Michael Hertz: Although the social media is flooded with Bernie people, the way social media is set up it’s difficult for all those people even to know where one another is.
Michael T. Hertz: If MoveOn supports Sanders, that will be a big step. It will, in effect, take away from Hillary Clinton’s contention that she is a progressive and will give a big boost to Sanders’ campaign.
Michael Hertz: In the past few days, I’ve run into two Republicans who said that they want Bernie Sanders for President. Republicans for a avowed democratic socialist. How did that happen?
Michael Hertz: Jeb has told us what he is: a bald-faced liar, ready to say anything that will help him get elected. And his words will come back to haunt him.
Michael T. Hertz: Bernie Sanders could use his “beat the billionaires” campaign with the two most likely Republican nominees, while Hillary could not because of her own money ties. But Rubio and Bernie share one quality: neither have a lot of personal wealth.
Michael Hertz: Some speculate now that the email scandal may be the event that decides her not to run for president. But if she does decide, the risk is that these sorts of scandals will continue to emerge, eventually causing voters to turn away from her.
Michael T. Hertz: The United States has had a long history of Middle East involvement, but even in the past 14 years it has made pretty much of a mess of things.
Michael Hertz: Most American doctors (the ENT doctor was an exception) are too busy except to give “shoot from the hip” diagnoses and they really won’t look at anything produced for the patient by other doctors. They don’t have time.
Michael T. Hertz: It doesn’t help matters when the government bans a Muslim comedian like Dieudonne from making anti-Semitic jokes but does nothing about Charlie Hebdo’s anti-Muslim satire.
Michael T. Hertz: Watch out for the TPP, all you who want to protect American sovereign rights. Because once it is enacted, our entire legal system is up for grabs. And for those of you who are Democrats, you can thank your beloved President for the result.
Michael T. Hertz: The investigation should include a panel of three: one from the U.S., one from North Korea, and one from the U.N. And there should be a stake in the outcome: whoever is responsible should compensate Sony for the loss of the film and perhaps other costs.
Michael T. Hertz: There is a deep divide in our country between those who think that our gun laws must be strengthened in order to prevent tragedies like 3-year-olds killing themselves.
Michael T. Hertz: For those who want Ted Cruz: beware. He may not be eligible, and if he were elected the result would certainly create chaos for many months.
