Walter Moss: In the aftermath of the “shameful day” we have just experienced, where among any of the Senate nay-voters is conscience, ethics, integrity, morality? Gutlessness, not courage, seems triumphant.
Karen Finney: Rejecting the false choice of either/or narratives, the idea that “we’re all in this together” and the focus on finding inclusive ways to embrace the bigger picture has been a consistent theme throughout President Obama’s life.
Joseph Palermo: The destruction that “Sam Becile’s” little Youtube movie caused could in comparison to the potential damage that outside groups could do to American politics.
Julie Driscoll: Liar, liar, pants on fire . . . Mitt Romney is apparently working to out-do Michele Bachmann as the ultimate lying machine.
Victoria Defrancesco Soto: In the 2012 election cycle we will see ads targeted to left-handed political science majors at Big 12 Schools — OK, maybe not quite that specific, but close.
Q2 Given the antics of the cavalcade of clowns vying for the Republican presidential nomination, what do you this election cycle? I’m not sure things would get worse than they are under Obama. The same thing that will happen if Barack Bush wins. Economic inequality will continue to increase; wars will be never ending The […]
Tina Dupuy: You know what’s never been said? “We should have MORE Republican primary debates.” Why? Because there are (by my count) 734,589 debates this election cycle and not enough hours in the day (spent working harder for less money) to watch eight Republican candidates stand around agreeing with each other for two hours every night.
Patty Bellasalma: Rachel Maddow has repeatedly pointed out that Democrats need to stand with public employees and working families but too many of them don’t seem to be listening.
Seth Hoy: According to a poll released this week, “U.S. immigration policy” beat out “economy and jobs” as the issue most important for Hispanic voters.
Paul Hogarth: I look forward to this Conference as a way of re-engaging in the national struggle, and harnessing the energy everyone with a Wi-Fi connection can take to fight for progressive change.
Tom Hall: Sure, the Tea Party will win this fall’s election cycle. Yes, they will do every thing they can to disrupt any progressive efforts of the President. But even now, before their election victories have been counted, they are already beginning to war amongst themselves. They are eagerly acting to disprove any belief in the “values” they proclaim. Their hypocrisy will be their undoing.
Mario Solis-Marich: Robert Deposada, a GOP operative from the failed Bush Presidency, crossed a critical line this week by developing and placing ads urging Latino voters to stay home and not vote during this important election cycle. Like La Malinche, the infamous traitor in Mexican history, Robert Deposada has sold out his community.
Wendy Block: The Citizens United decision doesn’t address the homeland of donors. So what would stop multi-national companies or even foreign countries from procuring such potential winners as Sharron Angle, Joe Miller, or Christine O’Donnell? Who are the people/corporations behind these mysterious ads? Could Osama bin Laden be a donor? After all, the Supreme Court did rule in favor of free speech for all money.
