Ossoff Stuck At 48% in GA-6

It appears Democrat Jon Ossoff is making absolutely no headway in getting over 50% in the 6th Congressional District in Georgia according to a new poll from Anzalone Liszt Grove Research.

US HOUSE – GEORGIA – CD6
Jon Ossoff (D) 48%
Karen Handel (R) 47%

This poll was done April 23-26 among 590 likely voters. What has to be scary for Democrats is this pollster is a left-leaning company who, according to the article, worked for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

    either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51%. Our country needs a good “shutdown” in September to fix mess!

  5. Robbie says:

    As far as the poll between Ossoff and Handel goes, it’s pretty devastating for Ossoff. His own campaign released a poll showing him just one point ahead and at the same level he got in the first round. Unless Handel drops dead, he’s lost.

    4 Trump’s threatening a veto? Where did you hear this?

    – He’s not threatening a veto of the current spending plan. His tweet was a reaction to the whining and complaining from conservative activists who weren’t happy about the spending deal the two sides cut this past weekend. So to placate them, Trump threatened in a tweet this morning to shutdown the government over the 2018 budget that’s due this October.

    What fun are debt ceiling increases without threats of government shutdown? They go together like PB and chocolate.

  15. Robbie says:

    I don’t have the link, but there’s an interesting story in the Federalist today by Mollie Hemingway about Heritage. Her sources contend Michael Needham maneuvered to get DeMint forced out after DeMint tried to rein in Needham and Heritage Action.

    I’m not a fan of DeMint, but, in a fight between DeMint and Needham, I’ll side with DeMint every time.

  16. Tina says:

    I do not take trumps threat seriously. Cite his full tweet. Not what hot air josh or the Jebot troll say.

  17. Tina says:

    And if he were to threaten seriously it would be for the fu 18 budget.

    This current five month spending bill is a joke.

    These will hurt trump long term and hurt Ryan short term.

  18. Robbie says:

    Tinfoil doesn’t read very well. In #9, I wrote that Trump’s threat was about the budget due in October for 2018.

  19. Tina says:

    The tweet is an indirect attack against Ryan.

    Seems like Ryan is losing control.

  21. Wes says:

    If Handel wins handily can we dismiss at least temporarily the idea that Dems will have a wave in 2018?

  22. Phil says:

    Yes, but only temporarily. The MSM won’t let go of it.

  23. Robbie says:

    Wes says:

    If Handel wins handily can we dismiss at least temporarily the idea that Dems will have a wave in 2018?

    – Tough to say. Republicans survived a few tough special elections in 2005 and early 2006 and thought it portended an ok environment for the 2006 midterms. When Democrats held on Jack Murtha’s seat in May 2010, many thought it was a sign there wasn’t a massive wave building in 2010 either.

    In both cases though, the midterms were really bad for the party in power and the result corresponded well with the current president’s job approval rating.

    Special elections are, well, special. If nothing else, a Handel win and sweeping all four seats will at least signal “the resistance” has a lot of sound and fury, but not enough support to cross the finish line yet.

  24. Chicon says:

    24 – translation….a special election is meaningless is the Republican wins. It is a sure sign of doom if the Democrat wins.

  25. Wes says:

    On the other hand, Robbie, in 1994, Republicans won two special elections in perennially Dem seats, portending disaster for Dems in November. Meanwhile, Dems won three solidly GOP seats in 2008, preaging electoral disaster for the GOP that year.

    GA-6 was a district Hillary did well in last year. If Dems can’t win potentially margiinal seats in a special after expending a mountain of resources when Trump is none too popular, maybe they’re too far gone to take advantage of the opportunity.

  26. Wes says:

    Phil, are you contributing to Kristi’s gubernatorial run?

  27. Phil says:

    Probably not, Wes. She seems like a lock to win without my help.

    Would like to see her in the senate but with Thune and Rounds in there doesn’t look like there will be any openings any time soon. May be a retirement after she gets a term behind her. In any event she would make a great VP pick for whoever is the nominee in 2020. Doubt Trump will be the nominee again. Kristi as VP would be great.

  28. NYCmike says:

    ” Doubt Trump will be the nominee again.”

    -reasons?

  29. Phil says:

    Meant to say Trump will not be the nominee again.

    The media will get him. One way or the other they will get him. Too much will on their part and not a large enough base to fight back effectively.

    He’ll be 74 and done. Won’t run again.

  30. Phil says:

    It is now ok for Stephen Colbert to call the President a c*ck sucker on national tv. No lines at all and we are only three months into his term. Imagine how bad it will get.

  31. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Trump political future is dependent on his keeping his base supporters active and loyal; so they will again turn out in huge numbers to support him again if he runs in 2020. So far he is doing a good job of it, as seen in Harrisburg.

    As indicated in the article below, he trolls the media well and effectively, they are total dolts in this regard. Every frenzied attack by the leftist press just increases the loyalty of Trump’s base to him.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/05/trump_trolling_the_media_winning_the_narrative.html

  32. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    30. “He’ll be 74 and done. Won’t run again.”

    There is a strong possibility he will be younger than his Democratic opponent.

    Trump is not the type to walk away from a fight, and 74 is not that old in today’s world.

    Trump retains strong support from his base, which he continues to cultivate — as in his recent rallies in Harrisburg and at the NRA. Taunting the liberal press just makes him more popular with those who elected him.

  33. PresidentPaul! says:

    Well….did you support Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012?

    Trump was never Paul and we knew what we were getting.

    Paul would have kept this government shut down.

  34. Wes says:

    Bunu believes Paul would have shut the government down.

    Maybe–if Washington weren’t spending enough money for his tastes.

  35. Wes says:

    We all know Paul was one of the biggest porkers in Congress.

    He put massive amounts of pork into government bills after ensuring the bills would pass without him to gull morns such as Bunu into believing Paul was some kind of fiscal hawk.

  36. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    During the last years of the Obama administration the Democrats when hard left; with Hillary’s win they thought they would get their socialist nirvana, open borders, anyone being allowed to vote who was in the country, a government takeover of the economy based on the need to combat climate change.

    Trump dashed those hopes, and he did so aggressively and rudely. A weak Republican would have failed, and ended up trying to appease the leftists. In this situation you need the nastiest guard dog possible.

    – I know you don’t want to hear this, but a win may mean a lot and it may mean very little. There are examples of both going back a long, long time.

    ” Doubt Trump will be the nominee again.”
    -reasons?

    – I expect Trump will run again simply because it would look, in his eyes, weak if he decided not to run.

    Why wouldn’t he run? Well, I think there’s a case to be made the stress of the job has worn on him quite a bit. Just the other day he mused about how great his previous life was. Learning how difficult the Congress can be hasn’t helped either.

    Also, will Trump willingly head into a general election with very low approval ratings and be willing to suffer a bad defeat? maybe. Maybe not. That assumes his approval rating will stay low, but we don’t know that. A year from now, he might have a 52% approval rating.

  44. Robbie says:

    DeMint has officially been forced out at Heritage.

  45. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Trump relies on his own internal polling, which proved accurate in the November election. The public polls were inaccurate then, and are now.

    – No. I prefer Trump not mangle history about Andrew Jackson. I prefer Trump not openly question why the Civil War was fought. I prefer Trump not suggest he’d be “honored” to meet Kim Jong Un. I prefer Trump muse about raising the gas tax simply because he was asked about it by a reporter. I prefer Trump not get sucked into an answer about his wiretap tweet simply because John Dickerson asked him.

    You rotate partners every 6 hands and deal new cards each hand. Everyone has their own bidding and playing system–sort of like Republican members of Congress.

  56. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    55.”No. I prefer Trump not mangle history about Andrew Jackson.”

    That is false. What Trump said about Andrew Jackson was correct. Likewise, the idea of a meeting with Kim Jong Um actually was a good comment, am sure if Obama suggested it you would be swooning over it.

    Admit it, you dislike Trump and would never vote for him. That is your right, but please end the concern troll routine.

  57. Robbie says:

    Oh FFS! Stop with this BS. Don’t you have Rasmussen poll to fawn over?

    Trump has his pluses and his minuses and I won’t be afraid to mention both. If that bothers you, then go find a safe place to decompress. I’ll almost certainly vote for Trump in 2020, but I have a clear conscience about not voting for him in 2016. I hoped winning might tame him, but it hasn’t so far.

    As for Trump’s interviews, saying you would be “honored” to meet a dictatorial thug who had his brother murdered and had other close associates executed by flamethrower, artillery gun, or pack of wild dogs is ridiculous.

    Trump’s his own worst enemy. The less he speaks, the better he does. That’s why April was so good for him. He kept his gonzo comments to a minimum.

  58. Robbie says:

    But let’s all contort ourselves into pretzels so we can backfill and support Trump’s dumb comments. It’s really worked well for Devin Nunes.

  59. wvally says:

    Trump can talk about whatever he wants, regardless if the elites think he ought to. This is America. He is the President.

    – It’s less about the interviews and more about the lack of message discipline. I’d prefer he speak far less, but, if he’s going to speak with interviewers, do so with a clear agenda to push. Allowing himself to muse about this and that is not helpful to any Republican.

  76. Wes says:

    Trump did have a clear message. He beat Hillary though because she was…well, Hillary. Had Trump faced a competent, non-elitist Dem opponent such as Andrew Cuomo, then Dems likely would have retained the presidency as evidenced by the close vote in PA, MI, and WI.

    Dems went with a sanctimonious, elitist hag best known recently for failing to respond adequately to the Benghazi attack–and lost.

  77. Hugh says:

    At this point given the republicans in congress can agree on nothing partially because trump is not popular we can hope for two things.

    God bless President Trump! He has been the most accomplished president in the world history! Here are a few of his outstanding accomplishments. Obama could never ever do any of these:

    Rolling back protections for transgender students.
    Refuses to release his taxes just like any presidents have for the past 40 years.
    Losing the respect and the title of the Leader of the Free World.
    Under investigation by the FBI.
    Failed mission in Yemen.
    Two failed Muslim bans.

    Most ethically challenged administration in US history.
    Most secretive administration in US history.
    Nepotism by giving family members important jobs and deals.
    Cronyism by appointing billionaires to his cabinet.
    Proposing massive tax cuts for the rich like himself.
    Allowing a banned pesticide proven to be dangerous to be used again.
    Falsely claiming navy ships going toward North Korea.
    ISIS remains in large despite his promises.
    Introduction to connotative terminology such as snowflakes, alternative facts, fake news and bigly…
    Targeting national monuments created by Obama and Clinton.
    Signing a bill that allows your private data sold to the highest bidder.
    Cutting after school programs, and meals on wheels.
    Wasting millions of tax-payers money by wife and kid not moving in to the Whitehouse.
    Promoting Mar-A-Lago by Sate Department.
    Settled multi-million dollars lawsuit against his fraudulent university.
    Dropping a $16 million bomb on 94 ISIS terrorists.
    Allowing offshore drilling.
    Slowest GDP growth in 3 years. (Fair to blame him since he took credit for good jobs numbers in January and February)
    Worst jobs report in nearly a year in Mach.
    Making it easy for mentally insane to buy guns.
    $1-3 million weekly trips to Florida.
    1$ billion lost in tourism.
    Inviting a thug like Duterte to the Whitehouse.
    Saying “I would be honored” to meet the Dear Leader of North Korea.
    Not having a clue about the history of United States as the president of the United States.
    Rolling back healthy school lunch standards and Let Girls Learn program promoted by Michele Obama.

    Assume the same for why Obama is being paid $400,000 by Wall Street firms for speeches.

  91. Wes says:

    SDC, I wouldn’t call what Trump ran a great campaign. He had numerous missteps along the way. Nonetheless, Trump did target voters critical for his prospects and take advantage of the fact that Hillary took several states for granted. Trump proved more adept as a campaigner than I thought and ultimaty won even if he did so primarily because his opponent was likely the most overrated presidential contender since Tom Dewey.

    In the end, winning was all that mattered no matter how Trump accomplished it.

  92. Wes says:

    I just read a rundown of the Republicans mulling primary bids for Senate in Alabama against the man with the most badass name in politics–Luther Strange.

    One in particular caught my eye:

    Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, theocrat and nutjob.

    Thankfully Alabamans tend to have little time for fools such as Moore in statewide races, so sanity looks likely to prevail in the primary.

  93. NYCmike says:

    Please correct me if I am wrong, as the news coming out of DC may not always be correct:

    The sticking point for several Republican members of the House is this – the HFC wanted a waiver for states to have the option of choosing to ignore the Obamacare mandate to cover pre-existing conditions.

    The HFC is willing to vote for a bill that keeps in place the Obamacare mandate for pre-existing conditions, which drives premiums through the roof for all Americans, but some nearly-to-sainthood-level “moderates” don’t want to give the states the option to have 50 separate experiments to see what works best to keep down costs and provide the best care.

  94. Wes says:

  97. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    Actions speak louder than words.

    Mr. Vito made several good points yesterday about the stubborness of the HFC. Fine, point taken.

    That said, being polite and agreeable with the Democrats is NOT a path to victory. The House should be putting out legislation that pushes back way to the right, and then the Senate can make it less so by compromising a bit. All Ryan has done is compromised, and now the Senate Dems will demand MORE, just like the HFC does, BUT THEY WILL GET IT, all because Ryan and those “moderates” don’t know how to negotiate from strength (or they want more Democratic Party policies).

  98. Tina says:

    If they cannit agree, they should go the repeal only option.

    Oh wait a minute, the rs love obamacare, somthat wont work.

  99. Tina says:

    The rs need to be sued for fraud. Vote for me to repeal obumblercare turned out to be a lie.

  100. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    He either leads, or he doesn’t. At this time, he is doing the best for Democratic policies to remain in place, while doing nothing to stop the growth of government.

  101. Tina says:

    We all knew this bryon, years ago. Theynran on rrpealing it, got into office, and now wont repeal it.

  104. NYCmike says:

    Ryan’s job, if he is a conservative, is to get legislation through the House that is as conservative as it can possibly be, and then the Senate has to compromise. That is exactly how the system was set up. The House would be the emotional branch, following the wild swings of the electorate, and the Senate, with all of its rules and respect for the minority factions, can slow things up and force compromise.

    When Ryan gives in to Dem demands in the House, he sets up Republicans for failure, once the 2 bills are combined, because they will have given up too much.

  105. NYCmike says:

    From Tina’s link (I am sure Robbie and Wes will say this is not a good source)(I will also point out that Ryan NEVER held the vote last month, which allowed many members to stay off the record):

    “When repeal first failed last month, a number of commentators blamed the conservative House Freedom Caucus. In the days since, caucus members have made the case, convincingly, that they have shown an enormous amount of flexibility in trying to reach agreement with the Tuesday Group, made up of House GOP centrists.

    Now, the centrists — a number of Republicans refer to them as “the mods,” for moderates — appear to be moving the goalposts, even as the conservatives offer concessions. Conservatives suspect the centrists were perfectly happy for conservatives to take the blame for killing the first bill, but now are showing their true colors by rejecting compromise on the second version.”

  106. Wes says:

    So Paul Ryan wants a leftist agenda enacted according to NYCMike.

    All right. The Limbaugh-Hannity-Levin wing of the GOP is just as insane as the Paulbots.

    No wonder talk radio is an increasingly irrelevant player in American political discourse.

  107. Wes says:

    In NYCMikeland–a Salvador Dali-inspired mutable landscape featuring an insane dodo–every Republican be Justin Amash apparently. Let me know how that works out for you, Mike.

  108. Wes says:

    Hey, Mikey, maybe Republicans would pass more conservative legislation with more Kristi Noems and fewer Justin Amashes.

  109. NYCmike says:

    “So Paul Ryan wants a leftist agenda enacted according to NYCMike.”

    -Negative, that is not what I said at all. Maybe you need to get a new license for reading comprehension.

    I did say his negotiating skills are sorely lacking (they are as bad as the HFC’s negotiating skills), and when they compromise on bills going to the Senate, they play right into Schumer’s hands.

  110. Tina says:

    Her thighness needs to quit with the whini g iver losing.

    Top heavy campaign, wasting dollars left and right, focus on the wrong states, medical incident on 9/11, having the rapist present for the second debate and getting rattled by the rape victims, etc.

  111. NYCmike says:

    Except his name, I don’t know much about Amash. Not sure why Wes is bringing him up in comments, other than to change the topic from Ryan’s competence in being a leader.

  112. Tina says:

    In short, all her fault.

  113. Wes says:

    Amash is your kind of guy, Mike. He talks a conservative game and always rails against the eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil “Establishment” while doing next to nothing constructive but being incredibly quick to throw bombs.

  114. NYCmike says:

    “No wonder talk radio is an increasingly irrelevant player in American political discourse.”

    -That’s odd. You claim they are “irrelevant”, yet they are consistently mentioned as being at fault.

    Which one is it? Are they “irrelevant”, or do they sway millions of voters? Their efforts during the last election, “irrelevant”?

    As Diego Montoya would say – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2y8Sx4B2Sk

  115. Wes says:

    Ryan and those “moderates” don’t know how to negotiate from strength (or they want more Democratic Party policies).

    Read your own words, Mike. Maybe you should start comprehending your own comments, buddy.

  116. NYCmike says:

    Amash sounds like some back-bencher.

    Ryan is the guy with the power.

    Yet, Wes keeps pointing away from the man behind the curtain to some j*ck*ss in the corner – “Look Amash Amash, do the Monster Mash.”

  117. NYCmike says:

    It is EITHER they are bad negotiators OR they want Dem policies.

    YOU won’t admit they are bad negotiators.

    I think they are bad negotiators.

  118. NYCmike says:

    Methinks you are the one who believes they prefer Dem policies, OR ELSE you would admit they are bad negotiators.

  119. NYCmike says:

  122. NYCmike says:

  123. Wes says:

    Talk radio is a mouthpiece for overpaid, egomaniacal buffoons with exactly no knowledge of the political process. They tried their best to help Dems win the 2014 elections by backing people only the NYCMikes of the world could love in the primaries: Steve Stockman, Lee Bright, Annette Bosworth, Greg Brannon, Joe Miller, Chris McDaniel, and Milton “Joseph Mengele” Wolfe.

    When the sane wing of the GOP rejected these buffoons in favor of candidates who could actually, you know, win, the talk radio mavens whined and bitched and threatened to start their own party.

    Now with their own political wet dream–Donald Trump–in the White House, the Limbaugh-led kamikaze crowd on talk radio can’t even get their own agenda passed.

    They’re pretty irrelevant.

  124. NYCmike says:

    **Wes trying to find another name to deflect from Ryan**

  125. NYCmike says:

    “Now with their own political wet dream–Donald Trump–in the White House”

    -This one statement makes it pretty damn clear – Wes does NOT listen to talk radio, but he does listen to the MSM when they lump all conservative talk-radio hosts into one basket and badmouth them.

    Wes, never go full-Robbie!

  126. Wes says:

    When we see the final bill, I’ll issue my opinion on the Ryan-led House leadership’s negotiating ability, Mike.

    Sorry if that sounds like a punt, but until then I’m not going to declare how good or bad Ryan is.

    Of course since Ryan has to deal with the Deadenders–who forced John Boehner (the only man to hold Obama in check from 2011 to 2015) to resign in 2015–he’s not exactly dealing with people negotiating fairly or trying to actually advance anything conservative unless they can mug for the cameras and claim the scalp of a member of the eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil “Establishment.”

  127. NYCmike says:

    “Of course since Ryan has to deal with the Deadenders”

    -LOL.

    I have not said “The Establishment” in I don’t know how long, but you seem to still have your bogeyman in the “Deadenders”.

    Work on that, Skippy.

  128. Bitterlaw says:

    The difficulty is that there really are moderate Republicans and conservative Republicans. They need to find common ground

    The Democrats are far more united and tend to either extreme leftists or almost extreme leftists. They almost always find common ground when they are in a position to win.

  129. NYCmike says:

    “When we see the final bill, I’ll issue my opinion on the Ryan-led House leadership’s negotiating ability, Mike.”

    -Good – I hope a 50-state experiment is NOT TOO MUCH to ask for from Republicans who champion SMALLER, LIMITED GOVERNMENT.

  130. Wes says:

    I used to listen to talk radio, Mikey. I quit once Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, and Co. went all in for Delaware’s Corruption Queen, Christine O’Donnell, to help Chris Coons win a Senate seat.

    It was clear at that point the medium that had helped Newt Gingrich break 40 years of unbroken Democrat rule in the US House had devolved into nothing but sanctimonious, solipsistic rant.

  131. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    Common ground can be found after the Senate waters down a conservative bill.

    Don’t give up the bargaining tools before it has to go through a real compromise.

  132. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    This just-released Gravis Marketing Poll of Ohio says that incumbent Senator Brown(D) is in dead heats with each of his two possible Republican opponents next year. Is it believable?

  133. Wes says:

    I’m assuming Mike voted for GWB. Someone who supported that clown is now demanding smaller government.

    That’s droll.

  134. NYCmike says:

    Castle again…..zzzzzzzzzz

  135. Wes says:

    Sheeple, Brown also looked weak in 2012. Then Josh Mandel did everything possible to throw the race. I hope either Mandel has learned from 2012 or Republicans nominate a better candidate next year.

  136. NYCmike says:

    “I’m assuming Mike voted for GWB.”

    -It was Bush vs Gore and Bush vs. Kerry.

    Bush, in both instances, was the more prudent spender (CRAZY, but true.)

    For Wes to deny that is Koo-coo.

  137. Wes says:

    Hey, Mikey, talk radio lost all credibility with that one. You can’t claim to advocate fiscal responsibility while uniting behind someone who is the direct antithesis of your stated ideal.

    Fortunately mainline Republicans in 2014 finally said “Enough is enough” and kicked every talk radio-backed Senate candidate’s ass that year. Talk radio responded by saying it was time to start a new party.

    Well, fair enough.

    Where’s the new party, you whiny bitches?

  138. NYCmike says:

    I was very unhappy with Bush, as well as the Republican Congress. Instead of limiting any increase to the level of inflation, they went full-K-Street instead, and funded every pet project certain Republican districts had wanted for years.

    Terrible governance, except for what the alternative would have been, which is what we got with Obama.*

    *McCain would have been better than Obama, but SOME people stayed home (Hello, Wes!).

  139. NYCmike says:

    “You can’t claim to advocate fiscal responsibility while uniting behind someone who is the direct antithesis of your stated ideal.”

    -If this statement is about Bush, why do refuse to look at the options.

    Bush vs Gore
    Bush vs Kerry

    In both cases, Bush is the better bet, albeit a bad one, in regards to spending.

  140. Wes says:

    Bush spent more than Bill Clinton, yet Mike claims the Incompetent One–signer of NCLB and creator of Medicare Part D–was a prudent spender. You really need to go help Porky Pig find that dodo, Mike, if you seriously believe GWB was in any way a “prudent spender.”

  141. NYCmike says:

    #145 – again ignores the other choices.

  142. Wes says:

    Bush was the worst goddamn President to serve between Carter and Obama. He directly set up Obama for the White House by failing utterly as President.

    If I had a time machine, I’d go back to 2000 and pay the Florida Supreme Court to kick Nader off the ballot. Then I’d spend all day on Election Day bussing every Democrat I could find to the polls to save us from that incompetent buffoon and his legacy.

  143. NYCmike says:

    “Bush spent more than Bill Clinton”

    -Exactly. The Republican legislature did its job when Bubba was President, and then went Dem-lite when Bush got into power, instead of maintaining fiscal responsibility.

    Of course, the “moderates” loved the Medicare expansion, and Delay twisted arms of the “deadenders” to pass it. They should have held firm.

    BUT, Gore and Kerry would have been worse. They would have been Obama.

  144. NYCmike says:

    “If I had a time machine,”

    -Think a little harder, and I believe a unicorn will bring you one.

  145. Wes says:

    Gore or Kerry wouldn’t have set up Obama for President. Either was preferable to the Incompetent One.

  146. Wes says:

    Gore or Kerry would have taken office facing a GOP Congress. There’s exactly zero chance either would have been another Obama.

  147. Wes says:

    If only unicorns and time machines actually existed, Mike…

  148. Phil says:

    So you have a late night talk show host who flat out comes on and says ‘Trumps mouth is nothing but Putin’s penis holder” aspart of a 12 minute Trump tantrum.

    Trying to envision Carson or Leno saying anything even remotely close to that about a POTUS. I cannot imagine. CBS comment? Ha, crickets. Of course this is the same network that had no comment when Letterman made a joke inferring Palin’s 14 year old daughter was a whore. Crickets.

    Try to imagine what would happen to any comedian or even conservative commentator who called President Obama a c*ck sucker. However, the MSM’s dead silence and hipocrisy is not even the main problem here. All lines have now been permanently erased. Worse, Colbert’s ratings have now gone through the roof since he made his show a Trump bashing all the time political Trump hate fest. The more lewd and over the top crap out of Colbert’s mouth the better his ratings. I think that’s the real problem.

  149. Wes says:

    I guess Colbert hasn’t gotten over the fact that a Republican most famous for disappearing from office to conduct an affair on another continent stomped his sister in the 2013 special election, Phil.

  150. Phil says:

    I might say I don’t care about Colbert per se. What bothers me is that CBS has made the choice that they could care less about red America. They don’t need us. As long as they get ratings from the elites and lefties on the coasts they will be breaking out the Pom poms and cheering every lewd piece of anti Trump crap they can get out of this guy. He’s now number one in the ratings and the lefties everywhere are flocking to this show with every outrageous monologue spewed out by this. He is number one in late night talk. It is win win. Great ratings and CBS gets to spew all the Trump hatred they can muster. Terrific.

  151. NYCmike says:

    Phil,

    That attitude will destroy itself. Be patient.

  152. NYCmike says:

    “That attitude” refers to CBS and the Left, not Phil.

  153. NYCmike says:

    “If only unicorns and time machines actually existed, Mike…” – Yes, that would be fun.

WY is the only state with an outright majority of GOP voters. Dems are nearly as nonexistent there as Republicans are in HI (a state with no party registration).

  165. Bitterlaw says:

    Gore or Kerry would have taken office facing a GOP Congress. There’s exactly zero chance either would have been another Obama.

    They would have been equally bad in different ways. Kerry would have been a nightmare on foreign policy. He was a disaster without all of the power. Imagine what he would have done as President. Gore would have waged war on the domestic front and been more of a Climate Warrior than Obama. We got what we got and Democrats suck. Wes likes Bill Clinton. I never will. We just disagree.

  166. Robbie says:

    – Hopefully, he does go in the not too distant future. If he does, maybe the two of you could team up and work together at one of the “sock puppet” farms that spread disinformation online that you like to read.

  168. Bitterlaw says:

    Can Upton get Kate to campaign with him?

  169. Wes says:

    Barletta has a decent shot at knocking off Casey, Robbie. He could run up the score in SWPA and sweep the rural areas.

    As far as Upton, I have a harder time seeing a path to victory for him. Despite being an unlikable slob, Stabenow has proved durable in politics, never facing a serious challenge thus far since Mnw helped her oust Spence Abraham in 2000. To win, Upton would have to achieve the equivalent of GOP margins in rural Alabama in Outstate Michigan so as to offset Stabenow’s colossal margins in Lansing and Detroit. It’s possible, but Upton will have to run an absolutely perfect campaign to do it. For some reason, Michiganders like their far-left Senators even when supporting Republicans for President.

    Nonetheless, if Upton can make Stabenow fight for her seat, then Republicans can maximize their gains in the Senate next year.

  170. Robbie says:

    Wes

    The case for Upton running is this. He’s term limited out of his chairmanship and has little else to achieve in the House. That may well not be enough to get him to run, but it might be a compelling reason.

    Regardless, I favor getting as many top tier challengers as possible. That puts the Democrats on the defensive and forces them to make tough decisions about where to spend money. It might also cause a few to retire.

    Jenkins, Rokita, Wagner, Cramer, Fox, Scott, Poliquin, Upton, Barletta, Mandel, and a good get in Wisconsin puts tremendous pressure on Democrats.

    Apple signing on to Trump agenda:

    “Apple announces $1 billion fund for American manufacturing. Apple will put up $1 billion to start a fund geared toward boosting advanced manufacturing in the U.S., Apple CEO Tim Cook said Wednesday.

    “I’m proud to tell you that we’re creating an advanced manufacturing fund,” Cook said on MSNBC’s “Mad Money.” “We’re initially putting $1 billion in the fund.”

    “By doing that, we can be the ripple in the pond,” he added. “Because if we can create many manufacturing jobs around – those manufacturing jobs create more jobs around them, because you have a service industry that builds up around them.”

    Cook said Apple would announce the first investment from the fund later in May.

    The announcement appears to fit in line with President Trump’s calls to bring manufacturing jobs to the U.S. Cook also applauded the Trump administration’s proposal to lower the corporate tax rate from the current 35 percent.
    “If you earn money globally, you don’t – you can’t bring it back into the United States unless you pay 35 percent plus your state tax,” Cook said. “And you look at this and you go, ‘This is kind of bizarre.'”

    “I think the administration – you saw that they’re really getting this, and want to bring this back,” he continued. “And I hope that that comes to pass.”

  195. Mr.Vito says:

    “North Korean state media criticized China directly Wednesday, saying its “reckless remarks” on the North’s nuclear program was testing its patience and could trigger unspecified “grave” consequences.

    A commentary released by the state-run Korean Central News Agency said that “a string of absurd and reckless remarks are now heard from China everyday only to render the present bad situation tenser.”

  211. NYCmike says:

    No Korea may be doing that under China’s orders. Person on radio last night stated that U.S. backed away from sailing near those man-made islands in So China Sea in return for help with No Korea.

    Repeal the ACA. Ban health insurance for two years. Then resume the sale of health insurance under free market principles. Done and done. Problem solved. Health care prices would plummet and concomitant heath insurance premiums would be much smaller as well as catastrophic care policies become the norm. No one complains about the cost of homeowners and auto insurance. We need to get to that point with health insurance, too.

  225. NYCmike says:

    Bayern,

    Please assume the role jason and others have made you play.

    Put the pom-poms on for Obamacare, and tell us all how much you love it.

Everywhere I go, I say, “Don’t worry about it. It’s going to be built!” I have started a commission to study developing a golf course. I have put up a sign saying, “Golf course coming!” And I have caved, and caved, and caved — so now our opponents know what good guys we are.”

  227. Mr.Vito says:

    Bayern didn’t need any help telling everyone how much he loved his Obamacare plan.

  228. Mr.Vito says:

    The progress report forgot the part where, in the meantime, with rule enforcement, the wait time to play on the other golf courses has been reduced 70%.

    252 Yes… and waving.

  241. NYCmike says:

    “Bayern didn’t need any help telling everyone how much he loved his Obamacare plan.”

    -Mr. Vito,

    I always read his comments about his policy IN GENERAL, that he saved $$, which is why he liked THE PLAN, YET he wants Obamacare GONZO, which I always found it silly to say he was a Big Gov’t person.

    I could have saved a lot of money if I had signed up for an Obamacare policy, but we paid more because my wife and son wanted their existing doctors.

    If I had been single, I would have taken advantage of every loophole to save $$$ short-term.

  242. Waingro says:

    #253, ha, so they really think this is their meal ticket for getting back the House, eh?

  243. Mr.Vito says:

    255 Obamacon thinks so.

  244. NYCmike says:

    “252 Yes… and waving.”

    -Why? They think it will backfire on the Republicans?

    Wow, I am now more happy that it passed. I take their joy as misguided, and a good sign.

  245. Mr.Vito says:

    “I always read his comments…”

    Then you read him insist he wasn’t being subsidized by others paying more.

  246. Mr.Vito says:

    And considering his solution is for the government to ban health insurance, and said before that people will die as a consequence, but oh well, I couldn’t say how much of a big government guy he is.

  247. NYCmike says:

    I guess I always took it as him telling the truth – if he puts in information, and they tell him how much, the law is the law.

    When speaking about “subsidized”, I usually think of those NOT PAYING ANYTHING, as opposed to a person getting a lower rate due to governmental stupidity.

  248. Robbie says:

    The Senate will drastically overhaul the House bill, but this still counts as a good win for Trump and Ryan too.

  249. NYCmike says:

    “And considering his solution is for the government to ban health insurance, and said before that people will die as a consequence, but oh well, I couldn’t say how much of a big government guy he is.”

    -Still don’t get the “ban insurance” part.

    I would prefer just cut out most government mandates, and let people be responsible enough to get their insurance from as early as possible.

  250. NYCmike says:

    “The Senate will drastically overhaul the House bill, but this still counts as a good win for Trump and Ryan too.”

    -Why “drastically overhaul”?

    Which Republican Senators are AGAINST states having the option to waive certain Obamacare requirements, to see if there is a better way to accomplish the goal of available and/or affordable healthcare coverage for all?

  251. Chicon says:

    – How many of the HFC voted to keep the government open this week?

  261. Chicon says:

    273 – your previous statements about the inflexibility of the HFC – especially the charge that they are dishonest brokers – have been proven wrong. They made concessions on the biggest legislative item upon which they ran. They took 80% of what they wanted. Everything you said they never do.

  262. NYCmike says:

    “Several moderate Republicans have been demanding a more sweeping rewrite of the House bill to ensure more people get covered and premiums come down.”

    -This is the problem in a nutshell.

    “Moderates” think government can GUARANTEE coverage AND low prices. It sounds like they should be called Democrats.

    The free-market, combined with 50 separate experiments at the beginning, will lead us to the best way to get MORE people access to good healthcare.

    NO GOVERNMENT PROGRAM CAN DO what the “moderates” are demanding.

  263. NYCmike says:

    “– How many of the HFC voted to keep the government open this week?”

    -Robbie approves of trillion $$ deficits……good to know.

  264. Robbie says:

    I’ve been proven wrong about nothing when it comes to the HFC. They are deadenders who are notorious for moving the goalposts. They aren’t interested in governing as evidenced by their refusal to vote to keep the government open.

    That the HFC voted for this version of repeal is the exception to the rule. Let’s see how they vote on whatever the Senate crafts on repeal. Let’s see if they play ball on tax reform and the need for it to be revenue neutral so it can be permanent under reconciliation. Let’s see if they play ball on the debt ceiling. Hah!

    Should the HFC be thanked for this? Yes. Does it wipe away their years of refusing to work with Republican leadership on actual governance? Nope.
