Ben Carson Super PAC Lurches Clumsily Out Of Gate In Iowa

Sometimes, we can learn a good deal about political candidates by observing their supporters.

When the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee, run by John Philip Sousa the Fourth, announced the opening of an office in Iowa this week, Ben Carson supporters celebrated the move as a sign of the strength of their favored […]

Americans Elect Corporate Leaders Ditched Populism Entirely to Support 2014 Private Equity Senate Candidate

Last October, I noted the strong connection between Americans Elect corporate leadership and the 2014 Senate candidacy of private equity candidate Greg Orman through an entity called the Committee to Elect an Independent Senate, founded by Americans Elect CEO and private equity financier Peter Ackerman. Since then, this new politial enterprise of Peter Ackerman’s has […]

Free Color-In 2016 Electoral College Map

Yesterday, we had one of our Irregular Times readers pose an Electoral College challenge – could Jeb Bush actually put together enough state victories to win the general presidential election? To be able to address this challenge, it was necessary to refer to a list of the delegates that each state is able to send […]

Jeb Bush Begins His 2016 Presidential Campaign With Corruption

It’s official: Jeb Bush is running for President in 2016.

The opening of the Jeb Bush for President campaign begins, however, with just the kind of doublespeak that we all remember from the days of George W. Bush.

This morning, in a message to his followers, Jeb Bush wrote that he will now “actively explore” […]

Movement To Draft Elizabeth Warren For President

Senator Elizabeth Ann Warren has said that she will not run for President in 2016. However, for many Democrats, Hillary Clinton is a disheartening candidate. They’re dismayed by Hillary Clinton’s support for the Rush to war in Iraq, and by the way that it took her a decade to admit that vote was a mistake. […]

Rick Santorum 2016: The Pros And Cons

Retired U.S. Senator Rick Santorum has announced that he will be running for President in 2016. In 2012, Santorum was one of the Blip Of The Month Republicans, as GOP favor flittered around between him and Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, and Rick Perry before settling on the year’s biggest loser of all, Mitt Romney. Rick […]

The U.S. Tortures People … Which Three Senators Didn’t Want You To Know?

“Warning: Many readers may find the following material offensive.”

So wrote USA Today without irony before describing how the United States tortured people, to no end, in our names. Today, you can read for yourself a redacted version of a 2012 Senate report, finally released after years of stalling, that confirms in detail that agents […]

Mitt Romney for President 2016… Awkward!

Mitt Romney is getting on a bit in years, edging into that time of life when a man can begin to engage in odd sorts of behavior that people around him find to be embarrassing – compulsions like running for President over and over again.

Reports at the beginning of this week have Mitt […]

Ben Carson’s Political Support Proves Thin

Ben Carson’s supporters are touting a new 2016 presidential candidate poll by ORC International, saying that it shows that Ben Carson has “strong” support among Republican voters. What counts as a “strong” showing in the polls, according to pro-Carson activists?

The poll indicates that Ben Carson is the primary choice of just ten percent of […]

Ben Carson Presidential Campaign Limps Behind Even Mitt Romney’s

Earlier this autumn, Ben Carson tried to buy enthusiasm for the idea of his coming presidential campaign by paying for a documentary about what a great guy he is to be filmed and televised nationwide. Did this strategy work?

Ben Carson for President enthusiasts say it did, but reality says something a little different.

A […]

Americans Still Think Barack Obama Is Doing Better Than George W. Bush Did

Republicans are crowing about the latest approval ratings of Barack Obama, gathered by Gallup. They show Barack Obama with an approval rate of just 43 percent. That’s bad. Heck. I don’t approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as President.

However, I disapproved of the job George W. Bush did even more than I […]
