Why Republicans should start acting like Reagan

Our economy desperately needs Republicans to put politics aside - and work with President Obama and Democrats to pass a common-sense economic stimulus to put millions of Americans back to work. That doesn't mean Republicans have to act like "socialists" - or spend money like drunken sailors. All it means is that Republicans have to act like Reagan - and show the same respect to the office of the Presidency that Democrats gave Reagan thirty years ago. In other words - they should start acting like the "Party of Reagan" that they claim to be - instead of acting like the "Party of Crashing the Economy to Make Obama a One-Term President."

Are SuperPacs a good way to run a Democracy?

David Selig, Conservative Commentator vs. Thom Hartmann. So, thanks to Citizens United - we're headed for a billion dollar election cycle - or more.
