Questions for Republicans on Health Care Reform

David Coates | Posted 06.09.2012 | Politics

Healthcare is too important an issue to be discussed in clichés and sound-bites. In truth, it's actually too important an issue to be resolved by nine unelected judges attempting to divine how long-dead eighteen century men would respond to twenty-first century problems.

The American people are waiting for the primaries to end and for the GOP convention to finally select the Republican presidential Candidate. After such a grueling, stretched out, abrasive campaign, they would like to believe that "dos iz alts" -- "that's all there is."

Republicans With Power: Virginia Personhood Laws a Preview of GOP Presidency?

If personhood laws are put into effect, government would literally have the authority to control the reproductive life of every citizen. Were not Republicans supposed to be in favor of individual liberty? Why then would they want to remove our right to use birth control?

Unlike a 13-episode arc that can be mercifully cancelled when the audience clicks away, we are obligated to suffer through the soap opera plot twists and nefarious characterizations of the characters all the way up to that seemingly ever-distant date in November.

Mitt Romney has money and the moderate politics to give the president a tough fight in the fall. But he doesn't give his own party those sweaty palms of excitement. He could have a very miserable 2012.

Memo From a Political Insider

James Moore | Posted 02.14.2012 | Politics
James Moore

Romney's problem is still that he's Romney. Don't expect better than third out of him in Iowa. The reasons are many and manifest and have been talked about and written about until they are likely carved into tablets of jade somewhere. As for Newt, the polls in Iowa and elsewhere have been friendly to him but the voters in Iowa will be less magnanimous. They aren't likely to be as forgiving as the analysts think. Ron Paul is the guy who could end up as the Mike Huckabee of 2008. He might even do considerably better throughout the spring. Where does this leave us? We could go all the way through Super Tuesday in the first week of March and still not know who will be the nominee of the Republican Party.
