Republican Attacks on Medicare, Reagan Warns Against Socialism!

Lawrence O’Donnell observes that Republican candidates didn’t learn shameless hyperbole from Donald Trump; it was Ronald Reagan who taught the GOP to scare voters with  fact-free, sincerely presented but false predictions beginning in 1961. This is significant in part, because we have just passed the 50th anniversary of signing Medicare into law. As you’ll see,the…

I Agree With Ted Cruz! Michelle Obama in Saudi Arabia

History was made today when Texas Republican crazy Ted Cruz said something about Michelle Obama in Saudi Arabia, and we all agreed with him.

Ann Exposes Romneymen As Chickenhawks. Lawrence O’Donnell Challenges Tagg Romney To A Fight!

This is such a hoot, particularly in view of Mitt’s cancellation on The View today. He preferred instead to send in the ‘big guns’ Ann Romney, to deal with “Sharp-tongued, not conservative Whoopi Goldberg.” An extremely polite Whoopi (whose tongue was not sharpened) gently quizzed Ann about the Romneymen’s ‘service’ to this country – or…
