Eddie and I cried together

By | 2013-03-27T14:28:40+00:00 Mar 2013|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

Today as I join Arizona in mourning the loss of one of the greatest people of our time,I remember the day Eddie Basha and I cried together. It was 1994. He was running for governor. I had recently written "The Trunk Murderess: Winnie Ruth Judd." To my surprise, Winnie Ruth, who had secretly moved back [...]

What an inauguration!

By | 2013-01-22T16:34:02+00:00 Jan 2013|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

I was thrilled Monday at the second inauguration of President Obama, and never more proud to be an America. The President so clearly held the door wide open for all in this nation as we go forward, showing his breakthrough election and then reelection was just the start. My heart soared when he cited the [...]

WHAT NRA powerhouse?

By | 2013-01-17T17:51:54+00:00 Jan 2013|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

Everyone is talking as if the National Rifle Association is so powerful, it can't be stopped; that it can prevent the will of the vast majority of Americans--85 percent in some cases--who are demanding common sense changes to our laws on guns. Here's how toothless this tiger really is: In the November election, as the [...]

News for hit-and-run angry voter

Boy, I hate to be the one to tell you, Holly Solomon, but you ran down your husband and permanently disfigured him--all because of the misinformed and misguided thought that President Obama's reelection would hurt your family. Holly, it is President Obama that will most HELP your family. Mitt Romney as President would have given [...]

Governor Brewer: Feckless

By | 2012-11-09T16:13:02+00:00 Nov 2012|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

I don't know if Governor Jan Brewer knows what "feckless" means, but since it's a label applied to her, she should. The American Heritage Dictionary says feckless means: "lacking purpose or vitality; ineffective; careless, irresponsible." The word is important because it summarizes the bizarre and irresponsible response from the State Capitol to the shooting rampage [...]

Republicans still don’t get it

By | 2012-11-08T20:35:16+00:00 Nov 2012|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

For the last 48 hours, we've been fed a diet of Republican gruel lamenting that if they'd just had a better candidate; if they'd had a Latino on the ballot; if they'd be better at "communicating" with women and minorities, they'd be in the White House now. They don't have a clue. I said it [...]

Obama’s thank you email

Last night, the reelected President of the United States sent an email to his supporters. Here's what he emailed me: Jana -- I'm about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first. I want you to know that this wasn't fate, and it wasn't an accident. You [...]

The President I Want

By | 2012-11-06T12:48:28+00:00 Nov 2012|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

I watched President Obama's last political rally in Iowa--the state where it all started for him 4 years ago--and thought, "I hope this time, the campaigning Obama is the Obama we get in the White House." I love President Obama as a candidate. He inspires. He raises hope. He looks and sounds like a strong [...]

The World picks Obama

By | 2012-11-06T12:10:46+00:00 Nov 2012|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

The BBC is reporting that if the world could vote, it would overwhelmingly chose President Obama. He won 20 nations in a 21-nation poll: 72 percent of the French; two-thirds of Canadians. The only natiion to go for Gov. Romney is Pakistan. But what the world wants doesn't count today. What counts is what American [...]
