Clifford “Felonius Ax” Tasner: President Romney will usher in an America where only our tiny minority gets to thrive while the rest of you succumb to debt peonage. And being Billionaires will feel extra special once again!

Mitt on Obama: Mortal Menace, or Fumbling Failure?

John Peeler: Obama needs to convince the people who voted for him once that he has a good plan. So far, he seems mostly to be telling us how untrustworthy Mitt Romney is. Show us, Barack, that we should still believe in you.

mitt's cold eyes

Trickle Down Economics a Pyramid Scheme

Tina Dupuy: We’re fatter, sicker, further in debt and using the most illegal drugs in the world—all signs Americans have become overspent from bad economic policies.

Robert Brent Toplin: Paul Ryan’s quick rise to his party’s second position in the presidential race symbolizes the growing prominence of this previously obscure philosophy and political movement.

Of Champagne Corks and Gnashing Teeth

ruan budget

Berry Craig: Ryan is a Social Darwinist of the if-you’re-poor-it’s-your-own-fault persuasion and a disciple of the greed-is-good gospel of Ayn Rand. He hates labor unions, to boot.

The Obama Campaign’s Strategic Genius

Randy Shaw: Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan was less about pleasing the Party’s base than about trying to shift the conversation away from the issues that Obama’s campaign team have made this election about.

Rev. Irene Monroe: Both Obama and Biden have now come out in support of marriage equality; in the last presidential election it would have been political suicide to support it. This November, it may be a risk not to.

The Ryan Factor

Tom Degan: Strategically, Ryan was a pretty good choice. He’ll bring out the brain-dead base, and uninformed moderates will be wooed by his amiable qualities.

Ryan, Rand, Romney

Charles Hayes: The hate your government virus has become the bubonic plague of American politics. Thanks largely to Congressman Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney’s chosen running mate, the ghost of Ayn Rand is spooking the electorate.

Tom Degan: Given his well-earned reputation for timidity, if Harry Reid’s gone out on a limb to make a charge as serious as this, it must be true.

Mitt, I Owe You an Apology

Tina Dupuy: [dc]P[/dc]resumptive nominee Mitt Romney is seemingly fixated on apologies. He’s obsessed with apologies like Bristol Palin is obsessed with teen abstinence
