Democrats need to be more assertive: He who is unable to dance blames it on the stony yard

Obama back in campaign mode: The chicken that digs for food will not sleep hungry

President Obama has been pushing hard to secure the Democratic Senate and House of Representatives. The Commander-in-Chief has been transformed to a “passenger pigeon.” He has crossed the United States from West to East to revive the soul of the Democratic party. In the Republican stronghoods, especially in the South, there is no hope. We […]

For […]

Republicans shouldn’t be overconfident: Do not laugh at the fallen; you may find slippery roads ahead

GOP Quiet On BP Oil Spill: When a cricket is quiet, it is digging.

Where has the GOP been lately? Strangely, the GOP has been quiet about the BP oil spill. Have they come to the realization that obstructionism is not winning the hearts of the American people? Perhaps, some of it is that American politics are so tied to corporations, which leaves them powerless when a disaster like […]
