He’s the Las Vegas of anti-gay equality Here are the facts about the President’s record on gay rights: No President has hired more openly gay or lesbian Americans for high profile positions than Barack Obama. Ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was a historic achievement for equality. By refusing to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, the President makes the constitutional […]Read more ›

Detroit NAACP celebrates its 100-year anniversary with an impressive 57th Annual Fight For Freedom Fund Dinner
Restoring hope for Detroit’s future
It is hard to understate the immensity of this event. Upwards of 6,000 people attended this gala event at the Cobo Center in Detroit. There were five podiums set up, ringing the room, each with a long line of seats for dignitaries stretching out on both sides.
The press conference before the event was attended not only by the award winners but such dignitaries as…Read more ›
Everyday they Swiftboat this President There’s a lot of hubbub about a new ad featuring conservative Navy SEALs. These purported ex-soldiers claim that President Obama is taking too much credit for the historically brave decision he made to go after bin Laden in Pakistan last year. Think Progress has pointed out that this ad has much in common with the […]Read more ›

As I wrote last Thursday, Republican Joe Schwarz, who was being wooed by the Democratic Party to run in Michigan’s 7th Congressional District on their behalf, decided last week NOT to run. This left only Kurt Haskell as the only candidate on the Democratic side and he is “a conspiracy theorist who worries about ‘government overreach’, talks about cutting taxes in the middle of a recession and isn’t a proponent an essential part of the Affordable Care Act.”
Well, on Friday, those of us Democrats in MI-07 got some very good news…Read more ›
Just For Men isn’t just Mitt’s favorite hair product, it’s his campaign slogan I have only one prediction about the rest of 2012: It will be confusing. 827,000 private sector jobs have already been created since January 1, 2012. And apparently, we’re supposed to believe this is bad—compared to the 600,000+ were we losing a month when the President took […]Read more ›
Republican Joe Schwarz declines to run as a Dem against Walberg in MI-07, Haskell only announced candidate
Seriously? There’s not a single legitimate Democrat in MI-07?
Contrary to what I was told by multiple sources last month, Republican Joe Schwarz has decided NOT to run as a Democrat against incumbent Republican Tim Walberg in Michigan’s 7th Congressional District. Schwarz was being recruited by Michigan Democrats to cross over despite his career as a Republican.
What we’re left with is … well … follow me over the jump and down the rabbit hole.Read more ›
