  1. jason says:

    Leader of the pack.

  2. Cash Cow TM says:

    U.S. attacks Asshat in Syria…

    and only jason, tina and Cow are here to defend HHR against any counterattack.

  3. Bitterlaw says:

    I’m on duty, CC.

  4. Cash Cow TM says:

    Oh and thank you for the clean sheet of paper, Master Dave!

  5. Cash Cow TM says:

    OK, Bitter here too.

    jason, get the llamas in a circle.

    Bitter, prepare a cease and desist, or a tort or something.

    I can provide the milk.

    Who is going to make the sammiches?

  6. jason says:

    “wasn’t it the Biden rule that you don’t confirm any SCOTUS judges with less than a year to go in the presidential term?”

    I must have missed that in the Constitution. Can you point me to it please? LOL”

    Ask Biden, he was the one who said it.

  7. Cash Cow TM says:

    Here comes Walt wearing a helmet and carrying his 30-30…

  8. Cash Cow TM says:

    jason,

    no time to talk about cray people…circle the damn llamas!

    Guys this hawk is all for Syria intervention too, but I can’t shake the fact we’re hoping Donald f*cking Trump doesn’t f*ck this up…

  10. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder if Author’s sister has been ordered to commit war crimes yet.

  11. jason says:

    Did the A-Hole’s send these planes to frighten the HOBOs?”

    Just a dry run for the real thing at Bunu’s parent’s house.

  12. PresidentPaul! says:

    “Donald J. Trump ? @realDonaldTrump
    What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval.
    1:14 PM – 29 Aug 2013”

  13. PresidentPaul! says:

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/hillary-clinton-calls-strikes-syrian-airfields/story?id=46635881

    Clinton calls for strikes against Syrian airfields “to prevent [Assad] from being able to…bomb innocent people.” (said Assad will use the airfields to drop sarin gas)

  14. Robbie says:

    Great decision by Trump. Even nasty Martha Radditz said she’d never seen such a response come together so quickly. It’s great contrast with the dithering self reflection of Obama.

  15. PresidentPaul! says:

    U.S. ‘backed plan to launch chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad’s regime’

    https://web.archive.org/web/20130129213824/http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2270219/U-S-planned-launch-chemical-weapon-attack-Syria-blame-Assad.html

  16. Bitterlaw says:

    Zzzzzzzz. Bunu’s article is more than 4 yeas old.

  17. Proud Obamacon says:

    This is the right call .. but let’s not forget what Groper in Chief said in 2013:

    “What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval.” – Donald Trump

    LOL Looooooosah. Kill the terrorists, I’m all for it buddy

  18. Bitterlaw says:

    Uh oh. MSNBC seems ok with the strikes. Of course, Chris Matthews thinks that Trump and Putin worked this out ahead of time so Trump can pretend that he is not Putin’s puppet.

  19. Proud Obamacon says:

    Give it a break Bitterlaw. Of course we all would be behind any American action to take out Assad regardless of who is in office. Dems unite, Repugs just play politics.

  20. Bitterlaw says:

    RIght, Obamacon. Dems just love the military. As long as they don’t use weapons and focus on important issues like paying for “Chelsea Manning’s” surgery.

  21. Tina says:

    Dumb decision

    The neo cons want a war over a sheot bowl.

  22. Proud Obamacon says:

    You’re right, Dems do love the military. Only in your dream world so all Dems dream of hating the military. Maybe a few loons do, but most Dems love the military and are part of the military too!

  23. Tina says:

    Why not take out asswhipe?

  24. Tina says:

    Trump is angering me. It is more bush obama clintue unfinish warfare.

  25. Tina says:

    Build the case and show proof.

    That is all i ask.

  26. Tina says:

    Holy smokes, he took out the syrian airforce completely.

  27. Cash Cow TM says:

    tina,as long as Asshat is carrying a child in his arms (or tied to his hip or whatever) U.S. could not afford to take out Asshat–due to collateral damage of U.S. killing a child.

    Martha Ratsazz and the other news people would go bonkers.

  28. Chicon says:

    26 – why take the time to show you? You won’t believe it anyway.

  29. Cash Cow TM says:

    Do you think DJT called his pal Pootie and said:

    “Pootie, I think it would be an excellent idea to get all Russians off air base X in…say, like 6 minutes.”

  30. Chicon says:

    Cow – fox reports that indeed happened.

  31. Tina says:

    He did not take out the gas.

  32. Proud Obamacon says:

    How many civilians did the Orange Groper just kill?

  33. Tina says:

    Pooty poot is mad now.

  34. Tina says:

    I would believe it if they showed proof. The last chemical attack was the so called rebels that launched it. You know the aq thoes that mcamensry and goober met with.

  35. Barrett says:

    A good time for the country to unite and stand against the worst type of human aggression. Good call by trump. Those who suffered in the gas attacks did not die for nothing.

  36. Tina says:

    It is not our war but I get it.

  37. Robbie says:

    No comment by me needed.

    Mike Cernovich
    @Cernovich

    Did McCain give “moderate rebels” (ISIS) in Syria poison gas and Hollywood style film equipment?

  38. Tina says:

    I guess there are no more trump russian ties even though none existed

  39. Tina says:

    Ok, maybe trump does deserve the benefit of doubt.

    I see the uniparty war folks are all over faux.

  40. Cash Cow TM says:

    Our former HHR poster Michael (PSU) says on Facebook he is totally opposed to DJT action in tomahawking Syria. Michael says he “is truly worried and we must call for answers now.”

  41. Tina says:

    Little marco is talking like a tough guy. Does he have his woman boots on?

  42. Tina says:

    I woukd give the be efit of the doubt if bush did not lie about iraq.

  43. Cash Cow TM says:

    “How many civilians did the Orange Groper just kill?”
    ******************************
    As soon as Asshat can round up and kill a bunch of Syrians and salt their bodies at the tomahawked airbase, Asshat will let you know the exact numbers, ProudPossum.

  44. Tina says:

    Seems ofd that the sos kerry certified that syria had no wmds.

  45. Tina says:

    I would have taken out asshat.

  46. Chicon says:

    Tina – what would “proof” look like to you?

  47. Cash Cow TM says:

    Aren’t some of the rebel groups fighting against Asshat pro whackadoodle?

    If it turns out the gas attack was by some group of Syrian rebels and not the Asshat Syrians, well…we could always deeply apologize.

  48. Tina says:

    Niw fat newt is speaking

  49. Proud Obamacon says:

    How many civilians did the Pussy Grabber kill ? How many Russian jets did we just take out? Did we kill any Russians? OOOOOpppsieeee!

  50. Tina says:

    The syrians had no wmds in 2014 per kerry. Did he lie? The rebels did the previous poison gas attack, when obama drew the red line.

    I think so ething would help

  51. Tina says:

    Pawn nannity is happy.

  52. Bitterlaw says:

    Anybody who claims almost everything that she disagrees with is fake news will not accept proof of Assad’s involvement.

  53. Cash Cow TM says:

    Saddam Hussein (no relations to Barack Hussein Obama) gassed different groups of Iraqis who opposed him and killed many.

    So…apparently Saddam had WMDs and used them.
    U.S. invaded Iraq in part to find and destroy WMDs.
    supposedly, none were found.
    Where did Saddams WMDs go?
    Well, Syria shares a big border with Iraq….

    And NOW we see gas WMDs being used in Syria…

  54. Tina says:

    Yes, but why did the us declare in 2014 that there were no wmds in 2014. What changed and why did we allow them to get them, or did they never give the. Up?

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    Thanks, Cash Cow. Wes should here in 3…2…1….

  56. Tina says:

    Yes bl, the incident is tragic, but there is no proof that asshat did it.

  57. Tina says:

    Asshat is no good, but the worse could be the so called aq rebels that mcamnesty met with,

    Just saying.

  58. Tina says:

    Ok, there is supposedely video of syrian planes taking off and comducting the gas bo,bimg raid. If true, why not show it.

    It would be believable.

  59. Cash Cow TM says:

    OMG!

    On Facebook somebody put a video of a giraffe walking around with legs of a baby giraffe sticking out of its rear!

    Gross!

  60. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Trump just signaled the world that the days of the U.S. having a pacifist, weak president are now over. North Korea better be listening.

  61. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “He struck a military base that was used not just for chemical attacks, but potentially for future chemical attacks.” Marco Rubio

  62. Chicon says:

    SDC – perhaps this is similar to the air traffic controller strike for Reagan, which helped convince the commies that he meant what he said.

  63. Tina says:

    Translated he hit a camel that coukd pass gass.

  64. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    64. Exactly, we have a president that not only barks, but bites. We have not had that in some time. When Obama backed down in Syria many years ago, it signaled to the world that he was a weakling who would not use force. Those days are over.

  65. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says U.S. airstrike on Syrian airbase “is the right thing to do.”

  66. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Imagine Trump’s talks with his guest the Chinese President about North Korea probably have gotten a lot more interesting.

  67. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    Bitter and jason: Can Kelly be competitive against Casey next year?
    http://www.rollcall.com/news/politics/kelly-considering-run-casey

  68. Chicon says:

    Gorsuch vote at 11:45 eastern time today. Dems waive some debate time so they can go to on vacation. Resistance is cool, but not as cool as vacation.

  69. Barrett says:

    “Proud Obamacon says:How many civilians did the Pussy Grabber kill ? How many Russian jets did we just take out? Did we kill any Russians? OOOOOpppsieeee!”

    What are “citizens” doing on an airfield where chemical weapons were launched? Ask yourself how many citizens Assad gassed.

    Did we kill any russians? Russians involved in chemical attacks against people of other countries deserve to die. Enough said.

  70. NYCmike says:

    “Did (anyone) give “moderate rebels” (ISIS) in Syria poison gas and Hollywood style film equipment?”

    -How is this NOT a legitimate question? Leave McCain’s name out of it, and insert CIA. That is far-fetched? Why?

    Do I believe something like this happened? NO, I don’t think we would need someone from the U.S. to be that Machiavellian. The people who are there are putrid enough individuals to do it themselves.

    BUT, there are no clean hands between Assad, Putin/Russia, ISIS, “moderate rebels” (my ass), Hamas/Iran, etc……

  71. NYCmike says:

    As for Trump’s response, he should go ahead and bomb the “moderate rebels” camp as well, so that everyone is ON NOTICE.

  72. NYCmike says:

    “Resistance is cool, but not as cool as vacation.”

    #RelentlessResistanceHeyCanIHaveAnotherPinaColada

  73. Chicon says:

    74 – totally, dude….

  74. Chicon says:

    75 – yep, she’s very impressive.

  75. Mrs. Walt says:

    “Savilla’s definition of a wife is to listen to and follow her husband and bear his children, Kohler said.”

    My definition of a husband is someone who will work like a dog doing chores 18 hours a day.

  76. jason says:

    69. Sorry to say, no.

  77. jason says:

    “Savilla’s definition of a wife is to listen to and follow her husband and bear his children, Kohler said.”

    I think this is wrong too. They should have other skill sets.

  78. NYCmike says:

    What the heck does the barber know anyway?!?

  79. jason says:

    I am glad Trump did the right thing.

    The fact the Paulbots didn’t like it is a bonus.

  80. NYCmike says:

    “I am glad Trump did the right thing.”

    -Time will tell if it was “the right thing”.

  81. jason says:

    roud Obamacon says:
    April 6, 2017 at 10:53 pm

    How many civilians did the Pussy Grabber kill ?”

    You were never worried about all the civilians Obama killed over the years, but thanks for your sudden concern.

    And btw, I always supported Obama’s drone war and killing of terrorists, and understood there was no way to avoid civilian deaths in the process. You can look through here for the 8 years and see that I never blamed him for the countless times the US was accused of collateral damage.

    So GFY.

    And show me where you were ever concerned about Bill Clinton “pussy grabbing” in the Oval Office and the accusations of rape, groping and sexual harassment.

  82. jason says:

    -Time will tell if it was “the right thing”.

    No, it has nothing to do with “time”.

    The use of WMD is unacceptable and Trump’s action made that clear.

    That stands the test of time.

  83. Phil says:

    What’s the controversy? He didn’t put boots on the ground. He blew up the air base that launched a chemical strike on women and children. Duh.

    Why in the hell would anyone have a problem with that? You want him to look the other way and give the butcher a pass to do it again? Seriously, that’s what you want.

    What is the matter with some of you? Think this butcher isn’t going to think twice about pulling it again? I guarantee damn well he will.

    I get why cranks like Bunu and Rand Paul don’t like it. Have no idea where the rest of you are coming from.

  84. jason says:

    ina says:
    April 6, 2017 at 10:44 pm

    It is not our war but I get it.”

    Peace in our time….

    Nice, but it doesn’t work.

    It would be nice if we could crawl into a shell and pretend there is no outside world.

    It IS our war, not only in the moral sense, but from a geopolitical view also. You can’t ignore the use of chemical weapons on civilians in Syria anymore than ignoring the Holocaust was going in Europe.

  85. Robbie says:

    Never change, Ron Paul. Never change.

    Ron Paul claims the Syrian gas attacks were a false flag operation and there’s no way Assad had anything to do with them.

    I’m usually not one who believes family members should have to answer for other family members, but I think Rand Paul should be asked if he agrees with his father.

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/04/06/ron_paul_syria_gas_attack_could_be_false_flag_zero_chance_assad_is_responsible.html

  86. Phil says:

    Ron Paul = bunu.

    Nuff said.

  87. jason says:

    Why in the hell would anyone have a problem with that? You want him to look the other way and give the butcher a pass to do it again? Seriously, that’s what you want.”

    They want to wait until WMD is used in the US.

    Then it will become our war. You know, after they have used it successfully many times elsewhere while we pretend its not happening.

  88. Robbie says:

    Axios reports Trump is mulling a major staff shake up that could mean Preibus and Bannon are out the door. Joe Scarborough, who has said for weeks Bannon’s time is dwindling, said this morning he thinks Priebus may well survive. I tend to trust Scarborough’s views because it’s been widely reported he talks constantly with Jared Kushner.

    The names Axios mentions as possible replacements for Priebus are interest, but one is a real head scratcher. Mike Allen suggests Kevin McCarthy might be willing to quit as Majority Leader and become CoS. That seems odd to me.

    https://www.axios.com/exclusive-trump-eyes-new-chief-of-staff-house-leader-on-short-list-2349015716.html?utm_medium=linkshare&utm_campaign=organic

  89. Wes-sexy says:

    Trump is an incompetent bungling moron. He used one WMD. Where is the proof that he has a second WMD? Maybe he only had one and he is no longer a threat.

  90. Robbie says:

    The one name mentioned in the Axios article as a potential CoS that caught my eye is Wayne Berman. He served in the GWB Commerce Department so he has experience and would know the lay of the land.

    That said, Trump, should he make a move, needs to clearly define roles so everyone knows who is in charge. Ultimately, it seems Kushner is de facto CoS and, truth be told, I’m fine with that. He wants to see Trump succeed and seems to understand him better than just about anyone else.

  91. Tina says:

    Ok, two disagreements with trump.

    Syria seems unnecessary

    Ryanocare 1.0 no good.

  92. Tina says:

    Terrible jobs numbers repirt too.

  93. Robbie says:

    Great news. I’d love to see Romney in the Senate.

    Kasie Hunt?
    @kasie 6s
    6 seconds ago

    NEWS: Mitch McConnell confirms he’s talked to Mitt Romney about running for Senate in the event Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, decides to retire

  94. Tina says:

    The rino shuffle.

  95. Tina says:

    If the gassing is an issue, why not destroy the chemicala and all of their airbases?

  96. Tina says:

    Nikki Haley says another Security Council ambassador texted her Wed: ‘It’s so good to see America lead’ on Syria

    Thank you sarah palin 2.0.

  97. Diamond Jim says:

    C

  98. Tina says:

    And no regime change. If you go in, i will sit out the next election. Not that it matters here.

  99. NYCmike says:

    “If the gassing is an issue, why not destroy the chemicala and all of their airbases?”

    -Phil,

    Answer this question, then you can hyperventilate.

    As I said earlier, I have no issues with the missiles. Trump should bomb the other sides as well, the “moderate rebels” etc.

    BUT, “the right thing” may lead to other things. That is the point I was trying to make…..TIME WILL TELL.

  100. Tina says:

    I will give him the benefit of the doubt but the 2014 gassing was caused by the syrian rebels aka Aq. The ones mcamnesty, goober, and mcmuffin met with. It was a major embarasement for the cia.

  101. jason says:

    Zzzzz.. whether it will lead “to other things” has nothing to do on whether it was the right thing to do or not.

    Nobody said there are no consequences to military action.

    Reacting with military force for the use of chemical weapons was the right thing to do. Period.

  102. jason says:

    I will give him the benefit of the doubt but the 2014 gassing”

    It’s now 2017, not 2014 and Trump is President since January.

    He is dealing with the facts at hand.

  103. Tina says:

    Hey, i only ask these questions.

    Now a russian ship is on a direct course with the ship that launched the cruise missiles

    I no its saber rattling, but why start ww 3 over a cesspool?

  104. Robbie says:

    The chemical stockpiles were not hit because the weapons used to destroy the building that houses the nerve gas would not have been able to generate the heat necessary to consume the gases. Had they gone ahead and struck the stockpiles with the Tomahawk missiles, the explosion would have sent the Sarin gas into the air and potentially harmed even more people.

  105. jason says:

    And no regime change. If you go in, i will sit out the next election. Not that it matters here.”

    It matters to me. If Trump can get rid of Assad, I might even vote for him.

  106. Tina says:

    Faux news says they have the pilot number from the syrian airforce that launched the gas attack. They should release the video, or whatever they have.

    Make the case strong.

  107. Tina says:

    The gas can be easily trucked somewhere else. If they knew the location, they should have taken it out.

    They also need to explain why francois kerry certified that syria had no wmds. Where did the new wmds come from?

  108. Tina says:

    And you definetly take out the gas and all the airbases.

  109. jason says:

    but why start ww 3 over a cesspool?”

    Nobody started WWIII.

    Trump made it clear the use of WMD against civilians is not acceptable.

    The Russians are free to do what they want in response.

    Are they going to start WWIII over a Syrian airbase?

  110. jason says:

    Remember how many times I said Bunu was going to be very disappointed with Trump?

  111. jason says:

    but I think Rand Paul should be asked if he agrees with his father.”

    This is like asking a bear if he craps in the woods or Proud Obamacare if he is a Marxist.

  112. Tina says:

    Bubu has issues.

  113. Tina says:

    Bannon still at wh

    https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/850362060407963650

    I knew the jebots, drats, and never trumpeters would target him predicited it last week.

  114. jason says:

    Over at Kos they are very unhappy Schumer gave up on 7 hours of debate on Gorsuch. They make clear all they want to do is oppose Trump no matter how inconsequential the opposition is…

    “The Senate will vote on Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court Friday morning at approximately 11:45 AM ET, about seven hours earlier than necessary. How did the Democrats lose seven hours of debate time on the most consequential of issues? Minority Leader Chuck Schumer agreed to give them away. Does that matter when the result is already baked in, when Mitch McConnell has already changed the rules to assure an outcome—a right-wing ideologue and Republican operative on the court?

    Yes it matters. It matters because the stakes right now are very high, because Democrats have few powers, but they have a critical one—to be a thorn in McConnell’s side and to make nothing quick or easy for him. That means using up every potential parliamentary procedure and every single second of time available to them to block him from his malign enabling of an illegitimate president. It’s not hyperbole. McConnell is in the process of, in the words of professor Thomas Levenson “destroying the American experiment and ending the American century.”

    ……

    Sen. Schumer, you need to do better if you’re going to be part of the resistance. We will have your back when you have ours. And you need the resistance if you harbor any dreams of being majority leader in your tenure. You’re not going to get the Senate back without us. You’re not going to save the country by giving Mitch McConnell one damned inch.”

  115. Marc says:

    Congratulations to the new Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, the Honorable Judge Neil Gorsuch.

  116. Tina says:

    Only good thing is Gorsuch. Yes, mitchie finalky played hard ball and finally did something, after 8 years of being a doormat.

    Now, he can get drunk.

  117. Phil says:

    Nobody is talking WWIII.

    They blew up the base that launched the attack.

    End of story. That was as measured a response as it gets. Went strictly at the source of the attack. It was that or look the other way. It’s not like he went after the Russians.

    Absolute right thing to do IMO

  118. Robbie says:

    Tina says:
    April 7, 2017 at 11:52 am
    Only good thing is Gorsuch. Yes, mitchie finalky played hard ball and finally did something, after 8 years of being a doormat.
    Now, he can get drunk.

    – Yeah, he was a doormat by blocking Obama’s Supreme Court nominee for a year so he could nuke the filibuster to get Gorsuch approved.

  119. jason says:

    I knew the jebots, drats, and never trumpeters would target him predicited it last week.”

    It shouldn’t matter what they think. If Bannon falls its because Trump decided it, its not “jebbots”.

    I am no fan of Bannon, but I have resisted Wobbie’s attacks on him when they are unwarranted.

  120. DW says:

    link at drudge:

    RAND PAUL: MUST COME TO CONGRESS FOR WAR APPROVAL…

    Yeah, keep living in the 18th century when news traveled by runners on foot, then by ship and attacks could still be a surprise when announced locally months in advance.

    Had Trump gone to congress and congress agreed to bomb the base, all critical material would have been moved by the time the bombs dropped on a deserted base.

    Bombing a base is not the same as a declaration of war.

  121. jason says:

    Absolute right thing to do IMO”

    No Phil, according to NYC, only “time will tell”.

  122. Bitterlaw says:

    Thank you sarah palin 2.0.

  123. Bitterlaw says:

    Thank you sarah palin 2.0.

    Damn. Tina hates Nikki Haley, too? How does she keep all of her hatred straight? Does she have a notebook?

  124. Barrett says:

    This is not WWIII. Phil summed it up pretty well in 121.

    The only question now is this; if Assad doubles down and continues to use chemical weapons, what will the strategy be?

    And I think the answer is that for each chemical attack, we retaliate in the same manner that we did today. We strike the source of the attack.

    This was a well thought out plan, but we need to make sure we continue to enforce this “red line” rule that Obama was so reluctant to address.

  125. Tina says:

    Rand is wrong.

    There is no such requirement unless troops are sent and they are staioned there or housed for a period.

  126. Tina says:

    Bl, she is a globalist and not so bright imo. One of trumps weak picks.

  127. Tina says:

    But she fits the un cantina scene well, sommaybe she is good?.

  128. Tina says:

    And more than mitchie, grassley deserves a lot of the credit imo.

  129. Tina says:

    Bannon pictures in meeting with chinese.

    Why is he still,there?

    Scarfarce reported frommhis sources of drats?

  130. Bitterlaw says:

    Special message TO: “Never Trump” Peeps!! Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. You are all welcome. FROM: irredeemable Deplorable Americans

  138. DW says:

    Justice Kennedy is a conservative! Who knew?

    At least according to Reuters that is…

    “The Republican-led Senate on Friday gave Donald Trump the biggest triumph of his young presidency, confirming his Supreme Court nominee over stout Democratic opposition and restoring a conservative majority on the highest U.S. judicial body.”

  139. Tina says:

    know, it’s kind of concerning to see Kristol, McMuffin & the McCain Cabal praise our POTUS. But just do what we always do, ignore ’em

    Yup,so true.

  140. DW says:

    Ages of SCOTUS Justices:

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 84
    Anthony Kennedy, 80
    Stephen Breyer, 78
    Clarence Thomas, 68
    Samuel Alito, 67
    Sonia Sotomayor, 62
    John Roberts, 62
    Elena Kagan, 56
    Neil Gorsuch, 49

    Observations:

    Ginsburg is really, really old. She looks older than 84

    Alito is sneaky old, just one year younger than Thomas.

    Kagan is way too young.

  141. Wes says:

    Three Democrat Senators–Heitkamp, Donnelly, and Manchin, all from states Trump carried decisively–voted to confirm Gorsuch. Tester, Brown, and McCaskill also hail from states Trump carried easily yet voted against Gorsuch. Republicans have talking points to use now against the latter three.

    Does anyone know why Isakson wasn’t present for the vote?

  142. DW says:

    147 – and Dem senate leadership was all in favor of Heitkamp, Donnelly and Manchin voting to confirm. They know how the game is played.

    They probably know Tester and McCaskill are toast anyway, so they didn’t matter. And they probably figure Brown holds on either way.

  143. Chicon says:

    How do things look for the Trump-in-bed-with-the-Russians meme at the moment? The other side looked the other way on Syria’s use of WMD’s, and Trump has already acted without regard to Vlad’s interests there. Who is tougher on Russia?

  144. Tina says:

    Isaackson had back surgert, he is recovering.

    The life expectancy of an 84 year old woman is 7 years.

    I would not be surprised if she can hold out for another 3 years, basically what it would take.

    I’m not sure why Dems would think Brown is invulnerable next year. Although he won 56-44 in 2006, he beat Mandel by only 51-46 in 2012. Meanwhile, Ohio shifted solidly GOP in 2016, going for Trump by a 51-43 margin. Those kinds of results wouldn’t lead me to conclude Tester is unbeatable.

    BS. What time will tell has nothing to do with whether it was the right thing to do or not.

    There may be consequences, that’s true. But Trump did the right thing regardless.

    It’s like being a good samaritan, stopping to help a stranded motorist. Even if you get struck by another vehicle as a consequence, it doesn’t mean helping stranded motorists isn’t the right thing to do.

  156. Robbie says:

    As far as 2018 goes, I’ll stick with my view about Trump’s approval rating.

    If Trump’s approval rating north of 45%, I think Republicans will be in line to win quite a few Senate seats (maybe 5 or more).

    If his approval rating is below 45%, then Republicans may walk away from 2018 having gained as little as 1 seat or even no gains.

    -That is ridiculous. While there is not always the luxury of thinking through every scenario, there are plenty of situations where stopping to help a stranded motorist could be MORE DETRIMENTAL TO THE STRANDED PERSON.

    Maybe the fact that you live in a less-populated area than the NY/NJ metro area, you don’t come across these types of situations. I have been yelled at by the police for stopping to help. I told them the only reason I stopped was because I was in a truck, and I felt that it created a large enough barrier. Not very receptive to that line of reasoning, but I did what I had to do. It would have been much more dangerous to stop with a car.

  167. DW says:

    “There may be consequences, that’s true. But Trump did the right thing regardless.”

    This is right, you have to do what is right at the time, and leave the later speculation of counter-factual history to be what it is.

    If someone had bumped off Hitler in, say, 1936, no doubt there would have been critics saying that history might have shown him to be harmless had he lived and the action was too aggressive.

    But he did live, and the world experienced the actual history brought about by his life, and the counter-factual history is what would have happened had he died.

    This is sort of the opposite side of the good Samaritan example above.

  168. NYCmike says:

    “See you have gone into your “concern troll” mode.”

    Wasn’t it just yesterday he was calling BS on that Enten character?

  169. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    -DW,

    You are making the point, actually. “bumped off” is pretty final, as opposed to bombing an airfield, while not taking out the rest of the weapons used, as Tina had asked.

    As I stated above, I don’t have much issue with what Trump did, but declaring it “the right thing to do” is, in my opinion, a verdict which may change depending on what happens in the future.

  172. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Rand Paul: “The law says that the president does not have the power to declare war, does not have the power to take us to war.”

    Does this clown not realize that we have been bombing Syria continually for the past couple of years, and have several hundred troops in combat with the Kurds in northern Syria?

    – Absolutely, I am uneasy about the special election in KS4. It should be a 60-40 win for a Republican, yet polling apparently shows it’s a close race. The NRCC spent a large sum recently (for Wichita anyway), Ted Cruz is headed there, and Pence is cutting robo calls. After all, we’re talking about Kansas.

    Estes has run a so-so campaign and Democrats have done very well in early voting. I’m not, for an instant, predicting the Democrat will pull off the shocker there, but it’s a race worth watching. A close race in a safe Republican district since 1994 is nothing to sneeze at.

    I disputed Harry Enten’s view KS4 should normally be a 30 point win when Pompeo usually got around 60% of the vote. I was not disputing that the race is close and, sadly, it looks like it might be a 5 point race.

  178. Chicon says:

    #1 – We continue to be consistent with this type of message when Syria uses chemical weapons

    #3 – It doesn’t lead to current U.S. forces in the region being retaliated against.

    3- The approximate $100,000 spent by the GOP was not cash, but in-kind contributions
    4- If the race was close, why has the DNC locked its pocketbook?

  196. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Am not unsympathetic to the plight of the demographic and religious groups supporting the government side in Syria. A lot of the rebels groups are Sunni radicals, such as ISIS and some Al Qaeda off-shoots. Obama played up to them, like he did with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

    If the radical Sunnis factions won in Syria, then the Christians, Alawites, Shia, Druids, and Kurds would be faced with potential genocide. This is a situation where Putin and Trump working together might be productive.

    Matt Harvey: 1-0, era 2.70, was solid in first start and had great stuff, coming off injury which resulted in surgery.

    Zach Wheeler: First start tonight since 2014, was out for Tommy John surgery.

    Robert Gsellman: First start is tomorrow, was solid in spring training.

    He was concerned about McConnell for a whole year here against a raving dingbat who lost by 15.

    – After the 2014 election ended, McConnell’s campaign manager, Josh Holmes, was interview on Louisville TV. He told reporters McConnell’s own polling showed he led Grimes by just 4 points with 9 days to go. Like many races around the country, it broke open in the last week. That doesn’t mean the race still wasn’t close for most of 2014.

    Wobbie IS a clown.

    – This is over the top. It was a close race, polling wise, for much of the 2014 campaign season. Josh Holmes, his campaign manager said so on local TV here. And in case anyone is wondering, Josh Holmes is one of the rising stars in Republican campaigns. In 2024, he’ll be running a presidential primary campaign. Scott Jennings, who ran a super pac for McConnell, said their polling was much the same. It was tight until the last 10 days or so.

    I look at it like a college basketball game where a highly ranked team leads a substantial underdog for most of the game by 4-8 points and then close on a 15-3 run to win by 17. The score makes it look like it was never close, but for 36 minutes of the game it was a close one.

    The proof is in the pudding.

    You were full of crap as we all predicted here, and Alison Dingbat (who you claimed was a formidable candidate) lost by 15.

    The whole year I said McConnell was going to win easily, exactly what happened.

  230. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Former Obama officials involved with Syria now are brutally criticizing Obama, supporting Trump’s actions in Syria.

    “Overnight, those who worked to convince the Obama administration to act against Assad — especially from Foggy Bottom — are watching Trump do what Obama would not: act decisively against the regime and send the message that more will not be tolerated. They sound as shocked as anyone that it was Trump who carried out the path they counseled.

    “This shows the moral depravity of the last administration,” said one former Obama administration official. “I am stunned.”

    “Many of us are pretty darned happy about this, ” said a second former administration official. “This is the action that many of us were hoping for years ago. Our hope though is that this was not an act in isolation, but a clear signal of the limits of our tolerance, and the restart of meaningful, actionable diplomacy to end Assad’s tenure in Syria and bring about a peaceful political transition.”

  231. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “The question is how come it took one chemical attack to change the heart of President Trump and move him to military action, while President Obama was so stone-hearted and resistant to the horrible images of tens of thousands of innocent victims ?”

  232. jason says:

    avent been around in months and come back just to see former Trump train riders dissing Trump and former NeverTrumpers praising him.”

    I said I would support Trump where I could. While Wobbie is still looking for the real Jeb killer and blaming Trump, I think he has done a lot of things right. Some stellar cabinet picks, Gorsuch, Syria are among them. I remain critical of his anti-free trade stance which will end of being very damaging in the long run.

    And it was obvious that those that thought Trump was really going to abandon US interests around the world were in for a shock of reality.

  233. janz says:

    Trump is in the infancy of his presidency. And, the power of the office, how his decisions have bcome so critical & far reaching, is rapidly dawning on him.

    As a private citizen he can look at dying children, feel sympathy for their circumstances, but know he can do little to help them. However, as a leader of a super power & the Free world, these children suddenly have become his responsibility, creating a moral duty of sorts, because he now occupies a position welding so much proactive power. That, IMO, can do a 180 change on a person’s perspective.

  234. jason says:

    Of course, Jason continues to believe that Tebow was solely pushed out of the NFL because he was religious.”

    No the fact he was not a scumbag hurt too.

  235. PresidentPaul! says:

    #242
    When does he start taking Syrian refugees?

    I thought Trump was trying to cut back on that.

  236. janz says:

    I’ve noticed in readers’ comments, on various blogs, that many Trump haters/skeptics are now warming to him, while former Trump accolyts seem to be going south because of his actions in Syria. Their remarks are similar to the ones Tina is posting.

    I personally, though, agree with the stance that Trump’s Syrian response was proportional and decisive, conveying his distaste for Syria’s inhumanity to it’s people without going overboard. I also think it will have a collateral benefit to other world tyrants, by giving them reason to pause before they decide to engage in their own terrorist or genocide miscbief.

  237. janz says:

    #244. I think Trump will put more energy into creating safe zones in Syria, or some other ME country, rather than bringing them over here.

  238. jason says:

    so Bunu, sorry you voted for Trump yet?

    He obviously thinks Ron an Rand Paul’s idea of a foreign policy is a joke.

  239. jason says:

    Havent been around in months”

    Was someone supposed to notice?

  240. jason says:

    Ok that was mean, I would take it back but Bitter might lodge an ethics complaint against me at the A-hole club.

    Beats Marco/Jeb

  242. dblaikie says:

    Once again, Trump proves he is Trump and does something no one expects. The guy amazes me. He begins the week by saying that Assad ruling is fine with him. And three days later here come the cruise missiles. Talk about flexible, talk about pragmatic to the extreme! But this unexpected move was brilliant.

    1. The country loves a successful cruise missile attack.
    2. China has been put on notice — this guy is going to be difficult.
    3. No one can say that Trump is in Russia’s back pocket.
    4. Susan Rice is once again proven to be a liar. In fact the whole Obama regime is shown to be a bunch of liars.
    5. The press look like a deer with it eyes caught in the headlights.

  243. NYCmike says:

    ” I remain critical of his anti-free trade stance which will end of being very damaging in the long run.”

    -Anti-free-trade could be damaging, IF his policies follow his talk, which must also be agreed upon by Congress.

    Of course, as I said throughout the campaign, Congress has a pretty big say in these matters, and the Scalia links above back me up on that point.

    jason has been slowly catching on to my Civics 101 lessons, so I applaud him for that…….MD has been absent of late……#relentless.

  244. NYCmike says:

    “Was someone supposed to notice?”

    🙂

    Albert, he got you there.

  245. Tina says:

    Trump still does not have his complete cabinet. This is a joke and why I am critical of Mitchie.

  246. jason says:

    -Anti-free-trade could be damaging, IF his policies follow his talk,”

    NYC is a genius.

    I agree, if Trump’s anti-trade agenda is not implemented it will won’t be damaging.

  247. jason says:

    So sorry to see you go… can you take Bunu with you?

    “I guess Trump wasn’t ‘Putin’s puppet’ after all, he was just another deep state/Neo-Con puppet,” wrote Paul Joseph Watson, a British vlogger who works at Alex Jones’s Infowars website. “I’m officially OFF the Trump train.”

  248. jason says:

    Trump still does not have his complete cabinet. This is a joke and why I am critical of Mitchie.”

    Wrong target. The Dems are using procedural delaying tactics to slow down the votes.

    It’s pointless but its all they got.

  249. Wes says:

    Tina acts as if Trump has a Senate majority like what Roosevelt, Harding, Roosevelt, and Johnson rather than a slender 52-46-2 majority to work with.

  250. Tina says:

    We.l the facts are facts This what cnbc indicatrd back in feb.

    http://www.cnbc.com/2017/02/24/trumps-cabinet-waiting-for-confirmation.html

    Sorry, he has done a terible job, like he usualky does.

  251. Tina says:

    When bj was sworn in, the drat contolled senate approved of all but one.

    Do the comparison.

  252. jason says:

    I guess there is no breaking anti-Trump news, Wobbie is not here yet.

  253. jason says:

    When bj was sworn in, the drat contolled senate approved of all but one.

    Do the comparison.”

    Apples and oranges. Rs did not obstruct every nominee.

  254. jason says:

    Dems are taking advantage of every procedural hurdle they can use for every nominee.

    In the end, they will all be confirmed.

    Btw, everyone has been confirmed except Labor (the first nominee withdrew) and Trade Rep and both are already out of committee. That’s 19/21.

    The truth is McConnell did a good job on the cabinet nominees considering the obstruction tactics.

  255. NYCmike says:

    “NYC is a genius.”

    -THANK YOU for recognizing my hard work.

    I look to learn something new every day, so I am NOT there yet, but moving towards that goal.

    Cheers!

  257. jason says:

    You are a lucky guy.

    In your case, the opportunities are endless!

  258. jason says:

    “so Bunu, sorry you voted for Trump yet?

    #248

    Beats Marco/Jeb”

    Lower expectations, huh?

  259. jason says:

    Tina is always looking for an opportunity to attack McConnell.

    In this case, it’s complete hogwash, he has actually done a great job.

    Like he usually does.

  260. NYCmike says:

    “Like he usually does.”

    -$20 trillion debt and counting….great job…..as usual….let’s complain more about shutting down the government.

  261. NYCmike says:

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/trump-expects-to-name-5-supreme-court-justices/article/2619660#.WOe1z7zgHc4.facebook

    -Cautiously optimistic about this article. If he picks more people like Gorsuch, then it is a win.

    BUT, if he wants to starts being bi-partisan, then watch out.

  262. NYCmike says:

    Story out that says airfield hit by cruise missiles is operational……waiting for confirmation…..

  263. Chicon says:

    271. Hello, Mikey. Much depends on when these vacancies occur, imo. I doubt he gets silly prior to re-election because he knows the court was a big reason people voted for him.

    Another thing is that the courts have already been a pain in his rear. I don’t think he wants activist judges tying his hands.

  264. lisab says:

    “Story out that says airfield hit by cruise missiles is operational……waiting for confirmation…..”

    not a surprise at all

    they just have to fill in holes on the airstrips to make it operational

    it is losing aircraft that hurt assad

  265. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Story out that says airfield hit by cruise missiles is operational”

    Don’t believe the runways were directly targeted, it was the technical infrastructure and some of the aircraft.

  266. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Agree with the comments praising McConnell. His strategy of refusing to allow a vote on Obama’s nomination, and “nuking” the filibuster worked.
    Its impact will be felt for decades. He is an unsung hero right now.

  267. Wes says:

    Ironically McConnell was a pretty feckless Minority Leader. He seems to have found himself as Majority Leader.

  268. jason says:

    $20 trillion debt and counting….great job…..as usual”

    Zzzzz… elections have consequences.

    Next time around don’t elect Obama.

  269. jason says:

    BUT, if he wants to starts being bi-partisan, then watch out.”

    Horrors….perish the thought!

    A dirty word for deadenders, like “compromise”.

  270. jason says:

    If you compromise and seek bi-partisan solutions, you might actually be able to govern and do something for the people of the country.

    Nah, you don’t want that…

  271. jason says:

    Don’t believe the runways were directly targeted, it was the technical infrastructure and some of the aircraft.”

    Correct, and runways are easily repaired anyway… plus you want to preserve them to a certain extent if you plan to use them for a later invasion….

    That is why the US did not destroy the international airport in Baghdad, it certainly came in handy later.

  272. Michael says:

    I never said I was totally opposed. I was more upset that we only had a day to access the situation without much time for anyone to identify if it was truly Assad or not. What’s done is done now however.

  273. Michael says:

    Also I see that MC is back….ugh

  274. jason says:

    I am glad NYC likes Gorsuch.

    Gorsuch is no hard core conservative, despite what the MSM wants to portray him as. He is a mainstream conservati

    If the Rs had not kept Garland off SCOTUS, I bet he would have gotten 80 votes.

    I don’t think he is a secret liberal as this article implies but this might be a fair description:

    Judge Gorsuch does not fit the mold of a rock-ribbed conservative. He is a smart, free-thinking, literary, independent who will be a good, and unpredictable justice. In some cases he will be liberal, some libertarian and in others conservative. But he is a fair man with a good sense of justice, just what we need on the Supreme Court”

    http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/the-judiciary/318565-could-court-pick-gorsuch-be-a-crypto-liberal-conservatives

  275. jason says:

    Also I see that MC is back….ugh”

    Just make sure you wear your “I support Western Civilization” pin….

  276. jason says:

    Ironically McConnell was a pretty feckless Minority Leader. He seems to have found himself as Majority Leader.”

    No Wes, a deadender would do a lot better.

    No, would not accomplish anything, but oh the headlines…

  277. jason says:

    McCain torches Rand Paul on Syria strikes when asked about his opposition…

    McCain dismissed Paul, a former presidential candidate and frequent voice of opposition, out of hand.

    “He doesn’t have any real influence in the United States Senate,” McCain said.

    Fortunately…

  278. Bitterlaw says:

    Ok that was mean, I would take it back but Bitter might lodge an ethics complaint against me at the A-hole club.

    Good thing Jason backed away from the comment. The probe of an unethical A-hole is a dirty business.

  279. Wes says:

    I never said the GOP had a better option than McConnell from 2007 to 2013, Jason. I just pointed out he was largely ineffectual in his role. It was not till late 2013 when McConnell started becoming a credible Leader. He returned to his roots as a shrewd take-no-prisoners wheeler and dealer as it were at that time. He’s continued to improve since as Majority Leader and has consistently outmaneuvered both Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer–each known as a shrewd political opponent.

    Too bad the current incarnation of Mitch McConnell was available as NRSC Chair from 1997 to 2000 and as Senate Floor Leader from 2007 to 2013.

  280. Wes says:

    I remember when Deadenders were absolutely determined to take McConnell out in 2014. Fortunately he refused to be rattled and defeated Bevin decisively in the primary ahead of shepherding in a GOP majority in the Senate.

    Given the near certainty Republicans will retain the Senate next year, McConnell is likely yo go down as the longest-serving GOP Senate Majority Leader in history, breaking Henry Cabot Lodge’s record from the 1920s.

  281. NYCmike says:

    “If you compromise and seek bi-partisan solutions, you might actually be able to govern and do something for the people of the country.
    Nah, you don’t want that…”

    -No, you don’t want compromise, WHEN SPEAKING ABOUT JUDGES, which I was clearly doing, thank you very much, exactly BECAUSE it would be better for the country.

  282. Tina says:

    Wes, i concur, he seems to have found his footing a bit in the last 2 years, after being a doormat.

    I hope it continues and hope that ryan improves. He just does not seem to be a credible leader.

  283. NYCmike says:

    “Fortunately he refused to be rattled and defeated Bevin decisively in the primary ahead of shepherding in a GOP majority in the Senate.”

    -What Wes really meant to say:

    “Fortunately, he took a primary challenge SERIOUSLY, as opposed to a couple of other incumbents, and actually had an address in his home state. Also, Matt Bevin is showing himself to be a pretty good Governor.”

  284. Tina says:

    Btw, mark levine does a funny impersonation of mitchie.

  285. Tina says:

    Gertting gorsuch through helped, but the iowa senator grassley deserves a great deal of the credit. At least we are winning again and trump had his best week in office so far.

    Where are the polls?

  286. Wes says:

    289 should say unavailable rather than available.

  287. NYCmike says:

    “Gorsuch is no hard core conservative, despite what the MSM wants to portray him as. He is a mainstream conservati”

    -Neither was Scalia, and neither is Alito or Thomas.

    They actually look at what the law says, as opposed to making up stuff as they go along.

  288. Wes says:

    Don’t forget Bevin wouldn’t be Governor had he not improved also, Mike, and gotten McConnell to do the yeomsn’s work in getting voters Bevin desperately needed to the polls.

  289. NYCmike says:

    As long as we agree McConnell took the primary fight seriously, unlike others **cough cough** Lugar**cough cough**.

  290. NYCmike says:

    CCC

  291. Wes says:

    Of course, Mike, when an incumbent Senator loses touch with his state, his primary challenger must be a credible candidate. Bevin was not credible in 2014 but became so a year later. Mourdock was never credible and proved that in spades just two weeks before doing his Hindenburgh impersonation against Donnelly.

  292. NYCmike says:

    Ok, have a nice day!

    To Michael, there is a McDonalds in Pomeroy, Ohio that serves McD’s Pizza. Take a road trip and report back. Wear your salmon-colored coat.

  293. Wes says:

    How’d taking Lugar out in the primary work out for you, Mike?

    Senator Donnelly must send you Christmas cards thanking you for your shortsightedness.

  294. NYCmike says:

    “Mourdock was never credible”

    -As an elected statewide official, that makes little sense. His error after the primary was not expected.

  295. jason says:

    Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, two warring senior White House aides, had a bury-the-hatchet meeting ordered by President Donald Trump, after arriving at Mar-a-Lago this week.”

    Wobbie hardest hit.

  296. Wes says:

    He led Donnelly by slender margins only before shifting the race solidly to his opponent. Hoosiers were never fully sold on him. He gave them reason to be sold on his opponent all on his own.

  297. Tina says:

    I do not understand the bannon thing. He was pictured at every major event, from syria strike to the china president meeting.

    I told the jebot to trust the direct source bannon rather unnamed source.

  298. Wes says:

    Mike calls saying God intends women to become pregnant by rape a simple error.

    How quaint.

  299. Tina says:

    The unnamed source are generalky unreliable, especially if mslsd, cnn. Etc. are reporting them. This includes mika,joe scarfarce.

  300. NYCmike says:

    “How’d taking Lugar out in the primary work out for you, Mike?”

    -60% of Indiana Republicans had good reason. Things don’t always go as you want them to. We’ll get Donnelly next year.

  301. Wes says:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Senate_election_in_Indiana,_2012

    Mourdock never led Donnelly by more than five in a state Obama had quit contesting.

    As I said, not a credible candidate.

  302. Wes says:

    50+% of Indianans had good reason to vote against Mourdock. I’d rather win both the general and the primary.

    That’s just my thinking though.

    In NBC interview Clinton discusses explains why she lost:

    “While Clinton said there were “lots of contributing factors” to her failure to secure the nation’s highest office, she called Russia’s interference the “weaponization of information.”

    In simple terms, “weaponization of information” means: “They spilled the beans by making public my actually E-mails and showing how big of a liar I was.” Those dastardly Russians. Who ever thought they would use truth as a weapon.

  305. lisab says:

    Don’t believe the runways were directly targeted, it was the technical infrastructure and some of the aircraft.
    ——————-
    yes, and that is the only thing that would keep an. airfield from being operational

    that is why it is no surprise the airfield is operational.

    the only targets worth hitting would be the planes

  306. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    316. Believe there were also some Russian planes on a different part of the airbase, which the U.S. did not hit. As a courtesy to the Russians, imagine the U.S. wanted to leave them a working runway to move them.

    “Philip Giraldi, former CIA officer and Director of the Council for the National Interest, says that “military and intelligence personnel,” “intimately familiar” with the intelligence, say that the narrative that Assad or Russia did it is a “sham,” instead endorsing the Russian narrative that Assad’s forces had bombed a storage facility. Giraldi’s intelligence sources are “astonished” about the government and media narrative and are considering going public out of concern over the danger of worse war there. Giraldi also observes that the Assad regime had no motive to do such a thing at this time.”

  322. Bitterlaw says:

    Of course it was.

    A deadender train wreck looking for a place to happen.

    And it happened.

  331. Bitterlaw says:

    I have never voted for a challger over an incumbent in a primary.

  332. Bitterlaw says:

    I figure that even an incumbent who sucks is better than the challenger for one reason. They know how to defeat a Democrat or they would not be an incumbent.

    “McCain said he did speak “almost daily” to National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, however.”

  334. jason says:

    I have never voted for a challger over an incumbent in a primary.”

    Bitter, deadenders have the right to deliver the seat to liberal Democrats.

    I read it here at HHR.

  335. jason says:

    I interpreted challger as challenger.

    But if Bitter meant call girl that depends….

  336. jason says:

    The McCain white house?”

    So that means Bunu voted for McCain for President?

    Who knew?

    Poor Bunu was bound to be disappointed one way or the other.

    Heh…

  341. Wes says:

    Bitter, Jason, NYCMike thinks revealing oneself as a stonecold misogynist with an absolutely appalling comment about rape and pregnancy is simply an “error.” You just can’t reason with those willing to downplay or excuse such offensive statements.

  342. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – GFY. I have never once defended those comments. They defined him as a Deadender and I knew he was doomed. GFY again.

  343. Robbie says:

    I see Lawrence O’Donnell and others at MSNBC have decided to go with the “fire can’t melt steel” view on the Syrian missile attacks. Geesh. I genuinely can’t understand why the first reaction of so many people, on either side of the spectrum, is to suspect a conspiracy.

  344. Wes says:

    What the hell are you talking about, Bitter?

    Maybe you should look up the rules of the English language and read what I said again.

    Here, I’ll help you out:

    I started off with “Bitter, Jason…”

    That is direct address, meaning I was speaking directly to you.

    Thrn I said “NYCMike thinks…”

    The combination of a subject and singular verb should have told you I was indeed using a singular subject. In this case, Mike was the subject as I was referring to a statement of his from upthread.

    How you can pass a bar examination without understanding the basic rules of English grammar is quite beyond me.

  346. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    He made an error in how he spoke about his beliefs about the world, about how he believes God’s hand is in everything that happens. It is only an offensive statement if you think he is evil, or if you think GOD is evil.

    I don’t defend those comments, but I do defend the man, in the sense that he did not mean to harm, impugn, or enslave any person of the opposite sex.

    Your continued rantings about the subject show more about your own issues regarding women than about Mourdock.

  347. Robbie says:

    It’s Masters Sunday. That “trumps” everything.

  348. NYCmike says:

    “5 minutes ago”

    -Heh.

    Robbie just had to get it out there!

  349. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    Do you massage yourself? Your arms sound like they are flailing about.

  350. NYCmike says:

    The Masters is on…..totally forgot about it.

  351. Wes says:

    Really, Mike?

    I guess I should give you a grammar lesson as I just did Bitter.

    Here’s Mourdock’s statement complete and unedited:

    I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that’s something God intended to happen.”

    Now let’s break it down:

    “I think…”

    This is a standard subject-verb combination, this one generally followed by a lengthy thought as it is here.

    “…even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape…”

    Here, we have an adverbial dependent clause beginning with “when” and ending in “rape” offset by an adverbial “even,” meaning “including” in this context.

    “…that is something…”

    This is the beginning of the main part of the noun dependent clause following the verb “think.” English has the concept of antecedents for pronouns. In this case, “that” is the pronoun. We then have to seek out the antecedent to see what “that” is. There is no specific noun preceding the subject of the noun dependent vlause. However, directly preceding it is the previously mentioned adverbial clause beginning with “when” and ending in “rape.” That is the only available antecedent given within the sentence; therefore the adverbial clause must be what “that” is.

    We then close with “God intended.”

    In this instance, this short clause is an adjective clause describing the predicate nominative (“something”) of the dependent noun clause.

    Predicate nominatives rename subjects; therefore, the predicate nominative is in fact the subject.

    Thus, applying the rules of the English language to his statement, I can conclude Mourdock meant exactly what he said in a meandering way:

    God intends pregnancy to result from rape.

    Now try to dispute my logic in actually deconstructing what he said and applying the rules of the langusge to it.

  352. Bitterlaw says:

    Delicate Flower- GFY again. You started with Bitter, jason, NYC thinks. That can be read as a series of people who share a thought. If you were as smart as you think you are, starting the sentence with “Bitter/jason – NYC thinks” would have more clear.

  353. NYCmike says:

    The website for The Masters is great! Lots of info, videos, easy to use….they really know how to do things.

  354. Tina says:

    I hope the neocons are not taking over. Prepare for more boots on the ground in syria. Very disappointing when mcamnesty and goober are leading this.

  355. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    I am going to church at high noon. I will say an extra prayer for you, that you find peace regarding your past actions with women.

  356. Wes says:

    You started this conversation, Mike. I just threw the misogynist bastard’s own words back in your face.

    As for whether or not God is evil, your own Bible has Him brag about creating it:

    Isaiah 45:7King James Version (KJV)

    7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    Those, like Mourdock’s, are your God’s own words. That makes it much easier for me not to have any time for Christianity.

  357. Wes says:

    You do know “thinks” is a singular verb while I had three names up there, Bitter. Anyone who made it past first grade grammar knows verbs ending in “s” are singular rather thsn plural in nature, thus leaving no ambiguity as to my statement.

    Obviously first-grade grammar is too high a bar for Pennsylvania attorneys though.

  358. Wes says:

    In other words, when faced with the application of grammatical rules to Mourdock’s statement, Mike gives up on trying to defend it.

    Good to know.

  359. NYCmike says:

    As I stated already “I don’t defend those comments, but I do defend the man, in the sense that he did not mean to harm, impugn, or enslave any person of the opposite sex.”

    -Wes,

    Try to keep up.

    I will pray for you and your issues with women.

  360. Tina says:

    Ok, tillerson says no regime change in syria, whike sarah oalin 2.0 is for regime change

    Wtf

  361. Wes says:

    No, I agree. Mourdock didn’t try to harm, impugn, or enslave anyone. He just said God intends pregnancy to result from rape. That belief is right there in his comments as I demonstrated above.

  362. Wes says:

    Tina, how is Nikki Haley “Palin 2.0”? Haley has no aspirations to be a reality star and didn’t resign from office 2 1/2 years into her first term to cash in on her new-found celebrity.

  363. Bitterlaw says:

    You do realize that HHR is filled with typos so it was possible that it would be possible to believe you added an extra s to think in error.

    I feel sorry for you, Wes. So jealous of somebody admitted to practice law in 2 states as well as Feferal districts. Go rub somebody.

  364. Wes says:

    You’re an attorney, right, Bitter?

    Part of your job is asking questions, I believe.

    Maybe in the future you should display some modicum of lawyerly ability and ask a question rather than looking like a buffoon by misinterpreting a clearly stated comment.

  365. Tina says:

    She is dumb and obviously not on page. If she goes rogue, she needs to go.

    Will there be a chapter about defending a rapist?

  367. Wes says:

    That’s what I would have done anyway if I thought someone was accusing me of a stance I didn’t take even though internal evidence from the cited statement said otherwise.

  368. Tina says:

    Wes – your post was not as clear as you believe. I showed you why. Own it.

  372. Tina says:

    The hill is the source for mcamnestys comments, which were taken from statements that he made on one of the sunday shows today.

  373. Wes says:

    So you were too stupid to either interpret what I said correctly or ask if I in fact meant you said something I never accused you of.

    Somehow I’m in the wrong for that.

    Maybe you should take your own advice and own your idiocy.

  374. Wes says:

    In the Bitterlaw universe, a subject-single verb combination means a plural subject.

    That’s good to know for future reference.

  375. Bitterlaw says:

    In WesWorld, when you want to make a statement to 2 people about a third person, you just list them separated by commas. I already explained the better way to do it but Delicate Flower can’t understand it.

    The rest of HHR can judge this dispute.

  376. Wes says:

    Bitter, had I wanted to accuse you, Jason, and Mike of what Mike said, then I would have worded it as follows:

    “Bitter, Jason, and NYCMike THINK…”

    As it stands, I worded it as follows:

    “Bitter, Jason, NYCMike thinkS…”

    Surely you can see the difference in structure and intent between the two statements. Then again you do think George W. Bush was a great President, so obviously I’m expecting too much of your cognitive abilities.

    Mea culpa.

  377. jason says:

    I am not going to get into this fight, I understood wes was not saying I agree with NYC, he knows better than that. But I can see how Bitter could be offended if he interpreted it that way.

    As far as Mourdock he was a deadender turkey, a horrible candidate, his problem was not just his unfortunate comment. It was the whole package. Thank God he has never been heard from since.

    At the time, I stated I understood what he meant, I didn’t pile on, but he was a sorry mess of a candidate.

  378. jason says:

    I have no problem with regime change if Assad is the one changed. I understand the problem of adequate replacement but this guy has got to go.

    I am not advocating a military operation just to do that but neither is McCain or Graham, that is Tina’s hyperbole. But if it happens, good riddance.

    They are supportive of Trump’s actions? Good, so am I.

  379. jason says:

    Then again you do think George W. Bush was a great President, so obviously I’m expecting too much of your cognitive abilities.”

    I also think GWB was a fine president, so I will take a few points on the cognitive ability hit lest Bitter tries to hog all of them.

  380. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – It could have been worded more clearly. Commas matter.

    However, we should move on to something less contentious like Nathan Bedford Forrest being a war criminal.

  381. Wes says:

A very small portion of the people who have been slaughtered in Syria have been slaughtered by chemical weapo

    The middle part is mcamnestys quote

  403. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Saw a list recently of what someone felt where Trump’s accomplishments over his first 100 days. Have adapted it and here is my list:

    1.)Gorsuch appointed to the Supreme Court, preserving a conservative majority;

    2.)Syria bombing — which showed the world the U.S. is not longer emasculated:

    3.)Approved the Dakota Access and Keystone pipelines;

    4.)Substantially reduced the amount of illegal immigration;

    5.) Removed by executive order a large amount of red tape and anti-business regulations.

    Anyone remember what were Obama’s accomplishments in his first 100 days?

  404. Tina says:

    The jebots, concerned trolls, and never trumpeters

    2015-16: “Trump is a loose cannon, he listens to no one!”

    Late 2016: “Trump is dangerous, he doesn’t listen to his advisers!”

    Late 2016: “Trump is a puppet of Putin!”

    Early 2017: “Steve Bannon is dangerous and controls Trump, he’s running the WH!”

    Today: “Jarod Kushner is dangerous and controls Trump, he’s running the WH!”

    Lol,

  405. Tina says:

    This week is jareds turn since bannon is still there.

    I am sure there again willl be anonymous “sources”.

  406. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “He and goober want a oarge scale ground forces in syria. Blow up the me.”

    We already have 1,000 troops fighting in Syria; isn’t that a large scale ground force? Trump increased it. Americans are going to be involved in the attack on Raqqua — along with the Kurds, who for all intense purposes are now an appendage of the American military.

  407. Tina says:

    No, that is not a large scale force. He wants something like iraq all over.

  408. Tina says:

    The 1000 are just advisors too.

  409. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “The 1000 are just advisors too.”

    They are in combat and participating on the front line in Mosul, and with the Kurds. Also the American air force is bombing in support of the offensives by Iraqi & Kurds in Mosul and northern Syria. Yes, the intent is to let the locals do the majority of the fighting, but we are directly involved in the fighting also. Tha bombs falling in Mosul supporting the Iraq troops are from mostly American planes.

  410. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Trump’s “Cabinet of Generals” including “Mad Dog” Mattis and McMaster, are running things. For all intense purposes the Kurds are our military in Syria & Iraq, so we do not need more American troops.

    Where I live there is a very large Kurdish, Assyrian and Iraqi Chaldean population — who have become very supportive of Trump.

  411. Robbie says:

    I see Tina’s got her tinfoil hat on this afternoon.

  412. Robbie says:

    Jordan Spieth doesn’t have it today. Darn. I always pull for him.

    #413 Funny, no mention of the healthcare epic failure, muslim ban epic failure, energizing the Dems like never before. Why not mention that?

    “Anyone remember what were Obama’s accomplishments in his first 100 days??”

    OH I dunno, how about saving the world from a global depression perhaps?

    WORST.PRESIDENT.EVAHHHHHH

  414. Tina says:

    They are primarily advisors, even if there is a mew request for more men.

    The new troops, if sent, would be focused on supporting Kurdish and Arab fighters in northern Syria battling the Islamic State. Under the plan, the added American forces would act primarily as advisers, offering expertise on bomb disposal and coordinating air support for the coalition of Kurds and Arabs, also known as the Syrian Democratic Forces.

    About 500 U.S. Special Operations forces are already in Syria operating alongside the SDF, in addition to about 250 Rangers and 200 Marines. The new U.S. troops, if approved, would probably come from parts of both the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit — a flotilla of ships loaded with 2,200 Marines that is now steaming toward the region — and the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, from which 2,500 troops are headed to Kuwait. These conventional troops would supplement the Special Operations forces already on the ground and operate much like their counterparts fighting in the Iraqi city of Mosul.

  415. Tina says:

    I see that the kos kiddo is out again

  416. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “OH I dunno, how about saving the world from a global depression perhaps?”

    Didn’t Bernie Sanders run in opposition to Obama’s economic policies? They seem to be discredited. Clinton ran away from them. Believe the economic policies addressing the economy in Obama’s first 100 days were enacted prior to him assuming office.

    The health care issue is still being discussed, and will be addressed. Its a complex issues, certain is not on a list of Trump accomplishments for the first 100 days.

    Illegal immigration over the southwest border was reported to have declined 61% since Trump took office. Increased enforcement is working; despite attempts by leftists to block his policies.

    Again, the question was what specifically were Obama’s accomplishments during his first 100 days. Am sure there are some, but cannot think of them off-hand.

  417. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “About 500 U.S. Special Operations forces are already in Syria operating alongside the SDF”

    That’s a combat role. If it makes you more comfortable calling them advisers, then do it.

  418. Proud Obamacon says:

    OH I know you want to downplay how important it was to save the world from a global depression. I wonder why? ? ? Loooosah!

    But ok, how about laying the groundwork for getting 20million uninsured people insured? Or how about saving the auto industry? yeah, just small potatoes right? Idiot!

  419. Proud Obamacon says:

    The Pussy Grabber was supposedly moved and touched by photos of the Syrians getting gassed. Good to know, so can we let these poor people into the US now? Or will he keep them shut out to be gassed again by Assad?

    LOOOOOSAH. IN. CHIEF

  420. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Did an internet search on Obama’s first 100 days, in his defense he stated that it was his first 1,000 days that mattered.

    “Obama stated that he should not be judged by his first hundred days: “The first hundred days is going to be important, but it’s probably going to be the first thousand days that makes the difference.”

    “The first piece of legislation signed by Obama was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act on January 29, which promoted fair pay regardless of gender, race, or age. Lilly Ledbetter joined Obama and his wife, Michelle, as he signed the bill, fulfilling his campaign pledge to nullify Ledbetter v. Goodyear.”

    “On February 18, 2009, Obama announced that the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan would be bolstered by 17,000 new troops by summer.”

    “On March 10, 2009, Barack Obama, in a meeting with the New Democrat Coalition, told them that he was a “New Democrat”, “pro-growth Democrat”, “supports free and fair trade”, and “very concerned about a return to protectionism.”

    “On April 5, 2009, Barack Obama promoted the goal of a nuclear-free world.”

  421. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    430. “Good to know, so can we let these poor people into the US now.”

    How many millions of people do you want to let in 1,000,000, or say 10,000,000 million? Have you been watching the repeated acts of terrorism by immigrants in Europe — how would you prevent this?

  422. Proud Obamacon says:

    Oh ok, so we’ll just let them stay in Syria and get slaughtered. I guess you were not moved after all and neither was the Pussy Grabber.

    BTW, can we bomb Egypt now that all these Coptic Christians were killed. Was the Groper touched and moved by this atrocity?

  423. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    433. Actually Trump took action to prevent further use of poison gas. Even former Obama foreign policy advisers praised him, and condemned Obama’s lack of action.

    Obama claimed he had the poison gas removed from Syria. You must have read the Susan Rice quote from a few months ago. Obama’s lying about him getting the poison gas removed is one of the most disgraceful things he did in office.

    So is your solution for Egypt to allow unlimited immigration from there to the U.S.?
    Trump recently met with the Egyptian president. Lets not forget that Obama pandered to the radical Muslim Brotherhood, which often condones anti-Christian actions.

    All your doing is providing proof of how bad a president Obama was.

  424. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    433: Hey Obamacon:

    Since you are such a supporter of Obama, do you support the economic policies he endorsed in his first 100 days?

    “On March 10, 2009, Barack Obama, in a meeting with the New Democrat Coalition, told them that he was a “New Democrat”, “pro-growth Democrat”, “supports free and fair trade”, and “very concerned about a return to protectionism.”

    You have to choose, either Obama’s or Bernie’s economic policies. Which is it?

  425. Proud Obamacon says:

    I’m fine with Obama’s policies. They are what we needed in 2009 and saved us from disaster. I know you don’t think so, but facts are still facts.

    As for Bernie, well times change and let’s see what the future holds. The Groper in Chief is doing a great job driving this country towards Bernie’s way of thinking, by the way LOLLL

  426. jason says:

    I am glad Obama invested all his political capital ramming Obamacare through without ONE Republican vote.

    With the momentum he had and the Rs in shock and awe, he could have built a bi-partisan coalition and gotten at least 80% of his entire agenda.

    Instead he listened to Pelosi and Reid “you won, do what you want” and lost his congressional majority and governed by decree for 6 years, some of which will be reversed.

    He cost his party countless senate seats, house seats, governorships, state legislatures, state executive positions, all kind of down ballot losses.

    He did a lot of damage. But it could have been a lot worse.

  427. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    In fairness, Proud Obamacon, I had no use for President Bush’s economic policies either, and its interesting to see that both parties had their establishment politicians rejected in 2016.

    Sure they were. Rs were cowed and shocked and awed. Even the WSJ and NRO. Obama won the election promising to be post partisan and bi-partisan. He had the opportunity to follow through. Instead he went with the “I won, screw you” and we lucked out.

    He gave the Republicans the rallying cry to rise from the ashes and get it together and from then on the Democrats got decimated.

    It didn’t have to happen. I am glad it did.

    BS, from day one the Repuglicans made it clear that they were only interested in obstructing and you know this. Your sexual fantasy, McTurtle, even came out and announced that his goal was to make Pres. Obama a one term president. You’re truly a fool LOL

  437. jason says:

    Bunu, give up.

    Trump already showed he is not going to be an isolationist in foreign policy, the Paulbots can whine all they want.

  438. jason says:

    ObamaCON is a liar and a fraud.

    McConnell made that comment OVER TWO YEARS after Obama was elected.

    October 23, 2010… and in context.

    NJ: What does this mean now?
    McConnell: We need to be honest with the public. This election is about them, not us. And we need to treat this election as the first step in retaking the government. We need to say to everyone on Election Day, “Those of you who helped make this a good day, you need to go out and help us finish the job.”

    N.J.: What’s the job?
    McConnell: The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.

    NJ: Does that mean endless, or at least frequent, confrontation with the president?
    McConnell: If President Obama does a Clintonian backflip, if he’s willing to meet us halfway on some of the biggest issues, it’s not inappropriate for us to do business with him.

    NJ: What are the big issues?
    McConnell: It is possible the president’s advisers will tell him he has to do something to get right with the public on his levels of spending and [on] lowering the national debt. If he were to heed that advice, he would, I imagine, find more support among our conference than he would among some in the Senate in his own party. I don’t want the president to fail; I want him to change. So, we’ll see. The next move is going to be up to him”

  439. jason says:

    Obama gave up on bi-partisan and post-partisan the first day in office, he never meant it.

    Lucky for those who aren’t Marxists.

    Got to IHOP to eat at 2 a.m., to bed by 3:30, still made it to church service this morning.

    House and Senate passed a budget, but everyone knows governor will veto because there were no tax increases passed.

    Walt gave advice.
    Nobody took it.

  446. Proud Obamacon says:

    Nice job avoiding my question, douche. Which Repugs were going to work with Pres. Obama? Well? Bueller!!!?

  447. Wes says:

    Obama actively campaigned on defeating Republicans and accused them of being racist, sexist, bigoted, and classist; yet PO thinks they should have worked with them.

    Maybe if Obama hadn’t been an arrogant ass who ordered congressional Dems to steamroll the GOP at every turn they mighht have worked with him rather doing a much better job than Dems are currently doing against Trump in reflexively opposing Obama.

  448. Wes says:

    By the way, Republicans made proposals to the AHCA bill, but Obama didn’t even give them lip service.

    Naturally PO is po’d to know Republicans were recalcitrant toward an egotistical Papa Doc Duvalier wannabe who actively stoked flames of hatred against them.

    He had Rs over a barrel. They were on the ropes.

    Thanks to Obama listening to the Pelosi and Reid type morons, he squandered a great opportunity.

    Hallelujah!

  453. Wes says:

    You know what Presidents didn’t squander high popularity ratings?

    Bill Clinton and the legendary Ronald Reagan.

    Obama should have taken notes.

  454. jason says:

    A former county supt. of schools (from near Charleston–and a good choice) who was appointed by the governor less than 2 months ago to fill one of the slots on the WV State School Board. He has now resigned from the WV Bd. of Ed because his elderly mother has become suddenly ill.

    That leaves a vacancy on the WV State School Board to finish out that 9 year appointed term.
    ******************************************
    There are requirements that there has to be 3 on the board coming from each of the 3 CDs in WV. The guy who stepped down lived in WV’s CD 2.
    So does Walt….

    Of the 9 on the Board, no more than 5 can be of same political party.
    I think the guy who resigned is an R.
    so is Walt….

    Two of the 9 on the State Bd of Ed are former WV legislators.
    so is Walt…

    Walt fantasizes that there is a chance Gov. Justice may suddenly decide to appoint Walt.

  468. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    464. Which Repugs were going to work with Pres. Obama? He had Rs over a barrel. They were on the ropes.”

    Yes, Obama had they over the barrel. He could issue executive orders and circumvent Congress; he seemed never to have realized that the next president could repeal all his executive orders, which Trump is doing.

    Obama’s legacy is he now can use his executive orders to line the bottom of his bird cage.

  500. Wes says:

    Walking Dead and Game of Thrones are the consummate bandwagon shows:

    Essentially a bunch of people who wouldn’t know the source material if hit on the head with it watch the shows and declare them awesome.

    I refuse to jump on bandwagons even though I am fully familiar with the source material for each and was well before either show premiered and created a mindnumbed armada of bandwagon jumpers.

  501. Wes says:

    If ever presented with a Walking Dead graphic novel, Bitter and Jason would say “Hey, kindling!” and toss it in the fire, being completely unaware of its connection to the show.

  502. Wes says:

    I’ve been unable to find the numbers, but apparently Claire McCaskill has the following things working against her:

    1) She’s down double digits in favorability in a new poll.

    2) Republicans have released audio of McCaskill’s directly appealing to Sanders voters at a recent fundraiser and admitting to helping Akin win so she could beat him.

    You’re not going to be able to ratf*** your way out of this one, Claire.

    GOP starts 2018 at +1.

  503. Phil says:

    Wes, any idea what kind of bench we have in Mo to go against Senator Sky Queen? I mean, other than whack jobs like Akin?

  504. Wes says:

    Quite a few, Phil.

    Ann Wagner seems to have right of first refusal,

    Were she to decline, as seems unlikely, Sam Graves is next in line. Why Graves didn’t run in 2012 when he could have defeated both Akin and McCaskill I don’t think I’ll ever know. He had been openly musing about a Senate race for a decade only to let Akin piss away a golden opportunity. It makes no sense.

  505. jason says:

    I am a confirmed Walking Dead bandwagon jumper.

    Best show in the last 10 years, even beats Duck Dynasty.

    As far as MO, we should be able to beat Sky Queen although there is always the chance NYC will find a deadender with the “right” to lose to her.

  506. Wes says:

    Of course the MOGOP could fulfill NYCMike’s political wet dream and have Dick ghe Misogynist Bastard Mourdock move to Missouri to win the primary and say something moronic about rpe late in the race.

  511. NYC says:

    Of course the MOGOP could fulfill NYCMike’s political wet dream and have Dick ghe Misogynist Bastard Mourdock move to Missouri to win the primary and say something moronic about rpe late in the race.”

    I would NEVER invite Mourdock.

    Especially since COD is available.

  512. NYC says:

    Bingo.

  513. NYC says:

    Great morons think alike.

  514. Barrett says:

    O’Donnell said goofy things. On the flipside – Akin and Mourdock said downright stupid things.

    This is true. My teenage son insisted I watch an episode. I resisted for weeks, finally relented.

    Been hooked ever since.

  516. jason says:

    COD is a small time con woman who says goofy things.
    A real low life.

    Akin and Mourdock are morons, but at least had some qualification for office.

  517. Robbie says:

    Former Senator John Danforth released a letter encouraging Missouri’s new Attorney General to run for Senate.

    http://www.kansascity.com/news/politics-government/article143728584.html

    Mitch McConnell, echoing a point I have made recently, warns Trump’s low approval rating can hurt Republican 2018 chances in the Senate.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2619857

  518. Wes says:

    They all accomplished the exact same end: helping Democrats win Senate seats Republicans otherwise would have won.

  519. Robbie says:

    Republicans would have at least 57 Senate seats were it not for the deadenders of 2010 and 2012.

    Norton – CO
    Castle – DE
    Louden – NV
    Lugar – IN
    Brunner – MO

  520. Wes says:

    I’m not sure Republicans would have beaten Reid after Porter declined the race.

    However, Maggie Hassan in NH is Senator precisely because an NYCMike-approved Deadender ran in the general last year for the express purpose of helping Hassan unseat Kelly Ayotte.

  521. Wes says:

    To be fair, Deadenders alone didn’tt cost Republicans the chance to maximize Senate gains:

    1) Although a great NRSC Chair, Jerry Moran never put any resources into polling VA to see Warner’s vulnerability and help Gillespie win.

    2) When Carl Levin retired, Republicans failed to recruit Mike Rogers, who would have defeated Gary Peters but decided to become a talk radio host.

    3) In 2012, rather than get the then-enormously popular Bob McDonnell to seek Jim Webb’s Senate seat, the VAGOP rallied around former Senator George Macacawitz with predictable results.

  522. Robbie says:

    Trump and Pence have cut robo calls for the Republican in the Kansas special election. Looks like it might be a close one. If so, I think it speaks to the message McConnell is making about Trump’s approval rating in 2018.

  523. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    Why do you keep lying about the NH Senate race?

    I have no problem with primary challengers against incumbents, to make sure they keep in touch with their constituents, like McConnell, Roberts, McCain, Hatch ect are able to do.

    The ones who don’t deserve to lose. I don’t want to lose the General Election, but that is on the incumbent.

    As for New Hampshire, do you deny that the guy who took votes from Ayotte was not a primary challenge, but an independent/libertarian bid, that I have no control over?

  524. NYCmike says:

    “3) In 2012, rather than get the then-enormously popular Bob McDonnell to seek Jim Webb’s Senate seat, the VAGOP rallied around former Senator George Macacawitz with predictable results.”

    -The main issue there are many Republicans’ unwillingness to primary an incumbent…….isn’t that correct, Wes?

  525. Wes says:

    Nice copout in refusing to criticize Day for helping Hassan win, Mike. Clearly Ayotte wasn’t conservative enough for you as evidenced by your obsequious to even try to say Day is a f ucking idiot for what he did.

  526. Wes says:

    Allen wasn’t an incumbent in 2012, Mike. Maybe you should buy an Almanac and see what Senators VA had in 2012.

  527. NYCmike says:

    Sure, Wes.

    That is the same reasoning which says that “since someone hasn’t said modern-day slavery is evil TODAY, that must mean they are IN FAVOR of modern-day slavery”.

    You are utterly ridiculous!

  528. Wes says:

    How quaint.

    Mike projects his own shortcomings onto me.

  529. NYCmike says:

    Good catch, he was a retread.

  530. NYCmike says:

    Wes has a new word – “quaint”.

    Nice.

  531. Wes says:

    Look, Mike:

    Aron Day is a f ucking Deadender moron who helped a moonbat Democrat beat a perfectly acceptable Republican Senator.

    See, I can criticize Day for the f ucking idiot he is without whining about how I can’t control him because he decided to run on a line other than Republican last year.

  532. Wes says:

    Thst word is six letters long, Mike, so I’m not shocked you’re unfamiliar with it.

  533. Bitterlaw says:

    What Jason did with llamas in Peru is covered under the law of Peru.

    What he does with llamas here better comply with American law or he is a sick nf-er.

  534. Bitterlaw says:

  535. Robbie says:

    I’d like to see Mike Rogers, Tim Pawlenty, and Paul LePage (yes, I’m serious) pull the trigger and run in 2018. It puts huge pressure on Democrats and they won’t be able to adequately fund all of those races. I’d also like to see a better choice emerge in OH than Josh Mandel.

    Right now, I see five good pickups (IN, WV, MO, MT, and ND). With good choices, ten races could be winnable.

  536. Wes says:

    How about Bruce Poliquin rather than Paul LePage, Robbie?

  537. Robbie says:

    Wes says:
    April 10, 2017 at 6:09 pm
    How about Bruce Poliquin rather than Paul LePage, Robbie?

    – Would certainly be fine with me, but LePage, whatever you think of him, has quite a fiscal record and I think he fits working class ethos that has come to dominate Republican base.

  538. Robbie says:

    I Thin ME is a hidden gem in 2018. Angus King is not an Independent. He’s aliberal. If it can be turned into a three-way race, I like Republican chances.

  539. Robbie says:

    I would NOT encourage Barbara Comstock to run for Senate in 2018. I don’t think Kaine can be beaten unless Trump’s approval is approaching 60% and I don’t see that happening. I’d hate to see her torch her career in that race.

  540. Phil says:

    Comstock has a bright future if either Kaine or Warner decide to retire. She would be the favorite should one of them retire and a seat open up in Virginia. Doubt she could beat Kaine and Warner’s next election is in a presidential year making that uphill.

    She needs to do what the gal in WV did – take the easy road by waiting until the seat opens up and then waltz in.

  541. Wes says:

    I disagree, Robbie. I think Kaine showed vulnerability in the state last year as Hillary’s running mate. He couldn’t crack 50% as a Veep nominee in a state Trump had early on quit contesting. Meanwhile, Dems recruited a formidable challenger Comstock beat decisively in a Hillary-Kaine district, carrying counties Kaine must have to return to the Senate. If Trump is even a neutral factor next year, I think Comstock can beat Kaine.

  542. Wes says:

    Where did we get the idea that all presidential years are poison for Republicans?

    Did we not just see Republicans win 22 Senate seats, 6 gubernatorial races, 241 House seats, and the freaking presidency just a few months ago in a presidential year?

  543. Wes says:

    Actually, Phil, while Capito did win an open seat in 2014, Jay Rockefeller was her initial opponent–right up until a poll came out showing Capito would throttle him in a general election. Amazingly he quickly decided to spend more time with his family.

    The point is that Capito wasn’t waiting for an open seat but proved so formidable the sitting Senator bailed rather thzn lose to her as he had done to her father 42 years earlier.

  544. Chicon says:

    So far I haven’t noticed anyone (such as Wes) railing about how Obama lied about the removal of WMD’s from Syria. I thought it was established long ago that being wrong = lying…

  545. Chicon says:

    Of course, in this case, the intelligence services said they couldn’t verify the claims of BHO.

  546. Phil says:

    Ok, I didn’t realize Rockefeller announced his retirement AFTER Capito announced she was running. I had been thinking it was the other way around.

  547. PresidentPaul! says:

    http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/08/pf/college/new-york-free-tuition/index.html

    From the article:

    Starting this fall, undergraduate students who attend a State University of New York or City University of New York school will be eligible for the Excelsior Scholarship if their families earn no more than $100,000 a year. The income cap will lift to $110,000 next year and will reach $125,000 in 2019.

    Those eligible will pay nothing for tuition, which costs $6,470 annually at four-year schools and about $4,350 a year at community colleges. But they will still be on the hook for the cost of fees and room and board if they live on campus. Those other expenses can add up to $14,000 a year.

    GOP Leaders Dropping Border Wall Funds, Says Report

    http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2017/04/10/gop-leaders-dropping-border-wall-funds-says-report/


    House Democrats, along with a few House Republicans, are working around-the-clock to make sure funding for the estimated $12 billion border wall is not factored into the GOP budget, according to a report by The Hill.”

    idk why Trump won’t pledge to veto

  559. lisab says:

    lots of republican establishment types don’t want a wall

    at most they will support a “high tech” system that can be turned off easily and will be useless almost immediately

    you cannot turn off a wall.

    That’s why we need to defund the military and entire Federal government because we’re on a count down to destruction anyways along with crazed left as it is already.

  566. Bitterlaw says:

    I do not believe that most students are indoctrinated by liberal professors. I think the libs seem to be more prevalent because they seek attention. At a school with 20,000 students, you might get 1,000 students at a rally against Trump. The headline is not going to read “95% of students do not protest Trump.”

  567. NYCmike says:

    Cuomo is running for President, and the Republican-controlled N Y State Senate just gave him another arrow to use against Trump, Pence, or any other Republican nominee in 2020.

    All they want to do is get re-elected.

    The Republican Party should not be aligned with those breakaway Democrats in the Senate. They should figure out who to become a majority by crafting a platform which appeals to enough voters while maintaining certain principles of governing that are recognized by Republicans. All they are doing now is helping Cuomo look moderate, while pushing off more and more costs to current and future tax-payers in NY state.

  568. EML says:

    Cuomo cannot win a Democratic primary for president. The SJWs and BernieBros won’t allow it. He is just trying to head off a challenge from the left again. He lost 1/3 of the primary vote in 2014 against some nobody professor.

    I actually find myself being a little bit in favor of this now. My initial reaction was to be against it. I make too much money to qualify, not everyone should or needs to go to college, this will increase demand and increase costs, we can’t afford to do this…

    But, the provision inserted by the Republicans to require people to stay in the state for 4 years or else have to pay it back is a game changer. We are hemorrhaging people right now, and this might get people to stay. The tax revenues gained from having people stay who might otherwise leave will offset the costs (the bill pays for tuition costs only, about $4000-$6000 a year).

  569. NYCmike says:

    EML,

    Yes, that part may have been a “game changer” as you said, except for the fact that they are already trying to waive it.

    We shall see what happens.

    Full disclosure: My son will be eligible in 4 years at my current income for this benefit, and I will make sure to stay under it if need be. Nice thing about owning a business, compensation can come in different forms.

    In terms of national politics, the issue is already spreading to other states, so one more “FREE” thing for Dems and Republicans to try to get votes with.

  570. NYCmike says:

    And, not so sure about his inability to get the nomination for President. He is a much better candidate than Hillary, and will have none of the baggage she had.

  571. EML says:

    Trump and Pence have cut robo calls for the Republican in the Kansas special election. Looks like it might be a close one. If so, I think it speaks to the message McConnell is making about Trump’s approval rating in 2018.
    ==================================
    Wobbly once again proving his incompetence with any kind of thoughtful analysis. If TRUMP is the problem, then why would they bring TRUMP in instead of having Estes distance himself from Trump? You have to be pretty dumb to not be able to figure this out on your own.

    The problem in Kansas is the unpopularity of Gov. Brownback. Trump is not the problem here; this is a district he won by 30 points. Republicans are just trying to make sure that their base comes out and votes because Democrats sure will.

  572. EML says:

    And, not so sure about his inability to get the nomination for President. He is a much better candidate than Hillary, and will have none of the baggage she had.
    ==========================
    Like I said, he already had a challenge from his left in 2014 and the Democrats are just going to keep moving left. For as much as conservatives in the state like to criticize him for things like the SAFE Act, the reality is that we could do much, much worse. He has been fairly moderate on fiscal issues and doesn’t push the SJW baloney. His only chance in the Democratic primary is if he is the only non-SJW BernieBro in the field.

    Replying to @Nate_Cohn
    Day 12 of in-person early voting in GA-6 is R 47, D 39–highest turnout and best GOP day yet
    Over all, D 49, R 34 with 26717 ballots cast.

    Baker and Hogan are the current most popular Governors at 75% and 73% respectively.

    Chris Christie is at the bottom of the heap with 25%.

    I’m sure Bitter and Jason still think Christie would have been the best available candidate in 2016. This result indicates otherwise.
