Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are Running on the Same Ticket

Reading Time: 3 minutes Gore Vidal once quipped that there is only one party in the United States, “The Property Party…and it has two right wings.” Thus is the state of the 2016 campaign over the last 96 hours. Hillary Clinton ‘relaunched‘ her campaign on Roosevelt Island over the weekend and Jeb Bush, finally, declared his candidacy. While these Read More

Is Jeb Bush speaking for Obama? Or is Obama speaking for Jeb Bush? 

Reading Time: 2 minutes Jeb Bush and President Obama are both in Germany this weekend. Unsurprisingly, they both spoke about Russian President Vladimir Putin. Surprisingly, they both sounded a lot alike. What Jeb said: “There are things that we could do given the scale of our military to send a strong signal that we’re on the side of Poland, Read More

Scott Walker and the League of Small-Government Gentlemen

Reading Time: 2 minutes “Who do we want? Scott Walker! Why do we want him? Because we’ve filled his coffers in exchange for small government initiatives!” – say the Koch brothers, Bradley Foundation, and many others. OK, they didn’t actually say that, but they have poured money into small-government think tanks that have, you guessed it, supported small-government Wisconsin Read More

Jeb Bush: Keep the Muzzle On

Reading Time: 2 minutes Jeb Bush is heading to Europe this week. For other 2016 hopefuls, campaigning across the pond has caused some headaches. Chris Christie and Scott Walker both found out the hard way that a trip overseas is not a walk in the park. So how is Jeb Bush, who is plagued by a family legacy of Read More

Scott Walker, Professor of Education

Reading Time: 3 minutes Conservatives and Republicans supposedly love Scott Walker. Why? Because he is Union busting? Maybe, but recent data suggest that Unions aren’t as unpopular as they seem. Maybe it is down-home history (i.e. wearing Kohl’s sweaters), appeals against big government, and survival against a massive Democratic-led recall. These things can be very popular for a prospective Read More

Lindsey Graham thinks Kim Jong-un is easier to talk to than Hillary Clinton.

Reading Time: < 1 minute “Well, it’s easier to talk to the North Korean guy than it is her” Lindsey Graham is making our job easy. At least our job of comparing his far-Right rhetoric to the far-Left views of Bernie Sanders. However, as publications like The L.A. Times and others have pointed out, Bernie Sanders socialist views are quite popular. At the Read More

Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio — Friends Forever, Momentary Enemies 

Reading Time: 2 minutes A subtle jab carrying Marco Rubio’s 2016 campaign is that he is ‘new’ and other candidates in the race are ‘outdated’. Well Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are certainly getting on in years, yes. However, they are not Rubio’s immediate opponents. That can only mean Rubio’s dig is meant for someone in his own party. Namely Read More

Another Secret Revealed from Camp Hillary Clinton 

Reading Time: 2 minutes Progressives are skeptical of a Wall Street-backed war hawk running for the Democratic nomination? No way! This is the unfunny irony plaguing the Clinton campaign. Hillary’s Super PAC director David Brock seems to have taken note of the hesitancy voiced by Progressives. And by Progressives, we (and he) mean rich liberal donors. Ahead of an Read More

Rand Paul and Political Rand-standing

Reading Time: < 1 minute Rand Paul is, as John McCain once labeled him, a ‘whacko-bird’. No, it’s not because of his opposition to NSA. That actually has a lot of bipartisan and populist support. And no, it’s not because many Republican leaders think he should be running as a Democrat. What makes Paul a whacko-bird is his views on Read More

Martin O’Malley has a Race and Police problem.

Reading Time: < 1 minute Martin O’Malley is in a tough spot. On one hand, he is far (faaaaar) behind Hillary Clinton. On the other hand, he doesn’t have the Progressive support (or revolutionary zeal) that Bernie Sanders has. And, worst of all, he is getting partial blame for the death of Baltimore’s Freddie Gray. So much so that a group Read More
