  3. On Native GroundWHAT Did the 'Fiscal Cliff' Actually Accomplish?Read the original story

    Jan 4, 2013 | American Reporter

    As someone who has been following politics since I've been able to read, I believe that the 2012 presidential campaign will go down into the history books as an perfect example of how an incumbent can win re-election despite all the conventional wisdom that states otherwise. A list of those shibboleths may find value somewhere.

  4. The Transformation of AmericaPart VII: First, to Know; Then, to doRead the original story

    Dec 23, 2012 | American Reporter

    In the overall mechanics of transformative government, attitude is so important! Not just a simplistic "can do" confidence but the simple belief that government might - holy cow! - actually solve or take the lead in solving or confronting a major problem. Many GOP leaders or presidential candidates boasted during the primary campaign about how, on being elected, they would eliminate government departments left and right.

  6. Campaign 2012TOO Close to CallRead the original story

    Nov 6, 2012 | American Reporter

    It would be too facile to say that Hurricane Sandy was Mother Nature's revenge for the silence of Mitt Romney and President Obama on climate change during the presidential debates. Had one of those gentlemen taken our suggestion to address the issue, that might well have been a game-changing factor on Nov. 6. But will this massive, deadly storm that's taken at least t50 lives and has left millions without lights even tonight make a difference in the presidential election? It's too late in the game for both candidates, but if President Obama wins a second term, he would do well to make dealing with climate change as big a priority as health care reform was in his first term.

    Oct 21, 2012 | American Reporter

    In Texas and Oklahoma, ranchers and farmers have joined with activists and Occupy Wall Street alums to try to stop the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline - designed to bring toxic and dangerous tar sands oil from Canada to U.S. refineries. On the stage at Hofstra University on Tuesday night, President Obama and Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney spun fairy tales about "clean" coal and energy independence through more domestic drilling for oil and natural gas.

    Oct 11, 2012 | American Reporter

    I saw the first 2012 presidential debate at the Lakewood Ranch Town Hall here, at a watch party organized by fellow Democrats. We watched and cheered the President and frequently laughed at Mitt Romney, particularly when his statements were given the lie by his videotaped "47%" remarks.

    Sep 3, 2012 | American Reporter

    Mitt Romney's speech to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa was not among the great ones that conventions of both parties have heard in recent decades, but it did accomplish two important things: It enlarged the mental portrait most of us have of this quintessentially corporate man, and it made it seem possible that he could pull this country out of its economic morass. As it stands tonight, here amid the quiet lakes and hills of northern Georgia, I have finally seen with clarity that Mitt Romney's chances of being our next President are excellent.

    On the 225th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the U.S. Senate voted to ratify a bill that will destroy many of our civil liberties. And President Barrack Obama, who quickly signed it, will go down in history as the President who gave the U.S. military the right to detain any citizen deemed as a threat to national security, and do so without due process.

    As a result of some sort of corrupt media consensus, CNN's Anderson Cooper flagrantly orchestrated an attack on Herman Cain at tonight's GOP presidential debate. Cain did well in responding, but CNN's role as a political orchestrator will be suspect from now through the next several debates.
