  1. Gpo says:

    First

  2. ProgressiveCT says:

    Vote Democratic!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. lisab says:

    finally a new thread

  4. Trump says:

    The world is watching!

  5. Trump says:

    For the record, #4 is fake fake trump.

    Not cool, bro.

    I have a rep to maintain.

  6. Trump says:

    Don’t listen to the fake Trump trying to bring the real Trump down.

  7. lisab says:

    Lisab – If you want to mock me for wanting to serve my country in a mi,Italy capacity, go ahead.
    ——————–

    as i said bitter, the country does not need you to serve in the military, we have others for that

    and they will be comforted knowing that while they serve in afghanistan, which is very dangerous, someone like yourself,

    who physically is not able to serve with them

    is taking care of their husbands, wives and children at home.

    obviously those men and women in the military cannot take care of everything … so it is great we have patriots like yourself to stand up and answer the call when the country called you.

  8. lisab says:

    true, it is not as dangerous as serving in afghanistan — well … detroit is dangerous, but if you stay in the green zone you should be ok —

    but that just means it is less of a sacrifice for you to serve here at home.

    and then … you will be able to shame those who have not served their country, like you did several times on the last thread and many times in the past

    but you will be able to honestly say … i served my country to the best of my ability

  9. Trump says:

    Don’t give up Republican Senators, the World is watching…you still have time to repeal Obamacare and lose big in 2018.

  10. Trump says:

    Further to the fusion gps comment in the last thread,

    “DWS and the Pakistani IT scammers/ There’s more than bank fraud going on here”

    The dots are connecting, DNC to fusion gps. The Pakistani brothers sold the DNC emails to fusion gps, who sold them to wikileaks.

    If only you had a competent attorney general…

  11. lisab says:

    I knew that he (mccain) carpetbagged to Arizona , because there were no safe seats out East
    ———————————–

    yes he was a carpetbagger

    but as he truthfully pointed out at the time, love him or hate him,

    his longest residency was at the hanoi hilton

  12. Trump says:

    It appears that Jared Kushner was able to spot the fusion gos scam in 10 minutes.

    Smart kid.

    No wonder the cretin Robbie has dropped this….

  13. lisab says:

    1848. “In fact, John Kerry is even more of an American hero than John McCain.”
    ————————-

    i don’t like the goose murderer as much as the next gal

    but

    he served

    in combat

    on a swift boat

    that was a pretty dangerous assignment.

  14. lisab says:

    Just think of the cretin Robbie as a democrat water carrier, and it all makes sense.
    ——————————————–

    exactly …

    if you think that everything he says is to make the democrats and their causes as strong as possible

    he completely makes sense.

  15. Trump says:

    Ha ha ha

    Lisab, that makes him a veritable war hero.

    Regardless of how much the bitter moron flings his republican poo at it.

    Republican, as in Dennis Hastert too.

  16. Trump says:

    Going back to Dws and her Pakistani cohorts…since the away brothers were hacking into DNC computers, it’s no wonder Dws did not want FBI looking at those servers.

    And the most respected man in DC, James Comey, made sure it remained that way.

    If only we had a competent attorney general….

  17. Trump says:

    Is it any wonder that the cretin Robbie dropped the Jared testimony?

    Getting too close to his masters….

  18. Phil says:

    The more I know about Comey……….

  19. lisab says:

    john kerry may or may not be a war hero

    it is not for me to say who deserves that monicker having never served in combat myself. i more of a “run away run away” type of person

    but he served the country

    in war time

    in a job where he could have been killed rather easily and unpleasantly

    that is good enough to say he served his country in my book

  20. Trump says:

    Comey was installed as consigliere for the Obama/Clinton crime syndicate.

    Read up on his background over the last 20 years.

  21. Trump says:

    Well, lisab, I have been told that his service immunizes Kerry from any criticism for anything for eternity.

    Good for the goose….

  22. Trump says:

    Phil,

    All these creatures never expected to get caught. Hillary was a shoo-in.

    Now, if only we had a competent attorney general who showed up for work as expected…

  23. lisab says:

    Well, lisab, I have been told that his service immunizes Kerry from any criticism for anything for eternity.
    ————————–

    well you have been told wrong

    AND

    as a young man he had some admirable qualities

  24. Trump says:

    Pelosi:

    “Unimportant” to win midterm elections.

    Damn, I didn’t think she was this smart, to realize that propping up Obamacare has resulted in the loss of the house, the senate, the presidency, state governorships, and about a thousand other legislative seat across the country since 2010.

    Keep it up.

  25. Bitterlaw says:

    The lies continue. I never said that McCain can’t be criticized. I said that his war hero status and decades of a mostly conservative voting record are good enough for me. When I disagree with his vote, I remember that he earned the right to be wrong.

  26. Bitterlaw says:

    lisab – I don’t want to serve as a liberal do-gooder. I wanted to serve in the military. A discriminatory policy prevented that.

  27. Cash Cow TM says:

    Today we worked to get the bean picker hooked up and running.

    We also trimmed while one grandson mowed…until the mower cord ran out…and then the gas powered trimmer refused to start…

    Then we ate and played and Walt again washed a ton of dishes…he is a dish washing maniac.

    And we went out to move the sheep into another pasture…some had also muscled their way past a gate into another pasture they were not supposed to be in…and one of the water hoses busted and we had to replace that…

    And we found a dead lamb. I say the coyotes got him. Bastards.

  28. lisab says:

    I don’t want to serve as a liberal do-gooder. I wanted to serve in the military.
    ————————————-

    and i wanted to be a nasa astronaut …

    but you either choose to serve your country in the capacity for which you are needed and for which you are capable

    or you choose not to serve your country

    your country never said that you would enjoy serving or that it would be convenient.

  29. Cash Cow TM says:

    We had to be ingenuous to find a way to bend a critical piece of the bean picker to receive the hydrolics mechanism..used all kinds of things including a truck jack.

    Farmers always have to figure out how to overcome problems…Oh and Walt smashed his finger…I told him to suck it up.

  30. Trump says:

    Why doesn’t the same principle apply to John Kerry, idiot?

    Why hasn’t Kerry earned the right to be wrong?

    By your own standards, Kerry has the same resume as McCain. Apart from capture.

  31. Trump says:

    You still dodged the question.

    Is it ok to criticize a democratic war hero?

  32. Phil says:

    Interesting article up right now over at Powerline about Schumer reaching across party lines to convince Collins, Murkowski, and McCain to switch parties and give Democrats the Senate.

    Hey, McCain is a really big hero this week with the MSM as it is. This is your chance, John, to be the ultimate really, really, really Colossal hero with your buds at CNN and the Washington Post. Go for to, John!

  33. lisab says:

    did you try a blowtorch?

  34. lisab says:

    did you try a blowtorch?
    —————–

    on the bean picker

    not john kerry

  35. Bitterlaw says:

    Kerry earned the right to be wrong and he has been wrong 100% of the time by virtue of being a Democrat.

  36. Trump says:

    So the letter D or R the determining factor?

    I guessed as much.

    Dennis Hastert is an R too.

  37. Robbie says:

    Trump says:

    Is it any wonder that the cretin Robbie dropped the Jared testimony?
    Getting too close to his masters….

    – I would have to check the archives, but I don’t think I ever suggested Kushner’s behind closed doors testimony would be a big deal.

    That said, ten days ago the Senate Judiciary Committee did say they were going to have Don Jr. and Manafort testify last Wednesday and I thought that would be a media circus. Eventually, the two sides negotiated Don Jr. and Manfort would testify behind closed doors.

  38. Bitterlaw says:

    Your contempt for POWs makes you the worst person to ever post here. Congratulations.

  39. Trump says:

    Say, the cretin would need to check the archives.

    Douchebag, go and find the phrase, tighten the seat belts.

    “I don’t remember” is for crooks.

  40. Trump says:

    Fu ck off. Moron.

    You are a stupid hypocrite who thinks he is a lah di da with all the right answers.

    In actuality, you are nothing but an illiterate and innumerate hack.

  41. Trump says:

    I have contempt for backstabbing grandstander a that you love to suck.

    Plain English, moron.

  42. Trump says:

    Go fight the civil war, douche.

  43. Robbie says:

    Phil says:
    July 30, 2017 at 11:27 pm
    Interesting article up right now over at Powerline about Schumer reaching across party lines to convince Collins, Murkowski, and McCain to switch parties and give Democrats the Senate.

    – That’s not going to happen. Powerline is just stoking the anger of their leaders. They become very MAGA.

    The bill was a dog with 15% approval. McCain, Murkowski, and Collins did the party a favor. Better to move on to tax reform.

    Healthcare is the Bermuda Triangle for political parties. They enter as a majority and exit as a minority.

  44. Trump says:

    Your hero McCain the liar is not the only pow.

    He is just the one who made a career out of it.

  45. Robbie says:

    Trump says:
    July 30, 2017 at 11:37 pm
    Fu ck off. Moron.

    – Looks like soccer moron is up past his bedtime tonight.

  46. Trump says:

    The cretin is piping up.

    How’s that for a backtrack, cretin?

    How did the Jared testimony, that you were masturbating over, turn out?

  47. Robbie says:

    Trump says:
    July 30, 2017 at 11:43 pm
    The cretin is piping up.
    How’s that for a backtrack, cretin?
    How did the Jared testimony, that you were masturbating over, turn out?

    – You’ve got an odd fixation about male gratification. There are clinics that can help you deal with that though. Maybe you can go to the one Tiger Woods used. Some of us might be pulling for you, but not all of us.

  48. Trump says:

    Own it, douchebag.
    carrying water for your dem masters has really sapped you brain to sub cretin levels.

  49. lisab says:

    julstol will soon be on the unemployment line
    ———————————-

    Starbucks to close down all Teavana locations, impacting 3,300 jobs

    “The company concluded that despite efforts to reverse the trend through creative merchandising and new store designs, the underperformance was likely to continue,” Starbucks said in a press release.

  50. Bitterlaw says:

    Learn the definition of “illiterate.” You have no idea what it means.

  51. lisab says:

    maybe if they did not sell teapots for $60 and teach for $10 an ounce

    they might get more customers

  52. lisab says:

    tea for $10 an ounce, not teach!

  53. Trump says:

    Your butt buddy Jeb commissioned the Russia dossier from fusion gps, cretin.

    No wonder you are silent about it.

    Exposes you as the liar you have always been.

  54. Trump says:

    You see words, you can’t figure out what they mean, moron.

  55. Robbie says:

    Own that 39% approval rating for Trump, soccer moron. In fact, take a screen shot of it. Who knows? A few months from now, you and the rest of the MAGA morons may need that memory to boost your sagging morale.

  56. Robbie says:

    Trump says:
    July 30, 2017 at 11:51 pm
    Your butt buddy Jeb commissioned the Russia dossier from fusion gps, cretin.
    No wonder you are silent about it.
    Exposes you as the liar you have always been.

    – Somebody’s been watching a little too much Sean Hannity lately. That’s never a good idea.

  57. Trump says:

    He is the president, douchebag.

    Unlike your butt fuc ker Jeb.

  58. Trump says:

    So, how’s the Jared testimony turn out for you, cretin?

    Satisfying? Good release of your pent up hatred?

  59. Trump says:

    Keep hanging your hat on fake polls, douche bag.

    You are too stupid to learn from nov. how did nov 8 feel for you? Did it hurt much?

    What time on election night did you vanish, cretin?

  60. Trump says:

    Remember the triumphant chest beating early evening of nov 8.

    You really showed the trump supporters what a loser trump wa, didn’t you?

    Then poof…it is as trump just slammed both his knees into your groin.

  61. Trump says:

    How long did it take to recover, cretin?

    3 months!

  62. lisab says:

    megyn kelly’s show was cancelled

  63. Trump says:

    Trump knows how to destroy someone’s brand.

    Ask Jeb. And Meghyn.

  64. Diogenes says:

    If Obamacare had truly been as terrible as described, it would not have been difficult to repeal it. Not only would every Republican have voted against it, pressure against Red State Democrats would’ve pushed at least Manchin and Heitkamp and O’Donnell to vote for it.

    Every single plank of Obamacare polls positively except the Mandate. If you get rid of the mandate; insurance enters into a death spiral, millions lose their insurance, and everybody’s premiums go up by at least 20%.

    If you think the GOP would not have become the permanent minority party for a generation over that, you are out of your goddamn mind.

    The far-right has taken too many shortcuts in its rage. You elected a guy with literally no ideas and no respect for expert opinion and you got a bunch of legislation that was deeply unpopular.

    Next time come to the table after having done your homework.

  65. lisab says:

    robbie,

    trump is currently about -13 fav/unf

    that is actually better than it was on nov 7th

    and the last two weeks have not been great in congress for trump. yes, he has been winning on the russian stuff and on immigration,

    but congress has been the focus for two weeks and it ended with priebus leaving …

    soooooooo, -13 is pretty good. he would have probably taken minnesota, nh, and nv if he had today’s fav/unf on nov 7th.

  66. lisab says:

    If Obamacare had truly been as terrible as described, it would not have been difficult to repeal it.
    —————————–

    it is terrible for the middle class

    it is GREAT! for people who are unemployed.

    AND

    coincidently insurance companies

  67. Trump says:

    Democratic survey backed by the House Majority Pac, the dem organ.

    “The poll surveyed working class white voters in pivotal districts that the democrats are targeting in the mid terms. Despite he trump turmoils in Washington, republicans held a 10-point lead on the generic ballot (43-33). Democrats hold a whopping 61 percent disapproval rating among these voters….

    By a stunning 35 point margin, blue collar white voters believe that republicans will be better at improving the economy and creating jobs than democrats. Under trump, the economy has been growing – even in disadvantaged parts of the country…

    The more uncomfortable reality is that these blue-collar voters’ resistance to democrats is on cultural grounds…”

  68. lisab says:

    in the past if a welfare recipient went in for an appendix operation, or a broken finger, it did not matter … the hospital ate the cost, which was then passed partially on to the insurance companies … because you cannot get money out of a welfare person and you cannot turn them away.

    but now welfare people have insurance, paid for by the government, sooooooo the hospital and insurance companies get paid.

    plus

    working people who actually pay for their own insurance have had their deductibles increase to $7,000 to $15,000

    but

    that doesn’t matter because they have to pay. if you own a house or a car or furniture etc. they can just come and take them if you don’t pay

    and

    garnish your salary

    obamacare was win-win for the insurance companies and welfare people

  69. lisab says:

    By a stunning 35 point margin, blue collar white voters believe that republicans will be better at improving the economy and creating jobs than democrats.
    —————————

    well yeah …

    if you actually work you now have WORSE health care than someone who has never worked in their life

    and you pay for their doctors, which you can no longer afford to see

    of course you support trump if you work

  70. Trump says:

    Gee, economic growth and jobs result in winning?

    That’s not right…

    Everyone knows transgender rights are the key.

  71. lisab says:

    of course if you have a government job

    you have good health care too

    so it is not a problem for us either.

    but truthfully i never had so little care about finances as when i was unemployed in massachusetts

  72. Trump says:

    And Russia, of course.

  73. lisab says:

    Everyone knows transgender rights are the key.
    —————————

    they want to “serve their country”

    and then get the free operations, and hormone treatments for life

    but it is much like bitterlaw’s desire to serve, that just is not a good offer from the taxpayers’ point of view

    we foot their medical bills for life, and in return they don’t actually do very much

  74. Diogenes says:

    Lisab with her cognitive diarrhea saved only by the fact we have straight up trolls like Trump & Trump on this board (MNW by another name perhaps).

    Obamacare isn’t doing anything for the unemployed if you happen to be in one of those red states that didn’t expand medicaid.

    As for the middle class they are a little better off. Essential benefits means you won’t die because your cheapo insurance happens to not cover oh, say cancer like it did before. All plans have to cover it now. And the focus on cheap preventive care means more people are incentivized to take their health more seriously.

    Health care premiums have still been going up but not as fast as they were before.

    It is the permanent Republican lie that rising healthcare costs are all because of Obamacare. It is more because our population is aging and there is now 2 taxpayers for every 1 beneficiary in our welfare system (and those beneficiaries are mostly old white republicans). The same math applies to private health insurance.

    You want it to get better?

    Tax the super rich a little bit and pay for the healthcare of high-risk people. It worked for Alaska and it would’ve on a national scale.

    Even supposed “conservatives” like Tina would’ve not really cared once they saw their premiums gone down. It would’ve been the most amazing Fait Accompli for the GOP to manipulate their base by implementing a Democratic idea to fix Obamacare while blaming the Dems for Obamacare.

    But the GOP couldn’t do that. Too many congressional critters are bought and paid for by the Koch Brothers who only want their own taxes to go down.

    Too bad, so sad.

  75. lisab says:

    And Russia, of course.
    ——————–

    no, that is actually problematic now that hillary’s contacts are coming out, debbie wasserman and all

  76. Trump says:

    And btw, just so the morons keep track of important stuff (not you bitter moron, you wouldn’t understand), the GDP grew 2.6 percent in Q2, after the revised 1.2 percent in Q1.

    Cruising to re-election.

  77. lisab says:

    As for the middle class they are a little better off.
    —————————

    no we are clearly not

    a sudden $14,000 bill is not something that most middle class families can pay

    it is great that you get great coverage for free

    but the middle class pays a lot for ends up being catastrophic coverage. we can only go to the hospital in an emergency

    well … not me … i just have a $20 co-pay

    but if i worked in the private sector

  78. lisab says:

    Tax the super rich a little bit and pay for the healthcare of high-risk people.
    ———————————–

    unfortunately the “super-rich” as the dems define them actually have a job and are not really super rich

    try really taxing the “super-rich” by imposing a wealth tax instead of an income tax

    and watch the buffet, gates, bezos and zuckerberg run and hide

    they don’t get w2 forms

  79. lisab says:

    if i was a congressman

    the next time one of those billionaires said, “i think we SHOULD raise taxes on the wealthy”

    i would say, “GREAT! let’s tax billionaires 3% of their wealth per year! how does that strike you?!

  80. lisab says:

    you could tax all of those guys plus the koch brothers at 90% of their salary and they would not blink an eye. they probably carry that in their wallet.

  81. Cash Cow TM says:

    We did not use blowtorch on the bean picker.

    I am saving it to use on the coyotes.

    And liberal democrats.

  82. lisab says:

    I am saving it to use on the coyotes.

    And liberal democrats.
    ————————

    just to be clear

    i am not a democrat 🙂

  83. lisab says:

    warren buffet’s salary last year was $100,000

    less than a dentist

    he wouldn’t care if you taxed him at 100%

  84. Trump says:

    Are you ignoring non-salary income?

  85. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Whatever I may think of Trump, the Democrats are worse. In this interview Schumer comes across as a complete loon. Oil prices never go down? Really?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbbKJAxZRnU

    A choice between Schumer/Pelosi or Trump? No wonder the Republicans have won all the congressional special elections this year. Their not even contesting the one coming up in Utah.

  86. lisab says:

    Are you ignoring non-salary income?
    ===================================

    not at all. it is just far easier to hide and is often taxed differently.

    but if you told bill gates, “you want higher taxes? sure, no problem. gives us 3% of your microsoft stock” his tune would radically change

  87. PresidentPaul! says:

    Fat Bastard from Austin Powers movie gets in fans face while holding his nachos.

    NJ gov gets in Cubs fan’s face: ‘You’re a big shot’

    “Joseph said the former presidential candidate made contact with him with his knee and asked if he wanted to “do something” and “start something.”

    “(He) was yelling at me. First he told me, ‘Why don’t you have another beer?’ which I thought was a decent come back, and I thought that was kind of funny,” said Joseph. “Then he started calling me a tough guy.”

    Hutchison began recording video at the end of the confrontation.

    Despite having Christie just inches from his face, Joseph said he remained calm.

    “He is a public official and this is America and I think we have the right to say what you believe as long as it’s not crude or profane,” Joseph said.”

  88. PresidentPaul! says:

    Aung San Suu Kyi former nobel peace prize winner now an Apologist for Genocide Against Muslims?

    https://theintercept.com/2017/04/13/burmese-nobel-prize-winner-aung-san-suu-kyi-has-turned-into-an-apologist-for-genocide-against-muslims/


    These days, however, she is also an apologist for genocide, ethnic cleansing and mass rape.

    For the past year, Aung San Suu Kyi has been State Counselor, or de facto head of government, in Myanmar, where members of the Rohingya Muslim minority in the northern Rakhine state have been shot, stabbed, starved, robbed, raped and driven from their homes in the hundreds of thousands. In December, while the world focused on the fall of Aleppo, more than a dozen Nobel Laureates published an open letter warning of a tragedy in Rakhine “amounting to ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.”

    In February, a report by the United Nations documented how the Burmese army’s attacks on the Rohingya were “widespread as well as systematic” thus “indicating the very likely commission of crimes against humanity.” More than half of the 101 Rohingya women interviewed by UN investigators across the border in Bangladesh said they had suffered rape or other forms of sexual violence at the hands of security forces. “They beat and killed my husband with a knife,” one survivor recalled. “Five of them took off my clothes and raped me. My eight-month old son was crying of hunger when they were in my house because he wanted to breastfeed, so to silence him they killed him too with a knife.”

    And the response of Aung San Suu Kyi? This once-proud campaigner against wartime rape and human rights abuses by the Burmese military has opted to borrow from the Donald Trump playbook of denial and deflection. Her office accused Rohingya women of fabricating stories of sexual violence and put the words “fake rape” — in the form of a banner headline, no less — on its official website. A spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry — also controlled directly by Aung San Suu Kyi — dismissed “made-up stories, blown out of proportion.” In February, the State Counselor herself reportedly told the Archbishop of Yangon, Charles Bo, that the international community is exaggerating the Rohingya issue.”

    McCain Blasts Rand For Blocking Annual Defense Bill Vote

    “Senator Rand Paul requested two bipartisan amendments, one on ending indefinite detention and one on AUMFs. He looks forward to working with leadership and the committee to get this done soon,” Gor said.
    The Senate NDAA is now likely to be pushed back as far as September.

  90. Jonesy says:

    I had never heard, until yesterday, that John McCain cheated on his first wife after she raised his sons while he was a POW.

    His current wife Cindy, is a homewrecking S*&T.

    How can any conservative Defend McCain?

  91. Jonesy says:

    Is it true that a present cabinet member can switch jobs in the Administration, and not have to be confirmed again?

    Robbie type fake news rumors out there that Pruitt of EPA, former Okla AG, can flip into Sessions slot.

  92. PresidentPaul! says:

    Red pill or the blue pill?

    Robbie ate the JebPill instead.

  93. Jonesy says:

    Wow! Netflix is $20 Billion in debt, and all their shows still stink.

  94. Jonesy says:

    Paul, At this point the Pentagon and its funding is not a priority to me. I always support the troops, but not the fatcats over there who make deals with John McCain and the Neocons

    McCain, Murk, and Collins torpedo a bad healthcare bill, and Robbie says move on to next thing.

    Someone remind me, what did Robbie (and other at HHR) say about the HFC when they did not support the first healthcare bill in the House (you know, the one with a 17% approval rating)?

    You defended the HFC, NYC. Now you attack McCain for doing the same thing.

    I attacked the HFC. I’m not defending McCain since I do not agree with his vote but I still respect him.

    “Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) on Friday came out against the revised Senate ObamaCare replacement bill, urging Republicans to instead work with Democrats on a solution.

    Kasich has been a strong defender of ObamaCare’s expansion of Medicaid in Ohio and pointed to the Medicaid cuts in the bill, which remain essentially unchanged from the initial version.”

    Michael McCaul’s Alliance with Eric Cantor Threatens to Crater His Career

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/12/03/mccaul-dhs-no-wall-immigration-reformers/

    Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, who could have had a clean path to serving as President-elect Donald J. Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary, is instead facing a buzzsaw of criticism for his decision to align himself with discredited globalist and rejected House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on the issue of immigration.
    In recent days, proponents of immigration controls have issued repeated warnings to Trump’s transition team: Pick Rep. McCaul, and you’ll get no wall, they say–pointing specifically to McCaul’s record of championing Cantor’s expansionist immigration agenda

    As a physician, you have seen first­hand how ObamaCare has reduced our liberties in just a few short years. During your time as state senator, you have fought to reduce the size of government and restore the liberties of Arizonans. We need to elect more people into the U.S. Senate to stand alongside my son, Rand Paul. Because of your dedication to smaller government and restoring more of our personal liberties, I am proud to endorse your campaign for the U.S. Senate.”

  148. Tina says:

    “They formed and chose to campaign on repeal and replace for the following seven years, and they did so to great electoral effect,” he said. “When in reality, about half of the caucus in the Senate, and perhaps even more, was totally unwilling to ever get to full repeal and replace.”

    “You can watch his remarks in full here. On Sunday, Ohio Gov. John Kasich underlined Domenech’s point, saying he’s “glad” Republicans haven’t fulfilled seven years of campaign pledges to repeal Obamacare and that they should instead focus on proposals that garner Democrat approval. These typically would reinforce and extend Obamacare rather than repeal or replace it.”

    -I called out Kasich when he expanded Medicare/Medicaid in Ohio. MD, jason, etc lambasted me for that, and kept repeating how good of a conservative Republican Kasich is/was through the years.

    Well, actions speak louder than words, as we saw last week with McCain, Murk, etc.

  175. NYCmike says:

    Ted Cruz hates publicity, right? Government shutdown and filibustering. Telling people that they did not have to vote for Trump during his speech at the RNC. Just examples of Cruz being quiet and hiding in the shadows.

  185. Bitterlaw says:

    Watching NYC align himself with the vulgar Poster Trump is pretty hard to watch, too.

    I do not think she is a credible source.

  187. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    Ted Cruz is man enough to stand up for what he believes. You call it “showboating”. OF course, he tells everybody BEFORE he does it, that IF THEY VOTE TO FUND OBAMACARE, I will filibuster to shut down government.

    Once again, you allow, with no criticism, expansion of government, as with McCain, Murk, Collins, but criticise Cruz when he tries to limit government with the powers at the disposal of Congress.

  188. NYCmike says:

    “Now NYC is ok with how McCain voted.”

    -I have no power over how these politicians vote.

    I do ask that they vote as they campaign.

    I guess all you want is the power, without the responsibility.

  189. Bitterlaw says:

    I do ask that they vote as they campaign.

    McCain said repeal AND replace. Last week’s bill did neither. Therefore, he voted as he campaigned.

  190. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – The issue is that you pretend that Cruz did not showboat because you agreed with the showboating that he did. You are mad at McCain because you do not agree with the showboating that he did.

  191. Bitterlaw says:

  194. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    I don’t understand how/why you say that Cruz is a showboat.

    He campaigns for the same things he would vote for.

    He said he would filibuster, then he filibustered.

    How was he showboating?

    If the rest of Congress had followed his lead, and used the House to defund Obamacare, maybe things would have been different.

    Of course, we will never know.

  195. NYCmike says:

    If McCain had told them early in the day he was a “NAY” vote, maybe the bill gets altered, maybe the bill gets dropped, or maybe the media would have asked him “WHY a NAY vote?” and even you would have seen what a shallow, incompetent Senator he is.

  196. NYCmike says:

    Cruz could explain all his actions with conservative-type reasons.

    McCain would just mug for the camera.

  197. Tina says:

    Maybe, mccain, at a minimum, could have told little mitchie. He did not. He preferred to go onto the senate floor, and do the thumbs down in dramatic fashion,

    Then dance with schumah,

  198. Tina says:

    Judge Napolitano: He was arrested for some financial crime. That’s the tip of the iceberg. The real crime against him was that he had contact, he had access to emails of every member of Congress and he sold what he found in there. What did he sell and to whom did he sell it. That’s what the FBI wants to know. This may be a very, very serious national security investigation.

    “Nearly all of those blocked in Kansas were eligible U.S. citizens who simply lacked ready access to passports, birth certificates and other documents, as at least 5 percent of Americans do. Disproportionately, those lacking such documents are minorities and younger voters — groups that tend to back Democrats.”

  217. Robbie says:

    I think it can be some of both.

    Scaramucci had no business in the job he was given and his firing will add to the idea the White House is in chaos.

    That said, I take it as a positive sign Kelly was able to can this moron on the first day. At least for now, it indicates he really does have authority to act as a real Chief of Staff.

    In light of all that’s happened lately, this has to be a positive.

  218. NYCmike says:

    “We need to all vote for Democrats to stop Trump!”

    -Yes, let’s keep Trump from writing legislation……since Robbie, Diogenes, and Charles thinks he is in charge of Congress as well.

  219. NYCmike says:

    Considering that someone like Bannon was supposed to be out 2 EO’s ago, yet he is still there, these are events not getting too worked up about.

    – He’s still there….for now.

    I do marvel at the way you can ignore the burning house staring you right in the face though.

    It reminds me of this.

    -Just to clarify, 99% of “all that’s happened lately”, if asked by those man-on-street interviews, would not be remembered by 99% of the voting public.

    – Trump’s fallen below 40% in Rasmussen of all polls. His disapproval rating is touching 60% now. Clearly, people are aware of the bizarro world that Trump is overseeing in the White House. Scarmucci’s vulgar interview broke through. Everyone seemed to know about it.

  227. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    176. “He is a “Jack” Mormom(Liberal) like Harry Reid and the Udall’s”

    The term “Jack Mormon” is archaic. It is not used much now, and disliked by the Mormon Church. Like any religion, the level of activity of Mormons in their faith varies. It almost never becomes a factor in voting for a candidates in Utah or other areas of the Mountain West.

    -I can honestly say that I have little regard for opinion polls when it comes to Trump, as they were consistently shown to be a bad mark of what was to come.

    – If you want to crap on the state polling in 2016, go right ahead. When it came to national polls, they were basically on the mark. They accurately predicted the outcome of the national vote.

  233. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump fires people faster than George Steinbrenner did.

    NYC should like that one.

  234. NYCmike says:

    ” They accurately predicted the outcome of the national vote.”

    -And that meant……they were wrong?

    Isn’t that right?

  235. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    242. I don’t have a great regard for opinion polls either, as they often reflect bias methodologies. However, trends in polls are important. Rasmussen has usually had Trump in the mid-40% range. Recently his numbers have been falling, and for the first time he is below 40%.

    Also know many Trump supporters who are expressing reservations about his presidency now. Believe his support has declined in recent months, and he needs to address the problems with his presidency, and do it now.

  236. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    That was funny. Ironic as well.

    The best times as a Yankee fan was when Steinbrenner got suspended, and Gene Michael was able to run the organization, which was the precursor to all of the World Series victories in the 1990’s.

    George was not able to trade away the young players for aging ballplayers past their prime.

  237. NYCmike says:

    San Diego,

    My issue with those polls is this: not enough people are paying attention, and also, some of the low marks, despite Robbie’s opinion to the contrary, is because Congress has done NOTHING.

  238. Bitterlaw says:

    I thought it was funny that he used to fire and rehire Billy Martin.

    244. “When it came to national polls, they were basically on the mark. They accurately predicted the outcome of the national vote.”

    The polls projected a Hillary Clinton electoral college win. They were based on polling in many states that proved to be way off.

    Clinton won the popular vote because of California. Clinton’s results in other states was in many cases much lower than the polls predicted.

    249. “San Diego, My issue with those polls is this: not enough people are paying attention, and also, some of the low marks, despite Robbie’s opinion to the contrary, is because Congress has done NOTHING.”

    NYMIke, I agree with you, it is early and a president trying to change the direction of a country often finds his poll numbers falling early in his term. It happened to Reagan.

    At this point, believe there is a good possibility Trump could even get re-elected, mainly because the Democrats present a worse alternative.

  246. NYCmike says:

    Robbie defends the media, Democrats, and polls with little to no meaning more than he defends a President from his “own” party.

  247. Jonesy says:

    Robbie had Hillary winning Utah. What else is their to say?

  248. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    256. Jonesy, we all have Robbie figured out. lol

    213. Wrong Messy. Trafalgar is the most Republican pollster their is, and they were the ones that predicted Trump would win Michigan and Pennsylvania the day before the vote.

    When is Robbie going to admit that, when Gillespie wins in Virginia?

  252. Chicon says:

    263 – agree. Too much can change before election day, in either direction. If the dopes in Congress can pass a tax cut bill – and that results in a solid economy – today’s polls are irrelevant, imo.

    This is too much with trump. Hope Kelly fixes it all

  254. NYCmike says:

  255. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    We now have a solid economy, which is beginning to boom. Its one of the things I like about Trump. Can you imagine the amount of new regulations that the Democrats would be enacting now if they were in power?

    Trump, in his crazy way, is running interference for the economy, by preventing the Democrats from regulating it to death. It perhaps makes watching the circus bearable.

    Nevertheless, have to say overall I feel that Trump’s economic policies are much better than Hillary’s would have been for the nation, so will be critical of Trump and associates when they act like crazy people. But overall at this point would vote to re-elect him over a Democrat, whose policies could bring economy ruin.

    “Trump hammered this point home at this morning’s press conference following the swearing-in of John Kelly, the former general and homeland security secretary, as his chief of staff. “I think we’ve done very well,” Trump said. “Stock market’s the highest it’s ever been, unemployment lowest in 17 years … business spirit is the highest it’s ever been, according to polls” (that last point is standard Trumpian hyperbole, but it is true that the NFIB business confidence index is higher than at any point since the Great Recession). He could have added that low-income wages are rising and quarterly economic growth just clocked in at a solid 2.6 percent.”

    This is what matters. Someone involved in business now doesn’t have to wake up each morning and check what the new Obama regulation du jour is. (of course according to the Democrats you need to check under you bed each morning to see if a Russian is there).

    Obama was criticized for golfing to much; maybe Trump should be for not going golfing enough.

    Rehnquist was confirmed to that position in 1986 and didn’t relinquish the seat until his death in September 2005.

  286. Wes says:

    Wain, McConnell doesn’t want Moore to win because Moore is a fringe csndidate much like former Governor Fob James who under the right circumstances can actually lose to a Democrat.

    Seriously Moore was absolutely obsessed with his 10 Commandments display and made a fool of himself by trying to keep it up after multiple orders to move it.

    The man would be a disastrous candidate, and the ALGOP needs to steer as far clear of him as possible.

  287. Wes says:

    Actually, Mikey, Dick the Misogynist Bastard Mourdock was only nominated rather than elected in 2012.

    He lost by a fairly comfortable 44-50 margin after saying God intends rape to result from pregnancy. (I noticed you quit trying to tell me he didn’t say that after I did the grammatical deconstruction of his words.)

    Ouch reminded me of the sopranos. Not food for an official wh position.

    I am sure he is bright though,

  300. Wes says:

    Robbie is right.

    Bork would have had nearly no chance of becoming Chief Justice had the Senate Dems not stymied his congirmation in 1987. The most likely scenario is that he would have retired circa 2005 so GWB could appoint his replacement. Barring that, Bork would have died in 2012, thus leaving a vacancy for Obama to fill.

    Although Anthony Kennedy is frequently a gadfly with his erratic rulings, in a rather perverse way he’s s blessing as his elevation to the Court in 1988 kept Obama from getting the possible confirmation thst would have occurred had Bork been a Justice at the time of his death.

  301. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #311
    Yes he does!

  302. Wes says:

    Rosendale won approximately 54-46 last year, GPO. He seems to have nothing disqualifying him from winning. I’d say the race leans toward Tester with Zinke snd Fox out, but Rosendale is a solid B lister. If Rosendale can raise his profile and highlight how out of touch Tester is with Montana, he can win.

    As it stands, the Senator starts as a slight favorite, but let’s not forget Tester himself was largely unknown when he beat John Morrison in the 2006 primary. There are worse positions for a Republican to be in than Rosendale experiences at the moment.

    Very Slight Lean D Hold at the moment with potenyial to become a Tossup.

  303. Tina says:

    It is best to chose somebody relatively younger for the court than somebody older.

  304. Wes says:

    One interesting thing in Montana is the rightward shift of Indian voters–the Native American variety–toward the GOP last year. Tester won in part in 2006 because Brian Schweitzer heavily organized the reservstions. Trump and Republicans in general, however, did quite well among Indians last year for unclear reasons. If Rosendale can attract Indian votes as Republicans did last year, then Tester has a much harder time for reelection.

  305. Gpo says:

    Agree Tina – I can’t say I ever heard of him before six months ago but David Stras for SCOTUS – 43 yrs old

  320. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    From Bloomberg:

    “John Kelly arrives at the White House facing the Herculean task of restoring order to a crisis-ridden presidency, and he’ll have one advantage former chief of staff Reince Priebus never did: the backing of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

    President Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law, senior advisers with unfettered access to the Oval Office, supported Kelly’s selection as chief of staff after losing confidence in Priebus, said an administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Trump’s advisers and supporters are guardedly optimistic that the retired Marine Corps general can rein in a West Wing full of competing personalities who regularly sidestepped Priebus.

    Kelly has been promised full authority over the president’s staff, according to two senior White House officials, who requested anonymity to discuss internal personnel matters. Still, it’s unclear how that will play out within a White House where many of Trump’s aides have grown accustomed to free and easy access to the president. Lacking support from Trump, Priebus was unable to combat the infighting, unauthorized leaks and lack of message discipline that have thus far stalled the president’s agenda and frustrated Republicans in Congress.”

  322. NYCmike says:

    “Actually, Mikey, Dick the Misogynist Bastard Mourdock was only nominated rather than elected in 2012.”

    -Wes,

    Mourdock was a state-wide elected official prior to his run for Senate.

    As for his remarks, he made an error. He is NOT a misogynist.

  323. Tina says:

    Daivid Maritoko and other reporters indicate or suggest that spicer may recomsider his decision.
    Fwiw.

  324. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    As I have repeated since Kelly’s appointment was announced: “Kelly and Kushner are running the shown now.” I should have added both Kushners are running it.

    A marine general does not tolerate indiscipline — play by the team’s rules or you are gone. Trump is likely at the point he now realizes he needs to delegate power to his new chief of staff. Expect the leaks to end.

    Bannon may be next on the chopping block.

  325. JC says:

    In 2012, Heidi Heitkamp defeated Republican Rick Berg by a razor thin 0.9% (2,900 votes). That would have been the difference between Repeal being passed a few days ago. 2,900 votes.

    In 2016, Ayotte lost by an even thinner margin… 0.2% (1,017 votes).

    1,000 votes, would have made all the difference. 1,000 votes, to determine the fate of an entire nation.

  326. Wes says:

    I don’t disagree, Sheeple. On the other hand, I have to factor the positives and negatives of each candidate potentially in a race in making my assessments. You make good points, but they’re not the whole story. Thus, factoring everything I consider to be a reasonable aspect of the race in, I conclude Tester is the slight favorite at the moment. That may change. I hope it will, but until that time, I see no viable reason to change my ranking.

    If it makes you feel any better, I have McCaskill as Likely R Pickup and Brown as Lean R Pickup.

  327. Tina says:

    Breaking

    Oer go, kac under consideration for comm director.

  328. Tina says:

    Sdc, trump indicates thatt he wants kelly to enforce discipline. If this is true, this is a good, positive sign

  329. Wes says:

    No, Mikey. Mourdock is a misogynist. He explicitly said God intends rape to cause pregnancy. That is a clearly, unforgivably misogynistic viewpoint.

    As for your statement about his being a statewide elected official before his Senate run, I’m aware he was State Treasurer at the time. That in no way negates my point that in 2012, Mourdock was only nominated to office but not elected. He was elected State Treasurer in 2010. He didn’t seek that office in 2012 as it wouldn’t open up again till 2014, by which time he had resigned from office.

    Bannon may be next on the chopping block.
    ————————

    If Bannon is contributing to the leaking in any way, then he needs to be canned too. I like the guy; he understands better than anyone where the real fight is taking place for our nation (not left vs right, but against the entrenched establishment). Still, if he’s engaged in leaking in any way, then he’s not helping and needs to be let go.

    That’s a big if though. To me Bannon just seems to smart to get caught up in that (but what do I know). Anyway, the truth in the matter is that it hasn’t just been the swamp creatures in the state dept that’s been leaking, but also some of the ‘Trumpist’ people too. For the last 6 months there has been a power struggle in the WH between the establishment and populist wings of the administration. And that needs to end.

  331. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    342. “Sdc, trump indicates thatt he wants kelly to enforce discipline. If this is true, this is a good, positive sign.”

    Agree. In fact this might be a turning point.

    Unfortunately, Trump never appointed anyone with actual White House experience to his staff. They have been groping around trying to figure things out over the last six months. Finally could be getting their act together.

  332. NYCmike says:

    My statement that he was a “state-wide elected official” is correct.

    And, NO, he is not a misogynist.

  333. NYCmike says:

    “That is a clearly, unforgivably misogynistic viewpoint.”

    -This is a viewpoint you disagree with.

  334. Wes says:

    Barletta–who ousted Kanjorski in 2010 by a decisive 10-point margin–is now officially challenging Casey for PA-Sen.

    I rank this as Lean D Hold.

  335. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    345. We will see it. It is good to have someone like Bannon there as a voice in the White House, so that Trump is hearing different viewpoints. Kelly may be able to bring order to the situation. Just good that someone with a firm hand is now in charge.

  336. Wes says:

    So you agree God intends pregnancy to result from rape, Mikey. That says nothing good about you.

  337. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #340- Wes
    And your thoughts about the 2018 Senate races in ND,PA,FL,WI and IN?

  338. Tina says:

    Kelly did a great job with border enforcement

    70 percent reduction with no wall. Whether he is for or against the wall is moot because is not the President.

  339. Tina says:

    Bamnon has kept his nose down and works on whatever he is given. Trump told him to work it out with kuschner and they have done it. Perhaps that was overblown.

    I doubt bannon is going anywhere.

  340. Trump says:

    It’s an interesting question.

    What does God intend to result from rape?

    Or from any sin, for that matter?

  341. Wes says:

    I’ll just post my rankings for all upcoming Senate races, Sheeple.

  342. Tina says:

    I widh that spicer could take comm director position in the first place. This before ouch and his leak to liza minelli or that drat reporter.

  343. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – You can list Empty Suit Casey as a Solid D Hold.

    Democrats in PA are angry and embarrassed that Trump won the state. They will turn out. Trump’s voters will not turn out with the same enthusiasm for Barletta. 7-10 point win for Casey.

  344. Wes says:

    Well, Bitter, if at any time, I feel Solid D Hold is justified, I’ll rank PA-Sen that way. Till that time, I’ll keep my rating as I have it.

  345. JC says:

    I don’t see MT as being lean D. Maybe tossup at best for democrats. Tester only received 48% of the vote there during a presidential year that Obama won handily. And that was with a Libertarian candidate (Dan Cox) running as a ‘real MT conservative’ soaking up 6.6% of the vote.

    In fact, Tester has never received 50% in either of his senate runs. Even in the pro-democrat wave of 2006 he barely scraped by with a less than 1% win (49.16 – 48.29).

    IMO, Tester struck luck twice. He would have been defeated in 2012 had a high profile right-leaning libertarian not run. As long as we get a solid recruit, I think we’ll take this seat.

  346. Bitterlaw says:

    Ok, Wes. I forgot that you spend more time in Pennsylvania than I do.

  347. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Meanwhile, CBS News, in its desire to be fair and engage in fierce investigative reporting of all politicians, answered this gripping question about Obama.

    “things you still don’t know about Barack Obama
    Just how many almonds does he really eat, anyway?”

  348. Bitterlaw says:

    Well? How many almonds does he eat? Don’t leave us hanging.

  349. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – You made a prediction. I also made one. While I have nothing but complete contempt for your personal life, I respect most of your political analysis. We will see how it turns out in 2018. GFY and cream soda.

  350. Tina says:

    Drats always seem to recruit a third oarty spoiler wannabe?

    Ususally a libertarian.

  351. Wes says:

    Using uour own ststemdny, Bitter, I can’t put the race where uou want because if I expect one candidate to win by 7-8%, then by definition the other candidate is within striking distance and has some chance of winning no matter how remote–thus making the race lean or likely rather than solid.

  352. Jonesy says:

    Wes, you are welcome relief after another of deadens insanity with Robbie Rodham. Thanks for the insight.

  353. Wes says:

    We both predicted Casey would win, Bitter. We just disagreed on the likelihood. If Casey wins next year, then we can both say we called it.

  354. Wes says:

    I meant to say “Using your own statemrnt” in 366. I don’t know how I so horribly mangled my words.

  355. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    363. “Well? How many almonds does he eat? Don’t leave us hanging.”

    For some reason, I got distracted and did not open the article.

  356. Tina says:

    How many almonds did he pay for?

  357. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t know how I so horribly mangled my words.

    It was easier than trying to crack Tina’s code of nicknames and typos.

  358. Michael says:

    Steve Bannon sucks his own

  359. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    If the comment was about Trump, CBS would have asked how many almonds it would take for Trump to choke.

  360. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    @LindseyGrahamSC on Gen. Kelly’s new role: “The Marines have landed in the White House & they’ve got a beachhead & I hope they can hold it”

  361. Tina says:

    It was easier than trying to crack Tina’s code of nicknames and typos.

    Or easier for you to defend mcamnesty for his flip flop.

  362. Teena says:

    djlkadf sld fdu obumble sjlkd flub zxzfd

  363. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “These comments partially echo the White House’s messaging. Deputy Assistant to the President Sebastian Gorka said in a interview with Phoenix radio station KTAR News shortly after Kelly was sworn in this morning that the “The White House will function like a well-oiled Marine unit.”

    Yes, but the leader at the top has his quirks.

    Two marines should assigned to be on each side of Trump at all times, whenever he reaches for his device to tweet, they should knock it out of his hand and say “Sir, you cannot do that. Orders of General Kelly.”

  364. Tina says:

    I woukd add

  365. Tina says:

    Well rinse prubus was weak, Kelly is not. It is a big time upgrade.

  366. Teena says:

    I need a nickname for Kelly. Anyone? Killer Kock Kelly?

  367. Tina says:

    Eesup htiw erom And still.

  368. JC says:

    Scott Adams predicted that as we go into the third phase of Trump’s presidency (from he’s Hitler – to he’s incompetent – to he’s effect, but I don’t like it), that people will begin to claim that Kelly is the shadow president making all of the decisions and that Trump is just a figure head.

    That man is a predictive savant.

  369. Teena says:

    I love Kock Kelly. Kick them in the Kock! Obumbler Flub

  370. Tina says:

    I love Kock

    Save it for reddit.

  371. Teena says:

    Kock Kelly is my sexy hero.

  372. Tina says:

    No,, it is obama.

  373. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    383. “claim that Kelly is the shadow president making all of the decisions and that Trump is just a figure head.”

    Kelly and the Kushners.

  374. NYCmike says:

    “That man is a predictive savant.”

    -Was that his new post?

    Dilbert has been right on the money the last yer or so!

  375. NYCmike says:

    “So you agree God intends pregnancy to result from rape, Mikey. That says nothing good about you.”

    -Mr. Vito spoke to this issue much better than I could, Wes.

    Of course, you ignored what he said.

    The simple fact is that some people believe GOD has a plan for each person, and that pregnancy thru rape may happen, and that person will have to handle it in the best way they can.

    Some people have given birth to a child, who then went on to lead a productive life. From EVIL, GOOD emerged, showing itself as stronger.

    In other cases, EVIL would win, and a baby’s life would be taken prematurely, aborted before it was given a chance.

    YOU would snuff out the LIFE OF A CHILD, judging by the words you describe Mourdock with.

  376. Bitterlaw says:

    I am not Teena.

  377. NYCmike says:

    I will THANK my Mom for that opinion, by the way.

    She argued with my sisters when they were becoming teenagers, always asking them “Why take out your anger on a child?”.

    I’ll gladly deal with Mourdock’s way of thinking as opposed to SNUFFING OUT THE LIFE OF AN INNOCENT CHILD, as WES would conveniently do.

  378. Tina says:

    I went through policy 3.111 and 3.112. You shall not oost anything about him anymore, ny

  379. NYCmike says:

    Tina,

    Very sorry.

    What does “oost” mean?

    Oh, ‘POST”, MAYBE?

    GOOD NIGHT, AND CARRY ON!

    If not, I hope Tina has a lovely evening.

    That is 2.111.

    I will send you some limoncello homemade. I think you need to calm yourself.

  383. Bitterlaw says:

    Here is today’s cheerful thought. Someday, I will die. I thought about how. I want to go. A heart attack or stroke doesn’t leave time to say goodbye. I think cancer might be good. You can fight it – unlike diabetes. If I die, I have time to get ready. I would like it to be soon enough so my wife can remarry. My only wish is that a softball tournament is named for me with all donations going to pediatric cancer charities.

  384. Bitterlaw says:

    Well, then I hope Tina has a lovely evening.

  385. Tina says:

    Cream soda, bl, have a nice evening.

  386. JC says:

    Bitter, have you ever seen anyone die of cancer?

    It’s one of the worst ways you can go. Whatever time you’re told you have left, you live in absolute fear and terror (no matter how hard you try not to). You know you’re on a time limit. You begin to lose basic bodily functions like bowl control and can no longer take care of yourself. You’re in constant, agonizing pain, which is only slightly relieved when you’re drugged up beyond coherency. Someone, likely a loved one, has to put their life on hold to take care of you, and watch as you slowly disintegrate. Everyday, either by the cancer or drugs you’re taking, you begin to lose your cognitive abilities, until eventually you sometimes forget even your own name.

    It is far, far better, and less painful (physically and emotionally) to go out quick.

  387. PresidentPaul! says:

    Late stage democratic socialism.

  390. Bitterlaw says:

    JC – I have seen people die from cancer. I watched my mother take her last breath. Dying sucks no after how you do it. There are worse ways to go – drowning, burning, bleeding to death, and ALS come to mind. The cancer patients I saw all fell into a coma in the last day and stopped breathing. Not bad. Besides, everybody praises you for a brave battle. I want the softball tournament. Diabetes is not enough to earn one.

  391. Bitterlaw says:

    I have been on a 35 year death spiral as a diabetic. Pain and shame on a daily basis. I do not fear death at all. Given a choice at 14 between diabetes and cancer, I would have taken cancer. Cancer can sometimes be beaten. Diabetes is not curable despite whatever study lisab is sure to post. I have lost track of all the impending cures predicted over 35 years.

  392. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    There are Some people who seem to appreciate Trump:

    “And Trump is the most effective president, perhaps in U.S. history.

    In a short six months, with little to no help from Congress, this president has managed to cut illegal immigration by 70 percent by the force of sheer will, catapult the stock market to all-time highs, open pipelines and create more than 1 million private-sector jobs, set virtually every economic indicator at an all-time high, change the Supreme Court back to reason for generations, and more.”

    Perhaps the fact that leftists go apoplectic at the mere mention of his name indicates that Trump is accomplishing something. Driving those type of people bonkers is in and of itself is an achievement.

  393. JC says:

    @SanDiegoCitizen

    And all this while fighting off a bipartisan coup attempt and constant, unending media slander and hysteria.

  394. Wes says:

    All right. I’m just going to say I found 390 quite disturbing in what Mike said and leave it at that.

    If Mike genuinely believes in a God whose “plan for each person” may include rape fot some, then that underscores exactly why I have no interest in believing in Mike’s God.

    It also makes me wish Dick Mourdock had lost by a bigger margin.

    You are honestly one sick, callous individual, NYCmike, and I really have no further interest in discussing this issue.

    I will thank you though for illustrating to me exactly why I both became pro choice in my thinking and withdrew from religion. People like you are honestly appalling.

  395. JC says:

    Wes,

    One of my life long friends is the result of his mom being date raped. He now lives a happily married life, has two little girls, and has been serving in the Army for 9 years.

    Great things can come out of tragedy.

  396. Bitterlaw says:

    I believe in God. I also believe in free will. I do not believe that God has a plan for anybody. If God had a plan, there would be no free will.

    I also do not care if people believe in God or gods or no higher power. People generally suck independent of any outside power.

  397. messy says:

    390, 412. The question about all this is: Were those non-christians killed during the Boxing Day Tsunami of 2004 sent to Hell for all eternity?

    If God has a plan for everyone, then that would be the case.

  398. Jonesy says:

    Very Well said Bitter, as a Believer myself.

  399. Jonesy says:

    408. True SD. could you imagine the things done right now, if the GOP actually wanted to help Trump?

  400. Jonesy says:

    From Don Willett Twitter:

    “My daughter has discovered the “Titanic” theme song & I now long for the Atlantic’s deathly embrace.”

  408. NYCmike says:

    “The current justices on the U.S. Supreme Court all went to Harvard or Yale. They are mainly products of an elite establishment, whether of the left or right. Willett comes from different stock. He was adopted and raised in a double-wide trailer in the small town of Talty, in northeast Texas, by a single mom who scratched together a living waiting tables. His adopted father died when he was 6, leaving no will but providing Willett with a nascent sense of “the law’s power to impact lives.” Willett started working in his teens as a drummer and a professional bull rider. “I really wanted to be a calf roper,” he says, “but there’s no way we could afford a horse with cow-handling know-how.””

    November 8, 2016 at 7:18 pm

    ….
    Lord Ashcroft….

    Pennsylvania Clinton +5, …Michigan Clinton +5, Wisconsin Clinton +6, N.Carolina Clinton +2, Ohio tie, Florida Clinton +2”

  430. Phil says:

    The Wheeler lawsuit is pretty small potatoes compared to what is brewing with this Pakistan IT thing. Wow. Talk about something that stinks to high heaven.

    Of course count on the boys and girls at CNN, the Washington Post, the major networks to work like hell to ignore it which they are presently doing — UNlLESS THEY CAN TIE IT TO TRUMP. If that were to happen imagine the 180 on coverage!

    Naw, no bias out there – just solid journalism by our friends in the MSM.

  431. Trump says:

    Voices in the cretin’s head:

    “Robbie says:
    November 8 at 8:12 pm

    Plenty of speculation that Blount is in big trouble.”

  432. Robbie says:

    Trump says:

    – Hey, look. Soccer moron is doing what NYCMike did a few months ago.

    I posted the exit polls as they came out when various states closed on election night. Deal with it. They were news.

    One thing I am certain of though is this. Had the exit polls been favorable to Trump on election night, no one would have had a problem with them. In fact, they would have been celebrated here.

  433. Trump says:

    Fu ck off, cretin.

    You are a lying piece of crap who keeps posting your garbage fantasies and getting slapped by real events.

  434. Trump says:

    How’s that Jared testimony coming along, dimwit cretin?

  435. Trump says:

    Cretin, you know, and everyone knows, that if exit polls were favorable to Trump, you would not post them.

    You are an absolute garbage of a human being.

  436. Trump says:

    What time did you disappear on election night, as$wipe cretin Robbie?

  437. Bitterlaw says:

    You are an absolute garbage of a human being.

    This sentence was posted by out self-proclaimed master of the English language. Think about that.

  438. President John Kerry says:

    I love exit polls.

  439. Trump says:

    Absolutely true, moron.

  440. Trump says:

    Takes one to know one.

  441. Bitterlaw says:

    You are an absolute garbage of a human being.

    Poster Trump could have written:

    You are absolute garbage.

    You are absolute human garbage.

    Instead, he chose the least articulate way to convey the idea that Robbie is garbage.

  442. Bitterlaw says:

    Takes one to know one.

    You rarely see this level of argument after fourth grade. Perhaps we will be treated to the “I’m rubber. You’re glue.” argument later.

  443. Trump says:

    I secretly am infatuated with Robbie. He completes me.

  444. Robbie says:

    Soccer moron is not having a good day.

  445. Robbie says:

    Why in the world was Sean Spicer involved in this stupid story?

    Fortunately, he’s going to be gone from the White House soon, but what terrible decision.

    Tom Namako?
    @TomNamako 6m
    6 minutes ago

    Spicer at 5/16 briefing re: Seth Rich Fox News piece: “I’m not aware of that”

    Spicer today: I had a meeting about the article before it ran

  446. Trump says:

    I always have great day, cretin Robbie.

    Your life is a mess.

  447. NYCmike says:

    “One thing I am certain of though is this. Had the exit polls been favorable to Trump on election night, no one would have had a problem with them. In fact, they would have been celebrated here.”

    -I have told you this before:

    B*LLSH*T!

    Exit polls are for the media to set up a narrative.

    They should not be used by HHR.

    Only people like you were looking for them, instead of waiting for hard numbers.

    You could NOT wait to spread the bad news!

  448. Wes says:

    Rape is no big thing to NYCMike and his good buddy, Dick the Misogynist Bastard Mourdock so long as in the evnt of a resulting pregnancy, the woman has no option for abortion.

    Well, let me tell you something, you sonofabitch. I tend to avoid mentioning this because of the painful memory though I think I told MFG about it a few years ago:

    This topic is not esoteric for me because I actually had to live with it when my ex-wife got pregnant by a rape. She didn’t know what to do, but the dilemma was taken out of her hands when she miscarried.

    See, this isn’t some kind of abstract discussion because I watched someone deal with it.

    You and Dick Mourdock can go f uck yourselves, and if you were ever to say to me in person what you’ve said on this blog on this issue, then when you woke up in the hospital, I’d be sure I was right there to explain why you’d be eating out of a straw for six weeks, you stupid asswipe.

  449. Jonesy says:

    451. Robbie also predicted Blunt would lose in MO?

    As bad as Utah for Hillary

  450. NYCmike says:

    “Waiting for NYCMike (and others) to mention stories like these.”

    -It came out today, give me some time.

    Investigate that claim to the fullest extent needed to prove or disprove. I have no problem with that.

    String FoxNews up by the b*lls if they did something illegal.

    Either way, find out who murdered that kid.

  451. Trump says:

    I colluded with Fox News and tried to get the Seth Rich story out!!! All while calling the others Fake News. LOL.

  452. Bitterlaw says:

    So Poster Trump not pretends to be President Trump. The downward spiral picks up speed.

  453. Trump says:

    Hey moron, you do have comprehension problems.

    472 is not me, idiot. You do realize that there is a fake fake trump here?

    Go see some specialist.

  454. Trump says:

    I think there is the original fake Trump, a fake fake trump, and then occasionally a fake fake fake Trump.

  455. Bitterlaw says:

    Both Fake Trump and Fake Fake Trump post as Trump and essentially post the same things. That is not a “comprehension problem.”

    Contact the Wizard. GFY.

  456. Jonesy says:

    Right Mike, Robbie acts is if he is a political expert here, but then falls for the bogus exit polls once again.

    You would think these Never Trump dimwits like Robbie Deadender, would have learned from the bogus exit polls of 2004.

  457. Trump says:

    I would, if Incared, as$hole.

    Who do I contact for your stupidity?

  458. Robbie says:

    As bad as Utah for Hillary

    – Wrong again, Trump’s court jester.

  459. Trump says:

    Trump has a court, cretin Robbie.

    And, how about that Jared testimony, moron?

  460. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    August 1, 2017 at 11:43 am
    Right Mike, Robbie acts is if he is a political expert here, but then falls for the bogus exit polls once again.
    You would think these Never Trump dimwits like Robbie Deadender, would have learned from the bogus exit polls of 2004.

    – Since you, Trump’s court jester, just showed up a couple of months ago, we have no way to know how you you felt about the exit polls from 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014 which were on the mark.

    My guess is you would have been singing their praises on election night in 2014.

  461. Robbie says:

    Donald Trump could shoot Jonesy, his court jester, in the middle of 5th Avenue and Jonesy would apologize to Trump for giving Trump a reason to shoot him.

  462. Trump says:

    Well, trump surely kicked you in the groin on nov 8, didn’t he, cretin Robbie?

    How long were you out?

  463. Jonesy says:

    481. Good Catholic Robbie, was making crude sexual posts towards me yesterday, and now wants me shot.

    Is Wobbles having a meltdown?

  464. Jonesy says:

    If Lisab has time, maybe she could track down some of Robbie’s greatest hits of election Day 2016 here at HHR.

    You know before he started taking medication

  465. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump should post at BeJohnGalt. He would love it there. IP 727 loves references to gay s3x.

    Filter is blocking s e x

  466. Robbie says:

    Trump says:
    August 1, 2017 at 11:45 am
    Trump has a court, cretin Robbie.
    And, how about that Jared testimony, moron?

    – I’ve made it most of the way through the last three comment sections and I can’t find a single time I mentioned Kushner’s testimony.

    I did mention the Judiciary committee wanted to hold hearings with Donnie Jr. and Manafort though.

    Robbie says:
    July 19, 2017 at 6:09 pm
    Clear your schedules. Don Jr. and Paul Manafort will appear in open session before the Judiciary committee on July 26.

  467. Robbie says:

    Is Wobbles having a meltdown?

    – Sadly, its’ the way the game’s being played here now. I’ve just got to readjust.

    I remember back in 2004, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 when this kind of stuff didn’t happen here.

    Where were you then?

  468. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    August 1, 2017 at 12:01 pm
    If Lisab has time, maybe she could track down some of Robbie’s greatest hits of election Day 2016 here at HHR.
    You know before he started taking medication

    – I’d like to track down your previous views, but you didn’t show up here until June Yet, you act as though you’ve been a long time participant here.

  469. Bitterlaw says:

    Soccer Moron/Trump predicted that Trump would lose. Remember that when he tries to be an expert here.

  470. Bitterlaw says:

    Soccer moron/Trump was also predicting devastating losses for the GOP in 2016.

  471. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    I am very sorry your wife was raped, and had to deal with such an awful situation and the lingering emotional scars. Hopefully, the person was brought to justice, and somewhere in that she found solace.

    As for your painful memories, I hope you can deal with them. I will ask for extra prayers be said for you, that you can overcome that pain, as well as find understanding in your heart for people to believe in different ways, and for you NOT to mock or ridicule those who think differently than you do.

  472. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    I believe you mentioned Kushner’s emails, and then Tina made an error about them not being available, or some such thing.

    Of course, NOTHING happened with them anyway, so I did not commit the comment to memory, as it was just one more in a long line of NOTHING BURGERS served up by you.

  473. Jonesy says:

    488. Let’s get Robbie a Medal, for being a long time poster at a Regional Political board.

    Robbie the only reason you are here, is that you were kicked off the real conservative sites.

  474. NYCmike says:

    Oh, Wes, as for your crude name you called me, I am NOT a “sonofabitch”.

    I am the son of two wonderful people who made a commitment BEFORE GOD to marry, and then they raised children to think “What would GOD/Jesus/Holy Spirit Do?”.

    Most of us (their kids) are far from perfect, as humans tend to be, but we also acknowledge that my Mom, who would counsel a woman to have a baby that was conceived in violent, unwanted sin, so that GOOD could come from EVIL, has been the most successful in trying to live a life as GOD intended.

  475. Jonesy says:

    Bitter, agreed that many missed 2016, but like yourself, most accepted the Trump win and want him to push the Republican agenda. Trump poster is one of those also.

    Deadend Robbie is different. He wants to burn down Rome(The GOP), due to immature hatred of Trump.
    Similar to Adulterer John McCain

  476. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump poster is one of those also.

    Trump is a troll who adds nothing here. He does not advocate for any agenda. He just insults people and blasts Republicans. Seriously, Jonesy. You don’t see that?

  477. Bitterlaw says:

    Poster Trump has also said that he is not a Democrat or Republican and is just trolling us. Do not be so desperate for support that you align yourself with him. There are plenty of pro-President Trump posters here. Poster trump is not one of them.

  478. Jonesy says:

    496. No different from Robbie, Bitter. Do you see that? He also is not using the R word anymore either.

    Robbie is 24/7 anti GOP Garbage, who posts nasty sexual innuendo.

  479. Jonesy says:

    More importantly Bitter, I am glad you are a believer.

  480. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:

    488. Let’s get Robbie a Medal, for being a long time poster at a Regional Political board.
    Robbie the only reason you are here, is that you were kicked off the real conservative sites.

    – Umm, this is the only political site where I have posted in a comment section. But thanks for playing.

  481. Robbie says:

    Robbie,
    I believe you mentioned Kushner’s emails, and then Tina made an error about them not being available, or some such thing.
    Of course, NOTHING happened with them anyway, so I did not commit the comment to memory, as it was just one more in a long line of NOTHING BURGERS served up by you.

    – If you’re talking about the Don Jr. email about getting dirt on Hillary, I think it’s a little early to say nothing came from it. That’s unless you have some insight from Robert Mueller’s investigation I don’t have.

  482. Bitterlaw says:

    Jonesy – I’m a Catholic married to a Jewish woman. I won’t get many points as a “believer” from our Evangelicals, DW and SoHope. I am happy for you being strong in your faith.

  483. Robbie says:

    Deadend Robbie is different. He wants to burn down Rome(The GOP), due to immature hatred of Trump.
    Similar to Adulterer John McCain

    – This shows what an uninformed moron you are. The idea I, based on my 13 year comment history here, want to burn down the Party is the most fantastically stupid thing you’ve ever posted.

    For the last six years or so, I have been arguing against the moronic Tea Party candidates who have kept Republicans from winning Senate seats (Angle, COD, Buck, Mourdock, Akin, and the menagerie of weirdos who ran in 2014).

    And by the way, nice cheap shot at McCain. You’re quite a guy. Maybe you and Kelli Ward can hook up on Tinder.

  484. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    August 1, 2017 at 12:39 pm
    496. No different from Robbie, Bitter. Do you see that? He also is not using the R word anymore either.
    Robbie is 24/7 anti GOP Garbage, who posts nasty sexual innuendo.

    – I’ve been here since 2004 supporting the Republican Party and battling the Tea Party dead enders who have kept Republicans from winning at least 5 more seats than they currently have.

    You showed up two months ago to spew Trump love.

  485. Trump says:

    Now the stupid cretin Robbie is pivoting to mueller investigation, now that his fantasy of Jared testimony died.

    That’s the next pivot in your insane hate, cretin?

  486. Bitterlaw says:

    Robbie has been here since 2004. He is a Republican. Unlike Poster-Trump. He was anti-Romney in 2012 and anti-Trump in 2016. He has supported other Republicans in other races since he began posting.

    I reject the idea that being opposed to President Trump makes somebody anti-Republican or anti-Conservative for one reason – President Trump is not a Republican or Conservative.

  487. Bitterlaw says:

    I have argued with Robbie over many issues since we began posting here. Since MD left, I do not know if anybody has posted here longer than we have. Maybe Corey but he is spotty at best now.

  488. Trump says:

    The moron still harping about Trump and the republican label.

    Morons like you made that argument for 2 years. Voters told you to go fu ck yourself.

    Anyone with two brain cells knows that the only requirement for being a republican is registering as a republican.

    But that would take two brain cells.

  489. Bitterlaw says:

    Are you ready to own your prediction that Trump would lose and take the GOP down with him? You made it. Why not own it?

  490. Trump says:

    Meanwhile, in the real world,

    Stocks soar more.

    Cruising to reelection.

  491. Trump says:

    and then the stupid idiot brags about the longevity of his stupidity.

  492. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump takes credit for President Trump when he supported President Trump losing the election.

  493. Trump says:

    Since he is triggering you and stupid morons like you every day, what’s not to like?

  494. Trump says:

    While exposing the GOP as the liars they are.

    Two-fer.

    And kicking losers like Rubio, Jeb, Hillary, and Christie to the cirb.

    Trifecta.

  495. NYCmike says:

    http://thehill.com/policy/defense/344689-dod-concerned-by-turkey-purchase-of-russian-air-defense-system

    -Robbie,

    Still concerned about Trump not mentioning NATO Article 5?

    Maybe you should worry about the Islamist leader of Turkey, who should NOT be trusted by the United States.

  496. NYCmike says:

    “problem solvers caucus” = socialists WIN again.

    Government NEVER downsizes on its own. Strong, principled women and men MUST demand it stops growing, and force it to limit itself.

  497. janz says:

    Listening to Sarah Sander’s press briefing. When comparing recollections of reporters’ questions to the prior administration’s spokesperson, the tone and narrative agenda of reporters has changed from being sheep-like to rabid dogs!

  498. janz says:

    Big government tends to have staying power, growing bigger by the freebies it gives people. An addiction of dependency, between citizens and progressive collectivism, is difficult to break. Crisis or collapse seem to be frequently the only antidote that works.

  499. Waingro says:

    #514, ha, gotta love that “Trump” hates Christie when he was one of the biggest reasons Trump was able to secure the nomination.

  500. NYCmike says:

    “Christie when he was one of the biggest reasons”

    -One of..??

    Have another bowl of nachos!

  501. Waingro says:

    #520, yeah, to be clear, I would put Christie Cremes as the #1 reason thanks to his kamakazi destruction of Rubio for his master, Trump, in the last NH debate.

  502. Waingro says:

    “Have another bowl of nachos!”

    On that note, how impressive was it that Cremes was able to maintain hold of those nachos when confronting that Cubs fan? That takes skills!

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DGF-5l3WsAAXIPu.jpg:large

  503. Trump says:

    Who said I hate Christie?

    I said “losers like …Christie…”. That Christie is a loser is a proven fact.

    Don’t act like stupid bitter.

  504. Trump says:

    Do you forget that Trump was leading nh polls before the debate weekend?

  505. Waingro says:

    #523, ha, agreed then.

  506. Trump says:

    The last poll in NH GOP primaries that anyone but Trump led was Suffolk 6/18-6/22, when Bush led by 3. Remember that this was 2-3 days after Trump announced his candidacy.

    From the next poll onwards, nbc Marist 7/14-21, trump led every poll.

    76 straight polls in a row. 69 of the. By double digits.

    So, no, Christie and Rubio, and any one else, were immaterial in New Hampshire.

  507. Waingro says:

    #524, he was but Rubio was closing fast. Trump’s momentum had also been stymied a bit after the Iowa caucuses.

  508. Waingro says:

    #526, I believe Trump would still have won, but Rubio may well have finished with a strong 2nd and momentum for SC. Plus his disappointing showing in NH emboldened others like Kasich and JEB! to stay in much longer to prevent any anti-Trump coalescing.

  509. Wes says:

    JEB!?

    ::facepalm::

    What an utter disaster of a candidate. At least Trump saved us from a third Bush presidency.

  510. Waingro says:

    #529, uh oh, I feel a triggering about to occur!

  511. messy says:

    529. “At least drowning saved us from being burned to death!!!!’ Sheesh!

  512. Bitterlaw says:

    The filter will not let me post the story about Pete Rose. This is the end of the Hall of Fame talk. Good.

    Rose thought that she was 16 (the age of consent). He was 34 at the time. That is just wrong. Maybe not illegal but wrong. Of course, she was not 16. Pete may have been good at gambling but he could not count to 16.

    The Phillies have cancelled the Wall of Fame event.

  513. Waingro says:

    #532, Bitter have the Phils officially canceled? Getting mixed reports on that.

  514. Redmen4ever says:

    Looks like we have the Republican version of “What happened.” The simple answer is Trump stole the nomination and then stole the election. On the GOP side, Trump won with a strong, but less than 50 percent plurality against a divided field. In the general election, Trump stole the election in the second debate. He had no business even showing up. But there he was, putting it to Hillary Clinton and Martha Raddittz, and that red sweater guy. Yeah, it was rough, but you know they never had it so good. And that includes Anderson Cooper.

  515. Bitterlaw says:

    Wain – I heard one radio report that it was cancelled. I heard another that there was no decision yet. They are going to face a huge backlash if they go forward.

    Rose is a dirtbag.

  516. Waingro says:

    “Rose is a dirtbag.”

    Yes. He is the scum of the Earth. Phillies would have to be insane to not cancel.

  517. Jonesy says:

    Wray confirmed as FBI director by Senate, also Judge New some confirmed to 11th circuit of appeals.

    Even trumps biggest critics say he is doing great job on the judges

  519. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    @realDonaldTrump

    “Only the Fake News Media and Trump enemies want me to stop using Social Media (110 million people). Only way for me to get the truth out!”

    Its time for Trump to stop pussy-footing around, and answer the really tough questions. How many almonds do you eat? Obama evaded this question — so its time for Trump to come clean.

    362.“things you still don’t know about Barack Obama Just how many almonds does he really eat, anyway?”

    The second question is, how many of the almonds came from Russia?

  520. Bitterlaw says:

    Jonesy – Sex with teens is inexcusable. Ruth and Mantle did not do that as far as we know.

  521. janz says:

    Some good news today being that McCabe can now be relieved from duty, as Wray was approved today to head the FBI. I certainly hope he is less politically inclined than his predecessor, Comey.

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/08/01/how-wisconsin-lured-foxconns-massive-manufacturing-plant/

    -Walker went BOLD, success followed.

    Too bad lessons were NOT learned by the usual suspects.

  523. janz says:

    It’s still worth noting that by August Obama had 206 people approved and settled in their given positions, while Trump has a mere 55, with 84 vettd and waiting in the wings for the Dems to move on in the approval process.

  524. janz says:

    NYC, I believe the initial overtures and encouragement was made by Trump. Walker, Ryan were all part of the WI teamwork participating in making the trial balloons of commerce became real.

    – Tina has been here since 2004 and I think mnw as well. I don’t remember Jason until 2008 or so, but he can better say when he joined the discussion than I can.

    – I agree. Had Rubio not had a bad debate, I believe he’d have finished a strong second in NH and probably gone on to win the nomination. It’s all speculation, but that’s my view. Christie’s mauling of Rubio and subsequent endorsement of Trump, in retrospect, sealed the deal for Trump.

  528. NYCmike says:

    janz,

    That mainly tells me that Republicans were still acting like normal people, as if the times had not changed at all.

  529. Robbie says:

    I also think NYCMike was around these parts in 2004.

    Is that right, NYCMike?

  530. Tina says:

    Wain, are you blaming rubio for his poor debate? Christie naiked him fairly. Rubio was ill prepared to debate.

    I hope he takes it as a learning experience.

  531. Tina says:

    Yeah, mccabe is as good as gone. 3 investigations.

    They need to drain the h beast defenders.

    Any muh russian news? Day 6 and the emdia has dropped it like the plague.

  532. NYCmike says:

    I believe so, if just sporadically. I remember, at that time, there was also Polipundit, Jay Cost’s blog, and one other one that died out shortly after 2004.

    I did not comment much until 2008 or so, when I had to lend a hand to my “deadender” buddies.

  533. Tina says:

    Nyc mike, did you always go by that handle. I came here in 2004. I am angry that my favorite attorney forgot me as being a long time poster.

  534. Tina says:

    Uh ih, ben rhodes oerson of interest in unmasking.

    Circa news, sara carter.

    As soon as #Russiagate became #Ukrainegate and #Awangate, the #Media suddenly became MUCH less interested…

    Bill mitchell tweet.

  536. Tina says:

    Is seymour hersch credible? Seems like he has some news on seth rich and wikileaks.

  537. janz says:

    Tina, in today’s presser with Sarah, the media was still scratching around to form redundant Russia questions, keeping the issue alive.

    Back to the 89 nominees waiting in the que to be approved are some 30 judicial nominations – most of which have been critiqued as outstanding.

  538. janz says:

    Seymour Hirsch did amazing, highly praised Vietnam reporting, earning a Pulitzer, I believe.

    I believe so, if just sporadically. I remember, at that time, there was also Polipundit, Jay Cost’s blog, and one other one that died out shortly after 2004.

    – I had forgotten all about Polipundit!

    Nyc mike, did you always go by that handle. I came here in 2004. I am angry that my favorite attorney forgot me as being a long time poster.

    I have rescinded the cream soda and the home made limomcello,

    – There was someone named MikeKS.

  541. Bitterlaw says:

    Sorry, Tina. I tend to remember the postersI fought with more than the agreeable ones. Kramer, KeyBored, and Aaron in Texascome to mind.

    NYC sometimes was known as Bronxie. He was always trying to push egg cremes on us.

  542. Bitterlaw says:

    Kwame. Not Kramer.

  543. Bitterlaw says:

    Tommy Boy loved Palin but I don’t know if he went all the way back to 2004.

    GoDUKE!!! was an all-time favorite.

  544. Tina says:

    Mikeks is feom kansas, he came back here briefly, i do seem to recall nymike somewhere, prolly at polipundit, but i seldom posted there. I did like the reports from knighhawk, not sure where knighawk is at.

  545. Tina says:

    Janz, the r senate is ineffective. 89 just sitting?

  546. News You Can Use says:

    not sure where knighawk is at.

    BJG

  547. Tina says:

    Janz, sarah is an upgrade over spicer. I wish spicer woukd have transferred to comm director.

  548. Tina says:

    Mike came back here before the last election.

  549. Bitterlaw says:

    Knighthawk was last seen at BeJohnGalt as far as I know. Eph still posts there. I P 7 2 7 does, too.

    Knova Red is probably dead or supporting serial killers somewhere.

  550. Bitterlaw says:

    IP is still banned by the filter.

  551. Phil says:

    Senator Al Franken on Colbert tonight
    Tune in. It ought to be a good one.

  552. NYCmike says:

    Always as NYCmike….as far as I recall (I sound like a politician).

  553. NYCmike says:

    I enjoyed Knighthawk as well, although he lost it a bit at the end…..was like a double-secret spy type, acting one way and then ridiculing posters he was nice to while at a different site, or some such silliness.

  554. NYCmike says:

    Cheers.

  555. Bitterlaw says:

    HHR had a few racists/ bigots:

    I P

    mnw

    LaZebra

    Jason T/JT

    NYC will deny they were since they never filled out I am Racist forms

  556. Cash Cow TM says:

    This morning we hand picked 100 pounds of green beans.

    Walt’s son Chris could not get the big automated bean picker to get fully operational.

    This afternoon we attended a staged shooting of a WI public TV shooting where the TV host was cooking and serving a meal to about 20 or so northern WI farmers, families and residents (and Walt and Mrs. Walt. It will air sometime in Oct. or Nov. Lots of closeups at the table where Walt and Mrs. Walt were being served and eating and drinking mead.

    The host Inga was serving a tomato appetizer and a meal cooked in a big milk can.

    Walt said he will sign autographs.

  557. MikeP says:

    I always wished I was more confident in my typing ability , I would have commented more often. I too started on polipundit, then moved her with rest. Collapse of polipundit was sad to watch. I am still lurkering daily. I need to comment more often.

  558. Bitterlaw says:

    MikeP – Jump in. Nobody is graded here on typing. Tina’s posts are like scrabble before you make words. Trump’s just types variations of “You are a cretin, moron.” We have a cow posting here.

  559. Trump says:

    Mikep,

    Bitter moron and cretin Robbie have set the bar so low that you will seem a genius by comparison.

  560. Jonesy says:

    Bitter, another Appeals Court Judge was confirmed yesterday. Including Gorsuch, that is 5 Trump Judges confirmed.

    Even with a Dem Senate in 2009, Obama did not confirm Judge in his first 6 months of Office.

    McConnell has a done great job with this

  561. Jonesy says:

    578. Mnw a racist? the Missouri Guy. I never saw that.Seems pretty smart

  562. Bitterlaw says:

    mnw used to refer to the country being invaded by “wetbacks.” His term. He never backed away from it.

  563. Jonesy says:

    Dems are really screwed on Judges, if the GOP holds on to the Senate as expected in 2018.

  564. Jonesy says:

    Many GOP Women in my area, held their noses to vote for Trump, for one reason. Judges!!

  565. Bitterlaw says:

    Jonesy – Good to hear about the judges. The only reason that I decided to not leave the ballot for President blank and voted for Trump was the issue of judicial appointments.

  566. Bitterlaw says:

    Go back to the archives for 2015. I hated Trump then and hate him now. He is better than Hillary bit that’s about it.

    I do not like the fact that there was such instability in the White House that the talent of General Kelly was taken from Homeland Security to babysit staffers. I guess that terrorism and border security are easier to solve that White House staff issues.

  567. Trump says:

    How did the country survive without the DHS?

  568. Bitterlaw says:

    Go visit the graves of the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks and ask whether DHS is needed. There are 11 graves in my hometown. I suggest that you not ask the families of the fire fighters buried there. You will be in a grave if you do.

  569. Bitterlaw says:

    Actually, the body of one firefighter could not be recovered. His grave is empty. GFY, Trump Guru.

  570. Trump says:

    Fu ck off, sanctimonious prick.

    The intelligence agencies and political leadership enabled 9/11.

    So to cover their as$es, they created another ineffective bureaucracy.

    No wonder an government apologist like you loves it.

  571. NYCmike says:

    Not sure if DHS could have stopped. 9/11. The cooperation of different departments which should have been in place already may have.

  572. Bitterlaw says:

    The intelligence agencies and political leadership enabled 9/11.

    Was it an “inside job?” You are crazy enough to go down that trail.

  573. Bitterlaw says:

    Fu ck off, sanctimonious prick.

    Always good to hit a nerve so early in the morning.

  574. NYCmike says:

    Judicial appointments – Jason, Wes, MD, “CG”, Author, Robbie, Walt, etc don’t worry about silly things like that.

  575. Trump says:

    One set of inefficient and ineffective bureaucracies failed, so naturally, we have to have another one.

    Always the answer of corrupt politicians.

  576. Tina says:

    Jonesy, ok kudos to mitchie on that.

  577. NYCmike says:

    Diamond Jim?

  578. NYCmike says:

    Dang it Tina!

  579. Tina says:

    Az fraud dlake we t off reservation. I hope his book does not do well, he should focus on his re eelection,

    With his policy positions, he sounds like he is more comfortable with obama,

  580. Tina says:

    May have to do policy 4.111 if fraud flake is primaried.

  581. Trump says:

    This level of sub human brain is dangerous

  582. Tina says:

    So, some senate rs are working with drats on fixing obamacare. Great, we get screwed again, anything with drats will be worse than the house or senate bills.

  583. Jonesy says:

    Wes cares about judges Mike. He always says how important the senate is for that.

    Right on Robbie though. He wanted Hillary to pick judges

  584. Jonesy says:

    Tina, no go on anything that keeps the ocare taxes

  585. Jonesy says:

    Tina, crazy thin about flake. Unlike swinger McCain, Flake has voted our way so far

  586. Bitterlaw says:

    With his policy positions, he sounds like he is more comfortable with obama,

    If Arizona is so conservative, why does it keep sending McCain and Flake bake to the Senate? Could it be that they represent the will of a majority of Arizona’s voters?

  587. Tina says:

    Day 7, i came here in the am, to read the fake news about muh russian. For 7 days nothing from the fake news poster?

  588. Tina says:

    He should focus on reelection and not selling a book claiming that he is conservative, when he is not.

  589. Bitterlaw says:

    If you are tired of the Dun-Dunn-Dunnn link, this one is pretty interesting.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLtHo30s1hw

  590. Tina says:

    If he is primaried, look for him to run as an i die or try to meddle in some way.

    Az has better picks than mccain or flake.

  591. Tina says:

    I think congress cannot wait to close up shop.

    They have the dl increase and a cr to pass.

  592. Tina says:

    Mueller hads a 16th liar tied to obama,, eric holder.

    Nothing to see here, however.

  593. Bitterlaw says:

    Az has better picks than mccain or flake.

    The Arizona voters don’t agree.

  594. Tina says:

    Maybe they will next time, bl.

    Maybe they wont either.

  595. Tina says:

    Gingrich pass tax cuts or get piglosi.

  596. Bitterlaw says:

    Their choice, Tina. Not yours or mine.

    If somebody better than Flake can win the General Election, fine. If not, I hope Flake wins the primary and GE.

  597. Phil says:

    619

    Newt is absolutely correct. TAX CUTS OR PELOSI.

    If I Were Trump and I didn’t want to be impeached I would be pushing the tax relief. The base is not coming out in 2018 unless Republicans in congress get this done. Do nothing and you get a Democratic majority and with that an impeachment vote. Very doubtful votes in senate to remove, but his administration will be finished as far as getting anything done.

    Trouble is there is a quarter of the congressional Republicans who quietly would be fine with impeachment. They hate Trump just as much as Democrats. Unlike Democrats a lot of Republicans in congress are just fine with being in congress – being in the majority? Not crucial.

  598. Phil says:

    Establishment Republicans hate Trump. That is the bottom line. Would happily like to see Trump gone or weakened and will quietly do what they can do to help Democrats see that happen.

  599. Tina says:

    Phil, they are just not doing anything, the tax cut bill, which should have been the first agenda item (i think we can all agree on that), shoukd be next up. They need to move given the failure of the hc bill.

  600. Tina says:

    All lies.

    This is hurting us in polling numbers.

  602. messy says:

    Wes cares about judges Mike. He always says how important the senate is for that.
    Right on Robbie though. He wanted Hillary to pick judges

    – The lying liar continues to lie.

  604. Bitterlaw says:

    Robbie did not want Hillary or Trump to win. Despite what Jason thought, one of them had to win.

  605. Trump says:

    The dem water carrier cretin Robbie does not like being pointed out as dem water carrier cretin.

  606. Robbie says:

    A CNN story suggests Tom Cotton is under consideration for DHS. I sure hope this isn’t true. He needs to stay in the Senate. His power in the Senate will be far greater than it ever would be at DHS.

  607. Bitterlaw says:

    If true (I said IF), why would Trump take an effective conservative Senator out of the Senate? There must be somebody better suited to the DHS position that does not hurt the GOP in the Senate.

  608. Trump says:

    Dem water carrier cretin propagating CNN water.

    How surprising!!

  609. Trump says:

    Maybe cotton wants to do something, anything, than jerking if in the do nothing senate.

  610. NYCmike says:

    Cotton will be considered a “deadender” soon enough.

    He probably can’t stand 45 of his colleagues, from his own party.

  611. Bitterlaw says:

    As the originator of the term “Deadender” at HHR, I should sue all of you for copyright infringement. You have completely redefined it to the opposite of its meaning.

  612. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder if NYC agreed with my list of racist posters in 580.

  613. Bitterlaw says:

    He probably can’t stand 45 of his colleagues, from his own party.

    Maybe he can hang out with Ted Cruz. Wait. Nobody can stand Ted Cruz.

  614. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    “Racists” is thrown around too easily. I don’t know any of those people personally.

    My Dad has used the N-word through the years. He has also employed, worked with, worked for, socialized with, invited to his house, been to their house, etc people who happened to be black.

    My Dad has used the word “kike”, “wetback”, “chink”, “guinea”, “whop”, “dago”, “russkie”, “polock”, “shanty Irish”, etc, and has also worked with, for, employed, socialized, etc with people with backgrounds that may be offended by those terms.

    He is NOT a racist. He does use words that are offensive.

    GFY, you fake-catholic, “shanty-Irish” shyster.

  615. NYCmike says:

    ” Nobody can stand Ted Cruz.”

    -Except Texas voters.

  616. NYCmike says:

    ” You have completely redefined it to the opposite of its meaning.”

    -Speak to the people who used it for anyone who wants limited government.

    Top Dem Recruit for NY-21 drops out.

  618. Jonesy says:

    627. Robbie and the rest of the Juvenile Never Trumpers, try to tell us they did not vote For Hillary. Of course they did not vote for the GOP Nominee either.

    So in theory Robbie voted for Hillary to pick Judges.

  619. Bitterlaw says:

    I knew that you would defend them, NYC.

  620. Jonesy says:

    630. More Fake News From Robbie Rodham.

    Take down that Don Lemon poster wobbles.

  621. Bitterlaw says:

    My dad is 90. I do not know what he said when he was younger but he certainly does not use the terms you listed now.

    Morning Consult is a joke, now wonder Robbie Loves them. They blew the GA-6 and the Montana race now they give us this Pravda crap.

    Sampled 15% more Dems to get a +7 Dem Generic Ballot

  634. Robbie says:

    Bloomberg reports Rick Perry is under consideration to be Homeland Security Secretary. That makes quite a bit of sense. he has good experience dealing with the border from his time as Texas governor.

    – There’s a lot going on in this nutty comment from Jonesy. First, I don’t love Morning Consult and I have no idea where you got that idea. Second, I’m pretty sure Morning Consult did not poll the GA6 or Montana House races. If they did, I never saw them posted here or anywhere else.

    Your penchant to lash out an lie is really something, even for HHR.

  636. Jonesy says:

    660. You need help Robbie. Your retweets of Morning consults are legendary here.

    GOP insiders say Handel will lose, Gianforte has GOP in panic etc…

    Hillary still loves your vote though

  637. Tina says:

    Not perry, he said no wall.

    He is more aligned with team uni on border enforcement.

  638. Tina says:

    His position appears to have evolved.

    He seems to be in line with loon beck and cruz position, the pass out teddy bears at the border.

    Maybe not quite, act of love category, but not strong.

  643. Tina says:

    Pussees.

  656. Bitterlaw says:

    I like sanctions on Russia. I don’t care why they were imposed. Russia is not a friend of the US.

    NYC or Jonesy to list 203 other countries that are not friendly to the US and ask if we should have sanctions on them, too.

  657. Tina says:

    Well, nk was sanctioned by that bill.

    It does not prove colkusion. Incomplete evidence on that.

    Hillary still loves your vote though

    – You’re the one who needs help and lots of it. You’re projecting your frustration and anger on me and it’s not healthy.

    I know you’re upset Trump’s presidency is floundering right now (38% today in Rasmussen), but that’s not my fault.

    I do like your slight of hand on GA6 and Montana though. You shifted from “Morning Consult blew it on those races” even though they never polled on them to just complaining about stories on those races you didn’t like.

  659. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – I did not say it proves collusion. I just like sanctioning the Russians.

  660. Tina says:

    And some senators want a shooting war with russia.

  661. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina and Robbie have a good feud going but it is not yet worthy of the Hall of Fame. It does not rise to the level of these battles:

    MD-Chekote

    Bitterlaw-Maxwell

    Bitterlaw – I P

    Jason – the poster who called him La Raza Pimp

    Author – Everybody at HHR by the time he left (he is now a twitter buddy with MD)

    NYC-Wes is getting pretty good.

    Wes-Bitterlaw is a classic but needs new material.

    Others?

  662. Bitterlaw says:

    I do not want a war with Russia. It would not be fair. Russia would get stomped.

  663. Robbie says:

    If you had “Trump gets into a dispute with the Boy Scouts”, you win the pool!

    Boy Scout leaders deny they called Trump and told him his speech was the best ever delivered to the jamboree.

    https://apnews.com/aedbaf4543ea464dbcef78491ba281b9

  664. Robbie says:

    A new Q poll has been posted. Since it has a history of being unfavorable to Republicans, I’ll refrain from posting the numbers. That said, Trump’s approval is closer to the 20’s than it is the 40’s.

    Polling usually lags events by about a week and I think the coming round of data will confirm the last three weeks, especially last week, were a real low point for Trump.

    I think Kelly is going to have a favorable impact on trump, but it may not begin to show itself in the polling until Labor day or so.

  665. NYCmike says:

    “I knew that you would defend them, NYC.”

    -I knew that you could NOT show proof that they WERE ACTUALLY RACISTS.

  666. Bitterlaw says:

    “invaded by wetbacks” is not racism?

    I P ranted non-stop about how blacks and Hispanics (and gays) were ruining the country.

    LaZebra was an anti-Mormon bigot (you must have forgotten his fear that if Romney was elected that Mormons would start recruiting teens to their cult – his word)

    Jason T/JT used to post about the army of Black Panthers taking over polling places in Philadelphia. There were 2 – and there were almost no Republicans in that polling place.

    I have no idea what more you need to make a judgment.

  667. Bitterlaw says:

    I did not even bother trying to list all of D o n d e r o’s posts. if you had no issue with him then I don’t think a Klansman would even get to your high bar for racism.

  668. Chicon says:

    – Not for moment. I want to see tax reform and wrote back in March they should’ve started with it first.

    I don’t like Trump and that’s no secret. That said, I could easily be placated if he stopped with the stupidity.

    Right now, his cartwheeling from self inflicted crisis to self inflicted crisis is preventing us from getting to legislative victories.

    With a 38% approval rating, he’s got no leverage. Had his approval rating been 47% or higher, he could have cajoled the Senate to vote for repeal and replace.

  672. Tina says:

    In regards to the post about Tom Cotton, and in relation to being called a “deadender”.

    I went to see a customer earlier. On way back, Rush was on, speaking about a White House/Trump thing this morning.

    Trump was speaking about a new immigration proposal from Cotton and Perdue. They submitted the bill in FEBRUARY.

    It has not been brought up for debate, or vote, yet.

    Once the details are out, let’s see how many times Cotton is called a “deadender”.

    Of course, the bill sounds a lot like what a “common sense” immigration bill would sound like.

  675. Robbie says:

    The Cotton Perdue bill will be lucky to get 40 Republicans in its current form. Trump decided to mention it now, after months of sidelining it, because it will play well with the base. And oh by the way, this week’s polling shows the base is starting to crack. Coincidence?

  676. NYCmike says:

    “My dad is 90. I do not know what he said when he was younger but he certainly does not use the terms you listed now.”

    -My Dad is 86. He does not use these words anymore, but mainly because his work days are over, and he is a lot more mellow than he used to be.

    He does say that all of us youngsters should stop being so easily offended.

    I usually tell him “GFY, you old geezer!”. (j/k on this)

  677. NYCmike says:

    “The Cotton Perdue bill will be lucky to get 40 Republicans in its current form.”

    -Should I assume you disagree with the bill?

    Your reasons?

  679. NYCmike says:

    -I know plenty of Obama voters who are staunch advocates of border control. (YES, they simply looked the other way because Obama was their “Messiah”).

    They will like that proposal.

    – I don’t really have a strong view on it. I was just stating the political reality of the bill.

    I’m reminded of the quote on the Statue of Liberty which says “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”.

    National Review: The Cotton/Perdue Immigration Plan Is a Great Start

    http://www.nationalreview.com/article/450061/cotton-perdue-unveil-immigration-plan-emphasize-skills

    “One plausible estimate holds that just 6.5 percent of U.S. immigrants are given their green cards on the basis of economic merit. About 13 percent are admitted on the basis of employment more generally, but that system does not make particularly fine distinctions based on economic potential and bizarrely imposes a cap on each sending country.

    Far more common is family-based immigration. We don’t just let immigrants bring their spouses and minor children but also give preferences to siblings, parents, and adult children, enabling the phenomenon known as “chain migration.” We also give out 50,000 green cards each year (about 5 percent of the total) on the basis of diversity, meaning applicants are selected literally at random from countries that don’t provide “enough” immigrants through other categories. The new RAISE Act would take a sledgehammer to this system, dramatically reducing low-skilled immigration and revamping our system for skilled immigration. It would cut immigration by more than 40 percent immediately, and by half in a decade. (It would not affect temporary “nonimmigrant” visas such as the H-1B, which also need reform.)

  742. Wes says:

    Basically the RRH “Republicans” are declaring 2016 to be a wave Dem year with both Arizona Senate seats as well as Dean Heller falling to the Dems, giving Dems the Senate as well as the House.

    First-midterm waves are not the norm. Arthur, Harrison, Taft, Hoover, Truman, Clinton, and Obama had them. Lincoln, Grant, McKinley, Roosevelt, Wilson, Harding, Roosevelt, Eisenhower (despite losing both houses of Congress because of ridiculously narrow margins), Kennedy, Nixon, Carter, Reagan (despite a disappointing House result), GHWB, and GWB did not.

    Two of the last three Presidents before Trump had aberrant first-midterm waves working against them while GWB had an aberrant congressional gain for his party–only the fourth such occurrence in a century, the others being 1902, 1934, and 1962–thus signifying after three such elections defying the mean, Trump is more likely than not to have the usual first midterm of modest gains in Congress for the out-of-power party–although I still maintain Republicans have nowhere to go but up in the Senate after three disappointing to disastrous showings in the Class 1 seats.

    They focus strictly on Trump’s current low approvals as the reason bolstering their Cassandra impersonation. Well, Trump had low approvals last year all these skalds of doom predicted would crush GOP congressional candidates.

    The results were nowhere near the Ragnarok RRH was salivating over. Dems picked up six seats in the House–almost all because of court-ordered Dem gerrymanders–and two in the Senate–well shy of the seven they targeted.

    I know, I know. Trump is President, and Republicans didn’t pass the Obamacare repeal. On the other hand, Dems have eagerly embraced the same vitriolic rhetoric that reverberated against them in 2002 and 2004 while they have made no inroads thus far in the Trump voters who held them at bay last year.

    As such, I shake my head at the eager negativism spewed forth on that site and predict modest gains of between four and ten seats for the Dems in the House while I predict Republicans gain between two and four seats in the House.

    The economy–as ever the driving factor in seismic partisan shifts–simply isn’t going the way Dems need for a major victory next year. Until and unless that changes, I stand by my analysis as opposed to the reflexive predictions of GOP Gotterdammerung so readily posted on the web’s most depressing political site.

  743. Wes says:

    Ugh. Republicans gain between two and four Senate seats, not House.

  744. Robbie says:

    Uh oh. In a YouTube video, gorilla mindset and alt-right leader, Mike Cernovich says he is pivoting away from Donald Trump.

  745. Robbie says:

    Lost in the shuffle today, Josh Hawley announced he would form an exploratory committee to challenge McCaskill.

    There were some misses, but the 2018 roster is still a very strong list of Senate candidates. I still think Republicans should look for a better candidate in Ohio than Mandel, but that’s just me.

  746. JC says:

    Wes, I generally agree with your whole statement about 2018(which is surprising, since I always pegged you as a pessimist). But I think there’s one big caveat;

    “They focus strictly on Trump’s current low approvals as the reason bolstering their Cassandra impersonation. Well, Trump had low approvals last year all these skalds of doom predicted would crush GOP congressional candidates.”

    The big difference between then and now is that the base GOP voters still believed that the GOP would work to advance the party’s agenda. But after the health care debacle, that may be in serious doubt. After all, this single issue has been the driving force behind GOP victories for 7 years; repealing Obamacare has become the party’s mantra.

    And to see them fail at it, with many senators blatantly reversing their positions that they campaigned on and even voted on… I think there’s a serious risk of losing significant base voter support, which would obviously be disastrous for the GOP. And not only that, but to see this defining issue fail at the hands of a jealous, vindictive, former presidential candidate – base voters might start asking; why bother? After all, the GOP basically made false promises to their voters on a core issue, and that’s going to have a bad effect on morale. Just look at the recent polls – Trump dropped about 5 percent nationally, almost all of it from losing Republican support. I don’t think that’s Trump’s base turning, but rather the general base of the party as a whole. I’ll bet the entire party saw a similar drop in support nationwide.

    Now with that said, I think that there’s plenty of time to right the ship. First off all, base voters are the easiest group to regain back. If nothing else, opposition to the other side is usually enough. But Republicans need to do more than just rely on people not liking liberals.

    For one, Republicans need to pass Trump’s tax reform agenda. Not only will that be politically popular, but it will spur economic growth (just the belief that it will pass is causing a boom in the stock market). Frankly, that should have been the first issue Trump tackled instead of healthcare. Secondly, continue to dismantle Obamacare regulations piece by piece. I don’t know how much they can do so long as Mr. Maverick is there, but they at least need to make the appearance of trying to roll it back. Thirdly, pass Trump’s infrastructure plan or some modified version of it. Yes, I know it’s not exactly a conservative thing to do, but it’s extremely popular and might be the only thing that could get some bipartisan support. And of course, Trump needs to get his administration in order. The leaks, powerplays, and no message discipline needs to stop. Now, I do give Trump some sympathy because I know a lot of these state department leakers were Obama holdovers. But it’s been six months. The time for excuses is over. Fortunately, it seems like the WH is finally finding some resemblance of order with Kelly in charge.

    Republicans have a year and a half to enact their agenda. If they do, then they’ll do just fine in 2018, and may even gain more seats.

    If, however, the GOP fails to pass Trump’s tax and infrastructure plans, then the party will get massacred.

    Brokaw takes pulse of America

    “I just thought that this is picture postcard,” he explained. “I’ve kept it in my mind when I was coming here, and then I saw that Powell voted 70 percent for Trump. How do they feel now?”

    After asking that very question at the Skyline Cafe and the Park County Fair on Friday, Brokaw said he found the answers interesting.

    “There is some diminishment of the enthusiasm, but the people we saw at the county fair said it’s all our fault — the liberal media’s fault, not Trump’s.

    As he made the rounds, Brokaw said he was struck by the responses he received as to what weighs heavy on the minds of small-town Wyoming.

    “Nobody was saying to me [Friday], ‘Oh my God, what are we going to do about Reince Priebus?’” Brokaw said. “They’re not talking about that. They were talking about how it’s too damn dry out here and what’s going to happen with the solar eclipse. There are a lot of other things on their mind.”

    What was almost universally agreed upon by those he spoke to, however, was the role the media has played in the Trump narrative.

    “Mostly they blamed the press,” he said. “They told me, ‘You guys are too liberal, you don’t give him a chance.’ The country needs to hear the other point of view.”

    Wash examiner report

    Pompeo nsc.

    Mcmasters to afghanistan, gets his fourth star.

  772. Wes says:

    Did Al Qaeda attack us, Mikey? Did the Taliban protect Al Qaeda leadership after 9/11?

  773. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    Answer the question.

  774. NYCmike says:

    Our military handled the initial battles very well.

    BUT, as is always the case in Afghanistan, TIME has a way of reversing victories, or at least stalling them.

    Will you also blame this on Bush?

  775. Tina says:

    Time to get out.

    Not worth it.

  776. NYCmike says:

    One of the other objectives for Iraq, aside from removal of Saddam & WMD, was to have a secure base of operations, from which to deal with Iran, Syria, etc., as well as Afghanistan & Pakistan.

    Unfortunately, after Bush screwed up initially, but then rectified our victory there with Petraeus’ surge, Obama’s ideological decision to remove our troops opened the stage for ISIS and their ilk.

    Afghanistan, as it has for centuries, is reinforcing its reputation as the worst place for an occupying military force.

  777. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder if there are any wars that Tina would support. I used to think of her as being like this:

    She’s more like Bunu now.

  778. NYCmike says:

    Wes, of course, absolves Obama of all responsibility for that decision.

    BUT, I am still waiting for his opinion about Afghanistan, as he has yet to answer the initial question.

  779. NYCmike says:

    -More with Stephen Miller.

    The comments on other, more-left-leaning sites are fun to read.

  780. NYCmike says:

    https://pjmedia.com/video/the-white-house-press-briefing-just-went-completely-off-the-rails/

    -More with Stephen Miller.

    The comments on other, more-left-leaning sites are fun to read, but quite vicious.

  781. NYCmike says:

    Thought I was still writing…..oh well.

  782. NYCmike says:

    http://acecomments.mu.nu/?post=370968

    -Robbie to be here shortly to explain that Obama is no longer President, and the campaign is over, so we must move on.

  783. Tina says:

    Well bl, we have been there 14 years.

    What is there left to do.

    I know you are the mccain, goober wing of the party.

  784. Wes says:

    Mikey must have an IQ of -17. He can’t understand I did answer his question with the rhetoricals I posted in response.

  785. Wes says:

    Mikey calls a decision overwhelmingly supported by the American people–who had a clear choice in 2008 between a candidate wanting to continue in Iraq and one promising to get us out–“ideological.” I love the contempt Mikey expresses for Americans once they vote the opposite of the way he wants.

  786. Bitterlaw says:

    I lost my program. I forget who Goober is. Of course, if you acted like an adult and used real names it would be easier.

    You are not in the party so I don’t know how you can classify me. In 2016, my preferred candidates in order of preference were:

    1. Walker
    2. Christie
    3. Rubio
    4. Kasich
    5. Almost everybody else
    16. JEB!
    257 Trump

  787. JC says:

    1. Walker
    2. Christie
    3. Rubio
    4. Kasich
    —————

    So the goober wing of the party (with the exception of Walker, who would have lost).

  788. NYCmike says:

    Obama won with 53% of the electorate = “overwhelmingly supported”.

    Got it.

    Kind of like Trump “overwhelmingly” gave his political donations to Democrats (54% – 46%).

    Wes took math class with jason.

    I would love to hear what Wes thinks about a primary victory where one person gets 60% and the other gets 40%.

  789. NYCmike says:

    And, in that Presidential election, Wes, once again, stayed home.

  790. Bitterlaw says:

    JC does not like Rubio? Damn. Rubio will be devastated.

  791. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    The Afghan War is STILL GOING ON.

    Do you care about the soldiers who are being killed over there, for the war that you sent them off and approve of?

    Did you serve?

  792. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC still does not understand that somebody who claims to be a Republican can never be forgiven for donating money to Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer. Never.

  793. Tina says:

    If you acted like am adult, you will explain why we need to be there further. While we had to do afghanistan, it has been far too long. I said 14 years. Actually 16 years almost.

    You keep making stupid comment about nothing.

  794. Wes says:

    Of course I’d have a tad more respect for Mikey and his weird desire to turn the world into a real-life game of Risk had he actually put on a uniform while advocating sending other people to fight and die for his beliefs.

  795. Bitterlaw says:

    New Thread. Unfortunately, Bunu found it.

  796. Wes says:

    Mikey, according to Gallup, on the eve of the 2008 election, Americans opposed the Iraq War by a 58-39 margin. That’s a 19-point spread for math-challenged people like you. Would you not say that’s an overwhelmingly negative opinion on the war?

    I guess 58% of the American people must have been “ideological” under your skewed definition in 2008.

  797. Trump says:

    The moron bitter cannot forgive Trump.

    Trump will be devastated.

    Ha ha ha

    Basically, voters told morons like bitter to go f uck the high horse he rode in on.

  798. Waingro says:

    #137, thanks for the link to that thread, Bitter. That was during a time when I went on hiatus from following the election after Trump secured the nomination. So it is was fun to go back and see what some posters were saying at the time. The panic (and hyperbole) over Trump was definitely palpable!

    Sadly, it looks like many HHR regulars who I have enjoyed reading on here have never come back. Trump really took a toll on this site.
