This November, all eyes will be focused on the Senate. The Republicans only need to win six seats to take control from the Democratic majority, one of which happens to be in my beautiful home state of Iowa. Unfortunately, the Iowa race also features one of the nation’s most insane candidates: Republican Joni Ernst.
As part of their voter outreach program, the Republican Party unveiled their latest mascot in a series of commercials last week. Meet Scott Greenberg. It’s nice to see the GOP finally focusing on the one demographic they consistently overlook, the heterosexual white male.
Former GOP presidential hopeful and Libya strategist Herman Cain has come to the realization that the Republican Party may have an issue with race. It wasn’t the series of voting restrictions targeting minorities or the recent tweet from the RNC that declared racism over that bothered Cain, it was the omission of his name on a flier for potential 2016 presidential candidates.
Who does Mitt Romney think he is? Seriously, who is he? Is he the ultra conservative presented to us during the primaries? The conservative moderate during the last debate, or the liberal conservative that participated in an interview with the Des Moines Register earlier this week?
The dust is clearing from the first 2012 presidential debate, which saw Romney playdough himself into a new champion for the poor. In the meantime, President Obama was clearly still reeling from this season’s finale of Breaking Bad.
Does Romney want to win the presidency? It is a valid question after he attempted to use an overseas tragedy for political gain last week and has now insulted and dismissed 47% of the nation’s population.
