Climate Change Comes to Florida: ‘Still Not Scientifically Proven Yet…’
Jeb’s Father-in-Law Was an Undocumented Alien Who Retired on U.S. Social Security

Outside Florida, Jeb Bush may be viewed as being more liberal — more reasonable and smarter — than his infamously witless, reflexively conservative brother, George W. But Floridians know better. As governor, Jeb was a right-wing hardliner — a doctrinaire supply-sider who slashed at least $14 billion in revenue to the state government by cutting […]

Obama: ACA Was the GOP’s Plan ‘Based on Conservative, Market-Based Principles Developed by the Heritage Foundation’

Five years after passage of the Affordable Care Act, the metrics point to success: the percentage of Americans who are uninsured has fallen dramatically, the runaway growth of healthcare costs has slowed, family budgets are more secure and, most importantly, lives are being saved. At an event on Wednesday marking the ACA’s fifth anniversary, Pres. […]

Ted Cruz is at Least the 197th Person to Enter the 2016 Presidential Race

While many mainstream news outlets reported that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was the first Republican to officially declare his candidacy for president in the 2016 election Monday, he’s actually 197th or more down the line, according to the Federal Election Commission. Indeed, as of yesterday, Cruz had not filed a Statement of Candidacy form with […]

Canadian Ted Cruz’s Failure to Wear an American Flag Pin at Campaign Kickoff Showed ‘Utter Contempt for Everything American’

Did you notice? When Canadian Ted Cruz launched his U.S. presidential campaign in Lynchburg, Va., yesterday, there was something conspicuously absent on his lapel. An American flag pin. Conservatives have made it clear in years past that among candidates for president there is no greater symbol of patriotism than wearing an American flag pin. In […]

After Banging the Birther Drum for Years, the GOP’s First 2016 Candidate Is a Canadian

Sen. Ted Cruz made it official yesterday. He’s running for president. It’s fair to say he has zero chance of winning his party’s nomination, much less the general election. It’s further fair to say he’s in the race for the same reason that Newt Gingrich teased a run for the presidency for so many cycles […]

Why You Felt Good About Things Before You Listened to the Pundits

There’s a new standard for judging the success of Pres. Obama’s initiatives: Every single last soul in America must be doing great before we can claim progress. Don’t believe it? Can you count the number of times you’ve heard news reported this way? Pundit: “Well yes, Freemont, unemployment continues to fall, month in and month […]

Santorum Stands Mute As S.C. Birther Claims Obama Tried to Nuke Charleston

On a swing into South Carolina last week in his never-ending but never-gonna-happen campaign to win the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum proved again that he is a political hack who lacks the gravitas — and class — required to be president. During a Q&A session at a birther, anti-Muslim summit, […]

Flashback: Rove Erases 22 Million White House Emails on Private Server at Height of U.S. Attorney Scandal – Media Yawns

Now that they’ve taken control of Congress, Republicans are wielding power much the same way they did in the Clinton era and for the six years afterward when they controlled the White House and Congress under George W. Bush: ineptly — ex. 1, 2, 3, etc. Then as now, it’s clear that the only thing […]
