Telling it like it is. said...

Only an irrational and or blind partisan could Not see the Racism in President Obama's remarks. A speech Full of Slanted opinions and and, most importantly, a speech full of Bull-Shit.

Dave Miller said...

While we can bemoan the facts of Trump and his VP, I still think he poses a great chance to win the Presidency...

If he goes with Newt, and I think he will, they will be an even bigger threat.

Remember, a GOP candidate will only need to flip two states if he keeps the secure states. Those two states are either Florida, Ohio or Pennsylvania...

Currently Trump is leading in two of those battleground states. And Newt will only make him stronger there. They speak the language of people left behind by this recovery...

Bluebull said...

And not a single one of them is anything more than warmed over garbage that the right has been spewing for decades. I can't wait to vote straight Democratic in November!!! It won't shut up the mutts on the right for long, but even a small break from their incessant whining and bitching about everything would be a welcome change.

Dear Telling...,

You do realize you and your fellow wingnuts are distinctly in the minority in that idiotic opinion. You are, of course, entitled to hold such a crazy fringe reaction to one of President Obama's best speeches, and we who live in real world are entitled to tell you to go to hell. And please take your stomach-turning hatred with you.

Thank you. And have a nice day.

Rational Nation USA said...

You Forgot Pence.

Dear Telling, you're one of the flying sock puppets from the Stinke Shack right?

"If he goes with Newt, and I think he will, they will be an even bigger threat."

Oh I hope he goes with Newt.

They'll then be the leaders of "The Six Wives Club."

Both Trump and Gingrich will have to woo those "family values" folks into accepting them as "one of them." Aren't those devout "Christians" always hollering about what a terrible Christian One-Wife-and-Faithful-Husband Obama is? Let's see how they twist themselves into hypocritical pretzels, explaining to each other what trustworthy men Trump and Gingrich are now, and they should all forget and forgive their past rotten behavior toward their several spouses. They do believe in redemption and all that fine Christian love -- but only for men and women with an "R" after their names. Just remember how they deal with Bill Clinton and his transgressions against women. No forgiveness or redemption for him!

And remember, at one point in the 2008 election cycle, John McCain and Sarah Palin were ahead of Obama/Biden, and many people were sure they'd win. And in 2012, that feeling was even stronger.

I'd ask the people who are "hurting" need to ask themselves what exactly did billionaire Trump ever do to help the little people and the same goes for Gingrich (a professional pol if there ever was one).

The real campaign gets going after the conventions. And don't forget that the Clintons know a thing or two on how to deal with their opponents.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Bluebull, we'll know soon enough who Trump's running mate is, and then the convention and the real campaign. No matter who Trump chooses, Trump will still be the head of the ticket and vying for the White House, and no one in their right mind would want that loud, nasty thin-skinned fraud representing our country.

Dave Miller said...

Telling... it's obvious you did not like President Obama's speech...

President GW Bush had this memorable quote during his speech...

"Too often we judge other groups [and by implication, individuals] by their worst examples”

What do you think of those words? Was he right, accurate, or wrong? Is this something we should strive for?

Kevin Robbins said...

Michael Flynn's biggest weakness for me is putting his name on a Michael Ledeen book.

I was going to say Newt might get to ride on Air Force One if picked, but I'm not as concerned about that as Dave Miller. Josh Marshall told me not to worry about those Q polls, so I won't.

Michael K. said...

Re: Justice Ginsburg, upsetting people by taking a stance against Donald Trump
People, including all those media enablers, are still in denial about the fact--fact, I say--that Trump is a disgrace to the human race, an outlier, a clear and present danger to this country, and to the world. The choice between Trump and Clinton does not reflect the usual sort of options. She has not only the right but the obligation to call Trump by name. If she stands out for doing so, it is not on her. It's on the rest of us. He has no business, none at all, on the national political stage.

Anonymous said...

Soooo Michael K., should we out you down as undecided on voting for DJT?

Rational Nation USA said...

Oops. Guess I missed Pence.

BB-Idaho said...

I'm guessing that playing second fiddle to the Donald brings a strong chance of being the first VP either fired or sued by the CIC...

Rational Nation USA said...

Personally BB Idaho, it is impossible for me to grasp why anyone would even consider accepting the nod (request) to be Trump's VP.

Ducky's here said...

I think it's Pence if he wants it. A real trog but sane on the immediate surface.

Newt is more likely angling to be Trump's attack dog chief of staff.

Maybe the most critical point in the nation's history that I can remember.

Carol said...

I know just how you feel David. I had the same experience a few years ago when a bunch of red neck goobers showed up at my Congessman's Town Hall meeting to protest Obamacare! Damn morons, exercising their First Amendment Rights!!! Oops,parallel here I think...could it be that BLM is doing the same thing but without costumes?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Carol is a stupid troll who's probably an escapee from the Sh*t P*t.

That's the last time it gets published here.
