Miles Blue: Republican Representative Paul Ryan’s response to the President’s State of the Union speech was remarkably disingenuous – he charged the President with wanting to maintain the “status quo.” Who is kidding whom? Paul Ryan’s own “Road Map for America’s Future” does nothing more than give the country to the major corporations, to the rich, and to Wall Street.
Joseph Palermo: So that’s what our political discourse has sunk to? Discredited figures like Brownie are on TV jockeying for partisan gain, milking a national tragedy that is probably going to change forever the ecosystem of the Gulf Coast? Brownie uses a catastrophe that threatens many of the nation’s most important waterways and will probably be a grave setback to any national economic recovery to score pitiful political points against the Democrats? Who are these people?
