Opinion: Democrats Pick Another Losing Issue Focusing On Binders

It’s great that Obama made the binders the headlines since last Tuesday night’s debate because the truth about Mitt Romney’s record on hiring women and the truth about Obama’s alleged war on women is finally coming out – and helping Romney in the polls.

Opinion: Crowley’s Obama Favoritism Completely Discredits Her As A Journalist

There were so many blatant signs of Obama-favored bias displayed by CNN political correspondent Candy Crowley that one scarcely knows where to begin. She caused the difference between Romney’s huge win in the first debate and his extremely narrow win in the second.

Opinion: In Tonight’s Debate Mitt Romney’s Lies Will Catch Up With Him

Romney so misrepresented his record in Denver that it will be hard for the former Massachusetts Governor to walk it back tonight because Romney will be lying about his record to a room full of voters.

Opinion: Romney Will Win The Second Debate Too

Much like the first debate, GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney will win the second debate as well but on a much smaller scale. The reasons for the second win in a row will be quite different on the surface but will be much the same beneath the surface.

Reality Check: The Facts Vs. The Vice Presidential Debate

The Vice Presidential nominees demonstrated style and substance in their feisty, first and only debate. But also, a lot of spin.

Opinion: Joe Biden Schooled Paul Ryan With Facts And Substance

Mitt Romney’s apprentice salesman stepped on the stage last night and delivered his talking points, but little more. Throughout the night, Joe Biden delivered lesson after lesson to the ambitious young Congressman from Wisconsin.

Opinion: Ryan-Biden Vice Presidential Debate Necessarily Spirited

Both candidates did what they had set out to do. Biden reached out to his base, and Ryan spoke to those who don’t like the direction the country is headed. Republicans are likely not happy that Ryan didn’t deliver the knock-out debate Mitt Romney did a week ago while Democrats are, as previously stated, ecstatic Biden didn’t have a bad night.

Reality Check: The Vice-Presidential Debate

The guys who usually play second fiddle in the race for the White House stole the spotlight in a much different debate than their bosses gave us last week.

Opinion: Biden Must Box In Ryan In The VP Debate And Hold Him Accountable For Mitt Flops

First, try to make Paul Ryan look inexperienced and un-Presidential and, two, hold the Romney/Ryan ticket accountable for their ever changing policies and focus on Mitt Romney as someone that cannot be trusted.

Opinion: Gas Prices Are The Government and Obama’s Fault

Americans continually hear that the president of the United States can do nothing about gas prices. John Hofmeister says that isn’t true. The doubled gas prices could have been avoided but no one in a political position who can do anything about the prices wants to do anything.

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: We Are Better Off Than We Were Four Years Ago

Tonight, when Vice President Biden and President Obama address the country the question before them is an obvious one: are we better off than we were four years ago? The answer is equally obvious: YES!

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.

Opinion: Akin Incident Shows Contrast Between The Republicans And Democrats

Republicans are kept accountable for their own misspeaks and actions. Unlike the Democrats’ life jacket being tossed out to a sinking politician by the Party, when a Republican politician does the inexcusable, the Republican Party throws him an anchor – and that’s how it should be.

Opinion: Will Hillary Save The White House For Obama?

With President Barack Obama’s Vice President Joe Biden messing up more and more on the campaign trail as time passes, rumors of Biden being sent home to Delaware for good have abounded since last Friday. Will Hillary Clinton step into his place to save the White House for Obama and the Democrats?

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.
