Let's face it, what we Americans take for granted - endless political campaigns rife with cash and a terminal election elimination process rife with guile, distrust and humiliation - even our most politically savvy friends across the Atlantic scratch their collective heads and declare...

Luckily for James Woods, his criticisms of Obama, while hardly measured, could never be considered extremist. But, if he does find himself on a Fox News sofa, talking about how the President may be a Muslim, he can kiss his career in the mainstream goodbye.

Factionalism is once again rife in the US. The Republican-led shutdown of the federal government last week is but the latest in a series of politically orchestrated crises designed to erode Barack Obama's domestic legitimacy. Whatever success Republicans achieve domestically, holding the federal government hostage to an extremist minority at home is not cost-free internationally...

America's Blatant Violation of the Will of the Founding Fathers

It is such a shame that conveniently the religious right feel they can ignore parts of the ideals of the Founding Fathers. What I find more of a shame is that the Republican Party is slowly becoming synonymous with religion and religious values. There are only a handful of moderate Republicans anymore

Just as when Tory MP, David Davies called plans to legalise gay marriage "barking mad", then tried to justify his homophobia by explaining he hadn't had "diversity training", this newest development in the American abortion debate would be laughable if it wasn't so horrifying.

There are less than two weeks left for the Obama Administration and Congress to reach a deal to avoid the Fiscal Cliff. There are clearly two games going on here - one is purely political (who gets the credit and who gets the blame) and the other is actual deal making.
