Tina Dupuy: We’ve spent trillions to protect ourselves against terrorists and done nothing to keep our biggest cities above water in a storm.
Randy Shaw: Considering that polls show that 99% of all women and 98% of Catholic women who have had sex have used contraceptives, Democrats should follow Senator Barbara Boxer’s lead and aggressively frame the November elections around this issue.
Anthony Samad: Do Republicans expect these two segments of Obama’s enormous base to stay home in 2012? If they do, they had better wake up. The “Obama Wave” is waitin’ on ’em.
Linda Milazzo: It’s time to right this wrong. Holding office in America is not for the purpose of serving Israel. It’s for the purpose of serving America, the American people, and America’s honor in the world.
Seth Hoy: For both parties, courting the Latino vote must not only involve reigning in the fringe and turning down the fear-mongering, but some honest to God passes at immigration reform.
Dick Price: Certainly, a recent tour through packed political venues around Los Angeles will tell you that there’s no lack of enthusiasm among Democrats, at least in this part of the world.
Tina Dupuy: And as far as Fiorina’s focus on terrorism killing – well, an average of 42 Americans die from being struck by lightning every year. As opposed to – well, almost none from terrorist attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11.
Jerry Drucker: Carly Fiornia, as a good lockstep Republican, would be all for turning control and regulations over to Big Oil, Big Banks, Big Wall Street, and Big Corporations.
Randy Shaw: The media always promotes Republicans like Campbell or John McCain who are reactionary and corporate-owned on most issues but have a few stands that are common to Democrats. This makes them “mavericks,” and allegedly shows they can appeal to Democrats.
Paul Hogarth: There’s no good reason why Democrats cannot win the California governorship this year. Barack Obama won the state with 61% of the vote, not a single Congressional district has a majority of registered Republicans left, and Arnold’s legacy as Governor will be driving the state to bankruptcy. In other words, the real fight should have been the Democratic primary – and as long as progressives turn out the base in November, the Republican will lose.
