Calling wealthy Democrats Citizens United destroys the American notion of citizenship by creating separate and unequal classes of Americans. It creates a de facto American House of Lords in which the wealthiest 10 percent of the wealthiest 1 percent are given unlimited financial power to attempt to buy our democracy in secret, while all other Americans are relegated to second-class citizenship.

Clint Eastwood and Chrysler upset the "Hope America Fails" Republicans What is good for American auto workers is good for President Obama. What is good for America is good for President Obama. The Republicans can't handle the truth, because they are so negative that what is good for America is bad for Republicans!

A tale of two Romneys If George Romney were here today, Mitt Romney would probably be calling him a European socialist, while George Romney would probably be supporting the auto policies of Obama and possibly endorsing Obama for reelection.

How Obama can win big If the president runs as the champion of patriotic capitalism and Made in America jobs and works his heart out to bring the next Morning in America while his opponents act like the "hope America fails" party that has bet its ranch that the American economy fails -- Obama will win, by a knockout.

What do abused dogs and laid-off workers have in common? So: Let's have this debate, based on facts, based on sound economics and business, and based on deep principles of faith and the degree that faith (in my case, the Sermon on the Mount) should have an impact on policy.

Conservatives in crisis As conservatives prepare for an urgent meeting this weekend to discuss their options in the 2012 campaign, they face an epic crisis of identity and electability that creates rising odds for the reelection of President Obama. Throughout the 2012 campaign, there has not been one credible conservative candidate for the presidency.

Ron Paul should apologize for racist newsletter comments; Rick Perry for misusing Christianity in a sleazy ad If Ron Paul wants others to take responsibility for their actions, he should take responsibility for his. Otherwise his credo is the same serial hypocrisy he correctly accuses Newt Gingrich of. For the failed, embarrassing and shameful campaign of Rick Perry and his ads misusing Christianity in a partisan attack on opponents, he should also apologize.

The Norquist Factor There is real danger for Republicans, especially House Republicans, of being trapped by the Norquist pledge into taking absolutist positions that voters view as an aggressive attack against the majority view of the nation.

Occupy Repatriation If job-exporting firms conclude they can use influence-peddling to win a tax break every 7 years, they would export jobs in greater numbers. To promote a jobless American economy, and further destroy the revenue base and fiscal soundness of the nation. If these firms create the jobs first, give them their tax break. If they do not, we should Occupy Repatriation and say to them: Hell, no.

Truman moment for Dems Listening to Republican leaders and watching Republican debates make the GOP today appear to be a party run amok. It denies science, reason, facts and even, at times, the president's birth. They attack and abuse core interests of a majority of voters. Their tactics are often alien to the basic notions of civility, moderation, fair compromise and respect that constitute the American idea.

Elizabeth Warren's Moment As President Obama prepares to offer a modest jobs program to a joint session of a Congress with unpopularity rivaling the disapproval numbers for Casey Anthony, the prospect of a progressive populist patriotic revival is emerging in Massachusetts. Elizabeth Warren, one of the most brilliantly qualified candidates in modern history to be passed over for an important post, appears poised to run for Senate in Mass.

Now Obama must lead Yes, President Obama inherited a mess. But it is unacceptable that in the third year of his presidency he still blames his predecessor and does bus tours to promote jobs programs that do not exist. The president should not be touting free trade deals and a patent bill as his major jobs programs. This is not merely false. It is farce.

Al Gore for president If Gore runs in 2016 he would be the most qualified candidate for the presidency in a century. On the playing field of national politics, Gore is the conscience of the Democratic Party, the soul of what true Democrats stand for, and the fighting spirit that Democrats everywhere hunger for.

Banana Republicans The Banana Republicans oppose the very concept of negotiating in good faith. They have certain views far outside the mainstream of traditional Republicanism, and far outside the mainstream of traditional Americanism, which views our nation as a melting pot of diversity, requiring a coming-together of shared purpose.

July 4 infamy: Republicans try to destroy the American economy The Hope America Fails Republicans are a disgrace as the rest of us celebrate the Fourth of July. It is incredible, amazing and unprecedented that any leader of a major party in Congress could publicly state that his major goal is not to improve the economic lives of Americans, but to destroy a political opponent, while opposing programs to create jobs that Americans desperately want and need.

Ron Paul: Champion of greed, not liberty Dr. Paul means well, but fails to understand that monopoly is not liberty. Oligopoly is not freedom. Ripping off homeowners and borrowers is not liberty or freedom, it is ripping off homeowners and borrowers in a market that is not free when consumers are not given real choices.

Liar Weiner, liars everywhere In the lane at the top of the modern world, crime pays. The criminals do not get prosecuted, they receive bonuses for the crimes. One party lacks the guts to prosecute the crimes. The other party calls the crimes capitalism and lies about opponents, calling them socialists. While both parties seek donations from the criminals who are not prosecuted.

Republicans propose another recession The big problem with Democrats is they don't fight hard enough against Republican policies. I am in the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party. It amazes me, with historical evidence that Republican policies so often cause recession, that some Democrats are so relucant to stand up as Democrats, for Democratic policies.

GOP has an extremist problem Make no mistake, the Republicans have an extremist problem. This is the weakest GOP field in decades. Republicans would be well-advised to say goodbye to the nutcases and stop advocating torture, denying science and trying to destroy Medicare.

Republican Medicare, Republican Socialism, Massive Republican Tax Increase The GOP's attack on Medicare is a textbook case of Republicans clutching the third rail with both hands, escalating the blunders that have cost them dearly in elections before, and alienating the voters with the kind of political theology and extremism that voters do not want and will not tolerate.

The Al Gore Surge Gore is not the cause of the fierce attacks against progressive values or the stirrings of revival among the oft-maligned "progressive base." But he brings to the battle a powerful voice with a history of game-changing initiatives as congressman, senator, vice president, bestselling author, Academy Award winner, and Nobel laureate.

Wisconsin to Washington: GOP declares war against workers This is not a war against deficits, it is a war against collective bargaining, a war against job-creating programs, a war against the very idea of government creating jobs. In many cases this is a war against policies that help women, a war against pay equity for women, a war against new jobs for women and a war against poor women and their daughters and sons.

If Obama names Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic base erupts like a volcano and votes If Obama names Warren, consumers would have the strongest possible friend fighting for them all day, every day, at a time of major consumer rip-offs and disastrous consumer confidence that would be lifted with the Warren selection. The Democratic base is dispirited and tired, but the Warren nomination would rally them beyond the imagination of the most cynical pundits and politicians.

Will Elizabeth Warren be Blago'd by bank lobbyists? Elizabeth Warren is by far the best, strongest and most qualified candidate to lead the new consumer protection agency created by the financial bill. My hope is that President Obama selects her, but if he does not, the reason would be that she was Blagojevich'd by bank lobbyists who would have veto power over their regulators.
