DebinGA

Totally agree with Schlichter.

JimNorCal

Huh? I thought Schlicter was advocating for Do Not Care.

henry

The second half of Franken's plan... he's too impo'tent to resign. Just ask him.

The Infamous Ignatz

Jimmyk had an excellent response to Schlichter on the last thread.

My response is if they don't want "weird" candidates like Moore the GOPe should stop pushing useless ones on us like Strange while undercutting people like Mo Brooks.
Like virtually every problem the GOP has it can be traced back to GOPe shenanigans.

henry

Now Leahy can't live without Franken.

Bringing this over since it is a ubiquitous concept these days. responding to iggy's comment.

SMART is also an acronym tied to evidence-based decisionmaking by governments at all levels steering people, the economy, and all the social institutions they can control directly or indirectly.

Governments set goals which are to be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely. The data can show the gap between the goals and what has happened. It's considered to be far more flexible than the old Five Year Plans but it is state-directed nonetheless. It also ties to Pay for Success Public private Partnerships where insiders can benefit from being the provider of declared obligations of the state.

DebinGA

Alabama primary rules are weird - closed for Dems (only registered Dems can vote) but open for Rs (come one, come all chooses the R candidate) A recipe for mischief-making that produced the polarizing Roy Moore.

Captain Hate

I might be the only person who feels this way but, even though I hate Franken and think he's a worthless creep, what he did doesn't even come close to what Slick's done and I'm not ever on the bandwagon that he should resign.

From Miss Marple's willowed link on Fatboy Erickson leaving Fox:

While I would like to think I am useful as a political commentator and contributor for conservatives, I am just not a bandwagon Republican anymore and cannot with a straight face call the President a conservative.

It's probably the multiple chins that prevent "a straight face" because Levin, who knows a bit more about conservatism than this four flusher, has called DJT the most conservative President since Reagan. And to be a "bandwagon Republican" meant pretending GWB and his massive spending were conservative.

Captain Hate

Hell must have Bad Company on an 8 track.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

Erickson conveniently forgets his enthusiastic support of Rick Perry as a candidate back in 2011 when he orchestrated a rather embarassing announcement by Perry through Red State .

Perry is now Secretary of Energy in the Trump administration, so either Perry wasn't as conservative as Erickson thought, or Trump is more conservative. Either way, Erickson was wrong.

Guys like Erickson just will not admit that they didn't like Trump because of his accent and attitude, because he was an outsider and not a familiar face in Beltway circles, and most importantly, he wasn't going to give them or their cronies JOBS.

Appalled

If Sen. Gillebrand is intent on creating a one size fits all punishment for all the consequences of sexual misconduct and the Democrats are willing to sign on to that, then they can sweat the consequences. Since this will likely put an end to her Presidential aspirations (Democrats not being a forgiving tribe), this is likely good. As for Franken -- he's the doofus that agreed to quit, so I don't have much sympathy for him.

It would be nice to have the Republicans on the side of due process -- particularly if the current movement knocks off more members of the Congressional Black Caucus, and increases the tension between the progressives and the blacks.

henry

Franken is a weasel, he never said when he would quit. It was a fake to get clods like Appalled to focus on Moore (who harassed no one).

Davod

.Do you really think Moore would still have lost if the Republican hierarchy had supported him from the moment he won the Primary?

Davod

"...It would be nice to have the Republicans on the side of due process --"

Now that Moore has gone.

Extraneus

I'm with you on Franken, Captain. Maybe his staying could restore some sanity by helping to delineate between boorishness and criminality. (The 85-year-old owner of the Carolina Panthers is forced to sell the team because he had an appreciative eye for the ladies on "jeans day"?)

Plus, Franken's next opponent could easily paint him as a lying hypocrite perv and take him out when he comes up for re-election.

Janet 🚬

Do not nominate weird candidates.

Who gets to define 'weird'?

Here's jimmyk's excellent comment -

Schlichter has a point, but it's a bit hard to generalize between Gillespie and Moore. Gillespie was more like Strange, but he lost (granted, very different electorate).

In any case, maybe the more important lesson, since there's no way to control who gets nominated, and I'm not sure I would want the RNC to have more control, is to STOP UNDERMINING NOMINEES. And stop buying into the leftist/MSM double standard that people with very conservative ideas are "weird," whereas those with far left ideas are well-meaning idealists.

Landsburg, though a NeverTrumper, has some positive thing to say about the tax bill. And I agree with his take overall.

https://www.thebigquestions.com/2017/12/16/the-tax-bill/

James D.

I agree 1,000% with Ig @ 8:17

Moore was a weak candidate. Fine. But the reality is, as Ig, says, it was GOPe meddling (and, no doubt, Dem meddling) that helped him win the primary.

Us conservatives who need to not nominate "weird" candidates have no control over the actions of the national GOP establishment. We have no control over the behavior of Dems. We have no control over election laws that were passed years ago. And we have no control over local voters, who all have their own reasons for their votes.

So I think, in this particular case, Schlichter is completely, 100% off base.

Janet 🚬

I'm with you on Franken, Captain.

Me too.

Momto2

The worst news in that E. Erickson article is that he will now be on the radio *more* (implied)! Yuck! I already turn it off or switch stations if I hear his voice doing a commercial!

Captain Hate

Miss Marple, I just wish the NeverTrumps would use the example of hrtshpdbox, who fought the good fight, and then some, for Jeb and, when that didn't work out so well, got on, perhaps reluctantly at first, the DJT bandwagon and has been enjoying it ever since. I guess that's what Erickson calls being a "bandwagon Republican" and it has a large amount of accuracy in its description. It's also what we were demanded to do behind squishes like Mutt Rombley and look what that got us.

I know it must hurt to be proven wrong when your career is based on having people believe you're really really smart in a field, but continuing to double down isn't helpful to his future whether he knows it or not. And placing your hopes in the likes of weirdos like Egg McMuffin is just ignorant.

Momto2

Who gets to define 'weird'?

That's a great question, Janet!

Captain Hate

.Do you really think Moore would still have lost if the Republican hierarchy had supported him from the moment he won the Primary?

We have no way of knowing if it's true or not, but if you believe it's true, why have a party do anything in a campaign since it's impact is minimal at best.

DebinGA

"Moore took nearly 55 percent of the vote, rolling over Strange, who pulled in about 45 percent, according to results from Alabama’s Secretary of State" (WaPo) ... That's what allowing Dems to vote in an R primary gets you.
As for the meaning of "weird", I don't think Judge Moore defying the law re same sex marriage and an order to remove the huge monument to the 10 Commandments he'd installed in the courthouse rotunda in the dead of night is best described as "weird". It's "alarming" imo.

The Infamous Ignatz

Do any JOM attorneys have an opinion on the Trump transition vs GSA privilege kerfuffle?

jimmyk

IANAL, Ig, but from what I've read, one would need to look carefully at the contract between GSA and the transition team, and that a judge will probably have to decide. But I think the Trump team will have a good case that the e-mails were private and a warrant should have been necessary to snatch them.

Janet 🚬

Dems were defying the law on same sex marriage before the courts changed the definition of marriage.

And defying our immigration laws is cool for Democrats.
No 'weird' label for Dems.

Robin....10 Square....

Look, I’d be happy as a clam if Moore had won, but my god, the man said some stupid things and allowed his wife to open her mouth and say some more stupid things. I’m tired of defending loser (weird) candidates based on party. If I lived in Alabama, I would have held my nose and voted for him, but I wouldn’t have spent much time drumming up support.

Grassroots support is how candidates win. Sure, you can go out and pull the lever for your party, but are you going to beg your friends on social media to get out and vote? Are you going to volunteer a day to drive people to the polls?

I live in a closed primary state, which is the ONLY reason I am affiliated with a party. Funny how Democrat run states don’t have open primaries for fiddling with primaries. The RNC should be encouraging all states to close their primaries to party only.

Another Bob

Jimmy, I'm also fairly sure that nobody waived attorney-client privilege to use the .gov system.

Mueller seems to be implying that they had warrants, or the permission of the "account owners". Might they be assuming that some GSA holdover wad the "owner" of all the accounts?

Robin....10 Square....

Net Neutrality is one of those issues I’ve had a hard time wrapping my head around, especially given which corporations support it and which don’t. This article makes the most sense to me because of the zero rating issue, which it explains quite well:

“In the United States, the FCC’s 2015 Open Internet rules, unlike the older 2010 Internet Order, did not explicitly ban zero-rating schemes or data caps, choosing to instead examine practices on a case-by-case basis. Zero-rating practices were nonetheless a hot topic in the Open Internet Proceeding. Because of its potential to prioritize certain types of traffic (thereby violating net-neutrality principles) and to favor incumbents who could pay for their services to be zero-rated, parties that supported a ban on paid and unpaid forms of zero-rating included civil rights organizations, the startup community, and public interest groups. Nick Grossman of Union Square Ventures filed a letter of ex parte with the FCC warning that even a zero-rating scheme that did not require a fee could still raise the costs of innovation, distort competitive markets, and encourage carriers to choose scarcity by reducing their data caps.”

AB, I think the kind of 'privilege' being asserted is executive privilege, not lawyer-client. And while Trump was not President, apparently there is some precedent for the P-E to have EP.

Iggy, I think the evidence was illegally obtained and under the fruit of the poisonous tree potentially taints every SC prosecution. GSA was the holder, not the owner, of the material .The bank holds your records and cannot disclose them to others without a subpoena and notice to you. In that sense GSA was the holder, not the owner. But my spidey sense says Trump knew the stunt they had pulled just as he knew about the misuse of FISA court and materials.

 narcisoyea

Shorthand, but you voted for him or did you vote nick Satan?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I see I am in the minority here, but that's ok. I found myself in the same position as President Trump. He supported Strange because he was the incumbent and had voted with him on every bill. When Strange lost, he supported the nominee. He even got the RNC to throw their support back into the mix, but it was too late to help.

What Moore did NOT do is make a credible case for himself, didn't have good spokespeople, and generally ran a crummy campaign. I think Trump had sympathy for him because he had also been the target of Gloria Allred's smear machine.

Moore was vulnerable to bogus charges like Allred made because he had set himself up as an arbiter of all that is morally correct. Guys who do that are vulnerable to people looking for an Elmer Gantry example, even though in most cases that's nothing but something in Hollywood's imagination.

The GOPe are poor strategists who don't understand the ruthlessness of democrats nor the will of their voters. In this case, McConnell thought that Strange would win the original election, and never saw that Moore would come in second instead of third. Once the run-off was bound to happen, instead of preparing Moore and giving him some counseling and extra staff who knew how to fight, they all ran away.

A variation of this tactic will be used whenever the dems think they can get away with it. If it's not sex, it will be drugs. Imagine the impact of an anti-drug candidate being accused of using cocaine and selling it 30 years ago. Imagine if physician candidates are accused of doing abortions after hours. Ex-military candidates will be accused of war crimes.

My position on Moore was this: I thought him a poor candidate and I was unenthusiastic about him. Once he got the nomination, I kept my opinions pretty much to myself as I didn't want to undermine him (the problem jimmyk so aptly alluded to).

Going forward, I suggest all candidates be vetted AND that the GOP realize that these last-minute attacks that I described are going to happen for almost all candidates.

Janet 🚬

I’m tired of defending loser (weird) candidates based on party.

Well I'm tired of defending Dem-lite candidates.
If I am willing to help & vote for "Romneycare" Romney....then I at least expect the Republican party to support candidates that are more socially conservative.

I voted for Corey Stewart in the Rep. Virginia primary (a loud, 2nd amendment supporting, stop illegal immigration guy)...but establishment Gillespie won.

I didn't tear down Gillespie.

Robin....10 Square....

One last thing and then I’ll shut up about it. The word is that Moore plans to run again in 2020. It would be much better for the party if he didn’t, and hopefully someone he respects will lay that out for him. Sometimes pride and vanity gets in the way of common sense. Moore running again would be due to the former and in no way improve Republicans’ chances for gaining that seat back.

I live among Democrats. I know ALL ABOUT their weird and their foibles.

 narcisoyea

You never can tell, the fellow who came in 3rd in the gubernatorial primary, Bentley a for minister turned up a bad apple, same for promise keeper ensign, who paid off his mistress's whole family, but he was in charge of finances for the senate campaign.

Captain Hate

I don't have any problem with the reason Moore lost was he wasn't a very good candidate for subjective reasons. Some people are just easier to vote for than others; Reagan and Goldwater, for example. In all my railing about the GOPe, I'm not excusing Moore for not running a better campaign in terms of energizing his supporters.

Robin....10 Square....

The point of Schlictor’s essay was that we should try harder not to nominate lousy candidates. Moore was a lousy candidate. I kept my opinion to myself because it wasn’t my vote, but my goodness, we would be very foolish to not see the weakness of the candidate when we know we are fighting on TWO FRONTS - against Democrats at the face and the flanking GOPe to our left.

The New York Federal Reserve on Friday raised its estimate of U.S. gross domestic product growth for the fourth quarter of 2017 closer to 4 percent, based on revisions of prior data that suggested stronger economic activities.

The regional central bank's "Nowcast" model calculated the economy was expanding at an annualized pace of 3.98 percent in the fourth quarter, quicker than the 3.92 percent rate calculated a week ago.

... clearly, Barack Obama can take some credit for this. His efforts to hold-back the economy helped to set the launching pad for Trump MAGA.

I point out the alternative, the fellow who was beaten by Bentley was hammered for his creationist views, and yet has been a congressman since 2013, he may run for that seat.

Robin....10 Square....

JimmyK, let’s hope they do.

The Infamous Ignatz

--The point of Schlictor’s essay was that we should try harder not to nominate lousy candidates.--

The GOPe 'trying harder' is how we ended up with Moore.
How about the party leadership let the voters lead them for a change instead of trying to shove turds down our throats?
Moreover, how do you know who is a lousy candidate until they run a campaign? Moore seemed to be a good enough candidate to beat Strange and Brooks.
I understand Schichter's point and agree with it in principle, but am hard pressed to see how it can be practically applied.
"Weird" candidates will always occur. Question is what do you do with them; abandon them and insure a prog victory or work to get them elected?

The Infamous Ignatz

I don't like open primaries either, but is there actual substantive evidence Dems were responsible for Moore's primary win?

Oh, don’t assume that I support the GOPe position in abandoning a nominee once the primaries are over. THAT was appalling. I just want voters recognizing that the is a two front war and there is a price to be paid for flipping off the establishment with a vocal opponent. Honey and bees....we can do that too.

DebinGA,

This was the first year in Alabama that voters who voted in the Democrat primary were not allowed to vote in the Republican runoff. That didn't stop Democrats from voting in the runoff, only those who voted in the Democrat primary. I know some who held off voting in the Democrat primary just so they could help nominate Roy Moore.

Democrats put our recently ousted Governor in office by voting for him in the Republican runoff instead of the better candidate, who was strongly opposed by the teachers union. The Democrat candidate was the former head of the Alabama Education Association.
