Republicans Need a Strong Debater
In 2012, Mitt Romney was favored to win the election for a brief period of time.

60 Minutes Interview Marks a Terrifying Shift in President Obama
From demonstrating leadership through climate change and the Iran Deal to clear disdain for insinuations that Russian President Vladimir Putin was challenging him, President Obama’s interview with Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes demonstrated the shakiest he’s sounded since the first debate with Mitt Romney.

I’ll thank Trump for saving the GOP once he loses
Since the beginning, I’ve thought of Donald Trump as an egomaniac, a liberal with a handful of conservative views, an incredible entertainer, a manipulative genius, and a childish bully who can’t handle it when he’s popped in the nose.

The last time a brash New Yorker had a double digit lead in September
This is the story of a September before a Presidential election year. It’s the story of a man from New York City who was electrifying crowds with tough talk and a history of success.
