WASHINGTON — Congressional approval ratings hover at historic lows. The Republican Party’s brand has tanked. More people than ever think their own congressman should be sent packing.

How Many People Have Signed Up for Obamacare? Less than 50,000

Read More

President Obama needs to do serious damage control on his Obamacare website debacle.  The nation has over 300 million people, and just 50,000 of them have signed up for the program, at least on the government website.  This is in comparison to the millions they’d expected to have by now.  How could things have gone this wrong?  This might be one of the biggest embarrassments of his presidency.  What do…

Even Barbara Walters Supports Obama on CA Attorney General Controversy

Read More

By Nomalanga Mhlauli-Moses I just watched a short segment on the popular ABC daytime show “The View”, in which the panel of women discussed the controversy surrounding President Obama’s comments about California Attorney General, Kamala Harris. The President got very negative feedback after he called Harris “the best-looking Attorney General”. When the topic was brought up on “The View”, the first person on the panel to respond was Whoopie Golderberg…

The curse of ‘college for all’

Read More

      It’s not only where you start but where you finish. My favorite part of President Obama’s State of the Union address last week was not about early education but what happens later. Obama said to the nation, “Let’s make sure that a high school diploma puts our kids on the path to a good job. Right now, countries like Germany focus on graduating their high school students with…

Read More

Donald Trump took to Twitter this week to express his disappointment over the fiscal cliff deal that the Republicans made with President Obama and the Democrats.   It’s not as if anyone pays much attention to Trump these days, but he does have a lot of Twitter followers, which he might consider to be a source of his ever-dwindling political power.

You don’t see the president crying very often, but there’s a first time for every time.  President Obama broke down during a speech to supporters, crying as he reminisced about his days as a community organizer. President Obama was crying. Not choked up, not somewhat emotional. He was crying. It was a startling sight — after years of watching the man known for his coolness under pressure, for his analytic detachment —…

Madonna Gets Booed for Discussing the Election on Stage

Read More

Madonna is a huge fan of President Obama.  You have to admire a person who is willing to lose fans and make people angry for speaking out about her political views.  But some people think that it’s too much and that people really need to chill out.  But in her home city of Detroit, it got a little it ugly.   The state of Michigan was pretty divided between Obama…
