We’re still screwed


To everyone on social media who thanked "god" for the Obama win: next time, please pray for a president who isn't bankrolled by the likes of Goldman Sachs, who respects civil liberties, and who doesn't indiscriminately bomb civilians.

Rewarding inefficiency

One Cent’s Worth
As Obama barnstorms swing-state college campuses, he's making affordability of higher education the centerpiece of efforts to cast himself as wonkish hipster against Mitt Romney's rich, out-of-touch white guy.

Next week’s Republican convention offers Mitt Romney a chance to get the voting public to like him — but he might as well not bother

Love me not
Heading into his party's nominating convention, Mitt Romney faces a problem similar to one that confronted Bill Clinton in the summer of 1992: a lot of people don't like him.

Olympic fever; Mittpicking; farewell, Johnny Connell

The Sporting Life
The 72-inch widescreen TV has been on 24/7 in the Boom Boom Room as Phillipe and Jorge — clad in togas, with laurel crowns on our heads, and faux medals made from the tops of yogurt containers around our necks — have paid rapt attention to the London Olympics, with occasional naps when the USA basketball team games are shown.

Romney’s Shadow Years

Mitt wants to make his departure for the Olympics a clean break from his business life — but it’s not that simple
With just six weeks to go before the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney's campaign has bogged down over the seemingly insignificant minutia of how to precisely define the leave of absence he took from Bain Capital, while he ran the Winter Olympics from 1999 to 2002.

Why Elizabeth Warren is right — and why Romney won’t change

Bankers and bullies
Like an alcoholic downing nips on the drive home from court-ordered rehabilitation, JPMorgan Chase and its CEO, Jamie Dimon, could hardly wait to once again start wildly tossing depositors' money into derivative hedge bets — the very type of irresponsible behavior that nearly brought down all of Wall Street less than four years ago.
