The 2014 Mid-Term Elections is not just about control of Congress. No matter which party wins, we will all be losers. Due to an unprecedented amount of retirements from both parties this year the US Congress is losing a tremendous amount of experience, knowledge and ability to get things done.

Rejected and ridiculed by the rest of us, conspiracy theorists tend to hide away on internet chat forums where they blather on about the collapse of 7 World Trade Center, the rise of the Illuminati or the omnipresence of Mossad. Not the climate-change deniers. Unlike Israel's intelligence agency, they really do seem to be omnipresent these days.

The Week That Was: A Small but Proud Island

There is absolutely nothing like someone criticising the British to bring the British together. Remember just before the Olympics last year, when we were all still convinced it was going to be a total flop, and then US presidential candidate Mitt Romney came over, essentially said the same thing, and, well, we all went a little nuts? Fast forward a year and a bit, and with Cameron licking his wounds over his Syria Commons defeat, one of Vladimir Putin's senior aides steps in with a nicely timed insult, and we're lining up behind the PM to defend our glorious nation.

Obama's Crisis of Trust

As the saying goes "presidential candidates campaign in poetry and if they are lucky enough to win, they govern in prose". Presidential Candidate Barack Obama was especially good at campaigning in poetry. Perhaps that is why, even though he has won re-election for a second term, he is unwilling to dismantle his campaign appartus and get into the down and dirty, nitty-gritty work of governing in hard edged well disciplined prose.

Despite their last two presidential candidates running on a hard right platform and then losing, the majority of potential candidates for 2016 are those on the far right of the party.

The Lesson of US 2012 for British Tories: Appeal to the Middle Class or Someone Else Will

Simon Phillips-Hughes | Posted 08.02.2013 | UK Politics

Cameron shares Romney's liabilities as much as his strengths. Neither leader has made any convincing attempt to mitigate the message of austerity. In this global economy, any responsible politician knows government has got to spend less and/or bring in more.
