Happy New Year’s Eve!

Now that we are about to head into the New Year, how about an informal prediction from everyone to see what their prediction for the outcome of the 2018 mid-term elections will be when all is said and done after November in terms of how many Republicans seats the party will hold in each house (with 218 being a majority in the House and 50 being enough for a majority in the US Senate). My prediction:

US House: 211 Republicans
US Senate: 50 Republicans

Final 2017 NFL picks one post down….

  1. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Pessimism to start the New Year! So which GOP’ers lose their Senate seats? Which Democrats lose theirs?

  2. Bitterlaw says:

    I will go the other way. Predictions:

    Claire McCaskill will once again defy the odds and be re-elected.

    In PA, Senator Empty Suit Casey and the Invisible Governor Wolf cruise to victory.

  3. Tgca says:

    House 224
    Senate 53

  4. jason says:

    GOP 53 seats
    House 228 seats

  5. jason says:

    Casey, because most PA voters think he is a moderate, wins.

    Wolf, who is trying to not to rock the boat, is probably not very popular with the moonbats. The Sierra Club and other greens are running ads against him claiming he is in bed with the energy companies.

    He probably hates the energy companies as much as the moonbats, but understands they provide a lot of jobs and revenue.

    He might win, but let’s see who the R is first before I give him another terms.

  6. Tgca says:

    Another frigid morning in south Florida. Barely 60 degrees here. The high is only going to be 73 today. This just ain’t right. It should be at least 80.

    I nearly froze to death last night and turned the ceiling fan off (the AC was asleep all day too) and threw another sheet on the bed because boxers and a tank tee were just not enough to keep warm.

    I nearly got frost bite when I took the dogs in the yard last night and it was like 56.

    Brghhhh!!!

  7. Tgca says:

    Drudge has article on Bitter’s blast and being like ice on NYE. Being a good Catholic, I forgive Bitter for his insensitivity during the holidays and any day actually. After all, he’s an A-hold and a lawyer so you can’t expect perfection.

  8. Cash Cow TM says:

    Minus 17.5 degrees here this morning.

    Quite nippy.

  9. jason says:

    A-hold?

    I don’t want to think of the alternative.

  10. jason says:

    I took the dogs in the yard last night and it was like 56.”

    I remember walking my dog when it was 56 in July.

  11. NYCmike says:

    Jason finally realizes what his “translations” actually look like!

  12. NYCmike says:

    Wind is howling like dogs….

  13. jason says:

    I guess Tgca gets the biggest pussy of the day award.

  14. jason says:

    Jason finally realizes what his “translations” actually look like!”

    Nah, I always knew they reflected the true and accurate spirit and intent of any post they referred to.

    But thanks for the compliment.

  15. Tgca says:

    13

    Yum.

  16. jason says:

    Cash Cow, on the other, gets the Macho Bovine award.

  17. Bitterlaw says:

    I guess Tgca gets the biggest pussy of the day award.

    So much irony in that statement.

  18. Bitterlaw says:

    It’s winter. It is supposed to be cold. Man up.

  19. Tgca says:

    WSJ predicting 75% chance La Niña arrives in 2018 and this will wreak havoc on the commodities market. This is why we need to build a wall sooner than later. We need to say NO to the uninvited and unwelcomed.

  20. Tgca says:

    I was manned up earlier. Now I may need to go to Lulumon and get some $125 spandex leggings to keep warm.

    …and winter in FL is supposed to be in the 80s and not 60s. Brghhhh!

  21. mnw says:

    I’m not going to predict this far out. Get back to me after the primaries.

    Here’s a prediction, though: RAS will have Trump at 50% JA at least once within the next 3 months— by March 31st.

  22. jason says:

    Just got an email from Rubio asking if “I could chip in before midnight”.

    I told him its too cold to play golf.

  23. Bitterlaw says:

    I just drafted an e-mail to my former boss asking him to not ruin any more lives by firing people. I have not sent it yet. Maybe I should just let it go.

  24. Bitterlaw says:

    Where is our resident psychologist, Corey. I am trying to find a diagnosis for my condition. I always expect the worst but that is probably just being Irish. My real problem is that I am obsessed with things that I cannot change – either physical conditions or events in the past. I never focus on the future where I can change an outcome but only on the past where I cannot change what happened.

    My wife’s useless advice is to learn to accept things that can’t be changed and move on. Typical female thinking.

  25. Tina says:

    Prediction.

    One or more jebots will continue to meltdown.

  26. Tina says:

    Bl, i thought you were ok with your old boss? Granted, not fair or anything. Vut why draft a lettee!

  27. Tina says:

    Prediction.

    After 18 months of investigation, they will finally figure out who paid for the dossier and why.

  28. Tina says:

    In todays news, her thighness, the jebots favorite candidate, is now all in for the iranian revolutiin. Back in 2009, she went mute. Then continued to bribe the mullahs.

  29. Tina says:

    David Martosko
    ?
    @dmartosko
    The central problem with the NYT’s Papadopoulos narrative: It assumes a 28-year-old with casual Russia connections via a third-rate professor had intelligence & situational awareness that was so much better than the CIA’s that it shocked the FBI into a counterintel investigation.

    And papadufus wore a wire.

  30. Tina says:

    Have mullah merkel or the euro weenies mentioned the iranian mater?

  31. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – I am not fine with him. He ruined my life. I hate change. I would be happy to make less money and pay more in taxes to work in the city than at a new job.

    I have panic attacks and have not slept well since I accepted the job. Unfortunately, the job market sucks for lawyers despite what Trump lovers say.

    I regret that I interviewed for the job but I had no choice. I can’t make my wife support me while I wait for who knows how long for something better.

  32. Bitterlaw says:

    What do people think Trump can do in Iran? Beyond saying, “Good luck, protesters,” there is nothing he can do. It would be like a foreign government cheering for Black Lives Matter or Antifa protests as far as results go.

  33. Tgca says:

    I don’t know many women that follow that advice but I guess it’s easier to dish out advice then practice it. Sometimes it’s therapeutic to write things out but I don’t know if sending it will do any good especially if he shares it with others. It might feel much better to burn down his house in this cold weather so he will freeze his butt off. Just a thought. 🙂

  34. Tina says:

    Ok, bl. I thought you were ok with taking the new job. Hopefully, you find something soon.

  35. Tina says:

    Something better soon*

  36. Bitterlaw says:

    Burning down his house is probably a bit much. I would feel bad for his dog being homeless.

  37. Tgca says:

    Bitter

    Why do you hate change? I like a good challenge. It does suck when you have limited options but who knows, you may like the new place and the people once you settle in. Make some new acquaintances. Give people an opportunity to learn you’re an A-hole. I think you’ll be fine after an adjustment period.

  38. Bitterlaw says:

    Thanks, Tina. I hate the new job and it does not start until next week. I already have nightmares about it. I keep hoping I get lucks and I break my right ankle so I can’t drive there. There is no public transportation to it.

    I will keep looking while I am there. After being tossed aside after 6 1/2 years at the prior firm, I realized that loyalty to any employer is for idiots.

  39. Bitterlaw says:

    Tgca – I hate change. I also think that the city is for real lawyers. Having a suburban office feels like a demotion even if I will still go to the same courts.

  40. Tina says:

    I woukd let it go, start the new job and see how it goes, and still look for something better.

    Happy New Year

  41. jason says:

    Hillary gets the Chutzpah Award of the Day.

    After supporting the Iran “deal” and helping Obama do nothing about the previous protests:

    “The Iranian people, especially the young, are protesting for the freedom and future they deserve. I hope their government responds peacefully and supports their hopes.”

  42. Tgca says:

    I don’t want to go into much here but I think it is inevitable that most will get screwed one time or another in their job over time. It rarely has to do with work but more politics. But for the most part, I’ve never regretted moving from one job to another in my career. So man up Bitter!!! You will adjust in due time.

    I know that having a blunt personality, I’ve made some past bosses uncomfortable. I think a bit of that has to do with their discomfort of me being a hunky gay dude. :-). I guess they expect a submissive delicate flower boy..

    Seriously though, men can feel awkward when dealing with something that is not normal to them. My previous bosses never asked me about my personal life. Ever! Other than my dogs maybe. They probably think I’m some wild dude when in actuality, I’m rather boring now and spend ost of my time reading, watching movies, hanging with the dogs, or conversing with great wonderful peeps like y’all at HHR.

  43. jason says:

    Bitter, man up for the new job or I will have to revoke Tgca’s award and give it to you.

    Let’s start the job and actually meet the people before we start hating it.

    And don’t sent the old boss any emails.

  44. Tgca says:

    Well, I’m rooting for you even if you’re an A-hole. I was betrayed twice in my career where I outperformed and worked like a dog for 70+ hour weeks to make my bosses look good and get kudos. Luckily, due to my skill set and mobility ability, I left once the betrayal set in. I’m not very forgiving to peeps who screw me over especially since I’m not a bottom. :-). I think that’s the attitude you’ll need to adopt to this change.

    I too learned the hard way that Corporate America doesn’t care squat about loyalty, no matter what they say.

  45. mnw says:

    BL

    Not much I can say but to wish you sincere good luck wherever you ultimately land.

    Like me, you seem to be prone to depression (just my observation, based on reading your posts for years). I suggest being alert to separating your objective problems from the “depression tendency”-supercharger.

    Hope that makes sense. I have nightmares, particularly when I take the pain medicine, but when I wake up… wait a minute! … things aren’t THAT bad, not objectively, they aren’t. I still have options & resources. Screw you, nightmare.

    Most of my nightmares involve LWOP, btw. Life Without Parole. A little practical joke my subconscious likes to play on me.

  46. Tgca says:

    Agreed. Don’t give him the satisfaction of turning it on you by sending him emails. I still think burning his house down was a good idea. Maybe I watch to many revenge flicks. Steak the dog 1st though.

  47. Tgca says:

    Steal the dog,not steak it. God! Never harm animals. They have feelings too.

  48. Tgca says:

    Ok. It’s now 63 so I’m gonna man up and brave this artic weather and take the dogs out side a bit.

  49. Bitterlaw says:

    mnw – You forget that I do not believe in depression. It is just weakness.

  50. mnw says:

    BL

    Call it macaroni, then. I still think it’s a good thing to be aware of, for the reason stated.

    (I did say tendency, btw, not the d-word itself.)

  51. Tgca says:

    Bull! Depression is a well scientifically proven chemical imbalance brought on by various external and internal stimuli similsr to other brain diseases. Some folks are more susceptible than others and depending on the severity, it can be self-controlled to an extent without medical treatment. A certain level of depression is normal in most people and passes with time but chronic and severe depression requires medical treatment.

  52. Bitterlaw says:

    Tg – Zzzzzzzzzz. If I have the same problems after I take a pill, why would I feel better? Problems that can’t be fixed can’t be fixed.

  53. Tgca says:

    Self awareness is important because often many folks do not realize they are suffering depression. Generally, these folks are not chronic or severely depressed but otherwise exhibit depression symptoms. Again, it is a normal experience for many to be depressed by different events in their lives. The fact they are able to cope with it or overcome such depression does not mean they were weak, it means they needed time and coping mechanisms.

    We would not say that someone reacting to pain from a broken bone is a weakness and that they should be able to ignore the broken bone because that would only exacerbate the injury to ignore it. The body has coping mechanisms for different types of pain, physical and emotional and some folks are wired differently in how they feel it. It’s the same with physical pain, some are structurally wired to cope with more physical pain than others due to thousands of years of evolution.

  54. Tgca says:

    You assume problems can’t be fixed but often they can. For those that can’t be fixed, medical treatment to cope or tolerate is an alternative. Would you say people with chronic asthma would not benefit from medication during an attack? Depression is a biological and chemical normal reaction to life events.

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    We disagree. A broken bone is verifiable. I think depression is weakness. Most people disagree because they don’t want to be seen as weak.

  56. Bitterlaw says:

    Tg – You are fabulous. I am not.

  57. Tgca says:

    Bitter

    If you’re going to refer to a gay man as FABULOUS, at least capitalize it. Otherwise, it doesn’t count. Geez! Don’t you know anything?

  58. lisab says:

    I’m rather boring now and spend ost of my time reading, watching movies, hanging with the dogs, or conversing with great wonderful peeps like y’all at HHR.
    ————————

    gay movies?

  59. Bitterlaw says:

    Sorry. Z SNAP.

  60. Tgca says:

    …and btw, diagnostic imaging can detect brain changes and chemical differences in people with depression just as an x-ray can diagnose a fractured bone. The difference is that one does not normally run around doing diagnostic images of their brain throughout the day to detect changes. A fracture appears as a static image while depression is variable due to body chemical changes.

  61. Bitterlaw says:

    My daughter keeps telling me that Top Gun is a gay movie. No way. It is a story of warriors bonding while killing commies. And playing volleyball.

  62. lisab says:

    Don’t give him the satisfaction of turning it on you by sending him emails.
    —————————————

    send him a great email thanking him for the 6.5 years allowing you to get the new job.

  63. lisab says:

    And playing volleyball.

    Happy Kwanzaa LisaB

    Yes, I sometimes watch gay movies. But most are very sophomoric and formulated so there are few that I would call awesome though generally I find foreign gay film better made…and for the record, I did not think Brokeback Mountain was the best movie ever or even worthy of an Oscar, though it was decent.

    I have many genres I enjoy. I like drama and historical period pieces. Just saw The Finest Hour, a movie about Churchill and really liked it.

    I also tend to watch nostalgic films (1930s and 1940s are my fav), foreign films, sci-fi,and action, depending on my mood. Sometimes I delve into mindless entertainment B movies, especially bad martial arts ones but I appreciate the physical art of movements in those movies

  65. Bitterlaw says:

    Brokeback Mountain was awful. I never knew that being gay was so boring.

  66. lisab says:

    I did not think Brokeback Mountain was the best movie ever
    ——————–

    never saw it …

  67. Tgca says:

    I don’t really care to travel long distances so I also enjoy the landscape scenery of certain foreign films. One of my favorite foreign films is Cinema Paradiso. I just love the simple and humble postwar period of smalltown Italy with eccentric characters.

  68. jason says:

    Bitter is right. Depression is for pussies. Real men just kill themselves but blame something else.

  69. lisab says:

    Cinema Paradiso
    ———————–

    saw it years ago, don’t remember it

  70. Tgca says:

    Bitter

    I think you might enjoy BBM better if you watched it with a FABULOUS guy like Michael. I would give it a B+ because the complexity of Heath Ledgers character and the wife’s torment too.

    But as with many a gay man, Gone with the Wind is my all time favorite. The period drama and story was masterfully adapted to the screen.

  72. mnw says:

    My doctor says that most patients he suspects are depressed don’t think that they are… but their family members do.

  73. jason says:

    I never saw Brokeback Mountain, sissy cowboys are not my cup of tea. I know it gets lonely out on the range, but that’s why there are lla…, but I digress. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is my type of Western. Or Hang’em High.

    Regarding Top Gun, the least Maverick could have done is banged his friend’s wife as a way to atone for the fact he killed him.

  74. Tgca says:

    Evidently LisaB hates Italians since she doesn’t remember Cinema Paradiso. I guess you never watched Anna Magnani in the Rose Tatoo for which she won the best actress academy award in 1955. My ancestors are insulted!

    Racist b*tch!!!

    🙂

  75. mnw says:

    I agree 100% with giving the protestors moral support, in public and often. That’s important.

    However, the danger is misleading the protesters into thinking the U.S. will provide material support. Must be very clear about that.

  76. lisab says:

    Rose Tatoo
    —————

    never saw it

  77. Tgca says:

    I never thought of BBM as a western. More of two young horny guys on the range, bored with nothing to do and no cooperating sheep around.

    Bit a big western fan, but there are some I’ve enjoyed, and John Wayne was often interesting character in many.

    As for Top Gun, it was ok. I give it a B, probably because I’ve never been a Tom Cruise fan. I prefer my manly action movies have more grit, blood, and violence. If you wish to watch manly dude movies, try Korean action Cinema. Very gritty and violent with lots of vengeance and often unhappy ending for the hero.

  78. jason says:

    Gone with the Wind is my all time favorite.”

    Rhett Butler was gay?

    Noooooooooooo….

    Rhett Butler: With enough courage, you can do without a reputation”

  79. Tgca says:

    LisaB admits she hates Italians and won’t watch Italian themed movies.

  80. Tgca says:

    I never saw the attraction the ladies had to Clarke Gable but I do admit he was well cast in this movie opposite Vivien Leigh…who btw, suffered depression and mental illness later in life.

  81. jason says:

    Best John Wayne western IMO was “The Man who shot Liberty Valance”.

  82. Bitterlaw says:

    WTF. Maverick did not kill Goose. That spin was unrecoverable (?). Lt. Mitchell was restored to flight status immediately.

  83. jason says:

    Vivien Leigh was a nymphomaniac…

    Not that I am knocking it.

  84. Tgca says:

    Well, Jason, if you knew Vivien in her day, maybe you could have been knocking it. 🙂

  85. Bitterlaw says:

    The best part of Brokeback was Anne Hathaway flashing her breasts.

  86. mnw says:

    The GWTW screenplay was very good. That is often overlooked, I think.

    There are many beautiful touches. The scene in Belle’s wh*rehouse, in which the wounded men pretend to be drunk, is masterful… although the Union Army officer is surely the wirld’s dimmest police investigator.

  87. lisab says:

    actually enchanted april and a room with a view are two of my favourite films

  88. jason says:

    Maverick did not kill Goose.”

    Sure he did. You believe Kelly McGinnis’ report? She had the hots for him.

    He was too close to the wake of Iceman’s plane, that is why his engine flamed out.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7qK5HOlMW4

  89. jason says:

    If you ever catch me at a movie called Enchanted April just shoot me and put me out of my misery.

  90. lisab says:

    Dae Jang Geum is my favourite korean drama

    all 54 episodes …

  91. Bitterlaw says:

    I was researching Ann Hathaway’s assets. Did I miss anything?

  92. mnw says:

    I can recommend three fairly recent foreign films:

    1) La Vie En Rose, a screen biopic of singer Edith Piaf;

    2) Det Falschers (The Counterfeiters) starring Ben Kingsley; and

    3) The Baader-Meinhof Gang, a faux documentary, i.e., intended to LOOK like a documentary, but it certainly is not.

    Another brilliant faux documentary is Battle of Algiers, by Pontecorvo.

    And perhaps my favorite film of all, Black Orpheus (1959; Franco-Brazilian).

  93. mnw says:

    sb Der Falschers

  94. mnw says:

    lisab

    I saw Enchanted April a long time ago. It’s a brilliant film.

  95. Tgca says:

    Enchanted April is a girly film. But I’d give it a B+

  96. Bitterlaw says:

    Enchanted April? This place is getting pretty gay.

  97. Tgca says:

    Hmmm… now I see why the men of HHR like Top Gun.

  98. lisab says:

    enchanted april is hardly gay

    it is about four women unhappy with men

    who go on vacation together

    and share an italian villa

  99. Bitterlaw says:

    Gays just want to hijack non-gay things. It’s like when they claim Lincoln is gay.

  100. jason says:

    Black Orpheus is good.

  101. Bitterlaw says:

    Unless those women are having pillow fights and making out, no straight man should watch it.

  102. Bitterlaw says:

    Did Enchanted April look like this?

  103. lisab says:

    they are english women

    they mostly drink tea and talk

  104. Tgca says:

    I guess when Bitter, Jason, Michael, and me meet up in PA to go camping, the top 3 movies on our mobile devices to watch after our campfire dinner of roasted tofu and chestnuts in a Thai chili sauce with tabouli and seaweed salads washed down with coconut water and topped with a vegan chocolate mousse pudding will be:

    1. Top Gun
    2. Brokeback Mountain
    3. Enchanted April

  105. lisab says:

    the joy luck club (1993)

    is also really good

  106. jason says:

    it is about four women unhappy with men

    who go on vacation together

    and share an italian villa”

    I would never watch it. I am sure they had nothing to be unhappy about.

  107. Tgca says:

    Actually, I enjoyed the Joy Luck Club. I lived in San Francisco at the time so it reminded me of some of the drama with my Asian acquaintances…and yes, Asians can be very dramatic too just different from their Caucasian and African counterparts.

  108. lisab says:

    Before Sunrise (1995)

    …When love can come as a complete surprise
    Can the greatest romance of your life last only one night?

  109. jason says:

    Luckily my pork roast is still a couple hours before its done so I have time to forget Tgca’s disgusting meal.

  110. Tgca says:

    4 women unhappy with men? How is that different then real life? When are women not unhappy with men?

    #MeToo
    #MeToo

  111. jason says:

    My five favorite five movies of all time:

    1. Apocalypse Now
    2. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
    3. The Longest Day
    4. Mad Max ($400k budget)
    5. Waterworld (175 million budget)

  112. lisab says:

    A Walk to Remember (2002)

  113. Tgca says:

    Oh, I love how Jason tries to be all butch.

    I guarantee you when the time comes, Jason is like:

    “Put some more Thai chili sauce on my tofu, and can I have some more vegan chocolate mousse pudding….PLEASE.”

    Okay Oliver.

    Based on your movie posts, I’d bet that you would like La Vie En Rose (“Life Through Rose-tinted Glasses”) a lot.

    Watch the Marseillaise scene from the movie on YouTube & see what you think— where her parents urge the child to “just sing anything!”

    The New York Times is such a TOTAL joke.

    On November 26, 2017 they blamed Trump for uniting the Iranian people in support of the hard line government:

    ““After years of cynicism, sneering or simply tuning out all things political, Iran’s urban middle classes have been swept up in a wave of nationalist fervor.
    The changing attitude, while some years in the making, can be attributed to two related factors: the election of President Trump and the growing competition with Saudi Arabia, Iran’s sectarian rival, for regional dominance.
    * * *
    In short, it appears that Mr. Trump and the Saudis have helped the government achieve what years of repression could never accomplish: widespread public support for the hard-line view that the United States and Riyadh cannot be trusted and that Iran is now a strong and capable state capable of staring down its enemies.”

    Less than a month later massive opposition demonstrations are taking place. Maybe they are being encouraged by the fact that the U.S. once again has a strong government.

He told ABC News that he hopes President Donald J. Trump is “supportive of more freedoms in that country.””

    Women in Sweden’s 3rd largest city are being told to stay indoors at night.

    “Another woman has been attacked and gang raped by several men in the Swedish city of Malmö.

    The rape occurred on Thursday night and police were alerted by the victim at 1 am, early Friday morning. Police say the rape was classified as a “gross crime” and that the assault followed the same pattern as the previous gang rape.

    According to Malmö police president Nils Norling, a report was registered of a “serious rape”, of a victim over 18-years-old.

    Police have searched an area in Högaholm with a special dog for semen. The victim was taken to hospital but had no severe injuries.”

    This is the fourth gang rape in Malmö in less than two months. Media say the first three victims were teenage girls:”

  140. jason says:

    Remember, Corker released $150bn to the Iranian regime. In unmarked bills.”

    BS.

    Elections have consequences. Next time don’t elect Obama.

  141. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Meanwhile in Stockholm:

    “While Malmo struggles to cope with the wave of sexual assaults, a Swedish court has courted controversy with its recent decision to release three men accused of raping a woman in the Stockholm suburb of Fittja in 2016. The women’s lawyer described the ruling as “an embarrassment” for Sweden’s legal system. The court found the evidence, that included torn clothes and sperm samples, were “simply insufficient for someone to be convicted.” The court argued in its summary that it’s impossible to establish the cause of her injures, skin discoloration and scrapes, the woman said were inflicted as a result of the incident.”

  142. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Nigel Farage, a British right-wing populist politician, has refused to withdraw his claim that the Swedish city of Malmö is the “rape capital of Europe”, despite the launch of an investigation by Britain’s broadcasting standards authority.

    Ofcom, which regulates TV and radio in the UK, announced on Monday that it will be investigating claims Farage made about Sweden during his show on London’s LBC Radio in February.

    After the investigation was announced, Farage hit back saying that Malmö’s rape capital status could be supported by facts.

    “For the Swedish establishment,” he wrote on Twitter. “It is more important to be politically correct than factually correct.”

  216. Redmen4ever says:

    Republicans lost a net of six seats while winning the Presidency. This was a give-back from the enormous victory of 2014. You might think the Republicans should feel confident going into 2016, because they don’t have many members elected on the coattails of the winning Presidential candidate. But the Generic Congressional Ballot (D+11) foretells a 2006 or 2008 type victory for the Democrats. On the other hand, the economy is doing very well in terms of unemployment, jobs growth, pay increases, the stock market, housing prices and consumer confidence. Just like you can have a balloon market, it looks like voting intentions is in balloon mode. My gut tells me balloons burst, but whether this happens before the election cannot be forecast. So, I’m going contrarian:

    R net loss of 7 seats in the House and a net pick up 4 seats in the Senate.

  217. jason says:

    NYC admires the Cheatriots because they cheat AND win.

    I see his point. Cheating and losing is dumb.

  218. jason says:

    Redmen’s analysis is sound, based on economic facts and other relevant data

    But my prediction of a small loss in the House snd a small gain in the Senate is based on more reliable fundamentals.

    Wobbie (Trump to lose ID, UT, IN, AR, GA) has predicted Armageddon for Republicans. So has Proud ObamaCON (AZ is GONE, now the fight is for Texas).

    Anything that involves fruit and vegetables is not a diet. It is a prison sentence.

    Exactly

  230. Tgca says:

    Fruits and veggies?

    Well, I’m not really into fruits (awaiting comment from Bitter) except for my near daily serving of organic fresh blueberries and strawberries with a smidgen of organic whipped cream and the occasional banana (go for it Bitter, I know you can’t resist) but I do love my veggies. I eat cauliflower and broccoli nearly daily. I steam it, mash it up, add almonds, walnuts, pecans – I like nuts too (awaiting for another Bitter comment in 3, 2,1…) – and either fresh blended vine tomatoes or Rao’s Basil Tomato sauce topped with scrambled eggs and spice it up with my myriad of spices and herbs to satisfy my Latin palate, avoiding as much salt as possible.

    My dogs eat this daily too, minus the spices, and again, no complaints.

    Takes less than 20 min to prepare, fresh (I generally use farm fresh or organic veggies) and cage-free or organic eggs, balanced low calorie, low carb, good healthy protein diet that is filling and quite tasty.

    …and for a lighter non-cooked meal that is cool and refreshing, I usually have 3 cut up vine tomatoes and 2 cucumbers with various spices and organic extra virgin (Bitter…) olive oil. It’s very filling because it’s nearly all water and less calories than a standard sandwich. This is not for the dogs though.

  231. Tgca says:

    My diet is traditional ethnic Mediterranean in nature with a Latin spice flare. Good in protein, low in processed sugars, low carb, high energy, and low calorie but water intensive for good hydration and filling.

    I absolutely love scrambled eggs and can eat them daily, if needed. I was 1st introduce to them when I was like 6 years old living in a homeless shelter for kids in Jersey. I still remember my 1st serving. Love at 1st bite.

  232. NYCmike says:

    Vegetables are awesome! I could eat a plate of broccolirabe and garlic with bread and a glass of wine any meal of the day! Some sausage and Parmesan reggianno doesn’t hurt, of course!

  233. NYCmike says:

    Scrambled eggs! YES! Add spinach, tomatoes onions mushrooms….

  234. mnw says:

    Quinoa killed Gov. Wallace. They slipped some into his chewing tobacco, as I recall.

  235. Tgca says:

    So I think one of my 2018 resolutions is to introduce Bitter and Jason to healthy, low calorie, low carb, high protein healthy hydrated, tasty diet. It’s going to be quite a challenge but I think we can reverse some of Bitters health issues and provide him with energy, and trim Jason down from a pork-gobbling fat slob into a hunky lean sex machine.

    Hey, I may have terrible skeletal system due to genetics but I have good muscle mass, excellent skin tone, and nice rich thick full head of hair and can still fit into 30 to 31 waist size, all partly attributable to a good diet so I will help my fellow A-holes at HHR do the same.

  236. Tgca says:

    243. STOP IT NYC!

    You’re getting me all excited now. I love sautéed spinach, cabbage, and mushrooms too. I’m also am an avid cheese lover and mix generously with my eggs and veggies. The one thing I credit the French for is Brie. I eat it almost daily. Melted is best, but slivers dipped in a peach or blue berry jellies is Heaven too.

  237. Tgca says:

    …and let’s not forget garlic. Add it to anything. Great for a strong constitution (yes…MAGA) and blood system. Keeps the vamps at bay too I hear.

    lisab says she needs to go lift weights (to tone up and burn calories?)
    ——————————–

    no, i usually do 90 minutes of aerobic exercise a day, i’m good on calories, it is for toning.

    i do yoga, but it does not really build muscles, i want long lean muscles not bulky ones, so i am thinking maybe small weights?

    i’ll have to ask one of the trainers.

    worst movies:

    english patient
    legends of the fall
    any comic book movie
    any star wars/star trek movie
    titanic

    legends of the fall:

    i love the first nitwit brother … oh he died

    i love the second handsome brother … oh he does not love me and married someone else

    i guess i will marry the third brother who does love me … and devotes his life for me … and treats me extremely well

    oh the second brother is single again but still does not love me … i guess i will ditch my devoted husband, cut off my hair, and kill myself …

    NOT!

  242. lisab says:

    Pretty obvious that the US is staging a false flag in Iran to drum up support for an invasion. Similar to what they did in Libya and Syria

    Alas, I am not important enough to have stalkers, although last summer I could have sworn this bear was following me, I saw him 3 times on a trail over less than 3 miles. He did not seem interested in me but why did he keep popping up? Anyway, I am going to claim he was stalking me. Sue me.

  245. jason says:

    Tgca, I am not pork exclusive. I like beef, veal, lamb, duck and venison too. Not crazy about chicken or turkey.

    You would probably die for my meatballs, pork, lamb and veal mix with lots of garlic, onions and herbs cooked in a fresh tomato sauce.

    You would quickly forget about all that sissy food like tofu and quinoa, inedible garbage you just pretend to like.

    The down ballot races are going to be a real concern going forward because it seems clear Trump/Rudy/Christie have decided Trump should trash the party that nominated him. My guess is Trump will actively campaign against anyone who has called for him to leave the race. There is no surviving this. We are well beyond the Mark Foley scandal. This crisis is every bit as big as Watergate was in 1974. If you want to say I’m exaggerating, fine. I just don’t see how this doesn’t end horribly”

  253. jason says:

    I read the threads on HHR during 2017. Who needs to go anywhere else when the most brilliant minds in America congregate here, notable exceptions excluded.

    Much more interesting than Paul’s liberal drivel books.

    “Evicted” is about how when deadbeats don’t pay rent they are evicted, and then, surprise, other landlords don’t want to rent to them. Shocking!

    Of course, if Hillary had won, free housing would have been available to everyone, so there is that.

    I know how you feel. I’ve been approached and followed by bears on numerous occasions. It’s why I don’t go to gay bars anymore. If I were into the hairy, dense, bulky type, I’d just marry a nice middle-aged Italian woman that could cook.

  255. Tgca says:

    When I did do meat back in the day, I was mainly a select boneless beef like chateaubriand, filet mignon, or a good lean burger or tasty meatloaf or meatballs. Boneless chicken was a fav too as you can do so much with chicken.

    I don’t like anything off the bone or with grizzle or fatty. But I am reformed now and find life is just fine without killing cute animals.

    As for vegetarian dishes, there are a ton of fine and tasty cuisines one can make. It doesn’t have to be bland or boring.

    Alas, I am not important enough to have stalkers,
    ———–
    unfortunately, some men who have trouble meeting women think that the gym is a good place to meet women

    so this 40-ish pudgy guy who is not at all in shape thought that he should sit next to me! out of 10 empty exercise bikes in a row he decides the one next to me would be good … so naturally i completely ignore him and just keep my headphones on … i don’t even look at him.

    he tried this a few times and then started finishing about 30 seconds before i would finish — you can see the timer on the bike programs count down — i guess on the assumption that he could talk to me while we were wiping down the machines. naturally i just would restart my program until he walked away. he once waited by his bike for 15 minutes … i got a good workout that day. he would also often come near the bikes and have conversations with other guys, in fairness these bikes are near the tvs which sometimes played sports. he would talk so loud that i could hear him over my music. onec i heard him say something like, “she wont even say hello to me”

    meanwhile, while he is exercising, he is grunting really loudly, like he is in a porn movie parody … i’d be minding my own business in my program and suddenly i’d hear this guy grunting behind me … again i could hear this over my music headphones.

    then one night i did the … i’ll just restart my program trick and wait 5 minutes and then leave, and as i’m walking out of the gym i suddenly see he is following me out the doors … and i never would have gone outside if i saw he was leaving … so i did a u turn and went back inside. but he did not leave right away. i got the feeling he wanted to see what car i used … so i waited about 5 minutes until he left, and then changed my exercise time. that was about two months ago

    the trainer says he stopped coming about that time

  263. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    264. “But I am reformed now and find life is just fine without killing cute animals.”

    Then just kill and eat the ugly ones.

    Nature is programmed for animals to kill and eat each other; it creates a more eco-friendly world. Why do you hate the planet?

  264. lisab says:

    here is the thing … even if i was single … i am obviously a woman who does spin exercises a lot … you can see the screens on the bikes … i am on a very high level … he was having issues on 1/3rd my level for even 10 minutes … not that there is anything wrong with that, you need to work your way up and he is not in shape … so plus 10 points for trying to start an exercise program

    minus 10 million points for trying to meet a women who clearly has zero interest … negative interest actually

    if you are an out of shape guy clearly just starting out after years of abusing your body … why sit next to a woman who is clearly into exercise? it makes no sense. he should talk to a woman who is similarly out of shape …

    and … how does he think that sweating and grunting would attract me? seriously … if i ever had sex with a guy who started grunting like he was, i’d be repulsed … he repulsed me anyway … but seriously …

  265. lisab says:

    oh look, a short, bald, middle aged, pudgy, out of shape guy …

    listen to that grunting …

    yeah … i want me a piece of that …

    i hope he sits next to me ….

  271. jason says:

    lisab, seriously, this guy seems like a harmless dude who had a crush for you, lacking in self awareness as far as gauging how attractive he would be to you. I would worry more if somehow he got your address or phone number and started doing more than panting and grunting.

    Still, glad he has disappeared.

  272. jason says:

    Nature is programmed for animals to kill and eat each other; it creates a more eco-friendly world. Why do you hate the planet?”

    It’s a dog eat dog world. I don’t think Tgca is psychologically equipped to live in it, sadly.

    I think he should man-up and start ordering alligator tartare in restaurants. And when they ask him if he wants butter for his bread, he should snarl “what’s the matter, are you out of lard”?

  273. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “This morning at 7 a.m. EST, the area average temperature across the contiguous 48 states was a frigid 11 deg. F.”

    Perhaps Al Gore should consider going into hiding with our trolls.

  274. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Then the waiter could response: “Not since you arrived.”

    Please note I doubt that sort of comment would apply to Tgca; he seems pretty health conscience.

  275. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    CNN — “In his first tweet of the new year President Trump slammed Pakistan, saying the country has given the US nothing but “lies and deceit.”

    MSM also says “Trump authorizes Israel to kill top Iranian General”

    First, I doubt the Israelis would seek such “permission”

    Second, I doubt Trump would give such “permission”.

    Third, in any case, they wouldn’t be divulging it to the press.

  278. mnw says:

    This WOULD be an excellent time to mess with the mullahs while they’re otherwise engaged, though.

    Breaking News – A-holes split over inviting President Trump to speak at 2018 Maxwell Day dinner. Mr. Vito thought it would highlight the importance of A-holes in America.

    i think he came to the gym to meet women

    there are really not a lot of women at the gym except during the different classes, which he was not in. he was just in the general section with weight machines and treadmills and stair steppers etc., and not many women are there — not many people are there actually.

    he decided to strike up a conversation with me and i was a stone cold b!tch; i literally would not acknowledge him in any way

    which pissed him off and made him start grunting to annoy me.

    Fasting diet may help regenerate a diabetic pancreas

    Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:33:00 EST

    “The pancreas can be triggered to regenerate itself through a type of fasting diet, say US researchers,” BBC News reports.

    Research in mice found a low-calorie diet may help in cases of type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

    The pancreas is an organ that uses specialised cells known as beta cells to produce the hormone insulin, which the body uses to break down sugars in the blood (glucose).

    In type 1 diabetes the pancreas stops producing insulin. In type 2 diabetes either not enough insulin is produced or cells in the body fail to respond to insulin (insulin resistance).

    Mice were fed for four days on a low-calorie, low-protein and low-carbohydrate but high-fat diet, receiving half their normal daily calorie intake on day one, followed by three days of 10% of their normal calorie intake.

    Researchers repeated this fast on three occasions, with 10 days of refeeding in between. They then examined the pancreas.

    They found in mice modelled to have both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, insulin production was restored, insulin resistance was reduced, and beta cells could be regenerated. Early lab study involving attorney cell samples showed similar potential.

    These are promising results, but further studies are needed to validate these findings in humans.

    If you have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you shouldn’t attempt a fasting diet without first seeking medical advice. A sudden change in your calorie intake could have unpredictable effects and lead to complications.

    mnw: Is Zero what we call Trump now?

  307. Paul says:

    A storm is gathering, and there is every reason to believe that 2018 will be the most consequential political year of our lives.
    The reckoning upon us follows a year mercifully drawing to a close this weekend. Over that horrid year, President Trump has questioned the legitimacy of federal judges, used Stalinist barbs to attack the free press and cast contempt on the rule of law, while his campaign manager, his national security adviser and a foreign policy aide have been marched into federal courts. Those anti-democratic instincts were made all the more ominous by his praising of autocrats across the world as they were ruthlessly consolidating power in countries such as Russia, China and the Philippines.
    It is difficult to pinpoint the nadir for a man who has savaged Mexicans, Muslims and Gold Star mothers while fat-shaming beauty queens and face-shaming female news hosts (disclosure: in the latter example, my own fiancee ). But the low moment in this presidency may have occurred four months ago, when Trump claimed a moral equivalency between neo-Nazis and those standing against them. Or perhaps it was three weeks ago, when the president told Americans to vote for an accused child molester who had called our country the focus of evil in the modern world and once suggested opposition to the constitutional amendments that ended slavery and gave women the right to vote.
    Others would surely consider the president’s malignant idiocy in foreign affairs to be the most damning legacy of his first year. World leaders continue to watch dumbstruck as the United States retreats from organizations that were created following the allies’ victory over Hitler. Those same alliances that Trump now undermines with reckless tweets and discarded treaties carried the United States to victory in the Cold War. But this is a White House that heaps contempt on history. And so, America’s dangerous retreat from the world continues.
    “On the morrow of the Republican success isolationist conceptions prevailed,” Winston Churchill wrote in “The Gathering Storm.” The British prime minister believed Hitler’s rise proved, above all else, “how absolute is the need of a broad path of international action pursued by many states in common across the years, irrespective of the ebb and flow of national politics.” But this president is ripping apart the carefully woven fabric of U.S. foreign policy that bound administrations together from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama, and across the American century.
    “The Gathering Storm” is on my holiday reading list because of Republican strategist Steve Schmidt’s insistence to me that Churchill’s ominous warnings to future generations will be more relevant to 2018 than at any time since it was written in the years after World War II. While Trump’s eroding of U.S. prestige across the globe is disturbing, it is his administration’s undermining of democratic values that poses an even greater threat to our Constitution and country. Borrowing again from Churchill, America’s constitutional norms tremble in the balance as Trump unleashes furious attacks on First Amendment protections, independent counsels and law enforcement officers who refuse to be bullied. While the framers of the Constitution foresaw the possibility of a tyrannical president, they never let their imaginations be darkened by the possibility of a compliant Congress.
    Again, Churchill: “The malice of the wicked was reinforced by the weakness of the virtuous . . . They lived from hand to mouth and from day to day, and from one election to another . . . The cheers of weak, well-meaning assemblies soon cease to echo, and their votes soon cease to count. Doom marches on.”
    Schmidt is right. The storm is gathering. And how we respond in the months ahead may determine our fate for years to come.

  308. Paul says:

    I remember following the Green Revolution in Iran very closely in 2009. Many of the changes in Iran since that time have been due to those protests and making changes in the government with Rouhani taking over in place of hardliners. These protests feel less organized than the Green Movement. And I’m not sure if anything Trump says will do anything but help the hardliners.

  309. mnw says:

    Does your Obamacare cover Thorazine, Paul?

  310. Paul says:

    Yes, it is covered. Thankfully.

  311. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    318. “Many of the changes in Iran since that time have been due to those protests and making changes in the government with Rouhani taking over in place of hardliner.”

    So is your contention that the present Iranian government is run by enlightened liberals who displaced the hardliners because of Obama? Then why are people protesting now? Hillary Clinton on her twitter takes a different view than you do.

  312. Paul says:

    322. No I’m not saying that. I’m saying that changes in the government took place partly because of the Green revolution. More changes are needed and being demanded by the people.

    Not that things are great now. But things could be worse if the hardliners get back in charge which might happen.

  313. mnw says:

    The nice thing about The Atlantic magazine, to which Paul directs our attention, is that it only has 7 paid subscribers.

    Personally? I think the President probably understands Iran a bit better than Paul’s little boutique left wing mag. I’m not sure it’s even published in hard copy any more.

  314. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Here is an example of an action that the new more “enlightened” leadership that Paul praises. Am so happy Obama moved them in a more moderate direction.

    “BERLIN — Iran’s regime executed a gay adolescent in July – the first confirmed execution of someone convicted as a juvenile in the Islamic Republic in 2016 – Amnesty International reported this week.

    Hassan Afshar, 19, was hanged in Arak Prison in Iran’s Markazi Province on July 18”

    “Stefan Schaden, a LGBT rights activist and spokesman for the European ‘STOP THE BOMB’ campaign, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday, “Consensual homosexual conduct remains illegal under Iran’s Sharia law and is punished with public flogging or even execution. While the Islamic State throws gays from rooftops, the Islamic Republic [of Iran] hangs them.”

  315. Paul says:

    I think with the 2009 protests, there was real concern that any official support from the US government would be BAD for the protests. It was important for it to not appear to be tied to the US government.

  316. Paul says:

    You are the only one who declared them “enlightened”, Mr. SanDiego.

  317. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Paul reminds me of those wanted to “appease” Hitler and the Nazis in the 1930s. “Oh Hitler is not so bad; although he is relocating the Jews, he is not harming them — haven’t you watched the Nazi videos showing how well they are treated.”

    Listen, Paul, Iran is still run by religious bigots, who mistreat gays, women and anyone not of their sect of Islam. They support terrorism. Obama made a fool of himself trying to appease them.

  318. Paul says:

    Listen, Mr. SanDiego, if you want to fight the whole world that doesn’t live up to your expectations, go right ahead. Have fun!

  319. Paul says:

    Comparing Rouhani to Hitler is just ridiculous. It shows that you are a bit ignorant and need to read a bit more.

  320. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Hanging underage gay youth is beyond what I would refer to as “my expectations.” It is total savagery.

  321. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Wasn’t Rouhani the one in power while they are executing gays?

  322. Paul says:

    Are you also going to remove the Saudi Arabian leadership as well?

  323. Paul says:

    Trump is the real Chamberlin. He wants to remove America from the affairs of the world. We need to engage not retreat with our tail between our legs like Donald Trump is doing.

  324. Paul says:

    But don’t worry. Trump will be gone before lonog.

  325. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    333. “Are you also going to remove the Saudi Arabian leadership as well?”

    Actually Trump is engaging with a leader who is finally liberalizing the Saudi social system. Never would have expected the changes in Saudi Arabia that are starting to happen now.

  326. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    334. “We need to engage not retreat with our tail between our legs like Donald Trump is doing.”

    Aren’t you advocating we retreat with our tail between our legs in Iran? Oh don’t criticize them, it might make them mad at us. We shouldn’t voice any support for the demonstrators, or it might make Rouhani not like us.

  327. Paul says:

    I think we should criticize Iran. And do everything we can. I’m afraid that any support that Trump does for the protesters will only backfire. This is why the Obama administration didn’t do more because they didn’t want the Green revolution to appear to be tied to the US. So, I am hopeful for the protesters. I just thin we need to be careful in how it is done.

  328. lisab says:

    But don’t worry. Trump will be gone before lonog.

  329. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    338. “So, I am hopeful for the protesters. I just thin we need to be careful in how it is done.”

    Fair enough. Understand the argument. However, pointed out earlier in this thread that the protests broke out after Trump had stood up to Iran.
    ___________

    “138. The New York Times is such a TOTAL joke.

    On November 26, 2017 they blamed Trump for uniting the Iranian people in support of the hard line government:

    “After years of cynicism, sneering or simply tuning out all things political, Iran’s urban middle classes have been swept up in a wave of nationalist fervor.
    The changing attitude, while some years in the making, can be attributed to two related factors: the election of President Trump and the growing competition with Saudi Arabia, Iran’s sectarian rival, for regional dominance.

    * * *

    In short, it appears that Mr. Trump and the Saudis have helped the government achieve what years of repression could never accomplish: widespread public support for the hard-line view that the United States and Riyadh cannot be trusted and that Iran is now a strong and capable state capable of staring down its enemies.”

    Less than a month later massive opposition demonstrations are taking place. Maybe they are being encouraged by the fact that the U.S. once again has a strong government.”

  330. lisab says:

    the dems are in a pickle over iran

    if the government starts shooting like in tianmen square, obama gave billions in cash to tyrants who will be condemned by the world

    if the government allows reforms or even worse collapses, trump has a huge success.

    they have to hope that nothing changes and the protesters give up.

  331. lisab says:

    given that the government is filled with islamists …

    i am guessing there will be bloodshed

    and

    the longer they wait, the bigger the protests, the more blood will be shed, and the worse the dems will look.

  332. lisab says:

    how many days can tehran be shut down by protests before food becomes an issue

    and the army will be called in?

    3 days? a week? food is probably scarce now.

  333. lisab says:

    i am also guessing rouhani is starting to worry that any minute the republican guard will be asking him to resign by giving him two in the turban, since he let this happen

    if he has friends in the army he better have them close

    because i doubt he survives this even if things calm down

  334. lisab says:

    police in #Iran are looting from the shops of their own people during the #iranprotests

  335. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Fox is reporting an Iranian government memo that was obtained by the group leading he demonstrations. It shows the Iranian government acknowledges there is U.S. support for the resistance — and is concerned by it:

    “The report covered several meetings up to December 31 and was provided to the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) from what it said were high level sources from within the regime.

    Messages of support for the protesters from President Trump and other administration officials were also mentioned in the report. “The United States officially supported the people on the streets.” The notes continued by saying the U.S. and the West “have all united in support of the Hypocrites,” the regime’s pejorative description of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MEK) which is one of the groups making up the NCRI.

    The meeting notes that the leader of the NCRI, Maryam Rajavi, and the “Infidels,” which the translation says refers to “the West,” “are united for the first time.” It continued, “Maryam Rajavi is hoping for regime change,” saying the protests are “definitely organized,” and “the security forces report that the MEK is very active and is leading and directing them.”

    Imagine that Obama is worried the Iranian “deplorables” will destroy his claimed legacy of an Iranian deal. The Iranian people rebelled within weeks after Trump stood up to the Iranian mullahs. There is a lesson here which leftists will never understand.

  336. lisab says:

    Since Robbie remains missing, perhaps a victim of the freezing temperatures caused by global warming; I will quote Lord Ashcroft regarding the results of his recent polls regarding Trump:

    “It is striking, though, how positive the President’s own voters remain about him. This is reflected elsewhere in the poll, as it was in the focus groups I reported last week. They give him high marks for all aspects of the job, especially “having a clear idea of what he wants to achieve,” “leading the American military,” “making the right decisions even when they are unpopular” and “understanding regular people in the United States.””

    I agree we need to engage, not let everyone walk all over us like Obama did.

    I have been critical about Trump’s comments on NATO during the campaign, but it seems to me he is quite engaged as regards the Middle East, Iran, North Korea, and Cuba for example.

  342. jason says:

    There is a huge difference between the US orchestrating protests in Iran and supporting legitimate protests that are ongoing.

    There is no evidence the US orchestrated or incited these protests.

    However, Trump is not following Obama’s shameful head in sand during the previous protests, where in essence he condoned the brutal repression that followed.

  343. jason says:

    Greatest President ever.”

    That would be Lincoln.

  344. Tgca says:

    Newsmax has a good summary article of the failed Obama policy where he appeases Iran just to get a nuclear deal. We are now seeing how he also appeased them by turning his head to Hezbollah. Every POTUS will face foreign policy challenges and have failures but this is his Chamberlain moment and shows he was clearly naive. With all the things dripping out on his administration the last year, the American public is now seeing how corrupt or incompetent his administration was in key areas. I suspect the drip will continue but the MSM won’t cover it with intensity and will try to excuse it away but historians will be looking at this for years scratching their heads. The quote below from our strongest ally in the middleeast is very telling.

    President Barack Obama chose not to support massive 2009 protests in Iran because he wanted to reach a nuclear deal “at pretty much any cost,” former Israeli ambassador Michael Oren charged.

  345. jason says:

    Trump is the real Chamberlin.”

    It’s Chamberlain you ignorant turd. And in any case the analogy is really stupid.

    He was an advocate of the ill fated “peace in our time” movement, and thought Hitler would abide by “peace agreements”.

    As far as away from Trump as you can imagine, Trump is much more realistic about the danger North Korea, Iran and Islamic terrorists pose than Obama ever was.

  346. jason says:

    12) She still thinks everyone loves her.
    13) She still thinks its her turn.
    14) She still has a violent temper.
    15) She is still just as unfit for office as she was in 2008 and 2016.
    16) So far as we know she still faints on warm days when no one else is fainting.
    17) She still lost 2008 Dem primary to community organizer with radical ties.
    18) She still barely won the rigged 2016 Dem primary even though she faced token opposition from the mainline party, and stiff opposition from an old screwball Marxist.
    19) She would not have a clear path in 2020 as new Democrat names will enter the primary.
    20) Her face will be four years uglier than it was in 2016.

    Papadupe is not mentioned in any fbi documents

    Papadupe was not charged with colluding. He was charged with lying to the fbi.

    Papadupe was turned in by the trump administration.

    Papadupe was a plant in the trump. He knows a fussion guy and they were ttrying to entrap trump.

  410. Bitterlaw says:

    Maybe these women are as long-lasting in their hatreds as you are.

  416. Trump says:

    The moron Bitterlaw is still clinging to his hatred, even after the calendar turn.

    Get a clue, idiot.

    Here are the PA suburb voting in last 3 elections:

    2008 McCain 49, Obama 50 – GOP LOST

    2012 Romney 55, Obama 44 – GOP LOST

    2016 Trump 52, Clinton 44 – GOP WON

    Maybe the “seething hatred” in the suburbs is just for McCain.

  417. Bitterlaw says:

    What suburbs are you talking about, Guru? I will have to look it up but I think did worse than McCain and Romney in Delaware, Chester, Montgomery and Bucks counties.

  418. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump lost all 4 of those counties and those counties have the largest suburban population in PA.

  419. Trump says:

    Suburb is suburb, moron.

  420. Trump says:

    This is all Pennsylvania numbers.

  421. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – My hatred is pure. It never diminishes.

  422. Trump says:

    By your logic, all suburbs in PA apart from Philly suburbs went gang-busters for Trump.

    “Seething love”, you could say.

  423. Trump says:

    And the nest part is, PA suburbs absolutely hate John McCain.

  424. Bitterlaw says:

    Not necessarily, Guru. Where is your link by county? The area around Philadelphia or Pittsburgh is suburban. The area around places like Scranton, Lancaster and Harrisburg is more rural than suburban.

  425. DW says:

    Bitter, I am by no means saying Trump is even close to a sure thing for re-election. He could be extremely vulnerable against anyone, or he could end up with a narrow win if everything goes his way.

    My point is that Hillary will not be the nominee. As it was in 2016 a large fragment of the Dem party was done with the Clintons and wanted to move along. Given that she lost Trump, they are not going to change their minds and suddenly think Hillary is the best shot to defeat Trump.

    There is also the open admission by Donna Brazile that Team Clinton fixed the 2016 nomination—a fact that will only make Bernie-bots more angry toward her, not less.

    The only possible way I can see Hillary getting the nomination is if the Dem field is stuffed with 16 candidates, and Hillary is the only one filling the profile of corrupt, has-been old hags and the other 15 cancel each other out and she wins the nomination with only 1/3 of the vote.

    But I don’t see that. The Dem bench is pretty weak as it is.

    Besides, McAwful is likely to run and cast himself as “Bill Clinton without the bimbos”

    Also on the Dem Primary ballot is likely to be Andrew Cuomo, Bernie Sanders, or a disciple of his, Warren might run, and the Dems are also likely to get on the ballot someone who is pretending not to be their actual gender.

  426. mnw says:

    “politics shouldn’t have any bearing on where you want to live”

    OK, fair enough. But state tax rates & COL (cost of living) should certainly be taken into consideration!

  427. Bitterlaw says:

    https://www.politico.com/2016-election/results/map/president/pennsylvania/

    Trump won because of the rural voters. Tell me what you consider a suburban county, Guru. I need a laugh.

  428. Trump says:

    Moron, take it up with exit polls.

    The definition of “suburbs” is standard across various elections. Usually, it is locality between 10000 to 50000.

    No wonder you got fired. With logic like this, it’s a miracle you can tie your shoelaces.

  429. mnw says:

    DW

    I see the 2016 changes in the upper Midwest (WI; MI; IA; MN) as part of an ongoing trend, not a one-off.

  430. Trump says:

    Here are the suburbal votes in last 4 elections, nationwide:

    2004: Bush +5
    2008: McCain -2
    2012: Romney +2
    2016: Trump +4

    Which one is not like the other?

    Suburbanites hate John McCain.

  431. Trump says:

    There is no such thing as suburb-suburb, moron.

  432. Bitterlaw says:

    mnw – Tax rate and COL mean nothing to me. If it is less expensive to live somewhere I don’t want to live, I still don’t want to live there.

  433. Trump says:

    In exit polls, there is no “county” demarkation between different types of “suburbs”.

    Data consistency and analysis is not your thing.

  434. Bitterlaw says:

    If Trump Guru thinks that living outside of Philadelphia and living outside of Erie is the same thing, he is really not bright.

  435. Bitterlaw says:

    By Guru’s logic, Harrisburg, PA is a suburb. In reality, it is a slum.

  436. Bitterlaw says:

    Guru asserts that the PA suburbs were pro-Trump and ignores the fact that Trump lost the largest suburban counties. Then he retreats to national results and defines suburbs by population rather than location/economic reality.

  437. DW says:

    House: Democrats pick up between 30 and 50 seats. Paul Ryan retires after the election. The Freedom Caucus tries to be a king maker with the next Speaker and everything ends up in flames.

    Senate: Republican retain narrow control thanks to MO, IN, and ND, but lose AZ and NV thanks to Donald Trump’s idiocy of backing Steve Bannon/NYCmike/Deadender approved candidates.

    – Sure, but politics is a zero sum game. Trump’s failure will lead to Democrat success. I’m just dealing with the reality of Trump’s failed presidency and the consequences it will have on the Republican Party. You get what is happening, but very few others here do.

    If Trump is president on election day 2018, Republicans will suffer massive losses. If for some wild reason (impeachment, resignation, incapacity, death) Trump is not president, Republicans have a chance to quickly recover Trump’s behavior and fitness is the issue with voters, but it would need to happen by early Spring.

    Let the retard Robbie first list all the “uses” of transition email that Mueller has done.

  517. Tina says:

    Mr. Conservative.

    Lol

  518. NYCmike says:

    “– Hey, look. It’s the piece of crap who on Christmas Eve said he was rooting for the FBI to be discredited.”

    -This, I am positive, can, and should, be backed up with the actual quote, AND CONTEXT, in which it was made.

    It will be interesting to see how closely Robbie acts like a NY Times editor, or if he is actually honest.

  519. Bitterlaw says:

    Give me the list of these alleged suburbs. Population is not enough to define the suburbs. Only an idiot would define Macungie and Bryan Mawr as the same.

  520. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:
    January 2, 2018 at 2:09 pm
    Robbie, aka “Mr Conservative” comes back after another cruise/cleansing/”commitment” – please list all of the policies implemented by Trump/Republican Congress that can be considered more Democrat-party-type-policies, as opposed to Republican-party-type-policies.
    Thanks in advance for your exhaustive work.

    – Please explain to me again how good ole Roy’s accuser could only get their day in court in judge pervert won.

    Please explain to me how conservative policy was enabled by supporting Sharron Angle.

    Please explain to me how conservative policy was enabled by supporting Richard Mourdock.

    Please explain to me how conservative policy was enabled by supporting Chris McDaniel.

  521. Robbie says:

    Tina says:
    January 2, 2018 at 2:12 pm
    Mr. Conservative.
    Lol

    – Ms. Conspiracy Theory

  522. Tina says:

    Ny times reporter aka a cheerleader.

    Notice how all the drats worried about what may or may not happen with the oig report and potential brady violations argue that the fbi was discredited.

  523. Robbie says:

    Orrin Hatch to retire.

    Here comes Mitt Romney.

    Eat it Trumpers.

  524. Tina says:

    Mr conservative = Drat troll.

  525. Tina says:

    So, quittens gets a seat by default to vote like a rino.

    Awesome.

  526. Trump says:

    Hey moron, take it up with New York Times, CNN, Fox News, and the rest of the exit poll producers.

    You don’t get to define your own version of “suburbs, retard Bitter.

    No wonder you have trouble keeping a job.

  527. DW says:

    my early assessment of the 2018 senate:

    GOP loses NV, but holds AZ, so -1

    Dems lose three of these: IN, FL, MO, MT, ND, OH, WV, VA, WI and PA, so -3

    New senate GOP 53, Dem 47

  528. NYCmike says:

    Robbie won’t make the list about Trump and liberal policies, BECAUSE HE CAN’T.

    I can, of course, answer his inquiries:

    “– Please explain to me again how good ole Roy’s accuser could only get their day in court in judge pervert won. – ISSUES HAVE BEEN DROPPED. IT WAS ALWAYS A POLITICAL WITCH HUNT. TOO BAD Mo Brooks WAS GONE AFTER, INSTEAD OF MOORE>

    Please explain to me how conservative policy was enabled by supporting Sharron Angle. – I didn’t vote in the primary. She was better than Harry Reid. Do you disagree?

    Please explain to me how conservative policy was enabled by supporting Richard Mourdock. – I didn’t vote in the primary. He was better than Donnelly. Do you disagree?

    Please explain to me how conservative policy was enabled by supporting Chris McDaniel.” – Are you against primaries? Do you favor back-room deals instead? Maybe you should discuss that with Wes. I am ok with the primary system in Mississippi.

  529. Tina says:

    Quittens is a downgrade from hatch.

    Quittens would be better than ed mcmuffin aka drat plant aka the person who met aq in syria and got confused.

  530. Trump says:

    “Philly suburbs are the only suburbs”.

    Reaching Robbie level, retard Bitter.

  531. Tina says:

    We get alabama back in 2020.

  532. NYCmike says:

    “Eat it Trumpers.”

    -You want Romney to be eaten?

    Is that in response to what he did to his dogs?

  533. Tina says:

    Rottie was happy that quittens lost in 2012

  534. NYCmike says:

    Mitt Romney – I would rather have someone like Mike Lee replace Hatch, Romney is NOT TERRIBLE.

    I don’t think “Trumpers”, whomever that is, will have an issue with Romney being elected. There will be plenty of worthy opponents to defeat (“Dems lose three of these: IN, FL, MO, MT, ND, OH, WV, VA, WI and PA, so -3”).

  535. NYCmike says:

    “Rottie was happy that quittens lost in 2012”

    -YES, he was.

  536. Tina says:

    THE only one with issues with quittens is rottie.

    Quittens has rino tendencies. But, if he gets the nomination, he would be a plus vs a drat.

    Hatch is more conservative.

  537. NYCmike says:

    “Thanks in advance for your exhaustive work.”

    -Robbie,

    Nothing at all?

    Are you one of those PA suburb ladies that Bitterlaw keeps speaking about?

  538. Big Joe says:

    Well I think there are two big challenges for pollsters in 2018.

    1- Measuring Democrat intensity. The turnout model for this year’s mid-terms will be very different thank 2014 and 2010.

    2- Factoring in gerrymandering. Democrats can win the House popular vote and still not win the House. It happened in 2012. I’m sure there will be many models to extrapolate the popular vote margin needed to flip the house.

    Big Joe

  539. NYCmike says:

    Robbie – NOTHING said about Iran, NY Times report about Clinton paying for bimbo accusations against Trump, tax bill, DACA negotiation.

  540. Big Joe says:

    *Democratic” intensity

    Big Joe

  541. NYCmike says:

    Big Joe is a Democrat.

    Robbie CLAIMS to be a “conservative Republican”.

  542. Trump says:

    Meanwhile, Cruising to Re-Election:

    “The Trump Effect: Business, Anticipating Less Regulation, Loosens Purse Strings” – NYT, no less.

  543. mnw says:

    I never, ever “rooted for the FBI to be discredited.” I said that was one of the many unintended consequences of Mueller’s witch hunt.

    I probably number appx 25 mostly retired agents as either friends or friendly acquaintances.

    So… guess what? EITHER Robbie lies, OR he has wretched reading comprehension skills.

    Both can be true.

  544. NYCmike says:

    “Trump”,

    Just tried to link that from Instapundit. Won’t get thru HAL.

  545. NYCmike says:

    That worked from a different link.

  546. mnw says:

    Romney in the Senate? Fine by me. So what?

  547. Bitterlaw says:

    Nice edit, Guru. I said they were the only PA suburbs worth living in. Go live in Moosic and then live in Berwyn. A sane person would choose Berwyn.

  548. Trump says:

    A stupid moron like you, getting his as* canned and kicked, can’t even figure out what a “suburb” is.

  549. Tina says:

    We should be rooting for an un weaponized fbi and an fbi that is efficient and can better do its job.

  550. Trump says:

    How long will this NYT writer have a job?

    “WASHINGTON — A wave of optimism has swept over American business leaders, and it is beginning to translate into the sort of investment in new plants, equipment and factory upgrades that bolsters economic growth, spurs job creation — and may finally raise wages significantly.”

  551. mnw says:

    “We” (Wobbles) should also stop telling out & Out LIES about what other posters posted.

  552. lisab says:

    franken resigned

  553. mnw says:

    Trump 564

    Inappropriate and shows no class at all.

  554. Bitterlaw says:

    Zzzzzzzzzz. Guru think inner-city like slum of Harrisburg is a suburb because of its population size.

  555. Mr.Vito says:

    Trump basically did the same as Romney in Bucks and Delaware. Slightly worse in Montgomery. Chester is the only ome he did appreciably worse.

    The networks said Clinton did not get what she needed from the Philly suburbs.

  556. Trump says:

    Can’t wrap your head around real numbers, so now you fall back on tripe like “only PA suburbs worth living in.”

    That was not your original post, retard Bitter. You original was “The seething hatred of Trump has not diminished in the suburbs.”

    So you change your tune to “only PA suburbs worth living in.”

  557. CG says:

    It’s 40 degrees in Salt Lake City today and Mitt Romney is going to be their Senator. I have never been more tempted to move to Utah.

  558. Trump says:

    No wonder you got fired.

    Who needs a third-rate lawyer with no concept of logic or reality?

  559. lisab says:

    when al gore was born there were an estimated 7,000 polar bears on the planet

    today, only 30,000 remain

  560. Bitterlaw says:

    mnw – I know why I was let go. Trump can F off. I hope he moves to The suburban paradise of Harrisburg. Maybe he would also like “suburban” Pottsville.

  561. Trump says:

    And I love your “zzzzzzzzz” when you don’t have any point, retard Bitter.

    That explains your firing.

  562. Bitterlaw says:

    I was fired. Then I was hired for $20k more. The shame!

  563. CG says:

    A couple of weeks ago, I challenged SoccerTrump on his suburban claims. It is very clear from the election results that traditionally Republican white-collar suburbs moved away from Republicans while traditionally Democrat blue collar suburbs and other areas moved away from them.

    In regards to 2008, it might just be that Obama was more popular in the suburbs then than he was in 2012 or that Hillary was in 2016, but specifically, as someone who spent a lot of time canvassing the suburbs at the time, Palin was a big drag on McCain in those areas. I believe she might have gotten him voters in other parts of the country though.

  564. Todd McCain says:

    I got zero problem with Mitt Romney.

  565. CG says:

    Let’s see how many people will still have “no problems” with Romney when he continues to speak the truth about DJT.

  566. Trump says:

    “Ooooh, my suburb is better than your suburb. It’s the only suburb in PA. Everything else is rural or large city.”

    What logic!

    Who wants an employee with zero logic, and innumerate too?

  567. Tina says:

    When quittens was the nominee did we get calls from mr un- conservative about a brokered convention?

  568. Bitterlaw says:

    A 20% reduction in the firm’s cases and the fact that I was not an elderly woman, a veteran, or the father of a 4 month old with a wife who did not work outside the house explains my firing.

  569. Tina says:

    Hillary Clinton
    Hillary Clinton
    @HillaryClinton
    Families across America had to start 2018 worried that their kids wouldn’t have health care. Failing to act now shows the true face of Republicans & their donor-driven immoral agenda. You control the Senate agenda @SenateMajLdr. Enough is enough.

    The jebots candidate has tweeted.

  570. Mr.Vito says:

    Also, Clinton basically equaled Obama in Philly, but Trump got more vote than Romney.

  571. Bitterlaw says:

    Guru should tell the residents of Harrisburg that they live in a suburb. They would be surprised.

  572. Mr.Vito says:

    Apparently no one is interested in the actual results.

  573. Trump says:

    Retard Bitter doudbling down on stupidity.

    What else does the moron have?

    “Can’t wrap your head around real numbers, so now you fall back on tripe like “only PA suburbs worth living in.”

    That was not your original post, retard Bitter. You original was “The seething hatred of Trump has not diminished in the suburbs.”

    So you change your tune to “only PA suburbs worth living in.”

  574. Trump says:

    Actual results make retard Bitter’s head hurt.

  575. Trump says:

    Actual results show the “seething hate” for McCain.

  576. Bitterlaw says:

    Mr. Vito – The rural areas gave Trump his victory in PA. He lost ground in the Philly suburbs (where most suburban voters live). Don’t tell Guru. He thinks that Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties were Trump’s base despite losing all of them.

  577. mnw says:

    Romney would hardly be the first GOP Senator to criticize Trump. Why do the simple-minded trolls think that would be a big deal?

    And btw, watch Romney race like a crazy man to mend his fences with PDT.

  578. lisab says:

    i don’t get how the time zones work …

    austrailia was in 2018 way before new york

    as was new zealand,

    but midway and hawaii were in 2018 way after nyc even though midway is relatively close to new zealand

    and robbie and cg are still in 2016 …

    how does that work?

  579. Bitterlaw says:

    They are the only PA suburbs worth living in. I would know since I live in PA.

  580. lisab says:

    Apparently no one is interested in the actual results.

  587. Tina says:

    Quittens is no spring chicken. Lets hope he finishes the race this time and does not quit.

  588. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina’s hatred of Romney is like Robbie’s hatred of Trump.

    She says Romney quit but never says how or when he did that?

  589. NYCmike says:

    “Let’s see how many people will still have “no problems” with Romney when he continues to speak the truth about DJT.”

    -“CG”,

    What legislation passed this year would Romney have voted for/against compared to Hatch?

    What legislation passed this year and that Trump signed would Romney have voted against?

  590. CG says:

    What’s wrong with remembering the past?

    We certainly should remember 1776 (as the Tea Party Patriots like to) and other points in our history.

    The year of 2016 saw a situation in which both major parties nominated unacceptable choices. I hope such an occurrence does not repeat itself or that if it does, there will be other more viable options for people to take rather than violating their conscience.

  591. NYCmike says:

    “Tina’s hatred of Romney is like Robbie’s hatred of Trump.”

    -That is a ridiculous statement.

    Read her comment:

    Tina says:
    January 2, 2018 at 2:25 pm

    THE only one with issues with quittens is rottie.

    Quittens has rino tendencies. But, if he gets the nomination, he would be a plus vs a drat.

    Hatch is more conservative.

  592. NYCmike says:

    Let me amend that question:

    “What legislation passed this year and that Trump, the UNACCEPTABLE CANDIDATE, signed, would Romney have voted against?

  593. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – Tina has never said how Romney quit. I have waited for 5 years for an explanation. I can wait some more.

  594. Tina says:

    Bl is having a rough day at the office.

    The comments about him being fired are not appropriate.

    Anyway, just to recap, romney has rino tendencies. Hatch is more conservative, both are old, however..

    Romney is better than ed mcmuffin or a drat.

  595. NYCmike says:

    “Tina has never said how Romney quit.”

    -AND?

    Your statement compared her “hate of Romney” with Robbie’s hatred of Trump.

    The former is easily disproved by the comment I copied and pasted, while the latter is proven whenever Robbie comes back from his cruise (along with “CG”).

  596. lisab says:

    More than 1,000 cars torched in France during New Year’s Eve

    Mr. Vito – The rural areas gave Trump his victory in PA. He lost ground in the Philly suburbs (where most suburban voters live). Don’t tell Guru. He thinks that Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties were Trump’s base despite losing all of them.”

    Actual Pennsylvania suburbs – Trump 52-44

    The retard still clinging to Philly. No wonder.

    The “seething hate” for McCain is palpable.

  598. Tina says:

    I voted for quittens in 2012,bl. I was not the one that called for a brokered convention or was glad that he lost.

    You would have to refer those statements to the concerned troll. The same troll who is worried about the fbi because the latest meme is that trump hates the fbi.

  599. Trump says:

    McCain – suburbs – 48-50.

    Why do suburbanites hate McCain?

  600. CG says:

    There wasn’t much legislation to vote on this year because things are so dysfunctional under Trump, but congrats to all involved for getting the tax cut thing done. I hope it benefits the country and I think it just might. Whether it will hurt politically or not will remain to be seen.

    I care more that Romney will vote the right way in the next Congress, as it is clear that Trump now intends to move to the left on things like a massive infrastructure boondoggle.

    The main contrast between Romney and Trump of course came as it related to Trump’s despicable remarks about Charlottesville and how Romney eloquently and forcefully took to him to task for that. Though in fairness to Orrin Hatch, he also made his displeasure with Trump’s remarks known in his own way.

  601. Tina says:

    The same troll is not concerned with the 2nd in command at fbi doing the following

    Advocating for his wife for congressional office using a gubment computer, an apparent hatch act violation.

    The same official stating if we f flynn, we f trump.

    The same official who failed to recuse himself until one week before the her thigness matter resolved.

    The same official who goes by the name andy and met with pete the cheat and the mistressm when the term insurance policy was discussed.

  602. CG says:

    This past Congress though, Romney and Trump certainly would have parted ways on the Russian sanction vote, which Trump opposed and all but two Republican Senators supported.

  603. Tina says:

    The largest tax cuts plus the 16 to 1 regulation cut, the largest evah, will be pluses.

    “but corey lives in chicago”

    Oh gotcha. And Roy Moore thinks we are living in 1845.

  606. Trump says:

    The NeverTrumpers are hoping Romney is their voice.

    Wasn’t this loser the one of the biggest NT before?

    Is it 2016 still?

  607. CG says:

    I wonder who was calling Hatch “more conservative” when he was working with Ted Kennedy, his closest friend in the Senate, etc.

    Romney and Hatch are both conservative. The only difference is that Hatch in the past few months has felt the need to kiss Trump’s ass rhetorically because he feared the end of his career was coming and he wanted to hang on. Now, that Hatch has come to terms with his time in the Senate ending, I imagine he might be more honest about Trump.

  608. Tina says:

    It s clear that the obama wh weaponized the fbi and doj. It is also clear that comedy phuqed up. It is also clear that comedy leaked classified information. No wonder he melted down in late december on twitter.

  609. Tina says:

    Romeny is for amnesty, a porker, and gave ma obumblercare light. No conservative compared to hatch,

    Ar this point, mitchie needs to startt shutting down the muh russian investigations, 3separate ones in the senate.

    Ryan needs to do the same in the house.

    Tell the drats to phuq off on muh russia

  613. NYCmike says:

    “I care more that Romney will vote the right way in the next Congress, as it is clear that Trump now intends to move to the left on things like a massive infrastructure boondoggle.”

    -Trump is back in charge of writing legislation.

    Republican Congress has NOTHING to do with it.

    The federal gubment has 16000 less employees than under obumbler.

    especially since he won’t be running for president again

  618. CG says:

    He said he wanted to veto it but clearly did not have the votes, so he said he couldn’t.

    Why didn’t he man up and veto it anyway?

  619. CG says:

    There really is no major issue (immigration or anything else) where there is a noticeable policy difference between Hatch and Romney. I think Orrin Hatch has been a fine Senator for decades, but it is time for him to go.

    Pre-Trump though, the anti-Hatch voices on the right were quite loud that he was a RINO, etc. But because Bannon and Trump wanted him around (just because they don’t want Romney in there), then suddenly Hatch is a MAGA hero.

  620. Bitterlaw says:

    A 2% difference between McCain and Obama shows seething hatred?

  621. NYCmike says:

    “CG”,

    Since it is already a done deal, I figured that this “Yes” or “No” question could easily be answered, EVEN BY YOU.

    I guess not.

  622. Tina says:

    So, no proof that he opposed it. Just psycho babble?

  623. Trump says:

    Well, to a moron like you, a 52-44 Trump lead is “seething hatred”, retard.

  624. CG says:

    Trump while signing the legislation said he did not agree with it. He talks about how he doesn’t want to make Putin mad.

    So, he shouldn’t have signed it then. Let them have overridden his veto, which would have happened.

    One thing is clear, going back to 2012, unlike Barack Obama and Donald Trump, Mitt Romney doesn’t care if Vladimir Putin is mad at him.

  625. Tina says:

    Romney is 70, he wikk be 80 with 2 terrms, or older than hatch at the end of his 2nd term,

    I hope he is more conservative than when he was ma governor,

    I hope he can finish a campaign this time since he let the cnn groupie reporter do him in.

  626. NYCmike says:

    Mike Lee is better than both Hatch or Romney.

    How about that Bridgewater fella that Lee came in 2nd (with Bennett 3rd), but then beat him head-to-head?

    I have heard good things about him. If he is younger than Mitt, maybe he is the better choice.

    Or, how about Mia Love? Can she win state-wide? She would probably be better than Romney, if she can win state-wide.

  627. Trump says:

    And speaking of retards, has the other one, Robbie, found out what Mueller has “used” the GSA transition emails for yet?

  628. CG says:

    NYC, what is your “yes or no” question.

    I have tried to answer your questions, unlike you who refuses to say whether or not you think statutory rape should be a crime.

  629. Tina says:

    Trump only warned of consequences. Pooty poot cut the embassy staff.

    Trump subsequently stated thanks, we were going to cut the payroll anyway.

  630. Tina says:

    Mia love woukd be an upgrade over quittens and much younger. She could hold the seat for a long time, in fact.

    Quittens is ok, but he is not conserrvative.

  631. NYCmike says:

    “CG”,

    Got it.

    The answer is YES, he signed it.

    The rest of your blather is just that….bla bla blather…..

  632. Bitterlaw says:

    Guru – I was always talking about the Philly burbs and you know that. Do you want to pretend you know more about PA than I do?

  633. Tina says:

    The 9000 sealed indictments iappear to be related to a massive human trafficking crackdown,

    Mute 43and obumbler 44aka bushbama did nothing about this.

  634. NYCmike says:

    “I have tried to answer your questions, unlike you who refuses to say whether or not you think statutory rape should be a crime.”

    -Statutory rape is, and should be a crime.

    Should Republicans make the “age of consent” an issue which is brought up by their candidates running for the United States Senate.

    Did Trump sign the Russian sanctions legislation?

  635. Trump says:

    No, retard, I don’t know what you were talking about.

    You said “suburbs”, with no qualifications.

    I don’t read your mind, such as it is.

    All together in one place:

    -Statutory rape is, and should be a crime.

    Should Republicans make the “age of consent” an issue which is brought up by their candidates running for the United States Senate.

    Did Trump sign the Russian sanctions legislation?

    One more: which liberal policies did Trump implement this past year, either thru Executive Order, or thru legislation passed thru Congress?

  646. Tina says:

    And drat trump tried to do away with obumblercare. Weird alliances, huh bl.

    A drat against obumblercare, against regulations, against open ended warfare in the me, and for tax cuts.

    Its bizarro world, aint it?

  647. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    My best guess is that Mitt Romney will not run for the Utah Senate seat, but front for one of his sons to do so.

    Also, Robbie has been very boring on his return to HHR. There is no new material from him. Very disappointing!

    yeah … romney spent millions of his own money fighting gay marriage in massachusetts

    he is actually quite conservative.

    i think he is also embarassed about the dossier

  650. CG says:

    He signed it while complaining about it and that he had to do it. That is fairly unprecedented for any President. (Constitutionally, he did not have to sign it. He could have vetoed it or just left it alone (aka a pocket veto.)

    I imagine that if Obama tried to have something both ways or complain that someone was forcing him to do something he did not want to do, we all would have laughed at him.

  651. Trump says:

    Retard Bitterlaw thinks only Philly has suburbs.

    I would be bitter too, if that was the level of my understanding.

  652. Tina says:

    And rottie overlooks the legal opinions of two prominent attorneys,who by their own admission, are not pro trump.

  653. CG says:

    NYC, are you now willing to admit to statutory rape should be a crime? If so, I am glad. Two weeks ago, you refused to do so wholeheartedly. Glad you came to your senses finally.

    Yes, Republicans should make state “age of consent” an issue if they are running against an opponent who is an extremist on the matter or a suspected child predator himself/herself.

  654. Bitterlaw says:

    Other PA cities have suburbs. Just really small and not worth living in.

  655. lisab says:

    Should Republicans make the “age of consent” an issue
    ——————–
    most states had an age of consent of 13 until relatively recently, when they have moved it to 16

    prior to the 1970’s 13 year olds that got pregnant could not get abortions and would often get married

    judges used to give men the option of getting married or joining the army!

  656. NYCmike says:

    You can copy and paste my question, and then put YES or NO after each one.
    PRETTY SIMPLE.

    -Statutory rape is, and should be a crime.

    Should Republicans make the “age of consent” an issue which is brought up by their candidates running for the United States Senate?

    Did Trump sign the Russian sanctions legislation?

    One more: which liberal policies did Trump implement this past year, either thru Executive Order, or thru legislation passed thru Congress?

  657. Trump says:

    I don’t define “suburbs”, moron.

    You have trouble with exit polls, go take it up with them.

    There is more to “suburbs’ than just Philly suburbs.

    Anyone with mind above retard level would know that.

  658. CG says:

    Getting out of TPP was a liberal policy that Trump enacted via executive order.

    It’s exactly what Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren would have done.

  659. Tina says:

    The next thing that muh russian hoaxer, rottie, will spin is this

    “The ig did not bring any charges,”

    The ig office cannot charge anybody. They can only refer any matters to sessions, or to a separate special counsel, if one is enacted.

    Any hatch act violations, however, would be done in house.

  660. lisab says:

    538. Orrin Hatch to retire.Here comes Mitt Romney. Eat it Trumpers.

    Don’t forget that Trump was favorable to Romney being his Secretary of State, but could not appoint him because of opposition from some of his supporters.

    Almost two months ago, indicated that Hatch would retire. Romney is likely to win with over 70% of the vote in 2018. His candidacy may even help Heller in Nevada.

    My hunch is you my see a lot of cooperation between Trump and Romney.

  662. NYCmike says:

    “Yes, Republicans should make state “age of consent” an issue if they are running against an opponent who is an extremist on the matter or a suspected child predator himself/herself.”

    -The question did not include anything about their opponent.

    The question was only about the Republican candidate.

    CAN YOU READ?

  663. CG says:

    I’ve answered every one of your questions.

  664. Tina says:

    Quittens is for tpp.

    “Bitterlaw says:

    Other PA cities have suburbs. Just really small and not worth living in.”

    The retard BL tries to pass off his phobias as facts.

  666. CG says:

    And I said “yes” and explained why I said “yes.”

    Still not sure why this is such a touchy issue for you.

    What Republican do you feel has been wrong on age of consent in a campaign?

  667. lisab says:

    My hunch is you my see a lot of cooperation between Trump and Romney.
    ————————————

    romney bought into the dossier that mccain gave him

    he was pretty embarassed about it and apologized to trump personally

  668. Trump says:

    “His candidacy may even help Heller in Nevada.”

    His candidacy didn’t even help him.

  669. Tina says:

    I do not think trump hates romney, or vice versa. After all, romney was in the running for sos, but tillerson is much better,

    Tillerson projects strength and competency, imdo not see these with quittens.

  670. Tina says:

    Another one who bought in was goober. Ot took goober a yearr to realize the dossier was fake and the fbi did aomething wrong re the dossier

    They went to the fisa court telling the court that the dossier was true when in may of 2017, comedy testified it was unverifiable.

  671. NYCmike says:

    “Almost two months ago, indicated that Hatch would retire. Romney is likely to win with over 70% of the vote in 2018. His candidacy may even help Heller in Nevada. My hunch is you my see a lot of cooperation between Trump and Romney.”

    -Well done, SDC.

    Comments like this make sense, much more so than those made by “Isaac” and “Gopher”.

  672. Tina says:

    Goober is now concerned with the fbi handling of the dossier. Goober expressed those concerns a few days ago.

    Where goober erred is his statement that mueller cannot investigate the dossier because it is not under his jurisdiction,

    Goober shoukd be embarrased.

  673. lisab says:

    who is goober?

  674. NYCmike says:

    “What Republican do you feel has been wrong on age of consent in a campaign?”

    -Not one.

    The question is “Should Republicans make the “age of consent” an issue which is brought up by their candidates running for the United States Senate?”

    Apply it to whomever is running in 2018. It does not matter what their opponent thinks at this time, since there is not one Democrat who has made it an issue.

  675. NYCmike says:

    I answered your question, very simply.

    You can copy and paste my question, and then put YES or NO after each one.
    PRETTY SIMPLE.

    -Statutory rape is, and should be a crime.

    Should Republicans make the “age of consent” an issue which is brought up by their candidates running for the United States Senate?

    Is that the other pressure?

  678. Tina says:

    Lisab, you of all peeps should know the nicknames,

    Anyway. Goober is senator graham from sc.

  679. NYCmike says:

    In regards to TPP, I would chalk that up to a similar occurrence as MD pointed out with Reagan (the ONLY one, mind you), that being the TVA opposition which Reagan dropped.

    Trump’s position most likely gave him more votes in several states, states which Romney and McCain had LOST.

    Romney would hardly be the first GOP Senator to criticize Trump. Why do the simple-minded trolls think that would be a big deal?
    And btw, watch Romney race like a crazy man to mend his fences with PDT.

    – Why would a good, honest man want to grovel to a piece of crap like Trump? He won’t need the Trump morons to help him get elected. He’ll win 70% of the vote without Trump’s help.

    What legislation passed this year would Romney have voted for/against compared to Hatch?
    What legislation passed this year and that Trump signed would Romney have voted against?

    – At least NYCmike is being honest that he doesn’t care about the quality of the person. I guess that’s why he still supports Chris McDaniel and some of the other buffoons who cost us safe seats.

    I have heard good things about him. If he is younger than Mitt, maybe he is the better choice.
    Or, how about Mia Love? Can she win state-wide? She would probably be better than Romney, if she can win state-wide.

    he was pretty embarassed about it and apologized to trump personally

    – I see you’re in a race with Tina to the nuthouse. What other totally incorrect conspiracies have you for us? It was St. Rubio’s dark money pac that started the dossier.

    Ok, rubios dark money pac started the dossier.

    But stay clear.

  745. Tina says:

    You mde the statement bout the dossier being funded by st rubios dark pac.

    Lol, conspircy loon.

  746. Trump says:

    The Washington Free Beacon first paid Fusion GPS to dig dirt on Trump.

    After the primaries, the DNC picked up Fusion GPS, and FGPS then picked up Steele to compile the dossier.

    What does Rubio or his pac have to do with the dossier, retard Robbie?

  747. Tina says:

    – I see you’re in a race with Tina to the nuthouse. What other totally incorrect conspiracies have you for us? It was St. Rubio’s dark money pac that started the dossier.

    Lol and false.

  748. NYCmike says:

    “CG” and Robbie,

    How is it that both of you decided to show up together, AGAIN, after not being around for several weeks?

  749. Robbie says:

    Trump says:
    January 2, 2018 at 4:45 pm
    When Hillary lost, the retard Robbie vanished from HHR for over 8 months.

    – Umm, not true guy who wants his mouth to serve as a trump fecal collector.

    I took a nice long break after the election and then came back when Trump picked Neil Gorsuch in late January.

    Try harder next time, soccerf@ckwad.

  750. lisab says:

    you are the conspiracy theorist robbie …

    romney will simply be another gop senator if he runs

    he will neither be a trump ally, nor another mccain

    he will be a conservative and go against trump when trump does something he doesn’t like, nothing more nor less.

  751. CG says:

    I had no realistic way of finding it NYC, so I tried to give you the benefit of the doubt and asked you to simply confirm an easy question.

    You refused to do so, until today. Obviously, this might have been eating at you a bit.

  752. Trump says:

    And, what information from the GSA transition emails has Mueller “used” (your words, retard Robbie) that would warrant a law-suit?

  753. Tina says:

    No r pax or r group started the dossier.

    Steele was hired in may or june by her thighness.

    It was the devils money and your alky that funded the dossier, Her Thighness.

  754. CG says:

    Do you have memory issues NYC? (if so you have my true sympathy as it is a serious matter) but I was clearly posting here in late December.

  755. Tina says:

    Please provide me a link that st rubios daekmpac or whatever funded steelem who is the author of the dossier.

    Link please.

  756. NYCmike says:

    “Obviously, this might have been eating at you a bit.”

    -I do have memory issues…..I once remember thinking that a person elected as a President in the Republican Party, and acting pretty much exclusively as a Republican President, would get the support of supposed Republicans…..but you, MD, Robbie, Max Boot, and some others are making me question my memories.

    Of course, there are some people who did NOT vote for Trump that have actually made note of his many conservative and/or Republican-type accomplishments……CRAZY PEOPLE, I GUESS!

  767. Tina says:

    Both showed up at the same time…

    750. – Right. Read a poll. Utah is not Trump land. That’s why so many voted for McMullin and even Hillary.”

    Hillary pulled all of 27.6% of the vote in Utah in 2016. The Democrats in the special congressional election on November 7, 2017 pulled only 25.6% of the vote.

    Utah is strongly Republican an independent; Trump’s style puts them off. But he will still win Utah in 2020. Polls show 75% approval for Trump among Republicans

    As lisab had it right in post #792.

  798. CG says:

    Why does it matter what might have been?

    I would have disliked a ton of what Hillary would have done and said, just like I do with Trump.

    What you don’t seem to understand is that even if I agreed with every single thing Trump said and done, I would still find him a vile person and dangerous to my country for that reason. Principles go beyond issues. I know that makes me “sanctimonious.”

    Losers whining about principles.

    Not your principles, certainly.

  806. NYCmike says:

    “I would have disliked a ton of what Hillary would have done and said, just like I do with Trump.”

    -You mentioned TPP.

    What other policy actions/GOVERNING PRINCIPLES do you disagree with? Anything?

    Hillary would have governed in a DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT MANNER, with a DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT SET OF PRINCIPLES, and that is “What you don’t seem to understand”.

  807. CG says:

    Never remotely said that. HHR is often a place where people say what they think you meant instead of what you actually said.

    Firing Comey. His statements about Russia. The Muslim ban. Saying that America “does a lot of killing.” What he said after Charlottesville. Many of the people he hired to work for him. Deliberately omitting Jews when talking about the Holocaust. His desire for a big government infrastructure boondoggle. Threatening freedom of the press, etc. etc. It’s a long list.

    But yes, thanks to Mitch McConnell we got Gorsuch and thanks to Schumer, he made a statement about Jerusalem. Things could be worse!!

  813. NYCmike says:

    “We will leave it to the HHR jury, Corey. You said it.”

    -Definitely.

  814. Trump says:

    So he makes morons like Corey and the retards unhappy.

    Who could ask for anything more?

  815. CG says:

    I offered a hefty cash prize to anyone who could find the post.

    Everything I said was a comparison between Hillary and Obama and how she was less principled than him and how the Clintons had a history of being flexible for political reasons. “Moderate” was never used. In her recent book, she blasts Sanders and his supporters (and Obama at times) and indicates her contempt for them and their calls for ideological purity.

  868. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Robbie, did you support Romney in 2012?

  869. Bitterlaw says:

    Good news. I just took 3 online test for depression. I only have 11 out of 12 signs. I would have had 12 but I don’t have any hobbies so I can’t lose interest in them.

    That is a relief.

  870. Bitterlaw says:

    Don’t even bother. I would be so disappointed in myself if I actually saw a doctor that it would be worse.

    I will just annoy you guys instead.

  871. Bitterlaw says:

    Good news. I ruled out post-partum depression. Of course, I have not lost all of the baby weight I gained when my wife was pregnant 20 years ago.

  872. Bitterlaw says:

    After more than 6 years, my Blackberry is dying. I don’t want to have a phone where I have to type on the screen. I guess I will be stuck getting an iPhone like the rest of my family.

  873. jason says:

    “jason is the one that said Hillary would be better on foreign policy than Trump.”

    -And he was clearly wrong…..”

    No, I said I preferred Hillary on some foreign policy and trade issues.

    As I have posted before, the things I disagreed with Trump on the campaign have not happened, Trump has not pulled out of NATO, ended Nafta, imposed 50% tariffs on China, taken an isolationist posture on Israel, the war on terror, etc.

    If he had done any of these things, I would have been right, because Hillary would have done none of them.

    Oh, and GFY.

  874. jason says:

    Everything I said was a comparison between Hillary and Obama and how she was less principled than him and how the Clintons had a history of being flexible for political reasons. “Moderate” was never used. In her recent book, she blasts Sanders and his supporters (and Obama at times) and indicates her contempt for them and their calls for ideological purity”

    Lies, lies and more lies. This is all drivel and garbage. Corey once again proves he is a pathological liar.

    Despite decades of evidence that Hillary is a hard core leftist, even more to the left than her husband, you pretended she was a compromiser and non-ideological. You may not have used the word moderate, but you certainly defended her as being given to compromise, which is a complete lie, Hillary never compromised on anything.

    Hillary’s platform was way to the left of Obama’s, a committed socialist.

    All this to justify your position that somehow a corrupt hard line left con woman was “better” than Trump.

    You and Wobbie can continuing to live in a fantasy world where Jeb Bush is a viable candidate for President, the rest of us have chosen to move on.

  875. mnw says:

    Oh, and GFY… particularly.

    I’ve spent a lot of time today defending myself against Wobbles’ willful misreading of something I posted.

  876. jason says:

    “Robbie says:
    October 8, 2016 at 8:49 pm
    The down ballot races are going to be a real concern going forward because it seems clear Trump/Rudy/Christie have decided Trump should trash the party that nominated him. My guess is Trump will actively campaign against anyone who has called for him to leave the race. There is no surviving this. We are well beyond the Mark Foley scandal. This crisis is every bit as big as Watergate was in 1974. If you want to say I’m exaggerating, fine. I just don’t see how this doesn’t end horribly”

    “In Internet slang, a troll (/tro?l, tr?l/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting quarrels or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion,[3] often for the troll’s amusement.”

    This is from Wikipedia. Sound like anyone here?

  888. Tina says:

    I see no links to my two requests from the Jebot, as expected.

  889. Trump says:

    Suburbanites must hate John McCain, who lost 48-50 there.

    So the retard Bitter would posit. If he knew his way around numbers.

  890. jason says:

    I can probably find the one where he said Rubio was the only viable candidate, pre-Trump.

    Or the one where he said Republicans were so stupid they were voting for a liberal Democrat.

    Or when he said he didn’t care Trump was going to lose, as long as he destroyed the Republican Party.

    Or when he predicted the Senate was lost, the battle was for the House.

    It’s all there but its now hard to find without a date.

  891. Bitterlaw says:

    Guru thinks any place with up to 50,000 people is a suburb. He has never been to dumps like Harrisburg or Hazleton.

    I guess he knows more people in Pennsylvania than I do.

  892. Bitterlaw says:

    Jason – Did you know that Harrisburg is a suburb? Guru told me.

  893. Trump says:

    The retard Bitterlaw makes cra* up, the backtracks like a monkey when called.

    No wonder he can’t hold a job.

    Fuc&tard thinks only Philly has suburbs.

    Stupid as*wipe.

  894. Trump says:

    If anyone was as retarded as Bitter, he would be depressed too.

  895. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    893. “After more than 6 years, my Blackberry is dying. I don’t want to have a phone where I have to type on the screen. I guess I will be stuck getting an iPhone like the rest of my family.”

    The hardships of modern life. A couple of centuries ago we would be going outside in the winter weather with our gun, hoping to shoot something so could feed our family that night. Might also have had to chop some firewood too, so we did not freeze to death that night.

You can visit these places if you go in the daytime and are heavily armed. The rest of the city is a no man’s land, enter at your own risk.

    The FBI also confirmed that a key witness, a computer technician who deleted Clinton emails from her server in March 2015 after a congressional subpoena had been issued for them, originally lied to the FBI during his interviews, memos show. The witness’s name was redacted from documents released by the FBI but he was identified as an employee of a computer firm that helped maintained Clinton’s email server.

    His admission of false statements came one day after the Comey statement was already being drafted, investigators told The Hill.

    The computer employee originally told the FBI in a February 2016 interview that he did not recall making any deletions from Clinton’s server in March 2015, FBI records show.

    Of course he is, he sells guaca bowls.

    Not only that, he is friends with Romney, whose father was born in Mexico, and his wife is Hispanic.

    But he is white, so according to Corey, he will never be a real Hispanic. According to Corey, if you are not brown, have a big mustache, wear a sombrero and shout Viva Mexico every hour on the hour you can’t be Hispanic.

    2. I think it is possible that Robbie and CG are the same person

    You cra-cra Cow.

  976. Cash Cow TM says:

    OK.

    So to prove that Robbie and CG are NOT the same person both need to begin typing a post here that is the entire Declaration of Independence. “They” “both” begin typing their HHR post at exactly the same time (say midnight tonight) and then immediately post it here when finished.

    We can tell something by the times the “CG” post and the “Robbie” post are posted!

I guess the trains are getting frozen in the cold. Anyway, finally she is on a train now. We ubered her some coffee and salad from McDonalds to her at the train station.

  979. Paul says:

    If Trump can get the trains to run on time, I might vote for him…… nah. Still wouldn’t 🙂

  980. Trump says:

    Trains are for commies.

    Trump should shut them down.

  981. Paul says:

    Has anyone, ever, made trains run on time, Paul?

    I know that is nirvana for commies like you.

  985. Cash Cow TM says:

    I think poster Trump and Paul might be the same person.

    They often both show up at the same time.

  986. Paul says:

    They usually work alright. It is convenient that my daughter’s school is on the route of the Zephyr. I guess they just don’t work below zero for some reason. I don’t work below zero either for that matter.

    LOL…. MSM admits EPA started shrinking under Obama but Trump is destroying the world.

    “More than 200 scientists, 96 environmental specialists and nine department directors have left the agency, according to the report. The majority of the employees will not be replaced.

    The exodus partly reflects discontent with the Trump administration’s policies and the president’s appointees to lead the agency.

    The cuts also appear to be apart of a trend that began during the Obama administration, when budget restraints put a squeeze on the agency.”

  991. jason says:

    Paul, when your fellow Marxists take over the trains will run on time.

    Of course, they will be crappy trains and the party officials will ride in limos, but they will run on time.

  999. NYCmike says:

    On radio this morning, commentators were speaking about Romney being an anti-Trump figure in the Senate…..I ask again:

    What legislation, which was passed by Congress, and signed into law by Trump this year, would Romney have voted against?

    Why is Romney being portrayed as anti-Trump, when the position of Senator of Utah, besides being an advocate for Utah, will most likely be another supporter of the President?

  1000. Bitterlaw says:

I’m sure he’ll do so since he’s consistent – anyone here who supports Trump on any topic is a Trump Chump, so supporting him with an actual vote must make any Senator a Trump Chump, too, eh?

  1008. Bitterlaw says:

    DW – Most don’t live it every day.

  1009. Chicon says:

    Bitter, since there’s no such thing as depression, why don’t you just think happy thoughts?

  1010. DW says:

    1031 – agreed…but I think most would be better off if they did. But human history is fully of people who think graveyards are just for other people who didn’t make it.

    If we live in light of the fact that a tomb awaits us, we tend to live better lives.

  1011. NYCmike says:

    Another thing heard on the radio, this was last night, driving home. Host was re-playing clips from the speech PRESIDENT Trump gave at the United Nations last September (or was it October?), where he spoke directly to Iran, and the other countries of the world.

    Senator Mitt Romney -(R) Utah (70 years old)

    -or-

    Senator Mia Love – (R) Utah (42 years old)

  1023. jason says:

    Groups that are supposedly pro-women, and who supported Hillary for President, are ODDLY silent about Iran…..like MD, “CG”, Robbie, and Author.”

    Pro-women? How about pro-gay?

    The same people that whine about requiring people to use bathrooms according to their gender because it “discriminates” are silent about the Iranians throwing gay people from rooftops.

  1024. jason says:

    I like Mia Love.

    I like Romney better. 70 is not that old, he could easily serve 2 or 3 terms.

  1025. jason says:

    Mia is a good future candidate, but let’s not compare her resume to Romney’s.

    I just don’t understand why people like “CG”, Robbie, and Author are so happy about it.

    The trolls think Romney will be the new leader of anti-Trump Republicans, & that the Senate will be a great loudspeaker for Romney’s anti-Trump rhetoric.

    Fantasy Island, of course, but that’s why the trolls are so into Romney.

  1032. Chicon says:

    I suspect either Mitt or Mia would win the election if nominated – neither is a deadender.

    I don’t think age matters either, because Utah will elect another Republican if Mitt checks out early.

    Given these things, I’m not too concerned about the resume of either. I care more about how either will vote on issues. I’ll take the more consistent conservative, whoever that is.

    i agree, some think romney will be another mccain and block trump’s platform because he does not like trump.

    i doubt that would happen. romney, unlike mccain, is a nice man. even his political opponents in massachusetts thought he was a decent human being — although perhaps misguided on gay marriage.

    i am pretty sure he does not like trump as a person. he is also embarassed about buying into the dossier and did apologize to trump directly. both can be true.

    i think he will act in a way that the people of utah would want him to act on any given subject. he won’t just oppose trump like mccain.

    also, keep in mind he probably wants to set up his son as a future ut senator, so he won’t be rocking the boat.

  1036. jason says:

  1037. NYCmike says:

    mnw,

    I guess that is it, but like I said, I don’t get it.

    Every piece of legislation that Trump signed this year would have been voted FOR by Mitt…..isn’t that correct?

  1038. jason says:

    Mitt Romney would be much more advantageous to the party, if that is the question.

    There is no comparison on who is best qualified.

    Mia may be an up and coming star, but Romney’s accomplishments and experience both in the private and public sector far outweigh hers.

    Maybe in 12 years when Romney retires.

    Until then, let’s go with the best qualified person.

  1039. jason says:

    Bannon is a deadender, and this is what deadender’;s do.

    But the lesson is never learned.

  1040. Wes says:

    Wow! Bannon’s only out for himself!

    Who couldn’t guess that even without recent events?

    Now I think it’s pretty clear why Bannon wants Tarkanian, Ward, and McDaniel to run for Senate and backed Moore’s disastrous campaign in Alabama.

  1041. NYCmike says:

    jason,

    Romney, compared to Mia Love, makes for BETTER OPTICS AND STORY-LINE, and is therefore more advantageous to the Republican Party as a whole?

    Is that your opinion?

    I definitely disagree with that.

  1042. Wes says:

    I like Mitt Romney, but we don’t need a 70-year-old Senate freshman. Mia Love is a perfectly acceptable young candidate.

  1043. jason says:

    .Every piece of legislation that Trump signed this year would have been voted FOR by Mitt…”

    LOL

    Translation: LITMUS TESTS FOR EVERY CANDIDATE. ONLY THE 100% PURE WILL BE ACCEPTED.

  1046. jason says:

    Romney, compared to Mia Love, makes for BETTER OPTICS AND STORY-LINE, and is therefore more advantageous to the Republican Party as a whole?”

    Optics? She is better looking than he is, but probably a lot of women think he is good looking.

    I don’t think Romney will have problems with “optics”.

    Story line? I prefer Romney’s story line of great accomplishments in both the public and private sector.

    Next question?

  1047. Wes says:

    Oh, great. Mikey clearly thinks Mia Love can lose; otherwise he wouldn’t be backing her.

    I may have to research things and possibly change my opnion on Love’s viability.

  1048. jason says:

    So you guys who have been defending Bannon, are you still on this deadender bandwagon?

    And those that were critical of him, are you now smitten?

    Stay tuned.

  1049. jason says:

    His deadender bandwagon.

  1050. Wes says:

    I will agree Romney has great private sector accomplishments.

    What has he accomplished in the public sector besides being a nearly powerless Governor and losing two bids to unseat incumbents?

  1051. Wes says:

    Bannon is still an ass. He just has decided to attack the person he made his political name off, thus becoming a hypocritical ass.

  1052. jason says:

    he more things change, the more they stay the same.”

    Hey you brought back your stupid litmus tests, obviously you haven’t changed.

    “Every piece of legislation that Trump signed this year would have been voted FOR by Mitt…..isn’t that correct?”

    THE LITMUS TEST IS BAAAAACCCCCCKKKK!

  1053. NYCmike says:

    jason,

    Read the comments again, please.

    My point is that Robbie, “CG”, Author, and other #NeverTrumpers have their panties dripping because they believe Romney will be a strong anti-Trump voice in the Senate…….and I am trying to figure out why that is the case, because I don’t see where Romney would have voted AGAINST anything that Trump would have signed this year.

    Do you know of any legislation passed this year that Romney and Trump differed on?

  1054. jason says:

    ATTENTION GOP SENATE CANDIDATES.

    YOU MUST VOTE FOR EVERY BILL THAT TRUMP WILL SIGN.

    YOU WILL BE 100% LITMUS TESTED.

    DON’T QUALIFY? DON’T BOTHER RUNNING.

    Ok, NYC is not very good with words, so I have kindly put it down on paper.

  1055. Wes says:

    Mikey, hoe many pieces of legidlation Trump would sign is Roy Moore planning to vote for?

  1056. Wes says:

    Legislation*

  1057. Chicon says:

    Isn’t every election in effect a litmus test? Aren’t we all voting for a candidate that best matches our own belief systems?

    Can we assume that either Mia or Mitt will win the general election? If so, doesn’t the choice come down to whether they’d vote differently on any issues?

  1058. Wes says:

    I don’t know, Chicon. West Virginians have twice voted for Joe Manchin to be Senator by double digits, yet Manchin consistently votes against his constituents’ wishes.

  1059. jason says:

    hat has he accomplished in the public sector besides being a nearly powerless Governor”

    I consider his work for the Olympics as “public sector” but even if not I think getting elected as a Republican in MA is already a major accomplishment. You can find opinions pro and con on his economic performance as Governor, but he did cut taxes and balance the budget, and HIS VERSION of Romneycare was a major accomplishment (later changed for the worse by the Democrats over his vetoes). He also made an effort to change the political tax and spend culture of the state, and his successful tenure might have paved the way for future R governors like Charlie Baker.

    I liked Romney’s tenure as MA Governor.

  1060. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – A few days ago, Jul predicted that the GOP would lose the House but strengthen its hold on the Senate by getting to 54 Senators.

    Is there a precedent for getting wiped out in one Chamber but getting stronger in the other?

  1061. Chicon says:

    For example, Jason, I happen to generally like the judicial nominees Trump has sent so far. I also like his list of potential Supreme Court nominees for future vacancies.

    Were I a Utah voter, this issue would be very important to me, and could cause me to select Mia over Mitt (or Mitt over Mia). Is this one of those evil litmus tests?

  1062. jason says:

    Isn’t every election in effect a litmus test? Aren’t we all voting for a candidate that best matches our own belief systems? ”

    Sorry, you already failed NYC’s litmus test.

    He is not looking for candidates that BEST represents his belief systems, he is looking for candidates that ONLY represent his belief systems.

    100% LITMUS TESTED. IT’S THE ONLY WAY.

  1063. Wes says:

    1882 is the only one I can think of, Bitter. Republicans moved from a tie in the Senate to a more substantial majority while losing the House. That was before the 17th Amendment though. Since Senators became the subject of direct election, there has been no instance where a party has gained power in one chamber while losing control of the other.

  1064. jason says:

    My point is that Robbie, “CG”, Author, and other #NeverTrumpers have their panties dripping because they believe Romney will be a strong anti-Trump voice in the Senate”

    I haven’t actually seen Corey or Wobbie say that. I don’t follow Author but I bet if he lived in Utah he would vote for the Democrat.

  1065. Bitterlaw says:

    I just received an e-mail from the school district. An 8th grade boy who has suffered from a degenerative nerve disease for years died today. He was in a wheelchair for most of his life. However, he was always cheerful and beloved by his classmates. He could not play sports but I often saw him at games cheering for his friends.

    I’m ashamed that I thought I had problems to bitch about.

  1066. Chicon says:

    I see Jason. These HHR definitions are sometimes confusing to me. I see litmus test as single-issue voting. Matching 100% of belief systems is tough to find. I don’t read Mike as saying that.

  1067. Wes says:

    The Olympics is a private organization, Jason. That would fall under private sector accomplishments.

    As for the rest, Republicans are 5-2 in Massachusetts gubernatorial elections since 1990. Romney did do some things, but Democrats blocked nearly all his proposals. That’s why I called him a nearly powerless Governor.

    He certainly wasn’t a bad Governor, but I don’t think his four years on Beacon Hill make him substsntially more attractive as a candidate than Mia Love.

  1068. jason says:

    Is this one of those evil litmus tests?”

    No, you missed the point.

    No senator is going to vote 100% according to your views, and you shouldn’t expect them to.

  1069. Wes says:

    Bernie Sanders will vote 100% according to Das Kapital.

  1070. Wes says:

    All Democrat Senators will vote 100% as Chuck Schumer tells them.

  1071. NYCmike says:

    There is no litmus test, as far as I am concerned.

    The people here who think that is what I am saying clearly have reading comprehension issues….or else they are being purposely obtuse.

  1072. Wes says:

    Mikey, how many pieces of legislation Trump would sign is Roy Moore planning to vote for?

  1073. Chicon says:

    Wes, is Mia Love a Moore-like deadender?

  1074. Bitterlaw says:

    MC

  1075. jason says:

    he Olympics is a private organization, Jason. That would fall under private sector accomplishments.”

    Yes, but the public sector is involved in making it happen, and its the public sector that in essence puts together the package to bid on hosting the games. So I view his involvement as at least partially “public sector”

    And yes, I think his tenure as chief executive of a state like MA makes him much more attractive as a senate candidate than a 3 term congresswoman from Utah.

    And I think the fact he had an adverse legislature is a plus in his accomplishments, not a minus. He was able to work with a hostile legislature and still put together a pretty good record.

    So in the end, I think his public sector accomplishments far outweigh Mia Love’s. Feel free to disagree.

  1076. Wes says:

    Not to my knowledge, Chicon. Love did bring electoral problems on herself in 2012 and 2014 by not taking her races as seriously as she should have, but she seems to have become more serious about her races since then. I see no serious objection to her running for Senate this year.

  1077. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    What are you getting on about? Do you have Tourette’s, and the words “Roy Moore” keep blurting out?

  1078. NYCmike says:

    Here is how the Romney discussion started yesterday:

    Robbie says:
    January 2, 2018 at 2:14 pm

    Orrin Hatch to retire.

    Here comes Mitt Romney.

    Eat it Trumpers.

  1079. jason says:

    If I was a Utah resident voting in the primary, I wouldn’t think twice about voting for the best qualified candidate, Mitt Romney.

    Mia Love is a fine woman, very smart, great personal story, and a rising star in the Party. I think she has a lot of potential.

    She is just not in the same league as Mitt Romney.

  1080. Wes says:

    I’m going to keep asking till you answer, Mikey:

    Mikey, how many pieces of legislation Trump would sign is Roy Moore planning to vote for?

  1081. NYCmike says:

    “CG” followed with his sanctimonious claptrap about Romney being a voice against Trump.

    Author is re-tweeting this:

  1082. Chicon says:

    From reading here a long time it seems the operational HHR definition of deadender is “social conservative that lost”.

    For the record…..I’m an economic conservative far more than a social one.

  1083. NYCmike says:

    To help your Tourette’s:

    Every piece that gets to his Senate desk.

  1084. mnw says:

    Wes 1074

    When Romney stepped in to take over the profoundly troubled Winter Olympics? Solved the problems & then the games went off smoothly?

    I don’t know whether that should be called “public” or “private,” but it was damned impressive & a tremendous public service.

    People were panicking until Romney stepped in. It was BAD.

  1085. Wes says:

    Deadender is more a catchall for lunatic wingnuts who cost the Republicans winnsble races. See Christine O’Donnell, Ken Buck (pre 2014), Sharron Angle, Dick the Misogynist Bastard Mourdock, Todd Akin, Eric Hovde, Aaron Day, and, yes, Roy Moore.

  1086. NYCmike says:

    Those three, and several other commentators who I don’t care to find right now, EXPECT Romney to be an anti-Trump voice in the Senate.

    As I asked earlier, why do they believe this?

    jason, Wes, do you expect Romney to be an anti-Trump voice in the Senate?

    Which legislation passed by the Senate THIS YEAR, and signed into law by Trump, do you think Romney would have VOTED AGAINST?

    (jason, Wes – Please read slowly, because your reading comprehension is wanting)

  1087. Wes says:

    No argumenete, Mnw. I think Romney did a great job with the 2002 Winter Olympics. I was tailoring my question to Romney’s public sector accomplishments as opposed to private sector accomplishments. Since Romney was working as a private citizen rather than a public servant and dealing with a private organization, I regard his handling of the Olympics as a private sector accomplishment.

  1088. jason says:

    Here is how the Romney discussion started yesterday:

    Robbie says:
    January 2, 2018 at 2:14 pm

    Orrin Hatch to retire.

    Here comes Mitt Romney.

    Eat it Trumpers.”

    Yeah, he assumes Trump sycophants don’t like Romney. He is right.

    I am not a Trump sycophant.

    But if he thinks Romney will vote to thwart Trump’s agenda, he is wrong.

    Remember, Wobbie hates Romney, he lied about him and parroted the MSM’s talking points against him for over a year. He promised to celebrate Obama’s win here.

    Wobbie is a small minded petty little turd. Keep that in mind.

  1089. Wes says:

    Argument*

  1090. Wes says:

    Once again, Mikey:

    Mikey, how many pieces of legislation Trump would sign is Roy Moore planning to vote for?

  1091. mnw says:

    jason

    That’d be pretty hard to forget!

  1092. lisab says:

    i think romney will probably vote with trump more than roy moore would have

    moore be crazy

  1093. Chicon says:

    Wes, thanks for the input on Mia. I doubt she’ll run if Mitt is in.

    Jason, I’m good with either, too. Not sure what “resume” or “league” mean in this context. To me, what matter is how oten they’d push to same yes/no button, and on what topics they’d differ. Resume and league seems more like something that would matter for Presidential candidates.

    If I had a concern about Mitt, it would be about his ability to operate as one of 100 Senators versus as the CEO. But I think he’d adjust fine.

  1094. NYCmike says:

    And I will repeat, in regards to Romney, if he becomes the Utah Senator, I will be fine with him. He is NOT my first choice, but I don’t live in Utah, so it does NOT really matter.

    ALSO, as San Diego Citizen pointed out yesterday, Romney’s stature among Mormon voters may help Dean Heller get out the Mormon vote in Nevada, if Romney decides to publicly show support for Heller’s re-election.

  1095. Robbie says:

    So just another normal day in the Trump reality show presidency.

    Bannon accuses Don Jr. of treasonous activity.

    Trump says Bannon has lost his mind (projection by Trump?).

    Hard to understand why Trump’s approval rating is below 40%, right?

  1096. NYCmike says:

    For Tourette’s Wes: Every piece that gets to his Senate desk.

  1097. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    Tell us how awesome Bannon is!

  1098. Senators Buck, Miller, COD, Akin, and Mourdock says:

    And me, Senator Angle. And me, Senator McDaniel.

    HHR definition of deadender is “social conservative that lost”.

    Too simplistic.

    Social conservatives that lose are a dime a dozen.

    We delivered winnable seat to liberal Democrats, thanks to the deadenders who thought supporting us would “send a message”.

    Yeah, two of us, Miller and McDaniel, failed.

    Sorry, deadenders, we let you down.

    Here is how the Romney discussion started yesterday:
    Robbie says:
    January 2, 2018 at 2:14 pm
    Orrin Hatch to retire.
    Here comes Mitt Romney.
    Eat it Trumpers.”
    Yeah, he assumes Trump sycophants don’t like Romney. He is right.
    I am not a Trump sycophant.
    But if he thinks Romney will vote to thwart Trump’s agenda, he is wrong.
    Remember, Wobbie hates Romney, he lied about him and parroted the MSM’s talking points against him for over a year. He promised to celebrate Obama’s win here.
    Wobbie is a small minded petty little turd. Keep that in mind.

    – Your stupidity has reached new bounds in 2018.

    I don’t expect Romney to stand 100% opposed to Trump, but I’m glad Trump was unable to block Romney going to the Senate.

    Meanwhile, I look forward to watching you parrot Breitbart this year as you lick Trump’s balls. Oh wait. You disagree with him on trade.

  1100. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:
    January 3, 2018 at 1:56 pm
    Robbie,
    Tell us how awesome Bannon is!

    – History lesson for NYCmike.

    In January 2017, I wrote repeatedly here Bannon was bad news.

    Mikeypoo supported Bannon.

  1101. jason says:

    Resume and league seems more like something that would matter for Presidential candidates.”

    Really?

    I don’t agree. I like to support the best qualified candidate.

    Resume and league (as in experience, stature) are certainly important in a Senator.

  1102. Robbie says:

    Wes says:
    January 3, 2018 at 1:52 pm
    Once again, Mikey:
    Mikey, how many pieces of legislation Trump would sign is Roy Moore planning to vote for?

    – First, I’d like to hear again how Moore accusers can only be heard if Moore won.

  1103. DW says:

    The NFL regular season ended last weekend? Did anyone other than Bitterlaw notice?

  1104. Chicon says:

    Jason, I agree – I could have said that better. I think both reach a qualification threshold (unlike Moore). So, for me, I’d base my vote on how I think they’ll vote on the issues.

  1105. NYCmike says:

    “– First, I’d like to hear again how Moore accusers can only be heard if Moore won.”

    -I was exactly correct on this point…..he DID NOT WIN, so the accusations, have disappeared, and NOTHING will be done from a legal standpoint…….which of course, allows Roy Moore to run again in any future race….which I think is pretty short-sighted for Republicans to allow.

  1106. jason says:

    look forward to watching you parrot Breitbart this year as you lick Trump’s balls”

    LOL, I have never read Breitbart in my life, unless maybe something that was linked here.

    Astounding hypocrisy from someone who has been licking the MSM’s balls and believes any garbage and drivel they publish.

    You, the least independent thinker on this board, a completely brainwashed MSM toady who refuses to issue ONE opinion or statement that isn’t directly pulled from the moonbat press, accusing others of following any type of news outlet is really funny.

  1107. Chicon says:

    It is true that Moore’s accusers can no longer bring suit or file criminal charges against him, so they can’t get a hearing there.

    It is possible that an ethics hearing in the Senate could have provided a hearing – if Mitch followed through, which I personally doubt.

    It’s also possible for them to get a hearing if Moore sues them for defamation. Somehow, I don’t think that’ll happen.

  1108. Chicon says:

    1131 – drop the microphone. Outstanding.

  1109. Chicon says:

    Meant 1133 – Jason’s anti- Robbie missive.

    -Please be careful with the microphone….I have more to say.

  1111. Chicon says:

    Mike, not sure I’ll touch it if you’ve already handled it.

    I never thought halfway through the season that “red hot” & “Knights” would be in the same sentence together. What a surprse for the Knights, to be so good for so long. Probably really good for the NHL.

  1116. Chicon says:

    Mnw – yep the Knights are becoming quite the story. I expected a fall off, too, but they seem to be getting better. Making it look easy.

  1117. NYCmike says:

    mnw,

    What is the deal with the Knights….did they give up a lot of future draft picks to get the players they have?

  1118. NYCmike says:

    Someone had written on here that they had a tough choice….prepare for the future by selling at the deadline, looking to WIN NOW.

  1119. Chicon says:

    1140 – Mike, the cool kids never judge others; they’re nothing but tolerant….of those that think like them.

  1120. Chicon says:

    Mike, they didn’t really mortgage the future, but they did a fine job at the expansion draft. I think they assumed they’d be bad, so they got some good players that would be marketable at the trade deadline. Now that they’re so good, they may feel pressure to keep those guys.

  1121. Chicon says:

    Bannon is showing now that Trump used poor judgement in retaining him in the first place

  1125. CG says:

    You know, Donald Trump and Steve Bannon are both making some very good points about each other.

    Goodluck to both in what lies ahead!

    Add in Al Franken no longer being a U.S. Senator and this turned out to be quite the day.

  1126. CG says:

    Just a couple very brief things-

    I have long been a Mitt Romney fan, so why wouldn’t I be excited about him likely becoming a U.S. Senator. I twice was an enthusiastic supporter of his Presidential campaigns.

    So my affinity for Mitt goes back long before Trump. I trust Romney will cast votes that I (almost always) will agree with, which of course is also irrelevant to Trump.

    I also appreciate how Romney has stood in contrast to Trump, during the 2016 campaign, and more recently in regards to the remarks he made as a private citizen regarding Charlottesville and the Roy Moore candidacy. I trust and expect Romney to be the same voice on behalf of the United States and what the Republican Party should stand for as a Senator.

    ct’d.

  1127. CG says:

    Now, a few times on this thread, lisab has made some odd comment about Romney and the Trump “dossier” and how Romney “apologized” about it.

    She would have to back that up somehow. Romney has not been talked about anywhere in any connection to the infamous “dossier.” It has nothing to do with him. lisab often says things here just for her own amusement.

  1128. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1122. “Hard to understand why Trump’s approval rating is below 40%, right?”

    Actually Trump rose to 40% in Gallup on December 31. Robbie, you need new talking points. Trump in both the Gallup and Rasmussen polls has risen about 6% in both polls from lows during the latter part of 2017.

  1129. NYCmike says:

    “So my affinity for Mitt goes back long before Trump. I trust Romney will cast votes that I (almost always) will agree with, which of course is also irrelevant to Trump.”

    -Not at all irrelevant to Trump.

    Trump will sign any bill that passes with Mitt’s help.

    Hillary (odds are with me) would NOT have signed any bill that passes a Republican Congress with Mitt’s help.

  1130. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “I think Romney did a great job with the 2002 Winter Olympics.”

    Romney was admired for how he turned the Salt Lake City Olympics around. It was mired in scandal, and people were worried it would fall on its fact, Romney came in and did an amazing job.

    If Trump decides, or for any reason does not, run again in 2020, then Romney is a potential candidate to succeed him. He knows that Trump has the loyalty of the vast majority of Republicans, and a strong base of support. He is going to need to work with Trump and obtain the support of that base to ever get elected.

  1131. CG says:

    “If Trump decides, or for any reason does not, run again in 2020, then Romney is a potential candidate to succeed him.”

    Stop it! Don’t do that to me. Don’t make me envision such a universe is possible!

  1132. CG says:

    I didn’t even read the rest because there is no need.

    My one semi-disappointment of Romney going to the Senate is that he would be less likely to run for President as an Independent (if Trump is still around), but someone else, perhaps Kasich, is likely to take on that role fortunately.

  1133. CG says:

    I will state that Romney will not need Trump’s support in any way to get elected to the Senate in Utah. He is likely to win, even as Trump will be mean-Tweeting him.

  1134. NYCmike says:

    “Stop it! Don’t do that to me. Don’t make me envision such a universe is possible!”

    -The fact that you say this about ANY POLITICIAN is clear evidence you have learned NOTHING from your days on your knees in deference to Denny Hastert.

  1135. NYCmike says:

    “I will state that Romney will not need Trump’s support in any way to get elected to the Senate in Utah.”

    NYC

    RE: Knights

    They didn’t give up any draft picks!

    They just chose very shrewdly among the players left unprotected by the other teams.

    To its credit, the NHL structured the expansion draft in such a way that there were inevitably going to be some good players left unprotected— the exact opposite of the ‘69 Mets’ situation, for example.

    The League had the foresight to see that it would be in their interest to have a competitive expansion team immediately— as opposed to every Knights game being almost like a by for the opposing team.

    The surprising thing is that it worked SO well! As stated, I think that’s a very good thing for the League.

  1138. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Romney also should take note of how effectively Trump is able to appeal to blue collar and middle class voters. Romney is too corporate and polished, and people cannot relate to him.

    Underneath, he is not that way, during the Olympics, he was know to explode and scream expletives at people who were badly screwing up. People found that an endearing quality in contrast to his regular glossy demeanor.

  1139. CG says:

    Decent people are able to relate to Mitt Romney quite well. He will have no problem getting elected in Utah even without the liberals and the Trumpists. He will far exceed the vote percent that Trump got.

    If somebody genuinely prefers Donald J. Trump to Mitt Romney, I think they have a character flaw.

  1140. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1160. “He is likely to win, even as Trump will be mean-Tweeting him.”

    What do you base that on? They recently have had cordial telephone conversations.

    If there is going to be some mean Trump tweets; expect Bannon is going to be the target.

  1141. CG says:

    I’m not so sure about the expletive thing. I think that was a left-wing talking point that some attempted to use against Romney. Everyone who has worked for him has talked about how respectful he is.

  1142. CG says:

    Trump was recently talking to Bannon on the phone too.

    The second Romney criticizes Trump, Trump will fire back.

    Of course, without Bannon and Breitbart in the Trump orbit anymore, perhaps the “new Trump” will be a mainstream Republican like his new best friend Mitch McConnell.

  1143. Big Joe says:

    The question on my mind RE Utah: Will Steve Bannon recruit someone to try to take out Mitt Romney in the primary?

    He is human though of course and can get prickly, such as the time he challenged Rick Perry to a $10,000 bet.

  1145. NYCmike says:

    Yup, the amount of help that Romney needs from Trump won’t change history.

    2016 Presidential Election:

    Trump – 6 Electoral Votes out of 304 total

    2012 Presidential Election:

    Romney – 6 Electoral Votes out of 206 total

  1146. NYCmike says:

    The word “Utah” should be in there….

  1147. NYCmike says:

    Is JEB!2016 morphing into MITT!2020?

    For Mitt’s sake, because he is a very good person, I fervently hope not.

  1148. CG says:

    Always worth remembering that a larger percentage of Americans voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 (against an incumbent)than voted for Donald Trump in 2016. We don’t even need to mention the discrepancy in Utah.

    It’s too bad for Mitt that he didn’t get to run against Hillary.

  1149. NYCmike says:

    “Decent people are able to relate to Mitt Romney quite well.”

    -What is this based on?

    I think he is a very good person, but he is a human being, and I have never met him.

    His electoral escapades don’t back up your statement either.

  1150. CG says:

    Yes, Mitt is a good person, and the fact that he did not vote for Donald Trump (even against Hillary) is not a point in the other direction for him or anyone else who did the same.

  1151. NYCmike says:

    “It’s too bad for Mitt that he didn’t get to run against Hillary.”

    -Did someone say he couldn’t run?

    Or did he choose to stay out (in my opinion, because he is risk-averse).?

  1152. CG says:

    He’s a better person than Trump. That comes across easily to the people who would value such a thing. Some people do not value such a thing.

    Maybe Trump will apologize to Romney and his family on behalf of Steve Bannon or call on Bannon to do so??

  1153. NYCmike says:

    ” is not a point in the other direction for him or anyone else who did the same.”

    -True enough.

    But a year has passed, many actions have been taken by our President…….which usually leads to a re-examination of past choices, and for future decisions to be made.

    Wishing for an incumbent Republican President to lose, or totally ignoring the actions they have taken, DOES point to something.

    Hopefully Mitt won’t be such an ignorant jack*ss.

  1154. CG says:

    Romney ran for President twice and decided it was best to let someone else have a chance. When Trump emerged, he might have had regrets, but I don’t think Romney would have done very well in the 2016 Presidential primaries. People were after “something else.”

    I would have supported him again had he run. You would not have.

  1155. DW says:

    60,933,504 Romney 2012

    Nixon-McGovern – who is the better person?

    Kennedy-Nixon – who is the better person?

    P.S. RE: NHL expansion

    Seattle gets the next one, according to virtually everyone. It’s surprising that Seattle doesn’t already have an NHL team. Huge market. Historical interest in the sport— contrast Carolina, Phoenix. Tampa Bay & Dallas.

  1158. CG says:

    I think Romney, who is smart enough not to waste time on political blogs (probably) has largely the same view of Trump and his Administration that Robbie and I have.

    He certainly chose to speak out as it related to Charlottesville and Roy Moore and was blasted by Trumpists on this site and elsewhere for doing so.

    Trump and Bannon, before today’s tragic breakup, both were lobbying Hatch to stick around, just to keep Romney out.

  1159. CG says:

    As I said, 47% for Romney, 46% for Trump.

  1160. NYCmike says:

    “I would have supported him again had he run. You would not have.”

    -Another B*llsh*t statement by you.

    Trump was a last resort, because I didn’t think he had a chance.

    I did not support him until the primary was over.

    I WAS WRONG ABOUT TRUMP.

    His actions as President, and of his cabinet, prove that.

  1161. CG says:

    McCain is the better person than Obama, though McCain is flawed as well.

    Romney better than Obama.

    Maybe McGovern was better than Nixon, but Nixon’s heart was in the right place.

    Nixon was better than Kennedy.

    Every single name mentioned above is a better person than DJT.

    I am from Utah, and know otherwise. It is not unusual for Mormons to swear; some of the most swearing I have ever heard has been from Mormon college football coaches and players. Mendenhall now at Virginia comes to mind.

    Frankly, think one of Romney’s problems is that he came across as too prissy and sanctimonious. It even made a lot of Utahns uncomfortable.

  1176. CG says:

    mnw will never see his team win a Stanley Cup. I’ve seen three of them and am far more of a Republican than he is.

    Trolly CG

    I don’t want “credit” from a worthless unemployed full time thread pig.

    I claim to be a conservative more than a Republican, altho I always end up voting for the GOP— even if I detest the nominee, as I did McCain.

    Have u ever given MONEY to a GOP candidate, zh*thead? I rather doubt you have, unless you inherited it.

    I’ve been writing generous checks to GOP candidates since before trolly was born, I suspect.

    I previously posted that I maxed out on Thune when he took out Daschle. That’s $5000. (The only time I ever did that, btw.) What’s the most you ever gave, CG? Since you are “more of a Republican” than I.

  1192. CG says:

    I truly doubt Mitt Romney dropped a bunch of f bombs on an 18 year old kid he just met.

    Neither he nor David Archuleta (from American Idol) are likely to be foul mouthed.

    I suspect every word CG has ever posted here is a complete lie. Period. Full stop. Including “a” “and” & “the.”

  1202. CG says:

    I’m actually George Soros. The gig is up.

  1203. Chicon says:

    CG – which of the Republican candidates in 2016 would actually attract your vote against Hillary, Warren, or Sanders?

    If more than one, what was your order of preference?

  1204. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1167. “SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1160. “He is likely to win, even as Trump will be mean-Tweeting him.” What do you base that on? They recently have had cordial telephone conversations.

    If there is going to be some mean Trump tweets; expect Bannon is going to be the target.

    Looks like it just happened:

    “President Trump is hitting back at his old associate, telling him in no uncertain terms to butt out of his affairs.

    “He’s only in it for himself,” Trump said in an official statement, adding that Bannon has “lost his mind.””

  1205. NYCmike says:

    “I expect to be voting for a center-right Independent in 2020”

    -To SEND A MESSAGE?!?

  1206. Chicon says:

    A center-right deadender!

  1207. NYCmike says:

    YES!

    We needed one of those to round out the team!

  1208. DW says:

    “center-right” is code-word for a RINO who reaches across the isle and the liberals grab his hand and pull him right in to be one of them.

    Center is center, meaning a squish who will help liberals advance their agenda.

    Right is right, meaning someone who loves the country and will fight to save it from liberalism and socialism.

    “center-right” is someone who is willing to advance the liberal agenda, but wants to fool right-wing voters to get their votes.

  1209. CG says:

    1230. Pretty much anybody but Trump, even if I am unenthusiastic about them.

  1210. CG says:

    The 2016 candidates? I would have cast a vote for any of them. Bush, Rubio, and Kasich were easily the best of the field though in my view.

  1211. NYCmike says:

    This opposition to Trump, a man that you seem to despise more than you do Denny Hastert, who is an abuser of children – there must be a REALLY LONG LIST of issues which you disagree with Trump on, seeing that he has governed for almost a year.

    I think you have mentioned TPP….anything else?

  1212. Chicon says:

    CG, thanks for the list. Robbie might be mad about suggesting Bush is center-right, but he probably won’t notice.

  1213. DW says:

    1238 – your question gets to the heart of the issue. I was as Never-Trump as anyone. But once he was elected, going on pining for someone else was senseless. Instead I chose to hope for the best. I have hoped that Trump would beat my low expectations for him. So far he has exceeded my expectations. So I too am interested to hear from people as to what policies Trump has been wrong on thus far.

  1214. CG says:

    What is your obsession with Denny Hastert? Are you going to try to reconcile the fact that you and him agree on many issues too?

    Neither deserves to be President and neither will ever have my vote for any office.

    I already gave a long list on Trump yesterday. Scroll up and read again.

    I will add that I totally disagree with him that we “wasted” anything in Afghanistan and Iraq.

  1215. CG says:

    “center-right” is just a term.

    I am far more conservative than Trump and the person I would support would be as well. To me, Trump is a big government authoritarian.

    But in regards to 2020, this Independent candidate has to attract disaffected Democrats too. I think Kasich would be in the best position to do so.

  1216. CG says:

    Once he was elected? DW you voted for him. That was your right to do, but you were never serious that you would not vote for him.

  1217. Chicon says:

    1243 – how do you know whether he was serious. Sure seemed like it to me at the time.

  1218. CG says:

    Well, we disagree, but yes, only he knows for sure.

  1219. DW says:

    1243 – actually, VA cast all 13 electors for Hillary Clinton. I was undecided until I got to the polling booth and saw people around me excited to vote for Hillary. So I looked at Pence’s name on the ballot and voted for him. But my vote had no bearing on the election of Trump as VA went completely for Clinton.

    I voted with the lesser of two-evils philosophy. Trump is a loudmouth who cannot control himself. Clinton is those things too but she is also evil. No question who the lesser evil was.

  1220. CG says:

    Keith Ellison has a new political problem now.

    You guys should be all over the story.

  1221. DW says:

    But when it looked like Trump would lose VA in a landslide anyway, I was prepared to write in someone else. It wasn’t until the last few days when polling suggested Trump was within reach in VA that I gave it any serious thought. But my vote was far from a foregone conclusion.

  1222. CG says:

    1246. Whatever you say, but the day after the election, you gave an entirely different specific story, that sounded extremely fake to me. Again, just my opinion, but we now have two different narratives about why and when you “changed your mind.”

  1223. DW says:

    But if I had known Trump would give us a tax cut and give us Gorsuch, and would not become an immediate lap dog for Schumer and Pelosi like I feared he would, then I would have more enthusiastically voted for him over Clinton.

  1224. CG says:

    The previous story was that you read on a website that Obama did a radio interview and called on illegal immigrants to vote so that made you vote for Trump. You had a very long narrative post about it. Now, it’s that you saw excited Clinton voters.

    Obama did not do that though.

  1225. CG says:

    Goodnight all. I likely won’t be on here the rest of the week.

    Let’s see if NYC is capable of making any posts in which he does not reference my name.

  1226. NYCmike says:

    Did the most sanctimonious jackass leave?…damn, I couldn’t even do it once!

  1227. NYCmike says:

    “CG” knows more about why individuals acted than the individuals themselves….

  1228. NYCmike says:

    “I will add that I totally disagree with him that we “wasted” anything in Afghanistan and Iraq.”

    -More “rhetoric” that you disagree with…I asked about the Iran speech at the United Nations…..did you “totally disagree” with what he said there?

  1229. Chicon says:

    1248 – today’s story from DW exactly matches what I remember from back then.

  1230. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Many months ago I attacked Bannon, and some people came to his defense. Anyone want to do it now?

    Here is Trump, Jr., twitter attack on Bannon:

    “Steve had the honor of working in the White House & serving the country. Unfortunately, he squandered that privilege & turned that opportunity into a nightmare of backstabbing, harassing, leaking, lying & undermining the President. Steve is not a strategist, he is an opportunist.”

    Yep, Bannon is going to go into Utah and defeat Romney in the primary. Make me laugh.

  1231. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Can anyone tell me one good thing that Bannon did in 2017? Helping lose a senate seat and creating a mess for the president regarding Charlottesville come to mind as his major political accomplishments.

  1232. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Now Bannon is claiming that Ivanka wants to be president. Maybe there will be a Romney/Ivanka ticket. But Romney better look out, Bannon may start running adds in Utah next year claiming Jared is Mitt’s love child.

    Reuters/Ipos “Washington DC — With the holidays and President Trump’s first major legislative win with Tax Reform, President Trump’s approval rating rose to 41% this week, a 6-point increase from last week.”

    If Trump would focus on his success with the economy, his popularity would continue to rise. He has positive poll numbers (as indicated in Post #1274) for handling the economy and jobs.

    Once the new lower withholding rates go into effect in a couple of months, as a result of tax reform, see his approval ratings going up even more.

  1258. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Progressive New England has earned another distinction — the highest natural gas prices in the world. In an act of typical liberal insanity, New England states switched most of their energy use to natural gas — but did not built enough pipelines to bring natural gas in during cold winters.

    “In a cold snap like the one we’re facing, the severe constraints on pipeline capacity lead to sudden price spikes, and natural gas that normally costs $3 or $4 jumps to $35. Additional pipeline capacity could help dramatically reduce those price spikes.

    Further, utilities are less able to plan 12 months ahead if energy markets are volatile. It’s why all six New England states rank in the top 10 of US states for most expensive electricity, up to 50 percent higher than the national average.

    What’s even worse: This is an entirely needless problem for our region. New England is just 200 miles east of some of the most abundant, low-cost natural gas in the world from Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale region. With adequate pipeline capacity, access to this low-cost fuel could transform our regional economy and lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs. The opportunity is right in front of us–and New England is being denied that opportunity.”

    How many of these people are now working for Trump? Will any of them run as “center-right” candidates in 2020? 🙂

    • Robbie says:
    April 29, 2016 at 5:31 pm
    Here are some of the names that continue to be discussed as possible center-right third party candidates:
    General John Kelly USMC
    Robert Gates
    Jon Kyle
    Mitt Romney
    Whether any of these particular people make the jump, I *think* someone will run as a “safe harbor” for disaffected Republicans. The goal would be to juice turnout to save House seats.
    While some may find a third party candidacy far fetched, it appears General James Mattis was much more interested in running than previously thought. He was meeting with strategists and donors as recently as last Friday.

    Bath salt must be a powerful drug. Trump will be crushed and it will have devastating effects on the Senate and House races. So “burn it down” and “punish the establishment” just gives the whole shebang to Democrats.
    Sadly, the Trumpers are detached from reality in much the same way COD and Angle supporters were in 2010. They’ll be geared up for a victory party only find out they’ve suffered a major loss.
    As much as the white nationalists and the single issue immigration voters think Trump speaks for the country, they’re wrong. Women, Blacks, and Hispanics have a 70%, 85%, and an 89% unfavorable rating of the Fuhrer.
    The demographics will be 70% white and 30% non-white. Unless Donnie Tough Guy gets about 65% of the white vote (spoiler- he won’t), he has no chance. Romney got 59% of the white vote and 17% of the non-white vote. Trump will come nowhere close to either.
    It will be something like 54-43-3.

    182. Cory. Maybe so. It is not what I want, at least consciously.
    It using sound analysis.
    Historically 3 things…
    * Right/Wrong track is over 2 to 1 wrong. Not good for incumbent party.
    * Economy is roughly -10 to -20 and getting worse, not good for incumbent party. Also Trump is perceived as an outsider and a successful businessman.
    * Clinton’s unfavorables are for multiple topics developed over decades. Trump’s unfavorables may be modified easier because he’s new to politics, key is will he do this.
    My reasoning on very possible Trump may improve w/r/t Clinton by 3 to * percent the next 4 months or so. Then the race begins.

    With Obama’s approval at 50/50 it’s clear that any economic angst is not being blamed on the incumbent. If you want to know if the incumbent will be a drag or a benefit to the next nominee, you look at approval rating. I’m sure you already know this, but bringing up the economy # suits your end game better.
    Clinton’s favourables are not good, but you’re clearly delusional if you think Trump’s are fixable. Trump is just flat out despised. End of story. There has never been a nominee in history is worse position with favourables than Trump, and yet you think this metric will somehow work in his favour.
    You are the Polaris of the 2016 election cycle. Full of sound and fury, knowing nothing.

    RICHMOND

    Republican Del. David Yancey has won a tiebreaker drawing in the 94th District race.

    Yancey’s name was chosen at a special Board of Elections meeting. It broke the 11,608-vote tie for the Newport News-area seat and keeps a Republican majority in the House of Delegates.

    But the drawing may not be the end of the road in an election that has stretched for 58 days and included one recount and a court battle.

    Democrat Shelly Simonds, immediately after the drawing, said she wasn’t conceding and that “all options are still on the table.”

    “Clearly, I think that this is a sad conclusion for me and for the people of Virginia who really need health care,” said Simonds, standing near her husband and daughter. “Medicaid expansion really was on the line here.”

    It appears Simonds could ask for another recount, but that would likely extend beyond the Jan. 10 start of the General Assembly.

  1340. DW says:

    Of course had the Dem won the blind draw, she would have said that this was the end of the matter, democracy worked, and Virginians would rightfully get their medicaid expansion.

The law was enacted under the Elections Clause of the United States Constitution. The law advances voting rights in the United States by requiring state governments to offer voter registration opportunities to any eligible person who applies for or renews a driver’s license or applies for public assistance.

    – This is nonsense. Where have I HOPED for mental illness? No where. I’m simply saying Trump is mentally unwell and have been saying so since last March or so. These last ten months have done nothing but confirm the view I have held.

    As for impeachment and removal, if he’s committed crimes then I hope he is. I’ve seen nothing that say he has committed crimes.

  1413. Paul says:

    I think Trump will NOT be removed from office. It’s simply not going to happen. I am worried about Trump’s actions. I hope he’s not reckless enough for a nuclear first strike. But I don’t know. And that is scary.

  1414. Chicon says:

    Tina, if the arguments were solid, they should be made to the criminal court in support of a motion to dismiss his indictments. The suit is mostly political, imo.

  1415. NYCmike says:

    “‘Complete invention’: Blair denies telling Trump UK may have spied on him”

    -lisab already pointed this out, and then Robbie ignored her comment.

    This denial is in the book that Robbie quoted from, about which people called Donnie Dementia an idiot or whatever else.

    This guy is quoting from, and slamming, THE SAME BOOK!

    He is N V T S ! !

  1416. Tina says:

    I agree, chicon, an interesting read, however.

  1417. NYCmike says:

    Tina is enjoying herself too much today!

  1418. Tina says:

    Be careful about nunes, a hero.

    The rooster, aka howdy gowdy, has it in for him. The rooster is a swamp creature, nunes want the truth and was alamed by the 702 violatiion, that rogers ended, When rogers ended it, the penguin aka clapper wanted nsa rogers fired.

  1419. Tina says:

    When all of this concludes, we can thank rogers, flynn, and nunes.

    “”I think one obvious concern is that the United States Congress has made the possession of marijuana in every state and distribution of it, an illegal act,” Sessions replied. “So, if you — we need to — if that’s something that’s not desired any longer, Congress should pass a law to change the rule. It’s not so much the attorney general’s job to decide what laws to enforce. We should do our job and enforce laws effectively as we’re able.””

    -This is what Trump’s pick for Attorney General said in regards to laws on the books……Robbie would rather Hillary pick someone like Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, or maybe Sandy “why do you wear such baggy pants” Berger, since they are such honest stewards of the laws of this nation.

  1421. Tina says:

    I love the suit against Mulehead and Swampstein because 5ey will have to pay personally to defend.

  1422. Tina says:

    I like eric holder, janet reno, and loretta lynch.

    1443 – did the people have the right to elect him? If they knew what they were getting, what gives you the right to overturn their wishes? Are you more important than them? Or just smarter?

    – This is so dumb, even for you. You’re suggesting the country knew Trump was mentally unwell and elected him anyway so who cares. That’s ridiculous, but this is HHR so stupid ideas in defense of Donnie are the norm.

    Sure the country knew they were getting a unique character, but story after story during the election showed almost all voters believed Trump’s behavior was an act and he’d be presidential if he became president. Boy were they wrong!

    If a president clearly becomes mentally unfit, he or she should be removed. That’s not overturning the will of the voters or whatever other Sean Hannity talking point the Trumpers use. That’s protecting the government.

    If Trump was the leader of any other organization, that organization’s leadership would have removed him long ago.

  1426. Tina says:

    Or, hope they have adequate liability insurance.

    Its a way to clip mulehead especially, but ever since the identification of pete the cheat, the mistress, dork, etc., mulehead is geounded.

    – Good lord, you are stupid. If you Mueller has to pay out his pocket to defend Manafort’s worthless lawsuit, then you are even dumber than I thought.

  1428. Tina says:

    I do not know what to call what ever sits on top of howdy gowdys head.

    I also know that he loves his aoundbites, but like his predecessor, the car dealer, issa, no results.

  1429. Tina says:

    The Senior Executives Association and other professional, management and law enforcement associations recommend professional liability insurance because these policies include an “administrative defense” provision. This provision pays up to $100,000 of an employee’s legal fees if he or she is:

    The subject of an IG investigation;
    Accused of engaging in whistleblower reprisal by OSC;
    Named as the responsible management official in an EEO complaint;
    The subject of a disciplinary action, such as a suspension, demotion or removal for alleged misconduct.

    – This is what gets said when you have a good feeling it’s going to go badly, but just don’t want to accept that so soon in the process.

    Could things turn around? Sure. But only if Trump changes the way he acts and his tweet storm on Tuesday shows he’s not going to do that.

    Could Trump implode? Sure. I hope he doesn’t. I want him to be as conservative as possible.

    Granted I appreciated GW Bush’s self-restraint and decorum better than Trump’s twitter rants.

    But in the end, I care more about getting results, and GW Bush in the end was more about extending liberal spending and reaching across the isle.

    I am not a Trump defender. I look at what he is doing right before my eyes as to policy, and so far I cannot complain.

    – Trump voter after Trump voter who was interviewed in 2016 all said they believed Trump was just performing. It was all an act. They believed he’d act presidential if he won. Well, clearly he wasn’t acting and the public is treating him harshly. They’re giving him no credit for any accomplishment because they can’t get past his erratic behavior.
