US Presidential Election


Latino voters and family values

tags: family values, Immigration, Latinos, US presidential election
The growing electoral power of the Latino community in the US concerns more than immigration policy.


Of wars and women

tags: justice, US presidential election, women
The rhetoric of warfare in the US election campaign masks an unjust cause.


Question for President Obama

tags: Barack Obama, Democratic National Convention, The Economist, US presidential election
As The Economist expressed it for everyone else who wants to know: “One question, Mr. President…just what would you do with another four years?”


GOP’s breathless pace

Maybe it was because they’ve waited for years. Maybe it was because it was delayed by the gravity of a treacherous hurricane. But once it kicked off, the Republicans’ convention has been racing through its key messages. Sometimes faster than they can be processed or appreciated.


Works, not faith

Carolyn Moynihan | 24 August 2012 | FEATURES |  
tags: Mitt Romney, Mormons, US presidential election
Mitt Romney’s fitness for the presidency should be judged on his policies and record, not on his Mormon beliefs.


Romney pick defines the campaign

All of a sudden, it seems the media have noticed what the presidential election is actually all about. Ideas. Competing ideas. Two stark contrasts of opposing worldviews and what should be the proper size and role of government. It’s about time.


Presidential candidates accuse each other of lying

tags: fact-checking campaigns, negative campaigning, Obama campaign, Romney campaign, US presidential election
Great. We get calls for civility, the need to inspire Americans to unity and harmony and optimism, and in the next moment charges and counter-charges descending into uncivil and dishonest rancor, unbecoming of a leader (if we can find even one) and leaders (if we’re able to gather two or more).


The 2012 presidential contest

tags: GOP candidates, Ronald Reagan, US presidential election
It’s mid May, 2011. Do you know where your candidate is?
