Did Ron Paul’s Supporters Hijack An msnbc Poll?

He’s winning with 57.7% of the votes so far, with second place going to Romney with 14.3% so far. That’s a 43.4% difference.

‘Pass This Jobs Bill.’ Obama Delivers Pitch-Perfect Speech on American Jobs Act

(Video and Best Quotes.) If you were looking for the President to devise an intelligent plan to create immediate jobs and deliver it with coherent, powerful rhetoric and a dogged defense of liberal ideals, Obama hit a home run. The oration of his Sept. 8 Joint Session on jobs creation was on point. The urgent message to Congress was clear and repetitive and it wasn’t so much a request as an expertly articulated demand:

Will the US Be the Next Israel?

Will the US Be the Next Israel?

Last Saturday, nearly half a million people took to the streets of Israel to protest the country’s increasing economic inequities. Over 5% of the small country’s population flooded Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other towns and cities to rally against low wages, the rising cost of food, housing, transportation and education.

Rick Perry’s ‘Galileo Moment’

Rick Perry’s ‘Galileo Moment’

Rick Perry sure had a lot to say during the GOP Debate on Wednesday night. He called Social Security ‘a monstrous lie,’ stood proudly by his ‘pro-life’ execution record, and talked about the jobs he created using federal funds. But there was another moment that shouldn’t be overlooked from last night. I have dubbed this, Rick Perry’s ‘Galileo Moment.’

Mitt Romney Strikes Out On The Facts

It seems that Rick Perry has stollen the thunder from dear ole Mitt. Even though he is a complete clone of George W. Bush, there is no doubt that Rick Perry came prepared for the Republican debate hosted by NBC News and Politico. Since Perry is now declared the major conservative and Jon Huntsman has the moderate crown on, Mitt Romney doesn’t know what to do.
