When they insult President and Michelle Obama or disrespect the office of President, Republicans insist they are not racists. It is because Barack and Michelle are Democrats, not because they are black. When Republicans act to restrict voting rights, it is not because they are against blacks or women or gays or youth or unions or Latinos, it is because those groups tend to vote Democratic. When Republicans vote to restrict reproductive rights, it is not because they are warring on women, it is because they are pro-life. If men could bear children, then Republicans would restrict their reproductive rights too.

Portion of a fundraising message from Liz Cheney. Just imagine she calls John McCain and Olympia Snowe liberal Republicans.
“Just last week, a shadowy, out-of-state Super PAC launched a dishonest smear campaign to distort my record. Last month, the National Republican Senatorial Committee partnered with my opponent to raise money to try and stop us. This is the same Washington Establishment that endorsed Democrat Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio. Liberal Republican Senators like John McCain and Olympia Snowe have endorsed my opponent. We must be doing something right if these folks are fighting so hard to preserve the status quo.”

Tonight on Hannity, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are promoting the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Ted Cruz labels it the biggest job killer in America. In truth, the biggest job killers in America are the Republicans, particularly the TEA Party Republicans, in Congress who refuse to stimulate the economy enough to fully recover from the Bush Great Recession. Mike and Ted, look in the mirror if you really want to see the biggest job killers in America. Earlier today, I received an email from Mike Lee rescheduling a telephone town hall, apparently so that he could appear on Hannity instead.

I would like to see a different format for some of the debates among the candidates before the November, 2016, election. Assemble a group of either Democratic or Republican candidates for a panel and then assemble a group of reporters to question them. Allow the candidates to question each other and the reporters also. Don’t restrict the questions coming only from the reporters. Let’s see how much the reporters really know about the subject matter they are supposedly experts.

In 2005, I thought that Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton would be the two major party nominees in the presidential contest in 2008. I was wrong on both counts. Those who speculate now about the 2016 election are whistling in the dark. The election is still more than three years away, and three years is a lifetime in presidential politics.
