Hillary’s Genius

May 7, 2015

0

Hillary Clinton’s call for a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants currently living illegally in the United States, as well as her desire to take more expansive executive action than President Obama has taken, has put the squeeze on GOP hopefuls. The result is an awkward silence by the usually garrulous bunch. Why […]

December 3, 2012

0

This afternoon Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) sent The White House the GOP’s “solution” to the fiscal cliff. Like their presidential candidate’s entire campaign, the GOP letter tried to put the onus of austerity on the middle class and was devoid of specifics. A few things we do know ($2.2 T savings over 10 years): $800 […]

Stark Contrast of Leadership

November 9, 2012

0

The difference in how President Obama (a must see) and Governor Romney (strands workers by cancelling campaign credit cards as soon as he stepped off stage conceding the election) treated their campaign workers is more than the difference of the actions of a winning campaign and a losing one. It is an example of a […]
