Republicans are on the verge of unprecedented political power — or an electoral catastrophe

Republicans are on the verge of unprecedented political power — or an electoral catastrophe

The Republican Party is the strongest it has been in decades and could be on the verge of a victory that could give them more electoral power than at any time since 1920, the year women first voted for the president. That’s the conclusion of Sean Trende and David Byler who have put together an index of party strength: You […]

How President Obama can give millions of workers a raise this year

How President Obama can give millions of workers a raise this year

The 2016 election will about two things: The Supreme Court and rebuilding the middle class. We can count on the Roberts Court to remind us over and over that they’re willing to do anything possible to reduce women’s rights and increase corporate power, while making it easier to buy an election than to vote in one. So it’s up to […]

Democrats didn’t give people a reason to vote for Democrats

Democrats didn’t give people a reason to vote for Democrats

Now is the time to talk about how we can actually fix this economy I was wrong. I was wrong. I was wrong. I didn’t think there would be a GOP wave. I especially didn’t think there would be a wave here in Michigan. I knew the map and electorate would be against Democrats, but I always suspected — nay, […]

Mitt Romney endorses David Trott for MI-11. Again.

Mitt Romney endorses David Trott for MI-11. Again.

If it seems like it was just a few weeks ago that Mitt Romney was endorsing millionaire vulture foreclosure specialist David Trott for Michigan’s 11th District, you’re right. But that didn’t stop Romney from swinging through Michigan for a do-over. Yesterday he was back in town to do it again for Trott who was part of Romney’s finance team during […]

The Republicans’ field for 2016 is AWESOME! (And hilarious.)

Oh, hardy har har har…

A recent fundraising email from GOP.com was disguised as a “help us pick our presidential candidate for 2016” poll. The list of candidates shows in vivid detail just how shallow their bench actually is.

Mitt Romney checked: turns out he supports equal pay for women (sorta)

Mitt Romney checked: turns out he supports equal pay for women (sorta)

Sam, we’ll get back to you on that Yesterday, when asked if Mitt Romney supports equal pay for men and women doing the same job, his campaign team didn’t have an answer. They had to check to see if he actually support women’s rights or not. The shocking thing about this is not that they weren’t sure. It’s probably hard […]

Rick Santorum exits stage left

Rick Santorum exits stage left

Missed it by THAT much As of this afternoon, we won’t have Rick Santorum to kick around anymore. He has suspended his campaign which, in politispeak, means he reserves the right to get back in if Romney crashes and burns. It’s a shrewd move because if anyone could crash and burn when he has the advantage, it’s Mitt Romney. So, […]

Santorum campaign protest rally outside Mich GOP HQ for that ONE delegate draws three. People.

The never-ending Clown Show™ As I wrote about yesterday, Rick Santorum is fighting tooth and nail for that one Michigan delegate that they believe was inappropriately awarded to Mitt Romney. So, they staged a protest rally outside the headquarters of the Michigan Republican Party (MRP) headquarters. It drew three. Not three busloads. Not three dozen. Three. People. These Republicans could […]
