I thought the conservative movement jumped the shark when supporters became teabaggers. But they�ve taken their paranoia to new heights by claiming that President Obama�s pep talk to the nation�s school kids is a way to �indoctrinate� them with his �socialist ideology.� The sad part is that they�ve gotten two local school districts to agree with this lunacy and not air the president�s speec...

President Obama’s holding a town hall meeting in Green Bay right now, taking questions from the crowd. But in his opening remarks, he recommitted to making a “public option” a mandatory part of his health care reform plan. Interestingly, he also deviated from his prepared speech in some important places. I’ll have his comments up on the site as soon as I can type them up. But, in th...

Rally for Obama, counting votes and contributions

Sunday’s standing-room only Organizing for America rally at American Serb Hall helped to galvanize support for President Barack Obama’s broad plans for health care reform. Without getting bogged down in details, the crowd called on members of Congress to support Obama's...

Most of the great advances we remember involve re-imagination and dreams, not merely tweaks and tinkers. The Wright Brothers' plane wasn't a newfangled horse and buggy, Einstein's theories weren't a simple update of old physics, and Edison's creations didn't aspire to make a brighter-burning wax candle.

Obama and Congress seek to balance quality, choice, affordability and access

It’s now or never. President Barack Obama has argued that the country cannot wait any longer for the health care system to be reformed: Congress must act this summer and implement its plan in the coming years. “We need health care reform because it’s central to our economic future..."

Obama outmaneuvers predictable right-wing attacks

Choosing Sonia Sotomayor as his first nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court will allow Barack Obama to prove three important things. As a politician, he is not afraid of a fight. As a constitutional lawyer, he is willing and able to defend his conception of that living document. And as president, he is prepared to brush aside the phony...
