We were not worthy; so we replaced him with a rascal
Is the worm turning?
• Talks with North Korea are back on.
• The job market is the best in 18 years. Wages are up.
• Even some Democratic strategists think Republicans could actually pick up seats in the U.S. Senate.
• Trump’s approval numbers are the highest in over a year.
• 59% of Americans say special prosecutor Robert Mueller has uncovered no crime — and that’s an MSNBC poll, no less.
• NFL fans overwhelmingly support league’s national anthem policy.
Now a liberal New York Times columnist has committed the apostasy of dissing The One.
One might think, 16 months in to Trump’s armed occupation, that our acquaintances would be singing that Mary Hopkin song from 50 years ago: “Those were the days my friends, we thought they’d never end.”
But here is the N.Y. Times queen of smirk, Maureen Dowd, proclaiming that Barack Obama was “Just too good for us.”
Isn’t that what the Squire has been saying Lo these many years? That America was tired of this President waving his bony finger at us, warning Americans to keep their Klan robes in the closet every time a perp resisted arrest and his homies burned down their neighborhoods — but not before liberating the Stoli. Here is Ms. Dowd:
As president, Obama always found us wanting. We were constantly disappointing him. He would tell us the right thing to do and then sigh and purse his lips when his instructions were not followed.
He’s saying that, sadly, we were not enlightened enough for the momentous changes wrought by the smartest people in the world — or even evolved enough for the first African-American president. …
We just weren’t ready for his amazing awesomeness. …
Tweaking Mizz Dowd’s pique is how Obama, Lynch et al greased the runway for Hillary Clinton by sidelining Joe Biden, sandbagging Bernie Sanders, and “pre-emptively exonerating Hillary Clinton on the email issue, infuriating federal agents who were still investigating the case.”
Dowd quotes Obama aide Ben Rhodes: “… We’d run against Hillary eight years ago (2008) with the same message Trump had used: She’s part of a corrupt establishment that can’t be trusted to change.” Roger that, Mr. Rhodes.
This, that and the other thing
Seriously, Wisconsin Democrats? Helen Kelda Roy is your favorite to challenge Scott Walker? How many Republicans will vote in the Democrat(ic) primary this August to cause a little mischief? (Discuss amongst yourselves.)
Dems stay classy. One Wisconsin Now, the dirty tricks arm of the WI Democrat(ic) Party operated by One Scot Ross, handed out these condoms at this weekend’s state Dem convo. Struggling young writer Christian Schneider tells why Democrats are desperate for Foxconn to fail. (Hint: has something to do with Scott Walker.)
“Democrats pan the GOP’s tax reform as a windfall for the wealthy, so linger on the irony: States run by progressives have spent months concocting plans to preserve a tax preference for the rich known as the state-and-local tax deduction. But now the Trump Administration appears to be putting the kibosh on the strategy sessions in the likes of California and New York.” — Wall Street Journal.
The Senate voted unanimously last August for Ron Johnson’s “Right to Try” bill for desperate patients facing life-threatening illness, allowing them to use pre-FDA approved treatments. So how do Democrats in the House of Reps justify their unanimous opposition (except for Ron Kind of La Crosse) this week?

Canada is sticking it to trump right now. Listen to hog farmers, the people who run the Toro plant in Wis, bourbon makers in Kentucky, on and on. He wanted a trade war and he got it. It won’t be easy.

You morally and ethically bankrupt idiotic partisan trolls will bash Trump for anything. Such blind partisan tunnel vision and whitewashing of historical facts cannot go unpunished.
Too bad you, and other ignorant anti-Trump Progressives, ignore the fact that the previous trade deals were what built the framework for the economic recession in the early 2000’s and cost the USA economy hundreds of thousands of jobs and nearly put us into a literal depression.
This is one of Trumps policy items that I am in complete agreement with. Trump is absolutely correct to adjust these trade deals and negotiate deals that are in favor of boosting the USA economy instead of literally being against the USA economy, which is exactly what the previous trade deals were doing. The previous trade deals made by previous Presidents figuratively threw their own workers under the damn bus and you blithering idiots are so consumed with your blind hate for all things Trump that you’ll bash him for anything, even when it’s good for the USA economy.
Forget the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, DAMN that 22nd Amendment!
Why don’t we see Democrats falling all over themselves trying to get the 22nd Amendment repealed when a Republican is in office?
Todays headline: Obama was just to good for us!
Not if you live in south side Chicago. The dude had eight years, watched, and did nothing as the carnage mounted. Did he even talk about it in any meaningful way? Didn’t lift a finger.
I would like to see -The Orange Master- take this on. He would blow things up BIGLY!
Carnage? You bet there was/is. And every time something was proposed to stop it the gop blocked it. The NRA owns their souls. Your orange master will NEVER take this on. The commies funneled 30 million dollars through the nra for trump to win; he owes them bigly. What do you suggest dumpster do about it? What would you like to see him do? How would he “blow things up”? Tweet them to death? Offer more “thoughts and prayers?” What should drumpf do about the “carnage” in New Orleans, Houston, D.C.?
” And every time something was proposed to stop it the gop blocked it.”
Really. Show your work.
At least you acknowledge Trump is -The Orange Master-.
Show my work? XXXXXX. What’s been proposed since Sandyhook and what’s been passed? A lot and nothing. What a stupid question. There’s no work to show because nothing has been done. Trump- the orange master of BS. Don’t assume I acknowledge anything.
trump is the Orange Master? Show your work.
Lesiak: you mean the Cripps and the Bloods are NRA members? They’ve registered their guns? Concealed carry permits?
no; just like everyone else.
I hear Progressives talk about delusional and they’re too damned blind to look in a mirror.
Richard get some professional help!
Are you serious dave?. NFL fans overwhelmingly support the anthem rule? Adults surveyed 1184. Out of over 300 million Americans. # of NFL viewers in the survey, 517, out of over 300 million Americans. This survey( by Yahoo ) came up with an overwhelming 53% approval of this ruling.
53% approve, 32% disapprove; remainder no opinion. I’d say that’s pretty overwhelming.
With an N that small compared to the number of viewers, that 53% is truly insignificant.
NFL decided to target PhD level ‘Blame America First’ folks, Hillary voters. They decided that their fans really needed to have love for BLM and hate for Trump.
How’d that work out?

Stay on point XXXXXX. The subject is Chicago and that your Champion Obama did nothing in eight years. Deflection when you got nothin.
Nowhere in the article was chicago mentioned. You’re off point batty. Just sayin.
I read her words and about tossed by cookies. The man who could not form a sentence without his speech writes and teleprompters was just so Super Amaze-balls. He definitely was awesome at putting the boot on the throat of capitalism. Remember we need social justice, that way we are all equally miserable in the end. Except for the enlightened few.

OB and Poor richard lesiak hate the Foxconn deal because Walker! but assumedly they loved Solyndra.
Remember? When the best and brightest of the Obamanauts did their due diligence and gave $535 million dollars of taxpayers cash to Obama bundlers to guarantee their loans, then filmed happy ads to be used in Democrat election campaigns. Then whoops! Solyndra goes belly up in short order.
Hey ABob. I got Obama’s Legacy…… right here.
I know, when and if the ex community organizer in chief can organize his library in south side Chicago, let’s go and ask to see the ads they filmed at Solyndra.
That’d be fun.

The Birth Of Irrational Anti’isms: The Death Of A Constitution!
Of course the MSM are drowning in nostalgia for Obama and his crew. Those were the days when all they had to do was think of new ways to fawn and coo over anything he said or did. Now they’ve got to contend with someone who not only fights back but beats them time and again at their own game, someone who’s more media savvy than all the media gurus, pundits and self-styled “journalists” combined. Their main challenge these days is how to ignore, dismiss or belittle any of the Trump administration’s accomplishments listed above while tirelessly beating the long-dead horse of “Russian collusion.” How I love watching their giddy predictions of a “blue wave” recede day by day into the distance.
I believe that squashing the state tax deduction maybe the most important aspect of the tax reform bill. Finally New York and California can no longer count on the rest of the country to subsidize their commitment to ever higher taxes. No longer can the limousine liberals in both states shrug off another round of tax hikes by rationalizing that “at least it’s deductible on my federal taxes.” Look for a lot of relocating millionaires and billionaires to Florida, Nevada and Texas.
In the 2018 ranking of states most dependent on federal money Calif. is 39th, NY is ranked 36th. You have to move to Kentucky, Miss., Alabama, etc to visit all your tax dollars.

Of course you completely ignore the major economic differences between those states you mentioned and those differences have got nothing at all to do with whether the states are governed by the political left or the political right. Those major economic differences make a huge differences in available jobs in those states because of the industries that are located in their states. In comparison to states it the north and the west, the southern and even some interior grain belt states will always be playing a game of economic catch up and will never likely surpass states in the east or the west. The cold hard facts are that there are geographical things that help steer certain types of industry toward certain geographical regions; for example you don’t typically grow wheat, corn, or cotton as an industry in the Rocky Mountains and you don’t typically put sea ports, steel mills, and major logging industries in Kansas.
