Lower taxes. About time.

daddy

Even Bernie Sanders applauding Trump saying we have to keep our companies from leaving America. Bernie has a John Boehner tan.

Pagar, a bacon ham and Pork chop supporter

While hearing the speech by President Trump, and watching the opposition in that chamber, you might want to keep this story in the back of you mind:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-02-28/newly-declassified-documents-show-senior-cia-agent-and-deputy-director-directorate-i

"Newly-Declassified Documents Show that CIA Worked Closely with Owners and Journalists with Many of the Largest Media Outlets"

Another Bob

He many times has he used the word "I"?

Another Bob

He > how

henry

Legal immigration reform. To merit based?

henry

McTurtle looks in shock at the idea of merit based immigration.

henry

Not to be a buzzkill, but this infrastructure program sounds like Japan of the past 30 years.

daddy

Wow. Merit based immigration based on Immigrants being able to support themselves at their own expense. He has so much material to work with to explain how lousy we have been doing things for decades that its difficult for his enemies to find fault and boo him. The "failing New York Times" I am sure will find a way tho:)

Justice Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg looks lovely in that black sparkling outfit. What? That was Melania ? My bad. I always get those 2 kids confused

daddy

'Mandating every American to have to buy Healthcare was never the right solution for our country.'

Marlene

Repeal and Replace got some boos from Dems. The Dems live in an alternate universe.

PD

'Mandating every American to have to buy Healthcare was never the right solution for our country.'

Slap in the face to John Roberts.

daddy

We all know that "If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor " was a promise that was broken.

Marlene

Ha! He pointed at Dems and said,Obamacare is imploding.

Threadkiller

I agree, PD.

daddy

"It must be the Plan they want, not the plan forced on them by the Government."

narciso

Earth 38, to be exact, marlene.

PD

"promise that was broken" sounds more diplomatic than "brazen lie."

Who says The Donald can't do nuance? :-)

Dave (in MA)

Bipartisan clapping when handouts get mentioned.

henry

My wallet got emptied in the free stuff bit.

lyle

Mine, too, henry.

Threadkiller

The tax credits for healthcare, henry?

Davod

CIA revelations - I stopped reading at this - John Pilger is a highly-regarded journalist! The commentary reads like a hit list.

lyle

But otherwise he's hit the right notes. Too bad no dems/neverTrumpers aren't watching.

henry

TK, paid family leave... child care benefits. That ain't govt cash, that is out of my business budget.

Threadkiller

What was the applause line prior to the law enforcement applause line?

narciso

Pilger aussie version of sy harsh, still angry over pine gap and the removal of whitlam.

daddy

Even the Dem's have to stand. Trump is a master showman who knows how to tug the heartstrings to make a point, but he exudes sincerity, not insincerity, credibility, not fantasy. He makes you believe that he believes it. Great job Mr President.

BeenThereDoneThat

The Democrat party is dying on the burning pyre of Obama Care, corrupt inner cities and illegal immigrant invasion. And tonight POTUS is offering them a life preserver in the form of "...working TOGETHER to benefit the American people and the country".

Think they'll oblige the country? Or the people?

jimmyk

Just remember, this could have been Madame Pantsuit up there.

Threadkiller

What if you were offer an offsetting tax credit?

Beasts of England

I think about that each day, jimmyk.

PD

Marc Lamont Hill probably thinks those exceptional blacks sitting with Melania are mediocre negroes.

henry

TK, when you cut the profit, there is no tax to credit.

daddy

Just remember, this could have been Madame Pantsuit up there.

I don't even want to think of the vapid tripe she'd be pouring down our throats.

Threadkiller

An offset to the tax rate then?

Marlene

Wow,that was an awesome tribute.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

For a comedic break, right click;

PD

I want the cameras on the grouchy Dems sitting and not clapping over this serviceman's sacrifice.

jimmyk

I think this speech will win over a lot of people who are open-minded but have only heard MSM propaganda. He's delivering it well, and sincerely. Not everything is what I'd like, but I'll take the package.

daddy

Great shot of Ivanka tearing up while consoling the tearful mom of the slain Seal. Ivanka's goodness and decency is so evident. Yet the Left assaults her on airplanes and attempts to cripple her business.

Boy, Trump is killing this.

Not a single commercial break on Al Jazira, nor a single interrupting comment from any of their reporters.

henry

TK, it means lower pay or fewer employees. Tax gobbledygook doesn't make up for it.

PD

Gonna be hard for the MFM to spin this as "Trump ranting and raving," not that they won't try.

Janet 🚬

This is fantastic. God bless President Trump.

daddy

"I think this speech will win over a lot of people who are open-minded but have only heard MSM propaganda. He's delivering it well, and sincerely."

I agree JimmyK. The news media better watch out about how much harshness and pettiness they choose to use in criticizing this speech. We've seen a great speech tonight and the American Public knows it.

daddy

Cadaver Nancy shakes her head in befuddlement.

Dave (in MA)

Trivial fights, Heh

Marlene

Trivial fights (points at Dems).

Threadkiller

I guess I should wait to see his written plan, henry.

Marlene

That was great!

henry

Nice get off your butts speech. Well done.

Dave (in MA)

All those white suited ladies must have had to go feed parking meters or something.

daddy

The Al Jazira Talking Head is unable to criticize the speech at all. Says it was said very Presidentially and for once Donald Trump did not sound angry. Sounds to me like the guy was very impressed.

Momto2

They are saying, "A very different Donald Trump!" I don't think so - it was the things he's been saying over and over again. They have not been listening!

PD

Bret Baier: "For the ages."

lyle

I said the the same thing to Mrs lyle, jimmyk, about the alternative outcome last November.

::shudder::

lyle

Lol, Dave!

Janet 🚬

They are saying, "A very different Donald Trump!" I don't think so - it was the things he's been saying over and over again. They have not been listening!

Exactly, Momto2!

Rick Perry audibly yelled: "Hell yea!" In the Gallery when Trump said he was elected president to serve Americans, not rest of world.

narciso

This is what all the fake news has prevented us from confronting, certainly they cared not to do in the Obama hagiographic press.

PD

The FOX folks are falling all over themselves trying to outdo each other in their praise. This includes Hume, Wallace, Perino so far.

Still waiting to hear from Juan, though. Then we'll get the real truth.

Threadkiller

The rebuttal is apparently some clown from Kentucky.


It is no small wonder that Trump quoted the Governor of Kentucky with regard to the "collapsing Obamacare."

Well played.

henry

Is Juan in a white dress?

Threadkiller

...some clown Governor...

PD

Love that NYT commercial, huh?

Yeah, the Times is going to tell us what The Truth is.

daddy

Amazingly even Ed Schultz on Russia Today is saying he did very well. His current guest says the speech was an A plus. Both agree it was almost bullet points in covering everything, really hitting points on all points. Never got unfocused or off message and really showed Presidential discipline. I guess wonders never cease!

Clarice Feldman

Saw it on C-Span--thought it hit every right note. Pelosi looked like she was going to have a stroke.

Lyle, sorry about your uncle.

PD

This Dem "response" has the disadvantage of not knowing what Trump was going to say, and now it's reduced to railing against stuff Trump didn't say.

Threadkiller

Trump:

Governor Matt Bevin of Kentucky just said Obamacare is failing in his state. The state of Kentucky, and it is unsustainable and collapsing.

DrJ

Saw it on C-Span

I did too -- all the rest wanted to tell me what to think (or *feel*). Simply, I wanted to hear the words without editorial content.

I'll agree with jimmyk -- Not everything is what I'd like, but I'll take the package.

cheerleader

but Henry, maybe you'll get business tax credits that will pay for the paid maternity leaves? In Canada, it doesn't have to be the mother who takes the leave, it can be the father.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

I didn't watch it and so will reserve judgment until I hear from Jonah G, John P, Bill K, Kevin W and Egg M.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I had to go find the speech on our miracle cable (we cancelled and are not buiilled but still have it).

Internet sites were hard to get access to here.

Saw the last 2/3 of the speech, which was excellent. Very pleased to see he used his conversational voice.

Great speech, very inspiring!

Janet 🚬

Dems picked an old white guy to give the response? A former governor? How odd.

I tried to listen but it was too boring.

PD

Hard to believe this Dem response brings up "coal miners in Kentucky," given that Democrats, and Hillary in particular, want them out of a job.

PD

Beshear ends his response by quoting Lady Gaga.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Quote me the article, section and clause that gives the Feds power to implement maternity leave cheerleader and I'll go get my pom poms.

Dave (in MA)

Old guy in a diner waiting for his pie.

narciso

They are not terribly self aware, pd, and/or they expect the gullible sheeple to buy it.

Dave (in MA)

LOL PD

cheerleader

henry, nevermind, I see the question was asked and answered already

GUS

Were the ladies in the white "cloaks" from the KKK??? Talk about WHITE PRIVILEGE.

Stephanie despicable me

Love how the democrats throw up another 70 something year old socialist fart instead of allowing their up and coming younguns to provide the response... it's almost like they can't let go of the reins or something.

Plus they don't have a bench.

This generation of dems is going to go darkly into that night requiring someone to pry the levers from their cold dead hands. It's worse than any English court from the 1800s and before.

No wonder they aren't into tech colleges where you are mentored to take over from the experienced in due time. For them, that young whippersnapper might stab em in the back, so for G-ds sake don't teach them anything. Well, when you believe in eugenics, youth must be kept down to preserve your own rung of the ladder. The young might just take your words to heart.

Porchlight

My man Donald J. Trump.

Is Providence smiling on us or what?

PD

Juan says the tribute to the fallen SEAL was good, but let's not kid ourselves, the mission in Yemen was controversial and "many people have reported" that we obtained no actionable intelligence.

Except that Mattis says the opposite.

Let's see, who should we believe? Mattis, who is in a position to know, or Juan's unnamed sources?

cheerleader

daddy, :Not a single commercial break on Al Jazira, nor a single interrupting comment from any of their reporters."

that's what it was like on cspan, as well, just the way I like it. I hate listening to the blowhards overtalking.

Dave (in MA)

Krauthammer says that if he gave this kind of speech on 1/20 it could have "vastly reduced the hysteria".

And ruin all our fun?

GUS

Has Bill Kristol blown his brains out yet?

Texas Liberty Gal

Can't wait to watch when I get home!!

Found out why the D women congress critters were wearing white:

Pelosi..
Keep your eye out tonight as Democratic #WomenWearWhite in support of women’s rights during the #JointSession!

Jack Posobiec‏
@JackPosobiec

Jack Posobiec Retweeted Nancy Pelosi
The last time so many Democrats wore white they founded the KKK

Pelosi appeared to not have a clue..

GUS

Texas, the President did shout out to Louie Gohmert that the STARS had scored in the 3rd period. That got a standing ovation.

Porchlight

Krauthammer says that if he gave this kind of speech on 1/20 it could have "vastly reduced the hysteria".

Oh sure. Because the hysteria was so justified.

Krauthammer knows as well as we do that if Trump had done that he'd have been attacked for being "too political" - by the Krauthammers as well as the left.

Guess what, media? He's smarter than you.

PD

Harf fans, take note, she's on FOX right now.

PD

There are Harf fans here, right?

GUS

Yes Glasater!!! My 10:35. Wearing white for womens rights. Why not TRANNIES rights??

Bela1

Too funny listening to responses.
Chucky says the ex-gov's retort was a much better speech than President Trump's speech.

The Dems are imploding people.

I thank God every day that Donald J. Trump is the POTUS!!!

PD

GUS, inclusiveness is hard.

Dave (in MA)

How do they know he was looking at the speech in the limo? He could have been looking at a menu.
