The Invincible Trump

What hasn’t killed Donald Trump has only made him stronger. Right off the bat, there was the shocking statement about the Mexican government sending over immigrant “rapists.” Then came the challenge to John McCain’s war hero status, a low blow from someone who avoided the draft.

In his speech today in New Orleans for the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, President Obama described the storm as a natural event that became a manmade disaster, thanks to a sluggish government response to a city with rampant economic inequality.

Last week, the Texas Supreme Court again had to hold Houston Mayor Annise Parker and her City Council in check for attempting to interfere with their own residents’ ability to get a fair shake at the polls and vote on the city’s divisive “Equal Rights Ordinance.” Hopefully, this judicial intervention will be the last that is needed in this saga.

Clinton awaits Biden's answer on a presidential run, but she could be waiting awhile
Thursday, 27 August 2015 18:17 Written by
As Vice President Joe Biden escalates what could be a prolonged deliberation over whether to run for president, the summer of 2015 is shaping up to be an unsettlingly endless one for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
