Joe Palermo: These latest lines of attack — Trump criticizing Hillary Clinton for belonging to the female gender and Cruz turning to Fiorina as the anti-Hillary — not only expose Trump’s misogyny and Cruz’s cynicism, but the underlying Republican attitude toward women in politics generally.
Lance Simmens: The politics of fear, anger, frustration, cynicism, and simpleminded denial of complex, long-term thinking have fostered a parasite class of political opportunists who have no more concern for the well-being of either the country or the planet than the proverbial man in the moon.
Tina Dupuy: There are more Americans convinced the Rapture will commence before 2050 than feel global warming is a concern.
James Otto: Fiorina fired 18,000 U.S. workers in 2003 and replaced them with imported foreign workers as CEO of Hewlett-Packard and admitted she wished she had “done them all faster.”
