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!
Berry Craig: Santorum didn’t talk about the “equality of man” at the GOP-friendly Conservative Political Action Conference. Neither did Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Peter Brimelow or Robert Vandervoort.
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!
Steve Hochstadt: The Republican presidential candidates were talking to a minority of Americans, telling them they were the only true patriots. The rest of us, poor, gay, black, unionized, believers in science, supporters of a fair tax system, we were disdained.
Anthony Samad: The Republicans need a vehicle with a big enough horn to get the public’s attention. They need to raise the ideological rhetoric just to have a chance. Regardless of what it does to the nation. The rhetoric bomb is coming under hood and sheets. The question is, will the nation stand for it.
Brent Budowsky: isn’t it amazing that Newt Gingrich’s adultery seems to be a big plus with many conservatives, so long as he attacks CNN? Hypocrites!
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.
The Drug Economy, Neo Liberalism and the Social Basis of Ron Paul’s Appeal to Young Voters “New York streets where killers’ll walk like Pistol Pete And Pappy Mason, gave the young boys admiration Prince from Queens and Fritz from Harlem Street legends, the drugs kept the hood from starving” Nas, “Get Down” That big ol’ […]
Mark Naison: What we did not envision, when we created our 99% C lub, was how it would create an incredible online free speech zone and public square not only for club members, but for people with no direct connection to Fordham who found out what we were doing.
This week, Val Eisman and Mark Halfmoon debate the merits of “Challenging Ron Paul’s Followers on Racism” by Mark Naison
Mark Halfmoon: Ron Paul stands for the most important things that the corporate beneficiaries of GOP rule desire: no regulation, no taxes, every-man-for-himself-only-the-strong-survive “free” market rule.
Mark Naison: Ron Paul’s presidential run, either as a Republican or an independent, cannot gain traction without gaining support from at least some people of color, leftists and liberals.
Brent Budowsky: I do not believe that Paul has a racist bone in his body, but I do believe he should apologize for what was written in a newsletter bearing his name and advancing his interests.
