Romney praises socialists

Romney praises socialists

    Question Time: What Did Mitt Romney Learn During His Travels Abroad? By Joe Conason in the National Memo Now that Mitt Romney has returned home from his entertaining sojourn overseas, perhaps someone will ask him a few pertinent (and impertinent) questions about the countries he visited. While visiting England, Israel, and Poland, the Republican candidate delivered remarks on their economic and health systems that could – if subjected to factual analysis – serve to educate ...

Life’s Outtakes: Sisterly Love

Life’s Outtakes: Sisterly Love

by Daris Howard               Trissa stomped into our bedroom. “Make her leave Toby alone!”             Toby was Trissa’s special Teddy bear. He was a perfect size and very soft. But most importantly, he only had one eye. Trissa had endured many eye surgeries when she was only four years old, and was very attached to her one-eyed bear.             I pulled Trissa up close to me. “Who would be bothering Toby?” I asked. “Everybody knows he is your ...

Billions for defense but not one red cent for peace

Fiscal cliff and the peace parachute By Tom H. Hastings As we all know, the inability of Congress to act decisively and with consensus about much of anything--if the Democrats issued a statement noting that the sun rises in the east there would be an instant outraged Republican rebuttal blaming Obama and explaining the Republicans' refusal to acknowledge the power of the sun, since that is an attack on JC (Job Creators, and probably the other JC too)--that inability has now been harnessed to ...

More Romney lies

        Mitt Romney’s claim of credit for the auto industry turnaround Posted by Glenn Kessler What should we do when a politician keeps repeating a Pinocchio-laden claim — or even makes its worse? We have examined previously the former Massachusetts governor’s claim that he set the course for the managed bankruptcy of the auto industry—and also have examined critically some of President Obama’s claims on the bailout. But clearly it’s time for a refresher ... Full Story

ALEC and the United States of Oligarchy

ALEC and the United States of Oligarchy

          Today, ALEC Brings Lawmakers And Big Oil Together To Undermine Clean Energy By Rebecca Leber on May 11, 2012 Today, behind closed doors in Charlotte, North Carolina, legislators from 15 states will meet with the oil and gas industry to discuss so-called “model legislation” as part of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

Romney, computers and pornography

Romney, computers and pornography

        Opinion by David Pakman     During Mitt Romney’s campaign for the 2008 Republican Presidential nomination, he made an interesting comment about pornography. The comment came in Ottumwa, Iowa at the Hotel Ottumwa, where Romney said “I want to make sure every new computer sold in this country after I’m President has installed on it a filter to block all pornography.” This comment is fascinating for a number of reasons, and requires a multi-level ...

                    Update: Confirmed, Congress is Owned By The NRA by Paul Canning Last week, I reported on how a poll had found that the vast majority of Americans supported some restrictions on gun ownership. I also reported on how the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence would be lobbying Congress — here’s what they asked Congress members to support: I believe that these people should not be able to buy, own or carry a gun anywhere in ...

Romney, a man of falsehoods

Romney, a man of falsehoods

      OPINIONS   Mitt Romney, a man of falsehoods  By Richard Cohen, Published: April 16 Among the attributes I most envy in a public man (or woman) is the ability to lie. If that ability is coupled with no sense of humor, you have the sort of man who can be a successful football coach, a CEO or, when you come right down to it, a presidential candidate. Such a man is Mitt Romney. Time and time again, Romney has been called a liar during this campaign. (The various ... Full Story
