Donald Trump Says He Would Have Beaten Obama in 2012 Elections

LOL: I must admit, Donald Trump saying he would have beaten President Obama in the 2012 presidential campaign is a funny as Sen. Joni Ernst’ bread-bag story. He said he was leading in every poll.

Mitt Romney’s 2016 Presidential Platform: Eradicating US of Poverty

Twice failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney is gearing up for a third run for the White House. His new platform is to eradicate poverty in the U.S. Um, one problem. The stench of his 47 percent insult, his offshore accounts and Bain Capital’s outsourcing activities are still very pungent. I might also add, the binders full of women PR blunder, plus picking on Big Bird, are still very fresh in the minds of many. Romney for...

SMH: Mississippi pastor Edward James dressed a horse in a wedding dress and stood outside the federal courthouse to protest same sex marriage. Um, I didn’t realize a horse can consent to marriage in the same way as a gay or straight couple. WJTV reports Pastor James, of Bertha Chapel Missionary Baptist Church of Charlotte, thought of this ridiculous scheme all by himself in response to a federal decision to lift the ban on...

Democratic Midterm Nightmare: Is It Time for Black Voters to Form New Alliances?

The Democratic Party got a well-deserved spanking in the midterm elections. There is no other way to say it, but it was self-inflicted on many levels. Still, the Republican Party cannot coddle right wing extremists and do nothing for the next two years. It won’t bode well for them in 2016. I won’t lie, I was stunned. Very stunned. I didn’t expect a clean sweep last night. President Obama got a heckuva reality check....
