There's very widespread scientific agreement that climate change is occurring. But much of the argument and opposition revolves around whether it is human-induced or not.

I've Met 'Romney' and You Know What? He's a D*ck

It is often said that voters pick their candidate by asking the question: Which one would you want to have a beer with? Well since Pudney doesn't drink beer, I will pose an alternative question: Which candidate possesses cockish qualities which, if you saw them displayed in person, would make you say, 'I would never vote for that person'.

Humor Me: What's So Funny About the US Presidential Candidates?

When President Obama let fly the scolding, "Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets," to illustrate Mitt Romney's grasp of modern military during the third presidential debate, the chuckle could be heard around the world. Arguably Obama's retort accomplished what it intended to do: Embarrass his political rival and earn the president points as someone in the trenches - all under the forgiving cloak of humor.

'Trust Me' - It's About Fear

Trust me! No, I am not citing Mitt Romney, although those two words sum up the substance of his appeal for votes at last night's debate. What I mean is: trust me this election is going to be a cliffhanger.

It strikes me - this is an impression not a scientific conclusion - that Obama wants to be president less desperately than does Romney.

Mainstream Mitt and the Race for the Middle

James Davis | Posted 04.12.2012 | UK Politics

Obama missed more than one opportunity to go on the offensive and force his opponent to reveal the details of any of those unseen "plans" he kept referring to (I counted at least four). But I'm not so sure that Romney will emerge the ultimate winner of this debate. By showing how quickly he is willing to throw off the cloak of the Republican right in order to appeal to mainstream Americans, he may have served to alienate both groups.

The Real Villain of the GOP Race is the President Himself (Part Two)

Scott Hill | Posted 12.03.2012 | UK Politics

The right are too segmented and the left continues to sit back silently, absorbing all the false promises and deceitful acts. If the Republican's want an irrational, trigger-happy right-winger in the White House they would do well to stick with what they currently have.
