Mayday! Mayday! Watch out! There is a “fiscal cliff!” We’re headed straight for it! It will be the ruin of all America! Just as soon as the 2012 presidential election was over, media outlets had a huge vacuum to fill and nothing to fill it with, at least that’s what I have to assume since [...]
There are always hurt feelings after big elections. People on both sides are invested in their views and candidates, especially in our world of 24/7 media that whips us all into a frenzy so that we can hardly see straight when it’s all over. But no one likes a sore loser. And some high profile [...]
It’s not a surprise that Mitt Romney will not win his “home” state of Massachusetts. He was the last of a long string of Republican governors here who took the job with an eye on the next big thing. Like those before him, he started out as a relative moderate and gradually sharpened his [...]
There may be a big election in a few days, but here in the parts of New Jersey, New York and other areas that fell victim to the worst of Hurricane Sandy’s wrath, I’m not sure quite as many people remember or care. As President Obama and Mitt Romney continue on the campaign trail, stumping [...]

Ever since Bill Clinton famously donned some cool shades and riffed on his saxophone during his presidential campaign, the power of candidates using non-traditional campaign outlets has been clear. Want to woo young voters? Slow jam with Jimmy Fallon. Want to win suburban women? Hang out with the ladies of The View or have the [...]
I’m a swing voter, early voting has already started, and I’m not yet sure who I’m going to vote for. In a previous post, I’m a Swing Voter: I’m Older, Wiser and Resent Baby Boomers I shared that I’ve been a Democrat since I was 18 and had the privilege of voting for Bill Clinton. I’ve since [...]
Is Barack Obama an iPhone man or a Blackberry kind of guy? Does Mitt Romney like to “tweet” or is he more about “friending?” Image says everything. That’s a mantra not only worshipped in marketing and advertising, but these days, in politics as well. So what images do our presidential candidates, Barack Obama and Mitt [...]
