Berry Craig: I’m not against Romney just because he was born on third base and thinks he hit a triple. Likewise, it makes no sense for any union member to vote for Santorum just because his grandfather was a coal miner.
Brent Budowsky: Here come the Romney attack ads against Santorum in Michigan, the vulture politics of the vulture capitalist who sets new standards of negative campaigning!
Brent Budowsky: The Hope America Fails Republicans cannot handle the truth that the auto policy worked wonders. The Republicans can’t handle the truth, because they are so negative that what is good for America is bad for Republicans!
Brent Budowsky: If George Romney were here today, Mitt Romney would probably be calling him a European socialist, while George Romney would probably be supporting the auto policies of Obama and possibly endorsing Obama for reelection.
Ted Vaill: Republican operatives will work hard to undercut Mitt in the weeks and months ahead, so that Romney will be their nominee, in spite of his Bain baggage.
Robert Reich: Gingrich has tried to defend himself by saying Freddy paid him as a “historian,” but anyone with half a brain knows Freddy wasn’t interested in history.
Lawrence Wittner: Mitt Romney seems likely to become the Republican candidate and the next president, so we should carefully examine his first major foreign and military policy address
Tracy Emblem: Mitt Romney offers no solutions on how individuals and states will be able to reduce health care costs. Without buying power or other cost containment provisions, the economics of “market” is always what the market will bear. There is no incentive to lower costs because people need medical care – it’s a commodity that must be purchased.
Robert Reich: With Trump, Gingrich, Bachmann, and possibly Palin now in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, “GOP” is starting to mean Goofy, Outrageous, and Peculiar. Mitt would pose the most serious challenge to a second Obama term.
Andrea Nill: Romney has decided to play it safe by touting border security and opposing immigration reform on the grounds that he’d have to read a really long bill
Andrea Nill: Hatch’s flip-flop may have something to do with the fact that he’s up for reelection in 2012 and has already been identified as the tea party’s next target.
Carl Matthes: After speaking directly with God, the current Leading Prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 86-year-old Boyd Packer revealed last year that Mormons must form an alliance with Catholic Bishops in California to stop the desecration of Christian teaching. The aim of this unholy alliance? Stop same-sex marriage.
