Julie Driscoll: America doesn’t negotiate with terrorists – which is exactly why President Obama is spot on when he said that he won’t negotiate with Republicans over the debt ceiling.
Julie Driscoll: With Walker’s track record on promise-keeping, it should really come as no surprise to the cops and firefighters that he’s now going after the very unions who supported his gubernatorial campaign.
Joseph Palermo: When it comes to Syria, the old saying that even a broken clock is correct twice a day might apply to the Tea Party faction of the Republican Party.
Julie Driscoll: We’re witnessing much wailing, moaning, rending of garments and gnashing of teeth from the more insane of the right-wingers over what they deem (in their dreams) President Obama’s “impeachable offenses.”
Lauren Windsor: The strategy? Push legislation awarding electoral votes by the winner in congressional districts in the six Republican-controlled state legislatures that are currently winner-take-all states.
Julie Driscoll: Here we are, almost halfway through President Obama’s second term, and the tea party has pivoted, turning its slashing claws toward the GOP and losing ground.
Randy Shaw: The future of immigration reform could well to be decided in the next three weeks. And this will occur not in the halls of Congress but in Congressional Town Hall meetings across the nation.
Julie Driscoll: Because the tea party is full of ignorant, uneducated, sheeple, most of whom have never had an original thought, they now and will forever fail to see the irony in now weeping over their alleged “persecution” at the hands of the IRS.
Tina Dupuy: What will happen to Michele Bachmann and her beloved tea party? The Tea Party has yet to break the Republican Party’s back although they’ve left it with a considerable limp.
Randy Shaw: Democratic success in 2014 hinges not on the impact of the IRS and other “scandals” but on passing comprehensive immigration reform, rejecting the Keystone XL Pipeline, and avoiding a budget deal that undermines Social Security.
John Peeler: Obama’s also gullible in failing, after more than four years, to grasp just how obsessed the Republicans are with making him fail, without regard to the consequences for the country.
Tom Degan: Show me a guy whose antics are too weird for the GOP and I’ll show you a guy who really should be be watched – if only for our own amusement.
Julie Driscoll: Although it’s not really necessary to “know the enemy” (since our enemies have already outed themselves as idiots and numbskulls hugging their guns and building underground bunkers), it’s on sites like teaparty.org where true radical right-wingers are born, bottle-fed, nurtured and set free to wreak havoc.
