option now is to sideline the Senator Inhofes and the George Wills of this world and mobilize the not-insane people and their governments to bring us back from the brink.

With growing horror, the right-wing is watching the detested president take what appears to be a solid lead in virtually all major polls (including those of FOX). Its increasingly agitated response to that development? Insist that the polls are hopelessly biased.

HuffPost Radio | Posted 09.23.2012 | Politics

2011-11-29-20111107bothsidesnow.jpg To Ron Reagan, the 47% tape reveals Romney's sneering elitism -- but Torie Clarke thinks it's a feeding frenzy over a stumble no worse than Obama's comments on "cling to guns/religion" and "redistribution."

George Will Says the Republicans Should Be Winning, But Here Is Why They Are Not

Mitchell Bard | Posted 11.10.2012 | Politics
Mitchell Bard

One of the most lauded speeches at the Democratic convention was given by Bill Clinton, and the bulk of it found the former president debunking the assertions made by Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and others at the Republican convention. It's no wonder then that the undecided voters in key swing states who will determine the winner in November are not ready to trust Romney and Ryan enough to buy into a policy that doesn't help them initially, but only will based on the promises of those who would benefit immediately. They don't trust Romney and Ryan to deliver. Throw in the GOP's shift to the extreme right on social issues, which is scaring away some women voters, and the president's ability to hold a lead in the polls despite the economic conditions starts to make clear sense.
