Finally, someone is confirming what I’ve been talking and writing about for months; this election is all about race. Nothing more, nothing less.

Mitt Romney Stays Vague on Immigration Reform

“Now wait just a doggone minute there muchacho. I never said I don’t like ‘the Latinos’.  Of course, I never said I like them either.”

Obama Leads Big With Swing State Latinos

Marco Rubio Isn’t Mad at President Obama

“That half black-half white guy stole my idea!”

“All’s fair in war and politics, bitch!”

The Bain story isn’t going away: A day after the Obama campaign seized on a Bloomberg article noting that Romney officials had told Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) to stop touting positive economic news in his state, Chicago is pouncing on a new story: Bain Capital, under Romney’s direction, invested in firms that outsourced jobs to China and India. The Washington Post: “During the nearly 15 years that Romney was actively involved in running Bain, a private equity firm that he founded, it owned companies that were pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States to overseas call centers and factories making computer components, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.” More: “Bain played several roles in helping these outsourcing companies, such as investing venture capital so they could grow and providing management and strategic business advice as they navigated this rapidly developing field.” Folks, this story is a reminder that the Bain story isn’t going away… – NBC’s “First Thoughts”


Jerry Sandusky Guilty Verdict


True Team: How LeBron James and The Miami Heat Took The NBA Title


What struck me the most, and has since the start of this case, is that Jerry Sandusky’s expression never changed. He’s had the same dopey, semi-bemused, “Where am I?” look on his face all along. Even last night, facing the rest of his life in prison, he just looked like, “Oh well” as he was led off to the police car, almost emotionless.

Now it’s time to go after those Penn State officials who KNEW but remained quiet for so many years.

Let’s be clear about this: the only reason why Attorney General Holder is under fire right now is because it’s an election year and for the first 3 & ½ years of the Obama administration, there has been virtually no scandals or situations of questionable behavior for Republicans to bring up. Even the former Secretary of the Commerce Department’s recent auto accidents were caused by a medical condition and not alcohol or drugs.

Every time the Republicans think they’ve boxed President Obama into a corner – this time it was immigration and the long-stalled Dream Act – he punches his way out like Ali in his prime. Not saying he’s perfect, but Barack Obama is a damn good politician and president.

A few months ago, Republicans were blaming President Obama for rising gas prices, so I guess they’re giving him credit now that they’re falling, right?

Rielle Hunter and John Edwards were made for each other.

Uh, not to condone what the “bullies” did to school bus monitor Karen Klein, but as the bus monitor, wasn’t it her job to tell them to “sit down and shut up”? I mean, why did she just sit there and take the abuse without at least trying to stop it?

Congratulations to Steve Harvey who will receive a star next year on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Jacksons on tour without Michael is like a grilled cheese sandwich without the cheese.

So, I’m guessing that “LeBron James can’t ‘close’ a game” and “the Heat don’t need Chris Bosh” nonsense is over.

He’s won championships as a player, coach and president/co-owner, had a major impact on three NBA franchises – Lakers, Knicks and Heat – and is in the Basketball Hall of Fame, so my question today is, has anyone in any of the four major professional sports in America had the overall career that Pat Riley’s had?

Laker fans have to be disheartened by Jim Buss’ statements this week that the team won’t be making any major trades or free agent signings and that, more than likely, both Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol will be on the team next season.

Dodgers need a healthy and productive Matt Kemp back in the line-up as soon as possible.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I just can’t get excited about the upcoming London Summer Olympics or Madea in Witness Protection.
