It is difficult to ignore the furor over health care reform in the US. America agrees that its health care system is broken, but the American people disagree about how to reform it. There is one America as a nation but two Americas in reality: the poor and the rich. Some Americans believe that they […]

Finally, Minnesota Senator Al Franken was sworn in after a long eight-month legal battle with Senator Norm Coleman. My grandmother would say that Al Franken has removed a nail from the wall with his hands. What a fight! Al Franken’s victory was good news for the Democrats and bad news for the Republicans. Since we […]

CIA director Leon Panetta says it’s almost as if former vice president Dick Cheney would like to see another attack on the United States to prove that he is right in criticizing the Obama administration for abandoning the harsh interrogation of terrorism suspects. It is not shocking news. Rush Limbaugh, a dear friend of Dick […]

Definitely, Dick Cheney is succeeding in shifting the attention to be on him. This week he said that he would choose Rush Limbaugh over Colin Powell. It is Cheney’s right to choose one person over another. The media should at least give him that right. Today Rush Limbaugh repaid his favor to Dick Cheney. The […]

Senator Arlen Spector has left the Republican party. Seen by many as a moderate because of his lack of virulence against Democrats, his defection was not a big surprise. He was not popular among Republicans who saw him as a renegade or simply as sold-out. His move showed his political realism: he cannot win a […]

He who loves a vase loves also what is inside.

I have been listening on the radio to the echoes of the last Dick Cheney interview on CNN. The controversial ex-Vice President declared his love for Rush Limbaugh, giving liberals something else to talk about.

Conservative activists on Saturday named former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney the winner of a poll for best 2012 GOP presidential candidate. Bobby Jindal, the new star of the Republican party, came in second place — but ahead of Sarah Palin. Even though this poll doesn’t mean anything, it shows that the Republican party is still […]

The moon moves slowly, but it gets across the town.

In spite of the attempted blockage by the majority of the GOP of the economic stimulus plan, it has passed the House. The bill is fighting its way out of the Senate to President Barack Obama‘s desk. What humiliation for Rush Limbaugh and his “troops” in Congress and the Senate! It is time for the […]
