“I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

Well, if we didn't stick all the bloviating morons inside the beltway they would live next door. (Yes that includes you Turtle, and you Bonerhead, along with the media and lobbyists of your cocktail circuit). Since SMOD is ignoring us, we are contemplating sending an anti-spin bloviating moron in hopes of an annilhation event on contact.

He cited job creation, the rising stock market and millions of Americans who now have health insurance were forced out of their old policies they generally liked and legally coerced into buying worse ones that cost three times as much as examples of a successful presidential run.

On the pollution spill in the Colorado Rover by the EPA, Brett plays video of the EPA's Gina McCarthy getting hammered for revisionism during testimony by Chariman Josh Chaffetz at todays EPA Hearings:

McCarthy: Sir, I have indicated that our notifications could have been better, but that the uhhh, the Navajo was given...

Chaffetz: No you didn't. In your testimony you said that you were working closely with them. You didn't say you screwed up on the communication. Why would it take two days?

McCarthy: I did say that we did take a day Sir. I regret that.

etc.

He's gotta know it, too.

Yeah, these are extremely hollow accomplishments, only solid through delusional glasses.

And it's the best he's got. Damning himself with faint and phony praise.

"what is the union membership percent?"

... and millions of Americans who now have health insurance were forced out of their old policies they generally liked and legally coerced into buying worse ones that cost three times as much...

Just as an aside, it is amazing how much time was taken up at our Union Meeting yesterday, discussing the HealthCare revisions in our Tentative New Contract that the company and the Union Negotiating Committee have had to deal with with as a result of mandates in the ObamaCare regulations. The meeting was supposed to be for 2 hours 30 minutes. There are 28 sections in the new Contract, only a dozen or so of which had to have any changes from the previous contract, and the explanation/discussion simply of the HealthCare Section took almost 45 minutes, and had a dedicated HealthCare guy to deal with the issue, plus 2 lawyers sitting by and kibitzing in different points of explanation when needed.

It was all over my head, and is going to take me hours of homework and watching videos to figure out which of the 3 major Plans proposed that I should opt for, should this Contract be agreed upon.

Jane,

I am still angry about Pappa Bush not picking Jeanne Kirkpatrick as his VP running mate, back when he choose dan Quayle. She was terrific, the Election of Reagan's 3rd term was as close to a done deal as possible, and it would have gotten that stupid "Republicans would never vote for a woman, or a black man" monkey off our back once an for all.

What an opportunity squandered.

I just don't get that kind of thinking.

Back from the auction.

Despite Deb and Barbara's doubts, the old guy Pete who sits next to me really liked Fiorina and asked me what I thought.

I said "She reminds me of Margaret Thatcher." He said, "Wow! That's what I think, too!"

My sisters (who were interested in Trump) really have gotten interested in her. They hadn't seen much of her (since both of them don't have cable) but I gave them her name and they looked her up on YouTube.

And on the way home, Mark Levin said she was another GOPe person and sort of dismissed her. I don't believe it. The GOPe wouldn't back someone who was so fierce about abortion and Planned Parenthood.

Miss M,

The few bits I heard of Levin in today's first hour sure sounded to me like he was ignoring the reality of Carly's outstanding performance yesterday, and at the same time was disingenuous in his praising of some of Trump's rather boneheaded comments last night (ie.-vaccinations.)

I suppose we are all subject to it, me especially, but its not good when get so wedded to a candidate (even when we don't think we're getting wedded to that candidate) that we overlook or ignore their real faults and invent faults in their opponents that don't exist.

I hate to see Levin doing that, but in the little I heard of him today it seemed to me like that was what he was doing.

narciso

Meaning the campaign.

Jane on Ipad

Lol SBW. Me neither. I think it was more out of touchness than prejudice. I just found it shocking. Earlier she asked what I thought of the debate because I "know that stuff".

I was watching the Dr who marathon, ann, they have become so transparent. Maybe in a few says they will get to real news.

Miss Marple

daddy,

Agree with you about getting wedded to a candidate, especially too early.

It is why I try to concentrate on defeating democrats rather than dwelling on someone winning.

My personal decision is that I will vote for whoever gets the nomination: Trump, Christie, Fiorina, Huckabee, whatever.

I like some more than others, but my bottom line is that we have to get these people currently in power out of government.

So whoever gets the nomination, I may privately cringe, but in public they will be the neatest thing since sliced bread.

That is why I try to avoid working up a hate on any of the candidates. And it is why I am upset about the destructive attacks on Trump followers. We will need them come the general election.

peter

Love Mark Levin but he was off base in his opening monologue today about Carly and Donald. Levin also has a habit of using a word that doesn't exist: assimilization.

But other than that I do think he is a pretty smart guy.

Ann

Mark Levin on Carly:

4. Going in, I believe the establishment media were poised to declare Carly Fiorina a victor over Trump and most of the field as she has become one of the establishment favorites. The indications were everywhere. In fact, most of the same voices and writers who opposed Trump and before him Cruz are singing her praises today. They are no longer concerned about lack of governing background of an outsider or flip-flopping, etc. I remember in the 2010 GOP Senate primary race in California she staked out the moderate Republican position against State Representative Chuck DeVore. She didn't sound like a traditional, Reagan conservative back then. And her response to the birthright citizenship questions were wrong and jumbled. In fact, Trump has a superior understanding of the issue. Rand Paul reluctantly had to agreed. And in that Senate campaign, Fiorina mocked Barbara Boxer's looks (understandable), a fact ignored by Tapperl ast night. Why? The audio is public. Finally, her record as a corporate CEO is mixed. But do not expect it to be scrutinized by her cheerleaders in and out of the media. But the Democrats won't ignore it. Let me be clear: I have nothing against Fiorina, but there's reason to be at least a little skeptical.

I am old enough to remember when Colin Powell was still an actual Republican -- and led all those test polls for the Republican nomination. I'm thinking that was in 1999, or thereabouts.

Here in Washington state, women have done very well in the Republican party.

Secretary of state: Kim Wyman (the only statewide elected Republican on the West Coast)

Washington 5th: Cathy McMorris Rodgers

Washington 3rd: Jaime Herrera Beutler

(McMorris Rodgers is the best in the delegation, in my opinion.

Both have born children while serving in Congress, which impresses this guy -- a lot. Both, I suspect, have very supportive husbands. Rodgers husband is a retired Navy guy, by the way.)

party chair: Susan Hutchison (It's jard to tell from a distance, but I think she's been better than her two predecessors.

Nothing new about this, either. Many of us still miss Jennifer Dunn, who passed away in 2005. (She had been party chair -- and served six terms in Congress.)

Despite all that the Democrats still use the old "war on women" bit in elections here -- and it seems to have some effect.
