      President Trump won the election. Unfortunately he couldn’t stop the steal. Sometimes, temporarily, evil takes over. Pray for our country, as evil invades the White House today. Trump or DeSantis 2024.

    2. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      If FOX News is looking for atonement from its former viewers like myself, this is a great start. This Fat Boy, Bozo and Never Trumper was responsible for the networks abysmal polling and the early Arizona call on election night. Good riddance to bad garbage!

    3. Messy says:

      1-2. The Election was free and fair. We all know that. There was NO steal. Biden is now, as of noon, our president, and we have a female Vice President as well.

      President Biden will have a huge job repairing the damage the orange pimple inflicted on the country. But he will do it.

      What was once the party of Lincoln will split, and may not survive. I don’t know. But America WILL survive.

      Four years hence, there will be a peaceful inauguration ceremony, with an overflowing National mall, and in 2026, a glorious Quarter Millennial celebration throughout the nation, marveling at the narrow escapes we all just witnessed this month and in 1865.

      In the meantime, there will be a reckoning. A president will go to jail for the first time, and we will find out who the Q-anon hoaxer is.

      But today is one for celebration.

    4. Messy says:

      Sheeple,Jr. is extremely wrong. it is always a mistake to punish someone for being right.

      Being right is a good thing.

    5. Joe says:

      Hey Mess….the election was free and fair….if you are Stalinist! As Joe said,it’s not who votes, but who counts the votes. The count stops in the middle of the night, and suitcase ballots say it all.

      Obama gave us Trump. Disasterous Slow Joe and Commie Harris will lead to someone far more conservative than Trump. I can’t wait until that person takes office and implements a true conservative agenda. Someone to the right of Cruz and Hawley would be ideal.

      Thanks, Wes. Lisab violated the rules on the What If scenarios for cheap laughs with her Dems cheat like in 2020 in her scenarios.

      Jason – Why do F’ing lie about my position? I have never (and I know the meaning of the word) that the GOP could win elections with only suburban voters. Never. A third party will hand the Democrats power for years. Even if it elected a few Senators or Reps, we do not have a Parliamentary system and Dems would be in the majority in both chambers of Congress and hold the White House.

      Bitterlaw says:
      January 20, 2021 at 7:44 am
      I also never said the GOP could survive only with suburban voters. Never.

      As for Radnor, I moved here because it was close to both of our jobs and it was a top 5 school district.

    7. Bitterlaw says:

      I worked on Phil Gramm’s campaign. For Kay Bailey Hutchinson. Rick Perry. GWB. Dozens of other office holders in Texas at all levels. I posted road signs, manned phone banks, canvassed door to door. I attended hundreds of meetings, bbqs, seminars, rallies, events of all types. I worked long hours on Mitt Romney’s ill fated Project Orca. I campaigned for Tom Corbett, Toomey, Scott Perry and many other local PA Rs. Over 25 years, I donated well over $100k of hard earned money to Rs and conservative causes.

      So if you did more, you can talk about “quitters”. If you didn’t, GFY.

      Impressive list. Then you quit. GFY.

    8. Jake says:

      All unity and healing today I see.

    9. Proud Obamacon says:

      Finally!! Great day for America.

      President Biden
      Vice President Harris

      U . S . A . !

    10. Proud Obamacon says:

      All the hard work. The calls, the mailers, the door-knocking, culminates in today’s inauguration. We restore Democracy and begin to heal from the poisons of Fascism and Authoritarianism.

      An election that was “the most secure in American history.” Not my words, these are the words of Trump’s own security team.

      We showed up, we showed out, and we are on a path to rebuild the country better than its ever been.

      A great day for our great country.

      U . S . A . !

      It is Troll Day at HHR.

      Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    12. Tom Fulcher says:

      If 11 million illegal aliens are granted citizenship you can kiss a Republican presidency goodbye forever.

    13. jason says:

      Bitter said I would post 1000 posts about not voting. So here is the first one.

      There are two main reasons I will no longer be voting. Or working for campaigns. Or donating to candidates.

      1) I no longer think my vote matters. The country has shifted ideologically, mostly because far leftist academia has been unchallenged for decades. The disciples of this education have dominated the media and now have spread to corporate America. They have shifted the suburbs from majority R to majority D. It was not about Trump, or he would not have gotten more votes and a higher percentage of the vote. It was an ideological election and people with my ideology lost. Any “wins” by Rs in the future will be pyrrhic victories, the ideology is not changing back. There might be a few ups and downs, but America is going socialist.

      2) I was too invested emotionally in politics. I felt physically ill with the GA results. I was tormented a Cuba style Marxist like Warnock could win in GA. I am truly disgusted with Rs who would vote for impeachment. What does this get me? The socialist agenda Biden will implement will be one disappointment after another. Since I don’t see light at the end of the tunnel, I prefer to exit the tunnel.

      But I gave it a good run. Robbie Goebbels said the sooner people like me stop voting the better. But what has he done for the R party and conservative causes beyond thousands of posts attacking any R on the ballot and regurgitating MSM talking points for over a decade?

      I worked on Phil Gramm’s campaign. For Kay Bailey Hutchinson. Rick Perry. GWB. Dozens of other office holders in Texas at all levels.

I worked long hours on Mitt Romney’s ill fated Project Orca. I campaigned for Tom Corbett, Toomey, Scott Perry and many other local PA Rs.

      So if you did more, you can talk about “quitters”. If you didn’t, GFY.

      Dusting of snow here.

      But I here they got more over in Blue Ball and Bird-in-Hand.

    15. Bitterlaw says:

      Since Jason is not actually leaving HHR, he will not be receiving a Maxwell score.

      Now we wait for Tgca’s over the top and lie-filled “leave of absence” rant. It better be fabulous.

    16. jason says:

      Roadkill Maggot did not recognize Trump as President even thought he won legitimately.

      I don’t recognize Biden as President because he didn’t win legitimately.

      I am superior to Roadkill Maggot.

    17. jason says:

      “I here”

      True.

    18. jason says:

      I feel good today. Normally I would be upset a fake President is taking over with his Marxist VP bent on changing the system of government that has made us the greatest country on earth.

      Now I just feel sorry about the people that still care.

    19. jason says:

      If 11 million illegal aliens are granted citizenship you can kiss a Republican presidency goodbye forever.”

      Start kissing.

    20. Bitterlaw says:

      How much did they get in Intercourse?

      Messy Moron really is a moron.

      After a couple hours, the guy called an election that took weeks to decide and was decided (with fraud) by less than 10k votes (0.3%) out 3.5 million cast.

      So no, he was not “right”. He was wrong to call it.

    23. Phil says:

      Yeah, start kissing.

    24. jason says:

      Bitter, Blue Ball has had ploughing problems.

    25. Proud Obamacon says:

      Laughable that Jason and Phil are retiring from politics.

      Both will be here pining for the next fascist candidate. And then whining when that candidate loses.

      You can “BOOK IT” LOL!

    26. jason says:

      Interesting pardon..

      Kwame Kilpatrick

      The former Detroit mayor was sentenced in 2013 to 28 years in prison following his conviction on two dozen charges including racketeering, bribery and extortion from a conspiracy, which prosecutors said had worsened the city’s financial crisis.

      Kilpatrick, 50, once seen as a rising star in the Democratic Party, received one of the longest corruption sentences ever handed to a major U.S. politician.

      Kilpatrick, who was mayor from 2002 to 2008, extorted bribes from contractors who wanted to get or keep Detroit city contracts, prosecutors said.

    27. jason says:

      Both will be here pining for the next fascist candidate.”

      Kamala Harris?

      No thanks.

    28. Phil says:

      Interesting list,

    29. jason says:

      Bitter, you should get out of the rat race and move to Bittersville. You could even run for Mayor.

      It would be fun. We could meet on Sundays for smorgasbord and my wife can share her recipes for shoofly pie and gooseberry jam and maybe your wife can share her family recipes for kugel and kishka.

      You can get some good deals on a house.

      BREAKING

      Purloined copy of Biden inaugural address.

      It says, in part:

      “I know this nation is deeply divided. I vow to breach this division and bring the nation together. In that end, I announce that I am creating a commission to investigate alleged election fraud in the 2020 election. I am appointing Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell to co chair this effort.”

      “I want them to leave no stone unturned to fully investigate election fraud and if it shows enough fraud to change the election results and DJT actually won the electoral college vote, I pledge to abide by the final results, resign as president, attend Trump’s second administration and then kiss the big orange mans ass in the middle of time square.”

      ****************************************
      Oh…sorry…that was not part of Biden’s speech.
      t appears it was part of a skit on Saturday Night Live.

      #####################################
      THE BIDEN SPEECH, in part, says:

      “Ask not what the left has done hypocritically, unconstitutionally and immoral. Ask instead ‘What can I do to take rights from conservatives and lock them up forever. o your part to crush those b@at@rds!”

    31. JeffP says:

      My ode to DJT…

      Ultimately he will be an anomaly…exception. Trump loves the USA…in all its history and tradition that made it the best country in history. He enlisted millions of people who never got involved politically. His America First policies will be his legacy of sorts. I hope it continues.

      His hard work on Judges will bear fruit. Who would ever think a reality show TV star would appoint THREE SCOTUS judges…better than HRC…thank GOD. He was far more pro life, anti sex trafficking and protected religious freedom far more than I ever would have thought. He rebuilt the military and kept out of wars. He strengthened Israel in the Middle East and brought some countries together for the time being. He built part of the wall and Mexico did NOT play for it. Spent a lot of money to raise the national debt like all the rest.

      He used the term Fake News to his advantage. He exposed the corrupt liberal media like no other before him. Exposed RINOS too. He was terrible at appointments and hiring staff that would be loyal. Some say he was too soft. He was self promoting and vindictive…emotionally immature and said and tweeted stupid stuff in his pursuit to bring damage to the English language in his use of grammar. But you always knew what he thought and where he stood. I respected him for that.

      He wanted to drain the swamp and it drained him. The deep state hated him and they won in the end. He withstood much opposition and probably changed politics for the next ten years. Ultimately I respected him far more than I thought I would and was the best one term President in my lifetime.

    32. JeffP says:

      And to think…a year ago…The we were rocking in the USA with no wars and a kick ass economy. Then China…

    33. jason says:

      Good summary JeffP.

    34. Dan says:

      Anyone who thinks there is an actual “deep state” and similar wacko conspiracy theories shows that they have no critical thinking skills at all. They just lazily regurgitate what someone told them simply to affirm their beliefs or hate. Quite seriously. smh

    35. BayernFan says:

      A dark day for our nation.

    36. jason says:

      Dan the brainwashed Marxist troll thinks he has “critical thinking”.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

    37. jason says:

      “they just lazily regurgitate what someone told them simply to affirm their beliefs or hate.”

      This from someone who probably watches CNN.

    39. Phil says:

      35

      You just described the left. Russian collusion would be exhibit one with regards to your “regurgitate” nonsense. As far as “the hate”, we don’t need lectures from the left on that subject. That’s just rich.

    40. JeffP says:

      For the weak minded Dan…

      Deep State- defined…the entrenched bureaucrats
      in government departments of the DOJ, CIA, FBI and Pentagon perceived as being concerned with global and political correctness and the advancement of their agenda. That is not a conspiracy…see Col. Vindman and Russia hoax as examples.

    41. jason says:

      Now that he is President, the MSM will admit he is in cognitive decline?

      Well, probably to get Harris as President.

    42. Phil says:

      The trolls are thick as flies this morning. They should be celebrating. Instead, here they are. Sad bunch.

    43. Phil says:

      Well, Jason. That’s kind of stunning from Politico. I expected them to roll this out over time. I didn’t expect them to roll it out the moment he was inaugurated.

      Wow.

    44. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t know, Jason. A double wide trailer might be a bit much right now.

      I think Trump was a good President. I think he did the best that could have been expected with COVID with one major exception that more about style than substance. I wish that early on that he had said, “Put on a mask, wash your hands, and go back to work/school. This virus is extremely dangerous to some of us and we mourn the loss of those people but minor to most.” Of course, the governors would have bitched and locked things down. A speech like that might have blunted some of the VBM hysteria that allowed the fraud to steal the election. Would asking (not ordering) everybody to wear a mask at the beginning haves lives? I don’t know. Would it have taken away the “Trump is anti-science” attack ads? It might have enough to overcome the few thousand votes he lost by.

    45. Country Dick Montana says:

      I have parked the truck for the last time. 46 years is a good career.

      Mrs. CDM and I are headed south where it is warmer and friendlier.

      Best of luck to everyone here,

    46. Bitterlaw says:

      I think Deep State is a Zzzzzz. Dan is a douche. Both can be true.

    47. jason says:

      “Put on a mask, wash your hands, and go back to work/school. This virus is extremely dangerous to some of us and we mourn the loss of those people but minor to most.”

      I think he did say that, in so many words. But early on he acted on the information he had available. So did everyone else.

      Dr. Fauci on March 8, 2020.

      “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And, often, there are unintended consequences — people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.”

    48. jason says:

      Would it have taken away the “Trump is anti-science” attack ads?”

      No, of course not.

    49. jason says:

      I don’t fault Trump’s COVID approach one bit. If Biden or Hillary had been President, they wouldn’t have shut down flights from China and Europe and probably we would have more than a million dead by now.

      In the end, what will really work to curb the pandemic is the vaccine. And Trump got that right.

      So on the ONE most important thing, Trump gets an A+.

      He “should have told people to wear masks and wash hands?” Zzzzzzz

    51. Bitterlaw says:

      They just stole 11 minutes from Trump’s Presidency. Biden already sworn in.

    52. Proud Obamacon says:

      And it’s official. What a moment when President Biden took his oath. No more fascism. No more dictators.

      Say it with me now:
      President Biden
      Vice President Harris
      Majority Leader Schumer
      Speaker Pelosi

      U . S . A . !

    53. Bitterlaw says:

      I did not say masks would have made a difference. In fact, I said I was talking about style and not substance.

    54. Bitterlaw says:

      Biden rips right wing extremists and then calls for unity.

    55. jason says:

      When it comes to trailers, go bold and go big.

    56. jason says:

      President Biden
      Vice President Harris
      Majority Leader Schumer
      Speaker Pelosi”

      Fully funded by China.

    57. Bitterlaw says:

      57 China had to fill the fundraising gap when Trump stopped donating to Democrats.

    58. Wes says:

      When it comes to trailers, go bold and go big.

      Ridley Scott accepts your challenge.

    59. jason says:

      In fact, I said I was talking about style and not substance”

      In other words, meaningless drivel.

      As we have seen, the virus was always going to run its course.

      Spain, Italy, France, Britain, Belgium etc all had massive shutdowns. They all have mortality rates higher or similar to the US.

      In the US, CA and NY had massive shutdowns, with mortality rates higher or equal to states that did not.

      So the one thing that really works to curb it is the vaccine.

      On that, give Trump an A+.

    60. jason says:

      Biden rips right wing extremists and then calls for unity.”

      Sounds like Bitter at HHR.

    61. jason says:

      Ma and I have cut a hole in the ice, let’s see what we get.

    62. Wes says:

      Of course while I admit Trump initially had a discursive approach to Covid that in no way helped perception of his Administration’s competence in dealing with the virus, a certain thing starting with an “i” was likely a huge distraction when Corona first hit.

    63. Bitterlaw says:

      C+ speech by Biden. I have watched inaugurations since Nixon. I don’t think I have ever heard the word “folks” in an Inaugural speech before. Certainly not at least 5 times.

      Dumbest claim – He will represent the interests of those who agree with him and those who don’t. That actually means he represents no position.

      He should have at least stolen some lines from Obama or Clinton. Their speeches were better.

    64. Wes says:

      Biden is the second of two Vice-Presidents to become President without directly succeeding the President they served under.

    65. jason says:

      “Today begins a new chapter in our Country.

      While the Left promises to implement their Big Government Socialist Agenda, the Republican Party will need to come together and work even harder if we’re going to continue putting America FIRST.

      The Democrats have control of the White House, the Senate, and the House, and our Party will be relying on you now more than ever. YOU are going to play a vital role in our efforts to preserve all of our historic accomplishments over the last four years, and it’s critical that we have your support.

      We need your help to send a STRONG message to the Left that Patriots, like YOU, stand with the Republican Party 100%.”

      Huh, no.

    66. Bitterlaw says:

      I wonder what group Jason is going to claim I called right wing extremists. It will be a lie but I want to know. I certainly did not use that term about people who voted for Trump.

      Ma can F off.

    67. Bitterlaw says:

      Good luck to CDM.

    68. jason says:

      Here is what I think Trump did right on COVID.

      1. Shut down China and Europe flts early on, despite being called a xenophobe and racist by Biden for doing it.

      2. Assembled a competent, bi-partisan task force. Did they make mistakes? Yes, but they acted with available information, some of it wrong.

      3. Held countless daily briefings on the progress of the efforts.

      4. Partnered with the private sector in meaningful ways to obtain testing, equipment, logistics etc.

      5. Implemented the highly successful vaccine Warp speed program.

      6. Sought to keep the economy from completely crashing, and was successful keeping most of it open despite the efforts by the MSM and Dem Govenors to completely crash it.

      Here is what I think Trump did wrong on COVID:

    69. jason says:

      Ma, that worked, it might be worth freezing our asses off.

    70. jason says:

      To be fair, I will now list what I think Trump did right on trade:

      Joe talks of unity. He can eff off. Any “Republican” who wants compromise with these bastages can also eff off.

      Gayest post ever by Tgca.

      Despite all of his lies and attacks, Tgca certainly will be missed until he returns. His exit rant was fabulous. Good luck to him.

      But we move on. Where can we get a gay Puerto Rican who speaks bad Spanish to fill in for him?

      If not, then Pence has shown himself to be just as petty as Trump, McCain, McConnell, Romney, etc etc.

      So much for being a Christian, and having the capacity to forgive.

    103. Robbie says:

      After a brief period of post-election optimism about the near-term future of the Republican Party, I have to admit that hopefulness was unfounded. In early November, I didn’t expect Trump would spend the next two months acting like a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist.

      I’m not predicting electoral disaster in 2022. Far from it. I think 2022 can still be a good election year for Republicans. However, a small segment of the party has decided to, effectively, head into the hills in order to wage a guerilla-like insurgency on the broader party. That never ends well.

      It’s quite possible the near-term future of the Republican Party will look a lot like what we’re seeing from Chemtrail Kelli Ward and the Arizona Republican Party. Rather than focus on winning back the Senate seat lost in 2020 to Mark Kelly, she’s focused on censuring Cindy McCain and the very accomplished and effective governor, Doug Ducey (he could well run against Kelly).

      The Republican Party is likely to face the reckoning it was able to avoid after the 2008 election. The hard-right is larger today than it was then and it has the media personalities of FoxNews primetime and scores of radio hosts behind them. Most importantly, the hard-right wants the fight.

      Political parties always have a choice: win or make a point. My guess is the “send a message” crowd is far more interested in making a point right now. That means Steve Bannon tactics and not Karl Rove tactics. (Congrats to slimly Bannon on his pardon). Since 2010, Republicans have usually booted away at least one or two Senate seats every cycle to expect something similar in 2022.

      -Not one word about McSally, who lost 2 straight elections……

    106. Robbie says:

      My guess is, at some point down the road, we’ll probably learn there were not 26,000 National Guard troops in DC. Most likely, it was a number put out by the Pentagon in hopes of dissuading the same thugs who attacked the Capitol from trying it again.

    107. NYCmike says:

      ” In early November, I didn’t expect Trump would spend the next two months acting like a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist.”

      -Not one word about the fact that if the same voting procedures are in effect in several states in future elections, then we will still not trust the results.

    108. NYCmike says:

      “That means Steve Bannon tactics and not Karl Rove tactics. (Congrats to slimly Bannon on his pardon).”

    109. NYCmike says:

      – McSally was a rotten candidate and I have mentioned that before. I thought you liked crappy candidates, though. Regardless, I was talking about the future. I guess it was my mistake to assume someone like you would miss that fact.

      However, your girl Chemtrail Kelli Ward is destroying the party in Arizona. I know that doesn’t bother you, but it does me. Chemtrail has overseen the state go from reliably red to having two Democrat Senators for the first time since Truman and the first Democrat presidential win since 1996.

      It’s as if Chemtrail looked at what’s happened to the party and Virginia and said, “Let’s do that, but even crazier”.

      But she fights, right?

    111. NYCmike says:

      Heh – SEND A MESSAGE!

      -Bannon worked for Trump in 2016…….and they won……despite Robbie “sending a message”…..but I am not so sure Bannon can be described as “slimly”.

      – Your basic ignorance of current events never fails to impress me. Bannon was arrested and indicted for swindling people who donated money they thought was going to help build the wall. In fact, Bannon was using the money for himself. Read the indictment.

      Steve Bannon is a slimy piece of crap, but I’m not surprised you would defend him. You’ve always been willing to defend any and every piece of garbage who worked for Trump.

    113. NYCmike says:

      Kelli Ward – supported the Republican Party candidate in each election.

      John McCain and family – did NOT support the Republican Party candidate in each election.

      Robbie says kiss the McCain’s arse and villify Ward…….makes sense……if you want Democrats elected.

    114. NYCmike says:

      Did I defend Bannon?

      Or did I state that Bannon worked for Trump in 2016, and they won that year, which makes your contrast of Bannon and Rove INCORRECT?

    115. NYCmike says:

      “– Your basic ignorance of current events..”

      -Facts not in evidence.

      Thanks anyway.

      Small part, huh. That’s what you and the DC Republicans never quite got. It ain’t a SMALL part of the party.

      …that’s always been the false assumption you and the establishment types never could grasp. Sad.

    119. NYCmike says:

      Phil,

      I was getting to that part. Good work.

    120. Chicon says:

      Mike – the ONLY time Robbie cares about policy is if it directly impacts his job. It even made him vote for Trump.

    121. Robbie says:

      January 20, 2021 at 2:25 pm
      “Karl Rove tactics” – what happened in 2006 and 2008?

      – This is the beauty of NYCmike. In 109, he praised Steve Bannon because he was part of the team that won in 2016. Then in the next breath, he attacks Rove even though Rove was part of the team that won in both 2000 and 2004.

      But let me make this a bit easier for NYCmike to understand. The difference between the tactics of Bannon and Rove are immeasurable. Rove is about finding candidates who can win general elections. Bannon is about finding retrogrades populists who lose. Remember your boy Patrick Morrisey who Bannon got to run in the 2018 WV Senate primary and lost what should have been an easily winnable race? I do.

      Bannon’s not interested in a Republican Party that can win. Bannon’s interested in a populist revolution and primarying anyone who doesn’t profess love and adoration for Dear Leader Trump. Even after four years, you still haven’t figured that out.

    122. Robbie says:

      Chicon says:

      SEND A MESSAGE Robbie is back.

      – I remember back in early 2017, right after you showed up in the forum, you believed the FoxNews story that Seth Rich had been murdered by the DNC.

      Did you happen to see last week FoxNews gave a seven figure settlement to the Rich family in order not to be sued by them for the obviously false and disgusting story you parroted here?

    123. Chicon says:

      122 – “Bannon’s not interested in a Republican Party that can win.”

      Neither are you, so you guys have that in common.

    124. NYCmike says:

      #122 – Bannon won in 2016. Rove won in 2000 and 2004.

      Same.

      Bannon got fired by Trump, so he gets some pass on what happened this year.

      Rove stuck around with Bush, and he had a hand in crafting policies in 2006 and 2008.

      You are not able to deal with reality.

    125. Robbie says:

      NYCmike says:
      January 20, 2021 at 2:31 pm

      – You’re a hopeless character.

      If you think Bannon and Rove practice the same kind of tactics, then what planet have you been living on the last five years?

      And as far as presidential elections go, Rove won two and your boy Bannon won just one. But at least the sleazeball got his 11th hour pardon, right?

    126. Chicon says:

      Robbie, I 1st appeared here in 2003.

      Neither are you, so you guys have that in common.

      – Bless your heart, guy who believed Seth Rich was murdered by the DNC.

      I have argued for candidates who can actually win races for the last 16 years in this forum. I argued against every one of the Tea Party crackpots who came along since 2010 because they were general election losers.

      You, on the other hand, showed up in 2017 to offer support for Trump and not much else. And oh by the way, your boy Trump lost the popular vote twice, got a lower percentage of the vote than Romney got, and got impeached twice.

      But I have no doubt you’ll be there supporting Trump, if/when he launches another self-serving presidential campaign in 2023.

    133. NYCmike says:

      “I have argued for candidates who can actually win races for the last 16 years in this forum.”

      JEB!2016

    134. Chicon says:

      133 – “I have argued for candidates who can actually win races for the last 16 years in this forum.”

      Like John McCain, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, and whoever was gonna emerge from the famous brokered convention? Those types? Yep, you’re always arguing for candidates that can actually win races… Do you think before you hit submit?

    135. NYCmike says:

      “a small part of the party has decided to head for the hills”

      Small part, huh. That’s what you and the DC Republicans never quite got. It ain’t a SMALL part of the party.

      – The 75 million who voted for Trump in the election were not a monolithic group. Most thought he was cheated out of victory, but the vast majority aren’t going refuse to vote for anyone not named Trump nor are they going to say the party must be destroyed because it was pro-Trump enough.

      The vast, vast majority of people who voted for Trump will vote for whomever the 2024 nominee is and aren’t going to support some sort of self destructive party fight that leaves Democrats as a permanent majority. How do I know that? Because they were the same people who voted for McCain and Romney.

      I understand you think the sky has fallen and Republicans will never win again, but that’s not the case. Trump’s hold on the party is already diminishing, but a certain group will decided that reprisals are needed. Jim Jordon and Matt Gaetz will try and do Trump’s bidding, but 6, 8, and 10 months from now, most people will have decided to look forward and stop worrying about what Trump is saying in between rounds of golf and court appearances.

    137. NYCmike says:

      And if I scattered at the first whiff of trouble, why didn’t I quit the party over Trump. Just for your information, it was Jason who quit the party and now says he’ll never vote again. Not me.

      The DC Republicans have no clue, Robbie and obviously neither do you.

      – DC Republicans may not have a clue, but I’m pretty sure state parties run by Allen West and Kelli Ward don’t have much of a clue either. So right now, we have a lot of people running the party who may not have a clue.

      As for McConnell’s speech yesterday, I agree with him. Trump fed the mob lies and the party can’t move forward until it moves past Trump. The sooner the better, but a lot of people don’t want to move on from him right now.

      Trump’s grip on the party is going to wane. People may still like him, but whether that means they want him to be the nominee again in 2024 is another thing.

      McConnell realizes the party can’t be successful going forward if Trump continues to hector and harass it from the sidelines. We’ve already seen the Trump base isn’t enough to win a national election and McConnell knows Republicans can’t win until they reclaim many of those who left because of Trump.

    154. Phil says:

      – Oh, it’s all about Trump. That’s why so many get so upset whenever anyone of significance tries to break with Trump. For the last four years, the party has been a cult for Trump. January 6 did a lot to end that, but there are still plenty of Jim Jordan’s and Matt Gaetz’s out there.

      Robbie,

      Do you support VBM without any signature verification and other security methods?

      – No.

      But before you repeat a bunch of lies told to you by Trump, Sidney Powell, and others, that’s not why Trump lost.

      Trump lost because he was a jerk for four years and people got sick and tired of his act.

      I’d also be interested in what Trump policies Robbie wants to change, but we obviously aren’t going to get much of an answer.

      Big surprise.

      – I think I made it quite clear over the last four years the issue with Trump was rarely policy. It was always about his boorish behavior and the unqualified dolts with whom he surrounded himself.

      But as far as policies of Trump I opposed, here are a few.

      First, I support free trade and opposed his tariffs from the start. Many economists believe his China tariffs shaved a point off GDP in 2018.

      Second, I opposed his outreach to dictators like Kim Jong Un. Other than a phot op, it got the country nothing.

      Third, I strongly objected to his constant harassment of NATO. NATO is the most successful alliance in history.

      Fourth, I opposed his efforts to rapidly draw down American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. I don’t think that made the country any safer.

      There are others, but these are just a few.

    163. Chicon says:

      Robbie’s Mini-GOP party should have no problem holding Senate seats in WI, OH and PA with Trump supporters working instead of voting.

    164. Phil says:

      No, it’s all about Trump to you, Robbie. Not us. Day in and day out for four years that’s all we’ve gotten from you. The cult is actually you never Trumpers. The hate for the guy 24/7 is what binds you.

      Well, now it’s our turn to sit in the cheap seats and watch the dumpster fire of what’s left of the party.

      You want to give us the finger and expect to win anything again without us? Go for it.

      Good luck, pal.

      I’ll say again, Robbie doesn’t care about policy. CDM was right about him – just a parlor game to him.

      – Wrong.

      I strongly support the agenda that Ronald Reagan brought to Washington in 1981. I support lower taxes, fewer regulations, a strong national defense, and, most especially, conservative judges.

      However, I am smart enough to realize that, in order to get those policies enacted, you have to nominate a candidate who can actually win and not piss people off every single day.

      There’s a tradeoff. Win or make a point.

    166. Chicon says:

      165 – absolutely nailed it, Phil.

    167. Phil says:

      Paying their agreed to share of costs is harassment of NATO to Robbie.

      Robbie is in a box on VBM. He can’t say it is an important topic without admitting it is prone to fraud. And we can’t have that because election fraud = Loch Ness Monster.

      – I’m not the least bit in a box. I think voters should vote on election day and have always believed that.

      I didn’t like all of the changes that were made to accommodate coronavirus, but no one put me in charge. Regardless, Trump didn’t lose because of VBM. That’s like saying Romney lost in 2012 because of illegals.

      Trump lost because he spent four years pissing people off and, unfortunately, many in this forum learned that most people don’t vote on policy. They vote on who they like or, at least, on who they hate the least.

      -Hi. The PRESENT is calling, and they are asking if the same alliances with the same methods will work today and in the future……the citizens of the United States, after 4 years of fewer wars than before, are interested to know your answer.

      Also, considering that we have strong alliances with NATO countries who pay the amount they are supposed to pay for the common defense, and who also recognize the threats from Russia, China, and multiculturalism, your opinion of NATO is rooted in the past…..which seems to be a recurring theme.

      Well, convict him by all means then Robbie. No one out here in the boonies will notice.

      Good luck in 2022 and 2024.

      – I hope the Senate does convict him, but they won’t. He should be barred from holding future office for inciting a riot that storm the Capitol and left four people dead.

      But if you’re suggesting people won’t support the party in 2022 and 2024 because they were meanies to Trump, then you’re making the case the party exists only to benefit Trump. That’s not a party. It’s a cult of personality.

      Regardless, I seem to remember the party threw GWB overboard after 2008 and it didn’t hurt them in 2010.

      – No, you’re saying the two are intertwined. Treat Trump badly, and voters will stay home.

      But if you feel the need to stay home in 2022 and 2024 because the party felt compelled to distance itself from a twice impeached president who incited a mob that stormed the Capitol, then you should do what you feel is right for you.

      On the flip side, if the party renominates Trump in 2024 (a good possibility), don’t be surprised if lots of people who have long voted for Republicans don’t do so.

    187. NYCmike says:

      “I support alliances. If you want to retreat to fortress America, a concept that doesn’t work in the age on planes and ICBM’s, then go ahead.”

      -Trump has worked with Poland, Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania, Austria etc etc etc.

      He has worked to form the Quad with Japan, Australia, India, So Korea.

      He has worked with Saudi Arabia, Israel, Morocco, UAE, etc etc etc.

      He has worked with Mexico, Honduras, Guatamala on immigration issues.

      He worked with Canada to get the XL pipeline done, which Biden says he will get rid of (unions and local Democrats may prevail on him to NOT do this).

      NOBODY, and most definitley NOT TRUMP, retreated to “Fortress America”.

      – No. I understand the base 100%. For the past four years, it has been with Trump lock, stock, and barrel. And so far, about 80% to 90% of the base remains with Trump. You’re saying if the party treats Trump badly, the base will stay home. I don’t remember anyone arguing that in 2010, though. Why? Because the base didn’t identify itself as being one in the same with GWB. The base in 2021 does see itself as Trump.

      – I don’t think a party has a duty to concern itself with voters who believe patently incorrect things or who believe in conspiracy theories.

      Plenty of Trump supporters believe in the QAnon conspiracy theory. In fact, many of those who stormed the Capitol thought what they were doing was the “storm” promised by Q. Should the party have tried to find a way not to dismiss the people who thought Trump was waging a battle against a vast satanic, pedophile ring in the US government? No, of course not.

      A fully and well functioning party tells it’s votes the truth. Trump did the opposite. He fed his supporters conspiracy laden lies about the election.

      Don’t worry, Chicon. Robbie really thinks we’re not reflective of the GOP base at all.

      Treat Trump badly = treat voters badly. Voters get pissed and stay home.

      – If a large portion of base voters are unwilling to break with a twice impeached president who incited a riot that attacked the Capitol and left office with an approval rating below 40%, then the party is, unfortunately, going to have lose for a while until voters decide otherwise. That’s life.

      I haven’t run into one single one of what you would consider my “deplorable” type friends who is interested in nominating Trump. No one.

      – Have you not looked at the polls of Republican voters recently? About 55% want him to run again in 2024.

      And given the fractured status of the party and what will likely be a large field rivaling 2016, all Trump would need is the same 30% or so of primary voters who propelled through the first set of states in 2016.

      Plenty can change between now and January 2024, but Trump remains well positioned to be the nominee again.

    200. Phil says:

      No Robbie. Treat him fairly. A show trial after he left office? Are you kidding me? Seriously?

      The base will take that personally, and not because of what happens to Trump. He’ll be fine either way.

      To say nothing of pissing off the base….and for what for God’s sake? You keep talking about winning. As a strategy that is just plain stupid if winning is really your goal. Punishing Cruz and Hawley for objecting on the Senate floor just like Democrats did in 2016? Tell me how that dovetails with your “winning”.

    201. Phil says:

      I’m only going to say this once: Joe Biden deserves every opportunity to be given a chance as President, and we should, as a Nation, afford him that opportunity by not judging him or comparing him to his predecessors. Also, President Biden can no longer set blame or claim accomplishments from the past. He’s in charge now. He will succeed or fail based on his term alone.

      Having said all of that, it doesn’t look good that he immediately placed an EO for a federal mask mandate after promising he would not/would not be enforceable. If Biden is immediately going back on his word, before the sun has even set on his inauguration, that will not endure him to the 50% of the country that doesn’t trust him.

      Robbie’s comments here give credence to the point which jason has pushed many times – that the country is willing to elect a socialist. Academia has pushed their propaganda for 50+ years, the country has changed.

      Hopefully, states such as FL and TX can continue to elect strong Republicans, and we can continue to do well in other places like OH, NC, GA while getting rid of dead wood like Kemp, Raffensberger and Dewine.

    207. Phil says:

      Republicans will hold onto Texas until illegals are made citizens and allowed to vote. At that point Democrats will have control of the state.

      So concerned troll is following his usual script and predicting doom for the Republican Party in 2022. Anyone surprised?

      The 2022 election will be determined by what people think of the Biden administration. Given the division among the Democratic factions, and Biden’s age and diminished mental state, he could have a difficult and contentious presidency. Do believe he made a good inaugural speech focusing on bringing Americans together. I doubt the left-wing of his party will be agreeable — he may have more problems with the socialist factions in the Democratic Party than the Republicans. What happened to LBJ comes to mind; although this time a war will not be the factor causing leftists to challenge Biden.

      The only glue currently holding the Democrats together is their joint hatred of Trump. Now their factions are about to battle it out. See the Republicans doing well in 2022. Trump will still play a large roll in the party, but younger conservatives like Hawley will get increasing attention. Am not sure Trump will even want to run again in 2024 — he will be much older, and may prefer the role of kingmaker.

      I want to thank all of you Quitter mf-era for leaving me stuck with Robbie to rebuild a party. WTF did I do to deserve that?

      Robbie – Trump was impeached twice by Democrats based on 2 blatant lies – Russian collusion and inciting a riot. There has been no evidence of either charge. Impeachment is based on “evidence” that would never be admitted in a real court. Some of it is so speculative or untrue, real lawyers could be sanctioned for trying to present merit less cases.

      You know that I am no fan of Trump the person. I think he did a good job as President but could have been great if he learned to deal better with people. He could have learned to stay strong like Reagan but tell a joke or say GFY like Christie with a smile. At least he did not rape anybody like Clinton or take 3 minutes with pauses like Obama to finish an uninspiring sentence. If Trump is the nominee in 2024, I will vote for him. If there is a primary fight, I will listen to the candidates and possibly vote for somebody other than Trump in the primary.

      I take Phil and CDM at their word that they are not voting again. I don’t believe that about Jason since “never” means nothing from him. What I am saying is that we cannot trade CDM, Chi, Phil, Tina for Robbie. As MD used to say, math does not lie. Losing 4 votes to keep one is insane. Assuming I don’t die, I plan on running for Congress. Nobody here believes I can appeal to anybody let alone everybody I need. Your position on Trump is noted. You claim you want the party to look forward but you are the one who shows up today to piss on Trump. As Wes said with a cool heavy metal video, the barbarians are at the gate and the gate just opened when Biden was sworn in. Nobody on the Dem side is going to cut you slack for hating Trump. I wish more posters agreed that we must unite even with people they view as flawed (me) or hated (you). I will take all the support I can get in 2022 but can you at least take the day off? You can hate Trump tomorrow.

When he’s gone from the scene, that wing of the party will be looking for ppl who won’t back down from Dems/the MSM when the going gets tough, who won’t go back to the BAU era of DC politics. Just some food for thought for anyone who thinks this is just about Trump. It’s not.”

    222. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      79. What was Tgca’s exit rant about? It looked like a hissy fit in italics. As an expert, Tgca should know you never do a hissy fit in italics — you use bold or capital letters. Vegan diets cloud people’s judgment.

    223. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca really hurt his gay street cred using a Frank Sinatra song. I though he would base it on Judy Garland or the Village People.

    224. Bitterlaw says:

      Maybe something like “It’s fun to ague with T G C A”

    225. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      223. “Assuming I don’t die, I plan on running for Congress.”

      Is your campaign slogan going to be: “Vote for me, I’m alive”? Actually Biden may already have a claim on it for 2024.

      Bitter, would volunteer to help you save the Republican Party, but I am a registered independent (NP) in California — actually voted in in the Democratic primary in 2020, which unlike the Republican primary, was open to independent voters.

    226. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      227. Maybe something like “It’s fun to argue with T G C A”

      That would be a great song! Tgca would have to mention metrosexuals in the lyrics.

    227. Chicon says:

      Bitter – read the advice in 224. That describes me. I’ve been a Republican forever. Unlike Wes and Robbie – who call others out for sending a message – I have voted for every Republican in my life. Over the years, I began to believe that Republicans were not willing to go to to toe with Democrats, and that voting for them was becoming pointless.

      Trump was indeed the vessel for that belief for me. He was going to go toe to toe with Democrats. I want that. Do that when you run. Do it in your own style, but DO NOT signal that you are going there to work WITH the Democrats. You are there to destroy them politically. Smile when you say it and don’t talk about female parts.

      Also say this “I don’t know what impact, if any, fraud had on the 2020 election, but millions believe that the effect was large. Their voices must be heard, so I support a 9/11-style commission to get the facts in front of the people.”

      After that you can discuss sweaters and flowers if you wish….I kid, I kid….

    228. jason says:

      Robbie says:
      January 20, 2021 at 1:44 pm

      I have no doubt Jason will vote again. He’ll vote for whomever Trump and the new Patriot Party put forward.”

      Maybe.

      But we are sure Robbie Goebbels won’t be voting for any R actually on the ballot.

    229. jason says:

      Thomas A says:
      January 20, 2021 at 4:59 pm

      Hey Robbie-Keep your chin up”

      The Marxist troll just LOVES Robbie Goebbels…

      Of course, they have exactly the same talking points.

    230. Bitterlaw says:

      Chi – I never really thought of Trump going to DC beyond keeping Hillary out of the White House and appoint judges. He clearly meant more to others than he did to me. I need their votes, too, so I will listen and learn from them.

    231. jason says:

      “I’m only going to say this once: Joe Biden deserves every opportunity to be given a chance as President, and we should, as a Nation, afford him that opportunity by not judging him or comparing him to his predecessors.”

      Huh, no.

    232. Bitterlaw says:

      As for the Patriot Party – If nominated, I shall not run as their candidate. If elected, I will serve. I’m not stupid.

    233. jason says:

      THE HILL: Over half of House Republican conference sign petition to remove Rep. Liz Cheney from leadership post”

      Only half?

    234. jason says:

      Those most worried about the Patriot Party are those most complicit in its creation.

    235. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      232. “The Marxist troll just LOVES Robbie Goebbels… Of course, they have exactly the same talking points.”

      An amazing coincidence, isn’t it.

    236. NYCmike says:

      “Nobody here believes I can appeal to anybody let alone everybody I need.”

      -I think you can appeal to many people, IF you don’t have the media, Big Tech, corporations and fellow Republicans sabotaging you at the same time.

    237. NYCmike says:

      “Vegan diets cloud people’s judgment.”

      -Bruce Lee had a vegan brother, Broc O. Lee

    238. jason says:

      The Patriot Party could work somewhat like the old Conservative Party in NY. You could run on both the R party and Conservative Party lines and the votes would be added.

      That way the Patriot Party could choose which R candidates it would want to accept on its own line.

      Only where the R candidate was unacceptable to them would they actually field a third party name.

    239. jason says:

      McConnell is pretty much saying he wants the R party to be establishment purist.

      It is basically Robbie Goebbel’s tiny tiny tent party.

      Yesterday I would have found that very worrisome.

    240. Phil says:

      Yeah, Good luck, Mitch.

      Lol

      Pass the popcorn, Jason.

    241. lisab says:

      now i am going to get a lgbt+ tax break!

    243. lisab says:

      well … robbie is still a pathetic losah

      i guess a biden presidency won’t change everything

    244. jason says:

      After a brief period of post-election optimism about the near-term future of the Republican Party, I have to admit that hopefulness was unfounded.”

      It dawned on him that his tiny tiny tent party might come in third place after the Patriot Party.

    245. lisab says:

      michelle obama was wearing a pimp suit today

    246. NYCmike says:

      “The Patriot Party could work somewhat like the old Conservative Party in NY. You could run on both the R party and Conservative Party lines and the votes would be added.”

      -SEND A MESSAGE! The irony that jason is writing this!!

      That said, it may be a good idea, just so the “leadership” understands. It worked for a while with Pataki in NY…….unfortunately, they neglected to make lasting changes, and became part of the problem.

    247. jason says:

      SEND A MESSAGE! The irony that jason is writing this!!”

      No moron, it is exactly opposite, the suggestion would avoid splitting the vote in most cases.

      You got the wrong message.

    248. jason says:

      I wouldn’t support any Patriot Party btw anymore than I support the R party.

      But I understand the frustration with the R party.

      I have been warning for months that disparaging and disenfranchising the Trump voters will have disastrous consequences, starting in GA.

    249. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      247. “After a brief period of post-election optimism about the near-term future of the Republican Party, I have to admit that hopefulness was unfounded.”

      The fact that concerned troll has lost hope gives me hope.

    250. Bitterlaw says:

      So it begins. DeSantis and Cruz both sent me fundraising e-mails. 2024 is under way.

    251. Phil says:

      I got a couple last week over my email.

      LOL They can pound sand.

    252. NYCmike says:

      “Only where the R candidate was unacceptable to them would they actually field a third party name.”

      -No, A-Hole, I didn’t get the wrong message.

      You also wrote the quote above, in the same comment, A-wipe, which means they either get the message or the vote splits.

    253. NYCmike says:

      Cruz only has a chance if things get really bad, so as much as I would love to see him make it to the White House, I can’t make myself hope for that.

      Then again, I also thought Trump never had a shot to win until the last month of the 2016 campaign, so maybe Ted and his beard will grow on people.

    254. Phil says:

      The disappointing part of the solicitation I received from the RNC for donations was there was no mechanism on their website for me to give any feedback on what I thought they could do with their request. Oh well. Maybe they can figure it out when they aren’t getting any $$ flowing in…..but I doubt it.

    255. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes to post informative history of Presidential facial hair in 3…2…1…

      I don’t think a President has had a beard since the Era of Interchangeable and Unforgettable Presidents (1870s and 1880s)

    256. Bitterlaw says:

      I meant Forgettable Presidents.

    257. Bitterlaw says:

      I remember when I was 12 watching the Inauguration Night coverage. I thought it was cool that President Reagan could go to so many parties that night and I had to go to bed.

      Now I can’t even bring myself to watch the coverage except for a few minutes. It was essentially the same as his convention. Random “real” people saying Biden is great and then a performer singing a very slow downer of a song.

    258. NYCmike says:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9j0MitrXWag

      -This is how I feel about today.

    259. Bitterlaw says:

      Damn. It’s quiet. Tgca and Jason are not lying about me. Lisab is not calling me a fat loser. Phil has not posted that he left the GOP, the overused and already tired Washington Generals analogy, or passed the popcorn in several hours. HHR will be a ghost town for awhile.

      With my luck, Corey will show up.

    260. jason says:

      First question to new WH press secretary Jen Psaki from the AP: “When you are up there, do you see yourself in your primary as promoting the interests of the president or are you there to provide us the unvarnished truth so we can share that with the American people?”

    261. jason says:

      I have solid information that Bitter has a “Deplorable Free Zone” yard sign.

    262. NYCmike says:

      #264 – Did Jen Psaki ask them “Will that be the toughest question you ask? Then YES, I will tell you “the unvarnished truth”.

    263. NYCmike says:

      https://www.city-journal.org/bidens-inaugural-speech-words-of-division

      -Heather MacDonald’s opinion, or Chris Wallace’s opinion of the speech today – which one do you think Robbie and “CG” will agree with?

    264. NYCmike says:

      “The next four years will likely be one long anti-white-privilege struggle session. Any real effort to close racial achievement gaps, such as fighting the “acting white” ethic that prevents many inner-city children from trying hard in school, will be deferred and discredited. Biden is betting that white liberals, at least, will continue hanging their heads in penance for their hereditary crimes and trot off to their latest show trial. Given past behavior, he’s probably right.”

    265. Bitterlaw says:

      The guy who taught us about the honey badger teaches us about llamas.

    266. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason’s lies are getting so tired. My friend who is an army vet and retired cop told me today he may just move to the mountains to get as far away from Biden as possible. I said I can’t discuss it with him because Jason said I could not possibly know a retired vet/cop so he must not exist. He is also an umpire for high school baseball/softball. Ironic since he used to coach softball and hated umpires.

    267. Bitterlaw says:

      While Jason thinks the reason I don’t hang out with people he calls deplorables is because I am a suburban elitist, the explanation is very simple. I don’t hang out with anybody. I rarely go to church. I don’t have any hobbies or belong to any groups. When I had a job and an office, I was there 11-12 hours a day. My only break was coaching a few hours a week. I took 4 days off in the last year. 1 to see my niece before they turned off her life support, 2 for her Funeral, and a Friday for a weekend trip for my 25th anniversary. The year before that I took 3 days off. Maybe Jason can tell me where deplorables gather after 8:00pm.

    268. Bitterlaw says:

      Apparently, Trump left Biden a “very generous letter.”

      Well dang, TGCA is gone?

      well, you said you lost weight

    271. Cash Cow TM says:

      “he immediately placed an EO for a federal mask mandate after promising he would not/would not be enforceable.”

      Hope Biden does not draw lines in the sand to set limits to foreign countries against their neighbors…and then says “but I realize that line in the sand is unenforceable.”

    272. Cash Cow TM says:

      HOW MANY PEOPLE DID BIDEN KILL TODAY WITH THE CHINA COVID?

      (or are we not keeping count any more sinc we hafe a new president….)

    273. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      276. The Biden mask mandate only legally applies to federal lands. If you go to a federal site such as a federal installation or national park, a mask will now be a required.

      Surveys of those with coronavirus shown no difference in the infection rate between those who wear masks and those who do not. It is virtue signaling, and an attempt to hide the fact that we really don’t entirely understand how the virus is spread.

      States like California, with the strongest lockdown policies, are now being hit hard by the virus. We don’t know if the lockdowns, by temporarily bottled up the virus, may have intensified the virus and allowed it more time to mutate. It may be more likely nothing that we did had any effect on the epidemic, and it is running it’s natural course unabated.

    279. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      According to Jim Clyburn(D-SC), Bush43 thanked him for his maneuvers in getting Biden to become the Democrat Presidential nominee “because” Biden was the only Democrat who could defeat Trump and return the Country to normalcy”!
      Please do not ask me why I was so gung-ho for W. in 2000 and 2004.
      Phil- Are Bush43 and his family still “favorite sons and daughters” in Texas?

    280. Phil says:

      Bush is no longer anything here, Sheeple.

    281. Phil says:

      Hey, BTW, did I miss the violent insurrection that was supposed to have occurred yesterday in DC?

      What? Nothing happened?

      I’m shocked.

    282. jason says:

      “I don’t hang out with people he calls deplorables”

      We know.

      I have solid information that Bitter has a “Deplorable Free Zone” yard sign.”

      Of course, it was supposed to be a joke, but you know the old saying, when doth complain too much….”

    284. Wobbles says:

      I support the Proud Boys!

      “Proud Boys are ditching Trump hours after he left the White House for good, calling him a ‘shill’ and ‘extraordinarily weak”

      I hope they endorse Jeb now.

    285. jason says:

      Goober sees the light.

      “I hope people in our party understand the party itself. If you’re wanting to erase Donald Trump from the party, you’re going to get erased,” Graham told Fox News just hours after the inauguration Wednesday of President Joe Biden.

      “Most Republicans like his policies. A lot of Republicans like his style,” Graham continued. “A lot of people are disappointed with him personally at times but appreciate the outcomes he’s achieved for our country.”

    286. jason says:

      “If you’re wanting to erase Donald Trump from the party, you’re going to get erased,”

      I think the GOP leadership is going for erasing.

    287. Wes says:

      Bush may have outed himself as a RINO disaster (something I’ve been harping on for over a decade now), but Jason still obliviously worships the epitome of human political failure.

      No one ever libeled Jason by calling him the most perspicacious of political observers.

      Ah, well.

      I’ll sum up the reality of GWB by quoting the legendary H. G. Wells:

      “Damn you! I warned you!”

    288. Bitterlaw says:

      Since I don’t hang out with anybody, I also do not hang out with:

      Democrats
      Republicans
      Independents (who are really Democrats here)
      LGBTQWhatever
      Suburban elites
      Albinos
      Templar Knights
      Zionists
      Anti-Semites
      Free Masons
      Full Price Masons

      There are hundreds of other types of people I don’t hang out with so Deplorables should not feel slighted.

    289. Bitterlaw says:

      My snowblower is now fixed. This means it will not snow in my area for the next 2 years.

      Nikki Haley already being portrayed as a RINO by conservatives.

      I predicted this, it is unfortunate, but she bears the blame.

      Robbie Goebbels claimed that pandering to BLM would soon be “forgotten” and “1 in a million” cared about it.

      Btw, I already got an email from her about her new PAC. It is in my spam file.

    291. jason says:

      There is only one problem with Bitter’s list.

      None of them are needed to win elections.

      The deplorables are.

      No, I know there are none in Radnor, heaven forbid, the HOAs would already have taken action, I am speaking generally.

    292. jason says:

      My snowblower is now fixed.”

      Must be nice.

      I have a 20 year old shovel with a broken handle.

      Those suburban elites sure know how to live.

    293. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. First of all, we don’t have gated communities here. Most homes in my neighborhood were built in the post-war boom of the 1950s. Most of the rest of the homes are older. Second, Jason defines Deplorables to include working class and small businesses owners. We have plenty of those and most live near me. Third, Jason did not tell me where I can go to hang out with Deplorables when I primarily only leave my house for work and coaching. Should I post an Open House invitation on Neighbors.com?

    294. Wes says:

      Here’s an irony:

      Jason has adopted leftist class-warfare rhetoric against Bitterlaw for–gasp!–living in a suburb.

      We used to criticize Democrats for this kind of thing. Now people on the Right are reveling in it.

    295. Bitterlaw says:

      I share a driveway with my neighbor. I bought the snowblower years ago because his MS got to the point he could not walk anymore. It made clearing the driveway and the path to his house quicker so he could get to the paratransit van for appointments. He and his wife moved a few years ago.

    296. jason says:

      No one ever libeled Jason by calling him the most perspicacious of political observers.”

      I appreciate it, I get libeled so much here so it is nice to get a break.

      On the other hand, I think GWB was a great President. I didn’t agree with everything he said then, and I don’t agree with everything he says now.

      GFY.

      Ps: btw, a lot of the criticisms of Trump that GWB makes are the same you make. Are you a RINO?

    297. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes – I’m so ashamed. I thought moving to a Top 5 school district was a good thing. Jason also did not thank me for posting the video about llamas.

    298. jason says:

      Jason has adopted leftist class-warfare rhetoric”

      Dang.

      Even though a victim of such alleged rhetoric, I think I still deserve points from Bitter for being called a leftist.

    299. Bitterlaw says:

      Did the Proud Boys ever say what they are proud about?

    300. Wes says:

      You are delusional, Jason, since you’ve concluded that mendacious, jingoistic popinjay was a great President a great President when he was an objective disaster in the White House.

      As for my criticisms of Trump, 1) I’m not a Republican, and 2) I’ve said Trump consistently got in his own way and undermined himself by invariably launching into narcissistic, thin-skinned rants and making unforced errors like shutting the government down and telling people to blame it all on him.

      Somehow I doubt GWB limited his criticism of Trump to anything like that.

    301. jason says:

      I share a driveway with my neighbor. I bought the snowblower years ago”

      Ah, the snow blower is second hand?

      Ok, it is Bitter’s neighbor that is the suburban elitist, they only share the half mile driveway?

    302. Wobbles says:

      Did the Proud Boys ever say what they are proud about?”

      I don’t care as long as they are for Jeb.

    303. jason says:

      We have plenty of those and most live near me. Third, Jason did not tell me where I can go to hang out with Deplorables ”

      Poor Bitter. “Plenty” of deplorables and they all live close to him, yet he cannot find them.

      Sad.

    304. jason says:

      I can see Bitter’s first campaign ad.

      “I took my snow blower to a local deplorable to have it fixed, even though I can afford $500 to ship it to the factory. I am urging all other suburban elitists in my neighborhood to take my lead in supporting small business deplorables like I do”.

    305. Bitterlaw says:

      I really wish I lived in the house Jason imagines I own. Several similar house on my street are for sale. I could post the links but Jason might buy one and start an illegal llama. farm.

    306. jason says:

      Somehow I doubt GWB limited his criticism of Trump to anything like that.”

      wes claims he is less of a RINO than GWB?

      I’ll take his word for it.

    307. jason says:

      ” I could post the links but Jason might buy one and start an illegal llama. farm.”

      I can see Bitter hates farmers too.

    308. Bitterlaw says:

      $167 to fix it by a local family owned business. $600 to buy a new one from Home Depot. Maybe I can use it in my ad.

    309. jason says:

      Bitter has known me for 15 years. We were office holders together here at HHR.

      Yet he has never invited me to his home.

      He wants to spare me the feeling of inferiority and inadequacy when I see how he lives.

      Very noble of him.

    310. Bitterlaw says:

      I invited you 15 years ago. How slow is your horse?

      Sorry Walt, WV got overtaken by AK and is now in second place in vaccinations per capita.

      AK first state to vaccinate 10% of the population.

      Note CA is the state with the worst distribution vs doses available. Great job by the woke Governor.

    314. Bitterlaw says:

      Bitter has known me for 15 years. We were office holders together here at HHR.

      That should cover me with the allegation by Deplorables of being a suburban elitist. I served 2 terms as the Governor of a blog with an immigrant international businessman who refused to vote for Trump in 2016.

    315. jason says:

      Texas?

      The best distribution.

    316. Bitterlaw says:

      AK first state to vaccinate 10% of the population.

      Wow. They already vaccinated 200 people?

    317. jason says:

      o all,

      Walt and his missus had lunch and visited with Bitter and his lovely wife in Philly.

      Bitter is not overweight.

      He did not wear a sweater.

      He is not a metrosexual.

      He came across as a nice guy, decent person…the kind you would like to have as a friend or neighbor.

      Yes he is opinionated, and unreasonably hates the south due to the slavery and the War Between the States. But I still call him a friend and treat his as such.

      You all need to lay off Mr. Bitter.

    321. Bitterlaw says:

      Thanks, Cash Cow. Would Walt endorse me? If I had an ad with a repaired snowblower and an endorsement by the oldest living being on the planet, that would be a game changer.

    322. jason says:

      Btw, credit where credit is due.

      POST MORTEM OF THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

      Had four chances to vote for him and just could not do it any time.
      But I did not vote for the communists.

      #############################################

      I am not a Trump hater, nor a Trump sycophant.

      I hoped he would be successful, and am surprised that in many ways he WAS and did accomplish much, but he fumbled away lots of opportunities.

      Lots of LOST opportunities.
      ###########################################

      Cow TOLD you four years ago
      to expect a rocky 4 years.
      The opposition he faced as President was unprecedented in Cow’s lifetime (but maybe hot Walt’s).

      Trump lacked the skills necessary to be an effective presidency.

      ZERO years in elective office prior to being president. Abrasive personality. Speaking skills of drunken slug who could not articulate his way out of a paper bag. TERRIBLE communcator.

      WAY too egotistical and stuck on self importance. In many cases, did a BAD job of picking people to surround himself with and help him run the gubment.

      His past and storied history spoke volumes about the inner man and his basic beliefs or lack of them. Financial support of both conservative Rs and liberal Ds, being a registered R, D, Indy, R (spoke to his degree of dedication to a core beliefs, principles and values) serial divorces. Way he ran his businesses.

      He went to war NEEDLESSLY with EVERYONE who disagreed with him on ANYTHING–including lots of fellow Rs over trivial things. Made everything about DJT, instead of a broader more lasting vision. Most evidenced by his view that he was more important than the Republican Party and platform and encouraged and wanted to curry a cult following of supporters.

      But he did have SOME skills that made him effective in some ways. I am rather amazed that (with such huge and visceral opposition by the MSM and by the Ds in congress and governorships etc.) at how much he DID accomplish as President. His SCOTUS picks were wonderful. But he never GREW into the presidency much. Foreign affairs success, trade policy successes, energy policy, lots of others… In lots of ways he tried (with some success) to get America back on a path to being America.

      His decision to mainly try to win reelection by destroying the person of Joe Biden with Trumps classic personal destruction assaults and Joe’s personal attacks and mental decline instead of focusing on policy accomplishments and policy actions going forward failed.

      But even if he were Ronald Reagan, he could not have overcome the documented and widespread fraud and election irregularities in the 2020 mail in election (in my opinion) cost him the election). The mail in ballots scenario opened a wide door for corrupt Ds to, over a period of many, many weeks to game the system fraudulently. The usual mail in/absentee ballot harvesting by corrupt Ds of nursing home/assisted living facility residents was multiplied 100 or 1000 fold. Too many cases of people who showed up to vote being told they already voted by mail, or after the election when contacted about their voting by mail said they never voted at all. IMO, (unproven) many in the D party in key states used technology of voter registration lists and got their hands on enough ballots to simply mail in fictitious Biden ballots of names on the VR list of people who voted 0 or 1 of the last 4 presidential elections. That’s why you are seeing such thousands of voters in state X, Y or Z voting, even thou they moved from there years ago.

      I would not be surprised if a true audit of those voters inn key states showed AT LEAST 10% of those for whom ballots were cast and counted NEVER DID VOTE.

      **********************************************
      Unfathomable to me that, even with all the organized Antifa and BLM riots across the U.S.(where most D governors and mayors refused Trumps offer to help), Trump could win 19 or 20 bellwether counties across the nation in a great economy with no wars and still lose the ECV.

      ##############################################
      BTW, isn’t it strange how after Nov. 3, the daily George Soros funded organized riots pretty much just went away…

    331. jason says:

      I agree with most of Cow’s analysis but not with this.

Most evidenced by his view that he was more important than the Republican Party and platform and encouraged and wanted to curry a cult following of supporters.”

      This is a popular meme with anti-Trumpers but I don’t buy it.

      I think Trump NEEDED to go to war with the MSM or he wouldn’t have survived.

      To those that condemned his tweets, I always said he would be toast without them.

      I also said I doubted he could win the war with the MSM, but that it had to be waged.

      And the fact so many Americans distrust the MSM now we can thank DJT.

      I also don’t agree Trump is a “terrible communicator”. I think he is an excellent communicator.

      Abrasive personality? Ok, but zzzzzzzzz..

      This proves Jason has no concept of reading comprehension. Walt didn’t say Trump shouldn’t fight back against the media. Everyone implies all people, not just the media. I agree with Walt by the way. Trump should have fought against the media conglomerates incessantly attacking him. He definitely shouldn’t have taken the approach of Jason’s sham god, George W. Bush, and done nothing against a relentless onslaught against him.

      He should, however, have been more judicious in his responses and not elevated others while lowering himself by highlighting and responding to the most obscure anti-Trump statements.

      Trump had a plethora of accomplishments as President. He also drowned out his chances to crow about them repeatedly as evidenced by his widely panned first debate performance–which, in retrospect, was likely the occurrence that sealed his electoral defeat.

      With a bit more self-control and a thicker skin, I honestly believe Trump could have survived 2020 and made it to a second term in office.

    341. Gordon Allen says:

      Broken clocks indeed right twice a day. I can barely believe it but I agree with Wes over Jason re GWB. More than Trump,he was a narcissistic frat boy who’s goal in life was to be a two term John Quincy Adams to his father’s one. Once accomplished Bush didn’t give a rats behind about the Republcan Party,up to and including today.
      Whatever vthe merits might be of the Iraq invasion,staying in a forever war to impoi a Jeffersonian Democracy in the Middle East was idiotic.
      Trump was 100% right to call him out on it,and incurring the wrath of the Bush/ Cheney crew

      That is where we disagree.

      If he had not done that, he would not have survived the 4 years.

    355. Phil says:

      Yeah, Lisa. I’ll study those videos. I was hoping my vow to not vote Republican would maybe be enough to keep me out of the prison camps. However, my conservatism is obviously widely known so I’m probably toast. Wonder what they are going to do with you. You have said some pretty brutal things about the new totalitarian left. Will your views on social issues be enough for our new overlords to cut you some slack and keep you out of the joint?

    356. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – No boys have tried to enter girls teams here. I only coach at the rec level so there is no advantage for a 6’5” Senior to beat up on girls. I wonder if these trans players are recruited heavily by colleges. There is no way to compare how a trans male player a foot or more taller than most Hugh school players would do against generally bigger female college athletes. While there are not many 6’ or taller girls, they make up a greater percentage of college than high school teams because there are many fewer college teams. I would like Wizz’s insight.

    357. NYCmike says:

      Bitterlaw,

      I wonder if it will happen on parochial schools more often than public schools, as the church could then be accused of some sort of phobia/-ism.

      Place where my wife works (parochial school) has fielded calls recently asking if they hire LGBTQ.

      I won’t say it’s a conspiracy, but it sure seems coordinated.

    358. WizardofCozz says:

      I live in a pretty rural area, and my house district is one of the most conservative in the state. I have not seen any boys try out for girls athletics yet, but I’ve had more trans students in the last 3-4 years then the rest of my teaching career combined. The amount of kids who identify as “gay” or “trans” is much larger then I’ve ever seen it before. Part of this is the attention they get, I don’t believe all of em are truly “trans” or “gay”, but their is much more acceptance of that lifestyle then ever before.

      And for those wondering, I just had my 3rd leading scorer go down with an ACL injury as well. I’ve now lost 38 ppg scoring out of my starting lineup in the last two weeks. We just took our first loss of the season 52-57. Though I’m not one to complain about officiating but the officials were absolutely brutal, same crew I had in an early season game, and they were brutal then. We had 4 breakaway lay-ups we got hammered on and no call. Huge difference in a two possession game. On top of that my player steps into her shot as she catches and makes a 3 to put us up one and they call her for a travel. I was flaming mad after the game, having said all that we gave up 14 more rebounds, and you can’t get outrebounded like that in a game.

    359. NYCmike says:

      “And for those wondering, I just had my 3rd leading scorer go down with an ACL injury as well.”

      -Sorry for the kid.

      Every time I hear of a kid getting injured, and then I think about Lebron playing at such a high level since high school, and never really missing much time due to injury. He is a really amazing in that sense!

    360. WizardofCozz says:

      ACL tears happen in females at a much high rate than in males, part of that is how the woman’s hips are aligned differently than a males and it puts more stress on the ACL. But My sister was an All-state player, they were undefeated her jr. year and she tore her ACL 7th/8th game into the season, then tore the other ACL her sophomore year of college playing basketball. It just sucks.

    361. NYCmike says:

      “ACL tears happen in females at a much high rate than in males,”

      -Really? Never knew that!

      All I can think of is how the Soviet Union used to deny they even had crime because they were a utopia, they had a serial killer going around that killing boys near railways, but the government didn’t acknowledge it, because that would burst the bubble that things were perfect. We see this same thing playing out today. When lefties (i.e. Antifa) do bad they, the media and other progressive ignore it or explain it away as nothing, because lefties can’t commit crimes or do anything wrong.

      Sports injuries by gender.

      But hey women and men are just social constructs!! LOL

    366. Bitterlaw says:

      Wizz – I am sorry to hear that. I knew that girls were more likely to have knee injuries. I read an article once that 2 of the biggest causes of concussions were soccer and……cheerleading. All that flipping and landing (badly).

      I also remember that around 7th grade as girls develop they are more prone to ankle injuries. I remember one game where 3 girls sprained ankles in 5 minutes. No reason like a slippery floor. Just gawky skinny girls growing faster than their sense of balance can catch up.

      We had our draft for the girls team. 2 coaches pulled their usual stunts. They claimed 2 girls had to be on their team for car pooling (they are old enough to drive). They also wanted one player because they have coached her for years but she isn’t that good. They made her seem like a blind girl in a wheelchair. Their are new coaches in the league. I reminded them that their bad player was their second best scorer and best defender/ball handler last season.

    367. Bitterlaw says:

      Our league once had a deaf referee. He could read lips but it was almost impossible to get a timeout unless he was longer right at you and waving your hands while jumping up and down.

      When I started coaching the older girls, I think the only reason they paired me with a guy in his 60s was because he talked the whole game to the refs. I think I ws there so there would be somebody to finish the game when he got ejected.

      We also had a game when I coached a 7th grade team. The other team was so bad that my girl were winning by 30 points That is extremely rare because I don’t win often and this was in a 32 minute game. The ref, who I have known for years, knew I was doing everything I could to keep from embarassing the other team – more passes, starters out, and defenders fall back into the 3 point arc. He said, “If you call a timeout, I will call a technical foul and eject you.” Everybody just wanted the game to end.

      Government being unleashed on one of the few competitors to Twitter and the rest of big tech is a huge red flag and another chilling step towards limiting and snuffing out freedom of speech as a way to silence dissent.

      You didn’t like his tweets and voted for him? Why? Because there were bigger fish to fry.

      Trump got more votes and a higher percentage of the vote than the first time around. So who exactly that voted for him the first time didn’t vote for him the second time?

    375. Wobbles says:

      See Biden’s actions against COVID are already working.

      The man is a genius.

      “Covid-19 cases are declining in 46 states, reducing pressure on long-burdened hospitals. But the U.S. hasn’t yet seen the full fallout from the earlier infections, and deaths are likely to keep mounting at a brisk pace.

      In 42 of those states, the seven-day case average has fallen more than 10% from a week earlier, while the other four had more modest drops, according to Covid Tracking Project data. Overall, the U.S. seven-day average is down 20% from a week ago, to 192,825, because the drop is much greater in some states — down 39% in Missouri, for instance.

      Speaking at a White House press briefing Thursday, Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the virus “might actually be plateauing.”

    376. jason says:

      Fauci calls Biden a liar.

      Give him another medal.

      “Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, refuted a claim by the Biden administration that the outgoing Trump administration left no plan for distributing coronavirus vaccines.”

    377. jason says:

      The US now has about 45 million people who either had the virus or was vaccinated, assuming not many who have already had it are being vaccinated.

      That should start having an impact on the case and mortality numbers, since roughly 1 in 7 people are not spreading the virus.

      Probably 1 in 5 if you only consider only over 16.

      At a time when the United States, and especially Alaska, is struggling to deal with the impacts of #COVID19, I am astounded to see that the Biden administration’s “day one” priority puts our economy, jobs, and nation’s security at risk.”
      —————————-

      astounded … lol … good one!

    382. lisab says:

      So this is where I feel like Republicans especially these mainstream Republicans are disingenuous
      —————————————–

      well … one reason 🙂

    383. Phil says:

      I can assure you Murkowski doesn’t give a sh*t. It’s all for consumption by the public in her state. Like most of her Senate Republican Caucus colleagues, it’s just a bunch of meaningless words. She’s essentially fine with the Biden policies. Yucking it up in the cloakrooms with her pals as she screws the over the deplorable peasants.

    384. Phil says:

      Yes, she’s genuinely “astounded”.

    385. lisab says:

      ask yourself this?

      could Murkowski simply declare herself a democrat?

      probably … so she is in no danger at all.

    386. lisab says:

      Yes, she’s genuinely “astounded”
      ——————————–

      just like i am astounded that robbie is already worried about the state of the republican party now that trump is gone.

      i mean … who could have predicted that?!

    387. Bitterlaw says:

      Why would she do that when she votes with Republicans most of the time?

    388. Phil says:

      Democrat, Republican. Doesn’t matter The two parties in DC are on pretty much the same – the elitists, the establishment….whatever you want to call it.

      We’re on the other team. No longer a party thing at all.

    389. Bitterlaw says:

      Wizz – I was curious about Kansas Girls basketball. I saw a game with a final score of 80-3. The winning coach was either trying to run it up OR doing everything possible against a really bad team to not score 100.

    390. Phil says:

      Ah, yes. Our friend Robbie. Always just so worried about the Republican Party. Always Always Always Always Always Always…..

    391. Bitterlaw says:

      Murk has a 73% ACU rating. Not great but not a Dem.

    392. jason says:

      I am astounded to see that the Biden administration’s “day one” priority puts our economy, jobs, and nation’s security at risk.”

      Unbelievable. Astounded?

      Like she thought Biden would not actually follow up on his agenda?

    393. jason says:

      I have an idea a lot of the establishment Rs are going to be “astounded”.

    394. Phil says:

      Who cares what intermural faction she plays for. She’s an establishment elitist. Party doesn’t mean a damned thing if you are in DC. She’s getting hers.

      It’s really all you need to know.

    395. jason says:

      She should resign in shame just for that statement.

    396. Phil says:

      You mean SAY they are astounded. Again, it’s for public consumption.

    397. jason says:

      Whatever….

      If she is really astounded, she is naive and incompetent.

      If she is not, she is a despicable liar.

      Take your pick.

    398. Phil says:

      I choose door number two, Monty.

    399. jason says:

      Note that Bitter jumps to her defense. Now why would that be?

    400. lisab says:

      i am astounded Bitterlaw would stick up for Murkowski

      i would have thought he would stand up for the deplorables …

      oh wait … actually i am relatively unruffled

    401. Phil says:

      Yeah, Lisa. That is truly astounding. Never figured on that alright. Astounding I say.

      LOL

    402. WizardofCozz says:

      The issue with ks basketball is that the bad teams are really bad. We also have a running click if you are up 30 in the 4th.

    403. Bitterlaw says:

      Note that Bitter jumps to her defense. Now why would that be?

      Because the voters in Alaska think she is Republican enough and conservative enough to keep sending her back to the Senate. She represents them and not Phil in Texas or Bitter and Jason in PA. If she sucks that bad, maybe the GOP could primary her with a challenger who could win a general election. However, Trump only got 53% in 2020 so Alaska is closer to purple than crimson.

    404. Bitterlaw says:

      i would have thought he would stand up for the deplorables …

      I did. I think there is a very high percentage of deplorables in rural and working class Alaska and they keep sending her back to DC.

    405. Bitterlaw says:

      Wizz – Because you are smarter than I am, you won’t identify your school. Good luck the rest of the way. Hopefully your other players can step up their defense to somewhat compensate for the hit to the offense.

    406. Bitterlaw says:

      Murkowski sucks in many ways. She is better than a Democrat. Both can be true.

    407. Phil says:

      They play on the same team. Just part of the DC intramural game.

    408. NYCmike says:

      “Murk has a 73% ACU rating. Not great but not a Dem.”

      -Back to using ACU ratings…..let’s see how consistent Bitterlaw is….do Rand Paul now.

    409. NYCmike says:

      “However, Trump only got 53% in 2020 so Alaska is closer to purple than crimson.”

      -Just so happened that the Democrats really pushed VBM up in Alaska this year…..and got their largest totals ever! SHOCKING!!

    410. Bitterlaw says:

      They play on the same team. Just part of the DC intramural game.

      Zzzzzzzzzzzzz. She voted for 2 of 3 SCOTUS picks. A Democrat would have voted no on all 3. I know Phil taught history and not math but he should know that 2 is more than 0.

    411. Phil says:

      My math is fine.

      She voted against Kavanaugh on the basis of pure made up vicious lies. Tells you all you need to know about her. She’s all yours. You can have her.

    412. lisab says:

      so the average republican in alaska would have voted against kavanaugh?

      VBM may have been a factor but so was not having a significant 3rd place candidate in 2020

    414. NYCmike says:

      I’m fine with Murk…..but if a viable candidate comes along, I hope they step up and defeat her.

      Another 4% and Joe Miller would have gotten rid of her……too bad he lost.

    415. Bitterlaw says:

      My math is fine.

      She voted against Kavanaugh on the basis of pure made up vicious lies.

      Your math is worse than Cory the Canadian if you think 2=0. A Democrat in her seat would have also voted no based on pure made up vicious lies AND also voted against Gorsuch and Barrett.

    416. Bitterlaw says:

      I’m fine with Murk…..but if a viable candidate comes along, I hope they step up and defeat her.

      Another 4% and Joe Miller would have gotten rid of her……too bad he lost.

      This will stun most of you but I agree with NYC. Too bad Miller sucked. If Alaska Republicans can replace her with a better Republican who will win the GE, they should. If they will just defeat her and hand the seat to a Democrat, I am not on board.

    417. Phil says:

      She voted against Kavanaugh….on the basis of brutal character assassination. A decent person doesn’t make that call.

      Now she says she’s “astounded”

      Worthless.

    418. lisab says:

      well alaska is a very liberal state

    419. Bitterlaw says:

      A decent person doesn’t make that call.

      Democrats would make that call every time and you apparently are willing to accept them making that call. 1% Rule – Even if a Republican only gives you 1% of what you want, they are better than the Democrat who will give you nothing. If you want a Republican candidate who gives you everything you want, go for it but don’t bitch if they lose the GE. You just got the Democrat who will give you 100% of what you do not want.

    420. Bitterlaw says:

      well alaska is a very liberal state

      Then we are lucky to even get as much as we get from the imperfect Murk.

    421. jason says:

      f she sucks that bad, maybe the GOP could primary her with a challenger who could win a general election”

      She is certainly better than a certified idiot like Joe Miller.

      But that is really a low bar.

    422. lisab says:

      you guys should really be quiet and listen to your better

      you deplorables never listen

    423. Phil says:

      It’s not a Republican Democratic thing any longer.

      It’s the elites vs those of us out here.

      Murkowski and company aren’t ever going to bat for us. She plays on the team Elite.

      Astounded she says. What a lying weasel.

    424. Bitterlaw says:

      I have tried to avoid asking this question but I am not going to be silent any more.

      When jason copies and pastes something, why does he cut off the first letter of the first word and add ” at the end? Every post for more than a decade.

      I know lisab must not have a shift key or she loves ee cummings or she just hates capital letters.

    425. jason says:

      The R party needs to have a civil war.

      I won’t be part of it but if I was, I wouldn’t be on Murkowski’s side.

    426. Phil says:

      I know, Lisa. We’re just to dumb to get it. Romney and company keep trying to explain it all to us.

    427. jason says:

      hen jason copies and pastes something, why does he cut off the first letter of the first word and add ” at the end? Every post for more than a decade.”

      Trademark.

      That way you know it is really me.

    428. Bitterlaw says:

      I won’t be part of it but I will make thousands of posts about it until Dave shuts this place down.

      Fixed it.

    429. Bitterlaw says:

      Brilliant. Of course, now that the code is cracked, it will have to be changed. Sorry.

    430. jason says:

      I won’t be part of it but I will make thousands of posts about it until Dave shuts this place down.

      Fixed it.”

      I will be an observer of the civil war.

      It couldn’t happen to a nicer party.

    431. Phil says:

      ….and as always, I will bring the popcorn.

    432. jason says:

      Any GOP senator that is now “astounded” by Biden’s agenda shouldn’t be a GOP senator.

    433. jason says:

      I used to defend Murkowski here when I was loyal to the GOP. I was certainly glad when she kept a moron like Joe Miller, or the Democrat, from winning.

      But now I see her as another member of the tiny tent GOP that I see as doomed to failure.

      I hope she gets primaried like Liz Cheney, the 9 GOP idiots that voted for impeachment, Sasse, Romney, etc.

      There is a chance a deadender will win the primary and lose the GE. But I think it is time to take that chance. These people don’t deserve to be in office.

    434. jason says:

      Brilliant. Of course, now that the code is cracked, it will have to be changed. Sorry.”

      No problem.

    437. Phil says:

      Don’t do it, Jason. Order any of that kind of stuff and you’re going to the re-education camp. If you do purchase one. do it with cash and wrap it in a blanket until you get home. Whatever you do, do not use your credit card.

    438. jason says:

      Not worried Phil.

      Maybe the food is good at the re-education camp.

    439. lisab says:

      Radnor has 1 McDonalds. A Target (where the K-Mart used to be). 3 Wawas. 2 Starbucks. TJ Max and Old Navy. GAP closed because of COVID shutdown killing it. 1 country club (almost all Democrats). It also has 4 colleges – Villanova, Rosemont, Cabrini and Eastern University. Bryn Mawr College touches the Radnor border but is in Lower Merion. It also has Valley Forge Military Academy (where the movie Taps was filmed). Lisab would appreciate that it has Dunkin Donuts and 2 CVS pharmacies.

    445. Bitterlaw says:

      Wizz – Elkhart is going to fade down the stretch.

      I am very impressed with your program. Remember to tell your players that there is no “I” in team but there are 2 “I”s in statistics.

    448. lisab says:

      sooooooo … what is the address of that mcdonald’s in radnor?

    449. Bitterlaw says:

      https://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en-us/location/pa/bryn-mawr/1257-lancaster-ave/10698.html?cid=RF:YXT:GMB::Clicks

      I think the parking lot is Radnor but the store is Lower Merion, it is right on the county line.

    450. lisab says:

      1257 Lancaster Ave
      Bryn Mawr, Pa 19010
      ————————–
      no … i meant the mcdonald’s you said was in radnor

      not bryn mawr

    451. Bitterlaw says:

      In our area, there are names for unincorporated areas (many linked to train stations on the Main Line). Radnor Township contains part of Bryn Mawr (the part in Delaware County): part of Newtown Square, St. David’s, Ithan, Villanova and Wayne, Chester County touches the western border and Montgomery County touches the northern and eastern border.

    452. Bitterlaw says:

      Bryn Mawr is divided between Lower Merion Township (Montgomery County) and Radnor Township (Delaware County).

    453. lisab says:

      it just seems like if it was in radnor

      mcdonald’s would list its address as radnor

      not bryn mawr

    454. Bitterlaw says:

      If you send mail to me you can send it to Bryn Mawr, PA or Rosemont, PA and it will get to me.

      What is your point? I am fortunate that my wife and I worked hard to live where we live.

    455. Bitterlaw says:

      There is no town named Radnor. There is no town named Bryn Mawr. I explained the Township structures.

    456. lisab says:

      If you send mail to me you can send it to Bryn Mawr, PA or Rosemont, PA and it will get to me.
      ————————————————

      mmmmmkay … but it is not actually in radnor then

    457. Bitterlaw says:

      Are you this stupid? I explained that part of “Bryn Mawr” is in Radnor Township. There is no Mayor of Ryan Mawr, there is no Bryn Mawr council.

    458. Bitterlaw says:

      I have the same zip code as the McDonald’s.

    459. lisab says:

      There is no Mayor of Ryan Mawr, there is no Bryn Mawr council.
      ———————–

      i did not ask if there was a mayor or council in bryn mawr …

      so you make the laws for them, but you don’t actually let them use the same zip code or city name?

    460. lisab says:

      you are gonna a LOT of fun with cnn 🙂

    461. lisab says:

      i’m guessing no walmart then too?

    462. Bitterlaw says:

      The Wal-Mart is in King of Prussia, next town over.

      The part of Bryn Mawr that is in Radnor Township is 19010. Like me. There are also 19073, 19080, 19085, 19087, 19088, and 19089 in Radnor Township.

    463. lisab says:

      sooooooo … to keep up real estate values, you don’t let the rabble use your town name?

    464. Bitterlaw says:

      The part of Bryn Mawr in Radnor Township is in the 7th Ward. If I had won my last election, I would be the Commissioner for the ward.

    465. lisab says:

      sooooooo … you would have made the laws and taxed them …

      but not let them benefit from actually living in radnor.

    466. lisab says:

      that’s actually a pretty good plan

      if you are one of the people who get to use the city name radnor

    467. Bitterlaw says:

      The people looking to buy in the area can understand a map. When you have a top school district people want to buy.

    468. lisab says:

      the british used to do something similar to us in lexington

      eventually we shot them

    469. lisab says:

      but i get it …

      you don’t want the riff raff in your town

      but you want their money

    470. Bitterlaw says:

      Most of the businesses in Radnor Township are in an area called Wayne but lisab could never grasp that it is a designation of an area on a map but not a city or town. Giant supermarket is in St. David’s but, again, it is just part of Radnor Township.

    471. Bitterlaw says:

      You called them riff-raff, I did not. I would call the people or shoppers.

    472. lisab says:

      i was asking about radnor proper

    473. lisab says:

      You called them riff-raff, I did not.
      ———–

      well … not to their face!

    474. lisab says:

      so does it bother you that you financially benefit — a lot — from those people who work hard at low wages to prop up your city

      but don’t get to benefit from like you do?

    475. lisab says:

      it is a good system

      for those who live in radnor

    476. lisab says:

      can i just mention

      as an aside

      it is FREAKING COLD in minnesota now …

      it is -16 here

    477. lisab says:

      -22 with wind chill

    478. lisab says:

      well anyway … to recap

      when it comes to passing laws and taking their money

      apparently mcdonald’s is in radnor …

      but … when it comes to benefiting from property values … not so much

      good plan

    479. JeffP says:

      Cocaine Mitch and establishment GOP will work with Dems to convict Trump so he can not run in 2024 and kill off the MAGA movement. That is more important than any GOP majorities in DC. They don’t care if he’s innocent. It’s about power and globalist agenda.

    480. Gordon Allen says:

      A impeachment ” conviction” is a nullity as it is patently unconstitutional as against a private citizen.Its legal effect is like confetti in a windstorm.
      If tried and supported by Republicans that will be their suicide note; I’m certain then that Trump will support founding a new party. They’re pretty stupid,but are they that stupid??

    481. jason says:

      Bitter is not elitist but said I was a Sheetz kind of person because I a from York, while he is a superior WaWa’s kind of person since he lives in Radnor.

      This is true, no WaWa around here.

    482. jason says:

      Dr. Fauci goes from CNN darling to “Trump holdover” because he refuted the claim that there was no vaccine rollout plan in the Trump administration.

      “Fauci, a holdover from the Trump administration, said about the previous admin’s vaccine distribution efforts: “You can’t say it was absolutely not usable at all.”

    483. jason says:

      They must be as “astounded” as Murkowski.

      “The pipefitters’ union @battleground_ua
      is mad that @JoeBiden
      killed Keystone XL and, with it, tens of thousands of jobs.

      The union endorsed Biden for president.

      Biden has questions to answer. But so does the union leadership”

    484. jason says:

      I am going to start a list of “astounded” people and organizations.

    485. jason says:

      Cocaine Mitch and establishment GOP will work with Dems to convict Trump so he can not run in 2024 and kill off the MAGA movement.”

      I checked the betting markets on this. They seem to think it is highly unlikely they can get to 67 votes.

      About 6-1 against on Predictit, so you can make some money.

      I really don’t see where they can get more than 55 votes, and rumor is that even Romney is now waffling. He has softened his stance on Hawley, too, saying that while he doesn’t agree with him “Hawley had the right to bring up the objection”.

    486. Bitterlaw says:

      Wawa has better food than Sheetz. I don’t know why they have not pushed further West.

    487. jason says:

      I looked at the WaWa menu.

      The caviar sandwiches look delicious. I see the coffee is from organic non-gmo sustainable eco friendly non carbon generating equitable employment farms.

    488. jason says:

      I don’t know why they have not pushed further West.”

      Come on. It is a business decision. Would you still go there if they were also selling to deplorables?

    489. jason says:

      Of course, there is really nothing I could eat at Sheetz, full disclosure.

      They have deep fried french toast sticks. Geezus.

    490. Bitterlaw says:

      Since I am not a socialist it does not bother me that some people who work at McDonald’s or any other place in my town. I say some because other residents, especially high school and college students, do work in those businesses.

    491. jason says:

      Ma, there is some circling of the bait, no real bite.

    492. jason says:

      Maybe this is why Predicit now 70-30 against McConnell voting to impeach.

      “Lindsey Graham claims Mitch McConnell told the Republican conference that he was offended by the House impeachment process. He goes on to claim he thinks they’ll pick up one or more Democrat votes and says “the president has a very good legal team”

    493. Bitterlaw says:

      should be some don’t live here.

      It also never bothered me that when I lived in Philadelphia that I could not afford to live in the $5 million penthouses on Rittenhouse Square three blocks away. I lived in a Trinity – similar to a twin but three attached homes. It was 13 feet wide but had 4 floors. 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. I was happy there.

    494. jason says:

      Sounds like McConnell thinks Manchin will not vote for impeachment.

      Color me skeptical.

    495. jason says:

      Dang, Bitter had 2 1/2 baths in college and I don’t even have indoor plumbing now?

      Snifff……

    496. Bitterlaw says:

      The house was when I got married. Actually, when we were first married, we rented an apartment on the 4th floor of a building without an elevator. We bought the house when she was pregnant. Of course there was no elevator in the house but our bedroom was on the third floor. Never needed a stair master when you live in a 4 story building.

      Bitter is a heck of a guy.

      To keep his pregnant wife from walking up 4 flights of stairs he bought a house where she only had to walk up 3 flights.

    498. jason says:

      But I am generous that way too. I bought my wife this ergonomic butter churning paddle, saves her 5 minutes on each load of butter.

    499. Phil says:

      It’s Friday…….and Murkowski is still astounded.

    500. Bitterlaw says:

      Our son’s room was on the 4th floor but he obviously was carried until he could walk. To be clear, I did not buy my wife a house. We bought it together.

      Why don’t I ever get any of this butter?

    501. jason says:

      CNN:

      “Co-host Alejandra Campoverdi said she was happy to see love back in the White House “again.”

      Referring to first lady Jill Biden’s stare at the president during his swearing-in, she said, “did you see her look when she was holding the Bible, did you see how she was looking at him? You can’t fake that. To see a couple in love like that in the White House, two couples in love like that in the White House, again.”

    502. jason says:

      Sorry, non pasteurized, can’t be shipped.

      But when you invite me to your house I will bring some.

      So is the pipe fitter’s union.

    505. jason says:

      So democratic. But I am that way too. I let her pick the color of the mailbox.

    506. jason says:

      So get rid of him too, since he is obviously a victim of the Stockholm Syndrome.

      “House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy is standing by Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, as their conference has devolved into a bitter feud following President Donald Trump’s incitement of the Capitol riot and the Democratic push to impeach him, which Cheney voted for on Wednesday.

      A spokesman for McCarthy told CNN that the California Republican, who voted against impeachment, does not support efforts to remove Cheney as House Republican conference chair following a backlash over her vote.”

    507. jason says:

      Bitter to claim there should be “unity” with Liz Cheney in 3, 2, 1….

      Mitch joins the ranks of the “astounded”

      Leader McConnell
      @LeaderMcConnell
      The failed Paris deal will hurt American families while China and Russia grow emissions.

      The Keystone cancellation will kill union jobs and hurt U.S. energy security.

      And a proposal to gut immigration enforcement and give blanket amnesty?

      Rough “day one” for American workers.”

      Shut up, Mitch.

      We aren’t buying it any longer.

      Reason # 134 why the Philly burbs are not “coming back”.

      “Temple University’s official news service counted its funding of “anti-racism education” as one of its “proudest moments” of 2020, alongside groundbreaking Alzheimer’s, HIV, and COVID-19 research.

      Temple, a public university in Philadelphia, said that its investment of “$1 million in anti-racism education and programming at the university” — which supported the launch of its “Center for Anti-Racism Research” — was part of “the good to come out of this year.”

      Temple launched the new program in “response to the Black Lives Matter protests and renewed awareness of racial and social inequality.” The school announced in October that it would add four new faculty members to lead the initiative.

      Ibram X. Kendi, leader of Boston University’s Center for Antiracist Research and author of How to Be an Antiracist, graduated from Temple’s Department of Africology and African American Studies.

      As Campus Reform reported in July, Temple University announced that it would divest from the Philadelphia Police Foundation. The funds to the charity were reallocated “to support social justice programs at the university.”

    512. Wobbles says:

      for Friday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Forty-five percent (45%) disapprove.”

      This poll shows Biden is a shoo-in for re-election in 2024.

    513. Phil says:

      Naw, Jason. Come on. This kind of stuff won’t influence the future voting patterns of the suburbs.

      Trump is gone now. That’s all that matters. They are going to swing back to their old voting patterns now that orange man bad is no more. You watch. Indoctrination in the public schools is overrated. Nothing to see here.

    514. Cash Cow TM says:

      WHERE MY DAMNED ANTIFA/BLM RIOTS AT?

      11,000 pipeline workers laid off by Biden executive order.

      Biden executive order to require everyone to wear a mask.

      Another executive order to require boys to play girls sports.

      4,000 sadly died from COVID on Biden’s FIRST day!

      Cross dressing white guy from PA appointed the be 2nd in command at DHHR.

      No front line in the streets Antifa captains appointed yet to ANY federal government jobs.

      No public executions of random business owners.

      Conservatives still walking around and not yet in reeducation camp prisons.

      Republicans still allowed to vote.

      WHERE MY ANTIFA/BLM RIOTS AT!

    515. jason says:

      Republicans still allowed to vote.”

      Except their vote is diluted and no longer counts as much as a Dem vote.

    516. Cash Cow TM says:

      Dominion says 3/5th of a vote for every R voter is still a (partial) vote.

    517. jason says:

      Wolf says R votes in Radnor will count as 0.8 of a Dem vote, while here in York it will be 0.6, on account Radnor is WaWa country and York is Sheetz country.

    518. Phil says:

      Robbie should be here any minute to question why a Trump voter should count as a full vote anyway given how worthless those white racist trailer trash deplorables are.

    519. Phil says:

      Article of impeachment to be sent to the Senate on Monday. This means under Senate current procedure the trial must begin within 24 hours of that. Request to have the trial delayed until February 11th for defense team to prepare their defense was denied by Schumer.

      Ate with my breakfast group this morning. The subject of impeachment of out of office Trump was the first thing that came up. To a man (and our one gal) they were furious. All vowed to never give another cent to Republicans ever again. They are as done as I am.

      Fortunately, none of us are needed now that the Republicans have the suburbs all sewed up. Never mind that three of our group actually live in the suburbs and have always been staunch Republicans – until now that is.

    520. jason says:

      All vowed to never give another cent to Republicans ever again. They are as done as I am.”

      Meanwhile, Bitter is still searching for “common ground”.

    521. WizardofCozz says:

      People have opened their eyes to these R’s pandering to them when they can’t do anything of significance but stabbing them in the back when it counts. Whether they liked Trump or not they all should have been saying no to any impeachment talk, and those that maybe didn’t like his rhetoric should have kept their mouths shut, cause that would have been the politically smart move, but only D’s seem to make smart political decisions. Same thing with the GA Senate race and Pres election theft. R’s to a T should have been out their going, we don’t know if the election was stolen or not, but for the good of the nation we want a signature audit, which would no matter which way the audit goes would have given finality to the election. But no, they let their egos and hatred of Trump and his “deplorables” get in their own way.

    522. Phil says:

      Well, the good news is impeachment gets Robbie on board for the Republican Party going forward. Of course the eight of us in my breakfast club are off the train….not exactly a net plus for Republicans. Of course my arithmetic calculations of a net loss might be totally off. Bitter said last night my math skills were lacking.

    523. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – Your memory is pretty bad, too. Earlier this week I said that losing people like you, Jason, Tina and Tgca was bad for the party. I also said exchanging an imperfect Republican for a Democrat was never the right move.

      As for where I live, it is certainly not a mansion or estate. It is the best school district closest to where my wife and I worked and could afford to live. Choosing the best school district used to be considered the right thing to do.

    524. jason says:

      Heh…

      “Trump Offers to Let National Guard Stay at the Trump Hotel D.C. After Parking Garage Outrage”

    525. jason says:

      We have Nationalguardgate, the first scandal of the Biden administration.

      The two soldiers, who are noncommissioned officers in the Maryland National Guard, said troops inhaled exhaust fumes, shared few toilets with hundreds of soldiers and struggled to sleep under the harsh fluorescent lights.

      “I’ve never in my entire career felt like I’ve been booted onto the curb and told, ‘Figure it out on your own,’ ” said one of the soldiers, who said he served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak with reporters.

      “This is absurd,” said the other soldier, who said one of his men was nearly struck by a car…

      One portable toilet used by soldiers was overflowing onto the sidewalk, a photo obtained by The Post shows.”

    526. jason says:

      Schumer just said the National Guard situation was “not acceptable”, throws Biden under bus.

      I am sure Mitch, Mitt, Ben and Lynne will make sure they “pay” a price for this!

    529. Bitterlaw says:

      That was quick. Well, they needed an excuse for Biden to resign for “health reasons.” Might as well use the National Guard.

    530. lisab says:

      Phil,

      how could you and your breakfast buddies be so cruel as to let bitterlaw live in a 4 story house WITHOUT an elevator?!

    531. NYCmike says:

      Bitterlaw,

      They will try to keep Joe around until after 2022, as I believe if Kamala takes over before that, she would only be eligible to run for 1 more term after serving out Biden’s.

    532. lisab says:

      in my union, before the election, there was actually talk of “retrenchment” …

      which is what teachers call layoffs. it almost never happens, usually they just pay people to retire.

      anyway … now it is “everything is back to normal”

      we are even back in schools again … it is amazing how that coincided with biden being sworn in. i am sure it was a total coincidence.

    533. lisab says:

      “By revoking the Keystone pipeline permit, Biden is destroying 11,000 jobs and roughly $2 billion in wages,” the post says. “Democrats couldn’t even get through Day 1 without killing jobs for middle class Americans.”

    534. Phil says:

      Astounded I say!!

    535. lisab says:

      he is just “shocked”

      “when we threw the election to biden, we assumed he was going to protect american jobs, not get all our workers laid off his first day in office.

      and i don’t understand how the oil company can just lay off thousands of pipeline workers just because the pipeline is now cancelled?”

    538. NYCmike says:

      I could say this for sure:

      Joe Miller would not be “astounded” by these actions, even though some at HHR call him stupid.

      Sarah Palin would not be “astounded” by these actions, even though some at HHR call her stupid.

      I will say having Cesar Chavez and RFK, in my opinion, is an embarrassment, if those are your choices instead of Churchill.

      Good for MLK and Rosa Parks, it’s nice they get some time to hang out in the Oval Office.

      well, it was a gift from the uk as a symbol of our friendship with the uk … and obama famously gave it back (or tried to), and then trump re-accepted it

      so, that is why

    543. lisab says:

      especially with obama it was seen as an anti-colonialism move

      because of kenya

      Ok, so lend it to a museum so others can see it.

    545. Bitterlaw says:

      Why would anybody run for office if they did not think they could do the job? Phil and Jason would be the best candidates but Phil lives in Texas and Jason won’t run for office. So it falls to me.

    546. lisab says:

      i’m no supporter of churchill, good war leader, total dik as a person

      but that is the background

      after years of standing by us in iraq and afghanistan, obama decided to give the gift back.

      in fairness, biden probably thought it was a bust of trump

    547. lisab says:

      So it falls to me.

      “Why would anybody run for office if they did not think they could do the job?”

      -Why would anybody NOT THINK they could do the job that most of the elected representatives are doing?

      The better question would be if you could do a good job actually representing the people who vote for you.

    551. Bitterlaw says:

    556. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      So President Biden, who campaigned on renewing and strengthening close relations with our European allies, removed the Churchill statute from the Oval Office. It is already being commented on by the British press.

    557. Phil says:

      Yeah, but the American media loves it.

    558. jason says:

      NOW he tells us…

      Biden: “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”

    559. jason says:

      Bloomberg desperately searching for bad news on COVID…can only come up with this.

      “Hospitalizations due to Covid-19 are rising in 4 states or territories in the U.S., including 2 reaching their highest number since the beginning of the pandemic. California leads all states with at least 20,408 patients now hospitalized, but 3 states still have a higher rate per capita.”

    560. jason says:

      That hospitalizations are falling in dozens of states….crickets.

    561. jason says:

      Joe Miller would not be “astounded” by these actions, even though some at HHR call him stupid.”

      Joe Miller IS stupid. This statement alone should disqualify anyone from the senate.

      Stupid is generous for Joe Miller.

    563. NYCmike says:

      “Stupid is generous for Joe Miller.”

      -Yet, he would not have been “astounded” by Biden’s actions……..hopefully, jason will recognize his error in belittling certain voters/citizens/candidates……the same thing he is accusing Bitterlaw of doing.

    564. jason says:

      Yet, he would not have been “astounded” by Biden’s actions”

      We don’t know that, actually, do we?

      This guy thought East Germany was a model for border control…

    565. jason says:

      he same thing he is accusing Bitterlaw of doing”

      I am accusing Bitter of not understanding where the future of the R party is if it wants to remain viable.

      I don’t actually think he is belittling me for living in York, but don’t tell him.

    566. NYCmike says:

      “We don’t know that, actually, do we?”

      -I notice that you didn’t go after Palin in the same way, so I will give you this point.

    567. jason says:

      Palin is no Joe Miller.

    568. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – I think York looks like a nice place. I am sure the people are nice there.

      Don’t tell Jason.

    569. Bitterlaw says:

      CNN capitalizes groups of people – White, Black, etc. Good thing they are not trying to divide people.

    570. jason says:

      Bitter is talking about York in England of course.

    571. jason says:

      I would have no problem with Palin in the Senate.

      Probably where she would be now had not McCain picked her for VP.’

      Looking back, that ruined her political career.

      NYC – Jason may think that I like York in England. However, I am referring to York, PA.

      ###########################################
      I pick March 28, 2022.
      Because my friend Clara V. Oyant picked that date.

      Is the winner the CLOSEST to the last day Biden is President, or would it be closest without going over?

      For instance, If Biden’s last day as president is March 29, 2022, would I be the winner since I am the closest? Or am I automatically out since March 28 came and went and Biden was still in the oval oriface?

      NYC got me thinking about that thing that Biden would have to last 2 years so that Kameltoah can finish almost 2 years and then get elected to two more POTUS terms… hmmm…Best strategy for the Dems is not to have Biden declared incompetent until just after his first two years are under his belt. ..hmmm…

      And as president, will she pick AOC or one of the other B.S. crazies? Oh, I just threw up a little in my mouth.

      After the disasterous 2022 midterms where Republicans gain House seats and 6 Senate seats, Joe Biden steps down for “health reasons” on November 10, 2022. Congressman-elect Bitterlaw (Big Tent R) tells Jason, Phil and lisab to suck it.

    586. Bitterlaw says:

      50 House seats.

    587. Phil says:

      In your dreams.

      now now Phil,

      the gop has learned from their mistakes

      from now on they are going to be very careful with their candidate choices

      no more:
      * iraq war veterans
      * doctors
      * successful business men
      * mayors or state reps with lots of political experience, and strong ties to their constituents
      * lawyers who have fought for the little guy for years, like public defenders, or civil rights lawyers
      * no more prosecutors who have cleaned up the mean streets

      what the gop establishment really wants is an insurance lawyer

      who fights for the insurance companies, against employees

    592. Bitterlaw says:

      Lisab must not realize that employers do not like fraud or abuse of the system by employees. I guess she would approve of a cashier who sustained a bruised foot when a can of peas fell on it and collected 90% of her wages tax free for 3 years until I got the case and terminated her benefits. She must also approve of the worker who claimed he could not work as a security guard because his back hurt but was caught on surveillance video going on fire runs and pulling hoses. I settled many more cases for a fair amount that their lawyers agreed to.

      I don’t know why she has such contempt for. I thought I was my harshest critic but lisab is making a strong case that she is the most anti-Bitterlaw person here.

    593. Phil says:

      Yes, bitter, the GOP voters are going to turn out in droves in 2022 spurred on and excited by the likes of Liz Chaney, Sasse, Romney, Toomey and all the other DC Republican elites. We like being told how horrible and cult like we are by our party “leaders”. Who wouldn’t be fired up by a bunch of snobby, condescending elitists who spend their time insulting us? Well, at least they are honest about their disdain. I’ll give them that. Not sure how that is supposed to transfer into fifty seats. However, I’ll be sure and pass your rosy outlook onto my breakfast club members….none of which now have the slightest intention of voting for or giving a cent to the GOP. Good luck. You’re going to need a ton of it.

      while the people in radnor probably think that an insurance lawyer who will save them from the rabble will make a great nominee

      i am sure there are many potential candiates, from my list above, who have long track records of serving the country and helping people … veterans, prosecutors, public defenders, state reps, mayors of cities etc.

      people who prepared themselves through their choice of career to be a nominee in a competitive district

      Bitter, one of my sisters represented businesses and public agencies in workers compensation litigation. I have seen many of the videos, and the fraud is appalling. When the fraudster is a public employee; the taxpayers end up paying higher for it in higher taxes; likewise private companies have to increase their prices to cover bogus workers compensation claims. What you do is a valuable public service that we should all appreciate.

      but my issue is not that … companies have the right to hire lawyers

    601. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      609. Are you referring to the mean ol’ insurance companies that send PIs out who discover a former worker, who claimed he was confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life as a result of a work-related injury, is now climbing scaffolding and putting a new roof on his vacation home? Oddly, when earlier the insurance company sent him a letter inquiring if he was still unable to work because of his injury, he replied in the affirmative.

      Here is the current Washington Post Scorecard for Conviction on the Impeachment Charge. In sum, 28 Republicans are a firm NO and NONE are a YES. So Trump needs SIX of the 28 to vote NO and just perusing the list of undecideds, The Donald will easily prevail.

      Some of those “open to convict” are not really open.

      Inhofe is not going to convict. Neither is Capito. Or Shelby.

      Neither are some of the “unknown”.

      Kennedy objected to the results, he is not convicting Trump. Neither is Crapo or Fisher or Lee.

      I think it IS going to stop for a lot of people, especially as it relates to voting for and supporting the R party.

      But hey, maybe your Biden voting R friends will make up the slack.

      I don’t think “Trump is no longer President” so “eat sh-t and die” is a winning formula, but maybe it is just me.

      Translation: yeah, you deplorables need to eat sh-t and get onboard, we want your vote now but we didn’t care about it before because it was for Trump.

      GFY. That is not what I said. You know that is not what I meant. You know that there is no way to stop what you claim to oppose except voting and you won’t do it. Now, you have adopted this smug “I am better than everybody because I won’t vote.” persona. It is just the flip side of your sanctimonious Never Trump persona in 2016. The greatest irony is that YOU are the elitist and always have been. 2016 “Look at me! I’m a Never Trumper!” 2021 “Look at me! I’m not voting. I live in a rural area where everything is perfect!”

      Bitter has chosen his side, I have chosen minge and so have many others.

      This will happen out in the real world and in Congress and in the 2022 primaries.

      As Phil says, pass the popcorn.

      “Look at Me! jason” just lies. I know he is not stupid so it must be that he lies about me. How about this, “Look at Me! jason?”

      1. The election was stolen.
      2. Both impeachments were political bs.
      3. Despite 1 and 2, Biden was sworn in and is going to screw us over.
      4. The only way to prevent 1 and 2 from happening again is to elect people who will eliminate VBM and investigate the fraud that happened in 2020.
      5. The only way to limit the damage in 3 is to elect people in 2022 who will fight.
      6. The only way to bring about 4 and 5 is to vote.

      That is my side. Jason to lie and spin what I just typed to say the exact opposite in 3…2…1…

    640. Bitterlaw says:

      Yes, but their votes count more than the deplorable votes.

      And more than the votes of the quitters.

    641. Bitterlaw says:

      Suburban elitists? I thought only Democrats thrived on dividing people. Maybe jason should see if Occupy Wall Street is still camping out somewhere. They are probably cool with llamas.

    642. jason says:

      Now, you have adopted this smug “I am better than everybody because I won’t vote.”

      BS. I haven’t said other people should not vote. I speak for myself. I have had nothing but encouragement for your plan to run for office. You can’t point to one comment where I said that you shouldn’t run or that I wouldn’t be supportive.

      I would actually prefer to be wrong. I hope the US doesn’t go socialist. I have given my reasons why I think that is inevitable, but if I am wrong, great.

    643. jason says:

      Bitter says this is a lie:

      “Bitter has chosen his side, I have chosen minge and so have many others.”

      Really?

      Trump was a good President. Unfortunately, he is not the President anymore.”

      Sounds a lot like “move on” to me.

    644. jason says:

      Suburban elitists? I thought only Democrats thrived on dividing people.”

      Nah, you are wrong.

      This is from a Republican:

      “The greatest irony is that YOU are the elitist and always have been.”

    645. Phil says:

      Unfortunately, you aren’t wrong, Jason.

      I’m also not suggesting that bitter not vote. As I’ve told him, “fight the good fight” if you think it will make a difference. It won’t, but I say go for it if you are under the illusion that it matters.

      We all voted down here for Cornyn in spite of the fact that he’s made it clear what he thinks of us.

      No more.

      But completely ignores this (which is not a “move on” statement)

      That is not what happens in PA. First, Liberty Mutual would settle at least the indemnity (wage) on a 10+ year old case. I have never heard of them asking for the money back and if they did it would be deemed a gratuitous overpayment which a judge would not award back to the company. If there is demonstrable fraud, it could be referred to Attorney General for a criminal prosecution. A plea deal or a conviction might result in an Order to repay the company BUT if it was already spent, LM is not getting it back.

    667. Bitterlaw says:

      maybe we would let you into radnor

      Zzzzzzzzzz. Buy a house or rent an apartment and you can live here. No different than any other place. Except we have the No. 1 School District in PA.

      Both were quick to defend “you need to feel the pain or your are a racist” Haley, for example

      Where am I wrong?

      Because I suggested you might want to run an unconventional campaign to win?

      As far as I know, saying successful candidates need a “hook” to win uphill races is the only comment I made about your race.

    677. Bitterlaw says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if Bitter and Robbie Goebbels supported the same candidate

      Well, that unfortunate occurrence does happen when there is only a Republican candidate and a Democrat candidate. Maybe they did not cover the concept at Machu Pichu High School. It is called the General Election.

      I have only voted for Republicans since June of 1986 (first election I could vote in when I turned 18). I don’t know who Robbie votes for.

    678. jason says:

      Bernie should not be worried.

      The GOP is making every effort to ensure that won’t happen.

      It’s funny that when you criticize the GOP’s effort to disenfranchise their own voters, Bitter feels offended and personally attacked.

    682. jason says:

      Yeah, look I have a used snowblower and a deplorable friend with a llama is not exactly the hook I was trying to describe.

    683. jason says:

      But I liked the self deprecating idea.

      Maybe something like

      “Most candidates will tell you how wonderful and accomplished and successful and well liked they are, and that is why you vote for them.

      I am not going to do that. I am not going to run as somebody special. I am just a regular guy. I have diabetes. I got laid off during the pandemic. I have endured several personal tragedies. I have a mortgage. I have kids in college.

      I do know this district. I think I can make a difference fighting for the things that will make a difference to me too.”

    684. lisab says:

      is the gop chairman robbie?

      i ask again is this match fixing?

      how are you going to get back in power if your candidate for one of the most powerful positions on earth, from one of the most important states in the country, cannot keep a job as a lawyer in the insurance industry?!

      the reason the democratic party can just blow up countries in the middle-east without asking anybody is because you run candidates with so little self-awareness that they think they are the best person for congress when they are collecting unemployment!

    685. jason says:

      The first line should be “and that is why they think you should vote for them”.

    686. Bitterlaw says:

      It might not be possible to win, Jason. A childless middle aged woman who has never met me said I am a loser who can’t win.

      if he said he was going to run for school board or radnor town council … it would be funny and i’d laugh and not vote for him … but at least it would fit

      town council for a elitist town … insurance lawyer … sure ok … makes sense

      or if he wanted to just waive the gop flag in a non-competitive house district like he did before … ok sure … no issue there

      but he thinks he is the best person in all of pennsylvania to represent one of our states!

      he is not even the best person in his house

      Copy and paste after you add your date of your guess as to Biden;s last day as president.

      David Brooks thought he would avoid re-education camp?

      Nah, they are coming for him too..

      “At some point, we need to have a convo about how, at the end of the day, the GOP’s radicalization problem isn’t sourced at a Nascar race but rather, stems from the constant dehumanization of “the other” coming from the GOP’s conservative intelligentsia like @nytdavidbrooks”

    690. jason says:

      “Cash Cow (wants hay as prize)”

      Would you settle for not being hamburger?

    691. jason says:

      but he thinks he is the best person in all of pennsylvania to represent one of our states!”

      Nah, he thinks he is better than the Dem who is there now.

      I agree with him.

    692. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      This is certainly good news if she follows-through. One footnote to be answered by Bitterlaw–Wasn’t she your college girlfriend?

      well then hell’s bells run someone who has a track record of success!

    694. jason says:

      well then hell’s bells run someone who has a track record of success!”

      Why?

      Biden has arguably had a track record of “success”, right?

    695. Bitterlaw says:

      The last 2 candidates were successful women. They lost. Time to mix it up.

    696. jason says:

      Catholic bishops astounded?

      “Roman Catholic bishops criticized on Friday President Biden’s recent executive order on applying anti-discrimination protections to certain groups, arguing it didn’t properly account for religious liberty and furthered “false theories on human sexuality.”

      Wednesday’s order, they said, “threatens to infringe the rights of people who recognize the truth of sexual difference or who uphold the institution of lifelong marriage between one man and one woman. This may manifest in mandates that, for example, erode health care conscience rights or needed and time-honored sex-specific spaces and activities.”

      Signed by bishops from across the country, the statement represented another sharp disagreement Church leadership had with the second U.S. president to identify as Roman Catholic.”

    697. jason says:

      How is this for a catchy meme?

      “I might be a failure, but I won’t fail you”!

    698. jason says:

      Wasn’t she your college girlfriend?”

      No, but he once saw her on campus.

    699. jason says:

      Usually I don’t support re-threads, most of the time they lose. But Ayotte is a a good candidate.

      so pick a veteran … pick a successful businessman … pick a doctor who works in a free clinic

      pick someone who, oh i don’t know, shows potential, a young mayor, a state rep, a bartender

      there must be someone else left in the republican party in pennsylvania … almost anyone else

      I demand more troops be sent to DC.

    702. lisab says:

      i would say that bitterlaw should listen to the gop chairman

      but then i remembered it is the gop chairman

      so (s)he will probably say,

      “middle-aged unemployed elitist insurance lawyer from radnor … hmmmmm … I LIKE IT … that will appeal to the oil worker of PA!”

      i think biden already defunded them

      I thought maybe he had already sent them to the Middle East.

    706. lisab says:

      it is sad that so many republicans have quit hhr

      that it falls to the socialist to say,

      “is this a joke? are you guys not even trying to win anymore?”

      about bitterlaw’s impending mid-life crisis

    707. Bitterlaw says:

      I went to law school with Kelly Ayotte. I played softball with Kelly Ayotte. I wrote a law journal article with Kelly Ayotte. I danced with Kelly Ayotte. Lisab is no Kelly Ayotte.

      I am glad that lisab is enjoying my unemployment more than I am. At first I thought that she was trying some reverse psychology to motivate me. Then I remembered she’s a bitch.
