Republicans vs Democrats: How Each Party Views the Role of Science

As Florida, one of America’s hubs for scientific exploration through NASA, goes to the polls today to decide on their choice for the GOP candidate, let’s take a look at how each party as well as Independents view science. In this graphic by AssayDepot, we learn some things that most assume but there are surprises in there as well. For …

Dear Rick Santorum Voters in Florida: Make Your Vote Count

The future of the country is at stake and right now, going into Tuesday’s Florida Primary, our fate is tied into one specific group of people: Rick Santorum supporters. Mitt Romney appears poised to take Florida and go into February with likely sweeps of all states that month. The election is made or broken on Tuesday. Rick Santorum, as strong …

Remembering Mitt Romney’s Flips and Flops

The fate of the country rests in Florida and will be determined Tuesday. It appears that Floridians are leaning towards Mitt Romney. This would be a huge mistake. Lest we forget, Mitt Romney cannot beat Barack Obama. The Republican Establishment appears dead-set to put another Dole/McCain moderate on the fast-track to face Obama because they simply do not understand how …

Santorum is Strengthening Obama’s Chances for Re-Election

Read the conservative response (which sort of agrees with me!) in this open letter to Rick Santorum. The only candidate who truly scares me is looking more and more likely to lose the Florida primary and therefore the GOP candidacy thanks in part to Rick Santorum. Despite Mitt Romney’s strong poll numbers against Obama, it’s easy to see that he …

The Drudge Report is Doing Whatever it can to Give Obama a Second Term

For a “conservative” news aggregator, the Drudge Report is doing its best impersonation of a liberal mainstream media opinion-sculptor as the clear lean towards the “Republican Establishment Candidacy” of Mitt Romney. This goes against the what the largest chunk of Republican voters want and it’s only one piece of the anti-Newt puzzle. What is it about Romney that makes so …

Gingrich Win in South Carolina Makes Florida the “Tie Breaker”

Ronald Reagan was the last nominee to lose in South Carolina. Every candidate since has won South Carolina and either Iowa or New Hampshire, which makes this a special year that pushes the nomination process further than most expected just a week ago when everyone other than the nominees and their supporters were proclaiming Romney the nominee-in-waiting. Florida now becomes …

Bill Clinton is the Best Thing that Happened to the Gingrich Campaign

Two decades ago, Newt Gingrich would be unelectable. He has already been involved in scandals while in Washington and he’s demonstrated multiple challenges with his personal life that would have precluded him from being a viable candidate, let alone someone who is well-positioned to be the Republican nominee for President in 2012. His ability to run, to stay at the …

SOPA: Proof that the Republican Candidates are Either Dumb or Bought (or both)

Wednesday was a big day. It marked the first true convergence of political action and the internet in America. As millions of people learned about SOPA/PIPA after visiting Google, Wikipedia, Reddit, or any of the sites that went dark in protest of the internet censorship bills, none of the Republican candidates other than Ron Paul used the opportunity to denounce …
