What role, if any does race play in American politics today? None?
Who is playing the race card, President Obama, African Americans, Hispanics?
Two major issues today—Barack Obama’s executive order and the upcoming US Senate race.
Our inbox today is inundated with emails trying to belittle the competition or put their sides in the best light.
The President cannot be any more provocative with the GOP. After getting shellacked in the mid-terms, Obama did not move to the middle or reach out to Republicans, he moved further to the political left.
President Barack Obama is once again doing no favor for the Mary Landrieu for US Senate campaign. Nor did he help his party during the November elections landslide.
The Louisiana Democratic Party has released a video that compares the record of President Barack Obama and that of Bobby Jindal while linking the Louisiana Governor to the Republican US Senate candidate Bill Cassidy.
Despite his horrible treatment of women, perjury and serious moral lapses, Bill Clinton was a very good politician. He was at heart a liberal Democrat who adjusted his philosophy to the shifting political winds.
The mid-term election should have been a resounding wake-up call to President Obama to change from his liberal agenda and start working with an emboldened Republican Party. On Tuesday, the GOP took over control of the U.S. Senate, expanded its majority in the House and gain governorships in such blue states as Maryland and Illinois.
Louisiana’s race for the United States Senate continues on to December 6th. Senator Mary Landrieu (D) and Congressman Bill Cassidy (R) will meet in a runoff to decide who will serve in Washington for the next six years. Senator Landrieu led the field with 42% of the vote, Congressman Cassidy was next with 41%, and Colonel Rob Maness (R) had 14%. Now the battle begins anew.

Now that the mid-term Congressional elections are behind us, what do the results portend? Republican control of both the House and Senate creates a new situation. Will President Obama respect the Constitution and the will of the people and compromise with Congress? Or will he defy the Constitution and the will of the people and seek to advance his philosophy through an unprecedented expansion of Executive Orders?
Six years ago, Americans were in the midst of their Barack Obama obsession. He was elected to the U.S. Senate and soon thereafter the presidency on mostly his charm, good looks and oratorical ability. Crowds swooned when he spoke, in fact, some fainted. He was more than a President; he was a political rock star. Of course, it helped that he was an African American with a very interesting background. The complaints about his lack of experience or his radical associates did not dent his very favorable rating with the public. The American people viewed Barack Obama as a politically fresh face, a young man on a mission of hope and change. He was seen as someone who would right the wrongs of the past and at the same time offer good government, transparency, a revived economy and an end to wars overseas.
