Outside the student union building on the Pitt campus Thursday, the voter registration table was open for business as students energized by last night’s debate were signing up.
The whole controversy over voter ID is full of politics. Republicans, who said they wanted to safeguard the election process, admitted it might give Mitt Romney the edge in Pennsylvania. And Democrats said the bill was designed to keep Democrats from voting in big cities.
For all the billions spent by the Obama and Romney campaigns, Republican and Democratic parties, and countless outside groups, we may wake up November 7th to a Washington that is virtually unchanged.
If the GOP wants a candidate to “man up”, they should tell Mitt Romney to grow up and stop hiding his returns and stop disparaging working Americans for meeting their tax obligations while he dodges his.
The idea that 47 percent of Americans don’t have “personal responsibility” or “care for their lives” is shockingly arrogant, even by Mitt Romney’s standards.
Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court heard arguments Thursday morning over the state’s new voter ID law. At issue is whether the new law, requiring each voter to show valid photo identification, poses an unnecessary burden on the right to vote.
Tomorrow, the State Supreme Court will take on a legal challenge to Pennsylvania’s new Voter Identification Law.
The media keeps suggesting that the racism regarding candidates has to do with whites not wanting to vote for a black man, even though Barack Obama won a presidential election with a great amount of white support in 2008. What the media isn’t talking about is the NBC-Wall Street survey results which say that there are basically no black supporters for the Caucasian candidate, Mitt Romney, in 2012.
The early returns are in and, according to the Neilson rating company, the Democrats beat the Republicans… and the NFL.
Have you ever wondered what makes a politician’s ego so big? Or how they see themselves as a “divine” power if the people would believe in them?
In an odd turn of events, the Republicans in Tampa nominated real life versions of their cartoon versions of Kerry and Gore. Republicans thought John Kerry should be criticized for changing positions. But Kerry is not in the same league as Romney who ran as a pro-choice candidate and promised to do more for gay rights than Ted Kennedy.
Last night, Clint Eastwood produced the most bizarre and uncomfortable moments in modern convention history. If Mitt Romney cannot get his campaign right. If he cannot even get the things that he can control right, how can he make the case that he can run the country?
The whole concept of warring on women is totally sexist. The truth is that women are speaking for themselves, doing a damn good job of expressing their views quite clearly and eloquently, and they don’t need the media speaking for them – especially the male-intense media of 2012.
Republicans are kept accountable for their own misspeaks and actions. Unlike the Democrats’ life jacket being tossed out to a sinking politician by the Party, when a Republican politician does the inexcusable, the Republican Party throws him an anchor – and that’s how it should be.
Yesterday the Obama administration put in place provisions of the DREAM Act that brought many young people out of the shadows to participate in the American Dream. On the same day a judge in Pennsylvania let stand what may be the most egregious attempt at voter suppression in a generation.
