Trump will destroy many things, but he won’t destroy the memory of a great president or the wake of hope Obama left behind him.
Democrats are wasting air time playing Nice Guys and praising Sen Jeff Sessions, which is typical Senate behavior and typical of Democrats, for whom reaching across the aisle is a value.
But those times are gone, and they are dealing with a dangerous racist who has been nominated to be the Attorney General.
If you've been feeling vaguely hysterical, what I like to call hysterical-adjacent, at the idea of Donald Trump running the U.S., you're not alone.
The same media that trolled Obamacare for six years, never really grasping that people's lives were on the line, is now telling you that the creation they helped power to the White House is a function of "regular people" being angry at the elites.
How cool would the cool kids feel if they knew they had been duped, that in scoffing about Clinton's scandals they were actually repeating scandals paid for by the folks behind Citizens United.
Hillary Clinton needs to do a press conference because not doing one allows this false equivalency with Donald Trump's assault on the free press to continue, and in no way is Clinton less transparent than Trump. Her whole life has already been vetted and has been lived in the public eye.
Elizabeth Warren is a perfect complement to Hillary Clinton. It's lighting in a bottle special. It's Obama at the DNC in 2004. This is the magic Clinton was missing.
The following is an editorial by PoliticusUSA’s co-publisher Sarah Jones.
Demoralized Democrats are depressed today because they’ve had an entire primary of issue indulgence, with excellent presidential candidates focused on policy and issues that matter deeply to the base. The Democratic primary has truly been a cornucopia of issues, a fact that made a sharp contrast between the Republican cage match of violent extremism and the Democratic primary of wonky debate.
The media keeps playing dumb by asking Democratic candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton if Donald Trump is a racist. This question sets the question up as if it is a matter of debate or personal opinion and is being used to exploit drama for ratings.
Seven years in, one thing has become abundantly clear - this President is on a moral mission. Not all people who run for the highest office of the land actually have an agenda to do good for the people, but it appears as though this President did and does.
President Barack Obama knows this. That is why he hunted down and killed Osama bin Laden. That's not something any person with an ounce of humanity wants to do, no matter what- to kill another human being. But it was necessary.
The major problem with Ben Carson's tendency to embellish memories in a way that glorifies himself is it's best if a world leader is in touch with reality.
Hillary Clinton apologized for a made up email scandal that was blown way out of proportion by the MSM. Now that the DOJ has put that to rest, where is their apology to her?
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is a man who has always advocated for the underdogs, for women, for minorities. And so it's exceptionally ironic and troubling that his campaign is being hijacked by priggish, self-satisfied, angry white progressives.
So to blame Obama for any failure to change the laws is to lash out at one of the few people willing to take on the NRA. That's not helping.
The worst fear of the Koch brothers has always been that people will learn about their activities and fight back. On Face The Nation, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) announced that people are fighting back and his campaign now has more than 200,000 donors.
Our politics are centered on policy, but there is a line that should not be crossed and Senator Ted Cruz has officially crossed it. He is not only not fit to be president, he isn't fit to be a sitting senator.
We were set for a primary where the issues actually get coverage because there would be no mud. That all changed yesterday, when along came former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley.
The reason Republicans have a problem is because they won't denounce the Duggar family's cover up of Josh Duggar's sexual assaults. Former Governor Mike Huckabee has gone full-on defense of the child sexual predator and his family while other Republicans who used the Duggar family as right-wing Christian cred in photo-ops are now silent.
But this time, things were different. Here's what happens when things start to change. Time magazine, one of the most mainstream publications there is, puts "Black Lives Matter" on its cover.
