Joe Palermo: Scherer and Altman leave Time readers with the impression that somehow Nancy Pelosi is equally responsible for the Republican Tea Party crazies in the House who are driving the country into the ground to win concessions from the president they despise.
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.
Wendy Block: It’s heartbreakingly clear that the Democrats won’t act courageously. But a number of non-partisan outside groups will. The MOVI coalition and Common Cause are sponsoring Prop C on the Los Angeles ballot next month, to let voters tell electeds to fight Citizens United. They need you.
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?
Norman Solomon: As battles over key issues of economic fairness intensify on Capitol Hill, we’re very likely to see a lot of Democrats — led by President Obama — preening themselves as virtuously non-dogmatic while they rebuff the minimal humanistic demands of progressive constituencies.
Brent Budowsky: Democratic House challengers in 2014 will clobber GOP House incumbents in 2014 who vote against Medicare and Social Security.
Brent Budowsky: If Rove is not colluding with Romney in violation of law, there is no law, even by the shabby standards of the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United.
Brent Budowsky: Great dreams ultimately come true because of conviction politicians like Nancy Pelosi. Her mission lives on. Her work is far from done.
Charley James: Justice John Roberts has refused to corral his equally conservative Associate Justices from selling their integrity to right-wing political groups and causes.
Brent Budowsky: Word on the street is Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Democrats will launch a major battle supporting pay equity for the women of America that could be a defining moment in the 2012 campaign.
Jim Rhodes: The Republicans claim they are for small government; but new legislation, not only in Washington but states controlled by Republicans, is obsessively concerned with what women can do with their reproductive systems.
Brent Budowsky: It is far too early to predict the 2012 elections. But I suggest that Reid is rocking, Pelosi is rolling and Democrats are rising
Brent Budowsky: There are smiles today throughout the Democratic base because the fighting spirit is back for the Dems.
