    BRADENTON, Fla., Feb. 22, 2012 Updated 7:30pm ET -- The stage is set tonight in Mesa, Ariz., for mistakes that make political history. Will the candidates come through? The 20th GOP presidential debate kicks off at 8pm Eastern, 8pm Central time, on CNN, and all four candidates - who have canceled out of two other debates and have just one more to go, on March 19 - are salivating at the chance one or more of their rivals will say or do something that dramatically shifts the outcome of the race for the Republican nomination in August.

    15 hrs ago | American Reporter

    Last week's presidential debate was supposed to cover foreign policy issues, but the ongoing market meltdown was too big to ignore. Just the same, when the debate turned to global matters, John McCain and Barack Obama responses were merely a reinforcement of the conventional wisdom.

    When you're working up a good head of steam, words pour out in self-righteous anger and columns almost write themselves. It started out as one, because I spent most of last week in a state of horror, anger and disgust over the way presidential candidate John McCain was running his campaign.

    Wednesday Dec 17 | Boston Herald

    For decades, the politics of Cuba in Florida were simple: anything less than a hard line stance against Fidel Castro was a sure way to lose a race for office. President Barack Obama's surprise decision this week to restore diplomatic relations with the communist nation is the surest sign yet that his is no longer certain.

    May 16, 2013 | American Reporter

    It would stand to reason that if you won a presidential election by a solid margin campaigning against cutting Social Security and Medicare - something that has wide support among Americans - that you wouldn't make that the cornerstone of the first budget proposal of your second term. Given his record of compromising with Republicans before negotiations ever begin, this not a shock.

    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.

    Nov 29, 2012 | American Reporter

    The majority of the electorate made it clear in the 45th presidential election that they want neither a king nor watered-down half-measures that pass for progress, nor more of the same Congressional obstructionism that marked President Barack Obama's first Administration, but instead seek a genuine transformation of America that is peaceful, constructive and consistent with our constitutional values and heritage. You can kick a can down the road for so long before it gets boring.
