Sheria Reid: The depth of depravity that feeds racism at this level counts on being able to stay in the shadows. They don’t want those of us who find their beliefs repulsive to see them.
Tom Hall: Clearly, Romney has no issue with the doctrine of lying to achieve any goal he wants. But his lying about his religious beliefs doesn’t mean that other people can’t tell the truth about those religious beliefs.
Brent Budowsky: Mitt Romney should disclose 10 years of his tax returns. He should disclose exactly how much personal wealth he achieved through investments in firms that destroyed American jobs.
Brent Budowsky: Romney is the perfect foil for the president’s reelection strategy. He is the ultimate Republican to make any Democrat look populist at a moment in history when populism is rising.
Wais Hassan: Whitman’s Spanish-language makeover in the general election is a major shift from the tone that she struck in the GOP primary, when the challenge from conservative Steve Poizner pushed her to the right on the issue.
Anthony Asadullah Samad: It seems the Republicans need to pump themselves up every couple of months or so these days. It’s not so much that they are meeting that troubles me. It’s sorta like an AA meeting except here it’s where “ideologue-holics” come together and try to sober up on their 2008 Presidential defeat with new rhetoric that gets more and more extreme with each outing. This time, it was at the 2010 Southern Republican Convention in New Orleans that the more “radical” elements of the party come together to try to micromanage the Presidency and give a demented spin on the course of current affairs.
