Democratic Inquiry OMG Week 1

lease read President Obama’s final farewell email. It has a link to keep getting email updates from him.

Dubbed the anti-inauguration, the Women’s March On Washington was the most successful demonstration since the VietNam war, organized in a short time on the basis of a FaceBook post. The anti-war demonstrations took months of planning and coordination between multiple groups.

The Teacher Wars

I’ve just read a fascinating review of Dana Goldstein’s new book, “The Teacher Wars: A History of America’s Most Embattled Profession.” As we continue to wrestle with issues related to Common Core standards, high-stakes testing, and teacher tenure, this looks like a book we should all add to our reading lists.

Did you know that at the end of the 19th century, 90% of American schoolteachers were men? And that, over the past hundred years or so, that ratio has flipped, with about 75% of teachers …

Romney a National (and International) Disgrace – Part II

Michael Cohen (NY Daily News): Romney’s reprehensible reaction to the violence in Libya and Egypt ….. A couple of days ago, I wrote here at the Rumble that Mitt Romney was one of the worst national politicians I’d ever seen.

I spoke too soon; it’s even worse than I thought. His reaction to the violence in Egypt and Libya over a film mocking the religious beliefs of Muslims is truly one of the most brain-dead political acts that I’ve ever witnessed – and it speaks volumes …

Hypocrite Paul Ryan Quietly Requested Obamacare Cash

Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan is barnstorming the country, promising to repeal every provision of the Affordable Care Act if the Romney-Ryan ticket is elected. But a letter he wrote to the Obama administration may undermine this message.

On December 10, 2010, Ryan penned a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services to recommend a grant application for the Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc to develop a new facility in Racine, Wisconsin, an area within Ryan’s district. “The proposed new facility, the Belle City …

Romney is Really a National (and International Disgrace)

In an interview with Fox News this afternoon (Sept. 7), Mitt Romney shot back at critics who complained that he didn’t mention Afghanistan or praise U.S. troops in his convention speech last week, arguing that he focused on issues that are “important.”

Fox News’s Brett Baier told Romney that “several speakers” at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this week criticized the GOP presidential nominee for the omissions (actually it was right-wing foreign policy leader Bill Kristol who started the attacks) and asked him if he …
