The sense of history that accompanies the inauguration of Barack Obama as the nation’s 44th president is particularly keen for John Chiazza of Gilbert.
Mike Reagan: Well, Democrats in Washington did it. They unilaterally passed a $938 billion health care plan that was overwhelmingly disapproved by Americans. But not to worry, the United Nations Health Organization proclaimed our leaders courageous for their actions. I will prefer to call them extinct.
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans on Saturday doomed an effort that would have given hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants a path to legal status if they enrolled in college or joined the military.
WASHINGTON - The Republican-controlled Senate on Tuesday easily defeated a Democratic effort to pressure President Bush to outline a timetable for a phased withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.
The fallout from the Super Tuesday presidential primary contests has Democrats still taking their time to pick between two popular candidates while Republicans are trying to decide if they can embrace the frontrunner from Arizona, who is better known as a maverick than as a party standard bearer.
Wednesday's Republican primary presidential debate at the Mesa Arts Center will be closed to the public, but the city will host a viewing party downtown where thousands can gather to watch the event live.
A lot of Republicans seemed genuinely surprised that they lost, that Mitt Romney was defeated by President Obama, and that Republicans lost seats in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. They actually thought they were going to win!
Ahwatukee Foothills resident Loraine Pellegrino has been given the opportunity of a lifetime. Last month, delegates from the Arizona Republican Party State Convention named her as one of 29 delegates to represent at the August National Republican Convention in Tampa, Fla.
Both after President Obama rolled out his jobs plan and again when he called for deficit reduction, the usual suspects in the Republican Party streamed to the microphones to accuse him of "class warfare" against the rich. Naturally, both our Arizona senators parroted the views of their leaders and corporate masters. Now, perhaps the GOP is expecting the White House and congressional Democrats to issue vociferous denials and run for cover. Don't do it! The time is now to stand tall and declare, "Yes, class warfare is exactly what this is, and we intend to lead our classes into battle!"
Gov. Jan Brewer appointed her third justice Friday to the five-member Arizona Supreme Court, once again, a Republican just like her.
No one in politics has a corner on hypocrisy. It’s just that the people in power have more of a chance to demonstrate theirs. Right now, it’s the Republicans’ turn.

Unofficial results show Russell Pearce is facing his second election defeat in a row — once again to a political newcomer who vowed not to pursue divisive illegal immigration legislation.
If you're a Republican in this state, you ought to be embarrassed. No, not by the governor's recent finger wag - who knows what actually went on there?

WASHINGTON - Judicial nominee Priscilla Owen gets the vote she's been awaiting for more than four years, the most immediate beneficiary of a deal worked out by Senate moderates to avoid a debilitating fight over filibusters.
When will they stop asking Republicans like me about our party’s choice for vice president?
Arizona's legislature is back in session. Before the first week had even finished, hundreds of bills had been "dropped" into the hopper, several which I find telling of the political atmosphere here in Arizona. Unfortunately, several of these bills reflect how our current legislature has lost touch with reason and demonstrate a sense of political entitlement that has and will continue to harm our state. Clearly, they have learned absolutely nothing from the message Arizona voters sent in the 2011 elections.
The letter from Bill Sandry (May 20) blaming the 1999 repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 for the financial meltdown that began in 2007 is another in a long series of Republican/tea party attempts to blame Bill Clinton for the mess created by the failed fiscal policies of George II and the Republican-dominated House and Senate of the 1990s and the first half of this decade.
At the age of 95, her hair full of silver and her mind sharp with political strategy, Jeanne Tirpak of Wickenburg said she came to Joe’s Farm Grill in Gilbert on Monday to see one person and one person only.
Republican Sens. McCain and Flake have become prime examples of why Republicans are suffering from the “why bother” syndrome when it comes to voting and reason for the GOP going down the tubes. We elect them to represent ‘we the people’ and our principles and what do they do? ‘Turn-tail’ and take the most lucrative way out. Back to ‘what’s good for me’, not for the U. S. of A.
It is perplexing to know that Mitt Romney is still out there doing enormous damage to his party. He surfaced in a video interview last week and proved again why he is not the president. At one time he took the losing teapublican approach to immigration. Next, he claimed the party has to do a better job of attracting minorities. He didn’t get it when he was running. He doesn’t get it now. With any luck, neither he nor his GOP train wreck will get it ever.
