Opinion: Republicans Are Abandoning Romney’s Sinking Ship

Romney is dragging his own campaign and every Republican down. Republican operatives and House and Senate candidates have conceded as much throughout the month of September.

Opinion: Romney’s 47% Don’t Pay Taxes Remark Shows He’s Exactly Who We Thought He Was

The recently released tape of Romney speaking to donors at a closed door fundraiser has exposed Mitt Romney to, in fact, be the person Democrats have portrayed him to be: a rich, out of touch, arrogant man that has no respect or connection to the American middle class and absolutely no interest in making the American middle class stronger.

Opinion: Mitt Romney’s Terrible Week

Last week Romney had yet another gaffe and error filled week. Week after week Romney and his campaign can’t get it together.

Opinion: Are Regular Guys What America Will Ultimately Vote For?

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are going for the “campy” image which screams “we’re just regular guys” on the 2012 campaign trail. America has never seen the final stretch of a presidential campaign like Obama and Biden are presenting this time around.

Opinion: Romney’s Criticism Of Obama’s Foreign Policy Is On Target

As unfortunate as the events are, Romney’s comments about Obama ring true. Prior to the tragic event and even after, President Obama appears to excuse and apologize for the horrendous events that take place in the world – including those against Americans.

Opinion: Economic Confidence Rises Despite Republican Efforts Against It

Republicans will continue to talk down the economy for the next two months specifically because they want the economy, and the country, to suffer in order to win an election.

Opinion: 2012 Democratic National Convention: Superstar-less And On The Defensive

What a difference four horrendous years makes. Thinking back to the Democratic National Convention of 2008 and now seeing what’s going on in Charlotte, North Carolina this week at the Democratic National Convention of 2012 shows stark differences. The Democrats have no star power and pale in comparison to the Republicans’ star-packed convention in Tampa.

Opinion: Romney and Ryan Are Real Life Versions Of GOP Caricatures Of Kerry and Gore

In an odd turn of events, the Republicans in Tampa nominated real life versions of their cartoon versions of Kerry and Gore. Republicans thought John Kerry should be criticized for changing positions. But Kerry is not in the same league as Romney who ran as a pro-choice candidate and promised to do more for gay rights than Ted Kennedy.

Opinion: Paul Ryan And His Little White Lies

While Paul Ryan is entitled to his own opinions, he is not entitled to his own facts. He lied to America about Medicare. He lied to America about the debt commission. He really lied to America about the stimulus and America’s debt rating.

Opinion: National Security Shouldn’t Get Lost In This Campaign

Our economy is on a slow recovery – slower than anyone wants. But the lack of serious discussion about national security and the world we live in is troubling.

U.S. Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) (Photo credit: akin.org)

Opinion: Akin’s Position On Rape And Abortion Is The GOP Platform

The basic fact is that Romney, Ryan and Republican’s are uncomfortable with a few of the words Congressman Akin used. They are not, however, uncomfortable with the policy position he was expressing. The record shows that they march in lockstep with Congressman Akin.

Opinion: Despite Denials Akin’s Comments Are Part GOP War On Women

Congressman Akin’s comments are unconscionable and while Congressman Akin owns the words that came from his mouth, the sentiment and his policy goals are shared by both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, despite their statements today.

Opinion: Joe Biden’s Asinine Comments Aren’t Cute Anymore

The fact that Joe Biden is only a heartbeat away from the presidency should not only scare the hell out of every American, it should be reason enough for the Romney-Ryan ticket to win the 2012 election by a landslide.

Opinion: Paul Ryan And The War on Women

If you like the GOP war on women, you are going to love Paul Ryan. After all, Ryan’s record on women’s health could easily be mistaken for one of W. Mitt Romney’s primary opponents, Rick Santorum.

Opinion: Ryan VP Pick Changes Electoral Math

Paul Ryan has changed the Electoral College math. With the pick, Romney has chosen a path that writes off almost all of the country and focuses the election on the industrial Midwest.

Opinion: Romney Tries To Reboot Losing Campaign With Ryan Pick

After months of failing to find a way to gain ground in the presidential campaign, Mitt Romney has hit the reset button by picking Paul Ryan as his running mate, but once the dust has settled and the Conventions are over, it is hard to see how Romney will have changed the direction of the 2012 presidential campaign.

Opinion: Mitt Romney’s Excellent Choice: Paul Ryan

Romney wisely went with a safe and sure bet because Paul Ryan is a strong, conservative-approved candidate whose image is as clean as Romney’s.

Axelrod: Paul Ryan Is A ‘Hard-Right Ideologue,’ ‘Concerning Pick’

Chief Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod on Monday called U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) a “far-right ideologue,” and said his selection as Mitt Romney’s running mate will be a “concerning pick” for voters who do not share his values.
