My Stuttering Mind

My Stuttering Mind

I have not posted in about a month. The reason escaped me for the weeks since, but I think I have finally figured it out. My mind is stuttering. I have been deeply involved in politics for 25 years now. Most of that time on the radio, but certainly as an activist, a surrogate for many candidates, and a guest […]

Trump has been calling himself “President of the United States of America” for a year now on election filings

A new piece out in Vanity Fair contains a buried lede that should easily have been the headline. In filings over the past year with the Federal Elections Commission, Donald Trump refers to himself as “President of the United States of America”.

What Melania Trump’s plagiarism of Michelle Obama tells us about Trump’s hypocrisy

By now you’ve probably read about Donald Trump’s wife Melania and the speech she gave at the National Republican Convention last night.

You could fill the entire GOP Convention speaker schedule with people refusing to appear. The Clinton campaign did!

The list of speakers appearing on stage at the Republican National Convention this week has finally been announced (HERE) and it’s chock-full of people you have probably never heard of. It’s also chock-full of people who are Trump family members (five of them!), Trump employees, or celebrity heartthrobs of the tea party/anti-Obama/anti-Clinton persuasion. The number of people who have declined […]

It’s time to tear the GOP apart — and possibly take the House

It’s time to tear the GOP apart — and possibly take the House

Why Democrats must force Trump to take a stand on Ryan’s plan to end Medicare and raise the retirement age In retrospect, Mitt Romney did a couple of very smart things in 2012. He junked a dopey video Donald Trump made for the GOP convention and he hid Paul Ryan during the last weeks of the election. Donald Trump in […]

FLASHBACK VIDEO – Trump on undocumented Mexican workers: “They’re great workers… great, wonderful people”

FLASHBACK VIDEO – Trump on undocumented Mexican workers: “They’re great workers… great, wonderful people”

An anonymous Eclectablog reader pointed me to this video from 2010 of Donald Trump talking to Larry King about undocumented Mexican workers working in this country. In a sharp contrast to his more odious 2016 campaign trail rhetoric about Mexicans being murderers and rapists and the need to build a giant wall along the Mexican border that we’ll make Mexico […]
