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 ... Full Story

Really, you’re still undecided?

Really, you’re still undecided?

  Here are some things to think about, if you’re still thinking about whom to elect president. One of Mr. Romney’s criticisms about the President is the loss of certain “green” businesses that the administration backed. Of those receiving funds, about 8 percent went into bankruptcy. “The Wall Street Journal, aiming for a comprehensive assessment, examined 77 businesses Bain invested in while Mr. Romney led the firm from its 1984 start until early 1999, to see how they fared ...

Fascist America: Are We There Yet?

Fascist America: Are We There Yet?

The barrage of anti-Obama ads fueled by corporate money should leave no doubt that Corporate America is trying to take over the democracy. They are using classic Nazi Fascist tactics as outlined in Mein Kampf. The classic disinformation campaign consisting of lies, the bigger the better, is a classic tactic espoused by Adolph Hitler. (Quote, "Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.") It is apparent that the Republican Party and ... Full Story

Republican Hang-up on Sex

Republican Hang-up on Sex

              The Republican Hang-Up On Sex And Abortion By Michael Roberts (about the author) I'm not going to repeat the recent stupid and backward pronouncements by zany Republicans on the subject of sex, rape and abortion. Nor am I going to dignify the asinine comments by a set of   white guys in the Republican Party who see rape as "no big deal" and that if it is inevitable then the woman should "lie down and enjoy it." And ... Full Story

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 ...

The Federal Bailout That Saved Mitt Romney

The Federal Bailout That Saved Mitt Romney

          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. But what he never says is "thank you" – to the American people – for the federal bailout of Bain & Company that made so much of his outsize wealth possible. According to the candidate's mythology, Romney took leave of his duties at the private ... Full Story

Mitt Romney’s Real Agenda

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. In the general election – as one of his top advisers famously suggested – Romney would simply shake the old Etch A Sketch and recast himself as the centrist who governed ... Full Story

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

Romney: another big lie

Romney: another big lie

    4 Pinocchios for a truncated, 14-year-old Obama clip      Just as we have not been very impressed about many of the Obama campaign’s claims about Mitt Romney’s business career many years ago, we were not initially that impressed with the Romney campaign’s effort to dredge up a 14-year-old quote to demonstrate that President Obama wants to “redistribute wealth.”  The clip was so old — he was just a state senator — and the ...
