Hillary Clinton hasn’t stepped into the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries yet and there’s already buzz growing for the ultimate grrl power ticket: Clinton and first lady Michelle Obama.
“All due respect for President Obama and Vice President Biden, but that would truly be a dream team for America,” said former Clinton spokeswoman Karen Finney. “Both women are proven effective leaders who’ve raise children, so dealing with Congress would be a snap!” [...]
Democratic Strategist’s Shocking Claim: Women Don’t Need Guns for Self-Defense, Just Tell Men ‘Not to Rape Women’
Appearing on Fox News Tuesday night, Democratic Strategist Zerlina Maxwell argued that preventing rape should start by simply “telling men not to rape women.” She was arguing against women using guns as a means of self-defense when she made the questionable remarks.
Host Sean Hannity began by slamming the “ignorant politicians” in Colorado for trying [...]
Google Inc. (GOOG) avoided about $2 billion in worldwide income taxes in 2011 by shifting $9.8 billion in revenues into a Bermuda shell company, almost double the total from three years before, filings show.
By legally funneling profits from overseas subsidiaries into Bermuda, which doesn’t have a corporate income tax, Google cut its overall tax rate almost in half. The amount moved to Bermuda is equivalent to about 80 percent of [...]

In a fundraising email sent out by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Democratic strategist James Carville has a serious warning: “We’re gonna have to go through hell and high-water to win this damn thing.” The remedy, according to Carville, is to donate more money to the Democratic group.
“I wish I had good news for you,” Carville begins the pitch. “I want to tell you that President Obama has a second [...]

(CNN) – Let’s imagine that yesterday there was a front page story in The New York Times that read the following:
Top Democratic aides in Clinton administration argue in 16-page paper that Obama needs new strategy to win voters for second term
Key to Obama victory is a new message ‘with minimal discussion of the recovery and jobs created and maximal empathy for challenges people face’
Two former top advisers to Bill Clinton have warned Barack Obama that he will lose to Mitt Romney in November if he does not abandon the ‘fool’s [...]
The Washington Post today digs into voter registration numbers that should leave the Barack Obama campaign a bit worried: among black and Hispanic voters — especially in key states and districts — voter registration is trending sharply down.
Consider these numbers: Registration among Hispanics nationwide is down 5 percent. But even more troubling is in key swing states like New Mexico and Florida, where registration is down 28 and 10 percent, respectively.
The decline in minority [...]
Jimmy Kimmel and President Obama high-fived their performances. But it was anything but a memorable evening of comedy at tonight’s White House Correspondents Dinner, that annual media-politics-showbiz schmoozefest in Washington DC. After three years in a row of telling funny jokes, President Obama flatlined. And ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel didn’t fare any better: he was bland to a fault. They also couldn’t get any laughs out of the [...]
Nearly three-quarters of Americans view Michelle Obama favourably while only 41 per cent see Ann Romney in the same golden glow of positivity.
Seventy one per cent of people viewed the First Lady favourably, 22 per cent said the opposite while 7 per cent had no opinion on the President’s wife, a CNN poll found today.
Ann Romney fared less well with less than half of voters viewing her favourably and 20 [...]
Acting very much like the GOP nominee, Mitt Romney sent a curt message to President Obama today: “Start packing.”
The message, delivered with a chuckle, came in an exclusive interview with “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer who asked the presumptive GOP nominee if he had something to say to the president.
Romney said Obama’s “policies have not helped the American people. They have not helped get jobs, they have not helped raise [...]

Raising children is hard work. And no one is arguing that Ann Romney — who has been the center of attention since Democratic strategist Hillary Rosen contended that she “never worked a day in her life” — or any other stay-at-home mom doesn’t deserve [...]
No one is arguing that raising children isn’t work. Democratic strategist and CAP Action board member Hilary Rosen is a single mother of twins who had to go through the expensive and challenging process of adoption with her then partner Elizabeth Birch. Now, she’s trying to stick up for other mothers who don’t have the luxury of millionaire husbands to help fund their child-rearing duties, and the backlash is getting ugly. Catholic League president Bill [...]
Mitt Romney’s attempt to hone his appeal to female voters hit a snag on Wednesday night amid criticism of his top female advisor – his wife, Ann Romney.
The presidential hopeful’s frequent deference to his wife on women’s economic issues on the stump caught the attention of democratic strategist Hilary Rosen.
Speaking on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, Rosen challenged why the mother-of-five is being looked at as an expert on the subject, [...]
(CNN) - While the Obama administration fights to protect the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, Democratic strategist and CNN contributor James Carville said a Supreme Court overruling may not be such a bad thing for the president, politically.
“I think this will be the best thing that has ever happened to the Democratic Party,” Carville said Tuesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.”
He added: “You know, what the Democrats [...]
On Martin Bashir’s television program this afternoon, Democratic strategist and MSNBC analyst Karen Finney said that Republicans are supporting Herman Cain because of his race:
“One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy,” Finney said. “I think he giving that base a free pass. And [...]
Top economists and financial experts agree that our economy will never recover unless Wall Street fraud is prosecuted. See this and this.
But the government has more or less made it official policy not to prosecute fraud, and instead to do everything necessary to cover up for Wall Street.

In a Republican presidential field where no top-tier candidate offers a flawless resume, the question facing GOP primary voters is whether they can find a diamond in the rough — a standard-bearer who [...]
(Hyper) inflation to the extent of diluting creditor savings isn’t in the play book. Repossession (deflation) has always been in the cards after the wild securitization (inflation).
Let’s put this aside for a moment and consider sales. How do you get someone to agree with your decision? Why, you get them to first initiate an idea so that you are merely agreeing with them. Now, consider [...]
