Opinion: Grover Puts Himself Before Party And Country

Grover is the ultimate in single interest constituencies in Washington. He is not accountable to anybody. He does not disclose who funds him, who pays him to do what he does or how much he is paid to blackmail GOP Members of Congress to sign his pledge not to raise taxes.

Opinion: Chris Christie Is In The Wrong Business

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is obviously in the wrong business. He is becoming more of a television celebrity by the minute and getting much better reviews as a television performer than as governor.

Opinion: Elections Have Consequences

The day after the voters spoke in our democracy, Republicans sought to set aside the results and focus on winning next time. It is not just a losing proposition for Republicans, it is a losing proposition for America.

Opinion: Karl Rove Is The Most Overrated Person In Politics Today

Rove has managed to spin himself a personal fortune in national politics. His reputation, however, does not match his accomplishments.

Opinion: Four More Years Of Gridlock

Even the most liberal of Democrats must agree that Obama’s inability to get foes to work with him is severely impeding any progress this country.

Opinion: Ten Reasons Mitt Romney Lost The Election

Today, Republicans feel a combination of confusion, disbelief, and anger as to how a slim majority of Americans can possibly want four more years of the Obama administration in the White House. To many, it seems inconceivable that people want to take a chance on more of the same.
