Opinion: Thanks To Clint And Clinton, We Almost Stayed AwakeThe Republican and Democratic National Conventions of 2012 – yawn-per-yawn – have to be the most uninspiring political conventions in recent history.
Opinion: Democrats Take Their Turn With Gaffes And Negative Press At ConventionCommonly referred to as “what goes around, comes around’, the Republicans are finding plenty to take shots at as the Democrats conduct their week in the ‘often dubious’ political spotlight called “the Convention”.
Opinion: Democrats Offer A Positive Vision For The Future At Convention After GOP Offers Only AttacksSitting in the Time Warner Cable Arena last night I was struck by how different the Democratic National Convention was from the Republican event last week. Unlike the Republicans in Tampa, Democrats focused on the fight to preserve the middle class and the American Dream.
Opinion: 2012 Democratic National Convention: Superstar-less And On The DefensiveWhat a difference four horrendous years makes. Thinking back to the Democratic National Convention of 2008 and now seeing what’s going on in Charlotte, North Carolina this week at the Democratic National Convention of 2012 shows stark differences. The Democrats have no star power and pale in comparison to the Republicans' star-packed convention in Tampa.
Opinion: Famous People Should Keep Their Mouths Shut During Political ConventionsIt is strange that famous people think the world gives a hoot about their political views. Last week, a good number of famed and fortuned people spoke their anti-Republican and anti-Romney prejudiced-minds regarding the Republican National Convention.
Opinion: Empty Chair Day 2012 and #EastwoodingInstead of getting rowdy at a demonstration or protest regarding the lack of jobs throughout the country, people can voice their discontent with the nation’s current unemployment rate on this Labor Day by simply placing an empty chair in their front yard.
Opinion: Clint Eastwood Made My DayLast night, Clint Eastwood produced the most bizarre and uncomfortable moments in modern convention history. If Mitt Romney cannot get his campaign right.

Opinion: Paul Ryan And His Little White LiesWhile Paul Ryan is entitled to his own opinions, he is not entitled to his own facts. He lied to America about Medicare. He lied to America about the debt commission. He really lied to America about the stimulus and America's debt rating.
Opinion: Ann Romney's RNC Speech Helps Mitt’s ImageThe speech gave much of what Ann and Mitt Romney have been trying to reveal about themselves throughout the misleading negative campaigning of 2012 which has put them on some imaginary pedestal due to Mitt Romney’s business success and extreme wealth. They, too, like most American families, have obviously experienced life’s uncertain challenges intertwined with their successes.

Opinion: As Hurricane Isaac Threatens The GOP Continues To PartyAs Hurricane Isaac threatens the Gulf again, we will see if Katrina and Isaac serve as bookends of GOP hostility to federal disaster relief.

Opinion: Ron Paul’s Legacy Deserves Better Than '2012 Spoiler'Ron Paul’s impact on the future of America and how the nation remembers his involvement with the GOP presidential campaign process of 2012 is his and his alone.
