Politics: Romney’s dangerous ‘More enemies, less friends’ foreign policy

Ahead of tonight’s third and final presidential debate, which happens to focus on foreign policy, I turn to journalist Ari Berman’s article ‘Mitt Romney’s Neocon War Cabinet’ to show how Romney may go about positioning the U.S. on the world stage. ‘If we take the candidate at his word, a Romney presidency would move toward…… Continue reading Politics: Romney’s dangerous ‘More enemies, less friends’ foreign policy

Round 2 of Obama vs. Romney, just as I predicted

In this post from yesterday, I provided a glimpse into what you could expect in Round 2 of the Obama vs. Romney debates.  One of the reasons why I wrote that post was due to my confidence in knowing what the issues would be and how Obama and Romney were going to handle themselves. And…… Continue reading Round 2 of Obama vs. Romney, just as I predicted

What to expect in Round 2 of Obama vs. Romney debate

What Obama has to do to win: He needs to appear aggressive and attack Romney and his winner-take-all society. He needs to have energy, confidence, and that twinkle in his eye. He needs to specifically hit Romney on his 47% comments. He also needs to specifically hit Romney on his activities at Bain Capital. He needs…… Continue reading What to expect in Round 2 of Obama vs. Romney debate

Politics: Naomi Wolf on when Romney killed the ‘American Dream’

Naomi Wolf writes a piece in the Guardian in response to Mitt Romney’s historic ‘47%’ comments.  I’ve included a few excerpts: What Romney’s comments reveal is that the American Dream is dead, killed off by skepticism from the bottom up – by the 99% of lower-income and middle-class people who no longer believe in it…… Continue reading Politics: Naomi Wolf on when Romney killed the ‘American Dream’

Politics: What Massachusetts knows about Romney’s ‘business experience’

Many people who are from or have lived in Massachusetts know that Romney, while Governor, led a state which was near the bottom of the national list for JOB GROWTH. During his administration, he also piled up more DEBT per person than any other state and CUT taxes for millionaires. Romney’s track record in no…… Continue reading Politics: What Massachusetts knows about Romney’s ‘business experience’

Weak Economy Means an Inferior Culture?

In a nut-shell, Mitt Romney insinuated on his recent visit to Jerusalem that Israel’s economy performs well because Israeli society has a superior culture.  Inevitably, Romney also hinted that the Palestinian economy does not perform well because Palestinian society lacks ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’, thus making Palestinian culture ‘inferior’. Romney’s ‘logic’, therefore, suggests that a strong…… Continue reading Weak Economy Means an Inferior Culture?

Politics: What Romney said behind closed doors in Jerusalem

Dear my Israeli donor friends, I have some ideas.  Don’t tell ANYONE what I’m about to propose. Donate $10 million to my campaign and the US will strike Iranian nuclear sites with missiles by February 2013. Of course that’s if I’m elected President. Donate $40 million to my campaign and the US will invade Iran…… Continue reading Politics: What Romney said behind closed doors in Jerusalem

Time to Go Green in American elections

I have actually never voted in an American election, whether it be local, state, or national.  I am not even registered to vote, but this is not stopping me from commenting on the state of American democracy and the 2012 elections. Democrats and Republicans: Two ‘different’ parties with essentially the same fundamental principles and entities…… Continue reading Time to Go Green in American elections

10 reasons why Romney chooses Rubio

There’s an obvious variable here – would Rubio even accept the invitation to be Romney’s running mate?  Reports are already suggesting he wants no part, but it’s hard to imagine he’d pass it up (but you never know).  Either way, Romney wanting Rubio to serve as his running mate makes sense for a number of reasons,…… Continue reading 10 reasons why Romney chooses Rubio
