  1. 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.

    Dec 6, 2012 | American Reporter

    In fairness, there has been some remarkable progress over the years, in maturing public attitudes toward minorities, women, gays, and toward the unfortunates in our society. In the 20th Century, the lifespan of Americans has doubled.

    Nov 30, 2012 | American Reporter

    A white Ford F-250 pick-up rumbled through town, a Confederate rebel flag flapping on a pole behind the cab; on the rear bumper were a pro-life and three anti-Obama stickers, the thrust of two of which are not fit for a family newspaper. It wasn't a lone-wolf protest; several cars, trucks, and homes in the area sport the same flags and messages.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act, Vermont is plowing ahead with its efforts to establish a system of single-payer state health care where every resident will eventually be eligible for publicly-funded coverage. The program known as Green Mountain Care is still very much a work in progress and, at best, it will take another five or six years to fully fund and implement this system.

    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.

    I am a believer in dreams, and when I had a waking dream a few days after the S&P downgrade of our national debt of President Obama packing his bags and leaving the White House, I was saddened for him and for my country. But the great thing about dreams, if they are truly predictive, is that they give you time to change the future, and I'm going to try doing that with this advice.

    As the game of political chicken continues in Washington, it looks more and more like the rest of us will be plucked. The Republicans in Congress talk of the need to reduce the deficit, yet completely refuse to raise taxes on the wealthy, or close tax loopholes that benefit the wealthy.

    After significant compromise with the recalcitrant Republicans who want to continue to give tax advantages to the wealthy while cutting significant social programs, President Obama has finally taken a stand on debt ceiling negotiations. However, in labor, wildlife management, and the environment he is still compromising rather than coming out forcefully for principles he and the working class believe.

    While the rest of the nation seemingly rushed headlong off a cliff on Tuesday night and allowed the party that got us into the economic mess we're in back into power, Vermont followed its own political path. Democrats suffered big losses in statehouses and congressional districts around the country, while the party held onto its veto-proof majorities in the Vermont Legislature and elected a progressive Democratic governor.

    Why do conservatives still hate President Franklin D. Roosevelt? Why have three generations of right-wingers attacked his accomplishments? It's because FDR stood up to the most concentrated and vicious attacks by the men he called "economic royalists," and came out on top nearly every time. On the night of Oct. 31, 1936, on the eve of his re-election to a second term, FDR stood in Madison Square Garden in New York and laid down the gauntlet to his enemies.

    Two of the favorites to be Barack Obama's next secretary of defense took themselves out of consideration for the job 48 hours after Chuck Hagel's surprise exit Monday. As of Friday, signs are strong that the President will be unable to attract a top-flight or "name" candidate to fill the Pentagon post for his last two years in the White House.
