|Some very technical ACA and wage theft questions
I have a small business with 3 employees. Prior to the ACA we had a group health insurance plan. We were switched into a new group plan as of January of this year. The plan was wretched. It was ...
|The Far Right Is Crazy Like a Fox and Routing the GOP
From the beginning, I've thought the major element behind the defund Obamacare push was to gain far right Republicans leverage in their fight against the rest of the GOP.
|This election feels different
In 2008 and during the Clinton years, the Presidential election felt like victory. We were elated. Absolutely elated. But this year I can't help but notice something else. This is different. In ...
|A former trial attorney's thoughts on the debate

|The debate is over and Romney has a lot of explaining to do
There's no doubt we are hyper sensitive to all things which we think might hurt President Obama's re election chances even in the slightest.

I thought I had thought through what Mitt Romney did yesterday pretty well. But every time I think I have a handle on it, I read a new diary which points out some other act of ridiculous foolishness.
|Mitt Romney is Endangering American Lives
There are now potentially four violent movements in countries which endanger the lives of American citizens. The countries are Yemen, Iraq, Libya and Egypt.
Politically, Mitt Romney is best served by a disillusioned and disgusted electorate. The worse America feels the better it is for him. That should be self evident and while he says his campaign is ...
|While the United States was under attack and Mitt Romney
1. While the United States was under attack in two countries, Mitt Romney chose to basically call the commander in chief disgraceful and someone who apologizes for America.
|Candidate Obama Passed the Leadership Test. Romney Failed.
Leadership is the willingness to take an honest position involving important matters. To explain why you think you are right. And then have the courage to see if you're right and have the courage ...

One thing I've learned, if you feel devastated over last night's devastating result in Wisconsin, you don't get what this game is all about.
|So what if the Court strikes down the mandate?
Maybe I don't know as much as I should, but if the Court strikes down the individual mandate and leaves the rest of the law intact, isn't Obama still a huge winner?
|Only a Conservative Could Have Saved the Olympics
Mitt Romney saved the Olympics.
|An impartial view of the Obama Presidency
Whether one agrees or disagrees with President Barack Obama, I think any conversation about how he has governed should start by acknowledging one simple fact. His is a Presidency mired in crises of ...
|Deficit deal and Republican Primaries
When I first heard about the Obama deficit ...
|Good Advice From Frank Luntz
Frank Luntz was on NPR today and spoke honestly about how he would advocate on behalf of NPR and the issue of tax payer funding. http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2011/04/06/135184242/gop-...
|Bizarro Obama World.
Let's assume that instead of electing Democrat Barrack Obama, we elected Republican Barrack Obama. And let's assume he was equally as transformative. For example, instead of passing health care, ...

|Obama bin lying signs. Where do they come from?
I was struck the other day when I saw a sign at a McCain rally that read: Obama bin lying. I have been volunteering for the Obama campaign in Pennsylvania and on Sunday we were assigned to the ...
|Why can't democrats ever talk about the obvious?
One of the constant laments regarding the Democratic Party is their inability to effectively punch and counter punch with Republicans. Given the extraordianry amount of material Democrats have, it ...
