Martha Burk: We’re (still) being forced to swim in the muck of Anthony Weiner’s sextcapades, and now we know who’s at fault. It’s Hillary Clinton.
Kevin Zeese: For a whistleblower who exposed war crimes and unethical behavior in U.S. foreign policy to be facing a lengthy prison term, while the people exposed by government documents are not even investigated, shows how confused the United States has become.
Brent Budowsky: Imagine if the next president is a woman who breaks through the glass ceiling in America, once and for all, and slams shut the revolving door of special interest ownership of the government of America, in ways that are real and true and honest.
Brent Budowsky: True conservatives such as William F. Buckley and Edmund Burke must be mourning in heaven the collapse of modern conservative thought.
Ted Vaill: Republican hotheads are trying to goad President Obama into a foreign policy mistake, which they can use to their advantage in the 2014 and 2016 elections. Ignore them.
Brent Budowsky: Issa should cut out the public relations, cancel any further show-horse hearings, prepare an intelligent and bipartisan report, and stop wasting taxpayer money on these one-party spectacles.
Brent Budowsky: Don’t laugh. Ted Cruz is apparently thinking of bringing his ability to outrage a majority of voters and alienate a majority of his Senate Republican colleagues to a campaign to be commander in chief.
Brent Budowsky: Texas is indeed going Blue. The only question is when. If Republicans sabotage immigration reform, Texas Democrats may not have to wait for a Hillary Clinton presidential campaign in 2016.
Brent Budowsky: The Senate becomes a farce: Democrats propose, Republicans filibuster. Democrats retreat, Congress recesses. Tiny victories are hailed as great achievements. The Democratic legacy is dumbed down by the day. The voice of a generation is silenced.
Brent Budowsky: Pay equity for women could influence the political future of America. This includes turning Texas blue, especially because the entire Texas Republican delegation to the U.S. House and Senate opposes pay equity for women, while Texas Hispanic women are among those treated most unfairly.
Brent Budowsky: If a Democratic House and Senate are elected in 2014, it would re-empower Obama for one of the strongest closing two years of an eight-year presidency in modern history, which could avoid lame-duck status almost entirely with what historians would ultimately describe as “Obama’s third term.”
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?
Randy Shaw: Americans may “hate” politics, but the media cannot get enough of it. Since Obama’s re-election we have been deluged with stories not simply about Hillary Clinton, but also about Republicans Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush positioning themselves for runs in 2016.
