Darlene Lancer: It’s all or nothing with narcissists. For Donald Trump, there are winners, like himself, and losers, and he “doesn’t like to lose.”
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.
Gary Corseri: Global Climate Change? Not a peep! As the US suffered through the hottest July in the record books, drought leaves actor-maniacs like Tom Selleck siphoning water from fire hydrants so he can keep his lawns shiny green… not a peep from our would-be Commanders-in-Chief, nor the media panel there to, er, “grill” them!
Ted Vaill: “I am very smart. I graduated first in my class at Wharton, the top school in the country.”
Brent Budowsky: If Trump tied the GOP in knots by prolonging the Republican nominating process, and prolonged the process of Republicans attacking Republicans, that would be a huge benefit for Hillary Clinton. Check that box.
Steve Hochstadt: We can discourage political littering by naming the litterbugs and choosing not to follow their example. Set an example for others; make positive contributions to our political community.
Michael Sigman: This time around, the joke is on the media who treat news about Trump the way TMZ treats “news” about the Kardashians.
Barack Obama: The Obama rhetoric about standing up for working people against “special interests” is as profuse as ever. Would you care for a spot of Kool-Aid at the Mad Hatter’s tea party?
Tina Dupuy: Trump has basically blamed all servicewomen for being assaulted. They’re culpable in their own rape because a) they’re women and b) they’re serving alongside men.
Brent Budowsky: Regarding the conservative crack-up, can you believe that CPAC honors the ubiquitous birther Donald Trump and insults the most popular national Republican, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie?
Carl Matthes: Bitterly disappointed that their big ideas were solidly rejected by American citizens, Romney/Ryan, vapid and insipid Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates, are now trying to digest a heaping-helping of crow covered with sour grapes.
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.
Brent Budowsky: The coming Republican convention might well dramatize to the nation the extremism and Obama-hate that is modern Republicanism and become an epic disaster for the GOP.
