          Government documents prove the candidate's mythology is just that By Tim Dickinson August 29, 2012 7:00 AM ET Mitt Romney likes to say he won't "apologize" for his success in business.

Mitt Romney’s Real Agenda

          If you want to understand Romney's game plan, just look at what Republicans have been doing in Congress By Tim Dickinson September 28, 2012 10:30 AM ET It was tempting to dismiss Mitt Romney's hard-right turn during the GOP primaries as calculated pandering.

Mitt’s Most Shameless Lie

Mitt’s Most Shameless Lie

      Mitt’s Most Shameless Lie By Gene Lyons People who lie a lot also tend to whine a lot, particularly when their prevarications are exposed. As a presidential candidate, Mitt Romney gives the impression of never having been in a fair fight. He’s remarkably thin-skinned for somebody in public life. Everybody expects politicians to embellish the truth, but Romney’s epic misrepresentations continue to astonish. Yet he appears flabbergasted that ... Full Story

        A Recipe for American Decline That No One Will Be Debating   Posted by Mattea Kramer   Five big things will decide what this country looks like next year and in the 20 years to follow, but here’s a guarantee for you: you’re not going to hear about them in the upcoming presidential debates. 1.

Will Republicans steal the election?

  There is genuine concern that the republicans will try to steal the coming election. There is plenty of evidence that they have the mindset to do so. In addition the wholesale lies by the Republicans and their SuperPacs, (go to Politifact.com to see) there are many avenues available that may be effective.

When I traveled to Washington DC earlier this month to talk to members of ... Full Story

Paul Ryan is not a great intellectual

Paul Ryan is not a great intellectual

        Recently we were introduced to a 2005 recording of Paul Ryan addressing the Atlas Society, apparently a fan club for Ayn Rand. In it he outlines his belief that Social Security should be privatized and turned over to Wall Street. The amazing part of his comments was that he claimed that whenever he had a legislative issue that, he would return to Rand’s 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged   and re-read all 64 pages of John Galt’s radio address. Do you ... Full Story

Don’t forget your ‘neighborhood shopping

Don’t forget your ‘neighborhood shopping

With all the national campaign ads flooding our airwaves and media streams, don’t forget there are important local races going on too.  In fact, these local, often unheralded, campaigns are where the daily impact on our own personal lives is most felt in the future – where the rubber hits the road.
