The Paul Ryan Congress

Rep. Mike Honda | Posted 11.10.2012 | Politics
Rep. Mike Honda

Paul Ryan's proposed budget offers no progress, protection or prosperity for Americans. It will not create the jobs Americans so desperately need. Indeed, the Ryan Budget would do irrefutable damage to our country's greatest legacies. There are better ways forward.

Dishing The Mitt Romney VP Dirt

Howard Fineman | Posted 08.09.2012 | Politics
Howard Fineman

Veep vetting is going public -- even viral -- which means a decision Mitt Romney thought he was making in private could be influenced, or undermined, by a parallel search going on beyond his headquarters in Boston. Until now the process of researching the background of potential vice-presidential running mates was largely left to campaign lawyers conducting secret interviews and poring over stacks of documents and disclosure forms in windowless offices. But as the Romney campaign has developed its short list, a crowd-sourcing mini-industry has sprung up on the web to dig into that list and feed the results back to the public and/or the Obama campaign. If you're Mitt, you'll want to make sure you know what the crowd knows.
