The “Heart” of the 2012 Presidential Campaign

The “Heart” of the 2012 Presidential Campaign

        What a privilege we have in this country to vote for the person who is arguably the most powerful head of state in the free world. Those of us who enjoy personal involvement in politics find these campaigns driven by high spirits, high expectations and even higher emotions. However, there has been a new element introduced to the election this year – that of hatred. This isn’t just “simple” hatred but rather the kind that is so intimidating that even those of ...

GOP plays the Christianity card

GOP plays the Christianity card

                    The Myth of the Christian Right By Mary Shaw (about the author)   GOP politicians and their followers love to play the Christianity card. They wave their bibles and wag their fingers at anyone whose behavior doesn't pass their sanctimonious moral judgment. They call themselves Christians, but in Catholic school I was taught that Christians adore and follow Jesus Christ. These holier-than-thou Republicans don't reflect ... Full Story

Republicans: Party of Rape

Republicans: Party of Rape

  There has been a great deal of comment among Republicans on the subject of rape. See the accompanying articles. In all these comments, the onus seems to be put upon the woman. It is almost as if these Republican men blame the women for getting raped. Never have we heard them talk about the rapist. The obvious conclusion is that Republicans condon rape for the rapist (man) but not the victim (woman). On the other side of the Republican coin, is the attitude that sex is a sin and should ...

Washington Needs to Lead. Now

Washington Needs to Lead. Now

              By Lee H. Hamilton       A few weeks ago, I had a conversation with a group of prominent business leaders that I’m still mulling over. We were talking about the intersection between business and government, and they were pretty unhappy. The chief target of their displeasure wasn’t any of the usual suspects, though. Instead of lambasting taxes or regulations, they were most worried about uncertainty in Washington. Their ... Full Story

Gardner: More Republican lies

Gardner: More Republican lies

In a press release to the editor (following) Cory Gardner uses an old technique to twist the truth, nay, even lie. He introduces as truth something which is not true or is only his opinion. Introducing such a statement is called using a “strawman.” After making the statement, in this case that the Obama administration discriminates against oil and gas, he then uses the statement to attack the administration. This seems to be a tactic of the current crop of Republicans. Since they do not ... Full Story

Leadership in the White House

Leadership in the White House

In my own career in the military and a degree in personnel management, I have been able to observe people in positions of authority. I have been able to ascertain that there is a big difference between managers and leaders. I have observed many competent managers but real leaders are few and far between. Leaders engender trust and loyalty because in addition to managing, they take care of their people. A reading of the D-Day invasion and landing at Omaha beach will illustrate this point. ...

Four Pinocchios for Mitt

Four Pinocchios for Mitt

  Mitt Romney’s ‘new math’ for jobs plan doesn’t add up  By Glenn Kessler Let me tell you how I will create 12 million jobs when President Obama couldn't. First, my energy independence policy means more than 3 million new jobs, many of them in manufacturing. My tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates 7 million more. And expanding trade, cracking down on China and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs.” — ... Full Story

Would you vote for a radical Jew

Would you vote for a radical Jew

He hung around with lepers, hookers and crooks. He was totally anti-death penalty; anti-public prayer; never once spoke about anti-gay or abortion.

Of Republicans and Race Cards

      Tomgram: Jeremiah Goulka, Playing the ID Card       Posted by Jeremiah Goulka at 6:30pm, October 14, 2012. It’s an election year for the record books -- or maybe Ripley’s Believe It or Not.  The Obama campaign has now raised close to $1 billion; “dark money” is pouring into the Republican camp and onto the airwaves; and it’s clear that earlier predictions of the first $2 billion presidential campaign are likely to fall short of the real figure.  Or if you ...
