Impeachment is the final fantasy for obsessive hyper-partisans. But some Democrats are exploiting the craziness as a fundraising call to arms. Silly season has started--and both parties are trying to fund-raise off the fringe.
Right Wing's Worst Nightmare: The Master Stroke That Turns Red States Blue
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Elizabeth Warren, Americans, 2016, republicans, democrats, government, politics, elections, candidates, economy )

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Presidents, worst, best, inhumane, interesting, politics, government, ethics, republicans, democrats )

Carrie
- 25 days ago - alternet.org
For all the gravity with which the presidency is written about, assessments of presidents are often at least partly based on fluff more suitable for Hollywood than Washington. Among the criteria that presidential rankings use are leadership,...

"Of the 4,486 American military deaths in Iraq, 911 were considered "non-combat related," that is, non-accidents, suicides. In some years, more soldiers died by their own hand than in combat. They died of the war, but not in the war. What for?"
'Understanding Hillary': Organized and Inflexible
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: government, politics, elections, Hilary Clinton, democrats, candidates )

Carrie
- 33 days ago - washingtonpost.com
She's terrific at developing and executing a well-defined plan. She's less adept at realizing that a well-defined plan is not working and improvising something new. Single-mindedness is both her greatest strength and greatest flaw.

A day after announcing that he will withdraw virtually all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2016, President Obama went to West Point and tried, for the umpteenth time, to lay out an "Obama doctrine" for American foreign policy.

"This year, Pres. Obama and the Democratic Party noticed the Fight for 15 long enough to propose the not-even-half-measure of raising the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour,but not fight hard enough to prevent Republicans from blocking it."
New York Democrats Begrudgingly Run Andrew Cuomo Again for Governor
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: government, dishonesty, democrats, ethics, politics, news )

Cal
- 65 days ago - vice.com
All the formal procedural requirements for putting Cuomo on the November ballot went forth without incident, leaving precious little room for drama or intrigue. What was the point, then, of trekking out to some nondescript Long Island hotel

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Minimum Wage, Livable Wage, President, Obama, Democrats, Republicans, toxic capitalism, exploitation, wealth inequality, poverty, empty rhetoric, idle promises )

Brian
- 83 days ago - socialistworker.org
"The failure of a Democratic proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour played out like a tired movie script you've seen a hundred times before."
