Opinion: Pelosi Stays On As Leader, Continuing To Defy The GOP War On Women

She will remain the one woman in a leadership position in the room when important issues effecting women are negotiated over the next year and a strong reminder that Democrats stand with women and promote them to positions of power.

Opinion: Our Veterans Should Not Be At Risk In Fiscal Cliff Negotiations

When the deal is being made to change the tax rates and cut the deficit we must remember to keep our commitment to our veterans.

Opinion: Karl Rove Is The Most Overrated Person In Politics Today

Rove has managed to spin himself a personal fortune in national politics. His reputation, however, does not match his accomplishments.

Opinion: Four More Years Of Gridlock

Even the most liberal of Democrats must agree that Obama’s inability to get foes to work with him is severely impeding any progress this country.

Opinion: Obama And Christie Do The Right Thing Working Together As The Right Continues Attacks

Governor Christie went out of his way to praise the work that the President and his administration are doing, something that he got a lot of credit for…outside of the right-wing blogosphere.

Opinion: Sandy Reminds Us Of The Need For FEMA And That Romney Would Shut It Down

Romney was asked at a presidential debate whether FEMA should be shut down in light of the deficit. Romney replied that FEMA should “absolutely” be shut down. He was asked specifically if that included disaster relief. He replied that it was “immoral” to provide such relief in the face of “larger debts”, emphasizing that “it makes no sense at all” to have such programs.

Opinion: Auto Manufacturing Is Back In America. Obama Was Right, Romney Was Wrong.

Auto manufacturing is back in America – especially in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania because President Obama made the politically risky decision to bailout the auto industry after bailing out the banks. It was a decision that worked. Obama was right, Romney was wrong. So Romney is now in full lying mode. He is trying to retroactively re-write the wrongs in his writings.

Opinion: Another Hurricane Reminds Us Of The Need For An Effective Administration

The 2012 presidential campaign between President Obama and Mitt Romney will be book-ended by hurricanes.

Opinion: Team Obama Is Winning The Opening Of The Final Sprint To Election Day

We are currently seeing two very different approaches to the post-debate push from the two Presidential campaigns – Obama has a much stronger opening to the two week push.

Opinion: 7.8% Unemployment Rate Is Questionable

Obviously, one does not need a math degree of any sort to realize that something is amiss with these figures and thereby needs further explanation. It appears as though their number of those who found work, the number of new jobs created, or both are inaccurate.

Opinion: Romney and Ryan Are Real Life Versions Of GOP Caricatures Of Kerry and Gore

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.

Opinion: As Hurricane Isaac Threatens The GOP Continues To Party

As Hurricane Isaac threatens the Gulf again, we will see if Katrina and Isaac serve as bookends of GOP hostility to federal disaster relief. An odd stance for a party that claims to “choose life” while watching people die in natural disasters rather than provide an adequate response.

Opinion: National Review Resorts To Junk Science To Boost Romney

It isn’t just Republican Members of Congress that have junk theories they attach to pseudo-science. Kevin D. Williamson, a conservative writer for the National Review, thinks based on their offspring, genetics and “evolutionary biology” Barack Obama should have ovaries and that Mitt Romney should owns him in this election, “Like a Boss”.

Opinion: Romney Tries To Reboot Losing Campaign With Ryan Pick

After months of failing to find a way to gain ground in the presidential campaign, Mitt Romney has hit the reset button by picking Paul Ryan as his running mate, but once the dust has settled and the Conventions are over, it is hard to see how Romney will have changed the direction of the 2012 presidential campaign.

Opinion: Karl Rove’s Super PAC For Hire

Karl Rove has come up with a business, his Super PAC, that offers wealthy businesses with legal problems potential for relief.
