    First.

    French media is trying to blackout Macron’s released emails and evidence of offshore accounts (a big deal in France):

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/emmanuel-macron-email-hack-leaks-election-marine-le-pen-russia-media-ordered-not-publish-commission-a7721111.html

    “France’s electoral commission has ordered media not to publish contents of Emmanuel Macron’s leaked campaign emails to avoid influencing the election.

    It warned news outlets in France that journalists could face criminal charges for publishing or republishing the material, under laws that came into effect at midnight forbidding any commentary liable to affect the presidential race.”

  2. Robbie says:

    Today’s Gallup has Trump at 40%. He seems to be in a tight range right now between 39% and 44%. The caveat is the poll is of adults so his approval is likely 2-3 points higher among those who are registered to vote. That would put Gallup in line with the websites that attempt average his job approval.

    RCP – 43.1%
    Huffpollster – 44.5%
    538 – 44.3% (RV and LV only)

  3. Wes says:

    In 2014, Landmark was consistently friendly to Dem candidates in Georgia, often showing Nunn ahead even though Perdue led all the way on Election Night and beat her by a healthy eight points.

    If Handel is leading in this poll, then Osoff is probably on track to lose.

  4. Waingro says:

    #3, a 5+ point win for Handel would be relatively devastating for the Dems, given how ALL IN they have been on this race.

  5. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1. “French media is trying to blackout Macron’s released emails and evidence of offshore accounts”

    Having an offshore account is almost a necessity for anyone with money in France. It has not been that long since Hollande attempted to impose a 75% income tax on high income individuals. It was strongly opposed and withdrawn. At the time Macron attacked it as making France “Cuba without the sun.”

  6. Tina says:

    The drats will declare victory, when they lose.

  7. Walt says:

    I think Handel can beat Macron.

  8. Bitterlaw says:

    Softball woes continue but the girls are still smiling.

  9. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    You have to be a special kind of stupid to think a low single-digit victory in a deep red district means anything.

    But then again, informed posters on this board have been lacking ever since Trump became the nominee.

    You old stupid ignorant sh*ts.

  10. Wes says:

    Hey, TIPW, check the percentage Trump beat Hillary by in the district last year. For the time being, GA-6 is no deep red district.

    Transparent Dem Troll, send us better trolls.

    PLEASE.

  11. Wes says:

    By the way, Handel was considered the weakest prominent Republican in the race after two failed statewide primaries and because of her generally poor fundraising. Ossoff is generally seen as a charismatic, if somewhat oddball, character who’s been raising money prodigiously. He also overperformed polling in the runoff here. If he loses in a district Trump barely carried after all this national attention, that doesn’t speak well for vaunted Dem enthusiasm.

  12. Cash Cow TM says:

    Ossoff

  13. PresidentPaul! says:

    Trump is focusing too much on supposed “victories” when he should be vetoing everything including all GOP bills and the “budget deal.” The health care bill is bad also.

    Nothing this congress or the prior has done is good so everything should be dead on arrival.

  14. PresidentPaul! says:

    btw from a practical standpoint, if the Puerto Rico Island becomes Somalia/Venezuela like they have voted for, then because they are all already US citizens they will all show up in Florida to help elect the next Bernie Sanders psychopath in 2020 so the USA can become like that as well.

    It’s almost like letting Lehman Brothers go bankrupt and then they bring down everyone with them.

  15. PresidentPaul! says:

  16. jason says:

    Puerto Rico has a strong R party that elects governors frequently. While many of the Puerto Ricans in NY and NJ vote Democratic, that has to do more with them becoming Democrats rather than arriving as Democrats.

    Republicans could be competitive in Senate and House races in Puerto Rico itself.

    There will be another referendum soon. If there is a strong pro-statehood vote, say 60%+, then we should make Puerto Rico the 51st state.

  19. jason says:

    . For openers I know of no Democrat who even remotely agree with the comment “let’s take the 85% that we’re happy with their HCand make it crappy so we can offer free HC to the other 15%”

    LOL

    But 99% of people with at least half a brain will agree that is what happened.

  20. jason says:

    Thanks.

    Sometimes I think wvally is just too nice to be an A-hole herself.

    I know that sound like an attack, but it isn’t.

  22. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    #21 Yes, at least 100% of my brain agrees with you. ObamaCare was nothing more than a way for the Statists to control 15% of the US GDP under the guise of providing health insurance(not necessarily health care) for 40 million uninsured of which millions did not want the product.

  23. jason says:

    ObamaCare was nothing more than a way for the Statists to control 15% of the US GDP”

    Right, that was the objective.

    The rest is 3,000 pages of bureaucratic details.

  24. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    It appears that as of noon Paris time, the turnout in the French election was somewhat tepid compared to recent French Presidential elections.

    http://www.jpost.com/Breaking-News/French-presidential-election-2nd-round-turnout-at-282-pct-by-midday-489969

  25. jason says:

    The little secret the Dems will never admit to was that Obamacare had very little to do with HC.

    Of course, it ended up a compromise between the moonbats and the “moderates” in the Dem party. Blanche Lincoln, Ben Nelson, Joe Lieberman didn’t go along with the “public option” i.e. complete government takeover of the insurance industry.

    But they like to say “Obamacare was a compromise”. Yeah, between hard core leftists and leftists.

  26. jason says:

    Macron is going to win big because Le Pen is a dingbat.

    But if there are offshore accounts, he will start off with a big scandal.

  27. Bitterlaw says:

    Macron is a socialist who does not hate immigrants. Le Pen is a socialist who hates immigrants. Is that pretty much it?

    Macron is a socialist who does not hate immigrants. Le Pen is a socialist who hates immigrants. Is that pretty much it?

    – Yes.

  29. Robbie says:

    Regardless of what TIPW or anyone else says, I do think GA06 is a key test for Republicans. The suburbs have always been Republican territory. Handel is not a great candidate, but this has long been a safe district for Republicans and Tom Price always won with ease.

    I’ve been reluctant to view the Trump/Clinton margin in districts as the key factor, but it does seem right now many people who have long been Republican voters are sticking with Ossoff. That may change between now and the election, but it hasn’t been what I expected.

    I figured Republicans in districts like GA06 just didn’t vote for Trump because they didn’t like Trump, but still considered themselves Republicans and would vote for other Republicans. That is how I voted and I figured most if not all would vote for Trump in 2020 so long as he performed well.

  30. Tina says:

    Wes is in point re the ga 06 seat. It is a soecial election. No doubt that trumps good week has helped-strong job numbers, unemployment rate down, job slice appears to consist of higher wages, passage if the hc bill, and frankensteins confession that the muh russia story has no trump ties.

  34. Michael says:

    Also great news. I graduated!

  35. jason says:

    Congratulations!

    Are you going to start paying taxes soon?

  36. jason says:

    Macron is a socialist who does not hate immigrants. Le Pen is a socialist who hates immigrants. Is that pretty much it?”

    No, Macron loves older women. I don’t know about Le Pen.

  37. jason says:

    would like to see Le Pen be under 40%”

    Depends on turnout. Her supporters will turn out but a lot of people who would reluctantly vote for Macron might sit out on the assumption its a done deal.

    And maybe a lot of the Melanchon Marxist supporters might believe Macron is “pro-business”.

  38. jason says:

    Personally, I would prefer Macron win a close election so he has no mandate.

  39. jason says:

    Montana At-Large
    Garin-Hart-Yang Research (D)

    Gianaforte (R) 49%
    Quist (D) 43%”

    So Gianaforte must be ahead by what, at least 12?

  40. jason says:

    but it does seem right now many people who have long been Republican voters are sticking with Ossoff.”

    Zzzzzzzz… where did you come up with this?

    Ossoff is getting a lot of money and is motivating the Dem base. That is what is keeping the election relatively close.

    There is no evidence “long time Republicans” are voting for Ossof.

    MSM garbage.

  41. Phil says:

    Le Pen getting 40% would be a decent number all things considered.

    I don’t care much one way or the other.

  42. jason says:

    Handel is not a great candidate,”

    Again, MSM garbage.

    Actually, she is a darn good candidate with good name recognition and who was just a couple thousand votes shy of being Governor.

  43. Tina says:

    Radio londres suggests le pen ahead in early exits. Is that site legit?

    Like phil, do not care ine way or the ither.

  44. Robbie says:

    There is no evidence “long time Republicans” are voting for Ossof.
    MSM garbage.

    – The polling shows some portion of voters who have consistently voted for Republicans in the past are siding, RIGHT NOW, with Ossoff. That’s not an opinion, but what the data says. It’s also something the boys from Decision Desk have noted. I don’t think they’re left wing hacks, are they?

  45. Hugh says:

    I get called for a poll. I am a lifelong democrat and I am voting for Handel. I put the lifelong republican theory as shaky at best.

  46. Robbie says:

    Here are the percentages won by Tom Price since 2004. In 2004 and 2010, there was no challenger or just a write-in effort.

    2004 – 100%
    2006 – 72.4%
    2008 – 68.5%
    2010 – 99.9%
    2012 – 64.5%
    2014 – 66.0%
    2016 – 61.7%

    Over the last three elections, including the one just 6 months ago, Price won at least 60% every time. Now, Handel is polling right below 50%.

    We’ll see how this shakes out on election day, but my point is I’m surprised that a sizable chunk of typically Republican voters are, FOR NOW, either holding out on Handel or siding with Ossoff.

    If you look at it another way, the Republican presidential candidate got starting in 2000 68%, 70%, 62%, 61%, and then just 48% in 2016. Did the dropoff from 61% to 48% represent a sudden realignment of voters in GA06, or where they merely not interested in voting for Trump? I would assume it’s the latter, but the fact Handel is polling closer to Trump’s level of support in 2016 rather than Price’s is interesting.

  47. Robbie says:

    I see John Kasich was out today ripping Republicans over the House healthcare bill. Considering what a weasel he is, there’s likely one reason why he continues to be so boisterous and cranky about Trump and Republicans. He’s laying the groundwork to either challenge Trump in the primary or run as a third party candidate.

    Kasich has always been phonier than a three dollar bill. Of course when I said this in the Summer of 2015, I was accused of attacking simply because he was hurting Jeb Bush. No. I was attacking him because he’s a jerk.

  48. BayernFan says:

    So France can have their presidential runoff two weeks later, but Georgia needs to wait over 2 months to have one for a congressional seat.

  49. Robbie says:

    Congratulations to Laura Ingraham, Nigel Farrage, and all of the other populists around the world. The first exit polls in France show Macron has won 63.5% to 36.5%. Only DeGaulle and Chirac will have won bigger victories. Never fear though 4Chan readers, Cernovich followers, and other alt-righters, Nigel Farrage said this morning on TV Le Pen was definitely going to win the French presidency in 2022!

  50. JC says:

    Sorry Robbie, but inevitable outcomes doesn’t mean that you have to support a corrupt globalist autocracy that wishes to import poor foreign nationals in an effort to create a permanent welfare class to retain its power. All at the expense of the native population, of course.

    But god forbid the native population most effected by these policies complain. That’s racist, right?

    Regardless, Wilder’s party’s ‘loss’ resulted in taking nearly half of the entire Netherlands legislator. Le Pen and her party will probably go from single digits to around 40% of the nation vote in the span of a decade.

    These issues of mass migration and the expense of the native population aren’t just going away because the ruling class candidate managed to win by in an ever decreasing margin. Sooner or later, the EU is doomed to fail.

    But you can keep calling people you don’t like ‘N@zis’. I’m sure it’ll lead to electoral success.

  51. Wes says:

    There has been an influx of black and Latino voters into GA-6. That probably accounts for the presidential race. Sorry, Jason, but Handel is not a “darn good” candidate but a fairly average one whose name ID and base of support made her the GOP nominee. I say that as someone who contributed to her 2006 campaign and voted for her in that primary. (I actually lived in Georgia in 2005 and 2006.) She has never been a particularly strong candidate or fundraiser and won in 2006 because Republicans were sweeping all statewide offices not occupied by incumbent Democrats in Georgia.

    I want her to win, but I’m not going to overstate her mediocre campaign skills.

  52. Robbie says:

    France24 says about 66% for Macron. The way the right in France fouled up this election in worthy of Tea Party lore.

  53. Robbie says:

    JC

    Pull your head out of the sand. Le Pen is a socialist who wants to nationalize the banks. Is that conservative? No.

  54. Wes says:

    Republicans will need to reconfigure the GA-6 lines in 2012 to ensure Dems can’t poach the seat.

    Fortunately Ossoff is a fairly oddball candidate bolstered largely by out-of-state money from leftists wanting to deliver a victory to Dems over Republicans because of their fury at Trump.

    A Dem more mainstream to GA politics would be in a better position to win, but Dems went full Corbyn with Ossoff. That’s why I expect Handel to win despite the money Ossoff has.

  55. Robbie says:

    The “immigration is everything” crowd seems to think economic socialism is ok.

  56. JC says:

    Don’t care.

    I support sovereignty. You don’t. Mass migration to prop up permanent ruling class power is what you are supporting.

  57. Tina says:

    If Le Pen were a Theresa May type, then I could see supporting her. As it stands, a choice between her is one between Tartarus and Gehenna. Neither do I find to be particularly appealing.

  77. jason says:

    That’s not an opinion, but what the data says. ”

    No the data doesn’t say that. There is no data saying Rs are voting for Ossoff.

    A drop of less than 10% in the normal R support could mean Indies have switched some support away from Rs and the leftist base is more mobilized.

  78. jason says:

    “Sorry Robbie, but inevitable outcomes doesn’t mean that you have to support a corrupt globalist autocracy that wishes to import poor foreign nationals in an effort to create a permanent welfare class to retain its power. All at the expense of the native population, of course.”

    If you want to beat ‘the corrupt globalist autocracy” then you have to come up with a better candidate than Le Pen.

    I would have voted for Fillon in the first round and for Macron in the second by default.

    It’s ok to rail against the establishment, but you need a candidate. Le Pen was never a viable candidate, she is a socialist dingbat.

  79. Robbie says:

    Jason

    The Landmark poll listed by Dave at the top of this thread shows that 16% of Republicans are supporting Ossoff. That’s not a small number. It probably won’t hold, but it is a data point to suggest RIGHT NOW some Republicans are backing Ossoff.

  80. jason says:

    I want her to win, but I’m not going to overstate her mediocre campaign skills.”

    I beg to differ. The proof is in the pudding, she won convincingly in the primary against a pretty strong field, although as I stated here during the primary she was the best choice for the GE.

    I think “darn good candidate” fits her well. Of course, darn good candidates sometimes lose anyway.

  81. jason says:

    The Landmark poll listed by Dave at the top of this thread shows that 16% of Republicans are supporting Ossoff”

    Oh puhhhlease, you know that is as much crap as the 7% of Democrats that are supporting Handel.

    In a small sample like that of 315 Republicans you can get skewed results like that with a very small swing.

    Garbage.

  82. Wes says:

    Jason, in a jungle primary against a lot of guys with none of her name ID or base of support, Handel got 17% of the vote. You can call that convincing if you like. Handel’s electoral history post 2006 in no way suggests “darn good” but “mediocre.” If she’d beaten a single strong opponent by double digits, I could see your point. Actual empirical evidence says something different.

  83. jason says:

    Memo to Wobbie.

    Ossof is not geting 16% of the R vote and neither is Handel getting 7% of the Dem vote.

    A lot of times these people are not even Rs or Ds.

    You see this on C-SPAN. People call in on the R line and start talking about how they disappointed that Rs are for killing babies and old people.

  84. Robbie says:

    The top line on Drudge right now is “Le Pen humiliation”. Going back 15 years, Drudge has been an ardent supporter of the Le Pen family.

  85. Robbie says:

    Jason

    As I said, RIGHT NOW polls suggest 16% of Republicans support Ossoff. I doubt that ends up the case, but the point I made earlier still stands. Somewhat surprisingly, a segment of Republicans are resisting the Republican candidate for now. I find that surprising given the voting history of the district. That’s all. Nothing more, nothing less.

  86. jason says:

    wes, you have to be fair here.

    Handel got 20% out of the 47% or so that Rs got. So she got about 42% of the R vote.

    The next R got 10% so she did get a double digit lead against the next Republican.

    Yeah, I say that is pretty darn good.

    Democrat Jon Ossoff 48.1% 92,673
    Republican Karen Handel 19.8% 38,071
    Republican Bob Gray 10.8% 20,802
    Republican Dan Moody 8.8% 17,028
    Republican Judson Hill 8.8% 16,870
    Republican Kurt Wilson 0.9% 1,820
    Republican David Abroms 0.9% 1,639
    Democratic Ragin Edwards 0.3% 504
    Democratic Ron Slotin 0.3% 491

  87. jason says:

    Handel got 42% of the R vote against 4 other R credible contenders.

    I can’t see how that is not an impressive win.

  88. jason says:

    Make that 3 credible R contenders, 4 total.

  89. jason says:

    The Senate is going to change the HC bill.

    Then Rs can decide if they want to keep Obamacare or support the compromise bill.

    It isn’t rocket science.

  90. jason says:

    I doubt that ends up the case,”

    Translation: so I know its complete horse crap but I post it here because its big news on moonbat sites.

  91. Wes says:

    Jason, I just checked. Against three other candidates with none of her name ID or base of support. Handel got 19.8% to the next person’s 10.8%. You have to be honest here. She was by far the most prominent candidate with the biggest base of support in a jungle primary and failed to crack 20% of the total vote. She’s not a great candidate but a mediocre one. She reminds me more of Chris Nelson from the 2010 SD-AL primary than anyone else.

    Will she win?

    Probably.

    Is she a great candidate?

    About the same way Chris Nelson or Mead Treadwell was.

  92. Robbie says:

    jason says:
    May 7, 2017 at 3:27 pm
    I doubt that ends up the case,”
    Translation: so I know its complete horse crap but I post it here because its big news on moonbat sites.

    – No. I was trying to understand why, in a Republican district, a candidate with a flimsy background and little experience is polling, FOR NOW, at this level of support.

  93. Wes says:

    If I were the only person to have previously been on the ballot five times in every county of a congressional district and couldn’t get even 20% of the vote against three guys most voters in the district had never even eahrd of I wouldn’t exactly be popping champagne corks about my greatness as a candidate.

  94. Robbie says:

    Just for the record, I expect Handel will win. Let’s say something like 54-46. But the reason the margin will not be like the 60-40 or better that Price received is because a segment of Republicans who have always backed Republicans will vote for Ossoff. That’s an interesting feature in this race. The question going forward will be whether that remains the case in November 2018, or will voting patterns in these districts snap back to where they were prior to 2016.

  95. Wes says:

    That’s actually a good question, Robbie. The answer will depend on how Trump and Handel are perceived in the district as President and Congresswoman respectively.

  96. Phil says:

    54-46 would be pretty darned impressive considering the final jungle numbers – especially considering how poorly Trump did there. I would be satisfied wth a one point win.

  97. Wes says:

    Despite RRH eeyoring, Georgia is not trending Democrat despite the decline in support for GOP presidential candidates since 2008. The Peachtree State is downballot solidly Republican as evidenced by the Dem electoral wipeout there since Obama took office in 2009. Lack of enthusiasm for Trump in the suburbs in 2016 and increased black turnout because of Obama in 2008 hurt Republicans in the national races, but the GAGOP has suffered no ill effects despite this. Ossoff has proved somewhat exceptional but hasn’t yet proved capable of doing anything Barnes, Nunn, and Carter didn’t do.

    It was a jungle primary, there were Ds too. She got 20% out of 47% the Rs got or 42% of the R vote. The next R got 11% out of 47% or 23%. Was that your candidate? How mediocre was that?

    There is nothing mediocre about Karen Handel. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

    That’s actually a good question, Robbie. The answer will depend on how Trump and Handel are perceived in the district as President and Congresswoman respectively.

    – More broadly, I think it applies to the 25 or so House districts represented by Republicans that Hillary won. I don’t buy that people like Pete Sessions or Kevin Yoder are suddenly vulnerable, but it will be interesting to see if the Trump presidential vote was a “one off” or something new.

  103. Wes says:

    Maybe in your universe a 19.8-10.8 spread is 20 points. In reality, it’s nine points.

    Damn mediocre.

  104. Wes says:

    This is rich, Jason pretends Handel won by 20 by excluding all non-GOP votes from an all-party primary but accuses me of making fake news.

    In other news, Mead Treadwell was a great candidate for Senate according to Jason. I guess his 25% of the vote in a single-party primary was a landslide.

    Oh, wait.

    Treadwell finished behind Joe Miller.

    We can safely say based on his analysis, Jason has no clue what a good candidate actually is.

    The major damage that arose from the Comey announcement prior to the election was the Hillary was forwarding E-mails with confidential information onto known pervert Anthony Weiner’s laptop. That was Hillary’s bad judgment, not the fault of any hacker.

    #121

    The house bill was a fake bill Tina. here’s Amash statement on it.

    If Trump wanted to accomplish something he would have kept the government shut down for 4 years

    http://www.redstate.com/neil_stevens/2017/05/07/justin-amash-not-standing-paul-ryans-nonsense


    The AHCA repeals fewer than 10 percent of the provisions in the Affordable Care Act. It is an amendment to the ACA that deliberately maintains Obamacare’s framework. It reformulates but keeps tax credits to subsidize premiums. Instead of an individual mandate to purchase insurance, it mandates a premium surcharge of 30 percent for one year following a lapse of coverage. And the bill continues to preserve coverage for dependents up to age 26 and people with pre-existing conditions.

    I want to emphasize that last point. The bill does not change the ACA’s federal requirements on guaranteed issue (prohibition on policy denial), essential health benefits (minimum coverage), or community rating (prohibition on pricing based on health status). In short, Obamacare’s pre-existing conditions provisions are retained.

    The latest version of the AHCA does allow any state to seek a waiver from certain insurance mandates, but such waivers are limited in scope. Guaranteed issue cannot be waived. Nobody can be treated differently based on gender. And any person who has continuous coverage—no lapse for more than 62 days—cannot be charged more regardless of health status.

    Consider what this means: Even in a state that waives as much as possible, a person with a pre-existing condition cannot be prevented from purchasing insurance at the same rate as a healthy person. The only requirement is that the person with the pre-existing condition get coverage—any insurer, any plan—within 62 days of losing any prior coverage.

    If a person chooses not to get coverage within 62 days, then that person can be charged more (or less) based on health status for up to one year, but only (1) in lieu of the 30 percent penalty (see above), (2) if the person lives in a state that has established a program to assist individuals with pre-existing conditions, and (3) if that state has sought and obtained the relevant waiver. Here in Michigan, our Republican governor has already stated he won’t seek such a waiver, according to reports.

    So why are both parties exaggerating the effects of this bill? For President Trump and congressional Republicans, the reason is obvious: They have long vowed to repeal (and replace) Obamacare, and their base expects them to get it done. For congressional Democrats, it’s an opportunity to scare and energize their base in anticipation of 2018. Neither side wants to present the AHCA for what it is—a more limited proposal to rework and reframe parts of the ACA, for better or for worse.”

    “When deciding whether to support a bill, I ask myself whether the bill improves upon existing law, not whether I would advocate for the policy or program if I were starting with a blank slate. In other words, the proper analysis is not whether it makes the law good but rather whether it makes the law better. In this case, I felt comfortable advancing the bill to the Senate as a marginal improvement to the ACA. The House has voted more than 30 times to amend (not just repeal) Obamacare since I’ve been in Congress, and I have supported much of that legislation, too, on the principle of incrementalism. If it advances liberty even a little (on net), then I’m a yes.”

    -This is only the first one, but I always liked this rule. I was mistakenly sent a bill that my insurance company should have received. It was for like $500. I had literally been in the Dr office for 5 minutes, I paid a $25 co-pay, and she sent me out with a prescription.

    I confronted her with the invoice, she asked why I cared since insurance would pay for it, and I demanded at least a full hour of her time, if that was the rate for her services, since I paid a ridiculous amount for that insurance.

    Right, and as any moron knows, to assess the strength of the R candidate within the party you have to consider their vote among Rs, so in a jungle primary you exclude the Dems.

    If this had been a normal primary, Rs on one ballot, Ds on another, Handel would have had over 40% of the R vote in a crowded field with good opposition.

    Awesome candidate.

    I can find hundreds of posts where I say that Obamacare (or whatever version thereof) was here to stay, that elections have consequences and one of the consequences of electing Obama and a congress that approved this entitlement was Obamacare.

    NYC squealed like a stuck pig when I said the popular provisions of Obamacare such as pre-existing conditions and insurance for kids to 26 would NEVER be reversed and Obamacare could be improved but never “repealed”.

    This is true whomever is president, it would have been true with Ted Cruz.

    The reason is not a mystery. It has to do with once an entitlement of this magnitude is granted, its impossible to take away.

    Not really. Apples and oranges. I was wrong about Trump not being nominated, but I did not dismiss his chances of winning after he was.

    Is Obamacare expansion a conservative position?”

    Zzzzz… there was no Obamacare expansion, your moron brain probably means Medicaid.

    Kasich did what he thought best for his constituents like other Governors did, it doesn’t mean he isn’t a conservative.

  190. jason says:

    Kasich played the hand he was dealt, I don’t fault him for that. Elections have consequences, blamme Obamacare on Obama, not Kasich.

  191. Robbie says:

    Steve Bannon is a nationalist clown who brought marine Le Pen to Trump Tower during the transition.

    General McMaster won the battle of 73 easting in the first Gulf War and then became the first military leader in the Second Gulf War to implement a counter insurgency program in Anbar province. His tactics formed the cornerstone of Patreaus’ surge policy.

    So yes, if Bannon is rising at the expense of McMaster, that is disappointing.

  192. jason says:

    “If you remember, I was slamming John Kasich long before Jeb’s campaign ever got going or went down in flames.”

    Sure, and Rubio and Christie and Walker anybody else that dared run against the presumptive “clear the field” “suck up the money” “endorsement king” “organization juggernaut” nominee.

    Yep you slammed all of them, while Trump ate “the anointed one’s lunch.

  193. jason says:

    So yes, if Bannon is rising at the expense of McMaster, that is disappointing.”

    IF my aunt had balls, she would be my uncle.

    You quote every MSM Trump hating garbage as if it was of divine origin.

    If Bannon didn’t want McMaster, he wouldn’t have been appointed, is that what you are saying?

    Oh wait…..

    Oh, and do we have a bet on Corbyn? The dogs are drooling…

  194. Robbie says:

    I never questioned Rubio’s or Walker’s commitment to conservatism. I did question Kasich’s commitment to conservatism. I thought then and continue to believe he actively works against a lot of conservative causes. For instance, he vetoed the fetal heartbeat bill late last year.

    I don’t like Kasich and I think he is drifting further and further left by the day. His advisor John Weaver only makes things worse with is “two paths” BS he’s always pushing on twitter.

  195. jason says:

    General McMaster won the battle of 73 easting in the first Gulf War and then became the first military leader in the Second Gulf War to implement a counter insurgency program in Anbar province”

    Wow, impressive.

    I wish Trump had appointed him.

  196. jason says:

    I never questioned Rubio’s or Walker’s commitment to conservatism.”

    You spent the entire primary tearing both of them down, don’t move the goalposts.

    The reason being you thought they should have sat around and crowned the worst “front runner” candidate in primary history.

  197. jason says:

    You supported Jeb Bush but questioned the conservative credentials of another candidate?

    Really, the guy who actually said “I will respect conservatives”?

    LOL

  198. Robbie says:

    I thought Jeb would be a better president than Rubio or Walker. Deal with it. I’ve moved on from that fight.

    I think all three would be better presidents than Trump as well. Their White Houses wouldn’t be viper’s nest of backbiting either.

    Might be time for you to do so as well. The 2016 race is in the rear view mirror. Rubio has a future. Jeb is about to buy the Marlins.

  199. jason says:

    I’ve moved on from that fight.”

    Sure you have.

    “Their White Houses wouldn’t be viper’s nest of backbiting either”

    Was that my first clue?

  200. jason says:

    Ok so do we have a bet on Corbyn, stop stalling.

  201. Tina says:

    Walke was my cirst choice and then kasich.

    I did not vote in the ca primary,

    Flub would have been the worst choice. $150 million wasted. He could not answer the iraq qustion. Something that his advisors shoukd have prepped him for.

    That, his stupis smirk, rino tendencies, another bush loser, and the guac bowl sale did him in.

  202. Wes says:

    I see Jason is still under the delusion that Republicans had a primary recently. Jason, it was an all-party primary Handel got 19.8% of the vote in despite being the most prominent candidate in the race with the biggest base of support. She’s no Kristi Noem–who actually did get 42% of the primary vote in 2010 against more prominent better funded opponents.

  203. Tina says:

    Bannon is rising and jarrod is declining.

    Lol, maybe it was spun that way by the trump administration.

    I dO not think any of this up and down baloney is true.

    – Well Tinfoil, your boy Cernovich had the same story about McMaster just before Lake published his story. And we all know who leaks to Cernovich. None other than Steve Bannon.

    McFarland spoke with Trump because she is a personal friend of his. No replacement for her has been named so she stays on for the time being, but she is also scheduled to go to “ambassador school” at State when there are enough nominees to hold one.

  222. Robbie says:

    The last thing Trump needs to do is give ANOTHER interview. Lester Holt won’t be there to help him. His goal will be to hurt Trump. Again, Trump still hasn’t figured out the political press can’t be wooed the way he wooed the tabloid press in NYC.

    Abby D. Phillip?

    NBC’s Lester Holt will sit down with Trump for a wide-ranging interview this week.

    Yet, flynn was cleared by the fbi on 1/24.

    Blam, she fell into the trap.

  239. Tina says:

    She is going to argue leaking vs being assigned to speak to the press.

  240. NYCmike says:

I’m hardly wedded to the idea, but the only point I was making earlier in the day was that Labour has become so liberal, it wouldn’t surprise me if they would be ok with him saying on as leader.

  298. Robbie says:

    Tinfoil hasn’t figured out that Twitter has been a weak spot for Trump. Polling shows more than 60% of Americans want him to stop tweeting and he made his biggest mistake on Twitter when he accused Obama of wiretapping him. His approval rating went from 45% in RCP to 39.8% in RCP in just under a month after that.

  299. Robbie says:

    The blue slip process is the reason why former House member Chris Cox was not nominated to the 9th circuit in 2001 by GWB. Effectively, Barbara Boxer filibustered the idea by refusing to allow the nomination to go forward.

  300. Tina says:

    Yawn.

    Same old crappola.

  301. wraith says:

    “It is a matter of some debate how important blue slips are in the confirmation
    process. The blue slip practice is not a formal part of the Judiciary Committee’s
    rules, and the determination of just how much weight to give to a Senator’s
    opposition to a nomination is left largely up to the chair of the committee. Among
    other issues, the chair will decide whether to honor the objections, voiced through
    blue-slips, from all home-state senators or just those who belong to the same party
    as the president. ”

This incompetent buffoon is an insult to the Constitution and the millions of men and women who died in it’s defense.

    True conservatives will hold Trump responsible. Insane breitbart-informed, hyper-partisans like Tina will keep blaming someone else.

    The whole world can see already tell Trump is a sociopathic liar who is incapable of telling the truth. The GOP needs to man up and stop defending this criminal if it’s to have any semblance of credibility in the future.

  319. Tina says:

    Obama and Yates that Flynn was a security risk. He

    Lol, why did not the obumbler strip him of his top security clearance, if he was a risk?

  320. Polaris says:

    I do hope Kasich can unite the nation after both the Obama and Trump disasters.

  321. Tina says:

    The obumbler could have revoked it anytime from 2014 to jan of 2017., before trump took over. The ibumbler did not.

  322. Tina says:

    Seems like a security risk should not have top security clearance, right!

  323. wvally says:

    Trump stuck with Flynn, the one guy who was willing to advise him when the republican foreign policy establishment blackballed him. And then he let him go.

    Bunch of hyperventilating hypocrites.

  324. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    Germany (Macron’s sister country) Takes First Step Towards Legalizing Rape Committed By Muslim Men

    http://www.returnofkings.com/120949/germany-takes-first-step-towards-legalizing-rape-when-committed-by-muslim-men

    “The reason for lack of conviction was that the perpetrator was presumed to not culturally understand what rape was. As described, due to the “mentality of the Turkish cultural circle” (note Turkey is more than 95% Muslim), the Turk was simply participating, in his opinion, “wild sex”. In the justice’s words, “A conviction is not possible, because no intention is demonstrable.”

    The defendant maintained that he would never do such a thing because he himself had female relatives. The victim herself, who personally described her direct refusal and the subsequent brutality, when asked “Could it be that the defendant thought you were in agreement?”, agreed. Acknowledged as a “heavy blow” for the injured party, the violent sex was not considered rape and the charge dropped..”

  326. PresidentPaul! says:

    Trump should have just start firing generals until his people got security clearance.

    If there were no Generals left then promote new ones up.

  327. Tina says:

    If he was a security risk, why was his top security clearance not stripped?

    You need to answer that question, jebot.

  330. DW says:

    “BREAKING: Judge throws out Aaron Hernandez’s murder conviction

    A Massachusetts judge agreed Tuesday to toss out Aaron Hernandez’s 2015 murder conviction after the former NFL player killed himself in April. Before his death, Hernandez was in the middle of an appeal. But his suicide essentially left his case unresolved, allowing a court to vacate his conviction entirely as part of a legal loophole. Prosecutors tried to stop the move, but Judge E. Susan Garsh said the court “has no choice” but to comply with the law.”

    I guess I need Bitterlaw to explain this one to me as I don’t quite get it. He was found guilty, convicted…sentenced to prison. How does Hernandez’ suicide change it?

    Offing himself was essentially admitting guilt and giving himself the sentence that was just. So if Hernandez faked his suicide, and the body found was stunt double, would he now be free and clear and playing for the Patriots in the fall?

  331. jason says:

    Terrible justice…

    Victims families will be left without recourse.

  332. DW says:

    349 – exactly, all sorts of dominoes fall with the vacated conviction.

    From a legal standpoint, Hernandez has committed no crimes, even though he gave himself the death penalty.

  333. jason says:

    Kamala Harris, President

    Must be a joke article on drudge.”

    I am not laughing.

    I laughed when a glorified community rabble rouser who never even ran a lemonade stand announced for President.

    After all, Obama got eight years.

  339. Robbie says:

    Isn’t it standard procedure to vacate sentences when the one convicted and appealing dies before all appeals have been exhuasted? Ken Lay’s conviction was vacated because he died before all his appeals had been exhausted.

  340. Robbie says:

    Kamala Harris has been my guess for the Democrats nominee in 2020 since last December. Don’t discount her. Race is a powerful driver among the Democrat base.

  341. NYCmike says:

    Ok, I stand corrected. I had never heard of that happening before…….

  342. Robbie says:

    Eliana Johnson, formerly of NRO and now at Politico, writes today that Bannon has been attempting to undermine General McMaster. Jared Kushner’s allies have leaked to Joe Scarborough and others at NBC that Trump likes McMaster very well.

    If this is true, the battle between Kushner and Bannon continues. More importantly, it’s sad to see a respected general like McMaster used as a pawn.

  349. Tina says:

    And according to nbc sports,

    The outcome could make it impossible for the Patriots to deny further payment of the signing bonus that Hernandez earned in 2012, and likewise to reclaim all money he earned under the contract extension. Given the acquittal for the double murder that came five days before his death and the expungement of the murder conviction, Hernandez in the eyes of the law is not guilty of murder.

  350. Tina says:

    This, he could get his money owed to him by the patriots.

  357. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Find it interesting that the Democrats are such critics of Wikileaks and the leaked E-mails about Hillary, yet at the same time former President Obama commuted the sentence of Chelsea Manning, who leaked sensitive documents to Wikileaks, and who is about to be released. The hypocrisy is incredible.

    “A former Army intelligence analyst and transgender woman, Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison after being convicted in 2013 of stealing 750,000 pages of documents and videos before leaking them to WikiLeaks — one of the largest and most embarrassing leaks of classified information in US history.
    But then-President Barack Obama commuted Manning’s sentence in January, thereby providing her with an early release date.”

  360. Wes says:

    Jenkins hits Manchin hard in thd first ad after announcing for Senate. WV last had two Republican Senators for eight months in 1958. The Dem obliteration of two thirds of the GOP Senators up that year and nearly a quarter of the House GOP caucus effectively eliminated GOP strength in the state except for the occasional gubernatorial victory until Republicans finally started slowly gaining ground locally in 2000. It would be nice take out that fraud named Manchin next year as part of solidifying the current GOP Senate majority.

  361. NYCmike says:

    Is Robbie going to give daily reports on the National Front in France?

    Maybe “maggie” will start reporting on them as well…

  362. Wes says:

    Walt, thoughts on Jenkins as a candidate? I know you expressed a preference for Morrissey, but with Jenkins in early, I’d hope Morrissey decides instead to challenge Justice in 2020.

  363. Wes says:

    Mike, how many times should Jenkins make offensive misogynist comments if he genuinely hopes to unseat Manchin?

  398. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    Tina is nothing more than a partisan hack. Trump is undermining all our safety and the independence and credibility of our intelligence agencies with such a quick and unprecedented firing.

    Noone believes he gives a crap about Hillary’s emails. They certainly don’t seem like grounds for being fired.

    The honest GOP senators better help appoint a special investigator to get to the bottom of this or there will be hell to pay among those of us with brains and hearts.

    This is not a partisan issue. We need the truth and Donald Trump for some reason is afraid of it coming out. Special Investigator.

    NOW.

  407. lisab says:

    Perhaps since clapper confirmed no collision, trump was able to make his move.

  414. Tina says:

    Sen. Schumer says the President should have fired Director Comey even earlier (when he first came into office)

    Yeah right, schumah, you are mad that the muh russia story is done. He had to keep comedy for those purposes. Once the hiax fell apart, it was time to fire comdy.

  425. Robbie says:

    Firing Comey was the proper decision. Full stop.

    The manner in which the firing was handled seems a lot like the issuance of the first travel ban. Rushed.

    Hopefully, a new director will be named before the end of the week in order to change the storyline.

    I would suggest Michael Mukasey, GWB’s third AG.

  426. Walt says:

    “Walt, thoughts on Jenkins as a candidate?”

    Wes,

    Served with Jenkins in the legislature.
    He was a conservative Dem, good guy, reasonable.

    He switched to R to run in WV CD3 against Rahall and beat him.

    Congressman Jenkins has $1.3M in his campaign account.

    WV AG Morrisey (R) cannot use ANY of what he has left over from his State AG race in a Federal election.

    Jenkins should do well in 3rd CD and if Morrisey does NOT run in R primary against Jenkins, then Jenkins will do well in most of the WV 2nd CD (probably not do as well in Kanawha County where Charleston is).

    During the 2016 flood, Jenkins was very active in organizing help for flood vicitims/relief and was on the ground in the flood zone. That counts for a lot in WV.

  427. Robbie says:

    If true, this speaks to how lacking the political radar of the White House staff is.

    CNN Breaking News?
    @cnnbrk
    6 minutes ago

    .@DanaBashCNN reports that the White House did not think James Comey’s firing would be a “political explosion”

  428. Robbie says:

    Walt

    Thanks for that on-the-ground report about Jenkins. Very informative.

  429. Tina says:

    If it were rushed, he would have done it on 1/20. You would have screamed muh russia id he did that.

  430. Tina says:

    And the firing is not rushed, despite waphat fake news says. The rationale is well documenetrf by the memos.

  431. Tina says:

    Comedy was not well liked inside the agency. He ripped it apart when he failed to prosecute hillary.

    Re humas, the fbi made a correction today. Comedy phuqed up that portion of the investigation.

  432. Tina says:

    John Podesta @johnpodesta
    The American public is getting mildly nauseous listening to Jim Comey

    Et tu, podesta.

    Delete your tweet.

  433. Tina says:

    Drat mccabe needs to go next. He is worse than comedy.

  434. Robbie says:

    Of course this decision was rushed. Only two or three Senators were made aware of the firing and just 15 minutes before it broke. On top of that, the White House completely misjudged the politics of it by believing Democrats wouldn’t complain due to their previous comments. And if the politics team was on top of their game, they would have announced the replacement simultaneously with Comey’s firing. Instead, it’s another media firestorm with no coordinated messaging from the White House or its allies.

    Firing Comey was right. Not being ready for the fallout was not.

  435. NYCmike says:

    Bannon fired Comey!

    Another “botched” Bannon Blundering Balderdash!

  436. NYCmike says:

    Robbie keeps mentioning the first, “botched” immigration EO.

    He NEVER mentions the second, “more successful, perfectly written” EO that was implemented a day after Trump signed it……..

    Under your line of thinking, they’ll do it better when the fire the next FBI director.

  438. Tina says:

  439. Tina says:

    Bs, rushed decision woukd have been on 1/20. He is nearly four months intomthe administration. If he did it right away, it would have been muh russia.

    He had to prove that muh russia is and was a hoax.

    Then take care of comedy.

    Now, he must take care of mccabe. Mccabe is the political hack. Comedy was just incompetent.

  440. Tina says:

    Dan Merica, her thighness has no comment at this time.

    So, schumah, drunk, and other rs agreee with the firing.

    There is tripartisanship

  443. Robbie says:

    Poor Kellyanne Conway is having another rough interview on CNN. She tries, but she is not an effective public advocate for Trump.

    After they find a new FBI Director, the next job should be to find a communications team that can do a reasonable job.

    475 – agree. Trump’s campaign seemed to stabilize upon her arrival.

  452. Robbie says:

    Jason remains obsessed with Jeb. He brings him up all of the time.

    As for Kellyanne Conway, she burned her credibility the first weekend of this presidency when she used the term “alternative facts”. She then compounded her problems when she said at 5 PM Trump had full confidence in Flynn only to have Trump fire Flyn at 9 PM.

    There’s a reason the Trump White House has generally restricted her media appearances to FoxNews. She wasn’t effective answering anything other than softball questions.

    She’s a fine person, but she is not an effective surrogate for Trump.

    Number four is a major issue, not accessing the drat server.

    And 5 is equalky bad. An investigator makes an error like that? Wtf.

  460. Tina says:

    And polls, we all believe the polls, comedy had a 2 to 1 unfavorable rating,

    Unloved, hated internal,y at the fbi, and incompetent

  461. Tina says:

    And this incompetent offical did the following

    Initially, last year, FBI Director James Comey was challenging to gauge. However, it didn’t take long to discover his political corruption, and see his political agenda was all about himself – not the application of law.

    The FBI (Comey) never questioned Hillary Clinton under oath.
    The FBI (Comey) never recorded or documented the interview with Hillary Clinton.
    The FBI (Comey) never admitted to warnings from Florida LEO (Orlando shooting)
    The FBI (Comey) used bogus British dossier to gain FISA warrant to monitor Trump.

  462. Tina says:

    And. More screw ups

    March 20th hearing Comey stated there was an investigation into intelligence leaks to the media. However, on May 8th a likeky keaker in sjw yates and clapper admitted that they were not interviewed.

  463. lisab says:

    I don’t see any problem in firing Comey.

    The investigation is by the FBI, not him. It can continue.

    But the Dems can’t miss an opportunity to pretend they are outraged.

  465. lisab says:

    The sheer spinelessness of GOP lawmakers is staggering. It’s no wonder Trump stomped the entire field of establishment Republicans.

  487. NYCmike says:

    Ok, be well.

    -Ok, that makes me think it is the twitter address with the picture of the lamb on it……which is really weird, because the person writing on that handle sounds to me like a 25 year old know it all.

    I thought MD was a 50 year old know it all?

    -Agree with Tim. Plenty of horsesh*t. And no evidence…..except for the Wikileaks emails, which neither Tim, NOR HILLARY, have said aren’t hers.

    The TRUTH did set us free! FREE from 4 more years of a Democrat hack President, and free from that nasty *itch who accomplished nothing in life, other than getting some smooth-talking southern boy to give her a ring.

  502. NYCmike says:

    “He had the right to terminate Comey, but the manner in which it was done made him look like a jerk.”

    -I guess when you live in a 50 mile area with 10million other humans, your idea of what “look like a jerk” is radically different from those that live in other places (yes, San Diego is populated, but not in comparison to metro NYC).

    There was never a good time to fire Comey. The media will always go with the conspiracy angle, despite the testimony given by the man himself.

  503. NYCmike says:

    “Who needs a trap, Trump is totally capable of falling into a ditch by his own volition.”

    -This I agree with.

    But, he is also capable of digging himself out…..and has done so many times over the course of his life.

  504. PresidentPaul! says:

    Comey fired?!

    Does this mean we will finally get someone in their that will investigate crooked Hillary, Lynche, Lerner, the leakers etc?

  505. PresidentPaul! says:

  507. PresidentPaul! says:

    There is no 11.

    Anti-Trump is already 10 of 10 rating.

    They can’t go up so it doesn’t matter what Trump does. That’s why Trump mocks Schumer and pocahontas on Twitter.

    I really don’t like Trump speaking about history, because I don’t think it makes him look smart, but it is funny that what he says is mainly true, and Robbie just joins the hyperventilating of the media to disparage him.

  550. Phil says:

    Trump is indeed a mess. I suspect he may very well cost us the House. Certainly not a given but extremely possible and that is saying a mouthful considering the way the House districts are drawn.

    Trump thinks he has it rough now, wait until Pelosi and company get control of the committees and the power to launch investigations. Combine those investigations and subpoena power with the daily drumbeat of amplification by the MSM of all things anti Trump and you have an approval rating in the mid 30s. No one can govern effectively with that lack of support which of course is the left’s objective. Impeachment becomes a real possibility although removal by a Republican Senate ain’t happening. Doesn’t matter. His presidency is essentially over and that very well could lead to a hard leftist winning the WH in 2020.

    Still, I wouldn’t change my vote last year. Hillary with the levers of power on top of two terms of leftist Obama would have so packed the courts that over the next decade we wouldn’t know this country. Just couldn’t sit back and allow the Supreme Court and circuit courts to become rubber stamps for Hillary’s open border, statist agenda. At least the radicalization of the federal courts has been put off four years.

    Rosenstein in his letter to Trump takes issue with Comey’s decision to send a letter just days before the November election revealing newly discovered Clinton emails. “When federal agents and prosecutors quietly open a criminal investigation, we are not concealing anything; we are simply following the longstanding policy that we refrain from publicizing non-public information,” the letter states.

  556. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    3. Comey should not have released his letter about the new emails in October potentially affecting the election.

    You mean when the media decided the election because GHWB looked at his watch in a debate, didn’t know the price of milk, and a rogue prosecutor indicted members of his administration a couple days before the election?

    – Laughable, but not surprising from you.

    The White House miscalculated the PR of this just like they did with the issuance of the first travel ban. A popular decision has become a political firestorm.

    Trump remains his own worst enemy. You just refuse to see it as you have often refused to see the mistakes of the past like supporting Cruz’s shameless self promotional government shutdown in 2013.

  576. Paul says:

    Perhaps because the whole reason for firing Comey is a ridiculous smokescreen?

    Suck it up, move on.

    Same goes for Jeb coc-ksucker like Robbie.

    The main reason Trump fired Comey is that he should NOT have released the October letter regarding Wiener’s laptop and emails… according to the letter. How many of you actually believe this BS?

    https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/3711116/White-House-Fires-James-Comey.pdf

  580. Trump says:

    Cruz’s 2013 shutdown led to 2014 gains in congress and the Trump presidency.

    No wonder the Jeb coc-sucker is triggered.

  581. NYCmike says:

    “We are in May of 2017 and the election is November 2018.

    There will be a lot of twists and turns until then.”

    -Once again, jason adopts my outlook regarding politics.

  582. Paul says:

    Trump is just trying to help Hillary, bless his heart. And you liberals aren’t letting him do that 🙂

  583. Trump says:

    “The 2014 elections resulted in the largest Republican majority in the entire country, with 54 seats in in the Senate, 247 (56.78%) in the House, 31 governorships (62%), and 68 state legislative chambers. Moreover, Republicans gained their largest majority in the House since 1928, the largest majority in Congress overall since 1928, and the largest majority of state legislatures since 1928.”

    If the Jeb sucker’s brain was not bleached by Jeb sucking, he would be on his knees praising Cruz.

  584. NYCmike says:

    “The White House miscalculated the PR of this just like they did with the issuance of the first travel ban. A popular decision has become a political firestorm.”

    -Ok, we have some semblance of sanity. Robbie mentioned “the first travel ban” BUT did not include the words “Bannon” and “botched”.

    Old dogs CAN learn new tricks!

  585. NYCmike says:

    Robbie will ignore comments #’d 607 & 610.

  586. Robbie says:

    Yes, I do ignore soccer guru. Sorry to disappoint NYCMike.

    According to RCP, on September 15, 2013 Democrats held a 1 point lead in the generic ballot question. By October 27, 2013, Democrats held a 6.6 point lead in the generic ballot.

    Ted Cruz’s phony Obamacare shutdown helped launch his presidential campaign, but it had a strong negative impact on the perception of the Republican Party.

    Fortunately, once the government re-opened after Cruz’s idiocy, the press was finally able to focus on the complete failure of the Obamacare website. That quickly allowed the generic ballot question to recover where it was before Cruz’s self aggrandizement.

  587. Phil says:

    With friends like Burr and McCain Trump doesn’t need any enemies. Of course, McCain has never been a friend to the Republican Party. There is a reason Kerry offered the VP slot to McCain.

  588. Bitterlaw says:

    Why can’t we just agree that Trump sucks and that Hillary would have been worse?

  589. NYCmike says:

    “Yes, I do ignore……..”

    -Add “Trump” to the list.

    Gateway
    Drudge
    Levin
    Hannity
    Instapundit
    Althouse
    “Trump”

  590. Phil says:

    McCain I get. Burr, I don’t get.

  591. Phil says:

    Trump sucks and Hillary would have been worse.

    Yep. I’d vote for Trump all over again.

  592. NYCmike says:

    With a name like “Burr”, it is most appropriate.

  593. Bitterlaw says:

    Zzzzzzzzz. McCain’s American Conservative Union rating in 2016 was 88. There was also a reason that McCain did not accept Kerry’s offer to be VP. McCain is a Republican whether Phil and Tina like him or not.

  594. NYCmike says:

    #619 – Agreed.

    To be honest, what Democrat would have nominated a SC Justice from a list given to them from The Heritage Foundation?

    Trump won the primary, fair and square. If you didn’t vote for him, you were helping the Democrat.

  595. NYCmike says:

    “McCain’s American Conservative Union rating in 2016 was 88”

    -So that makes McCain a Republican??

    Two questions:

    What was Rand Paul’s?

    What was McCains ranking in 2015?

    Did any Senator mentioned above “moderate” in 2016?

  596. jason says:

    -Once again, jason adopts my outlook regarding politics.”

    Zzzzzzzzz… these sordid attempts to sully my reputation are like water on a duck’s back to me….

  597. NYCmike says:

    Hmmm, is it odd that one Senator would swing from 67 up to 88, or was it an electi……….

  598. NYC says:

    -So that makes McCain a Republican??”

    Nah, you have to give more money to Dems than to Reps for me to think you are a Republican.

  599. jason says:

    John McCain has done more for his country, for conservatives principles and for the Republican Party than any 1,000 deadenders you can assemble.

  600. NYCmike says:

    “John McCain has done more for his country, for conservatives principles and for the Republican Party than any 1,000 deadenders you can assemble.”

    -Was the question only about the years from 1960-1990?

    Should we talk about the S&L crisis at all?

  601. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – Since Paul calls himself a Libertarian, I will take him at his word.

    McCain’s lifetime rating is 81. Hardly a Democrat.

  602. Trump says:

    Jeb coc-sucker’s brain is really bleached out of existence.

    Moron blabs about fake polls like they show anything. And then he links to something that shows actual results for GOP exceeding final polls by 4 points.

    Is there a point to this moron’s contortions?

    As anyone with half a brain knows, the only polls that matter are on Election Day.

    In real life, Cruz’s shutdown had either positive or no impact on GOP fortunes.

  603. Trump says:

    McCain is an idiot, should have been in jail for his role in Keating five.

  604. Trump says:

    If the Jeb coc-sucker Robbie doesn’t get paid by the DNC, he should be.

  605. Robbie says:

    Soccer guru is what happens when a woman smokes during pregnancy.

  606. Bitterlaw says:

    Robbie – Remember when Soccer Guru admitted that he didn’t actually follow soccer? Classic.

  607. wvally says:

    Or when a man gets no action in real life and trolls the internet to get off.

  608. jason says:

    These “suburban Philly lawyers” get a lot of action….

    “A longtime suburban Philadelphia defense attorney convicted of having raped an unconscious client at her apartment has been sentenced to 10 to 30 years in prison. Fifty-seven-year-old Vincent Cirillo Jr. was sentenced Monday in Montgomery County Court. He said he was “ashamed and embarrassed” and had disgraced the name of his father, a late Superior Court judge.”

  609. Bitterlaw says:

    Or when a man gets no action in real life and trolls the internet to get off.

    Damn. I am always proud that I forced a female A-hole upon the members.

  610. Bitterlaw says:

    That guy is a dirtbag. I hope he does the full 30 years but he won’t.

  611. jason says:

    McCain is an idiot, should have been in jail for his role in Keating five.”

    When soccer moron does 1/100000 of what McCain did for his country I will listen to him whine about McCain.

    Until then, GFY.

  612. jason says:

    ” I am always proud that I forced a female A-hole upon the members”

    Frisky lawyer comment of the day?

  613. jason says:

    Indonesia has a “moderate image”?

    Who knew?

    “BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (AP) — Shariah prosecutors in Indonesia’s Aceh province say two men on trial for gay se-x should each be punished with 80 lashes, in another blow to the country’s moderate image after a top Christian official was imprisoned for blasphemy.”

  614. Robbie says:

    The FBI has opened the leak machine on Trump. The WSJ, NYT, and WaPo all report Comey asked Rosenstein for more resources for the Russia investigation last week. Predictably, the press is going bonkers over the story.

    The political inexperience of the Trump White House is on full display. The only time they’ve really had their ducks in a row was the Neil Gorsuch nomination.

  615. jason says:

    ” I am always proud that I forced a female A-hole upon the members”

    Trump would be crucified for saying this.

    Bitter gets away with it, no problem.

    Unfair world.

  616. jason says:

    Huh, Wobbie, the investigation wasn’t cancelled. Comey was not actually doing any investigation, it was people in the dept that are still there. The investigation is still ongoing with Comey or without him.

  617. jason says:

    And Rosenstein worked in the Obama admin, he is no Trumpbot.

  618. Bitterlaw says:

    Jason – I am a dedicated volunteer for the youth of my town. I met my wife when we were 22 and we have been together 27 years. I have a fine public image.

    – I know that, but the press is suggesting Trump fired Comey because he wouldn’t shut down the investigation.

  620. Robbie says:

    One thing I continue to believe is, unless Trump gets his White House operation in order, his presidency will continue to be hampered by miscues and miscalculations. At this point, I think Priebus, Bannon, Spicer, and Conway all need to go. These first three months have been a hash.

  621. Trump says:

    Moron Jeb cocsucker continues to believe lots of nonsense.

    So what’s new?

  622. Trump says:

    G o f your mother, la raza pimp.

    Nobody is trying to make you listen.

    I will reiterate that McCain is an idiot who should be in jail for his role in the Keating five. He is just butt hurt that Trump is president, while he failed spectacularly.

  623. Trump says:

    Nobody listens to McCain unless he disses republicans.

    A great useful idiot.

  624. NYCmike says:

    ” These first three months have been a hash.”

    -Again, who is saying this, other than the DC/NY/liberal media, and the die-hard socialists who wanted Bernie?

    Trump is Trump. He is not perfect. But he is NOT HILLARY, and he is NOT DUBYA. He will fight back against BS from the media. Polls before the election were crap for a reason – people like a winner, but don’t like to admit they like Trump.

    BUT, he showed he is a winner, and the voters responded.

  625. Robbie says:

    If true, Trump was very naïve about what he was walking into.

    No value except as a GOP basher.

    The Jeb cocsucker regurgitating unsourced nonsense. So what’s new?

  630. Robbie says:

    NYCMike

    I’m saying the first three months have been a hash. His approval rating in RCP is 43%. That’s not my fault. That’s his fault. And even if you like many of the things he’s done, Trump continues to give his enemies the ammunition they need to go after him.

    “BUT, he showed he is a winner, and the voters responded.”

    As for this comment, now the people are responding to his governance and they aren’t viewing him as a winner.

  631. Trump says:

    No evidence to support that trump is not a winner. Another Jeb cocsucker staple.

    “Trump is grappling with the harsh reality of governing and media scrutiny, which he has told friends he hoped would eventually abate, per R”

  638. NYCmike says:

    “– Just his record low approval rating for a new president just three months on the job.”

    -Oh Lord, did you not see the poll numbers on Election Day….he was supposed to lose in a landslide!

    BUT HE DID NOT, because he is toxic, in a normal political sense, but people are increasingly realizing that “normal political sense” is crap, and only enriches the career politicians (like McCain).

    Lots of heads stuck in the sand as is usually the case when bad news hits at HHR.

  643. Trump says:

    What bad news, dic& wad?

  644. Trump says:

    Nobody’s head is stuck anywhere, except yours, which is so far up Jeb’s as- that you are coming out of his nose.

  645. Bitterlaw says:

    Once again McCain is trying to placate his captors.

    McCain did not placate the North Vietnamese. He refused an early release. GFY.

    He is not being held captive in D.C. Comparing his service in the Senate to being a POW is pretty appalling even for BF.

  646. Bitterlaw says:

    1988 was the first year that I could vote for President. I was proud of all of my Presidential votes (except for Trump but that was a lesser of 2 evils choice). I was honored to vote for GHWB and McCain.

  647. Trump says:

    And nobody cares what you are proud of.

    Meaningless virtue signaling.

  648. Bitterlaw says:

    Poor Trump. So many posts and nothing to say. keep trying.

    Normal DC b*llsh*t is going on, that is about it.

  651. NYCmike says:

    “I was honored to vote for GHWB and McCain.”

    -McCain AND Palin, yes. She would have made a difference.

    GHWB took Reagan’s policies and went a different way – opportunity lost (for the Bushes, maybe an opportunity gained??).

  652. wvally says:

    Priebus, Bannon, Spicer, and Conway…

    ***

    Reshuffling his inner circle won’t change the dynamic. It is what it is. Press and most of Washington will always hate him and he’ll keep being cringe-worthy. The public dislikes the press and the dems as much as him so its a wash.

    His appointments are mostly great, and it seems they will all have leeway to do as they see fit.

    My questions for 2018 are:
    -Will economy be better or worse next year?
    -Will Congress achieve anything before mid-terms?

  653. jason says:

    know that, but the press is suggesting Trump fired Comey because he wouldn’t shut down the investigation.”

    Right, but the difference between you and me is that you are a MSM sycophant who hangs on their every word.

    I prefer to think for myself.

  654. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    Notice what wvally does – she does NOT stroke Trump as never being wrong, but she also does NOT regurgitate what the media says.

    Trump has done plenty wrong, but he has done plenty right, and the media will never report that.

    The media made Reagan look like a monster, for sh*ts sake. How gullible can you be?!?

  655. Bitterlaw says:

    I never liked Palin. She was just part of the ticket.

  656. Robbie says:

    This poll is an outlier, but Qpac generic ballot is brutal.

    D- 54
    R- 38

  657. Robbie says:

    “They did this to Reagan too” is hardly a credible defense of Trump’s actions. Trump’s not Reagan.

  658. Waingro says:

    #684, not just an “outlier”. It’s D+10 with only 24% registered Repubs and 35% “independents” I’m sure many of whom are Berniecrats. Stick it in the garbage dumpster.

  659. NYCmike says:

    “Trump’s not Reagan.”

    -Exactly, that is the point.

    The media will do this to any Republican, so a 43% approval rating in May 2017 is not the end of the world. STOP mentioning it until about May of next year, then maybe it will matter.

  660. NYCmike says:

    Robbie to say Waingro is “delusional” in 3….2….1….

  661. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Former President Obama, after partying with billionaires at resorts and luxury yachts with huge carbon emissions, flew off to Italy on a private plan — and did an interview published in the NYT telling people they have to change the way they eat to reduce carbon emissions. Here is a quote:

    “Mr. Obama observed that most people do not think of food as a source of pollution. “Because food is so close to us and is part of our family and is part of what we do every single day, people, I think, are more resistant to the idea of government or bureaucrats telling them what to eat, how to eat and how to grow,” he said.”

    “The powerful agriculture lobby in Washington, he said, can also hinder change. “Historically in the United States, the one area where Democrats and Republicans agree is on the agriculture committees, because the members usually come from agricultural states and they’re very good at joining across party lines to protect the interests of food producers,” Mr. Obama said. “It makes for a difficult political dynamic for us being able to shape rational policy.” ”

    Whatever Trump’s faults, they come no where close to the sickening hypocrisy and self-righteous pompousness of Obama.

  662. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    In the NYT story, Obama was quoted as making the following statement:

    “Now, he said, those emissions are starting to take their toll on food production itself. “Our changing climate is already making it more difficult to produce food,” he said. “We’ve already seen shrinking yields and rising food prices.” ”

    This is flat out false. A comment to the article called the lie out:

    ‘Now, (fmr. President Obama) said, those emissions are starting to take their toll on food production itself. . . “We’ve already seen shrinking yields and rising food prices.”’ Available data on crop yields and calorie shortage does not support the claim of shrinking yields and the evidence is also clear that global hunger has decreased significantly in most parts of the developing world over the past 25 years.

    According to data on the World Bank’s website collected from the Food and Agricultural Organization, global average cereal yields in 2014 (the last year for which data is available) were 3907 kg. per hectare, the highest yield ever recorded and an increase of 19% from 2004. The 2004 figure was in turn the highest average yield ever recorded up to that year. Between 1980 and 2014, an era in which average global temperatures significantly increased, average per hectare cereal yields increased globally by 70%.

    The same World Bank site shows that the average food deficit, measured in kilocalories per person per day, fell by 30% between 2006 and 2016. The decline in the food deficit has been significant across the developing world over the past quarter century even in most of Sub-Saharan Africa where the average food deficit fell from 249 to 130 kilocalories between 1992 and 2016.”

    Is the liberal press, who regularly accuses Trump of false statements. going to point out what Obama saids was false? Of course not.

  663. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Trump is tweeting up a storm. He is on the attack against Senator Blumenthal:

    @realDonaldTrump

    Watching Senator Richard Blumenthal speak of Comey is a joke. “Richie” devised one of the greatest military frauds in U.S. history. For….

    years, as a pol in Connecticut, Blumenthal would talk of his great bravery and conquests in Vietnam – except he was never there. When….

    caught, he cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness…and now he is judge & jury. He should be the one who is investigated for his acts.

  665. lisab says:

    the fbi director acted stupidly

  666. AlbertHodges says:

    This place never changes. Just the names of the characters repeating the same old lines and playing the same old parts.

    President Trump is working hard to make this country great again. He has assembled an ALL-STAR cabinet. Who the hell here is unhappy with Gorsuch?

    He has done more in 4 months for prolifers than ANYONE since Roe v. Wade in 1973.

    Firing Comey only will make him MORE popular.

    Please people. Stop the acid.

  667. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    t693. “The fbi director acted stupidly>”

    The FBI director had too much baggage from the election to function in an effective manner. Trump should have talked to him and told him he needed to resign; if it came to terminating he should have been informed before everyone else.

  668. Robbie says:

    According to the NYT, both Reince Priebus AND Steve Bannon argued against firing Comey at this time. We’re through the looking glass when Bannon is among those offering the sane advice.

  669. Phil says:

    The NYT?

    Must be true then.

  670. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    When you get paid big bucks to say the words “Your fired”, it gets to be habitual. He can’t help himself.

    However, is there really anyone who thinks Comey would have kept his job in a Clinton administration?

  671. NYCmike says:

    Heh.

    Robbie agrees with Bannon on this one, so he must be right this time.

    Every other time, he is an alt-right, possibly racist, anti-semitic, homophobic neanderthal who MUST be ignored.

    Maybe, just maybe, Trump/Bannon said “Let’s really torture them and say that we disagreed on this.”

  672. Robbie says:

    Trump would be extremely wise to pick a new FBI Director pronto and preferably one who is certain to receive a near unanimous vote. Otherwise, this story will continue to snowball against him. And yes, this story is snowballing against him right now. This is the first real DC feeding frenzy I can remember since Pat Fitzgerald’s indictment of Scooter Libby.

    The Trump White House needs to change the subject.

  673. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “The Trump White House needs to change the subject.”

    No I think we need to discuss it further. In particular, the Democrats have been blasting Comey for causing Clinton to lose the election. Certainly Clinton would have fired him, so why are they so upset Trump did?

  674. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Only a short time ago, Hillary was blaming Comey for her lost election. That would be pretty upsetting, and the rumors are that Hillary is unpleasant when upset.

    Am surprised when Comey was fired that Hillary didn’t call Trump and say “Thank you Donald.”

  675. jason says:

    “According to the NYT, both Reince Priebus AND Steve Bannon argued against firing Comey at this time.”

    BREAKING NEWS.

    WOBBIE AGREES WITH BANNON!!

  676. jason says:

    So can we put to bed Wobbie’s theory that Bannon runs the WH?

    From the mouths of idiots you sometimes get the truth.

  677. jason says:

    Obama was at 38% a bunch of times during his Presidency.

    Should I check on them to see if Wobbie described any of them as “brutal”?

    Or should I not bother?

    And while he never achieved extremely high ratings, neither did he achieve extreme lows. At various points in his presidency his approval ratings dipped to 38%. This included in August and October 2011 after contentious negotiations over the debt ceiling limit and subsequent downgrading of the U.S. credit rating.

    Obama’s approval ratings also fell to 38% in September 2014, shortly after the Islamic State terrorist group released videos showing the beheadings of U.S. journalists captured overseas.”

  680. jason says:

    Trump can’t complain about McCain. Attacking his POW record was one of the stupidest political moves ever. He survived it, but these things have a way of biting you later.

    Is that what the NYT says?

  682. Robbie says:

    SDC

    Dwelling on a story that has become a firestorm is the reverse of crisis management 101. Pointing out the hypocrisy of Democrats may please Trump’s base, but it does little to help Trump get back on track. Rather than talking about Obamacare repeal and tax reform, Trump is once again stuck on this bogus, yes bogus, Russia story.

    Name a new FBI director and let the story peter out over the weekend. Any time Trump is stuck on the Russia story, he’s losing ground.

    McConnell and the R leadership is holding firm and not getting on Wobbie’s band wagon, so the MSM can “feed frenzy” all they want.

    Rep. Chaffetz asks Justice Department Inspector General to “expand the scope of his review to include the decision to fire Director Comey.”

  686. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    710. Don’t necessary agree, but you have a valid argument.

  687. jason says:

    Is that what the NYT says?

    – That’s what I say.”

    How nice… stereo!

  688. Robbie says:

    Jason

    What bandwagon am I on?

  689. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    714. Mean “necessarily” in place of “necessary.”

  690. jason says:

    ep. Chaffetz asks Justice Department Inspector General to “expand the scope of his review to include the decision to fire Director Comey.”

    Zzzzzz…actually, Trump didn’t need a “reason” to fire Comey.

    None, zero, zilch.

    He could have said I didn’t like his haircut. Or I hated his dog. Or he could say I just felt like it.

    The idea that Trump needed “justification” to fire Comey is a figment of the MSM’s and Wobbie’s imagination, or do I repeat myself?

  691. jason says:

    Jason

    What bandwagon am I on?”

    The MSM’s….

    There is NOTHING they say you don’t agree with and don’t regurgitate here.

    You really are pathetic, did you ever have an original thought? I mean really, did you ever try to have an opinion you didn’t read on a liberal media outlet?

  692. Robbie says:

    Whoa! I don’t think Trump needed a justification to fire Comey. In fact, I wrote last night I thought firing him was the right thing to do.

  693. Robbie says:

    If I have my TV turned on, it’s on Golf Channel or ESPN. Yet, I’m somehow barfing up the MSM talking points? Please! It’s not like I’m telling everyone what Stephen A Smith thinks or Brandel Chamblee thinks.

  694. Trump says:

    According to the NYT….

    I hope the Jeb cocsucker gets paid for this drivel.

    NYT lies. All the time.

  695. Robbie says:

    Jason’s MO. When someone doesn’t share his opinion, he immediately claims that person is pathetic.

  696. Phil says:

    So the House now wants to investigate the firing of Comey?

    LOL Why? Trump was perfectly within his constitutional rights. You don’t “investigate” legal personnel moves. The director serves at the pleasure of the President. The ten year term means nothing if the President wants him gone.

    We have entered bizarre zone.

  697. Trump says:

    The GOP congress is trying to deflect from zero accomplishments.

    Voters have long memories.

  698. Trump says:

    GOP congress.

    Even less popular than syphilis.

  699. Chicon says:

    Lol….Robbie tells us for months that Trump is easily influenced by advisors. Bad Trump means Bannon pulling the strings. Good Trump, his son in law at the wheel. Funny when a whole narrative goes down the drain.

  700. Trump says:

    The Jeb cocsucker ‘s narratives have a pattern of fizzling out.

    That’s what happens with lies.

  701. Trump says:

    Where was chaffetz in investigating Hilary’s shenanigans?

    Hiding under his desk?

    Fake news.

    The Jeb cocsucker laps it up.

  709. Chicon says:

    735 – thank God you found the culprits. Not a chance Trump knows how to tie his shoes on his own.

  710. Trump says:

    If the nyt and wapo had such reliable source in the White House, how come they were taken by surprise about Comey’s firing?

    After all, trump had the Comey letter in his pocket for days.

  711. Trump says:

    The msm keeps feeding him him unadulterated sh$t, and like the stupid dog that he is, the Jeb coc-sucker laps it up.

  712. Bitterlaw says:

    Kelly Ayotte for FBI Director. Come on, Trump. Do it.

  713. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Its not helping the Democrats that social media and twitter and full of videos of Democratic leaders demanding that Comey should resign.

    Senator Bernie Sanders seems adamant, convinced me. Thank you Trump for making Bernie’s wish come true.

  714. Bitterlaw says:

    I can’t remember if it was a controversy when GWB or Obama fired a group of US Attorneys. The other party went nuts over it. However, the President could just wake up and say, “I’m firing every single member of the Executive Branch today” and that is it.

  715. Tina says:

    Bill clintune fired an fbi director.

  716. Cash Cow TM says:

    The news this evening said that today is National Lost Sock Day where you remember all the individual socks lost in the washer, dryer or wherever.

    Srsly.

    I immediately thought of Mr. Vito.

  717. Chicon says:

    740 – that would be a good play. She’s a talented person. And not a flame thrower.

  718. Wes says:

    If Trump appointed Ayotte, some Deadender supported by NYCMike would work overtime to undermine and defeat her nomination. Deadenders despise non-loony pols.

  719. Cash Cow TM says:

    Bitter,

    Walt took his name off DJTs short list for new FBI chief. Walt said he had too much mulch to spread, voles to trap, and other outside work.

    Perhaps he will also throw his support to Ayotte.

  720. Wes says:

    Now of course if during the confirmation process, Kelly Ayotte said God intends pregnancy to result from rape, then NYCMike would highly likely be on board with her nomination.

  721. Chicon says:

    You might be a deadender if you oppose Ayotte. Of course, it is not a political position.

  722. Phil says:

    Ayotte would be a masterful appointment. Would serve to deecalate things. Trump won’t do it though. Why? Because he for some reason loves the heat from the MSM. Loves to brawl with them. He’s a strange guy. Loves confrontation sometimes just for the hell of it.

  723. Chicon says:

    753 – I think this is good insight, Phil. That’s not my preferred method, but he won.

  724. Tina says:

    Yes, ayotte is fine.

  731. Tina says:

    McConnell went on to say, “Our Democratic colleagues complaining about the removal of an FBI director whom they themselves repeatedly and sharply criticized. That removal being done by a man, Rod Rosenstein, whom they repeatedly and effusively praised.” Rosenstein is the acting Deputy Attorney General. McConnell said, “Mr. Rosenstein recommended Comey’s removal for many of the very reasons that they consistently complained about.”

    ——————————————

    ayotte snubbed trump on election eve, very publicly, at trump’s penultimate event

    it was of course a huge deal on the drive home talk radio.

    howie carr, long time trump supporter and more specifically anti-hillary radio host with one of the most popular radio shows in drive time radio in nh

    slammed her for 4 hours on election eve — as he had periodically for a couple of months. she lost by about 1000 votes

    she should not have so publicly snubbed him.

    distancing yourself from trump is one thing, a good move in new hampshire where trump’s brashness is not always well liked, but going out of your way to make trump supporters not vote for you was not smart.

  734. lisab says:

    “I know mcamnesty is bitter. I keep,reading reports that mcamnesty handed the bogus dossier to comedy.”

    i think he gave it to romney

    who believed it

  735. lisab says:

    were i advising trump

    i would tell him to pick the quietest dependable by the book fbi guy he could find. someone from the agency, who pre-dates obama, who has taken down some big cases without any fanfare.

    someone who is clearly competent and who will do his/her job without saying anything to the press ever.

  736. Tina says:

    Mcamnesty is no longer denying handinf the dossier to comedy.

    Dossier was preoared by her thifhness campaign. I am sure that it willl come out soon.

  737. lisab says:

    a politician would be the LAST person i would suggest trump pick.

    i would want someone who sees the job as the ultimate job of their career, NOT as a stepping stone to a congressional seat

    if the next fbi director decides to take a shot at trump, say by going after a trump/russia connection and publicly goes after trump

    a.) it could end the trump presidency
    b.) it would probably guarantee the fbi director a major position in the dem party for the rest of their life as the person who took down trump

    no … i would want a non-political fbi guy who took down some mafia or drug dealers or even better russian spies

  738. PresidentPaul! says:

    Of course Bunu supports the terrorists. Have Paulbots ever sided with Americans against terrrorism?

  740. NYCmike says:

    #771 – Wes,

    Does that mean you want more American troops in harms way?

    Will your kids be signing up? Will their father sign up?

  741. NYCmike says:

    “distancing yourself from trump is one thing, a good move in new hampshire where trump’s brashness is not always well liked, but going out of your way to make trump supporters not vote for you was not smart.”

    -lisab,

    Blame is not allowed to be put on the person running the race. Wes found the real culprit, Aaron Hernandez Day.

  742. NYCmike says:

    If a good FBI person could be found, who does not look to play the DC game that Robbie falls for EVERY TIME, than go with that person.

  743. NYCmike says:

    Otherwise, I would not be against Ayotte, except that she is close with McCain/Grahamnesty, which gives me some pause. May be too Dem-friendly, as opposed to non-partisan.

  744. Bitterlaw says:

    Oddly enough, NYC had no problem with Trump being too Dem-friendly with his donations.

  745. PresidentPaul! says:

    Nope, we need to bring all the troops home and downsize the military.

  746. NYCmike says:

    “Oddly enough, NYC had no problem with Trump being too Dem-friendly with his donations.”

    -Not sure how you could possibly conflate the 2 issues…….but A-Holes usually put forth the same types of……..wisdom.

  748. Tina says:

    There is nothing the drats, jebots, never trumpeters do about the comedy firing. Totalky legal and done in accordance with the constitution.

    Comedy clearly sat on matters. No excuse not to have investigated the leakers by failing to interview farkas, clapper, or the sjw yates.

  749. Tina says:

    And no excuse by comedy failing to inform congress of surveillance against trump and others. Required quarerlynand he faied to do it, per his march testimony.

  750. Tina says:

    And what I am talking about is rep stefanik questioning comedy over the

    https://youtu.be/HlXXZQgh72Y

  751. Tina says:

    Over the dni.

    Look how nervous trey looks at the questioning.

    I believe the hearing was in march. Comedy clearly lied before congress.

  752. Tina says:

    Lets get the fake news out early this am, before fake news water carrier arrives

    Lol

  753. NYCmike says:

    Tina,

    MD has declared the U.S. a “banana republic”, so we should expect the worst.

  754. Bitterlaw says:

    Nope, we need to bring all the troops home and downsize the military.

    Getting soft, Bunu? Downsize? You used to be opposed to any military.

  755. Robbie says:

    If a good FBI person could be found, who does not look to play the DC game that Robbie falls for EVERY TIME, than go with that person.

    – I see NYCMike has his dunce cap on early this morning.

  757. NYCmike says:

    EVERY TIME

  758. Bitterlaw says:

    Will NYC admit that Trump is more Dem-friendly than Ayotte? She never donated to Schumer or Hillary Clinton.

  759. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:
    May 11, 2017 at 9:40 am
    EVERY TIME

    – I know! Every time Trump does something crazy or mishandles what should be a sure thing, you’re right here to defend him.

  760. Robbie says:

    Bitterlaw says:
    May 11, 2017 at 9:45 am
    Will NYC admit that Trump is more Dem-friendly than Ayotte? She never donated to Schumer or Hillary Clinton.

    – Must defend the Trump at all costs. No matter that Republican Party getting killed. Must defend the Trump. Wimpy Republicans all deserve deadender primary challenge if go against the Trump.

  761. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    I have NOT defended Trump at all in how he went about firing Comey. It is never a good time for a person with an (R) after his name to do anything legal and within their power in the DC game.

    I have looked at your hysterical ramblings, and “worries” about how he did it and laughed, pointed out how ridiculous you are, and then laughed more.

    I am not sure what Trump did, if he “colluded” with the Russians to get them to hack the DNC so that Hillary’s emails (the TRUTH) could be seen by everybody, or anything else.

    I am sure that Trump and the Russians did NOT hack voting machines and change a Hillary victory to a Trump victory.

    Other than that, keep breathlessly linking to MSM “reports”, ignoring outlets/people you consider not worthy (until they agree with you, like Bannon this time), and telling Trump to stay off Twitter, the only reason why there is NOW a video out with a montage of the Democrats calling for Comey to resign.

    My prediction: This too shall pass.

  762. Trump says:

    Trump beat his dem harridan.

    Ayotte could not.

    Who is more dem- friendly?

  763. NYCmike says:

    “Will NYC admit that Trump is more Dem-friendly than Ayotte? She never donated to Schumer or Hillary Clinton.”

    -Sure, of cource he was more Dem-friendly when he was a private citizen. Was that ever an issue that I disagree with?

  764. Bitterlaw says:

    Robbie – Given Trump’s history, I thought NYC’s criticism of Ayotte was weak.

  765. Trump says:

    And the Jeb cocsucker is back peddling fake news.

    New day, same sh&it.

  766. NYCmike says:

    Of course, the issue is NOW, and we were speaking about the position of FBI director.

    If Ayotte is like McCain and Graham, who always seem to be looking to be friends the media and people like Schumer, Reid, Durbin, I need to reserve judgment about her.

  767. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    The criticism of Ayotte has ZERO to do with Trump.

    If you want to compare apples to apples (or since Ayotte is involved, melons to melons!), did I support Trump during the primaries?

    Or did I support Christie, then Rubio, then Cruz, people who were actual Republicans?

  768. Trump says:

    While Trump cruises to re-election.

    “Manufacturing openings, hires rise to highest levels of the recovery.”

  769. Trump says:

    In the two days since firing Comey, Trump’s approval has risen by two points in Rasmussen tracking.

    So much for the fake news peddled by the Jeb coc-sucker retard Robbie.

  770. NYCmike says:

    “– Must defend the Trump at all costs. No matter that Republican Party getting killed. Must defend the Trump. Wimpy Republicans all deserve deadender primary challenge if go against the Trump.”

    -There is so much nonsense in one sentence where does one start!?!

    1) “Must defend Trump” – should read MUST NOT TRUST MEDIA UNTIL SMOKE CLEARS AND STORIES ARE VERIFIED”

    2) “No matter that Republican Party getting killed.” – Calendar says May 2017…..talk to me in May 2018, and we will take another look.

    3) “Wimpy Republicans” – ok, got this right.

    4) “all deserve deadender primary challenge if go against the Trump.” – STUPID STATEMENT. They do deserve a primary challenge simply because the citizens of each district should have a representative who is responsive to them.

  771. NYCmike says:

    Trump says:
    May 11, 2017 at 9:58 am

    And the Jeb cocsucker is back peddling fake news.

    New day, same sh&it.

    -Not much to disagree with here.

    Bitterlaw, Waingro, EML, BF, jason, Tina, Chicon, SDC, wvally, Walt, Ca$h Cow? Do any of you disagree with this statement?

  772. Robbie says:

    The mishandling of Comey’s firing will stick for a long time. The Russia story, even though there’s nothing there, isn’t going away. Why? the press loves it and Trump feels compelled, why I don’t know, to keep talking about it. Now, the press is going to spend months yapping about how Comey was fired so Trump could end the Russia investigation.

    I never thought Mike Flynn would still be an issue, but here we are. I never thought the bogus Russia story would have legs like this, but here we are. So why would anyone think Comey will fade quickly? He’s a rogue and he’s going to want his pound of flesh. That means leaks, leaks, leaks.

    And why would we think Trump will do the smart thing and stop talking about this story? He still brings up Flynn and a story yesterday said Trump has been warned off contacting Flynn several times. He also still brings up the wiretap story, like did with John Dickerson, and that was a mess.

    If thought Trump could show some message discipline, maybe I’d feel differently. But right now, we’re seeing what happens when a president with no political experience surrounds himself with aides who have no real high quality political experience.

  773. Robbie says:

    Obviously, the best way for Trump to get back on track is to give an interview to Lester Holt.

  774. NYCmike says:

    Yes, it will linger. Democrats will continue to overplay their hand. The video of them calling for Comey’s resignation is the ONLY THING that should be spoken about, BY ALL REPUBLICANS.

    And the reason is NOT to cover-up, but to stop feeding this ridiculous media frenzy.

    How did the Russians steal this election? THEY DID NOT. Very simple. Hillary lost, Trump won, fair and square.

  775. NYCmike says:

    ” Lester Holt.”

    -95% of America just said “WHO?”.

  776. Trump says:

    Trump is on track, as-wipe.

    He is triggering you on a daily basis. Multiple times a day.

  777. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:
    May 11, 2017 at 10:17 am
    ” Lester Holt.”
    -95% of America just said “WHO?”.

    – Yeah. Giving an interview two days after Comey was fired to Lester Holt of NBC News will go unnoticed. Smart take.

  778. Trump says:

    Stick to brokered convention, retard.

    That’s your level.

  779. Robbie says:

    Trump says:
    May 11, 2017 at 10:18 am
    Trump is on track, as-wipe.
    He is triggering you on a daily basis. Multiple times a day.

    – He’s triggering his approval rating all the way down into the low 40’s after two and a half months.

  780. Trump says:

    Fake polls, retarded monkey.

  781. NYCmike says:

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/may/11/james-comey-firing-shows-democratic-media-hypocris/

    -I always liked Tammy Bruce, ESPECIALL when she agrees with me.

    Robbie to ignore in 3….2….1…

  782. Trump says:

    38% approval in fake polls on nov 8 gave 306 ev’s to trump.

    40’s translate to 400 ev’s.

  783. NYCmike says:

    should be a “Y” at the end of “ESPECIALL”

  784. Robbie says:

    Good for Tammy Bruce.

  785. Bitterlaw says:

    Bitterlaw,

    The criticism of Ayotte has ZERO to do with Trump.

    Of course. You not only gave a free pass to Trump for decades of donating to Democrats, you defended it.

  786. NYCmike says:

    “– He’s triggering his approval rating all the way down into the low 40’s after two and a half months.”

    -May 2017.

    Someone alert the guy WITHOUT the dunce cap that elections are not for another 18 months.

  787. NYCmike says:

    ” You not only gave a free pass to Trump for decades of donating to Democrats, you defended it.”

    -BS.

    I defended Trump’s donations record specifically to give proof that he was NOT a “liberal Democrat”.

    I did NOT defend Trump as being a Republican at all.

    Of course, you know that.

  788. Trump says:

    Trump is not up for election for 3+ years.

    It is Ryan’s neck on the line. He better deliver, or the average midterm loss will eat him up in 2018.

  789. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw’s definition of a free pass = Support EVERY OTHER NOMINEE until I have no choice, then support Trump against Hillary.

  790. jason says:

    en. Mike Lee (R-Utah) floated on Thursday that President Trump should nominate Merrick Garland, former President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, to be the next FBI director.”

    Interesting pick. Gets rid of Garland on the appeals court for one.

  791. jason says:

    Obviously, the best way for Trump to get back on track is to give an interview to Lester Holt.”

    As I said yesterday, from the mouth of idiots you sometimes garner truth.

    Nothing wrong with giving Lester Holt an interview.

    Win-win.

  792. jason says:

    Nah, just in your case. I take it easy on you because brainwashed people are more vulnerable.

    Sue me.

  793. jason says:

    If Trump really believes the Russia thing is going nowhere then by all means nominate Garland.

    What worries me about Garland is his hostility to the 2nd Amendment, but the FBI doesn’t have much to do with that.

  794. jason says:

    Let’s see how many Dems vote against Garland….

  795. jason says:

    However, I think Ayotte would be great.

  796. NYCmike says:

    jason finally gets to Ayotte after PRAISING Garland in 3 comments.

    He is clearly against Ayotte.

  797. NYCmike says:

    Mike Lee getting a nice comment from jason……there must be flying llamas!

  798. Robbie says:

  800. Robbie says:

    What are acceptable news sources at HHR? I need examples so I can be on the same wavelength as others here.

  801. Trump says:

    A welcome change from your coc-sucker buddy Jeb.

  802. Robbie says:

    Trump would be smart to choose someone for FBI who has either NOT had a political career or a very limited one. When the country is well acquainted with the name of the FBI Director, that means the FBI Director is probably far too powerful. We don’t need that. Robert Mueller should be the guide for a choice.

    – Because Trump still thinks he can woo the political press just as he did the tabloid press in NYC. Wrong. The tabloid press just wanted access and stories that would sell papers. The DC political press wants to destroy anything Republican. They can’t be wooed.

  804. Trump says:

    There is a difference between wooing and kicking in the nuts.

    No wonder you are a serial loser.

  805. Bitterlaw says:

    Robbie- Personally, I think most news outlets are acceptable sources for news. However, the trick is trying to take out the spin.

    For example, 4+4=8. Fact. MSNBC would probably report it this way:

    Despite massive cuts in Federal education spending and a continuing hostility by President Trump towards math, 4+4 remains 8. For now.

  806. Trump says:

    Keep your focus on fake news.

    Meanwhile, cruising to reelection.

    “Steel industry, seeing a new dawn, is cheering for President Trump”

  807. NYCmike says:

    “Meanwhile, cruising to reelection.”

    -There is Robbie, than there is this side of the coin.

  808. Trump says:

    You are too scared of shadows.

  809. Bitterlaw says:

    I only fear spiders.

  810. NYCmike says:

    I don’t like water bugs. And bears. And owls. And…

  811. jason says:

    jason finally gets to Ayotte after PRAISING Garland in 3 comments.”

    Huh, moron, I didn’t PRAISE Garland.

    I mentioned Mike Lee having suggested him, and I said “interesting” pick because it freed up a seat on the appeals court so Trump could appoint a conservative.

    I also said Garland worried me because he was very anti 2nd Amendment.

    So why don’t you run along now and GFY.

  812. jason says:

    – Yeah, because Holt is really going to be interested in letting Trump get his message out. Please.”

    Trump will get his message out, he always does in interviews. One of the reasons he won the election.

    Holt is a left wing media hack of the type you are so fond of.

    Are you admitting the MSM is biased? Eureka!!

  813. Robbie says:

    It really has been something watch Jason go from a harsh Trump critic in 2016 who claimed on election night he was switching party affiliation to an ardent Trump defender/protector at HHR.

  814. NYCmike says:

    jason obviously does not understand when people are kidding around…..Mom, we got another one! a BIG ONE!

  815. NYCmike says:

    “It really has been something watch Jason go”

    -Robbie,

    It will pain me to say this, but neither you nor jason have changed.

    He is still a loudmouth crank who gives Trump his due when he deserves it, you are still a MSM shill who can’t form an opinion without reading the NY TIMES first.

  816. Bitterlaw says:

    After the election, Jason said that he would support Trump where he agreed with him and oppose him where he disagreed. I think that he has acted that way.

  817. Robbie says:

    After the election, Jason said that he would support Trump where he agreed with him and oppose him where he disagreed. I think that he has acted that way.

    – I said the same. I just have found more reasons to disagree I suppose. Clearly, I’m far more critical of Trump’s personal antics than others.

    And I repeat, these interviews and tweets don’t help Trump one bit.

  820. NYCmike says:

    How many followers does Trump have on Twitter?

    How many of them will re-tweet that montage?

    Yup, that’s a bad thing……if you already swallowed the MSM line.

  821. NYCmike says:

    From that link:

    “The pathetic Democrats were caught so utterly off-guard, and were so completely bought-into their spittle-flicking Comey hate, that their 180 from calling for Comey’s head to calling for his restoration will give them mental whiplash. They’ll be in figurative neck braces just like the one their hero Ted Kennedy wore after he left Mary Jo in the pond.”

  822. Walt says:

    Here is a poll.

    I saw a Dem. (was it U.S. Senator from VA?) on TV pontificating about repeal of ObamaCare.

    He said–with a straight face–how it was abominable for one party to unilaterally push through such an important bill without any votes from the other side.

  825. Cash Cow TM says:

    Exactly what are the specifics of “The Russians hacked the U.S. election and interfered with it.”?

    – No. You need to stop thinking about me so much.

  828. Robbie says:

    The insane clown posse at Info Wars claim Sean Spicer will be fired by the end of next week and Kimberly Guilfoyle may be considered as a replacement.

    Now, we already know that Steve Bannon leaks information to Mike Cernovich so I guess it’s not a surprise Bannon may be leaking to Alex Jones. Given the language in the story about Spicer, saying Trump listened to his moderate advisors for six weeks, it’s not hard to believe Bannon is at it again.

    Personally, I don’t care if Spicer stays or goes.

  829. Robbie says:

    Imagine that. In Trump’s interview with Lester Holt, he gave a different explanation why he fired Comey than the one the White House put out on Tuesday night.

    Great message discipline.

    Carrie Dann?
    @CarrieNBCNews

    Carrie Dann
    WH statement, May 9: “President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein & AG Jeff Sessions.”

    Trump tells Holt: “Regardless of [Deputy AG’s] recommendation, I was going to fire Comey.”

  830. Trump says:

    The as$wipe claims he doesn’t care about Spicer, yet goes through every online gossip that he can find.

    Peak trump derangement syndrome on display.

  833. Trump says:

    So what happened to the fake news, which gave orgasms to the rattled Jeb cocsucker Robbie, that Comey wanted more resources for Russia investigation?

    This happened…

    McCabe – I strongly believe the Russia investigation is adequately resourced.

    McCabe went on to say a request for funding for an individual investigation would be highly irregular.

    Not that this will stop the rated monkey Robbie from continued Implosion.

    Wait a minute, did I just get called a deadender by Wobbie?

    Rack those points up.

  839. Robbie says:

    No, I am not calling Jason a deadender.

  840. Trump says:

    Ed Markey’s spokeswoman:

    ” this morning Senator Markey erroneously reported that a gran jury has been empaneled in New York related to the wider inquiry of possible Trump campaign and administration ties to Russia. Senator Markey does not have direct intelligence that is the case, and the information he was provided during a briefing is not substantiated.”

    The retard Robbie now talking to Ed Markey?

    I also love the phrase “administration ties to Russia”. I believe the administration has an embassy in Moscow.

  841. Robbie says:

    Ed Markey got his information from the lunatic Louise Mensch. Essentially, Markey quoting her is like a Republican quoting Alex Jones.

  842. jason says:

    It really has been something watch Jason go from a harsh Trump critic in 2016 who claimed on election night he was switching party affiliation to an ardent Trump defender/protector at HHR.”

    Note to wobbie, I haven’t changed.

    Even during the campaign, no matter what I thought of Trump, I always pointed out when the MSM went over the line. For example the bimbo eruption and the “sexual predator” BS.

    Trump won despite my opposition. Now instead of playing the MSM game and still pining for my candidate like you have chosen to do, I chose to support him where I can and hope he does great things for the country.

    You can join into the MSM’s war on Trump if you think it will bring back Jeb Bush. I have moved on. I have been plenty critical of Trump on various issues such as trade. I repeatedly say he is not a Republican or a conservative.

    As far as party affiliation, I am now an Independent. I will no longer vote in R primaries and will support the candidate I prefer in the GE regardless of party.

  843. Robbie says:

    Is he a RINO now?

    Brit Hume?
    @brithume

    Whatever you think of the Comey ouster, it’s now clear the White House utterly botched the explanations/aftermath, fueling the firestorm.

    Robbie says:
    May 11, 2017 at 1:27 pm

    No, I am not calling Jason a deadender.”

    Dammit, I read “defender” as deadender.

    There go the points….

  845. Robbie says:

    Jason is obsessed with Jeb Bush. He brings him up almost every day now even though the guy dropped out of the race 15 months ago.

    As for the claim I’m doing the MSM’s bidding, can’t you come up with a better fantasy?

    My views are my own. And here’s another view to piss you off. I think the evidence is pretty clear the presidency has overwhelmed Trump and he is not dealing with it well at all. I think a fair case can be made he’s mentally unwell right now due to immense stress.

  846. Bitterlaw says:

    Jason – By not voting in the GOP primaries, you just made it easier for the deadenders to obtain a nomination.

  847. jason says:

    Poor Wobbie, he loves the MSM drivel.

    Remember when the travel ban was “botched” because liberal judges said it was? When the point was the President was legally entitled to issue the ban?

    Now the firing is “botched”? Trump has the legal right to fire Comey for any reason he wants. So how can it be “botched”?

  848. Cash Cow TM says:

    Yep, I voted for Kasich. The people who vote in the GOP primary in PA preferred a corporate capitalist Democrat.

    They own the party now. That is democracy.

  850. NYCmike says:

    “Jason – By not voting in the GOP primaries, you just made it easier for the deadenders to obtain a nomination.”

  851. Robbie says:

    I said the PR rollout of the first travel ban was botched and I was right. Even Trump admitted that was the case.

  852. NYCmike says:

    “The people who vote in the GOP primary in PA preferred a corporate capitalist Democrat.”

    -Or, they recognized that “normal political reality” had been turned on its head, and they knew that they needed an unorthodox street fighter to do what the others could not do.

  853. NYCmike says:

    “botched” was the word.

    Of course, the 2nd one is working beautifully…….what was that, come again? Still not in effect…..how could that be…..Bannon didn’t write it!

  854. Robbie says:

    I also said the PR rollout of the Comey firing was botched and we’re seeing that play out in real time.

    As I wrote in comment 450, firing Comey was the correct decision.

  855. NYCmike says:

    “So how can it be “botched”?”

    Easy.

    Trump did not notify the following people first, and allow them to tell everyone of importance:

    NY Times opinion writers
    WAPO opinion writers
    CNN
    MSNBC
    Lester Holt
    John Dickerson
    Chuck Schumer
    etc
    etc

    – I know you want to confuse the issues to help your case, but issue was never that liberal judges stopped the order. My objection was the White House was totally unprepared to defend and explain the order to the public.

    – Totally stupid, but par for the course. You have continually conflated the issue in an effort to make your view seem ok when even Trump doesn’t agree.

  858. Walt says:

    WV CD 3

    Congressman Evan Jenkins (R) has announced he will run for U.S. Senate and challenge Mannchin.

    This will leave an open seat in WV CD3 in 2018.

    Delegate Rupie Phillips–long time D member of the WV House of Delegates who switched to be an Indy after the last election–has announced he is switching party affiliation again and becoming an R.

    Rumor has it that current WV GOP chair Conrad Lucas (R–Cabell Co.?) [who has run in the CD3 R primary before and lost] and former WV delegate Rick Snuffer (R–Mercer Co.) [who ran for CD3 before and lost to Rahall] and current WV delegate Marty Gearhart (R–Mercer Co.) will also be getting in this race.

    Have not heard who might be running on the D side.
    **************************************************
    SIDENOTE: After the 2020 census, WV will be losing one of the 3 CDs and lines will have to be redrawn to reflect that, and that means either McKinley (CD1), Mooney (CD2) or whoever wins the 2018 election in CD3 in 2018 will be odd man out.

    My guess is that they will split WV into a northern and a southern CD.

  859. Robbie says:

    Walt

    A recently retired general may be the Democrat choice in WV3.

    So explain to me how different is “your own view” from everything you can read in every left wing media outlet?

    There is no difference. It’s EXACTLY the same narrative.

    You go to any left wing site in the AM and you can bet that whatever they post you will be repeating here within an hour. Like clockwork.

    You don’t have any “own” views. You just parrot whatever you read. And it doesn’t piss me off, I think its sad and pathetic.

  861. jason says:

    Of course, the 2nd one is working beautifully……”

    Right, so it has nothing to do with being “botched” or not. The liberals don’t like it, that is the problem.

    Same with Comey. There was no “acceptable” way to fire him. The reaction would always be the same, botched or not.

    That is what the MSM sycophant doesn’t understand. Trump is never going to be acceptable to the MSM. Never. Nunca.

    It has nothing to do with optics.

  862. Robbie says:

    Here’s how you run a credible press operation when you’re about to make a major move.

    1. Make sure everyone is telling the same story.
    2. Line up credible surrogates who are ready to go on TV to reinforce the decision.
    3. Don’t allow trump to go on TV, freelance, and blow up the strategy the PR shop developed.

  863. NYCmike says:

    ” My objection was the White House was totally unprepared to defend and explain the order to the public.”

    -Which is utter and complete horsesh*t.

    They were prepared to do that in the second instance, yet the order has still NOT BEEN IMPLEMENTED.

    How do you explain that, other than by ignoring that it has NOTHING to do with Trump, and everything to do with the left and the media being one and the same?

    Oh FFS.

    I’M TALKING ABOUT THE FIRST TRAVEL BAN.

    THE ROLLOUT WAS BOTCHED.

    Even Trump has said so.

    Deal with it.

    Whining about the media doesn’t change that.

    880. “I think the evidence is pretty clear the presidency has overwhelmed Trump and he is not dealing with it well at all. I think a fair case can be made he’s mentally unwell right now due to immense stress.”

    This is a totally off the wall statement. Trump is an executive of a billion dollar+ company. He knows how to handle stress. You seem to be the one getting traumatized by it all.

    Trump likes ruffling the pigeons. Trump is doing the very same thing that got him elected. He is attacking his opponents and throwing them off balance. He also is keeping the loyalty of his base, which is still fully supportive of him.

    As you pointed out, Jason was critical of Trump prior to his election. So was I. Yet were both here defending him. That should tell you something. I appreciate the fact he is not afraid to take on the far leftist establishment, which thought Obama was on the way to establishing their socialist paradise. Its one reason they are flying into a tizzy. They find something new each day to be outraged by.

    No, I am not running a B.S. shop.

    But, I am a breathing human being, who understands that there is NOTHING Trump will do that will be deemed good in the press, so my opinions reflect that reality.

    Hopefully, in a short time, you will understand the dynamics at play, and adjust your opinions.

  873. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Trump has 29.1 million followers on twitter, this is in addition to all those who check it from time to time. He can communicate directly with his supporters. This has to greatly irritate the liberal press, which has lost its role of filtering the news. Probably why leftists want Trump to stop using his twitter.

  874. NYCmike says:

    Let’s see, you have SDC, jason, Chicon, “Trump”, Tina, Wes, myself, even bunu, understanding what the MSM is trying to do.

  875. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    903. The amount of illegal immigration into the U.S. has plummeted, so the underlying policy has been successful. Trump may have lost a battle, but he is winning the war.

  876. Robbie says:

    SDC

    I think Trump’s presidency presents many opportunities for conservative policy and judges. And on those issues, I have been very positive. That’s especially true about his cabinet choices, Gorsuch, and taxes.

    As a business man, it was Trump, his children, and a few others. When he decided an issue, it was acted upon. He got his way. He never had to deal with a board of directors.

    The US government isn’t run the same way as his business and he’s not handling that well. Story after story suggests Trump has been very frustrated by this. And right now, he’s flailing.

    I think the job is stressing him out and I think it is affecting his performance. I think he’s unwell. Just because he looked like a good executive on the Apprentice doesn’t mean a hill of beans in the White House.

    That’s my view.

    – Oh no. Posters in a comment section don’t agree with me. Whatever will I do?

    Maybe I’ll follow your lead and continue to believe what I believe since no one here supports your view about supporting deadenders in primaries yet you continue to do so.

  878. Trump says:

    You think a lot of nonsense, retard.

  879. Trump says:

    Those are called delusions in real world.

    Jeb, brokered convention, …the list is endless.

  882. Robbie says:

    Trump’s presidency is in legitimatize crisis mode, but let’s all watch Hannity and think happy thoughts.

  883. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    911. Your entitled to you view, will respect that. But I think as an executive Trump is following the advice of one of Utah’s most colorful politicians:

    “Do It Honestly, Do It the Best You Know How, And ‘Let Em Holler.’” J. Bracken Lee

    You have to step on toes to change things. When Margaret Thatcher was first elected, she was blasted the same way Trump is now. If Trump’s policies work, he is good for seven more years. Have to note that illegal immigration is way down, there is a huge budget surplus in April, and unemployment is down. These are what matters. Comey will be forgotten about in a couple of months.

  884. NYCmike says:

    “I think the job is stressing him out and I think it is affecting his performance. I think he’s unwell.”

    -As a person who has seen Trump in the public eye since the early 80’s, I do NOT see anything different.

    He was always a braggart, uncouth, egotistical, and arrogant, while also being a gracious host, a knowledgeable and inquisitive facilitator, and a person who inspires loyalty in many people.

  885. Trump says:

    No, trump presidency is not in crisis.

    Just because a deranged retard like you says so does make it true.

  886. NYCmike says:

  892. Cash Cow TM says:

    Plus, dandelions cure cancer! (not sure how…)

  893. Cash Cow TM says:

    Walt,

    Retired Gen. Tackett has been heavily involved in D politics for a while.

    Big supporter of Joe Manchin, hosting fundraisers and a key person for Natalie Tennant (ex-WV SOS) in her campaign(s) endorsing various Ds who are running for this and that…

    The reason they have to flare methane in North Dakota is attempts to build natural gas infrastructure, such as pipelines, to capture the flared gas have been blocked by environmentalists. The oil industry would love to capture and sell the flared gas. Environmentalists want to close the oil industry down in North Dakota, so oppose flaring or the capture of the flared gas.

    Heitkamp was the deciding vote against her state’s major industry, as a Republican Senator mysteriously changed his vote.
    ________________

    “WASHINGTON — Republicans suffered a surprise defeat today in their quest to repeal Obama-era methane rules thank to votes from three members of their caucus in favor of keeping the restrictions on oil and gas drilling emissions on federal land.

    Two months before leaving office, President Obama finalized a rule compelling energy companies to capture the methane they would otherwise burn off through on-site flaring. In addition to environmental concerns, proponents said the practice wasted energy resources that belonged to taxpayers.

    The vote to repeal that rule was 49-51, with Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) voting to keep the rule. McCain reportedly was siding with GOP leaders Tuesday. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) had also reportedly planned to vote in favor of repeal before changing her vote.”

    The report that Deputy Attorney General Rosentein had threatened to quit was false:

    “WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) – Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said he’s not quitting, nor did he threaten to quit over his role in the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
    When asked by Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Michelle Macaluso about reports that claim otherwise, he stated “no, I’m not quitting.”
    Macaluso: Did you threaten to quit?
    Rosenstein: No.”

  904. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    939. Not according to Ruby. From The Hill several hours ago.

    “Giuliani: ‘I’m not gonna be FBI director’

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said he is visiting the White House on Thursday but denied reports he’s on the shortlist to replace ousted FBI Director James Comey.

    “I’m not a candidate for FBI director,” he said in a New York Magazine story published Wednesday. “I am not. The president’s not gonna ask me, and I’m not gonna be FBI director.”

  913. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    San Diego Citizen – Another one of the ignorant Conservative toads. You don’t even have basic reading comprehension skills. Instead of flaring, companies are now obliged to capture and sell the methane which means more money AND a better environment. The only reason to flare valuable methane gas is because the company in question is desperate and wants to get at the higher-margin oil at all costs.

    “Based on estimates, the rule will prevent the waste of 65 billion cubic feet of natural gas a year and save taxpayers $330 million annually. The repeal of the rule would have allowed for the unregulated release of a gas that traps 86 times more heat than carbon dioxide over a 20-year period. Because taxpayers collect royalties from energy produced on public lands, repealing the rule also could have reduced direct payments to taxpayers by $800 million over the next decade, according to the Western Values Project.”

    We should forcibly sterilize ignorant pieces of sh*t like you in the interests of evolution SanDiegoRetard.

  914. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    Remember when this board didn’t have a flagrant racist on board named after the current POS Manchurian candidate? “Trump” is probably the even more flagrantly racist handle of either Tina or the erstwhile missing but not forgotten MNW.

    Idiot rednecks think they determine what conservatism is. Maybe go f*cking read a book every once in a while and you won’t sound so stupid or be easily manipulated by Russians.

  931. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    955. Actually flaring has been greatly reduced in North Dakota, and the state is requiring it to be phased out. The problem is the federal government is delaying the permits for the necessary pipelines to move the gas.

    “Often, when companies are developing the gas-capture infrastructure, obtaining the Rights of Way (ROW) to lay new pipelines across multiple property owners’ land takes time and flaring must occur in the interim. When federal or tribal lands are involved, the delays can be even greater, as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Bureau of Indian Affairs are often slow to process ROWs. Yet instead of processing ROWs in a timely manner to reduce flaring, BLM is embarking on a time-consuming regulatory process that will take two years or more. Senators Barrasso, Hoeven, and Enzi have introduced the Natural Gas Gathering Enhancement Act (S. 411) to rectify the bureaucratic foot dragging that is resulting in more flaring and venting than should otherwise occur.”

    The idiot poster was correct on one point, those doing the drilling WANT to recovery flare gas and sell it. North Dakota WANTS them to do it, but the Feds are lost in bureaucracy and preventing it.

  932. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    968. Aw, you caught me. I was just talking to Vladimir Putin this morning and he was telling me I was not a very good Russian troll. I was the guy who was suppose to fix the vote in Nevada last November, but got preoccupied at the roulette table. Shucks.

    They are massive counterpunches.

  1020. Tina says:

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
    Again, the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election.

    True, bit the drats, never trumpeters, and jebots say otherwise. Time to make thhe arrests of the leakers.

  1028. NYCmike says:

    “I find politics on FB super annoying and condescending.”

    -wv,

    I am not on Facebook, for a reason. I would not want to discuss these issues there, yet one side is able to post their cr*p, while a fact-filled link about Stalin will get censored.

  1029. NYCmike says:

    “Time to subpoena the tapes.”

    -Tina,

    Trump mentioned “tapes”, and so did MD on Twitter.

    Sh*t is going down!

  1030. NYCmike says:

    MD is also saying that since Republicans may cancel press conferences, that makes them fascists.

    Not sure how that makes them fascists, but I am also not sure why the Trump Admin would do that.

  1031. Chicon says:

    1070 – it is probably the format that he wants to get away from. He wants more control of the message, imo, which for him is a good play. The guy is constantly in front of a camera, and communicates effectively using a certain pilot’s favorite social media platform. Note to Robbie – effectively here means he gets out the message he wants out, not the effectiveness of the content.

  1032. Chicon says:

    On the topic of the Comey thing….

    Fine idea. Horse bleep rollout. Heard Newt make a good analogy – he’s like a quarterback who gets ahead of his linemen.

  1033. Chicon says:

    MD referring to Trump as a fascist is ironic, given his roll as chief HHR brown shirt throughout 2016.

  1034. Bitterlaw says:

    I think that MD was so shocked to be so wrong that he now deals with it by believing that he is resisting a corrupt system and opposing a tyrant. It is easier than just admitting that he blew it (like almost all of us did).

  1035. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    It must be something like that. Between him and Author, Author may be the less emotional one, which is downright insane.

  1036. Chicon says:

    Very possible, Bitter. Btw, I was wrong about Trump throughout the process – didn’t think he’d really run, get nominated, or elected.

  1037. NYCmike says:

    Chicon,

    He was “relentless”, until he was…..no…..more…..Maxwell must be laughing his arse off at how meekly MD left.

  1038. Bitterlaw says:

    If we could get 2 more SCOTUS Justices, I could live with Trump stepping down or not running in 2020. If the GOP suffers badly enough in 2018, I think that Trump will go back to his Democratic roots and veer left.

  1039. wvally says:

    Do you really think he’ll run again? This seem tortuous.

    1050 – a classic example of projection.
    Robbie, what do you think about the Facebook numbers regarding the Comey firing, as reported by your peeps at Axios?

    – Projection? Really? That’s laughable. Twitter is ruining Trump’s presidency. He thinks it’s the magic pixie dust that pierces the media filter, but his tweets have only hurt him. But day after, he uses it to put out “off topic” messages that hurt his cause and blow up any sense of message discipline his communications department tries to create.

    Imagine what his approval rating would be if he had never accused the IC of using Nazi tactics in January. Imagine what his approval would be if he never tweeted about wiretapping in March. Heck, imagine what his approval rating would be if there was no Twitter for him to “pop off” at all.

    And before anyone says Twitter made Trump president, I disagree. I believe Twitter is the reason the race was so close. Given the strong desire for change, Trump probably should have won easily. Lots of people stayed away from Trump though because of what they saw from him on Twitter. Poll after poll shows strong majorities (more than 60%) hate his Twitter habit.

    As for Facebook, its just an echo chamber. Like minded people talk to like minded people. Thankfully, I’m not on Facebook, but the issue has never been about firing Comey. I supported it said so in post 450 right after Trump fired him. The issue is lack of message discipline and a seeming indifference to the consequences of it.

  1041. Bitterlaw says:

    WV – I don’t know. Trump might say, “F it. I proved that I could win. I’m off to enjoy being a billionaire.” Trump does what he wants.

    – Oh. So the message Trump wanted out in the days before his inauguration was the IC used Nazi like tactics?

    So the message he wanted out just before the House Republicans unveiled their Obamacare repeal plan was that Obama was sick and sad and wiretapped him?

    So the message he wanted out in the wake of Comey’s firing was to threaten/intimidate him if he or his allies leak? By the way, there are no tapes.

    It’s one thing to like Trump and want him to succeed. I certainly want to see Trump succeed on taxes and the federal courts, but to ignore how disastrous his behavior on Twitter has been is ridiculous.

    Everything else is fake.

    May Chris Wallace should cancel his show and get on Twitter.

  1050. Trump says:

    Chris Wallace should follow Twitter to get trump’s point of view.

This exactly what you derisively said about a poster who supports Trump. Projection.

  1061. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    Your UNCHANGING POV about the MSM is the issue.

    I do not discount what they do, but I also don’t believe their first reports, and I don’t regurgitate the initial tweets from Costa, Hume, Maggie, etc.

    Give each story a day or two, and then see what is going on.

  1062. NYCmike says:

    Cool….I think Robbie must have realized how reactionary he was being….and has decided to allow for the facts to come out BEFORE opining……

  1063. Robbie says:

    Poor NYCMike. When someone has an opinion with which he doesn’t agree, he trots out the FoxNews approved trope about the MSM.

  1064. NYCmike says:

    “FoxNews approved trope about the MSM.”

    -Heh.

    Totally divorced from reality.

    There was a clip earlier that someone linked to, where even mumbling Tom Brokaw was saying to Andrea Mitchell to “take a step back”.

    Again, TOM BROKAW.

    Not Hannity, not Levin, Brokaw.

    Robbie,

    You are odd.

    Trump could resign tomorrow in disgrace, and Pence would become President. I would be fine with that domestically (never quite sure about how a President will handle foreign affairs, once in office).

    Your thinking that HHR has any sort of “Trump brigades” is foolish, at best.

  1069. NYCmike says:

    Why would Chris Stirewalt get fired from doing his job?

    Do you work for Fox News, and that is why you breathlessly link to all other sources?

    NO, you don’t. So there is no comparison with Stirewalt and you.

  1070. Robbie says:

    Don’t GOP officials know the consensus is Trump’s tweets are fine and an awesome way to communicate with his supporters?

    Yesterday, Wobbie said he comes up with his own opinions.

    The odds of that are about 10 million to one, but I do buy lottery tickets.

  1077. Trump says:

    Hey Jeb cocsucker Robbie

    What is the point of showing some random tweet from whoever this Phil mat tingly is? Quoting some made up text from an unnamed source?

    Why would anyone care?

    What does it prove?

  1078. Trump says:

    If a GOP official is frustrated, that is a good thing.

  1079. Trump says:

    Not that we know who the frustrated GOP official is. Phil mattingly?

  1080. Robbie says:

    Twitter is ruining Trump’s presidency because it gives a man with little or no impulse control an opportunity to show he has little or no impulse control. Warning or even threatening Comey on Twitter was insane.

    If Obama had done stuff like this on Twitter, those supporting Trump’s self destructive habits would be in an uproar about Obama.

  1081. Trump says:

    Trump is really hurting your mental balance.

    – Newsflash. Trump lies as well, or was his claim that Ted Cruz’s dad helped kill JFK the truth?

    On Tuesday and Wednesday, he fired Comey based on the Rosenstein memo.

    On Thursday, he said he planed to fire Comey for a long while.

    Which was the truth and which was not the truth?

    Trump managed to screw up firing an unpopular FBI Director. That’s talent.

  1087. Trump says:

    Fu ck off as- hole

    Both can be true.

    Not that a retard like you would get it.

  1088. Trump says:

    Trump planned to fire Comey for a long time, and he waited for rosenstein report.

    Where is the disconnect, retard?

  1089. Chicon says:

    1123 – blaming Twitter for Trump’s troubles (if they are indeed troubles) is like blaming the gun for the murder.

  1090. Robbie says:

    It’s really been something to watch Jason go from Trump critic to Trump spear catcher. He and NYCMike are now two peas in a pod.

    I would have thought he’d strike a middle balance. He claims he has, but I’ve not seen one instance where he’s been critical of Trump.

    He even defended Trump’s baseless and Breitbart inspired claim Obama wiretapped him.

  1091. Trump says:

    Everyone wanted to fire Comey for a long time.

    Most of them publicly.

    Trump just followed the established protocol.

  1092. Trump says:

    The only trouble I see is that the retard monkey Robbie is unhinged, along with the lame media.

    I feel guilty of having so much fun. NOT.

    If he didn’t use Twitter or his staff was running his Twitter account, the vast majority of his problems would not exist.

  1094. Trump says:

    What baseless claim, as&wipe?

    That the Obama administration “wire tapped” Trump is already proven.

  1095. Trump says:

    Again as wipe, what problems?

  1096. Tina says:

    get off twitter

    Lol

  1097. Trump says:

    I think the retard is hurting because he did not get his scoop of ice cream.

  1098. Chicon says:

    Trump the poster, my own personal belief is Trump wanted Comey to tell the public if there is any evidence of collusion with the Rooskies. I bet Comey said he wouldn’t until the investigation was over, who knows when.

    Tina says:

    – If he did, he could still communicate with you through the microwave. Oh wait. Judge Napolitano said they’re using microwaves to listen in on us.

  1100. Trump says:

    It is a wonder Robbie the retard can type, what with his mouth firmly stuck to Jeb’s coc$.

    Miracle.

  1101. Robbie says:

    So Trump complained that Obama may have wiretapped him, but now Trump suggests he may have recorded his conversations with guests in the White House without their knowledge.

    Why is one bad and the other ok?

  1102. Chicon says:

    1136 – if he didn’t use Twitter the MSM would be freer to paint water narrative they want. In my book, that is a good thing. It is the modern-day version of Reagan speaking directly to the public for his progam, which wouldn’t have passed a dem Congress otherwise. Again, bark all you want about the content of the tweets, but every president going forward will use Twitter to shape the message.

  1103. Chicon says:

    1145 – should say whatever rather than water.

  1104. NYCmike says:

    “He and NYCMike are now two peas in a pod.”

    Let me correct your statement:

    He and NYCMike, and every unemotional, sane type who realizes that the media is trying to destroy Trump, and that any story needs to be looked at over the course of several days/weeks to ascertain where the truth is, are now two peas in a pod.

    Also, please don’t compare to any situation with Obama, because the media is NOT an honest broker. If Trump starts running guns to Mexican cartels, I am pretty sure any support here would INSTANTLY dry up.

  1105. Trump says:

    The retard is concerned that news is no longer managed and controlled by tom brokenjaw and Dan rather stupid.

  1106. Tina says:

    Maybe kac can take it away.

    Lol

  1107. NYCmike says:

    “Why is one bad and the other ok?”

    -Who said that it is ok to record conversations in the White House?

    FIRST, I would ask “Is it legal?”. If they tell me “Yes, it is legal.”, then I would say “This is ok.”.

    You see how that little delay with the question was thrown in there, Robbie? Gives you a chance to breathe first……

    Obama Recording Oval Office Conversations, Presidential Taping Continues
    Posted on January 2, 2013 by Jim
    Like Nixon, LBJ, and Kennedy before him, President Obama has been recording Oval Office conversations. In my judgment, this is a good practice and a credit to the President.

    https://selfishcitizenship.com/2013/01/02/obama-recording-oval-office-conversations-presidential-taping-continues/

  1109. Tina says:

    Conversations have always been recorded in the wh.

    Remeber, the nixon tapes.

    Duh.

  1110. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Trump’s twitter account just rose from 29.1 followers, to 29.2 followers, so is growing.

    The New York Times used to claim they set the agenda for the country in their news room, now they are becoming a sideshow.

    What Trump has effectively done is open a line of communication directly to his followers. No wonder the left demands he end his use of twitter.

  1111. Trump says:

    Why is this news? Conversations in the Oval Office are always recorded.

  1112. Tina says:

    The wh oress is responding to trumps tweets.

    The wh is dictating the game (narrative).

    This is winning.

  1113. Tina says:

    Is fake news trying tomsay that the use of tapes is illegal?

  1114. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1152. Actually, after the Nixon tapes a lot of presidents ended the practice of tape recording their office conversation.

    Could see them still recording their telephone messages.

  1115. Trump says:

    Robbie the retard wants trump to be like his butt buddy Jeb, an inarticulate mute.

  1116. Trump says:

    Or worse still, the dumb inarticulate mute George w.

    Except it does help put forth another side to the MSM’s narrative.

    Your position that it should not be challenged is suicidal.

    Twitter has worked well for Trump, whether you and the MSM (yeah, same thing) like it or not.

  1124. jason says:

    Twitter killed Jeb Bush, right?

    Actually, it probably did, but that was Jeb’s fault, not Trump’s. Maybe if he has spent $40 million running ads against Trump instead of against Rubio, it might have helped Rubio. There was no help for Jeb.

    If Trump gave up Twitter, it would be complete capitulation to fake news.

    I guess that is what Wobbie wants.

  1125. Robbie says:

    You can’t cry like a baby with a dirty diaper about Obama supposedly illegally recording Trump and then say it’s perfectly fine that Trump may have done the same to Comey.

    The amount of twisting and contorting Trump pumpers are doing is really something.

  1126. jason says:

    “Controlled by tom brokenjaw and Dan rather stupid.”

    Hey Tina, watch out, Soccer Moron is trying to eat your lunch.

    LOL, what a lying fraud, the goalposts move again.

    I thought the problem was that Trump said he was recorded.

    Now the problem is that maybe he did the same to Comey.

    – Nope. Trump’s twitter feed has only been a hindrance since January. He’s not going over the heads of the press. He’s playing right into the hands of the press.

    His unsubstantiated claims and near-rants have allowed the press to focus on that rather than the topics the white House wants. Namely tax reform and Obamacare Repeal.

    Any day wasted on Twitter rants is a day Trump’s not making the case for taxes, judges, and Obamacare repeal.

    Had Trump spent every day of his presidency playing golf rather than tweeting, his approval rating would be 50%.

    LOL, what a lying fraud, the goalposts move again.
    I thought the problem was that Trump said he was recorded.
    Now the problem is that maybe he did the same to Comey.
    No wonder Wobbie is considered a clown.

    – I’m pointing out the hypocrisy about recording. Those up in arms Obama supposedly did it to Trump are the ones cheering Trump doing it to Comey. (By the way, Obama didn’t record Trump and Trump didn’t record Comey.)

    I’m not moving any goalposts. Trump is just freebasing.

    You really are a brainwashed idiot.

    The MSM has no interest in covering any of that if they can attack Trump on garbage like Russia.

    And Twitter is the only weapon Trump has to counter.

    Except that was never the problem, was it?

    The problem was that supposedly there was no surveillance on Trump.

    You are the one contorting yourself into a pretzel trying to carry the MSM’s water.

    – On the one hand, you claim Trump is setting the agenda with his Twitter feed.

    On the other, you say it’s worthless for him to talk about his agenda because the press doesn’t cover it.

  1139. Trump says:

    How is Obamacare repeal trump’s issue, except signing a bill that congress sends to his desk?

    The chinless wonder has the ball.

    Same with judges. Already has the long term sc judge installed.

    Tax reform? Isn’t that the all-hat-no-cattle Ryan’s job? Where is he? Slinking towards losing his majority?

    The retard is just hurt that trump is president and Jeb is not.

  1140. Chicon says:

    Zzzz… considering I didn’t even vote for him and spent a year here making the case he was not fit for office good luck making me into a Trumpbot.

    But he won. What I thought before he took office no longer matters. What matters is what he does now, and contrary to you, I am willing to give him a chance to prove me wrong.

    And what I see here is a deliberate and orchestrated attempt by the sore losers to delegitimize his Presidency. I have no interest of being part of that.

    And I also see that one of the few weapons Trump has to present another side is by Twitter and interviews and rallies.

    He would be nuts to give up on any of them.

  1143. NYCmike says:

    I have friends who were Obama supporters, voted for him twice, who could care less about Trump on Twitter for one reason: their health premiums keep going up.

    The only people bothered by Trump on Twitter is the MSM, because he goes over their heads.

    Robbie is unable to see that, because he refuses to step away from the minute-by-minute reporting from DC and NYC.

  1144. Trump says:

    Cruising to reelection, retard.

    Economy humming, jobs humming.

    Nobody cares about Comey. Probably not even his mother. Except retards like you and the butt hurt media.

    -Did you want me to support the Democrat?

    Since I did not vote in the primary, I had no control over it, which is why I deferred to the citizens of those respective states to make the best decision.

    Once that is done, I supported the Republican. I would hope you would do the same.

  1148. jason says:

    – Winning all the way to 40% approval.”

    So what? He only got 45% of the vote. He has been subjected to relentless attacks from the MSM and useful idiots like you from day 1.

    If not for twitter he would probably be under 30%.

  1149. NYCmike says:

    “He’s not even Nixon.”

    -Correct.

    So far, he has avoided creating any huge bureaucracy’s like we have at the EPA and with Title IX legislation, and he has not done anything illegal.

  1150. Trump says:

    Fake news and fake polls.

    That is Robbie the retard’s diet.

    – Anecdotal evidence is hardly compelling. You may know two people who don’t mind his Twitter habits. The polls show 60% or more don’t like his Twitter habits.

  1153. Trump says:

    Fake polls, retard.

  1154. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    There is simply no discussion about politics anymore, for simple reasons: EVERYTHING is more expensive that is affected by government. I have pointed it out to these people for 8 years straight, more and more they see others (gov’t workers) getting more and more stuff, while their budgets get tighter and tighter. Their health insurance being the largest driver of that.

    – I was willing to give him a chance, but, starting with the wiretap tweets, he’s shown to me he’s no different as president than he was as a candidate.

    I was really heartened by his cabinet picks and Neil Gorsuch, but they seem like they were a mirage. He’s as erratic as he was on the campaign trail.

    Comey stunningly admitted to congress (March 20th) he was actively working with the Obama White House, Susan Rice (Nat. Sec. Adviser), James Clapper (ODNI) and Sally Yates (Asst. AG – DOJ), all political operatives, while intentionally not allowing intelligence investigation oversight from congress.

    Yup a firing offense, comedy failed to notify congress. Had to do it quarterly and he failed to do so.

  1176. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    When over a period of a year, every political faction in the country has called for you to resign, it probably was best to do so.
    No matter what Comey did, he would be accused of bias.

  1177. wvally says:

    Jeremy Peters in NY Times making the case that hysterical overreaction of left/media, making everything into constitutional crisis, plays into Trump’s hands.

    ***

    More clearly than other recent Trump-induced uproars, the reaction to the Comey firing illustrated how many conservatives now justify their defense of the president as part of a fight against a rising tide of overreaction and manufactured hysteria by the left. Mr. Trump, who has long understood the political power of demonizing his opponents as crazed and irrational, has helped stoke those resentments.

    The drats are triggered by the tweets, especially today.

  1200. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Disagree, the turnout in blue collar areas of the Midwest and heartland of the country was up substantially. This is a quote from the book “Shattered”:

    “No, Schale explained, Trump’s numbers weren’t just big, they were unreal. In rural Polk County, smack-dab in the center of the state, Hillary would collect 3,000 more votes than Obama did in 2012 — but Trump would add more than 25,000 votes to Mitt Romney’s total. In Pasco County, a swath of suburbs north of Tampa-St. Petersburg, Trump outran Romney by 30,000 votes.

    This was a lot more than just an anti-Hillary vote; just as there was more to Sanders support than his opposition to Hillary.

    The issue is not for Trump to stop using twitter, it is for him to learn to control himself and what he says on twitter.

  1201. blobbie says:

    #1232 bonus points for jason!

    Heh, Erick Erickson now.

    What was your opinion of him BEFORE Trump, Robbie?

  1205. wvally says:

    Take 10 steps back from the controversies of the day, and ask yourself: over the long term, will Trump have done more damage to the left or the right?

    Prior to the election many Rs were worried he would destroy the Republican Party. I don’t think so. He’s not a conservative and everyone knows he’s at odds with the R establishment.

    What Trump has been most successful at is truly exposing the collusion between MSM and the left. And the fact that the media fabricates and lies. It’s now widely accepted. After he’s long gone their reputation is still ruined.

    Smart, politically adept Rs of the future should be able to use this to their advantage and not be as cowed by media and political correctness as Rs of the past.

    What is frustrating for many, I think, is that it is so obvious the media credibility has been destroyed, and if Trump weren’t such a nut he could be capitalizing on it “bigly”.

    But if he weren’t such a nut he wouldn’t have had the balls to challenge them so boldly in the first place.

    I’m grateful for the judges, and interruption of forward progress of leftist agenda the federal government. I’m sanguine about the day to day.

  1206. Tina says:

    Ee was referred to as Eric the red here.

    rejecting Clinton was part of it

    but the people rejected jeb, rubio, paul, etc. too

    that the “establishment” cannot accept this is hilarious

  1210. NYCmike says:

    wvally,

    Thank you for writing that out. I don’t think I would change one word.

    One thing I am curious about: What does it matter what type of wine you are drinking?

    (“I’m sanguine about the day to day.” – I prefer a nice chianti myself.)

  1211. Trump says:

    The stupidity shown by Robbie retrd’s is hard to surpass. Unparalleled.

    If America rejecting Hillary was the reason, Jeb would be president.

    Instead he is curled up in a fetal position whimpering mommy.

    While trump is enjoying himself kicking the likes of Robbie and media on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times a day.

    The Del side no of Robbie retard are just an extension of his brokered convention nonsense. A mind wasted by sucking on Jeb’s nuts.

    No amount of kicking this as-wipe is enough.

  1212. Trump says:

    And I meant mind in the broadest sense. What Robbie retard has is not a normal mind. Just a shriveled up imitation, bleached of any sense by Jeb’s juices.

  1213. Trump says:

    Anyone figure out who Phil mattingly is, and why anyone would care about his tweet? Apart, of course, the retarder monkey Robbie, who, as shown above, is nothing more than a bleached mind moron.

    Just a few weeks ago, Comey was being touted as the most powerful man in Washington.

    Then trump called and said, “you wiretap led me and you lied, as$hole. You are fired!!! Don’t bother picking up your effects from the office.”””

    Comey will be lucky if he escapes jail time.

    If Wobbie couldn’t whine about Trump’s twitter what would he be whining about?

    We know it would be something.

  1238. Tina says:

    Well, he may since he is twubbled and concerned.

    You have to admire the astounding hypocrisy.

  1240. jason says:

    – This is fricking dumb. Every word of it.”

    Translation: Bullseye. I have Wobbie figured out to a T.

    Face it, Wobbie, you don’t like Trump’s tweets because they counter what you think of divine origin, the MSM.
    Let’s not complicate things.
    You want the MSM to dictate the narrative and Trump’s tweets are in the way.”

    Direct hit.

  1241. jason says:

    Trump got elected because America rejected Clinton. It had nothing to do with Twitter.”

    Trump was in a position to beat Clinton because of Twitter, interviews, and rallies.

    Jason,

    that statement was from MD’s twitter.

  1255. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder if MD is worried that Trump will order Author’s sister to commit war crimes.

  1256. Trump says:

    Trump haters have always been mentally unhinged.

    Nothing else explains their demented delusions.

  1257. Trump says:

    And they are America hating traitors to boot.

  1258. Trump says:

    Trump keeps shiny the lights on corruption and incompetence among the so-called elites.

    Obviously, they can’t stand it.

  1259. Phil says:

    MSM continues to throw everything they have at Donald Trump – a 24 – 7 full court press using everything they have at Trump. They are relentless. I have never seen anything like this. Every story is slanted as though it was written by the DNC. It may as well have been. Still, there is forty percent, maybe as high as forty two percent of the electorate that will not be moved by the media. This portion of the electorate is the portion that loaths the MSM and believes they are nothing but liars. The MSM has no sway over a good chunk of the American people.

    For the media and the elites to take Trump out – and that is their goal, they will still need the help of a recession, a real dip in the economy. Their hatred for Trump is not a enough because of their lack of credibility with such a significant portion of the electorate. Economic events will have to be involved to get Trump into the low 30s where he will be the burnt toast that the left dreams of.

  1260. jason says:

    For those that think the MSM has no influence, look at Corey, MD, Author and Wobbie. Their influence might be on the wane, they might no longer have the floor to themselves, but millions watch ABC, NBC and CBS news every night. CNN and MSNBC too.

    Thse guys should know better. But there are millions like them. Wobbie was always wobbly, Corey too. Author to a lesser extent. MD is a surprise.

    They can’t look at the big picture. And the big picture is not Trump’s tweets or his interviews.

  1261. jason says:

    It’s amazing.

    CNN has a headline “Clapper says there may be evidence of collusion”.

    Then you read the article and he says but the potential evidence does not rise to the level needed to establish as fact.

    It’s horrendous. Like Pravda. Worse because at least Pravda was in a police state. What is the excuse here?

  1271. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Regarding leftist media bias. This from Fox News:

    “An Ohio man who supported the state’s governor during the 2016 election said President Trump’s treatment in the press is turning him into a Trump supporter.

    Dennis Dixon would not say whether he would vote to reelect Trump if the election were held today but said the man is not getting a fair shake.

    He said that last November, he did not vote for Trump or Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) but instead voted for a write-in candidate.”

    CNN and other leftist media actually help Trump by the nature of their bias attacks on him. It strengthens his support from his base, and makes a lot of “moderates”, who did not vote for him, support him.

    If your choosing between the a wild man and the abyss, your going with the wild man.

  1272. Walt says:

    You know when I said I was finished chores and working about 2 hours ago?

    I was wrong.

And that’s a markedly different role than trying to prevent harmful policies from an imperial president.””

    Also, his line about Mike Pence towards the end…..that is the type of hard-nosed attitude we would NOT have gotten from Dewhurst, and we don’t get from the McCain-Collins-Graham-Corker types.

    They commented that she could potentially move up to 125 lbs for a second belt.

    But thought I should point out that Valentina Shevchenko who fights 125 lbs in UFC and who holds a 56-2 Muy Thai record had one of those 56 wins over a Joanna J?drzejczyk.

    The woman of Muy Thai…

    If Trump does decide to overhaul his White House staff, one imperative for him should be to find a highly respected and admired person to serve as chief of staff. More than anything else, he needs someone who can bring order to the White House.

    Two names I think would be excellent choices are David Petraeus and Robert Gates. Both have already show they can effectively run important beauracracies and both would be men that Trump would see as equals due to their excellent resumes. They might also be able to tell Trump no occasionally as well.

    I doubt either would be chosen if the job becomes available, but I think a move like this would do wonders for Trump and his desire to have an effective operation.

    – I’m in total agreement. Not about me, but that unless Trump gives real control to a chief of staff, rearranging the deck chairs won’t matter. Hopefully, a better, more experienced, and respected top staff will change the momentum. He needs his own James Baker whoever that might be.

  1311. Tina says:

    Poor schumah.

    While notable, Schumer’s threat may be a bit toothless: Republicans have 52 seats in the Senate, and a rules changes made in 2013 by Democrats means that whomever Trump nominates only requires a simple majority vote to be confirmed. But the Democratic leader’s comments signal that any Trump pick is likely to face a politically charged confirmation fight and that Justice Department leaders can expect to continue facing pressure to name an independent prosecutor.

    1357. You cherry picked information from the Gravis poll. Here is what Gravis had to say:

    “Roswell, Ga. – With a little more than 5 weeks to go before the June 20th election, Jon Ossoff holds a 47% to 45% lead over Karen Handel in the race for Georgia’s 6th Congressional seat.

    Fascinatingly, although Ossoff holds a slight lead over Handel, Handel holds a surprising lead in the favorability rating, with 41% of respondents giving Handel a favorable rating and only 35% giving her an unfavorable rating. The results are flipped when discussing Ossoff. Respondents gave Ossoff a 40% favorability rating and a 45% unfavorability rating.
    Georgians also gave Handel a 45% to 43% edge on whom they trust most to handle healthcare, even though only 33% of respondents gave the healthcare law passed by the U.S. House of Representatives a favorable rating, while 42% gave the law an unfavorable rating.

    The poll also finds President Trump to have a positive favorability rating, with 46% of respondents approving of the job Trump is doing as president and 43% giving Trump a disapproval rating.
    Survey participants were also asked how they felt about Governor Deal. Governor Deal has a strong approvability rating, with 53% of respondents giving Governor Deal a positive approval rating and only 26% of respondents disapproving of his job performance.”

  1314. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1357. Trump won the Georgia 6th District by 48%, to 47% for Clinton. The Gravis poll shows he now has a favorable rating of 46% in the district, versus 43% unfavorable. Does not look like your claim that “Healthcare and the Firing of Comey may come back to haunt in the GA-06” is happening.

  1318. Bitterlaw says:

  1319. Wes says:

    I would say the tepid campaign Handel is running is buoying Ossoff. She’s making a concerted effort to avoid debates whkle Ossoff is actively seeking them and, typically of her, is not being a prodigious fundraiser even as Ossoff is flush with cash.

    Jason had to rewrite history to create a fictional GOP primary for the special and say Handel got 42% of the vote in said mythological primary when actually Handel, despite a significant name ID advantage and the largest base of support of all the candidates, only received 19.8% of the vote in the real primary–the jungle primary featuring Indies, Republicans, and Democrats.

    All of this Jason had to do to tell us Handel is some kind of amazing candidate. The reality of the situation, as I can attest from having watch Handel campaign up close a decade ago, is thst although a likable person, she has always been a bland candidate, never raising large amounts of money despite the increasing need for such as Georgia has become increasingly expensive to campaign in and also never organizing on-the-ground or GOTV operations well.

    That’s why Deal caught up to her and beat her in the 2010 runoff and she became a footnote in 2014 despite again having a strong base of support and high name ID.

    Nowhere is her tepidness as a candidate more on display than in the current debate over the debate schedule going on down there. Ossoff is publicly announcing commitments from several news outlets for debates while Handel is coyly saying she hasn’t committed to any debates yet. Whatever the merits of her reasons for eschewing Ossoff’s proposed debate schedule, Handel could at least propose an alternate schedule of events to face Ossoff at. Instead, she publicly looks scared while Ossoff looks confident.

    In the end, Karen Handel is a tepid candidate who won her only statewide election by the sheer luck of strong gubernatorial coattails and an open seat in an increasjngly GOP state. She hasn’t exactly impressed voters in GA-6 this year despite her own advantages and Ossoff’s deficiencies. Universal name ID from appearing on the ballot five times across the district (in three primaries, a runoff, and a general election) and a solid base of support made her the GOP nominee this time around over three lesser-knoen Republicans.

    Despite this, her showing was not at all impressive.

    She is an at best average candidate who’s trailed her Dem opponent in all but one poll released since the jungle primary. Fortunately the margin has been slight for Ossoff, suggesting Handel can close well. She needs to do so. Realistically because Donald Trump and Nathsn Deal are fairly popular in the district, sn Ossoff win will be a referendum on Handel rather than them.

    Nonetheless, Dems will be able to spin it as a rejection of Trump and use it as a rallying cry for candidates going into 2018 even though Handel herself, being an uninspiring candidate, will be principally at fault.

  1320. Wes says:

    I want Handel to win, but realistically she needs to step up her campaign before Ossoff coakleys her in the runoff.

  1321. Wes says:

    Mikey, Mo Brooks is the Alabama Congressman who succeeded Parker Griffith in the House in 2011. He presaged his entry into the race by citing a poll saying Roy Moore–a former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice obsessed with displaying the 10 Commsndments publicly and the only Republican capable of losing the seat–led Luther Strange in the GOP primary for AL-Sen.

    He would actually make a good Senator since Moore is bat droppings psycho and Strange has the potential taint of being perceived as a political appointment to obviate an ongoing ethics investigation against Bob Bentley.
