Who could forget her words at the Democratic National Convention in 1992? Keynoter Ann Richards, referring to then Vice President Bush: "Poor George, he can't help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth." Maybe the Bush family had the last laugh two years later. Let's go to Texas in November 1994. Unemployment across the state hit its lowest level in four years. Test scores are up and se ...

Photo by Gabriel Sozzi via Wikimedia Commons As a fallen-away "cradle Catholic," one who used to love arguing with my religion teachers about things like reincarnation, or women priests ("But if only men can be priests because Jesus only picked male apostles, shouldn't priests have to be Jewish, too?"), I get a kick out of Pope Francis. He reminds me of that all-too-brief reign of Pope ...

The Republican Party's Cynical Electoral Philosophy

Nov 4 2014 8:29am CST | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Last week, the Supreme Court upheld a law that could disenfranchise 600,000 Texans. But the effects of the law won't fall equally: African-Americans and Latinos are 305 percent and 195 percent less likely (respectively) to have the necessary forms of identification than whites. The Republican party is increasingly unpopular, and relies almost exclusively on white voters. The charts below show the 2008 if only white men voted and if only people of color voted (source). Since 2008, people of ...

With the midterm elections almost here, the volume of attack ads is deafening. Spending on broadcast TV and national cable ads for U.S. Senate, House, and gubernatorial races has now topped $1 billion for the 2014 election cycle, according to a report released Oct. 29 by the Wesleyan Media Project. Of the 2.2 million political ads TV viewers have seen since early last year, 600,000 were aired by outside groups, not candidates themselves. Almost 40 percent of these came from so-called ...

The Pyrrhic Victory: Tuesday Could End the GOP

Nov 2 2014 1:11pm CST | Source: Big Government

Some prominent Republicans seem to be feeling their oats, assuming what are sometimes infamously referred to as 'RINO's' or Republicans in name only by the Conservative GOP base, eat oats, of course. Mitt Romney is merely channeling Jeb Bush here in an increasingly obvious last minute GOP establishment gesture to reach out to Hispanics, perhaps especially in Colorado, as we move closer to election day. On "Fox News Sunday, former Gov. M ...

It's Up to Us on November 4th: The 2014 Elections and Beyond

While the pundits and pollsters are predicting a Republican takeover of the Senate, it would be wise to take their prognostications with a grain of salt and not let them become a self-fulfilling prophesy. After all, even those so-called "experts" are not infallible. They didn't see the coming tsunami of the Tea Party in 2010 that swept into the House and effectively took control of DC. The Democrats were blindsided in that electi ...

Some things in life are self-evident. Fire burns, supply side economics doesn't work, and no Democrat, ever, under any circumstances, no matter what, should even think about offering to cut one solitary cent from Social Security, through partial privatization or means testing or raising the retirement age. Why so many Democrats seem to have to relearn the latter lesson each and every election cycle, is really, truly, mind-boggling. Yes, I know Wall Street, in a w ...

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu has doubled down on her support for the federal health care law even as polls show the revamp remains unpopular in Louisiana and a new Republican attack ad launched Tuesday hits the Democratic incumbent again for her vote.
