Anita Finlay on Newsmax TV Talking Hillary, Edward Snowden and Due Process 7/8/2014

Yesterday I had the pleasure of rejoining Ed Berliner on Midpoint/Newsmax TV to discuss Hillary Clinton and her remarks about Edward Snowden, the speculation of her 2016 campaign, the pretend “catfight” between Hillary and Elizabeth Warren and more…there is so much “gotcha” out there. I set the record straight! Our Skype connection was not ideal yesterday, but I think you’ll enjoy the interview anyway! *************************** Anita...

Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle Debate Hillary, Leadership and Media Manipulation 6/10/2014

On June 1oth, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched her book, “Hard Choices.”  Her blitz interview tour, starting with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, was cause for Jerry to grill me on her every talking point: the “dead broke” gaffe, her IWR vote from 2002 (yes, it is still an issue to some), and much more.  Jerry and I debate the value of experience vs. the...

Anita Finlay, Jerry Doyle and the Leadership Test 4/29/2014

As Bill Clinton recently pointed out, the media tends to glom on to a narrative and never let go, which often means promoting The Dangerous Allure of the Shiny New Toy in politics to the detriment of those more capable.  As I wrote in my linked article above, Often, voter disappointment with current leadership and big media’s boredom with the experienced pols waiting in the wings...

The Dangerous Allure of the Shiny New Toy

Often, voter disappointment with current leadership and big media’s boredom with the experienced pols waiting in the wings prompts us to turn over a new rock and give untested candidates a chance.  The advantages to such persons are obvious.  They have no record of any significance to hang around them, as their complaints against ‘the man’ are all we have to go on.  “Damned straight,”...

Past is Prologue: Media Again Derides Hillary as an Entitled “Corporate” Candidate

In an interview on CNN’s Crossfire, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who last week intimated he’d make a better president than Hillary Clinton, avoided attacking her despite host S.E. Cupp’s efforts to get him to brand Hillary as an “old guard” candidate and the pawn of corporations.  Refusing to take the bait, Sanders instead discussed the need for solutions to bolster the middle and working classes, badly damaged but...

Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle Talk Millennials Minus Pundit Spin 3/18/2014

Jerry and I discuss Millennials Abandoning Obama: Fickle Youth or Something Deeper.  Pundits are trying desperately to justify the independent streak of Millennials (Gen Yers), since they don’t seem as enamored of the President’s policies, particularly the Affordable Care Act, as the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank and his brethren assumed they would be. The journey of this current generation has been a rough one, coming of...

Millennials Abandoning Obama: Fickle Youth or Something Deeper?

In his latest column, Washington Post’s Dana Milbank lamented that the youth vote, 15 million strong, who swept Obama into office have “abandoned him in his hour of need.”  With ‘his presidency on the line,’ Millennials seem to be turning their collective backs on the President’s health care plan: “The administration announced last week that only 1.08 million people ages 18 to 34 had signed...

Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul and the Female Libido

Women represent 53% of the voting electorate.  Vital as it is for Republicans to gain female votes in 2014, their need will reach critical mass in the 2016 Presidential election.  Despite a 100-page RNC post-mortem prescribing greater outreach, rather than heed that advice, today’s Republican Party continues to shoot itself in the foot with offensive remarks and legislative actions that flout their aims. Continued male...

The Dishonest Coverage of “Hillary’s Hit List”

The Dishonest Coverage of “Hillary’s Hit List”

Chris Christie’s political hopes took a hit last week as the burgeoning “Bridge-Gate” scandal painted him and those in his inner circle as bullies who will exact ugly retribution from a political foe.  Prior to that, big media, in their unending polling parlor game, had already decided Christie was the Republican best positioned to beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. No sooner did he apologize his...
