Lowlights from last night’s debate in Las Vegas

There’s no other way to put it: last night’s Republican debate in Las Vegas was a complete disaster. At no point did we hear any of the presidential hopefuls substantively discuss how they would move our country forward; instead, Donald Trump set the tone and the agenda, and everyone else followed, proving they’re now in way over their heads and…

Republican presidential candidates offered a stark contrast to the substantive Democratic debate as they continued to make news and take heat for the vitriol, invective, and outdated…

Six Days to Republican-Forced Shutdown

We are six days away from a Republican-forced government shutdown cheered on by the Republican candidates for president – this time all to take health care access away from women. Ted Cruz promised to “lead the fight” to shut down the government in order to defund Planned Parenthood. Donald Trump thinks that Congress should shut down the government over Planned Parenthood. Jeb Bush endorsed the strategy that could shut down the federal…

Taking foreign policy cues from Palin, Cheney & Glenn Beck?

Yesterday, the Obama Administration secured enough votes in the U.S. Senate to ensure a historic agreement that blocks Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. After months of painstaking multilateral negotiations to forge a historic nuclear deal, Republicans responded with their usual tactics: childish political stunts, extreme and hateful rhetoric, and a complete abandonment of the facts. Many Republicans in Congress…

Huckabee Joins GOP Attack On Birthright Citizenship

Another Republican presidential candidate bites the Latino outreach dust. Today, Mike Huckabee joins Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Rick Santorum, Donald Trump, Ben Carson, JohnKasich, and Lindsey Graham among the dubious ranks of GOP presidential candidates who have at one point or another attacked citizenship of children born to immigrant parents.  Like Jeb Bush, Huckabee blames Asian immigrants before…

The GOP Needs a Lesson on Women’s Equality Day

Today the Democratic Party is celebrating Women’s Equality Day. Ninety five years ago today, women won the right to vote, guaranteeing them one of the most basic rights available to an American citizen. While Democrats are fighting to protect women’s rights every day, it occurs to us that the GOP presidential candidates are in serious need of a lesson on…

This evening, President Obama will speak at the National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas.

Another Week in Review for the GOP 2016 field

Another week for the GOP potential presidential field, and another week of struggles. Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid—a huge milestone that Democrats proudly celebrated—and so, it was important to remind the American people what the 2016 GOPers have had to say about both programs (hint, hint: it’s nothing good). Jeb Bush, for instance, recently said that…
