Eric Laumen: Amidst the controversy of the Starr commission’s Monica Lewinsky investigation, President Clinton, a centrist through and through, was forced to fall back on the support of his party’s left-progressive wing and abandon bipartisanship.
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!
Joseph Palermo: Worse than Swift Boating, worse than Willie Horton, Mitt Romney is running the most craven, dishonest, and hypocritical campaign we’ve seen in contemporary American politics.
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.
Berry Craig: Birtherism is cool with a lot of tea party tilting Republican white folks who still aren’t that cool with Romney. Hence, he hasn’t flat told Donald Trump to clam up.
Tom Degan: Republican governors all across this diseased land have been trying to undo the job growth of the last 25 months for no other purpose than to make the president look bad for the November Election
Berry Craig: Right on cue, GOP grandees have chorused that the president was “threatening,” “intimidating” and “bullying” the Republican-majority high court with his recent comments.
Tina Dupuy: Is it perfect? No. Could it be improved? Absolutely. However, ObamaCare is the opposite of socialism, it’s a market solution.
Derrick Ashong: In the end it seems some conservatives truly love individual responsibility…as long as they don’t have to practice it themselves.
Robert Reich: There will be too many videos of Willard “Mitt” Romney during the primary saying things that were designed to appeal to increasingly far-right, far-out GOP primary voters – but will strike most Americans as bizarre if not despicable.
Tina Dupuy: Despite the conservative bona fides, the South isn’t pulling herself up by her bootstraps … mainly because she can’t see her toes she’s about to lose to diabetes.
Victoria Defrancesco Soto: The 2010 mid-term election demonstrated that immigration issues could be a potent political force within the GOP. Candidates across the country, and in particular in the South came into office by espousing harsh anti-immigration policies.
Victoria Defrancesco Soto: Gingrich is in that sweet spot to the right of Romney and to the left of Santorum. It is in this spot that Romney needs to concern himself.
