When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

It hit me right after the last republican debate the other night– these guys are just the like bullies I knew in middle school! Donald on Cruz “He’s a liar” Cruz on Trump “..who the heck knows what he would do? Even Donald doesn’t know what he would do.”

Trump on Rubio: 
“Little Marco, applies makeup with a trowel” then mocks him for needing to drink water and sweating too much”.
Back and forth, round and round. Robot Rubio, The spray tan Donald. Hair force one. Sorry, I know, lame ass (but true) puns. Remember the playground from 6th grade? Sound familiar? Testosterone was just starting. Fart joke, butt jokes, and yes…dick jokes.

 So it came as a real surprise that the worst attack that followed days later was by Marco Rubio…”the Donald is 6’ 2’ and did you see his hands? They’re so small….you know what they say about men with small hands”

Yep, he went there. Are you kidding me GOP? This is your new “anointed one”. This first class a-hole just showed us how immature he really is. The same Florida senator who said, appearing on Fox and Friends back last June:
“We already have a president now that has no class. We have a president now that, you know, does selfie stick videos, that invites YouTube stars there, you know, people who eat cereal out of a bathtub.”
Calling him unfit to be President? Bingo Marco – You aren’t either; by your own standards no less! These morons can’t get out of their own way!

Then there’s Religious Liberty. Gov. Kasich went further than any of his rivals in dismissing — even belittling — the idea that businesses should be able to claim religious liberty and allow them not to cater to gay and lesbian couples.
“Tomorrow, maybe I won’t sell to somebody who’s divorced,” Mr. Kasich said, his voice rising.
“If you’re in the business of commerce, conduct commerce. That’s my view. And if you don’t agree with their lifestyle, say a prayer for them when they leave.”
Deafening silence fell across the stage. Republican talking heads almost exploded with that position the following day

With most republicans I know, they are ready for Rubio to be the prom king. So let’s play out the Marco campaign – Shouts from the floor in Cleveland – MARCO!...(from the far side of the arena) RUBIO. MARCO! RUBIO! I wonder, am I at another 6th grade pool party? Maybe Marco will invite all to play a game of stickball.

Your unfriendly neighborhood Tea bagger – he wants Trump. I kind of feel bad for The Donald. He’s been taking it on the chin, feigning not knowing who David Duke was, or having earpiece issues about why he should decline the white supremacy endorsement, So let’s give them a winning hashtag for the rest of the campaign - #feeltheorangeburn
