Former Republican U.S. Senator from Massachusetts
Scott Brown Extreme Positions On Issues
How difficult is it to remember what state you work in and who your current employer is? My guess is that nearly everyone in this country knows the answer to these two simple questions, but you can add Scott Brown to the list of individuals who has difficulty answering them.
Donald Trump, a rich kid who received five deferments from the Vietnam draft, somehow decided that now was a good time to resurrect his feud with the deceased war hero. Trump has been in a public spat with Senator McCain's daughter in recent days, which culminated in an unhinged rant against McCain's family for not thanking him for giving them the funeral that Senator McCain wanted.
Nobody is talking about one crucial aspect of Ted Cruz's eligibility to become President --whether Ted Cruz ever technically became a citizen in the first place, or that he might have obtained his citizenship much later through the naturalization process.
So Ted Cruz is running for President, and wants to abolish the IRS.Back in the wake of the “IRS Scandal”—that is, when the public became aware that the IRS was selectively targeting nominally conservative or Tea Party-associated groups for tax audits, Cruz’s solution was to eliminate the federal body altogether.
Do you hear that noise? It's the sound of crickets from the birther community after Senator Ted Cruz announced his candidacy for President of the United States. Why, you may ask, should there be any noise from this community over Senator Cruz's eligibility to run for President in 2016? Well, that's because Senator Cruz, unlike President Obama, actually wasn't born in the United States.
Aaron Schock didn't see his Congressional career ending like this. To be fair, no Representative envisions resigning in disgrace amid a mountain of scandals they just can't dig out of, but this is especially so for the young gun from Illinois 18th District who had delusions of grandeur for as long as I can remember.
The Republican Leadership in Congress needs an intervention. There's just no other way to put it. How can a party who proclaims they want to open up their tent and be more welcoming to people who aren't old, white men not foresee the terrible optics of ignoring the 50th Anniversary of one of the worst racial injustices in modern history? I get it.
Who exactly is in charge of American foreign policy? President Obama or Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? Any middle-school aged student would easily be able to answer this, but the Republican Congress seems to think differently.
