Romney Would Hand Oil Decisions to the States

“[W]hat Romney seeks to do is roll back 50 years of environmental legislation in the United States,” says Nation magazine defense correspondent Michael T. Klare in a podcast discussion of his new piece “The Race for What’s Left: The Global Scramble for the World’s Last Resources.”

International powers such as Russia have been watching the candidates closely throughout the campaign, as both politicians and experts abroad ponder what to expect from the next four years. Although Obama’s stance is not likely to change much, Romney remains an unknown quantity for the Russians.

If You Succumb to Cynicism, the Regressives Win it All

The Koch brothers, Karl Rove, the rabid Republican right, CEOs and Wall Street titans who want to entrench their privileges and tax advantages – all of them would like nothing better than for every progressive in America to throw in the towel.

Romney’s Cold War Ponzi Scheme

Obama, the naive community organizer, thinks the foreign policy debate is about national security, but Romney, the quintessential vulture capitalist, knows that it’s always been about maximizing profit.

What America Will We Pick?

This election is only tangentially a fight over policy. It is also a fight about meaning and identity—and that’s one reason why voters are so polarized. It’s about who we are and who we aspire to be.

How the Right Wing Lost in 2012

If conservatism were winning, does anyone doubt that Romney would be running as a conservative? Yet unlike Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater, Romney is offering an echo, not a choice. His strategy at the end is to try to sneak into the White House on a chorus of me-too’s.

Obama as Commander-in-Chief, Romney as Banal Bully

The third and last presidential debate was a clear win for the President. He displayed the authority of the nation’s Commander-in-Chief – calm, dignified, and confident. He was assertive without being shrill, clear without being condescending. He explained to a clueless Mitt Romney the way the world actually works.

Democratic Mockpocalypse: How Big Can One Election Get?

For all the trillions of words devoted to campaign 2012, no one even bothers to discuss its size. Americans may be willing to argue copiously about whether New York’s Mayor Bloomberg should control the supersizing of soft drinks in his city, but not a peep is heard when it comes to the supersizing of the run for the presidency.
