Steve Mikulan: If Texas is, as Perry claims, luring so many jobs away from other states, that doesn’t make him a job creator – only a job thief.
Brent Budowsky: Davis is the leader of a great and uplifting movement for change in Texas, while Abbott is the tired champion of a corrupted Texas Republican Party whose leading voices divide and embarrass the Lone Star State.

Walt Brasch: Fifteen states, dominated by Republican governorships and legislatures, by declaring they won’t allow Medicaid expansion, are on record as placing political interests before the health of their citizens.
Carl Matthes: Bitterly disappointed that their big ideas were solidly rejected by American citizens, Romney/Ryan, vapid and insipid Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates, are now trying to digest a heaping-helping of crow covered with sour grapes.
Tina Dupuy: Romney, after being staunchly pro-choice disclosing his family friend, Ann Keenan, died of an illegal abortion in 1963, now says he’d like to see it illegal once again. Except, he says, for women who are victims.
Brent Budowsky: MDemocrats are attuned to the tectonic plate of American politics in 2012. Rightist- dominated Republicans, who have offended too many voters on too many issues and demonized even moderates in their own party, are at war with it.
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: Commentators should question whether Romney’s career suggests that he possesses the qualifications of political integrity, compassion for all Americans, and decisiveness of command to be president and commander in chief.
Tina Dupuy: Republicans botched their war on religion with the word “slut.” Oh and by proposing laws against women getting equal pay, and a right to privacy or recourse if a doctor lies to them.
Steve Hochstadt: These guys are not talking to Jews. They are talking about Israel to their base, where Jews are few and far between. Israel for them is just another weapon in their war against Obama. And everyone in Jerusalem knows it.
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!
Joseph Palermo: If someone like Todd who represents a “liberal” network can’t see Colbert’s parody for what it is then it truly illustrates how disconnected the corporate media have become.
