Mark Naison: So the event was cancelled. Not because the Mayor came to his senses. But because outer borough New York had risen in revolt.
John MacMurrary: We still have gangsters like Sheldon Adelson, Bob Perry, and the Koch brothers working to steal our country. What we need is another Smedley Butler to stop them.
Clifford “Felonious Ax? Tasner: Voters are not becoming better informed and candidates get away with saying almost anything that pops into their heads. It was especially bad this year when Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan simply lied at every chance.
Charley James: Voters are not becoming better informed and candidates get away with saying almost anything that pops into their heads. It was especially bad this year when Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan simply lied at every chance.
Tom Hall: Third parties offer, once every four years, the pretense that their presidential candidates, with no supporting body of local, state or Congressional allies, will make major changes in “the system”. This is balderdash.
Robert Reich: The Koch brothers, Karl Rove, the rabid Republican right, CEOs and Wall Street titans who want to entrench their privileges and tax advantages — all of them would like nothing better than for every progressive in America to throw in the towel.

John MacMurray: The most recent Orange County GOP office seeker to get caught red handed being underhanded was, of course, Tan Nguyen.
Ruth Rosen: Will Joe Biden’s debating skills help viewers realize that Romney and Paul have repudiated everything they’ve stood for before the debate?
Stephen Lendman: VVenezuelans get the real thing. Their electoral process is the best in the world. It’s independently judged open, free and fair. Every vote counts. They’re tabulated fully and honestly.
Brent Budowsky: MDemocrats are attuned to the tectonic plate of American politics in 2012. Rightist- dominated Republicans, who have offended too many voters on too many issues and demonized even moderates in their own party, are at war with it.
