Republicans Created the Trump Train Wreck

Republicans Created the Trump Train Wreck

  The phenomenon of Donald Trump’s oncoming train wreck was precipitated by a cynical, click-bait driven corporate media and Republican fear-mongering that offered fertile ground for Trump’s rise. What a slap in the face to Republican politicians that 16 of them were defeated for the Presidential nomination by an erratic, narcissistic businessman who wouldn’t know effective policy, a truthful statement or civil behavior if it...

Trump’s Bluster Is So Incompetent, It’s Terrifying

Setting aside the mess that was the first night of the Republican Convention: the misogynist hate fest of calling Hillary Clinton every filthy name in the book, the fear-mongering rants of the speakers and  presumptive Republican nominee Trump’s wife, Melania, cribbing part of her speech from First Lady Michelle Obama, none of this compares to the jaw dropping 60 Minutes interview Donald Trump did with...

Will Candidates Start to Run from Religion?

“A Presidential candidate bringing up their faith on the campaign trail has been a long-standing part of the Election season, often with at least one exchange where the competitors try to prove that they are more devout than the others.

Republicans Double Down on Restrictive Laws for Women

In the last 4 years, Republicans have enacted more than 200 new state laws restricting abortion access. Last week, House Republicans passed a law declaring abortion illegal after 20 weeks, also requiring women to get medical attention and “counseling”  for their most painful and private decision before being allowed abortion services, even in the case of rape or incest. This was a symbolic vote destined...

Republicans in Search of a Platform?

The Republican field gets more crowded by the day, with the potential for nearly two dozen candidates jockeying for position on the debate stage. But how will they distinguish themselves from the pack? It’s early in the race, but they each need to find their focus on big issues and get beyond posturing. As author and political strategist Shawna Vercher notes, if the candidates do...

Can Jeb Bush Buy The Presidency?

Early reports estimate that the Jeb Bush super PAC, Right to Rise, will raise an estimated $100 million dollars during its first 100 days – a record for any presidential candidate. Though Jeb Bush is not officially a candidate yet, activities by the PAC are raising eyebrows as it aims to take on some of the responsibilities normally reserved for a formal campaign, such as data gathering...

Is Governor Pence’s RFRA Making the Republican Party Unelectable?

Why is Indiana’s Governor Pence doubling down on regressive social policy with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, when it makes the Republican Party look like “right wing whackos” out of touch with the mainstream? So asks radio host and EPIC TIMES founder Jerry Doyle. Jerry and I agree that a strong two party system is necessary for effective governance. But since President Obama’s last state...

Republicans’ Hillary Bashing is a Mistake

The latest Hillary-bashing from Republicans hungry to win the White House in 2016 is the “Hillary’s Hiding” campaign, anchored by RNC billboards charging that Secretary Clinton is afraid to weigh in on economic and foreign policy issues. Republicans who complain incessantly that Hillary sucks up all the air in the room only to do an about face when she, still a private citizen, shuns the...

Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby Decision May Be a Disaster for Republicans

Last week’s firestorm set off by the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision has brought into sharp focus the problem Republicans have in their outreach to women.  Rather than Utah Senator Mike Lee et al taking a victory lap over Hobby Lobby’s exemption from covering 4 types of contraception that it (wrongly) classifies as abortifacients in its health care plan, what should trouble Conservatives is the...
