For President Obama, the importance of passing Obamacare clearly trumped the pressing need of restoring our economy. The Supreme Court’s decision today merely reminds us of the scope of the president’s substantial squander and the importance of the election this November.
Mitt Romney is going to stick in New Mexico. That’s the sticker. Shocker.
If a person is “pro-life” in the instance of an unborn child, then shouldn’t that person be pro-life and anti-death penalty in the instance of a born and living human being?
Primary voters might be paying close attention to social issues, but the party as a whole is not. The Republican Party bleeds purple, not bright red.

NMPolitics.net’s Sarah Lenti talked with two of the most influential women in her life – former National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice and former Homeland Security Advisor Frances Fragos Townsend – to get their thoughts on a changed nation and what we still have to learn from 9/11.

I would place any wager that Governor Rick Perry is about to do what former President George W. Bush did in 1999. And that would be announcing his bid for president.
CNN consciously excluded former N.M. Gov. Gary Johnson from its upcoming presidential debate. Since when does the media get to decide who is a credible presidential candidate and who is not?
