Jerry Drucker: Mitt apparently now wishes to HARVEST THE UNITED STATES, as he would for a food crop. So in the spirit of Romney’s interests in cooked books, here are some recipes:
Joseph Palermo: The hate brigades have taken aim at Ms. Crowley not because she showed “bias” or was “wrong” about the facts or exceeded the role of moderator, but because she performed a genuine act of journalism in front of 65 million viewers.
Stephen Lendman: CNN and other scoundrel media vilify Syria and Iran unjustifiably. At the same time, they suppress horrific atrocities committed by US allies. Bahrain and Saudi Arabia are two of the worst.
Julie Driscoll: When Fox ran out of ways to protect the golden boy Ryan, after they’d media-mauled, after they’d gloated about their poll showing a clear Ryan win, Fox launched the smear that Biden was drunk at the debate:
Joe Palermo: It has become clear by now that the Republican candidate for president, Mitt Romney, views American society as an aggregate of atomized individuals each seeking to maximize personal gain
Tammy Ingram: Ryan’s position embodies what one author has called — uncynically — “libertarianism with benefits”: Taking advantage of federal spending while at the same time protesting against it.
Charley James: America’s priorities, far too many of its politicians, and even a disturbing number of our everyday folks, are brutal – and brutish – about how to deal with homeless people like me who have lost everything except our dignity:
Peter Dreier: It was clear from the get-go last night that Bill didn’t want to talk about Pete Seeger. He wanted to talk about why I called him a “right-wing buffoon”
Michael Sigman: Romney quadrupled down when he told Fox News that “(Obama’s) serving a dish that’s in contradiction to the truth.” Them’s fightin’ words!
Berry Craig: None of the Craigs will be chowing down at a Chick-fil-A on August 1, or any other day. We love fried chicken, but homophobia of any recipe gives us indigestion.
Tina Dupuy: If Barack Obama had been the Democratic president who said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” Republicans would call it capitulation. “Obama surrenders to America’s enemies!”
Steven Mikulan: Where do the Norquists and the Pauls go, once they’ve drowned government and sold the bathtub for copper scrap? Probably to very lucrative sinecures on foundation boards.
Berry Craig: The folks at Fox aren’t real newshounds. They’re rabble-rousing hacks in the tradition of the country’s old-time partisan press.
