Texas GOP Consultant’s Employee Shaun Nowacki’s ‘Boats ‘N Hoes PAC” Shut Down

The Republican Party continues to show how out of touch it is with the majority of Americans. The latest is a political action committee named “Boats and Hoes PAC.” That was until it sparked outrage and the “Boats and Hoes PAC” will now be just a memory. One that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. A Texas political action committee called Boats ‘N Hoes PAC will be just a memory by Thursday, according to the...

Ukraine: Kerry bangs heads but Lavrov gains

Russia’s Vladimir Putin seemed to score a victory at the four-party talks on Ukraine in Geneva today when Secretary of State John Kerry told journalists at a briefing, “Today we didn’t come here to talk about Crimea; today we came here to get something done to reduce the violence” in Ukraine.

Jeb Bush’s optimism school

NEW YORK — The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The party’s hope deficit helps explain why there’s a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word “love” in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesn’t...
