Democrats Tackle Faith

June 6th, 2007 by Peter Slutsky

Monday night, CNN held a forum with John Edwards, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton where they talked about the issues of faith and politics. I watched the forum on TV and thought that all three candidates articulated well their relationship with faith and religion and the role that both have played on their public and personal lives. The moderator, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien asked good questions and the panel of clergy, writers and leaders in the religious community did a good job of balancing their political views with their questions for the candidates. NPR has a good wrap up of the forum. Click on the image below to hear the radio broadcast.

What Has Bush Done Right?

September 8th, 2006 by Peter Slutsky

What has Bush done right? Well, judging by this new CBS poll, not much! (I highlighted the most surprising numbers in red)

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT BUSH’S PRESIDENCY?

Poll 1
WHAT DO YOU LIKE LEAST ABOUT BUSH’S PRESIDENCY?
Poll 2

As we approach the 2006 elections, things are just getting worse and worse for President Bush and the GOP. It all boils down to one issue: IRAQ.

There is no good ending to a war that you’ve already won. We need to bring the troops home and then the GOP can fight amongst themselves on who is better at screwing up America’s national security.
