“Did you see the photo of the president shaking hands with Castro? Oh, I meant the photo of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Fidel Castro. He put the five-finger grip on Mao Tse-tung, too. Their records on human rights are pretty well known, but somehow the Republicans have a bad case of memory loss about those photos. McCain slipped Muammar Gaddafi ‘five’ also, but he seems to have forgotten that while taking Pres. Obama to task for his greeting to Raul Castro.”

“Paul Ryan told so many lies in his speech at the Republican National Convention, he’s going to make Richard Nixon eligible for Saint-hood. Mitt Romney cant tell the truth either. He’s telling Americans that they aren’t any better off than they were four years ago. Excuse me!? The American executives at AIG, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Exxon Mobil are much better off than they were four years ago thanks to President Obama, and the grueling hours put in by the GOP in congress. Who says they can’t work together?”
We’re hastily approaching the countdown to both political parties’ National Conventions. The Republicans will meet in Tampa, Fla. on Aug. 27-30 and the Democrats gather on Sept. 3-6 in Charlotte, N.C.

How many Americans can name the religious affiliations of Presidents Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George Bush (take your pick of Georges)? How about President Barack Obama?
Reports suggest New Hampshire voters haven’t focused on the national politics invading their state yet, and it’s hard to understand why. Republican Presidential nomination hopefuls are visiting here as dutifully, hungrily and reverentially as Republican politicos at a private Koch Brothers seminar.
